Patapon 2: Pata-Price Confirmation

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda's Avatar + Posted by Chris Hinojosa-Miranda on Mar 06, 2009 // Producer

I’m no fan of numerology (although Pi kind of threw me on a loop for a while), but I must admit that if ever there was a number to be attached to, it would be 1999. That there number is ka-ching.

So what awesomeness is brought on by this magical 1999 number? Well for starters, it’s the price for the award wining Patapon 1.

Now for the second, and most important of all – it’s the price for Patapon 2! [Insert happy dance]

True this! On May 5th, for the pocket-friendly price of $19.99, you’ll be able to own your very own personal copy of Patapon 2. No longer will you drool over the promo videos and exclusive IGN previews, like the one below (thanks Jeff and Greg!).

So on Cinco de Mayo, get ready to party!!

Question:
Will Patapon2 be offered as a downloadable title from the PS-Store?

I must get another PSP so i can play this game, and pick up the first one again. It was so much fun playing. It was the only game i really liked playing on my PSP, which was why i sold my last one. But it looks like there is going to be some awesome PSP games coming out.

I’d like to reiterate “StupidTries” question: Will Patapon2 be offered as a downloadable title? I am trying to limit my purchase of PSP titles to downloadable games for the forseeable future.

1999 carries terrible memories with it though :( The loss of the 90′s and the beginning of, well, THAT guy…. Hopefully with THAT guy gone and this maybe 1999 will no longer seem so cursed… We can only hope -_

+ KingSmashy on March 6th, 2009 at 3:32 pm said:

The only way I can describe Patapon:
It’s like Final Fantasy, Dance Dance Revolution, and a Oompa-Loompa had a menage e trois baby. Day one buy for Pata 2.

…if you thought pi was bad check out phi!

When, if ever, will this be available on PSN? I really like to be able to buy games and download to PSP and have all of them ready all the time. Instead of popping in and out the UMD…

PS. For Sony and everyone with a psn account… i just got a message from a “sony official” claiming that if i go to playstationchallenge.tk that i will get a 20 dollar gift card to the psn store. Im 99.9% sure this is a scam!!!!!! So watch out for it! Dont let them get your credit card number!

I wanna get Patapon 2. Played the demo of Patapon 1 and liked it alot. However I wanna get Patapon 1 first :P

And I can’t find it at any retail stores…and I don’t like ordering retail games online. Any chance of a patapon 1 PSN Release?

The first was good, but I found the miracles hard to perform. I still can’t get them right and I always get knocked out of fever. Sometimes I play for 30 min. and get nowhere. Glad to hear that fever has a warning this time around, maybe I’ll finally get to perform some miracles.

    Yeah, we really paid attention to the feedback we got from the first one and I think you will find many of the new features very helpful in conquering the evil that stand between you and Earthend.

Reasonably priced AND on disc.

I don’t understand why you can’t get these things so exactly right every time Sony.

Sold.

    Ad Hoc.

    (so you can see your homies\’ faces cringe trying to stay in rhythm. LOL)

    It has Gameshare too so you can play with people who don\’t have the disk.

Thanks Sony, and remember, what the PSP needs is good ORIGINAL games…and Tetris.

HOT SHOTS GOLF (to Chris Hinojosa-Miranda)

Chris, we need your help with the online tournament scheduling. It’s been terrible and gotten worse. For a few weeks the official G0 tournaments used all 8 courses; now they’re back down to half that. We’re getting less than 2 tourneys per hour for G0 (out of 40 that are scheduled every hour). Most of the tourneys are rain, too. Minna No Golf 5 has sunny tourneys, 9 hole tourneys, uses all 8 courses, fun setups like wind display off, etc.

Please ask someone to adjust the scheduling algorithm and also provide more of the lobby avatar prizes that Minna has. Players are starting to play Minna instead and purchasing DLC from SCEJ instead of SCEA. Please don’t consider the official SCEA HSG forum as indicative of the interest in this great game. We have hundreds of loyal players at http://www.hotshotsgolf.com, but we’re starting to lose many of them to Minna and other games. Help!

+ Korlithiel on March 6th, 2009 at 6:27 pm said:

And still no pause button. I guess I will do like I did with the first, wait to find a copy that’s used so I can at least get it cheaper.

Chris…

I NEED this on PSN. I don’t want a disk; I want the game on my memory stick where nothing can happen to it. My Patapon UMD was decimated by my godson, and I don’t want to see that happen with Patapon 2.

For those of you that might be thinking “just keep it out of his reach,” you are obviously unaware that one and a half year old boys have magic powers, and the only location that is “out of reach” to them is on the moon.

@41
Well game share makes up for the lack of online. I don’t know what it’s like in Japan, but here I have a hard enough time finding other people with psps much less the same games as me, so ad-hoc by itself is just about a worthless feature. (I’m looking at you monster hunter series!)

    I\’m sure it can be a challenge, although the sales of the PSP is going pretty strong so we know folks are out there. Where are you at? This blog is a perfect place to recruit some fellow PSP soldiers!

+ Midgetguy on March 6th, 2009 at 8:09 pm said:

I think all PSP games should be at this price… It would definately increase game sales!

It seems like when games are only 20 dollars, they’re worth more quality wise!

I mean, Locoroco 2, Patapon 2, Buzz!… it just seems like we get more higher quality games with the value prices! :)

But hey, I’m fine with that!!!! lol

This is GREAT news, and I’m glad to hear that Patapon 2 is continuing this trend!
