It's a bumper day on the PlayStation Store for once, with plenty of downloadable content, a couple of demos and even a full game.

Valkyria Chronicles (581MB) and Hail to the Chimp (374MB) are the two demos. The former, previewed last weekend, is a turn-based strategy title from SEGA, while the latter is a reportedly rather drab satirical party game based around jungle elections. Find out.

The full game is called Linger in Shadows and costs GBP 1.99. From what we understand though, it's actually a product of the demoscene, albeit with a bit of interaction. Should be interesting.

In terms of downloadable content, whips have been flying at Capcom, with Mega Man 9's Endless Attack mode (GBP 1.99) and Proto Man pack (GBP 1.49) arriving on cue, while the rather rubbish Rocketmen gets the It Came From Uranus expansion (GBP 1.99) Xbox Live has had for months.

Elsewhere, Everybody's Golf: World Tour gets Costume Pack A (GBP 3.19), which allows you to re-outfit five of your golfers, and there's also a pair of Super Stardust HD downloads - Complete (GBP 6.49) and Double Pack (GBP 4.49), which sound like the full game with all add-ons and then all the add-ons, but the descriptions are ambiguous. Sorry.

Finally, there's a Comedy Movies quiz pack (GBP 3.49), presumably for Buzz! Quiz TV, and a pair of NBA Live 09 downloads - the Oklahoma City Pack, which is free, and the NBA Live 365 game pack for GBP 6.99, which will allow you to download daily updates for the Dynamic DNA season mode.

Not content with that, there are trailers for WipEout HD (making of), Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Mirror's Edge (2D story trailer), Need for Speed Undercover, Metal Gear Solid 4 (story trailer) and one called Puzzle and Power Packs, which showcases the upcoming PlayStation Network Collection bundles for PSP.
