The LBP DLC is quite disappointing. Where’s the “rare week 1” t-shirt that was promised along with the Motorstorm that Europe got? Seems like we’re gettin screwed on that end of the deal.

NewYork214 said:

November 6th, 8:09 pm

whats up with europe getting to extra LBP costumes its supposed to be other way around.

NewYork214 said:

November 6th, 8:09 pm

two*. and i thought we were supposed to get that week 1 t-shirt this week.

ScoobieDoYa said:

November 6th, 8:24 pm

Qore home socom beta resistance 2 beta
got nothing qore=RIPOFF

ScoobieDoYa said:

November 6th, 8:25 pm

Thanks for the lbp costumes

SuperSonic1305 said:

November 6th, 8:26 pm

I pressed L2 in Qore and nothing happened? What’s going on here? This is one of the worst Qore episodes yet.

crystalx3d said:

November 6th, 8:30 pm

So… are we gonna get a special week #4 t-shirt now or what? Because that’s how long some of us will have had LBP by the time this “ultra rare exclusive awesome t-shirt” ever shows up. And for people complaining about the price, MM never said the week #1 t-shirt would be free. In fact, by not saying that it was pretty obvious that it would cost something. Maybe they just decided not to release it at all in north america after all the complaining that happened here last week.

40cal said:

November 6th, 8:31 pm

I hope that the limited time costume for LBP last long enough for me to be able to download it for free. I just sent my PS3 in for repair today.

Still cant get over the fact that the damn thing broke in the first place. Oh, and don’t get me started on the $149.00 that you are charging me to fix it. Its not like I don’t own over 40 [DELETED] blu-ray movies and haven’t bought about 20 games. Day one 60 gig launch system, yeah the $600.00 one that I waited in line for 27 hours for and only lasted 5 days short of 2 years.

Yeah, one of your best and most loyal customers is pissed off right now. Another $149.00 and I cant play Little Big Planet or Resistance 2, Hell your lucky I still picked Resistance 2 up at all.

crystalx3d said:

November 6th, 8:35 pm

Also, no psp content for the second week is pretty weak. Seriously, why did you even bother remodeling the psp and pc stores if there wouldn’t be any new content?

When are we going to see the linger in shadows soundtrack up here on the store? It was already promised and Plastic already has a .zip up on their website with the music. How difficult can it be to just throw it up there?

So I purchased Qore and saw that it said HOME would be available Q4 2008. Last time I checked we are in Q4 2008. What’s up with that SCEA? I have been waiting for 2 years and still I have only seen videos of HOME. I am beginning to think HOME is a mystical land where unicorns and santa claus live..somewhere similar to Atlantis.

rahstar2003 said:

Why cant the photo capture feature just be added to the xmb. Heres how: When you hold down the home button on your ps3 it brings up the quit game, turn off ps3, etc. There should be a option “ENABLE CAMERA” once enabled you should be able to tap the home button to take a picture. Obviously this will take away the in game xmb feature, BUT ONLY WHILE THE CAMERA IS ENABLED! So dont get your panties in a bunch. When your done snapping away, hold down the home button again hit “DISABLE CAMERA” and your back to your normal setup and can use in game xmb again. The reason i say do it this way is because it never interfers with any of the controls in a game there for it should be no problem and now its the ps3 snapping pictures, not some in game feature. I just dont see why this wouldnt work.

rahstar2003 said:

November 6th, 8:45 pm

Theres too many great games for you guys to be complaining about a store update dissappointment.

Enigma777 said:

November 6th, 8:50 pm

Florida Gators theme please!!! and [DELETED]? MGS4 demo is kinda late, no? Then gain.. it took Warhawk over a year…. Killzone 2 Demo better come before releasetime, u hear!

Speaking of Killzone 2, anyone in the beta? If yes, send me a friend invite, so we can play :D

In-game media server support. Please.

Where’s my BigMac and fries?!! I specifically ordered a BigMac and fries, and all i got was this measly order of fries and a BigMac!

SONY, I DEMAND A RECOUNT! (… and can you lend me buck? I am thirsty and have no change for a pop)

arkangel220 said:

November 6th, 9:37 pm

Hopefully some psp store content next week, nice update

jkbgamer said:

November 6th, 9:39 pm

Where are the downloadable games?psone games?arcade titles?anything?

herb420 said:

November 6th, 9:46 pm

Man people sure can… Complain. I haven’t yet got my Qore Home invite, but at least Qore is almost ready to watch.

And since I have been a subscriber since June, I should have an invite locked in. Right?

Soseki said:

November 6th, 9:50 pm

Good luck with that, herb. I spent weeks fighting Qore and Sony for a SOCOM beta invite and received it only two days before the beta ended; I also received a Resistance 2 code only because I signed up at the site (never got one from Qore). And yes, I subscribed the first day, so don’t hold your breath for a timely invite or one without a fight.

wyldekat said:

November 6th, 9:50 pm

when are the home invites being sent out for qore subscribers?

PSN= wyldekat

herb420 said:

November 6th, 9:56 pm

Hey Sony,

Don’t know if it is on my end or your, but all day today I have been getting logged out of the servers every few minutes. Please fix this if it is you.

It always logs me out if I enable my media server, but today it is just happening at random.

ScoobieDoYa said:

November 6th, 10:01 pm

Qore subscriber i wouldnt count any invites
I recieved none from the last 2 betas and i dont think there will be any for home either


maxerus said:

November 6th, 10:21 pm

Hmmph…….No COD WAW beta :(

power7714 said:

November 6th, 10:46 pm

Where are the promised “home beta” invites for subscribers? Other than that, great episode.

coramoor_ said:

November 7th, 12:54 am

people have to stop whining, jeez, and to the guy talking about picture features, it’s a lot more complicated then that, you have to manage memory, set it up so that you can have a camera mode in the game that you can engage with, all games don’t pause in the xmb etc


what do you mean they’re lucky, you’re 1 person, the 20 dollars sony gets on the game isnt a big deal at all to them, they know it’ll sell millions, what is 1 less

iapetus said:

November 7th, 1:20 am

US PSN users complaining about not getting the same stuff as Europe? Seriously? Perhaps you should try getting the quality of updates we get for a few months, and we’ll have all the demos and other releases that you guys get and we miss out on.

As for the shirt, it’s priced at £3.99 – that’s $6.30 at today’s exchange rate. You seriously want that?

TinkerGuru said:

November 7th, 2:14 am

I’ve been subscribed to the Q sense #2, and find it BS…big time BS.
– It comes out beginning of the month?..if the beginning is 1-2 weeks into the month.
– It has premo demos/downloadable/informative content?..when someone sees fit to release it.
– I will not be resubscribing when it hits.

To note: I would think a “playstation blog” would blog about one of their biggest releases of the year. On the day of release…but that didn’t happen. Find that sad.

FeaturePreacher said:

November 7th, 2:40 am

Can someone who got into the Home beta confirm the quality of the boob physics? Are they Soul Calibur 4 quality or not?

Trasherhead said:

November 7th, 3:14 am

What I want to know is where the hell that Home beta that I was promised by sony from being an annual Qore Subscriber

Jonezybaby said:

November 7th, 4:16 am

When do we get the beta codes if we have subscribed within the past like month?


chanskie said:

November 7th, 4:29 am

i paied $8.99 AUD for my week 1 rare T-shirt in Australia~~~! that is even more expensive than a T-shirt i can buy in real life….but, but, the sackboy is too cute….!!

cme73 said:

November 7th, 5:32 am

What happened to the possible Home Beta with the Qore membership?

cme73 said:

November 7th, 5:33 am

What happened to the Qore Home beta for annual members of Qore

SleepySlim said:

November 7th, 6:33 am

You promised us HOME BETA invites for Qore Annual Subscribers…



This is unacceptable! We have been waiting for far too long, and we have every right to be upset that you keep teasing us and yanking it away again. :-(

herb420 said:

November 7th, 6:38 am

Has anyone who subscribed to Qore got a beta code yet? If so shout out so we can at least chalk it up to volume. I don’t want to complain, just some verification that I am in fact waiting for something that will happen. I have been a subsriber since issue one and am just curious.

Anxiously waiting

November 7th, 7:58 am

I’ll be expecting something very surprising coming soon. I HAVE NO IDEA what it is yet. But when you guys are DONE with it, and I MEAN DONE. ANNOUNCE IT, RELEASE IT, win the console war. (Im not speaking of PlayStation Home) Start spreading a huge rumor guys. NOW.

PS : I just had a gallon of coffee. ;)

luminousCranium said:

November 7th, 8:47 am


I haven’t had a chance to rent MGS4, but now there’s frickin demo!! That’s sweet! I really didn’t expect this game to put out a demo!

foolkiller79 said:

November 7th, 8:51 am


I agree, we need a Kentucky Wildcats theme. They are only the winningest team in college basketball.
Instead I keep seeing SEC rivals staring me in the face.

Oh well, at least Florida has been left out too.

Bluefox75 said:

November 7th, 9:56 am

I’d like to see a demo of LBP. I can’t rent it locally and I want to be sure I like it.

November 7th, 10:53 am

why in the world is playstation so slow? it takes all games too long to get updates….i beat all my games twice and when its a new update with trophies i have 2 start all over….this is not fair

TrustyGem said:

November 7th, 11:12 am
