The whole avatar thing irks me because it is such a easy thing to fix. I have had my system and the same avatar since june 2007. Thats because there is nothing else that interests me. Why is it that ps3 has the highest age median, but they put out these kiddie goofy avatars. It is something so small that through frustration has become so big.

Avatars please.

I’d love some new avatars, preferably third-party avatars like Final Fantasy, Ninja Gaiden, etc.

about time

Good to see a new Mega Man 10 dynamic theme up, but I was kind of hoping the White Knight Chronicles dynamic theme Europe got would also be added.

Still got lots of work to do Ro, better get cracking. Still waiting on those results.

Final Fight Double impact will be mine.

what a crappy update….

+ berzirk on April 15th, 2010 at 4:13 pm said:

Uhh…Sheep Defense and Monopoly. ooooook. Without trying to be too big of an A-hole, what does it take to be considering a Playstation Classic. Did it need to sell more than 500 copies, or is it based on development contracts? Really seems like a strange assortment of…uhh…classics.

+ Majin_Neo on April 15th, 2010 at 4:13 pm said:

Can we get some more stuff for the PSP go? So many good titles untouched on the PSN

Need some God of War III and Bad Company 2 avatars.

It’s Racing week and there is no discount on the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift expansions?

Boo-urns, I say. Boo-urns.

I want Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony on psp store.

+ kzarling on April 15th, 2010 at 4:14 pm said:

Awesome deal on Wipeout HD. Too bad I already have it. If you don’t have it, it’s well worth $10.

+ MelkiahFox on April 15th, 2010 at 4:15 pm said:

This update is garbage, aside from the megaman X theme.. I’m selling my PSP go today

+ Etharius on April 15th, 2010 at 4:15 pm said:

Good grief, another week of nothing for PSP Go owners.

Meanwhile the EU store is having a massive fire sale. Makes the “Spring fever” promotion look very, very weak.


20

+ DZORMAGEN on April 15th, 2010 at 4:16 pm said:

Why does Europe’s PSN Store get much better stuff than the US store? I never got the reason why it is not the same? They have better games for minis, and better games for PS1! Please help me understand why different countries get different updates! Are we not all in the PS Nation Family? People that don’t believe me, go check out eu.playstation.blog, and you will see what I mean…..

+ Sonicfan11589 on April 15th, 2010 at 4:16 pm said:

is it all right when u can tell me when ur putting up a sale on fighting games, hopefully Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny will go on sale for $20 or less, I was so looking forward to a sale. Good thing i got Final Fantasy 13 today.


22

+ Korlithiel on April 15th, 2010 at 4:16 pm said:

Pretty thin update for PSP owners, and another week of only a worthless PS1 classic blows.

So, here’s looking forward to next. Not to mention the price drop on Vahalla Knights 2 is good.


23

+ rogXue on April 15th, 2010 at 4:18 pm said:

insert derogatory comment here… I’m so sick of this crap…


24

+ TwinDad on April 15th, 2010 at 4:18 pm said:

Well at least I can get to Pulse on the PSP. Undecided about Final Fight I love beat-em-ups so much.

At least I get one more week to contemplate a firmware update.

@majin_neo

Ironic as many PSPGo’s remain untouched too.

What a load of crap

+ Pitch_Blak on April 15th, 2010 at 4:20 pm said:

You know, seeing the Racing banner actually got my hopes up that you guy finally came to your senses and released Crash Team Racing.

Guess I can’t think that logically.


27

+ Charles_Surge on April 15th, 2010 at 4:21 pm said:

WipEout HD is so worth $10. Get it.
Time to d/l Sam & Max, I hope it’s as awesome as I hope.


28

+ BeerManMike on April 15th, 2010 at 4:21 pm said:

Wow, P.O.S update once again, not a reason to login to the PSN!

What crap.

hmmm….i was hoping for something for my psp this week on the spring fever sale. i wonder why only i game? the last few weeks were pretty exciting. this week seems ok. i wouldn’t mind wipeout on my psp but that it was only for ps3. thats ok ill wait for next week. good job keep up the hard work.


30

+ BlooodyCow on April 15th, 2010 at 4:23 pm said:

Out of the 100s and 100s of PS1 classic games, you guys choose XS Junior League Dodgeball? Never heard of that game before and I am pretty sure no one cares about it.


31

+ Lowe0 on April 15th, 2010 at 4:24 pm said:

Why are you scraping the bottom of the barrel for PSOne Classics when so many true classics remain unreleased? Where’s Syndicate Wars or Fade To Black?


32

+ Darth-Krayt on April 15th, 2010 at 4:24 pm said:

Great update this week. I can’t believe people are down rating this update. Typical for these people though, I suppose.

Can’t wait to play Sam and Max

I’m so excited for a new Magic Ball expansion too. I hope there are plenty more coming.

Will also be getting Monopoly for my PSP Go as well.

And to hell with the haters. I absolutely LOVE my PSP Go. There’s only 3 games not on the store I want for my Go. Crisis Core, Final Fantasy 1, and Mega Man Powered Up. Aside from those, every PSP game I could ever want is on the store. Aside from my PS3, PSP Go is my favorite piece of video game hardware I’ve ever owned and I have owned every major platform since the Atari days.


33

+ awsome_robot on April 15th, 2010 at 4:25 pm said:

Still waiting on Peace Walker videos on the store. (Also, by us wanting the store to update sooner, we mean like, MUCH SOONER, just past noon on the EAST COAST at the latest. Its no fun waiting till nightfall… or at least post the store content on the blog in the morning so that at least we’ll know if waiting till nightfall will be worth it. Oh and btw, the eu blog does that).

+ BusyManDan on April 15th, 2010 at 4:26 pm said:

I am never going to download anything from Sony again until they own up to their mistake with me. Customer service SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If everybody quits buying the downloads then they will take notice.

You guys are cruel. I saw a racing theme and, though we’re still a month out, thought we might get a ModNation Racers demo to keep us occupied for the next 5 weeks or so. Please give us a demo soon :)

Dodgeball the 100th PSone classic great job on that choice.
I mean it really thats fantastic no way could I think of
a better game to be the 100th very impressive.

Oh, and why don’t we have any wallpapers or dynamic themes for God of War III? It’s been a month already and you guys aren’t hyping 2010’s hands-down game of the year?

Hey Jeff, ever think about moving the leave a comment section above all comments so we don’t have to scroll down to post a comment? not a big deal but i just had that thought and wanted to share it.

48

+ jhl74 on April 15th, 2010 at 4:30 pm said:

Nice update and all but you really need to stop flooding psn with crappy ps1 classics. Almost no one will buy these titles so why keep putting them out? Why not release the ones people actually will buy? Is it because you want to increase sales of newer psn original titles? You people really need to learn from Sony Japan. They are getting 11 psone classics this week (including Wolf Fang, Zero Divide, and Kowloon’s Gate) if you bother to care.


49

+ TwinDad on April 15th, 2010 at 4:33 pm said:

Perhaps some had high hopes, or maybe they don’t blindly fanboy Sony? I think there is fair right to “complain” or better yet voice constructive criticism for a better PSN. I personally know each week isn’t going to be a 10. Typical for “these” people is Yea Sony 10!!!!! or Boourns.

I have those 3 games for my PSP 3000. To each his own. I loved my Dreamcast.
