Nov/Dec PS3 Store highlights

Games, glorious games*.

Following the arrival of a bunch of new stuff on PlayStation Network, Sony has announced plenty more is set to follow before the end of the year.

Tekken 5 PS3 goes online

Online battles, leaderboards, etc.

One of the PlayStation 3 Store's best downloadable games is about to get a bit better, Sony said today (well, they used different clichés), with the announcement that Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection will soon receive an update that adds online modes.

Tekken it home.

It's not often that you come across a game that redefines the sector it operates in, but to put it quite frankly, Tekken: Dark Resurrection is absolutely staggering. With its very first PlayStation 3 E-Distribution Initiative title, Namco has effectively annihilated just about every preconception you might have about budget downloadable games.

This isn't a decades old arcade port looking to sneak a few quid out of you for nostalgia's sake, it's a conversion of the very latest instalment of a hugely popular coin-op franchise, a game less than two years old. Not only that, but it's running in full 1080p, pleasingly enhanced with liberal use of the RSX chip's 'off-the-shelf' visual effects. It's not in any way limited either, matching the original arcade game in terms of content, including all 35 characters. It plays identically to the arcade version, has all the moves and techniques, and even has all of Tekken 5's stages built in as an unlockable Easter Egg.

All for a pitifully small £6.99.
