PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

167 4

Since it seems a number of you do stop by on the weekends, we’d like to give you a bit more to read. Would you be interested in what other people are doing on the PSN; specifically, top 10 lists? For instance, here are the top 10 downloads this week from the PSN video download service:

vds0726

Let me know – we can pull more stats like these if you’re interested in, say, the top SingStar downloads of the week.

The reading list is a bit short this time out, as we spent most of the week traveling/attending E3/Comic-Con, so we’ll definitely want your link suggestions in the comments area.

The PS Blog weekly reading list (Week of 7/21)

  • surprised to see hitman on there… thought that movie bombed at the box office??? oh well. guess its worth the rental. always up for these kinda stats jeff.

    thanks,
    Lh

  • i was gonna be first but i forgot me password darn well 2nd aint bad

  • Sure, top downloads and stuff are always welcome.. :) Would be cool to have regular stats about how many new members you have each month on the PSN for example..

  • when is it coming to the uk though?

  • and if you could provide actual download numbers, ie: Hitman (Unrated) – 23,567 that would be excellent

  • More content is always great :)

  • That’s some cool stats and all but i’m still wondering when this service will come to Canada, i really want to be able to rent HD movies.

    Also is there movies that are 1080p?
    And will we be able to buy HD movies in the future?

  • Meet the Spartans is #4? I’ve lost hope in humanity.

  • 10k BC leading the way, movie was not really that good, Xam`d anime is very good. Nice job with the stats, will love to see them on weekly basis :)

  • Awesome! It would be pretty awesome if you could tell us the following every 2 weeks.

    -Most played PS3 PSN online game
    -Top downloads for the PS game store

    I think it’s pretty cool to know what everyone else is playing.

  • 10,000 BC, Hitman, and Meet the spartans in the top 10? Wow.

    Also the DRM sucks. If I delete a T.V. show I payed for, wasted my bandwith and PS3 storage on I will never be able to download it again?

    ?

  • I gotta rent Cloverfield. I never seen it.

  • @11

    Sony staff would have to correct me if I am wrong but from what I understand it says it can only be downloaded on one activated system meaning your main one and can’t be downloaded to other playstations like PSN games can. I can’t say for sure if that is correct as I never read the user agreement but if you can only download purchased material once that is horrible and I say let the video store portion crumble. I can understand not other systems as the movie industry would consider that casual piracy.

  • Xam’d is a good anime, already rented both episodes along with punisher, I love that movie. Guess I’ll rent Hitman now and check it out. will we ever be able to purchase HD movies?

  • yeah do it but also if you can include top game and number of download

  • @DarkGeneral88

    I’m not talking about sharing the videos. I’m talking about if for some reason my PS3 fails, how am I going to get my videos back? They’re not in the “Downloads List” in the video store so Sony obviously doesn’t want us downloading the videos 2 times.

  • Thanks for the stats Jeff keep’em coming!

    I agree with #10’s suggestions! :)

  • Can’t believe they listed that lame Jane Wells article. Reading that article is like asking someone who has never seen a movie before what the best action flick ever is. Just because her kid happens to have a pension for supporting the losing side.

    Anyway some interesting articles Jeff.

    oh and GIVE US BACK BC!! have to throw that in for good measure.

  • Yeah, Jeff, if possible I’d like to see the Singstar downloads!

    You guys still don’t have enough Radiohead on there! :p

    I love me some Singstar. I’ve lost count of how much I’ve spent on it!

  • hey this week is gonna be awesome ………by the way I’m useing my iPhone to post this ……..

    @jeff I heard a rumor that soon there will be a way that you could link your iPhone to your PSN account just wanted to know if this was true

  • Of course we would like that. Especially something like the most played games on the PSN, but let’s say the top 20 and not only the top 10 like major nelson does for xbox live.

    I have been looking forward to you making this lists for a long time. Good job Sony.

  • Thanks for the stats Jeff.

    2 quick question:
    Does Grace Chen ever read the comments when she posts the store update?

    Do you know if we will see any more classic games for the PSP/PS3? (i.e. Rainbow Six, MGS)

  • When is the video store coming to Canada? Will Canada even be getting it?

  • Family Guy should be number 1! :D
    Does the video store update every Thursday like the game one? I think that’s true but I’m not %100 on it.

  • Damn, I mean 100%.
    I hate when I do that… :(

  • I’m definitely interested in stats like these, please keep ’em coming!

  • I like stats 0_o :]

  • Can you have a list where it shows about how many PSN games have been sold thus far for each game?

  • I can say I work at TripleTags.com and after you guys gave my boss a link like that he has not shut up about it, like his ego wasn’t big enough already ;)

    But Serious I have to Thank Jeff who runs this blog a lot for that and say Thank you to him.

  • I would like to see some PSN game sales numbers. Thanks for the post Jeff! :)

  • Defintely put the top information up for lots of stuff. Top downloaded games, movies. Top played games online would also be sweet.

    Also, what ever happened to part 2 for the PJMs couples post?

  • Heavy rain? It guess its getting a huge blow out at Leipzig.

    What part of SCE is working on HOME. From my impressions of Kaz and jack they dont expect HOME to hit this year. The longer it takes the less excited people are going to be about it. I wish Phil was still here. He was a true gamer and i salute his vision of GAME. 3.0.

  • I think that if your going to show stats you should use LBP to do it. I mean once you see stats shown with LBP you can’t go back.

    With that said I think its nice to see posts on the weekend.

    p.s. you should consider showing things like percentage increases in sales with price drops of different games/movies.

  • Sweet, I am looking into getting Xam’d. It looks good. But from a glance, it looked like I could only rent it. I wanna buy it and rewatch it. :(

  • I’d like to see top SingStar downloads please. :D

  • I Like to see how many downloads it was per TOP DOWNLOAD…. example 100,000 downloads!

    PLUS off subject…

  • We can we expect the Canadian video store to go live? August? September? By the end of the year?

  • I’m absolutely interested in any stats you guys can pull. Keep them coming!

  • Is Xam’d only available for purchase? All I see is a buy now option.

  • @36
    i completly agree with u plus im in the same situation with my HDD, i have a 60 gig and have a few gigs left and i really want a new harddrive before thursdays store update so i cann purchase pain, and pixel junk monsters.Jeff do you think you can do a special blog post tomorrow on what brands are compatible etc?

  • Yes please do add more stats… i love looking at stats

  • Wait, that’s geat Sony.

  • It would certainly be nice if you can provide more top 10 lists like this one Jeff. Keep them coming.

  • Hitman was a really good movie for those sceptikal out there, well i liked it a lot

    I too would like to know about the video store in Canada. Thanks

  • Im interested in knowing when on a video store for canada.

    I like these stats keep them coming.

  • hey Jeff how about top 10 games i would love that, by the way nice comic con coverage.

  • I already got the R2 issue of GamePro :)

    And now I play the waiting game…

  • Yes! :) I want to know which are the most played games online! Im guessing its between COD4 and GTA4 and MGO but its actually interesting to find out what other people play.

  • i feel sorry for each and every person who saw 10000 BC. sooo bad. soooo sooo so bad.
