The new PlayStation® Store will revolutionise the way you enjoy games, films and TV shows, no matter how and when you play or watch them.

Gone are the days when you need to hit the shops or stay in to wait for deliveries. Now if you want a new game for your PlayStation®3 or PS Vita, you can simply download it and play thanks to PlayStation® Store.

GAME: Journey PS3

Can gaming be a spiritual experience? If the haunting Journey is anything to go by, yes. It sees you take control of a hooded avatar in a sun-scorched desert. Guiding your character to a faraway mountain, you’ll encounter fellow travellers while undergoing the sort of emotional journey that has had gamers pouring their hearts out on message boards. This isn’t just a game, but a meditation on the journey of life itself. Soothing, calming and the perfect antidote to the carnage of first-person shooters.

GAME: When Vikings Attack PS3, Vita

A game where you’ll vow, “This is definitely my last go,” only to then carry on for five more hours, When Vikings Attack is ideal for either public transport or at home, given it’s available on both PS3 and Vita. The concept is wonderfully simple: Vikings are running amok and you need to hurl objects at them. Slick, cartoonish fun.

GAME: MOH Warfighter PS3

The Medal Of Honour franchise feels realistic enough at the best of times, but Warfighter goes further – it was written by US Tier 1 Operators. As you take down real-world terrorist threats, this first-person shooter will see you facing off against Somali pirates, rescuing hostages in the Philippines and much more.

FILM: The Bourne Legacy

So, Jason Bourne wasn’t the only super-soldier who refused to die: there was also Jeremy Renner’s drug-fuelled Aaron Cross. Director Tony Gilroy – who wrote the first three Bourne films – handles the action with gusto; the way Cross picks off agents while saving Dr Marta Shearing at her home will have you gasping.

FILM: American Reunion

The American Pie team makes a warm and welcome return as Stifler, Jim, Finch and the gang get back together for a school reunion. There are the gross-out gags that made the first films such a talking point (Stifler + cool-box = I’ll pass on a beer, thanks), while Reunion packs the emotional punch that paler imitations failed to emulate; the scenes between Jim and his dad (Eugene Levy) are, as ever, a highlight, with Jim encountering marriage problems and dad looking for love. It’s nine years since the last outing (2003’s American Pie: The Wedding), and by the film’s end you’ll be hoping for a fifth slice of pie in the near future.

TV SERIES: South Park season 15

One of the greatest TV shows of all-time maintains its levels of consistent excellence with one of its strongest seasons yet. Cartman might get big laughs in Ass Burgers, but, with Stan trying to move on following his parents’ split, the episode also has profound things to say about depression and the futility of existence. Fret not, there are gross-out laughs a plenty in the likes of HumancentiPad and much silliness in Broadway Bro Down. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone continue to prove they’re two of the greatest comedic talents of recent memory.
