Your PSN Questions—Answered

Susan Panico's Avatar Posted by Susan Panico on Dec 16, 2010 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Network

It’s been a busy few weeks on the PlayStation Network with several big announcements and new apps launching. In the month of November alone, we announced the launch of the NHL GameCenter Live application, the availability of Hulu Plus outside of PlayStation Plus, the VUDU app on PSN, and BBC America programming in the PlayStation Store. We’ve also shared a new episode of The Tester 2 each week and just last week we announced a number of new games on PlayStation Home, as we marked the 2-year anniversary of the platform. And, in addition to the PSN updates we’ve shared, there have also been a number of new updates for PlayStation Plus subscribers and new features in the PlayStation Rewards program.

There’s no doubt that PSN is in the midst of tremendous growth as we continue to expand our entertainment offering. We recently surpassed 60 million registered accounts worldwide – an increase of 53% in North America in just the last year – and we continue to see our users soak up the new entertainment content offerings. In fact, movies and TV series purchased on the PlayStation Network video delivery service increased 42% compared to a year ago and we’re seeing that our users are quite engaged, with well over 70% using PSN weekly.

It’s been busy and we’re certainly excited about how far we’ve come in a short time, but the busyness has also kept me away from addressing some of your questions and there have been some great ones. I wanted to take some time before we ended the year to look back at previous posts and address some of questions that you have. I’ve also cleared my schedule this afternoon to answer any further questions you might have on PSN and about some of our new services and partners, so drop your questions in the below comments and I’ll do my best to address them.

We’re lucky to have such loyal users. Thanks for continuing to come back and please keep on sending us your questions, thoughts and suggestions. They are important and we are listening!

PlayStation Plus

Q: Field Runners was in the July 6 and the upcoming December 14 publish. Will content continue to be recycled? – ExPresident (December 1, 2010 post)

A: PlayStation Plus has circulated a lot of great content since the service was launched in June and based on what we think our users want, we’ll look to bring back some of those popular items. This will not affect our goals to bring new experiences and discount options to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Q: Are there any plans to add a digital rental service to PlayStation Plus? – JacobeAbam (December 1, 2010 post)

A: While we don’t have any news to announce around a digital rental service for PlayStation Plus, our goal is to include a full game trial each month when possible, which allows gamers to try out PS3 titles for up to one full hour. Recently, we’ve launched full game trials for Red Faction Guerrilla, Warhawk, inFamous, God of War I, ll and Prototype, and we’re looking forward to upcoming releases, like Borderlands. And, don’t forget your PlayStation Plus includes access to PSP minis and PSone games as part of your subscription.

Q: Europe received the Fallout 3 DLC and Sam & Max season for free when we receive older titles. When can we expect newer discounted or free content? – Vengeance88 (October 20, 2010 post)

A: Content for PlayStation Plus subscribers differ for each region and that is dependant on a lot of different variables that aren’t always determined by us. Sometimes it’s our publishers that make decisions on how many or where to share certain content and sometimes it’s simply a case of where it makes the most sense for a particular game or feature. Having said that, we’re always looking for ways to extend the content we offer across different regions and hopefully you’ve seen that in some of the recent content that we’ve released, like the December 14th publish that included the upcoming featured download of the Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse season.

Q: When does the free three month promotion end for PlayStation Plus? – eatthemall (PS+ FAQ post)

A: The promotion that currently adds three months to your 12-month subscription is ongoing and users who subscribe to the promotion will now get 15 months of PlayStation Plus for the 12-month cost. If you’re not yet a subscriber, what other promotional offers would help you make the decision to subscribe?

Q: Can we have a progress update on cross game chat and any other features that will be available for PlayStation Plus subscribers? – xKOROSHIYAx (PS+ FAQ post)

A: I don’t have any progress updates to share at this time, but I can tell you that we’re listening to the things you want and whether or not we can release them now, we take all of the features you’ve been asking for seriously.

PlayStation Rewards

Q: When will the PlayStation Rewards program be available to Canada? – Chowbacca (October 27, 2010)

A: The PlayStation Rewards program is currently in beta and only available to GAP members and PlayStation Plus subscribers (who have opted into marketing emails as of October 24). If everything goes well during the beta period, our plan is to extend the offering to Canada in Spring 2011.

Q: Will the PlayStation Rewards program be available in Europe? – Coheno (October 27, 2010)

A: The other regions have shown interest, but we haven’t announced any plans to expand in Europe at this time.

Q: Why do trophy counts not affect the PlayStation Rewards program? I think trophy level should determine a gamer’s status in the program. – Mirauder (October 27, 2010)

A: The PlayStation Rewards program is still currently in beta and will remain an evolving program post-launch. Currently, we have incorporated the use of trophies into the Quest system announced earlier this week. Quests tie into more than just games, giving PlayStation Rewards members opportunities to gain progress from all aspects of the PlayStation Network, such as PlayStation Home, original programming and more.

Q: How long is the beta period for the PlayStation Rewards program? – LightAce (October 27, 2010)

A: We are expecting PlayStation Rewards to come out of beta in April 2011.

Q: Will the PlayStation Reward levels be based on games we beat from this date? Or will it include the games/trophies we have already beaten/earned on PS3? – cdsly16 (October 27, 2010)

A: The PlayStation Rewards program is not retroactive. It will take into account all the new games that you have played since the launch of the program.


Q: Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t Hulu, VUDU, Netflix, and the Store all be competing for purchases of the same content on each and every PS3? – JBracin70 (November 16, 2010)

A: Actually, no. There are quite a few differences in terms of the type of content provided across the different services, the window of availability of content, and the payment options, etc. The bottom line is that we’re extending our content offering with a choice of partners to bring you the entertainment experience you want.

Q: Isn’t this video service cannibalizing on Sony’s current PSN video service? – Neil (November 16, 2010)

A: No, actually all of the different options haven’t cannibalized the PSN video delivery service, as proven by the 42% year-over-year growth. The PSN wallet and the compatibility with the PSN cards on PlayStation Store purchases have proven to be a great solution of convenience that complements our other content offerings.

Hulu Plus

Q: When will the service be available to Canadians? – Jeanse27 (November 4, 2010)

A: At this point, we don’t have any news to share on the exact timing for bringing Hulu Plus to Canada, but I can tell you that we’re exploring ways to bring our Canadian friends more of the content we’ve released in the US. However, it does bear mentioning that these plans are also contingent on Hulu Plus and when they extend their services to Canada.

Q: Any chance we can get Move support for both the Netflix and Hulu Plus app down the road? – Philaroni (November 4, 2010)

A: While you can use the Move controllers to navigate through the XMB, we don’t have anything to announce today for full support of Netflix or Hulu Plus. VUDU has announced that they will support PlayStation Move motion control with their new UI, VUDU 2.0, which will automatically update to your PS3 sometime this month.

Q: Do I have to pay for the monthly service with my credit card or can I use my PlayStation Wallet? – Rene_Led (November 4, 2010)

A: At this time you will have to pay for your Hulu Plus subscription with your credit card on, but we’ll certainly share updates on payment methods as they become available.

The Tester

Q: Can you consider including Canadians in your contests or at least run Canada specific contests? – krae_man (November 2, 2010)

A: Great suggestion, and we’ll most certainly be thinking about ways to integrate Canada and/ or Canadian specific challenges into future Tester series. Please continue to share your suggestions as we evolve the series, contests and overall experience.

NHL GameCenter

Q: Will we see similar sports applications, such as the NFL Sunday Ticket or NBA League Pass, on the PlayStation Network? – TABBYG87 (November 11, 2010)

A: We’re focused on providing you with many choices for your entertainment needs. We’ll continue to expand the catalogue of content you have access to on the PlayStation Network, however today we don’t have any news to share specific to NFL Sunday Ticket or NBA League Pass.

Q: Will the free NHL GameCenter app go away after the PlayStation Plus subscription has ended? – Dagger_32 (November 11, 2010)

A: The app itself won’t disappear from your XMB, but the free access to the app will discontinue once your PlayStation Plus subscription has ended and you will need to purchase it. As with all of the other content offered through PlayStation Plus, only subscribers will have access to the exclusive, free or discounted offers within PlayStation Plus, which includes the NHL GameCenter app being free to subscribers.

+ aquastorm on December 16th, 2010 at 7:28 pm said:

I think Sony is starting to realize with the poor sales of the PS3 so far this holiday season that they have really messed up this gen. Many stores are now offering rebates or gift cards if you buy a PS3 (WalMart is offering a 100 gift card with purchase) because they just aren’t selling and systems are piling up in their inventories.

I think this post is proof that finally Sony is starting to wake up a little bit BUT one thing I find very troubling is the constant cryptic non commital or denial of Cross Game Chat. They wont even answer if it is coming to the PS3 or not. That is exactly the attitude gamers and consumers are fed up with Sony.. Get it together!


+ krae_man on December 16th, 2010 at 7:26 pm said:

Since your answering questions in the coments, I’ll ask this one again.

Why in the world don’t the trophy cards update automaticly? Having to log into the site, click on the portable ID tab and click the refresh button to manually update them is by far the dumbest way you could possibly do things, and that’s exactly what you did.

I could understand them not being real time, but there’s no valid reason to not have them automaticly refresh once a day at the bare minimum.


+ Edd on December 16th, 2010 at 7:41 pm said:

@Susan, we know you know that we want its, the question is are you guys working on it? That’s the question that is not and has not been answered for 4 years. All I’m asking is why can’t we get like an actual progress report of what’s being worked on and what isn’t? Instead of the standard “we have nothing to announce at this time”. I mean that’s so ambiguous to the point where we don’t even know if you’re working on it or if it’s even possible.

Can you guys please implement for PS Plus users the option to forgo any “free” games when adding them to our cart and actually give us the option to buy it so we can straight own it instead of getting it for free as long as we have Plus?

Are you ever going to make multi sign-in, because there are a lot of games where me and my brother want to sign into both of our PSN account at the SAME TIME. Please respond! I want to know if you are putting this into consideration!


+ dragonleader33 on December 16th, 2010 at 8:07 pm said:

Come on Sony you know darn well what we are gonna ask you about. Cross. Game. Chat. We have been asking about it for two years solid now and all we get is a simple “We look into all ideas.” Really you sure as hell have a strange way to communicate with your customers.
I dont see why you cant just be honest about it and tell us like it is. Are you really working on it and is it close? Or are you completely baffled by the idea and need to hire someone who knows what the hell they are doing? Regardless, I have said it before and will say it one more time. Your PR is pretty pour. Be honest with us, it will go a long way.


+ SolduNuts on December 16th, 2010 at 8:07 pm said:

First off thanks you Sony for the best gaming platform ever made.

Will the U.S. ever get Flight Control HD for the PS Move. Why would I have to by it from SCEE?

Next question, how come I am in the rewards program, but none of the quests ever update form me. I go on Home almost every day and I own and have played many move enabled games and plenty of demos also, oh and I watch Pulse every other week in HD. None of my quests will update, I have even redownloaded this last Pulse twice and watched it twice, but no update on my quests.

Thanks, Sold


+ Sekoku on December 16th, 2010 at 8:07 pm said:

Why does it take forever for the PSN store to update.

Even better question: Why is there no set time for the PSN store to update? Somedays, it could be noon, EST, and others it’ll be as late as midnight. What is the process behind the PSN store updates?

Nintendo, Steam/Valve, and X-box Live/Microsoft all update at a set time and date and have their content planned a month or more in advance. What is your excuse for the late updates?

+ Zilla33 on December 16th, 2010 at 8:35 pm said:

I have the sam and max issue still. Also i have 2 ps3s in my house and may be getting a third and wonder why when I sync trophies some show up on one and not other. Also will it ever be possible to share the save files between the two without the save trophy conflict? This is frustrating when you start a game on one system and then are forced to play the game on that one. Also would like private chat added while in game.

@ 41

Great post. The “other console” has had these features since day one including..

– Appear offline
– Extremely fast patches/updates

I just don’t understand why PS3/PSN can’t have these features. It’s been 4+ years and the Best console still doesn’t have these things.

Besides, we’ve been getting pointless updates that add either a security patch or just useless features like having the option to print pictures from the PS3 or a photo editing system…on a gaming system.

Please, please, PLEASE hear me out Susan Panico. Please don’t walk away from these major features that’ll greatly benefit PSN and us PS3 gamers.

This is great, and thank you for taking the time to answer so many questions. Sadly, a lot of readers on this blog are getting used to being ignored when they offer feedback and constructive criticism, so we always appreciate it when we see that our feedback is being taken to heart!

My big suggestion continues to be expanding the duration of the trial games to 4-5 hours. Most of the games that have been offered begin with cinemas and tutorials, and 60 minutes is not enough time to decide if you really want them. Considering the size of the download (6.5 GB for Prototype, for example), it’s hard to justify the value of downloading a trial for just 60 minutes of play. A longer trial would offer gamers more time to get into the game and decide if it’s worth paying to complete it.

I suspect offering longer trials would only improve sales.

how about sony make more games like kinect as far as better than kung fu live or jus like it but wit ur own style most people might not have move yet but if u make more games wit jus the ps eye. n if u start putn out advertisements people would like that n maby come over to sony to check that out plus ps move


+ secularsage on December 16th, 2010 at 9:26 pm said:

One other suggestion I would offer — the automatic downloading option for PS+ would be a lot more useful if it allowed for more customization.

For instance, I would love to be able to set it to automatically download and install all free PS+ and PS Store updates. It would be nice if the automatic download feature allowed gamers some customization options (e.g. only download new PS+ free games and demos, download every free new release but videos, and so forth). While I understand that you want us to browse the store, many PS+ owners read the blog before they even get on the store, so we’re already aware of what we want.

Browsing the PS store can be a chore if you’ve got a long list of free downloads to wade through.

Thanks again!

+ secularsage on December 16th, 2010 at 9:31 pm said:

One final suggestion — 2011 needs to be the year when the PS3 allows for trophy and save-game synching. Now that the PS3 is lower in price, some people are getting multiple units for their homes or for travel. It’s certainly easy enough to clone the hard drive if you need to move saved games over to a second unit, but we’re in the 21st century now, and PSN really should offer a cloud-based solution for this.

Heck, this could even be a value-added feature for PS+. We PS+ faithful would certainly not complain!

While I understand that it’s logistically problematic at this time, rolling out an automatic synching system for saved games to my PSN account would top my “most desired features” list for the next year.

Look Jeff and everyone at PS, Im a huge PS fan but I have not bought PS+ yet and many of my friends that have regret it. My point I am getting at is if you really want to make PS+ a must have service, you need to bundle in Hulu Plus or VUDU or Netflix or something of a consistent service. Paying $60 bucks a year for an unknown mystery box every month isnt, or at least shouldnt, be enough of an incentive to buy something like that. Also, I really feel this observation/opinion must be stated, if Cross Game Chat becomes a PS+ exclusive then I am selling my PS3. Thats just the bottom line. That particular service which have been asking for since day 1 should not be an exclusive service. period.

And you also deliver, what I believe to be, the best gaming experiences out there.

For PS+ will we be seeing more PSP content? as a owner of both a ps3 and a psp it would be nice as i would be a potential buying of PS+ if there was more content for psp as well.

For PS+ will there more PS-Home content? i use Home frequently, and like i said before as a potential buying for a PS+ it would be great in my eyes to see PS-Home content

Will we ever see past Psp games on the PSN? recently you guys havent been releasing classic psp game and generally just release (poorly i might add) newer psp games. As a Psp Go users im very dissapointed as there are a ton of games (past, present, future) i would purchase in a heartbeat.

+ Benjamininja on December 17th, 2010 at 4:20 am said:

Hey SCEA, I appreciate the updates, and your dedication to improving the services offered.

I find that I split my PS3 usage between playing games and watching media; the majority of my media viewing is local files on my home network. Currently I’m using PS3 Media Server to transcode files on the fly, but, as with any patchwork solution, things don’t always work out perfectly.

What I would love to see is improved media playback functionality integrated into the PS3 experience. Sony has the SMP-N100, among other devices which play files from network shares; is there a chance that we’ll be seeing features from that in a future PS3 update?

While it’s already the winner in my home entertainment setup, that would really make it the king

Dear Playstation,

Thank You!

I will really love to see some commercial like system on PlayStation Home.Like its own monetary system and stores that sell items by using that monetary system and the real money. That way there could be a more traffic commerce between items, and those who want premium items could buy them on the existing store with real money. Also a marketplace where users could sell and buy, that other users have, like an auction house.
I know Sodium and Novus Prime have one, but I mean on the entire Home network. And you get money by doing some quest, jobs, or winning games.

A shame Susan Panico keeps dodging the question about cross game chat, instead preferring to trot out the standard customer service pap. Either it’s being worked on or it isn’t. The way it’s dealt with is indicative of the clueless way SCE is run. No wonder the PS3 and PSP are selling so badly compared to the opposition.

A: The promotion that currently adds three months to your 12-month subscription is ongoing and users who subscribe to the promotion will now get 15 months of PlayStation Plus for the 12-month cost. If you’re not yet a subscriber, what other promotional offers would help you make the decision to subscribe?

^^Classy… Answer a question with a question and no definitive answer.

I have been a PlayStation guy since 1996. I have a few questions.

1. Are there any plans to take PlayStation Move to the non-controller realm like the other guys use with the K thing? This is a deal breaker for some of us. The additional cost of controllers to play the games on move can be astronomical. I love the idea but if i want to play more games its $50 a controller and some games one person needs 2 that’s $200 dollars if I am going to play a boxing style game against someone else.

2. Also are there any plans for an ESPN 3 application?

3. Last but not least are there any plans to update the PlayStation browser?

I just want to know if there will be a way to manage your Playstation and/or PSP to active and deactivate the account games on them, like what if i had a broken PS3 that had my account on it and i want to deactivate it?.
