PlayStation Network Update: Jak and Daxter head to the Vita


I appol­o­gize for this being a day late. Yes­ter­day was a mad house of run­ning around and then the Microsoft bomb shell that was dropped late yes­ter­day after­noon, I just didn’t have time to post this. But I am mak­ing in up by post­ing this first thing today. There is plenty for both PS3 and Vita users this week as we see the release of two Vita titles on the PSN and we see yet anther fan­tas­tic title hit the PS+ Instant Game Col­lec­tion. Hit­ting in full down­load­able form this week is Disney’s Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two finally shows up on the Vita, the game will run you $29.99. The Jak and Dax­ter Col­lec­tion that has been sit­ting on the PS3 for some time now heads over the Vita. You can pick the title up for $26.99, the game is also avail­able for PlaySta­tion 3 and I snatched a copy at my local Tar­get a week or so ago for $14.99. The col­lec­tion includes Jak & Dax­ter: The Pre­cur­sor Legacy, Jak 2, and Jak 3, all of which I have never played (yes you can rag on me for not play­ing these awe­some games), but I do plan on play­ing through them very soon. There is a new col­lec­tion avail­able on the PSN for the PlaySta­tion 3 con­sist­ing of a ulti­mate Sonic the Hedge­hog col­lec­tion. The col­lec­tion will run you $29.99 but comes with an aston­ish­ing 9 titles plus the more recent Sonic the Hedge­hog 4: Episodes 1&2. Here is the list below:


  1. Sonic Adven­ture
  2. Sonic Adven­ture DX Upgrade
  3. Sonic Adven­ture 2
  4. Sonic Adven­ture 2 DLC
  5. Sonic CD
  6. Sonic The Hedgehog
  7. Sonic The Hedge­hog 2
  8. Sonic the Hedge­hog 4: Episode 1
  9. Sonic the Hedge­hog 4: Episode 2


All those titles for $29.99 is a great deal. Typ­i­cally you would pay that for both of the Sonic 4 episodes. There are two games that I would have included in this pack to really make it com­plete, Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuck­les. If you are going to include two of the four Gen­e­sis titles, why not include the last two that are equally as great? Any­way, if you do down­load the bun­dle, give Sonic CD a try, it is still con­sid­ered the defin­i­tive Sonic title. For you PlaySta­tion Plus mem­bers you get one of my more recent favorite sand­box games, Saint’s Row: The Third. This open world title may resem­ble Grand Theft Auto, but goes in the oppo­site direc­tion and does not take itself seri­ously. Jump­ing off ran­dom build­ings and pulling your para­chute at the last minute is a blast and there are tons of over the top set pieces to enter­tain you while you are play­ing the story. The game can be fin­ished with a co-op part­ner, so if you or any of your PS+ friends are look­ing for a fun co-op game, look no fur­ther. For those who play Uncharted 3’s mul­ti­player, there is new items for you to buy as well as new tour­na­ment prizes that will con­tinue though out the sum­mer. If you have never played Uncharted 3’s mul­ti­player, every­one is eli­gi­ble for the tour­na­ments. You get 10 tour­na­ment tick­ets that are refreshed weekly, and if you want to pur­chase more you can. For every­thing here and any­thing that I didn’t cover you can head over to the Offi­cial PlaySta­tion Blog to check out the whole list.
