The North American PlayStation Store is the one thing lighter this week after the Thanksgiving holiday, with Dead Nation leading the short pack of newly playable and downloadable games for the PlayStation 3 and PSP.
Joining Housemarque's excellent top-down zombie shooter is Funky Lab Rat and a pair of PlayStation One imports. But the biggest draw for people who might be me or my parents is the fifth episode of PlayStation Network reality show The Tester 2, because I'm in this one. Remember, I didn't go on the show to make friends, I went there to rub elbows with Adrianne Curry.
For the full list of newly downloadable things for the PS3 and the PSP, read on.
