Cuboid, eh? I didn’t realize it was coming so soon. And be sure to thank Namco Bandai for me- these free Naruto DLC packs are great. :D

    Don\’t take this as a sign of things to come…it\’s only light because it\’s the post-holiday post!

hmm it could have been better after 2 weeks of waiting.

StargamerX said:

January 8th, 2:05 pm

Qore is the only appealing thing on the list…

Biskoito said:

Horrible update!

mikeja72 said:

January 8th, 2:07 pm

When is Savage Moon coming out?

reson8er said:

January 8th, 2:07 pm

I must say, no demos and no PS1 Classics makes me sad.

AceGamer said:

January 8th, 2:08 pm

That’s it?

I was hoping for a beefy update, since you guys were gone for about two weeks.

StalkingSilence said:

January 8th, 2:08 pm

Looking forward to the weekly LBP DLC resuming on January 22. I hope new PS3/PSP owners understand that we normally are privileged with more content.

It’s ok, I’m still working on my trophies.

NewYork214 said:

January 8th, 2:08 pm

that sucks. cant get to ps3 so was hoping something for PSP this week. a video or anything

StalkingSilence said:

January 8th, 2:09 pm

When I saw: WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 Roster Update ($4.99)
I was surprised at first… then I saw the SIZE of the download and what all it included. If you’re going to charge for roster updates – that’s the way to do it.

D_HILIFE said:

January 8th, 2:10 pm

I was looking forward to Savage Moon. :(

bond2009 said:

January 8th, 2:10 pm

This is garbage, sony does not care about us owners who only have the psp, and can’t afford the ps3 yet


January 8th, 2:10 pm

Where is Savage moon!!!

shooter0784 said:

January 8th, 2:11 pm

wouldnt say dull but i want a demo for resident evil already… 360 got one what 3 weeks ago…

more actual releases is a + no matter how you look at it but dont forget about the demos…

its kinda retarded that you gotta buy qore to get the head start on fear 2 demo.. and you have to actually put money down on killzone to play that demo.. and wait none the less…

but hey keep the updates rolling..

Thwip said:

January 8th, 2:12 pm

I can’t believe Qore is up to episode 8 already…where does the time go?

Thanx 4 the update!

Ajora said:

January 8th, 2:12 pm

What about Valkyria Chronicles DLC? :(

paddy92 said:

January 8th, 2:12 pm

crap, skate 2 demo?

dvntsvnt said:

January 8th, 2:12 pm

Mercs 2 DLC, with a price tag this time? Last time it was free, I wonder if it has improved with this price increase.

C-h-a-o-s said:

January 8th, 2:13 pm

I for one will be all over Mahjong!

For those of you complaining did you forget last week and the week before where holidays? Even game developers and those who work in the gaming industry deserve a break.

January 8th, 2:15 pm

What is going to happen with the Rock Band songs? We are now a week behind. I might get qore but I was expecting much more this week…

Nagis said:

January 8th, 2:15 pm

Hey guys, it’s a great update! However Savage Moon was promised in the Fall (I remember the Blog post that got my hyped about it) and yet it still isnt here. Will there be by any chance any news about this? (I was hoping to get it while my Wisdom teeth heal up, but I guess Fallout 3 will help me there, haha)

EvoAnub1s said:

January 8th, 2:16 pm

Custom soundtracks for all ps3 games past a certain date. If it can be done with trohpies it can be done with custom soundtracks too. Along with album editing of multiple files in one fell swoop.

shooter0784 said:

January 8th, 2:16 pm

i wont be picking any purchases up for a while i want more retail demos … i sank alot of money into games i bought like 45+ of them on the store…

get some more demos out and more trophy support for psn games that are already released… thats all i ask for…

i remember at 1 point all we got was videos and backrounds every week… so im happy with any real update…

pudgenet said:

January 8th, 2:16 pm

Where’s the Roy Orbison pack for Rock Band?!

Biskoito said:

January 8th, 2:18 pm

Skate 2 Demo only for XBOX owners!

Stoffinator said:

January 8th, 2:18 pm

Wow weak update. Thought there be a lot more being its been like two weeks. But I guess there isn’t much to “give” this time of year with everything being out.

SantanaClaus89 said:

January 8th, 2:19 pm

This update is terrible. Sorry but it is. Give us Savage Moon please.

juuken said:

January 8th, 2:19 pm

And the whining commences.

Not a bad update. Cuboid does interest me so I may get that.

crystalx3d said:

January 8th, 2:20 pm

Would’ve liked to see something for the psp this week. Maybe a theme or some wallpaper would’ve been nice too. And as always, some ps1 classics would be great, especially a few of the classic square-enix games that japan is hoarding to itself.

ninjatuned said:

January 8th, 2:21 pm

Savage Moon please! Europe got it before X-mas. Why no love for the US?


January 8th, 2:21 pm

yes yes it does, did you expect anything less out of the loyal fans?
1 demo would have been nice.

BigRon3400 said:

January 8th, 2:22 pm

How underwhelming.

LordChocoSlime said:

January 8th, 2:22 pm

While those two new downloadable games seem interesting, I don’t own a PS3 and I don’t plan on buying one anytime soon. Also, it sucks that there’s nothing new for the PSP this week. :(

Then again, I have a couple PSP games & PS Store game downloads Including Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, God of War, Star Ocean, Yggdra Union, Puzzle Quest, and Suikoden to keep me busy for a while. :)

ChvyVele said:

January 8th, 2:24 pm

“wouldnt say dull but i want a demo for resident evil already… 360 got one what 3 weeks ago…”

No it didn’t…

As for people asking for the skate 2 demo, it’ll be out on the 15th. EA had a press release stating this.

juuken said:

January 8th, 2:24 pm

How could anyone, and I mean ANYONE not realize it was probably the holidays, the folks at Sony have families to celebrate Christmas/New Years with and maybe that’s why updates are a little lackluster?

For [DELETED] sake, be thankful for what you have!

NinjasOwn said:

January 8th, 2:24 pm

What is with all the dumb complaining. Isn’t it always kind slow around the beginning of a new year. As someone already pointed out these men and women more than deserve vacation time of there own, and for some to expect them to be working during there time off is beyond idiotic. Quite frankly anyone that shares that arrogant mentality should be ashamed of themselves.

schwaa said:

January 8th, 2:25 pm


skate 2 demo is next week


Wasn’t the RE5 demo japan only?

Lirion said:

January 8th, 2:25 pm

When the hell is Europe going to get those Naruto add-ons? I dodn’t import the game because of them, looks like I should have after all.

Please, tell your friends in Europe that there are people that own Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm here as well.

schwaa said:

January 8th, 2:25 pm

Scary how many people misinterpret N4G stories…

djspinal said:

January 8th, 2:26 pm

the red bull race is cool in home

kingv84 said:

January 8th, 2:27 pm

Great Update! Thanks.

RoAcH2285 said:

January 8th, 2:27 pm

This is not the greatest update, that’s for sure. I might be interested in the episode of Qore if you would give us more details about it.

Oh well, at least next week will be good. For those who don’t know we get the Skate 2 demo next week. It’s not 360 exclusive. I guess because of the holiday break they couldn’t get it to us this week. I don’t know.

Nito025 said:

January 8th, 2:29 pm

Horrible…hopefully not a sign for what’s in store for 09
