I decided not to download the demo, is that a bad thing?

PS1 classics is what we want!

And demos… Hmm. Thanks for the update though!

wtf r u guys talking about! this is a GREAT update! tell me the last time we had 3 demos, a new psp game, a good amount of trailers, a lot of add ons (i only have rock band though), and a very good psp update! seriously! the psp update hasnt been this big in months! plus they put out an update for home today and theres always a little less when they update home too. ill admit, i do wish there was some more lbp stuff…but i can make it another week…i also love burnout…but what did they ever say they were going to still release…i havent heard anything except for the island…which isnt supposed to be out for a while…still…5/5 update…

Killzone 2 Strategy Videos ($5.99)

That seems very stupid. Would be better to get a solid paper one from gamestop, so I can use it while I play the game.

Also props on the idea. To bad you charged money for it. In the end someone will just make a blog on how they did it later on, for free.

+ ryanc08 on February 26th, 2009 at 4:41 pm said:

Alright update, i already have the KillZone 2 demo though, and i think 6 bucks for the guide is reasonable considering its 20 for a hard copy. But too bad i had the Hawx demo 2 weeks ago on my 360. But really with KillZone 2 in less then 24 hours, who cares about the update? Although LBP costumes woulda been nice…

+ OneFate on February 26th, 2009 at 4:42 pm said:

@44 How can you be happy about paying for something that should have been in the game in the first place? I’m just curious.

Sorry that was at 45 not 44.

Killzone 2 demo :D

i think i was the only one who didnt have it… good week. I cant believe people are complaining, lots of ad-ons, 3 demos, lots of videos, the free pulse thing and more stuff… great week.

another week, another skate 2 dlc pack -.-

Word to the wise on thise who haven’t played the killzone demo yet. Yes the controls will feel slugish and the layout may seem stupid. Trust me when I say you will get used to it and you may actually question the layouts of other games. Just keep playing and it won’t be an issue.

+ Jeigh on February 26th, 2009 at 4:47 pm said:

Geez! You want to be careful when throwing around spoilers like what the final battle of a game is!?

+ SDkngsht on February 26th, 2009 at 4:48 pm said:

the hell are some of you talking about? fail cause there’s no LBP or Burnout contect? what else could Burnout possibly give you that they haven’t already? wtf?

i agree there were some things promised that aren’t on the list. that’s reason to be a little curious and want an explanation. but rating this a 1?

there’s a Killzone 2 demo, MBL 09 Demo, PSP game, HAWKS demo, downloadable content for three other great games. wtf do you people want? i swear…some of you need to get a girlfriend or hobby cause if this is THAT disturbing to you then you have issues. lol.

Dark Mist/Fat Princess WHERE?

I am not buying a thing on PSN until I get DM!

Well I’m glad I’m not picking up KZ2 now. The minute I run into “Radec” I’ll be like “so this is who I’ll end up fighting”. Hopefully it’s obvious and not a twist in the plot. It’ll be pretty funny if it is a twist in the plot, because the ps blog out of all places spoiled it. Good job.

+ Moosehole on February 26th, 2009 at 5:03 pm said:

@78

There was also a time where there was no internet, and no video games, and no computers, and when Sony didn’t exist, and when dinosaurs ruled the earth.


83

+ Calendaros on February 26th, 2009 at 5:04 pm said:

While we continue to struggle to actually get a decent PSN game, the 360 is getting Virtual On Oratorio Tangram and Sam and Max. Clearly Sony’s priority is to nickel and dime us with useless guides and useless themes.

Lame update. What happened to Spring Fever?!?! It’s great that No Gravity made it from the homebrew scene to an actual commercial release, but where are the PS3 games?!?!?!

You could at least throw Dark Mist or something at us!

87

+ Ramage on February 26th, 2009 at 5:08 pm said:

@7

is the guide useful? does it replace the free youtube videos that will be up…wll probably by now thanks to the early releases in some areas?

Somehow I doubt it…can’t get much cheaper than free. Although if they brought the price down having an ‘official’ one might lure some people in.

Also…fairly lame update..whens the last time we saw a PS1 game?


88

+ jasoncps on February 26th, 2009 at 5:08 pm said:

Am I the only one who thinks that packs like the SF4 add on pack are way way too expensive?

$4 for new costumes is ridiculous.

And it’s not just Capcom’s fault, the other devs are doing the same thing.

DLC is just way too expensive to be impulse bought. Something like the SF4 costume pack should be fifty cents maximum.

+ solo013 on February 26th, 2009 at 5:09 pm said:

This update sucks
I was looking forward to the Killzone 2 LBP stuff, and hoping for another spring fever game, but the only good thing that happened was the temporary price drop of warhawk.

@61 No not really, the Japanese had to pay for those add-ons.

And if you’re talking about how they had some of these add-ons before the game actually came out here, then I agree that it sucks, but the Japanese like to have stuff at their store before other countries.

I have no qualms with paying for these, it just keeps on adding to the already massive game world that NIS made. This is also incentive to get all the other DLC to make its way here. Although, I wonder what the update is? I’m downloading it as I type this, and am very curious as to what the new update for it is…?
