PlayStation Store Update – 9/27/07

PlayStation Store update time has rolled around this fine Thursday evening, and with it comes a somewhat subdued lineup of downloadable goods compared to recent weeks. But have no fear fellow PS3 owners, there’s still plenty of content to enjoy nonetheless. There are only two demos to check out this week, including Clive Barker’s Jericho (821 MB) and NBA 2K8 (287 MB). Jericho is one of those mysterious titles that many are still questioning whether it’s going to live up to its billing and be really damn cool or fall flat and just sort of turn into a run-of-the-mill shooter — now we can get a taste and see how it’s coming along before it ships late next month. And with demos already available for Sony’s NBA 08 and EA’s NBA Live 08, it’s only fitting that 2K Sports provided sports gamers a peek at their ’08 NBA offering before all three b-ball titles tip-off next week.

In addition to the demos, two new game add-ons have been released. For $0.99 you can add a new ride to your MotorStorm garage — the Castro Capitano racing truck — and for $2.99 you can add five more survival modes to Ninja Gaiden Sigma with the new Speed Master add-on pack. Finally comes the video content, which includes an overview video for The Eye of Judgment, an Upside tutorial video for NBA 08, a trailer for Guitar Hero III and movie trailers for Iron Man and We Own the Night.

Not a whole lot to go crazy over overall, but I’ve been dying to try me some Jericho so I’m happy to have that demo alone. This is probably just the calm before the storm too. With TGS just wrapping up I bet there’s a ton of video content in the pipeline from the show (MGS4 and MGO trailers, for instance) and demos like Ratchet & Clank Future confirmed to be on the way in the next couple of weeks.
