Premium Downloads - 11th to 18th Jan

Steam, VC, PSN, Live.

Hello and welcome to another Friday afternoon where we look around the Internet and go oh yes and you can download that if you buy it. Not much to get though, really, unless like Tom you are excited about the Virtual Console arrival of 1080 Snowboarding. Psst and Riot Zone.

Or you could be Dan who does everything but gets credited for nothing. He reckons the weekend special offer on Steam bundling UFO: Afterlight and Earth 2160 together for USD 19.95 is proper worth it in his Aston Villa accent. Because of the former game, mind you. The latter, he says, is rubbish.

Steam is also offering Painkiller Overdose for the same special price. But we won't tell you about that.

Meanwhile, those of you thumbing through Live will find little of note. Just the Arcade release of Boogie Bunnies (800 Points) this week. So what about some themes? Sexy Alice Murray from Army of Two is in one (150 Points), and there are a bunch of rock themed options like Sex Pistols and Motorhead to choose from.

Those in the US got little else either, only some Rock Band songs.

It was also a little bare in the PlayStation Store cupboard this week, with only more Folklore guff to get or some Guitar Hero III songs those ones on Live got before Christmas.

However, in the US the Store was crammed with PlayStation Eye games Tori-Emaki and Mesmerize: Trace (both USD 1.99), as well as a Blast Factor Bundle (USD 12.99) with the full game, Multiplayer and Advanced Research pack inside.

They got some MotorStorm tracks we already have, too, plus more Rock Band songs.
