GHIII Classic Rock Pack??? Didn’t the 360 guys get it this week?

Violater said:

January 24th, 1:43 pm

Ok you guys make sure u get it before I get home so ur not Sappin my Bandwith.

I tried sending this to your ’email us’ link, but it wouldn’t let me.
Besides the obvious in-game XMB/Soundtracks, here’s a list of suggestions that could make the firmware near perfect.

Add a ‘copy all’ and ‘copy multiple’ function to save files for PS1/2 virtual memory cards and ps3 games.
When transferring albums by mp3, all information is retained (artist, album, comments, track number), however when you transfer albums by AAC only the song title is retained. Is it possible to recognize AAC files the same way the PS3 does for mp3?
This has to do with the last suggestion, make an “edit all/multiple” function for music, photo, video, and game files. I spent so much time editing my AAC albums typing in the artist and album name over and over again for each file.
Make a more refined folder structure for the music (and I guess video, photo, and game) section. It would be nice to view folders by Artist, and then by Album folders.
Add the ability to sort files (specifically the games) in the order that you want them. I hate to mention the Wii, but sort of like how they do it, you can move the files in whatever order you want. For example, I have Superstardust HD in the middle of my folder, I’d like it near the top.
Add more color options for the XMB, the PSP has tons of color options.
Make RGB Full Range the default for people who set up with HDMI. Too many assholes out there giving misguided comparisons between 360 games.
Add PSEye functionality to the music visulaizer, something like Mesmerize would be really cool.
Play videos individually, and in groups.
How about adding some more icons for our accounts?

January 24th, 1:44 pm

Liked the pixel junk monsters theme since it added new key tones. In fact any themes with new key tones are good. While you’re at it, you should get the mesmerize and ratchet & clank theme as well, since they add new key tones.

Hopefully the club demo will be good.

It goes without saying the DMC4 demo will be awesome as well as the game. No convincing needed here about DMC4, you’ve already got someone here buying it for the PS triple.

mcpeepants80 said:

January 24th, 1:49 pm

OK, I guess. Nice to have the DMC4 demo, though I already ordered it for purchase. Jet Moto 2? NO SPANK YOU! Another crappy PS1 game.

@Slick (#13) – the GHIII Classic Rock pack is slated for the not-too-distant future, just not this week.

Gunwing said:

January 24th, 1:50 pm

JetMoto2! Yes! Now get Gex from the PSone and I will be vary happy! Plus my sister in law will finally buy a PS3!

Demayor said:

January 24th, 1:55 pm

Nice update. DMC4 here I come, it is nice to get a refresher on the controls before the game comes out.

maninatrunk77 said:

January 24th, 1:57 pm

Wow, Sony sure is all about some SCREW THE PSP, huh?

B1ack_Mage said:

January 24th, 2:01 pm

Great Update. I’m glad there is a PS1 game, hopefully PS1 games will be more frequently added. Is there any word of an official date for the PS Cards?

p-s-3 said:

January 24th, 2:08 pm

+PSN Cards for the U.K please??? ;)

joel said:

January 24th, 2:10 pm

Why cant you guys bring Final fantasy games on to the ps store?

They will sell amazingly why not put them?

Please reply

vandam said:

January 24th, 2:12 pm

Getting beter thanx for DMC4. Also would it be posible maybe on firmware update to Quit a game and eject the disk at same time. Instead of the normal way and waiting for game to quit. but any way strong this year start keep it that way. PS3 rulez!!!

TheTwelve said:

January 24th, 2:17 pm

AWESOME UPDATE!!! THANKS!!! I’m all over Pixeljunk..


Stoffinator said:

January 24th, 2:19 pm

Nice updated, but disappointed that there are never really any demos for PSN games. I wanted to try Monsters.

blakfiya said:

January 24th, 2:20 pm

@ 18jeff rubenstein when will we get home it seems like it just dissapeared out of the game plan all together?

EvoAnubis said:

January 24th, 2:21 pm

Oh . . . . . . YEAH! That’s what I’m talking about!

Oh . . . one more thing. The cat who posted about PixelJunk Monsters about a week ago . . . I said then that there had better be a hell of a demo attached to it, because I hated PixelJunk Racers.

Well . . . I think PixelJunk Monsters is awesome. Good job, guys.

EvoAnubis said:

January 24th, 2:23 pm

@#27: That’s why we make accounts in other regions. I had the PixelJunk Monsters demo a week ago. I think it’s in the JPN Store.

sixthsense said:

January 24th, 2:23 pm

PixelJunk Monsters ! finally

Seanscythe2 said:

January 24th, 2:24 pm

Jeff when is sony going to give us a real Update on Home? This is not a hard question to answer, a simple soon or Q#.

We have been kept in the dark far to long and this is something we really want some info on.

Neil said:

January 24th, 2:27 pm

Great update, I’m gonna get more than half of the content up there! Also everyone go buy No More Heroes if you have a Wii. It’s a Dreamcast game for today.

Xostas said:

January 24th, 2:27 pm

So why is Canada still paying more for their content?

50% more for Single Rockband tunes?

Please get this corrected.

kagenish said:

January 24th, 2:31 pm

great update when is the next firmware update for the ps3

Kamahl said:

January 24th, 2:33 pm

nice update, downloading both demos and a few other things

PSheddy said:

January 24th, 2:33 pm

Will there ever be a way to play Beats on the PS3? Any news on something like that ever coming out?

rockmanjoey said:

January 24th, 2:35 pm

Thanks for the update this week. Jam packed and I only wish SCEE picked up on the DLC and demos which Japan and America supply weekly to their respective stores because the UK stores content is a joke.

Anyways, do you have any idea when echochrome is coming to the PLAYSTATION Store? Its down for a March release for Japan and this game is the DLC I have been waiting for since E3 2007.

Are you planning to release more PlayStation Classics from the Greatest Hits catalogue and why not release PlayStation 2 Originals too? Maybe add in a FW Update?

Thanks for the updates and keep it up!

Ielhox said:

January 24th, 2:36 pm

DMC4…I know it was just a demo, but I’m very displeased to say that it froze my whole system up. I’m about to give it another try. Hopefully my satisfying game play won’t be interrupted again.

marcindpol said:

January 24th, 2:40 pm

please SONY i want to be able to hide the information about the game i play in XMB friends list, simply do not want some of my friends to know what games i own!.
maybe sounds stupid but this would be handy!
please include such a option in future update!, please!

sorry for my english, i am from eastern europe:)

MrCamo said:

January 24th, 2:49 pm

I played PJ Monsters off of the Japan site, free demo yesterday. It is awesome and addicitve. I played the demo twice an acn’t wait!! I should have brought my PSP to work so i could download it. BTW i thought Pixeljunk racers was awesome, if you have a big TV and some serios game thumbs.

ftwrthtx said:

January 24th, 2:52 pm

Very good update. Thanks!

MrCamo said:

January 24th, 2:55 pm

@40 make yourself unavailable when you are playing twisted metal so your eastern uero friends do not laugh at you., Hit triangle on your name on the far left by your friends and select it there.

TheGraciousOne said:

January 24th, 3:05 pm

b60904 said:

stlthriot said:

January 24th, 3:13 pm

Wow, if it wasn’t for the DMC4 demo download this would be another lame week… I’d even take a firmware update that adds some fun new feature.

Oh, and is there going to be a demo of PixelJunk Monsters? Looks interesting.
