Happy New Year everybody! As we look forward to the next 12 months, we've got to ask ourselves, "will 2013 be the year of the PS Vita?"

If we're honest, probably not. But that doesn't mean we can't have some good jolly fun with it anyway.

The European PSN store hasn't been updated this week - I guess the EU bigwigs were still hungover from NYE - but the American store has been restocked with some new PlayStation Plus titles to grab.

Here we go!

Full-price releases

This week sees Chronovolt pop up on the US PSN store. It's not great, and not really worth the $4.99. Ho hum. Still, if you're a PS Plus subscriber, scroll down for some sort-of good news.

The AR Play 2012 Holiday Bundle is more interesting. It bundles together Table Ice Hockey, PulzAR, Table Top Tanks, Table Top Tanks Toy Tanks Set DLC, Table Soccer, Table Soccer Match Day Game Pack DLC, Cliff Diving, Cliff Diving Additional Cliffs DLC & Fireworks, all for $6.25.

Now, some of those are free anyway, and others aren't very good. However, it's still well worth checking out if you like some good old augmented reality action.

Oh yes - Jetpack Joyride goes free this week. It originally cost cash, and now it's free. You can't really argue with that.

PlayStation Plus games and offers

PS Plus users! You get the decidedly average Chronovolt for free. Hooray?

Aside from that, there are also some nice discounts in the store. For example, Sound Shapes is 30 percent off, now just $7.35.

Well actually, that's the only discount on Vita games - all the others are discounts for PlayStation 3 games. Booo!

That's your lot this week - nothing too fancy, but it is the first week back after all. See you again next week!
