So much to do tonight I don’t think I will sleep. One question is the HAZE demo the same on the euro store? Because I already have that one so is it the same?

Hasn’t Rocketmen been out for a while now?

Sweet update!

PJM Encore/Muse track pack FTW :D

+ Jackal888 on May 8th, 2008 at 12:17 pm said:

Great Update but lack of PS1 games is sad. I still wait for Dvil Dice,Alundra,Einhander and Silent Bomber. PixelJunk Monsters will keep me busy until then.

+ Sheen on May 8th, 2008 at 12:18 pm said:

Yeah I thought Rocketmen was out. But, great update guys!

Next week I expect Bionic Commando Rearmed. If you don’t have it…there shall be consequences.

+ TouchyEd on May 8th, 2008 at 12:18 pm said:

If you want PS1 games so bad, go buy them on eBay. You can get them for dirt cheap.


15

+ eisbrecher on May 8th, 2008 at 12:18 pm said:

Question though; is there a specific scheduled time the updates take place?


16

+ StalkingSilence on May 8th, 2008 at 12:19 pm said:

@StupidityTries,
Yeah you are correct. I think they are trying to draw attention to it b/c the add-on pack “It Came From Uranus” is coming out next week. Capcom probably wanted to list it again b/c no one bought it the first time. Just my guess though.


17

+ StalkingSilence on May 8th, 2008 at 12:20 pm said:

@Jeff,
haha ok well the image file says conversation and the alternate text says conversation. I wasn’t tryin to be annoying (I guess it just comes naturally).
For real, the original point was to help out in case it was a mistake. Shoulda known better you sly dog, you.

+ mcpeepants80 on May 8th, 2008 at 12:20 pm said:

Finally, I somewhat decent update. I’ll be downloading the demos for Bourne and Haze.


19

+ Johnny Sasaki on May 8th, 2008 at 12:21 pm said:

w00t, can’t wait to get Encore & try HAZE & Bourne… Tell Harmonix to steal that Muse track pack and make it for Rock Band though!! ;)

Cheers!

+ mcpeepants80 on May 8th, 2008 at 12:23 pm said:

Seriously guys. PS1 games are great, but this is the PS3. I’d prefer more PS3 games.


21

+ TouchyEd on May 8th, 2008 at 12:23 pm said:

Yah, the GHIII pack is pretty cool. Too bad I’ll never buy another GHIII song after that dreadful Def Leppard ripoff.

I’m all Rock Band now, baby!

Can we please have some Killzone 2 videos from the recent Gamer’s Day in Europe? The new gameplay and trailer seems awesome even from the non-official sources on the internet. It’d make for some good PS3 system marketing for when my friends are over.


24

+ Delriach on May 8th, 2008 at 12:26 pm said:

yay for PixelJunk Monsters expansion.

#20:

PS1 games aren’t great. They WERE great. Back in 1996.

Sure, it would be nice to see a big library of them on the PSN, but it’s not going to make the PS3 experience any better. Nintendo has a bunch of old games in their online libray. Some really terrific classics. But when you pay for them, and then play them, you can’t help but notice how terrible they are by today’s standards — and you just feel kind of sad that you went back to play them.

If people want specific PS1 games so bad, why not just source them through eBay?

You’ll get them a lot sooner than waiting for Sony to release them on the PSN.

I agree with 23!

Killzone 2 Videos from the recent Gamer’s Day in Europe would be a great Video for advertisement!

Looking forward to this update going live. :) I’m kind of bummed that there’s no Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit demo yet, as there was hype after it was supposed to show up on Xbox Live Marketplace. Was hoping PSN would beat them to it. :P Oh well, maybe next week it’ll finally show up somewhere?

In other news, HAZE demo. :D

No Pixel Junk Monster: Encore for us in EU? :(

Not impressed…. our store only got 2demos, high velocity bowling (US have had ages), download content for Army of two and GH3 and some videos…. thanks.

PJM:E would have made it all ok BUT no u just had to be evil!

Like others have said, what’s up with Rocketmen: Axis of Evil being on that list when it’s already out? Also, can someone provide any small information when Dark Mist is going to come out? I’ve been anxiously waiting for it for awhile now.

Rocketman came out a month or so ago, didn’t it? Or is this the expansion?

    Hi Gorvi – Rocketmen Axis of Evil trial version with in-game commerce came out on 3/6. Full game is available for purchase via the main menu on the demo. We added this product to allow users to purchase full product without having to download the demo.

That demo for rocketmen is hands down one of the worst games i’ve played in a very long time.

Thanks for the colored section headers. Makes it much easier to quickly scan through the list in just a few seconds.

Can we get WipeOut HD already?! Every time a new video comes out, I get all tweaky.

    The funny thing about those headers is, it\’s because of a web issue we\’re working through on the blog. I think we\’ll have to keep them, however.

+ DLB on May 8th, 2008 at 12:52 pm said:

This was a good store update. Great job. But I have a quick question… I know that Killzone does not come out till next year, but will we be see a demo before it comes out?

Not that we need one cause after seeing those videos for the event the other day… Man this is why I love Sony… Keep up the great work, and if you have to delay a game I am one of the gamers who understand why because greatness takes time and that game is going to be great.
