I love the TV Commercial, ca we get the other Commercials to PSN as well?

Yeay more Brutal :D

Nice update.

Would like some more Dynamic Themes and avatar in the future :D

Damn everyone complains on here over any little thing! People made a big stink about Dissidia not being on the PSN since it came out on retail, now its out and people complain about the price…Sony doesn’t make the price point for third party titles, the third party publisher is in charge of that so go complain to Square-Enix. Everyone is dying for Resident Evil 2…I won’t lie, I’m waiting for it too BUT you people HAVE to be patient.

Anyway, Grace…
Good update this week! I will definitely be picking up Gex and Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC.

November 5th, 6:08 pm

FIX THE PRICES!!! bust your sales!!!

Seriously guys you have to do something about the PSP prices, I know how much it cost but you are trying to win the double from old games and for new games trying to get the same amount from the UMD, not buying one single PSP game till developers come to their senses well at least not digitally and yes that means no PSP GO!

Okay… so Motorstorm has been out for how long? And NOW a demo is available?

What the hell?

tylerdurden30 said:

November 5th, 6:34 pm

Damn good update! everyone is so excited about Dissidia but I am so happy to see Ghostbusters on the PSP! Oh Jak and Daxter is freaking great!. Great update Sony! My GO is now happy.

extrovertic1 said:

November 5th, 6:36 pm

(my first post on here)

well well well. Week after week I come here hoping to see whats been missing these past 2 years Resident evil ps1 classics and another “big” exclusive PSN game. Like y’all did with Rachet and clank quest for booty. Maybe a spin-off on Uncharted? A small god of war level that features a diff character? You know just something diff. that you never see from the “big dogs”. :-)

extrovertic1 said:

November 5th, 6:40 pm

about this update? Its ok, I’m glad you guys put demos out for most of these games that help me decide what game I want to get.

I suggest get some COD MW2 themes or something in there it needs some love on the ps3, the way its advertise you would think its a 360 game c’mon sony let the ps3 shine and more of the battlefield PSN beta exclusives is something good.

sorry for cramin’ all these words in lol.


November 5th, 6:45 pm

Dear PSN:

Why are there virtually NO video previews for games and demos. You have the functionality to offer this…please do.

I won’t buy a mini or a PSN game if I can’t even see a video of it in motion…and I should be able to do this from within the store.

Please make it mandatory.

KazeEternal said:

November 5th, 6:45 pm

Thank namco for the Tekken 6 themes ^^.

:( No final fantasy VIII this week.

BigDaddyD-Mac said:

November 5th, 6:47 pm

Yet another lame update, get on the ball sony!
What about RE2&3, or any other great PS1 classics? Gex? Really?!? Thats what we get??
You guys are on a roll putting out games nobody wants. At this rate, When can I expect Mortal Kombat Special Forces??

Izodius said:

November 5th, 6:52 pm

$39.99 for Dissida? $27 on Amazon. Really Sony it’s like you don’t want DD to work. Also Xenogears.

lobotomies4free said:

November 5th, 6:52 pm

thank you so much for the screenshot feature in Qore. Keep it coming

Stealth1986 said:

November 5th, 6:54 pm

Yes, Finally! Dissidia! I’ve been waiting for This! Now, can’t wait for Portable Ops, Portable Ops Plus, FFVIII, and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions!

Gamil said:

November 5th, 6:59 pm

For the size of the download, the amount of video, and the quality of the video, I always think that the Qore releases are too big.

Plus, it loads so freaking slowly!!! why can games that have a huge amount of data to buffer load faster than this thing’s 2d user interface?

Lil_Mermaid_Girl said:

November 5th, 6:59 pm

I don’t understand why they don’t just make it so anyone can use any trophy image that they have unlocked as their avatar. Then sony doesn’t have to worry about making new avatars, and people won’t all be the same thing and can change to alot of different things depending on the trophies they have. I think this would work well.

whitwhit said:

November 5th, 7:12 pm

okay, where are the new animated avatars that we were supposed to be getting, that we heard about months ago if Im not mistaken. Also, we only have 5 dynamic themes that sucks, why can’t we have the r&c dynamic theme from the eu and why are there no free themes either. This is getting pretty ridiclus that everyone gets free stuff and we do not. I’m getting fed up with all of this crap. I would want an answer as i would want to buy something new as an avatar but i know that i want get one.

remanutd5 said:

November 5th, 7:13 pm

PULSE should be longer with more content and weekly , i really love the show and thanks for all the videos ( God of War collection and the ps3 videos ) i have downloaded Assassins Creed 2 short film from the UK store ( man you guys should have done the same with Uncharted 2 ) that short film just made me decide to get the game oh and the DC universe online tour video is great too

KazeEternal said:

November 5th, 7:18 pm

@Jeff Rubenstien

ummm….. maybe I lost my mind here but isnt’ Nier Ghestalt Xbox360 exclusive? Why is it on the PSN store instead of Nier Replicant footage?

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

November 5th, 7:31 pm

lostinplainsight…you have excellent taste. (b’-‘)b

And…wasn’t Gex already in the PSOne classics section? Or was this a new one? Ah well, I agree that this is too good of an update to warrant all of the negative attention. Sock-It-To-Me cake isn’t a horrible cake just because the walnuts would kill me. Even if the update doesn’t have what you want, it has good stuff.

Besides, why must we have EVERYTHING we want all at once? Have some patience, and have something to look forward to for next time.

Enigma777 said:

November 5th, 7:36 pm

YES! Finally we get Dissidia! Thanks for the hard work guys!

I don’t want to spoil this, but can we also get the following games:

Crisis core
FFT: War of the Lions
MGS: Portable Ops
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles
Lumines 2
Space Invaders Extreme

November 5th, 7:47 pm

More Way of the Samurai 3 DLC!? They’re offering a lot of stateside support for this game. Awesome… already put 115 hours into it. It ain’t pretty, but it’s still pretty freakin’ awesome.

WhiteRice757 said:

November 5th, 7:51 pm

Where is the Ninja Gaiden Sigma Table for Zen Pinball? According to the October 6th Blog post:

“Currently, we have a tentative release date scheduled for October 2009”

Any new information on when we can expect this to arrive to the psn?

BlooodyCow said:

November 5th, 8:06 pm

honestly wtf. Why is there two DLC for $20 for Dragon Age when the game just came out. Why couldn’t the put those content on the disk. This is total BS and I will be pirating this game on my xbox 360.

Also, Sony wtf? Where the hell is the new avatars?

spunnups said:

November 5th, 8:10 pm

An avatar update would be nice, a big one

Serge-01W said:

November 5th, 8:14 pm

Wow I Cant Believe it DISSIDIA YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

zMd113 said:

November 5th, 8:15 pm

SWEET! it’s a really good update this week! a little bit of everything!

Darth-Krayt said:

November 5th, 8:23 pm

No, this is an awesome update. Sony is right on top of the ball.
And yea, really, GEX. One of the most classic platformers on PS1. Funny you sit there and act like GEX is bad, then you turn around and ask for MK Special forces, one of the worst games ever, and that’s coming from about the biggest MK fans you can get. You could be asking for MK Trilogy, and you ask for Special Forces……

you’re an idiot, and a thief. Why are you crying like a fool about DLC that comes free with the game? Dope.

clupula668 said:

November 5th, 8:30 pm

@121 – Ghesalt is 360-exclusive only in Japan. In America, it is multi-platform. Not sure if they’re doing the same with Replicant or if that’ll stay PS3-exclusive here.

Tony14Marvel said:

November 5th, 8:37 pm

So when will we be seeing a Tekken 6 demo? or will there b?

MLEW85 said:

November 5th, 8:41 pm

premium themes or premium avatars?

BlooodyCow said:

November 5th, 8:47 pm

@129 Darth-Krayt
thief? Bioware is the thief. Why couldn’t these content be on the disk? Why are the being release the same time the game is release? Why are the charging 20 bucks for them?
By the way, only one of these DLC is free if you purchase the game new. the other one you have to buy. So you support this crap of DLC releasing the same time the game is release and you have to pay for it? Last time I check, Blu-ray have not shortage of storage space.

Hi Grace is there any word on Crisis Core coming to the store. I would love to buy this game.

AceNet2 said:

November 5th, 9:22 pm

Very nice update this week.

Thanks for the Trine demo!

Finally! The PSP gets some love! I thought you guys forgot you had released the Go already. ;)

Dice_for_Death_ said:

November 5th, 9:30 pm

This Store update bricked my PS3!!11.. lol, anyway.

Frealdo, nice update. Enjoyed the Nectaris demo.

FranklinMcMahon said:

November 5th, 9:31 pm

I would vote for more demos, videos and screenshots of new releases in the store on the device.

With the PSP, for most of the new games, on the device there is no demo, no screenshots and no video of the game. Just a text description. I would buy much more on impulse if there were more vid/pics in the store, even screenshots would be a start. Of course I go online and research the new releases like anyone else, but it would be nice to have some of that on the PSP/GO to see. update..I have a feeling Crisis Core will be coming sooner than we think…

xeno3d said:

November 5th, 9:33 pm

Anything about the Pules and Uncharted 2 Fortune Hunter Edition contest?

xeno3d said:

November 5th, 9:38 pm

And who won the Marvel vs Capcom 2 Vinyls????

KazeEternal said:

November 5th, 10:23 pm

Are you sure about Ghestalt? Everything I’ve seen seems to suggest that it is an Xbox360 exclusive… then again E3 footage and Tokyo Game Show footage don’t imply the same thing. Oh well in any case I really have no interest in Ghestalt, I’m more interested in Nier Replicant. Would have rather had that trailer up on PSN. I just hope you’re right about Ghestalt if my interest in Nier ever expands beyond Replicant. I really would rather not buy this for my Breaking Box 360.

dont you know if MS says something is “exclusive” and its not 1st party. it is only timed exclusive at best.

Oh my god, the very first GEX! I love you Americans :-) Now bring on the second one as well and the Gex cycle is complete :-)

Europe has 1 classic this week since months…. are you sitting:

YAAAH I’ve been waiting this for years… *sarcasm*.

Wow this update is HUGE. Triple thumbs up!

Ice_Snake said:

November 6th, 12:29 am

These updates have been so bad. The last DLC I got was broken steel. Where are those minis that were promised by the end of the year and where are all those PS1 Classics that are lined up. I herd months ago Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Dino Crisis was suppose to come out. Also where is Final Fantasy VIII and IX. My PSP is getting lonely again. It also wouldn’t kill ya to put Metal Gear Solid VR Missions up. One last thing if you could put the English patched Policenauts up that would be awesome.
