  • I can’t say it’s a bad update, some really nice games and DLC this week…

    but why can’t we have real PSone classics??? “XS Moto” is not a classic, it’s an old, bargain bin game and nothing more…

    also, what’s so difficult about creating new avatar?

    but, as I said, it’s not a bad update… at least it’s way better than last week…

  • New leadership at Sony.

  • @51

    at least you have ps1 classic’s, europes psn is full of disney games.


  • Where is the long OVERDUE Demon’s Souls Dynamic Theme?

  • MLB TV? Come on Sony, how about giving us some apps that we can use without forking over an arm and a leg for a pointless service. If I wanted to watch ballgames on my TV I would turn on my satellite.

  • Good update. A demo, eight videos, and two themes for me. Not bad at all.

    I’d grab the U2 DLC but I’m holding out for a bundle.

  • I’m not satisfied till lego indy 2 comes out! :\

  • why is the p.s store open so late in the day im living in the east coast and the store opens at 7p.m …. why? why? why?


  • Great update! Thank you so much for the Lakers Theme! Go Lakers Go! Now we need a Lakers avatar, and we are set! Bring NFl theme and avatar once NFL season starts! Things I also bought are Uncharted 2 pack, and 2 miniS games: Hysteria Project, and Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess!

  • Red Dead Redemption is near

  • Another crappy update…

  • just great,no ultimate ninja heroes 3 demo :\ guess its playing the japanese demo and wait to buy the umd because i dont have any faith on sony bringing the game to the psn :\

  • Not a bad update, just mising some Dynamic Themes, Avatars and some more real PS1 games.


    I would really like to see some kind of 3D Dot Game Heros Dynamic Theme and some Avatars. :)

  • It’s been awhile since I bought/downloaded anything from the PS store. I’ll be getting the Uncharted DLC and downloading the Lost Planet 2 demo.

    It would be great if we could have a steady stream of avatars available. Is there a reason you don’t want to make money on Uncharted 2 or God of War III avatars? I mean they are two of you’re biggest titles?!

  • Rock Band Network! Yeaaaaa… WHAT? Only five songs, on a service that had 100 songs at launch. I’m in a crisis, I need help! Come on mood shift, shift back to good again! Come on mood shift, shift back to good again!

  • Let the rants about no install OS start in 3, 2, 1………. Ooops! TOO LATE!

  • No Lead & Gold : -(

  • Well, I won’t complain again about Metal Slug XX being absent :/ I already got it for my DS.

    I might get After Burner, but knowing it’s a Sega game, I won’t do it until I play a demo.

  • Looks like I’m only missing out on some PSP games this week since I refuse to even purchase games for either PSP until my Other OS is re-enabled in FW 3.30+. So long sony, I’m off to play some of my brand new 360 games.

  • @53
    We have some classics yes, the rest is the stuff that if you owned the physical disk, you would use it as a coaster for your drink while you played something good.

    And as lame as it is, most of the Disney crap that is spewing out on the Euro store…sold better than the crap we have been getting released lately.

    I think a region consolidation is needed.
    A true…Playstation Store…not Playstation Regional Store.

  • Why on earth is the PS3 version of Puzzle Chronicles $9.99 while the PSP version is 30 Bucks?

  • Thanks for this awesome update, getting Uncharted 2 DLC and Hysteria Project mini. A little bit sad that MLB app is US and Canada only but i hope you can create a similar app for FIFA World Cup maybe ( After all PlayStation and Sony are official sponsors ) which is not region locked.

  • Hi Grace,

    Is this the last installment of the Spring Fever sale? Will there be more sales next week? Thanks again for having loads of sales!

    I’d just like to put my vote in again for demos of FFXIII, PixelJunk Shooter, and Hammsterball.

    I’m also looking forward to PSN update moving to Tuesdays!

    Have a great weekend!

  • Best update I’ve seen in a while. Good job, PS team. Uncharted maps, here I come.


  • “Looks like I’m only missing out on some PSP games this week since I refuse to even purchase games for either PSP until my Other OS is re-enabled in FW 3.30+. So long sony, I’m off to play some of my brand new 360 games.”

    Enjoy your 360 games, pal :) And do say goodbye to your PS3 and PSP (sell them or something), because what you’re wasking for is never going to happen. The sad thing is you already know.

  • wow another ps1 classic no ones heard of , go figure lol

  • Double thanks Grace for get thank you last week. Any Ro Can you please make specail store updated next week It’s my Birthday next Thursday :).

  • Some good stuff, but how many craptastic xs ps1 games are there? Please give us the classic ps1 games we want. Where is crisis core and the other squaresoft games mysteriously absent from our psp store (at this rate they will be on itunes before media go). Also where is blood bowl and the other recently released umd games, like metal slug, shadow of destiny, tag force 4 ect. Please update your prices to least be competitive to their umd counterparts (so we will actually buy them).

  • Does anyone know when PS is going to release the COD MW2 Map Pack add-ons?


  • Nothing good this week and I’m still waiting for more PS one games.

  • thanks 4 the early update

  • no sarcasm

  • Lame update. I wish I missed the PSN, but I guess I really don’t. I wonder if the new TOS will allow them to ban me for saying that.

    I do not agree to the new TOS

  • Only thing I got was a RBN song. I am glad they finally got some on the PS3. Only 5 because that’s all they can put at the moment, but meh. At least we get them now along with regular DLC.
    Glad to hear from some comments that updates will happen on Tuesdays soon. I won’t have to wait the two days when the 360 Rock Band songs are released. Anyone know when this will start?

  • HebertFortoon, you better call customer service and have them disable all of your accounts. That is what they want you do do if you think their TOS are crap. Granted my PS3 can’t get online anyways so who cares what their TOS are.

  • Every week, people ask questions and comment on the blog, and are answered with silence. This trend is disappointing. Of course you should ignore the pointless complaints, like other OS whiners, but some people post relevant questions that many others would like to know the answer to as well, and it seems they might as well be talking to themselves. To whoever runs PSN and the blog, why are we seeing no responses? A robot could come up with more feedback, and probably earn better marks for customer relations, too. If you don’t care about communicating PlayStation’s concerns and those of its customers, why should we customers even bother? And then, what’s to stop us from not supporting PlayStation in return?

  • Great update. Just picked up After Burner Climax, The Secret of Monkey Island, and Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty (been waiting for that one’s price to drop again :D).

    Very happy.

    P.S. Would be happier if we got some more non-shovelware PSOne classics, thanks.

  • Another lackluster update.

  • Good update thanks to uncharted 2!! Can we please get a price drop on Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines or God of War Chains of Olympus???

  • Great update! too bad my ps3 is no longer with us ;( stupid YLOD and no money for a new one.

  • Hey, tell Naughty Dog we want some Uncharted 2 Avatars!

  • this weeks update is pretty good, definitely getting the Uncharted 2 pack and the LP2 demo.

  • When will the Aliens vs. Predator demo be available again for download at Sony Store?

  • Why do people still bother saying hi to Grace?

    I think she stopped talking to people months and months ago, she’s probably hiding in basement with the US Singstar team.

    Sony could replace her with someone who doesn’t have thin skin when it comes to complaining fans, but they seem to be too busy figuring out ways to get people to pay for demos and making PSPGo buyers mad for not being able to buy games that only come out in UMD form.

  • With the move to PSN Tuesday updates, I hope PSN and the blog better respond to customer demand and enthusiasm. So far, people have been demanding avatars, and have become increasingly frustrated at both the absence of product and lack of response. The same goes for recent PS1 Classics conversation. With the recent increase in low-demand PS1 games(reminiscent of the Spec Ops binge from a while ago), people are worried and annoyed that their words fall on deaf ears.
    May 4ths update should be especially important. Personally, it’s going to be a deciding point for myself whether or not to care anymore about PSN, since it’s right after my birthday. If I don’t splurge after my birthday, I’m likely never to, so think about it.
    But less personally, I can follow PSN- and the Blog’s behavior and not care. And when myself and other PlayStation customers don’t care anymore, watch out. I don’t see any reason to contribute my money to a store that doesn’t seem to pay attention to its customers. And if I’m still disappointed by May 4th, why don’t I just one-star every update just for the hell of it? Like I said, if you don’t care, why should I?

  • When will the Aliens vs. Predator PS3 demo be available again for download at Sony Store?
