@OrganicShadow: Because it sucks, man you don’t want that.

xxLONESTARxx said:

December 6th, 2:18 pm

OK, I like that we have some themes now…any plans to come out with themes that aren’t game related?

ratchet18 said:

December 6th, 2:21 pm

The new GTA IV video and the Ratchet & Clank theme are amazing. Its also about time the TGS MGS4 trailer is released.

Aluc said:

December 6th, 2:21 pm

I didn’t really like this update at all. Timeshift multiplayer demo which was supposed to come out last week and themes, and trailers. Only saving grace is High Velocity Bowling

Late November OR Early December !!!!! What A lie Sony

Snap said:

December 6th, 2:27 pm

@Delriach I second Alundra. It’s out in Japan, hoping to see it soon over in the US.

ISEMAN said:

December 6th, 2:28 pm

@xxLONESTARxx – they already released those 3 non-game related themes. There is also a website that has TONS of user created themes for download. Many are top notch.

Can’t wait to see the official themes for Ratchet and Uncharted.

Gunwing said:

December 6th, 2:29 pm

We need Demos for the fallowing PS3 games:

And all the rest with patches and DL content and nothing other than the PSPs bulit in wi-fi can get them from an offical source and they will always work when you DL them?

subbed said:

December 6th, 2:34 pm

@ gunwing Those demos are beyond the control of Sony. Ubi wont make an Assasin’s Creed demo. The rest of your request I wouldn’t mind at all!

gamegenieny said:

December 6th, 2:38 pm

Did anyone notice that the R&C theme has different sounds ? Is this something that can be done by us also with custom themes ? I love it, we need more official themes with new sounds !!

Jezer29 said:

December 6th, 2:41 pm

Thank you for the PS1 Classic game.. Finally..

nmc75 said:

December 6th, 2:43 pm

Nice US Store update! Am glad to see another PS1 game, an RPG no less. The MGS4 and GTA4 videos are great as well.

On a separate note: European PS Store users.. go get your Killzone 2 Theme now! The background alternates which is pretty sweet.

joel said:

December 6th, 2:43 pm

Are you guys going to update the pc store this week with BEATS? And ape escape?

Youlikeyams said:

December 6th, 2:45 pm

And Europe gets what?

Gunwing said:

December 6th, 2:46 pm

Hay for those asking about the PC/PSP store Beats is now out I’m looking at it now it only costs 5 dallars! Also new themes, tons of PS3 videos, and all kinds of new wallpapers! Get on and DL now!

darkiewonder said:

December 6th, 2:50 pm


thanks for that! I can now spend more money on Beats!!!!!

zola said:

December 6th, 2:50 pm

Thanks for the update!

Good Call on Wild Arms!

Finally another quality PSone game on PSN!!

Hopefully more and more will keep coming out, and $5.99 is a good price!

Do you hear that Solace? I said good price!


kratle j said:

December 6th, 2:50 pm

when is Final Fantasy VII gonna be on the store?!

omegasyde said:

December 6th, 2:51 pm

Mrs. Grace Chen,

If you could get the message and bring more PS1 RPG’s like Legend of Dragoon, or other Third part y companies to release then that would be great.

Also I love all of the extra downloadable content and I believe your prices for the PSN games are justified at 10 dollars. If anything it would be nice if your team got crack-a-lackin on more PS1 games for PS3/PSP.

Also why not do a deal with Itunes so people could download music straight to their hard drives? I honestly do no know why anyone at SCEA has not thought nor metioned the idea.

One more thing, PS3 users don’t need the entire XMB in game, just in game messaging, a friends list. Music later would be nice, but not needed immediately. I know the HOME project is doing that, but why not the text messaging for now?

Also great concepts with the PSN games. They are way more original than what Microsoft has to offer. Older PC games could be formatted for PS3 would also be a great idea. Also partner with SEGA and get us some old Genesis titles like wild arms and Vector Man.

Thanks for the update and keep up the good work, Mrs Chen :)

omegasyde said:

December 6th, 2:55 pm

I meant Lone star heros :) Wild arms is already here. Also bring Colony wars stateside :)

RandomEarthling said:

December 6th, 2:55 pm

Will you please give us Demos for downloadable games? I feel like I’m missing out but I’m not going to buy games blindly.

subbed said:

December 6th, 2:56 pm

I am sure people will have a different list than me, but I would love to see Chrono Trigger, Vagrant story, and Fear Effect.

omegasyde said:

December 6th, 2:57 pm


Go to PS3fanboy.com
Google the game and watch the Video’s to see if you might like them. I understand you may feel like you wasted 10 dollars, but almost every game is worth its price so far and I have almost every PSN game. That just my opinion too however, but check out the gameplay vids or gamefaqs.com and look at the games message board to see how people feel about the game.

B1ack_Mage said:

December 6th, 2:58 pm

I’m glad sony is releasing some PS1 games on PSN, I just hope the guys over at sony can keep em coming every week. Japan gets about 40 a month, I don’t see why we can’t get one a week. I love how the themes are free.

I have a question about the Playstation Cards. Where are they? I’ve had my PS3 for nearly a year now and I haven’t bought anything off the store since I don’t have a credit card. So can someone at sony at least respond to me? I’m fine with “we’re working on it” but please at least respond.

(Dylan from Q games was nice enough to respond to me in a previous blog post, but since he isn’t an employee of sony he didn’t know what was going on.)

Shinogu said:

December 6th, 2:59 pm


AND THE METAL GEAR SOLID 4 TGS TRAILER!!!!!!! Oh man, you guys are TOO awesome!!!!!!

silentmatt said:

December 6th, 3:00 pm

What about the Rock Band patch? Wasn’t it supposed to go live with the PSN update?

whoelse said:

December 6th, 3:02 pm

Nice update Sony! But please update the PS Store appearance and navigation wise??

Seanscythe2 said:

December 6th, 3:02 pm

Sony I know you are reading this so listen very well.

have you been to the forums lately? Have you seen the Home section? People are waiting for your response about Phil’s “Late Nov or Early Dec” announcement regarding a “Home Open Beta”.

We know we just got into Dec, but we would really like a heads up as to a date or at least let us know it is coming this month so we can put our minds at rest on the subject.

So what do you say can we get a little word from you guys?

Vassago said:

December 6th, 3:06 pm

nice update, and a BIG BIG thank for the video (gta 4 and battlefield ) like a said many time ps3 will rules like each playstation console. :) keep up the good work !

aaquib said:

December 6th, 3:07 pm

Great update, I see you’re finally getting some expansions up there. I, do, however want to know why all the Canadian content cost more than the US prices. Um, in case you haven’t noticed OUR DOLLAR IS STILL STRONGER. It should be cheaper, not more expensive!

Mr Everdred 01 said:

December 6th, 3:11 pm

Late November/early December ends with next Thursday’s Playstation Store update. Come on, Phil Harrison. Give us an update on Home.

Kaoro said:

December 6th, 3:16 pm

Seriously Sony, I don’t mean to be extremely negative, but the fact that my system freezes EVERY TIME I enter a credit card expiration date of 09/2011, I want to take my PS3 and break it into little pieces :).

Just kidding about the PS3 sacrificing, though I would love to be able to actually purchase things from the Playstation Store… heck I missed out on the Everyday Shooter Thanksgiving promo so I deserve an Account Management system that doesn’t freeze when I enter in my expiration date!

Gunwing said:

December 6th, 3:18 pm

If I had to make a list of PSone games we need for PS3/PSP on both versions of PSN it would be the fallowing:

Gex: the 3D one they made Plus it would get my cusson to buy a PS3! Thats another customer for you Sony!

MonsterRancher: Why? it was killer fun!

FinalFantasy: the orignal

FinalFantasy: 2/3/4

androvsky said:

December 6th, 3:24 pm

Wild Arms! That’s great! I’m so glad you’re getting some Japanese RPG classics from the PS1 up on the PSN Store. I’ll probably buy this just to support more JRPG titles, even though I watched my girlfriend beat Wild Arms: Alter Code F (the remake for the PS2) literally a couple weeks ago.

As for what I want next for PS1 RPG titles? I honestly don’t care, but the rarer the better. Suikoden 2 (we own all the other Suikoden titles) would be great, as would Xenogears (again, own all the others).

roku6wiz said:

December 6th, 3:32 pm

Yea it’s great but wheres HOME? just wondering would like some sort of update please :) thank you

KnaveX said:

December 6th, 3:36 pm

TheDevilsJoker said:

December 6th, 3:49 pm

TwinsDad said:

December 6th, 4:04 pm
