@11 Chulo Boy,

How can you say this update sucks?

If you look back in the past when we only got 3 or 4 items, you complained about lack of content.

Now Sony gives out a lot of content and you still complain. Nothing is pleasing for you, eh? There are a lot of rocks outside to play with instead. Thank You.

12 -> i was wondering the same ;) it’s 5/5 update!

+ libregkd_117 on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:26 pm said:

Are my eyes deceiving me? We finally have Disgaea DLC? Thank GOD! I’ve been waiting forever for those to come stateside. Now heres hoping the Valkyria Chronicles’ DLC comes over soon.

Also, definite LBP purchases as well as Lumines.


25

+ Sakimori_X on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:26 pm said:

I love that all the LBP items have a note that says you have to own the game to use the goodies. Were they really getting that many complaints from people who were buying $2 DLC thinking it was the whole game? Lolzorz!


26

+ absolute on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:27 pm said:

Just bought almost everything new. Great update. Glad to see Lumines wasn’t delayed too much. MGS >!<


27

+ Ti_dus on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:27 pm said:

Suikoden is awesome! If you have that great cooperation – Konami and Sony – PLEASE (!!!) bring MGS1 on PS Store so I could play it on PSP!!! I’m begging you :P

This is YES. Very very very YES.

+ bronxchulo on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:28 pm said:

@18

I dont play LBP so all that stuff means nothing to me. Don’t play all those song games so all that stuff does nothing for me.

Looking thru all the stuff on this list there is nothing here that has my interest except for Suikoden, but doubt i would even download that. Maybe get it for psp.

As far as im concerned there is really nothing in this update that makes it say wow. 1 demo…1?

If you all think this update rocks then wow…. what are you all going to think when they actually put a great update on here. lol

And the last update in ’08 does it in style! Happy Holidays, all!

Thank goodness finally Suikoden!
I have been waiting for good rpg releases for the PS1 classics, it would be nice if we actually get all the classics the japanese PSN has I guess this is a start……. I can’t wait for all the squaresoft, snk, and capcom classics that the japanese psn has, come on be kind sony…. I am glad you don’t have region coding for all the japanese ps1 classics but games like metal gear solid just don’t feel right without david hayter

34

+ CowboyDan on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:30 pm said:

Great stuff. Just picked up MGS and LBP Packs and LUMINES.

I’ll be getting Suikoden as soon as I get the PSN card that I know is sitting in my stocking…


35

+ Vegaz on December 23rd, 2008 at 3:30 pm said:

Finally some reggae for one of these games.

I’ll buy Suikoden eventually (as long as it works on the PS3 as well)

wow the pricing on this stuff is really ridiculous. $2 for themes, $12 if you want both the entire set of LBP DLC. you guys are seriously scum. you are taking advantage of little kids that can’t say no and have no will power. they will buy this stuff and play with it for 5 minutes and realize it wasn’t worth the money. they could have been saving up for a new game.
