@101: I think Sony removed it for some reason and I don’t really know why. Now if PSN starts to remove games from their store and our download lists, I’ll take my money somewhere else.

Everyone should start noticing MK2 is missing now, if anyone has ever bought it.

When am I getting my bloody physical copy of Linger In Shadows?

I’m going to bug you about it every week until I get it.

I hope you don’t mind, because I’m more than willing to keep it up until you get the point that PEOPLE WANT PHYSICAL CONTENT.

Do you want my money or not?

wow this update was completely useless. Saw theme for $1.99… way to promote a new movie… As for MK2 guess I’m glad I didn’t buy it…sadly it was really tempting. Maybe it’s a prelude to MKT on classics?

The QORE people have access the Resistance 2 beta. I just got my code. Check your email. Also High Velocity Bowling was updated. Its good.

I do miss the Age of Booty…but we will probably get that next week…but by then everybody will be play LBP….

The Firmware Update 2.50 works and is solid. No issues here. Good job sony.

Sno-Cross Championship Racing…… really…… I mean common really? This is the best you guys could come back with after 2 months? *sigh* thank you, I appreciate the work sony is doing to try and bring PS1 titles to the PSN; but this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. Maybe next time.


128

+ KazeEternal on October 16th, 2008 at 8:40 pm said:

btw I wouldn’t have such an issue with Sno-Cross Championship Racing if it wasn’t for the fact that we have so few titles as is. To squander our one release on a mediocre game at best is kind of sad. If there were more titles being released I wouldn’t have an issue and would be happy that more obscure titles are being released to the PSN.

I really liked that the PSN store was slightly cleaned up. Really dig the multi-media tab and the fact that there’s an actual music tab now. on that note, can we expect to see more soundtracks. I would love to see the Uncharted, R&CF, WipEout HD soundtrack in there. How about, PS2 and PS1 game soundtracks? Just asking.

@everyone concerned about the lack of ps1 classics on the psp/ps3.

There are 239 ps1 titles available to download onto the ps3/psp in Japan.

blog.wired.com/games/2008/10/there-are-this.html

A quote from the article:

“Gaze and weep upon the 239 different PSone games — from Metal Gear Solid to Resident Evil and even crazier games like Einhander and Policenauts — that you can download to your Sony platform of choice if you live in Japan. In the United States there are … a dozen? If that.”

Makes me feel better that I kept my copies of MK3, Metal Gear Solid, Tenchu 1, 2, & 3, and SoulBlade.

@everyone asking for user generated avatars

Probably won’t happen. As can be seen in the events of this week with SOCOM, the ps3 firmware 2.5, and these psn updates, Sony has a lot of issues to address. Moreover, they do not want the headache of moderating those avatars for vulgar or offensive content. But in thinking about this further, this could be a way to monetize content on the psn. Only let people who pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee have access to user generated avatars. Make the fee high enough to support the team of people it would take to moderate the avatars for vulgar or offensive content. Non-subscribers would only have access to the list of Sony approved avatars for free as usual.

any idea of when the gta4 trophies are hittin psn or socoms for that matter?

even if it “actually” happens i still will never purchase the 360 … even if a severely chopped down version of mgs4 will appear

if it ever really ever came down to the point where my ps3 just died or psn had to close down i’d find someone that had another 20 gig sku and buy it from them or just stop playing games completely

I’m glad to see Playstation One classics haven’t been abandoned. Even though I do not like the latest Playstation One classic game (Sno-Cross Championship Racing). It does give me a tiny light of hope that other Playstation one Classics would be on the way. Oh I don’t know like; Mega Man Legends, Mega Man Legends 2, Parasite Eve, Parasite Eve 2, Final Fantasy Tactics, Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete and Chrono Cross to name a few.

Also we need alot more demos! Get in touch with Square Enix and get a Final Fanatasy demo for Crisis Core, as well as get them to produce a Demo for their next PSP Exclusive Final Fantasy 13 portable game please!

@Eric or any other firmware developers

Don’t fear redesigning the in-game xmb to reduce the amount of memory it uses in order to allow for in-game access to music for all ps3 games, cross game invites, and persistent voice chat for ps3 games.

I have 3 suggestions.

1. Remove the video and playstation strore categories. The 360 does not allow its users to play videos or visit the xbox live marketplace while playing a game, so you have no threat from the competition there. Remove items that you can’t and will never be able to access while playing a game. This action would result in the following categories being left in the in-game xmb: Users, Settings, Photo, Music, Game, Network, & Friends.

In the Settings section, only Network Settings and Accessory Settings would be available.

In the Photo section, only the photo thumbnails would be available.

In the Music section, only the stored playlists and non-playlist music tracks would be available.

In the Game section, everything would be left as it is.

In the Network section, only Remote Play and download management would be available.

The Friends section would be left as it is.

Hopefully this will reduce the amount of memory that the in-game xmb uses so that in-game access to music can be a system wide feature.

2. The other suggestion would be to change how the in-game xmb behaves. Make it where only the horizontal categories are displayed with none of the vertical categories displayed. To access the vertical categories you must use the x button to access it. Once accessed the horizontal categories would go away.

3. A final suggestion would be to combine the 1st 2 suggestions.

+ crystalx3d on October 17th, 2008 at 10:14 am said:

@featurepreacher
That’s a good idea. It’s silly to include menu items in the in-game xmb for features that we can’t use in-game. It’s also confusing. My vote is to just remove them.

Also, will we ever get xenogears ps1 classic on the USA store? It doesn’t need to cost 6 bucks like the other classic games either. Charge 12 or 15 for all I care. Right now the cheapest it’s going for on Amazon is $40 used. Please PSN, give us some of the good stuff the japanese kids are hoarding all to themselves.

I wish there waqs more PSone games in the store than there has been these recent months. Like Resident Evil, Tomb Rader, Metal Gear Solid, Duke Nukem, or even more Crash Bandicute. I still like the original content flowing in for the PS3s HD and unique gaming capabilities.
