As if only once per week updates weren’t bad enough, we’re forced to wait until very late at night for that single update. Add to that abysmal support for the PSPGo and I can’t really blame anyone on jumping ship from Sony.

Promising a certain update time and missing it is way worse than just a late update. Pull it together, guys!

@149 I like PSN, but its basically a charity. I’m a fan of ALL consoles, but I recognize great service when I see it. Itunes and Xlive are the best of their kind.

@149

Where else is he going to voice his displeasure in hopes of someone hearing him about this issue, Xbox forums?

And he is surprised/outraged cause he actually believe something Sony said about the store. How would you feel if you had a PSPGo and been waiting for this game for a year? You have no other option.

The fact that there is no set-time is highly unprofessional as many people have said. It shows they don’t fully care. If they don’t care, why should we care? No caring and you go to other products. I am typing words and getting sick.

I remember when the store updated around 4-7pm EST… now it’s going on 9pm which I didn’t notice until just now.

Keep up the good work Sony <3

I’m glad you agree Ken about the voucher codes being active sooner. And wow another super late week, 9PM EDT already. The weekly updates need to happen earlier.

@149 – Because I’ve invested so much into my PS3. My PS3 IS MAIN SYSTEM. How does Sony repay me? With incompetence and disrespect. There’s a reason people pay for XBL just like there’s a reason people paid for Plus. I know for a fact I don’t have to wait all day for XBL to update tomorrow. I don’t even go through this nonsense with the Wii Shop Channel. How am I not justified in my anger? I just want my goddamn Sony store to be updated. Do they not want my money? Clearly they don’t.

I have waited 8 long months for more GOW, so I guess a few more MINUTES (I hope) are (still) tolerable.

I am amazed that when Sony is releasing one of the biggest PSP games of the year (maybe even one of the biggest PSP games of all time), and are releasing a ton of great pre-order items to go along with it, they can’t even meet the deadline. As of now, it has almost been a whole hour past the time they said it would come out.

I don’t like having to complain to Sony about late updates (it’s happened more times than I can remember), but this is pretty ridiculous. This is why the PSP Go is doing so poorly.

This is a test of the PSN, this is only a test, if this was an actual update this would be followed by instructions on how to correctly download the information and DLC at the proposed time.. this was only a test of the PSN.

No I have to wait because I was a sucker and bought the PSP Go. All my friends of course can play the game but for me I have to wait because being a sucker is what Sony has reduced me to, week, after week.

@BearofKratos

So do I. When I bought my PSP 3000 on Amazon, the UMD drive got messed up, and it makes a very irritating noise when it plays a UMD. I prefer getting the games digitally now because it makes no noise, loading is shorter, and the PSP Go is very portable.

I’m just irritated that all the PSP Go owners are basically getting kind of screwed by Sony a bit because while everyone has the game on UMD and is enjoying it right now, we’re still waiting for the store to update.

You’d think someone at Sony by now would figure out to start sorting these updates on Monday and simply flip the switch at a set time every week on Tuesday instead of this nonsense week after week.

+ djdeath2009 on November 2nd, 2010 at 6:10 pm said:

so can we get something free to compensate for this wait time or something? i mean i would like a set in stone policy that it will update at a certain time each week. i mean comeon. how hard is this? they usually have all the list on hear to say “this is what u can expect” so why not copy that list, add whats needed, and when u made that original list you start to update the servers but put a virtual barrier there so it won’t show then at the set time u let the post up and let the barrier dissappear. if u prepare earlier then u can be more efficient.

Yes, this is pretty unprofessional.

Have a set time please, it’s pretty ridiculous to refresh the blog waiting for the store to update. It’s one thing if it’s within a 5-10 minutes from the 5PM PST…but we’re going over an hour passed…

It’s pretty ridiculous

what’s threre to look? this is (sadly) common for ps store updates. apparently its impossible to have everything set by monday, so that when tuesday morning comes its just a matter of pushing the “update” button.
