    Don’t you mean 1.34 GB ?

  • Cool cool cool good stuff! ^_^

  • no demos?

  • No LBP costume? Europe and Japan gets the Japanese Competition Winner and we don’t? What is going on?

  • Nice update
    Thanks Grace

  • Oh my god.

    Actual PSP content!

    Instant 5/5 from me.

  • Thank you. AMAZING update for PSP. I will be looking forward to dling ES, SSP, and Mercury.

    May be time for me to upgrade from my 1GB to an 8GB :P

  • Pretty decent PFP love this week. Go us!

  • Sorry, meant PSP.

  • Guys, release HOME! That’s the icing on the cake for us PSN users!

  • Oh my god.

    Actual PSP content!

    Thank you! Instant 5/5 from me.

    I can finally put the Media Manager download to use!

  • Ignore my previous comment, it’s now showing the full list.

  • SONY, thanks for the update!!! Remember, we need voice messages integrated into PSN.

    I love Little Big Planet also.

  • Wow, free Qore? A podcast for free? This is an interesting concept that should take the internet by storm.

  • It kinda sucks that we don’t have the Resident Evil 5 demo…

  • No demo sucks but Qore for free sounds cool. Thanks.

  • I WAS going to say thank you for the LBP SCEJ contest winner outfit thing which is awesome but NO!

    [DELETED] seriously, no free themes in like a month. This is lame. I knew this [DELETED] was going to happen and it sucks [DELETED]. Charging for all the themes is retarded as I’m pretty sure I can go online and find a reproduced copy to install myself for FREE. Not to mention it will probably be better. [DELETED] with paid themes sony. I love my PS3 but I will not stand idly by as you try to cheat my fellow gamers out of their (assumingly) hard earned money.

    What’s next, a yearly fee for PSN?

    (I know its a bit over the top and grace doesn’t have any/much control over this pricing but still, it’s the squeaky cog that gets the oil)

  • Wow, so much PSP content, I have been waiting for a thursday like this.

  • Pretty lame in my opinion! And I 95% of the time give the PSN the benefit of the doubt!…hopefully Homes release is days away, or else we’ll have another delay listed under Sony’s belt! 2008 is supposed to be the year of Home (Open)..Sony, don’t let us down!

  • I want 1979 for GH and the SC IV stuff but that only adds up to $4. Have to wait untill next week with Nirvana to get anything in wich case it’s just as well to wait untill the week after that with The Eagles since there’s only a single I want there too or have they come to their senses and that stupid $5 minium has been removed? Guess I should check.

  • Qore 1.34mb??

  • Sweet update! off to do some downloading…

  • Finally some PSP content, so happy about that. Just wish that we also got Loco Roco 2 like the UK did. Interesting to see the price of the one Rock Band song as how earlier today, before the store was update the Rock Band store was updated and one of the songs was free, but now it’s $0.99. Bonus for me.

  • Thanks for the Update… Ill be downloading perty much everything including trailers.. but im not picking up any games this week.

  • No demos this week????

  • SEt ur ps 3 display setting to rgb:full and super white: on, in creases the quality of the visual by a lot :)

  • Where are the Home beta codes for annual subscribers? It has almost been a month since it was promised!

  • what’s up with a USC theme already? who do we have to beat to get some love/respect around here? lol.

  • Great update =D
    Although a bit of PSone classics wont hurt :P
    Can’t wait to try Soldner!

  • Incredible week for the PSP!

  • I love my PSP. It needs more love, thus, I shall download one of the PSP offerings today. Now: ES or SSP…

  • super stardust portable fo sho. buying

  • No demos….again.

  • There’s a demo in Qore people. Relax!!!

    Nothing special for me this update. I already subscribe to Qore so the whole free thing doesn’t do anything for me.

  • Why are we taxed for downloadable games? I wasn’t taxed last year for downloading Beats. Thats bullcrap, unless Sony gives me the opputunity to add ¢50 to my wallet funds instead of adding the default $5 of money I don’t have, I’II buy a game, otherwise thats BS. But still why are we taxed?

  • lol i guess no one know that home will be open to everone in 4 weeks so relax everone ok stop commenting on when home comeing out for qore members .

  • please add tekken 3 and mortal kombat trilogy
    tekken 5 and mortal 2 sold a lot on psn and make it mandertory to have custom soundtracks in all games starting 2009

  • Bought Super Stardust Portable, Every Day Shooter (PSP), and downloaded Qore. I love you guys.

  • “File size: 1.34MB”

    Wow! Must be using some bleeding-edge compression techniques!


  • can you game on psn its great add a level editor so everyone can create levels like little big planet
    and can you give it for free to me since a gave you the idea:)

  • 1.34 MB, thats rather small lol, 1.34 GB <–

  • Blast Factor update is not live yet.

  • Are the prices on the Rock Band songs permanent or only for a limited time (as some of the $.99 prices have been)?

    Also, is this a sign that future songs will be available at a reduced price (which would be AWESOME)?

  • no demos? o well. its an OK update

  • Nice update.

  • Hey Grace how come Qore dont have its own area in the PSN Store. being a Qore subscriber its annoying and can be forgetful having to have to go all the way through the download files to get the new episode of the month.
    Holla Back….

  • Hi Grace! I hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving. I’m wondering whether or not annual Qore subscribers will be getting early access to a demo for Killzone 2? This would be especially appreciated by those of us in the Killzone community that were not given access to the Killzone beta & are quite upset about being left out.

    Also, I would like to see Qore include longer in-depth developer interviews for upcoming games such as Dark Void, Red Faction Guerilla, M.A.G., and the major expansion for Unreal Tournament 3.

    Thank you, Grace.
