A US magazine is reported to have discovered that three new Katamari games are in development for Xbox Live Arcade, Wii and PS3, and that the trio of titles will be released next year.

European gamers can now register their chosen usernames for PlayStation 3's Network service, after Sony finally launched a Euro-focused registration website in the last 24 hours.
Sony had originally stated that UK gamers would be able to register at the same time as US early-adopters, at the console's American launch date, but it's taken until now for us poor, maligned cousins across the pond to be allowed access to PS3's exclusive club. In spirit, at least.
