@ DonCalzone21
Really CoD:BlackOps doesn’t work at all, it erase all my campaign data, my Zombie Mode maps and my Cod Money from Online MP. It doesn’t hold a Party, Has Host Problems, has Massive Lag problems, has a very buggy Main Menu and side Menu’s, The 3D sucks, The weapons sound unrealistic, The MP Maps aren’t good, The technology in game is unrealistic for the time-line, It feels Sluggish, and has a massive amount of hacks and glitches. I think that answers your question.

@ PlayStation Blog
BTW Nice update for the PlayStation Plus, Spyro the Dragon, I was so waiting for this game. And Tretris Woohoo

$4 for angry birds? Get real and stop smoking whatever your smoking.

I may consider Tetris but just cause $10 is ‘common’ doesn’t mean its right. How about $7.99? or just an even $8.00 and you might have me.

At any rate, I love demo’s so score! :)

P.S. My wishlist includes XCOM UFO Defense put up as PS1 classic so I can play that bad boy on my PSP. Make it happen Sony and I swear X-Mas cards 2011 for all of SCEA! :)

Ha! I misread the Neo Geo price as $9.99. I still thought it was too expensive. Metal Slug, Samurai Showdown, and KOF ’94 are great but certainly there is no justification for the pricing.

For $80, all of these games should be completely rewritten in 1080p, 5.1 Sound, 3D graphics… Just kidding, it’d still be a ripoff.

+ Solid-Snake-Eyes on January 5th, 2011 at 9:17 am said:

I bought Angry Birds, the game is cool but this is a bad port. As the castle is falling apart the game will suffer slow down so that the image will freeze up for a bit and then resume several frames later, so that you missed some of the falling apart animation. This happens every time you hit the castle, it’s not acceptable. Really poor.

disappointed that Angry Birds is stripped down, too expensive and trophy-less. glad i got lead & gold for free, no one should have to pay money for that – tried to play it, absolutely NOONE online, but it let me run around and capture flags by myself, lol. could be a connection issue with me, some things i can play just fine on PSN, some things just never work (usually anything involving only 2 players in a console-to-console connection). still, yuck, as far as the game goes. hopefully we get something better next time. spyro for ps1 is much appreciated. still loving sam & max and bf1943, so i’m not regretting buying plus a few weeks ago, but i hope next time it’s something i really want (maybe give us all the fallout 3 DLC? still need to play 3 of them).

+ jrinck on January 5th, 2011 at 1:50 pm said:

I’m a Rock Band junkie. Usually get at least something for it each week.

Angry Birds $3.99? Seriously? $0.99 is an attractive psychological price point, which works amazingly well on the iPad and iPhone. It goads you to take a chance because it’s “only a dollar.” Anything else makes one think. You won’t sell half the amount at $1.99 that you do at $0.99, for example. It’s not linear. I’m willing to bet you’ll sell 10X at $0.99 than you would at $1.99. You can’t take an iOS game that people paid $0.99 for and try to convince them it’s worth $3.99 on the PS3. You’ll probably sell 1000X LESS than if you made the game $0.99.

Tetris is also ridiculously priced, but I’ll just do what I always do with ridiculous PSN prices, and that is to wait a while for you to realize you’re not selling it well at that price and drop the price to $4.99 and $2.99 for PSN+. I’ll get it then. You do it all the time, so I can wait it out.

Well I’d have to say other than a few video trailers and the Tetris HD (now THAT’S something I truly am psyched to see), there thing else about this update was pretty ‘meh’ at best. Honestly Sony, after a week off I would’ve expected a far better update for the new year than the one that did come out.

Btw, if you’re gonna add some avatars, would it kill you guys to please complete DMC4 set…adding Dante & Trish (namely Dante). That would ever so awesome.

What a big letdown except for Tetris. The first update of the New Year suppose to be the best one. But I have high hopes hopes of seeing some great titles in the store this year. Hopefully Sonic Adventure 2, GT1 and 2, and FF1 and 2 (20th Anniv.)

Its an okay start to the year, but still not great, I’d buy Scott Pilgrim for $5 right now but I’d have to pay $4 or $5 this month to join the club to get the discount, so it would cost me the same as just buying it now… (and then hope they had sales i wanted the rest of the year…) Not gonna happen. Sony please give PS+ members something extra for their money, but sales on games should be for every one, not just club members. What business model are you guys following??

At least some games are actually on sale this week (bionic commando is good, Topatoi not so much), unlike Xmas time. Remember what you got at Xmas time on PSN? Some demos maybe? Nothing good on sale. This was the sale that Xbox Live got:

33% Off
Super Meat Boy
Comic Jumper
Toy Soldiers
50% Off:
Banjo Tooie
Castle Crashers
The UnderGarden
Risk Factions
Afterburner Climax
Borderlands Claptrap’s New Revolution
Carcassonne

Brand new and high profile games half off. And even that sale wasn’t really that great. But I still would have spent my PSN cards if we had had a similar sale.. Castle Crashers was half off! I was envious but thought maybe PSN would follow suit? Nope.

And Angry Birds I’d try for $1 but its not a good game for consoles, its a time waster on a phone, i just wanted to try it but $4 is a crime. I hope the minis follow iphone’s example and get cheaper.

“NEOGEO Station PS3 Bundle Pack ($79.99)”?

Really Playstation I love my PS3, but…I can get all those games FREE on a neogeo emulator on my PC?

Maybe I’d pay $1-$2 per game, but 79.99 LOL wow, no thanks.

Waiting for Suikoden II. Please! The store seems to have sequels to almost all the playstation classic games except for Suikoden. I would also love to see more RPG’s like Legend of Mana. Thanks!

Grabbed the new Eyepet outfits along with some of the other Eyepet DLC. :)

My 7yr. has been playing Eyepet everday since Christmas and is having a great time with it.
I hope to see some Activities DLC for the Eyepet in the future.

I had a couple of ideas. A simple Tic-Tac-Toe set would be fun for young kids. A Park set for the Outdoor activities (swing, slide and a seesaw) would be a lot of fun. You could use your Move Controller to operate the side of the seesaw opposite of the Eyepet. My child also really enjoys all the sports games and the snap game too. More sports games would be great as DLC.

My child and I are both looking forward to Eyepet 2.
Were hoping for a puppy or kitten to be included in the next Eyepet (either on the disc or as DLC). If Eyepet 2 only includes the original Eyepet design it will still be a day one purchase for us.

Thanks for making such a nice game for kids. There is nothing negative about this game at all for children (My wife and I enjoy it too and were 40 yrs. old :P.

Are we ever going to see more of the Final Fantasy games for PSP? I mean, I upgraded from a 1000 series to a Go, and I REALLY want to play FFI and II, and hell, Crisis Core would be nice. Please?
