The console war is fought everywhere these days, but the internet seems to be where people are most vocal. It also serves to give each console its own set of downloadable content, fuelling the war even more. Each week we'll give you a run-down of what's available to download on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii, and declare a winner.

Note: This round-up is based on UK releases to each console's online service and does not include premium video content. Releases outside of the UK could vary.

PlayStation 3 - PSN

Headlining the PSN this week is the rather gorgeous Flower, a game which we reckon is well worth its measly £6.29 price tag. It might not be for everyone, but if you have a love of nice visuals and are part of the 'games are art' brigade don't let this pass you by. Also on the playable front is a second demo for PS3 exclusive racer MotorStorm Pacific Rift, some more LittleBigPlanet content and a demo for Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars.

On top of that lot there's a selection of new tracks for Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band, trailers for Flower and Tekken 6, and a Hasselhoff theme for PAIN. David Hasselhoff on your PS3 XMB - what more do you want?

The Wii has won in the past before, yes. But only because some great WiiWare titles came out and XBLA/PSN had nothing else to offer.

Hah. You'll never please everyone with this article!

Oh, you forgot to mention that the FULL GAME of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars was out last week on PSN too, not just the demo.

May I suggest that you stop this article as it is pretty meaningless. I know you never get the Wii schedule for Virtual Arcade, add-ons, movies and the like but, by missing all of that out, the Wii will always lose. As an XBOX gamer, I'd have to argue with the end result this week but I do get the feeling that the little ol' Wii (a console I also have and enjoy) never gets fully covered in this.

Bottom line: if you can't get all of the facts regarding releases, don't include the console.
