Where are the rest of the MLB avatars? I’ve been asking this for over a month. The rest of the NL East is there but no Braves! How is that fair? Are you guys trying to mess with me? Lol

August 9th, 7:54 pm

well i guess its another week of the PSP owners get screwed once again, i’ve been a long time Playstation fan spending what seems to be around $5000 on content not including re-buying new systems that have been improved a tiny bit. now to only look forward to new content day to buy something cool and exciting but cant cuz sony failed me once again. it just seems thats what keeps happening over and over again when sony bites off more than they can chew. I’m hoping things can change with how sony playstation does things. cuz once the vita comes out it better rock my world meaning the vita better be doing exactly what the iphone4 including the app store. and if the vita doesn’t do that within a years time after launch then i’m going to be completely done with playstation brand only to chill and relax for a few more years until things get better. I’m just tired of putting in all my passion, time, trust and loyalty into something and always being let down. so much they promised at the beginning and still having delivered

Crappy update is crappy. Clearly, Sony doesn’t give a [DELETED] about the PSP users anymore. Sorry, Sony, as long as I own UMDs, I will never buy your overpriced Vita brick.

An update. It was well due. I been asking and wanting sony to produce another update. We PS3 plus members want it we got it.

Thank you sony!

Luminaire28 said:

August 9th, 9:37 pm

Is there some kind of schedule you guys can release so we know when/if those ps1 games that are on the ESRB will be released? To the person talking about Final Fantasy 5/6 being released on multiple systems. I have Final Fantasy Anthology on ps1, my copy of FF5 does not work on ps2 or ps3 because of some save glitch caused by the ps1 emulation. Not my fault, that’s Sony’s fault. All i ask for is a way to finally play through FF5 without having to buy a second hand ps1 or greatest hits FF Anthology. In a perfect world i’d be able to play my copy, but right now paying for it on PSN is my cheapest alternative and no i will not buy it on a portable system, i don’t do portables.

Anyhoo, ETA on Final Fantasy VI?

August 10th, 3:34 am

Last weeks update was weak but this weeks update is simply AWFUL.
Not a single new game this time? What a disappointment.
Considering this dire situation continues now already for several weeks this is immensely disappointing!
I haven’t spend a Dollar in ages on PSN.
Please, Sony, try to avoid for next year that while 360 has an especially strong period with Summer of Arcade we PSN fans get the boot with having an extra awful period with hardly any releases.

August 10th, 4:46 am


Why do I even read this garbage anymore. Have money in my wallet for 2 weeks straight and not a thing to buy.

And just ONE avatar released this week. OUT OF ALL OF SONY’S LIBRARY, we get one more. Pathetic Sony.


Grognard66 said:

August 10th, 4:46 am

The Far Cry 2 pricing is a joke but everyone is blaming the wrong company. Publishers set pricing on their product – not Sony (unless it’s Sony published, of course). Far Cry 2 is also $30 on Games on Demand for the 360.

DJNorthSky said:

August 10th, 5:43 am

@206 have you tried a pc emulator that runs your disc? There are some out there. Put the disc in the drive and play it on your pc. You aren’t downloading a free copy, so conscience should be clear. SE had a hicup on FF Chronicles. FF4 wouldn’t work for the small PSX but did work on the PS2.

DJNorthSky said:

August 10th, 5:57 am

I know it may not seem like an attractive option, but instead of waiting on SE…

A nearly 3-year-old, overpriced, multiplatform downloadable addition to the store does NOT qualify as a weekly “Downloadable Game” update.

PSN users are the WHINIEST ungrateful people I’ve seen on a gaming console. Ever since the outage of April 19th I’ve sat by quietly watching as people whined and moaned about this and that, and enough with the cross game chat! Being annoying is not going to get you it any faster. I’m glad I at least don’t have to pay 50 or so dollars a year just to play online. So try to tone down the B****ing and show a little appreciation for what Sony has done for you so far.
