Just to confirm with anyone who has downloaded FF7 or MGS and also own the original games… has the game been tweaked somehow for the PSP/PS3?

Is it the same?

Just to make sure I’m not really losing out on anything.



June 18th, 5:54 pm

I love my new 4th of July pinups.

Im gonna have to be honest I was under the impression that Fat Princess was coming this Thursday and was pretty pissed that it didnt come out. I even went and bought a PSN card so I could purchase day 1.Is there anyway we can get a solid release date for this game? Im really lookin forward to getting my hands on it.

June 18th, 6:12 pm

Ok this is what i do not get… they said it at e3 and they said it in one of the pulse video’s (5/21 i think) that fat princess will be released late this month… i dont get why they would say it was going to be released and then they just up and delay it… and its a PSN title… it was announced last year. PSN titles are usually released maybe a few weeks to a couple of months after they are announced. they had a beta and closed it and somehow they just out of nowhere find a problem a few weeks after the whole thing is over. now here is my question… like i said before you announced it at E3 and in the pulse episode that we would get it late june. so can you maybe oh i dont know… inform your consumers that ask and ask with a link on the forum or another post telling what we can maybe be expecting for the month and if a game gets delayed actually give us at least an estimated time on when the problem will be fixed or what happened???

AngleofDeath696 said:

June 18th, 6:14 pm

Seriously guy’s wtf I’ve been waiting for fat princess for months now. How many times have you delayed it? I don’t care about final fantasy or metal gear solid at all. I want is to feed my fat princess. How come New Zealand gets it this month and have to wait till maybe next month or even more global release date my *ss. Why we are always second to New Zealand screw the global release date just gives it to the people in the U.S. territory. Every week that it doesn’t come out just make me one to buy less and less so please hurry up. You’re breaking my balls Sony you’re breaking my balls.

p.s. What ever happen to “cake for everyone “

Gump_ said:

June 18th, 6:17 pm

I’m starting to believe that The Cake Was A Lie. All we are asking for is some info…

justinjohnson69 said:

June 18th, 6:19 pm

i agree with AngelofDeath696 it is pretty big BS.. but now im stuck with play KZ2 all summer (until fat princess comes out any way) =P

justinjohnson69 said:

June 18th, 6:21 pm

and its really pissing me off because they arent giving any replies whatsoever to us… its like they dont even care for us (their consumers AKA the people that they make their money off of)

Gump_ said:

June 18th, 6:22 pm

I really wish Titan Studios had a forum, maybe we could at least get some sort of update. The way it is now, we have to rely on Sony, and we all can agree Sony doesn’t do the greatest job with PR except for this Blog which is GREAT!

Patiently waits for the MGS4 trophy announcements.

justinjohnson69 said:

June 18th, 6:25 pm

yea but the only reply i have seen was on the first page thats it… they get payed for only replying to one person? a person that didnt even ask a question too.

gold5225 said:

June 18th, 6:32 pm

Wow I hate having to wait to subscribe to Qore because I already Have bowling Ill wait till next month then.

I have a question, do You know when the Fallout DLC Operation Anchorage comes out???


Errod88 said:

June 18th, 7:10 pm

No Metal Gear Solid for Austraila I really wanna play this game…

Mobstylez said:

June 18th, 7:15 pm

Thanks for MGS. Please consider Xenogears.

Patriot_Infinity said:

June 18th, 7:52 pm

Metal Gear Solid alone makes this an awesome update.

ugie45 said:

June 18th, 7:55 pm

ya i agree with all of them this is one of the worst updates ever, and WHERE IS FAT PRINCESS? sorry i just cant wait for that game:)

EOGamer said:

June 18th, 8:33 pm

Thanks for MGS, please consider Xenogears and Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain.

SeventhAxes said:

June 18th, 8:45 pm

Sweet, now I can repurchase MGS to sit on my PS3’s HDD as opposed to next to my PS3 in its case and in its Essential Collection case! Copy number three, here I come!

Hayato510 said:

June 18th, 8:46 pm

Where the hell is Cuboid DLC?… i been waitin for it and it said it was gonna come and all for a week… damn, they liiiiiiied and really sucked… might as well get it on the EU store lol… so i guess it will be out next week. :p

KINGV84 said:

June 18th, 8:49 pm

@151, Final Fantasy 7 and the other games, are pure ports of the original disc versions.

Senju_Karim said:

June 18th, 8:54 pm

Hey jeff, this is my first reply on the blog, though have been following it from the beginning. Just saying job well done and can’t wait to see how the blog will evolve in the future.

By the way, is there anyway we could get some Square Enix reps to come on the blog? I would definitely like to ask them a few questions.

Keep up the good work and didn’t get to officially say congrats on the baby thing!

Wow, Cross Edge DLC already? Awesome ^_^

faraway25 said:

June 18th, 9:20 pm

I already own GT5:P so I guess it doesn’t matter much to me but shouldn’t the greatest hits version price be 19.99. It doesn’t seem right that it’s greatest price is the same as games that was 59.99.

Isn’t the whole point of greatest hits is to move some more copies of a game that made back its cost and more by lowering the price to get the late adapters. If you only dropped it by ten then what motivates the late buyers of a preview of GT5?

DigitalMystic said:

June 18th, 9:23 pm

Consistant, new PSN game releases every week, please?

Not JUST uploads of old PS1 games we’ve all had 11 years to play and can find on eBay or in GameStop for $10, thanks.

That’s not an update or headline release for a week’s content. That’s a business strategy that you should have been leveraging by the truckload every day since the PS3 launched…

Seriously, you have this competitor called, Microsomething or other? And they put out compelling, NEW downloadable games on the same day every single week.

It’s like clockwork and has become part of my weekly budget. They want my money, just like you, Sony. You should look into this and take note. Their strategy may be working…

Instead, we get yet another NON-update with Sony delivering nothing more than a request for me to celebrate nostalgic, halcyon days. Put up or shut up. Where’s the Sony I love that conquered this industry and made it theirs?

donporoto said:

June 18th, 9:31 pm

and PS2 Classics, when?
i really want to play MGS3 and God of War I and II.

Hayato510 said:

June 18th, 9:35 pm

We need that damn Cuboid DLC already.. it didnt come out today and i was pretty damn pissed too… bought a PSN card too. :p

Better be out next week on the 25th.

I have waited for about a month and a half, for the new issue of qore. I have been a member since July 2008. All the games that they have given me for free I hve aleady purchesed. I went online tonight to see how they would make up the wait….., and they give me spyro the [DELETED] dragon. I am not 13, and I have all the games that you have sent out prior. why should I renue my subscrtion? Now, I feel that I have been cheated. you previewed inFamous, and the the frag dolls, thank you very much. [DELETED] as far as I am concered. When will QORE make sence.
One uhappy gamer.

niloc1978 said:

June 18th, 10:04 pm

there was zero mention of psp go, either. I was intersted until it was pulled from this episode. Thank you for taking my money and giving me nothing.

niloc1978 said:

June 18th, 10:08 pm

where can I complain directley to QORE?

niloc1978 said:

June 18th, 10:14 pm

I want answers. please. Why do you think we are all just sheep? Sheep are slaughtered, not me.

BigAnt18 said:

June 18th, 10:32 pm

I really didn’t care about the content in this Qore episode but then I noticed they did a Frag Doll section. Psyche is totally my favorite which made it even cooler to watch lol and the free Spyro download. Qore has basically paid for it’s self with the free downloads, great content and great host. I’ll gladly sign up for another year and look forward to future episodes.

shaddyg said:

June 18th, 10:40 pm

When Is Fat Princess coming out. Even Though i’ll have to wait because i want to buy sims 3 first


June 18th, 10:42 pm


Try complaining to Future PLC


ADR143 said:

June 18th, 10:58 pm

want FAT PRINCESS!!!!!!!!!!

BigAnt18 said:

June 18th, 11:16 pm


I feel like they left out the PSP GO content because they don’t even fully know what they’re doing yet and are still planing it out, like the UMD to digital transfer for old psp games, if they should do the whole app thing and a lot of other things. If they did put a segment in this episode about the new psp they would have repeated what we know already, it can slide, it has buttons, a built in Flash Drive, it’s going to be awesome, etc. It was delayed supposedly for the PSP content though and it does suck that it wasn’t there. O_o

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

Though this week’s update for the PSP section of the PS Store was a bit light, the addition of Metal Gear Solid easily makes up for it. It’s definitely great to finally see this PSone classic as a PS Store download in the U.S. and I’ll buy as soon as I buy another PSN Card. Thanks for the update.

syk1288 said:

June 18th, 11:34 pm

TRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH UPDATE! The worst update in history. I have like three copies of MGS. I’ll buy this one when I get the PSP GO. Other than that i give this PSS update 2 dumbs down. And I wish I had to more hands. You already know for what.

syk1288 said:

June 18th, 11:36 pm

I kind of understand. You guys must be tired from E3 and taking some off time.

“the price has been permanently reduced to $29.99 (originally $39.99)!”

zomg no way. i want this now.

Azure_Flame_Kite said:

June 18th, 11:47 pm

I only have one question.
Did they change the dialog to get Meryl’s codec number? I already know it by heart from how many times I played it (140.15) but what about the newcomers/people that forgot?

wbrinkman said:

@192: its up at Target for 9.99 (original packaging)

Keep them PS1 games coming!!

Why is there no Last Guardian trailer on the store?! I want to watch it again and again on my big a$$ TV, not my 19″ monitor!!

Thanks Sony, 4/5

GT 5 Pro price cut must be a joke, it should be 20$!

June 19th, 3:06 am

I think I’ll get this episode of Qore for Spyro. I cans recognize value.

Hopefully someone who can fulfill this request happens to read it. I want mkv support for video content. I want to watch stuff on my HDTV and not my laptop. The quality and file size is amazing. So implement mkv support with the next firmware update that you know you want to talk about in July. ;D

haha What do I know? I’m just really good at probability.
