  • Thanks Grace, I am looking forward to trying out Afterburner as well as the Lost Planet 2 MP Demo! :D

  • woo. more psp eye game expansions.

  • Time to play that new Uncharted 2 DLC

    Looks sweet

  • I like the Uncharted expansions, keep them coming

  • Wooo, I missed out on Quest for Booty the last time and I’ve been waitin to play it before I play Crack in Time. Just having that on sale makes this a 5 star update, thanks!

  • This is weak :( The only good thing about this update is the Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess…that’s it!

  • oh wow im first. well…good update. i might pick up a few minis and revenge of the wounded dragons. love all the sale stuff. too bad i already have ratchet and clank. great job guys awesome update and keep up the good work.

  • We need more psp games please.

  • So, I assume the earlier store times you promised are coming with the new update day and you guys decided not to bother improving upload times till then?



    Been looking forward to this for ages.

    Sweet update guys, keep up the good work.

  • no avatars? WTF


  • I got Ratchet and Clank on sale last year! I will likely be picking up the Uncharted pack, and the Monkey Island Special Edition. Modnation themes too, cool. I’m surprised I never heard of that Tecmo Bowl game yet either.

  • Uhh…PSPlease?

  • Meh. Nothing of interest this week.

  • I would love to see Metal gear acid 1 & 2 on the PS Store. I wonder why its not up there but every other Metal gear game is. I just bought a PSP GO and I’m loving it im trying to catch up on the games I never bought for my regular psp. I hope you guys announce some good psp stuff at E3

  • Ubisoft sale doesn’t look all that great… EU always has better game sales every week :(

    Afterburner! Count me in on that for sure.

  • WTF…NO UFC 2010 DEMO?????

  • @plankfan man you are hard to please lol

  • Decent update, still waiting on some better PSone classics, and PSP game price drops. Where are the avatars for God of War?

  • @9, this update is an hour earlier than when the store was usually updating.

  • Man, that is the best update I have seen in some time. So much to play with!

  • Huzzah — Monkey Island is on PSN.

    This, along with all the Red Dead Redemption videos shall be mine this evening.


  • Lost Planet MP demo
    After Burner Climax
    and Uncharted 2 maps
    good update

  • Still waiting on some new avatars…

  • Thanks Grace! You looked ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL ON Video when you explained how that works with MLB.TV Application for Playstation 3… Will you please marry me? *Get down on one knee, proposing a ring*? if no, then that is awesome.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Thx for the great update. On another note, Lost Planet 2 has to be one of the worst games I’ve played in years. I know it’s a demo, but it’s terrible.

    I’m off to get the Uncharted DLC, now that is quality

  • PSP Go drought… When will it end?

  • wow, nothing for me in this update. i already got early access to lost planet demo.

    i vote 1 out of 5

  • going to be playing after burner. Thanks for the update

  • – Puzzle Chronicles = bought
    – Hysteria Project = bought
    – MLB.TV… need a free trial, please. Won’t gamble $100+, especially after the $19.99 Premium sale we missed by just over a month.

    May go back for more games later. Lots of good stuff this week. Simply excellent update! But that Shatter theme I thought was gonna be here this week? Oh well.

  • I’d really like to know who – if anyone – is buying these PsOne…..classics. If you can call them that, I’ve never heard of them, no one I know has ever heard of them, does anyone really buy these XS sports games? What would be the problem with releasing games that people actually want?

  • Sweet MLB.TV app. Would like to see more like it, perhaps NHL and NFL? Live in Canada, on SuperBowl day would love to see some of their ads.

  • Why no Lead & Gold this week? EU got it and even the developer said it would be this week.

  • Another garbage update for pspgo owners… Another proof apparently that playstation loves to nickel and dime their hardcore owners/adopters of this system. It’s going back tomorrow, I held on long enough and have now lost faith.

  • NBA league pass app plz

  • awesome update wasn’t expecting Monkey Island today, might get the Uncharted 2 DLC today.

  • really another crap-tastic psp update, and really nothing of interest on the ps3 side besides the modnation themes.

  • wow, The Secret of Monkey Island, I could never play the original version, downloading it!!

  • man… you guys need to support the psp platform alot better then this every week.

    At least update all the psp game prices to match the current market prices especially for the psp go users and for the love of god give us final fantasy 9 already not some craptastic playstation game no one has ever heard.

  • Ok this may not be the place for this but I couldn’t find a forum or anything for it so here goes. I just read the updated TOS agreement and under video there’s nowhere that says you can still use netflix on ps3? Did I read it wrong or what? I’m confused on this matter if someone could explain it I would be eternally appreciative. Thank you PS Blog members for takin the time to read this.

  • Sweet! I thought I was gonna have to shell out three bucks at the toy store to play Uno! But here it is without all the primitive cardboard for only eight!

  • Cant you guys help sony europe with the psn store :(

    They can never do good updates (monkey island *sigh* )

  • @28

    A drought implies that there was once abundance.

  • Wow so many games, nice

  • Any word of when Final Fantasy 9 is coming State-side?

  • Great update this week. Unfortunately even though I just bought a $20 PSN card to buy stuff today, my main account, Darth-Krayt, was just minutes ago, suddenly banned from the PlayStation Network for no reason at all. Figures it gets banned AFTER I put the $20 in my wallet too, so now I can’t buy Monsters and Monopoly for my PSP Go and Monkey Island like I planned.

    What a waste. I hope my main account ban isn’t permanent.

  • NICE update with no complains. Finally a real update . Hysteria Project 1.99 & Monster stole my princess 4.99 ? and you guys fix ps home ? GOOD JOB GUYS . A VERY GOOD JOB .

  • After Burner Climax and The Secret of Monkey Island? Awesome. Simply awesome. Fantastic update this week.

  • Dear Grace: We want to see DC Universe Online videos and themes in the Playstation Store, please.

Please enter your date of birth.
