I’ve really been disappointed with the psp content ever since the launch date. I’d like to have games when they launch and haven’t even heard if we’ll get the new Yugioh and Naruto Shippuuden releases. All I need to know is if we’ll get a large or massive update for the psp go soon because I think if there isn’t one before christmas I’ll just pawn it or sale it…

WHAT HAPPENED to the rest of the UMD game back catalog? There are still hundreds of games to add. Will we ever see an older UMD game get added ever again?

Just want to say nice job on saying the COD classic is available in French for us Canadian users. English is my first language, so I’d buy that one, but those of us that have French as their first language probably apprectiate very much. Thank you SCEA!

@ElektroDragon

That really dpends on whether the 3rd Party developers want to port them over. I expect all of Sony’s game to be D/L soon. But any other titles and you’ll have to take it up with the devloper.


56

+ Mikaa1701 on December 3rd, 2009 at 3:47 pm said:

Wow. Other than Call of Duty (which is not a bad upload), little to nothing.

Sony, take a page from Nintendo’s online store: don’t upload ALL of a given series (ie, Command and Conquer) within a time frame; spread it out and give other games a chance.

Where are all the downloadable versions of UMD PSP games? I recently purchased the PSP Go and (unfortunately) need to repurchase many of my games. The games that I have been waiting on are still now where to be found. Some of them;

Final Fantasy I
Final Fantasy II
Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core

Can we get an ETA on back titles? A complete list of when these games will be available would be nice.

If none of these games will be available, then I need to return the GO and get my old PSP back. How can anyone at Sony expect the GO to do well with such a limited library?

Also, anyone know if the French Cod classic supports English subtitles? I want to work on being more fluent in French, but I want to at least be able to understand what they’re saying in my second playthrough.

RE3…nice.

Can we please get some Uncharted 2 themes and wallpapers that don’t have Toyota cars and branding all over? Come on, Sony and Naughty Dog. It’s your biggest game this year, and you can’t even give us some themes and wallpapers without Toyota all over them.

Any idea when Call of Duty Classic will be available on Amazon’s PSN store?

Good job Sony! Keep up the good work!

Not to complain on something really minor but where are the new avatars? I want to see more dynamic themes also but I’m curious on new avatars. I don’t know about the rest of the PS3 gamers out there but I want a new avatar.

Well I have faith that you will deliver Sony, the real question is WHEN?

Nonetheless, keep up the good work Sony!


67

+ Moosehole on December 3rd, 2009 at 4:01 pm said:

STILL no avatars… Let me guess… You’re going to add premium avatars only for people who upgrade to the new subscription based PSN, right?

Anyway, I would love to see Diablo released as a PS One Classic.

I have to admit that this caught my eye in a weird way too. Not really sure why, though. You would think that after GTA and God of War, nothing would be “too adult” but there’s a part of me that still thinks some things could be scaled back. I’m pretty sure no one is naked in the themes, but it might be time for a “mature” or “adults only” section in the PSN store.


69

+ DiscoJer on December 3rd, 2009 at 4:10 pm said:

Hey Sony, don’t forget you have this device called the “PSP”. It would be nice to see things for it, ya know.

Okay, technically it got 2 shovelware games from the EU, 1 retail release and 4 themes. But it’s got a brilliant library that is mostly unavailable online, which is a major shame.

I just visited The European PlayStation Network looking for the Van Helen Demo seeing as how they just took it down without an explanation. AND i noticed The rest of the Uncharted EYE OF THE INDRA episodes. 1-4. Would some please be kind enough and give me some sort of explanation on why this isnt on the US yet? Isnt Naughty Dog located in the USA? I would assume the episodes would be released here in the USA first. Apparently i was wrong.

@RyuPower

What Disgaea 2 issue are you talking about?

Also, I have a PSPGo and have to say that the GTA:Liberty City game runs so poorly frame rate wise that I would love to get a refund. It’s much worse than the UMD version which was fine. The frame rate is poor during any amount of movement (ex. running). From what I read it is happening to digital dloads whether they’re on the Go or not.

I strongly recommend that anyone else considering this purchase check out forums that discuss how this bug has been logged to rockstar/sony. I bet you won’t want to purchase it if they don’t patch it ;)

hey Grace got a quick question, i emailed Bandai Namco about Digimon World’s 1-3 coming to the playstation Store, is there anyway since you run the update log on the PSStore, can talk to Bandai about getting this on the playstation Store, these games were playstation 1 exclusive, so it would be nice to relive the events on file island and would make a great addition for us to take on the go, on our PSPs and relive them on PS3. Thanks! Hope this gets read!
