Very nice indeed. :D

Demos, themes, trailers- this is at the very least a decent update, though I’m sticking with “very nice.”

By the way, thank you so much for that PS3 trailer/music video (What You Need). I realize it’s basically advertising to the people who already have PS3s but I love ‘um. :D

Thank you very much.

Thanks for the update. When is Dark Mist coming to the US store?

By the way: I’m actually looking forward to that Naruto title, call me crazy if you will, so if Namco Bandai/Cyber2Connect has anything to share, be sure to pass it our/my way. It really is quite impressive how close to the look of the show they’ve gotten.

Laters.

Question – When is Legend of Dragoon coming to download as a PS1 classic? Been waiting awhile for it, and Im sure many others too.

Nice update with the demos and such. Still too bad you havent caught on with the good old PS1 downloades though. Is it really that hard to give NA some PS1 games, when Japan seems to get tons of them?

A little bit of my soul dies whenever I see a store update without a new PS1 game. :(

Well, I guess the Secret Agent Clank demo makes up for it a little bit, but still, sony. Give me my damn CTR, RE1 2&3, and Spyro 2. Thank you.

I’ll make sure to download the “Overlord: Raising Hell” demo, as that game looks pretty neat.

Reminds me of a cross of Fable and Pikmin, both of which I enjoyed.

I’m pretty stoked about Pineapple Express, but I didn’t expect the red band trailer to ever appear on the Playstation Store!

Anyways, every week it getting better and better! It’s good to see more demos and add-on content coming out more consistently.

Now, about the TV networks on the “What You Need” video……what’s up with that?

+ Gunwing on May 15th, 2008 at 3:02 pm said:

IMHO this is the way it should be at least one or two demos, maybe a PSone game if they are ready to release it, and of course a PSP demo to keep PSP owners like myself happy!

GJ Sony! Now get to work on HOME, and for the love of god give the Final Fantasy VII fans their PSone game to shut em up!

    With all of your active and constructive comments and contributions to this blog, you must have somehow missed my previous replies to this question that seems to be asked every week.

    Some of the most common reasons for content appearing in one region and not another are:
    – language differences / translation needed,
    – different rating boards in different regions (ESRB in the US, PEGI in Europe) take different time to review the content,
    – licensing limitations allow the content to appear only in certain regions,
    – not all content appeals to audiences cross-culture.
    – the region that created the content will usually have it first due to the natural process of creation.

    Sometimes it’s a combination of those and other reasons, but hope these help you understand why different regions have different content!
    Glad to have answered your question!

+ Gunwing on May 15th, 2008 at 3:05 pm said:

Sorry for the Duble post but the fact that we have the DBZ demo, and the Naruto Trailer means many PS2 owners are going to change hands over to the PS3, and PSP soon. IE when these games hit they will drive PS3 sales through the roof!

Like wise on the PSP we have some DBZ games, and a new Naruto game that hits in June this year as well. So both systems should be looking vary cool for PS2 hold outs right now.

Oh yeah, no Dark Mist for US either… Rocketman is TERRIBLE SCEA… complete garbage. Metacritic doesn’t lie.

Glad to see another person that loves to listen to the Full Moon podcast! Good guys over there!

Any word on whether the SCEA reigon will get video up from the press event in San Fran or even from the London one?

Also,can the store get the videos that Eric does of the firmware updates? I’m sure it would be a nice little piece to have.

PLEASE!!! add DarkMist next week along with all the add on, dont understand why its taking so long. Please also add a import section for PSOne games, most of the shooter, action and fighting games are playable without English. Also bring some Europe/ JP PSP games over to the US, such as Tales of Destiny 2, and Breath of Fire 3 (already released in Europe in English), and Suikoden 1 & 2 remake that were released in JP only.

Let’s take a look at this week in downloadable games.

XBLA: Assault Heroes 2 is released.

WiiWare: Launches in North America with great games like Final Fantasy Chronicles and Lost Winds.

Japan PSN: Some new PSOne games like Psychonauts.

Euro PSN: C&C Red Alert and Dark Mist.

NA PSN: …

It’s astonishing to me that there hasn’t been one word from SCEA about Dark Mist, a game that has gotten good writeups from almost everyone that has played it and is translated into English. I guess a polished anime action RPG/shooter isn’t up to the standards of quality releases like skydiving sims with broken motion controls and $3 screensavers.

Anything less than one downloadable game per week, with at least a PSOne game going up if there isn’t a new original game, is inexcusable.

Maybe it would be better to ask on Metal Gear Mondays or something, but when in the world were you guys planning (if at all) to release the PS1 classic Metal Gear Solid. I would have thought it’d make perfect sense to right around TODAY for MGS4 hype or something, but apparently not :(

A lot of people I’ve talked to want this.

Make it happen.
