102w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the first European Game Store and PS Plus updates for the new year today, as follows below:
Welcome to 2012, this year looks like it is going to be a big one for us at Sony with the launch of PSVita on 22nd February as well as some new (and old) games and content you have been requesting.
However sadly this week don't have loads coming to the store this week (which after Christmas and the Festive Sale might be a slight relief for your wallets) but what we do have I think will put a smile on your faces.
First off we have All Zombies Must Die, a must have for all you twin-stick shooter, zombie mayhem fans. We also have the PSone classic Wild Arms available from today and the Batman Arkham City - Challenge Map Pack to further test your cap crusading skills.
And just to finish off, I don't usually highlight avatars but the Warlords avatars we have coming to the store today I think look really cool, so check them out.
So that's it for another week from me, see you in the comments, BYE!!

102w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with the first batch of PSN US updates for 2012 below, as follows:
Happy New Year and welcome to the first PlayStation Store update for 2012! It's going to be an exciting year with lots to look forward to on PlayStation Network, so with that said, let's get to the good stuff.
With football action in full swing, now may be the perfect time to up the action with NFL Blitz; especially if your favorite team might not be looking so good to make it to the playoffs!
Rewrite your season with the arcade-style gameplay that made the original a hit, packed with the immersive game modes of today. NFL Blitz is recharged and available now on PlayStation Network.

102w ago - Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray has shared a video below today of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD which is available now on PSN.
To quote: In case you missed it over the long holiday break, we released Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD on PSN on December 27th! Additionally, I wanted to thank PlayStation players for their endless support over the past year or so since we announced it. We hope you enjoy it!
If you haven't played Stranger's Wrath yet, the launch trailer does a good job showing off the game's key features: 60 frames-per-second action in both first-person and third-person perspectives, all set within the unique universe of Oddworld. For those that don't know what Stranger's Wrath HD is all about, let me tell you a story...
Tall, dark, and passive-aggressive, a Stranger is lured out of routine bounty hunting by the prospect of a one time, bounty-to-end-all bounties moolah maker. He's got a short but pricey personal shopping list and he's finally found a way to check it off.
With moolah on his mind, our Stranger travels from town to town facing off with mentally challenged Outlaws, violently ignorant Clakkerz, and paranoid, relic-hiding native Grubbs.
