110w ago - PlayStation Digital Platforms Senior Director Jack Buser has posted up some videos today proclaiming that a new era for PSN officially begins with Journey!

To quote: It is an incredibly exciting time for PlayStation Network and PlayStation Plus.

This week we not only saw a midnight launch of Mass Effect 3 on PlayStation Network, day and date with the retail release, but we offered access to one of the best games of the year and one of the best downloadable games ever- Journey- a whole week early to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Every month PlayStation Plus subscribers are getting more and more great content out of their subscriptions, and this week's early access marked a new milestone.

PlayStation Plus now not only offers gamers early access to demos and betas but also to full downloadable games, in addition to the tons of free and discounted content and extra exclusive features like online storage for game saves and automatic updates.

That's why we are so excited to be able to deliver Journey, one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year, to our most die-hard fans, our PS Plus subscribers, a whole week early so they can experience it before everyone else.

118w ago - SCEA Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has officially announced today alongside a video and FAQ that the Starhawk Public PS3 Beta begins on Tuesday, January 17, 2012.

To quote: This past November and December we conducted our Private Beta for Starhawk. It was incredibly valuable to our team at LightBox and SCEA Santa Monica.

We really appreciate all of the time that players have spent uncovering bugs and glitches, we would have never been able to find this many of them without real-world gameplay.

The Beta effort has been a true partnership with our community so we humbly thank you all. Without your help, we wouldn€t be able to progress to the next chapter in the development of the game: the Public Beta!

We€re now happy to announce that the Starhawk Public Beta begins this Tuesday, January 17th. This is a crucial step for us as we€ll be testing all sorts of things, including game balance, server traffic, and general bugs.

This is also a chance for more players to finally see what we€ve been working so hard on. As we€ve been getting so much support and encouragement from fans and press alike, we€re excited to spread the love and get more input to make the best game possible.

If you don€t get on day one, don€t get discouraged: our Private Beta will be €slow rolled.€ That means that we€ll slowly add more fans and features as the Private Beta progresses.

Making a game is hard work, but it's also a lot of fun! To show you what I mean, check out this new Behind the Scenes video to give you an inside look at the SCEA Santa Monica/LightBox Interactive working life! We really, really appreciate the Warhawk faithful joining us in our Beta efforts.
