"Two weeks in a row" I hear you cry. "Two weeks in a row and the EU store gets some great content".
Keep this up SCEE and we'll let you have the puppy back. He's safe - don't worry - apart from that one hair we sent you.
Here's the full list of updates for the store:

What can I say? We have ourselves a bone fide massive EU Store update on our hands people! It's like a revelation.
Of course, much of it has been sparked off by the launch of the PlayStation Eye - and I'm not complaining in the slightest. I get my Eye of Judgement pack tomorrow so I spent a tenner on three Eye compatible titles plus the Folklore expansion. I mean really - ten pounds for three full titles and some extra folks. Value for money or what?!
Here's the full burgeoning list of updates available at the Store, which for some of the time today was clearly buckling under the pressure as it was unavailable for a couple of hours...

As per usual, the US store got an update that trumps our EU store. Here's the list of available items:
Although I'm personally not too excited at Juiced 2, I'm sure a lot of you will enjoy the demo.
Since I gave yesterday's EU store a grade, let's do it again: I give the US update a B (going in the right direction).

Sony announced PlayTV for the PS3, a twin-tuner Freeview (Digital Terrestrial Television) receiver and software bundle that allows you to turn your PS3 into a full-blown PVR, recording and playing back TV programs. PlayTV allows you to record one program whilst watching something else, and you can control it via Remote Play on your PSP too.
In addition, we heard the official announcement regarding Sky's joint venture with Sony which will bring on-demand programs and video to the PSP platform.
PlayTV launches in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, and France in 2008. Whether the Sky venture makes it's way to the PS3 is debatable - I can't see why Sky would allow their content on a PS3 that supports Freeview or vice versa.
Sony's David Reeves has said, whilst at Leipzig, that this is possible.
"The difference between 60 and 80GB is very small, we just feel that going up 20GB is not worth it," Reeves told Norwegian website Dagbladet. However, "If you go to double it, it's worth it", he added. "So maybe you'll see something a little bit later."
So whilst they didn't announce it at GC 07, there's a good chance this prediction will come true in the near future.
David Reeves went on record saying that Sony were not going to launch any further titles at GC 07 because consumers are already anticipating a heavy few months and they can't necessarily afford any more titles right now.
And yet with the PS Eye they announced three new titles exclusive titles that are supported by the device! Operation Creature Feature, Trials of Topoq and Aqua Vita are all coming along soon.
However, they didn't announce the titles we expected and seem to be leaving them until the Tokyo Game Show...
Whilst Go! Messenger is only for the PSP and it isn't by Skype, the PSP is getting a chat and messenger system that will make use of the Go! Play camera and a headset. In conjunction with BT, the PSP will become a viable VoIP solution.
I still believe the PSP will access the PS3 Friends system at some point, but it is sensible to make this interface with PlayStation Home for that functionality in the same way Phil Harrison showed use via mobile phone.
They didn't announce anything like this. This will probably be serviced by the PC web-based interface to PlayStation Home that they announced at E3.
Also didn't happen. In an interview with GameSpot, David Reeves said that any rumours about this coming along are just that - there are no announcements regarding rumble now or expected any time soon.
GC 07 was not about Home at all. Sony's strategy, it seems, is to split up announcements between E3, GC and TGS. This means that since all the Home announcements were at E3, we need to wait for any extra details - especially since they're still in beta right now.
However, we know from E3 that a PC web-based service will allow access to Home, and so therefore will allow access to your Friends via PC.
Again, because of no Home news at GC 07, we're not sure. But since Go! Messenger was launched, it's not such a leap of faith to make it connect to the Internet like Go! Cam and send your stuff up to the PS3. Certainly, Go! Messenger has connectivity to other devices such as PCs build in, so I'm calling this one a fairly accurate prediction!

"The engineers behind the Aibo are doing the PS3. We are talking about making something like the new Aibo."
"I don't know. Connection is not hard. I'm sure some engineer could do that."And that's what I really want.

Though many developers have been complaining that Sony's recently reduced pricing for the PS3 isn't enough, sales would prove otherwise for the 60Gb model. Amazon posted a 2800% increase in sales of the PS3 within a day of the price cut. Other websites and retail stores across America are seeing the same trend. Many stores in the San Francisco Bay Area around me are sold out as of the moment the price dropped. I even found a few stores with employees that say they didn't even know the price dropped until the units they had in stock suddenly were sold right in front of them within seconds!
Well for those developer-disbelievers there is another price point they are overlooking. Its the refurbished market. Hop over to Overstock.com and you can pick up on a refurbished 60Gb PS3 for around $475.
That's right! A whopping $20 less than anyone else! But hey, now it's the same price as the M$ machine that will guarantee to break within 3 years.
