European PSN releases for September 10

We've been intrigued by Firmware 3.00's new dynamic theme functionality, but have been hesitant to actually spend any money on tricking out our menu's background. Fortunately, this week's European PSN update not only delivers the LittleBigPlanet dynamic theme, but also includes a free Wipeout HD dynamic theme -- which would be perfect for us, if we lived in Europe. You lucky jerks! Europe gets everything cool first.

There's plenty of playable offerings in this week's lineup as well -- a puzzle/adventure game titled Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos, demos for Fat Princess, LittleBigPlanet, Katamari Forever and FIFA 10, the first batch of content for Guitar Hero 5, and the long overdue addition of George Takei in Pain. (Seriously.) Check out the entire list after the jump!
