European PSN updates for August 31st

What's that? An update on a Friday? But we thought that updates only happen on Thursdays. Isn't that the reason we didn't get Warhawk on the 28th? Oh well, it's out now and theres no point moaning about the late release. Let's see what's up on the EU PSN today.
  • DiRT demo (free)
  • Jed Ashforth interview video (free)
  • All the Kings Men Blu-ray trailer (free)
As far as updates go, this one really takes the biscuit. We're grateful for every demo that we receive, but when America gets their best update yet and they get Warhawk two days before us ... Well, today's update feels insulting. Where, for starters, is the next Heavenly Sword anime and making-of feature? We're so unimpressed. Sort it out, SCEE.

1. It was a let down, I don't see why we couldn't get at the HS footage. I really don't see the reason why these PSN updates are not worldwide.

Still my house mate says she's loving DiRT and I'm loving Warhawk. Feel free to add me to your friends list for some Warhawk action everyone. DownwardMonkey.

2. Why do people still complain. Except that SCEE has their heads up their arses and create a US and Japanese account to get all the goodies.

7. To be fair, the DIRT demo is fantastic. I was blown away by it and am actually considering buying it now.

8. Wow. What can i say. Thankyou PS3Fanboy for continually sticking up for us PS3 owners and trying to get SCEE to listen, but sadly, they're ignoring our plea. I've owned my PS3 since launch, and i can honestly say, i'm beginning to regret it. I'm 17 on an apprentiship and i saved up for one whole month to buy a PS3. One month with no food (literally). I was drinking tap water to survive. I am looking forward to Warhawk coming out in the UK, then games like MGS4, GTA IV, FFXIII, LittleBigPlanet, Gran Tourismo 5 etc. But i am continually shocked by the PSN and how poor it is here in the UK. I've had a look on the American PSN and they have got alot more than us, but still not alot more interesting stuff. It's about time we all got treated the same as Japan. If it wasn't for the upcoming games on the PS3, i'd sell it right now. It's a discrace how we're being treated with the PSN. When it looked like we were getting good PS1 games, there were errors on most of them and they were taken down. Still, the PSN is free. Least they dont steal your money like Microsoft do.

9. And don't even get me started on the German Store. Looks like 1995 there. Glad I have a credit card that works in the US.

10. am I the only one that downloads everything from all 3 stores when content is released?

Posted at 8:02PM on Aug 31st 2007 by Michael

11. Err, how do I download stuff from the other stores? i.e. how do I et a US account?
