Has there been any thought put into possibly changing the Qore subscriptions delivery method? It’s a bit of a hassle to have to scroll through my considerable download list, to around the 60 – 80th item range just to find the latest issue.


+ gadwiin on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:33 pm said:

Will download Comet Crash. Co-op offline gaming ftw.


+ Netweb on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:35 pm said:

Patapon LBP Costume and K2 4D on Europeans Stores!


+ Zezzler on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:36 pm said:

could have been better… epsecially if there were more PSone titles!!! and if peggle, crystal deffenders, and Bomberman Ultra got a release date (a real one), that would be terrific.


+ Vengeful-Chaos on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:37 pm said:

I wish SCEA dropped PS1 games like SCEJ.


+ Jewdo on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:38 pm said:

you guys are really sucking on the lack of PSOne Classics

you need to stop breaking promises


+ ADR143 on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:38 pm said:

small update?


+ Azured_Scorpio on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:39 pm said:

Funny, I was expecting a RE5 update, but with Qore out… Never mind!


+ tbisley on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:40 pm said:

Just create a worldwide PSN and all these “US Only”, “Europe Only” problems will all go away…


+ Insyt on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:41 pm said:

I was hoping we’d see a GH Metallica Demo, or some game demo…patience is of a virtue…



+ Stuffgamer1 on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:42 pm said:

No PS1 games, and no Crystal Defenders, AGAIN?!? What the bleep is Sony’s PROBLEM?

And all my money goes to Nintendo AGAIN, just because Sony doesn’t seem to want it.


+ Tresyn on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:46 pm said:

screw demos and this in game cross game crap the masses keep whinning for. sony needs to stick pumping triple A games and some dlc that someone would actually want to buy


+ D1rk-Knight on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:49 pm said:

No PS1 classic?! oh well I guess I’m forced to stick with the shooters for another week. -___-“


+ bahamutXr79 on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:49 pm said:

not bad, I wish the LBP costumes were free, I’ve already splurged a good amount of cash on these awesome costumes lol. I don’t need any demos now Sony, so you’re off the hook :P I’m quite busy playing all the great games that came out the past month.


+ RogueCommando on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:56 pm said:

Well, Its good that we are seeing psp games on the store every week. However, action games like ratchet secret agent clank retribution would all be way better. Progress is being made…


+ BlindMango on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:56 pm said:

the “Behind the Bullet” thing is pretty cool.


+ Wolverine1977 on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:58 pm said:

Horrible update.


+ Cocoreccho on April 2nd, 2009 at 2:59 pm said:

Where is Valkyria Chronicles DLC?! :[


+ HanSolo on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:00 pm said:

no moreeeeeeee, enoughhhhhhhhhhhh, where are the ps1 GAMES? where?????????????


+ vesra on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:00 pm said:

so this is twice you’ve given out free issues of qore, and what do you do to make it up to the annual subscribers that have been so since day one without so much as a sneak peek into what we were paying for….not a **** thing. having dealt with all the problems and lack of extra promised content, i must say i am not looking to renew in two months when my subsription runs out. giving us games we already have, giving away free issues. where does the hurting end? these next two “episodes” better wow the poop outta me or you’ll have yet another irate user on your ever growing list of irate users. thanks alot for…..hmmm, my mind draws a blank. wonder why.


+ ThreeLeggedFreak on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

Where are the PS1 games that were promised?


+ BigPoppaB on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

damn,, two week in a row the PS update isnt even worth connecting to internet for


+ Cocoreccho on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

WHERE IS THE Valkyria Chronicles DLC?!!!!


+ TwinDad on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:


The free download this week for Qore does not include the game or other downloadables normally included with qore. You are getting the extra content you have been promissed.


+ FIGIHTER on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:



+ Fukoz on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:13 pm said:

Still waiting for the Valkyria Chronicles DLC… -_-


+ C-Murph666 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:13 pm said:

+ jsm142008 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:17 pm said:

+ darkclouds01 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:18 pm said:

thanks for the free qore. we deserved after a weak 2.70 update.


+ mykevermin on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:19 pm said:

You just shouldn’t have updated a damned thing today. For as bad as this update is, I’d rather see “we all clocked out 3 hours early today for $1.50 PBR pints at the Cheese Castle, so no update today.”

Knowing you were drunk at least provides a subtext for your overall incompetence.


+ darkclouds01 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:20 pm said:

thanks for the free qore. we deserved it after the weak 2.70 update


+ skincarver on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:21 pm said:

all the mlb themes and we still can’t get a phillies theme…not like they’re the reigning champs or anything…oh wait


+ zoahporre on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:22 pm said:

bah…no demos.

Where the hell is Dark Mist? Why can it not be brought to NA..its already in English.

And minor suggestion..please please please, add the little checkout bags to the videos that we’ve already downloaded.

There are SO many videos in the store now that its hard to tell what youve downloaded and what you have not.


+ The_Punisher111 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:26 pm said:

YAY!! FINALLY!! ANOTHER Qore EPISODE FREE!!!! Everything else is pathetic


+ remanutd5 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:31 pm said:

wow im really excited about Infamous and all these music episodes should be in the playstation store for everyone to download , its really nice to see all these videos about music and tv spot (killzone2) very nice , keep it up , i know its nothing new (music videos) but very nice regardless


+ remanutd5 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:32 pm said:

in fact i think they should be in pulse , i think sony should have its own video game tv program


+ remanutd5 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:33 pm said:

show thats what i meant to say lol


+ eratyptin on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:40 pm said:

I rarely complain, but this update is horrible….where are the PS1 Classics?? Where are the PS Eye games? Where are the demos? Come on Sony! I am a dedicated user and Sony fan, but it seems like it has been years since we have seen a new PS1 Classic or PS Eye game…….


+ Watchmann on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:48 pm said:

@77 Jays themes were last week. You should be able to find the PSP & PS3 themes in the store right now. For whatever reason, I prefer the PSP version. Not sure why.

Will get the Quore DL, and the R&C sneak peak(My daughter’s going to love it :)


+ SonicTHP on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:50 pm said:

So any word on that Sonic Unleashed DLC?

Europe and Japan get it, but North America seems to be left in teh cold…


+ AvoidTalkingMice on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:51 pm said:

Once again,

No PS1 Games
No LBP Level Pack
No Demos

No Download
Sony, get your stuff together – this is getting old.


+ Mattimeoo on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

Will those with annual subscription have an extension of two episodes due to this being the second one that is being distributed free? We paid for it . . . we deserve an extension.


+ dehumanizer_666 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:56 pm said:

still waiting for bomberman…


+ boss_313 on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:59 pm said:

+ LLAMACODE on April 2nd, 2009 at 4:07 pm said:
