PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

54 9

Wow, looks like I did a lot of reading this week, bookended by Alone in the Dark PS3 stories. Looks like good things may come to those who wait, in this instance. The large amount of interesting is a sure sign that things are picking up for the holiday season – an incredible amount of games will soon be vying for our time and “wallet stuffing.” I know I’m getting excited… any links you’d like to share too? Throw them in the comments are below.

  • Any news on Home? I heard the extended beta started and there were rumors of weekly waves. Yet, last week got no invites…

    Also, will news on Life with Playstation be coming tomorrow? Thanks! :)

  • Man next month is going to be tough on my wallet.
    Is life with playstation going to be a firmware update or a download in the store?

  • Hey Jeff,

    Not a bad week. Have you got any news you know of about Darksiders: Wrath Of War or Dead Space? I’m loving the comic series of Dead Space, when is the next episode coming out?

    Also, will the levels that will be made at the Parsons school be available for us to play on LittleBigPlanet somehow? I would love to see what those guys will make.

    And how long will the Bioshock demo be, out of interest? I can’t wait for that game, it looks just beautiful.

    Bioshock – 24th Oct
    LittleBigPlanet – 29th Oct
    Resistance 2 – 4th Nov

    Three of the best games ever made out within 11 days of each other… Hot damn…

    Looking forward to the Burnout Trophy update.

    See ya


  • i just got fainted when i heard this rumor:

    “uwe boll got license to little big planet movie”

    any comments jeff :p

  • Another good week.Please! We need more info on life with PlayStation.

  • One thing I noticed, is you guys (Sony) never mentioned Ferrari Challenge. This is a PS3 exclusive (for the most part) and a game that tops GT5P. :-p

  • Do I even need to say it? Should I really bother asking? Ugh, f’ it; WIPEOUT HD?!

  • just read the ted price interview. R2 is shaping up to be one awesome game. so, when is the beta?

  • Any news on Canadian video store?

  • resistance 2 why dus uk get it so late ????? i cnt wait till 21

  • Jeff,

    Please find out as much as you can about Life with Playstation. We want a release date, as well as a reasonable explanation as to why it was delayed twice.

    I can’t stand seeing the photo of Jack Tretton on this blog. Canadians were misled with his carefully-worded announcement on the video download service, as well as his poorly judged estimate on the release of Life with Playstation. I want to make it clear how f**king lame it is to get hyped up about a service when it’s announced at one of the most official gaming conventions and yet fails to deliver. Failed twice. For two months… due to “paperwork”. Paperwork-WTF?!

    I have faith that the reasons for the delay are reasonable, and I have faith that SCEA’s decision to avoid being honest about the situation is simply based out of fear that we (the consumers) won’t understand. We will understand, and we will respect your honesty.


    • When you\’re talking about a service which incorporates a lot of information from multiple content providers – there are plenty of details to work out. Take \”paperwork\” literally. No subterfuge there, no euphemisms.

  • oh, and thanks Jeff for posting on the blog so consistently. We really appreciate :)

  • Nice wall of links ;)

    Too bad I got homework to do :(
    I’ll take a more thorough look later.

  • I’m really looking forward to Bioshock.

  • @4 Ad-Kemp

    I think its more like:

    bioshock- october 21th
    Little big planet- october 21th
    Resistance 2- November 4th

    and there way more to not forget

    Motorstorm- october 28th
    Socom- October 14th (i think)
    ans way way more

    Personally i’m looking for Prince of persia, it looks fantastic, we dont hear much about it, people dont seem to be interested in it but i am.. do you think of it?

  • i meant… what do you think of it?

  • jeff, my man.

    if you didnt read my previous post, just wanted to let you know im down for the meeting you have planned when you get to orlando. never been to hard knocks, sounds cool, downtown would be cool too. if we do decide to meet up downtown though, any bar is cool except chillers, that place is like packed sardines! im excited, bienvenidos a orlando!

    • Chillers, no way. This ain\’t a frat party. Maybe meet up for adult beverages at I-Bar afterwards.

      See you at the event – more details soon.

  • Lets hope we will see Street fighter 2 turbo this week on the PSN…
    In the book of Devil may cry 4 it says its coming in summer 2008, and summer is ending in about a week

  • Any chance in one of the future firmware updates will let you password protect your account management?

    That would be a nice feature, I think.

  • Hey again Jeff,

    If info on LwP isn’t coming tomorrow, is there still a possibility of the ps3 having another firmware update? Maybe for that screen-grabbing thing?

  • hey jeff can you clarify if home invites are weekly also an rpg on ps3=enternal sonata

  • ohh some news on Life with playstation…thanx jeff

  • WOW! Some GREAT news there!


  • Thanks Jeff.

    2008 is the year of the PS3 for sure.

    I know many of my PS3 friends are saying with the recent and upcoming new games for the PS3, they’re all going broke slowly.

    But we sure are having fun doing it !

  • C’mon Jeff, don’t be coy with me. Is coming out the 25th next week? Or are you gonna give all us wipers a big hug by releasing it this week? If it’s any longer than that, then the hardcore fanbase would like some serious effort from SONY’s part to advertise the game. We are so thankful that it’s gonna be 19.99, and thats a great price to make it accessable to the masses who’ve never owned a WipEout game before… but the problem here is informing them that WipEout exists. There are alot of youngsters who are clueless, not everyon has been playing WO since 1995. =D WipEout has what it takes to break the sales records of a PSN game, MAKE IT HAPPEN! Hell, even if it IS coming out this month.

  • As usual my favourite stories are about R2 and LBP.

    Also , good work Jeff for having so many posts in the blog each week.
    (I hope there is one about R2 in the near future)

  • Really happy about the WipEout HD news. 20 bucks is perfect. Thank you guys for putting out quality product!

  • Jeff, tell sony that releasing too many good games in one month will further destroy the US economy. Seriously have a heart :(

  • Any upcoming news on God of War 3? Or even M.A.G?
    idk im just curiouse since Kratos joined that golf game and soon LBP

  • @28
    thx i didnt see that one

    sweet, im not sure if this has been answer but trophies in WipEout HD?
    doesnt matter to me that much i just need to go get another PSN card

  • I love this blog! Jeff you work to hard man but we love your dedication!
    Glad to see uwe boll is not getting LBP I knew Sony wouldn’t do that to us since they have a studio of their own!

    “Multiple content providers” for LWP now I am excited again! I can’t wait to have the full power of Google running on the full power of the PS3 platform! Good Things! Good Things!

  • $19.99 for wipeout HD
    consumer will be very happy when it is released. Very cheap price for a very awsome game. i was expecting at least 29.99

  • Tekken 6 Blood Rebellion has just been announced for system 357 (Playstation 3) are two new characters has just been announced! How can you not know this yet?! Can’t wait for tekken 6! :D :D Tell namco to tell us whats up with the best 3d fighter and when is it coming >=DDDD

  • Is this working?

  • CRUD UH DELETE POST NUMBER 36 and 37 please ty

  • I seriously cant count correctly, i meant 37, 38 =P you pretty much read all the good stuff today. Thanks 4 the links, cant wait 4 LBP either, cya

  • @ stoffinator – yeah and that’s your opinion. you’re entitled to that I guess and you should be promoting first party exclusive titles like GT5p over third party titles everyday. it seems you also forgot that GT5p is just a taste of what is to come from the full game. enjoy your trophies though!


  • jeff, good to know that lwp is coming soon.however, i have one concern we’ll have to run the folding@home program in order to acess it? i just hope that isnt the case..

    anyways, its good to see that wipeoutHD will support throphies the only thing that you guys need to do know its to deliver all those psn cards to a blockbuster near me in the miami area :)
    i havent been able to buy a single psn game yet because i’m disabled so for that same reason i dont have a cc….but as soon as i get the $$ and the cards i will download wipeout and superstardust both are awesome games! ;)

  • Aww man my PS3 broke. Now I have to shell out 150$ – I’m only 14 man, the cost of the PS3 and all the games I bought was enough, now I have to scrounge money just so I can play everything I bought again. I’m so stressed out!

  • Still waiting for my email to play socom beta

  • jeff why do a post from developer we ps fans would like to hear from.

  • Nice reading list.
    I think I’ll give the Sackboy costume contest a wack later ;)

    It will be hard to find the time though with school and soccer now :(

  • Sweet I must of missed the Resistance 2 Q&A.

  • For me, the interessting parts concerning ps3-stuff was the LittleBigChallenges 002-004.

    The Cover-skits on flickr who was mentioned on MaxConsole are not professional, but really LOL ^^

  • When you say multiple content providers you mean more than just News and Wheather providers for LWP?

  • So if LWP is not gonna be a download…what is it gonna be? ?_? Maybe something like Folding@Home? Or maybe it’s gonna replace it? /shrug

    Anyways good job saving countless PlayStation fanboys one post at a time Jeff! We need to get you a cape or something! ^_^

  • Hi Jeff!
