Today is Playstation’s 15th birthday, so you would think that today would be pretty awesome for PS3 and PSP owners. I honestly was expecting all kinds of wallpapers and stuff celebrating this, and maybe even a free game or two. But I should have known that this wouldn’t have happened. I mean, they didn’t even mention it anywhere in the update. Figures. :(

@Nynja

Ah, I hear ya. I played the PSP version and it was nice to have extra content/job classes. Yeah, sony and 3rd party developers (who also have to play a part in preparing games for digital dload) should really pick up the pace.

@Nightblade777

Wow, good point, I read about that on Engadget, but they should definitely have more games out considering today’s playstation’s 15th anniversary 0_0; …. at least some more classics or something.

Well, there were some rumors about a team from Sony tweaking Bayonetta, in order to match X360 version. I`ll download the new demo, and compare it with Japanese version, and see if there are any differences on framerate and overall graphics.

Exactly. You would think there would be numerous PS classics released today. Maybe Playstation forgot its own birthday. XD

This comment is for Grace. When will the store be seeing more of those awesome “It does only everything” commercials with Kevin Butler? Those commercials are hilarious and I already have the first four commercials downloaded. I would like to see the other ones put up for download as well. Thanks!!! Keep up the great work!!

Seriously, when are we going to see screen shots in the preview panel in the store for every single game like it is on the Japanese PSN store? I lost count of how many times I’d pass up buying a game because I don’t know if the game is going to appeal to me aesthetically. Not to mention, a lot of times the descriptions are so uninformative without screen shots I wouldn’t even consider buying it.

*sigh* Was kind of hoping that Mega Man Powered Up was going to show this week. Only game I am missing since switching to the Go. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about the system at all; I would just like to have my fav game on it.

Still waiting for the ability to block users on this blog like we can block users on the PSN. Please Grace, for the love of the PSN let us hide all the comments by these whiny brats so we only see comments by those who realize the world doesn’t revolve around them. I’d sacrifice a month of store updates if I never have to see some of these posters again.

thanks.

Not a bad update. Why isnt SCEA promoting the PSP go with a free game download of either Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines, Gran Turismo, or MotorStorm: Artic Edge like SCEE is doing?? They are giving it to people who have already bought the go or are getting it for the holidays, SCEA should jump on board!!

I don’t even know why I’m posting this because I’m sure it won’t make a difference, but here I am anyway.

Reading some of these posts, I honestly think its sad. PSP Go owners are limited to a small selection of games that customers are accustomed to getting a handful made available each Thursday. Meanwhile regular PSP owners have the full library available now with the option to purchase downloadable games. This is simply disappointing. All PSP games should have been made available for download by release of the PSP Go or shortly after. Not the way it’s being handled now.

…..


143

+ Nynja on December 3rd, 2009 at 8:24 pm said:

…continued from post 143…

Rumor says Sony is working on a UMD transfer system for PSP Go owners – well, forget it. I’m not spending any more money on the PSP Go. It is already over priced with too little games. Didn’t Sony learn this lesson already with the PS3 launch? I would of thought so.

I no longer see a benefit of owning the PSP Go. Tomorrow I trade it in. I’m not going to sit around and wait for SCEA to release a few PSP games each week. That is simply not satisfactory.

Tired of this… why has Sony been letting me down so much lately? Sometimes it feels like as they don’t listen anymore – now that they are “popular” again. I miss the Sony of yesterday, when they are struggling for our attention.

+ Zarxce on December 3rd, 2009 at 9:47 pm said:

Meh, not a terrible update as everyone says. RE3 is awesome and I was happy to be playing the Bayonetta demo finally.

More PS1 classics would be great. Especially the RPGs. Sure, more Final Fantasies would be nice, but don’t forget games like

Parasite Eve 1 and 2
Xenogears
Tales of Destiny 1 and 2
Tales of Eternia
Persona 2
Alundra
Brave Fencer Musashi
Grandia
Jade Cocoon
Breath of Fire I-IV
Legend of Legaia
Legend of Dragoon
Saga Frontier 1 and 2
Thousand Arms
Vagrant Story
Chrono Cross
Legend of Mana

I think Lunar is getting ported to the PSP so that probably won’t happen, same with Star Ocean 2 since that’s already out.

These are just the ramblings of a die hard RPG fan and probably won’t be read by anyone…but a gamer can still dream *sighs*
