Can’t wait to find out what Sony’s big announcement on Tuesday will be.

No link, copy and paste.

Cool beans even if you don’t add the HTML it still shows up as a clickable link, go figure.

Killzone 2 is a fantastic game but online would be a ton better if they lowered the players to 24. 32 is just a cluster F of people running around everywhere and made me go back to Bad Company.

2.7 is coming soon, right….right…?

Things that matter most:

Universal Game Invites
Voice Messaging
Private Chat in-game
Allow two or more users to sign on PSN the same time and let them both get trophies
Add Optional sound to notifications so when you are focused on the middle of the screen you know you got a new message or someone came online
symbols and numbers that represent friends online and messages sent somewhere on the XMB and beside message box
Auto Sync Trophies
More options on profiles
Report feature to report users, cheaters etc.
Faster loading XMB and profiles
More developed profiles
When you recieve a message you should be able to push the PSN button for it to automatically pop up as long as the notification is still there.

Friend Request should go on the top of the friends list instead of the bottom

View your friends’s friends
More Avatars
More details on what your friends are doing
XMB for PS2 games and movies
group friends like how u can group instant messaging friends( to oraganize people you met from certain games, online, school, etc.)
Join friend’s game button
More Color, everything is black and gray

Hey Jeff, hope you’re having a great weekend. Just wondering what ever happened to the Killzone 2 application that was supposed to come out in the store? We were supposed to be able to get an “indepth” view into the KZ2 commercial. Thanks!

Have you tried consumer services?
Complaining here wont do a damn thing
go to the ps3 website and find consumer services


+ Draicus on March 28th, 2009 at 12:37 pm said:

Lots of things to read this week what with GDC and all. Shame that we still don’t have new PSN Avatars though…


+ jakinov on March 28th, 2009 at 12:44 pm said:

I have many times D=. Sony claims( in interviews) they listen to their readers through their blog which is why I post it here :).


+ Vengeful-Chaos on March 28th, 2009 at 12:55 pm said:

@ phinnv8

I’m sorry but that’s such a sht excuse. There’s rooms where the max people is 24, and many of them show up everytime I do a search. If you don’t like the game or aren’t that very good at it say so don’t make up excuses, it’s not needed. They have room sizes that range from 1-32 and I always find rooms in any size.


+ disunion on March 28th, 2009 at 1:00 pm said:

yeah about the 32 people being too much. I usually pick rooms with 16 max just so the games last longer if it’s on 100 kill bodycount


+ BZKlint on March 28th, 2009 at 1:08 pm said:

Already submitted my R&C weapon design. :)


+ XKILLER44 on March 28th, 2009 at 1:14 pm said:

I want a video of firmware 2.70 please and features of 2.70 .


+ lebron_accel on March 28th, 2009 at 1:23 pm said:

Leaked gameplay of Uncharted 2 HURRY!


+ Zezzler on March 28th, 2009 at 1:26 pm said:

Great Week Jeff! I was really happy with all the stuff i saw at GDC this year (even though i live in Canada) and i can’t wait for E3!

I heard there might be a new Metal Gear!! hopefully it (if any) will be announced soon!


+ BigPoppaB on March 28th, 2009 at 1:36 pm said:

i cant really find any info about PJE Encore… I bought PJE, is there gonna be an add on pack i can buy or would i have to rebuy the game for new content?

Im not gonna rebuy the game but would get the DLC if it was free/reasonably priced

Hey there Chris. Thanks for the Blog meet up. Had a blast. Taking home the MGS4 Bundle was more than awesome.

Why no recap blog post about it, though?

Here’s my recap:

    Thanks. Check back tomorrow for a recap of the meet-up, and next week for even more highlights.


+ Griffins22 on March 28th, 2009 at 1:58 pm said:

Do you guys have anything to say about this announcement that’s coming on Tuesday?


+ Zezzler on March 28th, 2009 at 2:01 pm said:

Chris will we be hearing any news about PixelJunk #4 anytime soon? soon being within April.


+ katsuo7171 on March 28th, 2009 at 2:14 pm said:

@5 it is coming this week thursday, it was shown on GTTV with Geoff.

Also can anybody please tell me when we are going to recieve e-mails regarding the Loco Roco 2 Sweepstakes. Or have they already been sent out?


+ LukaX23 on March 28th, 2009 at 2:18 pm said:

Haha :P I reported some of those glitches for the next Killzone 2 patch :) Go Guerrilla!


+ LukaX23 on March 28th, 2009 at 2:24 pm said:

@ 17

Really? If so, how long through the episode? If this were true, people would be going crazy over the internet.


+ SmogItUp on March 28th, 2009 at 2:37 pm said:

Now Socom is being left out of the updates altogether. Sony stop neglecting one of your most beloved franchises. People grew up on Socom, stop destroying it.


+ mafecto on March 28th, 2009 at 2:37 pm said:


where’d you hear about an announcement?


+ The_Punisher111 on March 28th, 2009 at 2:41 pm said:

Were all gunna get rick n’ rolled! Why would they have gameplay of a game that does come out more than a half year away?


+ jakinov on March 28th, 2009 at 3:08 pm said:

@25 The Punisher111

it’s out on the internet… so is God of War 3 gameplay google it…


+ gold5225 on March 28th, 2009 at 3:15 pm said:

@17 its a awesome article but it says at the top of the blog that Chris’ name is spelled Morell no i at the end. congratulations on winning that awesome PS3.


+ Poopypirate on March 28th, 2009 at 3:16 pm said:

wish i could win a ps3 like that prick


+ gold5225 on March 28th, 2009 at 3:17 pm said:

@27 that didn’t come out right i mean the top of PS blog has his name spelled correctly (i would assume) but in your article under the picture you spelled his name Morelli.

Congrats on the PS3 again though :)


+ remanutd5 on March 28th, 2009 at 3:18 pm said:

Chris can you guys put the Ratchet and Clank: a Crank in Time teaser trailer in the playstation store ? thanks man


+ Thrasher20 on March 28th, 2009 at 3:35 pm said:

@ Ftwrthtx

So lucky, I saw the pics on Flickr. Nice article too.

Thanks for the recap Chris Morell. Oh and I finally beat President Devil 5 at 2:30 am :D


+ Pound_lb003 on March 28th, 2009 at 3:39 pm said:

I have never been addicted to an MP game.

Closest I got was with BF2, and that’s cus a friends would call me up and we’d go on sniping trips.

But I am having a hard time dropping Killzone 2. I’d never have thought it.


+ katsuo7171 on March 28th, 2009 at 4:19 pm said:

@22 Go to and then on the left hand side click on GT TV. Choose the latest episode and then watch it. It’s close to the end. I would post the link here but It has to get moderated on and won’t show up until tomorrow. Go to the forums I will post it in the Killzone 2 section.


+ JKar275 on March 28th, 2009 at 6:19 pm said:

Hi Chris! The PSXExtreme website is reporting that Sony will make a very important announcement this coming Tues. Mar. 31. Will it have anything to do with M.A.G?


+ katsuo7171 on March 28th, 2009 at 6:54 pm said:

@34 not likely most announcements about MAG will be made by Zipper. Especially when it’s the first info since E3 08.

My guess on big announcement is a FW update. **fingers crossed**


+ lcmnick on March 28th, 2009 at 7:18 pm said:

Chris, is this Sony announcement on Tuesday actually legit?

Why would Sony only tell Kotaku and not other sites?

Seems funny just to tell one site.


+ mafecto on March 28th, 2009 at 9:15 pm said:

The “Big Announcement” may be the ps2 price cut to $99. I’ve already seen Sears’ ad for the week of 4/5 and the PS2 is in there for…you guessed it…$99, with a huge “New Low Price!” banner right above it.


+ Enigma777 on March 28th, 2009 at 11:12 pm said:

Jeff, do you have any info on whether Ad-Hock party will ever come to the US?


+ acmilanboy on March 29th, 2009 at 7:07 am said:

All of us are getting really tired, at least give us the details of 2.70, we are long overdue. We wouldn’t feel this way if 2.60 contained something.
