Sno-Cross Championship Racing…LAME

When are you guys going to release some PS1 Classics that people care about?

North America and Europe PSN = FAIL

Yawn……….still better then nothing though. At least the network is working again.

Where’s the Valkyria Chronicles demo?

Europe got the Valkyria Chronicles demo for free last week. How long will we have to wait? The Motorstorm demo was held back for over a month on Qore! THIS SUCKS – trying to make us pay for Qore just to get demos! Demos should be free.

Where is Age Of Booty, I was really waiting to purchase that game this week. Xbox gets it first and ps3 doesn’t get it at all!


58

+ tangy_orange on October 16th, 2008 at 5:12 pm said:

I thought there would be more games released this week? Where is Age of Booty? Does this mean everything that goes through PSN gets delayed?

I have a feeling things may be delayed to help promote their flagship title: SOCOM, which isn’t exactly working out that well right now.

I have 111 MB on my PSP and the lego batman demo takes 59 MB but it still says it won’t download cause there is not enough space on my memory stick. help!

and about that, i would like to see how much space is on my mem. stick while shopping

Oh. My. God. Sno-Cross Championship Racing!! Thank you!! This is so much better than any of those other crappy PS1 Classics Japan gets like Metal Gear or Xenogears.

/sarc

Hahaha, hahaha.

Yeah, those Japanese are so unlucky with Metal Gear and Xenogears!

Awesome update, but please start giving us PS1 classics that we are actually asking for :P

I’ve got my resistance 2 beta to download(usual slow PSN).

Grace Chen:

What happened to the Red Baron Arcade game and Age of Booty?

Not a great update this week, but the past ones have been good. I just wonder what happens to all of these announced titles?


65

+ SonicTHP on October 16th, 2008 at 5:19 pm said:

I do think we need to discuss the choices for “PS1 Classics”.

Seriously, there are a ton of great games that could be put on PSN, and the Japanese PSN has a good number of them, but we really just aren’t seeing that over here, and that’s pretty ridiculous.


66

+ tangy_orange on October 16th, 2008 at 5:19 pm said:

^

They just seem to get delayed.


67

+ Protopet on October 16th, 2008 at 5:19 pm said:

Sony can we please get Crash Team Racing as a PS1 classic.

Can you guys also fix the problems I noticed while writing messages to friends with the latest update(2.5). It flashes oddly while you’re typing, it doesn’t remember words that you put after each other like before to recreate sentences easily, and a few times, it randomly plugged in words from the dictionary that I didn’t want to use(I would put in one letter and then an entire word would just randomly pop in).

Another problem I noticed with the new update is that the accuracy of the “time when last logged in” is incorrect after a user just logs off. Instead of saying 1 minute or something very short, it says 64 minutes since last log in right after they get off.

whoever is picking these ps1 titles should be fired on the spot.

I was looking forward to Age of Booty and Soldner-X this week :(

At least I have Dead Space to hold me over.

Here’s your answer on Age of Booty:

http://www.capcom-unity.com/d.a.r.y.l./blog/2008/10/16/age_of_booty_psn__bad_news_and_good_news

They’ve pushed it to November, and tried to appease us with Trophies.

No Soldner-X either. Great update Sony.


71

+ iamacn on October 16th, 2008 at 5:23 pm said:

Almost 2 years and still we don’t have: Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 1-3, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Tomba 1-2, etc…

The person who sorts out license agreements should be fired for sucking at their job.

I’m disappointed.No new demos I have not played already.I can see videos on youtube,so not interseted in those.Hoping for better next week.You really had my hopes up Sony after the shutdown of the PS Store.

what about the resistance 2 beta for qore subscribers???

god, i hope socom isn’t as messed up as it was in the beta, that was the most annoying thing that i have ever had to endure.

oh ya! wasn’t the resistance 2 beta supposed to have started by now, it did say “early october”


77

+ FritoZ on October 16th, 2008 at 5:30 pm said:

Motorstorm demo would be nice, but i’m scared to update!

the new firmware update v2.5 seems to be creating alot of problems for people on the official playstation forums-

Any official word as to whether a firmware fix is coming to fix it? (like fw v2.51)

I would rather wait and be safe for the fix to be out there, but i can’t log into PSN until i update..soooooo if there was a new update to fix the problems with 2.5 (like they did with 2.4) i would really appreciate a heads up so i’ll know to wait or not..

(alot of great games coming up for release soon, don’t wanna have my PS3 sent in for another month! :( )


78

+ FritoZ on October 16th, 2008 at 5:31 pm said:

oh yeah, and a PSONE classic!

cool!

thanks!

but i’ll bet some people will say “that’s not the one i wanted”

i appreciate it, anyway!

Where is Age of Booty?


81

+ Mososokruppe on October 16th, 2008 at 5:35 pm said:

Sweet a theme for Valkyria Chronicles! Oh wait…I’ve never even played this game because for some reason the demo isn’t out…

I agree with pretty much everyone else out there about the ps1 game selection. It seems to me like Sony is sitting on a gold mine that they just aren’t exploiting. How hard can it be to get a team of people to start porting these games? You’d think by now every single greatest hit and top seller would be out. Why not start making money off of old games?

Wonderful Update!!

+ shadow7126 on October 16th, 2008 at 5:38 pm said:

@ 78

i bet that game will be on the next PSN update.


84

+ NipGrip on October 16th, 2008 at 5:39 pm said:

Also, is the bowling game patch up? What is going on, can we get things sorted out and some GOOD news updates coming as far as status on things? The SOCOM issues despite it’s release, the network issues, no updates as far as lost games, losing MAJOR ground to the 360 already.. What is going on, Sony? Where is your passion and love for your followers? No Resistance 2 beta info for Qore owners besides we’ll get them “soon”. Blah. I’ll say it, Qore is a ripoff. Besides getting the Motorstorm demo early and the VK demo (which you can get for FREE on the UK store right now), it’s just a jip.

Please, Sony.. Get your stuff together.

+ X1rtam on October 16th, 2008 at 5:40 pm said:

@76(FritoZ) – Those could just be xbots trying to mess with people. Sony does so much testing with these firmware updates it’s not even funny. I have 2.5, working fine. 2.4 was perfect for me as well.

Hey what’s up with this? Mortal Kombat II just disappeared completely from both the PSN Store and my Download List (I purchased it a few months ago). I read this on the forum and decided to check it out myself. What gives here? Why was it removed from my download list? How will I recover it if my system decides to bite the dust? I would like a response here please.

I AM FEELING LIKE THIS IS STARTING TO BE A TOTAL RIP OFF FOR US WHO WERE EARLY SUBSCRIBERS, YES SUBSCRIBERS. WE WERE LURED IN WITH PROMISES OF EXCLUSIVE DEMOS AND BETAS AND FIRST DIBS/HANDS ON CONTENT INFO. INSTEAD, WE GET SHAFTED. THE DEMOS WE GET, ARE MAYBE A WEEK EARLY VS THE PSN RELEASE, AND THE BETAS?!! UM RESISTANCE 2! WHAT HAPPENED! WHY ARE THE QORE SUBSCRIBERS NOT ALLOWED ACCESS WHICH THEY WERE PROMISED IN OCTOBER.

THE LEAST YOU COULD DO IS EXPLAIN WHY WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR STUFF WE PAID FOR. COMMUNICATION IS NICE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE OUR MONEY. :)

Thanks for the Motorstorm demo. I already have the game paid off so I guess we will see if it stays that way tonight.

Also, where is my Resistance beta code. Gamestop res. redeemed the registration code yet no e-mail.

And off topic but I love the official headset that came with Socom. With out a doubt the best console chat device that I have ever used across all platforms.
