PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

51 6

Before we get to the links, just wanted to give a shout out to the folks that ran Extra Life again this year. Haven’t seen the final tally yet, but I know that they’re already ahead of last year’s total funds raised for pediatric cancer research and treatment. Given the economy, that’s pretty damn good. Did any of you kick in?

  • When are we going to get Dissidia on the PSN Store?

  • Uncharted 2 is the worst game ever. I regret ever buying it. I don’t know why everyone is saying it’s such an amazing game. it feels like they made it in a month. I’m selling it today.

    No I’m just kidding. Uncharted 2 is the best game of life. Single player is like an action movie, and online is sick ( i love how you can pull people of ledges or snap their neck etc.)
    Awesome job naughty dog!!

  • Heh, the Peace Walker tease sounds intriguing. Peace Walker related to Obama’s peace prize? Maybe, maybe not. Peace Walker a test for future Kojima games? Probably. Either way, I am excited for Peace Walker =D

    On a side note, I take it there is nothing to report on Tales of Vesperia. =(
    If you have a list of fans who are on hands and knees pleading for this game, you can add me to that list. ^_^
    Thanks Jeff!

  • When is 3xtreme coming to the psn it was my all time favorite!

  • @ Jiff
    Thanks for the list, I always enjoy reading them and see the good news tho I got a small question.. is it possible for you or someone else in the psblog to be able to meet with Namco Bandai and let them know that we ps3 owners seriously want to see Tales of Vesperia coming to NA please.. I hope we hear something pretty soon but if u could maybe send them an email.
    Thank you and cant wait for the 27th for Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time

  • @Jeff
    Can you let Mr Lempel know that we need a means of blocking Copy and Pasted content from anyone not on our friend list or just in general? Perhaps even removing Copy and Paste entirely for anything beyond the web browser?

    I don’t like chainmail, especially BS chainmail about how sony is going to start charging for the PSN and how a magical message being passed around is supposed to be able to fix that. If I believed everything I read on PSN messages I would be a Nigerian Millionaire by now.

    Anyway FF8 on PS Store, In Game XMB for PS1/2 games, and the ability to assemble guns from R&C in the next firmware update please ^^.

  • so much uncharted 2
    thats all anyone is talking bout these days
    kudos naughty dag
    cant wait for uncharted 3

  • I didn’t read anything about Dissidia being up on PSN on the web this week.

  • OMG Diissidia will come so STFU! BTW LOL at Nelson buying Uncharted 2 Among Thieves.

  • Wow, I can’t believe Major Nelson will buy or bought Uncharted 2!

    I mean the game is great and all, but I never imagined to hear/read something like this. :-)

  • i wont the sound track for uncharted, how can i get it??

  • I was reading this off of Joystiq just yesterday.

    looks like Uncharted 2 has gotten Japanese gamers attention. First we got the motion comic as a prequel. What’s next, a Uncharted anime anthology in the style of Halo Legends, and Batman; Gotham Knights.

  • @8 mister1337

    ummm why not just buy the UMD? Or are you one of those disabled people with a PSP Go?

    In any case as fun as dissidia is there are other games on the PSN to keep you occupied in the mean time until Square decides to green light dissidia (if ever) for PSN release.

  • @11 VGCGames

    Go to iTunes they have it available for 10 dollars.

  • Sony needs to allow trophy data to be used by outside websites. This is ridiculous, I cant allow a website that has amazing features for 360 owners like achievement rankings and rarity ratings because Sony is ignorant. Please, everyone should be on board with this, there is so much more that can be done with Trophies then Sony is allowing.

  • Gotta love this week with Uncharted 2. Also Ratchet & Clank: ACIT is near release date, which means another ‘amazing AAA title’. :-)

    Hey Jeff, what’s up with the promised Avatars?
    They should have added some up in the store already!

  • Jeff, will you guys be uploading anymore TGS videos/trailers to the store?

  • Now that Uncharted 2 is out, is time to set the blog countdown for Ratchet!

  • @2-Don’t even joke about Uncharted 2. It’s one of the best games ever. Haven’t had such a good time since I got GTA IV, which is the BEST.

  • Hey, Jeff, why are the Playstation.com forums managed by a pack of morons? They’re not SCE, hell, they’re not even gamers! They don’t know what Uncharted 2 is, even if it kicked them in the butt!

  • THIS!!!!!!!

    Hey Jeff, Have you tried logging in to Naughty dogs website? I’ve been trying to log in and get an error each time.

  • Bring back the chime that played when you loaded a game! I missed that. It added some class…

  • I wish Sony had the soundtracks for Uncharted and Uncharted 2 on the PSN. Jeff, Could you put in a good word for us?

  • Has the people who won the demo contest to win the FHE been notified because if they have then I’m screw.

  • I want Resistance Retribution in the PSN store!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nice week, especially with the release of Uncharted 2, i’ve been busy for the past few days :P
    BTW, i saw your name in the PixelJunk Monsters Credits Jeff (and Chris), nice!
    What game are you looking forward to mostly this fall/Q1 2010?

  • you Jeff, any word of Crash Team Racing coming to PSN in North America?

  • @22

    I second the chime. I miss that thing. It’s so lifeless without it.

  • Jeff,

    Please pass this on to whoever it is appropriate for, but please have someone in Sony talk to Disney Interactive Studios to get Lumines II on the PSN store for PSPgo owners! It’s the staple puzzle game for the PSP, and it’s mind boggling that it’s not available for download.

  • @18 – NDW4

    I know I shouldn’t joke about a game that’s so sick and amazing.
    I was just playing it like 30 minutes ago. It’s so addicting i love elimination.

  • Naughty dog work on jak 4 instaed of uncharted 3 and giv us jak 1,2,&3 compilation on blu ray

  • This is all awesome stuff…..but how bout some more info on the cross game chat that the naughty dog developer has been talking about thats supposed to come in the next update eh?

  • jeff,

    please tell chris that I want a countdown to RCF:ACiT as well:)

    thanks

  • I will share with every one (specially with SCE)’What I read’ this week.

  • Yes, it’s Cross-Game Chat coming in next PS3 firmware update. Confirmed by a Naughty Dog Developer on Uncharted 2’s release day. But SCE is afraid to comment on things like this, such as they did with the PS3 Slim!

  • Here’s another Uncharted 2 Review

    100/100

  • “Kojima Teases Metal Gear Solid Surprise – IGN”

    If only that surprise would mean trophies finally coming to MGS4 :(

  • Any news on…anything coming for Canada? Anything at all?

    It’s really disheartening to constantly hear “Stay tuned” from everyone (Grace, Asad, Arne…).

  • Borin NOt WaT hApen

  • Jak 4?

  • 1) mister1337: OMG, please just chill out and wait. We are all collectively SICK of your incessant whimpering about Dissidia. Find another outlet already. 2) All of the other requests for XMB music in games and cross chat are cool, but I would really like to see a more traditional/intuitive interface for music and video content on the XMB. Why can’t we tier folders within folders? I would like to organize my music with artist folders and have album folders within them. Also, why do all of the songs in an album lose their track numbers and switch to alphabetical organization when I transfer albums to my PSP? That little quirk is veeery irritating… anyway, is there ANY chance we could see a fully-functional media player on our XMBs in a future update? Please? Maybe even another visualizer or 2? Thanks, guys! You’re saints to put up with/respond to all this crap we post!

  • I would love it. Too bad my ps3 broke down on me and once I got it refurbished my new ps3 had the blu ray drive break down on me….just a day after the warrenty expired….now im stuck having to pay another $150 to fix my ps3….I cant afford. you finally ran me dry sony!! now you got your way I am no longer a ps3 owner…at least im not a “working” ps3 owner any longer.

  • Steve Ballmer’s gonna hunt down Major Nelson and steal his copy of Uncharted 2 to stomp in front of the audience at the next convention.

  • Ratchet and Clank countdown on the blog Chris?

  • when is kingdom hearts 3 coming?

  • Just wanted to add a bit to the reading list–my comprehensive review of the PSP Go was published on Brighthand a few days ago.

    http://www.brighthand.com/default.asp?newsID=15753&review=Sony+PSP+go

  • Is Sony working on a solution to the problem of copy protected saves not being transferable to a different PS3? With the new PS3 Slim and many people with older PS3s wanting to upgrade (either because of hardware failures or simply wanting a slimmer, quieter, cooler PS3) this is becoming an increasingly serious problem.

    I myself was forced to buy a new PS3 Slim this past weekend because my original 60GB was shutting down every 20-25 minutes while playing Uncharted 2. Now, I plan on fixing my old PS3, but I’ve sort of fallen in love with the new Slim and would love to keep it. However, thanks to the problem of copy protected saves, I’m most likely going to return the Slim and just keep my old PS3.

    This is costing Sony money in new console sales as well as causing grief for their customers. More than any other single issue, this needs to be fixed. Is Sony working on this at all?
