Wow. Someone call the Waaah-bulence.
Sony puts demos up on the Store. People complain “Where are the games?”
Sony puts games up on the Store. People complain “Where are the demos?”
If they put out every game and every pack and every EyeToy thing that they have in their pipeline, they’re gonna end up losing money. Seriously, folks – take an economics class.
Seriously, stop and listen to yourselves. They’re putting out demos AND games on a regular basis. What’s wrong with a little pacing?
Oh yeah, I forgot – not everyone took their Ritalin today.

Yeah, demos might be nice, but for a $10 game (11$ for us up here in the North)?
Are you serious? It’s only $10. I’d expect and encourage it for disc based games, but for a fun little diversion, who cares.

Also, everyone complaining about the TimeShift demo – sorry to burst your bubble, but judging from the demo, it’s not going to make the game any better. Quit the complaining for something some company has to pay for (their servers) just so you can have something FREE. You’re not going to buy the game anyway, so why should they waste money on those fees?

And I’m sure they’re working on the cards – why wouldn’t they? It’d give them money. I guess I don’t understand how you could get a $400-$600 console and NOT have a card. Unless you’re underage and mommy and daddy bought it for you (then ask them!) or you’re a drug dealer who paid cash for it (please don’t shoot me).

No HVB’s fine with me – I’ll be too busy playing Pain tonight any ways. Yeah for monkey butt slaps….

I want to see Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus and Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee in the store, those games wold force me to either use my credit card or search for prepaid cards for the store. It would also be awesome to find some ps2 games there for download, games like RobotArchemicDrive which seemed to dissipater soon after release.

Thanks.

Thanks for bringing the Shivering Isles expansion pack out on PSN. I’ll check out Pain soon too. More themes would be appreciated.

Note to Jeff: So no Folklore content today, you weren’t crossing those fingers hard enough. Better luck next week then, right?

Solace? You… you just insulted me? Not everyone has a credit card you know. I happen to be underage and I bought the PS3 for myself, last console my parents bought for me was the PS1 in 95, good times. But ya know between Birthday money, small jobs and school annual financial aid($400) I made the money to buy a PS3. Take that solace!

I thought Pain was going to have MP3 support? I see no mention of it…

The game is kind of boring without any music.

+ Solace on November 29th, 2007 at 5:18 pm said:

@silentmatt
Bowling is having music support.
Or, you could have what I have – it’s called a “stereo”. It gives you full audio playlist support for all games AND is backwards compatible. :P

Thanks for the update guys.

However, with the PSP Store for PC now officially launched, someone really needs to get with it and release more PS1 Classics on a consistent basis.

+ frito on November 29th, 2007 at 5:42 pm said:

OK JEFF AND GRACE!!!!

1st off, thanks for this update! It’s great to see the Shivering Isles update! But I was crestfallen to see the price, as the game itself is only like $25 now…lol. Always after a buck. too bad.

I have some suggestions for you!!!

1) PLAYSTATION EYE SUPPORT!! PLEASE DON’T DROP THE BALL ON THIS!!!! Don’t let people get tired of the Eye because there is no new content..Europe has 2 games we don’t right now, seriously, what is the point of that? People will start telling their friends to not buy one if there are not multiple cool things you can do with it!

And the voice chat still has feedback echos!

2)Official Themes!!! Why release a firmware update option that only has like 4 themes available? (and one is cutesy hearts????) There are tons of websites that are offering them now…why are you guys dragging your feet?

3)The sales you guys have on games every now and then is a great idea, maybe adding multiple games in one pack at a discounted price? just an idea. I’m sure you have seen a huge influx of purchases when the games go on sale.

4) Don’t stop listening to our comments! We are your paying customers, your most ardent supporters here on the blog. Consider us a focus group, if you can please everyone here at the blog, it’s a cinch that will translate to the masses!!!

Thanks for listening!

cheers!

No offence, but im here to critique on what needs to be done…

First off THE PSN STORE is going downhill….What is up with no demos this time?! I mean last week we got the worst demo of all, I mean it had ps2 graphics! Then we get these add-ons which shouldnt even take place of demos or trailers because some of us dont have those games. If you guys put mostly add-ons inorder to take away more content, Then you guys really need to add way more content!

Add more movie/game trailers for upcoming games..Add something different to the PSN store to actually compete with XBOX Marketplace! Remember THAT is free as well, AND THEY HAVE A BUNCH MORE STUFF THAN PSN STORE! PSN STORE IS REAL WEAK AND THEY NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I PAID GOOD MONEY FOR THE SYSTEM AND WE SHOULD BE HEARD!

Sorry if I come as rude. But im here to help you guys out. I put CAPS so someone from SONY can hear me out as well as others =)

Pain is fun but it won’t let me play with a couple of characters b/c it says there is an error with content

Is anyone else having this problem?

+ vant6 on November 29th, 2007 at 5:50 pm said:

Again, the prices in Canada are being marked up by a dollar. Why are we paying more for the content when our dollar is the same or better than the US dollar. That’s not right. Maybe We should be calling the BBB and reporting it.

+ Solace on November 29th, 2007 at 6:04 pm said:

@frito
Oblivion may be $25, but the expansion is the same price on the Store as it is in stores. Look at it this way – do you want the convenience of not having to rummage for the disc every time or do you like having the actual hard code with packaging? It’s a win-win, so I don’t see why it should be different. Besides, considering it’s adding 30+ hours of content to a already 100+ adventure, $30-ish is totally reasonable.

@jm1080
“going downhill”? Are you serious? They give us all this content, and you want more trailers? HA! You’re either being sarcastic or are one in the minority. I’m leaning towards the former since you ask for more demos, but then complain when it’s not what you want. You do (but probably don’t) realize that Sony doesn’t make the demos nor the games from 3rd Parties, right? So how is that their fault?

Sony – ignore this idiot as we do NOT want more trailers at the expense of demos, games, or addon content.

@vant6
Either ask your folks for a raise in your allowance or send me your address. I’ll send you a whole dollar to make up the difference if it’ll shut you up. *hugs*

God, finally got Shivering Isles.

I hate the lack of Playstation Cards, we dont all have credit cards Sony.

And where are all the PS3/PSP titles? Least you could do if you don’t pump out more, is at least make the ones you do put out worth it.


73

+ Gunwing on November 29th, 2007 at 6:11 pm said:

Ncie PSN update! Now for the love of god update the PSP Store on the PC with like 8 game demos, as well as some more game trailers, and stuff.

Also give both the PS3, and PSP more themes like you said you would! We have waited for over 4 months for the new offical themes you were going to release and we still have nothing.


74

+ Solace on November 29th, 2007 at 6:12 pm said:

re: Themes
At least Sony isn’t charging for their themes like M$.
Go here (you can do it from your PS3 browser) if you are that desperate for new themes.

@ 88

I’ll be happy if SCEA adds Intelligent Qube to the PSN store so I can play it on my PS3 AND PSP. It really seems like SCEA is going out of its way to keep from getting my money or giving me a reason to turn on my PS3.

So i bought pain today and had a good time with the tutorial and started playing but it would only allow me to play with Jarvis. When i clicked on cookie or Santa it told me it didn’t download right and to go to the xmb to redownload it. I did that and then tried to use them again and got the same error. Is that happening for everyone or should i try and redownload it… i dont want to use up all my downloads if they’re going to fix this in a few days

PLEASE HELP!

+ Snap on November 29th, 2007 at 7:35 pm said:

We need demos for all PSN titles. It’s pretty sad that the PS3 can’t provide demos for all PSN titles. In this day in age of digital distribution for new IP games, demos are critical.

I won’t buy a single digital game from PSN without a demo. Please rethink your strategy.

+ frito on November 29th, 2007 at 7:39 pm said:

@81 Solace

about Oblivion, you’re totally right! I love the game, I have played it more than any other PS3 game combined! I just hoped it would be a bit cheaper as it just an expansion, and costs as much as the original full game..

But IT IS worth it, because the game is just so great, it’s already almost impossible to be able to do everything in the original game, and now we have even more!

(wouldn’t it be great if the textures on Oblivion looks as great as on Uncharted? maybe on Fallout!)

cheers!

AN IDEA YOU CAN PASS ON TO THE TECHS!

now that there are lots of themes sites where we can get PS3 themes, is there a way to have it so every time we turn on the PS3 a random theme, or random background could be chosen? That way it would be different every time!

just an idea!

So Sony, the question is – when is Europe getting all of this?

You Americans might think we’re better off with the PSEye games, but we’d kill for PAIN, the Oblivion expansion and paying £1 (UK) for loads of MotorStorm skins and cars in one.

We pay the equivalent of $4 for two cars, and $4 for the skin set.

How can you complain that things are too expensive when you get everything that Europe gets for a quarter of the price?

Jeff Rubenstein-

I’ve been using the Japanese PSN store and noticed that almost every game has “PICTURES” in the description area for each game.

Why does the American store not get pictures? WE only get text and I find it perplexing.

Truth be told, PAIN friggin’ RULES! If you haven’t bought it yet, you’re doing yourself an extreme injustice, $10 is almost too little for a game of this calibur, I say almost because while the game is designed most definitely as a standalone title, from the engine/general mechanics, to the execution/innovative fresh gameplay, to the extent… alone it should have been a blu-ray game, it does contain only one map as far as I’ve seen so far, but a greatly detailed, lush, packed, enormous level it is, and it doesn’t get boring, there’s always something crazy around the next corner, sign, KO’ed person, vehicle you just launched off the road with your character’s head etc… from things graffiti’ed on the wall, to pictures in some of the more hard to get to buildings, once you crash through a pane of glass… This map is huge, and undoubtedly they’ll be adding more layouts at a later date, at $10 you’re getting a whole lotta’ game, and no self respecting hardcore gamer should be without this, and new gamers/casual gamers, who enjoy a little potty humor alonside their sadistic/dark humor/other forms of comedy/mature entertainment, retains it’s significance, I’m flustered, I just came from playing the game, and am typing too fast, I want to go back to it, so much stuff to unlock, So much sadistic fun to be had, Idol Minds… you guys are pure Genius.

+ Kedaro on November 30th, 2007 at 1:47 am said:

@ UntoldDreams
I don’t know if maybe you browsed past it or not, maybe you haven’t seen it, but if you check every single US PSN download, you will find occasionally there is images in some of the descriptions, If I recall, there was for some of the early demos shortly after launch, and some for some of the first party content add-ons. Please confirm.

another shout out to PAIN dev’s Idol Minds, HARDCORE!!!

Thanks!
