From the UK… I gotta say that everyone whos moaning to Grace/SCEA about “no PS1 classics this week” should try the EU store… we get none :/

Seriously, over what? The past few months you lucky guys & girls in the US have had:

Oddworld Abes Oddysey
Oddworld Abes Exodus
Metal Gear Solid
Pandemonium
Medal of Honour
Medal of Honour Underground
Um Jammer Lammy
Silent Hill
Final Fantsy Tactics
Resident Evil 1 Directors cut
Tomb Raider 1/2/3/4 (all of which are british games, and even we don’t have them on the UK store)

We got: Little Mermaid & A Bugs Life… fun! o.o

Yeah :/ You got it good on the US PSN! Give them a break hahaha! I’d love the content the US store gets xD

+ TwinDad on October 30th, 2009 at 8:01 am said:

And we love the content the Japanese store gets. It’s all about perspective.

Now. Little Mermaid wasn’t all that bad and we have had our share of stinkers.

Okay update. PES10 demo will download. Keep the demos coming, it’s the greatest thing about PSN Store. Well aside from pixel Junk :)


154

+ MadmanButter on October 30th, 2009 at 8:11 am said:

We want what the Jap store has too though. and the US doesn’t get half as many stinkers as the EU store has. We have practically every game disney ever released on PS1 :P

Now thats bad haha!

I agree its about perspective. But you gotta admit. Its not a bad haul, considering the stuff the US store has been getting lately. And when compared to the EU store.

It just baffles me, the way people moan sometimes. And they forgot how far behind some other stores are in comparison (our store xD)


155

+ TwinDad on October 30th, 2009 at 8:17 am said:

I admit that allot of the folks here are just here to stink on the Sony parade and complain. We are undeniably better of then the EU store.

I will never forget the travesty that is the EU store. But you did get a few games before we did. I know it still doesn’t make up for the Disney games.

uhm grace?? is it possible to get dave mirra freestyle bike as ps1 classic. I know theres alot to do when making ps1 classic tranfer-able.. And i can plese get the 2k10 guy back onthe blog.. i have words 4 him and his demo he gave us… ty 4 your time


157

+ MadmanButter on October 30th, 2009 at 8:58 am said:

@TwinDad

Yeah, we do get a few games in advance. Don’t know how we managed that though! xD Trine being the main one. We got a demo of it this week too. Which I saw the US didn’t. Which is off imo… the US is an enormous market for the game. I’d definitely recommend you try it out off the EU store if you have an account though, if you’re thinking of purchasing the game. It’s great! :D

The EU and PS1 classics is a pain though. It’s understandable things take longer for us in the EU. But one of the problems is, we rarely get anything to make up for the badder games that get put up. I think over the past 4 months, it’s just been Disney & a few other games (Creatures 3, James Pond haha!) It wouldn’t be so bad if a good classic was thrown in now and then.

I’d buy them of the US store. But it would mean I’d have to keep assigning my PSP to whichever accont I needed.

Ah well. Can’t be helped :P

wow…playstation store is a real drag. the psp go has no headline psp games available. whats the deal man?!? its bad enough the go is $250 bucks but games that would be excellent to play are not available! what the hell man!?! for real, no dissidia, no tekken 5 DA or 6 for the psp!?! what was the point for the go? at this point the go and the psn are stale…just a waste of cash. i honestly had high hopes for this thing.

Any word on the new Zen Pinball table(s) that were dated?

Also, please add better quality audio to the new tables. Lossless would be preferred, 24-bit would be a bonus.

Speaking of audio quality, I gotta say that the quality of the music in Trine has been pretty underwhelming. For a $20 game, I was expecting some aspect of it to be HD. It’s not 1080p, and it sounds like 16-bit lossy audio. Please update the audio assets to be lossless in the upcoming patch.

Infernal Pool description wrong. The Playstation Store describes the game as being in 1080p with 60 fps, but it won’t display in 1080p. When I go into the display settings and uncheck 720p and 1080i, it will only display in 480p.

ok, I got the South Park dynamic theme just to have something else to switch between with the LBP dynamic which I LOVE, but now I feel a bit of buyer’s remorse… its actions are awesome and I love how it’s totally random, but the voice clips are annoying as hell!!! Can you please give us a way to turn off theme’s sounds on a future update? I felt the same way about the Joker theme. Lots of the themes are awesome, but I refuse to use them because I HATE hearing the irritating and ungodly repetitive sound effects they employ. PLEASE allow us to turn that crap off!!! Going back to my NOT-ANNOYING LBP theme until things change. Thanks for taking my $3 and proceeding to aurally assault me every time I push a button. To quote Eric and the theme: “screw you guys, I’m goin’ home”

You guys need to sort out the process of releasing games worldwide. GTA: Chinatown Wars was one of the reasons I bought the PSP Go for, and I still don’t see it on the store here. And now there’s Megaman, but that’s not available either. Please fix this and get these games out to everyone.

When is Playstation Network going to put better games on the network? I like to buy games from the network because it’s easier to control and if you want a game it could be there. And I’m lazy and don’t feel like getting up to put the disc in. I think that if Playstation Network put more games on the server then they would get more business.

No PS1 classics? I assume that I should stop expecting Xenogears on the U.S. PSN store. I guess that the Oddworld games from last week will make up for this week for me.

+ Golgosquall on November 1st, 2009 at 6:57 pm said:

I realize this may not get noticed, but I just have a question for possible future PSOne Classics.

Does anyone know if the US store will be getting gems such as Breath of Fire 3 or Saga Frontier?
I know the Japanese store already has Saga and the game didn’t exactly sell well over here in the States, but I loved the game and anyone I know who has played it loved it as well and think it would be a great addition to the catalog.

Nonetheless, good update this week, unfortunately it just has me yearning for a PS3 more and I still can’t afford one (poor college student). Keep up the good work Sony!

Hey Sony,
I got very, very disappointed, Sony.

If the so-called “PsOne Classics” is not including a Chessmaster, any version of Resident Evil, a Tekken II at least, Jackie Chan’s Stuntmaster, Nightmare Creatures, Shadow of Darkness, i really wonder how you can call it “PsOne Classics”?
Oh, yeah, we really do have some very classic barbie-baby-styled games.
Sony, you took PS2 backwards compatibility from us, you don’t care about happiness of our good old days PsOne games, What is happening to you?
Look at the number of the PsOne games on an European PSN Store! What a joke. Just some barbie-baby child games.
Very disappointed…
A very very old Sony Playstation Fan.(soon to be ‘an ex-Fan’)
