Ok what is with you guys and wanting trophies for every game thats out in 2009 or 2008.

When will we get Metal Gear Solid original PS1 game? Other than that, great update!

Brobs002 said:

January 29th, 5:51 pm

I read an article not too long ago about how the PSP is pretty much dead. I think whoever wrote the article did pretty well at predicting the future of the PSP. It’s pretty disappointing that no games have been added recently that are any good (besides Suikoden) other than the PSP, the updates for the PS3 are good. RIP Sony PSP

January 29th, 5:51 pm

Woah, cheaper Burnout? I may jsut end up having to get that…especially if they do end up putting planes in it like the rumours were saying.

Killzone 2 Demo next week!!!
Where is are RE5 Demo? (next week) not bad!

Lokiroo420 said:

Worse and worse every week. Sony you have now wasted an entire months worth of sales, high five. Talk about a bunch of lazy ass people, your about the only people in the world still on holiday.

iNexxFear said:

January 29th, 6:02 pm

I don’t think it’s fair that PSN or the vendor repackages songs that have already been distributed in a earlier track pack for the music games…

I have just found out that in November 2008 GH World Tour released 3 of the songs included in the latest track pack. If you downloaded these you are ineligible for the new track pack, and have to forfit the extra $$ to get the add-ons!

So owners and fanatics of Guitar Hero, TAKE NOTE of this one!

Lokiroo420 said:

January 29th, 6:06 pm

Sad, sorry and pathetic, 1 month down jack to show for it. Holiday still going for scea, must be nice. Is it that none of you have a clue or is it that you just dont care? Make sure not to reply just to show how pathetic it has become!

Lokiroo420…No one knows what you’re talking about. This is why you’ll get no reply. :|

See this is why people have custom firmware PSP’s. It’s because Sony doesn’t support the damn thing.

January 29th, 6:25 pm

great update guys! loving all this free content btw.



January 29th, 6:26 pm

Thanks for the Groundhog Day Sackboy costume.

Might make a Bday level that predicts spring or more winter…

January 29th, 6:34 pm

Great Update!! It’s nice to be excited again.

Tell the guys over at capcom to hurry with that patch for SF Remix that they are working on.

January 29th, 6:44 pm

dappaute said:

January 29th, 6:51 pm

disappointing update no resident evil demo, what gives?

John-Shooter said:

January 29th, 6:55 pm

it would be nice to see some of those ps1 classics that were supposed to be rolling out that we heard about about a month ago too… maybe a list of games that are coming or in the works…

and yea are there any more games that were gonna be blu-ray/downloadable releases like warhawk/socom/burnout?..

John-Shooter said:

January 29th, 6:58 pm

both resident evil 5 and killzone 2’s demo are feb 5th i forget the article links that announced it..

Wait wait wait, $7.49 for the filming stuff in skate 2??? I understand charging for extra storage space, but for extra camera controls that should have been there in the first place is kind of absurd…

I totally agree! If this is the direction DLC is heading I will stop buying games all together. Shame on you Sony and EA, for making us pay for something that should have been included in the game from day one!

Pinoy360 said:

January 29th, 7:21 pm

Great update so far. Let’s see some more LUMINES Supernova DLC!!

Exodus_Lang said:

January 29th, 7:25 pm

If you don’t have Burnout, get it NOW. Fantastic game, fantastic dev. support, and the price is more than right now.

LvL99Dayvie said:

January 29th, 7:27 pm

dewey144 said:

January 29th, 7:32 pm

Hey. Will we ever get Fallout 3 DLC? Or is that a big no since Microsoft owns the rights?

RONIN342 said:

January 29th, 8:07 pm

AntDaGamer said:

January 29th, 8:18 pm

basically its ridiculous that we didn’t get Resident Evil 5 Demo just flat out RIDICULOUS! May I ask why? I seriously doubt you guys have a good reason.

Great update, Grace. Thanks

Good store update, just wishing Beejewled 2 was half the price, haha

Thank you after I saw Burnout go to 20 everywhere else I’ve been waiting for it to drop on PSN. Will be dling this weekend:D

I posted and forgot to mention that i appreciate the update. It was one solid update this week :-)

Thrasher20 said:

January 29th, 9:18 pm

Thank you. Great update

Jeigh said:

January 29th, 9:39 pm

By the way, while we’re dropping prices, would it be possible to do that for Go! Sudoku. I’d like to grab it, but it’s been out since launch yet still has a pricing scheme I’m not really up for. Certainly doesn’t seem like it’s even in the same league as Go! Puzzle, which to this day is my proudest purchase off of PSN at $6 for three games.

Love the Brain Challenge bundle, by the way. Going to try it out on my PSP tomorrow.

Great update! :D

willxcore said:

January 29th, 9:58 pm

The European update included a downloadable version of Buzz Master Quiz directly from the PSN. The European store also has Patapon available in the same way. I eventually broke down and bought Patapon and I do want Buzz but I would much MUCH rather these games be accessible from a memory stick. I don’t want to switch UMDs all the time nor do I want to carry so many with me at once. Please US Store, consider releasing more full games on the PSN.

ShatteredRaven77 said:

Whatever happened to the Fallout 3 DLC???

darkspectre said:

January 29th, 10:55 pm

sweet. but you know what needs an immense update? AVATARS!

January 30th, 1:19 am

Why is the PSP not getting any love from you guys?

Where are the UMD legacy games?

Where are the PS1 games?

Don’t you want my money?!

January 30th, 1:38 am

i hope they add the nariiko costume the same way as the gow pack since that is the only one i don’t have yet.

Pandor27 said:

January 30th, 2:32 am

Hello, Nice update. (buyed savage moon) but i would really loved if you put suikoden 2 in next update. By the way, i dont know where to say that but message board in canada french kinda in maintenance for last 4 month, will it be back up at one point?

Tuomo666 said:

January 30th, 4:46 am

All the contents of PS store are awesome in my opinion :)

Gunwing said:

January 30th, 5:05 am

I have to agree with most PSP owners right now the PSP store is vary lacking in downloads right now Demos, and add on content, as well as new themes, and preview videos.

Right now the new Nintendo DSi has more content up right now then we do. On top of that Nintendo is supporting their hand held vary well unlike Sony. We did at one time have a good stream of PSone games, and a few PSP game Demos now and then but sadly it seems the PSP has gotten the Ax while the PS3 gets all the goodies!
