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. 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!

Playstation Store Update

Pixeljunk Monsters

Not a lot on the Playstation Store this week. There isn’t even anything to play. All of those European tracks for Rock Band is available now though. You can also download the PixelJunk Monsters album for $2.99, if you’re one of those hardcore videogame music junkies. On top of that though, there are some game videos, movie trailers and a couple of PS3 themes. Very dull indeed.

There are a few goodies for the PSP though. You can download the full game of The Con, and there are two demos for Hot Shots Golf with varying difficulties. The other stuff consists of a few game videos, game music, and a PSP wallpaper. Yay!

Playstation Store Update

Haze Artwork

Not a whole lot up there this week, but there are some good demos. You’ll most definitely want to try the Haze demo and The Bourne Conspiracy demo. Maybe you’ll even give the GRID demo a chance.

You can also pick up Rocketman: Axis of Evil for $9.99. For add-on content, you’ve got an expansion pack for PixelJunk Monsters and new tracks for Rock Band and Guitar Hero III. There’s a buttload of game videos too as well as some movie trailers, PS3 themes and wallpapers. For all the details, visit the Playstation Blog.

In case you were wondering, you won’t be able to purchase anything from the Playstation Store today, as it’s currently being updated. It went offline this morning at 8am Pacific and will be back tonight at 11pm Pacific.

Playstation Store Update

Not really a whole lot this week. The new metal track pack for Guitar Hero III has some cool songs though and if you’re a fan of Grateful Dead, Rock Band has you covered. Don’t forget also, though, that you can download the demo for Echochrome on the Japanese Playstation Store.
