IGN AU's Top 10 PlayStation Network Games

While Xbox 360 and Wii owners are spoilt for choice when it comes to their respective online game services, with XBLA now housing a huge catalogue with a number of true gems, and Nintendo's Virtual Console steadily building an archive of retro classics, Sony's PlayStation Store has been slower to build up momentum. A glance around the store still reveals a relative paucity of quality titles – whether new or retro, but the good news is that there are a number of titles well worth your time on the service already, and there are plenty more on the way.

PlayStation Network Games? I thought Sony gave up on that Idea... how many games do they get a month? when was the last time they got one? the xbox 360 gets 4 a month... and they are already on the tripple diggits... Developers obviously aren't going crazy over making games for the Playstation network. I wonder how many downloads these games sell?

The majority of the games that are in Xbox Live Marketplace are 5h1t, on the other side the mojority of the games that are in the playstation network are awesome some of them are:
PAIN
High Velocity Bowling
Calling All Cars
Everyday Shooter
Super Stardust HD
Blast Factor & more

So Bladesh1t please shut up!

Sorry Bladestar, but Warhawk beats anything i've downloaded on my 360.

Got Pixal Junk Racers 2 weeks ago & still waiting for PAIN,
High Velocity Bowling & Everyday Shooter in UK (hopefully today).

Wii is a joke, and ppl actually pay for those retro games. I am amazed. When little big planet come out, 2D market will be redefined (which is good, because I love 2Ds, Mega man and such). The wii 2D games will most likily appear in the forms of Little big planet.

The X360 has some good online DLC, but on a ounce for ounce PSN is far more classier. It's really like going into a honda Dealer and seeing a bunch of Civic and accord as compare to going into a BMW dealer seeing the crappiest car is a 325i (everyday shooter) and upward 7 series (Warhawk) if you will.. Less games? yes..quality wise. there is some pretty good stuff on PSN right now. More innovation less of the "Same stuff" sorry Wii.

Amazing poster and one of the best racing franchises in the games industry - Period
No game give you the speed and rush like WipEout and the music is a key component to the game
Must make lots more WipEout's

RedDevils1004d ago

I love trance and wipeout has one of the best tracks in it.

dbcoops1004d ago

Sony been getting that fake outrage since '94. lol.

Inverno1004d ago

mourne for that late 90s and 00s swag. All the cool stuff never known by dumb child me, curses!

PCgamer981004d ago

This is pretty tame actually when compared to other posters in the 90s/00s.

Roundtable: Dead Game Franchises We Miss

With every big game now belonging to a big intellectual property, there are those that have become redundant. Here are the series' we miss.

RPGer1167d ago

I miss Dark Cloud I mean damn, Dark Cloud 2 is one of the best Action RPG game ever made. The game have: Rich Worlds, different setting, tons of contents, vareity in gameplay like never before (and even after), best buliding mechanics, crafting system like no one did and finally impressive graphics.

Most underrated game ever. It deserved the popularity and sales of Zelda and Final Fantasy. ut unfortunately, Level-5 and Sony didn't advertise it at all.

titans99991167d ago

My franchises I wish would make a come back, are Battlefront by pandemic studios - galactic conquest was the best, mercenaries 1 and 2, and prototype 1 and 2...great games!
