Don’t know why my comment never went up, but I will again say that you need to change the part about Guitar Hero’s DLC. The song “Yellow” by Coldplay is being released, not “Talk”. Here’s a link

I am unable to re-download my purchased PSN content after replacing my PS3 because my PSN ID is linked to 4 dead PS3′s. I contacted customer service and was told that since I don’t have access to any of the other PS3′s then my only option is to re-purchase all my content (Over $300 worth).

Is there anyway to contact a PSN Store manager or someone who can help with this?

I tried the email links on this site but can’t get anywhere.

Great update! Hope you continue having Game Music available for download, perhaps by then end of the year there will even be enough for it’s own category.

Does anybody know if there is a way to get the Lair soundtrack off the game disc and into my PS3′s music? I was pleasantly surprised to see the complete soundtrack on the game, but would like to have an easier way to access it.

Thanks for the demos, too, and please bring out some more quality PSN & Classic games!

Man this update sucks! New levels of Suck at that. Oh well, atleast it isn’t as bad as the midway arcade days on the PSN. Anyone with a launch Ps3 knows what I’m talking about so don’t feel too bad ya all.

On a side note, Where’s my Ps1 games? Another week, another missed opportunity. Strange how you neglect each region in a different way Sony.

America it’s with ps1 games
Japan it’s ps3 content
Europe it’s everything thing. You just don’t like Europe for some reason.

Anyways, I guess crying about your crap updates and lack of content isn’t going to help. So to everyone here, don’t waste your finger speed on typing up a long blog post like I am. Use it to try out a typing test or something, cause the psn is about as useful.

Great update, i was just wondering if it would be possible to explain to us, in a blog post, why it’s such a problem bringing PSX Classics to the american PSN? I’m kinda curious myself, personally think its a copyright thing since Japanese and American copyright systems seem to work so differently, and im sure it would shut alot of people up if they had a valid answer as to why its such a problem. Thanks in advance

FIVE DOLLARS FOR ONE ‘EFFIN COURSE, ONE!!!!!?????? You guy’s have lost your friggin’ minds. I’m beside myself…. If I had of known that you were going to charge me 5 friggin’ dollars for one lame course, I would never have bought Hot Shots 5. WTF !??

@ gamesblow

I’d much prefer the days of the Midway Arcade games than the crap we’re getting charged for now. At least those games are classic. :/

Since I can’t edit my previous comment, I’m forced to double post. sorry :(

My seething rage for the FIVE FREAKIN’ DOLLAR golf course overshadowed the fact that the Metal Gear Database is up….this is pretty cool.

very cool demos. i was thinking if i should get fatal inertia and see if they really improved it so that’s cool and the commando demo is good news too.

cool trailers. all around awesome update.

peace.

Love the new course file size only 100kb… Lame. I wonder how many other courses are on the disc waiting to be unlocked for $5.

Otherwise decent update. Love the PSP game. Too bad I already own it on UMD :(

Dear Snap
The course will be downloaded automatically with today’s automatic update. Once you’ve completed that, you can purchase the key from the PSN store to unlock the course.

We used this model with the two new characters (Gloria and Alex) and will continue to do so with the rest of the HSG:OOB DLC items.

- CHM

This is the reason why I got rid of my copy of Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds

it is playable online actually. there’s tourney for specific course and only people with that course will be able to play on it. just like the Characters you download ;o

Wow… I was really interested in Fatal Inertia until you guys decided to try for $30 for it. Downloadable PSP games raising in price… Qore… nickle and diming everything… You guys must be really hurting for money lately… I can sympathize, but you’re alienating a lot of fans…

NICE Update! I have to say. Alot of things to download this week. And i can now learn more about MGS with the MGS4 deatabase!I love that song PAIN!! But i would really like to see is the PAIN Theme Song on guitar hero 3! Because i notice alot of guitar playing on this song If its possible..

But anyways Good Week PSN

@ 68 BASEMAN
hey man, i noticed that too..english isn’t the only language in the MGS4 DATABASE. French is available, so why not releasing it on the french playstation store? English is there. Why not releasing it on the UK playstation store? I just cannot understand what the hell SCEE is doing. But trust me friend, they’ll notice very soon. We’re not joking with our “do not purchase any product” policy. This is really turning dirty.

+ thingg on June 19th, 2008 at 4:30 pm said:

@66
did you not read the reply to the first comment that complained about that? (#19) The automatic game update today downloads the content and the 100kb is the key to unlock it. Now STFU and take your [DELETED] trolling elsewhere.

@gamesblow
Are you serious man???!! a downloadable game, 4 demos, 5 add-on contents (two of which are free) and a whole mess of videos, themes, and music is an update that reaches new levels of suckyness????!!!!!!!! HOLY [DELETED] MAN!!! WHERE WERE YOU LAST JUNE WHEN THE PSSTORE UPDATE CONSISTED OF TWO GAME VIDEOS??????!!!!!!!!! …and THIS sucks???
Seriously man, if you’re going to say this update sucks, you are totally out of your mind. And what, pray tell, is on XBL this week that makes that not suck? How about the Wii? *crickets chirping*

OT: Another solid update. Keep ‘em coming Sony… Could use a few more PS1 classics though (but not at the expense of the demos)

+ gamesblow on June 19th, 2008 at 4:30 pm said:

Also, Pain bricked my Ps3 offically. I downloaded the update for it and it wouldn’t let me connect my ps3 to the net. I restarted the game and noticed my xmb was snail pase slow. Started the game again, did the same thing. Restarted my ps3 all together and now it won’t work.

You’ll be getting it in the mail next week sony. until then, playbeyond!!!!!

+ Wilester on June 19th, 2008 at 4:35 pm said:

Dear SCEA,

Congratulations on doing a fantastic job for your consumers over the lifespan of the PS3. Seriously, well done.

Now if you could just fire David Reeves and pretty much everyone associated with SCEE and replace them with untrained chimps or maybe a scarecrow with a smiley face, Europe might not get the shaft week after week after week.

It is absolutely unacceptable that Europe doesn’t get the MGS database. I understand that you have the translate it into the variety of different languages in Europe but at the very least you could make it so that if we downloaded the Japanese or American versions they could actually read our saves.

Also let us not forget the general lack of content, the complete shambles that is the layout of the EU Store and what seems to be the rest of the world dumping their Sixaxis’ on us, and we have to get rid of them all so that we can maybe even get a release date for Dual Shock 3.

So yeah, clear out all employees of SCEE and let’s start afresh. The scarecrow would be a good start.

Regards,
Your friend, Wilester

It’s funny how everyone is always expecting something amazing every week in the PS Store. I mean, honestly.

Good update, only thing that really “SUCKS” about anything in relation to the PS Store is the lack of PS1 games (Not really, IMO), and how Europes Stores content… or lack there of.

Otherwise, its fine, stop complaining, seriously…

+ luckettx on June 19th, 2008 at 4:47 pm said:

@79: Currently you are cutting SCEE a lot of slack. The MGS4 database is ALREADY translated into English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish and Italian. Konami have already handled all the necessary work as it has all the languages required to have been posted this week on Euro PSN. Why it wasn’t, is as ever a mystery, evidenced here by the US Playstation blog having our comments quizzing about the usual european run-around.

I concur that SCEE’s management is the ‘weakest link’ by far with PSN, with the lack of content or explanations utterly insulting to essentially Sony’s best performing market, currently.

I’m glad the PS3 is region free, but when games randomly decide to region lock content like the MGS4 Database requiring a US save file, we are once again left at SCEE’s doorstep, shouting angry questions through the letterbox with no answer.
