+ Wolverine Demo (Expected)

+ Plenty of content.

- Stop mentioning Socom PSP or anything related. Its an ugly ugly side that Sony should stop bringing forward as /6 has forever tarnished me as a buyer and I will never purchase anything from them again.

@1 ROFLdrg

You come to the Playstation Blog to read up on news, yet you don’t go to other gaming websites? I find that odd. Anyway, if you’re referring to a Bionic Commando Demo, FYI: It’s an XBox360 exclusive, just like the MvC2 demo is a PS3 exclusive.

Anyway, I’m pretty happy with this update, as the majority of the commenters are too. A lil bit of everything for everyone! Good job Sony ^_^

Wow PS1 games it’s a miracle!

Quick question Patapon 2 was supposed to be on UMD for 20 dollars, since I was screwed out of a UMD why is it still 20 dollars? Shouldn’t it be less since there’s no UMD? If there’s no UMD your cutting cost by not making them, then why not cut us some cost?
