Not bad, but not great. Hey Grace are their anything really cool to look forward to on the PSN later this year?

I’m getting tired of how PSN is mainly for the PSP.

Why doesn’t PS3 get any sales? There are sales on PSP games nearly every week.

It’s called PSN not PSPN.

and they call me the rip off artist…….Damn what a crap full update again, and for crying out loud bring over Out Run from the UK. Another week of wasting my cash in the PSn home.

It is good to see the price drops of the PSP games, this is a great idea and I welcome more of these however…
I have both a PSP and and PSP Go. I am actively rebuying my favourite UMD titles to I can play them on my Go instead as I prefer the console and the convenience of it.
But the flow of games is just NOT FAST ENOUGH!
If you want the Go to ever succeed, please get the powers that be to listen to the posters on this blog and the forums, the rate of release for PSP titles and PS One classics is just too slow! I wait eagerly for each Friday and for the past month have been disappointed every time. I have now bought everything from the store that interests me, have $60 sat in my wallet (and nearly put another $50 in yesterday – glad I waited!)
I want to buy games and spend money, please give me some titles to actually buy or the PSP Go will be dead within months and it will all be down to lack of support from Sony!

the demos are for games that suck and there is no ps1 games this week… for months now its either crappy ps1 games or none added… where is ff9…. come on people

Correction: The Puzzle Quest version that is on sale on PSN is not the PSP version, but the PS3 version.

I’ve been waiting for months to get the PS3 version so I downloaded it last night, and then read the update notes this morning and saw that it stated that the sale title was for the PSP. I went back this morning on PSN and checked it, and sure enough, it’s the PS3 version.

Seriously how is it that i already have the themes and game form qore. how bout offering me a free download of something i havent already bought. i’m sorry but considering that all the videos leak online and the news it gives is generally a month old i really am not seeing a reason for qore except for the downloads. n since i always seem to have them already (high velocity bowling still???) there’s really no justification for me renewing my subscription.

Yesterday I made mention of the PSPGo tax. Some people made fun suggesting that I wanted PSN to do away with State Sales Tax. I am not that dumb. THE PSPGo tax is the fact that we have to pay $10 – $20 more for a download than the cost of a UMD at Gamestop or

I personally refuse to pay $39 for Dissidia when I could get it for $29 if I owned a PSP 3000.

I’m really not sure why Sony would not give us the same discount that they give retail. Especially since they do not have to pay manufacturing or distribution costs.

And before anyone says that Sony doesn’t set the prices, I’ve heard from the publishers that it is Sony that decides what to charge.

If this is incorrect, it would nice if Grace could explain how the pricing structure works.

TwinDad said:

I feel the same way, but I own a PSP3000. I would rather have the download then a UMD. But when I can get a UMD for $20 less, the download makes zero sense.


Demos are always welcome. While taking on the task of collecting requests. Does Square Enix have plans to add more PSP games to the PSP store. I would like to get digital copies (for a reasonable price) from the PSN store of many of their games.

Where is the free Dynamic Theme mentioned in the latest episode of Pulse?….I can’t find it.

Massive! Thanks :)


February 5th, 12:52 pm

I agree – why no PSOne games? How difficult can it be? Remember – we are Playstation, NOT the Nintendo VC!!

ydobp said:

February 5th, 1:06 pm

February 5th, 3:18 pm

I was listening to Podcast Beyond from IGN today and they mentioned something about a Battlestar Galactica Dynamic theme, yet there doesn’t appear to be one. Any news on this or did they just make it up?

February 5th, 7:20 pm

I think the update is great. Some awesome game demos are out. Dunno how I feel about the country pack, but I hate country, so oh well :).

SilverPR said:

February 5th, 7:52 pm

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the Heavy Rain most keep secret until today for the release of the demo early before the PSN get’s it.. How I got it I will not tell. If you didn’t started in the 4Days event since last week you will miss out early. Pity for you!!!!


steelersreds said:

February 5th, 10:08 pm

when is Shadow of Destiny for the psp going to be added. Why buy the psp go if all the latest games are not in the playstation store. If I had known from the beginning that buying a psp go would not allow me to get the latest psp releases then I or anyone else would have just stuck with the original psp.

UnholierThanThou said:

February 5th, 10:12 pm

7-11 doesn’t EXIST in my state. How the hell can I get the Kratos dynamic theme?!? I WANT IT!!! Exclusivity deals for non-national companies and stores are BULLSH!!!

HEY i have a good idea for a psp add on pack for metal gear solid portable ops and portable ops plus i was wondering if you could contact konami and see if they would make a character creator like on metal gear online for mgs 4 but like just for mgspo and mgspo plus and also like an in game thing because on this one you recruit soldier but like you can only make one character and you can customize them. i think that would be awsome so would alot of other people i know we are all mgs super fans
