April 2nd, 2:10 pm

ynp7 said:

April 2nd, 2:10 pm

All of these games with offline co-op only are really disappointing.

Destiny89 said:

April 2nd, 2:10 pm

Thank you for the R&C trailer :)

CrimsonFox13 said:

April 2nd, 2:11 pm

Hm, I’ll be downloading Qore and Killzone 2’s Behind the Bullet!

TCO said:

April 2nd, 2:11 pm

in regards to qore…just a question…i have been an annual subscriber since day 1 and purchased both High Velocity Bowling and Linger in Shadows almost when they both first came out…is there any chance of offering substitute games to those who already have them…i have always wanted to try games like flower or savage moon but there is no demo…but with a free voucher for these im sure i would love them..just kinda discourages people from buying them if they have a qore subscription cause they may get them free in the future

SPOPS said:

April 2nd, 2:11 pm

Wow, small update.

CrimsonFox13 said:

April 2nd, 2:12 pm

Lol XD

I thought I’d be like 4th or something, but I turned out to be 7th. Some people are quicker at entering.

davivman said:

April 2nd, 2:12 pm

I’m feeling like some patapon costumes may be in my future. :)

jazzyrider said:

April 2nd, 2:12 pm

Yes we need some MM level packs. Not that I don’t like the user-created levels but somehow MM seems to add something extra that user levels don’t have.

Tr3p1dat10n said:

April 2nd, 2:13 pm

Any chance of you keeping the updates this early? Not having to wait another 3 hours is nice :)

Tondog said:

April 2nd, 2:14 pm

Let the complaining begin. :(

Thanks for the free Qore and KZ2 behind the scenes thingy!

eghostx80 said:

April 2nd, 2:15 pm

oh well, not the best week. Peace

StalkingSilence said:

April 2nd, 2:16 pm

Interesting update… no major surprises which means the blog did a good job of covering this week. Or does it mean there’s not too much content? Would like to see more (read: better) PSP digital releases. I’m not getting much this week, which is actually rare as most weeks I buy a new game.

kingmuscle said:

April 2nd, 2:16 pm

thank you sony you guys have really been on the ball. i am trully appretiative for all of your hard work.

lcmnick said:

April 2nd, 2:16 pm

Rating on this is going to tank lol

DMeisterJ said:

April 2nd, 2:17 pm

Look at all the PS1 games!



April 2nd, 2:17 pm

Well, I guess there’s another 30 Thursday’s to look forward to… Please bring us something good!

April 2nd, 2:20 pm

I got the tower game. It’s my PSN crack (I have all the tower games… cant get enough of em). However, you guys really need to put some demos out. Or heck, suprise us once a week with a “trophy patch for old X game coming soon”.

PatriotEyez27 said:

April 2nd, 2:20 pm

Behind the Bullet and Qore 11

Only downloading those.

brighat2007 said:

April 2nd, 2:21 pm

I can’t complain about seeing Veronica Belmont on my T.V. for free.

Moosehole said:

April 2nd, 2:21 pm

Pretty weak update if I may say so…

I would like the RE5 DLC, Valkyria Chronicles DLC, and SOME FRIGGIN PS1 CLASSICS PLEASE! AND NOT CRAP LIKE 2XTREME! RESIDENT EVIL 1,2,and 3!

Homer-BY said:

April 2nd, 2:21 pm

Guys What about new PS3 Eye games?

skynidas said:

April 2nd, 2:21 pm

Cool update, I might buy Comet Crash, It depends if the reiews are good or not….Next week will be awesome

jipmg said:

April 2nd, 2:21 pm

no 3rd party content at all?

that 16 cent thing is starting to affect the updates.

lupo617 said:

April 2nd, 2:22 pm

weak !!!! :(

whiteboykyle said:

April 2nd, 2:22 pm

In the words of Borat.
“Verrrdy nice!”.

unstablefears said:

April 2nd, 2:23 pm

No demo’s this week either? T_T. Thank goodness for Qore I guess.

yoeun88 said:

April 2nd, 2:24 pm

sure wish they’d actually keep their promise and put some PS1 games in the store

Wild_Man_X said:

April 2nd, 2:24 pm

Why is it that whenever you can purchase three individual items for 99 cents each (such as the Spongebob Rock Band songs), you guys group them together for $2.99? That makes no sense.

KazeEternal said:

April 2nd, 2:25 pm

Sponge bob….. are you guys serious…. Give us the FF7:Advent Children version of One Winged Angel if Harmonix is going to venture into the obscure here. Perhaps maybe other material from The Black Mages. Sponge Bob is just night right.

krlowz said:

April 2nd, 2:26 pm

does anybody know if theres more add ons coming for naruto UNS

x_NiiGHTMARE_x said:

April 2nd, 2:26 pm

This store update is weak… Nothing good at all, not even the Qore episode sounds good… oh well maybe next week…

sNsKid said:

April 2nd, 2:27 pm

I guess I better get to downloading.

Ftwrthtx said:

April 2nd, 2:28 pm

Nice update

Darnell0216 said:

April 2nd, 2:28 pm

Mid-range update. Not the best but not bad either. Thankfully I’m a Qore subscriber so I get at least one demo this week.

mixedkidbx said:

April 2nd, 2:28 pm

really boring update….

philixus said:

April 2nd, 2:28 pm

weak update

katsuo7171 said:

April 2nd, 2:29 pm

No demos last week none this week. Don’t you think this has something to do with ther .16 per GB download you are charging publishers?

djspinal said:

April 2nd, 2:29 pm

What happened to the Floodgates, do we need a bigger wrench?…

feelmuhpino said:

April 2nd, 2:30 pm

OK, I’m just going to give up on Crystal Defenders coming to the US PS3.. it seems that we have a better chance of seeing FF13 than seeing Crystal Defenders anytime soon.

dulcediana said:

April 2nd, 2:31 pm

lately we are having kinda dissapointed things…bad week for us sony fans …but at least great year with the exclusives.

katsuo7171 said:

April 2nd, 2:31 pm


no there are no more downloads coming to the PSN store it ended with the sound 4 characters

luiginut said:

April 2nd, 2:31 pm

Damn, I was expecting a GH: Metallica demo after the 360 got one. :( Oh well. Granted, me liking GH:M would probably lead to me selling KZ2 to get it (talk about an unbearable online community >_>). Free Qore is nice, since it’s not worth the $3 it normally costs. Even though I’ve seen the MW2 teaser, I’m downloading that. I liked it, and it’s not like I’m about to run out of space (still have about 160GB free, lol).

I might go grab a PSN card so I can grab Journey Rock Band DLC and hold the rest for Fat Princess.

Decent update. :)

April 2nd, 2:32 pm

Wheres BOMBERMAN?? I thought it was going to be released WINTER 09, it’s spring already??

DonnyG said:

April 2nd, 2:32 pm

@42 Probably has more to do with the fact that not too many big titles are dropping this week or next.

hife said:

April 2nd, 2:32 pm

Getting these updates out early lately.
