56

+ T3mpr1x on January 29th, 2009 at 4:35 pm said:

Wait wait wait, $7.49 for the filming stuff in skate 2??? I understand charging for extra storage space, but for extra camera controls that should have been there in the first place is kind of absurd…

Bejeweled for $10, hell nooo!


58

+ DrBingogh on January 29th, 2009 at 4:36 pm said:

Thanks for the update. Think I’d buy Bejewled2 for $4.99 but $9.99 is a little too steep.

When are we gonna get new Avatars?


62

+ xenorevlis on January 29th, 2009 at 4:39 pm said:

Why does Killzone 2 continue to get neglected? There are countless videos you can pick from, tons of art / wallpapers, etc. that should be on the PlayStation Store already.

PLEASE PROMOTE KILLZONE 2.

argh! that Burnout price is tempting! I’ll have to think about that.

I don’t understand exclusive part. Is it exclusive to NA?

I wish you could get back a bit of your money if you already bought the Oasis songs and now want the album.

No excuses for not getting Burnout people! :P
So much game for so little, it’s a crime. :P

We need some PS1 games but I’ll get the LBP costumes.


67

+ sweetsourporker7 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:45 pm said:

Bejeweled 2 is cool thanks for that. id like some PS1 classics though for example CRASH TEAM RACING, Spyro 2 and 3, Crash Bash, Gran Turismo 1. ill like all that. especially CTR.


68

+ LongTallnUgly on January 29th, 2009 at 4:46 pm said:

I hate to be one of those guys but I really would love some more ps1 games,they look so good on my psp. At least give me Suikoden 2. On a similar note some old Sega Saturn games on psn would make my head actually explode (in a good way)

nice update!

Pretty sweet update.. Now.. if I only had some money…

+ DTXSFC on January 29th, 2009 at 4:50 pm said:

There is a major lack of PSP content on the PS Store. So many PS1 titles as well as legacy PSP games to choose and still no love for PSP. It doesn’t make sense especially when the PSP was released before PS3. Japan region has got so much content but the U.S. & Europe always get the crumbs. I love both my PSP & PS3 equally but ever since PS3 been released I noticed a major lack of PSP content. I have no problem with the movies on the PS Store but game content need to be on the same page and make sure to release an equal amount of content to both systems. What’s up with the lack of PSP demos. If it wasn’t for other features like watching movies or tv with LocationFree my PSP would be collecting dust right now. Ready 4 March Madness!

+ Calendaros on January 29th, 2009 at 4:53 pm said:

While the 360 gets a Resident Evil 5 demo, PS3 owners get a demo of Bejeweled.

Obviously delaystation 3 owners are used to being treated as second-rate consumers.


73

+ Tr3p1dat10n on January 29th, 2009 at 4:53 pm said:

Shouldn’t nfl head coach get a price drop too? It’s 20 new and 50 downloadable. Not sure if you control it. But just saying.


74

+ Bildo818 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:55 pm said:

“A price drop for Burnout!? I almost grabbed it last week. Now I’m getting tonight it for sure! HUZZAH!!”

I did grab it last week thankfully for 20 bucks at Target on a gift card. HOWEVER…I would rather have had it on my PS3 off the PSN with the extra cash going to Criterion… :-( But this game is great and I welcome DLC coming soon (which was the reason I wanted this anyway!)

+ maxxy209 on January 29th, 2009 at 4:55 pm said:

Nice update for the ps3 at least.

But can’t lie I do love loco roco updates, pulse is okay but if i wanted to see new stuff for it i’d go to youtube.


76

Bejeweled 2 ($9.99)…isn’t it too much? 4,99 like elefunk is the perfect price

Anyone knows what actually is included in GOW pack? Only stickers or Medusa and Minotaur too? :)

Too much for me to choose from.

That Brain PS3 + PSP pack is looking mighty tempting too. There should be more of those type of deals. :)

+ Geist01 on January 29th, 2009 at 5:14 pm said:

I can’t wait to play Savage Moon but as a PSP owner I have to say you guys are dropping the ball. We all know that the hardware sells well but the software doesn’t so how do you expect anyone else to support it if Sony doesn’t even care about it?


86

Woah Burnout $19.99 skeeet thats cheap i got it way back when it was only in stores and cost me $59.99 and i still think that price was worth it $19.99 is a freakin steal Sweet ill tell my buddies or they’ll see for themselves.

+ Moosehole on January 29th, 2009 at 5:21 pm said:

This is actually a really good update (except for your continued lack of support for the PSP store) so I won’t complain too much, but I’m quite irked that you decided now it would be a good time to bundle the two Brain Challenge games together.

I would have bought the bundle, but I already have the PS3 version and I darn sure won’t buy the PSP version alone for another $10. Boo.


91

+ Kane22_ on January 29th, 2009 at 5:21 pm said:

this store update is better than last week’s i’m buying savage moon & bejewl 2 tomorrow i can’t wait lol i just wish there was a savage moon demo but o well

could you guys snatch that 41 min interview from gamekings.tv and put it on the store as an hd vid? or do they own the rights to it…

where you can get the Characters+a theme for 1 price like the other ones


96

+ John-Shooter on January 29th, 2009 at 5:29 pm said:

for killzone 2 that is.. sry

i could care less about all actual releases right now… not that its bad that thier actually gettin the games out its awesome…

but alot of people want to try the games out rather than shell out the $$$ off hand and maybe changing thier minds down the road…

i bought almost every game out on the store since day 1(i think im up to like 85 overall)… and i play maybe 15 right now and thats mainly cuz of the trophys…

even if they add support for games like gripshift… that would be sweet…

Would love to see some of those PS3 retail games available via PSN. Put Mirror’s Edge or Prince of Persia in there. If it is offered via Steam it should be available via PSN. !?!? I would like them to be available through PSN. just throwing that out there.
