happy that Warhawk update is there, but doesn’t seem fair people who’s been buying when releases when it came out has to pay another 7.99 while other who never got any expansion before gets to get one expansion free since it’s price of two…

Isn’t there a way to check if there is 2 expansions already installed and if so have the 3rd one for free???

I don’t mine the price… just need to skip one lunch… just doesn’t seem fair, nice marketing strategy… but not fair.

Who the F is Locksley? I guess no Moving Pictures for us either? Ugh, the one thing I was looking forward to in this update too…

Looks like I’ll have to wait another week for content that might — or might not — be good. But man, I wish that SC IV demo came out before I wasted $60 on it… what an overrated game.

Hey guys, thanks for the update. Can’t wait to download the Warhawk add-on.

So the rumor going around about the next firmware update adds a screen capture feature. I love this idea! Any “official” news?

Great update. If anybody at SCEA is reading, please bring Dark Mist over here. You have nothing to lose and it would sell quite well here. Don’t make me create a european or hong kong account to buy the game please.

What a rip-off I just bought the booster pack yesturday and now it has all three and it’s cheaper with three packs.

Also where is LifewithPlaystation? You guys said this month last month so where is it. Thanks for the Soulcaliber demo btw

+ oG-ShAdY on August 28th, 2008 at 2:12 pm said:

@13: If a person had been keeping up with the expansions they would have the other two by now. If a person hadn’t been keeping up then 3 for the price of 2 is a deal that would draw them in. I already have one but I still need to get the other two, so I feel that this is perfect for me even if I do get one I already have for free.

We’d like to provide a quick update on Life with PlayStation for PLAYSTATION 3. We know many of you are eager to try out the new service for yourself, but you’ll have to hold tight. Due to a few procedural matters, the new service will make its way to PlayStation fans in August.

Rest assured, Life with PlayStation will be a service that introduces a new way to interact with your PS3. By bringing information from around the world into your living room, Life with PlayStation will offer a variety of interactive content and channels on a visually stunning worldwide map interface.

We’re focused on continuously expanding the world of PS3 through new services and hope to do just that with the upcoming launch of Life with PlayStation

HELLLLOOOO!!!

Good update. Would love to see the store updated at same time as Blog though. Would also be cool if Sony sent out a message to everyone letting them know that the store is updated.

Now what is wrong with the store. I just purchased the Warhawk Booster, had an error when downloading, and is now no longing in the store? WTF

Still, good update

@3
if you don’t like getting shafted all the time, vote for people who will get rid of your country’s ridiculous copyright laws. For a market that’s smaller than California, you guys make it pretty fun for companies to get digital distribution platforms up and running.

@16
WTH are you talking about? They didn’t say anything about Home coming out by the end of august. All they said is it will be coming out this Fall. Also, if you’re getting all [DELETED] up about a PS3 version of the [DELETED] weather channel, you seriously need to get a life…

+ Ratchet3 on August 28th, 2008 at 2:17 pm said:

in the next update have the PSN IDs link up to each controller so more then one psn id can be logged in at once Ex: me and i my brother want to play warhawk i am using my username and he is using own so me and him can unlock trophies without one of us logging out

and be able to change your psn id name
THANKS

+ Maverick_fox on August 28th, 2008 at 2:17 pm said:

Nice update, but can you please make an extra bundle for those of us that
already have Omega Down?.I was hoping for a Broken Mirror+Fallen Star combo pack.

i read that the PSN cards will be out in blockbuster and 7-elven next month, but only in the US?
any chances to see them in Mexico? ’cause add founds to the virtual wallet is a pain (the psn don’t acept my mexican visa).


34

+ RoAcH2285 on August 28th, 2008 at 2:17 pm said:

@5 Skynidas

Right now the cards are in Pamida, Meijer and Speedway stores and they will be in Blockbuster, 7-Eleven and Riteaid stores in September and they will be in GameStop stores in 2009. All that is official information off of the PlayStation site except for the GameStop part which came from Kotaku but is legit. Hope that helps. I’ll post a link in my next comment, I want to make sure this one posts.

By the way I am getting Fallen Star. I already have 18 Warhawk trophies. That pushes me up to 89 trophies total at the moment. :)

this is the lamest week for updates i have seen in a while, i can’t even see myself downloading this stuff for free, i hope they make up for it next week. btw, why do we playstation gamers have to wait for the Rush album for rock band when it is ready for us to download. its only supposed to be delayed on the crappy 360. lame

+ lifeRPGs on August 28th, 2008 at 2:21 pm said:

@ 38 superbone547

The UK Playstation website updated the Linger in Shadows page, giving it a SEPTEMBER 2008 date…so it has been delayed.

+ IceColdKilla44 on August 28th, 2008 at 2:22 pm said:

Thanks for the update Sony.

Expect that $28 from me on the Warhawk Booster Pack and The Last Guy.

And while I hate to sound ungrateful, I really hope we get updates on these things soon:

1) Life with Playstation

2) Playstation Home (Beta? Full Release? Just need some info.)

3) When we will get more PS1 classics on the Store (Metal Gear Solid? Resident Evil? Tomba? Crash Team Racing? Final Fantasy 7? ALL of the Spyros, not just the first?)

4) When we will get more “Old School Arcade Classics”, which is a place where PSN REALLY needs some catching up, no offense (Contra? Sonic the Hedgehog? The Original Metal Gears? How about the Original Bionic Commando?)

But again, Sony, thanks for this great update.

+ FritoZ on August 28th, 2008 at 2:27 pm said:

hi everyone, it’s update time again, and our PS3′s have came a long way since launch due to firmware updates, and i think we are almost at a perfect console! BUT we are still not quite there…yet! The next firmware update is rumored to have the ability to take screenshots at any time on our PS3′s ..that’s great! I say keep the innovation going! we PS3 fans are lucky we have this blog and that the developers even listen to us at all!! so without any further ado-

++/Frito’s *REVISED* Top Firmware/PS3 update wishlist!\++

1) ~~~More In-Depth Online PSN Profiles~~~

Allow our new online profiles to be even more detailed, so friends can see exactly what games we own so we can better invite people, instead of sending out invites not knowing if the person even owns the game..and when you have TONS of friends in your list it really would be nice to know what games certain people have without having to message them.

it would be cool to see stuff like what type of music/movies/games we like, what model PS3 we have, etc. etc.! our profiles feel so cold and impersonal!

2) ~~~Bring Back/Fix Backwards Compatibility~~~

It’s just silly releasing new SKu’s with more features like bigger hard drives after TAKING OUT THE BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY!!! the 60 gig launch unit actually had the PS2 emotion chip inside, along with all the memory stick/sd card readers, and all 4 usb slots..so they ditched all that and then pretend like we are getting a great deal with a bigger hard drive?

I know of many, many, people who have put off buying a PS3 because they can’t play their huuuge PS2 library on it..and then go buy the 360..it doesn’t have to be this way!

******And please fix the existing backwards compatibility you DID include!******

The 60 gig launch unit in particular! alot of PS2 games still look horrible! ( like Final Fantasy 12 )

Early adopters like myself paid $700+ at launch and still have not seen this issue resolved. I know Sony has said no to any more BC in the new 80-120 gig SKU’s, but why not stick with what you guys DID do, and finish the job, please!

3) ~~~In Game Soundtracks/Streaming Playlists Mandatory For All New Games!~~~

you hear it all the time-people want this option! Make developers include this option in all NEW games since it is now able to be done due to the previous firmware updates.. (but it is still up to the developers) Tell ‘em to do it like you did with trophies!

AAAAAANNNDDD!! PLEASE allow streaming music from our Network computers and music from USB flash drives to play as custom soundtracks! that would be awesome! (it can save HD space, waaaaaay more songs on the computer, friends can bring some tunes over on a USB drive, etc. etc.)

4) ~~~Fix the PS3 Web Browser!~~~

the PS3′s dirty secret! Please Allow flash v9! We can’t even watch videos on these very blogs or surf reliably with the PS3 browser without it crashing… Now that we can upload stuff to YouTube, why can’t we then be able to watch them on our PS3′s?

5) ~~~MORE MUSIC VISUALIZATIONS!~~~

I use my PS3 as an all-in-one Home Media Center, and i stream ALOT of music from my computer to the PS3, and love watching the music visualizations in HD on my giant TV….but it’s time for some new ones! i love the 2 we have, but cmon! (the XMB ribbon one doesn’t count)

even the freeware winamp comes with almost 50 different visualizations settings, each with tons of variety within! I say let us amateur developers make some new visualizations on good ol AfterEffects and send em to Sony if your developers can’t be bothered to do it!!

6) ~~~Timed Shutoffs for Controllers and Sleep Timer mode for PS3~~~

Allow us to have a timed shut off for our controllers that we can set, like after 5 min, 10, 20 etc. etc. after no controller activity..it will save our battery life! also a sleep function for the PS3 itself, so we can watch a Blu-Ray movie without fear of falling asleep!

…Or even an option where after so much inactivity, the game/movie/song quits and launches into Folding@Home and auto starts a new work unit if you set it to do so..just ideas!

7) ~~~Fix the EyeCreate Software~~~

fix the stop-motion animation “snapshot” function in EyeCreate software to allow smaller bits of time, instead of having to manually cut EACH and EVERY little frame, it takes an average of 1000+ for a 5 minute movie! then we can have a PS3 blog movie festival!

8)~~~Video Store Atrocities~~~

Cmon guys, either lower the price of rentals at the new movie store, or extend the viewing time/limits…it’s embarassing! sorry, it had to be said. I’m excited about using the store, but i can rent them cheaper, keep them longer, and watch them as many times as i want at a traditional store or with NetFlix! You have to make us WANT to rent! Just because it’s there isn’t enough reason..

******************

just trying to help make the PS3 the best it can be~ I love my PS3 and have been posting here since this blog started, and really appreciate the hard work of everyone involved with this blog!

thanks for listening!
