by: Chuck -
It looks like Sony is finally getting around to posting a ton of stuff on the Playstation Network.  Available later today (I just checked and it wasn't up yet) will be a demos for Ninga Gaiden Sigma and Vitua Tennis along with videos for Gauntlet II, The Wheelman, Stranglehold, and The Godfather.

SCEA on Thursday will launch several new PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) game demos and trailers on the PLAYSTATION®Store, including a demo for the PS3 exclusive, Ninja Gaiden Sigma.


In other news, sales figures published this week by Home Media Research showed that Blu-ray Disc sales accounted for 70 percent of high-definition film purchases in Q1 2007. Blu-ray also became the first high-definition format to sell more than a million discs, achieving the feat in less than a year.
