When will we get Metal Gear Solid original PS1 game? Other than that, great update!

I read an article not too long ago about how the PSP is pretty much dead. I think whoever wrote the article did pretty well at predicting the future of the PSP. It’s pretty disappointing that no games have been added recently that are any good (besides Suikoden) other than the PSP, the updates for the PS3 are good. RIP Sony PSP

Worse and worse every week. Sony you have now wasted an entire months worth of sales, high five. Talk about a bunch of lazy ass people, your about the only people in the world still on holiday.

+ iNexxFear on January 29th, 2009 at 6:02 pm said:

I don’t think it’s fair that PSN or the vendor repackages songs that have already been distributed in a earlier track pack for the music games…

I have just found out that in November 2008 GH World Tour released 3 of the songs included in the latest track pack. If you downloaded these you are ineligible for the new track pack, and have to forfit the extra $$ to get the add-ons!

So owners and fanatics of Guitar Hero, TAKE NOTE of this one!

Sad, sorry and pathetic, 1 month down jack to show for it. Holiday still going for scea, must be nice. Is it that none of you have a clue or is it that you just dont care? Make sure not to reply just to show how pathetic it has become!

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…

I totally agree! If this is the direction DLC is heading I will stop buying games all together. Shame on you Sony and EA, for making us pay for something that should have been included in the game from day one!

Great update so far. Let’s see some more LUMINES Supernova DLC!!

By the way, while we’re dropping prices, would it be possible to do that for Go! Sudoku. I’d like to grab it, but it’s been out since launch yet still has a pricing scheme I’m not really up for. Certainly doesn’t seem like it’s even in the same league as Go! Puzzle, which to this day is my proudest purchase off of PSN at $6 for three games.

Love the Brain Challenge bundle, by the way. Going to try it out on my PSP tomorrow.

Great update! :D

+ willxcore on January 29th, 2009 at 9:58 pm said:

The European update included a downloadable version of Buzz Master Quiz directly from the PSN. The European store also has Patapon available in the same way. I eventually broke down and bought Patapon and I do want Buzz but I would much MUCH rather these games be accessible from a memory stick. I don’t want to switch UMDs all the time nor do I want to carry so many with me at once. Please US Store, consider releasing more full games on the PSN.

I have to agree with most PSP owners right now the PSP store is vary lacking in downloads right now Demos, and add on content, as well as new themes, and preview videos.

Right now the new Nintendo DSi has more content up right now then we do. On top of that Nintendo is supporting their hand held vary well unlike Sony. We did at one time have a good stream of PSone games, and a few PSP game Demos now and then but sadly it seems the PSP has gotten the Ax while the PS3 gets all the goodies!

WTF SONY! SUPPORT YOUR PSP FANS! NOT ALL OF US HAVE THE CASH FOR A $500.00, $400.00 PS3 system!
