What a crappy update. When was the last time we got a PS1 game?

Jonezybaby said:

November 6th, 5:16 pm

Not a bad update, lookin 4ward to lookin into qore, any ideas when i get the home beta invite if i only subscribed within the past month?


aimlessdrift said:

November 6th, 5:16 pm

It’d be great if they had Kimimaro to download for Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm. I guess I’m holding off on buying the game for this week at least.

GuyBrown said:

November 6th, 5:17 pm

Will Qore ever be available in Australia?

Its Sony original, so surely this shouldnt be a licensing issue?


BIG-SLUG said:

November 6th, 5:17 pm

I agree. I wonder if they’re going to come out with more cars for MC:LA. there’s like half as many as there were in Dub edition

codac said:

November 6th, 5:18 pm

Stupid update. I am so fed up with nothing for the psp store. I am about to kill someone. I really hate it when you don’t add stuff to the psp store.

hife said:

November 6th, 5:19 pm

Love’n the update. MGS4 has been getting more and more tempting. The demo will help me put it in the “buy” or “don’t buy” category. Thanks!

Ramage said:

November 6th, 5:21 pm

@ everyone talking about the ‘week one t-shirt’.

From what I’ve heard that t-shirt isn’t limited, the only limited items are the halloween and the LAUNCH SUIT…get it cuz he’s an astronaut since LBP launched…hahaha…nm

I don’t remember them talking about a launch shirt but I do remember the suit. The shirt is just some supposed “rare” item. I guess it’ll be rare due to the fact that nobody will be paying for that [DELETED] .

BIG-SLUG said:

November 6th, 5:21 pm

Also, whats with the free qore download vouchers from PSTOM? I could have saved my 24.99 since I already get the magazine. Bogus!

BIG-SLUG said:

November 6th, 5:22 pm

AND you can’t preview the premium themes anymore. It says go to the website but they haven’t updated it yet. Also pretty weak.

Charliesdad said:

November 6th, 5:27 pm

@56 I wouldn’t worry…usually the PSTOM vouchers only get you the basic content and demos… Beta keys and such aren’t included with those type of Qore downloads. At least that’s the way it’s worked in the past like with R2. Check the fine print.

bigshynepo said:

November 6th, 5:30 pm

What gives with these disruptive media publishers themes?!?! 1.99 for two stupid wallpapers!?

Make the premium themes worth paying for or take them off of PSN.

Chrisrahosiris said:

November 6th, 5:32 pm

Downloading the costumes as we speak. Great update this week.

DarkAkatosh said:

November 6th, 5:34 pm

Yay, another terrible update.

PSWii2008 said:

November 6th, 5:38 pm

They just now release a demo for MGS4? As good as it might be, it won’t do the whole game justice. If you are considering downloading the demo, do yourself a favor and buy the game. It’s amazing! It’s the first game I played on my PS3, only because I bought the MGS4 bundle.

I’m sure the NCAA basketball demo is average. I’m not much of a sports fan.

And about time for the LBP costumes! I think they should’ve just not bothered with the Halloween costume, and just released the “Week 1” costume with the “Spaceman” costume. Halloween was almost a whole week ago!

And as far as themes, I might download the PJM theme. I don’t really like the PJM themes I have right now, so this new one might be good.

And also, “Sexy Ninja Girls?” Is it just girls in ninja costumes, or [DELETED] girls with ninja-like accessories? Either way, I would never pay to see hot women, no matter how gorgeous they are! I can just see them in “Preview”, and it’s free!

PSP Store update:


What was the point of making the store available on the PSP and such if it’s never used? Thousands of PS1 games you could have put up, a trailer, theme, something.

pick-e said:

November 6th, 5:52 pm

Another week, another load of *nothing* for the PSP. When can we expect an english version of the ad-hoc party program? Can we get at least that much for the little system?

kspraydad said:

November 6th, 5:56 pm

Another disappointing week for PSP fans. Why, EXACTLY, did SONY bother with a PSP accessible store if they are going to relase ZERO content? Or are we going to have a special post for PSP with a surprising amount of content?

SCEA/SONY…iPhone and Android are going to kick your mobile gaming rear end and DSi next year…MOVE NOW before the PSP is irrelevant.

Money1 said:

November 6th, 5:56 pm

oh great…look…another week of people makin a fuss lol

kspraydad said:

November 6th, 5:56 pm

Oh ya…1/5

kspraydad said:

November 6th, 5:57 pm

@64…I bought a PSP with the promise that there was an online store…since the store has been launched I think it has had content 1 out of 4 weeks…I have a right to be pissed.

darkiewonder said:

November 6th, 5:59 pm

Thanks so much for putting up great content on the psp store! Much appreciated!

what0080 said:

November 6th, 6:04 pm

Far be it for me to question your logic, but why are you releasing a demo for a game that:

1) was released 5 months ago…
2) anybody who HAS a PS3 already has…

BTW, when is the Home OPEN beta?

enrichovega said:

November 6th, 6:10 pm

Nice update…however we STILL don’t have a theme for my school up in the store. How about some love for the #3 team in the nation. Those Nittany Lions of Penn State.

WE ARE!!!!!!!!!

PENN STATE!!!!!!!!

Fenrokk said:

November 6th, 6:15 pm

this feels like the psn on a diet… i want my psn to fat, i want it to be obese with content!!! OBESE I TELL YOU!!!

DMeisterJ said:

November 6th, 6:16 pm

@ 62 and 63

Well stated. Something for the PSP would be nice. SOMETHING. It’s like it doesn’t exist!

lakaihigh said:

November 6th, 6:17 pm

any1 who hasn’t played MGS4 needs to d/l the demo, try it, then run; nay sprint to your local store and pick up the game! in that order. theres really no excuse now guys. its great to see you guys put up a demo for it. I’m gonna go back to it and play through it again and keep my fingers crossed that Kojima/Konami add trophies. please? that will make it that more justified and enjoyable. oh and thanks for the two free LBP costumes, I’m loving that space one with the pumpkin head.


grimgard said:

November 6th, 6:22 pm

Lame! Qore sucks the big one and you jacked us by not giving us the T-shirt, motor storm,and dead space DLC for LBP. shame on you

D1rk-Knight said:

November 6th, 6:22 pm

Nice update but I have a question.

I live in Saudi Arabia & the items in our PSN store cost more than the American store by 3$ can you please explain why?

Bu the way the cost change suddenly after the release of Mega Man 9 & Wipeout HD.

kinetic808 said:

November 6th, 6:28 pm

I didn’t pick up MGS4 yet. I am actually looking forward to trying the demo. It’s one of the games I was meaning to pick up but just never did. What’s with all the complaining? If you already have it…don’t download it…problem solved. (tada)

MeltTech said:

November 6th, 6:31 pm

You said Qore subscribers would get HOME beta invites? Where is mine. I just spent an hour prancing while Qore downloaded and NO HOME! WHAT GIVES?

pick-e said:

November 6th, 6:31 pm

MGS4’s demo is only 5 months late? Warhawks demo didn’t come until over a year later! :p

VixDiesel said:

November 6th, 6:33 pm

where’s the week one tshirt for lbp?

cmargary said:

November 6th, 6:46 pm

Any annual qore subscribers hot the Home code via email? not me… just waiting to download qore to see…

MeltTech said:

November 6th, 6:49 pm

@79 I’ve downloaded it already and nothing. No emails, nothing. Once again seems to be a waste of $25. I’m still waiting on a free game download that most subscribers got. Guess I can download Calling All Cars again and have two copies of a game I’ve played 5 times.

What a waste.

MidnightRider1 said:

November 6th, 6:52 pm

We wait a week for our LBP costumes to come to PSN but we don’t even get our “week one t-shirt” that Europe got as a DLC this week. What gives?

coramoor_ said:

November 6th, 6:59 pm


it’s totally irrational to expect them to give you another free game if you already owned calling all cars, it’s a free deal and since you already had it, you don’t get your choice of a free game, you just live without, stop whining about nothing

Sephiroth said:

November 6th, 7:04 pm

As I’ve said many many times, I feel ripped off by this whole Qore thing, I’m a [DELETED] annual subscriber since first month and yet I never received my Resistence Beta invite, even when you clearly mouthed off here in the forum u were gonna invite all the people that is annual subscriber, so where’s ur word? Are you gonna do the same thing with Home? You gonna promise to send invites to every annual subscriber out there and later don’t fullfil your promises?

And where the heck are the PS1 games AND more downloadable GOOD games for the PSP???

DragonFire353 said:

November 6th, 7:05 pm

Sony, MM, LBP… why? Can you please at least give us a release date for the sephiroth costume? I really really want that costume … and please make sephiroth’s sword available as well and not just his costume please.

triple_lei said:

November 6th, 7:07 pm

Me in the future:

“Wow, I’m loving this new Capcom store!”


LordStrike said:

November 6th, 7:10 pm

so will anual Qore give the Home beta or not?

AceOfSpades725 said:

November 6th, 7:13 pm

where’s the LBP week one shirt?

i’m still waiting on a home invite, hopefully it’ll come soon *Crosses fingers* guess i’ll watch this months episode of Qore about it for the mean time!

jayd1k said:

November 6th, 7:13 pm

i don’t have the latest eps. of qore in my download list. i can’t find it in my new features list either. i’m an annual subscriber sooooo did i miss something?

wavesln said:

November 6th, 7:27 pm

Nice update. Qore and LBP costumes clearly the highlights. Shockingly Europe actually gets a better update (minus Qore of course).

Jeigh said:

November 6th, 7:39 pm

How ignorant can a gaming community be? WHY did they release it five months later? Are you seriously asking that with straight faces or are you laughing to yourselves behind your computer screens? Demos reduce sales far more often than they increase them. What happens far more often than not is that people who WERE going to get the game didn’t like the demo and so decided against it. By comparison, the number of people who are won over by demos are rare. With MGS4 sales already poised to strike high numbers, it could ONLY hurt to release the demo around the time of the game’s release. It’s intelligent financial design to say the least when it comes to exclusives.

whatisdelicious said:

November 6th, 7:39 pm

Great update, though I’m disappointed that the MotorStorm LBP skin isn’t here yet.

Also, we aren’t a huge school, but a University of Mary Washington theme? Would Be Awesome.

LordChocoSlime said:

November 6th, 7:42 pm

What’s like PSP owners get screwed yet again… for the 3rd week in a row. What was the point of launcing a PSP-accessible PlayStation Store and re-launcing the PC version of that store last month only to not update the PSP section of that store the following week, add a single trailer the week after that, and have no new content this week?!

The past three weeks would have been the perfect opportunity for Sony to drum up business for the PS Store by having a slew of classic PS one games, UMD games, and even some original games, demos, trailers, wallpapers, & themes available for download. Instead, the only thing they gave PSP owners the past three weeks was a trailer.

TheHater said:

November 6th, 7:51 pm

Why does Qore annual subscription take so long to download? I been download it for about 45 minutes now, and it only downloaded 45MB so far? I have a 7MB connection, and every other stuff I downloaded finish downloaded in less than 15 minutes.

gtmartin69 said:

November 6th, 8:01 pm

Yea, where are the GOOD team themes? If you ever put a University of Kentucky Wildcats theme up there I would buy it in a heartbeat.

PLEASE gimme UK theme!!!!!!!
