Irrasshaimase, we begin our PS Store Thursday update-a-thon with the land of the of the not so rising Yen. Japan can get its wrassle on with WWE Legends of Wrestlemania, show their patriotic side and slap you silly with that Ryu and gang LBP Sackboy or just shut the door, close the blinds and enjoy inflicting Pain to a hot Nurse or a girl mysteriously called “Muffy”. We know what we would do. Oh and a little game called Resistance 2 gets mapped and skinned (it’s far less gruesome than it sounds).
UPDATE: Three videos sneak up on your Japanese self. Killzone 2, H.A.W.X. and a showcase of PSN titles.
The Homerun returns for another week. So what is new this week we hear you ask? Well inside of Home itâ€™s all been about Xi.
On Monday, a brand new space was opened as part of the Alternate Reality Game. Alpha Zone One delivers gamers the chance to beat the clock by completing mini-arcade games within six minutes.

When news hit that Katamari Damacy would be getting a PS3 “tribute”, we decided to simply fire off a tweet about the matter.
After all, we love Katamari Damacy but there wasn’t much to report.
However, what is somewhat more newsworthy is Eurogamer’s recent article that states that, not only is Takahashi-san not involved with the HD update, there are people at Namco who are “very very angry” at him.
Prescience aside, we’re just glad to see 2.70 finally raising its murky head from the Sea of Speculation so the wild predictions about its content can stop.
Fans of chat, sorting, huge attachments and media backup should prepare for a giddy frenzy. The rest of you, and we’re thinking this is the majority, look away now. There’s nothing to see here.

MicroÃ¯ds have announced today that a new chapter in the popular point and click saga Syberia is in development for both the PS3 and PC. The new game, imaginatively titled Syberia 3, will be available in June 2010.
The salient part of the press release however is MicroÃ¯ds’ revelation that, in what we believe is a first, collaborative play between the PS3 and the PC is not only possible – it’s downright compulsory.
It has been a long time since our last PS3-related April Fools Roundup – a year to be precise!
Back then we brought your attention to a console version of World of Warcraft, motorbikes in GT5: Prologue and a $150 PS3 that has no Blu-ray drive.
