Just like on XBL, THQ has released a demo for MX vs. ATV Untamed, while Harmonix released launch day content for Rock Band (singles & track packs). There were also price reductions ($4.99 instead of $9.99) for several PSN titles, such as Calling All Cars, Everyday Shooter, fl0w and PixelJunk Racers. New PlayStation Eye titles, Operation Creature Feature ($4.99) and Aquatopia ($1.99), were also featured, as were the usual trailers/movies.

Take on the role of a bounty hunter careening around a stylish cartoon world on the hunt for criminals on the loose. With more than 10 vehicles and four different levels to choose from, Calling All Cars combines demolition derby style action, crazy weapon pickups, humor, and a throwback to classic arcade games.
  • Everyday Shooter (Now $4.99; regularly $9.99): Developed solely by Jonathan Mak, Everyday Shooter won three awards at the Independent Gaming Festival at the 2007 Game Developers Conference. Unlike traditional arcade shooters, the sound effects in Everyday Shooter play in musical harmony with the game’s background music. Throughout Everyday Shooter’s album of games, typical arcade sounds of destruction are replaced with guitar riffs harmonizing over an all-guitar soundtrack.
  • flOw (Now $4.99; regularly $7.99): flOw is a game about piloting an aquatic organism through a surreal biosphere where players consume other organisms, evolve, and dive into the abyss. You can play as one of 5 creatures, each in a unique environment. Lose yourself in the crisp “deep blue” in full HD at 1080p* and 5.1 Surround Sound.
  • PixelJunk Racers (Now $4.99; regularly $6.99): PixelJunk Racers is an addictive slot car racing game that supports 1080p* and features single player and multiplayer fun (up to 7 players simultaneously offline!).
