will these discounts be applied to the amazon.com psn store?

jqtaxpayer said:

November 24th, 5:06 pm

Bomberman Ultra for $5 is a steal.

Axecution said:

November 24th, 5:07 pm

k, i gonna sum up everything people are whining about in the comments here and attempt to argue them-

1. Updates should be on Tuesdays-

Are you stupid? I agree that they should be on Tuesdays so that we get stuff before the 360, but then what’s to stop Microsoft from just changing their updates to Mondays? You cant just keep changing dates, idiots. It SHOULD be Wednesday, and theres no reason why it isn’t. Disc-based games come out day-and-date with the 360…

2. Afrika theme charging-

Agreed, this is dumb, but it costs money to make a dynamic theme and publish it, so….

3. Us Canadians not getting the Uncharted Motion Comic-

I hate this just as much as you, but people need to understand that waiting a week isn’t that bad, and licensing issues are obviously the problem

SPOOKULA209 said:

November 24th, 5:08 pm

Great update, maybe I should start playing my psp more often. Lots of psone games and psp games. Put more games on sale, I just bought bomberman ultra!

JpaQ said:

November 24th, 5:09 pm

i would like to see some food added to this blog, preferable some honey baked ham.

Now get a move on. i’m hungry.

Dmx66 said:

November 24th, 5:12 pm

nice update.. can you put up xenogears for ps1 please and thank you.

Otto234 said:

November 24th, 5:15 pm

What is this with the Uncharted comic being only in the US?

pieeater100 said:

November 24th, 5:17 pm

you guys should have made a turkey dynamic theme

jaserious said:

November 24th, 5:18 pm

Great update, but I have to ask what is going on with the older psp games.

There are many old games I want to play still not on the psn. It’s been a while since we got some older releases.

Also there isn’t a single nhl game go owners can buy. Not NHL 07 not NHL2K10.

SwampThing71 said:

November 24th, 5:23 pm

What happened to Revenge of the Wounded Dragons it was suppose to come out today ?

Galley said:

November 24th, 5:24 pm

Gravity Crash looks to be a “must buy”.

Skv007 said:

November 24th, 5:24 pm

Awesome but was hoping for a nice kickass demo to keep me busy during thanksgiving (not that eating and what not wont keep me busy lol)

I guess BC2 beta will have to do ^^

Episode 2 of Indra.. *goes to download*
Absolutely amazing.

yanksfan216 said:

November 24th, 5:27 pm

great great.


i cant even get to the first save point without a freeze. sometimes it happens just after the first hydra head.



echogridlock said:

November 24th, 5:27 pm

Here is what I don’t get… You would think a game download like LBP would be cheaper than a store bought UMD copy. Why? Well for one the cost of materials. If you download a copy you are not buying the disc or case/materials. So Sony why are, you charging full price? Downloaded games should be cheaper even if its just $2 to $5 cheaper I would buy. Plus it helps promote PSP GO, use of the store, and would help to sway against the use of your competitors devices/service. Am I the only one that thinks this?

yanksfan216 said:

November 24th, 5:28 pm

oh and thanks for the MAG beta.

jeffsmither said:

November 24th, 5:31 pm

is Fate/Unlimited Codes Sale just for a week?

ja3kal72 said:

November 24th, 5:32 pm

&2.99 for Afrika dynamic theme when it’s free on the japan store??? wdf

bLiNdSiDe82 said:

November 24th, 5:47 pm

Gonna grab Comet Crash (any dev that adds content to their games for free gets my money), Dino Crisis, Fighting Force, and LittleBigPlanet PSP as soon as I get home from the firestation tomorrow morning. Great update.

Happy Thanksgiving all!!


November 24th, 6:02 pm

nice update, thanks. When can I get chrono trigger and chrono cross? Sony thinking about these two gems at all? Would be awesome to play this on my psp, Ho well, maybe somebody, somewhere at sony cares…

On the mean time, Ill get dino crisis for sure.

happy thanksgiving

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

It looks like a good PS Store update this week. It’s great seeing so many PSone Classics added this week as well as the entire year. And it’s also nice seeing more PSP Minis available. I just wish that there was some way to sample those PSone Classics and PSP Minis (either demos or that rumored PSN rental service would be great). As for LittleBigPlanet PSP, I enjoyed playing last week’s demo, so I’ll definitely buy the full version pretty soon. Anyhow, thanks for the update and happy Thanksgiving.

November 24th, 6:07 pm

This is good news, I was just about to go pick up a $10 PSN Card the other day. Now I get to buy Flower along with another game. (:

hjason1 said:

November 24th, 6:08 pm

not a great update at all. 1st of all why do we have to pay for the afrika dynamic theme? and 2nd why do we have to pay for a 5 minute video of the u2 comic that is full of adds? i think sony is getting money hungry. that is why they are making a premium psn,next year.

spunnups said:

November 24th, 6:09 pm

$4.99 for ONE LBP shirt?
$2.99 for the Afrika Dynamic Theme that came free on the Japan store?

Are You Serious?!?!?

katsuo7171 said:

November 24th, 6:11 pm

JP = Free Afrika theme
US = 2.99 for same Afrika theme.

What an ass move SCEA

saintaqua said:

November 24th, 6:13 pm

Now I have to wait until Friday to get paid. :(

TubaDude49 said:

November 24th, 6:17 pm

@89/98 You guys are forgetting Ape Escape. Plus I’m still waiting for Dreamcast stuff like Sonic Adventure 2.

Scabdidly said:

November 24th, 6:24 pm

I strongly advise others to NOT purchase the UC2 motion comic episode 2. It is formatted as a game rather than a video to prevent you from using the standard video options to fast-forward through the commercial it includes even though you could in the first, FREE episode. This also means that you cannot group it in an album with the first episode and you must manually exit the “game” through the XMB instead of just pressing the circle button. You can’t pause, it plays in a frame that you have to turn off… etc. Please don’t give your money to someone who would intentionally make their product WORSE to force you to watch someone else’s advertisement for a completely unrelated product. It’s a truck ad. Seriously.

RSL87 said:

November 24th, 6:24 pm

Dino Crisis is sweet.. i just wish i could use the analog stick with it :(

Glacier928 said:

November 24th, 6:25 pm

Incredible update Grace and everyone at SCEA! This easily kicked off my Thanksgiving break!

WebScud said:

November 24th, 6:27 pm

Why on earth does the second “Eye of Indra” episode get installed as a game? There’s zero reason for that. I really, really want the ability to “play all” and just watch the entire story at some point. Having to launch individual games every few minutes is pretty lame.

I would be okay if the episodes downloaded like games, but installed movies the same way the PixelJunk soundtracks work. The video doesn’t have to be DRM-free — I can deal with that *restriction* in this case.

Also, I would much rather pay $20 for the whole series without ads. I didn’t realize the paid episodes would have ads. Even though it’s just one ad it has a long runtime compared to the entire episode.


November 24th, 6:36 pm

Hey People Does Any One Know When Is The Natzi Zombie Add On For Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Comming Out??? I M Getting Tired Of This World Of War Zombie Map’s!!!lol GREAT GAME!!!

tim_AZNPx0 said:

November 24th, 6:36 pm

Yay, LittleBigPlanet! Can’t wait for the money to come in to get it…

Still no Rock Band Unplugged though…

Happy holidays Playstation team ^^

great update,might get last guy or pop


November 24th, 6:38 pm

November 24th, 6:40 pm

nice update. I guess I have to buy Smash Cars now, I was going to wait till after xMas to get my gift card but whatever.

I love how PSN always does price cuts like that!!

Talyis said:

November 24th, 6:47 pm

What happened to that REVENGE OF THE DRAGONS game? I thought it was supposed to be released today!

kenaue said:

November 24th, 6:53 pm

Hi, enjoyed the update, really did.

Can you pass along this message to the network team?:

“Fix the network. Trophy synching is borked, and it’s been that way for a week now. Fix the network.”

jixjax said:

November 24th, 6:55 pm

Very Nice update! Such a great time to have a PS3!!!

saik said:

November 24th, 6:57 pm

Where the heck are the avatars? It’s been literally three years since I’ve own a PS3 and been using the same old ones.

WebScud said:

November 24th, 7:09 pm

@saik I know! The firmware supports premium avatars. Do people not like money? :-P

KidCommando said:

November 24th, 7:10 pm

Very good update, lots of content there. Will be picking up Gravity Crash and Last Guy myself.

PLEASE, for the love of Kratos, GET SOME VIDEO PREVIEWS OF THE CONTENT YOU ARE TRYING TO SELL ON YOUR STORE! Either you don’t want to pay for the bandwidth or your team is completely oblivious to this need. As an example, look at the Minis section for PSP. You guys want me to purchase any one of those without giving me an idea of what to expect for gameplay. Im sorry, a title and exaggerated description alone does not help whatsoever with my purchasing decision. I can’t believe people buy anything blindly. YES, I know how to use google, but I shouldn’t have to in order to find out what YOUR store is selling.

I think the lack of a FREE dynamic theme in the US store is sad. all major regions got a FREE dynamic theme for the new feature, except for the US. OK, that is fine, there are many things the US store get before the other regions. What I find insulting is that you are now turning around and selling a FREE theme to us for $2.99. I’m sorry but I won’t support the dynamic theme feature anytime soon with that kind of message.

November 24th, 7:15 pm

At 139 I’m thinking avatars be coming around Christmas time. To Grace Chen Have very happy Thanksgiving Day and eveyone else. Thanks for great updated Now looks like going have spend another 50 bucks. I all ready just got SD and Raw 2010 game. :). By way does anyone know when THQ and PSN updated will updated there roster?

zolagorgon said:

November 24th, 7:20 pm


Great Update!

I recently got a PSPgo, and i am loving the Minis-

I just want to say that it would be a great idea for the PSN to start showing some kind of previews for all the PSP Mini games-

it’s kind of hard to get any idea about the games by just a text description-

screenshots and/or gameplay video preview for each game would be great!

i would like to buy more but really have no idea what some games will be like at all!


Toxicitizen said:

November 24th, 7:26 pm

Resident Evil 2 finally comes out last week, and now we get Dino Crisis?


I’m not really interested in the other PSOne games this week, but frankly the sheer amount of them is amazing and I’m sure there are other people who are glad to see them. Keep ’em coming!

Hopefully Dino Crisis 2 is in the pipelines as well!

yanksfan216 said:

November 24th, 7:26 pm


I appreciate the nice update BUT I’d much rather like to play this collection I’ve been wanting for months now.

PLZZ SONY just release some already! is almost X-mas!!!

and adding Afrika as dynamic thme is a Joke.. and isnt even free…..

Happy thnx giving and plz release us some good dynamic themes and Premium Avatars

bmart008 said:

November 24th, 7:53 pm

A really great update I might have to buy another couple psone classics this week to go along with RE2 and Soul Reaver last week. Hopefully we continue to get all these great classics coming regularly from now on, I’m especially interested to try Vagrant Story. But I have about 4-5 PS1 classics to get through till then! (That means you guys are doing a great job!)

Happy American Thanksgiving you guys from a fan from Canada.

Ramage said:

November 24th, 7:56 pm

Way to delay a free dynamic theme and then charge for it to boot. Good thing I already yanked it off the JP store.

I too was hoping the game sale would go THROUGH december as I plan to get PSN cards for xmas but now I’ll have to spend my own money to get these discounts.

Also my gf will probably make me get diner dash. I hate that game with a passion.
