Ugh, is that all the NA store gets? Is the content up now? When does it usually go up? Damn Qore taking all our good content!

Thought I'd get that out of the way first!

I'd like to say that anyone who comes in here asking when the content goes up and "IS THAT ALL WE GET WTF" before the content goes up and doesn't read the OP is an asshole. Great thread as usual tanod.

I would include a note in the OP stating that US and Canada do NOT get a SingStore update today, as many of us were expecting it before yesterday.

The SingStore updates have sucked since the beginning of the service here in North America, so it really isn't news for us SingStars. :/

I actually want to know more about DC Online. It turns out that the beta invites for Qore are just hot steam, so I'm glad other aspects are at least good for the most part.

It sucks that Capcom hasn't jumped on the trophy bandwagon yet...not that it will interfere in my decision to purchase Bionic Commando: REarmed.

Trophies might be coming later, but the achievements don't look overly interesting anyway. Not bad achievements by any means, but not interesting enough to make me choose the XBLA version.

Brian on the PSBlog said so... I hope not. This is just shooting themselves in the foot again.
This has been mentioned several times but it seems it bears repeating. The R2 beta is NOT only available through Qore. There'll be other ways of getting the beta just like the SOCOM: Confrontation beta.

I need more hiphop on sing store. More R&B too. My friend got it and there is like only 4 songs that appeals to the group. We bought a stinking Toni Braxton love song, for the ladies of course.

Just a note for the OP,

It says that the Fatal Inertia EX demo is only on the Japanese Store, but it is in the NA store and I believe EU store as well

The DLC for Vampire Rain seems to be additional enemies.

How often do these come out anyway?
Every 2 or so years. For some reason they posted a load of trailers for already released titles this week and Boku no Natsuyasumi 3 was one of them (maybe because it's the summer in Japan and it's available as a budget title now).

From the ps.blog about Resistance 2 beta.

Hey everyone,

This is Bryan Intihar, community manager for Insomniac Games. Just to clarify a few points about the Resistance 2 public beta.

*You must purchase a subscription to Qore–not just episode 3–to gain premier access to the Resistance 2 public beta.
*As we’ve stated in the past, there will be MULTIPLE ways of getting into the Resistance 2 public beta. The subscription to Qore is just ONE way. Stay tuned over the next few weeks for more details.

Hope this helps.
;o

They released a demo of the turd that is Vampire Rain? Wow way to kill any potential sales.
Demo is awesome so far!

OK, I haven't pressed start on the title screen yet. But they left the logo guideline text on the Ageia PhysX logo as it boots, that made my day...

Edit: OK yeah, this game sucks :lol :lol :lol

Nope, it's not. The trophy patch was with the Abusement part patch, so it's not coming till the DLC is here (and it's not today).

The trophy patch will be free by the way.

Yeah also PAIN Labs will be coming out for free with all this other content (and possibly a new replay editor, PAIN Movie Lot). Also new game modes (Call the Shots), online multiplayer, etc. all coming out at the same time. They will STEP UP THE HYPE BIG TIME for this. So i really don't think it's coming this week.

so they're releasing talkman in the US as a download title only? What does it mean per city? Isn't this that language app?
