I would like to ask that you stop releasing games piece meal and more importantly STOP nickle and diming us.

$10 bucks for an online add-on that should have been there from the start is lame.

I realize this is a very pro-Sony board and that I will be flamed but I want to point out something you might have under appreciated or just plain missed.

Your nickle and diming is undermining the confidence you want to build with your consumers. Instead of purchasing that new IP upon release more and more of us are going to be waiting for weeks on end to determine if there is going to be an essential update we’ll have to pay for and even then we still may not even make a purchase. I’m sure your making money hand over fist off of the majority of consumers who jump at anything you flash there way, but there are also people like me who see that you no longer have our best interests in mind. That’s damage you can’t repair. You should be showing your consumers love and appreciation, otherwise you’ll start to alienate the very people you need to survive.

Couple of questions..:

When will the skate demo come out? Would be nice if you guys could put up some kind of info on when you’re planning on releasing content for the coming month or so. A few infopages about when you’re updating the store and what is to be expected of coming firmware updates wouldn’t hurt either.

And now to my other question:

Why is the EU store so empty? It is like 10 demos of which like 9 games already have been released.. :X
Also if I where you I’d think about doing global updates, or atleast updates for both EU, US and Australia(if they have their own store, don’t know) at the same time with the same content. Of course games like Madden aren’t very popular in Europe, but it wouldn’t hurt to give us europeans atleast a shot at trying it out, who knows NFL migth hook us! :>

I bet most europeans wouldn’t mind if the demos is in english or not. It’s a demo, live with it.

Also I know that the PS3 came out way after the box and that the developers might have some stuff to catch up on, but a few more demos and such would be great if you could release at the updates. Especially in EU since we seem to have very few demos in our store.

Thanks and bye.

I think this was indeed a very good update. Nice to see a wide verity of items available to download for those who might want trailers, demos or whatever else their looking for.

Having said that, I think Sony is in the right place to very much expand the PSN store to so much more. First, they need to keep the flux of demos and gaming content coming.

Now I know we have been promised Music and Movie downloads ( and who better to start this off sense Sony owns a Big movie studio and even Bigger record label)

Having said this and I hope somebody from SNE actually reads this but there is so much other contentent that can be provided and it dosent have to cost much.

For example, a simple thing is commercials. This can be in the form of A. game commercials. Sure we have trailers but sometimes commercials can be very effective and it should also be a simple thing to offer. From there on, other popular commercials can be there for download and im sure those companies would love to have their content downloaded. Im sure Sony could even more some way of getting paid to have other companies content on their Store.

From there, being a freelance editor in Los Angeles (and come on Sony, I could do this for you in your Santa Monica Studios for you!!!) you can hire many free lance or more professional editors/documentary crew or person. This idea gets to the fact that a behind the scenes can be produced for very cheap of different scenes behind the Sony company, or a particular game or event and again offered for download. This again provides very different and nice media for the cheap that gives your store more content but not just crap content as many people care for such things.

Wow, i was so happy when i heard that Puzzle Fighter was coming out at the same time as xbox live arcade but since you like to neglect your European/Australian customers so much nothing but a few trailers came out.

I was 100% planning to get the PSN version of Puzzle Fighter because of the superior D-pad but i went ahead and bought the xbla version!

I was woundering … if Sony is gonna do anything to fix Lair … it has the Potencial to be an awsome game… but it has horible ratings, just because of the control system. In turn giving thoses Xbox fan boys more ammo to use against SONY.

@Loucifer

Again your spin on financial news is inaccurate. For someone who claims to be a realest you sure aren’t grounded in reality.

Sony how come you have not teamed up with Apple to provide us with an itunes widget for the PS3. You and Apple are both on the same level interms of using similar unix based OS, design and quality of hardware are similar and Apple is on the executive board for Blu-ray. More people i know who use pc use itunes. It was strange to see you join MS. Why?

p.s. I believe that someday Sony and Apple will work close together.

@Stennex: Why so they can gouge us on a per track basis. If you want to give Sony your money so bad just sign your checks over to them.
