Classic PlayStation gaming through the PSP and PS3 just got a bit more expensive over in Japan. Along with the ability to at long last play Game Archive titles on the PS3 comes a higher download price for all Game Archive games old and new.
they got the cheaper system anyway, so why does it matter...
they were introductory prices...same for UK :( il miss out on the cheap prices
Deep when are you gonna get a PS3? I feel kinda sorry for you! We should start up a "Get Deep a PS3 drive" or something! I got $5 canadian to give you!
il set up my paypal :)
Did the US get introductory prices?
but we have got Michael Jordan.
buy buy buy... buy now before its too late.
free online service somehow.
So you pay for BXL $60 a year but all the content is free......
Upping the price isn't good at all but it's better than to pay for getting online AND the contents.
the prices are just right for whats being offered. i had no problem paying $20 for Tekken but if it were more, i might be more reluctant to buy
Tekken is 10euros here :D
'til end of may, tho.
More deceit from sony. Did not even mention the fact that those were introductory prices and they would not continue for long. How is that wonderful free Playstation network doing anyway?
its excellent.. cuz its free.. woohoo.. not paying to play online is awesome.. you should try it.
Thank you kindly for asking.
The available downloadable titles aren't too shabby either...and a decent bargain to boot!
question Sab...do you pay for games on xboxlive market place? Yus thought so...
Prices in the UK are a steal at the mo...what is it, like £6.99 for Tekken5!!!
yes we pay for games to download, but the games on xboxlive cost us about $6-$12 depending on the game
yes same on PSN i believe except for Tekken5 which is a whole new game, not an arcade game.
"Sony to increase downloadable PSOne prices as a result of greater demand caused by frantic millions scrambling to horde downloadable PSone titles in fear that Sony to increase downloadable PSOne prices!"
That's a very wordy headline you've got yourself there :)
Are you seriouse? well I guess if you have not experienced a real online network than you would not feel like what you have is a good thing. Poor sheep.
now sony joins MS in gougin for downloadables.
welcome to horsearmour land.
ALL games on XBL marketplace I can download an TRY!! unlike the PSN I wanted to try the tekken 5 out before I bought it an there was no option to download without buying!!EVERY ARCADE AVAILBLE I can download an play on XBL.
You're paying $50 a year for those demos. Nothing on XBL is free, it's all part of your $50 a year.
PSN service is free, the demos it has availalbe are FREE.
while you get a playable version of atari's original pitfall in XBL and Ms. Pacman, you get can get real demos from PSN and not burgertime fun =P
Its only in japan, good god you people will shyte on anything that Sony does bad or good for that matter. In the Uk we got Tekken 5 for 7 quid im sorry but when did the xbox market place get a full version of tekken with 2 extra characters and revamped graphics for 7 quid? you didnt. Also gnothe maybe drag your @ss into the demos, there all there to try mate :)
-Sony would only raise prices in its beloved backyard? are you sh!ttin me?
-Plus tekken has been a Playstion game.(who knows for how long, (MS's been willin and dealin)
Sony's online will never be as great as XBL, 5 years of trial and error, and $50 a year for well maintained servers is not gonna break the bank.
$4 a month, is cheap change. You could pan handle like a bum, if you really had to and make more then that a month.
( Whoever told you anything free is good, is a liar )
Xbl Live is over-rated.
it`s not as good as you say it is(ghost recon matches drop constantly).
and matches take for ever to get in(as long as motorstorm).
If had less problem w/PSN then w/XBL to tell you the truth.
If never been dropped from a match of Resistance or Motorstorm.
all XBL has that is better is ingame private chat.
to tell the truth.
Do you have the ps3 or PSN or are you just speculating?
you show me where theres a tekken 5 demo fool!! they got about 15-20 demos no more than 20 game demos. I was talking about classic games or arcade games.they got blast factor or cell factor which ever one it is an a lemmings demo an what else!! can you download the mortal kombat demo an try it before you buy it, you can on XBL.
I have been playing GRAW 2 since it came out an the only time I have ever dropped a game is when the host leaves the room.an as far as getting into games goes,yeah I dont understand why Ubisoft made the game so you have to wait in the lobby to get into games you have to wait in between rounds.now COD2 I can just jump right into a game an start playing, so thats something that the developer did not a restriction of XBL. I havent played motorstorm online enough to get a feel of its online action!!
i can agree w/ that. well worded.
but when ever i played everyone had to turn their headsets off before a match or else it would drop out.
i`m GR is still a great game.
all i`m saying is XBL isn`t that much better than PSN (in my opinion).
ex. Resistance from the second you launch into the game from XMB it takes less than thirty/sixty seconds getting in a 40/40 match(quick skipping title screens) and your shooting away, it`s really quite impressive.
An increase from 525YEN to 600YEN is a freakin FIFTY CENTS USD increase.
OMG find something else to complain about will you.
Can the PS3 owners (fanboys) ever catch a break? I really feel sorry for you guys don't get me wrong but, you gotta be askin' yourself come on sony don't turn into the saturn!
