Would’ve been better it had Home beta on it, though. Everything else is still pretty good, though. Snakeball might be nifty for a bit. Hope to try out those Eye games sometime.

This is a really good update! How could anyone complain. Warhawk Theme!? PAIN Themes! Warhawk the PSOne Title, Warhawk Omega Pack! WARHAWK!!!!!!!!1

This is a really great update, a perfect Christmas Gift!

@tearofash (1): You gotta be kidding.

Great update, no wonder it came so late, but wow. Cant wait for Snakeball (been waiting), cant wait to “admire” Area 51…and all the videos are gonna fill my HDD, themes should be awesome too.

Anyways, this is one of the best updates ever.

very nice!

and out of random curiosity, can you PLEASE make more games remote play compatable? like downloaded games wise.

+ S3NTRY on December 20th, 2007 at 5:03 pm said:

Oh hello there Draicus! Nice PlayStation Store redesign btw, looks great, hope you keep working on mock ups like that, your really good at them, love the new store design. And of you get serious there is a chance I could send them in to a friend who could have some others take a look at it. It might not become the next PS Store update, but they would see it, and you never know, it could happen.

Thats one hell of an update, it makes up for next week. Great work guys, keep it up.

oh, no wonder it’s such a big update, NO UPDATE NEXT WEEK. good thing i read that.

+ tearsofash on December 20th, 2007 at 5:05 pm said:

@ #2

Yeah. It’s a pretty “good” update. Most of the stuff updated this time around is stuff I don’t particularly care about. So …for “me” it’s a “good” update. While for others who own the games they released addons for, it might be a “great” update. Just because there’s a lot of stuff, doesn’t make it a great update. It’s very well-rounded for an update, but there’s only 1 or two things in my download queue instead of the usual seven or eight.


21

+ Loucetios on December 20th, 2007 at 5:05 pm said:

The new deseign works well, makes it easier to find new stuff, already got warhawk booster yesturday, will buy original warhawk to see how its changed :D and thanks for the tv spots, we all really wanted those :D We’ll miss you next week, but its a Sony christmas at my house this year(getting daxter pack psp FFT and a ton of ps3 games)

+ cmargary on December 20th, 2007 at 5:08 pm said:

Sony.. thanks for the PS eye games… u need more games and better for 2008… one thing.. make the aquatica and mesmerize games a screensaver… when the ps3 is idle pop the game… something like F@H

The poker add ons thanks.. and free…

And finally you are learning to make demos from the arcades games uh? finally… that makes more content in the store and better for us and for you.. is a chain

@cmargary (24): Ummm, no, they aren’t “learning”, because that is not Sony’s job. It is up to the PSN titles developers to make a demo or not. Sometimes the team is just too small and no time to do that. Learn the facts behind what you base your opinions on, too much [DELETED] going around these days dont you think?


29

+ darkiewonder on December 20th, 2007 at 5:13 pm said:

Looks a lot when there’s description placed after each update. LOL

Anyways. Stellar update. so the full game of Snakeball is up?

I haven’t had the change to check.

Happy holidays SCEA! Thanks for the updates. I’ll be enjoying those Folklore costumes. Nice to to see new themes and lots of content to keep everyone happy.

Just one thing remains for this year, but that’s not to do with SCEA, that’s over the other side of the world and our eyes turn to SCEJ and GT5 Prologue online, Xmas Day! Great way to end a fantastic year.

@Sheen (7)

I’m wondering where those 6 songs are also… I wasn’t going to buy them anyway, but they should be there if I ever consider it.

But hey, thats activision for you! Always favoring the RROD. If I thought they did a crap job with guitar hero then I would sell my bundle back.

On another note look at the RB content we were promised…its there! That’s harmonix for you.

Harmonix : people
activision : money


36

+ ryuzx on December 20th, 2007 at 5:28 pm said:

Huh, a shame EU got Populous for their PS1 on PSN game, but I’m glad we got something! Is there anyway whoever is in charge of the PS1 on PSN releases to post a blog entry, letting us know what SCEA’s plans are? Maybe take some suggestions for 3rd parties (FFVII) or let us vote on releases from Sony’s own catalog (Intelligent Qube)?

As for the rest of the update, I wish I had Folklore, but I got too much to play that I was postponing a lot of games until next year when I get a chance. I hope the holiday update remains available (and free!) for when I get Folklore.


37

+ Ramage on December 20th, 2007 at 5:34 pm said:

All I have to say is I’m glad we got some kind of a Christmas theme thing with the santa/cookie themes but there should be a way to turn off theme sounds to revert to the original ones because I like the noises…but not the ones those themes came with…just saying…there should be an option just like how we don’t have to view the bgs the themes come with


38

+ scarface3010 on December 20th, 2007 at 5:47 pm said:

Very nice update. I especially like the High Stakes Poker free content. Keep the Rock Band music coming, I’d like to see some more Metallica tracks for download.

@ S3NTRY

ok… I touch a nerve somewhere…

I know and almost everybody knows that… but they can said the developers to do that like in xbox live… isn’t the microsoft job, but they say to the developers is a must in their service… so stop to be so biatch… if you think the PSN network is perfect thats your opinion, after all it’s free, but it can be better and everybody (well almost) wants his favorite network service to be better

Now that’s what I call an update! Demos, PS1 game, add ons (most free I might add), themes, and good vids. Thank you, now if only more were like this.

Although I can’t buy anything yet, I’ve got my money ready for the PSN cards. Hopefully when you say early 08, you mean jan 08.

Happy Holidays everyone at sony

SONY where’s the Killzone 2 Theme that they got in Europe 2 weeks ago?

+ S3NTRY on December 20th, 2007 at 6:03 pm said:

@ cmardray (40): Wait wait wait. First of all, learn to type, I can barely understand what your saying. Second, Where did I say the PSN is perfect, its no where near perfect, nothing is. All I am saying is that when you say “Sony is finally learning to put demos for PSN game”, you obviously dont know anything behind that. The fact that these are very small companies making these creative original games. And they just dont have the time or man power (quote), to make demos all the time. So to say that SONY is learning is ridiculous, because it has the least to do with Sony. And keep in mind that this is free, with no ads, so they dont make money from ads or from users. So its harder to go around and create boundries of what all these small companies should do, and what they cant. I just dont think you get it quite clearly.

Also, what dose “so stop to be so biatch” mean? I dont get it.. are you drunk?

Anyways, I just dont think you get what I am saying, or the concept in general of what I meant. But thats really no surprise after looking at the way you type.. no offense.
