Last two weeks have been better than usual. Honestly, even the DS hasn’t put out anything worthwhile since Zelda.

But, I really wish we could get PSPs Downstream Panic, Final Fantasy Tacitcs, and Crisis Core (please, please, please).

I would also like to see some real PSOne classics like: Chrono Cross, Dino Crisis 2, Clock Tower, Vagrant Story, Parasite Eve.

But, most important, I want to see the prices on PSN reflect the prices at Gamestop and Amazon. Why do I have to pay $10 or $15 more for a game than somone who owns a PSP 3000?

Unfortunately, I think Sony has given up on the PSP in America. And I blame every pirate that decided it was their right to download illegal copies of games.

What would have made the tester better is at the end of the eposode – show all the pictures so the viewers can see how hard the test was (without the incredible stress).

February 19th, 9:30 am

at the end of ’09, i saw all these great games coming out on the psn and a whole list of games to come out for the psp. because of that, i turned all my best buy giftcards i got for presents into playstation netword cash. gotta say, i really regret that now, cuz im left with a lot of money in the psn wallet and hasnt been much to buy since…well, before christmas.

this by no means is to say that ps3 hasnt gotten good stuff to buy, but thats because they have indie games like flower and zen pinball. the psp doesnt really have any good indie games, we get over priced “minis” that really just terrible.

i dont want avatars, i dont want premium themes, i dont want videos . i just want games to play on my portable gaming console. stop making the psp store this whole black veil about whats coming out. if you have some psone game that just needs final approval, make some kind of announcement like ” [classic psone] is almost ready, should only be a few weeks”.

SDkngsht said:

February 19th, 9:39 am

i love how massive the updates have been lately. Assassin’s Creed DLC is a must & any & all Buzz trivia packs are always welcome.

also…i know i keep saying it but can we get a PixelJunk Monsters 2 or a third island DLC for the first game? THE PEOPLE WANT IT!

UnstoppableOne said:

February 19th, 9:41 am

How about the GOW3 demo that everyone’s played but me?

urienji said:

February 19th, 9:41 am


I totally agree. Why can Gamestop and Amazon give me a release schedule that stretches months into the future, but PSN can’t.

I’m also pretty disgusted that Sony never responds to anyone on their boards (although, Grace did respond to me a few weeks ago). People have legitimate complaints and Sony should address them.

But, I have found a few game gems that I don’t think I would have discovered if there was more on PSN – Tokobots and Dracula X and Jeanne D’Arc.

CrippledHustla said:

February 19th, 9:42 am

this is the first time i’ve seen 3 psone classics released at the same time. the thing is they all suck… quality not quantity… why dont you stick to releasing greatest hits before bothering with stupid games like this

mrmotosuwa68 said:

February 19th, 9:57 am

Anyone else have/had trouble with the Marvel Capcom 2 download?I get a 6kb full game install unlock which happens but no game appears anywhere.It’s in my download list as just that which seems odd but they did take my money immediately.Any suggestions?

depward said:

February 19th, 10:18 am

Still peeved about you guys saying how you can download the Eye of Judgment Legends demo and, in fact, you can’t.

matsam88 said:

February 19th, 10:46 am

Wait, why is the Assassin’s Creed 2 DLC more expensive on PSN than on XBL?!

oly1kenobi said:

February 19th, 10:51 am

ya $1 more for reg map and $3 more for bonuses… wth?

oly1kenobi said:

February 19th, 10:52 am

mrmotosuwa68 u need to download and install the demo.. u bought and got just the code to unlock the demo to reg game!

Gone are the days of the FREE Themes, I guess. Boo! Checked the state of unemployment and the economy lately, Sony? It’s just a theme.

@oly1kenobi…got it and thanks alot for the help!

Tried watching the Tester. It’s bad, real bad.

Sony should focus more on games and less on bad reality shows.

Truly awful.

Final Fantasy XIII DEMO PLEASE (Square-enix) if your looking here. we was promised a demo=) Japan has had a demo for months (go figure)… But update was not that bad Got me some DLC fo AC2. =)

good job with more avatars, we need mature and explicit ones too like a Vajay Jay

PuckMercury said:

February 19th, 11:53 am

Please … ffs … just tell us what the deal with the Dragon Age DLC is. At this rate, the full expansion will be out before this DLC

OMGitb said:

February 19th, 12:29 pm

If Sony doesn’t begin to release some good PSP games for download, I’m going to “release” my PSP Go into the river and watch it float away. That would at least be something entertaining I could do with it.

February 19th, 2:22 pm

ok so ive been waiting for the AC2 DLC and its here but i think that you should have seperated the Arsenal Shipyard from the others cause that specific location was only available in the Black edition which was only available in Europe,i got the Master Assassin Edition from Gamestop with the other 2 already

Major_Jae said:

February 19th, 2:32 pm

I want to know when the Modern Warfare 2 Map pack comes out I know itll be out sometime in the next 5 weeks but I want to know which week!

All Qore subscribers and purchasers of February’s episode (#21) can now visit Episode 21’s Download Center to download The Eye of Judgment LEGENDS demo for the PSP/PSPgo
Such CRAP!!!! Give me my demo please or my $3.20! Thank you

iNexxFear said:

February 19th, 3:42 pm

Hey, what the heck happend to the AC Sequence 13 downloads? First errors now gone!

NOT FAIR… I haven’t even had a chance to download the things… What gives! Please share…

fribee said:

February 19th, 5:29 pm


exactly. even an industry like comicbooks always has a schedule a week in advance that gets stuff added onto as to what will be available that week.

i dont even expect sony to give a solid release date on some games back catalog games, just some kind of list on what titles they’re hoping to get up, which ones they’re working on, and which ones they have no plans on. just some kind of list i can look at and say to myself “huh…Ys is coming out, got something to look forward to”

OleGunnar said:

February 19th, 7:14 pm


Would you mind describing to us exactly what your responsibilities are as “Senior Manager, PlayStation Store”?

I have to say that part of the problem that exists here is that you hardly ever reply to inquiries listed on your weekly PlayStation Store Update post. Your lack of communication is irritating and it would be nice if someone at Sony would put somebody in charge of this that actually seems to care…perhaps Mike Kebby on the EU PlayStation Blog. He replies…a lot.

A quick scorecard comparing replies made by you and Mike for your respective Store Updates this month:

Feb 4th:
Grace: 3
Mike: 28

Feb 11th:
Grace: 0
Mike: 34

Feb 18th:
Grace: 0
Mike: 43

So Mike averages 35 replies a week to the EU store update and you average 1! Seriously?

Sony, if someone is the voice that connects with your community, please make sure they actually take the time to do more than just Copy/Paste the update and load it to the Blog each week!

And by the way, where in the world is the Demon’s Souls Dynamic Theme already? Japan has had it for 5-6 months now.

Tyjet88 said:

February 19th, 8:29 pm

Any plans on reimbursing the customers that bought the Assassin’s Creed II DLC? I paid $9.99 and it’d be nice to have that $3 back to put towards another purchase.

Please bring Die Hard Trilogy and Alien Trilogy for the PS1 Classics. Thank you!

February 19th, 11:26 pm

i like to read most of the comments before i submit mine and its cus a lot of people say the same thing. I got A LOT for my ps3 this week, I mean a lot!!…………but my psp didnt get much. I have the money to spend and I WANT to spend money on it but I dont understand why no good content recently. I love my ps3 and psp but spend MOST of my time on my ps3. I hope you guys put out better content. Even ps1 classics that I know about. I wouldnt mind dino crisis 2, parasite eve….something. I have only heard of mass descruction, but the other 2 I never knew they existed till now. I guess I’ll just wait till next week for my psp. Thanks a lot for all the ps3 stuff. I spent almost 40$ on ps3 stuff and I’m a poor college student. thanks. oh and the tester is awesome thanks for making it free!!!

depward said:

February 20th, 7:53 am

Saw you did a strike-through for those who just purchase Feb’s Qore. This is new. However, at the time you were advertising it. And that’s why I bought it. Who can I contact to get my $2.99 refund? This is ridiculous. Promising content then saying “nope!” a day later.

KidCommando said:

February 20th, 8:10 am

@227 – OleGunnar

You are so right!

KidCommando said:

February 20th, 8:19 am

I guess 232’s comment cements 227’s comment as truth.

You pull something like that and you still, STILL, haven’t made a comment?

Enjoy your weekend Grace!

ziggurcat said:

February 20th, 8:55 am

i have to say that until they do something about the egregious price difference with the AC2 DLC between the PSN and XBL i will not be spending my money.

ziggurcat said:

February 20th, 9:05 am

which i guess they’ve adjusted now. at least they’re listening.

So I was promised content… and, after shelling $2.99 for the eye of judgment legends demo and not being able to download it, you just do a strikethrough like “WOOPS! Our bad!” That’s fraud. So much crap right there… absolutely ridiculous.

pluMmet said:

February 21st, 3:43 pm

“and purchasers of February’s episode (#21)” crossed out…

Pay $3.00 for the episode to get the EoJ Legends demo then see if I like Qore or not is a good way to go. But making people pay for a year. You guys are money WH*$ES
