PlayStation Store Update: A Nightmare in North America

The arrival of Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat might take headline precedence, but Madden NFL 12's demo gets the lead image glory. Sorry, Mr. Krueger, but you're simply lacking in screen shots.

The fourth (and final?) downloadable fighter for NetherRealm's Mortal Kombat arrives today on the PlayStation 3, which you can buy solo or as part of a bundle with Rain, Skarlet and Kenshi. Or you can buy the downloadable version of Far Cry 2. Or add-ons for Worms 2: Armageddon, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and other games that don't have Armageddon in their titles. Or you can snap up the Def Leppard pack for Rock Band 3, which does not contain "Armageddon It," but does feature "Bringin' On The Heartbreak."

And if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can pre-order some of the PlayStation Network PLAY titles at a discount, including Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Online Edition and Renegade Ops.

Venture forth for the latest additions to the North American PlayStation Store, listed below.
