Lol @ all the morons above. Go pay for Xbox Live if it helps you feel any better, bunch of stupid cry babies always complaining.

there is a resistance retribution psp demo on the Uk playstation store downloaded it today at noon and loved it i know i’ll be buying it when it comes out

ivedoneyourmom said:

Wow, sure glad you guys uploaded a ton of PSOne games, oh wait, you didn’t. Once again, where is the accountability, why doesn’t Miss Chen respond to any of these message? What are you doing all week long? There are 28 Classics, that’s it? PSN launched 116 weeks ago, That’s less then once a month. I don’t think it is too much to ask to be kept in the loop at least, as a PlayStation loyalist from the beginning, I have given your company thousands of dollars. Let us know when we can give you more money!

Great FLower

Whoever is in-charge of releasing the PSX games on the PS Store should be fired or maybe SCEA needs to hire someone to go out and get these. Maybe talk to SCEJ and find out how they are doing it. Seriously get on this someone.

If I can’t download them I will have to buy used copies if I can find them and no publisher makes any money.
It may not be one person it might be a comity. Either way put some pressure on them. Japan releases PSX Classics like clock work every other week. Start with your self published titles at least.

Ok what the hell?

* *E-mail vouchers will be provided to annual subscribers. Single episode purchasers will also receive a Syphon Filter voucher via e-mail, provided that they purchase Qore Episode 09 on or before March 31.

@73 haha, you missed me!

When are we going to be getting new Avators ? I have so many friends with the same one for 2009

jipmg said:

February 12th, 4:24 pm

Oh ok im gettin the demo

John-Shooter said:

February 12th, 4:24 pm

i’ll probably get the resistance psp demo on a random account but other than that the other stuff isnt worth the bandwidth

@108 you’ll probably get the code on march 30th knowin qore… they sent my socom beta code to me like 6 days before the beta closed…

jwspiker said:

February 12th, 4:28 pm

have a 60gig ps3 that keeps turning off while playing flower.. anyone else getting this problem? goes to a flashing red light on the LED indicator, press it once, turns to solid red, press it again it turns on.. anyone else? i’d just finished the red plant too, but it didn’t save.

Anubis80 said:

February 12th, 4:32 pm

@112 if thats the case I will be highly pissed off. But thanks for your answer. I hope that someone from Sony would reply to it.


February 12th, 4:35 pm

Was in HOME today, talked to CYD, asked if public chat would ever come back? Asked if she read my Thread about it. Her answer was pretty much no. so I am done with HOME……….

I was so excited about home, then public voice chat was taken away as well as free roam through all the servers, That my dear friends made home dull and static. Sorry but the only thing that would make me want to go back is a Socom room and it will pretty much be the only reason I return. Maybe.

VenomUK said:

February 12th, 4:37 pm

I downloaded Flower today, and I’ve completed it! It’s a beautiful game, gorgeous graphics, lovely atmosphere and controls that really make use of the SixAxis controls. I just wish it were a little longer. Any DLC inbound? I would especially like a playground level with no objective except flight.

Vegaz said:

February 12th, 4:41 pm

I was really looking forward to Flower this week but it’s pretty difficult to buy with a broken PS3. :( The 360 is supposed to be the brick not the PS3! The number they gave me at the normal number is always closed too. YLoD of course.

acerazer1 said:

February 12th, 4:46 pm

I’m really glad to see Flower there, even though it’s been announced like 20 times in the past two weeks, but even so, it’s great that it’s finally official.

new motorstorm pacific rift demo should be in the new releases section as it is in the european store guys

czakhary said:

February 12th, 4:52 pm

Not bad, not bad at all.

coastermaniac said:

February 12th, 4:54 pm

umm…. just out of curiosity, what exactly were you guys expecting? This. is one of the most awesome updates in a very, very long time. What the [DELETED] were you expecting?


OT: Awesome job guys! keep up the good work.

JasonFrost said:

February 12th, 5:01 pm

I didn’t receive my email for the Syphon Filter voucher with Qore Episode 09!

Where is it?

Raiden-JPN said:

February 12th, 5:17 pm

I like Pulse way better than Qore. Plus it’s free and Christine Lee is a better host/presenter than Veronica Belmont.

iExile said:

February 12th, 5:35 pm

Where the hell my Syphon Filter e-mail? WTF?

bigbossarg said:

February 12th, 5:36 pm

Obligatory in game music from the harddrive!
is going to happen or not?
Please tell me!!

SoYoung said:

February 12th, 5:44 pm

#123 I’m agreed with you. Pulse is better, more info with games.

DPyro said:

February 12th, 6:08 pm

When are the Syphon Filter vouchers for Qore being sent out?

Sekoku said:

February 12th, 6:17 pm

Syphonfilter e-mail. NAO. The only reason I bought that crappy Qore. Get to it.


February 12th, 6:30 pm

If you are releasing a new Motorstorm PR to promote the game it seems dumb to not post it with the new content

ClinToN said:

February 12th, 6:46 pm

Great update. Gonna purchase Flower tomorrow.

Same disgusting community member responses.

sectionz said:

February 12th, 6:46 pm

Guys not having Flower in the main New Releases list is a big positioning mistake that will undoubtedly hurt the sales of that game for the casual user who is not aware of the Spring Fever promotion. I love the whole PSN Spring Fever thing but it probably won’t hurt to add it to the main list even if redundant.

KUSHman666 said:

February 12th, 7:06 pm

flower FTW that game is a perfect 10/10

jazzyrider said:

February 12th, 7:12 pm

Not bad at all…guess I’ll be purchasing a few items soon.

Vash_Nightmare said:

February 12th, 7:12 pm

Flower is genius!!
I love how PSN supports these artistic games. PSN FTW :D

Killauptown24 said:

February 12th, 7:12 pm

When is there is gonna be the killzone 2 demo ??

GGCAN said:

February 12th, 7:30 pm

Thanks…gotta download that Cuboid Theme after seeing the post about it earlier.

Terranz22 said:

February 12th, 7:31 pm

Where is my Syphon filter code? I just bought qore and also…I bought flower, can’t wait to play it.

Ldrofmn said:

February 12th, 7:34 pm

Awesome update! But I’ve got one question about the PSP store. About a year ago, there was a Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII theme for the PSP. I ended up getting a PSP 3000 model. I went to the PS Store and it wasn’t there any more. What happened to it?

Gumbydunzeeto said:

February 12th, 8:06 pm

When Flower comes out on a physical disc, I will buy it.

When might that happen?

scadur said:

February 12th, 8:12 pm


Probably it may not be released on physical disc since it is only 628 MB large if I recall correctly.

xMETATRONx said:

February 12th, 8:16 pm

I have not received the syphon filter voucher either. Probably will not come until tomorrow. Oh well, just have to play flower all night…great game.

Korbei83 said:

February 12th, 8:20 pm

Flower is really cool. I almost came into work late tonight because I couldnt put it down. Looking forward to playing more when I get home.

dllscowboysfan said:

February 12th, 8:23 pm

Pretty weak. Nothing for me.

dereileak said:

February 12th, 8:47 pm

Thanks so much for this update, the Flower Game was so worth it, it was the second thing I bought, the first thing I bought that was over 3 dollars, it was a great experience.

Cancer-fish said:

February 12th, 8:51 pm

Flower is really great

dimablo said:

February 12th, 8:55 pm

I always get my hopes up. I get on the network to see if any new PS1 games have been added for downloading, but that stopped a while ago it seems. if you think that wallpapers and themes are sweet… then you’re wrong. i would love to have a bigger game selection. you gave us… flower. wow, how thrilling.

LordChocoSlime said:

February 12th, 9:11 pm

I’m a bit surprised to see the PSP receive that much stuff this week. I just wish that some new demos and/or games were added as well. Thanks for the update nonetheless.

DustyBlue said:

February 12th, 9:25 pm

Flower is a really beautiful game. I really like these artsy types of games. Keep ’em comin’!

Nikos said:

February 12th, 9:33 pm

Kids these days don’t appreciate anything. Stop complaining because you didn’t get what you wanted. This is a great update!

Gumbydunzeeto said:

February 12th, 9:46 pm

@140 Then I guess they don’t really want my money do they?

Seriously, how hard would it be do release a Best Of PSN on disc to entice people? People who don’t have access to broadband or don’t want to buy DLC?

Come on Sony, get it together!

Physical media fans are customers too!
