132w ago - Today Killzone 3 PS3 patch version 1.09 has been released, and although the changelog (below) contains many fixes the update's EBOOT.BIN game executable is also encrypted with 3.60 Firmware PS3 Keys meaning those who update won't be able to run it on PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware.
If you are running PS3 CFW and remain on the Killzone (BCES-01007) 1.08 patch or below you will still be able to play the game fine though.
Below is the Killzone 3 PS3 Patch 1.09 changelog from Guerrilla Games PlayStation 3 Developer LevTrin12, to quote:

134w ago - Inline with the COD Black Ops Double XP weekend announcement comes another for Killzone 3 on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!
To quote from Killzone's Community Editor Victor Zuylen on the event news: To celebrate the return of the PlayStation Network and welcome you back to Killzone 3's online battlefield, we've got a Double XP Weekend lined up!
Starting this Friday, May 20 at 17:00 PM UK time, and lasting until Monday, May 23 at 10:00 AM UK time, all XP you earn in Killzone 3's multiplayer matches will be doubled.
The upcoming Double XP Weekend isn't the only Killzone-related goodie in the pipeline. As you may know, Sony has revealed that Killzone: Liberation is part of its Welcome Back Program for PSN members, meaning you'll be able to download the critically acclaimed PlayStation Portable shooter absolutely free of charge. And there's even more... But we'll announce that at a later date.
So stay tuned to Killzone.com, and remember to brush up your Killzone 3 multiplayer skills. This weekend, you'll have a chance to catch up on 3 weeks' worth of rank progression!
140w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb has confirmed that the Killzone 3 Steel Rain PS3 DLC Pack is coming to PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Back in February, we revealed that we were working on a brand-new DLC Pack for Killzone 3 called Steel Rain.
Today, we are proud to announce that the pack is finished and slated for a PlayStation Store release on tomorrow, 6 April.
Steel Rain consists of two explosive new multiplayer maps inspired by locations from the single player campaign: Junkyard, a Guerrilla Warfare map which sees Jetpacks and Exoskeletons clashing in a rain-drenched junk processing facility; and Stahl Arms, a uniquely styled Warzone map set on the factory floor of one of Helghan's largest weapons manufacturing plants.
The map pack will be available from the PlayStation Store April 6th for €4.99. PlayStation Plus members get a special treat: they can download the Steel Rain pack for free for the whole of April.
Check out the footage from both maps and prepare to take the fight to two new fronts.

While the beta download will be removed from the Store with the April 12th PlayStation Store publish, SOCOM 4 Beta servers will be up and running until April 13th.
Though our servers are open all day, every day we do limit what modes are available so that we can keep our testing focused. Here's how the schedule looks this week:
