Seems nice and it’s free. Linger in shadows looks pretty good , i’ll probably get it.

Now this looks cool! If it’s free!
Obviously I won’t pay to watch a video that tells me stuff I can see under New Releases for free.

Is this kinda like Qore? Or is it a free version? LOL either way on my way to the site to check it out…..

Playing the Flock demo right now BTW–not bad–little weird but fun!

how much?

+ SnoopYTimes on December 5th, 2008 at 6:21 pm said:

Awesome.

Are the videos also going to be available on the PS Store?

Or a good idea is put a PULSE application in the PSN section on the XMB where you can just stream the video. That would be cool.

What is the difference between this and Qore?

(serious question)

+ Microshock on December 5th, 2008 at 6:22 pm said:

Enforcer, just go on the link in the article above, and the video is free.

Also, sorry for the off topic thing, but play my level called World of Poo in little big planet

+ blkant on December 5th, 2008 at 6:23 pm said:

Hmmm, if its free, then you’ve put yet another smile on my face :)

+ PSPsGTghOost on December 5th, 2008 at 6:27 pm said:

Wha wat wat is this now?? Sony! Stop sending money on such silly stuff and spend the money in making more games and advertising them. I shouldn’t be having to tell you this.

Plus, why didnt Canada get the Limited Edition Prince of Persia that was promised if I pre-ordered??


13

+ smokey_vols on December 5th, 2008 at 6:32 pm said:

I’ll wait till I see an episode before I can tell if I like it or not.


14

+ SnoopYTimes on December 5th, 2008 at 6:33 pm said:

why dont people just watch the video.
and then comment.


15

+ Microshock on December 5th, 2008 at 6:34 pm said:

Yeah, the freaking video is free and theres a link right in the article!

It’s basically an ad but it shows you some of the gameplay in the game


16

+ KazeEternal on December 5th, 2008 at 6:34 pm said:

So when do we get to see Pulse on the XMB under Network? Would be nice to have this on PSN along with various other Pulse categories listed. Maybe a special section in the Home Theater for Pulse as well.

Qore is kind of a failure in my eyes, should just dissolve it and allocate this to a free XMB project.


17

+ cmargary on December 5th, 2008 at 6:39 pm said:

like everyone already said… this need to be in the xmb, I already saw it and it’s cool but in the xmb to compete with the other console not in the store.

BTW…. typing with the new PS keyboard

+ bronxchulo on December 5th, 2008 at 6:50 pm said:

this is a cool new feature to have. i like this better than qore.

SIDE QUESTION: when will ps blog link itself with playstation network so we sign in thru our PSN’s and able to be more networked?


19

+ Delriach on December 5th, 2008 at 6:55 pm said:

The video was pretty entertaining.

+ Ramage on December 5th, 2008 at 6:57 pm said:

Sounds intriguing but I do believe the majority of people who come to the blog are very well informed as is. I am curious to see if you will charge for this, but I can’t see why you would(but I thought the same thing about Qore and themes too).

Although I doubt I will be tuning in since I am constantly up to date with blu-ray releases and PSN updates (thanks to you and N4G) I’m sure this will become a welcome feature for those who aren’t as ‘plugged in’ as I am.

God I’m a freakin’ loser.

+ JohnnyMoses on December 5th, 2008 at 6:57 pm said:

whoopity doo!

That’s all. Just wanted to comment. I might just watch it because she’s alright looking.


22

+ Stoffinator on December 5th, 2008 at 7:00 pm said:

I don’t get why you guys are doing this if you have Qore? They both seem to be the same thing to me. Just one you pay for and one seems to be free.


23

+ El_Scorcho on December 5th, 2008 at 7:00 pm said:

Solid! But Kevin, if you wouldn’t mind answering, where is the video store for canadians? Us crazy canucks enjoy HD movies too!


24

+ Microshock on December 5th, 2008 at 7:02 pm said:

El_scorcho, i think sony just needs to get the licensing worked out etc….


25

+ farmer_steve on December 5th, 2008 at 7:18 pm said:

Is today news day or something? And as long as this is free; I’m all for it.

If not, then no thanks. I can barely afford living expenses atm, no way I can be spending more.


26

+ Death Touch on December 5th, 2008 at 7:18 pm said:

This does need to have access from the XMB as well as the blog and the forums. You sign into the PS network you should have access to everything on it.
Other than that this seems to be kinda a cool news highlight reel thing, look forward to this

+ ftown on December 5th, 2008 at 7:21 pm said:

well done, edits were tight, info was short and to the point. color seemed a little washed out on my screen, nice to see some footage from the prince side scroller finally, demo would be better. keep it up, 9/10.


28

+ hife on December 5th, 2008 at 7:27 pm said:

I’m going to assume you saw my post on the last post and decided you better get on this story. That’s right everyone, the world revolves around me.

+ CrimsonFox13 on December 5th, 2008 at 7:30 pm said:

I saw this earlier today by accidently clicking something on the Playstation website. I though it has been always there, but I had never seen it or heard of it before. Hehe

+ SpookyJuice on December 5th, 2008 at 7:34 pm said:

Kevin or Jeff, another good idea for Pulse would be something similar too the most downloaded title on the PlayStation Network, but this would be the top 5 most played online games. Say Resistance 2 has 10,000 hours played This week. It would be posted, then list the 4 top played games under that.

This would also help people who are looking to find the online action.

Btw it would be awesome of Pulse was somehow integrated into the XMB, and not just a weekly video we download.

+ tirminyl on December 5th, 2008 at 7:35 pm said:

Watched this earlier today and commented on it in the PSForums. Very nice. This is great for providing summaries of what is available on the Playstation Network. I liked that the Prince of Persia classic was featured when speaking about the latest Prince of Persia release.

As mentioned on this blog post and within the forums, this should definitely be featured on the PS3 as it’s own application or within the Life with Playstation App. Allow us to launch a Playstation Network app that streams the feed to us or make a permanent link on the info bar. If Microshock (post #3) is anything to go by, featuring this in a more open spot can definitely get more people into the store.


32

+ tirminyl on December 5th, 2008 at 7:37 pm said:

@ SpookyJuice- Great idea! Not only do I like seeing and hearing what the top downloaded content is but I would like to hear what the top online games are for the week as well. Sony doesn’t have to release numbers but at least let us know what the top online titles are.

shes pretty hot. i like asian americans.

+ Masterofallz on December 5th, 2008 at 7:38 pm said:

I hope its free. Sony, at least give us this free…


35

+ Nymo on December 5th, 2008 at 7:41 pm said:

Nice!

One question: How can we watch PULSE on the PSP?
Is there a way to watch it on my PSP now? I’d like to watch on my computer, but it’s rather choppy on my computer…

anyways, Keep up the great work!


36

+ jayyy91 on December 5th, 2008 at 7:47 pm said:

You guys should put this in the Home Theatre.


37

+ Clinton514 on December 5th, 2008 at 7:49 pm said:

Looks like you have to launch your web browser in your PSP then bookmark the page. I thought it would be a download, but this is good enough for me.

+ onisat on December 5th, 2008 at 7:50 pm said:

Seems like a cool idea can’t wait to see how it developes


39

+ digplans on December 5th, 2008 at 7:57 pm said:

This kind of thing should be included in Home videos just playing in the background. If not, it would be a big miss. I’m almost sure they plan on integrating this kind of stuff in Home, maybe even this blog.

No info on Home though? Really? Your silence does not impress me, it’s like a big middle finger up my arse, and then presented to my face. I’m completely serious as i’m saying this.

+ jrriddle on December 5th, 2008 at 7:57 pm said:

Mildly entertaining, Qore lite. I’ll watch it but mostly for Christina Lee.
No problem watching it on the PS3, could not get it on my PSP where I would like to see it since Qore is not available on remote play.


41

+ tekm0sis on December 5th, 2008 at 7:58 pm said:

How is it possible to watch this on the psp without using remote play, I repeat, without using remote play?


42

+ JohnnyMoses on December 5th, 2008 at 7:58 pm said:

Hey! I can’t watch it on my iPhone! Not good!


43

+ GanjaQueen on December 5th, 2008 at 7:59 pm said:

@ 35,

Yeah, that is a good question b/c I tried to access playstation.com through my PSP to watch PULSE–but all I got was the large freakin’ announcement-like saying ‘Now access the PSN store from you PSP’ type of ad (which did leave too much room for nothing else). :(

Would’ve been cool to look at from my PSP.


44

+ Totobeni on December 5th, 2008 at 8:00 pm said:

hello , you should put this on Playstation Store yet ( SD and HD ) , it will be good for PSn users to see what new on the Playstation Store this why .

Cool!


46

+ XxBigP123xX on December 5th, 2008 at 8:07 pm said:

Wow, that was surprisingly good.

Make a XMB icon and put this under Playstation Network next.

Yays!! We (the PlayStation community) have our own correspondents now! Way to make me feel all special on an otherwise mediocre day! Thank you and PLEASE have a good weekend. Between this and Killzone 2 footage you should be proud enough to sleep easy for two days at least. :D

very very good, i like it a lot but pulse needs to be in playstation store and in playstation home , that way it’ll be getting on more playstation fans , very very good, this is what sony needs

See now Sony needs to do something similar for the commercials instead of wasting the time and money advertising things most of us already know about. Just something for Sony to think about.
