PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jun 29, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

What did we learn this week? The Sony Group Corporate Strategy Update revealed a few things you’ll be hearing more about in the near future, the PSP and Metrocards go hand in hand, and inFAMOUS looks pretty damn good.

Here’s where I ask for your links: As always, feel free to share your favorite reads in the comments below. Comments may take longer than usual to appear – even bloggers deserve a day off.

But because I know what you’re going to ask about, and because we don’t traffic in rumors and/or speculation, I invite you to come back to the Blog tonight (just shy of midnight Pacific). We’ve got a video to show you.

The PS Blog weekly reading list (Week of 6/23)

I can’t wait for the video. I hope that it is 2.40. Once 2.40 comes out the PS3 will be awesome.

i think we know how to use the xmb why can’t you guys just give the fans what they want and give us the update do you have any idea how to make people happy?

Why can’t we edit our comment posts?

Jeff, I was going to ask you something about the PlayStation Blog birthday thing.

I was #25 in the top posters for the blog and I received an e-mail asking for my preferred shirt size and street address. The e-mail came from playstation.blog@gmail.com — is this a legit e-mail address? I want my shirt :)

@152

I feel the same way.

I hate how sony drags and makes us wait. Even with PSN store updates. Every Thursday. How lazy of them. That’s why the PS3 is the better console in Japan, SCEJ knows how to take care of fans. They give it as soon as it’s available.

Sorry to have to dog you out sony, but if the truth hurts.

Sucks that it’s just a video walkthrough and not the actual firmware update. I mean, it’s still awesome that we get to see it, but it’s more of a tease than anything.

Personally I have only one request after the famous in gamb XMB…
A playlist for our video content! I mean it would seem logical to do so. I use my PS3 for get togethers mainly, I can play my music and have cool animations going on in the background. But with the inclusion of the DIVX capabilities I have tons of HD Music Videos that I would love to play back one after another. What do you guys think?

+ AndyFraser on June 29th, 2008 at 6:34 pm said:

If we get a video tonight.. then why not release the firmware too?

Why make us wait.. come on Sony

I think all of you need to stop whining like little kids, they will get the firmware out when it is ready for public use, you no its coming and just be pleased that they did listen to the fans and spent the time to make in-game xmb for the ps3, now just calm down watch the videos when they are released and then wait for more info from the blog.

Nice updates. Was reading the IGN article on the PSP. Is it just me or is everything from their playstation team always a complaint?

BTW, my PSP-fat just went to the electronic heaven, after a tumble down the stairs. Guess it’s time to get a slim!

Jeff, not to be ungrateful, but will the videos give us a timeframe for when firmware 2.4 will be released?

Hey Jeff, I was wondering if 2.40 or any other FW will update the Playstation browser’s Flash player.

Hey Jeff, I’m new here but I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Sony who is responsible for this blog. This was a great idea for the Playstation community all over the world. I come here everyday for anything relating to the Playstation brand. Keep up the great work and keep those firmware updates coming.

P.S.
Firmware 2.4 FTW.

+ nando92 on June 29th, 2008 at 8:02 pm said:

skynet is obviously a lie to show the ps3’s power
skynet is a computer A.I. that does everything for a country (ex. Decides on war, economics, and money)
nothing a ps3 would have any use for (plus I don’t think its possible YET!!)
unless Sony has the same name for a different purpose

@AndyFraser
Why the hell would you STAY UP until 8am?!?!? Why not just wake up then? sorry but when I read that it just seemed sort of strange….

@Jeff/Sony
In the upcoming firmware updates could we get an edit multiple and ipod support? I haven’t added much music to my hardrive because it’s so tedious to re add all the album info that’s lost in the transfer. thanks in advance.

And when you say just shy of midnight, what exactly is that supposed to mean? 3 minutes till, a half hour? I guess I’ll just have to see.

Holy crap. I almost forgot about Infamous until the Game Informer magazine came in…Now I can’t wait for it. Is it for 08 or 09? If it’s 08, Project Origin is going to have some competition.

Thanks so much Jeff for all you do. You do really do a great job here and alot of us appreciate you despite our frustrations taking over sometimes.

I do have a question for you regarding the video store that is due to be released. Will the store be available in Canada at the time it is released in the US? We have heard lots about the US and sometimes North America is used but not Canada specifically. Any info would be great thanks.

Sweet. Project Origin won’t have to fight Infamous to the death to get my money.
