To quote: The 2011-12 hockey season drops the puck on the ice, and the PS3, today!
That's right, the PS3 is still the only gaming console to stream live out-of-market hockey games in HD, and this season, in addition to enhanced streaming capabilities, users in the United States and Canada can now download the new NHL GameCenter application for free.
That means users who enjoy free access to PlayStation Network and do not have a subscription to NHL GameCenter LIVE can still have access to a wide range of NHL content through the NHL GameCenter application, including features such as post-game highlights, team schedules, standings, player stats and full NHL scoreboard.
Of course, if you are already an NHL GameCenter LIVE subscriber, you can also stream every 2011-12 regular season game in High Definition on the PS3 - local blackout restrictions do apply.

114w ago - PlayStation Network Senior Director Susan Panico has shared a video introducing Only On PSN today, which spotlights new PS3 exclusive games throughout October, 2011.
To quote: We're excited to announce a new program called "Only On PSN," which features brand new games that are exclusively available on PlayStation Network throughout October.
Every week starting tomorrow, October 4, you will find new titles, unique to PSN that are part of this program - games that you've likely read about, or seen during our showing at E3 2011.
You may recall our announcement a few months ago about investing $20 million in exclusive PSN titles, and the Only On PlayStation Network program showcases two titles spawning from this investment: Eufloria and Okabu.
We can't wait for you to get your hands on the Only On PSN games yourselves, so we're giving you a few special offers throughout the course of the program. First, to sweeten the deal, we'll be offering PlayStation Plus subscribers a 20% discount on each game during the first week of its availability.
Additionally, users who spend $60 or more out of their PlayStation Network/Sony Entertainment Network wallet through the month of October will get $10 back in November.

Below is one of the PS3 NFO files for Alien.Breed.Impact.PSN.PS3-DUPLEX.nfo from their PlayStation Network game releases along with an ongoing list of NPDRM decrypted titles, as follows:
Release Info: Alien BreedT Impact is an explosive science fiction arcade-shooter that resurrects a much revered franchise with an epic story, swarms of highly intelligent alien enemies, high-impact weapons, highly detailed and rich environments; all implemented with superb technology in a state-of-the-art gaming experience.
Notes: Since no scene group managed yet, we thought it's time to work on some PSN games to give everyone something to play for CFW 3.55. Fully decrypted .elfs are included as proof and of course for educational purposes
