  • Well I know what I’m downloading First lol

  • What happened to Jet Moto 3 that was released on February 21, 2008?

  • See what I did there with the First?

  • Great update! i downloaded the theme right away :P

  • Great update since we get the home theme.

    Question: Will the beta be locked to one user and does it matter when you download it?

  • when is Playstation Home coming out?

  • nice update though

  • Excellent update! Sony has really been coming through these last few weeks!

  • No playable Demo or PSN game?


  • I’m goin bonkers for home, will download qore and gh3 tracks as well, woooooh!!!

  • Why do I keep getting a message that says I am posting messages too quickly? Is this board broken?

  • Really Nice Update. Already getting Qore. keep it up Sony. Home Beta Opportunity as well is awesome.

  • Nice big update guys already D/led my theme. Great work. Question tho. if we are picked for the beta will we be contacted thru our email?

  • :( will it ruin our chances to get into the beta if we aren’t one of the first people?

    I’ve got to work, but I will gladly fake sick if its an issue.

  • @11 no that happened to me as well it hink we were all hitting submit at the same time lol. GREAT JOB EVERYONE LOL.

  • well, too bad about no new demos, but i know i’m gonna be DLing that theme!

    Home beta here i come!

    too bad about baiting people to buy Qore with the R2 beta..that’s some sheisty marketing work there..

    thanks for the update!

  • @11
    Same here
    is there something wrong with the blog?

  • Good update, with Eden and the new trophies for Uncharted, I’m more than busy with gaming goodness right now. Glad to have the Home theme and the opportunity to get into the beta this week!

    Thanks Sony PS3 Team!

  • thatsmartguywiththefro

    Qore plus Home theme=good update! :)

  • I’m soooo happy System Of A Down got on here before Rock Band 2!
    And this was a pretty good store update!
    Yay, another Qore!

  • I find it odd that Snakeball is being considered new and the add on is being considered new as well. It’s been on the store since before the end of 07. The add-on content was there for awhile too.

    Is it because people were unable to figure out that you can purchase the game within the demo and the add-on within a game menu?

    • The full Game and the Add-On Expansion are in the \”New\” section as they are both technically new to the Store, having both previously only been available through the In-Game Store.
      Hope this clears up any confusion people may have had.

  • Some PS1 games would be most greatly appreciated. How about putting some up? Let’s start with Suikoden, Legend of Dragoon okay? then we can go from there.

  • Where is the Making of Bionic Commando Rearmed Part 3????????


  • Will download PSHome theme immediately. great update. Thanks

  • Is there a particular reason why the Theme is appearing as “Corrupted Data” under the Theme Settings?
    I sincerely hope this does not interfere with the fact that I want to apply for the Home beta…

  • Got my Home theme/beta sign up. Past that, I’m more entertained by the Vampire Rain demo from the JPN Store.

    Still having a blast with PJ Eden and Siren, though.

  • no demos :(

  • I wish everyone the best of luck!

  • hey guys do me a favor. no one download the theme but me ok ;)

    ahaha kidding great update

  • even with a lack of content this will be an update most blog members remember thanks to QORE and the HOME theme all in all im happy everytime theres an update and just waiting to see if i can find a HOME

  • Download the Home Theme for a chance to be in the Home Beta?

    Awesome…a third carrot.

    (Still haven’t tasted the first…)

  • I wish they chose people for the Home Beta based on how long they’ve had the PSN account. I’ve had mine since day one of the PS3 release.

    Hey Sony, doesn’t that count for anything!?

  • Is there any word on the US getting the Hot Shots Golf Costume packs any time soon?

  • BTW the theme is nice I like how some of the sub icons have the broken section just like the Home logo.

  • John Diamonon said there would be a 1942 demo up today. Lies!

    • Hey Strider,

      Sorry about that. I checked on our side and it looks like the demo will be up next week.

      John D

  • I got 2 questions:
    When we will know if we get in the BETA?
    The BETA is IP filtered?

  • Bah.. not much this week for those with Home access already.

    Guess I’ll give those RB tracks a look-see.

  • Is the secret Resistance site a way to get the beta? Hmmmm? :)

    2. HOME BETA

    F^CK YEAH! GO SONY!!!!!!!

  • Beta to the left, Beta to the right, Beta upwards and onwards

  • This update was only okay.

    Do I have to keep this episode of Qore on my HD in order to get the beta key when its ready? Or can I delete it and re-download it once the beta key is available? I still have the first episode of Qore on HD for the first beta key which I still haven’t gotten. I’m running out of space. Qore is killing my HDD.

  • i’m tv-less for 2 weeks imma die! wish there was a way to download the theme without my tv.

    • If you have a PSP, you can use your Remote Play to access the PlayStation Store on your PSP and download the Theme that way.
      If you don\’t have a PSP…uh…hmmm. You could always guess how many clicks it is to access the content you want…?

  • No demos? That’s kind of dissapointing:(

  • Awsome, I just want to know one thing, when does the video store update.

    • The Video Store updates periodically throughout the week.
      Latest additions to the Store are:
      – Sleepless In Seattle
      – Nip / Tuck Season 5
      – Xam\’d Episode 4
      Hope this helps!

  • I can not download Qore :( I’m in Europe but having US PSN account. Do other people have the same problem as i do? I’m an annual Qore subscriber, would be sad to lose my money after just downloading two episodes.

    Please sony let us know if you have changed the policy?

  • I bought Qore the first day. I got the first issue. When the second one appeared I had to jump through hoops to get it to download and I don’t recall what that was. Isn’t there a simple way to find it?

    On a second note, what is wrong with the site. It keeps telling em I am posting too quick. I had to use the ridiculous IE7 instead of Firefox to post.

  • thatsmartguywiththefro

    @people complaining about lack of demos
    Who needs demos when you can get betas?!?!?
    R2 Beta w/ Qore
    SOCOM Beta
    Home Beta w/Theme

  • I like the “Premiere” status annual subscribers of Qore get for the Resistance 2 beta. Glad to see it.

  • Great update!

  • The video store has been updated throughout the week. How did you not notice that?

    Thinking about getting some Nip/Tuck episodes.
