An okay update if you don't have an X360, otherwise it falls flat.

PlayStation Network Update: 03/06/2008

So, on this weeks Multiplayer Chat broadcast on BlogTalkRadio I discussed the rumoured entries in this weeks PSN update and I was mostly right. It is a pretty good week if you only own a PS3 – although most of the content has been on XBLA for a few days already.

On the Demo front we see a demo for the new PSN game Rocketmen: Axis of Evil, really nice to see a demo right away for these titles. Also of course there is the full version of the game as well as flOw for the PSP (only 7.99!).

On the music game front we of course have the Grateful Dead songs for Rock Band and the Modern Metal Pack for Guitar Hero 3.

Last but not least we have a Trailer for NBA Ballers, Movie trailers for 21, Hancock and wallpapers/themes for Condemned 2 and Lost Planet.

The update could have been worse, but we are still waiting for an MGS4 Demo, Home Beta and LittleBigPlanet Demo. It’s also odd to see no PS1 games this week, at least it beats the dribbles Wii owners see every week!
