Wonderful Update! A lot of great content. 5 Stars (or blocks)


March 25th, 6:20 pm

Great update.. Can you make section 8 like five dollars lower please. i have only $25 on my account. Ive been saving it for like 3 months idk.

Pathard said:

March 25th, 6:22 pm

This update was huge! I love it. Going to go download my MAG pack right now to start the night off! :P

JKar275 said:

March 25th, 6:24 pm

You really don’t expect us to pay $14.99 for Wakeboarding HD and $29.99 for Section 8 without trying out a demo first – do you, Ms. Grace Chen?

Also, when are we going to see videos for DC Universe Online?

EPGPX said:

March 25th, 6:24 pm

Holy snafu!! I used to own Perfect Weapon for the PSX but it was a bad game. So I sold it to a pawn shop. I’ll just buy it again for pure nostalgia.

KING_0F_NY_BX said:

March 25th, 6:26 pm

I hope next week we get more of the Make Believe videos and a God Of War 3 dynamic theme

silverthehedgeh said:

March 25th, 6:29 pm

omg a ps3 game is there does this mean more are on the way?

E-Phoenix- said:

March 25th, 6:31 pm

Can you guys please put some MW2, MGS, or Final Fantasy VII avatars???? You guys need to put more avatars instead of putting them every 3 weeks!

DonCalzone21 said:

March 25th, 6:32 pm

man those Heavy Rain avatars are funny looking.

When does AFTERBURNER come out?

Demonhunter84 said:

March 25th, 6:35 pm

Surprised at the update pretty huge lots of games but no demos. Also Perfect Weapon is an odd choice for a PS1 Classic thought its pretty hard to beat.

DAXAVIER300 said:

March 25th, 6:36 pm

On behave of the people who put their hard earned troubled ecomonic amount of money on the PSP Go, i’d like to add the following.

@#$@#!@(*% Grace Chen // Senior Manager, PlayStation Store

and those who don’t care enough about their customers. I am officially through. I have spent way too much money on a company that does not put forth the effort to accommodate their loyal customers with content that they are waiting for.

For those who do get the content that they want, I am happy for you. But for those looking for great games like BlazBlue and Metal Slug XX, I feel your pain and ask that you protest and write to the SCEA and voice your frustration about the customer service. Write to every top gaming media and tell them about your disstain for SCEA. This is not the top quality that we want. On the other hand I highly reccomend that you all purchase from the following game companies:


X BOX 360

Hell, The I-Phone who has a port of Street Fighter IV for heaven sake.

Either way, I highly recommend that those who are suffering from lack of content and service to protest this effective immediately.

That is all.

Demos are a must!

HorizonShadow said:

It’s not like there’s on there for a limited time. Most PS3 owners just look on friday morning, and to them – It was released right on time.

KILLZONE79 said:

Couple suprise games for me:

Section 8
Anarchy rush hour

i love suprises sony :)

Krazy_Tazmanius said:

March 25th, 6:46 pm

More 3rd party avatars please. I would like some Metal Gear or maybe a bunch of Capcom avatars.

Einstrife said:

March 25th, 6:49 pm

Man I cant believe still no BlazBlue… :( I’m starting to regret getting my PSPgo

Echo307 said:

March 25th, 6:52 pm

Hey, would it be possible to move the PSP store update to a different location? It’s getting a little old watching all the kids come in and piss and moan about the lack of PSP stuff. I swear I see the same handful of kiddies come in and swear they’re done with their PSP, only to come back next week and say the same thing.

I, for one, would not mind a more heavily moderated place where we can weed out the the babies that can’t at least make their complaints construcive and readable.

Just something to think about.

Echo307 said:

March 25th, 6:56 pm

I personally think this is a nice update. 4 out of 5, easy. The only thing I’d really like to see that we’re not getting now, is more avatars and dynamic themes (although themes have been coming faster), and maybe a little better timing when they come out.

Other than that, I’m happy.

Shakezula84 said:

March 25th, 7:00 pm

I wish my ps3 was working. And I wish more companies did downloadable games. I didn’t even know Section 8 was coming out for the ps3, and that it was downloadable.

LILBUDDY2000 said:

March 25th, 7:00 pm

Thx for a great update….Wakeboarding is AWESOME! I’m also thinking about Blue Toad and Rush Hour

Einstrife said:

March 25th, 7:02 pm

I’m not bashing the update I mean its a good update with plenty of content, just sux having a PSPgo and no feedback as to why games like BlazBlue still haven’t hit the store.

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

March 25th, 7:03 pm

Is the MAG DLC region lock???
I cant downloaded, im in Puerto Rico

shadysaiyanz said:

March 25th, 7:03 pm

Awesome update. I agree with the weird price of a video, but everything else seems rockin. hopefully we can get new avatars each week. i’ll be getting like all of them if they all have bundles. Will be getting those dynamic themes too, have some but would like them to be more then one guy standing there looking left and right.

Section 8 was unexpected too, i don’t even know much about it, had forgotten it so i gotta go do some research on it since i might get it.

Thanks Grace and PSN guys.

Thanks for the heavy rain avatars,i hope you can get some God of war III! avatars too!

acerazer1 said:

March 25th, 7:12 pm

wow that’s a lot of games. I guess that makes up for the last 7 weeks of pretty much nothing.

jeffsmither said:

March 25th, 7:25 pm

not one demo? what gives? other that that, Nice update.

DeadCell34 said:

March 25th, 7:26 pm

Not a good update.

So we get:
– a children’s mystery game (Blue Toad Murder Files. sorry, this game looks boring)
– fps of what appears to be a Halo wannabe (like Halo is a game anyone would want to ripoff, that game sucks lol)
– jet ski game (which I doubt I’ll buy, unless its as good as Wave Race for N64)
– a Monkeyball ripoff
– a racing game I’ve never heard of
– some inaccurate Sonic costumes (other than Dr. Robotnik, his is very good)

The best thing this week was the free MAG content, which is awesome.

Wow, not one, but *two* UMD legacy games.

Still missing several games that were released on UMD only since the PSPgo’s release, but hey, at least you’re trying.

I guess.

stevelvl said:

March 25th, 7:45 pm

Guess i shouldn’t waste my type lookin at these updates you guys are never gonna put in any rpg classics like xenogears, breath of fire 3 and 4, suikoden 2, vagrant story….

Velzorn said:

March 25th, 7:46 pm

Pleased to see more avatars and dynamic themes but it would be great if other big titles such as Uncharted 2 and God of War III would be given the same treatment sooner instead of later.

Happy to see the spring sale again, hopefully a few titles will be on sale that I want *crosses fingers for Savage Moon*

About the GOW3 video, I tried to download it with the special edition voucher but couldn’t because my PS3 is not connected to an USA ISP provider. I could try to download the one on the update (although I don’t see why I should pay twice for something) but what guaranties do I have that it will work this time after I pay?

PuppetShoJustice said:

March 25th, 8:07 pm

Man. I was all ready to buy the Mega Man 10 premium theme but its really disappointing. The characters racing along the bottom of the screen? Really? Why are they racing? It just seems really awkward and like nothing better could be thought up.

I mean it isn’t hard to make Mega Man look cool. You could have just gone for nostalgia factor and done the camera panning up a tall building Mega Man 2 style.

Patriotbball5460 said:

Is anyone having issues with getting their Heavy Rain Avatars to work, i bought them, went to the account management>avatar>premium avatars, and they are not

March 25th, 8:22 pm

Only thing I want from this weeks update is Rengoku! I’m going to have to put these on my PSPGo since I enjoyed them on my PSP.

That franchise plus Coded Arms = reason I love PSP games… sure theres others but those were the ones I played the most.

$25 after tax is a steal to me, except I just got SMT: Strange Journey and soon after it arrives Resonance of Fate so I’ll wait on the purchase until I finish up those two games. My PSPGo hasn’t seen much use and now I have all the games I’d want from the back collection to play on it!


March 25th, 8:26 pm

Hey does Section 8 have trophy support. Please let me know cause if it does then I will buy it. Im super excited but only play games that have trophies… Um please message my PSN ID and not through the forums with an answer. If it has trophies IM BUYING IT WOOHOO!

Glacier928 said:

March 25th, 8:27 pm

wait…Anarchy Rush Hour has a platinum trophy and its only 8 bucks? Sweet deal!

Syrlis said:

March 25th, 8:28 pm

who cares that they are putting GOW3:UE stuff up on the store. I got the UE and I was really un-impressed. The documentary sucks because they just run through the story of GOW 1&2 (I can just watch cut scenes from those if I wanted a re-cap) and they barely put in any actual greek mythology info in their, lame. As for the player skin, whoopdy doo..can’t use it to get trophies so it’s pretty pointless (just use items you collected when you play your second time through, same thing). Pandora’s box was a huge let down considering it’s made of plastic when all the photos they ever showed made it look like some thing else (other than plastic). basically the only thing that was worth getting the UE for was the art book. I’m sure you’ll be able to DL the 7 challenges eventually, so your better off just getting the things from the UE from the store if you want them (saves you a bunch ‘o money. nice MAG update btw, will have to check that out tomorrow.


March 25th, 8:28 pm

I am just so excited by how awsome the store update was tonight. As long as they keep this up I will only give them praise and more of my money. Good Job baby. Keep every week this good.

Thanks again for having sales that are available to every user! I wish Microsoft did that.

Do you think we’ll get the PixelJunk Shooter demo and a FFXIII demo soon?

What versions of PixelJunk Monsters and PixelJunk Eden are in the 3 in 1 PixelJunk Pack for $19.99 on PSN; the Encore versions or basic versions?

Have a good weekend!

Does Section 8 have trophy support? Does anyone know cause im thinking of buying it.

Glacier928 said:

March 25th, 8:34 pm


I believe it does, every game is mandatory to have trophies since January 2009…my friend bought it so whenever he syncs his trophies, i should know for sure


March 25th, 8:42 pm


Thankyou very much for the info. Then I will for sure be buying this game as soon as my payday arrives on the first. I cant wait. Sony needs to release lots of games like this for affordable prices that have trophies like section 8, trine, burnout, socom etc. Plat trophies is what its all about. Thanks again brother and send me a friend request if your interested.

djroberts said:

March 25th, 8:46 pm

Again with the lack of content for PSPGo, again with the passive aggressive customer support.

PSP Go are about $130 on Ebay now. I suppose I can just call this a wasted $100 and cut my losses.

Thanks for nothing Sony.

NeoGuardian86 said:

please bring more PSP games to the PSN guys.

Final Fantasy Tactics : War of the lions
Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core

it’d be a good place to start.
