As stated in the other thread:

PixelJunk Monsters is on the Japanese Store, along with a cool new theme to download.
The cat thing, don't know the name, has two new themes.

I'm checking the rest.

Edit1: PJM is 900 Yen, and there's some MotorStorm stuff on too. Volume 4 of a pack for 200 Yen. I'm not good at Japanese yet. XD

I also see the dates now for the Cat themes... These are last weeks, my bad.

That's it so far..

I really do not understand why we even bother with a PSN update thread.

Thanks OP
There's, on average, about 19,198 reasons to post what I do every week.

The reason why I even started doing this in the first place is because I was frustrated that nobody knew when anything was going up and nobody ever talked about what did so I never got good impressions on the demos and other things that went up without scouring GAF.

Code:
PSN Content 11/29/07 - 18,221 views
PSN Content 11/20/07 - 13,199 views
PSN Content 11/15/07 - 25,501 views 
PSN Content 11/08/07 - 21,190 views
PSN Content 11/01/07 - 17,878 views
For the record, the highest number of views the thread ever got was 33,000+ when Everyday Shooter came out.

Ignore the haters, the weekly PSN thread is the best thing on GAF.

Pretty slow week, as always, I'm hoping a game will show up, say bowling or Elephunk or, well anything really.

Will pick up the Folksoul pack even though I'm only on chapter 1 of each character so far. Got a little sidetracked with all the other holiday-ish releases.

I'm out of the loop on these threads, what is supposed to be hidden in all the banners?

Edit. Looked at the older threads and figured it out.

I just think it would be more useful if there was something to talk about, Like maybe something significant.....but thats just my opinion. Honestly if it wasnt for this thread I wouldnt know what the hell they were doing week to week. But inspite of your best efforts their really isn't much to talk about. Its the end of the year, the biggest shopping season and the content from week to week is horrible. For me, this thread is a constant reminder of wasted potential.

And I should not kill the messenger, but I just felt like it really needed to be said.

It's all about taste. Every week isn't going to have something for everybody and we don't even know every thing that's going up yet.

Also, believe it or not, if there was a LIVE Marketplace thread, it wouldn't be all that different looking.

Your are def right. And this is why there is no Live MarketPlace thread. We have two threads (Arcade and demo), and they are only bumped when something significant is released. Im not tryin to shit up your thread, you obviously put a lot of time and effort into it, and we all appreciate it. I just have a personal beef with the way sony has gone about PSN and I was hoping to get a good discussion out of the zealots.

In the left circle, instead of the regular Folk's head, you can see the wrestler's face. Very tiny. :)

Nice.

I don't get what you're on about. Sony release stuff every Thursday, so Tanod collects all that together so that everyone can discuss that day's releases.

If you have a problem with Sony doing that, there's a blog to complain on, littering this thread won't help you.
