126w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Producer Oliver Smith has confirmed today that the Payday: The Heist Wolfpack DLC will be hitting PlayStation Network next week.

To quote: Attention PAYDAY crew! Wolfpack, the first PSN downloadable content for PAYDAY: The Heist, is coming to North America next Tuesday, August 7th.

We've been busy casing some new jobs for you, with Wolfpack featuring two never-before-seen epic heists - Undercover and Counterfeit.

The Undercover heist forces players to drive away the pesky police interrupting a back alley deal, while the Counterfeit heist pressures players to use silenced weapons to keep whistle-blowing civilians from escaping an underground money printing gig. If they tell the 5-0, they'll blow the whole operation!

We're also arming you with new weapons and crewmembers to ensure the job goes smoothly. These new heists require advanced skills, but award bigger payouts. Key features of the Wolfpack DLC include:

•New Weapons: Spray some lead on the move with the all-new auto handgun and assault rifle, or blow away tenacious foes with the shiny new grenade launcher. Need someone to watch your back? Release the deployable sentry gun to take out your enemies.

•The Technician: Based on the character Wolf, the technician...

126w ago - Today Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the European PSN Game Store updates below, as follows:

Autobots, roll out! Get a taster of Activision's latest Transformers game in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.

Play as Bumblebee and Vortex as you fight your way through two exciting chapters of the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game. Then take the fight online with Team Deathmatch and Conquest multiplayer modes, and get a sneak peak at the new character creator.

The much awaited Rock of Ages comes out today which will also be included in PS Plus. There's also Puddle for PS Vita that I know some folks were asking about last week.

For DLC check out those adorable Disney Princess costumes for LittleBigPlanet 2. If adorable isn't your thing, then perhaps fighting spirit is - check out extra characters for Street Fighter x Tekken. New fighters include Bryan Fury, Lei Wulong and one of my favourites, Guy.

Andy's Summer Sale also begins today which you can find by clicking right here. Titles on offer range from LA Noire to Toy Story 3, so hopefully there's something there for all.

126w ago - Sony's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team has unveiled some new PlayStation Plus updates to ring in the new month today, as follows:

From tomorrow until 5th September (that's five weeks this time) all our PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download Dead Space 2 as part of their subscription.

Special thanks go out to EA Games for their support in bringing this fantastic blend of action and survival horror to our members.

Engineer Isaac Clarke returns for the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Space. After waking from a coma in a massive space city known as The Sprawl, the lone survivor of a horrific alien infection finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare.

Not only that but he's also battling dementia, is being hunted by the government and is haunted by visions of his dead girlfriend.

And what where would we be without a massive 50% off all the associated DLC for our Game of the Month? For the next two weeks you can grab the 'Severed' expansion, and three extra special weapons and suit packs for Dead Space 2 at half price.

Simply pick up any of them you like when you go to claim your game from the Plus section on the Store. And with that, let's roll film...
