@ PullusPardus
That’s 250 dollars the are not having. I bet Konami would prefer to sell the game at 6 bucks and make some money to let a few gain a lot of money or their games.

For Suikoden, how long are you allowed to make your characters name? If it were 9 or 10 letters I might actually consider buying it.

How about some DLC for Wipeout HD, where’s all the tracks from previous games that they keep talking about becoming available..? And how about some more teams, like Xios or Van-Uber..?, They’d be interesting to add to the mix..;)

+ psyXcho on December 25th, 2008 at 8:08 am said:

yet another week of me complaining about prices.

Lumines lost a sale at $15, would have picked this up in a second for $10. Keep that in mind for future releases.

Nice update!!!

@Sony

Apparently the PSN has rather poor content compared to the XBox Live (from what I’ve heard) and there’s one thing I can’t figure out :

You’ve got a huge amount of older PSX/PS2 games that could be available if you wanted to. Final Fantasy games for instance. I’m sure it’ll be hugely successful if you release them.

@ GRACE CHEN & SONY…… you guys advertise jeopardy 9.99 and i purchased it n it charged me1499 …….. HELP SONY…..

TY X1000 for Suikoden!!!!! I am a VERY happy PS3 owner right now :D. All I need now is to see Suikoden 2 up on the PS Store ;).

+ Completist on December 30th, 2008 at 4:21 am said:

How about some more PSone classics? Wouldn’t mind d/ling Blood Omen or Soul Reaver. :)

+ shadow3357 on December 30th, 2008 at 11:55 pm said:

I think that an awsome update would be some fresh avatars. BUT SO FAR THE XMASS UPDATES RULE!!! Is there a resident evil 5 demo comming any time soon?


211

+ Mickeymac93 on January 1st, 2009 at 2:48 pm said:

Meh, the only PSOne RPGs I want to play are Xenogear and Brave Fencer Musashi, so I think I’ll save my money. Funny, I almost bought this the day the day the update hit, nut I was 1 penny short, and didn’t feel like adding 5 whole dollars, just to get something I probably wouldn’t have liked anyways.

Is there going to be a store update this week? >.>


213

+ NarutoSoul on January 2nd, 2009 at 7:47 am said:

@212:
Guess not… Must’ve worn themselves out bringing this last one to us, or maybe they were nursing a New Year’s hangover. :P


214

+ Nick212004 on January 2nd, 2009 at 10:00 am said:

What happened with the store update. I understand that it was New Year’s but you guys usually release the update on the Tuesday before the holiday, which you guys did not do this week. Does that mean we will get it today? If so, can you guys please put the January Qore even though it “technically” is not the first Thursday of the month.

why isnt there any good add-ons or for the most just about any at all for PSP games???

+ JROD0823 on January 4th, 2009 at 11:03 am said:

Why are we being subjected to an over two week long hiatus on playstation store updates. It is an absolute travesty. Was the entire playstation department too juiced after new years and still suffering from an atomic hangover or something?

Saw a guy from Europe playing Savage Moon — looks like they’re getting their updates.

I just want some newer demos.. lord of the rings, i’m not interested in.. even some newer games that I haven’t had a chance to buy yet. SOMETHING different. more of a suggestion.. not complaining

It would be nice if Sony listed on their site that new releases normally are added to the Playstation Store between 3pm and 6pm EST. I’ve been reloading the Playstation store every hour today waiting for the new Guitar Hero songs…after so many frustrating hours, I finally called them and found out I have to check again between 3pm and 6pm EST. Just figured this would be useful info to everyone else in this blog as well.
