Spring Fever: “Celebrating Exceptional Games”

LMAO! The last 3 weeks have been horrible! No Gravity is a TERRIBLE PSP game, Watchmen is an overpriced, lacluster game that can be finished in under 90 minutes, and Red Baron arcade has NO trophies and NO voice chat.

WOW! Thanks for these “exceptional games”.

skynidas said:

March 12th, 3:36 pm

Wow huge update.

Any word on Peggle, Wheel of Fortune?

spatsnaz said:

March 12th, 3:36 pm

Steve3D said:

March 12th, 3:37 pm

MrBeatdown said:

hyedrummer83 said:

March 12th, 3:38 pm

Thrasher20 said:

March 12th, 3:38 pm

Nice update!

Everyone! Biohazard 5! Tonight! Midnight launch here in Bakersfield California!

echopoint said:

Vengeful-Chaos said:

DMeisterJ said:

March 12th, 3:40 pm

Zezzler said:

March 12th, 3:41 pm

JKC31 said:

March 12th, 3:41 pm

I like to see some of those Where’s Waldo types of games on the PSN. Story, timer, list of items to find.

crazypeng1 said:

March 12th, 3:42 pm

no LBP DLC AGAIN! you can’t be serious :/

trustter said:

March 12th, 3:43 pm

Good stuff on the store. Keep it up Sony!
Now I don’t have enough time to play all the games I want to.

BlindMango said:

March 12th, 3:43 pm

JohnnyCullenBUP said:

March 12th, 3:43 pm

Bah, other then REM, this weeks Rock Band and Guitar Hero update.

I DEMAND RADIOHEAD FOR ROCK BAND OR GUITAR HERO!

:(

Still a good line-up though.

Thwip said:

March 12th, 3:43 pm

Nice update…thanx!

JohnnyCullenBUP said:

March 12th, 3:44 pm

*Bah, other then REM, this weeks Rock Band and Guitar Hero update is crap.

Phoenix8387 said:

March 12th, 3:44 pm

Wohho! A Reds theme! We’ll win the series this year! (Probably not… but I can dream!)

As always, love the support Criterion has done with Burnout and I will continue to support them.
Lots of playable content this week… I’m SO looking forward to picking up R:R next week!

Debille said:

March 12th, 3:45 pm

Any words on PS One Classics ? I wonder if the fact that new PS3 models arent retrocompatible has slowed sony to bring more PS One classics to the store . True or false ???????????

Jewdo said:

March 12th, 3:45 pm

wow, STILL no PSOne Classics

OH COME ON! WHERE IS BOMBERMAN ULTRA?

It was supposed to be out by the end of February, and here it is nearing the end of March with no release in sight! What’s going on???

ivedoneyourmom said:

March 12th, 3:47 pm

Week 11, still not so much as a single PSOne game posted this year. Great work. If you guys knew the easiest way to not make money, this is it… Yet another great Store update!

redknight4 said:

March 12th, 3:47 pm

What happened to the St Patrick’s Day dlc for Little Big Planet thats is supose to release today?

Europe and Japan have it

rxeight said:

March 12th, 3:50 pm

Yes, can’t wait to get home and try out The Chronicles of Riddick Demo. Thanks

ye11owpharmacy said:

March 12th, 3:53 pm

You offer a BYU theme before a UNLV theme? BOOOOO!!!

SalvoStorm said:

March 12th, 3:53 pm

Since you like putting TV and Movie trailers in the GAME Store, why don’t you put the Game trailers in the VIDEO Store?

So if I’m in the Video store thinking about renting Australia, but want to watch a trailer first, I should look for it in the Game store, right… yeah, that makes sense!

Zezzler said:

March 12th, 3:54 pm

@ Angdogg
you forgot like every Final Fantasy game, spyro games, and metal gear

OmegaArchetype said:

March 12th, 3:54 pm

Ummm….where in the world is Crystal Defenders? It’s on XBLA already, or is it not being released on PSN?

Bleh, where’s our increased PS1 selection? You guys are failing hard by not adding any.

Kowatenchi05 said:

March 12th, 3:54 pm

So much for LBP this week…

Atomika14 said:

March 12th, 3:55 pm

Where’s the LBP Killzone 2 stuff? :(

KSPRAYDAD said:

March 12th, 3:56 pm

@31 Debille…

All PS3 models can play PS1 games.

OmegaArchetype said:

March 12th, 3:56 pm

Okay, forget about Crystal Defenders, still, my comment about the PSone games still stands. As of now you guys are at Epic Fail status for the lack of increased titles.

Hope you guys rectify the situation, and quickly.

KSPRAYDAD said:

March 12th, 3:57 pm

@40…it is available in ‘other’ PSN stores so I’m sure it won’t be long…

TwinDad said:

March 12th, 3:58 pm

LBP. No ST Paddies day sackboy?

Demos, thank you.

Did the PS1 die already?

jqtaxpayer said:

March 12th, 3:59 pm

Agreed… where is Bomberman Ultra? It was supposed to release in 2008 and then I recently heard early March… its absence is very disappointing.

That being said, I’ll be hitting the links with Sackboy this week. Thanks again, Chris, wherever you are! I’m also hoping to try out that Legends of Wrestling game… not to show my white-trashness or anything.
