North American PSN Update; July 30, 2013

Welcome to this week's PlayStation Store update. The first round of summer indie content has officially hit, and beloved, former PlayStation Portable title PixelJunk Monsters graces the PlayStation Vita; for the official breakdown of this headlining title, take a peek at Kyle's review of the acclaimed tower defense game.

No Instant Game titles left the store this week, so take this as a reminder to download those great games while they're still free. Speaking of which, the PS Vita version of Dokuro accompanies the rest of the great Instant Game Collection in this content push.

Max Payne 3, as well as its Ultimate Edition, also goes on the cheap this week, so gamers who haven't experienced this Rockstar gem should take this cost-efficient scenario into consideration; Steven Williamson's official review of Max Payne 3 can be found here, if you're still not convinced.

Enjoy this week's PlayStation Store Update!

Unhappily ever after. That’s how it starts. The Orb resurfaces and the classic characters return. Kobbler with his mania, Princess with her endless boredom.
