202w ago - Update: Sony has officially announced the ITV Player will be heading to PS3 today at GamesCom 2010, and will offer new channels including Yahoo 7 (Australia), ITV, Animax and NOS YLE Areena.

Today Made2Game.com (linked above) reports that the ITV Player may be coming to PS3, and ITV are currently in discussions with Sony about the possible launch.

For those unaware, ITV is a public service network of British commercial television broadcasters, set up under the Independent Television Authority (ITA) to provide competition to the BBC.

ITV is the oldest commercial television network in the UK, having begun broadcasting in 1955.

To quote from Telegraph.co.uk:

"ITV is also understood to be in discussions with Sony about launching ITV Player on the PS3 games console, according to the same source. The service would be streamed and advertising supported. It is hoping to launch on this platform also by the beginning of September.

Nintendo€s Wii platform will not allow advertising and Microsoft€s Xbox does not allow free content as it charges for all web content via its Xbox Live platform."

204w ago - Today Mike Kebby of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PlayStation Store update, as follows:

The first of the new games I want to highlight this week is Fret Nice, which takes the world of guitar based rock and platforming gameplay mechanics and combines them into a side-scrolling game€intriguing no?

Moving on, we have the sequel to Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer, this time with an easier to pronounce title too; Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype.

This game features masses of enemies, an arsenal of explosive weaponry, and looks pretty gorgeous too, it€s also a great reminder of the old-school side-scrolling shooters of yesteryear too (what is it with side-scrolling games this week?).

For those of you who have bought the Sam and Max bundle, then Episode 2: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak (catchy title huh, did you see what they did there?) is available this week too.

I€m sure there will be many of you who have not had enough Final Fantasy in your life recently, so we€re pleased to say that the PSone release of Final Fantasy IX also hits the store today!

As mentioned on the blog earlier this week, we have the madcap mini Feel For Two available this week, and what€s there not to love about a game that features mini-games with...
