I wasn’t expecting much for the PSP this week (previous updates are to blame), so I was quite surprised to see a U.S. demo of Phantasy Star Portable available. Despite knowing very little Japanese, I had fun playing the Japanese demo months ago to the best of my ability. I’ll download this demo immediately as I eagerly await the full U.S. version. Thanks for the update.

this goes to all the people in the u.s. the killzone two demo is in the store but you need to have the game preorder at gamestop. but the demo does come out on the 26th one day before the full game does lol.. hope that help

P.S its short like 10 mins

+ stlthriot on February 5th, 2009 at 5:51 pm said:

Of all the Burnout content to have be paid for, it is the lame party pack. But I guess you could look at it this way: $9.99 for everything we have already got as well. :D

This is a solid update. Looking forward to Killzone 2!

good to see the MLB09 demo, though I’m sure it’ll be solid as usual.

+ BitRunner on February 5th, 2009 at 6:00 pm said:

Where are all those PSX titles that are supposedly coming?…

It’s very cool they brought in the Phantasy Star Portable Demo… they’d really do themselves some favors by making a PS3 version of Phantasy Star Universe though (or at least whatever the next game in the series is).

YES! PHANTASY STAR!!!

So the UK just got Lumines Supernova on the store for only 8.99£, which is somewhere around $11.50. So I am assuming this game will come down in price at some point soon…because it needs to be 9.99 like every other game like it. I want it but the price makes me not want it.


67

+ stanace on February 5th, 2009 at 6:08 pm said:

I just realized Front Mission 1st, Front Mission 2 AND Front Mission Alternative are all available on the JPN PSN store.

When are more PS1 titles going to be available in North America?


68

+ Lawr- on February 5th, 2009 at 6:12 pm said:

The Burnout Ultimate Bundle is labelled as “Add-on Content”. The label may confuse people who already own Burnout and think that this ultimate bundle also entitles them to the rest of the DLC offered by Criterion this year.

+ Midgetguy on February 5th, 2009 at 6:18 pm said:

GREAT UPDATE! Believe it or not, but I think that the locoroco 2 trailer was my favorite! It left me smiling long after I finished watching it! :)

I do have a question though… I’m having an issue with my PSP and its downloaded games and demos. According to my PSN account I already have five PSP’s activated on my PSN account. (My old PSP, my new PSP, my brothers old PSP, my brothers new PSP, and my friends PSP) But, my brothers friend wanted me to use my PSN account so he could play “Beats”. (He got the Blue madden PSP pack a while back, and used my account to get the game, since at the time he didn’t have a PSN account…) Anyways, while I was giving his Beats game to him I had to deactivate my PSP from my account… Well, that’s all done and everything, but now my PSP is deactivated and I can’t play my games like Beats, Everyday Shooter, or even the Locoroco 2 demo! :(

So, my question is: Is there an easier way to deactivate a PSP from my account without having to use a USB cable and the PSP I’m deactivating? I really wanna play my games again, but I can’t!!!! And, I my brothers friend doesn’t come by here often…

OMG, MLB 09!! Thank you!!

Wow @ the size of that thing, though. It’s bigger than an episode of Qore, LOL. It’ll take me about 5 hours to download it… :(

“This full version of the game offers online play, ACHIEVEMENTS…?”

Wow… really? I dont even know what to say

I’m on my 11th playthrough on the Killzone 2 demo!


73

+ John-Shooter on February 5th, 2009 at 6:27 pm said:

nice guys way to balance the demo to actual release ratio but im not a big sports fan but hell the RE:5 demo mixed with a little KZ2 will keep me busy for a while..

I was tryin to get over to a game store and get kz1 before 2 came out but im just gonna front the cash toward kz2.. cuz im not gonna have time to go back !!

+ rcmadiax on February 5th, 2009 at 6:37 pm said:

I just want to say Thank You to SEGA and Sony for getting together the Phantasy Star Demo. We PSP Owners need some more 3rd Party Demos. I like to try it before I buy it. Otherwise I wait til it goes bargin bin or get it on eBay for 80% Off. Please more PSP love, please!

So, where are the PSOne games?

Miss Chen, how about some accountability?

Mediocre update. only good thing is Burnout Party pack which is kind of disappointing.


80

+ thefjk on February 5th, 2009 at 6:51 pm said:

Awesome downloads this week, bought more than I’ve ever bought at once since I started using PSN! Killzone is sweet, NHL 3/3 is wicked and Burnout is speeding!

Keep the content rolling and damn, seriously… Killzone is awesome!


81

+ OddyOh on February 5th, 2009 at 6:58 pm said:

Sweet, I wasn’t expecting a demo of that NHL game…I’ll be picking it up regardless, but just in case it’s absolute crap, I’ll try the demo first. :)

+ rez33 on February 5th, 2009 at 7:28 pm said:

Pretty excited about the Burnout Paradise updates. And to think that we still have more cars and the island to look forward to this year! Great game.
I’m hoping to see Puzzle Quest Galactrix on the PS Store when it is released later this month. I’m still waiting for the official word on that. And some bug fixes for the original Puzzle Quest would be awesome, too!
Well, time to go play Burnout!

Yay for Burnout Paradise. Boo for LittleBigPlanet. they promised a free costume every week in their November 18 blog post and haven’t fulfilled it.

93

+ Lil_Mermaid_Girl on February 5th, 2009 at 8:02 pm said:

Since Hot Shots Golf is still being supported with add ons does this mean it will get a trophy patch?? I hope so! If it did and trophies were there for some of the add on stuff (characters or courses), I’d buy them.


94

+ Dan-I-Smith on February 5th, 2009 at 8:07 pm said:

I must agree with some of the people on the blog when they say more PS1 games please.

I’m also thinking maybe a nice detailed blog post on the process and/or progress on the whole PS1 library up to this date and the upcoming future.This is kind of about the lack of PSP content to me, I refuse to steal games and the release of PS1 games makes waiting on original and legacy titles a lot easier.

Just remember that we are all still hungry for PS1 games.

+ xRYANx84 on February 5th, 2009 at 8:10 pm said:

Are u serious!! when are we gonna get a good update. every week lbp planet updates i mean come one who cares what my sac boy is wearing.GET SOME PS1 GAMES. Come on sony suikoden 2, final fantasy, parasite eve etcc.. Sony u got some good old school games make them available for use or make a ps3 version u know suikoden 6 or parasite eve 3 for ps3 would be some really nice titles to come out one day.

+ Deathrock on February 5th, 2009 at 8:13 pm said:

How do I set the ps3 to still download while I use it to watch a movie? I still have not been able to figure that out or is even possible at this time , I just notice the download stops when i put a movie in and watch it.


97

+ GTAChuck on February 5th, 2009 at 8:23 pm said:

Sony. PLEASE add more PS1 games to the U.S. store PLEASE. Games that people truly want like Einhander, Final Fantasy, and Resident Evil just to name a few.

Just got NHL 3 on 3……DEFINITELY WORTH 10$ my buddy and I played online and with no rules and the ability to hit the goalie its amazing how easily you can get hooked on this game we couldve gone all night playing online!!! online play is smooth and they have trophies which is always kind of sorta cool….(sigh in the background) but the gameplay is exactly like the real game!


99

+ Brently4 on February 5th, 2009 at 8:29 pm said:

@95 why dont you just go and buy those old games and slide them right into your ps3…I have all the old Tony Hawk Pro Skater games and they work just as good AND they are cheaper to buy them in the real world and have the disc then to pay an extra 15$ (when they are usually 2-6$ bargain) granted final fantasy 7 you’ll be paying big bucks for, but anyways either way just go to some video game store and get em…i know i know that means you gotta get off your lazy butt and do something with your life BUT I believe in you ;-)
