Hey, everyone. It’s time again for the weekly PlayStation Store update.

Get the game now for $29.99 (reg. price: $39.99), with bundles priced at $10.99 each (reg. price: $14.99 each). But hurry, these prices only last for two weeks!

+ PsyTruck on May 7th, 2009 at 3:53 pm said:

Kinda cool I guess. PSN has been kinda sucking as of late, so the PS1 updates are nice. Why is Patapon $20 though? Shouldn’t it be a bit less since there’s no UMD.

Here’s hoping you guys release more PS1 games out on PSN.

Geez, whenever I finally pick up Disgaea 3 I’m going to pay more in DLC then I am for a full priced game… crazy.

+ ExPresident on May 7th, 2009 at 3:55 pm said:

Gonna concur with the Puzzle game price. $20 is outrageous. For users, don’t buy it. No sales and they will lower the price, if even for a weekend, to make some money and increase interest. Use your buying power to make them do what we want with prices.

Secondly, also concur with the Patapon 2 price. Make it $15 since you aren’t doing UMD’s.

P.S. As with my previous comment:

XCOM UFO DEFENSE!!!

Sony seriously, you gotta release this as PSOne/PSP title. The original PS1 disc goes for $75 on Ebay :( There’s interest!!!

Pursuit Force is a fantastic game.. but charging that much for such an old title? I would think putting it at a lower price-point would encourage more impulse buys.

Nice to see that the PS1 games are finally being released. Nothing that I really wanted but still nice to see. Patapon 2 is great to see out there along with the LBP add on.

Going to check out that savage moon demo and see if that game is really worth all of the hype anyone and everyone said it was.
