175w ago - Today Ross McGrath of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN update, which comes in to land with a cargo hold full of goodies.
To quote: We'll start with the portable content because along with a PSP version of the recently released Groovin' Blocks, we've got a much requested title - Powered by Namco... it's Ridge Racer! A true classic and still one of the best driving experiences on PSP.
Remember last time you saw me I teased you about one of my favourite PSOne Classics coming to the store? Well brush off your fighting gloves and prepare to beat the heck out of a grown man wearing spandex trousers and a jaguar mask because it's here, it's Tekken 2 and, while it's not quite as fast-paced as more modern fighters, it's still brilliant.
For your TV's best friend we've got a good selection as well - Gundemonium Collection brings the 'bullet hell' genre screaming onto the PSN with three games in one: Gundemonium Recollection; GundeadliGne and Hitogata Happa.
If you feel like punishing your trigger fingers and generally view blinking as a waste of time, these are the games for you. Not convinced you need all three games? Well okay, we'll let you buy them separately too but don't say we never do anything for you.

An old friend returns (for the first time on PlayStation since 1995); Earthworm Jim HD is a remake of the old classic - which I may add was hard as nails, I never actually completed it - and features all the old favourite characters and levels, but now comes with added HD shininess, additional levels and a multiplayer mode.
I for one am I very excited, and will be doing my best to actually complete it this time!
We have two additions to the PSone roster on the store; Pong and Rayman 2: The Great Escape. I know it's been quite a wait to get Rayman 2 onto the store, and we're very pleased to say that it's now available, so grab your copy and help Rayman defend his world against the pirate invasion!
As for Pong, you know what to expect and it needs no further explanation really, other than this version (originally released in 1999) comes with 3D graphics and power-ups.
That's not all for PS3 though, we have the Madden NFL 11 demo for instance as well as much more; I refer you to the full list below for the full details.
As for your PSP needs this week there are two Harry Potter games available, a demo for Worms: Battle Islands, and...

If you aren't a Plus subscriber then today's your first chance to get hold of the new Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days demo featuring a single player level casting you as everyone's favourite balding psychopath, Lynch, and the option to try out the 'Fragile Alliance' multiplayer mode.
The anthropomorphic animal detectives, Sam and Max, return in the fourth episode of The Devil's Playhouse: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls - remember you can still pick up the entitlement to the whole season from the Store and grab the previously released episodes too.
The second set of marvellous Marvel outfits fly, ride and 'thwip' their way into LittleBigPlanet and if you're still clamouring for more modifications and doo-dads for your ModNation Racers karts, the Sheriff Sirloin mod makes his debut. Can a cow drive a car without opposable thumbs? Apparently it can - hooves are no barrier to power sliding.
All you Pinball Wizards will be pleased to know that the guys from Zen Studios have added a new table to Zen Pinball. This one is completely out of this world. No really, it's set on Mars. Add to that the usual selection of Guitar Hero and Rock Band offerings, a...

The recent monkey loving continues with the release of Monkey Island 2, in all its shiny new glory.
This new edition has a new lick of paint, but there is also a wealth of other goodies including the ability to toggle between the new version and the original version (to see just how shiny and lovely the new version actually is) and a fully fledged developer commentary featuring the original creators Tim Schafer, Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman reminiscing on the making of the game amongst other things.
For fans of the classic series this is a great opportunity to rekindle your love, and for anybody who hasn't played this classic game yet - firstly, what's wrong with you? - secondly, get it now.
There's something called a Resurgence pack for a title you may know called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, I believe it's some kind of shooty game where you hurt people and then cackle manically down your headset, before giving them a teabag to rub in the humiliation. Ah, how I love a good FPS multiplayer session
There's more additional content goodness in the form of Leliana's Song for Dragon Age:...
