There’s nothing RETRO about those Megaman pay to download items. :(

fdas said:

October 9th, 4:27 pm

Maybe off topic, but any word on the resistance beta?

hife said:

October 9th, 4:29 pm

Nice update.

Question though… I thought there was supposed to be some way to preview the Paid Themes. I don’t want to buy any unless I know exactly what I’m getting. Please and thanks.

No PSOne games updated: Check

DwightSchruteDM said:

October 9th, 4:32 pm

Are PS1 classics over with? I dug them but have they been officially abandoned? It seems like there hasn’t been one in a while.

Also would it ever be possible to allow psp downloads to be playable on the PS3?

phpdad said:

October 9th, 4:33 pm

Talk to me about the echochrome pack. Are these new unique stages, or will I have already solved them on the PS3?

FabMatt said:

October 9th, 4:34 pm

Great update! Can’t wait to try out the Valkryia demo!

TheOnlyBlackJu said:

October 9th, 4:38 pm

Where the hell is Soldner-X and Red Baron Arcade? They were listed by IGN for today.

Solid Squirrel said:

Let the nickel and diming begin!

NeoMagus said:

lame update, not buying any of these Themes either sorry

CrimsonFox13 said:

Hah, I knew a Warhawk demo was coming. No console game has given me so much fun and hours of gametime.


Enforcer_X said:

Warhawk owns!

Dylan Jobe ROCKS!

PlayStation kick ass!

This blog is by far my most favorite and most visited website EVER!

It’s so nice to finally have a voice in the industry and I am sure that sentiment is mutual!

Yeah one more thing!

You buy Qore and you get a few ads, you buy a Magazine you flip through pages of ads. What’s the difference? You buy a DVD you get previews, you pay to go to a movie, you get previews. All can be skipped if you want.

HanSolo said:

serversurfer said:

October 9th, 4:57 pm

Is there really no way to get new issues of Qore to appear at the top of my downloads queue instead of back with the stuff I got in June? I already have to scroll through 57 items to find the new issue, and it’s really annoying.

BStreakX said:

October 9th, 5:00 pm

Three questions:

1. When is part 6 of the Dead Space animated comic going to appear on PSN? It’s already on GameTrailers dot com.

2. When will a demo of Valkyria Chronicles be available? I read that Europe got the demo today.

3. I can’t wait to download Linger in Shadows! (I guess that’s not a question.)

AdeptHavoc said:

October 9th, 5:03 pm

What the hell? I try to access the PlayStation Store and just the waves sit there. I press O and my PS3 freezes. >.<

FritoZ said:

October 9th, 5:03 pm

thanks for the free themes!

always appreciated!

great demo, i didn’t realize dead space was out already!

Geoblaze said:

October 9th, 5:04 pm

Alright, i am a little ticked off at you guys right now…

I go to my download lost in account managment… and i see no Qore. I see the individual Qores i purchased before i go the subscription, but i see no UPDATED version of Qore. As in, Qore Episode 5….

Geoblaze said:

October 9th, 5:05 pm

also: I never got my socom confrontation beta key DESPITE having a subscription that started before it was released.

Wolfgare said:

October 9th, 5:07 pm

I don’t mind paying for certain themes(if they interest me enough).. there just needs to be a better way to preview them..
I already bought one and decided I didn’t like it.

For everyone wanting more ps1 games on the ps3 store, you may want to look or avoid looking at the following link:

Currently there are 239 ps1 titles on the Japanese ps3 store.

Dice_for_Death_ said:

October 9th, 5:09 pm

Wow. $2.99… for 216 KILOBYTES of additional features.

I am never buying Capcom again. Glad I passed on MM9.

Chaosdnc said:

October 9th, 5:09 pm

Linger in the Shadows is not a game demo. People who say sony is charging for demos either can’t read or just ignorant. Please stop complaining and enjoy the awesome update good job sony.

FeaturePreacher said:

October 9th, 5:10 pm

The premium themes are just going to encourage people to produce them on the internet for free. I hope Sony doesn’t get stupid and start to put measures in their firmware which stop the use of free themes from non-Sony sources.

FeaturePreacher said:

October 9th, 5:11 pm

Great update! Plenty of stuff to chose from. How on the next premium theme update can we get a Notre Dame Fighting Irish theme on there.

meepmoopmeep said:

October 9th, 5:11 pm

thanks for the continuous support for HotShots.

TheInfectedBy590 said:

October 9th, 5:14 pm

Great update! :) Already got Linger and the new Qore!

FeaturePreacher said:

October 9th, 5:14 pm

There should be a firmware update for the psp and ps3 next week. I believe the psp firmware will introduce the psp store that can be accessed directly from the psp. The ps3 firmware should certainly introduce the ps3 features for the official bluetooth headset.

darkspectre said:

October 9th, 5:18 pm

paid themes? Sony, are you serious? Having themes & wallpapers as free downloads is what sets PLAYSTATION Network apart from the pay-for-everything Xbox Live!. If you’re gonna ask gamers to pay for themes, have trophies be used as currency for the PLAYSTATION Store.

MUGEN02 said:

October 9th, 5:21 pm

Update your servers for faster download speeds. I’m only downloading about 100-150kbs(wired connection!). I can get 1.3-1.6mbs from downloading things on my pc and that other console. Why doesn’t the ps3 have a low power state for downloading? and why do only some games support background downloading,gt5 prologue, wipeout hd, little big planet beta, burnout paradise don’t to name a few. A suggestion is to allow qore annual subscribers faster download speeds or to invest in more servers.

MAB said:

October 9th, 5:26 pm

I’m gonna get Linger in Shadows, oh wait… I’m not, PSN doesn’t accept non-us cards… [DELETED]…

Jinzing said:

October 9th, 5:26 pm

Another great update from Sony. Looking forward to watching qore and trying out the demos.

FeaturePreacher said:

October 9th, 5:27 pm

There’s nothing to worry about now from paid themes. Just give it a little time and check internet sites that host free ps3 themes. I’m sure premium themes will end up on those sites for free.

cmargary said:

October 9th, 5:39 pm

I need help really… if I put a download content to download in the background keep in pending after I put a purchase theme kust to know the quality of them (don’t buy them really) and now everything I download keep in pending and I can’t download qore now

sbf717 said:

October 9th, 5:39 pm

Thanks for putting Logan’s Shadow on the store. I downloaded Dark Mirror a few days ago and I’m loving it. I’m so excited about having more PSP games on the store.

Jinzing said:

October 9th, 5:46 pm

I don’t see what the problem is with paid themes. No one is telling you to buy them. If you want to get free themes go get free themes. Sony is doing a great job by giving us plenty of content.

lakaihigh said:

October 9th, 5:50 pm

wifi PSN store for PSP… please? LOL great update. imma go check out those premium themes. see what they are really worth.


Money1 said:

October 9th, 5:53 pm

i’ll try vc demo after wrestling n b ball game, if y’all wanted an all halloween themed qore i would’ve put the ghost busters game demo

adam_979 said:

October 9th, 5:54 pm

if you guys want the Valkyria Chronicles demo, just make a uk psn account. in the uk store there is a free demo for Valkyria Chronicles. no need to buy qore

kspraydad said:

October 9th, 5:55 pm

I’m hoping that the launch of the wifi store will open the floodgates on PS1 downloads?

$15 seems a little much for SARPBC in my books given that WipEout was $20…jmho but the developer may wish to go with the volume volume volume sales rather than a price that high…we’ll see though.

I was going to buy my first issue of Qore for VC but I hear it is on the UK PSN so i’ll mosey over there instead.

noelpioroda said:

October 9th, 5:59 pm

Was kinda expecting more for demos than just the WarHawk demo but still great work with the updates! I’ll finally be able to touch Warhawk for the first time once I download it =P.

pick-e said:

October 9th, 6:00 pm

Does anybody know where the PSP echochrome add-on is? Only the bundle is listed under new releases and under the add-on category there is an echochrome icon but it leads to an empty page. :(

MeltTech said:

October 9th, 6:03 pm

Sony are we EVER going to get a free $9.99 credit for us morons that bought QORE for $24.99 AND already had Calling All Cars?

Great to finally see a Warhawk demo. Thanks Dylan! I have like 52% of trophies, I need to break this out on the down week once LBP beta ends and the game is released. Maybe my brother and friends will finally see what I’m talking about when I say Warhawk is awesome. I say the top 3 online games to date so far for PS3 are R:FOM, Warhawk, and COD4. No particular order.

BTW, University of Georgia theme installed. GO DAWGS!!! SIC ‘EM!!! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! BEAT TENNESSEE!

Ohio State will get a theme when they can beat a SEC team.

crystalx3d said:

October 9th, 6:04 pm

I don’t mind paying for Disruptive Media or smobile themes, but I definitely won’t pay a dime for a Bioshock theme, especially considering the sub-par port they expect us to pay 60 bucks for. It’s my opinion that game related themes should always remain free. They’re really nothing more than advertisements and game developers should provide them as a courtesy to their fans if they want to. Charging for them is an insult to their fans. In contrast, themes about sexy beach babes are outside of the gaming realm and their pricetags are justified by their aesthetic quality.

In addition, I will also be passing on the megaman9 addons. Isn’t the only real point of those being able to collect all of the skill points? Since we don’t get rewarded with trophies, what’s the purpose of collecting those skill points anyway? (besides, they’re insanely difficult to collect) Sorry capcom, next time provide some incentives to buy your updates.

Hey guys this is my frist post and just wanted to say that i have been a sony fan since PS and that will never change!!


ChocoDK said:

October 9th, 6:07 pm

I am suprised that Dead Space already has a paid DLC and a free DLC when it doesn’t come out till Tuesday. I think its stupid though that the companies release DLC before the game even comes out and I would never support that.

As for paid themes I disagree with that too because it reminds me of another rival company which I won’t name.

I also think its horrible that we in North America must purchase Qore to get the “EXCLUSIVE” Valkaryia Chronicles demo which has yet to be announced when its free. And those people in Europe get the game for free which I am glad. Sony honestly people have ways to access these things.

In regards to Mega Man 9 and being “oh so retro” Capcom FAILS! Back in 1987 or whatever year there wasn’t a downloadable content stuff. You got what you got in the box and that was all. Trying to nickle and dime people is just sad. I will not be supporting Capcom and only purchased Mega Man 9.

That game thats artistic (sorry forgot the name) I will look into.
