I'm not going to lie to you: this week is pretty awful as far as new downloadable PS Vita games are concerned.

Is it even worth booting the PSN Store up on your handheld? Probably not, to be honest.

But that's not going to stop me from telling you what you can expect to find on Sony's digital store. Nope, it's not. Honestly.

Let's not delay this any longer, then. Onwards...

Full-price releases

There are zero new games for the PS Vita in the European store this week. None at all.

I mean, there is a demo for Knytt Underground, but you really should have grabbed that for free on PS Plus already.

There's also some DLC for Ragnarok Odyssey, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Zen Pinball 2, but none of it looks particularly enthralling.

American Vita owners can download MUD - FIM Motocross World Championship this week for $29.99, mind. It's not very good, as our reviewer suggests, so tread carefully.

There's also a new Ninja Gaiden bundle available, which contains Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus. $59.99 to you, me, and her.

PlayStation Plus games and offers

Can PS Plus content save the week? No, not on your nelly.

European PS Plus subscribers can take advantage of absolutely nothing this week for their PS Vita, while Americans get Plants vs Zombies for free.

Oh, American PS Plus subscribers can also take advantage of a nice number of PS Vita discounts, including money off titles like Escape Plan, Everybody's Golf, and Hustle Kings.

So, if you're a PS Plus subscriber in the US, you may well want to see if there's anything you've missed in that there promotion.

PlayStation Mobile releases

What is there to stick in your PSM hole this week, eh?

Well, there's Super Brain Eat 3 for 40p. This appears to be some sort of dungeon-crawler about eating brains. Doesn't look too shabby, especially for the asking price.

Unfortunately, that's your lot for this week. Cheers, Mr PlayStation Mobile.

PSP and PSone Classics

Sorry to sound like a broken record, but there's nothing new in this section, either.

Saying that, there are some interesting offers: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is down to $19.99, and Unchained Blades has been reduced to $14.69. But, errm, that's it.

Back again next week, soldiers.
