If the PS3 printed $20 bills, people would complain that it didn’t print $100 bills. Complaining is what gamers do.

Wow at all the whiners. Not every update is going to be amazing. Not everything is spoon fed to you.

Nothing for me cuz of this week’s lame update.

It’s January 14th, not April 1st, wtf Sony?!

is this like Chinese New Year being in like June

is Japanese Fool’s Day in mid January?

Nothing for a RPGer to buy, as usual, but thanks for the WKC & SO:TLH videos. Can’t wait for February!!!

not every update can be a rock hard package. they’re not machines. with not much to go on, how else can u expect them to perform.

Return to Ostagar was delayed indefinitely. It was about to be released last night, but it came out on xbox and had some fatal flaws and had to be pulled. It’s coming, but no1 knows for sure when. The nice thing about Dragon Age though, is it’s DLC gets released whenever it get’s released. We don’t have to wait for the PSStore to update. The DLC will go up right on the in-game store.

I paid $600 for my PS3. I don’t cry and moan like you people. For 3 years I have enjoyed all the best exclcusives on the gaming market, and have enjoyed all the best downloadable games as well. You aren’t entitled to get an update YOU find amazing every single week. Grow up. You demanding stuff like an 8 year old has nothing to do with support. That’s you feeling entitled. You buying a PS3 in no way come with some guarantee that you are going to love the store update every week.
As for PSPGo owners, of which I am one. In just a few months there are over 200 games on the store. That’s pretty good support. Not something that warrants all the constant idiotic bashing. There are very few good PSP games NOT on the store, and the few that aren’t is the fault of the devs, not Sony.

One of the worst updates ever. Why can’t you guys put more avatars!? I have been waiting three weeks for new avatars since you guys put the LittleBigPlanet avatars. It doesn’t take that long to make an avatar! Put some MGS, and MW2 avatars! Come on Sony, just look at all the comments.


January 14th, 10:19 pm

Where is that Uncharted 2 DLC!

can you get gex2 on psn loved that game!

I’m just happy to have more info on white knight chronicles. It’s so close to release and we’ve been in the dark about it as far as new info goes for awhile now.

pottytrainers said:

January 14th, 10:34 pm

wer the fuk are the ps1 classics?

TheMadSpin said:

January 14th, 10:39 pm

I got a 360 for Christmas.

Until I experienced XBox Live Gold I had no idea how unsettling the PSN updates actually were.

I’m hoping that the Sony premium service creates the type of dynamic environment Sony users deserve (especially stupid early adopters like me who bought overpriced systems with no dual-shock).

I’ve been waiting a long time and it looks like Sony is finally catching up–but the online arm of the Playstation is still a lonely one. It’s an exciting time for Sony fans when it comes to single player titles and a lonely world when it comes to online support.

I can’t imagine PSP Go users are very happy this week either–Luxor–really? That’s what ya got?

I’d rather have a new PSOne classic I think.

jvasq said:

January 14th, 10:56 pm

well i was hoping for more but I guess I’ll have to wait….sony honestly put something good on and i WILL spend the money. I guess I’ll pixel junkie monsters until next week for my psp and buy borderlands for my ps3.

MarinoBrea said:

January 14th, 11:02 pm

I wonder what we have to do to get more stupid avatars? Sony, is it that hard? really? Do we have to spam every board in here to make you upload, what? 300 MB worth of tiny pictures?

XxBLO_DROxX said:

January 14th, 11:20 pm

I AGREE that this is a horrible update..we had to wait 2 weeks for the holidays and got a bad update and now we get another HORRIBLE update..They really need to give us wat we deserve after the holidays..a good update!!!! PUT FF7 CRISIS CORE ON THE PSN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Eurostar7x said:

January 14th, 11:22 pm

Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people pay money to buy hardware and software from Sony’s gaming department, in order to pay for their worker’s salaries, and THIS is what they come up with after 2 weeks hiatus and 4 days of actual work?

There are thousands of user-made wallpapers, couldnt you come up with some Anime avatars AT LEAST?

ALOT OF THE GAMES WERE DEMOS..SONY SAID WHEN GO 1st came out that it would put over 200 new games on psn but that also included

CalicoJ said:

hey how about the PsN store add Parasite Eve awesome game and it sold well plz look into it and it was a PSone classic

ThanatosDMC said:

Add Tag Force 4 on the PSP for download please.

spunnups said:

January 15th, 12:13 am

How bout some avatars that don’t cost $$$$?????

Egz-Onine said:

January 15th, 12:38 am

Must be a slow week. I would be content to consider it merely the calm before the storm. Although that may be true for the entire month of January. I believe the beginning of the year is the slowest time all around for games, usually. This year is a bit different on the software front.

LukeinDeidre said:

Time to put the psp and ps3 on ebay. Sony is DEAD.

alfian2 said:

lame update, but hey they got lunar demo?! cool..

Velzorn said:

January 15th, 1:59 am

I know all the updates can’t be winners but wow.

I was also going to ask about new avatars and dynamic themes but the longer it takes for these the more I’m positive you are purposely holding out on these for your premium online service fee.

Thrasher20 said:

January 15th, 2:43 am

Wow… I’m really sorry to say this, and I actually really never do, but…. this update is seriously the worst one yet. No PS1 games? Now new PSN game? No avatars?

1 out of 5


Jamekkus said:

January 15th, 3:06 am

keep the updates comming sony ;)

Liamario said:

January 15th, 3:15 am

Worst update ever? Yes please.

ReppinIt said:

January 15th, 3:18 am

This is the last straw. I’m moving to Europe, at least the Go owners over there get some love. Good luck people. Good bye North America.

Elvick_ said:

January 15th, 3:28 am

That was a weak update. Nice to see Magic Ball still being supported, even if it’s under a new title now, for whatever reason.

IcedDice777 said:

January 15th, 3:44 am

…..Nice way to start 2010 sony, with another Weak@ss sauce store update. What’s the deal with Hustle Kings?

I wasn’t expecting much. The next two months are always slow even for movie releases on DVD/Blu-Ray.

I will use my money to catch up on downloads I haven’t bought yet.

Ch0c0L4t3m1Lk said:

January 15th, 5:20 am

i look forward to these updates all week. while this isnt the worst update ever, its still pretty useless.

r-nice said:

January 15th, 5:50 am

Enough of the damn puzzle games sheesh.

papolatte said:

January 15th, 6:01 am

I only check the store updates for ps1 games, still looking for my classic rpgs to be released, and for addon content for certain games.

I’d say this was another let down for me, except for one saving grace.

Lunar Demo.

That makes this update worth 1251412412 times more than the last few, in my eyes at least.

ClinToN said:

January 15th, 6:01 am

Some of you must have an amazing budget because every week some of you act like you have millions of dollars to spend. Some of you should also kill all that talk of acting as if you’re qualified to run the PS Store.

LouVelvet said:

This is pretty poopy.

This is my first time posting a comment.
What a terrible update!!

Psikorps said:

January 15th, 6:37 am

All I can say is…
The Jan 7th update left us high & dry, but I figured you guys needed MORE than the 2 weeks ya had to shake off the eggnog/rum induced burnout.

However you have long passed that grace period.
2 updates, in nearly a month and this what ya throw out there for us?

Table scraps are for the family pet, not a paying fan base.

I better snag the Gran Tourismo DL for my PspNo, errr…I mean PspGo. (Or do I)…..
For Shame Sony…For Shame

scorpio182 said:

January 15th, 7:21 am

Be happy it’s something.

With all the great games come on…

Looking forward to Heavy Rain and GOW3.

Sony – I finally see your PS3 getting into non-gamers. My sister in-law picked one up this week also a friend of mine last month and several other people planning to get one for the reasons that it does so much.

Great job on the slim version…

KinjiroSSD said:

January 15th, 7:22 am

Could we get an update on Hustle Kings?

KILLZONE79 said:

January 15th, 7:22 am

Wow is crappy is that, UK playstation store update they reply to thier users. and here in USA grace chen doesnt reply to us at all
*hears crickets in background*

colstripcapn said:

January 15th, 7:28 am

I have to agree with most of the people here, this was a terrible update following a series of poor updates.

Does Sony even listen to the feedback of their users?

Wolverine1977 said:

January 15th, 7:38 am


Seriously what’s going on Sony? Now not only it is a lame update for PSP as usual, it now sucks too for the PS3…

DropD said:

djroberts said:

January 15th, 7:48 am

Did you forget that you released the PSP Go? Where’s all the DD versions of past UMD games?

Futbolfan said:

January 15th, 7:58 am

This update is not particularly impressive. I’ll likely download the Ninja Gaiden 2 pinball table, but other than that, it’s a wasteland.

Sony, you sure must want people to save money after getting their credit cards maxed out after the holiday season.
