US PS Store updated

20 November 2007

Today's special early Thanksgiving PS Store update is now live. Here's a list of the boatload of content which should clog your HDD's with gaming goodness just in time for turkey day.

The two downloadable games in the form of PSEye titles. The cuddly Operation Creature Feature weighs in at $4.99 and 135 MB, and interactive fish tank title Aquatopia is available for $1.99 at a size of 38.9 MB. More info on these titles can be found in our earlier report.

One new demo is available this week - MX vs. ATV. Own the off-road by taking control of an ATV, MX bike or Offroad Buggy and tearing through the terrain in this robust demo. It will take up a reasonable 714 MB.

Several price drops on current PS Store titles have been implemented until November 29th. We highly recommend Everyday Shooter at its reduced price of $4.99, but if you don't have them, Calling All Cars, flOw, and Pixel Junk Racers will all be available for $4.99.

The downloadable add-ons are as follows:

flOw DL Pack ($2.99)
