This may be the worst update ever.

Moosehole said:

January 14th, 4:52 pm

Wow what a lame update. Seriously. Almost no content to speak of.

PROish said:

SpyDudeFX said:

January 14th, 4:52 pm

No new avatars or dynamic themes? Eh, I’m buying the MagicOrbz DLC but that’s about it. Iffy week, kick up the avatars and theme schedule a bit so we’re not at 20 avatars by 2011.

berzirk said:

January 14th, 4:52 pm

Oh, crazy. I think my update page must have been cut off or something. It looks to me like you don’t have sh** of value to the PSP. That would be odd. :|

reddragon12222 said:

January 14th, 4:53 pm

I agree the WORST update ever how… sad

(When will we get legend of dragoon)

Maguss said:

January 14th, 4:53 pm

Wow what a terrible week,

Rakis said:

January 14th, 4:53 pm

So the PSN monkey finally pushed the button….

Moosehole said:

January 14th, 4:53 pm


It’s terrible, yes. But worst ever? No. Back in 2007 there would be many weeks where there would be nothing but game videos.

This is ALMOST that bad, though… and I thought those days were well behind us. Guess I was wrong.

loucetios said:

January 14th, 4:53 pm

Ouch pretty bad update considering there was what? a 2 week hiatus, Hopefully the coming weeks offer better stuff

Peloun said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

Man, crappy update

Talyis said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

OUCH! not very much stuff so far this year.
What happened to Vangrant Story release and Castle Crashers. Hopefully we get something new next week!

thegriefer said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

ahh, i was looking forward to this, but I’m disappointed.

Asylum3395 said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

took too long to get nothing

Veign said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

Seriously…this is a joke right? Wow.

Israel1948 said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

What a bad update.


At least give us a date for it.

loucetios said:

January 14th, 4:54 pm

Not only is it bad but it is also pretty late, 8pm EST it gets updated for this weak list? doesn’t seem right

chapnzaba said:

January 14th, 4:55 pm

Bad update
*sad face*

georgecat315fat said:

January 14th, 4:55 pm

horrible update except the GTPSP car pack

T3mpr1x said:

January 14th, 4:55 pm

LOL @ ANYONE saying that this may be the worst update ever…When the PSN was first getting its feet off the ground you were lucky to get two updates a MONTH…

Anyway, I’m getting both DLC packs for Magic Orbz and Zen Pinball, they should keep me busy when I get done celebrating my 21st birthday tonight hahaha

Rakis said:

January 14th, 4:56 pm

On second thought…. why did Sony even bother to update? (Other than to kick PSPGo owners in the crotch again)

Pro tip Sony: Give us games that we want, and we give you the money you want.

ThreeLeggedFreak said:

January 14th, 4:56 pm

This update is worse than Singstar update, okay not that bad but that’s not saying much.

LILBUDDY2000 said:

January 14th, 4:57 pm

Thx for the update

TriangleOffense said:

January 14th, 4:57 pm

Awful Awful update and @ PROish Hustle Kings is great but for some reason they just dont want to put it on the US PSN just like they waited forever on Trine

KILLZONE79 said:

January 14th, 4:57 pm

OMG, this update wasnt even worth posting
pretty lame update

UNCyrus said:

January 14th, 4:58 pm

Worst update in a year probably…. Seriously though Sony, you released a platform, the PSP Go, please support it by offering new releasing the week they come out on the PSN. It’s hardly fair to those of us that spent good money

gamekingaj said:

January 14th, 4:58 pm

Can we get crash team racing ps1 soon pleeessse!

Irishmandkg said:

January 14th, 4:58 pm

Horrible update, no dragon age dlc? Well this leaves more money to donate for Haiti.

Joeyboots80 said:

January 14th, 4:58 pm

Geez, how bare bones does it get? Not a single PSN game, and no PSone classics?! For shame!

Stoffinator said:

January 14th, 4:59 pm

This reminds me of the first year of the PS updates.

DrFish62 said:

January 14th, 4:59 pm

One of the worst updates in a very long time. The lack of PSP Go support is dumbfounding.


January 14th, 4:59 pm

When are we going to see more full disc based games available on the PS3 as budget downloads?

Basically I think ANY game that reaches Greatest Hits status should be available as a download.

StuntF50 said:

January 14th, 5:00 pm

Very lackluster update.

More avatars.

arha2 said:

January 14th, 5:00 pm

When are we getting a Heavy Rain demo? My anticipation for that game is killing me- each Thursday I’ve got my fingers crossed…!

libregkd said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

People here must have selective memories. Sony always has week updates in Janurary, have you never paid attention to the last update or so for Jan?

That said, having Alice in Chains for Rock Band makes it a decent update to me.

cros1625 said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

I’m soooo glad I didn’t buy Magic Orbz earlier this week :) Thanks for the bundle!!!!

Mikaa1701 said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

Glad to see the Lunar demo, but where are the PSP/PS3/PSOne games?

mastrofallz said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

Wow, screw you all.

Not every update is going to be great, and when its not, you all act like Sony NEVER gave great updates!

berzirk said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

Do you guys think Grace knows when she has a miserable update that they’re about to push out, but still has to submit it anyway and just brace for the terrible feedback? That’s gotta be a bit like working for the IRS.

DNAgent said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

Terrible update. Are we gonna get dynamic themes & avatars more than once a month? The only thing worthwhile in this update is the WKC trailer.

OleGunnar said:

January 14th, 5:01 pm

No Demon’s Souls dynamic theme…Lame!

No Hustle Kings…Lame!

Useless update.

INTVGene said:

January 14th, 5:02 pm

Late and not much content. Did you plan at all for the new year, Sony?

Yaholo said:

January 14th, 5:03 pm

Luxor is like the present that is more insulting than if you actually did nothing. Seriously… Luxor?!?!?! Your just giving us the finger now aren’t you?

megamixer said:

January 14th, 5:03 pm

And I thought last weeks update was disastrously bad…

Way to kick of the new year/decade in guys.


January 14th, 5:03 pm

@37 She is ‘supposedly’ Senior Manager (though he lack of interaction with her clients is freakish) so maybe, you know, she should FIX IT.

adventfire said:

January 14th, 5:04 pm

Wow I can’t believe Sony even bothered with that update, ONE whole game set for psp and the rest were add ons, videos and all garbage. Well I guess on the brightside, Sony has now pushed me to sell both my psp and ps3 for upgrades for my PC. Way to go Sony!!! “Worst update ever!”

dragonthingy123 said:

January 14th, 5:04 pm

By far one of the worst PSN updates ever. There are still a ton of games that need to be added to the store for PSP, I’m talking Final Fantasy Crisis Core, Online Chess Kingdoms, Tony Hawk Underground 2, Pac-man World 3, Hot Pixel… this is horrible, Sony.

I bought a PSP Go for 80$ over a PSP-3000 do be able to do more with it. Instead, you don’t even bother to do anything for PSP that people care about. I feel like such an idiot, being the only person in my town of 20,000 who bought a PSP Go. In fact, I’m going to sell it in the next month until you guys give us a decent update and a few of the games I listed.

Way to go, Sony.

HatmanTc said:

January 14th, 5:04 pm

WOW the people on this site never cease to amaze me in what they can find to complain about. Every week if it’s not one thing it’s another. Not every update will be a winner. We have had some great updates in the last few months. One bad one every now and then isn’t the en of the world. Go out and buy some of those great PSN titles that you have yet to buy, there’s bond to be one or two games you missed in the last few months.

McGlone16 said:

January 14th, 5:04 pm

What a waste of money my pspgo was. Thanks alot sony.

Poxxer said:

January 14th, 5:04 pm

Update does seem rather thin this week. I’ll probably get the Orbz add-on. The bundle looks good for those people who dont have the main game yet.
