154w ago - SCEA Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi has shared some holiday Beat Sketcher user videos today alongside news of an updated demo on PSN.
To quote: It's been a few weeks since Beat Sketcher for PlayStation Move released onto PSN in the U.S. and we've been checking out all the great Beat Sketcher videos that fans are posting onto YouTube every day!
We're having so much fun and we'd like to thank you all for sharing your videos. This week we'd like to introduce few videos that caught the attention of the team.
Yasuhiro Kawagoe - Sound Director *noisycroak Co., Ltd.
"I liked the uniqueness of drawing traditional Japanese"ORIGAMI" using Japanese sounds. Also, I was surprised by the idea of having the background pattern come up using the eraser at the end of the video!"

I've got good news: Spelunker HD for PS3 is coming to the PlayStation Store for $9.99 on November 23rd!
Spelunker HD closely follows Timothy Martin's brilliant original effort of 1983, even down to the quirky level-scrolling scheme that forces the explorer to get dangerously close to the screen edges. All of the cursed original enemies and terrain threats remain, but with so many new additions I've lost count.
It boasts 100 all-new levels set in 10 newly designed HD worlds, plus the familiar explorer who is liable to pass out from lacing up his boots too tightly: Spelunker may have the weakest character in all of gaming!
But what this anemic explorer lacks in might, he makes up for in bravery. He'll need it because Spelunker HD has more pits, tricks, traps and enemies than a cactus has spines.
210w ago - Update: According to TheSixthAxis.com, SCEE's Community Team Leader MusterBusterconfirmed this is a typo, to quote: "This is a typo - the number of activated consoles is STILL 5. You should receive an updated email within the next few days."
Several months ago Sony sent out a warning to those involved in PSN game sharing, and recently the European PlayStation Network Terms of Service (linked above) has been updated to reflect this.
Although the US Terms of Service still state that "You can download the title to up to 5 different PLAYSTATION 3 systems" the EU counterpart now states only three, to quote:
