Nothing for PSP

- God of War III (Standard (The W at Amazon)/Ultimate Edition)
- Resonance of Fate
- Dragon Age: Origins Awakening [expansion pack; requires full game]

- BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
- God of War III
- MotoGP 09/10

This isn't PS3, but just in case I'm not the last one to find this out, SquareEnis has put out iPod Touch/iPhone versions of Final Fantasy I and Final Fantasy II for $9 each. I think I still have a copy of this in 1 or 2 formats already, but being able to bring Cecil & Kain with me on something I'm already carrying will surely mean I'll be buying this copy too.

It's not Cecil & Kain - it's JPN FFII. I'd imagine it wouldn't change your buying decision though.

I always forget to convert the numbering. FFII (Japan) is far less interesting.

A couple things...

God of War 3 is awesome... but... I'll save my more general thoughts about it for a different thread. Worth a play? HELL yes. Worth a buy? Subjective.

The Heavy Rain soundtrack is epic, and I hope enough people buy it so that it becomes more of a regular thing to get these kinds of downloads available. I, for one, would love to see the same treatment given to God of War & Uncharted.

After a big lapse in time, Little Big Planet PSP is finally getting the kind of support I'd hoped it would get.

More Sam & Max? Yes, please.

What's the deal with Sony doing premium themes and avatars, but then releasing them sparingly and without support for their big new releases? Heavy Rain has gotten the best premium theme support so far, and MAG & LBP are the only two to get premium avatar love. How do you release as many big exclusives as Sony has been lately and not deliver more premium content along with them? It seems like a big oversight, and an obvious way to make more money with limited effort. They also have so much content on the PSN that's never promoted correctly or well enough to make consumers aware of its existence. This is one area that Xbox Live does so much better, and they've already got your money! If you're going to make online free, why would you half-ass the areas you can make money off of?

In a related note, Jack Tretton alluded to premium pricing plans for the PSN but made it sound like the free version would also be an option. If so, then what kind of content could they make available that would convince people to pay for something more than what they already get? Exclusive demos/betas? Rentals of movies included in the price? I'm really interested to see where they're going with this. Tretton also said that the Playstation Move is just the "icing on the cake" and that at E3 he will "bring the batter." He followed that by saying there may be no formal announcement of Killzone 3 at the show, so then what? Infamous 2 & Resistance 3, as rumored? Uncharted PSP? A new online Twisted Metal? He also hinted at a new PSP, which... wow. Consider the dead horse beaten, Jack. They should wait until all the backlash from the Go has subsided before even attempting to announce yet another iteration.

Next week is HUGE on the PSN. Free MAG DLC, Sonic in Little Big Planet (hopefully cross-platform), and the Blue Toad Murder Files, which I've been waiting what seems like forever for. Can't wait.

Is the Move is "icing on the cake", is the cake made of garbage? Every review I've read makes it seem like yet another overpriced Sony idea that'll go nowhere.

I did download FFI for the iphone and it's fun. Haven't played it since the original version came out so the updated graphics are nice.
