Nice update. And just as I said yesterday, there would indeed still be free theme’s to download from the store.

I have a feeling teh Valkyria demo will be made available for free sooner or later, just look at the Naruto demo that was included in Qore.

Nice Update, Keep up the great work Sony! Would like a full screen shots of themes to know what they’ll look like before deciding to buy any. And no I don’t have a problem paying a buck or 2 here and there for a theme when we get free services.


56

+ Fersis on October 9th, 2008 at 3:53 pm said:

Another gret update.
Lately the updates are awesome, good work guys.

@54 ya but were still waiting on the Motorstorm demo that was included in last month’s edition of Qore. HINT: Subscribe to the Playstation Magazine and it has a code every month to download Qore for free :). I don’t mind buying Qore though, there is some good content in there.

+ C-h-a-o-s on October 9th, 2008 at 3:54 pm said:

wow you guys sure rolled out a bunch of premium themes, thanks for the update sure seems like a bunch of content.


61

+ Ramage on October 9th, 2008 at 3:55 pm said:

once again i’d like to reiterate DO NOT PAY FOR THESE THEMES!

show sony that we will not tolerate nickel and diming tacticts like this. honestly what is the point of charging 99 cents for a theme? Just give it to us before someone grabs the images and makes it and sitributes it online.

I wish for once we got a decent free theme update like these OMGWTF there are 24 premium themes in one day? deer god i don’t think i’ve seen more than like 4 or 5 themes in one week and its usually just one or two…this is lame


62

+ big_hawk97 on October 9th, 2008 at 3:55 pm said:

A most excellent update indeed. HUZZAAAAH!


63

+ Ramage on October 9th, 2008 at 3:57 pm said:

and one more time

why is there an add-on for a game thats not released yet?

mind you its free…well one is…but that makes no sense to me


64

+ twooh on October 9th, 2008 at 3:57 pm said:

@60

Qore has good content? Like what, the Burger King ads? Or the other ads? Don’t you pay for qore? If so, why does it have ads?


65

+ Marceles on October 9th, 2008 at 3:57 pm said:

3 great updates in a row. I like the last minute surprises too, I didnt expect Puzzle Quest.


66

+ dirtylaundry022 on October 9th, 2008 at 3:58 pm said:

All I bought Qore for was the Socom beta. They can’t give me that. Then I got excited for the Resistance 2 beta, and I never got that either. Be weary to start buying Qore, you might just regret it .


67

Didn’t I hear the premium themes are not made by SONY?


68

+ InfinitiProject on October 9th, 2008 at 4:00 pm said:

Finally the new stuff arrived! Qore is downloading at a pace slower than crawl lol

The new WipEout theme is hella sick!

Downloading that long titled Supersonic demo to try out first.


69

+ Ortohinco on October 9th, 2008 at 4:00 pm said:

Don’t pay for themes guys, you are only going to make things worse.

Also, you can get the Valkyria demo by getting it from the european store.

“Starting today, PlayStation Store will begin to offer premium themes for purchase. These include themes from our partners Smobile and Disruptive Media Publishers as well as some game publishers.”

Whats wrong with Sony letting their Partners put content in the Store??? I don’t get it

+ Ghostm on October 9th, 2008 at 4:02 pm said:

Wow, Dead Space is not even out yet but there’s already paid DLC available. That’s amazing (sarcasm)! If you guys keep on supporting this kind of stuff then you all are crazy. Nickel and dime FTW huh?

Paid themes. No thanks! I’ll just make my own.

Anyways, I usually vote with my wallet. Hopefully some you guys will do the same.

75

+ InfinitiProject on October 9th, 2008 at 4:04 pm said:

Last comment: About the premium themes – It would be MUCH better to have a preview of these premium themes show in that box instead of a person/thing. I’d buy a few of them but that’s the drawback on me buying some.


76

+ craazy on October 9th, 2008 at 4:04 pm said:

So has anyone bought the themes? Do they do anything cool or are they just standard themes that are not free?


77

+ Voozi on October 9th, 2008 at 4:04 pm said:

lol @ people complaining about the priced themes…

Sony gave us themes for free

Sony gave us the tools to allow us to make our own themes for free

Now Sony..as a company, they are a company you know, wants to charge for some themes, and the people here complaining about it are acting like it’s the end of the world.

1) Noones forcing you to buy these

I’m against paying for themes, so I simply chose not to buy them, simple as that, no need to whine about it

2) If you’re in such dire needs of new themes for your PS3, go to a PS3 related site, they have thousands of user created themes uploaded for you to download, hell you can even do it right off your PS3 web browser…

3) Did I mention stop your whining?

——-

@ People whining about the VC demo, go make a EU account, the demo is right there…

——-

@ Sony, nice update, dissapointed about the VC demo being this months exclusive content for Qoore seeing as you can get it off the EU store, but oh well, hope the episode is good and makes up for this fault, and next month you redeem yourselves

86

+ Ramage on October 9th, 2008 at 4:10 pm said:

Something a little more constructive…

Why don’t you put these premium themes inside Qore and put the demo’s out.

i.e. subtly charge for themes while keeping something that should be free completely free. I honestly think these premium themes should go in Qore and any demos should be free to anyone and not just accessable by Qore-ers.

Any thoughts on that anybody?


87

+ Keysersoze10033 on October 9th, 2008 at 4:12 pm said:

Another thing, why is there Dead Space premium add-on already? I mean, Can the games come out first before you start milking it? Better yet, why not include the content with $60 price tag we are paying already. I will not support release dates add-ons (only after 6 months if it’s worth it), this needs to stop.
