Are you sure it isn't just the demo of Echochrome that's going up?
Misread that on the PS blog. It's just the demo today, but the game will ultimately be $9.99.


I also am changing the thread title to what it is now to make these threads more GAF-search friendly.

Echochrome demo is a instant download. I´ve been dying to play this game since E3 last year, and now I finally can get a hold on the game.
You could've gotten a hold of it last month from the Japan store (in Japanese) or Hong Kong store (in English) :p

Great banner as always!:lol

Are you really buying CoD4 map pack? I mean GTA IV is out on Tuesday and MGO beta goes live tonight (hopefully). I don't think I'm gonna bother with CoD4 for sometime now except if the maps are really good. Are they?

Command & Conquer!?!?!? Are you kidding me? AWESOME.
I spent three intense months playing it every day on the PSOne back when it came out.
What a delightful fat twin-cover package of glory that was.

Edit: Also, my little sister who won't even touch a videogame today rounded that game and kept replaying the last missions over and over. My mind is blown remembering that actually, how things change.

Well at least Europe can say they occasionally get a PS1 game or two, meanwhile NA gets shit.

Of course, this being the week I'm going to blow $15 on Screaming for Vengeance, they'll have like 5 new PS1 games just to smite me.

...yeah right. :lol
