Great update, Buzz will be good for the family, and really enjoy the Pulse episodes. Too bad PS3 didn’t get Peggle the same time as 360. Never heard about it before, but tried the Demo last night and found it really fun.

You know what the PSN really needs? A version of the store that’s identical to the PS3 store that we can access through a web browser. Then we could purchase items from a computer and then add those items to a download queue so that they will automatically start downloading as soon as we turn on our PS3s. Make it happen sony!!

Also, great update. It’s good to see more than just Rockband songs each Thursday.

@43 its out in the jp store and the demo is in english and japanese depending on the system language settings. hpe square-enix release the psn version soon if the full japanese version doese the same thing then no translation need because it has already been done.

@63…um…out of the 3 console choices out there I’d say SONY is better than the other 2 but that is just my opinion.

@70 … yep…don’t have wifi at work so the PSP is a no go for that…I’ve heard they will be spreading some functionality to cell phones for this so I assume it would be accesible by PC to order up some content too..

Patapon video does not work on my PSP.
I have the latest firmware and it says Unsupported Data when I go to the video tab on my PSP.
I have an original “fat” PSP but this should not make a difference.

I’ve been waiting for a looooooooong time to spend my $$$ on Resident Evil 1-3 but I got sick of waiting & just picked up a used GameCube for $20 along with RE0, REmake, 2, & 3 for it.

Sorry Sony, you would have had my $$$ but you’re too late.

Finally a decent update! Every week, I see the RB2 and GH:WT songs and I’m disappointed. This week (FINALLY!) both have released pretty good songs that I will definately buy.

Decents demos… Red Baron and Astro Tripper too. Very nice.

I’m not entirely up-to-date on PS3 news though… Can someone tell me why no more LBP content? Is it just a lull or permanent?


94

+ Skant on March 12th, 2009 at 5:16 pm said:

Electronic Arts is totally out of control with DLC pricing. I am far from a frugal person. I’m really not apt to complain about pricing. But $5 for a single car unlock is nothing short of highway robbery.

If Gran Turismo charged you that much per car, GT5 would cost around $5000. Think about that.

Electronic Arts is clearly exploring just how much they can gouge customers by withholding content that previously would have been on the original $60 game disc itself and then selling it for several times as much money as DLC.

I really don’t mind being nickel and dimed a little this way. I like the LBP stuff, for instance. But Electronic Arts is taking this price gouging much too far to the point where I feel like they are insulting us all by assuming we are suckers.

That they continue to do it implies that a lot of gamers must be, because someone’s buying them.

+ Axecution on March 12th, 2009 at 5:23 pm said:

Frekaing amazing update! Thanks guys. People are complaining about stupid things.

Fat Princess will come out when its done; The only reason you want PSX games is because the 360 has X-Box games. I bought 5 games that i remember being amazing back in the day. They aren’t anymore. End of story.; Just ignore people that say “First”. They are retarded… Retarded people exist… ; Bomberman Ultra will ALSO come out when it’s done. ; Rock Band/Guitar Hero songs have nothing to do with Sony. >.> Damn complainers.

Anyway, time to completely kill everything i just said by complaining!

- I want the InFamous trailer. :( lol. Pleeeeease? Next week? Pretty please? D:

…Pretty please with a cherry on top? o.o

+ mafecto on March 12th, 2009 at 5:25 pm said:

Hey, good update but where the F are the PS1 games and more importantly, why the hell aren’t there any PS2 games available for download? I understand you guys want people to buy the retail copies but you could be giving us some older titles for like $14.99 or something. You’re missing out on a gold mine, I’m telling you…
