The update starts with some game demos for Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds and Top Spin 3. Both boring sports to watch but fun to play, right? There’s also a new character for PAIN, a World of Warcraft song for Guitar Hero III, and the full “Doolittle” album from the Pixies and 3 songs from Weezer for Rock Band. There are also a whole bunch of game videos, a few blu-ray trailers and two PS3 themes.
For the PSP, you can buy Medievil Resurrection for $16.99, download a Medievil Resurrection interview trailer, and a Medievil wallpaper. Not a whole lot, but still good, since Medievil is a pretty fun game. You can visit the Playstation Blog for more information.

The update this week is actually pretty good. You can download Fatal Inertia EX for $30, there’s add-on content for Hot Shots Golf, Metal Gear Solid 4, The Incredible Hulk, Guitar Hero III, and Rock Band.
Then, there are four demos, which should keep you busy this weekend. First off, you have the chance to play Fatal Inertia EX before you decide to buy it. Then there’s demos for NCAA Football 09, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3, and Hail to the Chimp.

This update is just a minor update that’s meant to improve system stability while playing select Playstation format titles. That’s about it. So boot up the PS3 and update.

The latest tracks for Rock Band are available for download. You can pick up “Rock and Roll Dream” by Crooked X, “Critical Acclaim” and “Afterlife” by Avenged Sevenfold, and “Hammerhead” from The Offspring. I really like that new Offspring song. You can pick them up on the Xbox 360 for 160 points each except for the Crooked X song which is only 80 points. You can find ‘em on the PS3 on Thursday.

The new software update for the PSP should be out anytime now, if it isn’t already. You’ll just have to check. This update adds a few new features, the first of which being Google search functionality directly in the XMB. That’s simple. The other feature gives you the ability to change viewing speed during playback of videos on you Memory Stick PRO Duo. Not much, but not bad.

This week brings two more WiiWare titles and one Virtual Console title. First off, for WiiWare you get Protothea from Ubisoft which is a scrolling shooter in which your enemy is an asteroid. The second WiiWare game is Toki Tori from Two Tribes, which is actually a reincarnated version of the game from the Game Boy Color. This one’s a puzzler/platformer.
Now on to the classic on the Virtual Console. You get the side scroller, Ninja Combat from the NEOGEO system. You play as a Ninja, obviously, one named Joe and one name Hayabusa, who must fight their way to the Ninja Tower. This one’s two player too, so grab a buddy. Here’s the full press release from Nintendo.
Two WiiWare Games and One Virtual Console Game Added to Wii Shop Channel
