I just watched a 20 minute demonstration of LBP, it looks amazing :P

Sony you never fail to keep PS3 owners happy.
Well, maybe sometimes with the delays, but theyre always worth while!

Great Work…

Hey Ro Hernandez,

I’am have a problem with the video store and the store in general.

1. In the video store I bought a few episodes of T.V. shows and they’re not under my Download List. Is this a technical problem you guys are having or am i screwed?

2. The store freezes a few seconds before loading up(It did this before the video store but only for like 2 seconds, now it’s like 5-10).

And as for the DRM of rentals/shows:

1. I rented Rocky, I started it at 10:30am today and never got to finish it(literally only watched like 10 minutes) now when i get home from summer school tomorrow I won’t be able to watch it since i get home at 11:30am. In other words I’m saying the 1 day rental DRM is BS. Give us at least 2 days.

2. If I bought the episode of “Family Guy” or any other T.V. show I should be aloud to do whatever I want with it, whether it’s sending it to my 500GB external drive that I have hooked up to my PS3 or storing it on my laptop.

Just giving you some feedback, thanks.

Hey will there be a new killzone 2 Theme because the last one is awesome but is getting old. Thankz P.s what new Psn games that are coming out this month.

Hey Noel, I don’t know if you’re still around reading through the comments but I have a quick question for you concerning the new video store and not sure if its been asked or answered yet…

I know every thursday Grace comes up here (bless you for braving this blog I know you’ve taken a lot of Heat :) and reports mid afternoon of the content to be released for the PSN. My question is will you guys be taking the same approach and release new video content every Thursday? or will it be a thing of when its ready it will be released asap? and will Grace be posting on here to let us know what is new to the video store?

Ok, this is a shot in the dark as I’m not aware of a more appropriate place to put this in let alone that this message is even read by the important people.

Is it at all possible for the PS3 to set a certain aspect ratio through software, like how PCs do? There is a small number of people (but growing) who play their PS3s via a PC monitor through either HDMI/DVI or VGA which looks absolutely great except for the fact that unless the monitor is at least 24′(I’m using a 22′) and supports 1:1 pixel mapping, no black bars are placed to adhere to the 16:9 aspect ratio but instead the picture is stretched to fit. It would be awesome if a 16:10 display mode is implemented which adds the black bars thus allowing us to play at the proper aspect ratio.

And finally, uhh… go PS3!


+ CrimsonFox13 on July 16th, 2008 at 10:19 pm said:

I was really hoping for that MAG trailer XD

I’m so excited to learn more about that game!

why was their no playstation eye love in e3??????
it would be sweet to see some new unique tittles for the ps eye that would make sony a more fun to play and also Somthin similar to wii music on ps eye would be pretty sweet.The eye is Good accessory that can help ps3 sales.

are the games for the ps eye limited on what they can do????


+ stennex on July 16th, 2008 at 10:34 pm said:

Did anyone see the blatant ripp off by M$ with their camera reading the card like the PS3 Eye camera. Oh my. Sony needs to be on top in hardware sales. We have everything including blu-ray movies.


+ Devils1stBorn on July 16th, 2008 at 10:45 pm said:

Now if we can only get store updates with this amount of video content on a regular basis ;)

Killzone 2 is looking great…just hope I’m alive by the time it’s released…


+ dojikyo on July 16th, 2008 at 10:50 pm said:

My download of an episode of anime was fine. Except for two things it was in English. And more importantly, the ending sequence was cut off. Meaning previews and the after ending stuff that the series usually does has been cut out.


+ MidnightBlues on July 16th, 2008 at 11:00 pm said:

any word on what upcoming games will support trophies?


+ erico316 on July 16th, 2008 at 11:00 pm said:

Any word on Mac support for the store?


+ BlackShadows14 on July 16th, 2008 at 11:20 pm said:

I was wondering if the E3 conference would be put in the store. Thanks for the update!!


+ cmargary on July 16th, 2008 at 11:21 pm said:

Thanks for the update…

Anyway still worried why not video store for Puerto Rico if the other console have it since day one. They lack of videos in Canada but in Puerto Rico they let us buy the same as the 50 states… we are part of US without restrictions of any kind…


+ lakaihigh on July 16th, 2008 at 11:34 pm said:

anyone here know what song was played during the ‘PlayStation family video’?



+ theonetavy on July 16th, 2008 at 11:36 pm said:

Video Store works like wonders on my thanks guys i may not show my face on the blog much but the last few weeks have been great and thanks for providing us with the inside the developer vids. Good job at E3 especially with the LBP presentation. well thats my thanks for the last couple of week. time to get back to watching desert punk and burst angel.

*Video Store works on my end*^


+ gardea on July 16th, 2008 at 11:38 pm said:

When does Fat Princess come out?

No demos in this update?


+ stennex on July 16th, 2008 at 11:39 pm said:

In one of the sizzle videos on the PSN, there was an unknown game clip just after you see Naruto. The clip showed a man in a nano suit, his head had a red glow where the eyes are. He is on one knee crouching then he jumps from the ground straight up to the sky. Does anyone know about this game?


+ SnoopYTimes on July 16th, 2008 at 11:49 pm said:

when are the PSN Cards going to be available at major retailers? like best buy, CC, etc.

They would help out with buying stuff from the PlayStation Store.


+ xenix on July 17th, 2008 at 12:04 am said:

Hey Ro,

What’s the song title name of the “PS3 Sizzle Video”? Pretty catchy :D



+ OmegaArchetype on July 17th, 2008 at 12:08 am said:

I’ve already seen the conference, but I want to see it in HD, so I’m downloading it as we speak. I hope the next one’s are up soon too.


+ nysosym on July 17th, 2008 at 12:15 am said:

+ indigovenom on July 17th, 2008 at 2:22 am said:

you broke the mold when you made japan and the US the same region for blu-ray movies and shattered it when you decided to make the games non-region coded. so why now, are you deciding to lock everything. I am an american living in japan and i just found out that i will be trapped in japan even in “home”. this is dissapointing.

so i’m wondering is there a way to make some places in “home” not region locked.I would enjoy having my friends state side bring there avatars in to my place and go out and do something. I’m sure there are many advertisers that would love to be able to get their voice out to the world instead of just one demographic.

one more thing can we get more freedom with our avatars. i would love to make my own. I don’t really like most of the stuff you have available. also can we link our PSN ID’s up with this blog?

last, great job at E3 best presentation of the 3. thanks for all you have done


+ indigovenom on July 17th, 2008 at 2:24 am said:

by avatars i mean the icons connected to our PSN profiles


+ KatanaKing on July 17th, 2008 at 2:41 am said:

wow, more trailers….will the love ever stop?


+ Onna76_NL on July 17th, 2008 at 3:25 am said:

@Indigovenom, if I may answer this, the video store service is so far for US use only. Even if you own an US account, or live in Canada (NTSC US region normally), you can’t download any movie / tv show contents from the US PSN store. Plus other national stores doesn’t support video download service at the moment until further announcements. I believe it has to do with national legalization of these kind of products.

Concerning the avatar options, I agree, it would be nice to upload a picture from the HDD as a personal avatar. I’ve also thought about this ever since I saw the list of avatars on PSN. At first it would be nice to have a profile around here, so people can see where you’re from (around the globe), for instance.


+ AdversaryofGod on July 17th, 2008 at 3:29 am said:

I wonder what kind of game “Dead Spece” is?

(Videos: Dead Spece E3 Network Trailer)

Thx for the conference part 1


+ Onna76_NL on July 17th, 2008 at 3:29 am said:

Oh by the way, on the side note, I’ve got the Dual Shock 3 controller in today, what a piece of……….

wonderful hardware!!! Why didn’t you gave this with the PS3 from the start?

Now I can get the co-op trophy and only the bastard of a Late Boomer is keeping me away from platinum *booh*.

Concerning the PSN store, amazing job guys, wasn’t Elefunk suppose to release today? Anyway, can’t wait for the game, it looks so funny and entertaining :-)


+ adamb13 on July 17th, 2008 at 3:38 am said:

cant wait for kratos to be in soul calibur jus for us :) yay


+ MvmntInGrn on July 17th, 2008 at 3:58 am said:

Nice update, still waiting for the inFamous e3 Press conference video. My favorite trailer there!


+ Onna76_NL on July 17th, 2008 at 4:09 am said:

Wow no platinum for Stardust I just found out. A friend of mine has them all and doesn’t have platinum, so they were right? No platinum trophies for PSN games?


+ Onna76_NL on July 17th, 2008 at 4:11 am said:

By the way that co-op trophy is too plain easy, I had it in no time, you can do it all by yourself and you’re getting “gold” for it. A total different contrast comparing to the silver trophy of late boomer.


+ MvmntInGrn on July 17th, 2008 at 4:13 am said:

Wait Wait Wait Wait… what game is at 2:39 of the PS3 Sizzle Video? That is Crysis no? Seriously no joke that looks like Crysis to me.


+ grognard66 on July 17th, 2008 at 4:21 am said:

A few demo’s would be nice this week as your competition put up a couple good ones to tie in with E3…


+ indigovenom on July 17th, 2008 at 4:26 am said:

ok, ghostbusters game: special edition, movie and game, same disk, like stranglehold. do it again sony!


+ pinkwookie on July 17th, 2008 at 4:38 am said:

Sweet! Hope to see the LBP theme on there soon.


+ Marcoco11 on July 17th, 2008 at 4:51 am said:

Okay I am one of the few people really interested in Playstation Life partnered with GOOGLE…

My question is how will the ingame replay saving service work? Will it be available for all games? And How long can the videos be?

Also I hear this will be out b4 the end of the month, will all of the features be available at launch?

Can’t wait to make some sick Socom Confrontation Vids!
