PlayStation® Store reinvigorates both PlayStation®3 and PS Vita, adding another dimension to the twin console powerhouses. With the updated PlayStation® Store, you can download a wealth of films, games and more for constant entertainment.

No matter where you are, as long as you’re connected to the internet, you can download and enjoy such hit films as Will Smith’s Men In Black 3, Marc Webb’s dazzling The Amazing Spider-Man, Sacha Baron Cohen’s laugh-riot The Dictator, the entire collection of James Bond films and much more.

GAME: Littlebigplanet karting (PS3)

“If you dream it, you can race it,” boasts the tagline, and so it proves. Let your imagination run wild as you build and create your own races and adventures in this karting spin-off from the LittleBigPlanet franchise. Available on PS3, the detail on the characters (Sackboy, Sackgirl and the rest), vehicles and background is astonishing, as is the need to keep on playing. Too addictive, too lovingly rendered and too clever to be dismissed as mere ‘fun’. Fast, furious and frenetic, this is an example of truly great gaming.

GAME: Far Cry 3 (PS3)

It’s a stunning first-person open-world shooter available on the PS3, but the sheer attention to detail and work that has gone into creating the fictional lush tropical island is enough to impress Sir David Attenborough. Your goal might be to escape, but developer Ubisoft has done such a stunning job, you’ll find yourself wanting to stay.

GAME: PlayStation all-stars battle royale (PS3, PS Vita)

Take some beloved gaming characters and have them knock seven shades of shinola out of each other; that’s the premise for this enjoyable fighting sim, available on PS3 and PS Vita. Nathan Drake (Uncharted), Kratos (God Of War) and more feature.

FILM: Killer joe

Renaissance man Matthew McConaughey confirms his status as one of the most exciting actors around in Killer Joe, William Friedkin’s bleak, bloody and brutal tale of a snivelling hick (Emile Hirsch) who hires a killer to bump off his mother for insurance money. The now infamous chicken drumstick scene will stay with you.

FILM: Red Lights

Sigourney Weaver returns to the world of ghost-busting, this time she’s out to debunk fake psychics and prove that there’s always a rational explanation when things go bump in the night. She’s aided by Cillian Murphy, and the two of them take a special interest when superstar psychic Robert De Niro steps out of retirement after 30 years. Unsettling and likeable in equal measure, director Rodrigo Cortés, who previously impressed with claustrophobic Ryan Reynolds vehicle Buried, is one to watch.

TV SERIES: Modern Family

With Series 4 currently airing on TV, those yet to enjoy this unashamedly feel good sitcom should download seasons 1-3 to get acquainted. Modern Family – about three different but related families – is proof that sitcoms can be smart and precisely-written while being mainstream and universally beloved. Married With Children great Ed O’Neill is wonderful as taciturn patriarch Jay Pritchett, but it’s Ty Burrell as endearingly optimistic, child-like son-in-law Phil Dunphy who possibly steals the show. And yes, that is the love interest from Happy Gilmore as Claire Dunphy.
