F.E.A.R. 2 demo heads PS Store refresh

Plus plenty else to keep you busy too.

Sony has stuffed the PlayStation Store with a F.E.A.R. 2 demo and plenty of other bits and bobs.

There's Episode One of the Penny Arcade Adventures series (GBP 7.99 / EUR 9.99), an American-themed question pack for Buzz! to celebrate Barack Obama's inauguration (GBP 3.99 / EUR 4.99), and a Time is Money extra for Skate 2 (GBP 3.19 / EUR 3.99).

The latter unlocks all the locations, skaters and gear that would otherwise be restricted to finishing the career and online modes. Time is money. Skate 2 launches here today, and you can find our freshly-minted review elsewhere on the site.

The PS Store also offers a free fifth pack of additional content for Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm. Inside are four new versus events as well as an additional support character.

The PSP gets Tom Clancy's EndWar (GBP 39.99 / EUR 49.99), Riff: Everyday Shooter (GBP 6.29 / EUR 7.99) and EA Replay (GBP 15.99 / EUR 19.99), which compiles Road Rash, Desert Strike and Jungle Strike together.

There's also Super Pocket Tennis (GBP 7.99 / EUR 9.99), Disney's Action Game Featuring Hercules (GBP 3.99 / EUR 4.99) and The Little Mermaid II (GBP 3.99 / EUR 4.99) for the handheld.

Meanwhile, the Guitar Hero World Tour library beefs up with the Aussie Track Pack (GBP 4.39 / EUR 5.49). This boasts "Tomorrow" by Silverchair, "Dimension" by Wolfmother and "Outtathaway" by The Vines.

Rock Band, meanwhile, gets a Steve Miller Band pack for GBP 2.49. Inside are songs "Space Cowboy", "Take the Money and Run" and "The Joker".

There's a selection of individual songs on offer for GBP 0.99, too. These are "Feed the Tree" by Belly, "I Stand Alone" by Godsmack, "Wind Me Up" by Ghost Hounds, "War Zone" by Rob Zombie and "Typical" by Mute Math. Never heard of them.

All that plus new trailers for Mafia II, God of War II and Uncharted II to keep your weekend busy.
