I am ,definitely, buying ZEN Pinball and Braid. Two amazing games that I thought were overpriced and waited to go on sale.

By the way, Critter Crunch was one of the best, most entertaining puzzle games I have played in a long time. Very few games make me want to play them to death nowadays and Critter Crunch was one of them. I really enjoyed completing everything on that game and multiplayer is top notch!

@ jelly_bean

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories came out on the PSN Tuesday lol.

+ Ramage on January 21st, 2010 at 3:44 pm said:

Woahoahoa! Braid on sale now? Glad I waited a little while.

Note to others BUY CRITTER CRUNCH it is an AMAZING game even for the original price.

I might have to pick up crystal defenders as well, we’ll see.

Thanks for the sale guys. You need to find more excuses for sales more often.

+ KVG88 on January 21st, 2010 at 3:45 pm said:

Hey – remember those things called minis that you can play on PS3/PSP – what ever happened to those? Keep them coming. There’s one on the European PSN called Dracua that looks awesome, I’d sure pay for it.


55

+ spunnups on January 21st, 2010 at 3:49 pm said:

Nice Update. Can we please have some more FREE Avatars, X-Game Voice Chat, Party System, ETC.

At those games prices, even with very little in the bank account , I will be picking them up. I really appreciate the price drop.

As always, PSBlog FTW!!

+ AngrySamurai on January 21st, 2010 at 3:51 pm said:

I’m just like Kuraudoffxi and Veign still waiting for Vagrant Story. Seriously, Championship Bass? REALLY? Well at least there’s DJ Max Fever.


57

+ gettinmoney662 on January 21st, 2010 at 3:54 pm said:

To be honest, I’d rather have sales than new games, at least for now anyways. I’m definitely picking up Braid and Zen Pinball. Not sure about Gravity Crash yet. I already have Critter Crunch and that game is amazing so if anyone is on the fence with that one, BUY IT!


58

+ StuntF50 on January 21st, 2010 at 4:02 pm said:

Look. Great update and everything, but there’s two major issues.

1) Vandal Hearts – there’s no demo. That’s because you don’t require a demo. That means I’m probably not going to buy it since I don’t want to just jump into a game I know nothing about without sampling it. XBLA has a demo. Get a demo.

2) Avatars – did you guys just release those Sackboy avatars once after IGN wrote an article about how you guys still haven’t released avatars? You can’t just stop afterwards. Everybody has a Sackboy avatar on my friends list. Why not keep releases consistent? Add a few new avatars from different games per week, build a library so everybody’s avatar won’t be the same thing.


59

+ ShadOforce on January 21st, 2010 at 4:02 pm said:

Well, this update is definitely better than the one from last week. Bravo!


60

+ drdre74 on January 21st, 2010 at 4:04 pm said:

cool I just got online and bought Critter Crunch as soon as I saw this. I may have to breakdown and get UNO also.


61

+ KazeEternal on January 21st, 2010 at 4:04 pm said:

Damn wish I had the cash for the MGS bundle, that would have been nice to shed the UMDs I have since I know I won’t sell them personally.

Anyway PSOne title at least it is something. However in FFXI Autotranslate Speak:

FF9, Vagrant Story,

+ RoecraticA on January 21st, 2010 at 4:07 pm said:

i think this update is a little better than last weeks espeaclily now that the ps1 classics are still going,thats a good thing to know. i really wish you guys though would give us a little warning about sales on the store,that would kinda help some of us out.

by the way what ever happened to echoshift,I thought this was coming out back in december? hope this is still planned on being realeased.


65

+ ProjectSiK on January 21st, 2010 at 4:07 pm said:

@2/9, agreed. It shouldn’t be difficult for Sony to maintain a consistent update time. Also, this update was just as bad as last week, Sony just doesn’t like money apparently. It’d be nice to actually see some decent content on the store sometime this year.

Another thing that bothers me is how Sony has been bumping the Avatars section all the way to the top under “New Releases” yet there is not one new avatar since their exposure in late December.

Last I checked, new releases are meant to be releases on THE DAY, not something that came out on December 21st….Get it together, Sony.


66

+ triple_lei on January 21st, 2010 at 4:07 pm said:

Braid, Critter Crunch, Gravity Crash, Uno… a perfect use for the $20 PSN card I bought!

(…even though I *was* saving it for that Gunbird 2 remix…)


67

+ rjejr on January 21st, 2010 at 4:08 pm said:

I think I would feel better about no demo’s if I didn’t see the 3 videos for Darksiders and one for Sonic and Sega Racers and Vancouver 2010 (which got a demo last week somewhere) and a bunch of others. I figured with all of those videos I was looking past there must be a demo following them up somewhere, especially after last week. WKC, SO:LH, Bioshock 2 and Dark Rain all come out next month so I guess the demos are coming, would just like to see them spread out a bit not all at once. This would’ve been a good week for 1 ;-) Will buy Critter Crunch and probably Zen Pinball so maybe next week for demos?


68

+ spideyal on January 21st, 2010 at 4:11 pm said:

Well it looks like I’ll be trying out Braid now. And maybe Critter Crunch since #50 said it was an entertaining puzzle game lol.

I need a break from FFXIII anyways, the Chapter 12 Boss is giving me trouble.


69

+ adventfire on January 21st, 2010 at 4:14 pm said:

Well I guess I’ll pick up zen pinball now and maybe even Uno but, it’s still not the greatest update. I’d still like to see a lot of the old PS1 RPGs in the store but, we get Championship Bass? Name one fishing game that took the gaming world by storm? And for you complainers about the complainers, we have a right to our opinions so stop making idiots out of yourselves by bashing people’s opinions who aren’t the same as yours.

+ megamixer on January 21st, 2010 at 4:15 pm said:

I wish they would put PSOne Classics on sale at some point. Its always PSN or PSP games so far which is great, but they should show some more support to their classic platform. :)

I don’t think we’ll ever see Demon’s Souls Dinamic theme in the US…sigh

Very cool that DJ Max Fever is a download game now. Need to get more memory sticks now…

A developer posted in the hustle kings thread on the PSU downloadable games forum. The game’s coming out on the 28th

I’ve just noticed SH Shattered Memories in the PS Store at my PS3. Please update the post cause you didn’t include SH Shattered Memories in the PlayStation Store for PSP. And thanks for the update. Better than ever :D

Other than that, nice update.

Good update but i would have loved it if there were a Vandal hearts demo, i want to buy the game but not too sure


81

+ improperlyaged on January 21st, 2010 at 4:28 pm said:

Um seriously? Championship bass? Sorry not a classic. N um u guys do realize that u said 10 games but u listed 12. Not complaining but it explains why u can’t update the store with a schedule. If u can’t count how can u possibly tell time. Lol. Also this sale isn’t really that enticing for psp owners like me. The money would be better spent on psp classics or that metal gear pack or even vandal hearts.

Kurulin Fusion? Mine!

I now know what it feels like to pay full-price shortly before a sale. Sucks. Still, not as bad for me since I bought it three or so weeks ago rather than one.

+ acerazer1 on January 21st, 2010 at 4:43 pm said:

Critter Crunch is an unbelievable deal for $3.50, everyone should give it a shot, you won’t regret it. Even at the full price it is so worth it, a more enjoyable game than most $10 games.

Also, Braid is a decent deal at the sale price, especially if you’re into the whole game as art piece/experience thing. Some excellent sales, thanks.

+ SilverPR on January 21st, 2010 at 4:44 pm said:

Braid will be a nice adition to my PSN collection.

For all of those asking for Hustle Kings: It must come down next Thursday since the word on the PlayStation boards that info was post, they are just not saying it here yet because they would have something to post about next week.

For all of those asking for Heavy Rain Demo: David Cage insist that a demo would be a lovely idea but still a 50/50 chance happening. If the demo would come it will be around 2 or 1 week before they release the game, in this case it could be on the 11th or 18th of February. He said that to some users on the IGN site via private messages, since He has a IGN Blog section in it. Then again it makes it unofficial if this true or not. Not even the Europe blog guys (which are more social and responsive to questions and comments more that some here even if they don’t have info of it) Don’t have a clue if a Demo will come.
