PlayStation Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi, everyone. It’s time for the PLAYSTATION Store weekly update.

We have two great PS3 demos this week:
• Clive Barker’s Jericho
• NBA 2K8

We also have a couple more add-ons. The first is a new vehicle for MotorStorm. This vehicle, the “Castro Capitano,” is not offered in any other MotorStorm bundle, and it’s only $0.99. There’s also a new Speed Master add-on for Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

As usual, we released more game videos and movie trailers:
• NBA 08 Upside Progression System tutorial
• Eye of Judgement Overview
• Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock trailer
• Iron Man trailer
• We Own the Night trailer


Add Your Own

well then I complain at the main side of Sony of why SCEE doesn’t have its own blog…that’s just stupid…NA gets a blog, and we don’t…and we can’t complain here about SCEE problems…pfff

…and yet another week with NO PSOne / PSX games… …WTF SONY? Do you LIKE not making any money?

Glad there are at least some demos, but I have to ask-

Don’t get me wrong, I am glad there is at least something new on the PSN, but man! I’m tired of paying for add-on stuff that the same type of stuff is free on the “other” systems network…

A $1.00 for a new car?

I mean, it’s just some 3-D studio Max template you are uploading and charging for…add on stuff should be free for the loyal fans to keep support alive on servers! Or let us make our own cars and upload them to race!!!

If we have to shell out $$$ for every so-so small add-on stuffs for each game, people will just go “meh” and not buy them…

BUT! If small add-ons like this are free and heavily publicized as such, it could help breathe new life into existing titles that , shall we say, have started to thin out on the servers…! It can keep us interested and playing our PS3’s instead of other options!

Cmon! It’ll work for sure!

We can all see the add-ons are just dollar signs to you all now, as the PS3 is lagging in sales…EVOLVE the add-ons, and make them into GREAT PUBLICITY!!!!

My 2cents.

and…I have to mirror what has already been said-

Where are all the PSOne games for PSN?!?!?

I mean, such a huge library of games…not utilized!!

The Wii has their old NES games, SNes, N64, Genesis, Turbografx-16 and others…

Just don’t price them more than $5.00!!!!!

I just want the PS3 to be the best!

@52 jonabbey
I thought that the Paramount-HDDVD deal was for an 18 month “timed exclusive” for HD-DVDs. Maybe i’m wrong or misread that, and if so, then you’re totally right about it being weird.

I’m lookin’ forward to seeing how Jericho turned out (it’s nice that we got it day-and-date with “the box”) and interested to see how 2K8 stands up to the other basketball demos. Currently, I’m leaning towards NBA08 because it was easier to play, IMO. Either way, two demos with totally different gameplay styles is totally fine with me. I remember the days when we didn’t get ANY demos and people complained that they wanted more. Oh wait, they still are…

I agree with frito.
Anyway next week: Ratchet and Clank!
(Praying for LBP someday)

i completely agree. The -3 week late- demos are nice and all but the EU store has only had 1 game in the past 2+ months! Where is Blast Factor and Piyotama and Pixeljunk! I know PSN games don’t seem like much to most of you vut i like the experience of buying it and then playing it for the first time and getting completely hooked!

nmc75 said:

Thanks for the update. As a heads-up for the community, JPN PS Store has TGS 2007 videos to download as well.

I just knew that NBA 2K8 had to come out this week. NBA LIVE 08, and NBA 08 came out, now they save the BEST FOR LAST….NBA 2K8. I am so happy!!

Thwip said:

September 27th, 12:17 pm

Man do I need a abbreviation legend or what? It took me 20+ posts to figure out what PES2008 was. Can you posters please try and type out the full text of an abbreviation if your the first one to be posting it? I don’t often comment on forums; I just enjoy reading them…but some of the lingo…wow!

PS – Nice update guys…Thanx!

Just so some of you know, Ratchet & Clank demo is out next week. A Metal Gear Solid 4 English demo is being made now. AND Home beta updated today and the update is live. So there you go.

Bravo, Sony! Bravo! Keep’em coming baby! Oh and nice job at TGS too. We would have loved it if some features were available this year *cough rumble*coughHome*cough* but it’s all good. Now make sure Uncharted is AAA and we’ll have a great Xmas with it and UTIII.

aaquib said:

September 27th, 12:34 pm

Aw man, not updated yet :(

Why don’t you Europeans complain to ThreeSpeech? I dont think SCEA will read this and give SCEE a call to get more demos up. The content is created by the publishers and if they don’t want to release it in every territory, Sony can’t force them.

darklinksv said:

September 27th, 12:38 pm

demo pes 2008??

lakaihigh said:

September 27th, 12:46 pm

September 27th, 12:52 pm

theydidntnameme said:

September 27th, 12:57 pm


they say it updates at 6pm EST so it will be here at 3pm west coast time, so in 2 hours we’ll have it.

Dragonopt1 said:

theydidntnameme said:

September 27th, 1:04 pm

KnaveX said:

[…] store hasn’t update yet as far as I know but the Playstation Blog lets us know what to expect […]

MUGEN02 said:

September 27th, 1:23 pm

can you start updating the store at midnight thursday, you did a great job releasing Warhawk at midnight why can’t you do the same for normal ps store updates. instead of waiting around in the afternoon for the store to be updated everyone could have checked out the ps store before they go to work or school and have the things downloaded when they get back home.

thanks for the update.

theydidntnameme said:

September 27th, 1:26 pm

Yea, I’m to used to world of warcraft. They do updates and maintenance early in the morning, often times everything would be done before I even wake up.. but here I’m stuck hoping I can play a new demo today before I have to go to work…

Personally I would really like to see something from Soul Calibur 4. A few HD pictures or a trailer.

fuzzbuns said:

September 27th, 1:50 pm

@ 85
Soul Calibur 4’s already slated for PS3. There’s a video up on the PS store.

aaquib said:

September 27th, 1:53 pm

2Pounds for a Motorstorm car? THATS $4 DUDE. SCEE is completely useless, WOW. 4X the price, when EU barely gets any content and everything costs more even after VAT and all that. Im not going to believe that there were 400% taxes on a “digital car.” Worst is that one of the reasons Motorstorm got a low reading was because of the extremly low content so instead Sony charges for cars and backward maps. Sony is starting to rip us off more than Micrsoft.

We want PS Store on PC in US and Europe :(

Loki_344 said:

September 27th, 2:07 pm

Decent update. Thanks.

frito said:

September 27th, 2:17 pm

geez i’ve been waitingall day for these demos to finally be uploaded to PSN…

how about updating the store Wednesday night/Thursday morning while the world sleeps, so we can wake up to gaming goodness with our pop-tarts?

XxBigP123xX said:

September 27th, 2:18 pm

you can take that $0.99 and shove it! if we have the revenge weekend pack we should get this for free! load of crap!

and where the hell is the store on PC for the US?

How about that Bowling game we’ve been promised for about 10 months now??? Oh well… Good on you for getting us Barkers’s Jericho the same day as 360… A first is a first, even when it’s not worth being 1st.

metalhead32 said:

September 27th, 2:38 pm

Nice update guys. Would be nice if people would stop whining about how they didn’t get the demo they want. I guess they expect to get everything in one week.

silentmatt said:

September 27th, 2:40 pm

new rule: can you post these updates at some time near when you actually upload them to the server?

this blog post went up like 6 hours ago and the store STILL hasn’t updated. that is just lame. as is quitting your game to check every hour or so because you can’t access the XMB in-game.

I personally prefer to visit the store and be surprised, then read more about what is there on the blog afterwards. Posting about it so far in advance kind of ruins both experiences.

Tidus said:

September 27th, 2:40 pm

Solace -> I couldn’t agree more with you :)


P_tear_griffin said:

September 27th, 2:42 pm

Can’t wait to play Jericho! Funny, I’m not ticked at the $1 motorstorm add-on. However, I’m upset at having to pay for an add-on on NG sigma when the add-ons were supposedly free on the xbox game. To add further insult, the sequal is exclusive to another system! Anyway, thanks for the demo games and other stuff!

theydidntnameme said:

September 27th, 2:43 pm

I agree with 106 (silentmatt). It’s kind of annoying to see them post about ‘whats new on the ps store today’ then when we go to it theres nothing new on it, even 6 hours after they made the announcement.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock……. U kno what pisses me off, u cant play the old GH on ps3 with the new wireless guitar. you need to team up with Activision and RedOctane and make it happen please. no backwards capabilty, that pisses me off a ton

reesimo said:

September 27th, 2:46 pm

Hey, guys. When can we expect some of the awesome videos shown at TGS? Sony was on the ball with this year’s E3, where’s the TGS love?

aaquib said:

September 27th, 2:47 pm


They should be coming next week.

subbed said:

September 27th, 2:51 pm

Decent update keep’em coming. I can tell the demo process is going a little faster but if you could streamline it even more it would be most appreciated. If you could please push for Ubi for a demo of Haze and AC that would be great! Hope to see some of those first party game demos soon. Oh and like the broken record in these blogs please add more PSX games.

Any chance someone is working on making the store better? To me its ugly (there are more colors than blue) and not well designed for the sixaxis. It clunky to move around in with the controller.
