Well it is great to see a worthwhile update this week! It all starts with price drops, Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty is a must have at $9.99 and Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars becomes a lot more palatable at the new $5 dollar price point. I love these promotions and Sony needs to do them every week.

We have a few new titles this week as well, the first is another interactive art piece called .detuned. Not really my thing as I like games and stuff, but unique and pretty to say the least. Another BUZZ! Junior pack is on hand and two new PSN games as well. Mushroom Wars is a unique and accessible RTS and topotai: The Great Tree Story is a platformer/puzzle game that reminds me of Lost Vikings for some reason.

A new PSOne classic, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is joined by a bunch of new PSP digital titles. Nine titles were added with Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike being the highlights for me in the bunch.

There are a few worthwhile add-ons in the mix this week as well as some throwaway items. The BUZZ! Quiz TV Space Pack and Red Faction: Guerrilla Smasher Pack look good, but costumes for Hot Shots Golf and unappealing packs for High Velocity Bowling do not.

Of course we have overpriced themes, entertaining videos and some wallpapers round out the content this week. A good week with plenty to check out, for more details, please visit the official PlayStation Blog.
