PlayStation 3

Sounds like a PlayStation Store treasure hunt on April 15



No games or trailers are coming to the PlayStation Store today. Sony is still preparing the revamped PlayStation Store and PS3 firmware 2.3. In addition to a fresh coat of digital paint for Sony’s online marketplace the updated firmware includes support for DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio.


The remodeled PlayStation Store will have new categories for editorial picks and demos/preview videos. Deciding which videos to download should be easier too. The new store gives users sample images of trailers.


Sony really wants PlayStation 3 owners to poke around the revised store and they have a clever campaign to spark browsing. Hidden in the PlayStation Store is an entry to a PlayStation Ticket lottery. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will award 50 random participants who find the entry page between April 15 (renewal date) and May 12 with a 3,000 yen ($29) PlayStation ticket. Sony Computer Entertainment America or Europe has yet to announce a similar promotion, but you can probably take advantage of SCEJ’s event by firing up a Japanese PlayStation account. If you win you can download some region free PsOne games from their large library of PlayStation Classics.
