  • Would Love to see Flatout 2 from the PS2 make it to the PS3 with a full game upgrade. I`m sure others would agree!!

  • Im failing to see the “healthy dose” of PSVita games here

  • Not a very big drop but hopefully april will have some nice things for us ps+ and new games. What up ray!

  • I’d like some more Vita games… :)

  • Need better game then GOLF!!!!!

  • They can’t all be zingers!!!! but that’s ok I guess as I have a lot of stuff to do….Like comment on this blog post!

  • Pretty Lame drop this week, with the exception of closure. I’ll be checking out the demo for that. Other than that, I agree with the other posters who want more Vita games. My wallet is open, Sony, but you have to Give me something worth buying!

  • Nothing good.

  • Any news on Legend of Dragoon or any other psone classics?

  • We need more Vita games or at least some news on when the already announced games like lbp are actually coming.

  • I guess the RMS Vitanic is dead in the water

  • So yea, can we get a firmware update to organize our download history into categories, and a feature to sign in invisible. PS3 is pretty old now. These are basic.

  • SMH, Nothing for my Vita, for another week smh. I see no Skype either.

  • I have $40-$50 ready to drop on a full blown Ps Vita games like Uncharted was on launch.

    Any suggestions? besides Unit 13, because it might be a good game, but it plays like bite size.

    besides the slow PS vita AAA games coming, when is PS One games are going to be playable on Vita?

    Lets face it, is inexcusable that the Vita does not play our beloved Final Fantasy games

    Love the Vita, but after launch there is little reason to get pumped for it (keep in mind the 3DS has been having a AAA year so far)

  • ummm wat happend to silent hill book of memerys or watever that was post to come out on tuesday as well did it get pushed back or somthing unless u guys made an error lol just checking

  • Alright, Closure looks pretty neat. I’m usually down for a good indie platformer. Although, I must admit… There’s a serious lack of variety on PSN. Aren’t we well overdue for a good chunk of PSone/PS2 classics? If there’s little new to fill the void, there’s plenty of old that myself, as well as many others, would love to dive back into again. Any idea when we’re going to see some more?

  • We need a FIRM release date for LittleBigPlanet Vita. Sony has been teasing it since the announcement of PS Vita. The least you could do is provide a date… Preferably a nice day in April or May at the latest.

  • Wow looks like another dull update. really hope sales, or something surprising happens on Tuesday.

  • I want my skype and more demos and games for vita

  • Please remind me why I’m a PSN Plus subscriber . . .

  • Definitely going to pick up Closure. I’ve had 20 dollars sitting in my wallet for weeks now and I think this is a great reason to spend it.

    Also hoping for more Tales of Graces f DLC. Maybe those Code Geass costumes? :D

  • @DelMurice~Maybe because you can’t afford not to be a Plus member..? haha just sayin!
    @Sony~Legend of Dragoon, Mega Man Legends, Mortal Komat Trilogy…PLEASE and THANKS!

  • @21: Because of last week… *sigh*
    But you’re right, this month sucked.

  • Plz bring MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, Capcom vs SNK 2, San Andreas, and Vice City to PSN!!!!!

  • When will there be a Skype application available for the PS VITA?

  • Where are PSP games for vita ? Castlevania, Metal Gear and GTA would be great. :D

  • @JoHnnyXR81 i agree with snk vs cap 2

  • You Guys need to slam us with new Vita info! I mean come on Rey would’nt you like to do more on your PSVITA?? Sid,Jeff come on guys talk for us

  • Wow another pathetic update last good thing on PSN was the fricken Simpsons Arcade game.

  • Pretty crappy drop this week. Oh well, At least I got Peace Walker to work on my Vita, so I’m set there.

  • So, we are not getting Assasssin’s Creed Revelations on PSN like Europe?

  • @ 3

    You expect Devs to shell out new games every week or something? The Vita launched just a month ago and you want a bunch of Vita games every week? Get real.

  • Hey, Rey, I’ve been asking you every week – any idea when we’re getting Malicious? Europe got it almost two months ago.

  • I’ll be checking out Closure, but otherwise it looks like a fairly light update. And I’m thankful for that, too. Spring Fever + Final Fantasy = Thin Wallet. I’d been holding out on rebuying the PS1 era FFs for a discount since I still have my discs, so the combination of Spring Fever and PS+ discounts was too good to pass up. I got EVERYTHING.

  • I was all pumped up to read this week’s drop and then I came here and saw this timid entry.
    And how long is EA going to milk TW’s Golf… talk about beating a dead horse. *Yawn*

    Here’s a Tip for you Sony… You like Money $$ right?? RELEASE MORE, A LOT MORE PS2 CLASSICS!… please.
    And not some lame ones nobody cares about… I’m talking AAA PS2 Games… on PSN A.S.A.P.

  • Hey, Sony. Vita is tanking miserably in Japan (it may not be doing much better in America based on the minimal fanfare its been receiving) and in a fashion you guys are pretty notorious for, you appear to be sitting back, unable to swallow your pride, and doing nothing about it.

    Now that’s not saying you’re not making an effort to build momentum here because maybe you are, but at least make some noise, hook our attention, etc. We need to see proof that you are in fact putting an effort into progress. Publicly take note to criticisms, keep us updated on new firmware development status, features, etc- not just a week or day before it releases, but throughout the development cycle as well. While you guys seem to be doing some of that on the PSBlog, it just seems like the company as a whole isn’t doing enough. We live in an era that thrives on social media and connectivity and you guys need to capitalize on it.

    Of course this mini-rant is probably falling on deaf ears, but I needed to vent already.

  • I’m glad I decided to hold out on buying a Vita until a good sale/price drop.
    You would think Sony would support it more during the first month.
    Not even considering they haven’t patched in minis/PSone support, among other things they promised.

  • any plans on a price drop for the PSP Silent Hill: Shattered Memories? It’s been down to $19.99 in stores for a while but it’s still $29.99 on the PSN store. As soon as it drops, I’ll download it. I already have it for another system, but I want to have it on my Vita.

  • Also, with what others are saying about the Vita, I got one day one, had it reserved since the beginning of august last year. I’m a bit disappointed with the lack of synchronicity between the Vita and the PS3 like was promised. Granted, it hasn’t been out that long yet, but I was at least expecting for the PSN accounts to work together so that I could see my Vita trophies on the PS3, and that I could see what my other friends that have Vitas are playing from my PS3. The inability to play PSOne games is disappointing too. One other thing that was teased that I was hoping to try was using the Vita as a PS3 controller.

  • @16 Silent Hill:Book Of Memories is delayed till a May release according to Amazon and Gamefly that is why it’s not listed in the drop

  • I agree with klassymike. I miss FlatOut and demand a FlatOut 1&2 bundle release. FlatOut 4ever!

  • Looking forward to Closure. Why are there no reviews out? Reviews for Journey were out way before release and helped build hype. Since Closure is also part of the Spring Fever campaign I would’ve thought Sony would make sure the release gets a lot of exposure. Guess I shouldn’t underestimate Sony’s ability to do things wrong.

  • When is Dragon’s Crown supposed to come out?

  • @43 I am not sure why there is no reviews but, this game was mentioned as coming to the psn on the playstation blog and other game sites advertised summer of last year I have been looking forward to getting it.

  • @44 the developer Vanillaware has changed the spring 2012 release date to a general 2012 release so know idea when it will be released yet

  • @44 the developer Vanillaware has changed the spring 2012 release date to a general 2012 release so no idea when it will be released yet

  • I really want Closure! Must support devs, but no income at the moment ;_; The game will be mine eventually though!

  • @ Xanzar
