  • a good week overall. i cant hardly wait for the firmware update 3.0 to be released this tuesday. btw, jeff are there any hidden tidbits that could be releaved before the firmware hits?

  • Yeah likewise here. Cheers

  • I’ll be there Jeff. Please tell me you’ll have Gran Turismo for PSP running on the new PSP Go for all of us attending to try out in addition to MAG!

    Coffee and donuts? :D

    • Coffee and donuts: yes. GT PSP doesn\’t fit the theme. I believe we\’ll have some PSPgo units on the show floor, however.

  • hey jeff just wondering what ur psn id is… i wanna add u man, thanks

    oh and im stoked for 3.0 and Dirt 2, cant get enough of the demo

  • Thanks for the update Jeff.

    Is there any news if/when you guys are going to do a PSBlog podcast?

    Also do u know when were supposed to hear about that PSP good-will program for converting our UMDs to digital games?

  • We getting 3.0 this week?

  • 3.f’n 0

  • 3.0 this week! awesome! Now if only i could scrounge up enoguh money to trade in my PS3 for the Ps3 slim…

  • Hey Jeff, did you guys record a God of War III interview at Gamescom?

    There isn’t too much going around with GoW3 lately, than just few pictures from Gamescom. :'(

    Why not tell the Development team to create another in-game engine footage?

  • Speaking of GT5…sorry I can’t resist… I do believe you guys mentioned that there would be post GC09 GT related video. Whats the word on that?

  • Great week in news!

  • I can’t resist to see those new avatars upcoming with firmware update 3.0!

    Hope they’re good ones, though.

  • Hey Jeff thanks for the update! I have a question though on the status of the ps store e-mailing issue I told you about last week. Any fix yet? Btw, this problem can happen with any e-mailing service; msn/live hotmail, gmail, or yahoo. Thanks Jeff!

    • Yeah, I forwarded your comment (and about 50 others) to that team. They should be working on a diagnosis/fix.

  • Hey Jeff any word on a shadow of the collosus remake or download for the ps3 that game was to good to be limited to just one console also I’m really looking forward to the update trophies are my life helping me rubbing it in peoples face is the greatest thing that Sony could have ever done thanks Sony

  • @ jeff,

    sorry, this may have been posted in the preview of the upcoming playstation ads post.. but when are they supposed to start airing?

  • @ jeff again.. lol

    btw, have you guys come up with a fix yet for the roll over problem with the vidler videos? i still have that stupid problem.

    * im using the most current version of Firefox

    • Well, the problem is with Ad Blocker. We put in some extra lines of code on the embed that *should* fix it for most people, but that\’s where the incompatibility lies.

  • good week! I Finally played Uncharted 2, GoW3, and Ratchet and Clank! I went to FanExpo in Toronto and all the demos there were AMAZING! (I even got some swag too :p). it was a shame that you guys weren’t there though. I even saw some new ps3s, but no pspgo. it was amazing! now i REALLY cant wait for Uncharted 2.

  • PS3 Slim Uses Half of the Power of Fat PS3

    Does that mean it uses a smaller power brick?

  • I’d like to see more news on the weekend, news like Playstation Home or About the Motion Controller cause the Playstation Recap and the Playstation around the web what we read as being the only thing on the blog on the weekend is lame and boring. I’d like to see more news about games and coming soon programs for the PS3 on the weekend

  • Thanks Jeff for the quick feedback; I very much appreciate it! :)

  • @16 It seems the problem lies with AdBlock Plus I just disabled it for the PSBlog page only and now the videos work fine.

  • hey Professor PS!

    You and ‘Govna’ PS should be together in a PS Nation podcast episode some time..

    It would be awesome! xD

  • YLOD

    ha ha ha ha ha

  • Hey Jeff, will NIS America be on the Blog again soon to talk about the recently released Mana Khemia 2 for PS2 as well as the upcoming Disgaea 2 for PSP and Sakura Wars V for PS2?

    Also, can you get Aksys Games on the Blog to talk about Battle Fantasia and Agarest: Generations of War for PSN?

  • hey jeff
    looking forward to the pspgo
    but rock band LITE? just 5 tracks…

    I know Sony can do better bundles
    maybe FTB3?

  • Hey, Jeff please bring someone from Kojima Productions to the blog… can’t wait to hear more about MGS:Peace Walker

  • Hey Jeff I just relized ILOVEPLASTATION3 forgot to give you this link everyone in the list has this problem. About 60 people.

  • Jeff, do you remember the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift photo competition that was posted here on the blog back in mid-march? Well, I was ‘fortunate’ to be one of the twenty North American winners. Evolution Studios stated that “Winners will be notified via email within 28 days of the competition Closing Date and must respond within 28 days of receiving the notification to claim their prize.” Well the winners were announced May 18, and still nobody has been contacted or received their prize(s). Can you help do something about this? I’ve been posting on their forums, but this has done virtually nothing. I’ve tried to be patient with this competition, but with over 3 months of no contact or prizes, it’s hard to be patient or ever respect the developers anymore.

    Also, what’s with the new PS3 game boxes? They’re SO ugly!

  • good week thnx jeff

  • @ Jeff
    Thanks for the reply.
    Couple weeks… sounds like TGS to me. You guys going to be there?

  • Jeff,
    Thanks for the reply.

  • Woops double post… how did that happen.????

  • regarding 3.0, I think it should release with a few new avatars. Eric Lempel said in a interview, that new avatars wont hit with 3.0 but at a later date.

    This news come as disappointing. Theres people out there that are most looking forward to the new avatars out of anything else on 3.0 (which shows the sad state of the current poor selection) that will be dissapointed come tuesday.

    You got a lot of criticism for releasing the trophy patch with only one game supporting it at launch. The same thing will happen after announcing 3.0 has new themes and avatars that wont come till October.

  • Hey Jeff when are you guys comin to New York City? We like conventions too :)

  • Jeff! You’re friends list is full. I submit that Sony should allow a provision which allows unlimited entries of the friends list for employees. :) I’d like to creep on what you’re playing these days…

  • Jeff is there a anolog stick on the wand

    and will there ever be x game chat?

    btw 3.0 looks cool

  • @bball230
    Just hover over the player and click the little “block” tab that pops up. Towards the top change “blocking filter” to “exception rule”, and you will never have to worry about this anymore

    I suggest recommending this method to people who continue to post about the player flickering for them.

  • With the current evolution of the PSN… I hope we will soon be able to use the Digital Vouchers that come with Blu-Ray movie to redeem them into MediaGo so we are able to watch them in our PSPs

  • due to some poor decisions by my friends, I have no people on my friends list that can be classified as gamers. If anyone would like another friend please add me :)

    PSN: Kren420

  • @39-add me I’m the one who wrote pax sucks above you,lol


  • Will in Firmware 3.00
    .gif image work like actually move and animate instead of just standing till

  • Its good to see that PlayStation reads the stories I do in the media.

    I have an email issue and I was told you may be able to help. The problem is that, I used to receive emails from Playstation such as the weekly newsletter and beta invitations, but now for a few months I haven’t received anything. The problem actually started after changing my email address. My old email addresses account was deleted so I had to change my email address on my PSN and PSU account to my new email addresses. I have ensured that I did change my email address correctly (spelling ect.) and I have also ensured that Playstation messages are not being filtered as junk, however I still do not receive the emails. The email service provider for my PSN account is Gmail and the email service provider for my PSU account is Rogers (My ISP). Can you (or somebody else) help me solve this problem? I already contacted support via email and phone but both were no help to me. I also want to subscribe to Qore but I am afraid too because I might miss an important email regarding Qore benefits.


  • Hi Jeff Rubenstein

    I second the request for Aksys and NIS America to come on the blog to post about their latest playstation games. It’s always great to hear from Nao


  • hey jeff how you doing good? anyway how is it going will we see cross game chat with 3.0 or any future update in the next 3.0 or next 3 months?

  • i’ll be up there on saturday, got any cool events going on?

  • Can’t wait for Katamari Forever! :)

    Any idea if Soul Calibur: BD is going to be available digitally on the PSN? I really want to get it, but I’m hooked on digital d/l PSP titles, so I doubt I’ll pick up the UMD. I imagine a high-profile PSP title like this will be on the network considering the PSP Go is coming soon, but a little confirmation on its downloadable status would be nice… :) Thanks.

  • Awesome. I especially love the “Top 25 Reasons to Stick With Sony – PlayStation LifeStyle” link. I dont consider myself a fanboy, but that list of “top 25 reasons to ditch sony” was pretty lame.

  • @ pscoolman (and Jeff- 20)

    Do you honestly think that by being in the entertainment business Jeff (and the rest of PSBlog) isn’t entitled to a five-day work-week like everyone else? Don’t be so self-centered. Honestly, I’d find it hilarious if on Thursday they made a post saying “Pscoolman, in his infinite wisdom, has insisted that we work on weekends, so we’ve taken those pesky Store Updates and shoved them back to a time that works better for him: Saturdays! Let the lynching begin!” I think I’d actually pay to see that. XD
