To help better outline some of the stuff that will hit the PlayStation Network and the PS Store for all you PS3 owners out there, we've decided to offer short 'n sweet summaries of all the content you'll see once the US store is updated. In the future, we'll try to expand it out to include other regions, but for now, here's what you'll see this week:


[Games]
High Stakes on the Vegas Strip: Poker Edition[game] -- Sony Online Entertainment finally fills the much-needed online poker game with High Stakes. Five different poker games in limit or no-limit variants, online and offline modes and character customization are all here.
Price: $9.99

[game=1672]PixelJunk Racers
-- Designed from the ground up for HDTVs and short play sessions PixelJunk is the brainchild of developers Q Games (not to confused with Q Entertainment, who made the Lumines games), and features 32 mini-game style challenges across 10 tracks, all with online leaderboards.
Price: $6.99

[Demos]
FIFA 08

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

NHL 08

PixelJunk Racers -- That $7 price tag a little too high just jump in on an impulse buy? Fine, take a gander at a couple of the different challenge types and tracks with this short little demo. It should offer a taste of what to expect from the little slot-car racer (that and our review, of course).

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground -- The Birdman may have had a sloppy debut on the PlayStation 3 (okay, it was pretty bad), but his sophomore effort looks much improved (as you can tell from our preview). But don't take our word for it, experience the joy and/or pain for yourself.

Lair "Mastering the Beast" Video -- Maybe the folks at Factor 5 and Sony can teach you how the control the dragons better than the in-game help and lots of practice can, but we're not bettin' on it.

[Game Trailers]
Everyday Shooter -- Build by just one man, see just how cool this little music-driven indie shooter and all its various influences is coming along.

Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights -- THQ's mix of arcade and sim racing is making a return, and this time it's going next-gen. Take a peek at just how far the series has come in its leap from the PS2 with this new trailer.

Soulcalibur IV -- Ivy. Huge boobs. Need we say more? No, no we needn't.

Warhawk - Launch Trailer -- The game is officially out, folks (though it's not a flawless launch by any stretch), and to celebrate, Sony and Incognito have a fancy new peek at the game for you.

Feel the Noise

[Wallpapers]
Folklore, High Stakes on the Vegas Strip: Poker Edition and 2 from PixelJunk Racers.

[Music]
Lair - "Battle for Asylia" -- A dump of the music from the first level (it's good stuff).
