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. Releases outside of the UK could vary.
PlayStation 3 - PSN
It's been a very busy week for Sony, with two content updates - the first as part of PlayStation Day - ensuring gamers have plenty of new content to enjoy on the PlayStation Store.
It's clearly the demos that have the most appeal, with GRID and Haze well worth a download. SEGA's Condemned 2 demo also finally makes an appearance on the Euro store.
There's also new game content for GH3, Army of Two and High Velocity Bowling, plus new release PSN titles, Blast Factor Advanced, High Velocity Bowling and Street Skater.
The store has also been bombarded with trailers and video footage from the aforementioned PlayStation Day, most of which is worth a look.

Head to page 2 for a look at this week's Xbox 360 Marketplace releases.
Xbox 360 - Marketplace
The Xbox LIVE Marketplace update is slightly lacking this week, with only the Race Driver: GRID demo and XBLA title Wits & Wagers to get excited about. If you find yourself loving Wits & Wagers - quite unlikely - then you might also want to splash some MS Points on a Wits & Wagers Picture Pack.
Wits & Wagers: 800 MS Points
Race Driver: GRID: Free
CP3TV Ep 13: Inside a Jordan Brand Commercial: Free
Themes and Pictures
Wits & Wagers - Picture Pack 1: 100 MS Points
Wits & Wagers - Picture Pack 2: 100 MS Points
Wits & Wagers - Picture Pack 3: 100 MS Points
Head to page 3 for a look at this week's Wii Virtual Console releases.
Wii Virtual Console
The second week of the Hanabi Festival sees the release of four new titles previously unavailable in Europe. The selection includes the SEGA Mega Drive puzzle game Puyo Puyo 2, the Turbografx pool game Break In, quirky side-scrolling shmup Cho Aniki and the NEO GEO classic Metal Slug. As with last week's new releases, the titles from the Hanabi Festival are priced higher than standard releases which might deter potential buyers. Metal Slug is certainly well worth owning, but the low-priced Metal Slug Anthology, which includes all the games in the series, might be the better option.
Virtual Console releases
Puyo Puyo 2: 900 Wii Points
Break In: 700 Wii Points
Cho Aniki: 900 Wii Points
Metal Slug: 900 Wii Points
And the winner of this week's DLC Royal Rumble is...
PS3 - PlayStation Store
With its strongest week for quite some time, the PlayStation Store is the easy winner. Three game demos, three PSN titles and a selection of worthwhile videos should provide hours of entertainment for PS3 gamers. The same can't be said for the Xbox 360. While the four new titles for the Virtual Console are new to the UK, their appeal to UK gamers is likely to be highly limited.
