YOU SOB’S A SOLO PACK FOR STARDUST ADD-ON AFTER WE JUST PAID 10 DOLLARS!!! THAT IS BS! I love stardust HD and I purchased Stardust for PSP. But to turn around and tack on an expansion like this 2 weeks later….. It’s like you guys were waiting to charge us more.

Great update Sony! I am glad to see not only one but two PS1 games for download! Awesome just keep this up mainly getting more than one PS1 game for download to expand the PS1 Classics section. Maybe add some more PS1 games on the esrb website that have been there for months like Legacy of Kain, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3. Can’t wait to download the Sonic Unleashed demo.

Noel, have you watched Pulse? There’s a really good reason why we all thought Lumines would drop today; we saw it on a Sony-produced show streamed inside of Home.

@ 31

LOL! That is so true. You’d think MGS4 would’ve been one of the first titles to have Trophy support. It’s one of the most important PS3 title at the moment. I’ve sent countless amounts of emails to Konami about this too.

@ Noel: Sorry for the late reply.

At first, she says coming soon, and it says the same thing on the screen. However, as she’s closing out the segment, she specifically says it’ll be available “next week.” Keeping in mind that Pulse started streaming into Home last week, it made sense to deduce that it’d be available this Thursday.

@Noel replying to post 45 saying:

“WildArms 1 is currently available from the Store, and who knows – maybe it’ll get some company soon…”

Keeping 3rd party games away because Sony has limited to no control over them, give us at least Wild Arms 2 and Legend of Dragoon.

So the rumors were wrong :( Rayman 2 is’nt a PS2 game. PS3 is my first playstation console so I missed out on a lot of great PS2 games that are now getting sequels on PS3. I’d love to play all those prequels and hopefully you guys will surprise us with a PS2 section to the store at a later date…..crosses fingers

I appreciate all your hard work :)

    + Noel Silvia on December 18th, 2008 at 9:45 pm said:

    Rayman 2 was actually available on multiple consoles under different subtitles. The PS2 version was called Rayman 2: Revolutions. The one that is now up on the Store is the PSone Classic, and this version is playable on both your PS3 and PSP.
    Little funfact, but – the Dreamcast *heart* version was also subtitled \”The Great Escape\”.

Lumines Supernova IS up in Japan/Hong Kong along with a free holiday theme pack. They also got a putt-putt version of Hot Shots featuring Toro the Sony Cat (bring it out here too! Can replace Toro with sackboy if need be),the original DOA for PS1 and some funny looking hampster game for PSP.

Last weeks GHWT song I wanted and this weeks only added up to $4 and next weeks stuff is free so I bought Castlevania too.

Crash Commando kicks ass.

Gameplay is tight and balanced for the various weapons. The trophies are good with no stupid ones that require certain hardware or multiple people or controllers. The online is intense and exhausting because it is so fast paced.

Absolutely perfect for 10 bucks.

And I don’t know about anyone else, and I don’t know if I was supposed to, but I found the Uncharted 2 trailer really funny.

Noel Silvia seeing as your being generious to answere afew questions, I have one for you. Currently as it stands the PlayStation Network is lacking in the Avatar section. Will we be seeing an increase in Avatars we can choose from, aswell as premium Avatars we can buy from the PlayStation Store?

If there is currently no plan for this at the time, is there anyway you can pass the word on too SCEA? Becouse this is one of the major advancments many PlayStation 3, and PSP users would like too see.

Thanks

Yeah, get that festive pack so you can have a Christmas-themed level even though Christmas is going to be forgotten in about 6 days, lol. I’ll hold out for the MGS pack, thanks.

And why don’t these developers release demos for their games like they do on XBL? You think I’m parting with $10-$15 based on the dev’s description of what the game is!? This is a new age in gaming… no show, no dough, folks.

And while I normally stifle my criticism of Rock Band, I would think that a bunch of music-lovers like Harmonix could think up a better country pack than this… no Johnny Cash, no Merle Haggard, none of the “Hanks” (Williams Sr / Jr / III)… heck, even some Steve Earle woulda been nice.

And, yeah, #1 — where IS Lumines Supernova?
