Cuboid, eh? I didn’t realize it was coming so soon. And be sure to thank Namco Bandai for me- these free Naruto DLC packs are great. :D

Qore is the only appealing thing on the list…

When is Savage Moon coming out?

+ reson8er on January 8th, 2009 at 2:07 pm said:

I must say, no demos and no PS1 Classics makes me sad.


12

+ AceGamer on January 8th, 2009 at 2:08 pm said:

That’s it?

I was hoping for a beefy update, since you guys were gone for about two weeks.

+ StalkingSilence on January 8th, 2009 at 2:08 pm said:

Looking forward to the weekly LBP DLC resuming on January 22. I hope new PS3/PSP owners understand that we normally are privileged with more content.

It’s ok, I’m still working on my trophies.

that sucks. cant get to ps3 so was hoping something for PSP this week. a video or anything

When I saw: WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 Roster Update ($4.99)
I was surprised at first… then I saw the SIZE of the download and what all it included. If you’re going to charge for roster updates – that’s the way to do it.

I was looking forward to Savage Moon. :(

This is garbage, sony does not care about us owners who only have the psp, and can’t afford the ps3 yet

Where is Savage moon!!!

+ shooter0784 on January 8th, 2009 at 2:11 pm said:

wouldnt say dull but i want a demo for resident evil already… 360 got one what 3 weeks ago…

more actual releases is a + no matter how you look at it but dont forget about the demos…

its kinda retarded that you gotta buy qore to get the head start on fear 2 demo.. and you have to actually put money down on killzone to play that demo.. and wait none the less…

but hey keep the updates rolling..

I can’t believe Qore is up to episode 8 already…where does the time go?

Thanx 4 the update!

What about Valkyria Chronicles DLC? :(

crap, skate 2 demo?


23

Mercs 2 DLC, with a price tag this time? Last time it was free, I wonder if it has improved with this price increase.

+ C-h-a-o-s on January 8th, 2009 at 2:13 pm said:

I for one will be all over Mahjong!

For those of you complaining did you forget last week and the week before where holidays? Even game developers and those who work in the gaming industry deserve a break.

What is going to happen with the Rock Band songs? We are now a week behind. I might get qore but I was expecting much more this week…


27

+ Nagis on January 8th, 2009 at 2:15 pm said:

Hey guys, it’s a great update! However Savage Moon was promised in the Fall (I remember the Blog post that got my hyped about it) and yet it still isnt here. Will there be by any chance any news about this? (I was hoping to get it while my Wisdom teeth heal up, but I guess Fallout 3 will help me there, haha)


28

+ EvoAnub1s on January 8th, 2009 at 2:16 pm said:

Custom soundtracks for all ps3 games past a certain date. If it can be done with trohpies it can be done with custom soundtracks too. Along with album editing of multiple files in one fell swoop.

i wont be picking any purchases up for a while i want more retail demos … i sank alot of money into games i bought like 45+ of them on the store…

get some more demos out and more trophy support for psn games that are already released… thats all i ask for…

i remember at 1 point all we got was videos and backrounds every week… so im happy with any real update…

Skate 2 Demo only for XBOX owners!


32

+ Stoffinator on January 8th, 2009 at 2:18 pm said:

Wow weak update. Thought there be a lot more being its been like two weeks. But I guess there isn’t much to “give” this time of year with everything being out.


33

+ SantanaClaus89 on January 8th, 2009 at 2:19 pm said:

This update is terrible. Sorry but it is. Give us Savage Moon please.


34

+ juuken on January 8th, 2009 at 2:19 pm said:

And the whining commences.

Not a bad update. Cuboid does interest me so I may get that.


35

+ crystalx3d on January 8th, 2009 at 2:20 pm said:

Would’ve liked to see something for the psp this week. Maybe a theme or some wallpaper would’ve been nice too. And as always, some ps1 classics would be great, especially a few of the classic square-enix games that japan is hoarding to itself.


36

+ ninjatuned on January 8th, 2009 at 2:21 pm said:

Savage Moon please! Europe got it before X-mas. Why no love for the US?


37

+ THATPSPGUY on January 8th, 2009 at 2:21 pm said:

yes yes it does, did you expect anything less out of the loyal fans?
1 demo would have been nice.


38

+ BigRon3400 on January 8th, 2009 at 2:22 pm said:

How underwhelming.


39

+ LordChocoSlime on January 8th, 2009 at 2:22 pm said:

While those two new downloadable games seem interesting, I don’t own a PS3 and I don’t plan on buying one anytime soon. Also, it sucks that there’s nothing new for the PSP this week. :(

Then again, I have a couple PSP games & PS Store game downloads Including Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, God of War, Star Ocean, Yggdra Union, Puzzle Quest, and Suikoden to keep me busy for a while. :)

“wouldnt say dull but i want a demo for resident evil already… 360 got one what 3 weeks ago…”

No it didn’t…

As for people asking for the skate 2 demo, it’ll be out on the 15th. EA had a press release stating this.


41

+ juuken on January 8th, 2009 at 2:24 pm said:

How could anyone, and I mean ANYONE not realize it was probably the holidays, the folks at Sony have families to celebrate Christmas/New Years with and maybe that’s why updates are a little lackluster?

For [DELETED] sake, be thankful for what you have!


42

+ NinjasOwn on January 8th, 2009 at 2:24 pm said:

What is with all the dumb complaining. Isn’t it always kind slow around the beginning of a new year. As someone already pointed out these men and women more than deserve vacation time of there own, and for some to expect them to be working during there time off is beyond idiotic. Quite frankly anyone that shares that arrogant mentality should be ashamed of themselves.

+ schwaa on January 8th, 2009 at 2:25 pm said:

@31

skate 2 demo is next week

@19

Wasn’t the RE5 demo japan only?

When the hell is Europe going to get those Naruto add-ons? I dodn’t import the game because of them, looks like I should have after all.

Please, tell your friends in Europe that there are people that own Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm here as well.

This is not the greatest update, that’s for sure. I might be interested in the episode of Qore if you would give us more details about it.

Oh well, at least next week will be good. For those who don’t know we get the Skate 2 demo next week. It’s not 360 exclusive. I guess because of the holiday break they couldn’t get it to us this week. I don’t know.
