288w ago - Due to Sony's holiday break last week, we didn't get any Rock Band DLC. As a result, everything has been pushed back a week.

Hopefully Harmonix/Sony will adjust this soon - we'd hate to think it will become standard practice for PS3 owners to get their DLC a week later than everyone else.

• "Space Truckin'" - Deep Purple
• "Funk #49" - James Gang
• "Hymn 43" - Jethro Tull
• "Take Back the City" - Snow Patrol

Roy Orbison Pack

• "Claudette"
• "In Dreams"
• "Mean Woman Blues"
• "Oh, Pretty Woman"
• "Ooby Dooby"
• "You Got It"

Each song will be priced individually at $1.99 while the Roy Orbison Pack will cost $9.99. Look for the Roy Orbison tracks next week on Thursday, January 15th while the other songs will debut this Thursday on January 8th.

290w ago - Merry Christmas, Japan! While the Western world grows fat on its own laziness (not to mention a massive amount of Christmas food) Japanese game stores remain open to sell five new great PS3 games.

What's that strange smell, you ask? That's our pure, unadulterated jealousy. We really want to play White Knight Chronicles. Here's the release list:

US Games

• No new releases

EU Games

• No new releases

Asian Games

• Alone In The Dark
• Bioshock
• Far Cry 2
• Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution
• White Knight Chronicles

In case you're wondering, your PS3 is region free. So, yes, you can import White Knight Chronicles if you so wish. We're not sure if it's the sort of game that will get downloadable content, but if it does you'll have to get it from the Japanese PSN Store.
