Hi everyone - a long intro from me today, lots of housekeeping and new things to tell you about, but let's kick off with the third title in the PLAY promotion - Bloodrayne: Betrayal launches today.
The original video game femme fatale, Rayne, has returned to battle and feed in a brand new hack 'n slash adventure. Slay ghastly enemies as Rayne, the sexy dhampir with superhuman strength, speed, and agility, recruited by the vampire hunting Brimstone Society for one last mission.

118w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team has shared the new European PlayStation Game Store updates today, as follows:
Hi everyone, it's Store update day and the second title in the PlayStation Network PLAY series is released today - The Baconing - the third instalment in the saga of Deathspank, defender of the downtrodden and thong enthusiast.
You are DeathSpank, a hero and the ultimate Dispenser of Justice. You must defeat the Anti-Spank and his army of Cyborques, before they cast an evil shadow over Spanktopia. Discover exciting new worlds and battle hordes of enemies as you search to unlock the secret within the Fires of Bacon.
Your free gift with this title is an extra character, Roesha, who will be available to download from next week's publish - you can grab it from the PLAY Offer section on the Store, where you'll also be able to pick up your pre-orders.
Also new this week, we have Elevator Action Deluxe from Square Enix, a retro-reboot of the classic spy, document collecting arcade game from days of yore. Well, 1983 was not quite the days of yore but it was a long time ago in videogames! The original arcade game is included in this release so you can see what all the fuss was about.

The following week's PSN PLAY titles are still available for pre-ordering on the Store including BloodRayne: Betrayal and Renegade Ops.
For fighting game fans, you'll want to check out the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. Experience the original trilogy in an entirely new light featuring online play, leaderboards, and trophies. While the visuals have come a long way, the gameplay in these classics (klassics?) is still razor sharp and fun as ever.
PlayStation Plus subscribers also get access to some amazing content this week including first dibs on the God of War: Origins Collection demo. The demo hits all of PSN next week, but Plus subscribers will be some of the first to see how Kratos' PSP adventures have made...
