  • Nice update but…
    This will probably go unanswered but when will TRUE PsOne Classics
    are going to be released?
    Sure we got a lot of them and many are sure to come, but instead of releasing game that don’t stand the test of time like Soviet Strike why don’t you release games that have large following like most adventure and RPG games?

    I could name some like Arc the Lad, Alundra, Valkyrie Profile, Star Ocean, Ape Escape just to name a few. There’s a really big catalog of awesome game on PsOne and why we don’t always get at least one great classics a month is outstanding.

  • nice update.

  • My mistake, It felt like two weeks we got Plus update.

  • cool thanks for commenting grace its great to see you. and im not being sarcastic im being truthful. thanks again for the update very nice.

  • @ Grace

    Thank you. Sorry if I was a bit snappy.

  • This day… is win on many levels. Grace responding to Toxic’s post for one, because that has been an issue which was raised before. Secondly, the discounts are ridiculously amazing. Like, crazy talk.

    You would call me a “heavy” PSN buyer I think, and no update has impressed me over the past two years like this one. SotN is one, Monkey Island is another, and even Megaman.

    These are titles from 3 separate and heavy hitting developers, and those prices are exclusively here on PSN. Just insane.

  • Hey, how about fixing the serious camera bugs on the first version of worms before releasing another version?

  • it says on ps3 an error has occurred you have been signed out of playstation network :(
    any advice

  • I like these updates and consistently bringing out huge hits like Persona and Metal Gear! Can’t wait for Caldun!!! Very nice

  • Demon’s Souls should be a PSN release, It was by far the most well received little rpg title that could(but barely anyone thought would)… what a brilliant game… someone needs to get on this. Wussies need not apply Demon’s Souls is truly for the “hardest of core.”

    -The character customization options and variable methods of combat rival that of most standard mmorpgs (ffxi and ffxiv come to mind)
    -The multiplayer is refreshingly cool, and the only-of-it’s-kind. there is no game that has thought of this exact method of multiplayer.
    -The Graphics and overall theme of the game are outstanding, everything about the game sets the exact theme/mood it means to.

    Anyone who considers themselves remotely hardcore needs to give this game a try if they haven’t.

  • No More Heroes Allowed! – Announcement Trailer
    I think you might wanna change that to “No Heroes Allowed! – Announcement Trailer.” People like me might get way too excited for a PSP installment of No More Heroes only to find out its the third Badman game. Not saying they’re not good games, but that typo got me seriously hyped.

  • Same question when can we expect a Fallout 3 dlc price drop?

  • I’ve been reading this blog for a while now… I’m leaving my very first comment just to say THANK YOU for an AWESOME update! I’m buying everything.

  • WHERE IS SONIC ADVENTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????!

  • Hey Grace,

    I just downloaded Flight Control HD, and it’s very good. Well worth the price of admission.

    One little bug is that on the Asian version, “OK” is mapped to “circle”, but in the game, “Fast forward” is also mapped to “circle”

    So whenever you hit “replay” with the circle, the game loads up in “fast forward” mode.

    Where should I report this minor bug? The devs really just need to map “ok” to “any key” instead of “circle”

  • Is Monkey Island going to be made available in other regions, like Hong Kong (where I am)?

    I’m playing a pirated PC version of it right now, although I did buy the original Amiga version 10+ years ago, and I’d really like you guys to make an honest man out of me.

    I’d like to pay for Monkey Island… will you let me?

    I hope you let me purchase Worms 2 as well… as, again, I’m playing a great torrent of Worms and Worms 3D on the PC.

    Finally… GTA Chinatown Wars HD, 1080p PS3 PSN download with improved lighting and effects, custom soundtracks, and online multiplayer… I would really pay for that :D Who agrees?

    The original didn’t do well because of all the piracy on handheld consoles. So many people have played that game, and so few have paid for it. This would be an instant classic on PS3 as a PSN download

  • I went to a Move expo in NYC and the game that blew me away was Kung FU Live… This will be the next Fat princess for Psn.. Sony PLEASE buy Virtural Air Guitar company and lock up the tecnology before the Kinect Goonies get a hand on it! I repeat Buy This tec asap and market against Kinect… as a Plus suscriber and a stock holder I fear how the Kinect would use this tec to crush the move!

  • EXCELLENT update i think guys :)

  • The next time that 50 bucks comes my way, im buying UFC 2010 Undisputed for PSPgo and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. Thats some good gaming.

  • Lot’s of stuff this time around. Unfortunatly not a single thing I want to buy.

    Turn-based RPGs will get you my money.

    Just saying.

  • Anyone having problems with FIFA11 Demo?


  • I can’t find the Fifa 11 demo on PS.Store. Do I need Playstation Plus or do I need to wait a few hours as I’m in Europe?

  • No Free Games for PSN PLus?

  • When’s Sonic Adventure coming out?

  • …so Sony, are we EVER going to get Vagrant Story here in NA??…:(

  • I already have it as a pre-order bonus, but where is ModNation Racers’ DLC Gopher and Kart?

  • @BigDaddyLurch
    maybe next years… :S
    on that time, you could buy yourself Castlevania Symphony of the Night!

    Vagrant Story is in my TOP 5 best PSone game ever!

  • my top 10 PSone games. XD

    Final Fantasy 8

  • @Kwazzimoto ~ I bought Suikoden the day it went on sale, I believe that was September 9. If the game was taken off the on sale section yesterday, then it would have only been there for about 5 days. That hardly seems fair, since most items that go on sale are up for 7 days just about anywhere you may go. @ Grace Chen ~ People like to buy the games on PSN, Especially when a sale comes up…but they should be up more than 5 days. Also, could you list the amount of days the games will be on sale so we know how long we have? Thank you ~,o

  • so .. no word on the missing modnation DLC?

  • Nice update on PSStore. It´s needed to have more updates like this. But I have some comments to do.

    1 – Sonic Adventure, will be released on September 21 ?
    2 – It was supposed to have a DLC for Modnation on this update but it´s missing.
    3 – Love the discounts on Castlevania SoTN, bought it without think twice.
    4 – Why not to have more than one PSOne classics each week?

  • “Plus will be updated next Tuesday. It’s usually updated every other week.”

    Um… well it wasn’t updated last week or if it was it was so terrible it was instantly forgettable. Plus is such garbage. So glad I dropped 50.00 for a service I already had for free. Nothing I have got out of plus I have actually enjoyed with the exception of some free themes. All the games suck.

  • very good update. now if only i had some money…

  • Already own all the Castlevania.

    I’m waiting for Legacy of Kain.

  • Sweet, phantasy star portable 2, a bit pricey though.

  • Where’s Kingdom Hearts for PSP. It isn’t out on the PSN and Sony has yet to release a statement explaining why. I really don’t expect an answer though because that would be Grace doing her job and we all know she isn’t very big on work.

  • I want sonic SONIC & what is this I hear about DREAMCAST games coming to the psn that would be 100 times better then playin ps2 games on my ps3

  • Wow! I was going to pick up Suikoden today but you cut off the sale already. So glad you referred to Suikoden as an early update so that I thought that it was part of this weeks update. I don’t expect an answer or a fix because we all know that the great and all powerful SONY doesn’t have to worry about the wants or desires of us little people.

  • Mega Man 9 isn’t for psp? It’s an 8 bit game for Gawds sake!

  • Instead of old PS3 games for PS+, how about Demon Souls for PS+ as a trial and full game? Also, how about Mega Man 8, 9, and 10 for psp? (loved the Protoman and Bass avatars).

  • @sick111one: The update was last week and included Warhawk (trial, free booster pack, free dynamic theme), free UFC add-on, early GOW PSP demo, Blast-Off mini, fractals theme, 50% off R&C dynamic theme, and Qore September.

  • Rock Band with DIO at last!!

  • where are the NFL Themes.

  • $20 for 3 months of PS+, worst money I’ve ever spent… though it could have been worse. I could have paid for a full year of not getting anything but garbage.

  • Eh another week another bad update for psp. about the only good game on the psp list is Phantasy Star 2, but whats the point in playing the second game when i never played the first (since its not on the psn and i am a Go user)

    Hopefully soon we start getting good game, but i doubt it will be any time soon, and since you guys never response to actual request i wont even bother listing game we would like on our psp as you guys dont care what we want.

  • I still dont understand why you guys made it a requirement for Move with such games like EyePet. It was a game i was considering since it seems fun, but now since i am required to pay almost 100$+ just to play this little game doesnt seem worth it. Why do all the other countries who have this game play it normally (just the normal ps3 controller and camera) that was understandable and reasonable (and affordable since as a bundle i saw it was like 60$) now as an optional attachment it would have been fine i wouldnt have to waste so much money for an accessory for one game, but this is ridiculous.

    There was no reason for it to “require” Move it plays well without so why force something like this? I know this is probably the wrong person to talk to but help me understand WHY it was made like this. Now if Move was affordable (in my eye that bundle should be worth 50$ not 100$+)

  • So when are we going to get Castlevania and or 2D classics. I’m tired of seeing horrible 3D crap on the PSN (ie GoW and UC2). Oh well Nintendo is still kicking your butt Sony.

  • ok update, might have to get the Monkey Island one now

  • 200! Can someone explain me why we got a 5$ discount on Mega Man 9 while the European Store got the same discount on Mega Man 10? Is it because they think no one will notice it and give us discounted old game while others are getting a discount on a more recent game?
