https://store.sonyen.../download/queue

The auto-download stuff from the web PS Store seems to be live now:

A new feature has been added to the Sony Entertainment Network Webstore, the ability to queue up content to be downloaded the next time you turn a system on. You can access your queue from the following link. We last heard of this when firmware 4.40 was released.

As mentioned before the auto-downloading will only work when you turn the system on, it will not wake your PS3 up from a cold start. It did auto-download my queue when I manually turned the system on. But if you happen to have a Vita or PSP lying around you could Remote Play and turn your system on to start your downloads if you are away from home. And of course if you have PlayStation Plus, it will process this queue when it does its nightly sync.

For Vita, as long as you are connected to the internet it will process your queue. From testing on my device, it took about 10min for the game to get pushed out and downloaded.

There are some interesting things you can do from your download list now as well. You can add games to which ever queue you want. So if it is a Cross buy title, you can choose to have it add to both PS3 and Vita queues, or just one of them.

While this isn’t a perfect solution for push downloads, it does do the trick. You can learn more about Remote Downloading to your PlayStation devices here.

I'm sorry to inform you that your purchasing of a movie tie-in game on release and mention of it here, we've had to revoke your CAG privileges. However, don't feel too glum because you can redeem yourself by providing the community with 1 glitch game deal or 1 pre-release ad to Best Buy or Target. Thanks.


Cheapy D should revoke his card. He gets movie tie in games before they're released!

Nice, now I never have to use Ps3 version of the store ever again.
edit:
doh, you can't add it to your queue from the store page, you have to use the download list, lame.

Never played a Katamari game before, so I might check that out. Not sure what to think of Zombie Tycoon, but it sounds interesting, and it's free so I have to check it out;)

Really though I'm just interested in what's going to be on sale next week. Really hope it's an awesome all out sale to end out the month:bouncy:

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

I've been meaning to pick up RE 1-3, so this was definitely a good time to do it.

Also for the PS+ I absolutely recommend Vanquish, it's a very underrated game.

Not really the place to ask this, but anyone know if it's ok to play Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time before I play Sly 2 or Sly 3? Is there any sort of intertwining story?

It's a sequel to the previous games and the story is fairly important for the set-up of Thieves in Time, though they do a good job of recapping the story up to the start of the game so you don't need to play the previous games to know what's going on.

Everything you need to know is was summed up in the demo, but IMO I expect you'd get more out of it having played the other games (the stories have always been my favorite parts of the games). I haven't played anymore than that of TIT (nobody say anything) , but I don't think its required to have played previous games. Kinda like Uncharted, where you can love one, and playing the rest will only cause you to Lo e it more:)

Hmm, that'd be nice... but I just hope people can keep their expectations reasonable, given all the high hopes I've seen for an "ensemble sale" featuring most of the games whose characters appear in PSAS:BR. Not looking forward to a firestorm of furious people should the sale only cover the one game and its DLC.

"No sale on Bioshock Infinite? What the hell Sony! Big daddies are in Battle Royale!"
"But Sackboy was in Rag Doll Kung Fu and ModNation Racers before he was in Battle Royale, how come RDKF and MNR aren't on sale?"
"Why didn't we get a bundle with Sly Trilogy, Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, Jak & Daxter Trilogy, Devil May Cry Trilogy, Uncharted Trilogy, Dead Space Trilogy, Metal Gear Collection, Infamous Collection and God of War Saga? What a wasted opportunity, Sony! God."

Not so much expecting that sort of thing here... but I feel for Morgan Haro and I think I'll steer clear of the PSBlog's comment section for a while after the sale is announced.

Resident Evil Question Help:

1)Should I expect a RE6Gold or just buy all the DLC on sale?

2) I have RE5Gold on PS+, but I can't buy it on sale currently. Only option is redownload "free". I want to own permanently.

3)off topic, is it correct that we can't redownload movies? I notice my MK and Batman Yr1 aren't redownloadable.

Wouldn't surprise me, but it could be a while, and given the frigid reception RE6 seems to have gotten, we might not see one at all. I went ahead and bought the DLC on sale.

2) I have RE5Gold on PS+, but I can't buy it on sale currently. Only option is redownload "free". I want to own permanently.


Unfortunately this is an oversight Sony doesn't seem to have any interest in fixing. If you own it "free" via PS+, you can't purchase it until your subscription lapses. If it's a PS+ discount you're looking to take advantage of, you're out of luck.

Exceptions are rare: bundles seem to work (e.g. I bought the game + DLC bundles of Costume Quest and the first M:TG after getting the base games free on PS+, and they've stopped bumping forward in my DL list when I renew my subscription), and download codes obtained from retailers seem the same. Won't help much with the RE5Gold sale though.

3)off topic, is it correct that we can't redownload movies? I notice my MK and Batman Yr1 aren't redownloadable.


I believe you're correct -- sorry. Sony support says "Videos purchased on the video store cannot be re-downloaded once it has been downloaded to either a PS3 or PSP system."

Bioshock Infinite is currently $10 off at retailers on sale, next week TRU will have Injustice Comic Book fighters for $20 off and it just released. I get you're trying to be cute but wanting a sale on something is never silly since as you see new games drop all the time.


I think his point is that people will be expecting some gigantic sale that spans dozens of games (along with deep price cuts, of course) when the sale will most likely be a more limited selection. The large number of IP's associated with PSABR can allow peoples' imaginations to run wild when thinking of sales possibilities for any games related to it.

Got an email about the Resident Evil: Revelations demo coming out soon before the game launches:

Horror fans will soon be able to get a taste of Resident Evil Revelations with the upcoming release of a downloadable demo for Xbox LIVE, PSN, Nintendo eShop and Steam. Exact release dates to be confirmed shortly.

Acting on orders from the BSAA director, the demo will see players infiltrating the cruise ship ‘Queen Zenobia’ as Jill Valentine and attempt to rescue missing fellow BSAA members Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawat whose last known location pinpointed them onboard.

Wow, kind of cool to see the original Katamari come to PSN. Part of me wants to get it for nostalgia, but I remember playing a ton of it when I got my Vita with Touch My Katamari, then getting the PS3 and 360 games not long after. Plus it feels weird not having the jump button in the older games.

That's a pretty impressive price.

Quantum Conundrum included? Is this the first person puzzle game that has nothing to do with Tomb Raider or is this something different?

It's also a Square Enix game, but that's all that ties them together. This is at least a chance for PS+ people to outright purchase QC.

I'm glad they finally added this, but it definitely has room for improvement. I'm guessing if you buy something on there right now, you could add it to your download queue easy peasy. But if you want to add something you bought awhile ago, you actually have to go find it in the awful, awful download list. And that is incredibly buggy in its current state (I tried to navigate too quickly and got stuck on an infinite hour glass, had to close the tab). I'm no programmer, but it doesn't seem like it should be hard to add something to your download queue from the actual product page a la Xbox.

Thanks for posting, but crap- I was waiting on the disc version of TR to drop to sub-$20, but this sale is very tempting, especially with a $20 PSN gift card I just got for my birthday this week, effectively making this digital bundle $10 for me...

Someone talk me out of this! I can wait a bit longer to get this on disc, and it'll be near the $20 price point sometime soon... right? :-s
