Nice. A wipeout Demo.

The update was ok..

Atleast good for those that dont have Wipe out HD.

Awesome i finally get to try out WipeOut HD and the Resistance Retribution trailer is really cool! Loved the demo! Thanks, Sony!

+ Loniki on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:19 pm said:

What a crappy update. Late and LAME. I was expecting Savage Moon.

+ tetsou9shima on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:19 pm said:

A wipeout demo is very smart….I would have never bought the game but we’ll see if I change my mind after the demo….thanks again for a great update.

+ Moosehole on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:19 pm said:

Horrendus update. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.


20

+ Jersey-Gamer on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:20 pm said:

Good add-on content, but it’s a sad state of affairs to see that there aren’t any full games this week. There’s not even a PS1 classic from the archives to fill in the gap here.

Sony should really try to get at least one game released on the store each and every week, as their competitors are able to maintain this pace.


21

+ Wip3ou7 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:20 pm said:

WipEout HD demo is great news! That game is amazing and everyone should try it out!

Nice update.

Buy WipEout HD everybody.


24

+ CaptainRamirez on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:22 pm said:

Good update, F.E.A.R 2 ran so smooth & it look great, can’t wait to play the full version.


25

+ mafia28 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:22 pm said:

@Aggie_CEO

i read an article that on jan.22(today) there will be 2 new trailers for those games. Guess they were fake


26

+ DMeisterJ on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:22 pm said:

Oooh, WipEout HD Demo, Noice.

Aside from that, this update has little fanfare.


27

+ Fluidshine on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:22 pm said:

Of course they come out with a Wipeout HD demo RIGHT after I buy it lol great timing…can’t wait for savage moon and especially FAT PRINCESS!!!! Also can’t wait for lbp DLC.


28

+ toology01 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:22 pm said:

Wow i feel sorry for the people that bought the brain challenge expansion when it came out last week for more $. That must piss some peeps off. Anyway probably the lamest update ive seen in a while. However im not too worried since Feb/Mar should be bringing us some of the best updates to date. Fat Princess, Flower, Savage Moon, maybe even Rag Doll Kung Fu (wishful thinking). Not to mention the upcoming LBP DLC, lets hope for a Killzone level pack developed in collaboration with Guerilla around the Killzone 2 release. Need more dev levels!

+ rcrsuper on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:23 pm said:

really can you guys give any less support for the psp?

the european update was amazing, US? MEHHHHH

+ c-murph on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:23 pm said:

Rock Band and Naruto for me!


31

+ starblinky01 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:24 pm said:

thats cool you guys are putting ‘bonus’ content from blue rays in the blue ray trailer section, you need to do that more, then I will actually download it, usually I only download the movie trailers when i REALLY want to see the movie


32

+ JPMCH on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:25 pm said:

Where’s the new God of War III trailer?

Meh Update

+ spyker3292 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:26 pm said:

Great, Skate 2 cheat…. I was hoping for the video effects pack, but I’m still (and will always be) pissed about EA.


34

+ womfalcs3 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:26 pm said:

Good update. I’ve been dying to try out WipEout HD (Only played it on PSP), and FEAR 2 will be interesting to play.


35

+ SPOOKULA209 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:28 pm said:

yeah the skate 2 dlc already unlock everything? this update was not that great, but next week is all the dlc for lbp!


36

+ cuz_im_fly_homeboy on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:28 pm said:

i would like to compliment your marketing skills… only one week ago did qore subscribers finally get their hands on fear 2 demo… some people even paid for the single episode to get it and then you give it to everyone for free. good job sony! i bet you have ticked off quite a few people.


37

+ TheInfectedBy590 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:29 pm said:

Yay, FEAR demo!
Ok, now I want Fat Princess! I know it’s set for Spring, but who knows when that will be?! :(


38

+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:29 pm said:

For someone whose never been a First Person View gamer I must say that FEAR2 has changed that singlehandedly. That game is so intense and scary it gave me chills and made my hair stand on end. The developers of FEAR2 should get a good pat on the back for DOING IT RIGHT. I about jumped outta my seat when the ghosts charged at me. Thanks for the Demo as it was truly GREAT!

Also Grace good update today but that Skate 2 dlc should have been pushed back a month or so. I mean release something that opens all the game the day before release. That is going to let inexperienced people open up the whole game only to lose the experience gained by playing to unlock everything. Seems like cheating to me.
Everything else is Great today. Another thing is since there is a BIG demo on My bday which is a Tuesday, does that mean that the store Update is going to happen on Tuesday’s instead of Thursday’s? I hope it is moved up so that it gives YOUR gamers a chance to chat up the content released in the store all week long at school or work or just socializing.

Back to Socom….. oh can you find out about word of Download Content for that.
Thanks MMkay

+ Watchmann on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:29 pm said:

A very blah update that’s redeemed only by the Wipeout HD demo.

@11 you want a demo of a demo? :)

The inconsistant PSP love continues to show: nothing but “Premium” Themes. I was kind of hoping the PSP would be spared. Fortunately, I’m still backlogged on my PSP titles.

+ MUGEN02 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:29 pm said:

Wow, it took a month for SCEA to get the demo of Wipeout HD to the US PS store. Nothing for me to download this week.

PS. the PS3 FEAR demo runs like……


41

+ cmargary on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:30 pm said:

nope…. not a good update and more when I had the fear qore demo. The only thing that make my day is Stand Alone RB song… I really want savage moon since PJ monsters because I wanted a more mature TD. Don’t get me wrong I love it but hated the music and the CS suttort came later…


42

+ x3AM on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:31 pm said:

Garbage update is garbage.

Now wheres my cross-game voice chat?

Get on it sony, chip chop chip.


43

+ Unknown_Hero on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:31 pm said:

decent update, no demo (that people really wanna play) as usual


44

+ rbanke on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:31 pm said:

I am amazed that EA has the balls to charge 5 bucks for what is essentially a cheat code. Grace, if I were you i’d feel dirty just having my name attached to that garbage.


45

+ JohnnyMoses on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:33 pm said:

lol at this update! Funny joke! No seriously though, where’s the real update?


46

+ Chase167 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:34 pm said:

Skate 2 Time Is Money are you for real
day1 DLC
this should be in the game


47

+ sNsKid on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:35 pm said:

I’m sorry, but this update was pretty damn lame.

However to everyone reading this the F.E.A.R. 2 demo is definitely worth it.
I downloaded it last week thanks to Qore and I loved it every second of it. Play it with the sound up and the lights off!!

+ metsfan754 on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:36 pm said:

I miss LBP’s weekly updates.


49

+ schwaa on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:36 pm said:

Bad update, but considering all the PSN games we’re getting in Feb. (Flower, Savage Moon, etc..) I guess we can forgive you this time. Bring on Fat Princess! Oh, and MORE PS1 GAMES!!

+ Jewdo on January 22nd, 2009 at 5:37 pm said:

outside of the Wipeout demo nothng really to even give a 2nd look at
