  • ugh idk why everyone is so excited for the dragon age 2 demo. if you liked dragon age origins then wait a couple weeks and you can get dragon age 2 and play it without ruining anything for ya from the demo.

  • epic update!
    thank you sony for the freebies! :0

  • “I was wondering if Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II will ever be downloadable?”

    This. I never got to check them out and would love to. I believe they’re already available in Europe or Japan, USA would love them too.

    @42 – Hard Corps Uprising is a timed exclusive for Xbox, so PS3 will probably be waiting at least 3 more weeks would be my guess.

  • Yakuza 4 demo for me!

  • Good job Sony Corporation. This is a nice batch of content.

  • @47 Exalted_Knight

    I have actually contacted Square Enix and Sony about this issue, and with Square Enix they basically started out saying “there were no plans.” i asked them this roughly about the time the Go was coming out.
    After a couple months a e-mailed them again and they said “they hear no word from Sony as to whether they can get the game on the Psn.”

    Knowing this was when i started e-mailing Sony , and they bascially said to talk to square and then again back at e-mailing Square they said to talk to Sony.

    Im just saying people know who to contact, but we dont really know who to trust. I mean Square has nothing against the Psn as proof from the Ps1 classic, so it must be something on Sony side.

  • I totally snagged the Dragon Age 2 demo, and Xenogears. Really exited to play the latter on my PSP. I am still a little disapointed though, I was expecting Hardcorps Uprising to be up this week, and it’s not. Any word when that’s coming out? I know it was released last week on a system that shall not be named, and I assumed it would be out for us this week? We’re still getting it, right?


    Now I just need Vagrant Story and I’ll be all set! :D

  • Nice update! It’s great to see new and discounted games for the PSP, even if the former are just a remake of a JRPG and some Minis.

    Also, @marlyt:

    You have a problem with them providing French language content to Canada…where French is an official language? And the internet was your “last bastion” of close-minded, mono-linguistic, ethnocentric isolation? Really? The internet?

    It’s a big, bad world out there, and there are lots of languages spoken all around the world, even in North America.

  • are the resident evil 2 & gta chinatown wars price drops permanent? if so awesome! i may pick up re 2 now and get gta when i get a new psn card.

  • Save for Legend of Dragoon for another week. Sony did justice this week with Xenogears. :)

  • purchased xenogears

  • Grace, are you stupid? Or perhaps I am mistaken. I always thought that China Town Wars was a PSP game, not a PS3 game. Care to comment on your stupidity?

    Sony please hire someone with an IQ higher than that of a monkey to run your PSN. Thank you.

  • Sky Fighters maybe! Also, looking forward to my free theme(s)! Thanks, Sony!

  • put HEAVY RAIN (complete game) for sale on the PSN. please

  • XENOGEARS is a great game. Will be picking that up. Other than that absolutely nothing of Interest for me this week.

    Oh, BULLETSTORM is an AWESOME game. But I pre-ordered it for 360 cuz it had more content…. but I recommend it to anyone thinking about picking it up.


  • @60 Chuckbait

    Trolls be trollin’. It’s a bunch of copy/paste; there are bound to be errors, but you don’t have to put people down on the internet to get an ego boost.

    On topic, I’m pretty psyched for Xenogears. I’ll be putting it on my PSP for some nice mobile action. And the Dragon Age II demo will be the true test on my decision whether or not to buy it.

  • @50

    Thanks for the info; I was about to ask the same thing :)

  • We finally got Xenogears!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @60

    Cool down, man. It’s no big deal; I’m sure the Store will have them placed and classified correctly.

  • Grace, i know there is like zero chance of a reply but I’ll ask anyway:

    Are you guys planning on adding retail PS3 games to the store on a semi regular basis, or are the current digital bluray titles one off exceptions?

  • Nice update! I thought you would get a theme that pertains to the game you voted for though, not just a gamers choice theme :/

  • viewtiful joe avatars YES!

  • I just downloaded Dead Money (English version) and after I paid for it I noticed that there was also a French version and that’s when I noticed I apparently own the French version being from Canada. Even though my copy is in English but I assume it just has a bilingual option.

    Is there any way to get this switched so that I have the correct working version of Dead Money. Without having to re-buy something I’ve already paid for???


  • Nice update Grace. thanks

  • Any chance of a Days of Thunder demo? I just watched that movie other day (actually the day of the Daytona 500 and not realizing it) and I loved the movie. The Top Gun demo sucked me into this game, so it might do the same for this other Tom Cruise classic.

  • Xenogears!…one week after MVC3+Neptunia+Back to the Future
    Ouch my pocket XD

  • I scrolled down to see Xenogears and slammed my chair arms so hard my hands are throbbing. :D

    #1 It’s about ****** time.
    #2 THANK YOU!
    #3 Buying now.

  • I don’t understand why there are people complaining about this update after all the whining for Xenogears. And for crying out loud a Dragon Age 2 demo!

  • XENOGEARS better come to eu or ima cry and tell my mom

    seriously i will troll psblog to hell if it doesn’t come to eu

  • lol the duke nukem trailer just blurs out the 360 controller.. hope that doesn’t happen in the PS3 version

  • When are we getting the Final Fantasy 012 Decidia demo(prologus)? Anybody know?

  • Does the MLB 11 Demo support the Move? I am interested in this game because of Move support, but otherwise I’m not interested.

  • Early update, but there is nearly nothing new update for plus users, sad. Anyway, may get alien breed 3, because I have already got the first two series. Awesome game.

  • @ 76 Usedtoiletpaper

    Maybe some people weren’t waiting for that game? I for one wasn’t. i still have my ps1 copy of it so buying it would just be a waste. Also just because some people complaint about a game being release doesnt mean everyone is. Heck im still waiting on Crisis Core for the psp (as i have a Go)

    So not trying to be rude or calling you out, but just stating that not everyone in the world is/was wanting the game. Some people were and they are happy that it was release.

  • @2 and anybody curious about Final fantasy I and II. According to Final Fantasy Union Final fantasy I was due out on the 16th of february and Final fantasy II on March 2nd. Since i have not seen FFI i assume we aren’t seeing them soon.
    I have also contacted square enix asking “When could we be expecting a release of FFII on PSN.” They told me “There are no plans for that as of right now” Sooooo… Thats all i can say.

  • Awesome update this week. A lot of nice bargains I will definitely be taking part in. However, there is a couple of pricing oddities I’ve picked up on the last couple of weeks:

    Patapon $15.99
    Patapon 2 $7.99

    I personally think it would be great to knock Patapon’s price down from $15.99 to $9.99 or even $7.99 like it’s sequel (especially with Patapon 3 coming down the pipeline).

    Now we can’t mention Patapon without mentioning LocoRoco.

    LocoRoco $22.99
    LocoRoco 2 $7.99
    LR: Midnight Carnival Bundle $9.99

    I personally think LocoRoco could take a price drop as well. Possibly even sell a bundle with all 3 games of LocoRoco and (down the road of course) all 3 games of Patapon. The PSP’s best games need more recognition. Everyone needs to play these amazing, innovative games.

  • Good update. Please more PSOne classics and PS3 Legacy titles, as well as a storefront for the latter, along with a storefront for Dreamcast Legacy titles.

  • Another very weak update, in general, only Dragon Age 2 demo and Xenogears are worth wild!!!

    But still: WHERE THE HELL IS HARD CORPS: UPRISING?????????????

    And Playstation Plus is supposed to offer every 2 weeks, its that week, so where the **** is it?????????

  • ps plus gets $2.50 off 1 game?


    maybe I shouldn’t have gotten plus :|

  • @starBlinkey01: This isn’t the week for PS+ updates. I consider it pretty good to see one discount when I expected zero.

  • well i usually don’t play demos but bioware is smart make by making the demo mean something as you get an exclusive(or early) weapon after beating it. And with my Signature Edition I intend to take full advantage of both. :P

  • wow… thnx.. downloading dragon age 2 demo.. mlb 11 demo.. and considering GTA4 bundle.. mmm.. interesting.. when you say “limited promotional period” I guess it’s running all this week? right?

  • rockstar quit being a bunch of [DELETED] and drop the price of tbogt. i already bought tlatd when it’s price was dropped.

  • Very excited about xenogears, RE2 and have yet to pick up the GTAIV bundle so this is a good week for me!

    Is next week supposed to be a big week for plus, haven’t read anything about it but some people seem to be excited for it?

  • Awesome demos, Xenogears (YES!!!!), and good batch of content. Looking forward to next week too!

  • I have a BIG question.

    Do i need to have the GTA IV disc, to be able of playing the Bundle that is in disccount?

    Thanks 4 the help!

  • I love me some space ace.

  • @anyone: I’ve been waiting to pick up a slashed ps3/p ps1 classic but I’ve never played Resident Evil other than the demo for 5 which I wasn’t able to beat. Should I get Resident Evil 2? I don’t have any survival horror games but I like Dead Space. I primarily play action/adventure.

  • Ive got the same question as 93.
