The update starts with some game demos for Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds and Top Spin 3. Both boring sports to watch but fun to play, right? There’s also a new character for PAIN, a World of Warcraft song for Guitar Hero III, and the full “Doolittle” album from the Pixies and 3 songs from Weezer for Rock Band. There are also a whole bunch of game videos, a few blu-ray trailers and two PS3 themes.
For the PSP, you can buy Medievil Resurrection for $16.99, download a Medievil Resurrection interview trailer, and a Medievil wallpaper. Not a whole lot, but still good, since Medievil is a pretty fun game. You can visit the Playstation Blog for more information.
I just picked up the latest release “Last 2 Walk” from the rap group Three Six Mafia yesterday and noticed that there’s a song titled Playstation, so of course I switched right to it. During the chorus line they yell out “Play with your Playstation 3, Don’t play with me boy”. That’s pretty much the only mention of Sony’s console though.
It’s cool that the Playstation 3 is getting some love. It’s just too bad it’s in such a cheesy way. On a side note, after listening to the album, I’d have to recommend AGAINST the purchase of it. There’s just no more creativity left in those guys. If you want to hear the song, with explicit lyrics, click here.
If you were planning on playing anything online on your Playstation 3 today or buying anything on the Playstation Store, you’re out of luck. For about 6 hours today, starting at 8am Pacific Time the Playstation Network will be down for scheduled maintenance. You should be working anyway…even if you’re only 8 years old. Go mow a lawn and make that dough!
It was just recently announced that The Pixies album, Doolittle, would be hitting the digital stores for Rock Band next week but Harmonix threw in a little surprise. In addition to The Pixies album, there will also be a Weezer pack, which will contain three songs from their latest self-titled album. The usual prices apply. Here are the tracks.
The Playstation Blog just announced the “Playstation Experience” tour, which will give gamers the chance to play several of their games within their awesomely equipped vehicle designed for gaming. One of the coolest things about this tour though, is that LittleBigPlanet’s been announced to be on that bus. There will be two trucks heading across the country, so to find out which one will be heading near you, check out the schedules here and here.
The update this week is actually pretty good. You can download Fatal Inertia EX for $30, there’s add-on content for Hot Shots Golf, Metal Gear Solid 4, The Incredible Hulk, Guitar Hero III, and Rock Band.
Then, there are four demos, which should keep you busy this weekend. First off, you have the chance to play Fatal Inertia EX before you decide to buy it. Then there’s demos for NCAA Football 09, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3, and Hail to the Chimp.
There are also a bunch of game videos as usual, one blu-ray video, a PS3 theme, and some game music. Finally, there are also a few things for the PSP, such as a full game; Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure, a demo for Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, some game videos and a theme. If you want the complete details, visit the Playstation Blog.
There are some new tracks for Guitar Hero III today for the Xbox 360 and probably the Playstation 3 later today. The Coldplay Track Pack contains three songs from the band; Violet Hill, Yellow, and God Put a Smile Upon Your Face. The pack costs 500 Microsoft points, so download and mellow out.
The latest tracks for Rock Band are available for download. You can pick up “Rock and Roll Dream” by Crooked X, “Critical Acclaim” and “Afterlife” by Avenged Sevenfold, and “Hammerhead” from The Offspring. I really like that new Offspring song. You can pick them up on the Xbox 360 for 160 points each except for the Crooked X song which is only 80 points. You can find ’em on the PS3 on Thursday.
