Nice Update sony…. can we get more themes for the psp pleeeese? Oh and merry christmas to all my PSN friends out there… I hope you all get what you wished for….


103

@101 coramoor_

I just bought the stuff I listed about 15 minutes ago myself, everything works fine.


104

+ Seraphim on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:34 pm said:

Finally!! Suikoden!! Hopefully this brings on Suikoden II as well. Gives me an excuse to go back and play it again, & to actually get some use out of my PSP… Now if we can just start getting some PS games released. ;)

Some great content… LBP MGS add on, Lumines…

However, whoever had the idea of charging for that Disgaea 3 theme should be fired. From the preview it looks like a simple/standard XMB icons w/ wallpaper. That’s crap!!

thanks kowak

just dled it myself


106

Great update. The LBP stuff and Suikoden for me :)


107

+ CelicaCrazed on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:39 pm said:

I was expecting to see an update for Burnout Paradise considering there are now Party Mode Trophies on my Trophy list. Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer :D


108

+ Mana Knight on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:39 pm said:

Awesome content. Lumines SuperNova rocks and definitely worth the price.

Bought the LBP MGS4 content also.

Very glad to see Suikoden on the store. I still own the PS1 version, but I’ll probably buy it on PS3 also.

+ KaiserSosate on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:39 pm said:

Can’t wait to buy the LBP DLC after I install my new Hard drive for the ps3.

Great update! I was pretty surprised to see Suikoden popping out of nowhere! :p

+ Andronicus on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:53 pm said:

im in toronto, seems as if the canadian store didnt update. the only thing i’ve seen was lumines on the main advert when you open the store and it says it costs 9.99 then you click on it and it says 14.99 i dont see any of the mgs stuff, or new dlc from any of the other games for that mattter, not even the lotr demo

new releases section shows stuff from the 17th


112

+ shooter0784 on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:53 pm said:

its an ok update i guess

only amazing if your a lbp person

but the last few updates were weak unless you own that game … i want this damn RE5 demo that ive been seeing videos of and maybe some actual new demos

although its cool to see that you guys conjured up an actual demo for Warhawk and MGO

now do you play on demo servers on the mgo demo like warhawk? i own the game i just was wonderin how it works


113

+ slicecom on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:55 pm said:

Still nothing in the Canadian store…


114

+ Enigma777 on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:56 pm said:

argh… Lumines is too expensive… I’ll wait till you put it on sale. I hope the 15$ per game is not becoming a trend


115

+ Kowak on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:57 pm said:

@111 and 113
Nobody actually reads anything anyone else has posted before they make a comment do they?
My heart goes out to the poor people who read this blog and have to read the same comments over and over after they’ve been addressed.


116

+ Fane1024 on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:58 pm said:

Nice update, but I’m kind of disappointed there isn’t a holiday sale on PSN games like last year and at Thanksgiving. I was hoping to pick up PixelJunk Monsters and/or flOw.

Oh well, less money I have to spend.


117

+ Andronicus on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:59 pm said:

@115
some people don’t have time to read 110 comments, they have other things to do


118

+ shooter0784 on December 23rd, 2008 at 4:59 pm said:

o and i got a question for grace …

why did you guys take my original tekken purchase out of my download list?

i payed 20 bucks for it and i’d like to kno why you removed it

its bad enough you had us pay 30 bucks for the online version cuz it would have been better to just make an add on and have it be cheaper

kinda pissed about that

I’m a european and want MGS LBP Pack’s .. but 12 euros to got it… is dangerous for my and everyone wallet situation…
The crisis is over all us but LBP, and home stuff have hight prices…

The PlayStation 3 when the price drop happens.. xbox have his days off!

I was going to wait until I saw a review of this edition of LUMINES because I don’t want just another port of LUMINES 2. However, I was really disappointed to see that the $10 price was an error on the storefront.


123

+ HairyToeKnuckles on December 23rd, 2008 at 5:13 pm said:

Had Lumines been $9.99, I would have bought it earlier when on the store. $14.99, no thanks.

+ rasheed4544 on December 23rd, 2008 at 5:45 pm said:

In regards to the playstation stores ps1 section, I notice that it lacks in varity including some classic that be there. One of these ps1 classics that the playstation community and I are some what upset about is the classic sony owned game called TOMBA. I have been on many gamer blogs with the concern of this game not having yet been added to the playstation store yet. SO PLEASE MAKE IT A PRIORITY TO GET THE GAME FOR PS1 TOMBA ONTO THE PLAYSTATION STORE.


128

+ HorizonShadow on December 23rd, 2008 at 5:54 pm said:

@50

it’s better than paying 60 a year AND buying this stuff…

good update! although i wont use any songs or LBP, i’m not the only one in the world *caugh*29*caugh*


129

+ HorizonShadow on December 23rd, 2008 at 5:56 pm said:

@127

Never heard of TOMBA. but have you played Legend Of Dragoon? THAT was an amazing game for it’s time.

I think that should be ported, but that’s just me

131

+ jmarcoli on December 23rd, 2008 at 5:57 pm said:

14.99 for Lumines Supernova?! Like what others are saying..i was expecting this to be $9.99 also. Sony should have sold it for $9.99 instead of $14.99. Even if it was advertised for $9.99 on the main page they should have sold it at that price for the time being. Way to go Sony…


132

+ lyfestory on December 23rd, 2008 at 6:01 pm said:

gotta get suikoden.. that was one of PS1’s finest RPGs… now if only they can get FF7-9 as a downloadable title, ill be very happy…

otherwise, ill check out Pulse.. thats about it for me..

Suikoden is a nice surprise too, Castlevania last week, and now this one. Congratulations…

Lumines really needs to be $10 for it to be a big success! I bought it anyway because I am a big fan and the new modes and stuff sound great, but drop the price quick, Sony. Turn Lumines on PSN into a success story!

LittleBigPlanet has changed. Its not just about jumping and climbing, pulling and pushing. No, its about stealth, shooting, taking cover and epic boss-battles. LBP, has changed.

Thank you Media Molecule.
