Chains of Olympus. All right! Not the best update, but not the worst by any means. Thank you! :D

Wasn’t there supposed to be PAIN characters too?

Where is PAIN? This was posted on the net. And where the heck is HOME?!?!?!?

When are we going to have a better update? I thought that this was going to be a store where I can purchase a lot more than what’s offered.

Were are the details about Home? Every week we’re expecting just an update of some kind, but it never comes.

Also is it so hard to put out more PSone titles every week? The pirates already have more titles available for PSP than the official store has. I already bought most of the titles and every week I’m expecting more.

Just put out 3-5 titles a week. Is that so much to ask?

Nice Weezer’s cool, but I already bought Pixeljunk Monsters so that means I get no demo this week. I would have liked to see the Home Open Beta in my store, but I guess that’s not going to happen. Are you guys even going to do an open beta for home anymore? And how come there was no information at GDC? It’s just flat out insulting to leave us this much in the dark considering how at CES when everyone asked about home you guys said, “Wait until GDC” and even though we all realized it’s a conference for the developers, we thought that at least a release date or something would be announced. Not just a new patch for the slim 10,000 people in the closed beta, most of which work at Sony.

Grace, Can you tell me if the Official release date for home/home open beta will be announced at GDC? Will home be in february?

+ Federation on February 21st, 2008 at 3:45 pm said:

The upate is ok I do love the Lair Theme. It’s good to is the demo for Chains of Olympus. (but I got the demo disc)

Is there going to be Video from GDC? Love to see more from GDC.

GOW DEMO!!!

i already have one though lol.

i thought flOw was supposed to come out for PSP today? oh well. no biggie. i got plenty of stuff to play as-is already.

i would like to see a Warhawk add-on sometime soon… or Burnout DLC. but that’s up to EA.

good update.

+ NewYork214 on February 21st, 2008 at 3:46 pm said:

hopefully the pain stuff was just forgotten on the post and will be out today. and glad god of war demo is out. hopefully its not the same one that was mailed last year. or atleast an updated build of that level.

and i think no matter what people will always complain about what comes out.

+ MUCKRAKER on February 21st, 2008 at 3:46 pm said:

Well I was hoping for more. Especially with GDC08 going on. Definately please to play God of War: Chains of Olympus. I’ve been waiting for some juicy details on Home, littleBigPlanet, WIPEOUT HD. But nothing again.

Come on Sony…you’re on a roll with all the news regarding BluRay and sales of PS3 on the upswing. Keep the momentum going. The fans have been dying for info and you’ve been so quiet about the issues that will really excite and please the gamers.

Also, I was really hoping for more updates from GDC08. Most all the sites are reporting tons of buzz worthy stories concerning the 360 and the Wii….where’s the SONY presence?

+ kagenish on February 21st, 2008 at 3:46 pm said:

nothing good in this update at all when are we going to get the good stuff, it has been weeks now with nothing go in the store.

Nice update.

Why make North America wait so much longer than EU/AU/UK?

+ depward on February 21st, 2008 at 3:49 pm said:

Maaaan, you and your “In-shirt XMB” shirts really made me think we might be seeing this feature in a system update today :(

where PAIN characters
what happen??????????????


15

+ Pendragonzero on February 21st, 2008 at 3:50 pm said:

Id like what others would like:

In game XMB,Home,etc.

But something that id like that I havent seen asked for yet is for the ps3 to show when someone is playing a ps1 or ps2 game. The name on the buddy list gives no indication someone is playing ps1, and if its a ps2 game, it signs you out. Just thought I would ask. Thanks

+ Lowe0 on February 21st, 2008 at 3:50 pm said:

And for yet another week, we get the Rock Band content that 360 players have already had for two days. It seems I bought this game for the wrong platform.

Fix your download service. Here’s how:
1. Have content up the day it’s out, not once a week.

2. Have content up in the morning – and that means Eastern Time. There’s this big part of the country called “states that aren’t California”; consult a map if necessary.

3. Have a low-power download-and-shut-down mode, so I can queue downloads during my morning coffee and walk out the door, ready to play when I arrive home.

not mad i mean BAD

*Sigh*

Another week, another update that’s disappointing. Throw in the lackluster GDC for Sony and what do you get? You get a sad panda.

Well i didnt see this one coming,keep up the good work..:),:(

@ NewYork214

Yeah, pretty much. People are such fickle creatures. They’re kicking and screaming in the Playstation.com because they haven’t gotten any news, but you know they’ll be kissing *** as soon as they get what they want.

Can i play GOW demo on my PSP… i’m from Portugal…

No GDC 08 videos, what gives?

I saw this coming from a mile away. Mr. lakaihigh from the last post didn’t want to believe me when I said people were going to be very upset/disappointed about this crummy update. “I told you sooooo” LOL Dude actually said I was creating “hate”.


27

+ bulbous_shot on February 21st, 2008 at 4:03 pm said:

The GOW demo doesn’t appear to be up on http://store.playstation.com/. I’m downloading it through PlayStation Store on my PS3 and will just transfer it to my PS3, just thought I’d mention the fact that I don’t see it on PlayStation Store PC.

“Another week, another update that’s disappointing. Throw in the lackluster GDC for Sony and what do you get? You get a sad panda.”

That’s funny. Are you a game developer? GDC is Game Developer Conference. It isn’t Game Player Conference. Too bad GDC has taken over for what E3 used to be. We need the old E3 back and leave GDC to game developers.

theres nothing to see.

+ Ramage on February 21st, 2008 at 4:05 pm said:

GoW COO is about the only good thing this week. I’m hoping next week since you all won’t be distracted by GDC that you’ll have a pretty sweet lineup since this week was pretty wimpy.


32

+ HanSolo on February 21st, 2008 at 4:06 pm said:

still waiting for wipeout hd, a demo of little big planet.. or mgs 4.. or winning eleven….or some good ps1 games.. like colony wars…doom..diablo….gran turismo 1 and 2….
how hard can it be??? at least for the ps1 games?? how hard??


33

+ Bender Rodriguez on February 21st, 2008 at 4:07 pm said:

I’ll give you guys props for starting to make demos of your PSN games. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. All original PSN games should have demos for them. I already got burnt by Pain.

Speaking of Pain where is the add on stuff that Travis over at the Pain blog promised today? I see they failed to come through again.

I used to own one of the Jet Moto games. Can’t remember which one. I wish you guys at Sony would talk to these third party companies or whatever needs to be done to release third party PS1 games. Like Final Fantasy VII, Resident 1 or 2.

+ P_tear_griffin on February 21st, 2008 at 4:08 pm said:

not he best update ever but still appreciated. ON a side note; It almost seems as though Sony is showing no signs of life at GDC. What’s going on down there? Aside from insomniac making a video and advocating for the sharing of codes, there’s really almost nothing on PS3 & PSP


35

+ Ghostm on February 21st, 2008 at 4:09 pm said:

Here’s news for all those who expects to hear something about in-shirt XMB (lol) and Home. Sit back and relax and wait for E3 2008 and that’s if it’s ready. From the update I read about PS Home. Its really doesn’t sound like its ready for the mass market.

Check out how fast this post average 2.68 goes down! Plus we are only at 33 post


36

+ Gomez81 on February 21st, 2008 at 4:09 pm said:

Decent update. Doesn’t really matter since the MLB 08 demo has taken up most of my playing time. Any chances on getting a MLB theme????


37

+ Bender Rodriguez on February 21st, 2008 at 4:10 pm said:

Also have you guys ever considered releasing PSN versions of Checkers and chess, and maybe even Monolopy? It could be one of those classics rolled into one bundle. There’s more though I can’t think of anymore. Complete with online play.


38

+ KatanaKing on February 21st, 2008 at 4:10 pm said:

why even bother with these kind of updates…its like the EUR store where they even put an old game on the main page to make it look like there was more than there actually was.

What happen to the content…nothing new??? No demo’s of upcoming games??? No new PSN games???

HOME??? Any news??? IN GAME XMB, i mean you tried to be amusing with the whole in-shirt XMB, but really, a release date would have been alot more mature. Sometimes i get the idea that Sony in run by 16 year old school boys.

+ TouchyEd on February 21st, 2008 at 4:11 pm said:

In a perverse kind of way, I actually look forward to bad updates. It lets me sit back and listen to a bunch of petulant children whine and cry like babies every week.

oh man e3, so far away. btw nice update, sucks that i cant play the coo demo since I never got a bigger memory stick for my psp.

KatanaKing,

You hit one thing dead on- Sony IS run by a bunch of 16 year school boys.


42

Hey, chill out TouchyEd! At least we got in-shirt XMB news.


43

+ Snap on February 21st, 2008 at 4:14 pm said:

@Brian

Ya, it’s for developers. It’s for Sony to show developers “Hey look at all this cool stuff we’re doing right now on the platform so people will buy your games on our system.”

Yeah, we didn’t see much of that. In-game XMB? Huge for developers and players a like. HUGE! No longer will they have to develop their own in game messaging. Cross game invites? Sony would take care of that too. Home? Check out what we’re done to make developing games easier and more appealing on our platform… nope, didn’t show that either.

Don’t feed me lines like “It’s a developers conference”. Sony had a freaking lounge… for bloggers? WTF?!

WOW!

+ J-R on February 21st, 2008 at 4:38 pm said:

Alright… I never post here but after a dismal GDC showing by Sony and their supporters I thought “May as well say something”.

I know GDC is a place for developers to show off what they are working on but as we all saw last year GDC catches everyone’s attention. Last year we were amazed by HOME and Little Big Planet and it made me happy to see what my $600 PS3 was going to do in the future. And here we are one year later and nothing. HOME has changed a bit and no big software announcements. No news on the In-Game XMB or any Firmware updates for that matter.

Sony if you are listening to your customers like you say you are all we want is to find out is when we can expect HOME and how is our In-Game XMB coming along?
