Bad. A sole PSN game which is little more than a lazy “MEGAMIXER” port? Bad. $40 “MEGAMIXER” games in this day and age of the systems life? Bad. None of the numerous PSOne classics that got “MEGAMIXER” approved in the past few months? Bad. No Pac-Man DX for PSP despite “MEGAMIXER” having had it for weeks? Bad. No new “MEGAMIXER COMPLAINTS” Bad. No Back to the Future with “MEGAMIXER” Bad. PSN 2011 sale? So-so. This is all just… bad.

My favorite game of ALL TIME is a ps3 exclusive, yet it isn’t supported well despite still having a very active online community and being a cult favorite. The game I am speaking of is Demon’s Souls.
Please, please, please bring some Demon’s Souls avatars and the dynamic theme to the U.S. (and anything else you can think of). I will purchase them greedily (check playstation share blog to see that I am hardly alone in this).
Why wasn’t it done initially, I wonder???

Where are the PSOne Classic updates?

Such a shame that Sony is not taking advantage of all the great games on the original Playstation. As with both the Sly and God of War rereleases on PS3, there is obviously a market out there for people who missed out on both the PSX and PS2 platforms’ great library of games.

I personally started gaming around the later years of the Playstation 2’s lifecycle and missed out on a ton of Playstation classics like Final Fantasy Tactics and Grandia, and was glad that I was able to get a chance to play them on the PS3.

Please Sony, release more of the classics: Vagrant Story, Xenogears, Persona, etc.

No disrespect, but all of you people whining and griping about how this isn’t here or that isn’t here need to stop. There’s tons of great content on the PSN to buy and PSN offers more sales than other online console distributors. I’m sure Grace and everyone else bust their butts every week to get the releases out and there oftentimes are reasons why certain games aren’t releasing that go beyond the staff at PSN. I mean there’s not a blockbuster game EVERY week during traditional Tuesday releases…why should that be different on the PSN console?

People forget that there are human beings who work on this that aren’t deserving of the inappropriate rage. I mean there’s a sale of 11 games that are well made games that are half off, yet you protest still. You could release every Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, and Vagrant Story and STILL people would complain that Teletubbies for the PSN wasn’t released (don’t even know if that was a game).

Moral of the story: be grateful for how much we get every week. It’s a lot more than others and more of it goes on sale than others.

“Ro Hernandez | January 24th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

If the Game is currently available on Amazon, the sale offer will also be made available…”

Just a heads up, but none of the following games have had their prices updated on Amazon yet: Shatter, Hoard, Soldner-X2: Final Prototype, MotorStorm 3D Rift, Peggle, Tumble, Comet Crash (none of the others are listed on Amazon PSN). When will their sale prices go into effect?

I probably wont get this question answered cause this Store Update post rarely get questions answered but here goes:

The code for the LBP Slurpee Giveaway do not work. I have two codes for the background themes, which say there are invalid when typed in. What do I have to do with the codes? Do I wait until a update?

I cant find that anywhere on the Store …not in the New Releases, not in the add-on section, not in the Special Offers section …I cant even find the 17.99 one …what’s going on? did it get accidentally deleted instead of having the price reduced?

I don’t think Lord of Arcana is worth the $40. $30 is MUCH more reasonable.
Dissidia 012 (also made by Square Enix) will be $30 retail (unless SCEA PSN pulls a fast one on us).

At this stage in the PSP’s life, only AAA titles deserve the $40 tag. SCEA, you guys are STILL toying with what’s left of your PSP fanbase, and those guys are loyal. They deserve better than this.

You know what’s funny. We have someone like Megamixer not afraid to say what really needs to be said and then we got the Sony sheep like Morris that mock him for speaking his mind instead of doing “Wow Sony, great update, absolutely *claps*” when it’s clearly not.


82

+ TwinDad on January 25th, 2011 at 3:16 pm said:

@morris and @Glacier

Like his posts or not he has a valid question. Sony made the PS3 PS1 compatible and posts as such all over the internet from launch. Flash forward 4+ years, and the selection of PS1 titles available for download is questionable. Not just quantity but quality as well. I’d settle or a simple it’s license, copyright, DCMA or similar information.

It’s simply a customer letting his buying preference be known, no need for a survey. I will tell them the same thing. You put a PS1 RPG on the PSN, I will buy regardless of price.

It is sad that we cannot get any real feedback about the store in the only place (this Blog) there really is for us to actually get feedback about it.

Please start answering questions. You have customers telling you what they would like to see on the store and asking legitimate questions that a customer has a right to ask a business. All we get here on the US Blog is silence.

thanks for posting that. while i understand Europe doesnt get as much content as say US, or Japan PSN. they at least get feedback on a lot of things. i mean i really dont see how hard it is to stay on these blog for 30min just answering questions some of which are very easy/simple to answer.

Just shows that the people on these blog could care less out their customers.

@morris & glacier
Why mock someone that speaks the truth?
You need someone like Megamixer to keep people informed and to try to hold someone accountable.Sony did promise more legacy titles.Just compare the amount between the U.S. and Japan and you can see why he might be upset.The sale of an item should be reflected across the board.I shouldn’t get screwed if I shop at Amazon.So thank you Megamixer.I appreciate your posts.
