After the waiting period I have to say that this is one HELL of a good update!!!

Great dlc for RB & GH & even better demos!!!

Thanks Sony!!! It’s times like this that make me really proud to own a PS3.

Hey, somebody at SCEA still remembers Piyotama exists! Any chance you’ll ever release the “No. 01″ skin for that game?

“So what was in this update that it took an extra 5 hours to put up? I mean really the only times the PSN is late is with Qore updates, and that never go passes 7pm est, what was the problem”

Took the words out of my mouth! SONY has reached a new [DELETED] low!! WOOOO! Brilliant! Seriuosly, what the [DELETED] is this?! Stupid [DELETED] delays on Little Big Planet, no trophy patch for Pixeljunk Monsters, unfashionably and unacceptably late update time, and pretty much no good stuff, aside from the demos, that is original. It’s all just the usual rock band and [DELETED] loser song update stuff and crap. This must be a big planned surprise that will be unleashed on halloween. Like servers will fail, data will be corrupted, scary sounds will play in the audio for everything, the ps3 will start spewing blood, and I bet the controllers will shock us and [DELETED]. SCEA, you never fail at royally failing- oh! You’ve earned a trophy-EPIC FAIL:Disappoint 2.5million customers by failing to consistently release any quality, original content for at least 6 updates
Grade:GOLD

Finally! Mirror’s Edge is one of the games I’ve been most anticipating trying, so the extra few hours was a pain. But I suppose I should be thankful you didn’t make it a time-exclusive with Qore.

Mirrors edge is AWESOME! Im definitely buying it1

+ MrBeatdown on October 30th, 2008 at 7:29 pm said:

Great update!

I wish Sony would commit to getting the PS Store update at a set time though. I turned my PS3 on around 6pm expecting it to be up. It wasn’t up until 10pm EST. It’s annoying to have to keep turning on my PS3 or quiting out of games only to find that it isn’t up. Is a set time really that difficult?

Hi Grace!
Grace, U STILL do not understand, WHY, WHY you do not have the FLORIDA GATORS in your Premium Themes section????

Can you PLEASE tell me why you do not have them? because you have most of the other SEC schools, along with their hated rivals.
And there are A LOT of Florida Gator fans here!!!!!!!
This is now the 3RD week in a row I have asked this question, and the 3RD Week in a row it is not here!!

Might I add, can we please get some new avatars? I’m no expert, but it doesn’t seem like rocket science to add some new ones. The collection of toothbrushes and electrical outlets has grown kind of stale.

It would be cool if we could use gravatars on the PSN sort of like how the blog here works.

Best Update so far I couldn’t be more hyped!


74

+ bloggin on October 30th, 2008 at 8:29 pm said:

Who are these people that comment here just to kiss Sony’s butt? An update without a game for sale is terrible at best. With the catalog of games that Sony has at their disposal they should be embarrassed to put an update like this out. This is quickly becoming the norm for psn!


75

+ psyXcho on October 30th, 2008 at 8:29 pm said:

wow, thought you guys were late with your updates compared to microsoft but this takes the cake.

I’m currently downloading Siren due to the sale, keep those up they are very good ideas. I do believe that if you buy the bundle that siren should download and play as one file though…

Keep it up.

Holy Carp…

PJM Patch would come from PixelJunk and not the Store Update.

@phyxcho What the heck does this have to do with MS? How is that Mirror’s Edge demo on XBL?

Grace…

2/3 weeks ago SONY launched a WiFi store for the PSP.

To celebrate SONY put NO content in the store last week and didn’t say squat about there being NO update and this week we again have basically ZERO content.

Can you please, for the love of gawd, answer all the questions we’ve been asking of you for about 6 weeks now? You are a ‘Senior Manager’….MANAGE SOMETHING.

took long to update but none the less an awesome update! are we getting the tomb raider demo like Xbox live did? what ever happened to Söldner-X that was suppose to be released on PSN in October?

+ shooter0784 on October 30th, 2008 at 9:03 pm said:

nice [DELETED] update guys

way to bring those demos.. been dyin to play those titles

any word yet on the pixeljunk monsters update?

not too worried about qore anymore seein that i got screwed out of the resistance2 beta and i got socom’s invite like 18 days late

i think im gonna stay away from that for a while to see if they up thier game a little more(not worth payin money for last-in-line invites or no invites for that matter)

on the other hand to the ppl wonderin about nov qore its not till next thursday… its still october

great work sony keep up the good work…. back to gta trophiez

@eddiedz

Tomb Raider got ca$h from MS to have the demo only on their system…too bad for TR as now they won’t get MY ca$h…ah, the choices that are made.

As for Soldner-X it has been put off, again, until ‘Late November’though they don’t specify 2008.

^Doesn’t see the flaws in that goodness….idiot

To hell with these less than stellar updates full of broken promises, lateness, and overwhelming disappointment! I’m good with everything I have, but when it comes to these stupid updates and what not, I honestly get excited. I really do. I hope to see some sort of good media like an exclusive vid, or a demo. But it has NEVER been as simple as waiting till whatever o’clock PM for the update…and stupid bumps happen during the process of these things. I mean, I get motivated for exploring the store, or getting a patch for a game, and none of that happens like it was stated it would! Good thing this is just a problem mainly with SCEA and the Playstation Network/store and not online play for games or really any other feature of the system:) Thumbs up there. The point is-We are angry and still try to be optimistic, we constantly complain and request about stuff like this, and get no real solutions for our complaints/requests, so I don’t know who even has a voice any more with you SCEA minions….something better be fixed, or SONY will absolutely be posting a loss and not a gain this year, just as you guys predicted according to G4.

+ shooter0784 on October 30th, 2008 at 9:33 pm said:

to me the only things i really have a problem with in the time that i have had a ps3 were

– the fact that i didnt get a r2 invite with my purchase of the r2 beta episode of qore

– and the fact that ep 6 is gonna contain home beta invites but only to anual subscribers

– and the late PJM update but other than that

i dont see what we’re really “missing out” on i mean to me i could care less about soldner-x and the avatars but hey i cant stop anyone from doin what they want

im havin more and more friends buy ps3s because thier tired of thier 360 and thier wii’s so i dont see how thier really loosing as bad as ppl make it seem

i just saw a article sayin that they beat out 360 sales wise in Q2

back to gaming

+ Delriach on October 30th, 2008 at 9:55 pm said:

If it is in your Download list, then you just click on the download button there. I just checked it now, and I was able to download it with no issues. so if you did purchase it, and it does show up on the list, then you will have no issues.

I’m still waiting for that patch for PJM!
