Anyway, sweet update. I always buy the Qore episodes (Not an annual subscriber because I can never seem to free up $25 at one time…), been looking forward to that Pure demo!

Looking forward to QORE.

Is it just me or is the store not updated yet?


21

+ Deviation on September 4th, 2008 at 2:10 pm said:

The Store update isn’t out yet but Qore is available for download (to subscribers). As a subscriber, I’m happy to have the Motorstorm demo. However, 30 days is just way too long. Two weeks should be the absolute limit on demo exclusivity. It’s just not fair to everyone else out there.


22

+ PyroJack on September 4th, 2008 at 2:10 pm said:

@20 nvm it is now. That was odd.


23

+ cmargary on September 4th, 2008 at 2:11 pm said:

You don’t know how I hate the download now, play later of qore but oh well…

I will stick with warhawk and home now that pain dlc is delayed because of the trophies.


24

+ Aaron on September 4th, 2008 at 2:11 pm said:

Great update! :)

@ DangerDegan is been delayed till next week 9/11

Man I want a PS12!

But seriously we could use some more especially third party games. Not that sony games are bad I just want some Capcom, Square, hell even Eidos games!

Cool update!

+ RoAcH2285 on September 4th, 2008 at 2:14 pm said:

I know this should be in a Video Store Update post but I just wanted Grace or whoever know that last week in the Video Store Update you guys said you added seasons 1 & 2 of Futurama but you didn’t. I just checked again to make sure and all we have is the same 9 episodes of season 1 we’ve had since the Video Store launched. Could you guys add Futurama seasons 1 & 2 this week like you said you did last week? Thank You. :)


28

+ Vegaz on September 4th, 2008 at 2:15 pm said:

No NBA Live 09 demo?
No amusement park for PAIN?
$49.99 for Head Coach? Thought it was supposed to be $20


29

+ WHAT on September 4th, 2008 at 2:17 pm said:

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift demo (scheduled to be available 9/11/08)

Will be delayed. I just put a $400 bet in Vegas on it. You can’t let me down. Win win situation for me. :)

ETA on Life with Playstation?


31

+ SpookyJuice on September 4th, 2008 at 2:18 pm said:

Why release Qore if the downloadable content is not even available with it?


32

+ rAdIOhEaD73 on September 4th, 2008 at 2:19 pm said:

I will NOT subscribe to Qore just to have a demo earlier, SONY you need to rethink your strategy with Quore, We can get all the game footage from games we want from the internet, and like I said before I don’t mind waiting for a demo.
I understand that you need money, but SONY, this Qore idea on this “Internet Age” is just retarded, sorry…


33

+ Nitrowolf2 on September 4th, 2008 at 2:19 pm said:

great update, but any word on Pain amusement park, i jusr recently bought the game thinking that the amusment park was out today but found it its been delayed. Its a fun game though.
And life with playstation? any news on that?


34

+ Engine on September 4th, 2008 at 2:19 pm said:

So far this episode of Qore sounds like it will be one of the best. I just really hope that they did not skimp on the LBP information. If so I will be really upset :(

question about qore and resistance 2 beta. Now im not sure if you need a full subscription to get in the beta but wat if i buy that qore pactect that coming out soon? would that get me beta access?


38

+ X820 on September 4th, 2008 at 2:22 pm said:

Grace, could you please at least say something here? Reply some of the people’s comment in here. Instead of just posting the PS store update and then that’s it.


39

+ C-h-a-o-s on September 4th, 2008 at 2:24 pm said:

Eh nothing really peaks my interest this week, hopefully pain amusement park will come out next week assuming I still have power and the hurricanes don’t do too much damage if they come my way :(.


40

+ psyXcho on September 4th, 2008 at 2:24 pm said:

Why are people saying this was a cool update? This update sucked.. Not a football fan but I think $50 for head coach is a bit extreme for something that started as an add on pack to Madden. Pain update was delayed a week due to retooling trophie requirements.

Just a request but would it be possible to get Super Stardust in a bundle for a cheaper price?

Personally I’m wanting a new firmware update at this point :D What can I say, I’m a feature junkie!


41

+ gorillapimp on September 4th, 2008 at 2:25 pm said:

To whom it may concern,

Has support for PSone classics gone the way of the dodo? Im reluctant to post this blog since no one here ever replies to anything on Thursdays when the store updates. Grace, are you there? Does anyone care anymore? Im going to keep posting weekly about PSone classics, until we see more games brought to the store on a regular basis. What ever happened to the worlwide tour, talking to developers to help strengthen relations? Well, until next week ill be dreaming of the little Playstation Network that could.

+ MUGEN02 on September 4th, 2008 at 2:26 pm said:

if the motorstorm demo doesn’t come out till next month then why put it in this month’s qore.


43

That would be cool if we could get the E3 2006 Tech Demo video of Heavy Rain. PLEEZ!


44

+ rAdIOhEaD73 on September 4th, 2008 at 2:27 pm said:

And by the way, even if you buy the Qore today,the Motorstorm demo WON”T BE AVAILABLE TILL NEXTWEEK!!
Thank you SONY, but I’ll pass…


45

+ Daver on September 4th, 2008 at 2:28 pm said:

hahaha you tricked us with the motorstorm demo, oh well i’m a bit disapointed, i already preordered the game but wanted to play the demo this week i guess ill have to wait a little more

47

+ FeaturePreacher on September 4th, 2008 at 2:30 pm said:

@37 & 40
Grace is just a low level employee. She has no control over what’s posted. She’s just there to make sure the items in each week’s update fits the regular template that’s used. U shouldn’t expect any more from Grace.

49

Oh ya…

Where is Life With Playstation? We were supposed to have it at the end of July, and now it is the beginning of September.

I really hate when people call the Playstation the Delaystation. But in all honesty I understand why they do. Nothing ever comes out when you guys promise us that it will come out :(
