Nice update, hungry for the inFamous demo… keep pushing and releasing more Psone classics, please.

KazeEternal said:

Looks like the flood gate is opening PSOne titles FTW!!!

EOGamer said:

May 21st, 4:48 pm

Uh, nevermind. Now I know for a fact that R6 is not a classic.

To highlight my point of quality control being needed.

http://www.gamespot.com/ps/action/rainbowsix/index.html?tag=result;title;8

Rainbow Six 3.7 “Bad”

“The control is best described as “awkward.” The left analog stick moves your character forward, back, and from side-to-side, and the right turns your character. Your highly–trained, hardened soldier has an amusing proclivity for getting caught on doors frames. At times, you must crouch to get through a normal-sized opening – these Rainbows must be tall. At any rate, press forward – to more walking and killing! This game is simply about military men with boring guns in ugly places saving ugly people. Awkwardly. “Aesthetically bankrupt” is not an inapplicable phrase, here.”

Stop crediting companies for poor/lack of support.

These updates are terrible.

LokeSTL said:

May 21st, 4:49 pm

@Phillip_J_Fry

Well spoken. I also have two PS3s in the house. The ability to play the games on both my machines is why Sony gets my money and Nintendo doesn’t. I have bought ZERO virtual console games because I refuse to buy games that I can’t play on the systems in my house once I own them no matter how inexpensive they may be.

rysamson said:

May 21st, 4:54 pm

In response to “illegal” game sharing.”

Whoever said it earlier was right: the fact that you can ‘share’ that PSN game up to about 5 or so PS3 consoles was an admitted feature with the playstation. I think even Jack Trenton acknowledged it, saying something to the effect that he/Sony wanted the games Sony had to offer to as many people’s hands as possible, so that’s why you can ‘share’ games, so long as the account that bought the game is on console.

It might not be the best practice, but it’s certainly not illegal, especially when people at Sony acknowledge it.

KazeEternal said:

May 21st, 4:58 pm

man Christina Lee knows how to rub the salt into the wound with the Terminator stuff in pulse…. Going to miss Sara Conner Chronicles :(

To bad Sony couldn’t pick it up for the PS Store exclusively. That would be epic, but my hopes lie with the Sci Fi Channel.

@104 Xbox I believe still charges $20.00 a month subscription for their premium services. Give credit where credit is due the PS3 service is free!!!!

rgoff31 said:

Red Faction Multiplayer Demo???????

EOGamer said:

May 21st, 5:04 pm

@108

XBL is $50 a year, not $20 a month. Where did you get that number?

DiabloNeonX said:

May 21st, 5:04 pm

@108

Sure PSN is free, but is that any excuse for them to suck?

Increasing delayed updates, lousy customer service, etc…

I would GLADLY pay for PSN if it meant an improved experience.

StalkingSilence said:

May 21st, 5:08 pm

5/5! Woo! I guessed the Up demo also!

KazeEternal said:

May 21st, 5:11 pm

@111
I’m sorry where are you getting your facts?

Customer service was expedient and helpful in all avenues when concerning my PS3. Including when I had to have my PS3 replaced and in handling my issues with the PSN.

The service is also rarely down and I have to ask what they “increasing delayed updates” are? What is it that they promised us that has been delayed?

I’m seeing alot of misguided discontent.

@110
It’s 50 dollars a year if you’re just getting XBL, you still have to pay for Netflix and any other service NOT included in XBL. Basically you’re stacking cost. PSN gives a far richer experience then XBL Marketplace and a frequently updated selection in purchasable and rentable movies.

Wow, a new update already? I’m still blasting my way through R-Type Delta. And more Christina Lee too!? OMG

Kinda disappointed about the absence of the Red faction: Guerrilla multiplayer demo in the US PSN store, when it should be there. :\

Hopefully they update it soon, like, before the end of the day?

zombie_56 said:

very nice update i’m loving the inFAMOUS demo ill definatly be buying infamous tuesday!

cell989 said:

May 21st, 5:22 pm

nice more PS1 classics, now whos buying Ford Racing???? lol we want PS1 classics, but not the crap that was left over, we want real classics.

gamestopper09 said:

May 21st, 5:25 pm

I think this is the best PS store update ever. You have Infamous demo, classic games, themes, and LBP add-ons. Wow. Thank you so much, sony!

DiabloNeonX said:

May 21st, 5:33 pm

@113

The PSN updates have been arriving steadily later and later since the interface was updated since last April. That’s where my discontent came from.

As for the lousy customer service, I called Sony last weekend due to an issue I was having backing up and replacing my hard drive and the guy I talked to on the phone was no help at all.

I still want an answer to my previous post (#92).

There’s been very little the PS3 has been able to offer me gaming experience wise (both PSN and BD-ROM Format games). This week really is no exception. If it weren’t for the fact that I have a backwards compatible model, I probably would have sold my PS3 by now.

DiabloNeonX said:

May 21st, 5:35 pm

@113

It’s nothing content wise that is delayed. Before the new interface, the PSN store would update around 5pm EDT (sometimes earlier), now it’s 7pm (on a good day) or later.

EOGamer said:

May 21st, 5:36 pm

@123

Those games are not classic.

Azira013 said:

May 21st, 5:38 pm

The guy in inFamous makes Darth Sidious look like a pansy.

libregkd said:

May 21st, 5:47 pm

While the PS1 games aren’t at all classics, I think the fact that Sony has updated the PS1 for three weeks in a row for the first time is a huge step into providing weekly updates.

Even when we get some classic games like MGS and some FF people are still going to complain. Jsut change “Why no PS1 games!” to “Why did you not put up the game I wanted!”

Also, to the person who says the PS3 has no RPGs. Have you looked and the upcoming games? There are FIVE RPGs coming out this Fall, and a Fan service RPG (Cross Edge) coming out this month/June. Yeah, there are not many RPGs on teh PS3 right now, but hell we are getting alot this year.

DNA-Pel said:

May 21st, 5:53 pm

Best update of the year. With a lot of content and good demos. That’s what i’m talking about :D

Thanks!

Krazy_Tazmanius said:

May 21st, 5:55 pm

Sony you deserve praise! Three weeks of amazing PSN updates! Demos, PSOne Classics, Addons, let’s hope the momentum continues from here!

phinnv8 said:

May 21st, 6:00 pm

I’m pretty confused by this LBP Monsters pack, wouldn’t this be a better release in October? There should be some kind of spring/summer pack now with tropical settings and stuff

EVanHelsing said:

May 21st, 6:05 pm

I just played some of the inFAMOUS demo… The style of the intro is nice – kind of like the Dead Space Animated Comic. But I had a bit of a laugh when the game started – for “the city fell apart” and “thefts, rapes” described in the intro, there are a lot of pedestrians and taxis going about their daily business on the streets at the start of the game-play part!

But overal I just can’t feel good about playing inFAMOUS knowing that, if circumstances were different, I could be playing a demo for a PS3 Sly Cooper game right now! I’m sorry, but I’ve had my fill of sandbox games set in dark dingy cities, I personally would much prefer a new Sly Cooper game.

Also on the update, the Sky Crawlers movie looks very good.

inFamous demo!
Great day to be PlayStation owner!

May 21st, 6:17 pm

Finally I got to taste the game I’ve been looking forward to for nearly 2 years. Really enjoyed the inFAMOUS demo. It cemented my faith in the game which I had already preordered a month ago. Can’t wait to explore the entire Empire City next week!

Also, keep bringing more PS1 titles for god’s sake! We need Final Fantasies. FF VII and IX are two of my most favourite in the series.

whats up with the red text and where is the red faction multiplayer demo because i just looked in the demos section and its no there and its 9:16pm
the store got updated around 6:00pm

mixenitup said:

@132 LOL sly cooper is not in dark environments? Just colorful characters. Sly cooper is part sandbox for many portions of the game as well. I give kudos to them for trying something new. One you are a one trick pony your work becomes stagnant and repetitive very quickly for both devs and gamers.

Hey Sony, Its called “PSone Classics” not “PSone Shovelware that can be found on eBay for $1”.

Oh and it looks like you’re planning to Stream your E3 Press confrence inside Home. The way you plan on doing it is horrible. Who in their right mind wants to watch the press confrence in a common area with 10,000 other people constantly texting and dancing?

If you gave us all Free Bravias for our Home Space and let us invite friends to our Personal Space and watch it that way, that would be awesome.

The way you are planning on doing it is going to be a giant cluster@#$%.

EOGamer said:

May 21st, 7:01 pm

@128

I think branding people as “Why didn’t you put up the game i want” is unfair. With games like Bowling, R6, and Ford Racing, it isn’t about them outting up games I and a few others don’t want. It’s about putting up games NO ONE could possibly want. These games…. are REALLY BAD. I mean, terrible. Not games that aged poorly either, games that were poor from the word go. It’s just not logical for grabage like that to get greenlighted for release in the first place.

EOGamer said:

May 21st, 7:03 pm

@144

It’s a widely accepted alternative. I know a few people who still call a certain fighting game Virtual Fighter as well. It’s close enough.

Korbei83 said:

May 21st, 7:16 pm

@145

I doubt Sony chooses the PSone classics to put up other than those published by SCEA (Speaking of which, Final Fantasy VII was published by SCEA, maybe someone should figure that out)

Anyway, if developers of crappy old games want to put their PS1 crap up for sale and will pay the associated bandwidth fees, why wouldn’t they put it up?

What stores do you frequent that sell only amazing merchandise with absolutely nothing that doesn’t interest you?

PSN is a business. It is a retail outlet. It’s not Sam’s Club and you’re NOT a member.

krae_man said:

May 21st, 7:21 pm

@Korbei83

We are all PSN members:p

Bad analogy.

Sony does have the final say if PSone games go up or not. That’s the whole reason we got squat for 2 and a half years.

This is like Sony. We beg them for PSone games for over 2 years then they give us crap on purpose so they can say “You complain when we dont give you PSone Games, and you complain when we DO give you PSone games”

katsuo7171 said:

May 21st, 7:31 pm

So we’re not getting a reply to the red faction demo not being up…… Nice job guys. Always missing out on the good stuff. Gta IV lost and the damned FF XIII. Keep giving em up Sony see what happens.
