Devo is ****ing AWESOME.

Then you got Kratos in HSGOOB, Quest For Booty and a demo to a long-awaited (however disappointing) game like Force Unleashed?

Great week, guys. Keep up the good work!

Oh, and bring back backwards compatibility! That’s a Microsoft move, guys!

Lots of great stuff here now and even better coming in the next few months from the blogs Sony has provided.

August 21st, 5:07 pm

Everyone requesting more themes or certain themes needs to visit these sites regularly. There’s some great stuff out there:

Last Guy demo is a lot of fun. There goes another $10. I only have so much money, you’ve got to stop posting so much good stuff for us to buy! :)

There was a post about HD problems d/ling Star Wars before mine. I had the same problem with Qore #3. I had to clear around 3 GB before I could download it…

Hey next anyone working for SCEA(America) see/speaks to anyone from SCEA(Australia) – plz,plz demand that we get the same content as the US. Hell if SONY Australia could report to the US branch instead of SCEE id be very happy…

At the moment the update gave us force unleased demo – but no Q4B also they removed Bionic Commando Rearmed… :(

I too wont stop complaining about PS1 CLASSICS, not until we get the following:

Metal Gear Solid
FinalFantasy 7,8,or even 9
Legend Of Dragoon
Spyro 2
Street Fighter Alpha 3
MortalKombat Trilogy
ResidentEvil 2
Xmen-Vs-Street Fighter
Marvel-Vs-Street Fighter
MegaMan Legends
TOMBA!!!! 1 and 2 Perfect for PSP
Legacy Of Kain:Soul Reaver
Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain
Bloody Roar 2
Breath Of Fire 4
Chrono Trigger
CoolBoarders 3
DukeNukem 1,2,and 3
GranTurismo 2
GrandTheftAuto 2
Parasite Eve 1 and 2
Tenchu 1,2, an 3

Now I know all of this will never be available because of licensing issues, but I have hope most of this will make it out. Please guys stop bringing out titles we DONT want, like coolboraders2, wipeout, lame jumping flash. You guys know the ones we want.

Great update! Just played the Star Wars demo, and this is coming from someone who isn’t too fond of Star Wars, it was great! Looking forward to checking out the Last Guy demo also :)

Oh, and when is Life with PlayStation coming? Video Store for Canada, don’t forget about that one ;)

Great update guys, thanks!
Hey, we haven’t had an update(firmware) in a while, so what’s next? I have a suggestion: how about a screen capture feature? I don’t know how many times I’ve been watching something cool and would have loved to pause and grab a still for my wallpaper. Just a thought.

CrimsonFox13 said:

August 21st, 6:03 pm

Great update! The Last Guy and Force Unleashed I NEED to try out!

Chaos_Bladez said:

August 21st, 6:09 pm

Great update. I just need a PSN card for Ratchet…

Gunwing said:

August 21st, 6:12 pm

Any chance we will get to see the latest Killzone2 MP footage, as well as the stuff for Resistance: Retrobution, and Resistance2, also the new WipEout:HD trailer would be sweet, and the like.

BTW nice update! I hope to be downloading some cool stuff soon!

(As soon as my mom, an dad get off the HDTV!)

Hedrakk said:

August 21st, 6:17 pm

Great update! I wasn’t expecting Ratchet to be release this week. Although I really liked R&C ToD, I think I’ll wait for Quest for Booty, since I’m impatiently waiting for fall releases, like SF II HD, Wipeout HD, Ghostbuster, LBP, SW Force unleashed… It’s going to be a busy Fall!!! … and maybe if we’re lucky, Home… ;)

Ah yeah, almost forgot, Davis and Eastwood updates for Burnout Paradise!

mike223 said:

August 21st, 6:40 pm

whens the warhawk update going up, and do you need to buy it for the jetpacks?

perrandy said:

August 21st, 7:01 pm

this is another outstanding update, keep it coming guys enough said! :)

ThAGriZZ45 said:

August 21st, 7:08 pm

Good update but unfortunately I don’t have enough money for quest for booty at the moment.

Will we ever see vidzone streamed music videos come to the u.s playstation store? and what about play t.v also?

Hope we hear about it more on the blog.

hobo-1 said:

August 21st, 7:12 pm

Pricing structure for some of this stuff is absurd. $22.99 for jeanne d’arc and parappa a straight port of a PSone game? I know Sony doesn’t want to anger retail but $14.99 to $19.99 is the most these old psp games should cost even at retail stores especially since you are not even getting a physical box or manual when you buy them on the PSN store. Then there’s $1.99 price tag for a Kratos skin mod seriously? This is just as bad as the Pain dlc milking for single character skins. The kicker is 14.99 for a 2-3 hr Ratchet game with no replayability, secrets, or anything that doesn’t make this feel like an expensive demo/epilogue? 9.99 is what it should have been but might as well try to gouge the fans first!

This makes me dread what they will try to charge for Wipeout HD assuming it actually gets released and not delayed yet again along with the upcoming Last Guy. Since we got a PSone game last week I assume the next one probably won’t be out until maybe end of October or mid November considering how the “awesome” release schedule trends for all things PSN.

I’m really curious why are the US and European stores only updated on Thursdays while Japan sometimes does 2 or 3 updates? I don’t understand why Sony wants to be last to update out of the 3 console manufacturers.

warhawk update goes live next week on the 27th

DarkPlanet said:

Yes! Star Wars Unleashed Demo.

CmdrViper said:

August 21st, 7:42 pm

I guess those of you asking about Life w/ PlayStation failed to read page 1 comments from last weeks Store Update blog. Noel Silvia made clear that Life w/ PlayStation is “NOT related to the PlayStation Store updates.”

I am as anxious as the next guy to get it, disappointed in the release statement at E3, but things happen and I think its for the best. ( aka no bugs )

Anyone that has been around Video Games for a year or more knows that delays happen… and usually to the more anticipated releases.

Other than that, GREAT store update 2 weeks in a row. Kudos to Grace!

August 21st, 9:27 pm

Great update but im kind of upset about the price of Kratos. I thought it would be free like the GoW song for Guitar Hero and such…not cool

Cobra Girl said:

August 21st, 10:24 pm

Nice update guys! Thank you. Any news on the mythical PlayStation Network cards would be very nice however. I’ve heard tell they are “available” but where? I live in Seattle and have yet to find any at game stores or otherwise in this city. Hopefully you guys can start to get some market penetration so the “available” part will become available for real.

thanks and keep up the good work with the store updates.

GhostInTheVoid said:

August 21st, 10:30 pm

Wow gotta say the force was pretty fun. Think I will have to pick that up. Any game that makes you want to walk slower even in battle so you can savor your evilness is a winner for me.

lakaihigh said:

August 21st, 10:41 pm

jam packed to the max, VERY nice! xmas has come early to me as i’ve been waiting to get my hands on the ‘force’. that and the last guy. great update all around and loved that fallen star booster pack vid. 5 stars in my book.

Try Best Buys. I live in SoCal and the Best Buy around here has them.

Enigma777 said:

August 21st, 11:30 pm

Star Wars demo was good… will rent, dunno if i will buy. Last guy sucks. Ever since I saw the development video (which is hilarious) i just can’t take that game seriously

Jahmin said:

August 22nd, 1:39 am

Nice solid update… another plentiful week.
SW: Force Unleashed and Last Guy Demos.
Plus Quest for Booty. The PS3 80GB HD, feelin more cramped every day. Guess im going to have to break down and upgrade.

Keep showing the love sony and i’m always gonna show my support for the best game console out.

what should i do if my R&C Quest for booty cannot downloading i try almost evreything,
an error appears 80029563 please help

PirateThom said:

August 22nd, 3:11 am

I’ve been very, very impressed recently. That’s two weeks in a row I’ve had to fork out some serious cash, Bionic Commando Rearmed last week (a big, big thanks to whoever pulled strings to get that added to the EU store on a Friday of all days) and Quest for Booty and International Track and Field this week (the latter of which I was totally shocked by since I love ITF). Keep uploading good content and we will buy it.

KatanaKing said:

August 22nd, 3:40 am

Can i ask what has happened to LIFE by playstation???
Is it still due for an August release as we only have a few more days and its been pretty quiet.

Thanks for the reply….(if you actually give one)

MidnightBlues said:

August 22nd, 4:14 am

incase you havnt noticed sony….trophies sell games….and you didnt release anything with trophies…

heres a tip..

if the game sucks really bad (cough*last guy*cough) then add trophies and people will buy it anyway..

remember if the game sucks you need trophies period or you wont sell any at all…


August 22nd, 4:20 am

Hey folks, great update again this week, you are on a roll.(keep going) Lots of great demos for us to play around with, The Last Guy, definitely buying that and the same goes for the star wars force unleashed. Definitely buying that also. Loved the videos from the games conference. Just was to know one thing. Why did I not get a Home Beta invite when almost everyone on my friends list got it?? If anything I think I should have gotten pick, what with my account getting hacked last December and then loosing games, so show some love peeps and hook me up.


August 22nd, 4:23 am

oh yeah sorry to dopwble post but 6 days left to JETPACKS in WARHAWK. hey Incog, don’t forget to give credit where it’s due. JETPACKS

August 22nd, 5:10 am

This is such an awesome update! Thank you for the Leipzig videos i’m sure there will be more coming cuz HEAVY RAIN video hasn’t been posted for the people asking about more on Leipzig. The demos…YES!!! All i gotta say about that :)

Do you guys feel like sometimes…maybe you do TOO GOOD of a update that the week after you know has potential to pretty much open up the doors for commentors to say “Man what a crappy update, way to go sony :(” lol I’m sure you guys are waaaaaaay used to that attitude :-P

deadxbabiesxinc said:

August 22nd, 5:12 am

Oh and people that keep complaining on the blog…can you please remember that the SCEA is SEPARATE from SCEE? Thats why they are sooo different, maybe instead of complaining to the WRONG PEOPLE might have a better effect. I mean yeah i feel for you and yeah the US and Japan probably get the best updates but ugh its so annoying. Just make a US account then! I have a Japanese one, its not all that difficult…minus the language barrier
