Sony FirstPlay Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a video preview of Episode 2 today, which will be hitting PS3 via PSN this week.

To quote: First of all I'd like to say a massive thanks to everyone who tried Episode 1 last week, and for all the feedback we've received.

The response was overwhelmingly positive, and as we learn what all the shiny FirstPlay knobs and buttons do, it'll only get better from here.

And just to prove it, episode 002 will be up on the Store from this Thursday (15th), featuring a review of Super Street Fighter IV alongside previews of explosive racer Split/Second: Velocity and dog 'em up Dead To Rights: Retribution.

We've also got another packed set of Network Highlights - including a countdown of your best FIFA goals - and a first look at Shinji Mikami's new shooter Vanquish in our screenshot galleries.

This all comes at our regular, cheaper-than-a-posh-packet-of-biscuits price of 99p (or 8.99 for a 90-day subscription). And to make the deal even sweeter, this week we're giving away a full minis game worth 2.49. Not to bang on or anything, but that's pretty awesome.

And lastly - we'd love to hear from you guys. To tell us what you think of the latest episode, or to let us know about ace LittleBigPlanet levels, FIFA goals or Just Cause 2 videos you think we should feature, please email us at [email protected] or on Twitter at @firstplay_uk.

See the Future of PS3. First.
