Is it too late to get the Eye of Judgment Set 2 update this week?

The cards have been out in North America for several days now. I’m only 5 cards away from the full set. Would be great if I could use them.

Great update, still sadden of the lack of PS1 titles, but this is a great update nonetheless, Warhawk: Broken Mirror FTW :)

this message is for jeff off the topic of the update, hope you are reading this. i would suggest for the blog to put next to the number of comments another number for the number of responses from sony or other folks. i have zero interest in looking through the comments unless someone has the respect to the community to respond. too often good questions go with no response. the people who post blog entries owe the community reading to respond to at least some of the questions. we need a counter to tell us how many, if any, comments have been responded to. that would keep us from having to scroll through the whole list looking for red that never comes…

hi Grace and welcome back to the weekly updates :)

things are looking good (analog for Lair woot) but only a couple of vids for the PSP and PC Store? I know you are aware that us core PS3 and PSP users are clamoring for more PSone titles to be released. I’ve heard the reasons why the markets are treated different but come on now – what can you tell us, when will the floodgates be opened?

Thnx

It’s a good updat,but not great.after 2 weeks of nothing i had hoped this would be huge with the new store and all i guess i expected a little more.Still a good update over all.Thanx for the Warhawk bundal i waited to see if it would be bundaled or if i would have to buy them individualy.PS3 rocks!
P.S.If PS1 games are realy that important you ppl should look at buying a PS1!get over it.Also how many add-ons do we realy need for Rock Band,i mean realy enough is enough.

+ Randolph on April 17th, 2008 at 11:18 am said:

Disappointing update. I waited two weeks, and I see nothing to download. Why, exactly, can you not get more PSone games? Blood Omen, SF Alpha, Rayman…. they’ve been rated for months by the ESRB. So, whats the hold up? I really would like to know. (though I expect radio silence, which I will meet with keeping my wallet closed)

I was going to consider Prologue at least, but it has a rather hamfisted DRM scheme, and Konami is mangling the MGO beta with frustration. (Konami IDs) So, even after all this hype, I continue to not buy even one thing from PSN in 2008. Not one.

pretty nice content but i still want some PSone games, bring the classics back

+ Randolph on April 17th, 2008 at 11:21 am said:

@16

There is nothing wrong with wanting a promising feature of a console to be better supported, especially considering how absolutely STELLAR the feature is in Japan, it makes people more than a little envious that the NA and EU stores get treated like red headed step children who get scraps, at best. Besides, alot of it’s best games are hard to find, and even harder to find for reasonable prices.

If Sony puts a feature in, I fail to see the harm in asking them to actually support it, and I fail to see why us asking for that support here where they are mor elikely to actually see it offends so many of you in such a deep and emotional way that you feel slighted by it.

@18

I was wondering the same thing, Saints of Los Angeles was the one I was most looking forward to this week out of all the Rock Band tracks.

@16

Harmonix stated they will be releasing tracks for Rock Band weekly, that’s their business, not Sony’s.


28

+ Tondog on April 17th, 2008 at 11:25 am said:

And here comes the complaining about a perfectly fine update/in game XMB/Home/whatever else they want.

@14: It’s not lame. It’s just not what you wanted to see. New Warhawk and Super Stardust HD stuff makes this update amazing.

Yeah, it is disappointing that Sony doesn’t seem to be releasing new PS1 games quick enough, but I hope they turn that around and get some great PS1 games up on the service. I would love to buy Tomba 1 and 2, Intelligent Qube, Disruptor, Vib Ribbon, Einhander, and some others, but I would rather pay something like $10 instead of the near $80 some of those games go for on eBay. Come on Sony, you guys have an awesome back catalog of games that people are willing to pay for. Why not get some of them up and get some of the money going into eBay on these rare titles?

..But for now, new Super Stardust HD content and the MGO beta is plenty to keep me occupied. :D

+ awheaten on April 17th, 2008 at 11:26 am said:

Dear Sony,

Never the one to complain. But, I think it is time for you all to come out with some PS1 and 2 games on the network instead of all these videos.

Not to sound like a stick in the mud, but where is the Lair Demo that the Hong Kong store got today? Why didn’t we get it?

+ JamesL007 on April 17th, 2008 at 11:27 am said:

Is that it, after Two weeks of no updates all we get is Warhawk Add-on and GT:5 Prologue as the best you can offer.

Seriously I had bigger plans for this Thursday release, I guess the videos are to make up for the rest but still seems like a weak update if not for the Warhawk and GT:5.

But still the new store looks great.

+ Randolph on April 17th, 2008 at 11:28 am said:

It’s only perfectly fine in your opinion, some of us see it much differently. If it were for a universal fact perfectly fine, I’d be logging in and adding funds to my wallet. But I’m not.

+ btutterrow on April 17th, 2008 at 11:29 am said:

It is pitiful that the PC PSN users waited 2 weeks for an update with everyone else, and there wasn’t a PSP game, or a PSONE game, or a demo, or a theme, but just a couple videos for a game that ISN’T for PSP.

I know you guys have been busy, but that is just sad.

+ Tondog on April 17th, 2008 at 11:30 am said:

@29:

Lair is 7 months old in America. I highly doubt it would be a benefit to Sony to release a demo of it now, especially since it was pretty much a critical failure for them. But yet again, they did release content for it, so who knows…Anything is possible.

+ Randolph on April 17th, 2008 at 11:31 am said:

@34

Because it’s a feature some of us want, thats why. We see it reaching it’s full potential in Japan, and we want to get in on that action. If that doesn’t affect you, then thats great, good for you. But why exactly does it get under your skin that other people want it? Did any making a point that they want more PSone games claim it was ruining their enjoyment of the system? No, they didn’t. Some people are demanding better support for one feature, get over it.

@38

A Lair demo would be great to alot of us, especially if it can use the analog controls. Alot of us would be willing to take the plunge, if we could try before we buy, but witht he way the game was universally slammed for having absolutely god awful handling, we are understandably hesitant to pull the trigger on faith alone. :)

Thank you for the update.
I’ve been experiencing 2 problems with the PS Network:

1) The content images are loading very slowly… but it loads. Around 5 seconds per small image.

2) My PS3 was on, and the I heard of the store update. I couldn’t see the new content at the store at all. I had to restart the PS3 and then they showed.

Also – a small question. Will there be a GT5 Prologue demo?

Thanks again
