DNAgent said:

September 14th, 4:41 pm

Are we ever going to get some avatars that AREN’T by Capcom? That company doesn’t interest me and they’ll never get any of my money. Why not put some avatars up that are worth buying? Not rehashes or street fighter & mega man avatars. How about avatars from Killzone, God of War, ModNation Racers, MGS4 (NOT Rising), & Mortal Kombat. You know, games that are actually GOOD.

Grace and Ro,

Great update, I can’t believe my eyes. 4 psp games and a ps1 classic. Best update in a while. Please bring more psp legacy titles to the store in future updates. There are still some key psp titles missing from squaresoft, atari, and even sony (were are your atv games?). Would also like to see the Warhammer games available in the psn store (europe has them) squad command and blood ball. Also like to see aqua panic and exit 1 and 2 available for download. Please update some of the psp game prices to match their umd counterparts (tekken, soul caliber, persona 1, etc) they’ve been in the store too long to be 39.99. Great update over all, keep up the great work. Thanks for reading.

Korlithiel said:

Some excellent price drops, run of the mill expectations in regards to PSP content, and again close to nothing in terms of PS1 classics.

John-Shooter said:

September 14th, 4:43 pm

alot of content today but nothing to get all hyped about.. alot of boring crap.. and nothin at all for ps+..

you guys better up the incentives for ppl to even get ps+ seriously..

im gonna go back to the beta i should be playin on PS3 now..

If anyone from squaresoft is reading this, I can deal with a m(hopefully) delayed Kingdom Hearts psp release, but throw us a bone and release at least one of your other mysteriously missing psp titles to the psn store!!!

Nice update but nothing I really want. My question is how can SONY have a PlayStation 15th Anniversary without PS2 games on PSN. There’s PS3, PSP, PSOne Classic, Minis & Downloadable games on PSN. But NO PS2 GAMES on PSN.

How can SONY have a 15th Anniversary without PS2 games on PSN?

where’s the gopher and golf kart for modnation? modnation monday reported we were getting those in this update, but alas, they are not there. :( been meaning to get monkey island 1/2 and the magic orbz add-ons, you got some money from me just now .. :)

Space Invaders Infinity Gene looks promising and Worms 2: Armageddon looks awesome – however i am refusing to buy until Team 17 decides to release Alien Breed: Impact….microsoft had it 2 months ago and EU PSN had it 3 weeks ago. C’MON make it happen….!!

SkyNet003 said:

September 14th, 4:56 pm

I should have waited for this sale before getting Mega Man 9 at $10 two years ago.

Seriously, a glorified NES rom is not worth $10, so I’ll wait ’till 2012 to get Mega Man 10 at a more realistic and reasonable price.

Bummed that i submit new ideas ideas to PS share everyday and none of them go through. They are solid ideas, I’m wondering if i got banned? Are you muzzling PS fans who are contributing feedback,constructive criticisms, and feature suggestions? Feel like i don’t have a voice in the community anymore.

AZ929 said:

September 14th, 5:03 pm

How many times are they just going to add more Street Fighter avatars? Are they just going to through the whole series? I’m usually not the one to be picky about these sort of things, but it’s kind of lame. Sony has a roster of exclusives that could use some avatars.

ProjectInfiniti said:

September 14th, 5:04 pm

So sad to see that idiots exist under PS+…

THE UPDATE IS NEXT WEEK PEOPLE.

Britton1207 said:

September 14th, 5:05 pm

@skynet – if $10 is too much for you to pay for MM9 and/or MM10, then it’s clearly not made for you. I own MM9 for every system, and I still think it was worth every cent. MM10..meh..it was good, but not buy it 3 times good. Still very much worth $10, though.

A “glorified nintendo rom” for $10 is still far more value for your money than some games that have come onto PSN/XBL for $15+. There are plenty of games in that price range that last LESS time but have better graphics. I would say worse graphics but a better game is definitely the better value.

akaKEYSERSOZE said:

September 14th, 5:05 pm

Also Soviet Strike is coming up as $5.99, no big deal but who prices these things up, time for their Pink Slip.

Grace-

I see the Secrets of monkey island games available each for $4.99. But i cant find the Special edition bundle for $7.49 for both of them as you stated in the post. I did a manual search in the store for it and it shows up, but when I click on it it says content not found. What gives? Id really like to purchase it.
