Hello SCEA, why do you hate your PSOne classic selection?

GGCAN said:

Thanks Grace nice update.

Still waiting for the Blast factor trophies update though…hope it comes out a bit later today.

thingg said:

December 4th, 3:50 pm

@49
lol that’s hilarious

wait.
are you really serious??? what is wrong with you man??

OT: solid update guys keep ’em coming. While no demos is kind of disappointing, I can’t help but think how dismal the updates were even just 6 months ago. You guys have been doing an awesome job getting the amount of stuff amped up. Just add more PS1 (and PS2…) games the the store and my life will be complete….

LordChocoSlime said:

December 4th, 3:54 pm

While I was expecting Super Stardust Portable to be added to the PSP section of the PS Store today, I wasn’t expecting three other downloadable games and a trailer. Needless to say, I’m quite impressed with this week’s PSP section update.

I still feel that this type of update would have been perfect had it been available the week after the 5.00 Firmware update, but at least it’s available now.

LordChocoSlime said:

Forgot to include this in my previous comment, but thanks for this week’s update… and for putting up with my constructive criticism. :P

The PSP also got love! insane and awesome

Vegaz said:

December 4th, 3:58 pm

I forgot about PAIN movie studio so I bought that with the other 2 things.

For those that want a new demo so bad there’s one of some arcade racing game remake in the UK store. Just what is it you’re expecting demos for anyway? There’s no more games untill January and the Prince of Persia post says there won’t be a demo. Guess there could’ve been a demo for that downloadable game.

Good update for PSP owners for sure.

ThomasAnthony said:

Qore is bad and you should feel bad.

Protopet said:

December 4th, 4:24 pm

Hey Sony, you guys should do another sale for the PSN games. Those are great, I have picked up a few games through those.

I think in the next one you should include Everyday Shooter and some others(maybe Flow). It seems like Everyday Shooter didn’t get that much attention and a sale would be perfect to get its name out and introduce it to new owners who never heard of it. The sales are great to bring back old games everyone missed or forgot.

sharpshoot2009 said:

December 4th, 4:46 pm

I was nice to try out qore but I cant see paying $24.99 for that much ads. Everything you do in it has ads. That dont seem worth the price to me even $2.99 to download it.

hife said:

December 4th, 4:54 pm

Haha, when I saw all the PSP content I couldn’t wait to hear the PSP guys reactions. They finally got some love.

W1Ls0n_Ngh3 said:

No more free PS3 themes?

Daver said:

December 4th, 5:12 pm

Great update! cant wait for savage moon!

Enigma777 said:

December 4th, 5:23 pm

How about some new AVATARS? Any sign of those coming soon? Do you want me to send you a few? Its not that hard to make 100×100 picture…

smokey_vols said:

December 4th, 5:28 pm

Hopefully this will silence all those PSP users who claim they don’t get any love. Four games this week!

Daver said:

December 4th, 5:46 pm

i just watched the video for savage moon and im a bit disappointed.. Will the game looks like the video? because the video is all blurry, i hope it will be different

Nice to see they are adding more metal to Rock Band. Whats up “Guitar Hero?” Wish we could see additional metal/hardcore packs like century media or nuclear blast. WOO COB!!

GGCAN said:

December 4th, 6:49 pm

Blast factor trophy patch is up.

karmajack said:

December 4th, 6:52 pm

It would be nice to have a Theme preview site or something of the like so we can actually see what they look like. Especially since they cost a fee. As it is now, I won’t take a risk in purchasing one as it may sound good but look stupid.

saintfighteraqua said:

December 4th, 7:09 pm

Nice update!
Except for Namco’s…I’m getting annoyed with their DL content for SC.
They should take lessons from LBP!!!

pocatello said:

December 4th, 8:24 pm

Hi, the fall sale on echochrome and some other games said it ended 12/4/08. I tried to purchase those games tonight (12/4/08) but they showed the old prices. I figured the deal ran until midnight. When did it end? I’m bummed! i tried to buy it last night but had to download the software update! Can anyone help?

Bone of World said:

December 4th, 8:32 pm

Thanks for thinking of the PSP this week. A good update that will keep us occupied for a while.
And then we’ll start complaining again. lol.
Keep up the good work.

So we are getting a free episode of Qore, but what about us yearly subscribers? Does this count as one of our issues, or do we get an extra one?

capcom+PS3=disappointment! no resident evil 5 demo for ps3 in japan today!

norriswolfwood said:

December 5th, 12:58 am

hmmm I cant get the demo in Qore to download, any ideas why?

norriswolfwood said:

December 5th, 1:23 am

Ah, now I know, the demo is for Qore subbers only..fail, sony FAIL.

adri23 said:

December 5th, 3:53 am

Hi!!

It was kind of a letdown this week update, not a lot of content, at least the important one ,like games. I would like to know where are the PSone classics, the US store has really few of them in contrast to the japaness one that has a lot. Where are the games like Metal Gear solid , Final Fantasy VII ,VIII, IX , Xenogears , and all the others PSone games? they will sell far more than any new PSN game(witch to be honest most of them are not really good ones), why they takes so long to realese them in the US while they realese them like every week in Japan? they have to do something about that . At least realese more games each week or demos ,please!!!! do not realse so many video clips ( that you can see in others sites ) and themes or things like that.

Gunwing said:

December 5th, 3:58 am

Well it’s about time the PSP store got a good update! EveryDay Shooter, and SuperStarDust Portable should make fans vary happy! Also major thanks for the killer hard to find PSP games! Get Ace Combat up there please! My copy is about to kick the bucket!

matheaks said:

December 5th, 5:16 am

No Demos? This is an outrage! I took the psn store survey, and I demanded Demos!!Not even the Qore has a beta or a demo!

The Only thing good this week is:
* Super Stardust Portable ($9.99)
* Everyday Shooter ($9.99)
LittleBigPlanet Kabuki Actor (free)

Watchmann said:

December 5th, 7:10 am

Awesome update, particularly in regard to the PSP. I’ve already downloaded SSP, and Everyday Shooter. Nice to see some of the PS3 DLC are in the form of free maps and modes (Age of Booty).

I noticed that the annual subscription for Qore no longer has mention of a full download game to go with it– no “Calling all Cars” or an alternate for this coming year? Not that I’m planning on subscribing. The bonus game had me mildly considering the possibility in the future, with the per episode cost working out to just over a $1. Now at just over $2 per episode, it seems even less likely I would consider a subscription. When you factor in concerns about the “bonuses” not always being delivered in a timely fashion, and the essential “glorified commercial” feel of the show, it does not seem to be a good use of funds.

Dear PSN,

Please consider adding the functionality that would allow the cursor to move down a line and the far right after reaching the left hand side of the above line. That would make me immensely happy!

Chris Morrel do you have any news on a upcoming update with a Resident Evil 5 Demo because I was sort of disapointed since I have freinds playing the demo on their 360 what gives

AGP187 said:

December 7th, 6:22 pm

I have been a fan of GuitarHero for a while but Im beginning 2 regret buying World Tour. Dont get me wrong, its a sweet game but where is the DLC? Sure they gave us a few tracks but how about something people will know and be able to sing along with. “RockBand2” has over 100 add-ons in the playstion store while “GHWT” has about 20″ whats the hold up? Are they ever gonna step it up or are they just going to forfeit their fanbase to “RockBand2”? Why r we so far behind on the DLC?

December 9th, 9:28 am

No demos or PS1 games pretty solid update but i would really like to see a Tomb Raider Underworld demo or s Sonic Unleashed or maybe Prince of Persia demo.

sweetsourporker8 said:

December 9th, 1:40 pm

Please add Crash team racing (ctr) to the PS1 classics. Ive been looking forward to some PS1 games to come in and (ctr) would be really cool.

December 10th, 9:51 am

seriously i personally think, well i can say personally but almost everybody i play ONLINE with thinks the PLAYSTATION STORE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…. u guys NEVER have new downloadable demos, and when u do decide to put demos on the “PLAYSTATION STORE” its stupid ass games that i wont buy if it was the only entertainment in the world….XBOX 360 has ALL the new stuff, u guys slack to much and the word is spreading…u know i would love to try the new COD before i buy it, i would love to play TOMB RAIDER and see what its about before i spend 60 bucks, i would love 2 play LITTLE BIG PLANET before it hits shelves..but its too late and u guys never gave me and thousands of PLAYSTATION buyers the opportunity in what we call TRY IT BEFORE U BUY IT…i currently do not own an XBOX 360 but i can promise u 1 thing, if u guys dont step it up, your gonna lose more than a hundred playstation owners i can guarantee it…
