Featured New Releases:
Lana Del Rey - Born to Die
Lana Del Rey has certainly made a splash before and after releasing the hit song "Video Games" in October. She has since intoxicated the music industry, which has watched her every move leading up to the release of Born to Die. A kick back to some of the bouncy story-telling of acts like Lily Allen, her sultry perception ping-pongs more between summer songs and haunting ballads. One thing is for sure - all eyes are on her for some time to come.

96w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has announced today that Worms Ultimate Mayhem will be obliterating PSN on February 14, 2012.
To quote: We are delighted to be able to announce the U.S. release date of Worms Ultimate Mayhem is Tuesday February 14, 2012. We'd also like to introduce the game to you all and answer any questions you may have.
Can you introduce the game to us please?
Sure, Worms Ultimate Mayhem is a "best of" compilation of content from both Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, so it's got 38 weapons, plenty of customization options (including a selection of new ones) making for 115 individual customization elements in total.
There are also 60 single-player missions taken from both sources, making it a massive game. We've taken the opportunity to improve on what was there already too. We have made some really nice improvements to the camera and made the game even more approachable; to this end we added a new utility (the Binoculars) to help you aim, and an automatic shot assist mechanic that helps your shots find their targets in easy mode. We have also added some really cool loyalty content too.
In terms of visual improvements, we've brought the game up to date with a raft of enhancements. New water effects, up-scaled textures and fonts, higher...
96w ago - Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video run-through on the competitive online play in MotorStorm RC for both PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: MotorStorm RC is a few short weeks away and already the competitive online cross-play at its heart is igniting intense rivalries.
Here at Evolution Studios there's been a lot of competition for the best performances on every track and we're thrilled that gamers and journalists are experiencing this at special preview events all around the world.
Ahead of getting the opportunity to jump into the competition for yourself, I'm here to give you the low down on just how online competition works with other players - running you through a short video of me competing with Zoe (Evolution Studios QA Manager, who sits on the desk across from me) as I take on her performance in a Hot Lap race.
It's so easy to see what your friends and rivals have been up to and, with super-fast load times on both PS3 and PS Vita, jump into a race instantly to beat their fastest times and wipe the smirk off their face.
Competing like this, on your own schedule, is a perfect fit for both MotorStorm RC and the PlayStation Vita, letting you pick up the game and compete...

96w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates today, as follows:
This week, the folks at Konami are excited to bring you the new PSN Release Puddle! Relying on the physics of water and other fluids (hot magma anyone?) in ever-evolving environments, you'll need to guide the fluid flow with precision to get to the goal.
While it seems like a simple concept, the gameplay requires a fun puzzle-focused mentality where you must tilt the entire environment, balancing the push of each fluid's unique properties with the pull of environmental factors of gravity, friction, and obstacles.
With PlayStation Move compatibility, and a demo available as well, Puddle is set to make a big splash on PlayStation Network.
You may have seen EA's news predicting the Super Bowl winners with Madden NFL 12. If you haven't picked up this year's edition yet, you can set up your own Super Bowl match yourself as it's now available in the PS3 Full Games category.
Joining it is also Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, its predecessor Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, and Mini Ninjas. PlayStation Plus subscribers will have access to a 1 hour rental of all of these via Full Game Trials as well.
Twisted Metal fans; the big day is almost here. Although you won't be able...
