  • when is tomba! and tomba!2 going to be added to the PS1 downloads for the psp

  • What!? Dezaemon!? it’s a Shoot’em up virtical scrolling construction kit, If you like shooters it’s worth having seriously. And we still have the ability to trade creations? I’m hoping on that for real.

  • Thanks PSN staff, to you, and Monkey Paw Games for making Dezaemon Plus available to NA! Though I wish it could be completely translated. I just might take a whack at this PS import.

  • Rival Schools avatars?? Cool!!!

  • Got the DJ HERO 2 TIESTO DLC for FREE last week from Coke. Saved myself a bit of $ there. WHEW!

  • @Megamixer

    I hope at this point you have turned your posting into a script. The idea that you sit around waiting for the drop every week to give us the run down (which I don’t think anyone wants) is quite sad.

    On another note, it seems state taxes are creeping into PSN downloads. Could the PSN team give us a breakdown of which states are affected by these taxes?

  • @DonCalzone21
    Hey as I said I just got a PSP Go which means 3 free games for me! :D

    You people are the negative ones. I’ve posted many positive things about stores updates, even when they’ve had nothing I personally am interested in!

    On the up and up, while it isn’t something you download from the PS Store, PAIN has been updated to include a new *free* level! That is way cool. Anyone who has that game be sure to download the update and check it out! :)

  • Really interested on these “Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Theme (free)”

  • Grace/Ro:

    Any update on the Demon’s Souls Dynamic Theme? You both have replied before that you will check on it and I’m curious if there is any news.



    *Downloading Dead Nation as I type… :)

  • Nice update!! I am downloading deadnation add me for some co op!!!
    Level 12 trophy list

  • rival schools avatars?! Is that a hint of things to come, such as Rival Schools on PSN as a PSone classic?

  • Like previous posters mentioned, WHY ARE WE BEING CHARGED TAX ALL OF A SUDDEN?

  • Dead Nation doesn’t have VOICE CHAT!!!!!!

  • Thanks as always, Sony! Looking forward to Dead Nation and a demo. :)

  • last week update was amazing ….this one is ….meh

  • An early update….wow.
    Shame I might have noticed this if I had not been playing GT5. Kinda lame on the plus users front though, which for once I also dont mind as I do not have any hard drive space left – due to Gt5…

  • Tax is something you need to look up online, many states now impose a digital sales tax that Sony is forced to recover. NY is one of the few, search online for your state about these changes.

  • Also waiting for Demon’s Souls Dynamic Theme……:)

  • meh, other than ‘Dead Nation’ this one’s a wash.

  • Somebody has to explain to me why a 15-year anniversary of Sony theme costs $2.99…

  • Stupid PSOne Imports. Lets focus on the U.S. of A. Pathetic update is pathetic. Its early as there isn’t much to it.

  • Nice early update.

    Can we PLEASE gain the ability to change the font colors on the XMB. At least be able to change from white to black. White Themes, like this 15th anniversary one, are nice but I would like to be able to read the text also.

    Zombie killin’ time!

  • Hello Sony,
    Here is a list of PSOne game that I want to play legally:

    Vagrant Story
    Tomba 1 and 2
    Front Mission 3
    Suikoden 2
    Medievil 2

    Thank you for bringing thoses games soon (I know that some of them are already released in Japan and Europe).


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

  • a question for grace chen or for my fellow gamers. does the psn accepts codes from thanks

  • This update is pretty weak, but the PS+ update is a joke. PS+ is a waste of money, almost wish I would have bought Naughty Bear instead.

  • #55: Don’t forget to put Fallout: New Vegas on there

  • im so glad I got Peace Walker last night, also YEAH WHEN ARE WE GETTING TOMBA 1 and 2 FOR PSP, its the perfect game for a psp

  • When are we getting Vagrant Story?

  • Another megaman legends avatar but no megaman legends…

  • lol. Megamixer needs a life so bad. xD

  • nice early update!

    and great content too, you guys sure work hard on this thx!

    aligato? lol

  • Thanks 4 the update Grace. Is it possible that you guys can work on some Kevin Butler Avatars? I think that would be awesome.


  • What a crappy update. You really are letting the PSP die. Better not mess that u with PSP2 ! Regardless thank you so much for an early update :)

  • Wow, I’m I reading that right? Uno for a $1?
    Instant buy! :D

    Will Amazon price match this? I have a lot of credit left over from Black Friday, So How long can expect Dead Nation to be up on Amazon. Much Appreciated.

  • Megamixer is like our Playstation version of Comicbook Guy from the Simpsons >.<

  • good job with the updates!! Very fast updating…and what can i say DEAD NATION here i come!! *PROUD PS+ MEMBER*

  • PLEASE SONY!!! Just put Vagrant Story in the US store! i would love to play that game again!!

    please people, lets make it happen! say YES to Vagrant story!

  • I wish you added at least 1 DMC avatar to PSPlus :(

  • Definitely getting UNO on PS3. I really wish that you would have discounted UNO for PSP also. I would have double dipped!

  • I need HELP.Im trying to add funds with a psn card , after i put in the code it tells me the amount of the card but i get an error when trying to add funds to my wallet.

  • I agree with chilidawg1477 dbz tag team should be for PSN and quick question, will Tron Evolution be released for PSN?

  • and once again psp owners get shafted

  • So sad going miss 2-3 months of psn plus :( My 40 gig ps3 console died last Sat I have have no new money get new slim to after holidays and bills pay off first.

  • Why are games still freezing when we have a 100 friends on our lists? This was a problem when the friends list was bumped up. Why is this still a problem?

  • Dead Nation doesn’t have VOICE CHAT ????

  • To who it may concern…

    I am a playstation plus member and I found a mini that I liked by trying the free ones provided. I liked it so much I wanted to buy it so it wouldnt disappear when/if I didnt renew my subscription. So I have been waiting and it finally went on sale. However when I go to buy it, playstation network says I already have downloaded that item and then it wont let me. It makes me redownload the one that was given via PS+. Any help on this issue would be appreciated. I just want to give you guys money.

  • We gonna be seeing Mega Man Legends 2 and Rival Schools as PSone Classics in the store soon?
