Some great demos to give you a shocking good time, but there's not much else this week on the PSN.

PlayStation Network Update: 05/21/2009

Hey PSone classics! Alright let's see…hmm, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six? Err? Ford Racing? What the hell? Ah well, it is PSone classics, and beggars can't be choosers I suppose.

The big news this week is the formerly pre-order only bonus inFAMOUS demo. Really excited about this game and I cannot wait to try the demo. We also have PS3 demos for Tiger Woods 10 and Disney/Pixar's Up!

It's a nice week for demos as well on the PSP with the Monster Hunter Freedom Unite demo. This multiplayer demo will give North Americans a great taste of this smash hit game.

There's add-on content this week, but none of it really worthwhile in my honest opinion. There are more useless LittleBigPlanet add-ons featuring costumes and stickers. There's also another Pain character and an actual retail priced F.E.A.R. 2 pack that looks pretty minimal for a seven dollar add-on.

The typical Rock Band and Guitar Hero tracks are highlighted by the Alice Cooper songs featured on Rock Band. There are also many preview videos for some great upcoming games and Blu-ray releases.

All in all this is an odd week. Most of the best content is free leaving us die-hard fans nothing much worthwhile to spend our money on. Below is a list of all the items added to this week's PSN update. For more details, please visit the official PlayStation Blog.
