Hi Everyone – It’s time for the weekly PlayStation Store Update.

Braid ($14.99)
Braid is an artful puzzle-platformer where the player manipulates the flow of time in strange and unusual ways. In each world, time behaves differently, and it is time’s strangeness that creates the puzzles. The time behaviors include: rewinding, independent time streams, time that is tied to space, parallel realities, time dilation, and perhaps more.
Braid treats the player’s time as precious; there is no filler. Each puzzle shows the player something new about the game world.

  • Nice update.

    But I wonder… since Tecmo is it realizing content for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 can I ask if a patch will coming soon. The Co-op its almost unplayable with all those lags between players, even with my neighbors the game still lagging like crazy and some mission are almost impossible to beat with the constant lag and with lame A.I. if you choose to plasyer the mission @ solo.

    Can someone enlight me about this possibility… Sony? Jeff…? Anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Horrible PSP update.

    Pinball Heroes is simply way overpriced for what it is. They are GameBoy Advance quality tables. They remind me of Pinball of the Dead and PacMan Pinball on GBA. Even Zen Pinball on the PS3 is cheaper and those tables are vastly superior to these. Also, the Williams Collection for both PSP and PS3 are not only cheaper but far superior as well.

    Where are the PSP demos Sony? Where are the demos for the new overpriced pinball games?

    Where are the new PSP games to download that have had UMD releases in the past week?

    Where is Pinball Hall of Fame:The Williams Collection to download for PSP?

    Is anyone there? Do you guys have a clue?

  • No one cares about the PS Store. Wake up the Japanese team and tell them to turn the presence server on so we can play MW2 online. This is retarded.

  • Sweet.
    Might pick up Braid!

    But please can some one relay the message from fourzerotwo to the Sony Japanese Team to turn on the Presence Server!!!!
    According to him its the only thing preventing invites in MW2!!!!!!!!!

  • Glad we finally got a new dynamic theme, and it’s a GOOD one no less! (already saw a youtube video) Just need to get a good flow of them coming now. I imagine a lot of devs are working on some now, and learning from the others that are already released, as far as what works and what is a waste of money.

    A sizable update though, regardless of weather or not any of it interests me. If anyone has any worries about Red Alert on PS1, trust me- using the D-pad as a mouse isn’t as bad as you may assume. I loved this game back in the day. (had the Retaliation version)

  • Star Trek DAC? Awesome. I’ve been waiting for this one. Thanks!

  • Yay for Kenka Bancho! I only heard about it today, but my experience with the previous games means an immediate buy without waiting to visit a store. Nice!

  • When can we expect Record of Agarest War? I checked the game’s wikipedia page and it says the North American PSN release should be out November 9. That struck me as odd because Nov. 9 was not a Thursday. I half expected it to be here today, though, but it’s not. Can’t trust that Wikipedia. So when’s it coming? Any estimate?

  • $40 for a downloadable portable game is insane. You are idiots for thinking people will pay that.

    itunes albums cost less then CD’s. You cant just pocket the savings from not having to manufactur the disk/manual/shipping etc.

    OCT NPD’s already proved the PSP Go’s price was dumb, hurry up and realise that your downloadable game pricing need changing too.

  • Pretty good update i’m downloading the ncaa basketball 10 demo.

  • Dave702@
    Error 80022a07? Just wait and it will fix by itself… nothing to worry about.

    Great update, downloading Braid…

  • Sigh…why did I buy a PSPgo again? And the Ratchet and Clank theme is horrible btw. An old wallpaper with a clock in front of it when there’s already a clock on the XMB. This is the first update that I couldn’t find anything I liked.

  • I seconded #22 suggestion. And an ok update.

  • Pretty good update i’m downloading the ncaa basketball 10.

  • Nice update especially having braid up way to go! My question remains when is castle crashers making its way to PS3?

  • Is tank battles something different from battle tanks?

  • wow all day for this piece of crap. I think this is the second worst update ever, only slightly not as sucky as the one for the second week of the psp go launch, glad i didn’t trade in my 3000 for that crap, that gets next to NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!

  • Still no avatars?

  • Dont buy the $4 pinball tables. Buy pinball Hall of Fame instead. You get 11 tables for $10.

    Dont support Overpricing that that.

    All 4 boards should have been a $5 or $6 mini.

  • hefty update but wasnt really lookin forward to anything in this weeks list

    keep the content movin guys

  • Grace,

    Please see what can be done (and let us know) if the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme will be made available to us.


  • Nooo! ;_;
    I was hoping to see the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme… :(

  • NBA team’s themes?

  • tonight i will kill myself and the letter i leave will say “why sony why”

    just kidding

    but still i can’t take it no more, lack of games & all this money in my pocket sony u do the math.
    u people been F**king up since the release of ps3 so who ever is in charge needs to be fire NOW.

    Ps.Grace stop writing ur updates so enthusiastically cuz u & me know that these update suck a**

  • good update, but why so late :P

  • Still no Flower soundtrack :(. Hopefully if it doesn’t come out by then it will make a good Christmas present, but the sooner the better. I like some of the stuff that did come out today though.

  • Well now we know why the update took so long. They wanted to leave their offices afterward as soon as possible so they wouldn’t have to deal with the complaining XD

    I didn’t get what I wanted from this update either but whatever. I’m just glad I don’t own a psp GO right now…

  • I would really like it if you guys focused less on Home which i’m sure the 10 people that use it wouldn’t mind and focus on avatars, themes, firmware updates (less Store icons please) etc, etc.

  • Oh I see thanks. I didn’t remember a game tank battles, but I remember battle tanks. I will probably buy it at the reduced price next week.

  • Hey, I’m loving the Pinball game for PSP! Too bad they are each priced at $3.99. So far I bought the Uncharted one, and I am loving it! It also has trophies which I LOVE! Sony should add trophies to their PSP games!! It adds more dept. Anyways great job on Pinball, please consider a Pinball pack so more people will buy this great game!!

  • what do you idiots want then? i see a lot of complaining about pointless things… avatars and themes… whining about the Go! despite having over 175 games on the store not including minis, and just generally whining, if you think you can do better, get a job at sony and make it better, otherwise go back to whatever hole you crawled out of

  • lol, Coramoor_, you make a great point! Everyone loves to complain! I just like making suggestions instead, maybe Sony consider. And for Jasoncps, did you even play the Pinball Hero game to say it looks like GBA? I don’t think so!!

  • Coramoor, 175 games suck a** thats y we complain but since u love the wack stuff u should not be even on this broad.

  • @64

    agreed man! i’m still waiting for Castle Crashers also. The Behemoth said by the fall but no date was officially announced yet. Hopefully soon though.

  • When can we expect a LittleBigPlanet demo for PSP???

  • @blugre

    well then name the specific games you want, what are they, what are the circumstances?

  • I’ve been waiting for Braid! Thanks =)

  • I wish Rock Band would good song than of sponge bob -_- Then again no one likes my kind of music :X Good update anyways :D

  • im sorry but what the heck happened to the LITTLEBIGPLANET PSP demo that you have been talking about for the last ,um, how many weeks now? i just would really like to know how the controls work and all that.

  • Ratchet & Clank Dynamic Theme!

    Not so good for PSP this week but I’ll probably get the Uncharted Pinball

    Final Fantasy VIII next week please

  • Is there something wrong with the Minis approval process in NA? Other regions get minis but they don’t get released in NA, even though they have been rated already by the ESRB (in some cases, for months).

  • Suggestions:

    Final Fantasy VIII for ps1 classics…
    Also Parasite eve 1 and 2 would be nice but i wont hold my breath…

    Maybe a LBP PSP demo…..or something….

    This update was really crappy imo…but maybe the next one will be awesome…
    You may be doing some really silly things sony but i will always support you and your consoles….Great games as always

  • I don’t think an LBP demo is coming, the game releases next week. Though what was the point of announcing a demo if it’s not going to be on the store before the full game is?

  • Still no Final Fantasy VIII and Final Fantasy IX? You guys are really falling behind. The PS1 classics are so few or they are ones I don’t even care about like that stupid ass bowling game. Xenogears, Legend of Dragoon, Final Fantasy 8&9, and Chrono Cross would be very nice. Is it that hard to make a PS1 classic? Here I got a better idea. Make it so we can rip our own PS1 games to the PS3 and be able to transfer it over to PSP. I mean we already paid for the game. Why not let us be able to play it on PSP? Also where is that Rockband Unplugged Slim I herd about???? Also where are some more action packed psn downloads? The only game I bought was Bionic Commando Rearmed. It was fun and kept me interested for a while. Now I’m just buying old games from ebay and Gamestop to keep me interested. I don’t care what you guys have to do. Get a more PS1 classics that don’t suck.

  • when can we see some premium avatars?

    is great that u guys are putting out new dynamic themes but u guys need to add like 5 new dynamic themes every week and 5 new avatars every week.

  • I went to WalMart with a friend today and he got MW2. And there on the rack was LittleBigPlanet for PSP. I made them open the case so I could make sure it wasn’t an advertisement. It was the UMD for sure. I could have been playing LBP on my PSP today, but I sold my 3000 for a Go. Unbelievable.

  • wth no demo from mw2

  • why do you guys care so much about premium avatars? They’re probably going to cost money, and no one sees them anyways. How about instead of complaining about avatars, you go and use your ps3 for what it was intended for: playing games. Not seeing who has the more expensive avatar.

  • Not liking the $15 psn titles – I draw the line at $10. I can never resell these games when I am done or tired of them nor can I let a friend or family borrow it to try.

  • not a good update. inferno pool is already out why not put the demo out the same day it’s release . at least you did one thing right and put star trek demo up with the full game. again not a good update.
