The store normally updates on Friday I beleive.

I wouldn't hold your breath for psone games TBH. I'm betting you'll still need a US account to get those.

Thinking about it I suspect that this update has more to do with the hack done earlier in the week than anything scheduled.. they'll have closed that loophole, and everything else is just what was ready for release at the time they finalised it.

Downloaded the 1.70 update and all seems fine

Personally I just wish Sony would sort out the damn store so you dont have to add £5 every time. I was 47p short for the purchase of Lemmings this morning and had to add another fiver :mad:

Tactical pricing, they won't be changing that in a hurry whilst it's making them money.

Can't see the big need to play PS1 games on my PS3. Would be much better getting better PS2 compatibility i think.

Anybody know exactly which PS1 games (if any) we can look forward to downloading then?

cracker - Perhaps if you credited your wallet with say £20-£30 it would make purchases easier - that way you can just click "buy" until your wallet is empty and needs topping up? :smashin:

There are a few I'd like to see again that I foolishly sold on... Kula World, Kurushi etc. :smashin:

Its not the fact that i have to keep adding funds that is the problem. My issue is that they now have £4.50 of my money (that they wont refund) until i decide to buy something else

If everyone who owns a PS3 has a few quid in their wallet (i.e in sony's bank) then imagine how much interest Sony is making on that :thumbsdow

Just don't have any money in your wallet...when you go through to checkout it asks you to add more funds and you can pay the exact amount I believe. Not tried it myself yet, but my mate did it the other night when he bought Tekken DR for a night of beer, pizza and beat em ups! :thumbsup:

Tried that with my very first purchase and it would still only allow multiples of £5 :(

Main thing I would like in the update:

Support for 2:3 pulldown to get 1080p 24fps blue ray discs not look hopelessly shuddery! (My sharp 46inch LCD is 60Hz)

I can't believe this does not bother more people!

True enough - same with the 360 and Microsoft "points". Maybe that's why it doesn't bother me as I've got used to doing things that way...

Breadmaker - I'm sure it forced me to use the wallet feature the first time I bought something and it definitely said the minimum credit was a fiver...

The main thing I want to see is an auto shut-off for the wireless pad! I'm sick to death of sitting down to play a game and finding the battery is flat because I forgot to turn the pad off the night before. I must have charged it up about 10 times since launch day now. :mad:
