Go! Sports Ski slides onto PSN

Yuke's budget-release slopes sim joins demos for EA's The Simpsons Game and Koei's Bladestorm on Sony's online store.

Typically a Thursday affair, Sony has issued the details on its weekly update to the PlayStation Network a day early. Included in the new content once the update goes up is the downloadable game Go! Sports Ski, as well as two new demos, one for Koei's Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War and the other for EA's The Simpsons Game.

First seen at this year's Tokyo Game Show, Go! Sports Ski from SmackDown vs. RAW developer Yuke's is a ski sim that makes heavy use of the Sixaxis' motion-sensing controls. In addition to hitting the slopes solo, the game includes split-screen multiplayer racing. Unsurprisingly rated E for Everyone, the game is available at the budget price of $2.99.

Koei has announced that a demo for Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War will arrive on the PSN and Xbox Live simultaneously this week. Having extensively covered Chinese and Japanese warfare with its Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series, Koei will be visiting Medieval Europe with its latest interpretation of historical conflict. Rated T for Teen, Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War slashes onto the PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 6.

A sampler for The Simpsons Game will also hit the PSN this week. Available on a multitude of platforms on October 30, The Simpsons Game presents the dysfunctional family from Springfield with the imposing dilemma of being trapped inside a video game.

So we have a trailer for MGS Online and that's cool and all, but where is the newest MGS4 trailer they showed at TGS? That's what I really want to see in HD.

You have to admitt that Sony is finally putting out good updates. 6 months ago, I would have been shocked if we got one demo.

If bladestorm is just a medieval version of dynasty warriors... I'll pass. I don't really see how a bunch of generic white people in blandly colored suits of armor hacking at each other with equally bland weapons could be more fun than generic asian people in colorful armor hacking away at each other with fancier weapons. Well, maybe if the generic white people all had hackneyed accents.

I'll buy the ski gaming hoping it's good. There's a huge shortage of quality skiing games on every console.

bladestorm blows if you played one dynasty warriors games you played them all even the gundam version stinks, just a bunch of button mashing nonsense. i too am waiting on some classics thps1, metal gear, legacy of kain... just to name a few. but overall as stated sony is at the very least dropping downloads on regular basis.

Cool, looking forward to trying the Simpsons demo and I wasn't that interested in Go! Ski but at a price of $3 I may just get it for the heck of it.

So how many of these Go! games are there going to be? So far we have Sudoku, Puzzle pack, and now Sports Ski, but does anyone even download these games besides me?

Cannot wait for the Simpsons demo. I'm on the fence about buying this game right now, so, hopefully the demo gets me off the fence. Ever try sitting on a fence, with no patting? it hurts

Simpsons demo...looking forward to it! Not typically into buying games like that, but the animation and 3d emulation of 2d characters is totally impressive.
