man…… A crap load of price drops, but nothing worth noting for PSN lovers other then that. No demos……. Mean while the 360 gets 50 plus demos a week it seems.

I wish Sony would drop the weekly store update and just let third parties post thier stuff when it’s ready like the other Box dose it means faster demo times, and more content per week then this junk.

Also we are still missing 4 demos that third party devs told us would be released on certen times over PSN and never got released ever.

January 22nd, 9:58 am

Braid and Critter Crunch — now purchased.

Thanks for the awesome sale, Sony! :-)

Killzone101 said:

January 22nd, 10:19 am

I’ll definitely be buying Braid ASAP now. I can’t wait for the Uncharted 2 dlc next week!!!

Kaiser081990 said:

January 22nd, 11:24 am

Wow.. being a Sony fan boy i really expect more. I recently bought a Psp Go because i dislike UMD’s and love the thought of being able to carry around all my game in the on board memory in the system. I don’t regret my purchase because the main games i wanted were Final Fantasy Dissidia, Final Fantasy 7 and Disgaea, which i have. My issue is that i have money that I am more than willing to spend on a vast majority of the other Psp titles that i have not played, but they are not here. For some reason the people that support your (Sony’s) new endeavor into the all digital download realm get shafted by a lack of available content, what is the sense in that? Heck I want to be able to play Final Fantasy Crisis Core, PopoLoCrois, Yugioh Tag Force 4, ect… and I know others are waiting for the many great PSone classics that exist. Many would even be understanding of there were any news on when some of the bigger titles were going to come out, but there isn’t. We post on the board hoping to hear answers as to why the updates are so waek but we get none. I personally wont jump ship or sell my Psp Go because im getting what i

Kaiser081990 said:

January 22nd, 11:25 am

wan’t out of it, but as a company shouldn’t your goal be to make me a consumer happy and provide me with more content for the devices that you put on the market? I understand that not every update can be a gem and that not every question can be answered, but it also needs to be understood that we want to spend our money on quality items of which we are generally being denied.

Hello ;)

MellowSong said:

January 22nd, 11:56 am

Decent update,but only 1 PSone classic? where is ‘Brave Fencer Musashi’ for PSone classic?

improperlyaged said:

January 22nd, 12:30 pm

I’m sorry but what is wrong with sony. i mean u update the ps3 to allow dynamic themes and avatars but u dont actually release any. i mean whats the point of releasing the capability to digitally download content but u dont actually release any digital content support. i haven’t seen a marketing ploy this half-cocked since……..oh yeah the pspgo. lame. here’s an idea stop updating the system(s) (to include psp line) until u have the content to support ur features. and seriously please just let us use custom avatars cuz i am not paying for a pic of lbp or really any other game that sjust an obvious ripoff. i mean u call them dynamic but thier not. their just pics. same as the other free avatars.

improperlyaged said:

January 22nd, 12:34 pm

also sony here’s an idea for your psone classic line. if u want people to stop complaining release actual classics. here’s a clue: square(the entire software library). proceed from there.

improperlyaged said:

January 22nd, 12:36 pm

funny why is it my first comment which was harshly critical of sony’s marketing and strategy is awaiting moderation and yet my second which was just a recommendation to publish more square games cleared instantly. intriguing.

AceBeeDee said:

January 22nd, 2:44 pm

Man, I’ve been having serious problems commenting on the blog from my PS3. I click on the comment box and the text keys won’t come up. any other site works fine, but here probs occur. What could be wrong?

Haseo106 said:

January 22nd, 3:24 pm

NO DEMOS! lol. Any way, SvR 2010 DLC: Stone Cold => This is COOL

RyanOnTheGo said:

January 22nd, 4:24 pm

As an owner of the psp go I must say that I’m not as happy at the playstation store right now. There are many games coming out on the psp 1,2,and 3000 while the psp go only gets about 1 game a week. there are certain games like lego indiana jones 2, that have come out about a month ago and still aren’t on the playstation store for psp. But the Playstation store on the PS3 gets all the new games. Why Isn’t this happening for the psp store?

megamixer said:

January 22nd, 4:29 pm

@Grace Chen
Ah, okay. Wasn’t aware of that. Thanks for the reply btw. I hope we get a Konami storefront. They’ve published a lot of games and dlc to PSN. Plus they’re Konami, makers of Metal Gear among other great games! They really deserve one. :)

BizzyBox said:

January 22nd, 4:43 pm

Any news on the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Demo and wether it’s finished certification?

ZhePrime said:

January 22nd, 6:24 pm

Pretty sweet deals, gonna pick up Zen Pinball, Critter Crunch and Braid.

But if there’s one thing I’d love to see above all else it’s Alundra getting uploaded as a PS one Classic.
The greatest Zelda:ish game ever and it’s not on the store? Heresy!

VivaGardner said:

January 22nd, 9:05 pm

Thanks for the sale! Handpick some more games next week and I’ll keep buying.

Xenon787 said:

January 22nd, 10:18 pm

Hi, I recently updated to software 3.15, and I have not been able to access the facebook icon- it simply doesn’t exist on my XMB. Any thoughts?

Pelt_Hunter said:

January 22nd, 11:03 pm

Critter Crunch looks a little too kiddie for me but that secksy hand 2D animation is spectacular. Plus the variety of colors should be a nice change of pace from the drab shooters. And he pukes RAINBOWS fer chrissakes! For $3.50 I could do worse.. I mean I’ve spent over $20 on Pain and it’s extra levels and I’ve yet to justify it with one trophy. The graphics are great but the physics don’t feel weighty enough.. I wish they had a patch that made that game FUN and made me not regret buying it.. That and Battle Tanks.. it looked like TF2 for tanks and then they went for realism.. so lame… Those are pretty much my only 2 PSN regrets out of around 15 games purchased.

Lainie_Wolf said:

January 23rd, 3:08 am

I think its funny how people get mad because they dont get what they want when they want it on PSN, so they try to throw the (im trading my ps3 for an xbox if sony dont straighten up) in their face. I was in game stop the other day and 4 people were trading their xbox 360’s for a ps3 sooo…lol i freakin love sony…my tv is a sony bravia, i have a sony theater system and ofcourse a ps3, im also buying a sony vaio laptop. SR series looks sweet and the Z series. but yeah awesome updates, everyone of em. but i would like new avatars maybe a panther 1 (hint hint) no rush though, i know you are busy people trying to make everybody happy lol but it seems like some people have no respect and appreciate what you guys are doing and trying to do. oh and the new clothing on home totally rocks. so keep doing what your doing and i’ll be a sony fan for life lol
~peace & love to all~

Ok people listen up, better update your brains cuz this Heavy Rain news pop out a couple of days ago and people should know before they will complain about it…… Heavy Rain will see a demo on February. This will be on the 11th at least for the Europe Store. So if you know how to make a Europe PSN account (don’t ask me just youtube’it) get ready to download it from there in the case the US storefront gets lazy (artitle: http://www.vg247.com/2010/01/21/scee-confirms-heavy-rain-demo-for-february-11-scee-confirms/ ). In other news, OPM UK gave Heavy Rain a review… a 9 out of 10!!!! (check artitle: http://www.vg247.com/2010/01/18/opm-gives-heavy-rain-9-in-world-first-review/ )

I warn people that go more deep on the links of other articles especially the ones of the ESRB rating and especific strong scenes on the game detailed as SPOILERS. So you had been warned if you go blinded on links others from the ones I posted. Good Day

SilverPR said:

January 23rd, 3:45 am

I was right with the info regarding Heavy Rain that I post on #90. I wasn’t talking BS.

SilverPR said:

January 23rd, 3:46 am

Here’s how OPM explained a little bit of Heavy Rain….

“Certainly there’s nothing quite like it on PS3, or indeed any other system. Put gaming conventions aside, go in with no expectations other than this is something new and massively good-looking, and you’ll be rewarded with a unique experience that lurches between genius and madness, manages to be genuinely emotional, and that you’ll be bursting to talk about with your friends.”

stevelvl said:

January 23rd, 4:00 am

Really Bass Fishing? Really?! is that the best you can do after 2 weeks of no Ps1 classics? i mean do you honestly think people in the past actually bought that game, or are now thinkin ohh wow, i wanna fish on ps1! woohoo ? lol

SilverPR said:

January 23rd, 4:08 am

Yeah I know, what a shame. At least I bought the Wing Commander 4 game and because I’m old enough to had played the 1st WC game back on the SNES days even if I realized how bad the controls where. I just loved the way the story played on those games.

SilverPR said:

January 23rd, 4:17 am

I foudnd Funny the fact that the ESRB is the IMDB of spoilers on a game explaining the content of the game and the most offensive or explicit moments of a game…. well it was made for parents so who cares, I dont read it.

kibakashi2424 said:

January 23rd, 5:14 am

you guys should really need to put all the naruto and the naruto shippuden psp games on the playstation store so I can play them on my psp go

JFDIsKool99 said:

January 23rd, 7:42 am

Do they have any rockstar games on playstation network.

Stephen_Morris said:

January 23rd, 7:43 am

Championship Bass?! Really?! It’s original I get it, but when are you guys going to release really classic or original games like Bust A Groove, Vagrant Story, Silent Bomber, or I’ll even take Rising Zan-Samurai Gunman!(Controls a little awkward, but intro song alone is awesome!) At least try to give us a PS1 game each week, please.

Nickey23 said:

January 23rd, 4:02 pm

I think the sale is great. However when will the be more games that are already out for the Playstation 3 going to be availble for the psp go?

CropCircleJerk said:

January 23rd, 4:36 pm

Nice sale! Keep the deals coming, Sony! Purchased 4 titles today. Would’ve been 6, but already had 2 of them.

Why all the complaints for lack of demos and ps1 classics? I have numerous full games to keep me busy, and still have all my classic games to play… bought them when they were originally released! hell, i still have my old atari system with about 50 titles!

KevCity89 said:

January 23rd, 4:51 pm

Another weak Update week. Please bring out some PSone titles like the Mean Man X Games

what happened to the marvel ulmate allinnces 2 dlc

pac-man_31680 said:

January 23rd, 7:27 pm

I don’t understand why there aren’t too many demos and there should be a new PSP version update (made up>>>>>>) for example, ver. 6.55 or something. P.S. I DIDN’T SAY THERE WAS ONE, JUST SO YOU KNOW…

pac-man_31680 said:

January 23rd, 7:36 pm

Again, I still appreciate PSN for the demos and other free stuff and i’m lucky a friend of mine got a free promotion code Patapon 2 (well he knows a few certain, specific people to do that; isn’t that neat) P.S. i don’t like Patapon games much but the exiting part is the code, that was my very first promotion code.

pac-man_31680 said:

January 23rd, 7:38 pm

I’ll give you patapon players the code if you want. :-)

Hi Grace,

Thanks for the sale. I’m going to try and pick up Gravity Crash this week.

Do you think in the near future PSN could accept PayPal/PayPal via credit card as options to fund our PSN wallets? It would really add a lot of convenience!

Thanks and have a great week!

But Gamestops and Best Buys are always having a truckload of PSN cards all the time, at least mine does. Since this past fall I haven’t had to use my debit card for nothing PSN related.
