European PlayStation Store Update for October 1, 2009

50°
237w ago - Today Mike Kebby of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted up the European PlayStation Store update, as follows:

So, we've finally arrived to this week's update - I hope you're all ready for the rundown, as there's a lot of content on offer this week.

Usually I list the PS3 specific content first, but seeing as this week we're all excited about the PSP Go launch, the new Media Go store launching (replacing the PC based Media Manager application), and the first batch of minis titles hitting the store, the PSP content list will take the headlining slot today.

The minis range of titles launches with games such as Tetris, Fieldrunners, Pinball Fantasies and Hero of Sparta available (amongst others), and these bitesize games (all under 100MB) come in under the £4/€5 mark and offer a lot of value for their size!

We also have brand new PSP games released such as Gran Turismo, MotorStorm Arctic Edge, PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe, and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny (with our favourite God of War Kratos featuring as a playable character) and also available from Friday morning we'll have FIFA 10 and Beaterator.

The games for PSP don't stop there though, with a host of legacy titles hitting the store featuring such titles as Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City...
 

European PlayStation Store Update for September 24, 2009

238w ago - Here is the European PSN update, courtesy of Mike Kebby from the SCEE PlayStation Store Team:

Howdy all, another week, another dollop of content for you all

I know it's a tough act to follow last week's offering, but I think we've done a good job of carrying on the momentum - but I leave it to you to see what you think.

Heavy Weapon joins the PSN game list on the store, we have three demos for you this week, starting with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, then a slice of Lost Planet 2 (with those extra bits to play for us PS3 owners) and if you didn't check out The Punisher: No Mercy when it was released a while back, we also have a demo for that title now available too.

The standout bit of content this week for me (and that's because I am a self-confessed fanboy) is the Broken Steel pack for Fallout 3, but we also have more challenges for Batman: Arkham Asylum, and extra content for UFC Unleashed 2009, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, Madden NFL 10, Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Speaking of Guitar Hero we also have some special offers on a selection of tracks for this week only, and there are more details on this in the content list below.

For our PSP users you can test your rallying skills with Colin McRae DiRT 2, play with your food in Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs...
 

Yakuza 3 for PlayStation 3 is Coming to US and European Markets

400°
239w ago - Some Yakuza 3 PlayStation 3 (Japanese) videos surfaced last year, and now it appears as though Yakuza 3 will be heading to the west.

According to 1UP (linked above), Sega is currently working on localizing the title for a western release. Sega doesn't confirm this announcement, but it gives fans a reason to hope it does happen.

To quote: "According to sources close to the project, Yakuza 3 is currently being localized for release in the U.S. and European markets."

With the Tokyo Game Show happening later this week, the chances of an announcement there are very strong. Since the first two games had abysmal sales in the US, hopefully, PS3 owners will actually buy Yakuza 3.

Let's hope Sega makes a formal announcement in the very near future.

Sony to Launch Huge European PlayStation 3 Marketing Campaign

50°
243w ago - Sony is set to launch an £82m pan-European marketing campaign for the PlayStation 3, firing the first advertising salvo against rivals Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox as consumers start to think about presents for Christmas 2009.

The TV element of the campaign, which has been developed by the TBWA agency, marks a departure from Sony's traditional tactic of often esoteric and dark commercials.

To quote: The new set of TV ads, the first of which launch in the UK tonight, focus on the simpler aim of describing the range of services available on the PS3. These include online gaming and Blu-ray movies, downloading TV and film content and being able to watch the BBC iPlayer.

"Two years after launch, PlayStation 3 is realising its full potential," said Alan Duncan, UK marketing director. "The console is moving beyond gaming and gaming is moving beyond discs."
