POP HD leads PSN Store stampede

Oh Sandy.

Today on the EU PlayStation Store you'll find the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in HD.

It's the best of the soon to be re-released trilogy, but it'll cost a considerable 12 to own.

Since those days the series has evolved, of course - into Assassin's Creed. Check out our 10/10 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood review to find out how.

Incidentally, Eurogamer's review of the Prince of Persia HD trilogy will go live tomorrow morning. Hang on until then, unless you're desperate.

Sony is also offering Red Faction: Guerrilla as a full downloadable game. We got the wrong end of the stick earlier and thought this was a new strategy, but Sony soon put us right and said full games have been offered on the PSN Store for a while.

Blush.

Today's other new game of note is Crazy Taxi, the HD remake. Great game on Dreamcast - as good on PS3? You tell us.

There's a ton of additional PS3 game content on offer today, including stuff for Vanquish, SSFIV, Creed: Brotherhood - not that you'll be playing this yet - and the paid-for update to PlayTV.

What's more, PopCap puzzle game Peggle has arrived on PSP.

Oh, and there are songs by Slash for Rock Band 3, and he's brilliant.
