Playstation Network Update: Boring Sport Edition

Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds

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.

PSN Down Today

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.

Go mow a lawn and make that dough!
