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

It seems PSN is still waking up after the Christmas and New Year holiday, with not a great deal being on offer this week. The biggest release is the demo for EA's Lord of the Rings: Conquest, which gives you a taste of the multiplayer focussed action game ahead of its January 16 release date. This is joined by new content for Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm and the Faction Elite pack for EndWar.

As usual there's a selection of new tracks for Rock Band and Guitar Hero World Tour, and trailers for LotR: Conquest, Brain Challenge and Tekken 6.

To be honest I feel as though a monthly summary would probably be better than a weekly one - at least, most weeks it doesn't seem as though there is enough new content to justify a weekly article.

Looking forward to trying the Skate 2 demo on PSN this week though - I don't usually like any sort of sports games (bar tennis), but I enjoyed Skate.

I don't mind that there weren't too many releases this week. LOTR: Conquest demo has kept me going! Can't help wishing that Enduro Racer was the arcade version or even the C64 version which was a much better 3D affair.
