DEAR SONY-

REGARDING PS3 FIRMWARE 2.50.

VIDEOS SHOULD NOT PAUSE WHEN I BRING UP THE XMB.

PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!

Since the newest firmware went up, some content from the PS Store has disappeared. My DL list showed 171 items when the new firmware went up. Yesterday I checked again and my content was up to 175. I didn’t download anything new at all.

However, despite this increase, Mortal Kombat II is still missing from the PlayStation Store. Not only that, it is missing from my Download List allowing me to redownload it.

Haha within the first five comments someone once again asks about Canada.

I myself am from Canada and to all my Canadian friends out there I don’t think Grace will ever answer your question. Not until the stupid Canadian Laws approve the Video Store and give us a half **** one without TV shows etc.

Hello Sony,

Why haven’t you mentioned the addition of that ‘RECOVERY MENU’ in the FW 2.50 update log? Why did you keep it as a ‘HIDDEN FEATURE’ , although that tool is absolutely necessary. Please properly introduce it, do a walkthrough, tell us everything about it because it might keep people from sending their PS3 system to repair. Doing the repair at home, if that really is what the tool does, is a great option.

So once again, please reveal it properly AS SOON AS POSSIBLE,

Thank you very much.

What’s going with Xam’d you took down Ep. 13 it was up for a little bit but now it’s gone only Ep. 12 is up. We should already have Ep. 14. Are you waiting for Japan to catch up to the U.S. in the series?

Yeh, pass the word along..pausing the videos when we bring up the xmb is last gen type stuff..there was nothing cooler than having clockwork orange playing in the background while popping the smooth xmb up and sending my buddies a message about what type of ultraviolence we could get into in a match of GTA! Bring it back Sony! Thanks, oh and great video update, you guys never fail me!

video store still growing every week…not bad…i’m almost tempted to try it out, but sometimes i have to stop watching the movie halfway through for wahtever reason, adn then i only have that one precious viewing window of once within 24 hours of initail viewing..it’s just too restrictive!

I say give us a week to watch em as many times as we want? what’s the harm in that?

i couldn’t even access the store if i wanted to-

I’m still waiting to update my PS3 until someone official addresses the issues arising from the update..

the forums are full of reports of 60 gig launch units bricking…

firmware v 2.4 bricked my baby right around Grand Theft Auto 4 time, so with all the great games coming out i’m hoping Sony will say if it’s ok to DL or if i should wait for firmware v2.51..

thanks for the post

oh and good job sony on the 2.50 update everything is much easier to do and the account management is much easier


27

+ tangy_orange on October 17th, 2008 at 4:19 pm said:

Grace can you please tell me why Mortal Kombat II was removed from both the US PSN store and my Download List? How am I supposed to recover it later? Sony should still allow people who purchased the game to download it later, if it is available in the store or not. I’d like a response with this situation please.

+ X1rtam on October 17th, 2008 at 4:22 pm said:

Wow, this coming a few days after that questionnaire post on the GAP…I see more Bones, American Dad, Family Guy, etc. Nice selection from the FOX network! :D Also liking the Robot Chicken addition.

I wish you would create a subscription model. I and many people hear have netflix, or blockbuster passes. I can’t justify both.

+ kspraydad on October 17th, 2008 at 4:26 pm said:

I will eat my dog if Grace ever bothers to answer ANY of our questions:

So for recap:

Canada…yes or no. If yes…pin it to a year.

Only 1 DL of purchased video content…fixing this or not. If yes…when

Bring back option to not pause video in xmb…possible or not.

Disappearing store content…are you aware and are you fixing.

As always (6 or 7 weeks running now) I am humbly awaiting your answers.

lol, I was gonna make a comment on that LBP post, but it seems that the blog has locked it due to all the ant-religious hate and political-incorrectness going on. ha ha.

On the topic, is the video store ever going to get more networks to sign on? There’s a ton of stuff from FOX, but just about nothing else. Come on guys, what about ABC and NBC?

Side note: has anyone managed to get hulu.com to work with the new flash 9 update? I got one episode of Heroes to work but then nothing worked after that.

I would really like it if you guys talk with Warner Bros. to add Smallville to the PlayStation Store!

I don’t mean older episodes. I mean the newer ones, for season 8. It would be great if you could sign some kind of a deal with the WB and release an episode every week as it airs.

More previews and faster downloads.

What’s going with new episodes of Xam’d? You took down Ep. 13 it was up for a little bit but now it’s gone. We only have up to 12. We should already have Ep. 14 by this point! What is going on? I need my Xam’d fix!!

Its very annoying to see a show called squidbillies up on psn and see that it has no actual episodes to purchase! way to tease us jeez!

it is in very bad taste to have part 1 of a 2 part episode and not include the second part on psn…very annoying you guys left me hanging in the worst possible way. I am talking about its always sunny in philidelphia you have part of charlie and max dying but I cannot find part 2….very lame.

please fix this!
