PlayStation Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Sep 27, 2007 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi, everyone. It’s time for the PLAYSTATION Store weekly update.

We have two great PS3 demos this week:
• Clive Barker’s Jericho
• NBA 2K8

We also have a couple more add-ons. The first is a new vehicle for MotorStorm. This vehicle, the “Castro Capitano,” is not offered in any other MotorStorm bundle, and it’s only $0.99. There’s also a new Speed Master add-on for Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

As usual, we released more game videos and movie trailers:
• NBA 08 Upside Progression System tutorial
• Eye of Judgement Overview
• Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock trailer
• Iron Man trailer
• We Own the Night trailer

Enjoy!

Glad there are at least some demos, but I have to ask-

Don’t get me wrong, I am glad there is at least something new on the PSN, but man! I’m tired of paying for add-on stuff that the same type of stuff is free on the “other” systems network…

A $1.00 for a new car?

I mean, it’s just some 3-D studio Max template you are uploading and charging for…add on stuff should be free for the loyal fans to keep support alive on servers! Or let us make our own cars and upload them to race!!!

If we have to shell out $$$ for every so-so small add-on stuffs for each game, people will just go “meh” and not buy them…

BUT! If small add-ons like this are free and heavily publicized as such, it could help breathe new life into existing titles that , shall we say, have started to thin out on the servers…! It can keep us interested and playing our PS3′s instead of other options!

Cmon! It’ll work for sure!

We can all see the add-ons are just dollar signs to you all now, as the PS3 is lagging in sales…EVOLVE the add-ons, and make them into GREAT PUBLICITY!!!!

My 2cents.

and…I have to mirror what has already been said-

Where are all the PSOne games for PSN?!?!?

I mean, such a huge library of games…not utilized!!

The Wii has their old NES games, SNes, N64, Genesis, Turbografx-16 and others…

Just don’t price them more than $5.00!!!!!

I just want the PS3 to be the best!

@52 jonabbey
I thought that the Paramount-HDDVD deal was for an 18 month “timed exclusive” for HD-DVDs. Maybe i’m wrong or misread that, and if so, then you’re totally right about it being weird.

I’m lookin’ forward to seeing how Jericho turned out (it’s nice that we got it day-and-date with “the box”) and interested to see how 2K8 stands up to the other basketball demos. Currently, I’m leaning towards NBA08 because it was easier to play, IMO. Either way, two demos with totally different gameplay styles is totally fine with me. I remember the days when we didn’t get ANY demos and people complained that they wanted more. Oh wait, they still are…

I agree with frito.
Anyway next week: Ratchet and Clank!
(Praying for LBP someday)

@SpaceKeesie

i completely agree. The -3 week late- demos are nice and all but the EU store has only had 1 game in the past 2+ months! Where is Blast Factor and Piyotama and Pixeljunk! I know PSN games don’t seem like much to most of you vut i like the experience of buying it and then playing it for the first time and getting completely hooked!

Thanks for the update. As a heads-up for the community, JPN PS Store has TGS 2007 videos to download as well.

Man do I need a abbreviation legend or what? It took me 20+ posts to figure out what PES2008 was. Can you posters please try and type out the full text of an abbreviation if your the first one to be posting it? I don’t often comment on forums; I just enjoy reading them…but some of the lingo…wow!

PS – Nice update guys…Thanx!

Just so some of you know, Ratchet & Clank demo is out next week. A Metal Gear Solid 4 English demo is being made now. AND Home beta updated today and the update is live. So there you go.

Bravo, Sony! Bravo! Keep’em coming baby! Oh and nice job at TGS too. We would have loved it if some features were available this year *cough rumble*coughHome*cough* but it’s all good. Now make sure Uncharted is AAA and we’ll have a great Xmas with it and UTIII.

+ aaquib on September 27th, 2007 at 12:34 pm said:

Aw man, not updated yet :(

Why don’t you Europeans complain to ThreeSpeech? I dont think SCEA will read this and give SCEE a call to get more demos up. The content is created by the publishers and if they don’t want to release it in every territory, Sony can’t force them.

@75

they say it updates at 6pm EST so it will be here at 3pm west coast time, so in 2 hours we’ll have it.

+ MUGEN02 on September 27th, 2007 at 1:23 pm said:

can you start updating the store at midnight thursday, you did a great job releasing Warhawk at midnight why can’t you do the same for normal ps store updates. instead of waiting around in the afternoon for the store to be updated everyone could have checked out the ps store before they go to work or school and have the things downloaded when they get back home.

thanks for the update.

Yea, I’m to used to world of warcraft. They do updates and maintenance early in the morning, often times everything would be done before I even wake up.. but here I’m stuck hoping I can play a new demo today before I have to go to work…

Soul Calibur 4′s already slated for PS3. There’s a video up on the PS store.

2Pounds for a Motorstorm car? THATS $4 DUDE. SCEE is completely useless, WOW. 4X the price, when EU barely gets any content and everything costs more even after VAT and all that. Im not going to believe that there were 400% taxes on a “digital car.” Worst is that one of the reasons Motorstorm got a low reading was because of the extremly low content so instead Sony charges for cars and backward maps. Sony is starting to rip us off more than Micrsoft.

Nice update guys. Would be nice if people would stop whining about how they didn’t get the demo they want. I guess they expect to get everything in one week.


88

+ silentmatt on September 27th, 2007 at 2:40 pm said:

new rule: can you post these updates at some time near when you actually upload them to the server?

this blog post went up like 6 hours ago and the store STILL hasn’t updated. that is just lame. as is quitting your game to check every hour or so because you can’t access the XMB in-game.

I personally prefer to visit the store and be surprised, then read more about what is there on the blog afterwards. Posting about it so far in advance kind of ruins both experiences.

Can’t wait to play Jericho! Funny, I’m not ticked at the $1 motorstorm add-on. However, I’m upset at having to pay for an add-on on NG sigma when the add-ons were supposedly free on the xbox game. To add further insult, the sequal is exclusive to another system! Anyway, thanks for the demo games and other stuff!

I agree with 106 (silentmatt). It’s kind of annoying to see them post about ‘whats new on the ps store today’ then when we go to it theres nothing new on it, even 6 hours after they made the announcement.

Decent update keep’em coming. I can tell the demo process is going a little faster but if you could streamline it even more it would be most appreciated. If you could please push for Ubi for a demo of Haze and AC that would be great! Hope to see some of those first party game demos soon. Oh and like the broken record in these blogs please add more PSX games.

Any chance someone is working on making the store better? To me its ugly (there are more colors than blue) and not well designed for the sixaxis. It clunky to move around in with the controller.

I need no lectures on games that are coming out. I know the industry like the back of my hand, and if there is one game to help holiday sales, its MGS4 which will come out in early 08′. GOW3 wont selll consoles this early, GTPrologue Its about time we showed the Xbox 360 fanboys our “Killer App”. MGS4 will be it, and we need to capitalize on that. Resistance came very close, but when i see mGS4, i see a bright future for PS3. Which is why we need to show as many people as we can. Thus, we need to put it on the store.
