Finally, more Minis are being priced the way we were originally led to believe they would be: at $1.99! I hope there are plans in the works for more of the classic LucasArts adventure games, too. I REALLY want Sam & Max Hit The Road, Full Throttle and Day Of The Tentacle on my PS3!!! I downloaded ScummVM on my PC in order to play Sam & Max, but I can’t get the bastard to work…

    Yes, it has trophies.

phinnv8 said:

April 23rd, 10:02 am

Woulda been nice if Monkey Island came out originally on PS3, I already got it and beat it on PC so not getting it again. Classic game though for those who haven’t played it. And it would be nice to have trophies too but oh well.

Wish we could get a Castle Crashers update. And a firmware update that actually did something.

Another bad update for psp(Go) users hopefully someday we can rejoice and play games that we enjoy and want to play on our psp!

seriously judging from all the bad games(psp wise) you guys have been putting up you would think they would have released them all and start releasing games we (as a customers) want!

Hopefully next week will be different but i doubt it!

Been waiting since October of last year to have my favorite be relased on the Psn…

Picked up Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess and Hysteria Project. I haven’t tried Hysteria Project yet, but Monsters is charming, fun, and just challenging and addicting enough that it kept me up about an hour later than I wanted.

i have to agree with socksandshoes on the psone classics. i mean come on what is so classic about these games, and i for one have downloaded some of them for my son because he loves everything racing. but these games were never released in this country. how about trying to actually release games that we the consumers have actually heard of. nintendo releases atleast 1 good classic every month for over 2 years now and have around 300 games on the virtual console from the old games. why on earth do we have to endure the junk all the time. what you guys need to start doing is to actually and honestly start putting out games the way nintendo does, because i am seriously giving credence to to just getting tid of my ps3 and buying a 2nd and 3rd wii just for their classic titles, in which case they again have sony buried with the quality of older titles that are coming out. they just released another ogre battle game last week. hmmm i think i am gonna give you guys just and only a couple more weeks to actually put some real classics on the store, then if you do not keep your promise to consumers that has been made multiple times, i will be through as a sony person forever. i don’t want excuses i eant action for my money

megalodonshark said:

April 23rd, 3:08 pm

during the past month i have read about 2 games that should already be on the classics for sale, they are…
star wars dark forces
tactics ogre
these games have already been rated and permission and all has been given so just put them out already, i am just so tired of the game vids and such you are falling so far behind nintendo when it comes to classics releases!


April 23rd, 3:22 pm

Once again, WTF are they thinking with their choice of PSOne Classics to release?! These XS games are utter CRAP! The last few weeks of Classic releases have been insulting. I say fire the idiot who’s making these inane decisions. The last good game to be released was One and that was a full month ago. Dissapointment is turning into anger >:(

Great update today! Bought Monkey Island and I’ll go for Sam & Max next!
Also the Lost Planet 2 demo was great!

One thing that still bugs me, when we’re going to have Vagrant Story here? No answer from Sony, no answer from SQUARE-ENIX… I’m losing my hopes.

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

April 23rd, 9:22 pm

thanks for thoses half price games update
i brough wipeout hd last week and ratchet this week
i’m thinking about wounded dragons too cause it look good to play at 2 player mode whit my son’s and daughter + half price make me think twice… lol
anyway i have ~40$ in my account and over 63 games on disc.
i wish Socom confrontation half price for next week
it would be awesome!
i just pre-ordered today at ebgames, Red Dead Redemption!!

half price games make me forget what you done 1st april fool,
cuz i have 2 fat model; 1 x 80gb model and 1 x 160gb model
i’ve installed on each one linux for my kids computers and myself…i loose an entire week to “backup” everything my kids did… what a waste… u just had to secure the exploit and patch everything needed. but not removing feature i’m using and my entire family using too…

nyway i’m always supporting you guys since PS1 i loved every console you make my Everyday

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

April 23rd, 9:32 pm

btw: Final Fantasy 9 and Vagrant Story would be very great
+ everyone ask for it.
i need All PS1 Final Fantasy games Collection.

i have a question: why not making an application taking your PS1 games disc i insert in my PS3 and add it into my PS3 HDD automatically the same as my PS1 games in my XMB
cuz it is like funny
i have FF7, FF8, FF9 all box set original and i’m paying for something i already have since 10 years ago and collected
and taking care af every CD’s no why i cant backup thoses games since the PS3 is PS1 emulation and all thoses PS1 games i have were all my christmas and birthday gift…

Wow nice update! As usual way better than that of ours in Europe, that’s why I always download from the US store ^v^ Sssst… don’t tell SCEE hehe.

Onna76 said:

April 25th, 9:39 am

@Megalo… in Holland we have a saying… Stank voor dank, not really sure what the American expression is for that, but literally it means: stench for thanks… meaning, being ungrateful for things which others do as a great favor. At least the US store has PS classics, we in Europe may be happy with maybe 1 or 2 classics in 3 months.

venneer said:

April 25th, 2:04 pm

@175 Onna76

I hope you don’t take this the wrong (personal) way, but your logic is flawed.
We are not Sony’s best friends, we are paying costumers. They don’t update the store as a favor, they do it in hopes that we buy stuff. But, as costumers (at least the smart ones), for us to buy stuff, stuff has to be worth buying…

Saying that you are happy that “XS Moto” or whatever was release because in Europe you get 1 or 2 (presumably equally crappy) PSX games every 3 months is like saying you would love to have flaming poo on your doorstep; as long as someone left you something.

Kirkpad said:

April 25th, 2:18 pm

So it sounds as though there will be an update this Thursday, then another one on Tuesday. Crazy stuff. This will be a weird change, as a lot of of my gaming comes from the PSN.

PirateHarlock said:

April 26th, 9:28 am

Another worthless update. Stinks of desparation not innovation. These price reductions and lack of new releases is a knee jerk reaction to sonys recent lost of thousands of customers abandongint PS3 because the abysmal firmware updates this month. I like many thousands of others will nto be buying anything more from PSN store because the simple fact that SONY in its inffantile foolishness may now disable & delete it without notice.. NO WAY will I pay for software that even if I get it may dissapear at a moments notice without warning.

One playstation classic you should seriously consider to upload in to the store for download is Legend of Dragoon, me and a lot of other people would buy this game! : D

In less than an hour, the game has complete frozen on me 5 times.
I don’t care who’s at fault or who does it, but it needs to be fixed.
