Thank you Qore for reminding me about White Knight Chronicles, I completely forgot about it. I can’t wait for it to come out!

I’m still waiting for PS One classic: Gex 2 Enter the gecko to come and I can’t wait for that Infamous add on too.

December 3rd, 10:26 pm

Hi, I would like to see some more themes (you know, the ones that move) that are not game related. I want see like a night theme…starry twinkling night, stormy night (thunder), rain, weather themes, or just nature themes in general. And seasonal themes wouldnt hurt either. winter…the snow falls on the XMB icons…stuff like that, get creative with it. Leaving it up to the game devs just limits the possibilities. come on got it in ya!

Still waiting for preview videos or images of the products you want me to buy.

I am not going to buy anything from your store that does not have a preview. I can’t believe it has taken you this long to capture a video and post it with the products you are selling.

Do you need to borrow my digital camera for next weeks update?

spunnups said:

Any word on some new Avatars?

There seems to be a bug with the Playstation Store. My friend says that the Killzone 2 DLC Bundle Pack is listed under Special Offers along with the Killzone 2 Flash & Thunder Pack in his Playstation Store account (he sees 10 items in Special Offers). I don’t see the Killzone 2 DLC Bundle Pack but do see the Killzone 2 Flash & Thunder Pack under Special Offers in my Playstation Store account (I see 9 items in Special Offers). I’ve already purchased the Flash & Thunder Pack but would add the DLC Bundle Pack if I could.

I love the updates via Facebook. That way I don’t have to goto my PS3 every-time to see what’s new!

SgtRufus said:

December 4th, 3:23 am

Who is actually buying these ‘premium’ themes like “Bikini-Nurse Hook Up”? Obviously somebody is as they keep churning them out week after week. They all look like the same artist took all of 5 minutes to throw together. Just make sure there’s a little cartoon skin and some kids keep buying them I guess.

pedrohabreu1993 said:

December 4th, 3:45 am

when will you put formula one 2009 and pro evolution soccer 2010 for the psp on the store? two great games that I can’t play on my PSP GO!

HypnoToast said:

December 4th, 4:20 am

The new avatar delay is just simply ridiculous. The lack of updates on the matter apart from the usual “coming soon” promises are are shameful for a company like Sony. Three years after PS3 launch we still have pretty much the same lame avatars available with a few exceptions. This is sending a very poor customer support image Sony, in all fronts.

Resident Evil 3, nice! Might even have to get Call of Duty :)
Oh and “Sync Trophies” works now for me, o snap!

Happy Friday everyone!

I’m glad to c that the Bayonetta demo is out. Cant wait to go n play it!!
Good update Grace!

Bayonetta wasn’t bad, but [DELETED] has gotten better since the 70s.

i had a couple of questions-

is there an ETA for new Avatars?

why didnt the US Store get a free Dynamic Theme offer?

OMGitb said:

How about Crisis Core? Some of us have the PSP Go and want to download that piece of awesomeness! WTF please put it up on the playstation store now!

mopies said:

December 4th, 8:13 am

add more beatles songs like help, eleanor rigby, and strawberry fields

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

December 4th, 8:42 am

Crisis Core coming any time soon to the PSN?
I bought my PSP Go, but no Crisis Core makes me wonder if i made the right choice

SavageWolf87 said:

December 4th, 8:46 am

Please hear my CRY!!!!!!!!! bring Final Fantasy 8&9 to the ps1 classics part of the store…. oh and some breath of fire 3 wouldnt hurt either, those are such AWSOME games so PLEASE bring them to the store

Janks01 said:

December 4th, 9:22 am

Where are the premium avatars promised?

austinite04 said:

December 4th, 9:34 am

This weeks PSN store update is okay, I’ve seen better. I hope that the Christmas Week Update is monumental… Pixel Junk Shooter looks like another great game from Q Games. I am also looking forward to getting Mod Nation Racers. That game will be a GOTY for 2010 no doubt. I wonder what the first weekly update of 2010 will have???!?!?!

“Relive the original Call of Duty experience in HD”

Umm who would want to play that old game? why not just play the modern war version?

Qore sucks!

Lame update!

xinvazn said:

when will we expect final fantasy 8 and 9 on psn?

Spyroluver88 said:

December 4th, 11:44 am

I have to ask, when you post stuff like LBP add-ons could you specify whether it is PS3 or PSP? Thanks!

SiegfreidZ said:

December 4th, 11:57 am

When are we going to see Gauntlet: Legends/Dark Legacy and Legend of Legaia?

Pukadon said:

December 4th, 1:22 pm

I think it’s a concern that you released digital versions of psp games like LBP and Gran Turismo but I can actually get them for less on Amazon. It should be much less expensive to go the download-only route, particularly for brand new games.

synshadows1 said:

December 4th, 1:29 pm

Ohh PSN… please I beg you…give me Final Fantasy 8…. Ive been counting the days when it will come out i even bought a 16gb memory stick just for the sake of it!! don’t let me down PSN please release it by Christmas. Also, dont forget to release other good games like Driver or GT2 and 3. and maybe GTA:1 and 2. Cuz i dont wanna pay 400$ for a backwards compatible PS3 >.<

luminum_x said:

December 4th, 2:44 pm

Is there any news when crisis core is coming out on psn, I just bought a psp go and i had to sell all fifteen of my games which included crisis core. I don’t actually get the go until Christmas so i guess i can wait. stinks that im going to rebuy all my games and i already bought the cards.

Demonhunter84 said:

December 4th, 4:08 pm

RE3 is nice been wanting it to appear on PSN. Bayonetta demo is nice been wanting to play a clone of DMC.


December 4th, 5:56 pm

December 4th, 6:03 pm

Sony, Square-Enix, Game Arts, Who ever is in control of the IP, Needs to release Grandia (PSone Classic) on PSN. I wanna play Grandia on my PSP gosh darn it.

You released it for the Japanese PSN, Give it to us in the US and UK already!

Elvick_ said:

December 7th, 1:55 am

I’m so sick of the 1000s of half naked women themes you get on PSN.

There are zero themes for women or gay men to download. Not that I’d pay for one, when I can simply go online and get a better picture for free.

But it’s really getting annoying that SCE is so clearly forgetting that gamers aren’t just straight men.

December 7th, 5:06 am

Happy days free tekken 6 DLC! Keep it coming Sony! though i’ll ask, when will there be more Dragon Age: Origins DLC? I’ve bought the collectors edition so I’ll be looking to add to my DLC!

berzirk said:

December 7th, 11:29 am

Hmm…tough call. Is this the worst update for PSP users since the launch of the Go? I can’t think of a worse one of the top of my head.

barnaclejoe said:

December 7th, 11:29 pm

I wish there were new free costumes for LBP… I was so careful to pick these seasonal ones up last year… but it leaves me with nothing new to collect without shelling out money.


ALSO… PixelJunk Shooter next week!! WOO. Christmas is coming early this year. :p

Greenko said:

December 8th, 12:53 am

wow…. what a surprise! still 0 free dynamic themes…… why can’t you guys follow through on the small things in a timely manner? If you “SONY” won’t give us them , give us a program to make them. I know even custom gif files would be cool to see, then we won’t need a program.

My Point: GIVE US WHAT YOU TOLD US YOU WOULD OR LET US MAKE OUR OWN STUFF! :) Thank you. anyone feel the same!? post it and lets get what we deserve!! :) peace

MaximzMcdohl said:

December 8th, 12:29 pm

i agree i downloaded two themes(for ps3, disgaea 3 themes) and the only change i saw was the background wallpaper…kinda sad i was hoping i’d see different buttons and stuff but to see just a background change that doesnt even catch my eye its like …ugh -_- and to top it off i cant even have the background as a seperate .jpg or .png file so that when an acuatal dynamic them does come out i could keep the background. honestly i would love to just make my own background and buttons/icons.
