If you dont have broadband, why do you have PS3? We’re talking about 628 MB here.. not even a full CD.

You can’t even take advantage of a stand-alone blu-ray player without internet access. How did you even access this blog?

I’m a proponant of physical media as much as the next guy, in terms of non-platform specific content. We’re talking about downloading PS3 content via your PS3. Are you planning on playing Flower on your Game Boy or something? Or maybe your cellphone?

For $10, its not even worth the argument. Hell, I have to pay tax on that $10 and Im still not complaining.

where are all our PS1 games that are “suppose” to be coming this year. You keep saying that and now almost 2 months later still not one has shown its face.

OmegaArchetype said:

February 12th, 11:05 pm

Don’t get me wrong guys, I do enjoy the fact that you guys bring unique exclusive titles to PSN, but is it seriously that difficult to get some PS1 games on there?

I mean, I’d buy all kinds of stuff that I don’t own on disc (such as RE 1-3, Parasite Eve, Legend of Dragoon {eventhough I do own LoD on disc,}and many other great games.)

Of course most aren’t in your control, but is there any way you guys could get some of your 1st party titles, and hopefully persuade or encourage other devs to get their PS1 games on there.

I’ve been downloading themes like crazy :-D I have cuboid now as theme and saw I forgot a whole bunch of free, amazing stuff for on my screen. The Flower is like the game very beautiful, I hope more Flower themes will follow.

Speaking of themes, is it just me but I can’t find any Linger in Shadows theme on the store :-?

nemo20000 said:

Flower is so incredibly awesome.

I don’t know whether I’m more impressed by Killzone2 or Flower – honestly. How many blades of grass?!

Isn’t PSN wonderful?

hyperslug said:

February 13th, 3:39 am

When will we get some more ps1 games? RE 1-3, metal gear and other good stuff?! and in europe too!

Korbei83 said:

February 13th, 4:14 am

From Flower’s XMB background:

‘Tilt the controller to soar. Press any button to blow wind. Relax, enjoy.”

Seriously? Is ‘blow wind’ the best phrase you could come up with? The ‘Relax, enjoy’ just punctuates it…

MidnightBlues said:

February 13th, 5:43 am

I am not giving up on lbp please give me some add on content like the mgs levels…please it will add so much to the game….just some levels a few new items and some trophies and I will buy it!!!

dont leave me hanging!

Gunwing said:

February 13th, 5:55 am

Thanks for a bit more PSP content! Also in the future is there any chance that third party developers will make themes/wallpapers for their PSP Exclusive games for the PSP system only? IE it’s vary nice that Sony is giving out more content and the demo last time was a big help to get people into the system more.

This update while it has no demos has much more to offer then most PSP updates. It’s nice to see them growing in size as the year goes on keep up the good work!

bigdaddyjane said:

February 13th, 6:20 am

AWESOME UPDATE!Flower should be a pretty enjoyable game and i’m looking forward to mlb 09 so i’m going to down load QORE.

nefertis24 said:

February 13th, 6:21 am

flower is beautiful, so alluring so relaxing sony Im hungry for more flower content.

AGQ0105 said:

February 13th, 6:27 am

Too bad sales are so low… with all this good stuff coming out month after month. It brings tears to my eyes.

Midgetguy said:

February 13th, 7:14 am

This was a GREAT update!

Flower is now my favorite PSN title!!!!

jwspiker said:

February 13th, 7:20 am

bought ready to give up on my PS3, 60 gig just doesnt’ like this game, would be nice if others would post problems they’re having, if they are. if it’s the game or my ps3 would be nice to know.

YakuzaJoe88 said:

February 13th, 7:54 am

MY GAWD…..has everyone forgotten that Nobi Nobi Boy was supposed to have come out yesterday?! Yeah – the game from the guy who made Katamari Damacy.

So, what’s up, Sony henchmen?

BahaFS said:

February 13th, 8:03 am

Nobi Nobi Boy was delayed to next week. They announced this last month. It’ll be $5 and have trophies so relax everybody.

lecrapper said:

February 13th, 8:38 am

man I wish my PoS3 didn’t brick this weekend… that sucks! $600 down the tube and sony tells me to give them more money or else… forget that! too bad I won’t be buying any software now, probably like the hundreds of others who’s PS3 gave them the yellow light of death

houyx said:

February 13th, 9:27 am

About Pulse and Christina Lee…. it seems like Sony is getting smarter.

In the most recent episode of Pulse, they seem to be putting less emphasis on Christina and more emphasis on the actual content that’s new to PSN (that’s the purpose of Pulse!).

In the latest episode of Pulse, the video begins with sort of an overview of the content in the episode (a good change). Also, in some parts Christina is made a little smaller….. pretty soon she’ll just be a virtual avatar and then just a jpeg of her face….haha.

Spyroluver88 said:

February 13th, 9:54 am

I have to add my voice to the people asking for PSX games on the PSP store. I can’t imagine why we have so few while Japans PSN has a TON of PSOne classics. I would understand if they had a few more than us but come on. And then all we keep hearing is soon. Maybe you should consider a team to just work on getting these titles out on the PSP store.

darkwing75 said:

February 13th, 10:37 am

great stuff!!!

SillySprout said:

February 13th, 11:36 am

My PS3 also received the Yellow Fault Light whilst playing Flower. I was really enjoying the game, and hope that it’s a coinsidence that a few PS3s seem to have died whilst playing this game.

jwspiker said:

February 13th, 12:09 pm

well, i’m going to try to put my original 60 gig back in the ps3, ( may not be able to fit all the data on it), and see if it’s my new 320 gig or if it’s the ps3. I really don’t want to give up my 60 gig. Farcry 2 freezes on me as does CoD:WaW

neorudemovement said:

February 13th, 1:49 pm

grabbed flower last night.

AMAZING! so glad i bought this

Bruno911 said:

February 13th, 7:00 pm

um just a question… I saw Flowers on pulse and I don’t get what is the game. Is it just like exploring fields full of flowers during the whole game? Oh yeah one last thing… for all you playstation network users-> XD download resident evil 5 demo it’s great

Terranz22 said:

February 13th, 9:28 pm

Ok where is my Syphon filter code, come on Sony, please.

lobotomies4free said:

February 14th, 2:31 am

Any chance Flower will get the same kind of expansion pack treatment that Flow got?

Maybe a downloadable soundtrack?

Loonknight said:

February 14th, 2:36 am

I also have not received my code for Syphon Filter. and as an annual subscriber I already I missed out on the resistence 2 beta, which was fine with me since I already was picking up the game. But I’ll be damned if I miss out on this opportunity.

Any information Sony would be nice.

Rhonlore said:

@90: SalvoStorm

As far as I can tell, they release those things in the game store because not all people have access to the Video Store. Canadians like myself for example.

HelselC said:

February 14th, 4:42 am

they look nice

hpfan09 said:

February 14th, 8:57 am

I wish that more classic PlayStation One games would be added. One that immediately comes to mind would be Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Gunwing said:

February 14th, 9:20 am

I think there are a number of PSone games that need to be on PSP/PS3:

Final Fantasy VII

Legend of dragoon

Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Gex: Enter the gecko

Mega Man: X/X2 (both killer side scrolling platformers/shooters)

Dynasty Warriors (The original game as it was on the PSone complete with the monsters and old style cutsceens)

Sadly most of the more cult hit PSone games were made by Atari and Midway both of witch are no longer around (Midway just declared bankruptcy!)

So that means the number of games that both companies can give a license to Sony to convert to the PSP/PS3 has dropped to only a hand full from Capcom, and Kioe.

JohnnyCasanova said:

February 15th, 7:23 am

JohnnyCasanova said:

JellyJugs said:

February 17th, 12:38 pm

I will never buy Qore again. Its a complete rip off! They promise you a voucher and never send it. So they can go **** themselves for all I care now.

LoBridge said:

February 17th, 2:46 pm

According to Joystiq the codes will be e-mailed “on or before March 31” so it may be a while yet…

Terranz22 said:

February 17th, 8:45 pm

If I Don’t get my Syphon filter code by the 31st then I would have been ripped off. I mean I got the newsletter reminding me about the Syphon filter code but I still haven’t gotten mine and I bought it day 1.


February 18th, 5:42 pm

I love my Anime MBM theme…just .99 cents

LoBridge said:
