The PlayStation Recap

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by Sid Shuman on May 29, 2010 // Senior Manager, Social Media

Happy Memorial Day! With the long weekend ahead, I’ll be catching up on Red Dead Redemption (if I can tear myself away from skinning animals long enough to complete the story missions), ModNation Racers, and 3D Dot Game Heroes. What will you guys be playing?

The PlayStation Recap – PlayStation.Blog

Play the MAG Beta with Zipper!

    Patch Alert: MAG v1.06 Coming in June: Slated for sometime next month, MAG v1.06 will add a number of requested new features to the game that should please fans regardless of their play style. Read on for the full list.
    Zipper Profile: CJ Heine: This week we meet up with CJ Heine, senior designer here at Zipper. CJ started in the QA department and worked his way up to his current senior designer position, so it shouldn’t be long before he’s heading up the CIA and while simultaneously juggling hosting duties on Survivor.

    REMINDER: “The Lab” and Double Cash Weekend: This weekend’s installment of “The Lab” Playlist series is 2 vs. 2 Team Deathmatch. Parties are limited to two people only, obviously. We’ve set the match conditions to a 15 minute time limit and 25 kills.
    Unboxing The Art of UNCHARTED 2: We got copies of all three versions in the studio recently and thought it was only fitting to take a bunch of photos and put together an unboxing video below so you can get a good look at what you get when purchasing The Art of Uncharted 2.
    UNCHARTED 2 PSN Avatars: The PSN Avatars were created from renders we made from UNCHARTED 2 and include Nathan Drake, Elena Fisher, Victor Sullivan, Chloe Frazer, Jeff, Tenzin, Karl Schafer, Zoran Lazarevic, Harry Flynn, and an image of the Phurba dagger.

I hate to stop by only to bemoan a gripe (sorry I’ve been absent), but I’m having trouble shaking the idea that Blog.Share isn’t garnering much/any attention If we could at least get some indication of which ideas are being looked at or worked on, it would alleviate the concern. Perhaps leave some of those refreshing red comments every once in awhile. (Honestly, the voting system feels like a national election: our votes don’t really matter. The same three ideas, which everyone already knows about, have been on top since the beginning, thus garnering more votes and keeping other ideas from getting front-page attention.)

I know this technically counts as a suggestion (a Share), but, you see, its kind of a cyclical problem.

Hope you have a good weekend.

    Please upload this idea to Share… just kidding :-) Totally valid observation and one that we’re doing something about, but we’ve obviously been slammed with E3 fast approaching. Currently, some enhancements are going into the Share backend. Post-E3, we’ll be talking more about it, so stay tuned!

Playing Red Dead as well. This game just totally consumes you.

Just ordered Yakuza 3 off Amazon since it finally went on sale. Will play that next. My PS3 hasn’t gotten a break at all this year…lol

Team Ico Collection (hopefully with the old, removed colossi) would be awesome. But I wouldn’t mind a Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, or Resident Evil collection either ;-)

So how long is the E3 conference on this year? Will it be 2 hours like last year? I need to bring snacks if it is the same as last year.

I’m seeing that planet minigolf is coming June 1 and tecmo bowl throwback a week later

is this true ? and is there going to be anything official or is it just another wait and see ?
anyway – keep these great psn titles coming and I’ll keep buying – I’ve gotten around 85 so far

off topic : I submitted a blog share idea twice and it was ignored , I posted it here and was told to post there but still nothing ….. so I’ll try again and for the last time

on mondays on the ps blog :
Here’s your weekly psn preview
( posts confirmed content for games and dlc for that weeks psn store update )

thanks for your time .

    Wow! 85 PSN titles! I think you’ve beaten my record. :-) As for the PSN title release dates, let’s wait and see how they pan out, but these sound correct.

    As for Share: you probably submitted an idea that has already been submitted — those get filtered out. If that’s not the case, it’s probably in the submission backlog (which we’ve mostly caught up on, but is still there due to E3 craziness).

    Thanks for the post idea. I’ll look into that.

With all the great news that has been coming out over the last few weeks, I’m really psyched about E3.

I mean, you wouldn’t be mentioning all this stuff now unless there was something HUGE coming up, would you?

Come on, Sid, PSP2 and/or PSP Phone – confirm or deny

I’m hoping to have those 2 games on my hdd asap

I checked and my share idea wasn’t a duplicate , guess I’ll wait and see if it’s posted – have 3 posted already but I’ve submitted about 30 – and none were duplicate posts
I have seen a lot of them posted though , same ideas with slightly different wording and at least 1/3 are things the ps3 does already but people don’t read their manuals .
anyway , Have a great weekend .

    It’s exciting to hear people are interested in Share — I feel like the best is still to come! Some of the new Share backend tweaks will lead to better filtering and organization of ideas & submissions (a key improvement) and help reduce the delay of moderation. No firm details on timing — we’ll tell you!– but we’re looking into addressing many of your points specifically. Have a great weekend yourself!

Hi again Sid. Is there a reason why blog videos of interviews/previews don’t make their way to the ps store? I think you guys are missing an opportunity here, not everyone who owns a ps3/psp visits the blog. (Don’t bother recommending “share”, I submitted it well over a month ago and nothing).

Hey Sony, as a long time loyal customer I’m PISSED. Bad Company 2 froze my PS3 (AGAIN) and when I turned it back on it wouldn’t read the disc. Now my Blu-ray drive is NOT READING ANYTHING. You won’t offer me a warranty, nope, you want to charge me $150 (yes $150) and THREE WEEKS to repair it.

So I go to Gamestop thinking, okay ill trade it in for a new PS3 Slim but NOPE no one EVEN HAS ONE IN STOCK.

What is this crap Sony? It’s time to get an Xbox 360, what choice do I have? I can’t game on PS3 anymore HELP ME.

hey sid, will sony be addressing the problems with the in-game XMB, u know, when u r using ur internet browser and decided to compare trophies with ur friends, it asks u to quit the browser before u compare. It is quite annoying, i mean, it works when u do it while u play a game, but doesn’t when using the browser. And the same problem with the photo library, u can’t view ur trophies while using the photo library!, is the in-game XMB system even unified? Sony should completely redesign the whole operating system, which i don’t see sony going into that much hassle, but will these issues soon be fixed?, and yes, i did try to share this issue on the, but has yet to be processed and posted. Sony has to do a lot of cleaning up, this isn’t last gen u know?
