94w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases for the coming week today, as follows:
The most talked about demo on PSN finally arrives in its full glory and with exclusive access to Mount Fuji, when SSX returns and performs a "front-side switch ollie" onto your PS3.
The unique multiplayer experience of Killzone 3, sheds the single-player campaign and arrives solo onto the PlayStation Store. PS Vita demos come in fours this week, with Touch My Katamari and Reality Fighters leading the pack. And PlayStation 2 classics brings Primal to PSN. Enjoy this week's The Drop.
SSX - Redefining the franchise, SSX pits riders against both mountain and man. Players explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team travels the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them.
From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade.

Featured New Releases
Fun. - Some Nights
In what is already one of the biggest surprises of the year, Fun. has catapulted into notoriety through a series of fortunate events, including a cover of "We Are Young" done on a recent episode of Glee and major placement in a car commercial. These events don't always lead to fame, but the electricity of the song and the whole album are undeniable.
94w 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

With the official launch of PS Vita at hand, we're augmenting last week's PS Store launch on PS Vita with another stellar update as well as some new PS3 Full Games, world class demos and one pre-order opportunity you won't want to miss.
To start, one of the biggest games of the year is coming straight to PSN, the same day it's available at retail. Mass Effect 3 will be available to download on March 6th and to celebrate, we've partnered with EA to bring you a special pre-order on the PlayStation Store.
Pre-order on the PlayStation Store now and get the M-55 Argus Assault Rifle and the Mass Effect 3 - Take Earth Back Theme.
PS Vita games are also easy to look to as the star of the show this week. Games like TALES FROM SPACE: MUTANT BLOBS ATTACK, Touch My Katamari and Plants Vs Zombies pepper the PlayStation Store with some great gaming experiences. There's even a new PS minis triple pack from Grip Games with 3 of their best hits, playable on PS Vita.
But don't miss out on the other Vita-only experiences like the AR (Augmented Reality) games Cliff Diving, Table Soccer and Fireworks. You'll also be excited to see the first wave of apps...
