    Coffee and donuts: yes. GT PSP doesn\’t fit the theme. I believe we\’ll have some PSPgo units on the show floor, however.

Hey Jeff, did you guys record a God of War III interview at Gamescom?

There isn’t too much going around with GoW3 lately, than just few pictures from Gamescom. :’(

Why not tell the Development team to create another in-game engine footage?

Hey Jeff thanks for the update! I have a question though on the status of the ps store e-mailing issue I told you about last week. Any fix yet? Btw, this problem can happen with any e-mailing service; msn/live hotmail, gmail, or yahoo. Thanks Jeff!

Jeff, do you remember the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift photo competition that was posted here on the blog back in mid-march? Well, I was ‘fortunate’ to be one of the twenty North American winners. Evolution Studios stated that “Winners will be notified via email within 28 days of the competition Closing Date and must respond within 28 days of receiving the notification to claim their prize.” Well the winners were announced May 18, and still nobody has been contacted or received their prize(s). Can you help do something about this? I’ve been posting on their forums, but this has done virtually nothing. I’ve tried to be patient with this competition, but with over 3 months of no contact or prizes, it’s hard to be patient or ever respect the developers anymore.

Also, what’s with the new PS3 game boxes? They’re SO ugly!

regarding 3.0, I think it should release with a few new avatars. Eric Lempel said in a interview, that new avatars wont hit with 3.0 but at a later date.

This news come as disappointing. Theres people out there that are most looking forward to the new avatars out of anything else on 3.0 (which shows the sad state of the current poor selection) that will be dissapointed come tuesday.

You got a lot of criticism for releasing the trophy patch with only one game supporting it at launch. The same thing will happen after announcing 3.0 has new themes and avatars that wont come till October.

@bball230
Just hover over the player and click the little “block” tab that pops up. Towards the top change “blocking filter” to “exception rule”, and you will never have to worry about this anymore

@Jeff
I suggest recommending this method to people who continue to post about the player flickering for them.

Its good to see that PlayStation reads the stories I do in the media.

@Jeff:
I have an email issue and I was told you may be able to help. The problem is that, I used to receive emails from Playstation such as the weekly newsletter and beta invitations, but now for a few months I haven’t received anything. The problem actually started after changing my email address. My old email addresses account was deleted so I had to change my email address on my PSN and PSU account to my new email addresses. I have ensured that I did change my email address correctly (spelling ect.) and I have also ensured that Playstation messages are not being filtered as junk, however I still do not receive the emails. The email service provider for my PSN account is Gmail and the email service provider for my PSU account is Rogers (My ISP). Can you (or somebody else) help me solve this problem? I already contacted support via email and phone but both were no help to me. I also want to subscribe to Qore but I am afraid too because I might miss an important email regarding Qore benefits.

Thanks

Any idea if Soul Calibur: BD is going to be available digitally on the PSN? I really want to get it, but I’m hooked on digital d/l PSP titles, so I doubt I’ll pick up the UMD. I imagine a high-profile PSP title like this will be on the network considering the PSP Go is coming soon, but a little confirmation on its downloadable status would be nice… :) Thanks.

@ pscoolman (and Jeff- 20)

Do you honestly think that by being in the entertainment business Jeff (and the rest of PSBlog) isn’t entitled to a five-day work-week like everyone else? Don’t be so self-centered. Honestly, I’d find it hilarious if on Thursday they made a post saying “Pscoolman, in his infinite wisdom, has insisted that we work on weekends, so we’ve taken those pesky Store Updates and shoved them back to a time that works better for him: Saturdays! Let the lynching begin!” I think I’d actually pay to see that. XD
