Come on. This is pathetic. Where is Crisis Core, Final Fantasy Tactics War of Lions (remake), Dino Crisis 2, or Downstream Panic!?

I bought a PSP Go hoping that I would be able to download a bunch of cools games. Sure there are some really nice games available, but these updates are pretty bad considering what should be available.

@x_chepito_13
Well Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II are on the Japanese Store, so we hope to see Origins here someday. Final Fantasy IX and Chrono Cross aren’t.

What really amaze me is Vagrant Story not being on the US Store, I would love to see it.
Hey guys do you have any ideas on when it’s comming, or even if it’s comming?

Forgive me if this has been asked, yet what’s the chances of getting PS2 downloadable games on the PSN? I know we have PS1 games updated weekly and thank you!!! Yet, I’d love to relive some PS2 classics also…


114

+ Jarvool7 on January 21st, 2010 at 5:38 pm said:

Grace,

I’m just curious as to whether or not there are plans to release Vagrant Story here. I’d like to know if there is a reason for the delay or decision not too… i think there’s a fair amount of hype about it but no ones confirmed anything as far as I’m aware. I know that myself and many others are definitely interested in the release of more good PS 1/2 RPGs. Are there any more planned?

games i’m interested in include:
Breath of fire series, more Suikoden, Dragon Quest 7, Xenogears, Vagrant story etc…

Thanks for getting Vandel Hearts out on time! :) I was getting worried nothing was announced about it. Now please release Vandel Hearts 1 and 2 on the PS1 Classics store.. Also get Konami to get Suikoden 2 and Squaresoft to get Vagrant STory, Bushido Blade 1 and 2, Musashi, Parasite Eve, FF9, Parasite Eve 2, oh and your own 1st party epic … LEgend of Dragoon… Then there is Legend of Legia, Alundra, Lunar Silver star story, Mega Man Legends 1/2/tronebonne, Diablo, Ogre Tactics, etc…

Yeah I love rpgs.. and that is why I have always loved playstation.. You guys are finally starting to get there on the ps3, but there are hundreds of RPGS on PS1/PS2…bring em over to the Psn store I will buy them up and so will others!!! Don’t you want our money? You will get more money from a good psn rpg then bass fishing or bowling. Just look at the top downloads.. FF7, FF8 that should tell you something, its not just FF but all PS1 rpgs!

good update compared to last week at least ur adding ps1 games so I know ur actually getting them in there earlier because in 09 it took a little while to get them ready. 09 was great with content and i hope 2010 will be even better. Crash Team Racing, Crash Bash, Gex 2 Enter the Gecko would be great and gran turismo 1 and 2 i wouldnt mind. 1 classic that i really liked but isnt at the top of my list is Army Men 3-D that game was hard but fun i wouldnt mind that either. Im just suggesting some games that I really like and would like to see them on the store some time soon.

Thank you

+ AuroMarshmallow on January 21st, 2010 at 6:38 pm said:

This update really isn’t too horrible, but at first glance I was pretty disappointed. I, for one hope every Thursday for more PSOne classics, as I buy them much more frequently than I do anything else on the PSN. I am pleased that now I’ll get a chance to try out Braid though, and n’thing Critter Crunch as being a possible pick-up for me.

Is there any possibility of more (and better) PSOne classics any time soon. I would be more than happy to spend my money on Final Fantasy IX, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Suikoden II (Especially Suikoden II. Seriously, we have the first one, why not the second?), Legend of Legaia or anything else of quality. I appreciate original content on the PSN too, but getting nothing would be better than getting Championship Bass, in my opinion.

+ KidCommando on January 21st, 2010 at 6:54 pm said:

The last thing I bought off of the store was Pixel Junk Shooter. Updates have been very underwhelming in 2010 so far.

Critter Crunch was a steal at $7.00, for $3.50 it’s the best gaming deal on PSN. Anyone who is even remotely interested in puzzle games should check it out. very solid game with interesting gameplay elements.

lol….didn’t take Braid long for a price cut.
