Ok now you guys really need to fix the download list or ate least give me a search. I purchased megaman 9 today. But I couldn’t play it because it was only the unlock I purchased. I downloaded the demo on September 25th, 2008….. It was entry number 722 on the download list….. It took me 10 excruciating minutes to locate the download on my list of already downloaded items because the Demo was no longer available on the store for me to acquire with ease. I did not get keep the demo on my PS3 either.

+ Genorok on August 9th, 2011 at 1:00 pm said:

LMAO $30 for an outdated game that sells for $15 new? And nothing to offer PS+ Members? Why would anyone buy an over priced game, and why would I want to get PS+ because I never see anything of value actually get discounted.

I’m still looking forward to Breath of Fire IV next week, but I always keep an eye out for new PSOne releases and PSP discounts. My backlog is so big I only look for sales at this point.

Does anyone know if Red Dead Redemption is available for download on PSN and how much? That complete DLC pack is a great deal and I would love to have both as a download.

@15 Fantasy_473

The Drop post on Sunday’s is not an indicator of everything or even what may exactly appear on Tuesday. The Drop is intended to just give us an insight on what projects they are confident or that they have been given permission to share with use ahead of time.

Most of the time Sony doesn’t know what will be posted on the PlayStation Store until Tuesday afternoon, with a few exceptions of course.

I like The Drop, but it is not a very good guide post for assuming what is on the store. There are a few people who seem to have this misconception judging by the comments section of The Drop alone.

Okay this is really starting to get ridiculous. We wait since March for you guys to get Parasite Eve 2 rated by the ESRB and now we’ve been waiting about a month since they’re rated it for you to put it up. What’s going on Sony? I’ve been checking the blog since March, which is when it was supposed to be put up, just to be continually disappointed.

@38: Yeah, PSP Go buyers really got screwed over by Sony. I was just commenting in another blog post how MLB 10 The Show is still the same price as MLB 11 The Show — if I hadn’t given Sony the benefit of the doubt, I could have just purchased MLB 09 The Show for $5 on UMD, which would’ve been fine since all three games are practically identical to one another — actually, I think 09 was the only one of the three that had online functionality. It’s been an important lesson that will most definitely determine how and when I give Sony my money in the future.

That said, this might be a good time to check out Undead Nightmare. I’ve heard there’s quite a lot of content there for what’s being charged this week.

Some stuff missing: the Megaman 9 & 10 sales aren’t listed.
