As well as a new RE5 trailer, the Japanese store also has had a trailer of Aquanaut's Holiday as well as a PSP demo of Phantasy Star Portable this week.

According to a Koei Europe press release last week the PAL store should be getting Fatal Interia EX this week as well (possibly today).

Right, The new PSN games shown off at the E3 Press Conference

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=183221

15:16:32 -

Ragdoll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic (from Media Molecule presumably). And that's that. Jack's back. PSN has "a wide library of great exclusive content".

15:16:14 -

PSN trailer reel shows us Ratchet & Clank again, Crash Commando (nothing to do with Bandicoot mind - a 2D shooter), Fat Princess (top-down shooter/slasher in colourful graphics), Pixeljunk Eden, PAIN Amusement Park, flOwer (which we're seeing tomorrow - core, gorgeous), Siren Blood Curse (out 24th July, remember)...

15:14:07 -

They have a lot more like that planned, he says. "You don't have to choose between quality and quantity - you can have both." He knocks XBL a bit by saying they're not interested in filling up the store with games no one wants to play.

15:13:44 -

You can pick stuff up with the wrench - e.g. grubs that light up caverns as a torch. We see a 2D-perspective bit as well as the majority in 3D. Brian reckons it's a great introduction to what R&C is all about. Jack looks impressed as the demo ends. It's PS3-only this summer for USD 14.99.

15:12:43 -

It's a "new concept" says Brian Allgeier from Insomniac. It's a shorter game with action, suspense, mystery and humour as per Ratchet. Graphically it looks as good as the PS3 release, of which this is a continuation. "It begins where Tools of Destruction left off." Platforming, exploration and a bit more thinking is required. Wrench head pops up and you get an energy tether to manipulate objects.

15:11:49 -

And now he's going to show us some games. "And what's an E3 press conference without a few surprises?" (Well, Nintendo's on this morning's evidence.) Here's Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest For Booty.

Yesterday's update came up pretty early. pretty sure it was like early morning but not a lot of people saw it.

But i assume the content for today will go up when the Video goes live as well.

Thanks, looks like this is going to get online in the middle of the night for me. I'll wait a bit more just to be sure.

Wipeout :(

I may buy the rachet game even though I don't have the full game. I like the cheap, great, short idea. They should make a heavenly sword with a couple levels and really broken vs play.

So we won't be getting all the E3 videos today?
