186w ago - Sony's Manager of Content Services Nino Kalogeropoulos has shared details of Australia's new PSN video store today alongside highlights of the exclusive OZ community event.
To quote: A special community event entitled 'PlayStation Life in 2010′ was held on May 18th at an exclusive location at Sydney's Coogee Beach, to usher in the arrival of the PlayStation Network video delivery service for Australia. Yay!
Now available, the PS Video Store allows Aussie PS3 and PSP owners to rent or buy hundreds of SD and HD movies, including the latest releases like Avatar, Inglourious Basterds, Up In The Air, Ninja Assassin, Sherlock Holmes, and Twilight New Moon.
New movies will be added to the Store on a weekly basis for the movie junkies in us all, and you can browse the available movies right here on the new PS Movies Web area.
Hollywood Actress Radha Mitchell (star of the recent film 'The Surrogates' alongside Bruce Willis) was a special guest at the event, along with Alison Turner, the Marketing Director of Sony Network Entertainment, and Michael Ephraim, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia.
But the PS Video store isn't the only product that was experienced at this exclusive...
186w ago - SCEE's Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has posted up the European PlayStation Home update today, which includes a new Minis Event in the Observatory plus Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
To quote: We're bringing you a brand new minis experience this Thursday, with the latest PlayStation Home event. Make your way to the top level of the brand new "The Observatory" space, where you can challenge a friend to a duel of memory, wits and a little luck.
Enter into a minis duel, competing over a board consisting of a grid of glowing, face-down tiles. Flip the tiles over to reveal a variety of minis titles; reveal two matching tiles to score a point.
Sounds simple? The fun starts with random tiles hiding bonuses or traps, such as a tile that steals points from your opponent. You can even hide traps of your own, hoping to catch out your opponent. Beware, though: they may shuffle the board and your own trap could catch you out!
In true minis fashion this simple concept is fiendishly addictive, so don't forget to drag yourself away to explore the rest of The Observatory. The futuristic pool-like game FreezeBall returns exclusively to the minis event space.
Browse the latest minis titles, available for purchase and download for PS3 and PSP. Winners of the minis duel...

190w ago - Today Community Senior Manager Seth Killian has announced news of a Super Street Fighter IV event this Friday hosted by Sony in conjunction with Capcom.
To quote: For those who don't know, we call these things "Fight Clubs" and the concept is pretty simple.
We find an underground location (sometimes literally underground, sometimes just an abandoned warehouse, sometimes a sneaker shop, but you get the idea), and drop a bunch of Street Fighter games in there, then let people throw down in arcade-style, face-to-face combat.
We spice it up with some totally exclusive shirt giveaways, exclusive artwork and giftbags, and maybe... just maybe, some extra epic events.
The party is going down this Friday, April 23rd, from 8pm to midnight, in Los Angeles, CA (in the Silver Lake neighborhood).
We'll post the exact address on Thursday, so stay tuned, but here's a little taste...
