6w ago - Sony's Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates below, which include Sine Mora free for PS Plus Members!
To quote: Ever feel like you don't have enough time? Well, that's by design in Sine Mora, where classic shoot-em-up mechanics (or shmup, if you like saying funny words) are blended with a new twist: you're racing against the clock.
Instead of scoring points, you'll hunt down enemies to gain precious seconds and hopefully avoid the Game Over screen. PlayStation Plus members get the PS Vita version of this title for free starting tomorrow.
It's week 2 of our Sale of the Dead promotion, and that means you can save money on awesome titles like the recently released Puppeteer, the classic BioShock and the adorable Costume Quest. There's a great variety of content available - check it all out below.
You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, October 29th.

55w ago - Digital Reality Level Designer Ferenc Nagy-Szakall has invited fans to play Sine Mora: Definitive Version on PS3 and PS Vita today with a fresh trailer video below.
To quote: Sine Mora is launching on PS3 and PS Vita today, including some content that was cut from other versions of the game. Between a new challenge mode, the collaboration of a Japanese shoot'em up giant, and the special abilities of the PS Vita hardware, we truly think the wait for Sine Mora on PS3 and PS Vita was worth it - these versions are the richest we could possibly deliver.
From a technical perspective, the PS3 version was a walk in the park. Our technology has always been designed with the Cell processor in mind, enabling us to go for high framerates and image quality, uncompromised.
We're especially proud of how the PS Vita version turned out - neither the framerate nor the resolution was sacrificed, delivering the highest possible rendition of our original vision on a handheld.
Having exclusive levels is cool, but a brand new game mode is even better. We wanted to include something memorable – a game mode which is more difficult than other parts of the game on insane difficulty setting. A mode that is so tricky, even its creators couldn't master it on their first attempt. Nor the tenth....
218w ago - Rockstar Games just released the official trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the PSP, titled "Dangerous Business".
Chinatown Wars was a hit on the DS, and now all the action comes to Sony's portable system, including a host of new enhancements and additions designed just for the PlayStation Portable, the most notable of which is a massive graphical overhaul.
Those improvements come to light in the video below.
To quote from the video's caption: "Chinatown Wars was on the DS but now it has made its way to the PlayStation Portable (PSP)."
247w ago - The secretive Internet filter blacklist held by the communications watchdog ACMA has been leaked, revealing the government has understated the amount of banned Web pages by more than 1000.
Multiple legitimate businesses and Web sites have been banned including two bus companies, online poker sites, multiple Wikipedia entries, Google and Yahoo group pages, a dental surgery and a tour operator.
Betfair CEO Andrew Twaits was furious the government has potentially annexed tens of millions of dollars in revenue after its Betfair.com gambling site was blacklisted.
The blacklists were reportedly leaked by a Web filter operator to wikileaks which has published the full list of banned URLs.
Outraged privacy advocates say the government has effectively lied about the amount of URLs included in the blacklists, totalling more than 2300, and the type of content which it would ban.
Electronic Frontiers Association (EFA) spokesman Geordie Guy said the list, dated August last year, would now be far more extensive in both the amount of URLs banned and the type of content included.
"The list is quite a bit bigger than what we have been led to believe; we were told it contained about 1600 pages in its current incarnation, and ACMA reports have claimed as low...
