The new Playstation Plus titles are released this week. If none of those interest you, take a look at the new offerings from the Playstation Store. Playstation 4 highlights include a new free-to-play title for PS+ players, the stand-alone expansion for Wolfenstein and the Game of the Year edition of Middle-Earth. Playstation 3 players finally get a title that was released on PS4 in September 2014. Vita players get a rhythm shooter that is a three-way Cross-Buy title. As usual, there is also a plethora of DLC, although only one pack carries new trophies.
