Harmonix has announced the next update for Rock Band and if you like punk (new school punk, that is), you’ll like this. There will be four tracks, which will come from The Offspring, Crooked X, and Avenged Sevenfold. Here’s the list;
Again, there isn’t much but there still is some good stuff this week. You can pick up Syphon Filter 3 from the PS1 for $5.99, and there some add-on content for Army of Two, Guitar Hero III, and Rock Band. There’s also a demo for Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars, which I’m excited to play. The rest of the stuff consists of a bunch of game videos, a blu-ray trailer, and two PS3 Themes.
For the PSP, you can purchase full games of Syphon Filter Dark Mirror and Syphon Filter 3 and you can download a free theme, wallpaper and some game music. Visit the Playstation Blog for complete details.
Did you pick up MGS4 at midnight last night? I didn’t, but I really wanted to. I haven’t even beaten the third one yet actually. I own it, but I haven’t had the time to play it. Once I get to it, I’ll buy MGS4 though. Anyway, here’s a video review of the game.
I haven’t heard of any of the bands in this weeks Rock Band update, but then again, I don’t listen to the “music” channel that is MTV. Anyway, this week you can pick up the MTV2 Pack on Xbox 360 today, or PS3 on Thursday, for $2.99 containing the songs below.
Metal Gear Solid 4 was scheduled for release on June 12, as any Playstation 3 owner probably already knows, but some people are already playing it. So far it’s not certain who is at fault here, but it’s likely from stores who have received early shipments. Either way, you might want to keep your eyes open at the shops in your town. A spokesperson from Konami has stated:
Unfortunately, these things happen. As much as we like see that no one breaks streets dates, no one can monitor every single moment that a title gets packed up for shipment and when its on its way to the stores… The store could be at fault as well, for letting someone get a copy before the street date.
I don’t know how hard it will really be to find an MGS4 Playstation 3 bundle the day Metal Gear Solid 4 launches, but if you want one really bad and don’t want to take the chance of not finding one on launch day, you should check out Amazon.com today. They will be pre-selling the North American MGS4 bundles this morning at 10am PST. I’m betting they’ll sell out quickly, so you better be ready for some fast mouse-clicking.
Activision has released a new track pack for Guitar Hero 3 today and it contains some of your favorite Motorhead tracks, which you can see below. This pack costs $6.25 and you can find it both on the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.

Motorhead – “Stay Clean”
Motorhead – “Motorhead”
In addition to the three new songs, they’ve also announced that they will be releasing three more content packs throughout June. The next update will contain the following three songs, which will be available on June 12th.
Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer has been at the top of Xbox Live for a while now, but Call of Duty 4 has come back to swoop in and reclaim the #1 position. Infinity ward seems to be fairly happy with this and has announced that this coming weekend, players can double experience points, which applies to both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.
If you’re looking for some new scenery in Unreal Tournament 3 on the Playstation 3, GamersHell has got your fix. They got a new set containing 20 more maps, so that should keep you busy for a while. They actually all come from UT3Mod.com, but GamersHell collected em all in an easy to download place.
The Rock Band update for next week has been revealed, and I have to say that it really is an odd one. There are two content packs, one for Jimmy Buffet and one for Disturbed. See! Weird combination, huh? The tracks will be available for download on Tuesday for the Xbox 360 and Thursday for the Playstation 3. Here are the specifics;
