PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Mar 21, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

I’d like to personally thank the PlayStation community (this means you) for your staggering level of involvement this past week. Whether it was participating in the new PlayStation.Blog Share, submitting your God of War III launch pic on Twitter, or RSVPing to our PlayStation Move hands-on community events, you all have been awesome.

BTW, we’ve still got more room for New Yorkers on Tuesday and Bostonians on Thursday, so please RSVP today.

And thanks to the many God of War III reviews, PlayStation Move impressions, and lingering GDC stories, the Blog Reading List is again bursting at the seams…

See you on the East Coast!

Congratulations on God Of War 3 Sony and everyone at PlayStation and Sony Santa Monica. Because God Of War 3 was hands down the best game I have ever played. I’m going to go back and finish all the challenge modes and play through the story on Titan mode because beating it once is just not enough the game was just so gorgeous looking I need to play it again.

@Jeff
Have you guys considered bringing in volunteer help for the PS Blog Share?

I’m reading through the damn things anyway and I wouldn’t mind weeding out duplicates as I did so and I’m sure there are others who feel the same way.

    We’re going to add a ‘flag this as duplicate/flag for content’ functionality, but it’ll take a bit of time to roll out. Probably do that with Blog comments as well sometime this year…

Great news week

Hey Jeff, do you know how the guys at Sony are liking the wanted features and ideas in the Share section? Hopefully they’re taking note how much people want Cross Game Chat (Just broke 10,000 positive “Yes” votes) and PS2 Emulation (nearing 10,000 “Yes” votes) :)

@ Jeff

I really hope you can answer me this, i bought God of War 3 first day on the 16th the ultimate edition and as you know you get 3 codes, everything worked fine except for the Soundtrack code, whenever i put it on the store it says to me invalid, is there something wrong on why i cant redeem it? i live in Canada by the way, could that be the reason?

Thank you and looking forward for an answer

I’m still playing God of War III on Titan mode. This game is easily a system seller. You guys should’ve made God of War III PS3 bundles. You would’ve sold so many systems to hardcore gamers who haven’t picked up a PS3 yet.

i certainly going to pick up 3.dot heroes and lunar silverstar harmony next month.cuz i am already low on cash after i pre-ordered mimana iyar chronicle (psp title) and sakura wars so long my love (ps2)

jeff, its really a shame that sakura wars is the last rpg/stragergy title for the ps2. because i feel that there are titles in japan that could have been ported over.if only, the publishers and scea were flexible enough.i strongly feel that the ps2 should have at least a couple of years more of life not only because of its huge catalog but also its games cheap prices :0

as for the share blog i hope my idea makes it in time before someone comes up with the same one XD

@ Jeff

I think I only got about 5 of the 10 Godly Treasures.

I have a 55% completion rate on the trophies so I have some work to do still.

I was playing it on Hard Mode and then my brother went and changed it to easy mode after he snuck on my saved game :(. So It will be a pretty big challenge beating the game on Chaos mode.

Hey Jeff there are alot of people having problems playing God of War 3 their have been some minor glitches and there have been some major glitches that you can’t play the game anymore the game freezes up on you and you can’t play it at all. This topic is everywhere in the godofwar3 forums and we are trying everything to get you guys attention so this can be fixed and we can continue playing this game we just need to hear something back from sony letting us know that they are aware of the situation or already working on a solution to fix this.

Here is a forum of most of the problems that people are having including me

Hey Jeff why isn’t sony mandating that all psp games being made on umd are also have a digital download copy for it for pspgo only owners. it really pisses me off that sony support for the pspgo is terrible hell the games in the store that been out for over a year we are still being charged full price it’s like going digital only also comes with a very bad price of it’s own. also i’m really upset that kingdom hearts birth by sleep is umd only & don’t give me that crap that its up to the publishers cause i know damn well u guys can get these games on the store u just are scared of pissing them off even though they don’t have a problem pissing off the entire playstation community & don’t act dumb cause u know what i’m talking about

    If you want to see a non-SCE game on the PlayStation Store, make sure to let the publishers know.

Just wanted to give you and your fellow co-workers props for all the good work you guys are doing in regards to the interaction with your customers, to be specific, the Share section took me by surprise, I cant help but feel a true community rising on the PSN.

I have been following this blog and the forums since I bought my ps3 in 2008 and I’m just loving this blog not just because I own a ps3, but because I love games, and the love of games just shows in everyone’s post here. (i love the Playstation conversation)

ps: I really like your videos, even though you work for sony, you go out of your way to be unbiased, and I think that is most important.

What a great week to be a playstation owner.. God of war 3 was great!! The end was very appropriate considering how the series started. It was more of an bloodly intense moment than a surprise. Sorry if i said too much. Ultimate Edition was good too but could have been better if the Trilogy soundtrack were on CD but I guess download don’t cost a lot to make…

I am just wondering when I will get the Phatom of Chaos code. Does anyone know? Maybe tomorrow. I hope.

God of War best game series ever!!

Ah, it’s probably too late for you to see this, but do you think the blog could do something special for the Sakura Wars release on the 30th? To us, at least, it’s looking like it’ll be the last major PS2 game released in the U.S.

That, and it’s kind of a big deal for fans of Japanese games in general. The Sakura Wars series is (was!) legendary for being one of the biggest Japanese franchises to never get localized.
