Heavy Rain demo on PSN Store today

Plus: Flower price pressed right down.

A demo for Heavy Rain is the biggest attraction on the PlayStation Store today. Sony's huge PS3 exclusive was reviewed earlier and now awaits only its launch on 26th February. But can it do the numbers?

New games on the PS3 Store are Frogger and Switchball. Snore. But there's a hefty price cut for Flower - down from £6.29 to £2.39 - that makes the arty game cheap bordering on unavoidable. Read our Flower review.

Echochrome follow-up echoshift is demoed on PSP, as is the new SOCOM game and zombie-raising action game Undead Knights.

PSP Minis This is Football Management and The Terminator may be worth a look. Not sure how authentic the latter is.

The PSP's Digital Comic Store grows with more Tank Girl and (Marvel) Zombies - full list below - and the SingStar area in PlayStation Home has been decked out in preparation for Valentine's Day this weekend.
