Thanks to Goldrusher for the custom banner and help on the lists.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

-Japanese content is up now.
-Europe content is up now.
-North America content is up now.

-The PS Store is rumored to have a revamp coming on April 15th.
-Last week, somebody told me about a random blog they had found that copy/pasted without credit the entire OP from last week, including the formatting and the part where I said I still needed to list out the Japanese games. LOL
-There was a patch for Rock Band. In-game music store was added with previews and more detailed information of the tracks and the world tour mode is being adjusted so you don't get the same songs near as much.
-The Orange Box for PS3 received an online patch this week.
-Call of Duty 4 for PS3 received an online patch this week.
-Unreal Tournament 3 was updated to fix VOIP, streamline the mod system and fix a couple of bugs.

-Jonnyram on GAF has said that the Japanese Open Home beta is starting on the 24th of March. We'll find out soon whether he was correct.
-GT5 Prologue hits the European store next week on the 27th. If it's like Warhawk, it should go up at 12:01AM GMT Thursday. €39.99 (1.9GB)
-PS3 firmware 2.20 is going up in the next day or two. It includes BD Profile 2.0 and a bunch of other things. I guess they're making up for lost time with the FW updates.
-The European SingStore is getting 24 new songs tomorrow.

I am still not going to setup the JP or UK account to get the Hot Shots Golf demo...

In fact, I will just play the actual Hot Shots Golf Blu-Ray I picked up yesterday here in the US, instead of playing the demo if it comes out...

Once Rockband has an ingame store, the North American updates are going to look much more barren :lol

Where is my freaking Euro update, it used to be up by now for the past few weeks

It's common knowledge that SCEE uploads all their content using a 56k modem. With PAIN and Blast Factor: Advanced Research coming this week, it's probably taking them a bit longer to upload it to the servers. Probably going up at the previous "normal" time this week. The last few weeks may have been exceptions for some unknown reason.

What happened to the new SSHD DLC that was supposed to be coming? The one that accidentally appeared in EU when they patched the game to include in-game store a few months ago? That hasn't appeared on any release list again, has it?

I think the single player expansion was on the leaked list as down for release in Europe on 15th April (store relaunch day).
