I am going to start this week with a public service announcement, simply because everyone who has a PS3 and loves FPS games needs to try Killzone 2. First click new user on your XMB, then instead of putting your address when prompted list a British one instead (I may or may not have used Buckingham Palace).
Once you have created a second user switch to it and visit the PlayStation Store. You will now have access to the Killzone 2 demo (region free of course) on the European PSN store. It is sheer stupidity that this is a Gamestop exclusive demo in North America when everyone should experience this game, it will convince you to buy it.
Now on to the North American PSN update! It was a good update with games, demos and more. The big new original game is 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, I really enjoy arcade style hockey (think SNES Wayne Gretzky Hockey or NHL Hitz) but I can't get into the art style for this game. The giant realistic heads on tiny bodies creeps me out. Hope it is good, I will be looking at reviews later this week before I decide anything. There is a demo for it, so feel free to try before you buy.
Burnout Paradise has been further enhanced with it's first DLC, the Party Pack. This local multiplayer add-on adds many driving mini-challenges that have you passing the controller around. A great idea as a party game and very innovative for this genre. They have also release the Ultimate Bundle of Burnout Paradise that contains the game, previous expansions and the Party Pack at a single price and download.
Aside from another free pack for NARUTO: Ultimate Ninja STORM (got to get me this game) and a course for Hot Shots Golf the rest of the add-on content is not so good. Another useless LittleBigPlanet pack (that should have been free), not so interesting tracks from the rhythm game, and more lame High Velocity Bowling characters.
