Hmm… Yet another uninteresting week for me… At least there’s a lot of PSP games this time around… There’s still so many umd games missing on the psn… So much for my PSP Go.

Finally Trine is out, but then you go and shaft us by only putting the Uncharted comic on the Video Store.

I’m amazed no one’s mentioned the (apparently) digital-only release of Armored Core 3 Portable, and that no mention of this has been made in ANY online media.

I can’t imagine how an Armored Core game will work with only one analog stick (no, this isn’t a dig against the PSP, I could care about dual analog except for a game like THIS) but I’ll be very eager to see some reviews. And the thing’s only $15!

God, lemmings, Crimson Gem Saga, Trine, Half-minute Hero, Hammerin’ Hero. This update could cost me almost a hundred dollars if I don’t find some willpower.

@mixedkidbx / #77
Joel from Frozenbyte here – I figured I’d post quickly just to say that we aren’t blaming Sony for the delay on Trine. Sure, they could improve a few things to make the process faster for developers/publishers, and maybe they could’ve pushed the US release of Trine out a week or two earlier, but that wasn’t the point of the post really. I just wanted to help people understand why there have been such long delays in getting Trine to PSN. We made lots of mistakes on our own too and we take the responsibility for that – I think the important thing to remember is that the delays have not been intentional and we’re sorry there was so much confusion and no clear information. It’s been frustrating for us too (we know we’ve lost lots of sales and that’s definitely not what we’d want).

Anyhow, I hope this clears it up a bit. I’m very happy that Trine is finally out, though. We can’t wait to hear what people think. I hope everyone who buys the game really enjoys it too! :)

Off to bed now, it’s 04:00 AM over here now. Everyone have fun!

– Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine

One of the problems I have with legal digital downloads is that often the pricing structure is out of whack with what brick-and-mortar stores charge. There should be no way a digital download should cost the same or more than physical media, because cutting out the middleman alone should result in some savings. Storing a game on a server has some cost, for sure, but nowhere near as much as paying a factory to make and ship your games.

I’d like to hear Sony’s rationale for charging more for the same game digitally than in a brick-and-mortar store. Politics, perhaps?

You guys really need to regulate the time on these updates. We’re already two days behind the competition.
The Beatle Add On content should be listed in it’s own game category as it’s DLC only works for that game and NOT Rock Band.

BTW, what ever happened to Rat Race?

that’s an Ok update, I was going to buy the abe games, but at 10 dollars that’s a bit off, for 5.99 I would bite, but I don’t think that those games are in the same league as metal gear or castlevania SOTN. I’m assuming all the good zombie killing games are coming out next week, please have soul reaver released! And release more than two a week. (ps1 games that is).

But at least that’s twice as many as last week.

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

This is the second week in a row that SCEA surprised me with a larger than expected PS Store for PSP update. The PSP section updates for this October has proven to be way better than last October’s updates. And addition to seeing two more PSone Classics additions, it’s also great seeing a downloadable version of Riviera: The Promised Land (which means one less UMD game to track down on Amazon). Thanks for the big update.
