PSN gets a new puzzle game and a bunch of trailers

by: Chuck -
Another quiet week for PSN downloads as they are only releasing one thing that's playable (the puzzle game Piyotama for $2.99).  If you're up for some non-interactive entertainment then you might want to check out two new bits of Heavenly Sword including a making of segment and an anime segment.  Rounding out the list is the Turok trailer from E3 along with movie trailers for 10,000 BC, Fred Claus, Superbad, and the Perfect Stranger Blu Ray colllection (yes I'm serious). 

Today’s PLAYSTATION®Store update will feature the latest PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) downloadable title, Piyotama, as well as new Heavenly Sword content, including the  first episodes in a series of five “Making of” videos and five stunning animated episodes capturing the history behind Heavenly Sword. Also check out the Turok trailer from E3 and movie trailers for 10,000 B.C., Fred Claus, Superbad and Perfect Stranger (Blu-ray Disc® release).
