Savage Moon looked pretty cool, but I’m not dropping $10 on a downloadable game that doesn’t have a demo… sorry, guys, but I don’t know why you do this in the first place.

That LBP Ape Escape costume is a guaranteed DL for me though… while I’m generally against the concept of paying for additional costumes, I’ll make an exception for Ape Escape. Thanks for bringing this to North America, guys.

MAN this was an expensive week for me lol. Burnout paradise, savage moon and Bejewled 2….damn 50$ gone right there. lol.

Thanks Grace.

I bought Savage Moon yesterday and had lots of fun.

Initially, I thought…wow, this game isn’t too hard to beat.

Well, after a few levels, I still can’t keep these insects from destroying my towers.

Gotta try playing more this weekend.

Kind of addicting.

+ Midgetguy on January 30th, 2009 at 6:50 am said:

This update was a GREAT one! I’ve been obsessing over playing Bejeweled through remote play! I think more games should have remote play for the PSP! It’s a great feature!!!!

Anyways, this update was beautiful! Thanks guys!

(Now I need to go get another PSN Card so I have money for Flower and Noby Noby Boy!)

Getting savage moon later on.


160

+ Pukadon on January 30th, 2009 at 7:13 am said:

I bought Savage Moon, and I agree that the update for the PS3 is great overall.

I would like to see more PSP support too. I’d also like to see more PS3-PSP bundles. It’s really hard to imagine buying the same game twice for a second platform.


161

+ Watchmann on January 30th, 2009 at 7:23 am said:

It seems that if the PSP store content is any indication, Sony has pulled the plug and their handheld is running on battery.

As for the PS3 content, an overall so-so update. I won’t be purchasing Savage Moon without a demo.

I picked up the Bejeweled Demo, although unless it really knocks my socks off, I’m not paying $10 for something available much cheaper elsewhere.

Oh, and paying for reskinned characters still sucks.


162

+ RosenK87 on January 30th, 2009 at 7:25 am said:

Is there any news regarding “The Punisher: No Mercy” PSN videogame? It’s been awhile without updates, and since the movie is long gone, perhaps it was cancelled?


163

+ WickedCobra03 on January 30th, 2009 at 7:30 am said:

An alright update. I was actually more excited last week to get to try out Wipeout because there was no demo when the game came out!


164

+ TwinDad on January 30th, 2009 at 7:49 am said:

Thanks for the post on the updated store contents. Even though I played a copy of Savage Moon at Pax, no demo, no sale.

Sony has officially announced through the Blog that the PSP format is officially dead. They are not supporting it, neither should we.

Where are the PS1 classics? Yea, yea, yea, copyright issues, right? Thank you for Wild Arms and Suikoden1, at least you have something on there for the PS1. More RPG’s please.

+ kolobear on January 30th, 2009 at 8:19 am said:

Wow! Burnout Paradise for $20. That’s definitely something to consider! Great Deal…

When exactly did Sony “officially announce” that the PSP format is dead?


167

I feel cheated that the Ape Escape and Toro where removed from the uk ps store. Put Them back on sony!!!!!!!!!!!!!


168

+ TwinDad on January 30th, 2009 at 10:03 am said:

When for the last 2 months you don’t put PSP content on the store. You have told the public, your format is dead. It was partially sarcastic. I thought Jeff had posted that more new PSP UMD games would be downloadable from the PSN.


169

+ bigdaddyjane on January 30th, 2009 at 10:21 am said:

I still don’t see any good tv show update’s.Besides the FFXIII trailer,this is a bad update for the PSN store this week.


170

+ SalMoriarty on January 30th, 2009 at 10:41 am said:

I know this has already been said before, but open up the PSP the community and create a store like that of iPhone’s App Store. Follow the hackers’ lead, and let the crowd create software for it.


171

+ ENRICHOVEGA on January 30th, 2009 at 10:58 am said:

I already have the disc version of Burnout but would love to have it on my hard drive. Can anyone confirm if there is any loss in audio or visual quality between the two.

Thanks

Perhaps a quick glance in the dictionary at the word “officially”.

Great update! Got most of the LBP content, what I didn’t get yet I will soon. Also, will be getting both Savage Moon and Bejeweled 2 soon, though Bejeweled 2 should’ve been $5.99.

Keep the great updates coming!

does any one else think Bejeweled should B $5 tops tax included?


181

+ Mickeymac93 on January 31st, 2009 at 3:01 am said:

Still no real content for the PSP? No demo? No new game? Not even any new videos? Just more lame themes and…whatever the hell PULSE is? *sigh* whatever…

And no matter how low they drop the price, I’m still never getting Burnout Paradise…well, if I had a PS3, anyways. Played the demo on my 360 and it was horrible. Stopping in the middle of a race every 5 seconds to look at the map is not my idea of fun. Besides, Wipeout HD is already available for a decent price, and it’s (probably) a much better game, IMO.


182

+ Mickeymac93 on January 31st, 2009 at 3:04 am said:

Oh, and if Savage Moon is anything like Defense Grid, then I’d say it’s definitely worth a look. You can’t go wrong with Tower Defense games, unless you throw in some Final Fantasy characters into it.

ugh, lame. why even bother going through the trouble of getting a code from preordering if you’re just going to sell the costumes later?

and why just the god of war pack? Where’s Nariko, and the launch space suit?

Dear Sony,

I have a big problem with the german PS store: last week a friend showed me the english version of the PSN store and I was absolutely baffled by the features that seem to have been forgotten when creating the german version, like the little tags in the icon to let me know it’s a game, an add on or video, or the “All by title” sorting option…
And what’s more the content is quite different.
I can understand how some of the content differs due to licensing and rating issues, but, for example, the “ape escape” costume for LBP which was announced with all the other costumes simply is not available in the german store…
Could somebody please explain, why the german store seems to be so very underdeveloped and different from the english version ??
Oh, and why are there missing LBP costumes in the german store??

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 28, 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.
