I just wanted to say that in remote play I used to be able to sign out.

Since you guys have moved sign out over to the ‘account management’ icon, I can’t sign out in remote play. I can sign in, but not out. I used to be able to sign out before 2.50.

Can you guys please fix this too? thanks.

Guys, go to Settings and then System Settings, then select Restore Default Settings. After that the themes’ll install fine. Just tried it today.

Make sure NOT to select Restore PS3 System, which will destroy everything on your hard drive.

And I can speak to the awesome-ness of the MM9 themes. They DO add the sound effects.

@Valkysas

thanks for having my back, man-

@everyone who says people who’s PS3′s have gone bonkers since updates are “annoying” and posting here is useless-

I think alot of you out there discount the power of this blog, it is official and we have the ONLY place in the industry where developers and official Sony employees regularly post here…i know that we are being heard, it just sometimes takes awhile for such a large company to get it’s gears turning! we have to collectively praise them when they do great (like sony constantly does) but when there are issues that need addressing, we also have to let them know!

And the official Playstation forums have hundreds and hundreds of people reporting the same issues, but still no official response from Sony..

After 2.4, if noone told sony their units were messed up, they would not have rushed the patch fix update like they did..

I have dealt with Sony Customer Service twice now to get a replacement PS3 due to Firmware updates bricking em’..

and both times i have not had to pay for the replacement, which was nice, but i wish it never happened in the first place..

I love my PS3! Like i said I’ve been here since day one, i got my awesome “First” shirt from being here so much, and i’ve gave WAAAAAY more praise than complaints, but i have to call em like i see em. I appreciate this blog as an avenue of discussion and customer relations!

besides, if YOUR PS3 was busted from a firmware update (before update = working PS3 after update = bricked PS3) you would feel the same way, and this is the second time for me!

peace PSBlog- looking forward to playing again soon..

i just purchased the coolest bluetooth virtual keyboard to use only with my ps3. i had it pair and register fully with my system but it apperently doesnt work with the ps3 because of a passkey problem with ps3 software making an “echo” style of passkey and the keyboard trys to use a single passkey( developers should know what i mean). these are the coolest most futuristic keyboards and sony would be too awesome to have the only system that could use them. sony pppllleeeaaasssee can u make a driver to work the I-TECH VKB check this beauty out at http://www.vkb-support.com thank u sony

Wow, the valkyria chronicles demo! My god, I’ll download as soon as I can, it’s the game I saw waiting for!!

But I’ll do that next week, sadly. This week I’m having my neuropsychology exams, it’s gonna be hard. All weekend I have study groups to meet, better be prepared.

I’m hoping for a prince of persia demo soon too, I finished all prince of persia games on the PS2 and loved them! (the 1st and the 3rd are my personal favorites).

Have fun guys! Be happy you are working or at school, university can be tough on the nerves and you like playing games… or doing whatever you like, lol.

No trophies for Prince…how disappointing. Srsly but every single game on bloody PSN should have trophies, period. Its a god damn Playstation Store…so games there should have all the features sony put into ps3….

With Capcom having their own section on the PlayStation Store (or so I’ve heard), when can we expect the two PSP Mega Man games to be added to the store?


167

+ SkA on October 25th, 2008 at 7:45 am said:

Why doesn’t Prince of persia classic run at 1080p? Why is it listed to be a 1080p game, if it only runs at 720p?

Congratulations to Namco Bandai and Capcom for doing exactly what everyone feared about DLC. Sickening.

you.re complaining that capcom released $8 worth of downloadable content for a $10 game, bringing it’s total price up to $18?

Megaman 9 is worth $18 dollars. it’s better than almost all $60 retail games that have come out in the past two years.

Yeah, the mega man DLC is way outta control. On the other hand just don’t buy it.

i’d really like to see more status and action options on the network

like for instance when im listening to music while im signed in have it show the xmb music icon under my psn id and maybe have it show

Listening to by

and for movies have it show a blu ray disc or dvd and have it show the title that im watching and do somethin for the divx movies or psn titles that we buy off of psn

it maybe a little hard to implement into the xmb seeing that it signs you off of psn when you watch dvd’s/blu-ray’s but i think they could probably mix it in with the BD-Live feature

just an idea
