Rumored PLAYSTATION Store New Content (US) for June 19, 2008

June 18, 2008 Written by StalkingSilence

Hey guys!  Just checking in to let you know what’s coming to the PLAYSTATION Store this week.  If you thought it’d be a slow couple of weeks leading up the E3, you are clearly mistaken.  I’m here to let you know what we’ll most likely see this week on the PSN.  I will keep this post updated (like I did last week and the week before) as new information pours in.

Tired of DLC for Rock Band and Guitar Hero III?  Too bad, you’re getting more of that for SURE.  But there’s so much other stuff, too!  I think maybe we’ll get that “surprise” from Konami that some expected last week.  I don’t think it was just a theme they were telling people about.  We could get up to 4 demos!  A full PS3 game (Fatal Interia EX).  Rumored that we’ll get some Hot Shots Golf DLC and PAIN DLC!  Maybe even a full PSP game as well (UMD download).  Here’s the full list from my thread on the forums:

  • Fatal Inertia EX [Demo] & Full Game | Confirmed
      • Supposed to be released in late May 2008 on PSN
