  • There hasn’t been a good update SINCE NOVEMBER. This has me worried…. it’s like Sony has decided to give up. Where are the awesome PSN games like Critter Crunch, Trash Panic, Shatter, Wipeout, etc? Nowhere to be found this year, it seems.

  • where is the echoshift Special Offer ? i can’t find it. just the echoshift demo and trailer is there

  • LOL @ this update. It would be nice to see PSP/PS1 games that people are actually ASKING for instead of these obscure titles. I’d rather have nothing than these no name games honestly. Ever see the top downloads on the PS store? Notice how they are all high ranked and popular titles? More of those please.

  • Is anybody else strangely enjoying the tester?

  • when will the online stats for high velocity bowling get up to date? last update was 3-11-2010 at 6;11 pm.

  • The Lord of the Rings: Conquest Content Pack 2 is still for sale for $9.99 – that should probably be removed, as EA took down the online servers a few days ago, and the DLC is only for online…

  • aweful!! , where are the good ps1 classics, not the ones no ones ever heard of (Suikoden 2, Xenogears, Breath of Fire 3 & 4)

  • gex 2 please

  • D34DL1N3R, did you get it at the store you’ve pre-ordered at? They should have given it to you. Might have been a good idea to ask them yourself.

  • So STILL no Blazblue or Metal Slug XX.

    What happened to “all future games will be released on both PSN and UMD?”

    Not nearly good enough.

  • I think I’ll grab 1942 tonight. Solid update

  • Jigsaw Madness is a PSone Classic? Good God people! Are you doing this on purpose, is this a sick joke to you? Do you sit at your desks and try to find the worst, lamest, bargain bin games to release as “classics”? It’s like a banquet of insanity!

    Oh and once again, PSP Go owners have been left to twist in the wind.

  • Ah man..

  • sometimes the folks at sony cunfuse me…gow3 avatars/theme would have been logical for the week of release but no…so can we have some soon plz :)

  • If you keep thinking logically you will never understand Sony and it’s master plan. Take your crazy pills and put on the tin foil hat and all will be clear.

  • Second week with no Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake? The whole world got it LAST week, except for us! Can we at least get a release date or a comment or something? We want to be able to play with our European friends!

  • I hate complaining but damn wtf is that now i’m not saying the update suck but what i mean is where r the good classic games they r so many good PS1 games you could put , where r the good DLC, where r the good mini ? seriously why almost each week we get nothing good while other country get good things ? i know i probably lose my time writing this because sony just read the first 10 comment of so and they are to lazy to read further but who know miracle can happen sometime lol.

  • Thanks Grace.

    This is the fourth week in a row that you have posted something that I wanted. Keep up the good work.

    But, could you please, please, please look into price drops for Persona and Dissidia?

    And, could you ask Rockstar to fix the Grand Theft Auto games?

  • “Jigsaw Madness”? Really? Who plays this crap?

    When are we going to get QUALITY PSone classics? Classics like Einhander or Legend of Dragoon? Hell, Japan already has Einhander, just PLEASE give it to North America!

  • Grace,

    Will the Breath of Fire series ever make an appearance in the PSN store?

  • The worst update

  • Still no Metal Slug XX for PSPGo. Why are 3rd party games not launching on the PSN? This sucks.

  • the us blog needs Mike Kebby, Grace Chen aims really low on the replies count. No joke, this HAS to change.

  • we have to admit that an effort had been made about the number of downloading things for psp, but nothing for the quality! no metal slug and blazblue, no psone real classics like crash team racing or rival schools or fatal fury wild ambition (yes there are few guys who like this game) or bloody roar 2 or Guilty Gear, or Klonoa, not even a Mortal Kombat Trilogy!!!
    if this goes on, i’d change my psp go for a nintendo ds or a gp2x! Man, what a shame…

  • Wow…I can’t believe how many people here are not familiar with the PS One game, One(PS1). Its a hard game, yeah, but it is very much worth the 5 or so dollars it is selling for now on PSN.

    sigh…this is why I hate reviewers sometimes. You have your Metal Gear Solid, and you Crash Bandicoot(great games, btw) but no love for underrated titles like One which get hit hard by critics, so gamers never play them. Its sad really, and who knows how many other games shared this fate on PS One.

    But heck, what do I know. I’m just a gamer who has played, and dare I say it, enjoyed one of the best games no one has ever played that did not contain a Bandicoot, or Fooxhound member in sight…sigh -_-

  • I guess this is nice. I was wondering if Blazblue is going on the Playstation Store for PSP, and if so, does anybody know when it releases? I really love fighting games and would like to try it out, but I was just curious, so if anyone knows, please reply.

  • could we get some legend of legaia for the ps1 as a psn game

  • why doesnt playstation store put the game of parasite eve 1 and 2 for the ps one so i can buy it i want to play it its a good game

  • would like too see more demos on the psn really help when trying to deside on what game your going to buy like to see a new add on for tom clancy’s rainbow six vegas 2 and mybe some insight
    on rainbosix 3

  • Is there any chance of Jade Cocoon (PS1) getting released for psn? I know the Japanese store got it in 2008, but I am really hoping for it to come to the states! So what do you say, is it highly unlikely or is it likely of showing up eventually?

  • Why is the god of war downloadable costume not sending a email when I entered it in to the god of war web site?

  • where’s my castle crashers!? >.<

  • OK time out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why has Final Fantasy VII crisis core not come out yet!! OMG what is wrong with sony, my psp go needs lover, WERE IS THE LOVE!?!?!?!?!

  • test test.

  • Please release Blazblue Portable this week,also a big price drop for the following, Persona,Dissidia and how about Tomba! or Suikoden 2 on PSone.

  • why cant i download the demo dragonball raging blast? theres only add-ons but not the actual playable demo. what gives man?
