  • HanSolo, you shouldn’t badmouth the US Store.
    Have a look at the European store and you’ll feel spoilt rotten.

    In fact, here’s a link!

  • @Money1

    Are you a Sony rep? LMAO. “No room for improvement”. Classic.

  • Is there any chance of seeing HD video podcasts (or podcasts at all) in the PlayStation Store?

  • For those who want echochrome demo…

    Make a PSN account for Hong Kong (there is english language option) and download it from their store. The demo is in english.

  • Sony, the natives are restless, believe me. You all have done an excellent job in the wake of the format war, pricing, sku options, game offerings, etc. Even MS is looking at adopting blu-ray in earnest now http://www.n4g.com/industrynews/News-119808.aspx

    All we ask you guys is that you please take this opportunity to release something of great import onto the PSN for *all terriories. Your largesse will swell even further beyond imagination and you will have a legion full of happy patrons.

  • USA: RocketMen
    JAPAN: Echochrome
    EU: Disappointment (again)

    What are you playing at Sony?? Why treat your most successful market so badly?

  • So let me get this straight, the UK store gets a new wipeout HD trailer. The Japanese store gets an ENGLISH demo of echochrome, and the US store gets…neither???

    Can someone please explain this to me. Sony doesn’t restrict US ps3s from accessing overseas stores, and thousands of Americans download free content from those stores. So what possible reason is there -other than possible game release date differences- to not put either of those pieces of content on the US store?

    I mean seriously, this update is better than last week’s, but it’s still total crap. What the heck is going on in your PR department? Do you think not responding makes your customers happy or angry??

  • The last PS1 game that we got was Jet Moto 3 which was a few weeks ago. I am starting to see that Sony is not releasing any more PS1 games on PSN. I know that the esrb website list Castlevania Chronicles, Rayman, and Street Fighter Alpha as coming soon to PSN in the future. Why not bring these games to PSN. I would like to see a PS1 game everyweek if that was possible. Maybe the update to the playstation store in April will see big changes.

  • As long as Grace is in charge of the u.s. store, I would not hold out any hope of things getting better on a consistent basis. Its increasingly obvious she either does not listen or does not care (probably both) what the community wants.

  • More garbage content. Xbox Live crushes PSN, no questions about it.

  • @54 LOL dude my bad, no room for improvement..haha that made me laugh, must’ve been typing to fast, there is ton of room for improvement but sony seems improving, again sorry for the mistake….not a sony rep

  • i hope grace gets fired, dear grace you are doing a very bad job and instead of improving you get worse, hopefully someone with better skills gets your job

  • I signed in just to rate the post – i think it’s a great post considering it tells us what’s being released. Why are people rating it low just because developers haven’t given Sony much content for the store?

    And I also wanted to say for every 1 person on here with a baseless negative comment, there are several more of us who are satisfied with content and don’t feel the need to comment about it every week.

  • there are no excuses for the absence of ps1 games, have you seen the japanese ps1 games on the psn??
    they are doing their job, in the us, the people in charge are not doing their job properly
    colony wars, gt2, gt3, metal gear, diablo, doom, dark forces… all ps1 games that sony ( well whoever is in charge ) could put on the psn, the community has been asking for ps1 games forever, were are they?? and why arent these senior and junior managers not listening??

  • Could have been better. This was only better than last week because of the demo.

  • this is a good update. i hope next week there is a condemned 2 demo. i know they had a demo for the first one on the broken console. o well going to try rocketmen demo

  • Does anyone at Sony look at the revenue coming in from different regions? Resident Evil 1&2 have been on Japan’s top 10 download list for months now. The revenue’s there for the taking Grace. Let’s get these on our PSN.

  • Echocrome is cool!!!!

  • once again, no ps1 games…just lame updates. And once again, no news about the stuff we want, sony just keeps us in the dark like always. Seems like sony only cares about the people who havent purchased a ps3.

  • some classics like Parasite Eve, Resident Evils, Final Fantasies, MGS, and others would be real nice to buy. When will we get good PS One games? Never? I thought so…

  • A good, better but still not great update. one game for th epsp and ps3? ftw? Come on peeps. can’t we have like 2 demo’s per week and more psone games released. I know you want my money but it doesn’t seem that way to me……

    I sure hope the BLOG is going to cover next week march 14th about you know what…….

  • Please, for the love of God, give me a reason to turn on my PS3 on Thursdays for the updates. If I were in charge of this project, I would guarentee atleast one PS3 game demo, and one PS1 downloadable game EVERY WEEK! Email me if you would like a resume.

  • What’s up with the American PSN updates….

  • @ Slimer # 74

    I would petition you to get fired, you left out us PSP users. No PSP demos. shame shame.

  • Glad I’m not the only one asking for more PSOne games… *taps foot*

  • im happy with the content and i really appreciate it sony thanks for keeping the service free hope it stays like this always,thanks for the rocketman axis of evil demo,condemned wallpapers,hancock trailer,lost planet theme,even though its greatly appreciated i hope we get 1-2 ps3 game demos hopefully condemned 2 bloodshot,army of two,or turning point fall of liberty,thanks again stay up keep doing your thing playstation store update dude lol good job man there are good days there are bad days but its always free cant complain about that :) peace

  • It’s strange. Every week it’s the same thing, crappy content, no information, and no feedback from anyone.

    I at least expected that Sony would use the comment section to see what people want, but it’s like they don’t really care.

  • good content its greatly appreciated thanks for the rokcetman axis of evil demo,condemned wall papers,lost planet theme,will smiths upcoming super hero movie trailer,21 trailer hopefully next week we get at least 1-2 ps3 regular game demos condemned 2,turning point,army of two or something else if not its all good thanks for this free service keep up the good work there are good days there are bad days but its always free :) stay up peace

  • wow, sony are you fn ****** damn you people need to get your act straight, I would curse so much right now, but I cant unforunately…. What the hell is up with rockband crap, not everyone plays that crap. And 1 demo?! of some game that no one ever heard of?!, no ps1 games, no nothing to buy. You guys are losing people that want to actually buy stuff, but you cant! because the PSN store SUCKS!!!!

    This deserves NO STARS! Why bother having a PSN store? It is useless…. stop filling the PSN store with useless crap like rockband and get some decent stuff in there.

  • How to grow mushrooms…
    Keep them in the dark
    Feed them Bullsh*t

  • DMC 4 Theme, WHEN? I want a Devil May Cry 4 Theme for my PS3!!!!

  • TwoBlack4America

    Thanks for the update

  • Ill continue to play the Echochrome demo while yall are complaining about the lineup…
    And btw… the game is awesome!
    **Goes back to playing Echochrome**

  • lmao @ #82

  • Wow I just read through some of the comments on here for the first time extensively. There are some immature people here.

    I may not be happy with a lot of the updates sometimes, but constructive criticism would probably reach them a lot quicker than “Sony you ***** suck why don’t you guys ever give us anything good? No wonder so and so is winning. etc etc.”

  • Also I know my pointing out the immaturity will change nothing. Next week if the update is crappy again the same type of comments will be posted. I just had to state my opinion.

  • Every week the same lame update for Europe! I think I will delete my EU-account!

    But yeahh, there is the Hong Kong store, Japan store and of course US store and I played the Echochrome trial version from the Hong Kong store yesterday! :))
    Greetings from Europe!

  • good old times with bunch of good demos etc.

  • You people should be ashamed saying stuff like “quality over quantity” and “better than XBLA” in interviews. While XBLA is getting good games like N+ and Rez, PSN is getting garbage like Go! Sports Skydiving and Rocketmen (I know it’s on XBLA too, but at least they have plenty of good games to choose from too). If it wasn’t for the echochrome demo on the Japanese store (admittedly something good for a change), I wouldn’t have downloaded a single thing this week.

    If you people in charge of the PlayStation Store actually believe PSN is superior to XBLA, then I hope you’re fired!

  • @FilliamHMuffman | March 7th, 2008 at 12:31 am

    You should go to XBLA and stop winging ! shut up and get on with it.

  • Do you know you can actually download the GT 5 Prologue on Singapore store for SG 59.90!!! Is cheaper and it is pretty impressive experience. However i just heard US and EU version will included more routes and extras…:-(

  • This is SONY’s PS3’s year people!!! ;-D
    Erm so far nothing???
    We just have to wait really, i’ve given up asking for this and that.
    One day erm hopefully this year will get things;)

  • Now thats a PC store update! flOw, and more Ape Escape! Rock on Sony! Also the new stuff for PS3 is good too!

    Do more updates to PSN like this any nobody will complain! I love this stuff! The new theme rocks!

    BTW any news on the next PSP, and PS3 system updates? we could use some info if not now soon.

  • @FeaturePreacher

    Thank you bro!!!

  • @HanSolo #50

    If you’ve been keeping up, there was an interview recently that reported that Sony is controlling the way things are released on the store. So if you want to get mad at anyone get mad directly at the Sony higher-ups.

  • ~wow~ this sux …..you ppl are weak. RELEASE MORE/BETTER CONTENT(and then we’ll talk)

  • Not bad! Lookin’ forward to Rocketmen. Also lookin’ forward to goin’ Home ;)

  • Pun intended #100 :)
