  • LBP was the first with the dynamic theme as well so i hope to see a bunch mofre form different games too (more than 5) come the next update :D

    Thanks for Battle Fantasia, i was really wanting it and was hoping for it for the last few weeks and didn’t get it so i was sure it wouldn’t be in this one. Thanks :D Will get Totopai now, been pondering on getting it.

    So my buys for this update:
    -LBP Avatars (Gotta see what they are like though)
    -Battle Fantasia
    -Heavy Rain Dynamic Theme

  • Sad for the final update of the year. When the store loaded I actually stared in disbelief for a second, thinking that perhaps all the new content hadn’t loaded yet. Oh well, we’ll see what 2010 brings.

    How about the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme and Hustle Kings!?! Seriously. Where are they?

  • Why can’t Battlefield 1943 just be $9.99? lol

  • Crap. I knew this would happen.

    I’m happy about the Premium Avatars and everything, but why only release one set? Now EVERYBODY is going to have a LittleBigPlanet avatar. You guys couldn’t release a few packs based on a couple of different games?

    Side note: In the future, can we get some Final Fantasy avatars? Possibly VII, VIII, XIII or Versus XIII? Maybe you guys can talk to Square about that. =]

  • Just to let people know , you cant share avatars.

  • Finally more avatars! Thank you so much Sony

    Now we need Demon’s Souls, Valkyria Chronicles, MGS4, Batman AA, etc. avatars, please and thank you.

    Also, Demon’s Souls costumes put up on US Home, since they’re only in JP Home.

  • Looks like we all get coal for christmas.

  • aw the game i want is not for sale =C

  • Well at least you finally put up some avatars. Please don’t wait 4 months to give us more.

  • How dare you guys charge for sackboy avatars!
    Especially when we’ve had the same crap avatars for THREE YEARS! I can’t believe we’re still waiting on avatars for franchises like MGS, infamous, Heavenly Sword, Katamari, Bioshockm Rock Band, and Demon’s Souls.

    I can’t believe you’re charging US to promote YOU.

  • sony where are your new games and old ps1 titles? geesh this long in and still a handful of rpgs. Whatever happened to releasing a game no one saw coming. For me this update is a weak week and its supposed to be 2 weeks worth. Good year weak week wow us don’t amaze us with mini support then no tetris…

  • Grace,

    Now before I start to buy, are the PSP minis FINALLY playable on the PS3? The update had mentioned Dec. 17th, but I want to be sure before I purchase them that the compatibility is there. Thanks. Happy Holidays!

  • oh man so buying burnout bundle even though i beat it 101% on xbox I think I’m going to do it again. Be part of the elite 202% crowd.

  • My GOD!!!!

    Heavy Rain Dynamic Themee!!

    hope this game sells really well coz’ i want to see more from Quantic D.


  • Way to become Microsoft Sony… kudos on charging for avatar pix. Jerks

    61: don’t get too excited, some of the sites I frequent say that Heavy Rain isn’t all that. Pretty boring actually.

  • Wow, finally premium avatars have arrived bought time :)

  • where’s hustle kings i want to buy myself a gift!! noooo!!!!

  • The Hasbro Family Game Night is priced at $27.99 in the store while its listed at $29.99 here.

    Just wanted you guys to know about this little mistake.

  • Oh yeah also you guys are effing jerks for saying all Minis would be playable on PS3 then lo and behold Tetris doesn’t work on PS3.

    Screw you guys.


  • Dang! You ruined the Heavy Rain Dynamic Theme! Why did you make it sway!? That’s annoying! You should make the screen stay still! Everyone else I talked to thinks the swaying sucks.

  • Have Great Christmas Grace and everyone else too glad. I save my 15 bucks now it’s hard to choice now :).

  • Great update for the holidays! No Hustle Kings tho? I got it on EU store and its a great game, definitely one for you to look out for in the US. Jealous you guys got LEGO Indiana Jones and peggle demo’s though.

  • FINALLY! the dam avatars are here,looks like they are starting to roll them out.

  • I want Vagrant Story…….Is it possible to buy games off the European psn store if you live in America? I was really looking forward to playing that game when I heard the announcement that the european psn store was going to get it as its one of the few psone rpgs I never had the opportunity to play so I really want to get it. We seriously need some more psone RPGs like Japan has over here on the US psn store…we are hella lacking.

  • @nYcFrEeWiLL82,

    The “LittleBigPlanet Pirates of the Caribbean Level Kit” is definitely available right now in the PlayStation Store.

    In fact, it’s the top item in the “New LittleBigPlanet Releases” page which you can easily go to from the main screen’s “New Releases”.

  • @ 71 Kirazero00

    Buy a £££ PSN card off of and input the code into your UK account…

  • why in the hell we got to pay for avatars thats such bs, god i hate the monetary system, everything needs to be free cause without the consumers testing the systems and games there wouldnt be a sony

  • 72 sorry

  • this is a horrible update, yall really sucked alot of my holiday spirit out with this crap. i have to wait till 9 o’clock for it to update then everything on there is garbage, even the free stuff is crap. yall need to get hooked up with the eu bunch and let them give yall some pointers.

  • thanks almighty-slayer..kind of feel like an idiot for not thinking of doing that myself.

  • Was going to buy the Heavy Rain theme, but the preview looked disappointing. I hope for better dynamic themes next year (ie; LBP theme at changes with time).

    Was going to buy some avatars, but the ones available look a little bland.

    Oh well, at lease I got the LBP pack.

    Wish everyone has a happy holiday.

  • Minis are playable on the PS3, except for Tetris and the new Bowling 3D Game. Why, we don’t know…(licensing?). The EU blog mentioned this, anyway.

  • im completly rejecting this update because i wanted Hustle Kings. i would say its no fair europe gets it before us but they go through alot of BS.
    btw. i dont know if you read these Grace but can you like…. respond to our comments? like the EU blog guy. hes funny. just post responses and stuff.

  • No problem Kirazero00 i am from the UK myself and have often used that trick to buy US PSN cards when we get a rubbish update :)

  • Hey Grace I finally got around to reading up on why the trailer we got a few weeks ago for Neir was what it was….. You can let Square Enix know I will not be buying the game now because we’re not getting Neir Replicant.

  • hi that was a nice updates again, I just want to know for the fallout dlc if its possible to do something for me because i buy all the expansion when they came out and now you get put them in french in the store i dont want to buy them all again ….. please give me a word, and keep up the good work guy AND HAPPY HOLIDAY !!!

  • how do I download PSN avatars?

  • As much as I hate to complain, you’d think that after over three years with no new avatars, Sony would throw us a bone and offer a few for free. Nope.

    I can understand why you aren’t giving away animated themes, but no free avatars is a little ridiculous when you consider that one person with a basic knowledge of photoshop could produce that many avatars with only a few hours of work.

  • Wow, that’s a pretty good sale. This is a decent update, just in time for the holidays, thanks

  • I’ve just downloaded PULSE and I’ve enjoyed watching all of the editions from when it first came out. How Do I get into the MAG open Beta? I new to the PSN and I was playing Resistance Retribution online.


  • I made a comment a few post ago, I like what i got, but for “premium” avatars, i thought they were animated or something, they’re just regular images. They could have been added to the rest. i figured the moon avatar like slowly spun or something, but it doesn’t.

    I’m really just happy to finally get a new avatar though :) more please.

  • Holy hell, Wing Commander IV!!!!

  • I had to downrate to 3 stars. Charging for a holiday theme? Plus no Hustle Kings. Will some companies offer premium avatars for their games for free in the future? Seems like it would be a good way to show appreciation to your fans that actually bought the game. I’m thinking Media Molecule could have given us an avatar or premium theme for free for the holidays instead of last year’s costumes. At least one of them. It IS free advertisement. Still, there a few purchases I’ll think about when I get paid tomorrow. Happy holidays, Sony.


  • Gonna get the LBP Pirates pack it looks awesome! That thing should be advertised in comercials or something

  • Please respond to this comment:

    Is this some sort of glitch, or is Sony being pathetically cheap? I have a PSN Master Account and two Sub-Accounts on my PS3, and whenever I download anything from my Master Account, whether it costs money or is free, the download is automatically made available to the two sub-accounts on the system. But when I just downloaded three Premium Avatars, they weren’t available to any of the sub-accounts, and it appeared as if the avatars would have to be purchased independently by each sub-account. I’m hoping that this is some sort of glitch, because after months of blatantly lying to consumers about when Premium Avatars would be available, it would be repulsive if Sony made it so that sub-accounts weren’t able to access avatars purchased by their master accounts.

    Thank you.

  • People are saying this is the final update of the year…why is there no update next week? So this crappy update is all we get for like 2 and a half weeks (until Thursday Jan 7th)???

  • Just dawned on me. If you’re going to offer a “Premium” PSN experience…..would that include unlimited access to “Premium” avatars?
