that makes no sense. the compilation of the disc is the same as the digital Download.

why wouldnt you want your game on the PSN store? you cut off the middle man and make more profit from both a real store and a Digital Download store.

Part of the initial success of the PSP was Lumines, a stunningly inventive music-synced puzzler that’s since seen various ports on various platforms. The original’s still the best, though, but if you were expecting to be able to play it on your PSPgo any time soon you’re mistaken, as Q Entertainment’s Twitter has highlighted the reasons behind the absence of the game on the PSN Store, especially frustrating for me as I love the game.

“We would love to bring Lumines/Lumines II to the PSN store,” they said, “but there are complications, music licensing, was published by Namco, etc… It’s just not as simple a matter of slapping Lumines I/II up on PSN as it seems. The songs “Shinin’” and “Lights” were licensed for the UMD version of the game. To repurpose the game for PSN, we’d need to re-license, etc. And since Bandai Namco is the publisher of Lumines I, it’s basically up to them to put on PSN.”

“We’d love to see it as a PSN game, though!”

i bought the lumines game that's on the psn cause i've heard so many great things about it but i really don't see what all the fuss is about. I don't really care for it to be honest. The music is nice but i don't like how the puzzle system is set up. I think my problem is that i suck at it. I can never get past the 4th song.

I guess, Q Entertainment's Marketing Executive failed business class. Maybe he/she never went to college. Who knows...?

Import 'XI Colliseum' from Japan, its basically a PSP port of PSone's Devil Dice, one of the best PSP puzzle games out there. Also, Echochrome is fatally missing.

Might check out Cube, looks a bit like Kula World.

They missed Crush its my favorite puzzle game on the psp. Crush is a puzzle game where you turn the 3D world in to 2D to solve the puzzles.
