Thank you to Chubigans for the custom banner. One of my favorites!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

This week tanod has allowed me to post in his stead while he is away. (See his post here to that effect.) It's a workday for me, but I will check in every few hours to make updates to the top post. I will try to make sure everything is summarized by 7PM (U.S. Eastern Time).

----
Since the DMC4 demo is up now in Japan, it's probably appropriate to remind people:
JAPAN STORE HELP:
-Help on creating a Japan Store account. Alternate guide here.
----

If you guys can help with details, that would be great. As you confirm information in your respective territories, I'll try to add to the top post, with appropriate credit.

In lieu of making the thread a couple weeks ago for the UK and JPN content that went up, tanod did a comprehensive (minus DLC and trailers) list of everything that went up in the U.S. from launch up until the last update of 2007. He also included a detailed feature list of all of the PSN games, a Japanese PS1 game list and a list of all the demos available.
In case you missed it: PSN Content 2007 - "almost" Comprehensive List

-Japanese content is up now.
-Europe content is not up.
-North America content is not up.

-According to a post on Kotaku, United States PSN Cards are starting to appear in stores. However, after checking today, I have not been able to find any place online that sells them.
-According to Sony, there will be no firmware update in January. :(

THIS WEEK ON PSP:

Setting some expectations for my listing of PSP Store content. I will only post the PSP list after it gets posted on the PS blog. I'm not going to track content outside of the U.S. nor am I going to track upcoming releases. It's simply way beyond what I have time for. If somebody else wants to start keeping track of that, feel free.

The last update for the PSP store was on January 10th.
