  • Most exciting news was a GoW 3 demo with the compilation. Please do the same with The Last Guardian! Ico and Shawdow of the Colossus remastered with trophies and a demo for Last Guardian! It would be epic! :) Great week for PlayStation!

  • Hey Chris,

    Back in June Eric Lempel came her to the blog and promised more news ‘soon’ about a UMD to PSPgo transition service. It has now been over 3 months with no word. In the best interests of Sony and their customer service image I’d like to know, from Eric, what is going on.

    I’d really like Eric to have a blog post up by say, Wednesday, to let us know what is happening on this front before I decide to buy a PSPgo (actually cancel my preorder) or iPod Touch on Oct 1. (See…if I can’t bring my UMDs to the new hardware it really doesn’t matter what I move too)

  • I stopped following that Greatest Hero contest on Gamespot the second I saw the weak lineup they had set up. Did you SEE what Mario went up against? Meanwhile, two iconic heroes, Kratos and Cloud (which you KNEW was going to happen), are matched up in the second (or was it third) round. The thing is a joke.

    Now that you guys have proved that movement CAN be done with the new controller (thanks to Capcom and RE5), please let us know HOW. I’m seriously curious about this.

    Pretty good week overall.

  • Great news for Canadians about the coming Comic Books store on PSN. You aren’t getting it at launch.

    From the official twitter:

    Canada comics store is currently on the phase 2 launch list. Can’t give a firm date yet but we will keep you informed.


  • @ KSPRAYDAD (2)

    I hate to bring it to your attention (for a number of reasons), but it’s not going to happen. A recent announcement confirmed this, instead bringing in a “rewards program” where you can trade a UMD for three free downloadable games (or something like that). I suppose there were a few disappointments to go with the good this week.

  • Nothing new about GoW III at TGS ( the very short trailer was the same level we saw at E3 et GamesCom ).

    So disappointed, I don’t understand the lack of medias / infos.

  • Hey chris,
    will you be posting lost of TGS interviews next week? hopefully answering our questions? (more specifically, 3D Dot Hero if you got a chance)

  • @5….I know what I’ve heard elsewhere…what I want is Eric to come HERE and explain the issue…since it is HERE where he made the promises in the first place.

    Or hey…lets have John Koeller on who said THIS in June:

    “We’re in the midst of putting together a good will program. We’ll be unveiling that soon [because] we actually think there’s a significant group that will be upgrading from the 1000…In the past, we’ve seen a 20-25% trade-up factor, and I assume that’s going to be the case here. We’ve modeled that. So we’re looking at a good-will program—a short term good-will program that would continue for years afterward.”

    That THERE is a promise of an upgrade program…Oct 1 is coming soon.

  • Definitely liked the Valkyria Chronicles 2 Q&A. Can’t wait for more (Jeff, did you once again bug Namco with a Tales of Vesperia localization?)

  • @2-Sony said this week that they ran into some problems with a psp go goodwill program so its not happening.

    @5-the 3 umd transfer service is officially only for europe.sorry.

    I’m getting a psp go to but I will probably just rebuy my umd games when they come out on the store.I have midnight club 3 on umd and it just came out for download so I will probably get that.

    Also looking forward to the release date of the god of war 1&2 1 purchase

  • TGS has been underwhelming, a few interesting stuff but none of the new announced games looked that great tbh. At least Jeff should have some nice interviews for us.

  • Is Zombie Apocalypse going to be patched soon? The online doesn’t work. It freezes your PS3 every time you search for a game!!


  • An OK week.. I hope I wont have to play RE5: Alternative Version with a dualshock controller in one hand and a motion controller in the other sounds rather uncomfortable

  • Have Sony fix that LBP voucher code issue.

  • no motion controller update part 4 this week? :(

  • Ok so I agree about the last guardian compilation like god of war. collosus was my favorite game on the ps2 short of gta:San Andreas make it happen Sony. Also I need more info on how the motion controller will be used in future games all I see is people waving this thing around how can I cap a zombie in the head run away and turn around on the fly all with a motion controller I think it’s another attempt by Sony to throw out another product too early (ahem! BUZZ!!!!!!) looks like something that will eventually be used for kids and or psn games……speaking of psn games WTF is up with games like elephunk and tv game show I purchased them when the first came out and I still haven’t played a multi-player match talk about a waste of my time and money I’ll never get the online trophys!!!!

  • But I still love you Sony every waking second and every spare dollar of mine is yours :P

  • Hey has anyone noticed that Rockstar’s UMD Legacy PSP games that were added to the store on Thursday disappeared.They were Midnight Club 3, Midnight Club LA Remix, and Manhunt 2. I was going to buy MC3 too for my PSP Go since I have it and love it on my old PSP. I also tryed downloading the NBA 10 The Inside demo on my psp and it said the install failed. What the hell is going on?

  • Hey Chris,

    Is there any way you could ask the devolpement team if they could do an update for the ps3 so you can delete trohy games in `my trophies`that you have 0% in.

    Also to delete trophy games that you have some trophies in that way if you can`t get 100% in it and your a completionist.

    Please reply, thanks.

  • Hi, Jeff we have been contacting you so much lately by email and other media.
    I would like to highlight again, that the “Why So Serious Community”, a PS3 community, is organizing a Charity event.
    It’s going to be a gaming broadcast marathon of 100 hours.
    More information on:

    Thanks Jeff!

  • am i the only one who remembers that theres supposed to be a big home update?

  • @19

    Wanting to hide the fact that you can’t get a platinum doesn’t make you a completionist…a completionist would finish the game.

  • @ 21
    i’m not a completionist i just thought that it would be a cool feature and plus xbox 360 doesn’t have it. I have a ton of games that i don’t have a pltinum in it, i don’t mind it.

  • Okay guys Sony didn’t promise anything of a umd transfer plan would be coming by PSP go launch they said they know us UMD crazed people out there with UMDs be looking for something in the future and for Sony the future is not 4 and a half months or six for that matter its like a year or two. But by them saying something about it then about UMD transfer program should have calmed everybody down enough but at least they acknowledged it..just remember they have to test ideas overseas first.

  • So besides the post re-launch of the PSP hype this week for the PSP go, nothing really interesting came outta Tokyo. But I’m so excited about getting my PSPgo Thursday to even care. Good job Sony a wonderful PSP and PS3 design with an excellent game line up on both. And finally good job for crossing the PS3 abilities to the PSP. WE NEED BUILT IN CAMERA AND INSTANT MESSENGER ON THE PSP you did it for the MYLO WHY NOT FOR PSP

  • Sony, how about a recap for the fine consumers and supporters of the Playstation3 who have had their BD capabilities broken by Firmware 3.00/3.01? This seems to be affecting a growing number of people and it would be great to know what Sony is doing to fix the problem.

  • Anyone agree that TGS was kind of lame?

  • this have been a horrible week,no doubt about it .tgs came and went by and guess what nothing was revealed as new ips are concerned. the only thing they showed was a couple of trailers of games that we knew were coming out thanks to magazines like famitsu and dengeki.overall,both they keynote and media press conferences sucked big time. i guess tgs is a shadow of it former self….

    @kayspraydad good luck in getting eric lempel over here to talk as to why they lied to the fanbase about the go umd exchange or take is that it wont happen unless he gets the green light from the top brass to talk about the issue …that’s why i never trust the word of sony because they have lied so many times before that it’s not even funny anymore …just keep things in perspective,dude


    Sorry 4 posting like 3 times already. I’m waiting 4 my birthday on Monday and I’m bored. Slow weekend

  • @25 now some proof it was actually a firmware…

  • Comments from Sony at E3 were pretty clear about the so called “Good will” program. It certainly sounded like a promise to me, and many others, including media who reported on it. It’s pretty likely that someone at Sony knew that this program was in trouble, even at E3– no publishers were even hinted at that were in support of the program, and had agreed to support this UMD to DL transfer process. That right there was a red flag. In hindsight, the PR person involved should have stuck to a short and simple “we’re looking into options” and thats that. Adding in the “short -term” program for “years to come” only added to the confusion.

    Also, some further comment from Sony about fixes to the spam crowding our XMB, including the ticker and extra store icons would be much appreciated. There were plenty of unhappy customers commenting in the wake of FW 3.00. Shutting down the blog comments section, and then redirecting concerns to the discussion board could be construed by some as a lack of concern for customer feedback. Please clarify. Thanks.

  • i just paid off my Uncharted at gamestop yesterday, i cant wait till Midnight on oct 13th!!!

  • On a side question about updates. When did the movie trailers session was removed from the Store?
    I’m leaving in Brazil now, so I don’t have access to the Video Store but it was always good to be able to wach the trailers.

    Is that permanent?

  • hello when is the play station network card coming to england??

  • @29 @superstewie Check out the commends on the 3.01 firmware blog on this very site. Too many people who had working BD drives right before installing firmware 3.0 had them stop working after installing 3.0…

  • I just want my Heavenly Sword, MGS4, and Haze trophies please.

  • cant wait for uncharted2!game of the year no doubt!
