Could I see a screenshot of this so called “acid trip” theme?

oh right, no one responds to these. Should have moved to Europe!

This is a pretty small update…

When can we get some more White Knight Chronicles DLC and avatars other than LBP?


9

+ gators625 on March 18th, 2010 at 5:26 pm said:

Great PSP update!

Once question, though. The ESRB also rated Groovin’ Blocks for the PSP. When will that version be released?


10

+ jimmyfoxhound on March 18th, 2010 at 5:26 pm said:

Oh, I see a soundtrack for sale. Cool! Is there any word about the Flower soundtrack being available anytime soon? Just wondering!


11

+ INTVGene on March 18th, 2010 at 5:26 pm said:

Terrible update, but it was to be expected.

Best news this week was the blog.share, assuming they actually listen to the ideas that are posted on there.


12

+ megamixer on March 18th, 2010 at 5:27 pm said:

Still no PJ Shooter demo despite it having been available overseas for 2+ months…

On the bright side echoshift dlc and Patchwork Heroes are mine :D


13

+ JonL13 on March 18th, 2010 at 5:27 pm said:

It’s not the greatest update ever… But hey, whatever!

I would loooove more avatars, and premium themes!

+ Kirkpad on March 18th, 2010 at 5:28 pm said:

I didn’t know they offered the Tester for PSP. Even though I don’t have one, that’s pretty cool. I’ll be watching it in HD on the PS3 tonight.
I certainly want to see what that dynamic theme looks like, and I might just buy the Heavy Rain soundtrack. That soundtrack was absolutely enthralling.

+ h4l0fw1nt3r on March 18th, 2010 at 5:29 pm said:

You guys didn’t mention the echoshift levels! Although they’ve been mentioned on a previous post, figured they count in the update as well.

why all the delay for HEAVY RAIN DLC???? damn. bad, bad update for me.


22

As a metal-head, is it a bad thing I was looking forward to that Lady GaGa DLC :p?

Anyhow nice update, I’m considering Joint Strike, time to check if it has trophies!

Nice to finally see obscure PSOne releases, but is there a good reason why BlazBlue PSP isn’t available yet?


24

Some pretty nice stuff, just not things that I personally want; Anyway, I can at least look forward to the mag dlc next week.

No a good update.


26

+ BeerManMike on March 18th, 2010 at 5:32 pm said:

Horrible update. Sucky demo, blah PSone games and boring downloadable games. Not to mention the drug refrence theme! good going Sony!


27

+ jasoncps on March 18th, 2010 at 5:32 pm said:

Yet another terrible PSP update.

Where is Williams Collection, Metal Slug XX, Crisis Core, and many more I won’t bother listing?

Where are the PSP demos?

The complete lack of effort to support PSPgo users is mind boggling considering the asking price.

No wonder it’s not selling guys, you won’t bother supporting it properly!

Doomsday34 there is one but you have to buy slurpees in order to get it.

Weird request.

Any way we can get some sort of sorting or filtering feature in our download history. Be appreciated.

Still got $$$ with your name on it if you give me Fat Princess PSP.

Nice update! Probably buy patchwork as I really enjoyed the demo.

FYI for the kid who was wondering about a GOW3 dynamic theme, you can get one via the slurpee.com website. I’m rocking mine.

37

+ sNsKid on March 18th, 2010 at 5:37 pm said:

I might get 1942 Joint Strike since it’s on the cheap right now. I had a feeling this weeks update wouldn’t really interest me. I suppose it doesn’t matter since I have FFXIII to play.

But the store update seems kinda thin….. No Kevin Butler MOVE commercial?

You know, when I downloaded the latest episode of Qore from my annual subscription, I was told that I’d get to download a Heavy Rain Dynamic theme. There was no Heavy Rain dynamic theme to download… only a Dead to Rights Retribution static theme. What’s the deal with that? Anybody else have this issue? Decent update, btw. Let’s change the PSN Store update day to Tuesday, instead of Thursday. That way it’d be in line with the competition and traditional retailers.
