Please bring the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme to the US Playstation Store! Anyone!?! It’s already made…all you guys got to do is put it in the US servers for download…Trust me a LOT of DS souls players will buy it! Please!

ThEosSiE said:

April 8th, 7:43 pm

Nice updated!! .. I’m definitely gonna jump on LocoRoco 2 and Patapon 2 for $8.. BUT.. What’s up with the originals?.. The first Patapon is $16 and LocoRoco is $23!! Think they should be dropped as well.. Especially LocoRoco.. right?

HatmanTc said:

April 8th, 7:47 pm

@89, yeah because we all know there haven’t been any good ps3 games in the last 12 months. man, i am so disappointed… oh wait this isn’t ’07 the “ps3 has no games” line(or variation of it) doesn’t work any more.

Findrin said:

April 8th, 7:53 pm

Looks like yet another week of saying “well, maybe next update”. SO GLAD I bought a PSP Go. I don’t think I can do this much longer. :(

ChesterHybridz said:

April 8th, 8:14 pm

Weak. XS Airboat Racing?? Seriously? Is there any criteria in picking the PSOne “Classics?” The price drops are nice, as is the FIFA Demo. Good for the Music games and LBP updates, nice to see but nothing spectacular. The rest.. lame. Another week of low expectations being met. I’m starting to forget why I look forward to Thursdays… at least tomorrow is Friday.

Tridon said:

April 8th, 8:16 pm

Hi, there. Great update this week. I was quite pumped about the LBP Incredibles costumes and the Flower soundtrack. I was just wondering if you could answer a question for me, though (and it’d be greatly appreciated if you did)? I’m from Canada. I was wondering why the US Store received a Lord of the Rings Dynamic Theme and the Canadian Store didn’t? I mean, besides the movies, our two stores are pretty much identical. Any plans for that theme to come to the Canadian Store? I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Thanks!

wanderer55 said:

April 8th, 8:18 pm

Great week for the PSP. I probably get Patapon 2 then with that price, and since it a permanent price drop I probably wait for a little bit.

mgsfoxhound2 said:

April 8th, 8:19 pm

More LBP avatars please. I like the one where sack boy is in a green dinosaur suit maybe a couple of avatars of that one.

jwood87 said:

April 8th, 8:25 pm

Thanks sony I feel like you guys are starting to put a little more effort towards the PSP Go. I am not hoping we can get some price drops on some more popular games like assassin’s creed bloodlines, or god of war chains of olympus. Any word on if or when that might happen?

Thanks

mcbuttz78 said:

April 8th, 8:29 pm

this update was good. I think spreading games out is a good idea , they cant just drop em all in one day. Just because final fantasy core not on ps go dont mean the ps ps go i dead, get real with that bs tlk. ps go has so many features top telephone companies are trying to mimic it.. Psp go aint falling off, is just getin warmed up , there 185 go games to download, i have 24 titles on my psp go. music tv and active sms telephone service. so Ha ! to the haters..

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know I am STILL up-set that you all made me stay on the pre-vious fi{rm+ware. I can no longer take joy from the up da.tes, I can no longer spend money on P.S.N., or at retail on new titles

PopeAnonymous said:

April 8th, 8:41 pm

That game you uploaded is NOT a PSone “Classic”. vagrant Story, which has been out in the EU and Japan regions for some time now, is. Please try to get that instead of this generic crappy old games no one played in their prime, and that no one wants to play now. Thanks. Better luck next week, maybe then you’ll get some of my money.

R-O-Ofaliss said:

April 8th, 8:41 pm

A huge victory for PSP go owners such as myself today. I almost cried when I saw all the price drops, especially for J&K and Motostorm.

You people complain so much, instead of seeing how much ground the content for the go is starting to cover. Firt you all complained about no Blazblue, they give it to you, and for cheaper than the UMD. Did you say thanks, no you find new reasons to complain. Now it’s no Crisis Core, calm down and be patient, good things come to those who wait.

R-O-Ofaliss said:

April 8th, 8:41 pm

J&D, sorry.

That’s buyers remorse. Next comes the grief stage, then acceptance. Just hang in there.

krae_man said:

April 8th, 8:56 pm

Sorry Ro, nothing for me to enjoy this week. I paid full price for Artic Edge, Locoroco 2, Patapon 2 & Turtle in Time Reshelled a long time ago.

Thanks for replying. I’d rather have results next week instead of a 4th reply of “we’re still trying”.

KSPRAYDAD said:

April 8th, 8:59 pm

@Krae-man

Why don’t you just assume update day is Friday. That way it is one time (actually early!) every week. Don’t sweat the small stuff man…you’ll have a heart attack young that way.

HOLY NICE.
Sony pressed the red button on the PSP PRICE DROP BOMB. im definantly gonna buy a few. too bad i already have Loco Roco 2 and PataPWN

gettinmoney662 said:

April 8th, 9:38 pm

@109, Actually, I’ve noticed that the store has been pretty much regularly updating around 5 PM PST. Sometimes it’s earlier (like this week) and sometimes it’s late, but more times than not, the store updates somewhere in between 5-5:15 PM PST.

acerazer1 said:

April 8th, 9:55 pm

Thanks for the update, but another weak one for the PSP. Really glad I decided not to get a PSP Go, seeing the severe lack of games that are downloadable. I heard you only sold 300 in Japan in the entire MONTH of January. I hope that’s not true, because that’s really embarrassing. Especially considering the fact that you sold 100,000 PSP3000 in the same country in the same exact month.

nerdmanwhippy said:

April 8th, 10:04 pm

Sigh was really hoping for more out of the update. Currently have 3 cards to activate each with 20$ and ended up only having to use one, for the only thing they added that was good. The Flower soundtrack for $2.99

Maybe next week I’ll get to spend some more money -_-‘, obviously you guys won’t care since you already had it from when I bought the cards.

I <3 you psn I really do, but lets bust out some better classics pretty please. Especially some of the ones found in the Japanese store? Our some sequels like Suikoden 2, I loved #1 and never got a chance to play #2. Not to mention I'm not paying 100$ for it on ebay.

WorstCompanyEver said:

April 8th, 10:17 pm

Good news! A UK customer has received a partial refund on PS3 from Amazon citing illegality of the update. Eu friends demand your refunds! US friends, lets go to court!

Alternizzi05 said:

April 8th, 10:29 pm

I bought TMNT Re-shelled at its new price and it never downloaded?!! all it says is TMNT: Turtles In Time Full Game Unlock 6KB ??? ANd nothing happens when i download it!!
WTF!!!!

PaperCarrier said:

April 8th, 10:33 pm

What a great store update this week! I like the new free Hustle Kings crazy table, the MegaMan 10 add-ons, the free Just Cause 2 vehicle add-on and more… Thanks!

ATFrez said:

April 8th, 10:36 pm

I’m sorry, I’m not normally one to complain, but after the last two weeks of no new demos, you finally give us one and it’s SOCCER!? Really?? Ugh…. -_-

x9248 said:

April 8th, 10:36 pm

@Alternizzi05, I also just bought TMNT. You gotta get the Demo and that 6KB file will “upgrade” it. Hope that helps.

Why does the EU Playstation blog link to the US one right at the top of the blog, yet the US blog doesn’t link back to the EU one?

Hmm? HMM?

angelspawn77 said:

April 8th, 11:40 pm

not much that peaks my interest this week, ill just be downloading the finale of the tester. The lord of the rings theme looks to be cool, but when I go to preview only pictures are there, I would like to see a bit of video please :). I might just buy it if its cool enough.
On another note I gotta say the the psone “classics” seem to be dissapointing alot lately, whats the last meaningful game released as a classic? FF8? I cant even remember, psone had some great games, id like to see more of the greats and less of the “what the hell is this?”

angelspawn77 said:

April 8th, 11:44 pm

Oh yeah and bring on some GOW avatars please!

@127, You can’t purchase anything anyways, suckaaaaa!

Spazinator said:

April 9th, 3:47 am

@128 – It’s kinda hard to say w/o any details from yo. The reason(s) can vary wildly from anything like an issue with your system to a banning due to some infraction of PSN’s Code of Conduct on your part. PSN *IS* up & running.

Was my comment deleted? I posted it last night and for some reason it was under moderation. Now it’s just completely gone.

I was only asking why the dynamic theme for Lord of the Rings never came to the Canadian store when, for the most part, the Canadian store is identical to the US Store.

Tridon said:

April 9th, 5:38 am

Why are all my comments awaiting moderation? There’s no swears or slang words in them at all.

sputnick-7 said:

April 9th, 6:34 am

I’m curious as to why there has been no response to the request for games like vagrant story (among other PSone titles). There have been multiple requests for it every week. If it is not coming, can we have an explanation as to why? if it is coming can we have an approximate time line or even a confirmation? I don’t think many of the gamers here mind waiting, but rather the lack of information/communication defeats the entire purpose of this forum.
