Castlevania demo leads PSN update

Plus: Borderlands DLC! DeathSpank! Lara!

There's plenty for everybody on the PlayStation Store today. I hope. Otherwise I'll look stupid for saying that.

There are demos of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (review), MMA, My Sims: Sky Heroes (aerial combat) and WRC FIA World Rally Championship.

There are also free trials of this week's new games: the excellent Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue and TerRover.

All the various Live Season leagues for FIFA 11 are being released this week - as is the game on Friday, plus there's new Borderlands DLC in the shape of Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.

PSP owners can't be told enough times to download the God of War: Ghost of Sparta demo, either.

There are also the Digital Comics Store and Video Store updates to take in. The latter welcomed the new Prince of Persia film to rent, as well as classics Rambo, Snatch, Layer Cake, Crouching Tiger and Bad Boys.
