198w ago - Designer Pete Stott of SCEE's Digital Comics Team has posted up this week's PSP Digital Comics Store update today on the PlayStation Blog, as follows:
This week's gargantuan store update sees a mind-blowing 61 comics for each & every one of you to get your sticky hands on.
Marvel afficionados can sleep easy (or never at all) with the Digital Comics release of Venom vs Carnage (#1-#4) and the phenomenal X-23: Target X series from 2007 (#1-#6). Plus, there's more Daredevil, Hulk, Wolverine and X-Men to enjoy.
Issue 2 of Cages from Insomnia should satisfy those of you who yearn for bad language, fear and violence. If you haven't picked up the free copy of issue #1 yet, what are you waiting for?
Fans of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep can also rejoice with brand new episodes, and Tank Girl - "The most rock'n'roll comic book character ever" according to the NME - returns with her marsupial hubby Booga as they find themselves the victims of the worst run of bad luck ever. Tank Girl: Visions of Booga #1-#4 are now available for the PSP.
198w ago - Today Public Relations Manager Alex Armour has blogged about the PlayStation NBA All-Star weekend, which features custom PSPGos, PS3 games and more!
To quote: The convergence of athletes and videogames was apparent this past weekend as PlayStation once again powered up the official NBA Players' Lounge at NBA All-Star Weekend in Dallas.
This was yet again a great opportunity to give players and families a chance to relax, get some food and drink, and play some of the latest PlayStation games including MLB 10: The Show, Gran Turismo 5, ModNation Racers and God of War III.
Of course we didn't just leave it at that. We also brought back the custom laser etching machine to carve some customized designs into PSPgos and wooden cases to provide for the all-star players. The PSPs were painted with unique all-star colors in a variety of styles, and etched with a design of the player's choice.
The laser machine went into overtime though, as the team laser etched the customized PSP boxes, a variety of notebooks, and even random guest items like phones and laptops. Additionally, Sony Electronics was kind enough to donate some equipment to also include for the players.
198w ago - Sony is testing out a new anti-piracy system with the recently released title SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 for the PSP console.
Those seeking to go online with the game have to be validated via registration before doing so, therefore, pirated copies of the game will not be able to go online without the special voucher code.
To quote: "Any hopes today marks the beginning of the end of the rampant piracy seen on its PSP platform. SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3, released today, is Sony's first test at discouraging pirates from downloading PSP software.
Those who purchase SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 are now required to register the title through PlayStation Network before given access to online gameplay. UMD copies of the game will come with a voucher code that must be redeemed online, while digital copies will automatically register in the background. Those who buy a used copy of the UMD can purchase a PSN entitlement voucher for $20 to play online.
We spoke recently with John Koller, director of hardware marketing at SCEA, about this new initiative to combat piracy on PSP and when we may see it appear on other titles and platforms.
199w ago - SCEA Senior Producer Mark Rogers has announced that SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 launches today for PSP and has shared a video below, as follows:

Players will be immersed in five classic and objective based game modes across eight diverse custom maps based on the single-player campaign. If you haven't already pre-ordered...
