God of War remasters head PS Store

Cupboards well and truly stuffed.

Sony's HD remasters of acclaimed PS2 games God of War I and God of War II are on the PlayStation Store right now.

They're not cheap: they cost £14 a pop, according to the European PlayStation blog. Even bundled together they cost £24. Still, both were excellent on PS2, and with 720p graphics they may compare favourably to many of even today's best third-person action games.

Complementing their arrival is God of War: Ghost of Sparta turning up on PSP.

Also of note: Castle Crashers, the most successful game on Xbox Live Arcade. It's PS3 arrival comes with a free trial, too. Eurogamer's dusty Castle Crashers XBLA review can fill in the blanks.

Today's demo of note is Rock Band 3, although PlayStation Plus members have the option of sampling Vanquish's Challenge Mode if they wish.

Desirable add-on content includes the free FIFA 11 Ultimate Team update, God of War III skins and new Hot Zone maps for Medal of Honor.

Don't forget that new video streaming service MUBI arrives for PlayStation 3 today. This offers high-brow films for rental either individually or as part of a monthly subscription.
