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


This week's PS Store update is pretty decent with two game demos and a nice selection of DLC to choose from, but what really lets it down is its discrepancy compared to the North American store refresh. On the US store you can get hold of Fatal Inertia EX and download the impressive sounding Metal Gear Solid Database - a real must for all fans.

It's also worth noting that while the two demos are well worth a look, they've arrived later than their Xbox 360 counterparts. Golfers can purchase a new course for Hot Shots Golf and those that haven't already picked up the two Warhawk add-ons can now do so in a new Combo Pack.

Xbox 360 - Marketplace


A week without a new game demo (we're not including XBLA) is a rare thing indeed for Xbox LIVE Marketplace, so this week's lack a free gaming is a disappointment. If you've got MS Points to spare then you've got a selection of XBLA titles and an Xbox Original to choose from - Elements of Destruction is probably the best bet, but we'd advise giving the demo a try first.

You've also got the Coldplay Track Pack for Guitar Hero III, a new Map Pack for Bungie's Marathon: Durandal and a bunch of new tracks for Rock Band.


Elements Of Destruction: 800 MS Points

Sea Life Safari: 800 MS Points

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



There are no new Virtual Console titles this week, but Nintendo has put out two new WiiWare games. First up is Block Breaker Deluxe from Gameloft. It's a block breaking game which is based on a casual game title that has sold over eight million copies. It's decent, simple fun and probably just about worth its price tag.

The second new release is Cocoto Fishing Master, a bizarre blend of fishing simulation, mini-games and RPG. It's got cel-shaded visuals and looks passable, but don't expect much for you 700 Wii Points.


Block Breaker Deluxe: 800 Wii Points

Cocoto Fishing Master: 700 Wii Points

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

Xbox LIVE Marketplace

Until the Euro PS Store begins to get updated with the same content as the US Store it's going to continually find itself losing out to the Xbox 360. To be fair neither store has any particularly great new content this week, but because of the variety of new games on offer (two of which can also be demoed) it's the Xbox 360 that comes out on top. WiiWare's Block Breaker Deluxe is probably the best new game release available on any of the three systems, but it's not enough to warrant victory.
