132w ago - Today MUBI Founder & CEO Efe Cakarel has announced via Sony's EU blog that MUBI is now live on PS3 in all launch territories!
To quote: For all you film lovers, when the PlayStation Store updates today our new online movie theater MUBI will be offered in its remaining launch territories: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
If you've happened to read our previous posts, you'll know by now that MUBI is a special kind of VOD service, offering a curated library of independent, international and classic films to stream directly to your TV.
We offer 7-day rentals and an all-you-can-watch monthly (30-day) subscription for our library of 400+ great films you may have already heard buzz about or may be about to discover. (We even have a free film or two available as well!)
MUBI isn't just about VOD though. Because we focus on independent cinema, great films that are more likely to have played at film festivals than at your local multiplex, we've built MUBI to be a social cinema, one of discovery and community.
We not only let you watch movies but also allow you and your friends keep track of each other's film activities, what they're watching and discussing, hating and loving.
One day Professor H, the world-renowned expert on Easter Island, received a strange letter from the capital city Hanga Roa. It was a cry for help from somebody unknown.
It said that something bad was going on the island. Without any hesitation, Professor, together with his assistant Joel and his granddaughter Ivie, rushed to the island, where many puzzles, mysteries and quests awaited them. Can you help him to reveal the greatest secret of Easter Island?

132w ago - Sony's Ross McGrath of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN game store updates today, as follows:
First of all we have a new selection of Special Offers for you to browse - check these out and see if anything tickles your fancy.
I seem to recall we had a few requests for more bullet-hell, so you'll be pleased to see the platform/BH hybrid, Crescent Pale Mist hitting the digital shelves today.
On PSP we've a few sporty titles (yes, pro-wrestling is a sport, don't you dare say otherwise) for you and after the mini drought on minis last week, we've got three new bite-size gaming chunks for you today.
But, surely the star of the show this week is Grandia - undoubtedly one of the finest RPGs of the PSone generation. I'm very pleased it's finally with us and I'll be nabbing it as the next game to play on my work commute. Based on the potential 80+ hours of gameplay nestled away in there it should last about three months of tube journeys.
There's plenty of DLC this week, including the previously delayed Stunt pack for ModNation Racers and the missing Morpheus character skin for God of War III to name but a couple of pieces. See you later!
