    I love that it's firmware based. Hopefully they start offering some substantial updates once this launches. Namely Home and some PS1 games not named Jet Motto.

    about time... the psn store is so clumsy and awkward compared to the xbl marketplace.

    also it migth just be me, but some games (pain for example) never show up, i only saw it when they released some add-ons for it.

    Yea, I am glad they are doing this long overdue. I had higher hopes for HOME they just updated to .86 this week and it is really buggy a lot of screen tearing in this build. I am hoping for a fix here soon it the new updates didn't take. The bowling is fun but no one is ever on to play I never play chess or pool. The new HOME apartment they have now called Summer House is cool but not much to do.

    Looking forward to the update. I'm not a huge fan of the current version.

    Looks nice, I like that it has previews of games right there. I bet it crashes on the first day when everyone jumps on a once though. :lol

    new store was up last night. way better, except the thumbnails seemed to have difficulty loading, which could be a problem.

    you can even download psp demos through it now, which is b'dass.

    I love it. I was on it much later last night and the thumbs were loading much quicker than earlier. So I assume the volume of people downloading the update and hitting the store was causing some troubles. Of course, they could fix that by caching the thumbnails.

    Overall, a huge improvement and much easier to navigate and find stuff you're looking for. Now just put some new stuff on there please.

    yes caching the thumbnails would be nice, espcially as the genre icons are repeated. but yeah, i was very impressed with it.

    The PSP demos were available before, it's just easier to find them now. Yeah the interface is much better, but they still need to fix their download time. I downloaded the patch to Lair and it took forever. I know that everyone was getting the update, but still.

    A Gig+ demo on my 360 downloads in the time it takes me to go to the restroom.

    What type of connection do you have that it goes so fast? My 360 DL's are no faster than my PS3 DL's. :(  Of course my 360 is still not cooperating with me at the moment.

    Regular crappy Time Warner Cable (I am going wireless to my PS3 though). Lair took me like 20 minutes to download, but when I download huge demos on my 360, it flies.

    I play 3 games this week and all three had updates.
    Nascar 08
    Orange Box
    and Unreal Tournament
    Not sure how long the updates have been out or what they fixed. Plus a Burnout update coming next week. WOW everything is getting a update.

    Oh guys, I almost forgot... I got the new EGM yesterday (not the Apiril Fool's issue) and they said that there is a rumored update to Ratchet and Clank, and actualy mini sequel straight to download from the PSN that follows the event of the main game. So if you guys have the game, you might not want to get rid of it yet. EGM rumors are usually more reliable than most.

    edit: if they did this for Uncharted, I would drool.
