Very unlikely. Blog post says "you will learn more over the coming weeks."

Also, Tanod, you can add these two PSN titles from doublesix games if you have a place for them:
- Burn Zombie Burn!
- Undertow

They're on EU's DUALSHOCK 3 support list.

I'm interviewing the head of the studio next week. Burn Zombie Burn! will be out first. I'm trying to get some more info on there games and I'll report back when I know a little more about the release schedule.

I had Burn Zombie Burn already. Didn't know about Undertow.

It's the greatest PSN/XBL downloadable title we've had this generation so far, IMO. Nothing tops it, and I own all the great ones.

TOTALLY tentative. TOTALLY. But yeah, that's actually based off of an Australian PSN Release Date list that I have. So obviously, dates can shuffle (read: wipEout HD). But most have been close.

Also, tanod, I don't think you do sizes here but I know people are running out of HDD space (esp. if you are a tool like me and only have 60 GB HDD). But if the demos are the same size as XBL, Madden Demo = 1.09 GB and Facebreaker demo = 954.56 MB

The OP says it'll be on for another 8 hours. From the time he put that there, I'm assuming that means 6pm. But be warned. The last sale, where PJR and I think CAC went on sale for $5 went off early in the day. I was expecting it to stop at 6pm, but it stopped at like 2pm. I remember b/c I bitched about it. Luckily, PJR only went back up to like $7 or $8. PEACE.

No trophies for booty (or for Fat Princess, as of yet, which is weird since it's 2009). But trophies for Crash Commando & Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic. They might add in trophies for Booty, but I think it's pretty far along in development.

PAIN DLC is not this week. But all of those things should hit at the same time. PAIN labs will be released with the Amusement Park but will be recurring free DLC from within the game including new assets from unreleased areas. Kinda looking forward to shooting into a racetrack full of bikers, TBH.

Damn, I overlooked that in the OP. It kind of blended in with all the other red text :p

And damn, looks like I'll miss out on PAIN for $5. Oh well, I'll be content with PJE and PJM (along with Geometry Wars 2) for now.

I wonder if Sony is preventing some devs from releasing trophy patches for older games. If SSHD didn't show it, trophies = sales for PSN games. At least at this point they do. A game like CAC or Skydiving might get a shot in the arm with a quick trophy patch. The amount of additional sales generated would easily pay for the extra labor. PEACE.

Why would Sony prevent them? It's easy; devs don't have pressure from Sony into patching their games, and it costs money to retroactively add stuff to older games, hence no incentive to patch them.

Sony isn't preventing anyone. It's just that adding trophies take time (for Uncharted, it took a month and all the devs did was implement the reward system in the game and switch it for Trophies, which sounds simple but it ain't). Not alot of devs want to sidequest from making and finishing the current game to adding something to what's already out for free.

Oh and the PEACE is getting on my nerves :p


PEACE.

I think trophies involve a lot more work than people think. Digital Extremes talked about how they had to do some tweaking in the programming for Bioshock because whenever the notice came up for earning a trophy, it would cause slowdown in the game. So it's not just a matter of coming up with a list of trophies and tacking them on to the game.

But I agree, trophies equals sales.

I actually still want the PSN demo to try it out and make sure the controls are fine for myself (even though I could have tried the 360 demo last week). Doesn't hurt to sample. If I like it and end up buying it, that's two great games this week along with the Facebreaker demo. Two great weeks of content in a row is pretty nice.

Wouldn't it be sweet it PixelJunk Racers added trophy support (as well as PixelJunk Monsters). Then those guys would have it figured out. Sales++;

Yeah, there really should be. One of the huge advantages of XBLA over the Playstation Store is just that.

I don't know of any demo for 1942: Joint Strike. But that'd be cool - I guess - to get one.
Is this based simply on the fact that Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 got a demo a week later, also from Capcom? Or is there any other reason you think we're getting this?

Also, is it weird I'm looking forward to the LEGO: Indiana Jones - Original Adventures demo? Not my kind of game, but will be a nice change of pace.

I never bought PixelJunk Racers, but I did play the demo. It was bad. IN fact, Dylan Cuthbert, President & CEO of Q-Games, said that the demo was bad. He learned from his mistakes and said that they'd select better content for future demos (apparently they have judging by PJE demo).

Also, your friend is probably going to have to wait for that add-on.

I thought we were supposed to get it last week actually but it never came to pass. Seemed logical we'd get it this week just like with Commando. I really don't see why XBLA would get the demo and not PSN. That's just me thinking logically though when gaming is hardly logical at all.
