To quote: Launching this week in PlayStation Home is the latest party venue, open to PlayStation Plus members. The ultra-exclusive PlayStation Plus Private Members Club opens its doors to PS Plus members tomorrow.
Members will be greeted in a marble foyer by a discrete doorman who will check your credentials. Inside you'll find a stylish bar area decked out in black and gold décor, while further into the space you will find discrete alcoves for socialising.
Card sharks can find several tables offering Shed, an addictive two to four player card game. With rewards to be earned, this game is sure to keep you coming back for more.
The space also offers a couple of great ways to stay updated on all the latest PS Plus news, either by reviewing a cocktail menu or watching the trailers running on the big screen.
LOOT bring us the next in their expansion bundles for the Modular Stage Set this week. The City Blocks bundle comes with all the bits you need to create your own terrifying giant-monster movie.
Meanwhile over in the V-store, you'll find two new pool tables: the Judge Dredd table, and Skull table.

Super Fruitfall is easy to learn but its super-addictive gameplay will keep you coming back for more.

Edge from Mobigame
Develop your telekinetic strength by pushing a Cube within a geometric universe. Platforms, enigmas and reflexes combine to make Edge a rich and comprehensive game.

129w ago - Update: Some new Sony Ericsson Z1 PSP PlayStation Phone videos (below) are now available courtesy of Engadget.com.
Just over a month back we saw the first pictures of the Sony Ericsson Z1 PSP PlayStation phone, and today TechBlog.gr (linked above) has revealed what appears to be the first leaked video of it in action.
To quote, roughly translated: Fell to my Sony Ericsson Z1 (menu Settings - About Phone, listed as Zeus).
Its shape resembles the Vivaz, well rounded corners and four buttons hard keys at the bottom of the screen 4 inches. The device I saw was wearing a version Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Very good sense of the touch screen, very good multi-touch and a general and uniform sykgrotimeno result, despite being a prototype. I saw a demo of Qualcomm with animated graphics that play excellent mobile phone!
It seemed to shoot some tanks while we were returning the camera around them by close-ups to make. Sony is preparing its own Application Store with Games for...
129w ago - Today Ross McGrath of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN game store updates, as follows:
It's Dead Nation - perfectly timed for a Hallowe... er... well it's out anyway and if you're not particularly fond of hordes of the undead attempting to eat your spicy brains, you can get to making those digital Christmas cards with Beat Sketcher.
Another BD title makes the leap to digital today as well - if you've been enjoying AC: Brotherhood recently you can check out where the saga began with Altair and the original Assassin's Creed.
With the minis this week we have the mobile hit, Edge and if you've been enjoying Pac-Man from last week but wish you could take it with you everywhere, we've got the slightly less feature-rich but no less awesome Pac-Man CE in minis format too.
On PSP you can boogie with MJ in MJ: The Experience (Shamone!), you can de-rez with TRON Evolution, you can subvert expectations and turn from villain to hero with Megamind: The Blue Defender or manage football with, um, Football Manager. I also urge you to try out No Heroes Allowed! since we have a demo going live this week - it's a real marmite game but I would recommend it if you like a challenge and oddball humour.
