It is interesting as how everyone missed this post.
Thank you for the update, Grace. Some cool stuff in store this week.

Nice update. It took forever for Castlevania Chronicles to finally get released since it was shown to exist according to the ESRB website… I really hope other games come soon. Suikoden 2 would be ideal.

WOOOT!!

great update guys!!

just a question, and please answer it.

are you going to put Crash Team Racing or are you going to keep a EU exclusive?

+ Albanian_Killa on December 18th, 2008 at 5:43 pm said:

Metal Gear Online is a sad game. A game with potential. What happened? It used a seperate online service.

Never let this happen again Sony. Letting Konami put in Konami ID’s in MGO was the biggest mistake ever. Don’t go backwards, move forward.

+ Stoffinator on December 18th, 2008 at 5:45 pm said:

Lots of cool stuff there. And I agree with MGO. They screwed it up by making us sign up for separate IDs. Is this the PS2 era?

Oh jeez, signing up for a website isn’t all that difficult. It’s a one time deal, and you can have the system always remember your name and password.

It takes not even 10 minutes of your time.

+ Tassar on December 18th, 2008 at 5:48 pm said:

Awesome update.

Crash Commando for sure along with the LBP stuff and amazing Uncharted 2 footage.

LOL at anyone who wastes money on the Penny Arcade garbage.

Thank god. Finally.

And look! PSP Content!

And a Good PS1 game (Castlevania), and a pretty good PSP game (for 10 bucks), I’m happy this week Sony!

Keep up the good updates!

And a Sonic Demo. w00t.

+ Tiso on December 18th, 2008 at 5:50 pm said:

Why isn’t there a Crash Commando demo? I don’t understand why there’s this automatic assumption we are going to blindly buy at full price these games without a play test first. It goes to show that a price drop for that Super Robotic Car thing wasn’t doing so hot. In any case, random new PS1 Castlevania being the best thing released this week.

oh one more thing that isn’t an ignorant remark.

Is Castlevania Chronicles for PSP only or can it be played on the ps3? I looked at next years release list and immediately sold my PSP…Weak

ok so half of that was ignorant but can ya blame me?

That whole MGO Konami ID is the only reason why I don’t play MGO. I find it to be a pain in the butt.

Do we need to use that stupid Konami ID to try the MGO demo?

Wow that’s a pretty big update, but apparently (based off of some comments here,) you missed Lumines.

You guys may want to fill in the people wanting to buy that game as to what’s going on with it.

    Don\’t know why people thought it was out today, but if there was any confusion that it was supposed to be out last week or this week, sorry about that.
    I\’m dying to play it too, folks.
    LBP + Lumines = superWIN

Man, you and I both have been waiting for Lumines Supernova for 2 weeks now. First it was suppose to be last week then this week. Now… Nothing! Maybe 2009?

+ lifeRPGs on December 18th, 2008 at 5:59 pm said:

To everyone talking about MGO:

That truly is the reason i did not buy Metal Gear Solid IV yet. My cousin’s friend has it, and i played twice MGO at his place. He told me about all the disadvantages, especially if you want to use another character…it’s all messed up, so i decided to Konami to fix this whole mess to buy it. It’s been more than 6 months and i’m still waiting. And i will continue to do so. Fact is the more i wait, the better for me because i’ll pay less. And where are trophies for MGSIV anyway? One of SCE’s most protected exclusive doesn’t have trophy support….what a joke.


32

+ Bender Rodriguez on December 18th, 2008 at 5:59 pm said:

Let me clarify I thought Chronicles was supposed to be coming as a PS1 classic for the PS3 today. I didn’t know anything about the PSP.


33

+ Delriach on December 18th, 2008 at 6:00 pm said:

Caslevania Chronicles is in the store, and it is playable for the PS3 and PSP like the other PSone classics.

I really find it amazing how people cannot register to an extra website but spend the same amount of time complaining about it.

+ Axecution on December 18th, 2008 at 6:04 pm said:

Same here with the Konami IDs. I forgot my password for one of them that needed to be all numbers… I cant even log on anymore without buying another account for 7 bucks. Screw that.. There may be a forgot password button (i doubt it though, knowing how retarded that Konami ID service is), but i really don’t even care anymore.

Amazing update guys! Got everything we could have asked for. Despite it seeming impossible to complain, i feel i should… Here goes!

-What the hell? Where is the LittleBigPlanet Metal Gear pack? Thought it was supposed to be today? I expected it MUCH earlier than this.
And of coarse, the I was there Day One shirt.

The Rock Band songs this week also suck – but that’s Harmonix’s fault and i’m sure they don’t come here.

These payed themes are also bull. Id like to see a sales chart on how many you’ve sold… im willing to bet its under 1000 world wide.

    Just know that they\’re there as an option if they\’re something you\’re interested in, and we\’ll also continue to provide free Themes too for those that might want those two, as we have over the past few weeks with the Resistance 2, SingStar ABBA, and Super Stardust Portable Themes.

Rock Revolution should definitely keep up the Bemani packs – but include songs from the Japanese Beatmania games. Then, you would have another copy of your game sold. :D

Where is Lumines Supernova?

And last but not least- To Media Molecule- THANKS for the free hat! I hated having Santa without his hat and beard. It just doesn’t fit. Keep up the free costumes by the way! I love’em. And yeah… Hurry up and get that MGS4 pack out. Im waiting. :)
