I'm a long time critic of the Playstation Store. I dislike the lack of third party support, I dislike the "staggered release" strategy they've had so far, and I dislike the lack of PSone classics in North America. (and Europe, for my homies over there) But the last few weeks have been pretty cool. The MGS4 database is a snazzy and unique companion to the actual game, the updates to Stardust HD have transformed it into a whole new game, we FINALLY got another actual classic PSone classic in Rayman, and this Thursday we have Siren, which could be the best survival horror game in some time. Even Eurogamer loved it, and those guys are way anal. Also, we just recently got Elefunk, which has positive word of mouth, (and a five dollar price tag, which doesn't hurt) as well as getting 1942: Joint Strike this week as well.
Maybe they won't be able to maintain this momentum, maybe we'll see the next PSone classic in September, but right now, it's looking pretty good. Siren is basically one of my most anticipated games for this year as a whole, and I rarely say that about a digital download title.
