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


Two new playable demos provide the bulk of new content this week, with Monster Madness likely to be of most interest given that the game won't be in stores until September.

The Guitar Hero 3 Isle of Wight Track Pack features three songs: Problems [live at Brixton] by The Sex Pistols, Shoot the Runner by Kasabian, & I Predict a Riot by Kaiser Chiefs.

There's not really much else to get excited about on PSN this week.

Head to page 2 for a look at this week's Xbox 360 Marketplace releases.

Xbox 360 - Marketplace


Commando 3 is perhaps the most interesting new release on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, although not because the game is very good. Part with 800 MS Points for Capcom's action game and you'll be granted access to the upcoming Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix beta which is set to begin on June 25.

Elsewhere you've got demos of Dark Sector - certainly worth a go - and, as with PS3, a sample of Activision's Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. If you've got a PS3 and Xbox 360 why not give both versions a try to decide for yourself which is best.

There's also a bunch of new tracks for Guitar Hero III and Rock Band, a heap of new videos and a selection of Themes and Pictures.

Head to page 3 for a look at this week's Wii Virtual Console releases.



There's nothing new for WiiWare this week, but Nintendo has compensated with the release of five Virtual Console titles.

First up is the SEGA Master System classic platformer, Alex Kidd in Miracle World. For many this will be affectionately remembered as the title which came built into their console.

Joining Alex Kidd are two more from the C64 vault: Nebulus, a platform game in which players take control of a green creature called Pogo who is on a mission to destroy eight towers; and Last Ninja 2, the action packed sequel to the most successful C64 game ever released.

Rounding off this week's new releases are the NeoGeo titles Fatal Fury 2 and Ninja Combat. Fatal Fury 2 sees players once again battling for the coveted championship title and introduces a new health system which offers a last resort desperation technique once health has fallen bellow a certain threshold. The game was later improved upon with the release of Fatal Fury Special so it might be worth holding off to see if this makes it to the Virtual Console.

Ninja Combat is a high octane, side-scrolling action title in which players take on the role of a deadly ninja in the near future. Your mission is to assault the Ninja Tower, taking down the evil clan of rival ninjas known as Kage Ichizoku. There's also a two-player mode available, but you're best leaving this alone unless you have a particular nostalgic attraction to it.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World: 500 Wii Points

Last Ninja 2: 500 Wii Points

Fatal Fury 2: 900 Wii Points

Ninja Combat: 900 Wii Points

And the winner of this week's DLC Royal Rumble is...

Xbox LIVE Marketplace

The Wii might have five new games to choose from, but the lack of a WiiWare update is disappointing. The PS3 disappoints yet again and it leaves the Xbox 360 to claim another win. The two demos will provide some short-lived entertainment, there are loads of new videos to check out and two new XBLA titles to try - remember that all XBLA releases are available in demo form.

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
