PlayStation Network Update: flOw on the go edition

Last week’s PlayStation Network Update left a lot to be desired. I blame the flu. This week is much better for the PSP, but the PS3 is still flapping in the wind. I think they’re saving everything up for in-game XMB week… whenever that is.

The PlayStation Portable sees the release of the flOw port ($7.99). The not-really-a-game looks great on the PSP, and you’ll find that it eats just as many zoned-out hours of your life as the PS3 version did. The PSP also gets the monkey minigame madness of Ape Escape: On the Loose ($14.99).

The PS3 only has one downloadable game this week: Rocketmen: Axis of Evil ($9.99). This 124MB title, based on WizKids tabletop game, looks pretty slick. There’s also a demo if you’d like to try before you buy.

As always, the week’s add-on game content comes from Guitar Hero III and Rock Band. Guitar Hero gets the Modern Metal Pack ($6.25) which includes songs from Avenged Sevenfold, Thrice, and Deftones. Rock Band rocks a Grateful Dead Pack ($9.99).

As for other goodies, there’s a Lost Planet PS3 theme, a Condemned 2: Bloodshot wallpaper, a game video of NBA Ballers: The Chosen One, and a couple of movie trailers.

This is the calm before the storm, right? Sony?
