    Bryan’s Blog: The Freight Train and Intern Edition
    – Long time no talk, everyone! I know it’s been a few weeks since I served a delicious slice of Bryan’s blog pie (well, I hope you think it’s tasty), but I’ve been pretty darn busy. And I’m hardly the only one. The studio is like a freight train right now—we’ve reached our top speed and this train ain’t slowin’ down till we reach our final destination. That would be finishing Resistance 2.

    P.S. If you’re planning to attend this month’s Penny Arcade Expo (Aug. 29-31), please swing by the Sony booth and say hello. I’ll be there showing off Resistance 2, which will be playable on several kiosks.

    • ishe4rl considering you are in the military overseas you could use a vpn in the states to get on ur American store. Heck Canada, America & Mexico are pretty much one nation now thanks to the North American Union that was recently put into place, which means that I don’t understand why the video store is not available for us all here in Canamerico!I found out about the vpn idea through the forums. It might help your situation out some.

    • I know it’s off topic, but i was hoping if there is a possibility still to revert to an older firmware like 2.34, 2.41 and 2.42 have been too unstable. The system hangs on black screens far to often, during games or especially during dvd playback, I’ll eject a disc and it’ll fail to return to XMB, instead I have to constantly manually power off the system by switch, and turn it back on. This happens on a regular daily basis and only since 2.4x. It’s too unstable and i just want to go back to stable working 2.3x until 2.4x is more viable upgrade.

    • @ ishe4rl – Thats because u r not living in US. The store checks your IP address and to confirm u r not from US, and it blocks the video store.

    • You really dont appreciate all till you say the whole recap now dont ya?

      That was a lot of tasty info. Keep it coming. Hope we hear something next week new on Life with Playstation!! =/
