201w ago - Today Mike Kebby of SCEE's PlayStation Store Team has posted this week's European PSN update, as follows:
Another week, another batch of fresh content delivered straight to your door...
Two of my personal gaming highlights of last year get additional content; for Assassin's Creed II you can rejoin Ezio, piecing together more memories in Sequence 12: Battle of Forli, with six new challenges, and another chance to pilot Leonardo's flying machine.
Then for Uncharted 2 you can get some multiplayer love with the addition of some new skins. Not just any old skins too, these are skins taken from some of our most recent PlayStation releases!
Talking of Uncharted 2, for those of you who have not tried the game yet, then the demo is here to set that right. Taking in some of the action from Nepal, you'll experience this amazing game for yourself (I'm not just saying that because I feel obliged too either...it truly is a wonderful game).
You've also got one final week to grab the special offers below, and then they're gone, with a new batch to follow... ooooh, exciting I know.
202w ago - Today Mike Kebby of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has shared this week's European PSN update, as follows:
Today, as most of you blog readers will know, is the day that we unleash the ModNation Racers Beta for you, and for the first 100,000 people who download it when the store updates (should be mid-afternoon), I can assure you, you'll be having a LOT of fun. I will update on here, and via my twitter feed, as soon as the store is live.
We also have a fresh batch of special offers available for you, with a selection that should cater for all tastes. Personally, I think Smash Cars is great value, and that reduction on Unbound Saga is also very tempting is it not? Okay, enough tactless sales attempts I promise.
We also have some new dynamic themes for Heavy Rain, Buzz! and Singstar, and another mini title, Vector TD, is added to the minis family. This is all wrapped up with a few more bits and pieces, full details below.
Finally, this week, in another attempt to shamelessly please you all with freebies, I have a couple of handfuls of dynamically themed codes (very subtle hint on what they're for I know) to give away.
However, rather than ask you to pander to me for them, let's try this instead; those who want to try and get a code from me reply below...

Last week's special offers continue for one more week (with a new batch coming on the 21st) so don't forget to check those out if you haven't already.
We've gone a bit demo friendly this week with Vancouver 2010 and Inferno Pool for PS3, and Football Manager Handheld 2010 and Army of Two: The 40th Day for PSP available. This leads me nicely onto the fact that we'll also have the full game of 40th Day available this Friday too.
Throw into the mix one full game, another PSP game, one mini, one PSone game and a bunch of downloadable content, and that makes this week's publish. Oh, and a personal highlight, a trailer for Yakuza 3, it's coming!!
That's your lot this week; I'll catch you in the comments section. Cheers.

204w ago - SCEE's Mike Kebby of the PlayStation Store Team is back in the new year with this week's European PlayStation Store update.
To quote: So, it's my first post of 2010, bye bye 2009 it was fun. What were your highlights of the year we've just left by the wayside? What are your resolutions for the coming year (apart from playing lots of games of course)?
Personally, I thought 2009 was a pretty good year for gaming, but I think from many aspects a lot of what made 2009 good for me (apart from the games actually released) were the glimpses, and promises, of what's to come this year.
Even though I didn't manage to get there myself, I felt that E3 really cranked up the expectations of what is to come in 2010...I feel it could be a vintage year for the gaming industry (though I reserve the right to renege on this assumption this time next year, if I'm wrong).
As for my resolutions this year, I'll be striving to help continue improving the store and the offering we make available to you all (that actually goes without saying really), I'll try and interact with you all more than I have been thus far, and my final resolution is to get more platinum trophies!
To help us improve, this week could you do me a kindness in the comments section and provide your...
207w ago - SCEE's Mike Kebby of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the final European PSN update of 2009, as follows:
It's the last update of the year; I can't believe it! I think we've made inroads into improving the store this year, and of course I have high hopes that we'll carry this momentum on into 2010.
As with last week, we're feeling generous, so I have some codes to give away (these codes will be for one piece of content available via the store) - there is no competition to enter, I'll just be reading all the comments and giving codes out to those I deem the best comments made.
Think of this as the blog version of 'letters of the month' you find in print magazines I'll respond on the blog to tell you you've got a code, and then I'll send it to you via a PSN message.
Onto the content this week then - Hustle Kings is here, and offers all you wannabe hustlers out there to chance to show off your skills with the cue. The classic RPG Vagrant Story also arrives, and is available to play on both PS3 and PSP.
We have our first batch of premium avatars available on the store; and these are all from the world of LittleBigPlanet, so know you can personalise your PSN ID with some of the sackboy costumes we've previously released.
