GTA: Chinatown Wars on PSN today

Buy now to avoid rush hour.

The excellent Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is this week's headline attraction on the European PlayStation Store.

Our praise-laden review should convince you that £29.99 is an asking price worth parting with, unless you want the UMD, which is inevitably cheaper.

Elsewhere, you might like to try demos of NBA 2K10 or Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron (PSP). Plus, there's new content for Midnight Club: Los Angeles and Cross Edge.

There's only one extra PSP Minis game, Red Bull X Fighters, today - and it costs four quid.

Of the discounts, Riff: Everyday Shooter is most alluring, at £3.99/€4.99.

Over to music watch, and Queen invade Rock Band while some rockers I've never heard of appear for Guitar Hero.
