The Playstation Store will receive its weekly update Monday due to the New Year holiday. When the update goes live, PS Plus subscribers can expect to be able to download both "NBA Jam: On Fire Edition" for the Playstation 3 and "Chronovolt" on the PS Vita for free.
Playstation Community Manager Morgan Haro made the announcement on the PS Blog for the final update to the PS Plus Instant Game Collection for 2012. For those unfamiliar, "NBA Jam: On Fire Edition" is the over the top arcade basketball game that puts big heads on the bodies of NBA stars as they go for sky high dunks. "Chronovolt" is a puzzle-platformer with a steampunk flavor
Here's the official description for both.
NBA JAM On Fire Edition (PS3)
You don’t have to be a basketball nut to have a blast with this one. If you’ve played NBA JAM before, you know it’s all about fast-paced arcade-style basketball action. Of course it features all your favorite NBA players and legends, but with all the fun and irreverence that has hooked countless gamers and tons of trash-talking multiplayer sessions. Crazy modes, secret teams, and rock-solid online play make this a great addition to your collection.
Chronovolt (PS Vita)
Chronovolt is a puzzle-platformer with steampunk influences where players control the Chronosphere, a discovery that contains the energy that powers time. You’ll guide it through levels using all of the PS Vita’s controls including tilt, the analog sticks, and rear-touch to have a completely unique experience. Not to mention that by collecting power-ups known as Chronovolts, players are able to manipulate time, such as rewinding the game to save yourself from a fall that would have otherwise resulted in death. Set in three distinct worlds including a lush Mayan world, a snow-covered Chinese landscape, and a futuristic setting; PS Vita gamers will find plenty to love with Chronovolt.
Playstation Plus owners will also have several games with additional discounts than regular PSN users will see when the Playstation Store is updated later this afternoon.
