Quite an update if I do say so myself :)
- 12:38pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
lack luster for me, any new movies?
- 12:42pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
this has the youtube uploader thing right? and does it work for every game, sorry if i am wrong.
- 12:45pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
Great from both updates, keep up the work Sony.
- 12:45pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
Wow pixeljunk eden is great :-D, i can't wait till next week!
i didnt see any youtube stuff in there
- 12:50pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
The youtube intergration was already added in a past firmware update, but no US or EU game supports it at the moment. PixelJunk Eden will be the first.

why is it that every freakin weak theres a new guitar hero/rockband song to d/l? NOT EVERYONE PLAYS THIS GAME, why dont they update the blu ray movie section or the demo section like they do with this rockband crap.
- 1:44pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
do u have a hate problem with guitar hero or rock band, if you do please take it somewhere else.

I just played a little of 1942, its pretty good for what it is, I'd say its worth the $9.99. I'm installing Siren now, can't wait to get started on that! (I'm loving these PSN games, I can't get enough!)
- 2:11pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
@7 yeah that is tru but i dont share your hate toward the game. if i was able to play the game i would be playing both. the reason they have it because its easier to convert music onto a game then having a demo of a new game thats on its way out. another one is people would get board of playing the same songs really fast. i'm a rap type of person but to yall rockers rock on!! !m!

uhm because Activision and harmonix like to make sure their game is fresh with new content each week. Its not PSN of XBL saying "We need thes ein a weekly update", its the companies themselves providing these updates. Just keep your pants on, you dont play it? You dont have to care, its just more stuff per week which beefs out the updates.
Now my quesiton here is, does 1942 support Trophies? I dont think it does but id liek some confirmation on if im wrong

I didn't like PJE which I thought I wouldn't have :( Oh well maybe the next one.
- 2:56pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
DAMN i just bought pain last saturday ugh lol oh well great update

@ Agent 94
Yeaahhh, amen to that Agent 94! I think its freaking awesome that theres always weekly content for RB and sorta for Gh3. Absolutly Millions of ppl love GH and RB even better with DLC So i suggest "AhhYuken" should STFU or GTFO of PSU for being such a hater on music games. And take his hating back to 360 where it belongs.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed Parrapa the Rappa, but honestly, $23 for a ps1 title...Not that I don't have the cash but really, I think I'll wait for some homebrew if that's the price they want me to pay.
- 3:26pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
thats the best guitar hero pack made so far
- 3:28pm EDT - July 24th, 2008
The info on Parappa the Rapper is a bit wrong, its not technically a PS1 classic, its a port-over for the PSP that has added features (its not playable on the PS3). But, that price is still pretty ridiculous.

Eden is fun...and challenging too. I'm on the 3rd level and am wondering how far they plan to let you go. In the tutorial section it talks about YouTube support, but I haven't messed with it, so I don't know if they included it in the demo. Yeah, I wish we could buy the PSN cards already. Credit cards are the devil!

Wow Siren here I come. But damn them for lowering price on HVB, just bought that darn game 2.5 weeks ago, only if they had said there was soon going to be a sale.

Usually in a pixel junk demo when you get the full game you pick up where you left off in the demo... so have you guys been getting trophies? or will you have to play how ever many levels you get over again?
