  • Wow! Thanks for all the great content =]

  • TO BLOG MAINTENANCE: The embedded videos on the blog postings don’t work on the PS3 browser… Is is a Flash 10 thing or what? I tried using the search box and posting this very comment using my PS3 browser as well, but it wouldn’t bring up the text input box once I clicked in the field. Please tell me there is a fix on the way on either the PS Blog or browser end. It’s a bit silly to have a link on the PS3 home page to the PS Blog that doesn’t function properly on a PS3. Just looking out..

  • We need more dynamic themes! free ones too!

  • What the hell!!!!

    Where is the MLB 10 The Show Demo???????

  • I guess PSPgo owners just shouldn’t expect older games to be put up on PSN.

  • @ dehumanizer
    Make a European PSN account. They have two free dynamic themes there

  • No echoshift this week makes me a sad panda. :(

  • Hi grace. Not to be annoying, but any word on the demons souls themes/avatars yet? Thanks.

  • Hey! Where is OPTIONAL SUBTITLE FOR THE TESTER episode??? Does that means we won’t be able to enable that option for the rest of the series?!?!? HOW SHAME!!! SHAME ON YOU SONY FOR NOT DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR people like us who want to watch this in order to enjoy this and to understand what is going on. Not only that show, but for everything that you offer IN VIDEO STORE! SHAME!!!

  • No MLB 10 The Show demo? Come onnnnnnnnnnnn.

  • Great update~! Keep them coming~!

  • looking forward to that Yakuza demo actually.

  • No new DLC games, and some really bad PS1 games?


  • This makes me want to poop…and not in the good way. PSPoop

  • Free dynamic themes? I guess devs should make free games as well.

  • @McGlone16
    Yep looks like it… My PspGo collects dust yet another week, such a dissapointment…

  • Yay, for Puzzle Chronciles, only 3 weeks after it came out on UMD (not bad at all). I’m not crazy about the price tag though, $29.99 for a game that will be $15 on XBLA and $5 on iPhone. (Sony needs to do something about pricing parity, it’s not good for PSP owners to be ripped off vs other platforms)

  • Good up this week. Thumbs up.

  • Nothing for me this week.. oh well

  • YES another week of crappy updates!!! This is week 7 of crappy updates. if this doesnt change im getting rid of my psp go.

  • Yay Sonic Demo is finally on psn =)

  • yakuza great. Dont you guys think we deserve some new FREE avatars as long as we have waited.

  • This week was looking rather empty in terms of content, but there is a surprising amount to sift through after all! :)

  • Yakuza 3 demo nom nom nom

  • When is the demo for MLB 10 The Show going to be out?

  • Are the Avatars US only? Because everytime I look at the “Avatars” section of the PSN Store, there are only the LittleBigPlanet avatars.

  • AVATARS finally.

  • harvest moon, even a mini.
    harvest moon, even a mini.
    please with hd.

  • Valor avatars! <3

  • @4,PhillyManofStell. LMAO xD

  • Awesome update guys!!! 8)

  • VAGRANT STORY!!! WHERE IS IT!!! Europe got final fantasy VIII so why havent we got VAGRANT STORY.

  • Yea for Avatars!

  • Everyone that complains about things costing money (avatars, themes, etc) obviously doesn’t remember how it used to be before you could download items onto a console. We had to PAY for magazine subscriptions to get a cd/dvd with demos on it. People that demand free things have such a level of entitlement that it makes me sick. You have no respect for the people who create the content or their time. That is all… Oh, and watch The Tester!!

  • WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why isnt mlb 10 the show demo out yet. I’ve been waiting since almost a month. Plus this is a crapy update. Boo!!!

  • Ok what is the purpose of releasing the PSP Go
    if the games that people wanted to be on the playstation network aren’t there. Whats going on Sony? Either fixed the damn problem or find new leadership.

  • Can you please separate the PS3 and PSP updates into 2 different days/teams so you can look at them from a new perspective and realize that while the PS3 updates every week have been decent, the PSP updates have been horrible.

    You have asked a lot of people to have faith in your new $250 handheld and announcing a new Final Fantasy every 6 months doesn’t cut it. (Sorry if that spoiled your E3 2010 FFIX “surprise”)

  • LBP PSP DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(yay) make socom costumes for lbp psp pleaseeeeeeee………

  • disappointing that we get no mlb 10 demo with the game coming out in 2 weeks. on operation sports it was said that it should come out around the same time as last years, that was 2 weeks ago. i guess we will be getting it after it comes out…

  • One of the best updates in a long while! Downloading the RE5 add-on and the Yakuza 3 demo as I write this! Thanks a lot. :)

  • thats one lame update,and seriously Mag avatars!?

  • FFS where are all the PSOne RPGs, I don’t even have to enumerate them since all you guys know what I’m talking about.

    Instead we get three craptastic PSOne “Classics” that I’m sure only a vast minority will purchase in the long run.

    Whoever is in charge of the updates, get your act together.

  • Agree! But Grace can you Make a dynamic gt5 theme like the menu in prologue? that would be a great xmb look. or you should make the xmb look like that either way it looks great.

  • What the hell is going on with MLB 10? I mean no live game play footage, hardly no images and we were told we would get a demo around the same time as last years. Something is up and I demand to know what it is.

  • Hasnt TMNT always been $9.99?

  • Vagrant Story, please?

  • What a terrible, terrible update. My PS3 and PSPGo are both sad. Sony hates my money, evidently. Good luck with that garbage reality show that no one asked for though.

  • Yakuza 3 demo! Thank you!

  • were the HELL IS MLB 10!


  • hmmm……

    apparently socom:ftb3 was psp users BIG gift this week,anyway at least theres a pulse episode to download.
