Well, weeks back i asked a few times when Savage Moon will be out…

I stopped aksing for Savage Moon because Savage Moon indeed is RELEASED since about 2 or 3 weeks, at least here in Germany (thats why my english s*cks, sorry for that).

So… the Text within the Game is so few that it cant be only a translation related Problem.

I simply dont get it, maybe you will get an Admin Comment on that.

Few more Infos:

Date: Released in Germany about the 23 or 24th of December 2008.

Price: 7,99€ (Euro) should be around 10 bucks.

Difficulty: compareable to Pixel Junk Monsters, definatly adressed to the more “Hardcore” Tower Defense Fans.

Closing Comments:

Well worth the Money, what i dont like is the fact that there are “Bugs” (the 6 legged Ones, not Errors within the game) that shoot back at your Towers, if you dont have well upgraded Repair Towers since the Wave with those Bugs appears your f***ed.

Greetings from Europe.

People of Sony

I want to say that you Playstation 3 is a great videogame console, but I see and hear that there’s a lot of complains about the service you’re offering, PSN Store, Home, Store Prices, delays, etc, etc. So don’t you realise that everythink is getting wrong? Don’t you realise that you’re loosing ground against Microsoft and his 360? Please take into account all of our comments and do something, try to keep all the PS3 users happy, give more support here in Mexico, I thing that Latin America is a big market for you, but it seems that it doesn’t matter to you, anyways I hope you can read this and take the necesarry measures to this.

I hope that Sony would be the Sony that was when the PS2 was in the top.

Any chance we’d be able to get the first two PULSE episodes in 1080p? I’m sure a lot of us would like to catalog the success that is the PSN, as well as admire Christina’s beauty. Though not necessarily in that order.

And yeah, hurry up with those WIPEOUT PULSE add-on packs too… been nearly a year since those Europeans got them!

@108 could you or anyone example to me how the ps3 loosening ground with 360? here the fact ps3 has outsell 360 for 8 months in 2008. 360 have been out for 3 years and have a 10 million console lead to the ps3 that only been out for 2 years . xbl and psn have the same number of online members . looking at dec npd number the ps3 sell have gone up 40 % and this is the important part the cheapest ps3 will cost you 399 and the cheapest 360 is 199 but 360 only have a 10 million console lead wow that something to be worry about ? lol . if people stop believe in this ps3 vs 360 hype and look at realistic number then you will see the progress sony made with ps3. its a fully loaded machine out the box you dont have to pay for extra parts or service . you are not going to scare sony into a price cut when they can see the number too one months dont make or break you its about years to year growth .

I am extremely happy to see GTI Club+! I have been waiting for this ever since it was announced months ago.

Like others I am now waiting on Savage Moon, but I will be mature about it and wait patiently as I play through the numerous other games I have on my PS3.

However, if Sony would like to get the consumers to quit acting like their moms just died from a heart attack because certain games didn’t show up in all regions at once, I suggest calling the San Diego studios and asking the PAIN! team how they manage worldwide releases on everything they do.

And while I am making suggestions, my PSP really looks like it could use GPS functionality, especially when MGS: Portable Ops is playing.

Hey Sony!

Please bug Sega about releasing Yakuza 3 over in North America!

This is an exclusive I would buy on day one!!

This talk of maybe not releasing Y3 over here is getting me down. :(

This week’s PS Store update for the PSP section looks pretty decent. I’m going to buy that Ultimate Ghosts ‘N Goblins download after I take care of a few other expenses. While I’m not interested in Buzz! Master Quiz, it’s nice to see a demo of the game now available. Thanks for the update.

Oh, and I have one quick question for those in charge of PS Store content. Are there plans for more downloadable PSP demos for games such as Super Stardust Portable?

also..
the downloads are way to slow, especially compared to the competition, sony must do something about it…we are in 2009…

psp ghouls and ghost game is good.. but at $ 19.99? tooo much for a psp dl game, best iphone games cost $ 9.99 ( sim city, god of war clone, ferrari challange, rolando and so on )

i guess we will never get the good ps1 games, 2 years later and still no resident evils.. ff, diablo, dark forces, doom collection and all the other great roleplaying games

someone is not doing there job properly, i will gladly help….

So yeah I made an account to [DELETED] about Savage Moon too. At least there was some random PS3 owner bugging fluffy logic about the release date, instead of, you know, SCEA giving us any useful information whatsoever. Instead we get more themes for a game that we can’t play. Another reason to buy an xbox. On top of getting shafted on Fallout content, GTA content, Oblivion content, Red alert 3 etc. etc. Sony Failstation.

Hi, I’m trying to find the official Square Enix Crisis Core – Final Fantasy VII PSP XMB Theme available for download on the Playstation Store. I haven’t been able to find it at all on the Playstation Store and am wondering if its still available. If i’m not mistaken, it was released on March 27, 2008. If it is available, please email me at fallenprodigy@yahoo.com, or at least let me know where I can download it from. I’m tired of all the knockoffs that people have been releasing and want the official Square Enix release. Thank you.
