I’m also one of the few here that seems to be missing episode 21 from their download list >.<

I hope it's there by tomorrow =[

axeblade07 said:

February 4th, 2:33 pm

I see I’m not the only one missing the latest Qore episode. I spelled it right this time as well.

Destiny89 said:

February 4th, 2:33 pm

@ Grace

somehow February Qore episode is not showing for me at all.. i have been a subscriber since last September.. whats going on?? i cant see it anywhere

CatalystX said:

February 4th, 2:33 pm

I’m also missing Qore episode 21 from my download list (as well as the future episodes)…

Ecks said:

February 4th, 2:33 pm

I went searching through my download list as usual for the latest Qore episode – for some reason, all the “upcoming episodes” that I am entitled to for February 2010 onwards have disappered from my list! I have at least 5 months left on my subscription…

Also, looking through the download list to download each episode is *horrible*, I have over 800 entries to scroll through, and the recent episodes are about 300 entries down…

gor1llap1mp said:

February 4th, 2:34 pm

Hi Grace,

Is there any way that we can get email notifications of the Playstation Store update before it actually updates? I mean, if I knew what was coming then maybe I would or wouldnt rush home. It just seems a little redundant when you look at stores like Best Buy, they have a coming soon section and the Playstation Store shouldnt be any differant.

DiscoJer said:

February 4th, 2:34 pm

Hmmmm, neither of Konami’s recent PSP releases is up on the store (Shadow of Destiny, 2 weeks ago, Puzzle Chronicles, either last week or this week, depending on the retailer) are up. But Silent Hill, which came out three weeks ago, was up right away.

I hope the PSPGo’s rumored re-launch is true, and this time Sony decides to you know, actually support it the second time around.

smokey_vols said:

February 4th, 2:35 pm

Great early update, try to make it this early every week now :)

change your adress to an NC or FL adress and buy things with a PSN card. Both those states don’t charge tax over the PSN

twilightgun said:

February 4th, 2:36 pm

I’ve been a subscriber to qore since it first cam out and I should still have it till the summer but no issues past january are showing up on my list. Like many others who have posted I can’t download the latest episode because it is not showing up. What’s going on?

DigglerUS said:

February 4th, 2:36 pm

same here, the latest qore episode isn’t showing up and also not the greyed out for the future.
i’m subscriber since march 2009.

Sonicfan11589 said:

February 4th, 2:36 pm

hey grace,
alot of us appreciate that you read our posts, but is it possible to tell us how this whole system works in from putting up games and other content on the ps store. that way, alot of us will have a better understanding of how this system works and some of us at least would be more understanding why we complain alot for the lack of games, especially the good ones. If u can explain or at least say it’s complicated or whatever, that’s fine. thank u for at least reading this post.

footballrule said:

February 4th, 2:36 pm

YES Battlefield 2 DEMO! :D

hkyluver said:

February 4th, 2:36 pm

I’m trading in my PSPgo. I’ll wait till PSP2 to ge another PSP. Other than that great PS3 update.

direkt57 said:

February 4th, 2:37 pm

February 4th, 2:38 pm

I have a Qore annual subscription that started in September. My remaining episodes are missing from my download list. What do i do? It was all there last month.

PBT2009 said:

February 4th, 2:40 pm

So I have to drop $24 just to play the god of war III demo?

robertmc8 said:

February 4th, 2:40 pm

Hi Grace Can’t you see if you get Ohio drop tax on PSN Store please? Pretty please. With pickles on top lol. I’m From Michigan there was no tax there but there tax in Ohio now where I live. I live NW Ohio So Far I love it :). Thanks For great up date I’m glad I got 15meg+ connection :). I’m not to sure if I want Madden NFL Arcade or not? :) Still got 14 bucks left lol.

assassin4321 said:

February 4th, 2:41 pm

This update was a little bit Way to good

Airwalkinman17 said:

February 4th, 2:42 pm

Pre-Ordered BF:BC2 yesterday and really lookin forward to today’s demo. I was in the beta and that game totally caught me by surprise. It has some of the best online multiplayer I’ve ever played.

assassin4321 said:

February 4th, 2:42 pm

To bad im banned 4 life becuz i made a mistake in life and yall are to mean to help me or work something out

UltimaChocochu said:

February 4th, 2:44 pm

Nevermind, gotta go in-game to use it. Pretty cheap though, and a rip off, I think you should be able to keep downloadable items, guess I’ve learned my lesson.
Unless that changes in White Knight Chronicles, I won’t be buying any more DLC unless it sticks, cause that is a joke.


February 4th, 2:44 pm

why did you getbanned

TheSobadef said:

February 4th, 2:44 pm

Why did you guys get rid of the future qore episodes from the download list? Now no one can get the new episode.

Also, I noticed that the store wasn’t very responsive and that I couldn’t even get images to appear for most of the descriptions.

GMH101 said:

February 4th, 2:45 pm

please add harvest moon. or rune factory.
more anime

robertmc8 said:

February 4th, 2:45 pm

At 67 check your Transaction Management List in your account setting it would be there mate. That where you get your Qore at.

TWIZOD815 said:

February 4th, 2:45 pm

Yay battlefield demo! Gonna check out avp as well. Here’s hoping it doesn’t suck!

randomhero said:

February 4th, 2:45 pm

Is there an easier way of downloading Qore if you are an annual subscriber? Right now you have to search through your download list to find it. It would be nice to be able to download it from the Storefront or maybe even the XMB. Thanks.

Link01 said:

February 4th, 2:45 pm

Ah, can’t wait for that Heavy Rain demo and God of War theme ;)

Glacier928 said:

February 4th, 2:46 pm

sweet! After Burner and a price drop for Half-Minute Hero! I don’t know why you PSPgo owners constantly complain about updates… granted I have the PSP 3000 but I really want the PSPgo as well. Pretty good PS3 update as well! Any idea when Castle Crashers is going to be released on the PSN?

WWESuperstar said:

February 4th, 2:47 pm

YAY! The Drought is Over! And the update is early! I’m so happy

Jikkle said:

February 4th, 2:48 pm

$5 to remake your character in WKC is a litte much don’t you think? :)

vcotson said:

February 4th, 2:49 pm

when are we going to get the spelunker game? =)

silver425 said:

February 4th, 2:51 pm

Yes!! BFBC2 demo is out! I really wanted to try this game couse i never got a chance to be in the beta =(…o

Demolitio said:

February 4th, 2:52 pm

Uh, I can’t see any of my episodes in my download list after the Jan. 2009 one. I’m supposed to be good til’ Sept. 2010 too.

Awesome, the one I really want to see too.

Spathis said:

February 4th, 2:52 pm

These PSStore updates are abit of a joke to be honest. You guys at Sony have a whole selection of first party PS1 developed and published games and yet you don’t put them up.

Seriously put Legend of Dragoon up. What excuse is there for not putting it up? It was developed by you guys Jesus Christ! It’s like you guys are afraid of making money.

Or how about petitioning other devs like Square Enix to put Final Fantasy 9 and Chrono Cross up?

Pull you’re head together Sony. The PSStore could be something greater but you guys are treating it like a joke.

MadxHatTeR said:

February 4th, 2:53 pm

Nice. I need to pick up half-a-minute hero, but i’m still playing Gurumin and Jeanne D’arc.

When are we going to get (if ever) that Demon’s Souls Dynamic Theme that’s on the Japanese store?

jipmg said:

February 4th, 2:54 pm

Great update guys, I love how you guys are responding tot he playstation communtiy, I truely appreciate it.

I hope you guys in the near future release some PS2 games on the PSN STORE.. I would buy alot.

Scaevola said:

February 4th, 2:54 pm

Where is the Return to Ostagar DLC?!

Destiny89 said:

February 4th, 2:54 pm

FOR all those not finding Qore 21 i just found it on Transaction Management List.. the download list will show up so go way back to Jan episode and you’ll see it there

megamixer said:

February 4th, 2:54 pm

Half-Minute Hero dropping $20 on PSN is 3 months too late. I bought the retail game for that price on Amazon back in November. :( Wish I could trade in my UMD version for a PSN copy. :( At only 101mb with short gameplay segments its a perfect downloadable title to keep on your PSP. I’d recommend to anybody that hasn’t already picked it up.

RoecraticA said:

February 4th, 2:55 pm

wow,for psp (digital download)users including MYSELF sometimes,I feel sorry for.
This week for psp:no add-ons,no ps1 classics,no minis,and no GAME trailers except pulse. I mean you could of at least included a small demo or something else. I do hope you try harder in these next coming weeks. last weeks update was much better,and I really am looking forward to Socom:Fireteam Bravo 3. But really,what ever happened to echochrono??? Anyway have a good weekend.

Hrist said:

February 4th, 2:56 pm

People never seem to get tired of complaining each week about the updates or the lack thereof…

I think the amount of updates Sony has delivered have been very good. We all have things we would like to see up on the Store, but I’m sure Sony is trying its hearty best! :p

Sony FTW!!

axeblade07 said:

February 4th, 2:57 pm

OK the store must have still been updating. I see the Feb episode of Qore now.

Carlos_Gabranth said:

February 4th, 2:57 pm

Excellent, I am looking forward to the WKC dynamic theme.
