PSN Labor Day additions

Tekken 5Sony has prepared a plethora of new content to be released on PlayStationNetwork this Labor Day Weekend, according to Gaming Nexus.

Those expecting a massive PSN blowout before the bountiful Fall season begins however will undoubtedly be disappointed. With three sport demos, a puzzle game, and an addition to Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection, Sony seems to have hit all the major genres.

Problem is none of these games are heavy hitters in the Sony camp. The closest we get are two videos for Heavenly Sword; another "Making of" video and the fourth part in the Heavenly Sword anime. Beyond this there isn’t much to get Sony fans excited.


Here is the official Sony press release:

"Today’s PLAYSTATION Store update features Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and a Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection online add-on; demos for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008, All-Pro Football 2K8, and NASCAR ’08; and the fourth installments of the Heavenly Sword "Making of" video feature and animated series.
