68w ago - Today Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN updates below, as follows:
Update: Sadly Killzone 3 Multiplayer will only release as a Trial today. We're working hard to get the unlock available as soon as possible.
And so, we reach a new Wednesday which only means some more updates to the PS Store. Have you guys been keeping busy with your new Vita, or has your PS3 seen a little bit of lovin', too? So long as some gaming is being done, that is what I want to hear.
This week you'll notice some changes in the list of updates. Instead of the previous list that we used to run with we're now listing the information in a table format, which I hope is clearer to our readers.
You'll also notice Australian pricing has now been added as some of you had requested this a few times. There may be some occasional changes to the layout so we can get things just right, but hopefully this will be what you'll be seeing from now on.
So, down to the nitty gritty!
Choplifter HD, Bioshock 2 and the Jak and Daxter Trilogy all make their way to the store this week. Choplifter HD has been asked about a fair bit so I'm glad this is now out. I also know some of you had to wait an extra week to get your paws on Jak...

Hello again gamers! As I'm sure some of you will be busy with your new PlayStation Vitas, you may have forgotten about the usual update. No matter, I hope this serves as a good reminder to you.
The Starhawk Beta, previously a PS Plus member's exclusive, is now available for all to take part in.
Word of warning the beta is only up until March 7th so be sure to at least give it a try before you regret it, because we've all fallen into that "I'll check it later" scenario.
SSX also gets a demo heading onto the PS Store. Also of note, this too is only available for a limited time. Looks like time must be spent wisely this week. The demo includes online play and a new feature dubbed RiderNet.
With a handful of modes to check out, player's ghosts of race times and scores will be uploaded to the SSX server. RiderNet will recommend challenges as players take on their friends' ghosts or let their own ghosts chalk up wins and losses, even while they're away from their console. Some of the features to look out for include;
• JT2, a race event in the Rockies and Bulldog, a night time trick event in New Zealand

With the official launch of PS Vita at hand, we're augmenting last week's PS Store launch on PS Vita with another stellar update as well as some new PS3 Full Games, world class demos and one pre-order opportunity you won't want to miss.
To start, one of the biggest games of the year is coming straight to PSN, the same day it's available at retail. Mass Effect 3 will be available to download on March 6th and to celebrate, we've partnered with EA to bring you a special pre-order on the PlayStation Store.
Pre-order on the PlayStation Store now and get the M-55 Argus Assault Rifle and the Mass Effect 3 - Take Earth Back Theme.
PS Vita games are also easy to look to as the star of the show this week. Games like TALES FROM SPACE: MUTANT BLOBS ATTACK, Touch My Katamari and Plants Vs Zombies pepper the PlayStation Store with some great gaming experiences. There's even a new PS minis triple pack from Grip Games with 3 of their best hits, playable on PS Vita.
But don't miss out on the other Vita-only experiences like the AR (Augmented Reality) games Cliff Diving, Table Soccer and Fireworks. You'll also be excited to see the first wave of apps...
