130w ago - PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen has announced today some deals on Dead Nation and PSOne Classics for PlayStation Plus members alongside a video trailer.
To quote: At the end of November, Housemarque, the developers of Super Stardust HD (the first game to ever feature trophies), returns to the PlayStation Network with the widely-anticipated title, Dead Nation.
PlayStation Plus subscribers can take it to the zombie apocalypse for 20% off. Also, for our trophy hunters out there, Dead Nation has a platinum trophy, so be sure to pick it up while it's on sale!
Looking for something to keep your mind off of the zombie apocalypse? PlayStation Plus subscribers will also receive discounts on two huge PlayStation franchises: Tomb Raider and Twisted Metal. Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation takes Lara Croft to Egypt in the continuation of her adventures on the PSone.
Twisted Metal 2 comes from the mind of David Jaffe and takes gamers deeper into the destruction of Calypso's Twisted Metal tournament. Along with these classics, we are discounting two new import titles, Blockids and Dezaemon Plus, and offering a free download of Vector TD, a tower defense from the minis collection.

130w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Product Manager James Thorpe has shared details on the mid November content updates that PlayStation Plus members can expect today.
To quote: We know how much you all love the extra little treats we give you during the month and this month is no exception!
I was going to make you wait till the end of the post but I'm not that mean.
The Killzone 3 Public Beta has been running for some time and has seen some great feedback from those Plus members lucky enough to have been sent a voucher code. A big thank you to everyone who has taken part so far!
If you are not yet on the Killzone 3 Beta - I would like to bring you some good news!
For a limited amount of time, you will be able to download the Beta straight from the PlayStation Plus section of the PS Store. We will not be sending emails or voucher codes for this; it will simply be available for you to download straight to your console.
Please note that to take part you will need to have an active PlayStation Plus subscription and will need to be a resident in a country in which we operate an EU PlayStation Store - See http://eu.playstation.com for full details.
And here are a few other little treats to keep you going till December.
130w ago - Today stoker25 has released PSIDPatch 1.0 which allows users to change their PS ID's for PlayStation Network, however, PSGroove notes that you must change them to a valid PSN ID versus a random Console ID as follows:
"Changing your PSID to a fake one would protect your console from being permanently banned. However, reports are coming in that using a made up Console ID does not allow you on PSN. This probably means you'd need to swap your ID with another legitimate one."
To quote: Saw Mathiuelh talking about swapping PSIDs on his twitter, as soon as I saw him talking about extracting one from an LV2 dump I knew it would be possible to patch
PSID is your PlayStation's unique identifier to Sony, this program will patch the loaded PSID in memory to one of your choice. This won't permanently patch your PSID, but should let you fool PSN. Best way to try this is for somebody with a banned PS3 to try changing it and going online.
Made and tested on a 3.41 PS3... if your using a different version and patching doesn't work properly please contact me and we'll work out a fix.
130w ago - Today PlayStation Network Sr. Director Susan Panico has officially announced that VUDU is coming to the PS3, adding another choice for PSN members to experience media instantly!
Additionally, Engadget.com reports that "ratings, recommendations, and most interestingly, support for PS3's Move controller" will be rolled out in version 2.0 of the movie service's UI during mid-December.
To quote: It's been an exciting and busy couple of weeks on the PlayStation Network. Last week we shared the news that NHL will begin streaming live games to the PlayStation 3 and that Hulu Plus is now available to all PlayStation Network members and we're not slowing down!
I'm happy to report that beginning next week, VUDU, the HD movie streaming service, will be available to all PS3 users in the United States that are registered to PSN, making it the only gaming console to offer VUDU.
With VUDU, we're adding another layer of great entertainment content to PlayStation Network and providing another choice for PS3 users to experience cinema-quality entertainment in the comfort of their living rooms. Access to VUDU doesn't require a subscription....
