350°
188w ago - Sony's PSN Marketing Manager Lex Scheuble has updated the PlayStation Plus FAQ today, covering usage, available content and more as follows:

Today we€d like to present some answers to some of the common questions we€ve heard.

Q: What is PlayStation Plus?

A: PlayStation Plus is a subscription service offered to enhance your experience on the already free PlayStation Network. It offers you, the user, exclusive services for added convenience:

€ Automatic downloads where select game demos and other content get delivered straight to your PS3 system, so you don€t have to think about it.
€ Full game trials which allow you to play up to 60 consecutive minutes of a game. When you purchase the full game (or when you insert the Blu-ray disc of that game), you will get the PSN trophies that you earned during the trial.
€ Special discounts on the PlayStation Store and exclusive opportunities like select betas and select early demos.

Our goal is to deliver a valuable enhancement to your gaming experience.

Currently, you can purchase a three-month subscription at $17.99 or an annual subscription at $49.99 with an additional three months free. Subscriptions can be downloaded from the PlayStation Store, or you can purchase PlayStation Network...

188w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has shared a LBP2 video today alongside updates on the LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 Beta, featurettes and a PAX 2010 wrap-up.

To quote: For those of you paying attention, you€ve probably heard that LittleBigPlanet 2 beta codes are being distributed.

Here€s the skinny: Yes, beta codes are going out. But globally, we€re taking steps to best test our server environment, so we€re distributing beta codes in phases.

The first phase of testing started earlier this week with our European LBP community. In a few weeks, we€ll be growing the participant base with US and other countries. More news to come€

Start Featurettes

With so many new features in LittleBigPlanet 2, its impossible to discuss all the new things in one sitting. So we€re introducing a series of LittleBigPlanet 2 Featurettes that highlight some of the many new things you can do in LBP2, such as the new Grappling Hook and the revamped SHARE experience. Stay tuned to the PlayStation.Blog for continuing episodes of LBP2€s Featurettes.

European PS3 & PSP Game Store Update for September 8, 2010

50°
189w ago - SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby is here with this weeks European PSN game store update today!

To quote: This week for you PS3 owners we have two full games available. The classic franchise Worms returns, with more madcap action.

Who honestly would have thought all those years ago that a turn-based game featuring worms and a huge collection of insane weaponry would have captured our imaginations so completely?

I have lost many, many hours through the years on various Worms titles, and now I€m so pleased to be able to the same all over again with Worms 2: Armageddon.

The second full title available takes you to the DANGERZONE (the Kenny Loggins track is my favourite karaoke tune, which you can also find the awesome video on VidZone too)! I couldn€t resist, sorry. Play as Maverick and take to the skies in this new Top Gun adventure.

The only thing this game is missing is mini-games featuring semi-naked volleyball and locker-room towel flicking antics, but the arcade flight action I€m sure will suffice!

There€s also new content for Mafia II, Dragon Age: Origins and more besides. I€m not being lazy, but you know there€s a list of it all below€ so what are waiting for, go and read it.

I€ll be around in the comments,...
