Perhaps the biggest addition to the PlayStation Network Store this week won't cost PlayStation 3 gamers a thing. Those not yet convinced that Naughty Dog's highly acclaimed, multi-award nominated Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is worth their time can pick up a free single-player demo for the game beginning today. The multiplayer-centric PlayStation Heroes pack, which contains seven character skins from other high-profile PS3 exclusives, such as Killzone 2 and Resistance 2, is also available for $4.99.

The PS3 has a trio of original games added to its downloadable library this week as well. VooFoo Studios' Hustle Kings brings billiards to the PS3 for $9.99. Thexder Neo, from Square Enix, is a revamp of the classic PC side-scrolling shooter and features new graphics, features, and modes, as well as six-player online action, for $9.99. Having previously released the game for the Xbox 360 and PC, Wanako Studios will be bringing its top-down shooter Assault Heroes to the PSN this week for $9.99.

PS3 gamers shouldn't need much convincing to at least try Uncharted 2.

Two PSOne Classics also surface on Sony's store this week. Originally released for Sony's first gaming console in 1996, Epic Games' Extreme Pinball is available for $5.99. Bullfrog Productions' futuristic racer Hi-Octane: The Track Fights Back also zips in at the $6 price point.

There's a dearth of content on the PSP store this week, though four new PSP minis will see release. The new micro games released this week are Dracula - Undead Awakening ($4.99), Pinball Dreams ($6.99), Route 66 ($3.99), and Deflector ($3.99).

A full list of the week's deals and new PlayStation Store content, including themes, wallpapers, demos, and add-on content, is available on the official PlayStation Blog.
