Tanod.. Why is the GTA Banner in Dutch? Something you ain't telling us? :lol

Oh, and looking forward to this weeks banner. Euro update is pretty meh, again, but at least they did something right this week: Editors - Smokers Outside the Hospital Door on SingStar. :D

LOST PLANET demo is a great way to see Japanese Lost Planet enthusiasts owning your ass online.

That's it.

BTW: What the hell is Home Beta Trial supposed to be? Is it like they're going to offer a limited version of the beta in a trial mode... Meh.

Actually, the one time I played online with the 'broken' US demo I turned out to be the number one. Me, a Dutch guy who hardly played Lost Planet. Against Americans and Japanese who were supposed to be a lot better than me. :D

And, there are some people who have acces to the Home beta already. I remember that at one day, it was right there in my PS Store. Just like that. Of course, things happened prior to that. And now I'm jealous of tanod (if this is a picture of his own system) for the LBP beta.

I was expecting some cool stuff for PS3 this week from GDC but it's looking like a major dud.... :(

US Store hasn't been updated yet, so I guess we can expect something there. Besides, GDC is on US soil, so who knows.

FirewalkR said:
It isn't. Unfortunately i guess.

Well, the image has Dutch advertising, and the link provided by Krypt0nian suggests that the beta has started. And, seeing I'm in the Home beta (I was just a little too late for the Warhawk one), I believe it would be strange if I wasn't in, if it is real. So I guess you could say this is fake.

Singstar had a 12MB update yesterday. I'm not sure what it did yet. There was also a Singstore update:

Aha - Take on Me
All Saints - Never Ever
Beth Orton - She Cries Your Name (who? lol)
Editors - Smokers outside the hospital doors
En Vogue - Free Your Mind
The Monkees - Daydream Believer
Robbie Williams - Let me Entertain You
Run DMC - Its Tricky
Sister Sledge - We Are Family
Take That - Relight my Fire

And I think there was a new Singstar Wallpaper on the Singstore, too.

I downloaded A-Ha and Robbie :p

Hey, you got your ES last week. :p But yeah, there's basically nothing worthwhile for the EU store until March 6th. (fl0w expansion next week though, sorta cool)

Actually, the update for both the game and the Store already happened two days ago.

PS: Beta_Boy from the Euro beta trial thingy confirmed the LBP beta image is a fake. Hopefully this dies down fast.

The update does the following:

- Singer selection names for duet songs has been fixed
- Occasional issue with note display drawing corrected
- Occasional problem with 1st golden note of a song not appearing has been fixed
- The news panel seen in the online section when you're not connected has been updated

There were also a pile of German and Spanish songs added to the Store as well as the English ones.

Please, tell me there is more coming to North America. That is a depressing amount of content and considering I don't own Rock Band, it is even more depressing.

Is it me, or is Super Stardust HD nowhere to be found on the Japanese PSN? Sure I can re-download it at will, but I'd really like to have the update all the other regions got...

i want dark mist so bad

Grab a JP PSN store card off ebay and buy it naow! I had a few hundred yen left over from my last JP store PSX splooge and decided to take a chance on Dark Mist as I was sick of waiting for it - thankfully theres minimal ammount of moon language and it's a really great game, very challenging and addictive.

I read that and I have seen weeks where all we get is a wallpaper, a movie trailer, and some Rock Band DLC. This week, I fully expect a firmware update that enables cross-game invites and chat. (I hope)

That session at GDC about Home happens at 12-1 PST, which is a few hours before the store usually gets updated. I still have hope that in-game XMB and Home will be released today! BELIEVE.

Yeah, I know I'm setting myself up for disappointment. :(

Snakeball finally up? Tried the demo when it came out ages ago but wasn't exactly impressed. Dark Mist is the next biggie for me now.

Quite, this is why I always make a habit of posting my XBLA News in the big thread as well as in the spin-off thread, just in case somebody misses one or the other.

Speaking of which, a whole bunch of Bionic Commando Rearmed just got a whole bunch of video coverage, helpfully indexed by friend Rlan.
