From experience I think you'll find that the content is relevant to the version of the game. So if you have the game on US Blu-Ray, don't expect to be able to use the DLC on that.

I had the problem with Fl0w and I know people have had similar issues with DLC for MotorStorm and NGS.

I hope we get it this week, and please Sony make it an update I don't want to delete it & re-download the game like the Europeans had to.

I wouldn't expect it to be any different. However, with this update brings the ingame store interface which would probably resolve the issue for any future updates.

Why is Capcom taking so long to bring Super Puzzle Fighter to Europe?
I really don't get it. Guess I'll go with Piyotama for my Christmas puzzle game :D

What a letdown.

Almost nothing has been announced yet. We won't really know what they'll offer till something official is released or people notice new content up in the stores.

The DMC4 final trailer is already up on the Japanese PSN. Got it just a little while ago. I've probably spoiled 90% of the game for myself already.

Probably a UT3 demo since developers have had a couple of weeks to put one toguether and it can really push sales, the game is superb

Is this just wishful thinking or has there been some actual confirmation that a UT3 demo was being created for the PS3 version?

Wishful thinking hence the "Probably"
