148w ago - Today Ross McGrath of SCEE's PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store updates.

To quote: We've got plenty of goodies for you this week and leading the way is Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, the sequel to the fiendishly addictive Duels of the Planeswalkers, which we've just recently made available to you all as part of your subscription through PlayStation Plus and the Welcome Back program.

If you're a full, paying Plus subscriber, you can pick this new edition up, complete with brand new decks and game modes at 20% off the very reasonable asking price of €8.99 - but if you're a 30 day Welcome Back Plus subscriber, don't fret - we do have some more free and discounted content for you guys coming 22nd June.

Other notable mentions this week are the third instalment of Back to the Future, Midnight Club LA from the mighty Rockstar, and PSP offerings from THQ and Disney. Namco Bandai bless us with a new PSone Classic in the form of Tekken, two previously Plus exclusive minis and more DLC than you can shake a rather large stick at.

Don't forget you can still get the Rockstar Pass, which nets you all the LA Noire DLC at a reduced price for a limited time, and we've got a small sale on Rock Band content for this week only.

To quote: Greetings, fellow TETRIS enthusiasts! I'm here to deliver some very cool news about our TETRIS game on PlayStation Network.

Ever dreamed of being immersed in a multi-dimensional rain of falling Tetriminos? I know I have. Well, thanks to the wonders of 3D Television (and the EA Production Team); we can all finally live the fantasy.

We just launched one of our most impressive free TETRIS updates ever. TETRIS on PSN will finally be playable in 3D. Yes, you read that right - 3D!

To experience this new option, all you have to do is launch TETRIS on your PS3 and accept the update. That's it! It's available in North America and Europe and is only 75MB.

In addition to TETRIS on PSN boasting 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080p HD graphics and six different play modes - you will now be able to play TETRIS on your snazzy 3D monitor.

We're really excited about this update and can't wait to compete in PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes, with Tetriminos in our faces!

PSN Download Manager 3.92 is Released with Web site Updates

1300°
149w ago - Hey, this weekend I got together with a group of friends and we worked very hard to deliver some big changes and to expand our work.

First of all, we've revamped the website with many more features and support for 57 languages so everyone can enjoy our content, and find what they're looking for quicker.

Then we improved are website's stability, and made some changes with the download manager to take this into account, so if we go into maintenance mode the download manager doesn't stop working.

And after the website was finished, I thought 'Why is my code so messy, can I make it faster? smoother? and smaller? yet keep the functionality?' and yes, I did exactly that and reduced the amount of code by around 100KB and it's only limitation is your computer, the code is as optimized as possible.

Here are the changes in 3.92:

1) URL Detection is now 200ms faster per file
2) New File-Type Menu for those with limited technical ability
3) Huge Code optimizations reducing the code by around 100 KB
4) Stability fixes, and modification to the advertisement in attempt to improve closing speed after clicking skip.
5) Framework for our Android Application (For activation in the next build, I expect it will be 4.00)
6) Update Notification...
