MGS: Peace Walker demo on PSN

Plus: GT5 and Army of Two 2 demos.

There's plenty of new games you can play on the PlayStation Network today without spending a penny.

This week's Store refresher brings multiple big-name demos to the table: Gran Turismo 5, Army of Two: The 40th Day and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Relentless also steams head first into episodic PSN content with Blue Toad Murder Files Episodes 1 and 2. And they're bundled together for a tenner, which is a small price to pay for family cohesiveness over Christmas. Our BTMF review explains in detail.

PS3 owners shouldn't overlook the release of superb platform game Braid either, even though the transition from Xbox 360 has taken over a year.

There's the Rubber Soul album offered for The Beatles: Rock Band, too, although regular Rock Band owners must settle for a Greed Day pack instead.
