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:

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.

  • I like the idea of posting the top 10 from the video store, but I’d like to see the top 10 from the game store as well for each week..

    Not including the free stuff though… that would be very cool…

    It would be even better if we could get totals for the top ten on each..

    Very cool Jeff..

    thanks!!

  • I also agree with some of the previous comments about the most played games… that would be sweet…

  • I love stats and would also like to see stats on what games are most played online. A top 10 of that would be awesome. And when the trophysystem has been here for a while, it would be interesting to see some stats on that. For example the Platinum percentage of 10 games. To be more precise, take for instance 10 popular largescale games and check out of all people that have gotten trophies for these games, how big of a percentage has unlocked the platinum trophy. I’m not good at explaining so I hope you understood.

  • @ anyone trying to update your ps3 with a bigger hard drive i did it with a Seagate momentus 160gb 5400.3 2.5 inch, notebook internal hard drive and if you do decide to change it keep in mind that you need an external hd and that the screws are too weak for a screw driver so is best that you use a needle-nose pliers for it is too easy to ruin them

  • i forgot to mention that that’s the one i have on my ps3 and that it works fine and if you still want to do the exchange without backing up your files on a external hard drive at least save your game files because you are going to need them

  • yeah lets get some more top 10 lists.

  • It’s great that you’re sharing the top downloads lists with us all.

    Is it possible to show us the amount of downloads for both the video store and the game store?

  • You should definitely post the top SingStar downloads.

  • Good stuff Jeff, excited for this next week. Pixeljunk Eden is as good as bought, as many people agree. It’s just a good game. Thanks to the guys at Q for putting out a demo, the idea confused me, but after playtesting it a bit, I’m sold!

    Also, I hope to find out sometime soon when the release of the PAIN Amusement Park is, so if you guys could give us a hint or something, would be much appreciated. Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

  • nice update

  • i liked the story told in the “proof Sony is winning” (cnbc) link

  • Hey Jeff, May you please tell us something on when the PSN cards will be coming to retailers so I can but Super Stardust and Pixel Junk off the store.

    Thank you

  • I liked the top 10 download list for the PSN video store. May be for the future you could do it for the PSN games too. I really would like to see what people are buying and what sells the best.

  • The stats are a great idea.

    Just need to get that video store into more regions than the US and I think you’ll have more interest in the video list post.

  • I’d like to see a list of the top 10 games people are playing online, much like Live does. You guys ARE trying to measure up to Live, yes?

  • @36 & 41
    You should look for a 5400 RPM. I believe it was PS3 Fanboy that tested it a long time ago when the PS3 first came out. The PS3 wont get any benefit from a 7200rpm drive aside from the extra heat which no one wants. So save the money and get a 5400 like this one

    I dont know about Gb/second for the PS3 so I’d just go with the highest you can find.

    On subject: I’d love to see stuff like this. Maybe have the Warhawk guys come in and show what maps are the most popular, how much play time the new game modes from the 1.4 update have gotten in hours, etc.

  • Yeah! I’d definitely be interested in seeing stats like these. Most downloaded gamesand and most played games would certainly be interesting stats.

    Thanks again, Jeff! :D

  • stats and numbers are always cool to read

  • o mah jeans thas gna b aweserm!!!!

  • Love the list…another thing we should have is a list of the new videos released on the PS Store…

  • What a wonderful video service!

  • Stats… anything over the weekend would be nice. Thanks

  • i have a lil off statement!
    SONY PLEASE CONVINCE CAPCOM! DONT LET WII GET THE MONSTER HUNTER 3, MH SERIES SOLD MILLIONS IN PSP AND PS2! OR IF THEY GET IT, AT LEAST TELL THEM TO PUT IT ON PS3 ALSO!

  • Sure, I’d love to see more Top 10 lists.

  • I would enjoy reading the basic stats of a top ten list. Please seperate the top video sales and rentals, list the top game(can include add-on content)sales and game titles played online.

  • one word… “Canada”

  • great stuff. I like to see what other people are buying. Top-ten lists of the top downloaded stuff from the PSN store (both all stuff and non-free stuff) and the top-ten most played games (seperate lists for all games, offline games being played on internet-enabled consoles, and online games would be appreciated.)

    Also, a couple of the links near the center of the reading list are under the wrong title:
    “Best of E3 Awards 2008 – Best Graphics – Gametrailers.com” points to http://www.pspfanboy.com/2008/07/21/confirmed-resistance-retribution-is-awesome/ and “Confirmed: Resistance Retribution is awesome – PSP Fanboy” points to http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/3455.html

  • Nice. And a few stats such as top game played, top Rock Band downloads, ect. would be cool.

    Also I wish that the Store updated on Tuesday to have downloads released on the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PLAYSTATION Store at the same time so Xbox owners won’t get this 2-day exclusive crap.

  • Hey Jeff — similar to what Major Nelson has on his official blog, can we get one of these “weekly” posts that update top 10s, such as “Top 10 Played online games, Top 10 Downloaded Rock Band songs, Top 10 trophies earned” each week? If you guys could pull that out of your tracking systems that would be awesome.

  • @78

    Canada’s not a word o.0

  • Patriotsbball5460

    Please keep doing these, you should start doing the online stats and other things like that

  • …the week’s top played games, I wanna see that list

  • I too am interested in upgrading my PS3 hard drive-

    is there any performance difference between 5400 and 7200 rpm models for the PS3?

    I suppose faster is better, right?

  • I would like to see things like a list of how many people has purchased each PSN game available, how many people is playing multiplayer PS3 and PSN titles.

    Also it could be great a “Poll feature” in the PSblog!! You could ask which PS1, PS2, PS3, PSN, and PSP games are our favorite. You can ask which features we would like to see in future firmwares and inside Home, you could ask which PS1 and PSP games we want to be available in the PS store, and stuff like that.

  • We need an update about the PSN cards

  • hi, im really happy when i get the new you guys put out the rental movie, just like a lot ask when the service will be availaible in canada and i hope movie will be in french :)keep up the good work the more i speak about ps3 to people the more they start to tell me they will buy it soon :)
    You guy start to be in people heart again :)

  • InfernalTempestX

    I rented Cloverfield in HD on the PSN Video Store, and must i say a VERY fast download, I was able to watch it while it was download about 5 minutes after the download started, without interruption from rendering. I was very disappointed with the actual movie…. Cloverfield sucked.

  • @75 PS fanboy | July 27th, 2008 at 6:18 pm

    Ahhhmen! Monster Hunter 3 would do wonders for the PS3. Not to mention, that was one of the main games I was waiting for to play on my PS3. I got both PSP versions.

  • Any news on the Video Store in Canada?
    A time frame at the lest?

  • Well….once again, US only….how about us who also paying for the PS3, buying games and download content from all over the worlds….well…i guess US is the only country in the world that is worth effort to look after…we just nobody…sorry i am just too upset about the whole things…US, US, US…how about us in PAL region? Are we not good enough???
    cheers.

    Yes, I love stats, especially on SingStar.
    I would like to see a blog at least once asking what people want to see come to SingStar.
    I know I’d have a hefty list!

  • yes the stats are very interesting PLEASE GIVE US MORE.

  • Very suprised to see 10.00 BC as #1. I would also love to see the top 10 of anything during the weekends, gives us regular posters something else to read.

    I’ve been having a weird error everytime I post a message. When I’m posting and I’m not on the last page I get an Error message but the post still goes through.

    Error 404 not found – but message still goes through, I use Opera if that helps.

  • This is the exact message I get;

    “Error 404 – File not Found

    Sorry, but the page you were looking for could not be found.”

  • anybody notice the billboards on PAIN are showing ads for movies and stuff?

    has that always been that way, or was it recent, since Sony just announced the in-game advertising campaign launched recently..

    interesting…at least they are on billboards like in real life..

  • I likes the idea of the stats.
