This is ridiculous. It’s one bad thing to screw up and not have a game ready that you’ve advertised, but then it’s another to not even address it in the update post. Where is Lumines? When is it going up? It shouldn’t have to wait until next Thursday. This is Sony’s screw up, so they need to make it right.

nice update at least its better than home still cant get on that since 1 pm pt

Home not working :-(, fix it!!!!!!


54

+ rez33 on December 11th, 2008 at 5:53 pm said:

Where is Lumines Supernova? Why did you announce on Pulse that it would be released today? Very disappointing day from Sony, along with Home not working. I hate to be negative, but this is pretty bad.

Again, where is Lumines Supernova?


55

+ harrykid32 on December 11th, 2008 at 6:05 pm said:

Things the ps/sony needs to fix.
Home….Can’t connect to the servers.
Avatars…..Custom avatars would be sick.
Information board on the xmb….Does anyone really use it? Seriously…..Its late with everything it says….They need to put some n4g news on it or something.


56

+ GuyaneseG on December 11th, 2008 at 6:09 pm said:

yes the information board on the xmb does need an upgrade of some sort.

What’s in the Star Wars Character Pack 2? Is it the same stuff that comes in the Apprentice Mission?

i seldom get upset with delays from sony, BUT WHERE is lumines, i was waiting for this !!@ Isnt it announced that it will arrive today?!

I too was looking forward to buying Lumines today.

How disappointing.

I just heard Savage Moon got delayed as well. Great job.

Is the resistance price drop for America only?


65

+ Stoffinator on December 11th, 2008 at 6:51 pm said:

I guess we won’t be seeing any demos for awhile? Being there are no games coming out for awhile.


66

+ lumines on December 11th, 2008 at 6:54 pm said:

lumines? :(

why advertise it in PULSE and then no release?

next week plz


67

+ SantanaClaus89 on December 11th, 2008 at 6:57 pm said:

Congratulations, Sony on finding new and exciting ways to disappoint your customers with even more delays.

You told us on Pulse last week that Lumines was coming today. Instead you give us that crap game that no one has ever heard of. Thanks. For nothing.


68

+ easyaspie00 on December 11th, 2008 at 7:02 pm said:

$5.99 for the LBP Costumes!?!?! Ugh…
Well, they are unique, and I thank MM for continuous support for the costumes, so I guess I really have no say.

I will be picking up that new Santa Suit though! :)

Maybe a few themes and videos as well…

What no Demo’s? Again?

Post 23:

Where’s Lumines?

That was announced in the PULSE episode.

Ro Hernandez replied on December 11, 2008 at 6:28 pm

Coming Soon…

How much does Sony pay these people? What kind of reply is that? This tells us nothing. What is going on, and when is Lumines Supernova going to be released?


71

+ LordChocoSlime on December 11th, 2008 at 7:19 pm said:

I wasn’t expecting much of an update for the PSP section of the PS Store this week, but I was surprised to see 4 new videos added. Granted, that may not seem like much, but at least it’s much better than having no updates for the PSP section. Plus, I was a bit curious about that Brain Challenge, so it’s nice being able to see footage of that game now. Thanks for the update.


72

+ surgesnugs on December 11th, 2008 at 7:25 pm said:

I agree with post #70

Lumines goes from coming out this week to just “coming soon?” This is just complete crap. Sony, you jerk your customers around way too much. I’ve already bought your console this generation, so I guess I’m stuck with it, but seriously, when I’m ready to up to the next gen of consoles, whenever that is, all this BS is going to cost you.


73

+ Ramage on December 11th, 2008 at 7:30 pm said:

I don’t know whats with the low score on this post but this is one of the best updates in a while although we are still lacking in PSONE TITLES as usual.

Other than that the amount of content is great. You are missing one game you said you’d have but I saw you comment on that already. I’ve been very vocal about my disappointment over the last months updates but this one is def good.

still…MOAR PSONE PLEEZ.


74

+ Ramage on December 11th, 2008 at 7:33 pm said:

I would also like to thank Insomniac for the R2 themes. I have not changed my theme since the SFIV: Summer 08 Theme because I liked the sound so much. That’s what sells most themes to me, the unique sounds AS WELL AS unique logos. Logos alone aren’t enough to do it and honestly I like the sound differential better and with these new ones I have three to choose from. THANKS INSOM!


75

Thanks for the Santa! Hey…..please make sure that PS3 doesn’t quite download PSN connection when playing optical media.

Thanks for the free Resistance maps! Sony FTW!!

More PS1 Classics like Resident Evil games and Rayman 2 and Silent Hill!!! All the classics!


77

+ Psycho_analytic on December 11th, 2008 at 8:47 pm said:

Where’s the demos Sony. I want more demos. and where are the HD version of the movies. What is the point of having a movie store where majority of the movies to buy are SD only.


78

+ WHAT on December 11th, 2008 at 9:20 pm said:

Last week when you gave out the free Qore episode, the same people that complained that they would have pay to get into stuff, were the same people that said they would not buy Qore for “stupid demos and themes”. If I was the PSN team I would be really pissed off that you go through all that trouble to make it so others have a chance to grab the goods and they than slaps you in the face. Anyway the store and most of the things in it are fantastic.


79

+ Wuggyboobeaufuf on December 11th, 2008 at 9:38 pm said:

If I didn’t have a 60gb, I’d have sold my PS3 by now.

This is just ridiculous.

I never thought I’d say this, but being a Sony supporter sucks.


80

+ thaddeus on December 11th, 2008 at 10:27 pm said:

oh my God, stop whining. There is nothing worse than whiny internet people. Things get delayed, it happens. Maybe it was to fix a huge bug at the last minute? If they released it on time with bugs you’d still be up her complaining, but you’d probably complain even more because paid for a game that crashes more than Mass Effect for the PC does.

I’d rather wait for a more pefect, stable game than have to wait for a patch to come out before I can even play.


81

+ Jeigh on December 11th, 2008 at 10:35 pm said:

Jesus, there are a lot of whiners today. Get something for nothing and then complain that it’s not worth anything? I’m failing every single one of you for being such greedy little… ‘people.’

PowerUp Forever! I have been waiting for that one, thank you!


83

+ venneer on December 11th, 2008 at 11:47 pm said:

On a note, it is because you people complain so much about games being delayed that they are rushed out and/or ruined, and that developers are starting to think that it is okay to release incomplete games to patch over later (never).


84

+ KUSHman666 on December 12th, 2008 at 12:13 am said:

ya venneer ur speakin the truth bro. ppl need to stop whining. go buy a xbox if ur gunna be such a @#$%@% sonys doing a great job. R2 is amazing LBP owns. mgs4 is game of the year no doubt. socom is awesome but rushed cause of whiners who cant wait uncharted is fun as a mofo. warhawk is insane ;) wipeout hd looks absolutly amazing and the list goes on… sony is the premier game company next to nintendo M$ cant compete with sony on quality or anything.

+ kingv84 on December 12th, 2008 at 2:02 am said:

At all the people telling others to “stop whining delays happen”. Ok, yeah I understand delays happen, but with Sony it is tradition to have delays every time. This generation for PS3 has been filled with more delays then any I have remembered. I was looking forward lumines and now the only response we get is “coming soon”. That is BS because you have advertised it for today and you only give your customer the finger with that response. Cheap.


88

+ kingv84 on December 12th, 2008 at 2:08 am said:

At @84 The “other system” does not use 16 GB of space. You are confusing DVD with HD DVD. The other system uses DVDs which most of their games take 9GB.

@2
HAHA Your not First or Firts LOL

On Topic good update, but I wish there was a demo for this PowerUp Forever game as I have never heard of it.

@39
You want stuff RIGHT now so Sony puts it out as fast as they can and you get launches like you described so you are creating your own demise.

@3 & @4 & @12 & @28 & @45 & @47 & @48
You guys cry to get into the Home BETA let me repeat that for you BETA. Now you cry because it doesn’t work as you expected.
This is why it took Home so long and it will take a lot longer because you don’t put this in the right forums and you don’t explain the problem so it can be fixed.

@22
Thank you!
Finally someone with some sense makes a post!
Nice to see some intelligent people enjoy PlayStation as well.

@50
For third party PS1 titles you need to bother the third party publisher NOT Sony otherwise nothing will get done. So go bother them publishers of your favorite PS1 games.


96

+ Enforcer_X on December 12th, 2008 at 5:33 am said:

@53
There is a forum for that.

@79
I will buy your 60GB PS3 I could use a third one.

@80 & @81 & @83 & @84
Thank you for your posts!
Agreed!
At least some people that come here still have sense!

Thanks for the new videos on the PSP store but any word from SCEE on if the WipEout: Pulse content will ever come out in the US at all? We WipEout: Pulse fans have been waiting for a long time and it would be nice to get the content for both Killzone: Liberation, and WipEout: Pulse as well as Monster Hunter on there! Maybe even the Burnout Dominator content as well?
