So what is the price on the MLB themes?

Nice Update.

note:
I personally could care less about the lack of PS1 games on the store, but I really can not believe that Sony hasn’t released more of them. Every update people complain about it,and I am sure tons of money would be raked in if more PS1 games were released.

I know there is a lot of licensing issues and red tape that needs to be cut, but damn! There is a HUGE library of PS1 games out there that people are dying to give you money for. Is there some other reason behind the lack of PS1 games or does Sony just not like easy money? I don’t get it.

It would be nice to have a resistance 2 demo. well atleast I haven’t spotted one yet.

And since I don’t got no credit card I can’t buy anything from the store anyway.

And I’m also quietly waiting for the new platinum games and for the price of R2 to drop >.> and for PSN cards in europe.

Really SCEE needs someone new to lead them >.> someone like SCEA :B

I have to say for these past few weekly updates there has been nothing that stands out for me as must get. It’s been pretty “meh” all this time. Hopefully Fat Princess will come out soon enough and change that.

Ok, seriously, how many of you will play PS1 games even if they come on PSN?I doubt that every single one of you will rush to the PSN store and buy every new ps1 release that they come out with..

What we should be begging is PS2 games. That would be PERFECT.

+ Dardantuan on March 26th, 2009 at 3:33 pm said:

Worms?! Freaking awesome. I had no idea that it was coming to the PSN. I already own the 360 version, but I just may download it to have twice the amount of opponents to play online.

[This post ONLY refers to this week's PS Store for PSP Update.]

This update seems to be pretty decent and a bit early as well. Though I don’t know anything about that Platypus game, it sounds interesting since I like side-scrolling. I just wish that a demo of the game was also available so I can try it out before I consider buying it. Anyhow, thanks for the update.
