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.

Just so people don't miss it in the announcements: I'm the guest poster for PSN Content this week. See tanod's post here.

And...I've got the official Chubigans custom banner, so you know I'm legit. ;^)

PixelJunk is confirmed for Euro stores, as far as I know. Which is a contradiction, yeah, but it's from the horse's mouth, so to speak.

i'm really excited for pixeljunk monsters - i've planned my friday night already. me and the missus, a dozen beers and some sweet co-op tower defence action. the first one panned out in a similar way completely unexpectedly, so i have high hopes. pixel junk is fucking great

Nice work.

Anyone dl DMC?
15% here, crawling along. Figure even if it is in Japanese I can at least try it before I hit the sack as I'm up watching the Aussie Men semifinal :lol and then just download the English version tomorrow after I get home from school (or get remote play to work correctly)

I've only tried the 10 minute demo, it's a solid entry into the series based off the demo, don't like Nero's peashooter though.

The enemies only really got interesting when I got up to the Ice enemies but by then my demo time was nearly up. :(
Nice usage of his arm I can keep up a combo with it, don't quite understand the.motor thingy in the sword.

The lack of a slash down makes aiir play feel lijke ugh... DMC2, hopefully Dante does have that move.

I think the Timed aspect makes it more action driven... just my opinion.

Oh and the GRAPHICS!!!!!1111

I said air play does, or it did thanks for that.

You have 2 options, the first option is timed and it finishes about where the second option starts which leads you to the boss.

I never realised how much I suck without the double jump, I got pwned by Belias. :lol

Are people really that stoked for PJ Monsters? I've played several Tower Defence clones on PC and while diverting for a while they soon get a bit "Meh"

I'm waiting for Everyday Shooter personally. What's the damned delay eh?

umm, sunshine -- do me a favor:

R1 + Foward + /\ (in air)

There is a slash down.

The DMC4 demo has a lot of combat depth, it takes experimentation.

You can also infinitely just-rev enemies, but you didn't know that either.

Watch as games are still withheld from Europe/Australia.

Pixeljunk monsters is up now, as is Judge Dredd. Theyre certainly making some odd selections for the PS1 lineup. :/

I just bought a PSP last night and set it up with my PS3 to work remotely and everything. Is it possible to download something from the PSN network in this way?

I ask because I am leaving town for the weekend and wanted to download pixel junk monsters to play on the PSP, but I am going to the airport directly from work.

Any chance this is possible?
