North American PSN releases for June 1st -- Prepare to be bored

In another rather underwhelming PlayStation Store update, Sony has released the SOE remake of the arcade classic, Championship Sprint, for the standard price of $4.99. Be warned though, even compared to the previous Midway classic remakes, the reviews have been pretty bad on this one. In addition to Championship Sprint, Sony also included a handful of new tutorial videos for their baseball sim MLB 07, for people just dying to know how to play the game. Not particularly interesting for the general market though.

Namco also chipped in this week and released a boatload of Ridge Racer 7 add-ons with dozens of new events and car decals for free. They've also released pack of 20 background songs for the game, but rather surprisingly they actually cost money. The songs can be bought individually for 99 cents or as a package for $14.99. The new events and decals are pretty cool -- it's kind of fun whipping around corners with a Katamari decal plastered on you car. Plus they're free, which is always a nice bonus. The background music is kind of a write off though unless you're really into Ridge Racer tunes.

And finally, rounding out the update are two theatrical trailers; one for the Pixar flick Ratatouille and one for the um ... stuntman movie Hot Rod. Nothing real special here, but if you combine this with the European PSN update -- it's almost a worthwhile release.

1. I suggest everyone create a Japanese account and download the Folklore(Folks Soul) demo. Sure it's all in Japanese but it's easy enough to figure out. Also it's very pretty.

2. Next week are those Resistance updates... I'm hoping for some new demos too, but who knows.

3. The RR7 updates are like 6 months old. They've been in the Japanese store all this time.

4. The PSN needs more games. The VC has its 100th game up. We're still in single digits. Is it that hard to program for...

5. I saw Hot Rod at a special screening last week and it's hysterical.
