Well there are a lot of things on this weeks PSN update, but they are mostly videos and themes. We do have one new downloadable PSN game and it is Matt Hazard: Blood Bath & Beyond. The original Matt Hazard game is a bargain bin favorite, average gameplay with some key moments, hopefully this side scroller is more unique and enjoyable. Thankfully there is a demo for the game which is always nice to see!

Speaking of demos we also have one for the much anticipated vertical game Dark Void. What is a vertical game you ask? I don't know yet, but apparently you fly during much of Dark Void and I am excited to try it out.

Add-ons for PAIN, Dragon Ball, and MX vs. ATV are joined by the newest Borderlands expansion. Mad Moxi's Underdome is the homage to the last Mad Max movie and is obviously a perfect setting for the Borderlands game which is so clearly inspired by the Mad Max franchise.

There are a few new PSP downloads to grab in the form of Pinball Heroes Bundle, Bomberman Land ,and Dungeon Explorer. We also cannot forget Qore. The only notable thing this month in the video magazine is that they may have leaked a February 16th release date for Heavy Rain! That would be good news if true indeed!  Actually though, it looks like Qore was wrong (some official magazine!), Heavy Rain is launching February 23rd in North America.

Many videos, themes and wallpapers for both the PSP and PS3 and a sale on some Ubisoft titles round out this large if rather ho-hum update. For more details, please visit the official PlayStation Blog.
