The Pulse 4/15 episode confirms that the US PlayStation Store Update is moving to Tuesdays starting May 4th.
So the US store will be up earlier than the EU store now. They said the EU store updated are on Wednesdays now.
which is not very nice at all.
Watch Microsoft move the updates to Monday now
Microsoft doesn't need to move any dates as they are updated everyday with content, so no, I doubt this Sony move will cause them to move their XBLA release. Also, when Game Room returns that will be a Thursday release, so... PSN - Tuesday Update XBL - M - F updates
ok i pay 50 bucks a year to get my content b4 any1 else... including PSN ppl.... microsoft betta make their updates on monday MICROSOFT MONDAYS FTW!!!!
I dunno why you get a disagree NMC you are right. XBL doesn't wait for 1 day a week to update their content, it is happening everyday.. Proof: http://www.majornelson.com/ Glad to see Sony moving the day up but I wish they would do it like XBL does. It gives a reason to check out the XBL Marketplace everyday..With Sony I don't even bother unless it's Thursday. Tittie Sprinkles you need to own an Xbox first. If you did you would know that MS does content updates everyday.. Not just on Wed. and yes thats a benefit of a paid service.
It really depends on the content with PSN. they released RE5 demo on a friday i believe, the Liberty city episodes updated on tuesday, gow3 demo tuesday. Sony brings out certain content on off days the main psn store update is weekly.
While I applaud the earlier updates, I really hope they increase the quality of said updates. For the last month (personally), I've found the updates meagre. I've looked on the PSN in Japan and they have a slew of great JRPGs available including amasing classics like Vagrant Story, Brave Fencer Musashi, and others. Come on Sony, who wants the pathetic releases of the original PS games that so few people want that you've been "updating" the PS Store with? Release the games that we, the gamers, want. Also, mediocre avatar updates and such fail to inspire me. As a longtime PS gamer, I've been hoping for more.
Not really that much before EU updates as US updates about 1AM (in the morning) GMT. So technically its Friday over here right now when it updates. So it would update in EU on a Wednesday so same day really.. I like though how they getting in before MS though. I always disliked how MS got games before Sony even if it was for a day they always had that to hang over us. PS3 it only does EVERYTHING.
What's the big deal with this news? Y'all act like this means we'll be getting updates sooner and have to wait less time for things and whatnot. But after that initial week, we'll still be waiting a week in between updates. So it doesn't matter which day of the week it falls on, it's still once a week, with...still....7days between each update.
Interesting, that's before Microsoft's update.
But knowing how random the update times have been, it might not be loool
Soon, they will need to update every day to 1up eachother.
Wouldn't be hard for Sony since they already do that on the Japanese and Hong Kong stores.
It's funny how time works!!!!!
No it's not.
Well it makes sense. I never understood why Sony liked coming in last so much and letting M$ get updates first all the time.
now we update first, haha, love it
How do you figure that you get them before Xbox? Xbox has always had Tuesday updates and really early in the day.
Perfect time to do the update because the World of Warcraft nerds will be going through withdrawals and need something to hold them over until servers are back up. xD Good move, Sony.
I wonder if this is going to spawn another competition between Sony and Microsoft. Next we'll be hearing about Microsoft moving their updates to Monday. Then a month later, Sony moves theirs to Sunday. And so on, until they're both back on Wednesday and Thursday lol. Not really being serious of course, but I thought it was funny lol.
Muhahaha, Now we get them demos and arcade games first. Sorry Xbox people. :( Nah, just joking.
Quick reminder, jokes are supposed to amusing in some way.
frikin awesome =]
Oh for god sake Sony, stop fing treating Europe like this.
Treating Europe like what? Giving them collector's editions of games that America doesn't get or moving Europe's store update from Thursday to Wednesday?
giving them collectors editions of games the us doesn't get? you mean the god of war trilogy? that's because they sat on the frakking collection for five months. scee is a waste of space.
Is it ironic that a person with Demon's Souls as their screen name complains about Europe getting better treatment?
Microsoft has always updated with new demos and content on a Tuesday whereas Sony has updated on Thursdays, usually around 5 - 7 PM EST. Xbox usually gets their content around 12 - 3 PM EST, sometimes earlier. It makes sense to move it to Tuesday as that's when game releases are also.
MS releases things all the time.. They don't wait for 1 day. http://www.majornelson.com/ Oh look.. It's not a Tuesday and the Skate 3 demo is out!
The main update (as in, when stuff like the Rock Band tracks and stuff like that, as I think I know what it is you're talking about that doesn't have a set day of the week for updating) is Tuesday. This news will be beneficial for stuff like that. Personally, I do think that's why many do believe that XBL updates on Tues.: that's when the weekly Rock Band DLC becomes available on XBL. This is VERY good news for the PS3 RB players who hate waiting a few extra days to play the latest tracks. Oh, and XBL would have to move to Sunday instead of Monday as their main update day, because we seem to forget about Nintendo when talking about 360 vs. PS3 (even MS forgets about the Wii that is, by the way, on the top of the list on all the system sales data many times over), and the Wii Shop Channel updates on Mondays.
this is great, i've been wanting sony to update on tuesday. now when a new game comes out like final fight:double impact, it will appear on PSN 1st then xbla a day later. b4 when the 360 updated on wednesdays, they would get the new stuff first but not anymore. the wii store updates on mondays so in the future,360 may move to mondays too to try and keep a step ahead of sony. but hell sony is keep on 360's ass lol!
I doubt this has anything to do with Microsoft, and more to do with all movie & game media releases on disc at retail stores are typically on Tuesdays. If movies or games coming out are available both as disc or download on PSN, the PSN store will be two days behind the local retailer if they continue updating the PSN store on Thursday insteadof Tuesday.
The reason being all new Movies/Game releases are usually on the Tuesday of the week. So it would make sense for them to be out on the same day things come out. That being said, PSP games should be on the PSN store DAY ONE now and there is no excuse for it.
Dang it!! First the iTunes apps update on Tuesday now this?? I am one broke guy...one very entertained broke guy.
Nintendo updates on Monday and Sony on Tuesday I like
