Yes, the first of the PlayStation Network PLAY titles launches this week in the form of Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition. If you haven't already pre-ordered the title you can grab it from today and get the GILL character unlock as part of the package.
Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition, one of the most revered, deep, and sophisticated fighting games of all time, now takes the battle online. Fighting game fans new and old owe it to themselves to experience this mastery of 2D fighting.
Throw down with enhanced HD-filtered graphics, arcade-perfect gameplay, GGPO seamless multiplayer, YouTube replay sharing, new art, and I am assured there is no Capcom Online DRM (for those of you who were worried).
If you have pre-ordered, after the publish today you can visit the PLAY section and download a bundle of the Trial/Unlock/DLC at no cost. You should also be receiving an email in the next day or two as a reminder.
And for those of you in Italy, Capcom (after discussion with us) has taken the decision to hold back the publish of SF III for you guys, which...

With the PS3 price drop and the announcement of (even more) unique and exclusive titles only found on PS Vita, our momentum continues to deliver on all cylinders.
Speaking of momentum, The Drop this week brings Deus Ex: Human Revolution fresh off the cybernetic enhancing lab and right into your PS3.
A highly demanded and classic fan favorite arrives on PSN; with a parasitic thirst on the eve of this PSone sequel. Including a quadruple dose of demos and double-combo of minis, this week's The Drop will ale your summer woes.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - To save his life, the fundamental choice of whether or not to become augmented with cybernetics has been removed from Adam Jensen's life. Driven by the conviction of never having a choice taken from him again and using his newfound power, his need for answers will unravel the truth behind a conspiracy rooted in the foundation of the world around him as it incites a new revolution.

96w ago - Today Andy Stewart of the Playstation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN Game Store updates, as follows:
PlayStation Store (via PS3, PSP and Media Go)
The star of the update this week is of course a large selection of Gamescom related videos for all the hotly anticipated titles being shown - you'll find those in their own section as usual.
For downloadable titles this week, several retail games get the digital download treatment, including Dead Space and Far Cry - but if you're into fast-paced little numbers, you're going to adore Cubixx HD - arcade puzzle action, where the simple goal is to cut away enough of the cube to move to the next level.
This title supports split-screen local multiplayer, has loads of different game modes and looks simply fantastic - if you're a fan of the genre you should definitely give it a go and even if you're not I urge you to try the demo. Plus users get 20% off the asking price too, along with a free theme to download.
There's a also a few more minis this week, including a Fighting Fantasy adventure, a selection of DLC for LBP2, InFamous 2 and more, and a selection of themes.
