Darkness demo on PS3 Store

US gets Castlevania COTN.

Sony's PlayStation Network shop has been updated with a playable demo of The Darkness in the UK, while the US store welcomes the addition of a PS3/PSP-compatible Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Our demo's a single-player offering that weighs in at 1443MB. You can play it in 720p, 1080i or 1080p. No word on what's in it, but bank on it showing off a few of our Jackie's tentacular talents. The full version's out on PS3 today, and you can read our 360 review for more on whether it's any good.

Other additions to the UK store include the latest Grand Theft Auto IV trailer and teasers for Rainbow Six Vegas and Pixar's Ratatouille film.

Meanwhile, the US store gets Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Often declared the best of the Castlevanias, it's already seen release on Xbox Live Arcade and costs the same USD 10 here, but with the added benefit that you can copy it onto your PSP if you've got the latest firmware and don't fancy playing it on the PS3.

Otherwise it's trailer city and the US store's the mayor, with offerings for inFAMOUS, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Ratchet & Clank: Future, Heavenly Sword (making-of), the films The Brothers Solomon, Resident Evil: Extinction, I Am Legend, The Big One and Underdog.
