PlayStation Store Update for the Week of August 24, 2010

Playstation 3 Screenshot - 867503

It's time for another round of PlayStation Network updates. This week PlayStation Plus subscribers get Mushroom Wars, Vempires and the PSX classic 2Xtreme along with a few other bonuses.

Shank makes its debut this week for $14.99 and MotorStorm 3D Rift, which supports 3D. Unfortunately, most of us probably won't be able to make use of that feature. Luckily, it can be played just as well in 2D.

Those who are on the fence about Shank can download the massive 1.97GB trial version (which by the looks of it is the full game, but locked).

Check out the list below for all of this week's updates.
