  • thanks for the update but why havent we gotten all the avatars for Dissida

  • Sweet update, Golden Axe here I come. And please hurry up with Altered Beast.

    • Altered Beast is definitely part of the program; it’ll be here in good time; and as it goes for all the games in the Genesis Collection, it’ll be coming free and early to Plus.

  • Digital-Big-Boss

    lucky # 7

  • sometimes a wonder why i got a psp:/

    • If you missed any games in the recent dual pack releases; check them out. All available on the store right now to download: Daxter and Secret Agent Clank | Killzone Liberation and Syphon FilterL Logan’s Shadow | SOCOM Fireteam Bravo and Syphon Filter Dark Mirror. All awesome and all just $15 for each Dual Pack.

  • Great update. Loving the sales. Downloading a few things right now :)

  • Capcom Puzzle World – Sale (PS3) (now $4.99, original price $9.99)
    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite Digital – Sale (PS3) (now $9.99, original price $19.99)
    Mega Man Maverick Hunter X – Sale (PS3) (now $4.99, original price $9.99)

    That is PSP, not PS3, oh my god! I thought MH3 is already on PS3, that is a big joke!

  • Digital-Big-Boss

    No PSone, as usual.

  • Cant wait to get my hands on the FFVII pack.

  • Good update this week, getting those lbp2 costumes and Pixeljunk shooter 2!!! Gonna try out the Catherine demo as well.

  • No PE2 yet… ;-;

  • ZettaiZetsumei77

    @ Wocyob

    I think we’re getting the rest of the Dissidia avatars on the 19th, at the same time the DLC (finally) gets put back on the US store (FF5,6 and 11 costumes and tracks)

    As for this update, it’s a little bit lackluster in my opinion. I’ll be trying out the demo for Catherine…..but that’s about it. Nothing to see here.

    PLEASE come out with some type of psp support, too. I know the system is on its way out but come on, at least any decent PSOne Classics? Like *ahem* FINAL FANTASY 6??? Every other region already has it besides the US….even the Wii store put it up last week, for crying out loud!

  • i should have never bought a psp go

  • oh sorry to post again but the Yellow icons need to be changed… its pretty hard to see the white writing/icons

    but the set up it much cleaner

  • You just made a true Final Fantasy VII fan proud! *pats LBP2 in the back*

  • Man this is going to suck up the whole $50 psn card I just bought. Awesome update Sony.

  • I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the new PS+ layout in the store. Very well done. Now some great content to go with the great functionality…

  • DiRT 3 DLC is all I need. Golden Axe is a nice little bonus!

    ***Proud PS+ Member***

  • Hmmm… Not really anything I’m interested in….

  • Lovin the updates! All you need is a summer sale for PSP!

  • what happen to the psp we need more stuff for it.i know there is the new psvita but what about the psp 3000,2000,and 1000.the only thing that is new about every playstation store update is minis and pulse. please get more stuff for the psp

  • Nice update!

  • it was nice seeing AC Brotherhood on ps store… bring us more retail games when possible :D

    • Brotherhood is definitely an amazing experience; if anyone hasn’t checked it out yet the Full Game Trial will make you a believer! If you’re not a Plus member to get at the Full Game Trial, well…then, just take my word for it ;)

  • Quick question, Do you know when or if ever Siren Blood Curse will be half off or on sale?

  • You guys are doing so much better at getting the store updates out a lot earlier in the day than you did previously. Thank you so much for making that effort, it is appreciated. Hope you can stick to doing this consistently and the late ones become the anomaly. I love when the store ready by the time I get home from work around 530pm.

  • Hi, I was wondering if it’s possible to get any money back if you bought something last week and it’s on sale this week? I recently decided to buy Monster Hunter Freedom Unite after Capcom’s sale last week, and I foolishly assumed that that was all they were going to have, because it doesn’t really make sense to split sales into chunks like that. But anyways, it’s 50% off now and I feel like a fool. Is a $10 refund possible or am I out of luck? Thanks in advance.

  • DIRT 3 STRATOS, awwww yeeeaahhh! :D

  • PS1 Legacy: 0
    PSP Legacy: 0

    Different date, same results.

    This week PSP gets a new Mini… which is of course playable on PS3, so this week PSP gets nothing to itself. There is a nice little sale on a few Capcom PSP classics. Nothing for me though, I already have the ones I want. Hmmm… yeah, that’s all I got. That’s all Sony got. As someone who only owns a PSP this update sucks. A big old 0 out of 5 for the PS Store this week.

  • Izanagi-no-Okami

    So we get just a costume pack for Final Fantasy VII? Such a let~down, cosidering how long some of us been waiting for the FFVII stuff.

  • Very excited to play the Catherine demo in english!

  • Cool I’ve been hoping that knives chau DLC would go on plus. I was hoping free, but a dollar isn’t too much at all.

  • in relation to the BttF series sale: any time frame when Episode 5 should be on the store? few weeks? August?

  • meh nothing here for me. no ps1 and no dlc i need.

  • Shadow of the Colossus Dynamic theme ….. can I have it please?

  • I just bought the Back to the Future complete series, but it will only let me download episode 1, it has the “An error occurred during the install operation (8071040C)” error..same kinda crap that the Sam & Max games did to me awhile back. I’m getting really sick of TellTale Games errors. Please, either fix this, or like last time, send me a message to my PSN account, to the downloads of these games.

  • I keep waiting of Square Enix for PSN releases I want PS One classics Final Fantasy V, Final Fantasy VI, and Parasite Eve II and PSP on the PSN I know I’m a fool for holding out hope but I want Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep on the PSN.

  • There’s a sale on 3 PSP games so I don’t know what you all are complaining about. I’m going to pick up Mega Man and Capcom Puzzle World.

  • I saw AC Brotherhood in the store for $19.99 new yesterday.

  • Mr. Haro,

    Is there any plans to add more MLB The Show team avatars to the store?!

  • Are we ever going to get Parasite Eve II on PSN? It was supposed to be released in March and it still hasn’t even been rated by the ESRB yet.

  • It’s funny how when you have PS+ you don’t so much get better deals as you’re paying to get the same prices everyone used to get before it existed. Now those who don’t have PS+ are being charged more via less of a discount on games. Strange economics. I don’t happen to agree with them.

  • So NCAA football came out today and they already have content in the store. What a rip off, how hard is it to offer a complete game.

    L.A Noire at least gave us a cheap pass alternative for ALL there DLC. Its like I said in most of my complaints companies will do any thing for a buck… It is unethically, they all need to go back and take business ethics. Come on, day one dlc is garbage!

  • looking forward to next week for oldworld blues =)

  • Actually, i restarted my PS3 and deleted the Episode 1 download from my “downloads pending” and it let me download the rest of the games. Quick question, when is episode 5 going to be released?

  • No Catherine theme? I want a Catherine theme…

  • Still no Crash Commando???

    And waiting for the ultra important and useful “legacy” post :P

  • As a DSi/3DS owner, I have to say, Mighty Flip Champs is a great game, but as a longtime PSP owner, the shortage of original content is saddening
