Some advice for Sony America, give us PS1 Classics please!! People are getting unhappy…most people don’t care about new themes that cost money….if you are listening to the majority of your fans, then you would know this!!! Atleast give us an idea of when we can expect them….are you even working on getting any in the store this year?? Let us….the fans of your product know what is going on….

Two weeks in a row, the store update has been a tad lacking. Oh well, there’s always next week.

as far as psnetwork ps1 games i was wondering if they are ever gonna have a final fantasy 7 ps1 download on the ps store?

NO PS1 GAMES….ONCE AGAIN


58

+ Jikkle on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:

I’m sure glad the US store is keeping pace with the Japanese store when it comes to releasing PS1 games!

I’m sure being able to play RE 1 and 2, MGS, Xenogears, Final Fantasy 7, and Grandia is right around the corner for us people outside of Japan right?


59

+ Schmeidenkamp on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:

@53 well glad to see that you are happy, but personally I could care less about the psp crap. I owned a psp for about a year when they first came out, never played it, ebayed it

Wow, lots of people looking for PSN and PSOne games… yet Sony of America continues to NOT deliver. Typical.

+ mastrofallz on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:10 pm said:

My IQ just dropped by 20 points.The PS1 begging and the “Sony failing”is really pissing me off. There are enough PS1 games on the store, and even if they did come out with PS1 games, I doubt that anyone of you saying that Sony “fails hard” would buy that PS1 game. Just shut up and enjoy your PS3 GAMES.

Grace why cant you guys add the increment of $1 to the add funds options???? It frustrating to be cents away from a purchase and not be able to buy it b/c I’m a couple of cents short from the $5 option. Can you guys do something about this, Please???????????


63

+ Demonhunter84 on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:11 pm said:

Looking foward to downloading the Creater Pack for LBP today. Seems nice to have something like that when creating levels for free. Are there any plans for a PSN sale anytime soon? I know Europe got one a few weeks ago for the one year anniversary of PSN that launched in Europe and they had alot of the older PSN games for sale. Would be nice to see something like that over here.


64

+ rbanke on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:12 pm said:

@Jezer29, its likley because of credit card processing fees that Sony incurs when you add funds. Alot of business’s have minimum ammounts that they will charge to a credit card.

Why does Galactrix keep getting delayed? Why no Peggle? It’s Earth Day this week and no Trash Compactor or whatever that game was? Well, at least there’s some PS1 titles, oh wait…


67

+ Korlithiel on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:13 pm said:

At first I was thinking this wasn’t a bad week for the PSP, seeing another PSP title released for download. And then as I went over the rest of it, again noted the costly themes.

I lament the lack of Playstation games or any decent new content this week, so hopefully we see something better next week (and eventually that we get to download videos straight to our PSP’s).

+ Gunwing on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:13 pm said:

@52:

They are PSone games! Not PSX! The PSX was a Sony System that only launched in Japan and failed big time! It was pulled from the market in less then 6 months!

The PSone was released as a result featureing better Memory cards, Rumble Controllers (Made Standard on the PSone BTW) A set of bumpers: The orignal PS system had no bumpers at all, these were added in the PSone revision) A better and faster CPU: Supported full32 bit color over 16 bit of the older system, more Internal Memory: 800MBs over the older 425MBs. Also it was Smaller and had a much easyer to open disk tray, as well as an S-Vido cable, and full Stero sound support: The PS system only had right and left chanel Mono sound support.

Really? Not 1 PSN game? Thats a real disappointment. I’ve purchased every PSN game for the past 3 months regardless of if I liked it or not. I want to support this network.

Where will my $ go Sony? Most DLC I don’t own the disc games for!

I dont get why developers post “free DLC”, like LBP, UTIII, Hot Shots Golf, and High Velocity Bowling…why not add it in a patch so that everyone gets these tools mandatory? Instead a ton of people are going to miss out on these features because they didn’t bother to look in the store.


74

+ Schmeidenkamp on April 23rd, 2009 at 3:15 pm said:

Sorry one more rant,

1. themes that cost money and suck at the same time are pointless.
2. Im sick of having these same lame @$$ avatars for going on 3 years now
3. Video rentals and the price to download and ‘own’ a movie is astronomical.

and agreed and the guy who wants smaller increments to add money into you wallet

I just read all the comments and I’m very MAD at some of you. Last week you guys wanted demos and now you got demos. Then now, you are complaining about how there’s no new games this week. That’s all you people do? Complain? Good god, you guys just cant be pleased.. The stuff you guys want will come when the time’s right. Be grateful for once

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

It’s nice seeing the PSP getting some new PS Store content this week (as opposed to last week’s repeat of mid-late October ’08 drought). I’ll probably tryout those Patapon 2 trailers, but I’ll avoid that Ratchet & Clank game since I was never interested in that series. Thanks and hopefully the PS Store for PSP updates will get better soon especially since the PSP has to contend with both the iPod Touch AND DSi.

What’s up with the “Premium” themes? They’re everything BUT premium.. they all look horrible and they’re not worth the price of admission. These themes should be free.. not to mention contrary to popular belief.. gamers arent all nerds who enjoy looking at anime girls.. what a joke..

Argh! I’ve been waiting 6 months for the Nariko LBP costume, buying up all the less-important LBP DLC, and my wallet is literally empty this week! Come on payday…

Nice to see another PSP game going up for download. Put Resistance: Retribution up, please! If you put Phantasy Star Portable up, I’ll buy it again just to save my battery and loading times- and I already bought a copy for myself and one for my friend.

Silent Hill on PS1 needs to go up ASAP, too. Europe got it a few weeks ago, so I’m sure it wouldn’t take much to get it on the US Store. PLEASE make it happen as soon as possible!

@76:

No matter what Sony puts up, people will find something to complain about. If they put up FFVII on the store, people will complain about when Resident Evil or Xenogears come out. If they put those games out, they’ll complain about no PSN games or demos. If they have an update that has all these things, trust me, they’ll find something else to complain about. That’s what most gamers do: complain.

As far as this update is concerned, I am stoked that Ratchet and Clank is available for the PSP. I just got my PSP a couple of days ago and I loved Ratchet and Clank on PS3. I am definitely buying this one as I want to purchase all of my games through the PSN store.
