  • Fast forward to October… only good game this week is Halo: Reach

  • sooo im guessing its confirmed that phantasy star protable 2 will be on psn on tuseday nice glad to see sega has started to release more digital games

  • oh and what about the playstation move? apparently its coming out the 17 in Canada :)

  • One more week for Lara Croft?

  • Rey do you have any idea how much Worms 2 Armageddon is going to cost?


  • Is My Aquarium an Eye title like Aquatopia? Does it have trophies? It sounds interesting. Rey any word on Move demos in PSN Store?

  • @Gogo_ZvC
    If its more than $9.99, its not worth it to me. I have the original Armageddon for PC and I got it for 8.99 with 2 other games a few years back.

    I agree, but actually, lets just skip ahead to November. I want some Gran Turismo 5 and God of Wars Ghost of Sparta!!
    (and CODBO, LBP2, AC:BH)

  • @7: Ooh! Can we? Don’t forget the Sly Collection!

  • I got the Playstation Move Sports Champion Bundle on pre-order, along with an extra MOVE remote, a Navigation controller, charger kit, and LBP 2. Here is a question: will the Gun Attatchment work well with MAG, because the fact that I would be using a Pistol-like remote to control an M4A1 is what took me away from purchasing it

    @1 I know right!!!! I actually have an XBOX 360 too so I am thrilled for Reach

  • Spelled a lot of words wrong sorry

  • looking forward to Phantasy star portable 2, u guys should include the price drops that will be (if there are any) for games that are planned on being dropped in price, I think u should also include the memory size for the psn and psOne classics if possible.

  • @7 Well in October there is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, NBA 2K11, Fallout: New Vegas, Medal of Honor, Sonic and Enslaved. and its only a few weeks away :P but yeah I like November too

  • by “september 13th” in the title i hope you mean september 12th, because the week of september 13th hasn’t happened.

  • cant wait to pick up my 320 gig ps3 ps move bundle it will b an early christmas for me this coming week

  • Phantasy Star Portable 2! Hope it’s out on PSN, and hope it’s out for $39.99 or cheaper.

  • where is Flight Control?

  • Isnt Move coming out on Friday of this upcoming week the 17th? why no mention??

  • What about Blacklight Tango Down ?

  • hey rey i have a question….when ps puts out ps1 classics how do they pick which ones to put out? i like a lot of the ones so far….but i have been waiting for parasite eve 1 and 2 (since 3rd birthday is coming to psp) and digimon world 1,2,&3. i would like to see them all but how does sony decide which ones they can put up? just asking. if you dont know its cool no biggie. ^_^

  • Can you guys add if they’re going to be on PSN (talking about PSP)?

    Like “Available in store/PSN”

  • Will check out Space Invaders, heard good things about it.

  • Yay, PSP minis that are old PC games. Why do you think Coconut Dodge and Mediatonic’s games will be more successful?

  • are gonna be a price drop on ps one games???

  • Will UFC 2010 be on PSN for the PSP this Tuesday?

  • All I know is I can’t wait for cladun and psp2. Thank’s so much sony

  • @jayrockslife
    It’s going to be $14.99, found out on I paid $12.99 for the first Worms on PSN, played the hell out of it with my friends so price was justifiable in a sense.
    This one comes with way more features than the first one, but I’m still going to wait until it’s on sale to get. Didn’t really like the price point of the first one with so little to offer game play wise, but once again I had a lot of fun playing it. :)

  • ill check out space invaders. And SOVIET STRIKE is a very worthy addition to PSOne classics. That was one of the most played games in my PSone library. loved it.

    Question- i’ve been expecting three games to hit the PSN since the beginning of the summer.

    – Blacklight: Tango Down

    – Lara Croft and the guardian of Light

    – ALien Breed

    Any word when those will be hitting the PS Store? thanks.

  • Oh man.

    I should have seen it coming.

    They make O RLY: The Movie and then they make a game tie-in.

    Why, lord, why?

  • Enjoy your last Halo game before the Bungie people go multi-platform, such a garbage franchise……….

  • playstation is lacking in good releases. i’m going to back to halo reach.

  • @christuff
    Not a garbage franchise at all, don’t post if it’s not helpful. There is a reason more than 34 million copies of all the games have been sold worldwide.

    Ahaha the O RLY owls nice :P

    Looks like I’m buying another $20 PSN Card this week. My monays!!

  • Honestly about the only good thing from this list is Phantasy Star Portable 2, and even then i wont be buying it till im able to play Phantasy Star Portable 1.

  • @30 lol fanboyism = childish… that franchise is amazing and bungie did a good job. saying that is garbage is basically saying bungie is bad and we would know that someone like yourself cried tears of joy when they went multiplatform

  • @1
    Who wants to play Gaylo: ReachAround? Um…..45 yr old pedaphiles living in parents basement! thats who.

  • @gogodowndownaboyo

    34 million for crap graphics, great multiplayer though. I’m just glad Halo is dead after this, and why would someone post Halo on a playstation comment board????? you seriously want to get destroyed here man.

    P.S. Can’t compare with the 145+ million consoles just for ps2 owned worldwide, 360 will never see these numbers!

  • I cant wait for sep 21, i want my RDR dlc now!

  • Friday is payday. Perfect time to invest in a PlayStation Move.

  • @35 Yeah, that Gaylo: ReachAround is only for losers who want people to think they are gay enough to go out of the closet.

  • Any good demos this week?

  • i want my move

  • Holy crap, Soviet Strike; I loved that game but never finished it. Guess I’ll have to give it another go now

  • Where the hell is Sonic Adventure?

  • lol destroyed? not everyone here is a moron that doesn’t appreciate awesome games… grow up honestly

  • @Kchow23

    We all know you’re a troll from microsh-it.XD

  • Kind of disappointed. :?

    I only have eyes for Castlevania and Vanquish.

  • Yeaaahhh.. um no offense Sony, but with Halo: Reach coming out this week you may just want to lay low for a while. Gosh, I wish Demon’s Souls or Valkyria Chronicles got the kind of crazy sales that Halo is gonna pull down this week… :(

  • @Vcheese yeah because I said that Halo: Reach is a good game… ok there lol…

  • Phantasy Star Portable 2 for me this week =)
