After you’ve updated your PS3 with the new 2.00 firmware, you’re in for a real treat with tonight’s PlayStation Store update. The demo for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has finally arrived, and it doesn’t disappoint one bit. It’s a doozie of a download at 1.2 GB, but it’s well worth the wait. The cover system, gunplay and melee combat are fantastic, the character animations are stunning and the environmental detail and level designs are unbelievable. If the demo is this good, I can’t wait to see how the full game comes together!

Don’t think the Uncharted demo is the only worthwhile piece of new content tonight though. A demo for College Hoops 2K8 is now available, along with three add-on packs: the MotorStorm Devil’s Weekend Add-On ($5.99) and the way overpriced Guitar Hero III Foo Fighters and Velvet Revolver song packs both running $6.25 for three songs each. Game trailers are in abundance too, including videos for MotorStorm Devil’s Weekend, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Devil May Cry 4, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 and Burnout Paradise, complimented by movie/blu-ray trailers for One Missed Call, Sweeney Todd and Hostel Part II. And last but not least, a set of five Call of Duty 4 wallpapers and three free XMB themes are available to accompany the new theme functionality added in firmware 2.00.
