This week's update to the PlayStation Store brings some good news, some bad news, and then a glimmer of hope for those that don't like the bad news.

First, the good news: A Killzone 2 demo is available in North America and Europe, offering a glimpse of the anticipated shooter's first two stages.

The bad news? The North American download is limited to those that have pre-ordered the title from GameStop. The demo will be publicly available in the North American marketplace on February 26, one day before the game hits stores.

The glimmer of hope? The European PlayStation Store is offering the entire demo to the public, beginning today. And North Americans can easily make a new PlayStation Network account, one with a European address, to gain access.

Apart from Killzone 2, we've also got a smattering of downloadable content, including the usual Rock Band and Guitar Hero offerings, along with some new Burnout Paradise conent and the big-headed antics of 3 on 3 NHL Arcade.

Downloadable Games

With loads of power-ups falling on the ice to the ability to level a guy clear out of the rink, this is definitely not your typical simulation.
