100w ago - Today Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the European PSN updates and details on a sale currently going on below, as follows:
Greetings! Another week brings another content update to the PlayStation Store!
To start with, we have AMY from Lexis Numerique - a survival horror game not for the faint of heart.
If you're too frightened then there's Zack Zero, a 3D platform action title from Crocodile.
Demo wise we have Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Asura's Wrath to play around with - two games I am greatly looking forward to!
This week also brings more content for titles ranging from Battlefield 3 (pew pew pew!) to EyePet (pet pet pet?)
Finally, at the bottom of this post you will find answers to some of the most frequent questions in the comments from last week's post.
We're taking this approach because, while we would love to answer everyone and everything instantly, sometimes giving an accurate answer requires further research, legal clearance or approval from one of our third-party partners.
We will still get involved in the comments and endeavour to respond as much as we can; if you're query isn't answered right away then rest assured that we do read them and hopefully it will be addressed...

100w ago - Sony PlayStation Home Community Manager Locust_Star has announced today that beginning Wednesday eleven new games will be coming to PlayStation Home!
To quote: This Wednesday, January 11th will see yet another enormous update to PlayStation Home, with new games to play, a massive expansion to one of our most popular titles, and tons of collectible items.
For starters, our friends over at Digital Leisure are opening the doors to their all-new Casino game space.
Many of you have been asking for more casino-styled games since the launch of PlayStation Home Hold 'Em and we're proud to serve up an extremely elegant game space plucked straight from the Strip with all of the fun of a Vegas vacation without the high cost of admission.
From Blackjack and Poker and Casino War to Big Six Wheel and Keno and Slots, we've got you covered no matter what your game of choice is. Of course, no PlayStation Home game would be complete without some seriously awesome rewards, so Digital Leisure decided to add over 100 of them, including clothing, furniture, and even a luxury hotel room befitting the highest of high rollers (not that you'll be doing much sleeping once the Casino releases...)

100w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has posted up a video today announcing that Galaxy Fight is now playing the blues in the PSN Import Store.
To quote: When my son talks about his favorite rock bands and the music of today, I always advise him to listen to the blues.
To fully understand music, you have to look at its roots. The blues brought us many of today's contemporary sounds. Art of any form is a collection of creative inspiration. Past masters influence resonate with today's prodigies and new art is conceived. The same is true of games.
One reason retro gaming is enjoying its recent renaissance is because gamers want to go back to their roots. Today's games, with their mesmerizing graphics, sometimes lack a simple hook. Graphics can become a form of marketing, which can distort the mechanics and gameplay. Retro games didn't have that luxury.
MonkeyPaw is all about the chance to relive some of those great games that made you a gaming junkie. So today we present a title that reminds us of our fighting game foundations. Galaxy Fight is a classic SunSoft title that strangely never found its way West.
You'll see the first time an "endless" platform was used in...
