probably the worst PSN update of 2009. I cant ever imagine a week when i didnt want to download ONE item.

Well, i guess its not sony’s fault that so many developers dont wanna put demoes on PSN… oh wait, yeah it is haha

@103.

You’re an ignorant idiot. There arent any demos coming for both XBL or PSN this week.

Stop being such a smart aleck and GTFO.


107

+ borntowheel on March 26th, 2009 at 3:49 pm said:

@106 – you’re the one showing ignorance. XBL had the Metallica demo this week. As long as Sony charges publishers for bandwidth PSN will continue to have far fewer demos than XBL. In my case, that means most of my money will go to XBL because I refuse to buy downloadable games without a demo.


108

+ LordChocoSlime on March 26th, 2009 at 3:51 pm said:

I just found and downloaded a demo for the PC version of Platypus at a site called Retro64. I’ll try it out whenever I get the chance and list the web address of that site in case anyone else wants to try out that PC demo of this game.

@106

You’re the ignorant one. Multiplat Publishers will hesitate to put demoes on PSN because they are charged. Any multiplat game will appear first on XBL in the hopes that any multi console owner will dl it for 360 and not PS3.

RE5, Wheelman, LoW etc,, were all released a week or more before on XBL. We havent even gotten metallica GH demo


114

+ nov2rem on March 26th, 2009 at 4:15 pm said:

Please release PSone classics please. Street Fighter Alpha 3, Resident Evil 1,2,3, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Einhander, Driver, etc. I am dissapointed and shocked that there hasn’t been a single PSone game released on the U.S. PSN in 2009.

Lucky bastards dont complain. My motherboard on my ps3 fried Saturday to my great dismay. The “yellow light of death” happened during a game of Flower. Aah well im putting hours into all the PSP which was collecting dust anyway. This brings me to my point: My PSP can remote play my PS3, why cant my PS3 remote play my PSP? I have the video out cable but my couch is 15 feet from my TV and its not “Streamlined” like the rest of my Playstation experience. If its possible I’d love to see this integrated in the future. This being my first comment I DEMAND A REPLY!!!! lol.

nice update, hopefully psp dl games will take off and ps1 games will start to appear, iphone/iphod touch is getting some very good games, and if sony doesnt hurry and push for psp dl games soon, it will be once again behind and never catch up

Why is Worms $13, it’s a bloody old game, on top of that it’s cheaper on the 360, definitely not buying at a higher price for absolutely no reason. Team 17, your really riding worms into the ground, things been around since ps1 (earlier on the pc) and you still have the cojones to charge that much for it…. Shame on your lazy brit bumms!

Or type in “sony charge for free dlc” and read the 122 links about it.

Hey, im glad sony charges the publishers and not US.. but it kinda sucks when XBL will get everything before us

Thanks for the update, though I’m disappointed that there’s no demo for Burn Zombie Burn. Hopefully in the coming weeks, that will be addressed for the less financially impulsive among us?

And not to be like “that”, but where is Bomberman Ultra? I’m seriously chomping at the bit over that game and I heard it was coming out in early March… any news as to that would be very much appreciated.

I heard that Japan’s getting a Katamari game, by the way! I hope it comes to NA, though I’ll be happy to import it if I REALLY have to. Thanks Mr. Takahashi!

Alright, everyone say it with me – one, two, three… GIVE US PS1 GAMES!! I wonder if SCEA has ever heard the saying “the customer is always right.” Apparently not because about a third of the posts here are saying the same thing: more PS1 games. Not Worms, not Watchmen, and definitely not Zuma. All I can say is I am very disappointed at this blatant disregard for your loyal customers. Just remember who pays your bills! :)

+ mafecto on March 26th, 2009 at 9:06 pm said:

We need PS2 games on the store, as well as some older PSP games ready for download and play on PS3. There is no excuse for not having at least every first party piece of software across PS1, PS2 and PSP ready for digital download.

Also, downloaded Worms, a little better than the XBL version with some added features, but it crashed my PS3 twice and my PS3 NEVER crashes (40 gig, Nov. 2007).

No FW 2.70 is a huge bummer, but I blame myself for believing the internet hype.

SONY still rules.

Peace!
