It's been a long time since we've had a disappointing PlayStation Store network update. Thankfully, today's doesn't break the trend. This week gamers are treated to a classic adventure as a prince, a less conventional adventure with Gabe and Tycho, a couple of demos, one massive mound of musical madness and more (... and my awesome alliteration).
Check out the full North American update below.

Decent update. Still waiting for more epic demos :P
- 2:07pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
i agree decent update, but we need more demos
- 2:12pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
i am wonder where the resident evil update
- 2:27pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
"Valkyria Chronicles Demo" I was really expecting for this. Really really nice!!!
- 2:35pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
lame im waiting for tomb raider demo,we need more demos badly
- 2:38pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
I highly doubt there will be any "epic demos" in concerns to LBP or Resistance 2.
- 2:39pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
So the difference between a good update and a bad up date is "demos vs no demos", is that it? Question. Are demos popular because it's a way to game for free? Do you guys play the demo over and over while you save cash for a full game? Is that how it goes? Like a free rental for 1 level (or less) of play? Beacuse I've seen great updates (I think they're great if there just A LOT of new stuff...quantity) without demos, and people on here whine about how it's a "waste of time".

I dont really care about PSN updates anymore they server no purpose to me other than some games i want to try out.

@#7 To me a great update is one that offers a selection of demos, games, add on content, videos, themes and wall papers. I think today's update is a very good one.

Pretty much. Let's go through the list here. I already have Valkyria demo, from Qore. No, I'm not giving Lego Batman a try, sorry. I'm not wasting my money on Penny Arcade or Prince of Persia, there are much, much better things to use my money on. Going through the list of downloadable content, everyone single one of those things are poor add ons for poor games, except for maybe yoda for Soul Calibur. Even though I have Rock Band, all those songs for Guitar Hero and Rock Band are just a waste of money, unless there's one song you really, really want. Which usually isn't the case. And trust me, I know because I've bought some before, It's pretty much a one time play through. Going through the downloadable videos, there's no games there that are interesting enough to even blow time on the download, except maybe Socom, and so that makes 2 downloads for me now? (Even though I won't be downloading Socom video because it's probably already uploaded online to 10 times faster servers.)
PS3 themes? I'll take that Wipeout theme.
Overall? An update that does not interest me. I wouldn't even be turning on my PS3 this entire week if it weren't for the godly resistance 2 beta. (&*^&^ing religious twits and the LBP delay.

Woo, LEGO Batman demo! And good to see that they finally decided to bring Prince of Persia to the PS3- I bought it on XBL when it came out, great game. And I may or may not pick up the Penny Arcade game- I've heard good things and I enjoyed the demo on XBL, but I think I'll save my money for the flux of games coming next week.

@ 7 .... Don't be a d0uche' bag.. A Demo is a way to try the game before you buy it. RETARD!!!! How long have u been a gamer 2 weeks. Or is it that mommy and daddy still buy your games for you! PUTZ!!!
- 4:22pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
$5.00 for Yoda?! Hahahaha! You've got to be kidding me. No way in he11 I'm buying that.

People tend to think exactly like that; you hit it on the head. Personally, I love demos. I'm waiting for a demo of one of the games on PSU's Top 20 Games of Fall feature. Valkyria is good, but most people don't appreciate jrpg's.

- 7:24pm EDT - October 23rd, 2008
