Why cant i rent, buy, and see all movies in hd and sd. Why are there options limited for some movies? This really limits my purchases. Nice update though and good updates on the movie service.

Haven’t got any trophies yet though.

Any hints at what’s happening at Leipzig, I am getting a bit excited, it seems to be a bit bigger than neo-old-E3.

    We\’ve had 4 demos before, but never more…

    However, this is the first time we\’ve had:
    + 4 demos
    + FULL PSN Game (with Remote Play, I might add)
    + PSone Classic
    + Themes
    + so many Add-Ons

    Yup – it\’s a pretty heavy week with something for everyone!

Pretty good sized update. Nice to see 4 demos are up, I’ll be purchasing Bionic Commando Rearmed. Awesome there’s a BioShock theme looks like I’ll have to download that and the Bionic Commando themes. Thanks for the update Grace Chen.

Still no Xam’D Theme. It ok there alot of good things in the store today.

+ ChaoticInfinityX on August 14th, 2008 at 1:08 pm said:

Decent haul for this week. I’ve heard good things about BCR, so I’ll check that out once it’s up.

It’s funny how you can actually shave 5 cents off the cost of the Rock Band songs just by downloading them separately… but I guess there’s a 5 cent convenience charge or something?

All in all, it’s a good week for the PSN store.

    Driver (PSone) was never announced for the North American Store update.
    Unless you read it here on the Official Blog, consider it rumour.

Great Update guys/girls . . Besides the obvious Bionic Commando and SSHD being completely awesome. . I’m excited to see the Bioshock theme thrown into the mix. Probably my favorite game of 2007.

Great update, excellent speed this week. If anybody from Capcom is reading, please, please, please, PLEASE release Megaman Legends 1 & 2 on the PSN. It’d make good business sense too if they were released along-side Megaman 9. A lot of fans would appreciate both psone classics on the store.

Antoher awesome update, but we can’t buy anything from the store, thanks again Sony. A lot of people want to buy new stuff and expansions for their games but for me that I live in Mexico is impossible, why you don’t do something quickly, your losing money.

I think, like always, I’ll buy Bionic Command from the Xbox 360, because they accept my credit card here in Mexico. And to let you know I prefer the PS3 over the other console, but Sony doesn’t care about us.
