110w ago - Urbanscan Product Manager Jon Hughes has revealed today that Premier Manager 2012 will be hitting PSN on November 9th, with details below as follows:
It's great to be back to tell you about the PlayStation Network launch of Premier Manager 2012 on November 9th for the special launch price of £9.99.
We've been working hard over the summer to bring you an even bigger and better football management experience for your PlayStation 3.
Whilst discussing new ideas for the game, we often have a debate in the office as to who is the greatest football manager of all time; Ferguson, Hitzfeld, Michels, Clough, Mourihno?
Generally we come to the conclusion that it is difficult to compare managers of today with those from days gone by. Modern day management is all about managing ego's, paying big wages and keeping the fans happy with big money signings and you'll find all of that covered in Premier Manager 2012 with our improved morale system.
One thing however that hasn't changed over the years is the challenge of getting the very best out of the players at your club, that's where the top managers separate themselves from the rest.
It's with that in mind that we developed our 'Unity' system which brings a whole new dimension to preparing...

Some of you may have already gotten the jump on the Fortune Hunters' Club (downloadable from the PlayStation Store) which entitles you to the first four multiplayer map packs, as well as the first three multiplayer skin packs.

110w ago - Sony Brazil PlayStation Manager Fabio Santana has posted up an interview today on The King of Fighters XIII, which will be hitting the PS3 on November 22, 2011.
To quote: We're truly living a fighting games renaissance. Ever since Street Fighter IV reignited the genre in 2009, we've been getting a number of interesting and diverse fight titles, ranging from the lush visuals of BlazBlue to the air combo extravaganza of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Along the way, we had The King of Fighters XII from SNK Playmore, touted as a "re-birth" of the traditional 3-on-3 series. And although it really gave new life to the franchise with gorgeous hi-def 2D sprite art and sleek animation, the game delivered little in terms of contents.
Two years later, SNK Playmore is hard at work to regain the crown with The King of Fighters XIII for PS3 courtesy of Atlus in the US. And based on the prospects, 13 seems to be the lucky number for KOF.
The game was originally launched in Japanese arcades back in July 2010, being praised by fighting game connoisseurs for its vastly expanded roster (31 playable characters, including the return of fan favorite Mai Shiranui), revised fighting system...
