AVATARS??? Soon or next year?

DYNAMIC THEMES??? (maybe a free one, idk advertising the PS3 and how awesome it is)

Great to see The Eye of Indra on the Canadian PSN this week. Good job clearing that up quickly.

The rest of the update is great as well!

Cool update!

Ratchet demo downloading now.

My wife is super excited for Hasbro Game Night. That was one she really missed when I sold my 360.

Mike over on the EU blog quoted saying that the avatars are “coming soon”.I was wondering if that’s the same case here in the states.

Thanks for the update.

October 29th, 7:30 pm

Love to play connect 4 or battleship in the ps3 but not at that price… Hey Sony, make some dynamic themes not gaming related please… Or bring the motorstorm ones from the europe store, they have more and better themes. A abstractal dynamic theme or something will help. The southpark one is a good start but look childish in the preview. Avatars? I don’t care, maybe only a yankees one

Korlithiel said:

October 29th, 7:31 pm

Thanks a lot for this update, I had been eying Super Startdust Portable for a long time and it seems it’s time to seriously consider picking it up. A shame the sale is only a few days as I would probably pick up Myst on Thursday when I get paid again.

Also somewhat disappointed to not see Resident Evil 2 on there, or any Playstation games really.

Still seems like a good update, if a bit lacking considering it’s right before a major holiday.

Caudill said:

Nothing too interesting in the update for me this week, the new R&C demo is nice, but I’ve been playing the whole game for a few days now (fantastic game!).

I would like to say THANK YOU for bringing the Uncharted: Eye of Indra comic to the Canadian store this week, still have NO idea why only the US got it last week, makes no sense, but oh well…going to watch it now :)

Still no Ratchet & Clank Future A Crack in Time dynamic theme? EU got it last week. I’d actually buy a dynamic theme for once, but I guess PlayStation doesn’t want (more of) my money. :/

Ratio91 said:

October 29th, 8:15 pm

hey people that are saying why the update is taking so long, you should be happy that they are making updates. At least the updates come out and they don’t do something bad like miss a week. So, just saying, be happy that Sony is updating the store.

stlcardinal9 said:

October 29th, 8:19 pm

the hasbro games looks good but for 40 BUCKS you could throw in a demo and not 4 weeks later either. just like any other game before i go spend 60 bucks on it i rent it first!!! demos should be standard for every game on release day especially with your no REFUND POLICY.

Tridon said:

October 29th, 8:23 pm

Any plans on any sales soon? I notice that almost all the other countries have sales on a regular basis but we only get the one in the summer. What’s the chances one of every four months or so?

tylerdurden30 said:

October 29th, 8:30 pm

I have to say I am pretty happy with the update. I am a Go owner and I have no complaints. Picked up LocoRoco Midnight Carnival, Zombie Tycoon, Jax and Daxter demo, and also Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. Damn good job. Looking forward to spending alot of money in the upcoming weeks. LBP, Assassin’s Creed, Jak and Daxter, Star Wars Battlefront all on my list next. Hope to see them on the PSN on release dates.

james488 said:

October 29th, 8:39 pm

my silly question is if all psp games are downloadable, and the ps3 is more powerful. why get i download the psp game to my ps3 and play it on the ps3? i really think the games sells would increase (if like the ps1 games) played on both systems.

james488 said:

October 29th, 8:42 pm

if you have a guess at what month resident evil 2 hits the store, please tell.

gettinmoney662 said:

October 29th, 8:43 pm

@114, The PSN store generally has a sale every four months or so. There should be one on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving).

@116, Then no one with a PS3 would buy a PSP.

tigerfan25 said:

October 29th, 8:56 pm

What are the chances any hockey games will be available for download? The other sports are well represented in the store…I’m sure you’ll see many appreciative PSP owners if NHL ’07 was added.

V0L1M1N4L said:

October 29th, 9:06 pm

psst… TRINE demo on the EU store.

Jeeves_Tremor said:

October 29th, 9:16 pm

Oh, Eye of Indra. That only took a week.

So any word on any FHE’s making their way up here? Or should I just give up hope now?

Serge-01W said:

October 29th, 9:29 pm

I still want to know when Dissidia Final Fantasy is going to come out for the GO?

SpiedemoN said:

October 29th, 9:35 pm

Why has the UK store gotten a Trine Demo, and the US Store seems to have been left out?

Also, will the US Store ever be getting free dynamic themes?


Anyways, Jak The Lost Frontier demo is a plus. Ratchet demo would have been a plus, if I hadn’t already bought the game hah (loving it btw). The rest seems to be add-ons and videos (meh).

I’m honestly just waiting for FF VIII, and my hopes will always be too high until it’s released heh.


October 29th, 9:46 pm

Fat princes demo (or any demo for that matter)= happy me :) :) :)

Kxpuc said:

October 29th, 9:59 pm

If only that Hasbro game pack was $19 cheaper i’d be all over it just for Sorry and Yahtzee

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

October 29th, 10:00 pm

I personally thought this was a good update, for what I expect of updates. i’m pretty tight with my wallet so I’ve only bought one thing in my three months thus far owning a ps3 (Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty). i’ve considered getting FF VII but having the original makes me reluctant. However, if it turns out we do get FF VIII, I will buy that without hesitation! So I’ll be waiting to hear more from you on that matter as well, Grace. Thanks a lot for helping us informed.

Kxpuc said:

October 29th, 10:01 pm

oh and never figure out how much you’ve spent on the PSN, i did and found it i spent exactly $493.56 (tax included)

mister1337 said:

October 29th, 10:05 pm

Trashtastic week! Thanks Sony for breaking promises and weasleing $250 out of me for a go. Seriously, I could have just hacked a psp and pirated, but no! The go was going to be cool! The go would get games like Dissidia. Not Yet! You guys better freaking deliver, soon!

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

October 29th, 10:06 pm

Also forgot to mention, but I find interesting that the Ratchet demo is just now going public while I’ve had it at my job (Target) for over a month. I didn’t realize our kiosk disks had anything unique on them besides promotional trailers, but apparently…

tim_AZNPx0 said:

October 29th, 10:07 pm

I wonder if they’re releasing Darkstalkers Chronicles to coincide with Halloween…

Maybe…but thanks for putting it up for download ^^


October 29th, 10:10 pm

What, NO PSOne games?! C’mon, a lot of us look forward to those ‘ya know? It’s just like the Mondays when Nintendo releases their Virtual Console releases and there’s no classic games included, just WiiWare crap. You KNOW you’re better than that, Sony. Don’t let us loyal customers down, it’d be great to see a minimum of 2 PSOne Classics released every Thurs.

Rhez said:

October 29th, 10:29 pm

LocoRoco FTW!!!

I’m still working my way through LocoRoco 2 and still playing LocoRoco for completion. Can’t wait for LocoRoco 3!

October 29th, 11:47 pm

[This post ONLY refers to this week’s PS Store for PSP Update.]

It’s nice seeing another sizeable update for the PSP. While it’s great seeing demos for Crystal Defenders and Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier (which I downloaded already), it would be great if more demos were added more often. Demos are definitely a great way for gamers on the fence to try out a game firsthand. Anyhow, thanks for the update.

adventfire said:

October 29th, 11:54 pm

Okay again as a psp owner I’m feeling a little jipped by Sony. There are many great PSP games out there and I’m still not seeing a lot of great downloadable games. From my understanding of when Sony announced the PSP Go, I thought (and apparently a lot of others did too) that Sony was going to get as many of the games that at least were recent into downloadable form in the playstation store and we are seeing very little. Even some of the more POPULAR PS1 games still sell big and we aren’t seeing many of those either. I would really like to see an article that explains the digital process so we can see why it takes so long. The homebrew company can have a playable PS1 game and PSP games on thier PSP in a matter of hours and Sony cant even do it in months? Maybe Sony needs to hire the Hackers.

SpiritThief said:

October 30th, 12:04 am

Why don’t we just change it to the PSP store? That gets everything 1000x faster then the PS3 ever does.

NeoGuardian86 said:

October 30th, 12:45 am

a decent up date, can’t have a bunch of ‘hardcorez’ every week.

if anything i gotta suggest one thing to you guys at the Sony team.

have a regular time to update it, updating it at 6 PM central time is really not acceptable and then the next do it in the morning central time. At least keep the updates on a good schedule.

Also keep bringing over the PSP back catalog onto PSN. would really liek to download Ace Combat, Metal Gear Solid and Crisis Core.

keimion said:

October 30th, 1:59 am

Will we ever get downloadable versions of Square-Enix PSP games? Like Final Fantasy Tactics WotL, Crisis Core and Dissidia?

Apart from that I’m also holding out for Tales of the World/Eternia and the Star Ocean remakes.

I want to get a PSPGo, but not without at least some of those games :(

muzzar69 said:

October 30th, 2:14 am

Grace would it be possible to compress titles on the PSN store?
im constantly having to miss out on things because there so big, like qore.
i would happily subscribe to that, but i cant afford to waste 1.5GB of my monthly usage every month, if it was less than 1GB i would happily subscribe.
i have lost count the amount of things i have missed out on because i don’t have enough bandwidth, like the R&C demo.
i would love to download that today, but i cant because my net has been caped and if i do to download the 2.3GBs would take several days.
i just don’t understand why everything has to be so big.
also those videos for uncharted 2, there already on the game aren’t they?

KevCity89 said:

October 30th, 3:11 am

Please bring back Megaman X4, X5, X6 again.

Wolf26pack said:

October 30th, 4:42 am

Hi Grace,

I just wanted to know why there hasn’t be a Call of Juarez Bound in Blood Demo Released on the US PSN? It was released on the European PSN over a month ago, I just don’t understand why it hasn’t be released over here & I know that Sony doesn’t really want people to create PSN accounts in other regions so it would be advantageous of them to release content in every regions stores so people won’t have too.

Also if there is a logical explanation to why it hasn’t been released here I would hope you would answer it in next weeks Store post since you don’t really spend all that much time answering questions.


Prem-aka-Prince said:

October 30th, 5:16 am

OMG, Uncharted 2, as much as I love you, bought you on release day, platinum, and have kept playing you… what’s the point in buying these videos in-game if you’re just going to release them for free on the store!? You can’t even pause or rewind when playing them in-game, it’s like you’re a complete sucker if you buy them… and they were 10k each, weren’t they? With all that money I coulda bought some reeeal good stuff… sigh…

Quixote said:

October 30th, 5:44 am

The idea of Dynamic Themes is an interesting one.
I might even by some in the future, I was wondering why some of the other PSN Stores received a Free Dynamic Theme, and the US Store did not.

Pomato-EX said:

October 30th, 5:50 am

Finally, a new dynamic theme, and featuring South Park too! I’m definitely getting it, esepcailly after watching Cartman sing “Poker Face” which was pure win XD
