  • What the?
    Widgets Odyssey 2? A Minis title gets a sequel? Pretty rad.

    Except that, I bought the first one, and after the last level…nothing happened. It didn’t register my score, and there’s no end-game cutscene. The game was broken, and I don’t think I’ll pick up the sequel.

  • Speaking of games I’d re-buy, put Half Minute Hero on sale for $10 and I’ll buy the heck out of it despite having it on UMD. Pretty please? :o

  • I’m sorry, but the Makoto DLC for 7.99… OVERPRICED!!! I don’t see why “fanservice” with a sexy she-squirrel should cost 8 bucks if she’s not even have any integration with her own story path in the story mode. I was expecting to this to come out and then buy the game but the 7.99 just turn me off.

    Better wait for next week BigHugeMegaHit Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Video Game, it’s worth 10 bucks. And by the way, tell those lazy testers to certified Castle Crashers already!!!! (why bother make a reality show!?)

  • How about some Road Rash 1,2& some Need for speeds would be nice.

  • There there going to be a demo for GT5 releasing soon on PSN?

    Please make sure there is no 5GB install for GT5 like in GT5P!! PLZ

  • Awesome, Street Fighter Alpha 3 avatars! That reminds me, I’m going to pick up SFA3 as a ps1 classic.

    Oh wait.

  • This update was too early… please push it back later in the day next week…


  • It’s my birthday and my favorite superhero Rogue makes her debut as LBP DLC! Thanks for the gift guys! :-D

  • I was really looking forward to getting some new games and themes today. This is not the best update, especially being a Playstation plus member. I am looking forward to playing Earth Worm Jim though. PS+ members are getting some new free games and themes next week right?

  • Besides Lunar price drop, no PSP love this week (or the last week, or the last…). PS1 Classics are nowhere to be found, either. Oh well… at least I’ve got DQ9.

  • Brilliant update! But enough with the Street Fighter avatars. Where are the inFAMOUS, God of War, Gran Turismo, Twisted Metal, Metal Gear Solid, Killzone avatars? I wants me some variety!

  • nice update! but when is castle crashers coming?

  • Please go take Square-Enix out to lunch so we can finally get Vagrant Story in the US store.

    Then, if you could, stop by the ice cream shop afterwards so they will bring Legend of Mana, Xenogears, and Threads of Fate here too.

    Thank you.

  • Its a sign, Alpha 3 is coming to PSN!

  • The thing i look for every week is the PSone classics. There have been some pretty wicked ones in the past with suikoden, and the FF’s. I’d love to see some other ones that have been asked for alot on here though like xenogears, vagrant story, breath of fire 3 and Parasite eve 1 and 2. hopefully we can get some of these rolling out sometime soon!

  • I’m starting to think Castle Crashers didn’t make it through the PSN review process.

  • Nice summer sale update, unfortunately i already have Lunar, GTA:CTW, and patchwork but will get a few minis. Will you guys have new sales every week for the rest of summer or here and there?

  • Looks like a better setup than last week. Hope things keep improving. Good work!

  • i was going to pick up tetris, but i hear that it doesn’t play on the ps3.

  • So Section 8 goes back on sale at a higher price? You’re doing it wrong!

  • REally weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaakkkkkkkkkkkkkkk update..

    Guess thats more common though, so i should expect nothing but [DELETED] from you guys.

    Get some more avatars. We alreadyhave like 50 street fighter ones.. WE need other games too. Cmon this is free [DELETED] money here no one should even have to tell you to get this.


  • Nothing of Intrest for me this week. Was hoping for Castle Crashers.

    *Proud PSN+ Member*

  • BB DLC finally, been waiting for Makoto all day.

  • I just checked the US store and I see that it has different Playstation Plus deals to the UK store, is that just until the UK store updates or am I going to miss out on those?

  • @BusaoN1 Road Rash was a killer game. I would love to see that on the store.

  • Thanks for the demo games, not sure what i’ll get. i was hoping for PS+ update today :(

  • Nothing for PSN+ today?

  • TYPO, It’s Guerrilla not, Guerilla…

  • Aint red faction in the in ps store as a demo? I played it months ago when it first released, and yeah it sucked. I think sony should have thought longer about the content in ps+. I glad im not a member every tuesday. Hopefully it will get better on ps4.

  • I see the lbp psp team was watching a robin hood men in tights recently when they thought of that dlc. A funny Mel Brooks movie.

  • Wish the Plus update wasn’t every other week now….

  • There is no PS+ update this week. They are telling us this week what will debut on 8/10.


    You have to wait until 8/10 for Qore.

  • Castle Crashers ???? When ????
    Hurry Sony please !!!!

  • Good update and great time! Would still prefer PSN+ updates every week instead of every 2 weeks. Ah well. :)

  • lmfao modern warfare 2 demo almost 10 months after its release.

    hope earthworm jim is worth the MOOOOOOOOO-LAH

  • For years I’ve been waiting for more true PSOne classics to be released. 2-3 titles a year is pathetic for simple ports that homebrewers can do themselves in half an hour per game, for free.

    It seems the most consistent part of the Playstation store is the disappointment.

  • oh my gosh grace, please answer Sonicfan11589’s (number 3 on the list) question, especially since i’m seriously considering making a european psn account just to buy crash team racing. i’ve heard on numerous sites that guys were bringing motortoon racing and crash team racing this summer, i see motortoon but no ctr. so if u please, what are the chances of this happening soon

  • I’ll definitely be grabbing the Trine DLC! :D
    Great game, can’t wait for the 2nd one!

  • Like half or more of all the stuff listed is not showing up in the store for me. Even the Aug Qore is not in my DL list.

  • Sony, make a deal with Activision to distribute SpiderMan one the psone classic.
    make a Venture Brother game for psn it would be hilarious

  • everyone keeps complaining about playstation plus so much yet i waited and i am going to get it 2mrw. (see sony i told u i would) look at the setup for playstation plus… 4 games that can play on the psp FOR FREE!!! if ur smart u’ll get it before tuesday and DL the free games for psp: syphon filter (ps1), critter crunch, kahoots, and field runners. i am getting it tomorrow and DL’ing all these free minis then next weeks update will add another free game so i will get 5 free games in 2 weeks along with all the themes i’m gonna DL lets add this up
    4 minis – average of $20
    1 full ps1 – average $5
    2 themes from psn – $5
    total price – about $30

    with playstation plus
    total price – $50 for all 5 and the theme

    now look at that, doesn’t look balanced? think about this = this is in 1 week… what about the rest of the 15 months i’ll have left? be a smart consumer…

  • > You can use the PS.Blog Share.


    What good is “GAP” if “GAP” gets NOTHING done (okay, we got Biohazard/Resident Evil 1-3 on the store, but that was ages ago).

    Or you can listen to the people in the BLOG that complain ENDELESSLY for things, because hey: We WANT to give you money. But you (Grace, SCEA, whoever) don’t seem to care.

    At lest Mike Kebby at the SCEE blog will listen to our disappointment, will REPLY to nearly EVERYONE and understands our (er-EU) disappointment and tries to relay the feedback to the regional branch to IMPROVE THEIR SERVICE.

  • Until you put up:

    -Breath of Fire 3 (Sup, Capcom?)
    -Breath of Fire 4 (Sup, Capcom?)

    Freaking GAMES people ASK for each week, these store updates fail.

    And I feel extremely bad for PSP Go owners as they’re shafted AGAIN with ZERO (0) games released this week.

    Why must SCEA have their heads up their rear-ends and not listen to consumers that want to spend cash on their store?

  • Yawn! Nothing for me again this week.

  • Terrible update and I don’t understand the reason behind moving the PS+ updates to bi-weekly, what’s wrong with weekly PS+ updates?

  • For the people that are desperate for Castle Crashers:

    There’s a answer for this game and it’s called Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. It’s has the same soul of a sidescroller brawler and looks cool. And, will cost 9.99!!!!

    Sony will not yet release Castle Crashers because that would piss Ubisoft and will make SP sales to tank because of the demand of Castle Crashers. Wait for CC until later or 2012. But I will say this Sony…

    Priced this 2 year old game for 15 bucks, and I swear I will make someone at Sony get stab in the eyeball. That will be a bonehead move overprice a 2 year old game.

  • psp update fared a little better……..
