PSu provides a complete guide to what is available on the PlayStation store for purchase and download.
Everything from demos to trailers, we update it every thursday!
Those prices are pretty steep in some areas, they could really take a cue from the LIVE Marketplace with the standardized costs (I.E. $5 or $10).
At the risk of instigating the ire of the Sony fanboys, I'll say this.
With $20 downloads, it seems Sony is making up for their 'free' online service by charging like a bastard for the content.
The PSP games should be no more than $4.99, and that's if they were truly amazing.
I also think $5.99 isnt quite right for a ps1 game that most people own but cant play because its old and scratched. IF you own the game you should get a price break or a 2 for 1 deal. $20 for tekken was well worth it though. the game is arcade perfect and runs at 1080p. they sold the same game with crappy graphics on psp for 39.99 so $20 was a steal.
I don't think $6 is too much for a PS1 game; I've paid more than that on eBay to get a copy of an old game from the past. I agree though that standardized pricing would be a good thing, but don't believe that Sudoku should cost the same as, say, Calling All Cars or anything; so individual princing makes sense.
And the $20 game is an actual, full Tekken game.
I've paid more on ebay for an NES game as well, but the difference is I'm getting a hard copy of that game, often with manual, box or more and certainly something of value that I can trade later if need be.
However, $6 for just the data seems somewhat high. Not excessively high, mind you. I can't say the prices aren't "fair", just that they're a bit higher than I would like to pay. Especially without the box and manual and disc.

a nice list for some one who is about to buy a ps3. i never really noticed my self but their is a lot of content on the psn. i have almost all the demo's, flow ,tekken, and a bunch of trailers and have already used over 20 gb of my hard drive space.i wonder how much space would be needed to down load all of this content ( our how long...zzzzzzz....) plus with virua fighter 5 taking 2.5 gb of my hard drive space and with all my other game data i'll be using up my 60 gigs in no time..i need 160gigs + ..
$6 is alot for a PS1 game. That would translate to around £11 in English money..you can buy a 2nd hand PS2 game on that amount.
Sorry, but 6 dollars is around 3 UK pounds.
The prices are not the same in the UK...translates to £11!? Where'd you get that from? I believe they are £4.99 and Tekken...a full game of which you will not find on xbox live, is £6.99 :)
Yea sorry about my conversion. And I dont think it's relevant to compare downloadable game prices between a £200 console against a £425 console.
If i had it my way, I'd want everything in the PS Store free :D
I would pay 10 dollers for FF7.
