Rocketman is pretty fun. Very cartoony, but fun nonetheless.

+ Cobra Girl on March 6th, 2008 at 12:18 pm said:

Certainly better than last week, but still pretty weak.

I just might get flow on the PSP. It might serve useful on my long train rides.

I’ll check out the Rocketman demo on PS3 seeing as how my 360 is in the shop again.

Love the continued Themes support from Sony as well.

Is it just me or is PSP out doing the PS3 with better download’s. I’m glad I got both. I want GOW theme for PSP. Please.

+ Foxx on March 6th, 2008 at 12:25 pm said:

Pretty solid update. Any chance that we’ll be seeing the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? Would love to see a trailer of that in 1080p on the PS3. Thanks!


12

+ reson8er on March 6th, 2008 at 12:25 pm said:

Not a bad update at all.

Thank you.

Quick question:

Is the wipEout Pure extra content coming to the store soon?


13

+ Indifferent on March 6th, 2008 at 12:26 pm said:

The PS3 update sucks so much.

The PSP Update on the other hand rocks! Will be downloading fl0w and Ape Escape on the Loose.

+ convicsik on March 6th, 2008 at 12:29 pm said:

Hey Grace, could you tell us if the U.S. store will ever be getting Dark Mist ?? Thanks.

And when the april psn store overhall comes, do you think Sony will start having more consistent (quality wise) updates ??

Every week im ready to spend my money, yet every week it seems like mostly 3rd party multiplatform games, or movie trailers (which most people dont care for). What about some PSone games EVERY WEEK. I would love some SNK fighters, 2d shooters like Einhander or R-type, and of coarse some RPGS. Why is Sony so slow to get the PSN store going !?!


15

+ erico316 on March 6th, 2008 at 12:31 pm said:

wait what happen to Echochrome demo? Are we in the usa getting the demo cause that the only psn game coming soon that i care about please reply.


16

+ Seanscythe2 on March 6th, 2008 at 12:32 pm said:

Sigh better then last week but not by much. Why are you guys holding back so much? There is so much you could add to the store but you’re not, I wonder if it’s for when home arrives? Will there be a section devoted to like PS1 games and Demos, and Videos?


17

+ Jeigh on March 6th, 2008 at 12:37 pm said:

Anything and everything provided is appreciated. :-)

I’m not quite sure what to think of Rocketmen… It seems like another dual analog stick game, but I have to wonder what the aforementioned “RPG elements” are and really what else the game is about- so I guess it’s a good thing there’s a demo! :D


18

+ OrganicShadow on March 6th, 2008 at 12:38 pm said:

So Sony, how’s that auto-ban-for-saying-in-game-xmb plugin coming along for this blog? ;)

Not too shabby of an update. I think we just crave demos so much that we would like there to at least be one per week- not counting game releases that have a demo mode before buying. Army of Two probably won’t have a demo, but it’s such a controversial game that I think everyone WANTS to try it, not just buy it.

Echochrome good demo
day 1 purchase
Rocketman ill give it a try

Hole in the Earth is awesome


21

+ nmc75 on March 6th, 2008 at 12:39 pm said:

My guess on the demo for Echochrome is that is needs localization (translation to English) before it gets to the US store.

Can someone at Sony offer up some more information as to what we can expect to see in April for the PS Store? Will we be able to purchase music, movies, TV shows soon?


22

+ FeaturePreacher on March 6th, 2008 at 12:40 pm said:

@Netweb:
Europe will always be last to get anything because there are too many languages. U.S. and Canada only have English. Maybe you should see if there’s a way for England to join the U.S. and Canadian release territory.

This update sucks too. What garbage! The PSN store is a joke. Thats Sony for feeding us scraps…..How about some NEWS!…about anything? Thanks for leaving me hungry and blind. Hope you guys didn’t hurt yourselves getting us all this insanely good content! (insert sarcasm here.) Wow…Rocketman….sigh…….


24

+ lakaihigh on March 6th, 2008 at 12:45 pm said:

sweet update… im gonna try my hands on some rocketman. thanks for the demo guys! will you please release some kind of news about the PSN overhaul that is supposed to be coming next month. i’d like to see what you guys have in store for us. that’s not too much to ask is it?

cheers,
Lh

+ diablo103 on March 6th, 2008 at 12:45 pm said:

we can add another week to suck list for the ps store. this is the 2nd week in a row i havent downloaded a thing because none of its interesting


26

+ Kenjisan on March 6th, 2008 at 12:50 pm said:

Poor update :(
More demos, PSN games and PSone Classics please!


27

+ depward on March 6th, 2008 at 12:51 pm said:

Nice to see a demo released alongside a PSN game; that’s a nice trend to strive for future releases. Even if it’s an extremely limited demo, I think (more often than not) it probably generates more sales than if a PSN game did not have a demo.

Thanks ladies & gents!

+ scorpio on March 6th, 2008 at 12:52 pm said:

Thank you….

Looking forward to Home…


29

+ diablo103 on March 6th, 2008 at 12:57 pm said:

can we plaes get a new home trailer, im pretty sure you guys at sony are at least capable of that.


30

+ Bender Rodriguez on March 6th, 2008 at 12:57 pm said:

I was hoping for the Echochrome demo, but at least Rocketman has a demo. Other than the Rocketman demo there’s nothing worth it this week. Hopefully the Echochrome demo will come next week.

+ FeaturePreacher on March 6th, 2008 at 12:57 pm said:

Before in-game xmb comes out in summer,

http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/03/03/scees-maguire-lets-slip-firmware-2-4/

,could you guys implement this one thing in a system update, multiple album info edits. To be more specific, could you add the ability to change the album info for multiple files with just one data entry so all of the files selected will have the same album info that was entered when the new data was entered into the text input box.

I ask this cause I’m certainly going to get Echocrome and Bionic Commando ReArmed on the PSN and it would be exceptionally convenient if I could edit their album info. in one fell swoop to place them into a PSN folder.

+ EnigmaOppanax on March 6th, 2008 at 12:58 pm said:

Not good, not bad.

Tiny bit interested in Rocketman.


33

+ Snap on March 6th, 2008 at 1:00 pm said:

Certainly better than last week. 3 boxes.

Still hoping for more PSOne titles…


34

+ hostes on March 6th, 2008 at 1:01 pm said:

ah btw:

please improve the friendlist! 50 spaces are not enough!!!

we need 70-100

thx

+ Frazz on March 6th, 2008 at 1:03 pm said:

I have a dream that one day PS store will be updated twice a week please make it so so I dont have to wait so long for such a dissappointing update(dissapointing to me anyways)


36

Bummer another week with nothing that interests me.


37

+ MrCamo on March 6th, 2008 at 1:07 pm said:

I do not think i will be firing up my Remote Play to spend any $$ from work today, oh well at least I can almost smell GTAIV it is so close!!


38

+ Stoffinator on March 6th, 2008 at 1:10 pm said:

Its a good demo, I thought we’d have a Condemned 2 demo today though. Oh well. I would like to see one area for the Rock Band stuff, it always is annoying to see it take up the front page.


39

+ KatanaKing on March 6th, 2008 at 1:10 pm said:

Amazing, not 1 single GOOD update from 01JAN, the PSN is an absolute JOKE, i mean we were promised an amazing onlne experience and after 1 1/2 years its still sucks so bad, how is this possible??????? Is there just not any content to put up on the store???? I mean even IMDB.COM get 10 trailers a day, we get 2 a week????


40

+ KatanaKing on March 6th, 2008 at 1:11 pm said:

oh yeah and when is HOME comming……………………………………….hahahahahhahahahahahahahahah NEVER


41

+ AceGamer on March 6th, 2008 at 1:13 pm said:

PSN game DEMOS!!!!

I know you guys have done that with a few of ‘em, but will you ever make it official for every PSN game? I’m dying to try Rocketmen and I’m not spending my money without getting the feel of gameplay. I’m not rich, you know.


42

+ CyberChrist on March 6th, 2008 at 1:14 pm said:

Is SCEA phasing out PS1 games as downloadable content? The ESRB list only has 5 PS1 games to be released on the PSN currently and at the rate these games are coming, they’re not going to get through 10% of the PS1 library during the life of the PS3.

+ erico316 on March 6th, 2008 at 1:16 pm said:

acegamer there a demo for rocketman


44

+ Maddens Raiders on March 6th, 2008 at 1:19 pm said:

*sigh* –

Another lackluster update. Nothing for me to rush home from work for (sadly). C’mon Sony, you’ve got a lot of really kick ass stuff in the works – why not release a morsel of it to the masses

…namely HOME/in game XMB or a KZII demo – something really kick ass

c’mom guys I bought my machines 11/17/06 and have been waiting patiently for a W H I L E now.

PSN:

1) Maddens_Raiders
2) Super_Madden_N4G
3) N4G_Maddens_N4G
4) Kaz-Yamauchi
5) Weapon–X

+ btutterrow on March 6th, 2008 at 1:21 pm said:

flOw PSP saved the update from being mediocre. I doubt I will buy Ape Escape for that price. $9.99 would be more feasible. Of course, I said the same for Twisted Metal PSP and ended up buying that one :)

I love having tons of games available on my memory card with full manual. Please keep up the PSP games on memory card Sony! Would love it if you brought full Patapon to PSN :)


46

+ B1ack_Mage on March 6th, 2008 at 1:23 pm said:

pretty good update. But, where are the playstation cards? I even went to the official playstation store to see if they had them, and they had know idea when they were coming out. And where are the PS1 games?


47

+ jlanzago on March 6th, 2008 at 1:24 pm said:

Where is MLB 2K8 demo?????????
Already out for Xbox 360 Marketplace since yesterday (for the users of that console) but not in the Playstation Store for all us PS3 users!!!!!!!!!!


48

+ HanSolo on March 6th, 2008 at 1:25 pm said:

no good ps1 games again.. no demos.. bahh, i think a change of personnel is needed, the people responsible for the psn content are not doing a good job, i hope sony realises that and put someone competent enough in charge

when will you listen to what the community wants?? 2014?? 2015??


49

+ Money1 on March 6th, 2008 at 1:33 pm said:

GREAT JOB SONY!!! Keep up the good work, there’s no room for improvement thou, but ps3 seems to be the system to be with, directed to all types of gamers not just fps so kudos

no wonder why phill left, he must have known how bad the ps3 was goin 2 get after sony won the format war. bluray was probably the only reason for the ps3’s existense and we fell into sony’s trap.
