This week's North American PlayStation Store update is live, an update that might convince you to dust off that copy of Red Dead Redemption or seriously consider investing in a BloodRayne video game. No, seriously!

WayForward's BloodRayne: Betrayal looks like the most promising thing to come from the BloodRayne IP in a long time, perhaps forever, if you're me. Joining the side-scrolling Betrayal is one Rugby 2011 and Skydrift, a game intriguingly pitched to me as a blend of Bizarre Creations' Blur and Rare's Diddy Kong Racing—because it has planes, you see.


PlayStation 3 owners have a handful of demos to consider, including Supremacy MMA and the God of War Origins sampler, now for everyone.

Finally, maybe grab that Red Dead Redemption "Myths And Mavericks" add-on. It's free, after all.
