PAIN and rock and roll.

PlayStation Network Update: 11/21/2007

Any day we see new and original games on the PSN is a good day in my opinion. Today we see the release of the anticipated PAIN, a PSN exclusive as well as some content for Resistance: Fall of Man, Motorstorm, Guitar Hero 3, Rock Band and the full Shivering Isles expansion for the amazing game Oblivion. Rounding out the update is a number of videos, trailers and wallpapers. Great update Sony, but I am still waiting for official themes and the Assassin’s Creed patch, keep reading for details on all the updates. Note, unless it says (free) next to the title there is a cost associated with the content, login to your region’s PSN store to see the cost to purchase the features/games/content.

Downloadable Games

A hilarious original title for the PSN, in PAIN you load characters into a super-sized, ultra-powerful slingshot and launch them into an active, physics-controlled environment filled with unreal yet incredibly funny situations. You score points by stringing together PAINful collisions and unleashing chaos on the environment. There are multiple single player game modes and then you can take the action online against others to out crazy each other.

Shivering Isles, the full official expansion for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is available to download on the PSN. Enter a massive new realm in Oblivion with unique locations, dungeons, and dozens of quests. There are all new creatures, weapons, clothing; you can even have custom armour forged for you.
