PlayStation Store Update: VIII + 5 + 40

So much to see and do this week on the North American version of the PlayStation Store. But what to do first? Download the Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial demo? Final Fantasy VIII? Rubber Soul? Argh!

I suppose it's up to you to decide whether the Army of Two: The 40th Day demo takes precedent over downloading Pavement's "Cut Your Hair," but now PlayStation 3 owners can do both. The good news for PSP owners is that a ton of UMDs have made the jump to digital download, including a trio of Metal Gear Solid titles.

Even better are new deals on games like GTA: Chinatown Wars and Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This? All of these things can be pondered while scanning the list below.

    What is with the horrible pricing for Aus?

      sadly no

        I think we would all like to know when it's going to be though. That's so miserable Sony... For shame.
