Players who originally bought any of the titles for their PSP can re-downloaded the updated versions at no extra charge.
The PlayStation Store update also brings the North American debut of the original puzzle game Super Rub a Dub for $6.99, where players tilt the Sixaxis controller to lead a rubber duck through a shark-filled tub to rescue a chain of bubble-encased ducklings.
The arcade classic Gauntlet II is also being made available on the store for $4.99, as well as videos of upcoming Amiga shooter remake Super Stardust HD, classic arcade release Rampart, and a trailer for Midway's forthcoming shooter BlackSite Area 51.
