7w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced news of new hats in PS3 Multiplayer on The Last of Us alongside a game sale with details below.
To quote: Halloween is rapidly approaching in North America. We're celebrating by starting to roll out the initial batch of the multiplayer head items for The Last of Us multiplayer. First up are the Country Flag hats:
Comprising 22 items representing 22 countries, these hats are included as part of The Last of Us Season Pass. If you haven't purchased a Season Pass, it's a great deal with 75% savings over buying all the DLC individually. If you'd rather buy the hats separately, they are available for $0.99 each.
If you've missed out entirely and haven't even picked up The Last of Us yet, the North American PlayStation Store is kicking off their Sale of the Dead with deep discounts on the digital version of the full game. Visit the Sale of the Dead blog post for specifics.
Apocalypse is the first community run The Last of Us tournament ever. We're happy to lend support and provide prizing for it. Check out this fan created trailer promoting the tournament from community member and tournament organizer, Triplewreck:

18w ago - Sony PS Store and Plus Content Manager Chris Howe announced that the next PSP and PS Vita sale starts today on PlayStation Network.
To quote: It's been quite a ride so far as we have worked our way through the consoles that have made the PlayStation brand a global phenomenon.
But our story would not be complete without taking a look at our handheld platforms. The PSP revolutionized portable gaming with amazing screen, robust multimedia capabilities and connectivity with our other Sony platforms. But what we all really love are games, and the PSP produced some real classics.
Our very own God of War: Chains of Olympus tops it for me but how can we forget Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, WipEout Pure and Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.What a great library.
That brings us to our latest console, the PS Vita. Now in terms of lifespan, PS Vita is just a youngster, so what we want to know from you is what your best moments with it have been so far? This magical piece of kit is here to stay and it's only going to get better with the PS4!
Personally I love playing FIFA 13 on its crystal clear screen; it passes the time brilliantly on my journey to and from PlayStation HQ every day. I am also eagerly awaiting the release...
22w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team announced today that their PS2 Sale starts today on PlayStation Network.
To quote: Hi everyone! Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone that has shared a favourite memory from the PSone era over the last two weeks. It's great to hear after all this time that there is still such a passion for such a groundbreaking piece of hardware!
Onwards and upward though! Next, PlayStation 2. Released way back in late 2000, PlayStation 2 was the home of some of the best games ever, with all-time greats such as, Kingdom Hearts, God of War, ICO, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy X, Tekken 5, Grand Theft Auto III and many, many more.
With over 150 million units sold (and counting), PS2 is to this day still regarded as one of the finest gaming machines ever created.
PlayStation 2 was the first home console I could claim as my own. My parents were quite anti-gaming and were convinced it'd melt my brain, so I'd only really play games when I snuck to the arcades with my brothers.
However, after a lot of begging (and saving my lunch money), I was finally able to get one for my birthday. My first game was Tekken Tag Tournament. Sadly I didn't have a memory card for a while, so I'd barely experience...
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.
