This week, Gamasutra rounds up the titles released for the major console and portable digital delivery services including titles from the newly launched 3DSWare/eShop and newly returned PSN.
[Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the titles released for the major console and portable digital delivery services, as compiled by console digital editor Ryan Langley, including the latest 3DSWare and titles from the newly renewed PlayStation Network.] While the PlayStation Network is back up and running, this is the second week in a row in which we have not seen an update to the Xbox Live Arcade. Admittedly, E3 is the worst time to release something, but even still -- a single release could have been nice. The 3DSWare shop is also now open, allowing the first 3DS Virtual Console titles and the first free downloads. Hopefully we'll see more from this in the future. PlayStation Store (North America)
