Aftermath Map Pack will be $5.99 and Character skins will be $0.99 a piece. Patch will also hit (which means a firmware update may be in store soon).

What does the Patch do that would mean a firmware is in store?

I was just checking the thread and I finally know where the themes are for the Japanese store :lol The weird thing is I went to download one, and it takes me to the 'purchase' screen and somehow I have ¥1000 in my account?

Logging in with 2 PSN accounts will be possible with the new Resistance 2 patch. Previously, jstevenson said this was not possible because the firmware wasn't there to allow it...so I'm kind of guessing that maybe there will be a firmware update for this.

You loaded that much into your account?

All I did was log in with my Japanese account, and check the theme section. I found one I wanted to try and it took me to the area where you can buy something, and apparently this theme is ¥100 and I'll be at ¥900 when it's subtracted. I'm not sure what happened :eek:

for the love of God where is Bomberman Ultra and/or Fat Princess?
Jeff is constantly asked about Bomberman on the PSblog but he says he doesn't know what's going on with it. We'll find out more about FP this week since its new build will be at GDC.

Have you ever loaded a Japanese PSN ticket into your account or registered for a contest?

One weird thing about my Japanese account is that I never actually set up the e-mail I'm using, so I could have been sent several promotional codes by now and wouldn't ever know it.
 
#32
Yeah haha, didn't even cross my mind to actually check the R2 thread. Thanks. The game has needed some decent weapon balancing for far too long and I'm disappointed to see that they took so long, but I do love it and would like to see some good changes made.

If I recall correctly, the backend functionality for this was included in the last firmware update.

Come on Tenchu PSone classic... Come on Tenchu PSone classic... Come on Tenchu PSone classic...

So I read that the grappling hook ISN'T in the new Wii / PSP (this week) Tenchu game

What the? That was the best part of the original - how could they take it out??? My only hope is that they release the original on PSN as some sort of promotion for the new game :(

It won't happen will it gaf :(

Tenchu 4 is different from previous Tenchu games--"more realistic" would sum it up if it still didn't have ninja cats and stuff like that. Think Splinter Cell with Ninja and almost more of a puzzle game. The Wii version was great outside of the poor controls. I plan to pick up the PSP version when it's out.

We get some Resistance 2 stuffs this week, and a firmware update if the patch does come on 3/26.

So, what do we think is the probability for PS1 games from SCEA?
