Rumored New PLAYSTATION® Store (US) Content for 8/14/08 [Update]

Written by stalkingsilence Weekly PS Store Rumored Content Weekly PS Store Rumored Content

This week we should be seeing the (delayed) demos for 1942: Joint Strike and EA Sports’ Tiger Woods 09; maybe some Civilization Revolution content as well. But the most exciting new content has to be from Capcom. Not only do we get the PS3/PSP version of the PSone classic Street Fighter Alpha, we also get the demo and full game of Bionic Commando: Rearmed. Oh and of course it wouldn’t be a Thursday on the PSN without Rock Band DLC.  [Update: Looks like there may be a demo for NHL 2K9 as well.]

Other content may be on its 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:
