PSN update: Killzone 2 demo tops bill

Plus: Burnout Paradise, DLC, wallpapers.

A bundle of new stuff has appeared in the PlayStation Store, including a playable Killzone 2 demo.

It's likely to be in high demand, but we're downloading it right now and there don't appear to be any issues. Unless you live in Germany, of course, where the demo will not be released. Sorry, Germans.

Also out now is the Burnout Paradise Ultimate Bundle, priced at GBP 29.99 / EUR 34.99. For that you get the full (and excellent) game, all the free updates and the Party Pack. This is a new add-on which introduces a pass-the-pad mode for up to eight players, new challenges, and enhancements for the modes, visuals and vehicle dynamics. The Party Pack is available separately for GBP 7.99 / EUR 9.99.

New PSN games out this week include Lumines Supernova, coming in at GBP 8.99 / EUR 10.99. Alternatively there's puzzler Cuboid (GBP 7.99 / EUR 9.99) - you can probably guess the central theme, but there's always the video if you're thick. Meanwhile, EA is offering 3 on 3 NHL Arcade for GBP 6.39 / EUR 7.99. It's probably about some kind of American sport.

As for downloadable add-ons - LittleBigPlanet fans can get the Valentine's Day level kit, topically, for GBP 2.39 / EUR 2.99. Then there's a new Everybody's Golf World Tour course, Golfasauraus Rex B.C.C., priced at GBP 3.19 / EUR 3.99. Or how about Naruto: Ultimate Nina Storm Pack 6, which is free. Here's hoping it marks a return to the heady heights of 1, 2 and 3 following a distinctly lacklustre 4 and the tangential misfire that was 5.

This week's new Guitar Hero World Tour tracks are Black Betty by Ram Jam, Commotion by Creedence Clearwater Revival and Gimme All Your Lovin' from ZZ Top. Each one costs GBP 1.59 / EUR 1.99.

For Rock Band there's Break My Heart and Don't Tell Me at GBP 0.59 / EUR 0.79. In the GBP 0.99 / EUR 1.49 category we have Cowboy Song (Live), Hit Me with your Best Shot, Jailbreak, Precious and - YES - The Boys Are Back in Town (Live). There's also the first Thin Lizzy Pack, priced at GBP 2.49 / EUR 3.99.

A PSN update just wouldn't be a PSN update with out some free wallpapers, and this week they feature Lord of the Rings and Mirror's Edge themes. This trailers are for Pain and Cuboid.

So what about the PSP? Well, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare 2 is now available to download for the handheld, priced at GBP 15.99 / EUR 19.99. Perhaps you'd prefer mini-game compilation Bliss Island, which comes in at GBP 7.99 / EUR 9.99. Perhaps not.

That's it for now - tune in next week for more words about the new things on the PlayStation Store and how much they cost.
