  • is there any trophies with the pixeljunk eden demo. ?

  • I doubt they would ever let you get trophies in a demo,and @99-Ever play Ninja Gaiden? great game..worst camera ever,Siren’s is definately a step forward to that.

  • any trophies with pixeljunk eden demo ?

  • No sale on Super Puzzle Fighter II? Oh well, I’ll definitely be picking up High Velocity Bowling before this sale ends.

  • this seems like a neet update. cant you get scee to be as good as you are? i havent heard of any sale i europe…

    but most importantly, hope you listen!
    when I push the playstation-button for my sweet in-game xmb and want to watch the clock, the battery-bar for the controller is in the way! you really should move that bar!

  • The updates just get better and better!
    Awesome.

  • I just had a random thought about how Remote Play works. A buddy of mine is away from his ps3 for a while and can’t take advantage of the Pixel Junk Monster sale, which got me to think why not have the PS3’s PSN available on the PC Store. If the PSP can wake the PS3 on LAN why can’t the PC Store. Especially since there isn’t WiFi at work and I work late occasionally it’d be nice to login and make a purchase have the pc store wake my ps3 download and turn itself off and have the content waiting for me when I get home. Random thought for whomever at Sony cared to read this.

  • Q has done it again, Pixel Junk Eden is exquisite, I can’t wait for next week for the full version.

  • It’d be cool if the PC Store could give you access to the PSN store and wake your PS3 over lan and download new content for you then turn back off. You know, for those of us who have to work, or are miles away from our PS3’s without wifi access for our psp. Just a thought.

  • What happened to the God of War 3 teaser on the PS Store for PC? I could’ve sworn I saw it there the other day. Can anybody tell me what happened to it.

  • SALE!!! SALE!!!

    PAIN, Monsters, and Bowling in my shopping cart XD

  • thatsmartguywiththefro

    To Grace or someone in the know: I get back home and to my PS3 on the 31st, will the Summer 08 Game Sale still be in effect by the time I get back? Or more specifically, when exactly does this offer end?

  • nice update cant wait to play the PJ EDEN demo and buy the siren blood curse game.

  • I know it’s a different region but can’t the European store also get a sale on PSN items once in a while (never happened that I remember). Also, if Eden is getting released next week everywhere, why no European demo?

  • Has # Rocketmen: Axis of Evil been pulled as no sign of it anywhere?

  • thatsmartguywiththefro

    oh and thanks for the great update! just keep this stuff coming and always try to bring new stuff like you did with the video sevice… maybe a music service too?

    also, I heard something about EyeCreate 2, but haven’t see anything super official looking, can anyone confirm this?

  • I definitely don’t see Rocketmen on the PSN

  • Awww still no bf:bad company update :'(

    I was never considering to buy pixel junk eden. Didn’t seem that great to me. But playing it is great fun. I will flip a coin on the day it comes to buy it or not.

  • For anyone looking to purchase Rocketmen: Axis of Evil, you’ll have to purchase it from the demo’s in-game store.

  • My goodness too much to spend on this week! I might finally have to snag Poker and Bowling.

  • Does Pain support Trophies?

  • @100

    No, but the full game will support them.

  • Very good, gonna Remote Play and start the Eden demo download!

  • @121
    Not yet… it will when the Amusement Park gets released.

  • oh, btw-

    my PS3 was broke and in for repairs while the new 2.4 and 2.41 updates came out..

    when it came back all fixed it had the new firmwares on it ready to go-

    and it works great!

    once you get custom soundtracks as a mandatory included option with every game, it’ll be almost perfect!

    AND MORE MUSIC VISUALIZATIONS FOR THE PS3 PLEASE!

    the 3 we have are great, but even free Winamp has like a hundered different ones!

    We really do spend alot of time listening to music and watching the visualizations!

    thanks!

  • great update cant wait for siren and more for eden!!! :) keep going the great work.

  • The updates for the past few weeks have been outstanding! Please keep up the great work.

  • How about that movie making contest with the PSEye and EyeCreate you guys were talking about?

    They (the PSEye guys and gals) need to finally fix that EyeCreate software- it really is annoying trying to to stop motion animation as the smallest block of time alloted in snapshot mode is waaay too long and has to manually edited!

    it really needs looking at so we can make some “kewl” movies ;)

    thanks again

  • Nice!!!

    I have a question…

    Next Qore.. brings signature for Resistance 2 beta…
    I’m form Portugal… if I download it.. can I play?

  • Nice Update.. but i have a question

    I’m from portugal.. if i download next Qore.. with one have the singnature for Resistance 2 beta… can i play ?

  • I’m SERIOUSLY considering High Velocity Bowling. Seriously.

    Thanks for the update- massive amount of wallpapers. :D

  • Good update, no PS1 RPGs though…

    Oh well, thanx for the good content and prices :)

    BTW, when are we, the non-us Americans (like, Canada, Central America, South America) are going the get the video store ?

  • I like the sale. Siren is interesting as well.

  • I like the sale. Siren seems interesting as well.

  • Really good update.

    PixelJunk Monsters for $5??? Everyone has to get this game. Truly amazing.

  • why can’t i find e3 conference part 3 on PS Store for PC? It was there just a minute ago before you guys updated it with the Parappa the rapper crap. WTFFFFF!!!!

  • OMG!!! The greatest update known to man!!! It’s unbelievable!!! Epic!!! HUGE!!!…not…

    I just couldn’t help making fun of you guys that get overly excited for nothing spectacular…;)

    I just love how Sony continually segregates each region when concerning store content. I feel like Sony has several step children…lol

  • The Japan store has Metal Gear Solid as a downloadable title. When can we expect that for the US store?

  • Thanks for putting the file sizes. My 60 is starting to get crammed, especially with installs and stuff, so it’s nice to see sizes. Siren’s gonna have to wait, unfortunately, till I clear some HD space. So will the vids…

    BTW, I also put in a vote for more PS1 classics. Bring some of the stuff they have in Japan, like Metal Gear Solid, Xenogears, etc!

  • demos, demos demos….are people really that broke and/or cheap? anyways, sony…great update. I’ll be checking out the eden demo and seems like i’ll be downloading the parappa the rapper. I was out of town and came back to a video service, I expect great things and see stuff that interest me so i will be downloading ton of stuff this week. I’m a bit dissappointed that the original saw is not available for download but i’ll gladly download 2,3, and 4.

  • The full game of PixelJunk Eden really should have been released today. That game is great and people are ready for it now. The demo was nice to try, put out the game already :)

  • Why does everyone urge for PS1 classics? You can buy PS1 games for cheap on eBay or at your local retailer. The best part: you don’t have to waste precious HDD space.

  • the guitar hero pack is amazing :D
    the best one they have made, i got it already and i love all those songs.

  • EXPENSIVE for the psp Parappa. 10.99-12.99 is the PERFECT Price if you want to put up PSP games.

  • I’ve been paying close attention to a list of Trophy supported games on thesixthaxis.com
    It seems to be pretty well on par with what is mentioned around here, but just in case something wasn’t mentioned for this week, has any game received Trophy patch today?

    Are there any plans for a patch to any/or a number of specific games for this week?
