65w ago - Today Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN updates below, as follows:
Hello again gamers! As I'm sure some of you will be busy with your new PlayStation Vitas, you may have forgotten about the usual update. No matter, I hope this serves as a good reminder to you.
The Starhawk Beta, previously a PS Plus member's exclusive, is now available for all to take part in.
Word of warning the beta is only up until March 7th so be sure to at least give it a try before you regret it, because we've all fallen into that "I'll check it later" scenario.
SSX also gets a demo heading onto the PS Store. Also of note, this too is only available for a limited time. Looks like time must be spent wisely this week. The demo includes online play and a new feature dubbed RiderNet.
With a handful of modes to check out, player's ghosts of race times and scores will be uploaded to the SSX server. RiderNet will recommend challenges as players take on their friends' ghosts or let their own ghosts chalk up wins and losses, even while they're away from their console. Some of the features to look out for include;
• JT2, a race event in the Rockies and Bulldog, a night time trick event in New Zealand
