For those, like myself, that had the previous version of the PS Store on your cellular or tablet, you can still download your previous ps1 classics through the store within PlayStation Mobile. Simply press the menu button on your device while in the PSM store front and select the download list. Your ps1 games will be located there.

Fix the DRM system. A one time per game check should be sufficient enough. Wanted to play beats trellis on my subway ride home. Unfortunately, i have no cellular sservice underground. Thus, the drm check failed and i could not access my content. That sucks sweaty pigs, it verified my purchase last night and earlier today at work. Does it really need to do so every single time i access my content. You are eating up my limited data, when i have service. Not cool bros, not cool one bit.

Please make an SDK that isn’t tied to C# and Mono. Programming with the JVM and Scala is really a breath of fresh air after being stuck in C# for so long. Ah well, there is always the straight Android SDK.

So it’s Buyer Beware for Wi-Fi only Vita users since you apparently aren’t able to play anything you buy unless you have an internet connection at all times. I had feared that when I read the small print, and it appears to be verified by vesra’s comments above #102… Why do you keep sticking your head in your ass Sony? Foot too comfy?

I just won’t a app were I can access my playstation network store from my iPad,iPhone,droid,I touch etc. I want to be able to buy a downloadable game from my desk on my iPad with out having to go turn on the tv, get my controller out wait for psn to load and everything I want to be able to pull my iPad out and go to a playstation store and download add on content or game right from my iPad. And be able to back download it with out ever going in the living room and turning the tv on.Wii u had this exact concept so if it works how they say, Sony and Microsoft is out of the game! Nintendo is dominating! Sony I love you guys so bring up your game!

I have a question that I’d like as many answers as possible for. Are you trophy collectors new to gaming? If you’re not new to gaming, didn’t you enjoy playing games for fun or for the challenge before trophies were added to games? Did all of last generation’s games fail to interest you because they didn’t have trophies? Of course not, right? So, how did you lose touch with what initially got you into gaming? How did trophies become such a dominant force in your gaming lives? How the @#$% did trophies become more important and/or interesting than the games themselves?

I like to acquire trophies myself, they’re a nice little bonus to shoot for, but to completely dismiss a game for a lack of these little imaginary rewards? I just don’t understand. Really, I’m trying to understand the mindstate of you gamers today. Please answer.

And to explain my position further – personally, the main reason I game is for fun, of course. The secondary reason is for the challenge. I absolutely LOVE to be challenged. I love the trial-and-error process, solving the puzzles that stand in my way, and the eventual triumphant bliss when the challenge is finally overcome. I’m also a bit of a perfectionist. Not totally OCD-type perfectionist, but enough of one to have an uncompleted game sitting there bugging me a little bit. I like to complete games to 100% if I can, mostly for the satisfaction of conquering the challenge of course, but also so that I feel like I’ve experienced all the game can offer.

Trophies add an extra layer of challenges to complete. That’s why I enjoy them. But as I just said, they are an EXTRA layer. A nice little ADDITION to the overall package. They aren’t mandatory for any reason. If a game doesn’t have trophies, I still shoot for all the in-game goals, and enjoy my time doing so.

Maybe this is all because I’m an older gamer who’s been gaming since 1983 so I’d like to believe that I know what gaming is all about. I really don’t understand the “no trophy = no buy” mind-state at all.

I loved the points you made about the DRM and how flawed the theories of “lost revenue due to piracy” really are. I wish more people were able to think for themselves like that, and not just swallow whatever garbage the industry capitalists feed them. I’m anti-piracy as well, and you’re right on target with what you said. You made a lot of good points, and the industry big-wigs should read it and take notes. Keep it real, brother.

Really bummed that the PS1 games list is gone. I found, thanks to the previous poster, where the games I’ve already downloaded were, but I wish I still had the option to buy some more. I’m cool with new stuff, but how hard would it have been to keep the old options open?

Thanks in advance. Other than this complaint, I’m loving the new store front! Fits in well with the look and feel of the Vita!

I own a sony tablet and i can’t seem to buy ps1 games anymore. I do like the minis but i really wanted to buy some more ps1 games for my tablet. I own a ps3 and have lots of ps1 games on there but is there anyway to get them on my tablet now that the store has changed.

Thanks for the love PrimeroIncognito! +1 to briianc as well. Although Sony’s tact is less tasteless than MS’s or Nintendo’s – it still isn’t what I’d call a strictly above board practice. Say for example, you are a casual gamer – now with the PSM store you have $0.79 games available. You have no money in your digital wallet, so when you buy this eighty cent game you are charged $5.00. Since you are a casual gamer, you may not buy another game for months. Sure, the credit is still there for you to use – but Sony has been collecting interest on your money and not you. What if you never buy another game from Sony again for whatever reason? Sony has now collected $5 for the sale of a $0.79 game. It’s a couple bucks, I get it – but it is Sony making a mountain out of many thousand molehills – not me. It really isn’t a matter of somebody probably shouldn’t be buying games if they are worried about a few dollars at all. It’s about getting what we pay for when we pay for it, and only paying for what we buy when we buy it.

Thanks 102, I didn’t see that. Now I don’t have to worry about my PSone purchases. Still wish I could have Wild Arms 2 on my tablet though.
