Another great week on the good old PSN! We have downloadable games for the PSP and PS3 in the form of Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure and Fatal Inertia EX. We also have a slew of add-on content for Hot Shots Golf, Rock Band (of course) and Guitar Hero III. The great surprises are free content for The Incredible Hulk, Pain and the MGS4 database!

But that is not all, no sir, we also have demos for Fatal Inertia EX, NCAA Football 09, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3, Hail to The Chimp and Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror for the PSP.

On the multimedia front we have game videos for Linger in Shadows, Pain, Fatal Inertia EX, Golden Axe: Beast Rider, Prince of Persia and Hail to the Chimp.

A great week but despite that we will still see comments like 'where is in game XMB?’ (promised soon) and 'where are the PS1 classics?' (good question). Ahh, how fickle we are as PS3 owners! Deets are below.
