PS3 Essentials offering downloadable versions of triple-A games in Europe

PlayStation 3 owners living in Europe can now download classic titles like Uncharted, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Infamous through the PlayStation Store, as part of the PS3 Essentials platform, PlayStation Blog announced today.

The storefront is similar to the Greatest Hits designation given to select retail PS3 titles, but instead offers shoppers a downloadable option at a similarly discounted price. However, though the titles are discounted from the price of most downloadable PS3 releases, some PlayStation Blog commenters have pointed out that they can be found for even cheaper at retail.

The full list of PS3 Essentials is posted below. We've reached out to Sony to find out if a similar promotion is coming stateside.
