To those who want PS1 games…

2.) Buy a Japanese Yen card. (eBay works)

4.) PS1 games, PS1 games everywhere.

I just downloaded Tomba, and Klonoa, maybe I’ll go download Parasite Eve 2 next. Who knows!

Wow you guys are nuts! $29.99 for Far Cry 2? I could get 2 physical copies for that and still have change left over . And that’s for new copies . I could probably get a used copy under $10 . I can’t imagine why anyone would buy it at that price .

You guys have been doing a wonderful job updating the store early, its spectacular really. Updates themselves have been pretty lackluster, but hey its summer, I guess thats to be expected.

I assume there is some kind of release date schedule, and it makes me wonder why no classic PS1 games are released in theses lean months.

It would be great to put them out now, since by all indications the back half of the year is going to be packed, and any game that may have a shot at being noticed will be overlooked when released during that time.

No discounts again? Wow. This is pathetic. I don’t expect loads of new games but some discounts should be weekly. FarCry 2 at 33 bucks is absolutely ridiculous, Network should be embarrassed to surcharge people 300%.

Meh. A horrible week (with the only saving graces being “PlayStation Play” and the small deals on the side.)

Over priced digital game downloads (again.) Thirty ($30.00 USD) dollars for FarCry2?! Really? I knew morons were running Sony. I can see I was right. Also another crock load of crap is the over priced downloadable content (if you can even call it as such really.) Six dollars for yet another pilot from – Dynasty Warrios: Gundam3 – and of course poor, Freddy Krueger, is sitting at a miserable five dollars (when I can purchase four of his movies (together) at a reasonable price of five dollars on standard DVD format.) Talk about ballsy and stupid.

Why is there also just only “one” new avatar? Way to piss off the PlayStation users. I seriously thought the past several weeks were bad, but this is just horrible. It’s like watching Sony try to sell us “lint” from their pocket at an overly inflated and outrageously proportioned price. This is pathetic. Such a weak and pitiful push for the “PlayStation Play” program.
