    • Good week. I’m enjoying the TerRover demo

      Hey Sid, will we be getting any coverage of the PSN exclusive RTS game “Under Siege”? It’s sounding like a promising game since it’s an RTS which you can play with the PlayStation Move, and that’s pretty impressive for that genre of games.

      Could we be expecting Under Siege to release this year?

      • It’s funny, Jeff and I were just talking about this. It’s being developed in Europe, and we’re opening up channels with the team to discuss Blog possibilities, so…stay tuned! Otherwise, I don’t know much more about the game than you. We’ll be digging hard for more details!

    • Will you guys be streaming the Sony GamesCon Press Conference?

    • hello sid , the trailer for kung fu rider is not working there is only audio and a black screen . can this be fixed ? im trying to view it from my ps3 . written from my ps3

    • sorry sid but it is still not working . ty for your efforts.

    • This is completely unrelated, but go to one minute, KEVIN BUTLER WAS IN THAT 70’s SHOW?!?!?!!? AWESOME!!!!!!!

    • Scott Pilgrim FTW. The game is great and I’m going to see the movie soon.

      I’m also extremely interested in TerRover. It’s hard, but a lot of fun.

      Finally, DDR. After such a long wait, I’m glad I’ll get to play a PS3 version. I was running out of steam with the PS2 ones.

    • I have a question regarding the history, is Sony ImageSoft the exact same as sony computer entertainment but when they started playstation or they were just becaming one of playstation’s division?

    • Hey, you guys might have a bit of a mistake on your hands. When browsing through the PS3 accessories you guys confused the PlayStation Move Navigation Controller with the Bluetooth Headset, also you have the features and information mixed up.

      heres a link to show you guys:

    • Hey Sid. Any word if PSN+ subscribers will get access to the LBP2 beta?

    • can ya fix it Sid i’m planning on buying the headset

    • I enjoyed reading the Yakuza 3 reviewed by Yakuza article, it was really interesting.

    • Hey Sid, is it August 17 yet?

    • I’m playing: Prototype, LEGO Harry Potter, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, Resistance 2.
      I’m watching: LittleBigPlanet 2 Adventure Trailer
      I’m reading: (gonna start) Alien.

    • Any news on LBP2 beta, Sid?

      • Not sure where this came from, but nothing’s been announced on this front. Remember that internal company betas happen all the time — I’ve heard zero word on a public beta. Chalk it up to rumor and speculation for now.

    • Sid!

      I just so on Amazon that Move games no have this logo (Playstation Move required with a PSEye and Move drawing), not the on that had been before.

      Please tell whoever is responsible to make it the way it was! It looks horrible!! and too cluttered!
      Can’t they just put a sticker on the box so people know? Why would they take space from the box art, when it’s already too cluttered.

    • I’m currently playing TerRover. That game is awesome. Amazingly awesome. I actually reccomend buying Qore just to download the DEMO to the game, that’s how good it is. Have you had a chance to play it yet Sid?

    • Look up
      PS3 Start-up Lock Code!
      in blog share. Also check out my other ideas. I feal ideas dont get noticed unless they are fairly new or in the first pages of “Most Popular”.
      Hey, I just had an idea! How about once a week we get Jeff, Sid and some other to announce 10 ideas they like. Then, post a blog with thoughts about each idea. It would be nice to see what you guys at Sony think!

    • @6
      Yes, his name is Jerry Lambert. He has also played in Everybody Love Raymond, Malcom in the Middle, and more.
      Heres a Facebook page about him:

    • I mentioned this b4 on the blog that my ideas are not appearing on the blog share. They are all original ideas (except the last one about Kutaragi) I checked.

      Since 2 months I made some 10 plus ideas and none have shown up.

      Plz fix or update me on the issue.

    • Like #2, I’d be interested in a live stream of Sony’s GamesCom conference. Any idea where I could find one, or is just not happening?

    • Scott pilgrim is Awesome.


    • Sid here’s the link to the article from

      They should just put a sticker, like the one that came with ModNation Racers, about Sackboy.

    • hey sid i just wanna know will ps+ members get any type of discount on dc universe online monthly fee? And is there any inofrmation from level 5 on white knight chronicles 2 being localized or coming to the states? Or should i wait for tgs 2010 to hear something on wkc 2

    • Hey Sid quick question please.

      If I buy the digital version on Red Faction, will my save file and trophies carry over from the Disc version?

    • Sid!!

      Like Soulrend said, I believe our man Kevin Butler was actually in a episode of that 70’s show. Also, I am 100% positive he was in a episode or two of Malcom in the Middle as well, most notable the Krelboyne Picnic episode.

      Now far be it from me to come here and not bring some kind of proof of his sitcome prowess. Below is a link to the VP of all things important doing a spot on Everybody Loves Raymond. Enjoy.

    • When is Castle Crashers coming out on PSN? XBLA has a barrage of cool games over the summer, one game takes months and months to come out on PSN.

    • Scott Pilgrim is amazing, it’s got me all hyped up for Castle Crashers as well now :D

    • I love PS3, PS2, AND PS1. I had a xbox360 and it was unfair, plus i got the three rings of death. I’ve had no problems with any of your systems. I grew up with PlayStation and i will always play PlayStation systems!!! Uncharted 2 and Uncharted rock! There is some things i do dislike about the ps3 that the 360 has, why cant you change your name?, why is there not a party chat so i can talk to my friends while playing a different game? Please take the time to understand what im saying. We both know that the biggest part of gaming is online.
