Grace,

Why is there still not a consistent PSN update time on Thursdays? We don’t care what the time is…we just would like it to be the same time every week. That makes it a lot easier for your customers.

Thank You

    It varies due to the amount and type of content we publish, and we try to update as soon as we can on Thursdays.

A sale, some fine PSP games, no PS1 classics worth considering and still horridly priced themes.

We’ve had much worse weeks, and this one looks like a fair bit of cash out of my pocket. I definitely clicked the wrong rating…

To be fair, I gave last week a 1, because a 0 wasn’t an option. This is a solid 2.

OR ITS RATING? Thanks :)

No avatars and no dynamic themes = Meh (I’m not interested in the future MAG dynamic themes either). We need White Knight Chronicles dynamic themes & avatars.

+ DiscoJer on January 21st, 2010 at 3:25 pm said:

Sigh. This whole minis thing has been a flop, huh? We can’t even get half the ones Europe has, even when they’ve already been rated by the ESRB. Sometimes for months, like that Dracula game, which I’ve been waiting for for ages.

Much thanks.

This is just as bad as last weeks. Championship Bass isn’t a classic. We need Tenchu 1 and 2 Driver 1 and 2 Dino Crisis 2 amongst others.

+ Rakis on January 21st, 2010 at 3:32 pm said:

The sale we’ve all known about now for 12 hours due to Amazon.com having updated their prices on those games in the pre-dawn hours.

Still befuddled as to why you folks at Sony can’t update at a set time nor update with more than 1-2 games per week (for all systems combined).

The manager of the PSN department should be ashamed of themselves and their complete lack of work ethic as far as getting games into gamers hands. Do they need to be reminded they work for a game company?

Give us games, because if you don’t, well, it’s your paycheck not mine.

It would have been a nice move for Konami (or Sony) to release Vandal Hearts 1 & 2 alongside with the new Westernized Vandal Hearts. Perhaps we can hope to see them in a few weeks.

I approve DJ Max Fever.

I am disappointed with the release of yet another mediocre PSOne Classic.

When will you guys release Suikoden 2? It’s already a year since Suikoden was released, and I don’t want to spend upwards of $100+ on Ebay just to play it again.

It is a little frustrating to see useless stuff like the ‘Banana Girl Hook-Ups Theme’ when we haven’t even gotten the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme that is up on the Japanese PSN store. All you guys have to do is release and I’ll buy it. Plain and simple. Free money. I realize that there might be issues to work out with Atlus, but I think they like money too.:P

Wow, what an amazing sale. Without custom soundtracks I wasn’t going to buy UNO even though I loved the demo last week, But for $4, Oh yea! I’ll buy it even without custom soundtracks (though I do still hope it gets a custom sountracks update(

I was holding off on Savage Moon for me PSP Go because I have it on PS3, but for $5? Buying it now.

I really have no interest in Critter Crunch, but I may even buy that for just $3.50

I may even get Zen Pinball later in the week. AMAZING SALE SONY!!!

I was hoping MYST for PSP would be on sale too. I want it, but $20 is just too much imo. Tetris needs to be dropped to like $3.99 as well. Again, I want it, but I can’t justify spending $7 on Tetris.

Now….BRING ON THE CRY BABIES and let the down-rating of the update begin!!! LOL, tools
