Can you please start putting the PS3 game demos at the top of the list?

    Yes, we can do that :)

StalkerD said:

April 30th, 3:28 pm

No single player option for MvsC2, greeeeeeeat. To get a demo such as this one, i’d rather not get any demo at all. Capcom and it’s stupid ideia of multiplayer demos, Lost Planet, Bionic Commando and now this. Thanks for nothing.

mafecto said:

April 30th, 3:29 pm

These past few updates have sucked.

Sony, what’s going on?

lebronjc said:

April 30th, 3:30 pm

I was super excited to download MvsC since the announcement but, not anymore, what a waste, WTF, no single player, are the people at capcom that brain dead. Unless they plan on charging $5 to unlock this demo for single player next week (it’ll be like a reverse RE5 debacle). super LAME!

makyengo said:

April 30th, 3:30 pm

Hi, everyone! I really like this update. I’m about to download the Killzone 2 Downloadable Maps, Disgaea 3 DLC, and the MvC 2 Demo. However, I really wish SCEA would give us more PS One games! The Japanese playstation store has so many awesome PS One games, but we have only one or two good ones. Why doesn’t SCEA realize that we want more PS One games! If Sony is waiting for E3 to start rolling out the PS One games then they are waiting too long!

ROBUST UPDATE. Thanks Grace!

tirminyl said:

April 30th, 3:40 pm

I have never had a demo that was so worthless.

Capcom/Backbone: Excellent idea of including a 2player only demo. It just so happens that those that have never played MvC2 and do NOT have a 2nd controller will not be able to get past the menu screen. Rock on!

Spartancloud said:

April 30th, 3:42 pm

Looks like another great update, I’m don’t think I’ll be getting the DLC pack for Killzone 2, I would have if it came out earlier but being a trophy whore can really ruin certain games.

Sigmakan said:

April 30th, 3:44 pm

I’d like this PSOne games:

Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy Anthology
Tenchu Stealth Assassin
Metal Gear Solid
Chrono Cross
Resident Evil Directors cut
Resident Evil 2
Resident Evil 3 Nemesis
Silent Hill
Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver

Gr00v3r06 said:

Needs more PSone games. I have money that could be in your pocket if you would just release some PSone games. By you I mean SCEA.

Other than that great demos.

ddydydy said:

April 30th, 3:53 pm

What?!We’re getting the Patapon 2 demo NOW?!?! I thought we got that ages ago! Then what the hell have I playing?!

LordChocoSlime said:

April 30th, 3:55 pm

[This post ONLY refers to this week’s PS Store for PSP Update.]

Wow, that Patapon 2 demo & theme sound cool! I’ll download both of them in a bit. Thanks for the update.


April 30th, 3:56 pm

Cops and Robbers also has cop versions of all 33 Paradise cars. Too bad the servers are down.

NeoHumpty said:

April 30th, 3:56 pm

Thanks for the update. Ummm…any news on Bomberman, though? Guess I’ll buy cops and robbers, instead, but really looking forward to introducing my girlfriend to some bombing action.

Mr_Saturn said:

April 30th, 4:07 pm

I hope they let you assign R2 and L2 to 3 punch and 3 kick. If not I think I’ll stick with the ps2 version :/.

JDoObS said:

April 30th, 4:09 pm

great list on the ps1 games guys let me just add dino crises 1 and 2 to that… everyday u get lamer and lamer, i dont know whats going on with u guys over there but this has got to stop…for now on when i buy ps3 games they will only be used from gamestop so u dont see a single penny of my money because it seems like u dont want my money anyway….i dont get it how is it possible that i feel that the 360 is such a better system then the ps3 meanwhile it broke on me 5 times…oh i know why because they give the costumers what they want…u should try it some time…every week people cry about what they want and it never happends and sony is so rude that they cant even repley to tell anybody why they cant have what they want….so now i turn off my ps3 and go play my 360 a real gaming console…pathetic losers!!!

Only good things were the MvC2 demo, and the BP C&R pack.

morris1129 said:

April 30th, 4:23 pm

Marvel vs Capcom demo was the worst demo ever. I am still going to buy the game when it comes out because I use to play the game in the arcades and on other systems so I know how to play the game. I just wish it was a single player demo. I already deleted it because i am not going to go out and buy another controller to play a demo. This is my first one rating for a update and i hope it is my last one rating.

InfinitiProject said:

April 30th, 4:27 pm

Street Fighter II HD Remix Beta DID IN FACT have an online mode, limited to 2 selectable characters! What the **** are you talking about?

It’s a clear sign that you DID NOT have the beta when it was available on Xbox Live.

fail fanboy failed.

DarkAkatosh said:

April 30th, 4:28 pm

I wish I could give a 0 rating…this update is pretty much tripe.

JR2576 said:

April 30th, 4:29 pm

I enjoy the ps1 classics as much as the next guy.. but they are classics. They were great for there time/era. I just dont understand the demand for them now. It also never fails that a large majority of people always have something bad to say about the psn store updates. I take the DLC as it comes, sure some weeks i buy more then others. But any additional support for any games, or new games is great. So everyone should be happy they are gettin something. Remember on ps1/ps2 when there was no psn store. Just cant satisfy everyone. Keep up the good job guys at sony and the Blog.

What happened to the Spring PSN game fever. I want The Punisher game.

ThreeLeggedFreak said:

April 30th, 4:36 pm

Wow MvC2 demo is worthless, why can’t you have a single match against the CPU? This update just turned from “We have one good thing for you today” to “This is one of the worst updates of the year”

Dante43 said:

April 30th, 4:41 pm

That Marvel Vs Capcom 2 demo was pure crap, you only play multiplayer offline, you cant play single player mode nor online, [DELETED] adn waste of time.

TimesTrae said:

April 30th, 4:41 pm

I would reown ALOT of PSOne games if they were availible. My list strangely enough has all of the PSOne games mentioned so far pluuuus:

Parasite Eve Series [My fist playstation died on the first boss and never saw the game again!]
Star Ocean: Second Story
Xenogears (to reiterate)
Breath of Fire III
Chrono Cross
Legend of Dragoon
Beyond the Beyond
Saga Frontier
Grandia (since you read this far)
FFVII (b/c it deserves to be said again)

OverlordLaharl said:

April 30th, 4:43 pm

Peoples are complaining about ps1… because they want something to compensate the lack of truly epic ps3 title.

Always been a playstation lover, but none of the current ps3 title are on the same level of fun/entertainment as some game on the ps1.

Look at the name of the game people want… 80% are what? RPG of course! Because they are none available on the Ps3. People also want RPG this generation you know… not just shooter.

This week’s PSN Store Update score: 2/11

SkyNet003 said:

April 30th, 4:49 pm

F**k you Capcom. Are you thinking all of us are nuts about multiplayer? Some of us don’t give a crap about playing with others, local or not.

Nobody in my house gives a damn about videogames (who the heck am i supposed to play with?); and even if the thing was indeed online (which is not), I’m not going to get beaten the crap out by ppl who gets their skills by playing all freaking day.

F**k you Capcom; this demo can’t suck hard enough.

SkyNet003 said:

April 30th, 4:56 pm

I expected as much. Bring it on, then. And the demo still sucks.

gus_xl said:

April 30th, 5:18 pm

I’m happy that the MvC2 demo is out. I’d be even more happy if I could actually PLAY THE GAME. Way to make a lonely guy feel more lonely.

ExcelKnight said:

April 30th, 5:20 pm

Right, what DID happen to that game?

djth3pp said:

April 30th, 5:21 pm

I rushed home from work today to download the MvsC2 demo and then realize I can’t even play it by myself? WTF?

TheRomanShowman said:

April 30th, 5:22 pm

MVC 2 is pretty useless. I’m still happy the game is coming this summer but the demo was a bit of a let down. The graphics were a let down as well. It would have been great if they gave it the HD Remix treatment. Also, I’m pretty sure the original version had ‘Medium’ Kick/Punch..this one doesn’t.
If it weren’t for this game being such a classic it would be a flop of a re-release.

Bring back..

Marvel vs Capocom
X-men vs Street Fighter
(which ever one(s) had Thanos and apocalypse as last bosses)
Capom vs SNK 2 would be cool too

Schmeidenkamp said:

April 30th, 5:25 pm

‘Ok guys give these people what they want! A Marvel vs Capcom 2 Demo!…. that they cant play unless they call a friend!’

Schmeidenkamp said:

April 30th, 5:28 pm

Can you guys drop the price of the BioShock add on content so I can buy it? $10 bucks is a little much.

Can movies be cheaper to rent as well?

Update the avatars,

Disko said:

April 30th, 5:42 pm

Any news on Bomberman Ultra yet? Anything at all? Please?

sprice25 said:

April 30th, 5:47 pm

I wish to see these PSone games on PSN:

– Metal Gear Solid
– Tony Hawks Pro Skater
– Crash Team Racing

Agreed, if Sony is waiting until E3, they are waiting too long. Hopefully there will be PS2 games on PSN soon and a firmware update to allow PS2 backward compatibility on systems that do not have the hardware. The PSP2 would be sweet if you can download PS2 games from PSN… that would be awesome.

April 30th, 5:50 pm

MVC2 demo was such a tease. Luckily I still have my Dreamcast copy around. Can’t wait for the full release.

Please don’t speak for us, that has absolutely nothing to do with the reason that I want more PSOne titles on PSN. If anything the Quality of PS3 titles out at any given time (outside of the first year) has far exceeded that of the PS1. Just in the Last year alone I’ve purchased more PS3 games than I have in a years time on any other PlayStation, I think that says something about PS3.

Problem is games are 60 dollars, there is a catalog of games they can sell to me for 5 games that I have not played or have played and want on PSP and there is no reason for them not to make them available to me.

sNsKid said:

April 30th, 6:14 pm

Please don’t ever allow a company to put a crap demo like MvC2 in the PS Store!

The game looks nice and the final product will be awesome I’m sure, but the MvC2 demo = epic fail.

The_X_Factor_9 said:

April 30th, 6:22 pm

I’m usually the first to defend you guys from the hate that is posted on these forums, but seriously guys…this Marvel vs. Capcom 2 demo is seriously lacking…A one week on-line multiplayer demo would’ve been better than this in my opinion. Hell if you had a single player demo with Ryu and Wolverine as the only characters, that would’ve been better too…Shame…

eLCucuy83 said:

April 30th, 6:25 pm

When I saw MVC2 I felt jealous cuz I would’t feet special cuz I have MVC2 on disc for ps2 and can actually play it on my backwards compatible ps3. But then I saw that it’s not online and I didn’t feel so jealous anymore lol, just wish mine had HD graphics =/ Nice try Sony but not good enough!

NeoHumpty said:

April 30th, 6:27 pm

Let’s forget the ps1 games. You can get them on the internet for WAY cheaper than they will charge here, anyway. Plus, it almost feels like playing atari now. Maybe some ps2 games, though, for very little more.

metaltorch said:

April 30th, 6:27 pm

will they ever but any classic playstation rpgs like legend of dragoon or any final fantasy
