Very nice update. I bought Savage Moon and LBP DLC.
Glad we got the FF XIII trailer.
I wish Pulse had a weekly update, but still good stuff.
Still waiting on a Penn State theme, guys! :)

+ mendezgato on January 29th, 2009 at 4:22 pm said:

good i was wondering if there was going to be a demo for bejeweled or not, @9.99 I’m going to let the demo talk for the game.


19

+ cowboyvssamurai on January 29th, 2009 at 4:22 pm said:

Burnout for $20, that’s absurdly wonderful. Also, Savage Moon! I don’t know about Bejeweled, I’ll give the demo a try.


20

+ Rev_Chris on January 29th, 2009 at 4:22 pm said:

Hey this update is great!
Pulse and free Mirrors edge content

I’m most excited for Savage Moon , cant wait to get started on that one!


21

+ ExPresident on January 29th, 2009 at 4:23 pm said:

Sweet, just bought Savage Moon.

More for the PSP please. Wasn’t there talk of putting the psp games on the store or something awhile back? That would be awesome! I’d buy more ;(


22

+ Nagis on January 29th, 2009 at 4:23 pm said:

Savage Moon is now mine. Thank you so much for this update. I look forward to playing it.

Also, totally was not expecting a FF13 trailer. Not really interested in playing it, but I am going to check it out. Ever since 12, I really was not too happy with it.


23

+ troyhw on January 29th, 2009 at 4:24 pm said:

Thank god, I bought Burnout yesterday. Full $30 Price. Thanks.

26

+ ThAGRiZZ45 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:25 pm said:

Oh gosh that DLC for Mirrors Edge is free?!? This must not be the same one I’m thinking of. lol cuz the DLC I saw was definitely worth paying for.

And I’m definitely gonna get the God of War Pack. I can always count on a good week. lol

p.s avatar help anyone?!?


27

+ NewYork214 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:25 pm said:

looks good. gonna download the demo and some trailers.


28

+ Gumbydunzeeto on January 29th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

I’ll be perfectly willing to buy Bejeweled and Savage Moon.

When they come out on a *PROPER* disc format.

+ iNexxFear on January 29th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

I don’t see the Guitar Hero Oasis Pack out on the store!!!! I will check after my present download are done again, but looks as it it might have been missed…

+ DeforMAKulizer on January 29th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

Awesome update! =D
Great amount of content…
Hope for more PSOne games! =D


31

+ TerryVSL on January 29th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

Got Savage Moon
Little Big Planet stuff
Bejeweled 2 Demo
and Pulse

Great update. The FFXIII in game/non-CGI graphics look horrible. Square really is dead this gen. With the turds Square has put out so far this gen don’t really care when or if the game comes out.

White Knight Chronicles
Demon’s Souls
Persona 4
and my giant backlog of PS1 and PS2 rpgs will be more than enough for the next couple of years

i want NARIKO costume

Is there gonna be a demo for Savage Moon? I’m not really into strategy games, but this one looks interesting.


35

+ SarshelYam on January 29th, 2009 at 4:28 pm said:

GREAT Update!! The Toro and Ape Escape LBP costumes are worth the price of admission alone…

…and Mirror’s Edge content (drool).


36

+ kdiep on January 29th, 2009 at 4:28 pm said:

OMG Burnout Paradise is MINE!!! FINALLY. Been waiting for this price drop.


37

+ ROLO_ONFIRE on January 29th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

Good update, if the LBP costumes were $.99 I’d buy them, but at $1.99 I rather buy Rock Band songs. Also when are you going to release the software for PS2 retro compatibility? please improve the old 80GB compatibility and add it to the new models.


38

+ Charliesdad on January 29th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

ummm Donde Esta RE5 demo? Am I that out of the loop or was I misled that it was coming to PS3 as well? But, excellent update anyways.


39

+ SpyDudeFX on January 29th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

GOW Mini Pack is Minotaur and Medusa plus the stickers. And Bejeweled and SM both look great, so this is a good update.


40

+ ROLO_ONFIRE on January 29th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

@38: it will be released next week


41

+ Lex_Yayo_407 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

There should be demos for all games that become available on the PSN.


42

+ Patriotbball5460 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:30 pm said:

What happened to the Chinese New Year LBP Costume???


43

+ ROLO_ONFIRE on January 29th, 2009 at 4:30 pm said:

@41: definitely, I’m not buying a PSN game again without trying it first, I already missed once.


44

+ BrianC6234 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:30 pm said:

“Bejeweled 2 should be 4.99″

It is what it is. And $9.99 is a good price. I paid $20 back when I bought the Windows version.


45

+ mixedkidbx on January 29th, 2009 at 4:32 pm said:

who decides what to put in updates? end of last year you claimed that 09 would feature updates that are GREAT.

so far…… still waiting to see what is so great…


46

I’ve always been curious since I’ve seen so many posts about it on these boards–What’s the huge deal about Savage Moon?


47

+ Dorian_D on January 29th, 2009 at 4:32 pm said:

ok update but would like to see some new demos


48

+ depward on January 29th, 2009 at 4:33 pm said:

And on goes the wasted potential for the Playstation Store for PSP. Is one PS1 game a week that hard? One every other week? Or even releasing older PSP games through downloadable means?

I remember when the Playstation Store for PSP was announced. I was psyched.

But it has been really disappointing..

+ norm01 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:33 pm said:

@42 the CNY LBP costumes are already available in the PS store, have you checked?
