cool i have been waiting all day 4 this!!!!!!!
Something is up, SSHD is pushing version 3.0 on me right now, well...not on me literally, but...you guys know what I mean. :P
Anyhow, SSHD was supposed to have an update with Thursday's store update, but it's here now. Don't recall what the changes were going to be, but since I haven't put this game down since last year I can't wait to find out.
yeah, got it.... the images in the store arent loading yet but i imagine its due to high volume and probly has to dl them or whatever.... but it looks sharp!
A GREAT upgrade... for real
i put my alarm at 1:30 so i can be ready at 2am and it was up at midnight sometime <_<
The store also has the updated Lair controls for download. That store is a next gen interface. talk about slick looking. I have to look at my Wii store and my 360 Marketplace and think somebody needs to innovate because they were just left in the last century.
You guys do realize they are still uploading stuff onto at the as I type this ? From my understanding, it will be ready after 8PM tonight EST.
I JUST UPDATE BOTH OF MY PS3 ITS LOOKING GOOD SO FAR IT LOOKING WAY BETTER THEN XBL MUCH FASTER NOW THIS IS SWEET 1. SUPER STARDUST HD SOLO ADD-ON PACK 2. LAIR DRAGON AND CONTROL PACK ADD-ON SOME IMAGES
Ummmmm..... The store has no images for me. It says "Missing Image" ...for everything. Anyone else have this problem? (It does show the red bag showing I bought fl0w though)
same thing for me, no images, the new store does look cleaner though, i'm glad they got rid of the arrow
They are still bringing these things online, so some of the pictures jsut aren't in the system yet.
I am getting some images now and then but I think it is because there is so much activity right now with people downloading. (Oh, and Warhawk is $39.99 again)
here either. No doubt there are many who were waiting in anticipation and the load is heavy. This is actually a problem Xbox Live Marketplace suffers from regularly.. slow loading images.
The rest of the site is quite fast though. I don't think it looks better than XBLM, but it is faster (of course, right now there's no images) and I think I like its compactness better. Interested in seeing how smooth the purchase process is with the redesign.
All in all, looks good.
role on thursday
and man its taking forever must be alot of people trying to update right know Edit: the store looks nicer the font is kinda small but its readable, its feels more comfortable to be in but most of the images for dlc aren't showing up and instead shows like a "broken file" type image o.0.
i was sitting here hitting update over and over till it came available. As you could tell im pretty bored haha.
it looks really nice. AND REALLY FAST.
Who cares about making the store better???? GIVE US IN GAME XMB AND HOME ASAP BASTARDS
The store sucked, YES. But was it more important to get up and running than IngameXMB or at least news about it?! Why do I have In Video Xmb? and no game xmb where its important so i can easily talk to friends and invite them into my games while playing other games.... This detachment from reality seems so obtuse! I'm starting to think that i'm the only one that would have rather had ixmb over a FASTER STORE TO BUY NOTHING on! Lets face it for all of what Sony has to show for itself: Music/Tv/Film production house. The Store isn't plum PACKED with material. Maybe its just me and you that believe that IXMB is way more important than a faster store. Usually businesses get up to speed with all of their features first, THEN improve them. They already had a 'working' version of a store. They should have a 'working' version of xmb, sure it wont be great from the start. But something is better than nothing. They are sealing up the small tears in the sails while there is a GAPING IN THE HULL! Perhaps its JUST for the new owners to go ga-ga over, because it will all be NEW content to them... man :( Although. I am just having a bad day because my GT5 question was ignored :(
You need to get a life if you care so much about a feature. Sony already said it will be in FW 2.4 so it looks like the wait won't be too much longer. Can't wait? Buy a damn 360 if you're so impatient. Simple
You like Audioslave. No one cares about your opinion. RATM FTW
Home is heavily integrated into the ps Store? What if they need to get the new store up and running first? Make sure its stable. Make sure it doesnt brick a tonne of machines?
You idiots find it all well and good to be impatient and whinge about not having home yet... Notice how when sony release things, THEY WORK??? Its called-
If you want to whine like a 12 year old girl, Go and buy another console. It provides all the things you so desperately want. But dont come b*tching to us when the thing wont turn on.
It upsets the fangirls.
You've made her cried poor girl ROFLMFAO!!!
People were complaining about the store a LONG time before they were complaining about in-game XMB. To the tune of right from the start. Stop b****ing.
Man the store's way better now. You can navigate through it really quickly and smoothly as well.
Holy crap the new store really does look wicked.
Anyone find any extra fixes/tweaks/add-ons included in the firmware aside from the new store?
Yes, the updated Lair controls are available for download.
Also included in the upgrade is improved sound technology DTS-HD Master Audio is literally bit-for-bit identical to the studio master recording and makes movie soundtracks and sound effects truly come to life. The technology delivers audio at the incredibly high rate of 24.5 mega-bits per second (Mbps) on Blu-ray disc, which is significantly higher than standard DVDs. DTS-HD Master Audio also offers 7.1 audio channels at 96k sampling frequency/24 bit depths, so you’ll be totally immersed in the sound. The firmware update will add DTS-HD High Resolution Audio as well, which is a similar output technology that requires less disc space.
srry but this is very disappointing... i like the new store but... come on.
what's the problem... you don't have a ps3 to enjoy it??
lets see ... they said they will release the new store and the added codec features today, they did so.. what part of the fully kept promise disappointed you? or are you just whining cause it is a hip thing to do? thought so ...
What did you guys expect? Hidden features and surprises. It was stated for about 1-2 weeks now what it'll include in this firmware update. Please people don't expect Home or in-game xmb in 2.3 just because you heard rumors going around. You'll just disappoint yourself even more.
I love the new store, this guy is crazy unless he is just too in love with his pay per month XBL that he cant see other greatness.
They didn't kick me off the PSN. Store looks fantastic.
You don't get kicked off PSN if you're already logged on. Would you want to get kicked off PSN when you are owning with a 40-0 kill and counting streak? :) ha
jus cant goto store yet says " the connection to the server timed out" =[
Amazon shipped my Predator Bluray disc today. Can't wait to try out Dolby-HD Master Audio.
So why do none of the images for each item work?
just give them some time to load the first time, then i think theyre saved on ps3 hard disk not to sure. I read somewhere that since the update is still under effect, some images might not be uploaded until tomorrow...so when you fire up your ps3 tomorrow they should all be there. BTW...this store's performance really is that much better. Just needs that search engine everyone wants. Gotta love that "back" button. I think people underestimate the impact this store will have on the ps3's online experience. I for one am quite happy, although i couldn't agree more on the need for in game xmb and home. Add those two things in combination with the new store and the online portion of the ps3 should be pretty solid.
There not done with the Switching.. have to argue about everything! They give you something nice and you be a winer about it!
share your reasons dude
ppl want to know while we wait
what has disappointed you? is it lack of HOME or something big?
I think the store is a huge deal when you consider how much bigger its going to get in the upcoming months.
Very, Very nice. I am pleased with the new store. Looks great and runs a lot faster. It only took me about 8 mins to download the update.
Under the Theme Settings, were we always able to change the color of the background? I remember before we had to stick with what month it was and the screen turning black when it's night time. Now I'm able to pick the color regardless of what month and time of day it is...I'm probably late on this though since i've been using a wallpaper
ya i think you could always do that.
That Feature was already There along while ago!
I Love My new Store! Big Hugs To SONY!
MGSO Beta Tester I am!
for the dts hd function thing...is it under settings or something, how would i change it..does it do it automatically or something
Not sure I mostly think its Automatic!
Yes, no need for you to do anything. Just select DTS-MA within the BlueRay disc while viewing.
Updating, hopefully this one is faster cuz the 2.20 one took an entire Law and Order episode to download and install XD
Well... another update that slightly brings up our hope of getting closer to what we really want -_- I just don't understand how it takes a huge company like Sony to implement a feature like in-game xmb about 2 years to get down... I think they just love pissing consumers off :(
lol yeah...they're kinda beating around the bush and eating around the pie without giving up the big slice. Hopefully by 2.40 we'll be more satisfied than we are now. They're also making me mad about not answering the in-game trailer question, it's like...we know it's in-game but we want the devs themselves to say it's in-game as well so we can freakin celebrate...about 90% of the questions were that and they're tiptoeing around it for some reason
In Good Time My Friend.
Anyone remember that, special surprise to every 50th person who updates? Anyone get anything yet?
I remebered this and hunted the store high and low when updated this morning - found nothing :-(
wow! this is cool, very sexy :)
I so Agree that it looks so Sexy and Sharp!
Wait I think I hear a guy in the background Moan!
Wait a min I think I heard 2!
now if only i had that hot japanese girl from the video demonstration as part of the update =D
Experiencing image issues like everyone else though :P That being said, Sony scheduled it would be down for another hour and a bit from now, and images ARE starting to pop up, guess they're still updating? P.S. WHERE'S THE SURPRISE?! :0 P.P.S Also noticed sometimes the main page images don't show up, the big ones for GT5:P and stuff P.P.P.S I know it's nit-picking, but it should scroll down when I hold right rather than making me do so :<
What surprise? Sony did not mention any surprise man. Konami did, involving MGS4.
well i think they have a hard time understanding online gaming
@WulF...there was ALOT done in preparing for the new store. (search the web and check the blogs). Hope it helps your frustration
The store is great
im having some trouble on the images its like currupted or something but i like the new design,
All icons look corrupted but it is way faster.
Great, but my net is too slow right now:(
