  • Why can’t they just release all the song’s (rockband) at once insted of 3-4 songs a week. and lame update I want R6V2 DEMO NOW!!!!!

  • We need to know if the next PS3 system update will be out soon! BTW: whats up with the PC store getting the shaft? We had some killer releases last week and you say “These games” but all I see are two PSP videos.

  • @48 i agreed with you

  • @ 50 no one had that demo yet and the games is coming out next month demo are release about 2 weeks b4 the game is …. most of the time

  • im glad i got patapon to hold me over.

  • Wow. I know Sony can’t force developers to make demos and what not, but seriously what about localizing some of the Japanese psn games so there is a stock of psn games ready to shore up slow weeks?

    At the very least, Dark Mist should have been localized for the US and European markets by now.

  • When, ohhh when… are you going to open Mexico’s PS Store!? I want flOw, I want PAIN, I want my extras! Where are you Sony!?

  • pretty lame update :(

    oh well, take the good with the bad.

    105 days til mgs4!

  • This is awsome guys!

    Think about it, now we have more videos that we dont care about to watch!

    Sony is the best =D

    They dont even show us resistance 2, because they want to keep it the best secret in the world.

    Just one question, system update was every other month, therefore there needs to be one today.

  • @nmc76

    I have money to spend so it’s upsetting there isn’t any new games each week. Giving us a PSOne game per week should be standard fare, period. It’s lazy of SCEA to not release at least one PSOne per week for the rest of the PS3’s lifespan. No ifs, ands, or buts.

    Now, I love DLC. I’ve spent over $700 on it with my Xbox 360 and about $200 on the Wii. So far with the PS3 I’ve spent about $200 but would like to spend more. I want new PS3 downloadable games, I want PSOne games for my PSP and PS3, I want more PSP downloadable games. I understand expansions to existing games take time, like for Pixeljunk Monsters, PAIN, etc. Again, PSOne games should be a walk in the park.

    If Nintendo can release 2~3 new virtual console games per week and Microsoft can release at least 1 arcade game per week the LEAST that SCEA could do is release ONE PSOne game PER WEEK. There is no excuse for not releasing a PSOne game per week, NONE.

    I’ve spent $250 on a PSP (Launch day), $500 on a PS3, and other funds on digital content. I want more digital content. SCEA promised us a PSP store 3 years ago. We finally got one and then completely dropped the ball. Horrible update.

  • @55

    It took them about 3 months to localize Everyday shooter for us in Europe, and how much localizing was there to do in that game? Not a lot.

    Seperating the regions was a horrible idea, and just allowed certain areas to be screwed over, nothing more. the store is the embodiment of this.

  • The rating for this update says it all, 1.5 stars.

  • @48 and 52

    If Sony would release content, there wouldn’t be a need Grace to be afraid. This beside the point I’m going to make though

    If we had a person that could tell us what going on with the Playstation Store, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. However you get these crappy updates, and interviews like the John Hight one, and you think the PS Store is doing great? No its terrible, and to be honest after seeing this update that interview was terrible, because what the interviewer needed to be asking, is what is the current state of the Playstation Store, and what kind of versatility can the Playstation Store offer. Really relevant questions. John Hight says Sony doesn’t believe in Demos. Okay fair enough, I’ll give you, however if I give you that point, don’t you think its only right that I should be able to get something out of the store that I might want, be it PSOne games, or downloadable games, etc. If you’re not going to offer demos, you better be offering something as its the whole point. If you not offering anything, then whats the point of even having the Playstation Store, might as well close shop and focus on some different aspects.

  • What the hell is up with these updates? no Home, not 1 demo, not anything! and why so much rockband crap, not everyone plays that game…..

    Cant Sony see, that everyone hates these updates!! Give us better stuff!! your competition gives out better stuff and live marketplace is FREE as well!

  • I wait and wait for Thursdays and I am just let down more and more each time…

    I think Sony needs to offer us a piece of software that is able to rip our own PSone games to the PS3/PSP and add it’s little bit of protection, of course, so we can’t copy them because I am absolutely sick of waiting and I just want to be able to choose what I want to do myself since you guys can’t get it up soon enough yourself!

    Truly disappointing…

  • I just don’t understand how Japan already has hundreds of PS1 games for download and here in the U.S. we are lucky if we get even one.

  • Sony fails at the internet

  • WOW what a bad update

  • @59 Snap,

    You adopting man?! You can be my suggar Daddeh. lol

  • what the hell are u people at Sony doing, i thought you said you listend to its consumers? Wheres the new Home trailer, or the new Haze trailer, or maybe a demo or somthing, Im getting so tired of waiting for useless crap each week.>=(

  • All you guys complaining about there always being Rock Band content, speak for yourselves. Yeah, not everyone plays the game, but some of us DO. And it’s nice to see constant support for the fan base the game DOES have.

    I love this blog, but it’s annoying how so many people throw such a fit over something like this… So there wasn’t a demo this week, so what? Life goes on, there are other demos in the store right now, and I’m sure you guys have at least 1 video game you haven’t beaten that’s calling for your attention…

    I have no complaints about this update. However, I would love to see the WipEout HD trailer from GDC on the PSN. Because watching that with surround on my HD TV would be pretty sweet! That’s pretty much the only thing on my PSN wish list right now apart from the game itself… and of course Home. A WipEout theme would be awesome too!

  • I rate this update Meh/10.

    Hopefully we’ll see something better next week.

  • i said” Blogony” because it’s baloney the updates lately.
    i will get he Pain character, thats it. I’d want to see a free city map for PAIN.

  • Terrible update, seriously compared to Live, PSN is a joke.

    Come on Sony give us something worthwhile. How about some PS1 RPGs? How about any RPGs while were at it. Both the Wii and 360 are gonna get a brand new Tales of game, while the PS3 once again gets nothing. I’m tired of waiting.

  • We must be reasonable. We all knew going in that the XBOX had more games, both in production and ready for play. The XBOX had a pretty big head start. It is only natural that we are dissapointed by the amount of good content for hard core gamers on the updates, but the fact is that we have purchased a product that is in it’s infancy and really does not have a whole lot of games on the horizon. Sony Eu and Japan are ran seperatly from Sony USA, and the developers are mostly in Eurpoe that are releasing any upcoming games taht we are excited about. You need to remember what to expect from Sony for now, and trust it will be better given their track record for stuffing as much tech into our living rooms as possible. ST*U and wait……

  • Rockband doesn’t F around when it comes to DLC!

    Know what we got for an update the first few months? Videos. Thats it. Videos. Any remember the update when we only got two?

    No one tells you “Hey guys, this week’s update is gonna be spectacular, get your hopes up and expect completed demos of every game in development! 47 PSONE titles are getting posted on thursday!”

    Regardless, I agree SONY SHOULD post a higher quality and quanity of content, but the fact is, they don’t. They didn’t last week. They didn’t months ago. They didn’t last year. And they won’t anytime in the future. Get used to it.

  • I would love to see Final Fantasy hit PSN. It would make a huge ammount of gamers jump on the PS3 for sure. FF1,2,3,4 were all on the PSone If I remember right. So thats 4 hit games that need to hit the US PS3 store, and PSP store fast!

  • @70

    Just goes to show how much people pay attention. We aren’t complaining that there is RB content, we are complaining because RB content is all that is in the Store, in which like you not everyone plays, so its utterly ridiculous not to see any other content for those who don’t have RB. You’d feel the same way probably. It isn’t all about Demos. We’d want Downloadable games and PSOne games as well, however Sony isn’t coming out with this content, thus we wait faithfully every week for some good content to have fun with and week in and week out, we get nothing. Its utterly stupid to focus on one group of users. IMO is Sony goes under (Lord Forbid it happens) but if it does, it’ll be Just Desserts.

  • You guys should see the Europe/Australia/New Zealand PAL update. Two game trailers. Thats it. Thats all.

  • @73 lmao the rpg are 360 and and the wii are freaking bad i own blu dragon and i would not want it to touch my ps3.Also the rpg you should be looking at is final fantasy 13 which will be shown at E3

  • @73 lmao the rpg are 360 and and the wii are freaking bad i own blue dragon and i would not want it to touch my ps3.Also the rpg you should be looking at is final fantasy 13 which will be shown at E3

  • Nothing for me to download this week.

  • @erioc316

    You are obviously clueless. I own Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, and they are better then every RPG on the PS3 because there is no quality exclusive RPG on the PS3.

    And I am looking forward to FFXIII, it’s just too bad that it’s not going to come out till 2010.

  • I have to agree with what some other people said here. It’s like we all wait for Thursdays and get excited because we never know what’s going to come but it seems about once every 5 weeks there’s something actually cool in the store but the inbetween weeks there’s hardly anything worth notice. Ya know it’s pretty said that lots of people feel the need to create accounts to all the psn stores, just to feel like they can grab something worth their time.

  • NO GAMES FOR THE PSP!!!!?!?!
    this is madness

    i see that you have Crash Team Racing for other countries, how about for America?

    no but seriously, lets try and get CTR on PSN

  • @45 That’s what I’m talking about my dear friend….I really want to see an official DMC4 Theme from Capcom, I want to see more exciting this from the PSN, ost themes on mp3 format, maybe the option to download some screensavers for our PS3.

    Please Sony respond to our demands, show us that you can do it!!!

  • In response to the haters, I love the videos, and I hope Sony keeps it up and even increases the number of trailers available from the store. Movie trailers are great fun and when you don’t go to the movies every week, its a nice way to keep up on what’s coming out.

    Its nice to see more content for Rock Band and GH3 even though I own neither game, so I’m not going to complain about that either.

    I would however love to see some new video from Home or other upcoming games, as well as an updated browser with better performance and virtual memory support (since the browser keeps running out of memory on me).

    Mostly though I’d like to see an update to PAIN that allows saving and sharing (and maybe exporting as video) of replays. I /should/ be able to save a replay and toss it to one of my friends on the PSN to watch, but I can’t, ugh.

  • Does anyone know if Sony is planning to start releasing Rock Band content earlier? I get all excited about the tracks when they’re announced monday, then get pissed off the next day when my roommate has the option to get them on his 360. I’m American, I hate waiting.

  • @ 74

    WTH are you talking about, this isn’t about XBL vs PSN, we don’t care if XBL has more games available or in production, we haven’t seen a Downloadable games nor PSOne titles (Ones that people actually want, rather than JetMoto :|). Japan Store has the most impressive and intensive PSOne collection, yet we don’t have half of what JP PSN has, and EU PSN is getting screwed over as well. Its ridiculous, especially if you want to bring numbers into account, hailing the fact, that NA and EU have the higher numbers of PS3’s Sold opposed JP, yet we get shafted, its dumb and ridiculous. Usually I won’t rant like this, however I’m tired of being an abused PSN User, obviously Sony doesn’t feel I’m important or my money isn’t good enough.

  • Apparently Rock Band & Guitar Hero lovers are going to love this update. Everyone else…not so much

  • @Ramage

    Don’t you get it man? According to many here, we have to wait! Because it’s the right thing to do! We shouldn’t complain about the lack of content, we shouldn’t complain about the lack of downloads, we shouldn’t complain about the lack of games, we shouldn’t complain about the delays, we shouldn’t complain about the lack of information.

    What we should do is wait and wait.

  • Wow what a pathetic update where is are demos?… where is home? instead you give us trailers are you f@#!NG kidding me?.. and rockband and gutair hero song packs you no not everyone plays f@#!NG gutair queero!! and you charge one dollar for those pain characters those should be f@#!NG free what kind of Dumb F@#!K would spend money on that? the least you could do is release 1 ps1 game a week there is no excuse for that!!! how come japan gets alot of ps1 games and we dont?!?! now im serioussly thinking about getting a xbox 360 because they seem to actually care about there customers unlike you sony!!!!! i guess you don’t want are money sony ive spent thousands of dollars on your games since ps1 but fine if you keep releasing cr4p updates like this then i guess you would like me to give bill gates all my money instead?

  • There really should be a PSOne classic EVERY WEEK. Japan has like 170. Do you not want my money?

  • nice post @44
    i was hopeing that we were getting some demos but i guess not. still some nice add-on for pain two add-on back-to-back of pain.

  • @59, 62

    I absolutely agree with the lack of content, I’m not disagreeing with you guys there at all. I also have accounts for the JPN, HK and Euro stores you know. But what I was really getting at in my comment was how unreasonable those who felt that they deserved freebies because they paid $600+ for a PS3 were.

    Going back to the content however, specifically PS1 games, I think there’s GOT to be some reasonable explanation as to why certain regions like Japan and Hong Kong get way more PS1 games. From what little I know and read, perhaps it has to do with the game’s distribution rights for the USA vs how they were contracted in the other regions. A lot of how a game gets distributed, monetary payment structures I imagine have to be worked out before a game can just pop up on the store I think.

  • @Jenovah

    More PSOne games. Scream it from high atop the buildings!

  • terrible update, BO0oOo0oO Bo0 this, MAN!

  • @ 87 I hear you PSP Man, i have learned to accept that with the PS3 comes some good and some bad. If I determine that because Sony has no available downloadable content this week or next, it means that they have forgotten about us, or do not want our money i will end up just getting pissed every week. If i believe that Sony wants to make money, and is carefully positioning themselves to bring together several components to create a more immersive experience, then i can wait for the PS3 to mature. If i want to play little download games and get new content every week, with no game plan on the horizon to further our experience, and proabably need to buy an XBOX 4 to keep up with the PS3, which was engineered from Day one to be a 10 year machine that can be upgraded and improved, with an HDD and Blu Ray drive. I just think you can jump up and down and rant “I want an oompaloompa now” or relax and trust that Sony knows what they are doing.

  • @93

    Yeah, there is a legitimate reason. SCEA execs are morons:

    http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2008/02/18/playstation-exec-talks-psn-finding-the-next-will-wright/

    Some choice quotes

    ” Early on as a company we decided it’s not going to be about giant numbers and ‘Hey, come to PlayStation Network and you’ll have 5000 games, maybe three of which you actually want.’”

    “We did a demo on ‘Blast Factor’ and I’ve got 600,000 people playing that demo but I haven’t translated that into 600,000 people buying the game. … I think the demo kind of hurt it in a way and people got satiated.’”

  • I just dont get sony sometimes. There are literally thousands of PSOne games and they cant even put out at least one ps1 game per week, thats sad. While sony japan already has 100 ps1 games give or take. What is up with you guys, not everybody has or wants to play Guitar hero or rock band….so we’re left out. Also i see that sony loves the WAITING game…….everybody wants in-game xmb, still waiting…..everybody wants home beta at least, still waiting…..what about the sony games, gotta wait for that too……wait, wait, wait, wait thats all you guys do. Sony wouldn’t be getting comments like this if they would just let everybody know whats going on…or put a damn date on it.
