US PlayStation Store update gets Mass Effect 2, PSone classic
Posted: 19.01.2011 11:49 by Simon Priest Comments: 5
Now available on those virtual US PlayStation Store shelves is Mass Effect 2 as a full downloadable title, with a full game trial for PS Plus subs.

As exciting as that is though, what about Metal Slug X as the new PSone Classic? Then there's Mega Man as the new PSone Classic Import.

Remember these are the US PlayStation Store updates as the EU PSN hasn't got this week's delivery posted up yet. That's good-for-nothing European labour for you, always 'on break' or unionising something.

Here's this week's US PlayStation Store update:
