If you can't wait until tomorrow to find out what new and returning games will be offered up in the next PlayStation Store update, then read on and spoil the surprise!

No matter if you've got a PlayStation 3 or a PlayStation Vita, there's some big stuff coming tomorrow. On the console side, PS3 owners will be getting a digital version of Ubisoft's new much-anticipated open world FPS release, Far Cry 3. Along with that, BioWare and EA are finally giving PlayStation fans a chance to go back and see where it all began, as the original Mass Effect hits the PS3 as a digital release. (Or, you can get all three games in the Mass Effect Trilogy, available both in physical and digital forms starting tomorrow.) Two other games will round out the selection of physical titles also being offered digitally: the niche Japanese shoot `em up Under Defeat HD Deluxe Edition, and Shaun White: Snowboarding.

On the not-quite-as-gigantic side of things, PSN will be playing host to a number of new digital-only releases this week: Page Chronica, Rotastic, and Guardians of Middle-Earth. I've played a bit of Guardians of Middle-Earth, and it's a fun MOBA-style game featuring both well-known and under-appreciated characters from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings universe. While I'm not as familiar with the other two releases, I'm curious about Page Chronica-it's a 2D puzzle platformed, and looks like it could have a style that's right up my alley.

Over in the land of the Vita, Uncharted fans will be able to get their hands on Uncharted: Fight for Fortune, the new action-adventure turn-based card game which brings together major characters, items, and themes from all of the Uncharted games. Those who own Uncharted: Golden Abyss-which should now be anybody subscribed to PS+ at the least-will be able to beef up Fight for Fortune by unlocking additional artifacts and upgrades.

For me, however-and no offense to the Uncharted series-far more excited is the digital release of DJ Max Technika Tune. As a part of Pentavision's DJ Max series of music/rhythm games, Technika Tune is built upon the touchscreen-based side project to the series that previous hit arcade. I got a chance to play a bit of this at this year's Tokyo Game Show, and I already know that I need it.

Finally, some really interesting releases in the digital space. The PS2 Classics line will be getting a new title: Punchline's somewhat obscure yet very intriguing social adventure game Chulip. The goal of the game? Make friends with the various inhabitants of the town you've just move to, and try your best to impress them enough that they'll let you kiss them. Yes, I'm serious-and no, it's not quite as creepy as it sounds. Or, hmm-maybe it is. On the PS1 side of things, I'm very excited, as it looks like we're getting a whole bunch of PS1 import titles: Art Camion Sugorokuden, LUP Salad, Vehicle Cavalier, Zanac X Zanac, Makeruna Makendo 2, Finger Flashing.

I was all excited to see this thread title pop up until I realized the Plus stuff wouldn't be listed yet.

That actually sounds fairly boring. Unless you're buying disc-based games off the PSN instead of on disc. I am disappoint.

Any news on what games they are doing free for the month of December?

Bioshiock 2 is a rumored plus offering this month.

EDIT - Dangit Kirk!

I thought that was EU? Or is that Batman?

I so can't decide whether I want to invest in a Vita. And PS+ for that matter. Decisions, decisions...

Posted on Dec 3, 2012, 10:26:41 AM PST
So do I have to have played Bioshock 1 to play Bioshock 2?

Not a rumor, good sir.

Nope...but it helps with familiarity of the story.

I'd definitely suggest playing them in order. Bioshock does a much better job of introducing the player to Rapture IMO. In this way, Bioshock 2 almost assumes you're familiar with it.

I was all ready to pay for plus again and I keep getting free months from the stuff I bought over the holiday.

3 months with the vita bundle
1 month with Journey CE
1 month with GoW Saga

If there's one with the R&C collection (not sure yet), then I've got half a year of plus lined up!

Yea, it didnt look like I will be getting anything this week. Even with the plus stuff (Bioshock 2) I already have. I do wonder when the Wii U are going to do their weekly update.

Not really, but you have to play Bioshock 1 reguardless.

Posted on Dec 3, 2012, 10:30:34 AM PST
I'm glad I didn't buy Bioshock 2 yet, now I can play through it.

Ah ha. Well then, I see you've got sources. Nothing else confirmed yet?

Is the 12 deals of Christmas on PSN only for EU?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012, 10:37:02 AM PST
I think so :(

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012, 10:38:06 AM PST
I've been holding off as it will come with the next Bioshock.

The Playstation Blog guy did say this in the comments -

"Stay tuned to these updates throughout the month, and I think you'll find that we'll have plenty of content to match EU this December!"

Surely he knows he'll be burned at the e-stake if they don't deliver!
