72w ago - Sony Senior Manager Matthew Harper of PlayStation Digital Platforms has officially announced that PSN will be undergoing scheduled maintenance later tonight.
To quote: It's been a great week for gamers on the PSN.
We've seen the addition of the anime streaming service Crunchyroll to the PS3 lineup of video apps, the highly anticipated game Sound Shapes being made available for preorder through the PSN PLAY event at a 20% discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and The Expendables 2: The Videogame releasing on the PlayStation Store now (check out the demo to get a taste of this game's explosive four-player co-op action!)
To ensure that we can keep offering you the best online games experience, we will be performing routine maintenance on the PSN this evening (Thursday, August 2nd).
This maintenance will start at approximately 12:00am midnight Pacific Time (1:00am MDT / 2:00am CDT /3:00 am EDT) and last for about two hours, ending around 2:00am PDT on Thursday, August 2nd (3:00am MDT / 4:00am CDT / 5:00am EDT).
During this maintenance period you WILL be able to sign in to the Network if you have signed in at some point over the past few days. So please be sure to sign in now if you wish to access PSN during this maintenance window.
72w ago - Today Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the European PSN Game Store updates below, as follows:
Autobots, roll out! Get a taster of Activision's latest Transformers game in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
Play as Bumblebee and Vortex as you fight your way through two exciting chapters of the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game. Then take the fight online with Team Deathmatch and Conquest multiplayer modes, and get a sneak peak at the new character creator.
The much awaited Rock of Ages comes out today which will also be included in PS Plus. There's also Puddle for PS Vita that I know some folks were asking about last week.
For DLC check out those adorable Disney Princess costumes for LittleBigPlanet 2. If adorable isn't your thing, then perhaps fighting spirit is - check out extra characters for Street Fighter x Tekken. New fighters include Bryan Fury, Lei Wulong and one of my favourites, Guy.
Andy's Summer Sale also begins today which you can find by clicking right here. Titles on offer range from LA Noire to Toy Story 3, so hopefully there's something there for all.

From tomorrow until 5th September (that's five weeks this time) all our PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download Dead Space 2 as part of their subscription.
Special thanks go out to EA Games for their support in bringing this fantastic blend of action and survival horror to our members.
Engineer Isaac Clarke returns for the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Space. After waking from a coma in a massive space city known as The Sprawl, the lone survivor of a horrific alien infection finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare.
Not only that but he's also battling dementia, is being hunted by the government and is haunted by visions of his dead girlfriend.
And what where would we be without a massive 50% off all the associated DLC for our Game of the Month? For the next two weeks you can grab the 'Severed' expansion, and three extra special weapons and suit packs for Dead Space 2 at half price.
Simply pick up any of them you like when you go to claim your game from the Plus section on the Store. And with that, let's roll film...
