PSN update has new special offers

Plus: Comics! ModNations beta! Songs!

This week's PSN Store brings a whole new batch of special offers for PS3 and PSP downloadable games.

LocoRoco and Super Stardust Portable are cheapened on PSP, while Digger HD - among others - sheds pounds on PS3.

There's the ModNations Racers beta client to download, but only for the first 100,000 people (for whom testing starts today), and the usual slew of Rock Band and Guitar Hero songs.

This week's PSP Minis offering is a retro-styled tower defence game called, practically, Vector TD. - and you can find out more about it (with pictures) on the European PlayStation blog.

Or you can buy comics like a child on your PSP. New additions include Wallace and Gromit, X-Men, Blade, The Avengers and more.
