Rumored New PLAYSTATION® Store (US) Content for 8/07/08 [Update]

Written by stalkingsilence Weekly PS Store Rumored Content

Hey everybody, time for the weekly rumored new content post.  Last week, we did EXTREMELY well and were very close with our rumored content post, over a day before the official store post went live.  PixelJunk Eden made last week awesome just by itself, but this week we have a little more variety in the content.

This week we should be seeing a new episode of Qore (subscribers will get R2 beta invite).  We’ll have at least one demo for 1942: Joint Strike and possibly another for EA Sports’ Tiger Woods 09.  Speaking of EA, they may also be bringing you some NASCAR 09 DLC this week.  This should nicely compliment the new DLC for Battlefield: Bad Company (woo hoo Conquest mode!) along with the DLC for your favorite music games as both Rock Band and Guitar Hero III get some new content this week.  To top it all off, we are introduced to the Talkman Travel interactive travel guide for PSP.

Other content may be on it’s way as well but we wanted to get the news to you first!  Check out the full release list below adapted from my thread at the forums:
