Battlefield Bad Company Redford Blog
Sergeant Redford has seen plenty of action while in B Company, maybe even too much, and having squad members like Sweetwater and Haggard in his crew doesn’t put his tensions to rest.

Glad to see Echochrome… disappointed that PixelJunk Monsters: Encore is still not out here though…

Where are the PSN cards!?
I’ve been waiting on Gamecrazy to get them in for months (have a bunch of store credit). I think it was about 3 weeks ago that you guys said they were shipping to retailers…yet I haven’t seen one anywhere! How dumb does Sony have to be to ship them out a year and a half after launch of the PS3? How much money are they losing by doing this?
What makes me most mad is that Hollywood Video (who owns Gamecrazy), as well as Levitz, Sharper Image, Performance Team Freight, Linens n Things, and Circuit City all filed for Bankruptcy. So they need to release these cards as soon as possible.

Man where is Pixel Junk Monsters: Encore…. Really disappointed that its not released again. I thought they said a few weeks it would come out. And I think the last time they said that was like over a month ago.

I suppose after last week’s stellar update, a bit of a letdown is to be expected. Still, not a bad week at all, so not complaining, just adjusting my unrealistic expectations.

Another great update!

Thanks guys and gals!

Any updates on when we can start buying and downloading videos/shows/music?

If I buy echochrome for the PS3, would I be able to play it on my PSP also?

+ CdnBacon on May 1st, 2008 at 2:29 pm said:

I’m not sure why folks are expecting two downloadables in one week, otherwise calling the update average or crap. It’s called staggered release, they want you to focus on one title at a time and get the most sales and also try to have a buyable game each week. What’s wrong with that?

Anyways, great update, great looking store. Are there leaderboards for Echochrome? When can we expect more levels that you talked about?

Nice, I bought Echochrome.

Nice update. Thanks SONY. I’m happy. All I need now is the Haze demo and I’ll be even happier. =)

You have to buy each separately.

People always complain… Why dont you just be happy with what you got today…

YES in the next 2-3 weeks you will get Pixelkunk monsters encore, yes you will get Haze demo, yes you will get bionic commando and yes you will get way more!
Just be patient and shut your mouth for a bit

Nice update. The photos on PSN still are slow to come up??? Will this be fixed??? Or is this how it will stay??? Apart from that its perfect ;)

Hello Grace –

echochrome, while an excellent game, shouldn’t be the only title featured for the PSP on an update imo. The Wyclef video was already featured for a “limited time only” back on the March 27th update.

hey, I noticed while browsing with Firefox, that the PlayStation Store for PC’s default Store Top / home URL:
http://store.playstation.com/game/index.vm
shows no games in the main window. I think this link:
http://store.playstation.com/game/index.vm#home
works better right now. This is not an issue with IE. Check it out you’ll see what I mean.

Here’s the obligatory lack of PSone release this week rant. /rant

thx

Great, I can’t wait to try out echochrome. Though, I wish it was a little cheaper.


24

+ WinterWolf on May 1st, 2008 at 2:40 pm said:

I wonder if the PSP echochrome game is different from the PS3 version……????


25

+ Barret80 on May 1st, 2008 at 2:41 pm said:

How about you shut your mouth for a bit, daver. All I was saying was they said Pixel Junk Monsters Encore was going to be here a few weeks ago and it didnt come.

A music video? I must see this … why isn’t sony promoting his own artists as downloadable music videos in HD? I would love too see every single week a music video put up on the PSN Store … maybe just for limited times, like 1 music video for one week then it gets removed and replaced with another one … I could really enjoy HD music videos from PSN …

I am downloading echochrome now.

That was way of topic.

@24

There was a post yesterday or 2 days ago about this game… and they said that there will be more info next week… that means that it wont probably be release this week…


32

+ Wndrtwn1 on May 1st, 2008 at 2:51 pm said:

Echochrome on PSP is totally different than the PS3 version. If you would have the lastest post you would have know that. There are 56 levels on the PS3 version and 56 different levels on the PSP version. So yes, you have to pay for them seperately.


33

+ BlackRabbit on May 1st, 2008 at 2:52 pm said:

Just because some of us are disappointed that Pixel Junk Monsters Encore still isn’t out, doesn’t mean we aren’t appreciative for the content Sony *did* post today – personally I’d just be happi-ER if PJM:E were this week instead.


34

+ Daver on May 1st, 2008 at 2:55 pm said:

@32

I agree i would have love to get it too..
well i didnt want to sound rude but every weeks its always the same thing, its always people who complains about how they didnt get what they wanted and blah blah blah


35

+ ne4ious on May 1st, 2008 at 3:02 pm said:

update not as hefty as last week but will do till next week.


36

+ Slimer on May 1st, 2008 at 3:03 pm said:

Why are we even thinking of being satisfied with this update?

1 Demo = good, Downloadable game = boring (imo), no PS1 game (AGAIN) = a bloody dirty shame.

When is Sony going to wake up, read this blog, and give us what we really want? Some GOOD PS1 games? I dont care how good the store looks, or how fast it loads, if the content sucks, it will all be for naught.

Maybe next week Sony, maybe next week (again).

There’s an update today?

Too busy playing GTAIV

Look at all the losers begging for ten year old PSONE games when they could be playing GTAIV

GTAIV!

C’mon guys… seriously…

Wow Cpt. Blue. I havent heard such an immature comment in a long time. You stick with your “cool” cop killing, whore sleeping, drug and profanity using game all you want. Keep up the good work “cool guy”.

Kudos to SCE for actually putting out a game this week. Guessing no other publishers wanted to go up against GTA.

I hope you guys n gals @ Sony are working on something huge. If so, it gives meaning to this update, kinda lacking.

When can we see the HSG: OB DLC? Soon I hope.

i cant wait until sony realizes they got the wrong people working on this thing, put someone that cares and listens to the gamers

ps1 games, ps1 games, ps1 games, ps1 games, why is the difference with japan so big? and the ps3 doesnt even sell there…

why keep ignoring the gamers?

Suggestion:

It would be really cool to see screen shots (as there are on the Japanese PSN Store) of the games… maybe even one day being able to sample a Rock Band song or watch a video clip of game play action right from the description area as well.
