  • The Parappa the Rapper for PSP is $20.99 at Amazon right now, original price is $29.99 everywhere else. The PSP Store price is not too bad, but should be cheaper, its a download without any packaging cost.

  • The size of the siren downloads are really hard to swallow. :( I don’t know if I should wait for a blu ray release or if I should just delete the previous parts after I finish with one episode pack.

  • @30
    Buying anything used is always cheaper than buying it new, dur. Just cuz you’re downloading it doesn’t mean that they have to make it much cheaper than the UMD

  • nice im thinking of getting Pain

  • too bad 1942:Joint Strike has no demo…

    the new Commando game sold me with the demo!

    maybe they think it’s so short a demo would be like half the game? and then noone would need to buy it?

    i say mandatory demos for all games on PSN!

    it would make things alot easier!

  • I thought Capcom said there was a demo for 1942?

  • Any chance we’ll be seeing Um Jammer Lammy on the store? Or perhaps the PS1 version of PaRappa, so that we might be able to play it on our PS3s, without having to pay such huge prices?

  • Just got the full Siren. I see that we have to download all 12 episodes seperatly. I’m going to be REALLY annoyed if i have to have 12 seperate siren’s listed in my game list.

  • You most likely will have to pay something for the new pain expansion,just because its an entire new level and what not,but i’d imagine no more then 5bucks(hope at least)Anyway,this is a really great update,Eden coming out soon,and I believe Bionic Commando:Rearmed is right around the corner,which i’m stoked for :)

  • wow 8 gigs, i wish the blu-ray version was coming to the u.s also. (out of hard-drive space)

  • @53
    Thanks for clearing that up. I wasn’t aware that used games were supposed to be cheaper than new ones.

  • Guys, check out the notes on Parappa the Rapper. There are new features added in for the PSP – multiplayer being one of them. It’s not exactly a PSone Classic being released like Rayman last week. Looks like they did some real work and added new things to it.

    Hmm, only $4.01 in my wallet. I guess I can add $5 and get PAIN finally.

  • Nice update! Don’t slack off on the PS1 games for too long though ;) But, I’ll let it slide since we got one last week :) Looking forward to trying out PJE

  • are you guys planning on adding more psn games to the summer store sale?

  • Is there going to be a Xam’D theme coming to the PS3. I really hope so.

  • Guys, check the notes on Parappa the Rapper. It’s not a straight PSone Classic being added like Rayman last week. Multiplayer has been added and new remixes from what it says. That right there adds new playability and fun to an amazing classic.

    Interesting… no complaints about the size of Siren. EU folks through a hissy fit over in the 3Speech comments earlier today.

  • pixeljunk eden rocks!

  • Blargh!
    And I just bought PJM just a few days ago…

  • You just got my money on Pain and HVB. Nice ;)

  • WTF!

    These sales are only good for 1 week and my PS3 is off for warranty?

    Why do I have to lose out on the sale??? It isn’t my fault my PS3 messed up. I shouldn’t be punished.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sony Blows.

    I hate Sony more and more everyday for this kind of crap.

    Man why does xbox360 have to suck too? I have no other option for a great console.

  • “Kick, punch, it’s all in your mind, if you wanna test me, I’m sure you’ll find”…..
    Oh, that onion master is so freakin’ funny.
    Cool summer sale.

  • Calm yourself 70,not like anyone hasn’t had similar badluck before,eventually there will be other sales for sure.As for Siren being a big game,well yeah..they openly said its about as long as a normal game you would buy on a disc,and its not lacking any quality either,basically just means you’re getting more for your money( I now you weren’t the one complaining,but those EU players complaining doesn’t make much sense.)

  • nice store update there grace-san! wish the prices were that lower all year long. anyways, when are the psn cards going to arrive to gamestop? i have been searching for them everywhere! :(

  • how long do you think siren is? 15- 20 hours

  • 1942: Joint Strike does this have offline coop?

    does the siren full game have all the episode?

  • When downloading the PJE demo, i noticed some of the key features are trophy support and remote play, thats nice to know. Looking forward to it.

    Im also excited about the summer sale, for $5 a pop i might just go ahead and get high stakes, Rocketmen and PAIN. Already have HVB.

    Then we have the GH III pack, Siren, etc .. good update!! on another note, i was a bit surprised to see some people thought Parappa the Rapper was a PS1 classic, this title was really overlooked on the PSP, its worth a look.

  • @72

    I can’t calm myself. I requested a warranty box a 1 1/2 weeks ago and got it 2 days ago, now my PS3 is stuck at UPS due to the hurricane weather in Laredo, TX where the warranty spot is for Sony. UPS can’t get to the factory to deliver it.


  • how many levels are in this Pixel Junk Eden demo :S im on garden 3 already…seems alot of content for a demo

  • Definately sucks man,but that blame rightly goes to the hurricane and UPS i’d say.At least you don’t need to go through 3-5 PS3’s a year cuz of a hardware failure like someone else has(*cough* RROD)

  • I dont care, where are the PNS Cards ???? !!!!!!

  • @70-ywooh

    i know how you feel, i just got my PS3 back from repairs….it took about 1 month..i actually bought another PS3 in lieu and then returned that one when mine got back..

    that’s why the PS3 is waaaay better than the 360, i was able to almost recreate my PS3 ont he new one, due to the awesome PSN free login…the 360 charges $50 for every dang user and no multiple systems..and no 5-system sharing on 360..

    my 360 Elite so far hasn’t rrod’s YET (knock on wood)..but it is quite loud and runs about the same heat as the PS3

    and my Windows Vista OS is by far the gimpiest version of Windows EVER! I can’t even install Cubase or AbletonLIVE due to the poopy OS crashing, even when trying to emulate older OS’s..

    so i know what your talking about! sorry about your timing man…but i figure the good times outweigh the bad..

    it’s just quite an expensive hobby i guess!

    (still cheaper than dope and hookers)

  • $22.99 is pretty hard to swallow, as I picked up that game for the PSP at CircuitCity months ago, for 10 dollars. And… Considering that it can be run through in about 2 hours if you’re good at the rhythm games… That’s way too much if you ask me.

  • Looks like a great update.

    I do have a question. What about the video store? When does it get updated? Nobody has provided any of these details. I hope you guys get Comedy Central to participate. There’s some shows from them I want to download. Also, I think you need to add an Independent Films section filled with (of course) independent films. The video store is great but it needs to continue growing. You need more(if not all) networks and studios on board. I need Showtime on there so I can download some Weeds episodes.

    Oh, and we need some type of subscription deal. A very reasonable deal.

    One more thing. Adult Swim has a lot of shows that are only half the length of a standard show (11 mins). These episodes should either be .99 cents or bundle 2 episodes together for $1.99.

    I’m sure you guys are probably working on this. I hope so. The video store needs frequent updates. Movies and shows should be on there right after they’re released. Within the same week would be fine. Anyway, sorry for my long a$$ comment. I hope you answer my questions and address my feedback. Thanks. :)

  • NICE! I can’t wait to get home and start downloading!

  • Nice update again!
    At that price i’m gonna try high velocity bowling
    Eden demo is also welcome
    I wish i would love horror game loll because Siren looks very nice, maybe i’m gonna try the first chapters

  • Time to get PAIN I guess.

  • Yeah, i think Parappa could have been like $15 instead..

  • Those who haven’t bought PixelJunk Monsters, this is a GREAT opportunity to get one of my favorite games half price!!

  • oh i forgot in my last post…

    Could we get an answer about Canadian video store, that would be really great.
    I mean, i dont care if its not coming before 2009 but at least any info about if its coming or not anytime soon or not

  • did you know if you-tube uploading can be patch to other games?

    or does the game have to be build from ground up in order to have u-tube uploading?

  • oh ok once you get 5 specters its over, but you get to do 3 gardens. Really good demo, really good game!

  • Tical! Great update!

  • Wow that was unexpected a summer sale very nice guys, very nice indeed!. Prappa the rapper at 22.99 is a horrible rip off. I don’t know why these PSP games are costing so much, they can be bought cheaper at stores and online. I honestly don’t get it.

  • it went from 1 to 90 in an hour

  • Street Fighter 4 looks sick!!

  • Summer sale….nice.

  • The Street Fighter 4 theme is pretty lame, it is just a background and the original XMB icons with Street Fighter sounds. :-(

  • Oh nice,(91) Didn’t expect them to give you that much content in a demo of the game,can’t wait to try it out. Have all 12 Siren episodes and PJ eden demo going at once,so it’ll take me a while lol.

  • Decent update — hey, my fiancee’s name is Grace!

    Anyway, Siren probably has the worst camera of any game I’ve played in a long time. Why pay $40 to stare at the back of a guy’s head when I can go to prison and do it for free?

    Regardless, good news on the sale… bad news on the fact I bought Pain a week ago, lol. But I’m glad to finally check out Eden. It’s like flow meets Bust A Move or something. Very weird.

  • is there any trophies with the demo? i’m assuming no
