Just under two months since the previous PlayStation 3 system software update has passed, and today Sony has released PS3 Firmware version 3.56.

For those wondering, PS3 JailBreak and Custom Firmware users can still access PSN via the bypass methods but read the IRC log below as a "rootkit" was found in PS3 Firmware 3.56 which reportedly allows Sony to scan for PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware or any unofficial homebrew software.

European PSN Game Store Updates for January 26, 2011

190w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN updates today, as follows:

The mighty Dead Space 2 launches this week, bringing with it a new standard in survival horror, but let's not forget that the PS3 version takes it up a notch with the inclusion of Dead Space: Extraction, the semi on-rails shooter prequel to Dead Space and one of the best Nintendo Wii games of 2009.

Re-mastered in HD, Move compatible (but also supports the Dual Shock) and complete with co-op, this is a game no Dead Space fan should be without - for the time being, new copies of Dead Space 2 will have Extraction included in the box, but for all you thrifty second-hand purchasers or those who wait to get Dead Space 2 and miss out on the Limited Edition, you can always snag Extraction direct from the Store.

What else is on offer this week? Well, this update is small but perfectly formed and we have a little bit of everything.

We've got the demo for BulletStorm, the surprisingly awesome new shooter from Epic Games - the demo gives you a chance to run through one level and attempt to get the best score possible - online leaderboards are implemented too.

PSP get two new RPGs in the form of Spectral Souls II, strategy RPGing at its finest and another...

European PSN Game Store Updates for January 19, 2011

191w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN updates today, as follows:

I hope you had a good start to the week and 'Blue Monday' didn't hit you too hard! It's Wednesday so we've got a Store update for you, including the kick off of the January sales.

Two fabulous new PSN games hit today (complete with trials) in the form of Spare Parts - the new robotic adventure from EA and Modern Combat: Domination, a Move-enabled FPS with compelling gameplay at a compelling price. If you've ever played a game of Counterstrike you'll be instantly at home with this one.

New minis hit as well, including the wildly popular Shift extended, the previously Plus-only Pipe Madness and Soccer Bashi.

Downloadable content? Well why not, eh? Trinity Universe, Tron: Evolution, R.U.S.E. and lots of extra bits and pieces for the newly released Mass Effect II - but don't get the Cerberus pack if you've purchased a version of the game with the extra content included in the box.

Also we've got another multiplayer update for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood which will cost you precisely nothing - isn't that nice?
