The long-awaited arrival of platformer Trine headlines the Thursday PSN update this week, followed admirably by Bomberman Ultra and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Commander's Challenge.

Trine, developed by Frozenbyte, won considerable plaudits on PC - and at a higher price point. On PSN, the game costs £16.99 (€19.99).

Bomberman Ultra, according to Hudson, "combines the best features" of the series to bring you "one of the most comprehensive Bomberman games in history". An elaborate re-issue, but thankfully old-school in design. Bomberman Ultra costs £7.99 (€9.99).

C&C Red Alert 3 - Commander's Challenge, on the other hand, adds 50 special scenarios for £7.99 (€9.99). Think of it as a new game.

There are also numerous special offers on the PS Store. These include price-cuts for PixelJunk Racers, High Velocity Bowling and echochrome Micro to £3.99 (€4.99). Plus, The Super Stardust HD Double Pack has been chopped to £2.39 (€2.99) and Disney's Action Game feat. Hercules now costs £3.19 (€3.99).

PES 2010 and NBA Live demos are backup should you fall short of cash.

In add-on land, the free Batman: Arkham Asylum Challenge Room maps are a no-brainer (providing you have the game), and the second Red Faction: Guerrilla add-on - with two new modes and eight new maps - sounds enticing.
