156w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Product Manager James Thorpe has unveiled the treats for PlayStation Plus subscribers this week, which include Dead Nation and Hustle Kings avatars and access to the LBP2 PS3 Open Beta.
To quote: Hi Guys, it's already time to give you the first installment of your festive December treats. So here goes...
You may have seen Alex's post last month about LittleBigPlanet 2 and the amazing new game coming to PSN on 15 December: Sack Boy's Prehistoric Moves.
We thought you guys might like this so we are giving it to you completely free and one week before everyone else on PSN. New, free and early!
The second treat today is also LBP2 related. We were gutted we couldn't give you the first LBP2 beta exclusively but to hopefully make up for it a little, we have managed to persuade the guys to extend the LBP2 beta for you Plus members.
The numbers are unfortunately limited but if you have been chosen then you should have already received an email and are hopefully playing, creating and sharing as we speak.
Another treat for this month is something you have been asking for: There are two Dead Nation Avatars now available for download. Check out your exclusive 'Hero' and 'Heroine' avatars today.
173w ago - DDR Music Composer Naoki Maeda has announced today that DanceDanceRevolution is coming to PS3 complete with PlayStation Move support, and those who wish to check out a demo can do so today in LA.
To quote: My name is Naoki Maeda, and I'm the Music Composer and one of the creators of DanceDanceRevolution! If you're not familiar with DanceDanceRevolution, it's the cult favorite arcade game and pioneering dance game that started it all!
If you followed the franchise, you know that we've been a part of the PlayStation family for years now. In fact, we recently teamed with the SCEA and the state of West Virginia to bring DanceDanceRevolution with the PlayStation 2, to all of the public schools in the state of West Virginia.
This program, designed to combat childhood obesity, was a big hit – with Governor Joe Manchinpraising it and Michelle Obama even stating President Obama has DanceDanceRevolution.
With each year and each iteration of DanceDanceRevolution, we work to bring new and fun challenges to players – which leads us to today, where I'm happy to announce DanceDanceRevolution...

183w ago - A tipster on PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above) has shared pictures of a new and yet-unannounced PS3 Slim 250GB bundle which includes an HDMI cable and LittleBigPlanet Game Of The Year 'Greatest Hits' Edition for only $349.99!
Now consumers won't have to fork over more cash for a high-definition cable in order to enjoy 1080p PlayStation 3 games and Blu-ray movies, providing of course that the 6-foot HDMI cable included is long enough to suit your needs.
To quote: "As if the 250GB PS3 SKU wasn't already a great value, being only $50 more than the 120GB SKU and featuring double the HDD capacity. Now, the 250 SKU will be packed with a 6-foot HDMI cable and the Greatest Hits Game of the Year Edition of LittleBigPlanet, which is still one of the most highly-regarded titles of this generation. Here's the kicker: it's still only $349.99!
Don't believe this amazing value? We didn't either, but a PSLS faithful tipster with retail experience sent us the pictures below for confirmation!"
