Sony Computer Entertainment America on Thurs. announced new offerings available at the Playstation Store, including a Folklore Sneak Preview demo and new trailers...
Sony let me down with the Folklore demo.
I'm currently running my PS3 on an SDTV, and I can't play the new Folklore demo on it.
uh download it from your own country and you'll be fine.
You can't play the demo just because you don't have a HDTV?
Yes, I can't play it because I don't ahve an HDTV.
The message I recieved when I tried to start it up was something along the lines of:
The game could not be started because of your current video output settings.
Thats what it said for me on the Tekken DR and Crash bandicoot game.
dam that sucks guys, wonder why
Do what Deep said and download it from your OWN COUNTRY.
The video/out settings are from a PAL thing...
and it works just fine, download it somewhere so its the same region code you are in
i would like to help you, but i can't. My bad homie.... T_T
i just want to freakin leave work so i can dl this stuff!!
finally its out !
It's a good demo people - very long actually - about forty minutes gameplay. Prob even an hour actually.
to play folklore
The European store version of folklore will need an HDTV since there sizes are different then are sdtv's but If its on the US store it will work for SDTV's and HDTV's
if its the same demo that is out on the EURO store then it will be awesome!
haha I loved it, its a WHOLE different type of game! that is really cool
got everything downloading now. cant wait to see the mgs4 trailer even though on the description it calls all the bosses by wrong names, like screaming mantis, laughing octopus,etc.
Since when are those the wrong names?

VG charts are pretty accurate:
Remember 360 was outselling PS3 by over 100k a month according to the NPD. That's 25k a week. PS3 price Drop didn't happen till July 9 a week into July. Which means PS3 was probably already down 25k in July when the price drop went into affect. And at the end of the month 360 outsold PS3 by 11k.
Means PS3 outsold 360 in those 3 weeks after the price drop. Remember vg charts reporting PS3 outselling 360 for the weeks after the price drop by amounts like 6k, 11k, 5k?
Makes sense to me but... I don't know
that actually makes perfect sense.
Did it take a long time for everyone elses to download? Mine is taking forever.
I know this is outta topic but I have been considering buying either a Component A/V or an HDMI conection for my PS3. My HDTV is 30 inches and its 720p. The HDMI is $40 more so I want to know if it would be worth buying or would I get the same definition with the A/V component?
If price is a factor, you can go to Amazon.com and get an HDMI 'new' for less than $10.
As for image quality, there is barely a noticeable difference with my 32" 720p, HDMI is a little bit sharper. There's more of a difference with 1080p TVs, I hear.
P.S. You should use the forums to get better and faster advice ;)
if your tv supports hdmi yeah you really should upgrade to it, there's a big difference. You can also get pretty cheap hdmi cables at walmart.
has anyone noticed ps3 downloads multiple things at once now? how long has this been going on? i just noticed! hahaha.
btw, my download is taking forever!
I don't know what PS3 you're using, but mine still only downloads ONE thing at a time. The rest of the downloads are paused =\
haha yeah its been like 3 or 4 month.
I was just wondering because of the screen size, I also think the audio has a difference as well. I want to enjoy the games as best as possible as well as movies. Thanks for the advice
Most tv stores will try to get you to buy those 100$ monster hdmi cables that cost an arm and a leg. But truth be told, you can buy a cheap cable at wal-mart for pretty much the same price as components. The cheap cables are just as good really. Plus with a 720p, there is no way you'd see a difference (even at 1080p) between expensive and cheap cables.
Man...this is the longest I have waited for a download. I didn't even see how big the file is... must be pretty big.
So any HDMI would have the same quality... I was kind of worried that they were cheaper because they wouldn't perform as well.
Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna start looking for HDMI cables to pick up. I'm very curious how different it will look compared to the A/V cables that come with the PS3.
EZCheez - Cool, hey is there a specific HDMI cable you would recomend, like the one you purchased, what brand is it and where did you buy it, Thanks.
There's some technical stuff like purity of gold in the connections and stuff, but in reality, its a bunch of BS. Most salespeople will tell you there's a difference, but they work commission and would love for you to buy the over expensive cable. Keep in mind that your running a 720p 30" (i think), so even if there was a small difference, its unnoticeable. I have a 42" 1080p and I have cheap cables and they run just fine.
I got a $15 HDMI cable with my PS3 and it looks awesome.
I use a second $15 HDMI cable for my cable DVR. The difference is astounding when switching from a standard 480i to the HD channels.
PilotPistolPete is right. Don't listen to any BS about HDMI cables and NEVER, EVER buy Monster cables. Those are just downright ridiculous.
Hey, since we are on the topic of helping out (TruthBtold with hdmi and sheng long with downlaods)
I currently have media player and tversity as dnla devices on the ps3 and I noticed that I have no more space of my puny 20 gig hd. I have absolutely nothing other than a few demos and movie clips, so i should still have plenty of room. Does the dnla devices take up room on the ps3. I find that even if i close the programs, the room on the hd is still taken. Its quite annoying, since I had to delete alot of stuff so I can finally fit folklore. Does anyone else experience this?
I will take the plunge soon and buy a 160 giger or something, but for now its frustarting.
Two nice updates in a row, keep it comming Sony!
Ha ha ha - "The Folklore Sneak Preview demo is an exclusive U.S. offering that allows a first play of the upcoming action title."
Who are they trying to fool?? lol
I don't like Keats at all. The gameplay is not bad but it's nothing special either. Still not sure, the demo didn't focus at all on the storyline. And that's what will either reel me into the game or not.
