The rockband songs this week leave something to be desired, but I suppose I can’t complain since I finally was given some metal last week.

Looking forward to The Last Guy demo.

This update is a great one, thanx Sony !!!

HOWEVER, there is not a single classic PS1 RPG so I’ll keep asking for them til I’m pleased, please try to get us:

Chrono Cross
Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX
Breath of Fire IV
Xenogears

And just because I know that right now there are people thinking “will these guys ever stop complainning about PS1 games?” I have the answer for you: NO!

Sweet update but Haze “DLC”…..really? Is anyone playing that game? I have it and I hate myself for buying it before the reviews came out. I was on my way home from Florida and picked it up the week it came out with Singstar for PS3. Biggest mistake I ever made, Haze is a sorry game it had good promise but missed on everything but online splitscreen.


69

+ Sephiroth on August 21st, 2008 at 2:57 pm said:

Nice update, however is there any chance of getting Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops placed on the PS Store? I can’t find this game anywhere (outside of ebay) and I really want to play it.


81

+ lazytoast on August 21st, 2008 at 3:22 pm said:

Hi Noel,

I saw that video icon issue with the inFamous theme but not the R&C theme. I guess they use a different compiler, especially since the R&C theme has custom sounds.

Any chance for an official theme creator for us that can add custom sounds?


82

+ twooh on August 21st, 2008 at 3:31 pm said:

Jeff or anybody else from Sony,

For those of you wondering why we didn’t get an Eyepet trailer, it’s because it’s only been announced for PAL regions. Hopefully it will make it’s way over here as well.

+ Ramage on August 21st, 2008 at 4:43 pm said:

OMG!
Thank you!

First of, grazi for R&C even though cost to playtime ratio is a bit high.
Second, THANK YOU for Jeanne d’Arc. I have been actively looking for this game. I passed it up at first because I was a little opposed to the price but after recent searches I haven’t been able to locate a copy(Gamestop no longer even lists it on their site) at a decent price. Now you’re saving me gas and roughly 7 bucks!

Other than that thanks for all the demos/vidoes. Lately I’ve been more and more impressed with the PS store updates and I hope you keep it up.

Now just start churnin out those PSOne classics everybody is yearning for!

Kthxbai!
