Resident Evil 4, Saints Row 2 & Altered Beast Are... Uh, New on the PlayStation Store

It's a big week for old games on the North American PlayStation Store. Resident Evil 4, Saints Row 2 and even Altered Beast are new to PlayStation 3 owners who prefer to buy their games over the internet.

But it's not all re-releases and rehashes on PSN this week, with Cubixx, Bolt and Burnout Crash! rounding out the list of newly playable and purchasable games. There's even a new NBA 2K12 demo!

On the expansion front, don't miss Fallout: New Vegas' "Lonesome Road" add-on, but maybe miss the rest.

PlayStation Plus subscribers with a thirst for Resident Evil nostalgia are well served this week, with gratis copies of the first three PlayStation games waiting for you. Here's everything that awaits PS3 and PSP owners on the recently refreshed PlayStation Store.
