131w ago - EA Mobile Senior Producer Christophe Gomez has posted up a new video today spotlighting Tetris PSN in 1080p and 5.1 with PS3-exclusive multiplayer action!
To quote: We are launching Tetris on PlayStation Network and it'll be available to download from the PSN store in very early next year.
This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes.
Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we're really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have.
I can't go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you've seen before.
A couple of weeks ago Alexi Pajitnov, the original creator of Tetris, got to try out this new PS3 version and absolutely loved it. And since we know how excited you are, we have a trailer ready to showcase just how awesome this gets.
Check it out above! This is going to be the definitive Tetris experience.
137w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has unveiled details today on the free Assassin's Creed Brotherhood PS3-exclusive DLC coming from Ubisoft.
To quote: Today, our friends at Ubisoft shared with us details of Copernicus Conspiracy, a free, PS3-exclusive download for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
This additional content revolves around Renaissance astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (see what I did there?), who will have extra assignments for Ezio, including courier, assassination and protection missions.
The missions are part of a storyline involving a conspiracy against Copernicus and his heliocentric philosophy, which was revolutionary at the time.
The Copernicus Conspiracy content will be available for free download on November 16, 2010, which happens to be the day Assassin's Creed Brotherhood launches for PlayStation 3.

We really wanted to create something that says, "thank you" for being a loyal PlayStation fan.
In its initial launch tomorrow (Oct. 28th), PlayStation Rewards will be an invitation-only beta to all eligible PlayStation Plus and Gamer Advisory Panel (GAP) members. We're kicking things off as a beta so that we can get feedback from our most loyal fans in order to make it the best possible rewards program it can be.
It's also worth noting that during the beta phase, the program will be focused on PlayStation 3 owners, but we hope to include PSP users as well not too far down the road. Oh, and one more thing: PlayStation Rewards will be free...
