36w ago - Sega Community Manager Julian Mehlfeld announced today that Jet Set Radio is tagging PSN on 9/18 (available now for PlayStation Plus members) and PS Vita on 10/16.
To quote: Jet Set Radio is returning in glorious HD on PlayStation Network and PS Vita as part of Sega's Heritage Collection!
Originally launched in the year 2000 on Dreamcast, Jet Set Radio has always been regarded as a true SEGA classic - bringing a genre-bending mix of rollerblading, stylish graffiti, and a soundtrack that people are still talking about to this day.
Set in Tokyo-to, Jet Set Radio is the name of the pirate radio station that fuels the local street gangs called 'Rudies'. The game follows a group of Rudies called The GG's, as they challenge the rival gangs for control of Tokyo-to. Powered by magnetically enhanced in-line skates, they grind, jump and tag their way while avoiding the ever present and increasingly ruthless police force.
Our goal with Jet Set Radio (and indeed all the Heritage Collection titles) has been to deliver the closest experience to the original product and, when possible, improve on it.
Wait - I know the chill you get when the word 'improve' is mentioned in the same breath as your favorite game, and I can assure you that the core of the game is completely unchanged....
36w ago - EA Sports Community Manager Romily Broad has announced that the FIFA 13 demo officially hits PlayStation Network across Europe today!
Below are the details, to quote: Good morning football fans. Rom from EA here to let you know that a free FIFA 13 demo will be available across Europe later today.
You'll be able to play as Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund, and experience EA Sports' Football Club Match Day - a new feature that we think will drive the deepest and most meaningful connection yet between a videogame and the real world of sport.
FIFA 13 and the football season will be completely connected for the world's top leagues. EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day will push real-world news ripped from the headlines around the world into FIFA 13.
In the demo, real-world drama such as injuries, suspensions, team form, and media gossip surrounding Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund will play out in-game and be reflected through in-game commentary.
Player form, displayed in detail within the team management screens, will change regularly, so if a striker is in a scoring purple patch in real life, or a keeper is leaking goals, this will be reflected in their in-game...
To celebrate this and after chatting to some of the PSN Community about it I thought it would be a good idea to get you some discounts on some classic PSOne games that I am sure you will all enjoy either at home on your PS3 or now on the move with your PS Vita.
However it is not just all PSOne games, we also have Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend on sale for the PS Vita and for you horse riding, guns blazing, cowboy fans we have all the Red Dead Redemption DLC. So get these deals before they ride off into the sunset.
These discounts will start on Wednesday 5th September once the weekly store update has happened.

38w ago - Majesco Entertainment Assistant Product Manager Pete Rosky has announced today alongside a video below that Double Dragon Neon is lighting up PSN this September!
Below are the details, to quote: After 25 years, the original beat 'em up is bringing pure over-the-top baditude to PSN. In Double Dragon Neon, Billy and Jimmy are kicking butts and taking names as they search for their girlfriend Marian (she seems to have a habit of getting kidnapped).
This time, her disappearance is at the hands of the supernatural scourge, Skullmageddon! Face off against a gaggle of goons, some familiar (Williams, Linda, and Abobo, of course!) and some that are absolutely out of this world.
DDN also features 2 player "Bro-Op", so grab a bro and bring the true power of the Double Dragon to the evil forces that have once again incurred your wrath. Don't forget to pick up songs along the way for your Mix-Tape, which holds your special powers and upgrades. There are also killer team-up moves, enemy juggling... and some secrets that I won't spoil here.
Pick up Double Dragon Neon on PSN for $9.99. Oh, and if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you'll be able to grab the game for free until January! Pretty sweet, huh?
