News: Along with the original Tomb Raider.
Sony has performed their weekly update of the PlayStation Store and PS3 owners can now download, for $14.99, the arcade classic Marvel vs Capcom 2. The 2D fighter has been available on the Xbox Live Arcade for the last two weeks, but GameStop is making up for this lagtime by offering PS3 owners the chance to purchase a Marvel vs Capcom 2 bonus pack for the same price as the PSN version. The bonus pack includes a download code to get the game off of the PlayStation Store along with an 8-page manual, one month of free access to Marvel Digital Comics, and 2,000 Capcom Unity points (an online currency used to participate in the site's auctions).
A trio of PSone Classics have also been added to the store this week including the first adventure of Ms. Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. It is joined by the racing game Dead In The Water and the bowling game Ten Pin Alley.
Finally, a bunch of expansions and game add-ons have been added to the store for a variety of games including LittleBigPlanet, Pain
and Red Faction Guerrilla
