The Playstation Store update was unexplainably absent in it’s usual Thursday night timeslot on the PSN, subsequently arriving a day later.  Nonetheless, this week’s update is packed with content starting with demos for Wet, Dirt 2, NHL 10, and for the single player expansion DLC for F.E.A.R. 2.  Speaking of DLC,  we see an overdue new mission pack for Force Unleashed, new characters and maps for Transformers 2 and Crash Commando, and the champions pack for Fight Night Round 4 (that includes the now playable Klitschko brothers).  Full playable content is present with a new PSN title in the new side-scroller Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao and PSone classics Tomb Raider 2, Sim City 2000, and Coolboarders 2.  Finally, videos are also abundant and fresh from Gamescon with new trailers for Sony exclusives Heavy Rain, the new Ratchet and Clank, Modnation Racers, MAG and White Knight Chronicles along with a new edition of Pulse.

As for Playstation Home, the new Killzone 2 space entitled Visari Throne Room is up and be sure to swing by the mall for streaming video of The Soup’s best clips of 09 episode.

…and yes the PSN is playing a big part in Batman:Arkham Asylum’s launch on the PS3.  Exclusive to the PS3 version, owners can now download the Joker add-on to play the character in the game’s challenge room mode .  Also, the game disc will also grant owners access to an exclusive Batcave Home Space making this version of the game the one to get.
