PS Plus members get SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny

Out this week on PS3 and PS Vita is the lovable platformer Thomas Was Alone featuring Cross-Buy. It's $9.99 (or $7.99 if you have a PlayStation Plus account) as of today in North America, with a European release happening tomorrow. Also expect to find a 20-level DLC pack ($2.99) about a square with a jetpack, plus a commentary mode for the main game.

"Sony is a mega corporation; a big goliath of awesome tech and excellent button iconography," wrote creator Mike Bithell. "And for some reason, known best to themselves, they decided they wanted to let us indies play with their toys. Thomas is one of a massive wave of upcoming indie titles, which I hope will find whole new audiences. If you’ve never played an indie game before, take a chance on one of these games (not necessarily mine, obviously). We’d like to give you the opportunity to play slightly, well, differently."

In other PSN news, we've got that Resident Evil sale Hamza told us about and a complimentary copy of SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny on PSP/PS Vita for Plus members.
