More Patapon is good but I hope they fix all the little problems people had with it.

While I loved Patapon for about the first half of the missions, all the grinding to afford better patapons got old and I never finished it. I hope the sequel has a little more variety.

No online multiplayer makes co-op useless.

I just started playing Patapon about a week ago. I have played about 5 hours of it and I love it. The grinding doesn't bother me. I never got around to LocoRoco but i plan on playing it.

This news is very exciting too me because i am very interested in both games.

I am excited about this. Somehow playing a god is quite satisfying.

Definitely looking forward to Patapon 2. Hope there's a way to import original saves. I beat the game last week and am currently collecting mithril to make ultimate weapons. I might have done more grinding than I needed mid-game (completely missed the fact that I could make better units so wasted a ton of ka-ching and time trying to build up base level ones), but never had trouble keeping the beat so it was totally engrossing.

i love the little patapons, the sounds, the cute little battle cries, but man, it's freaking anal! i just can't beat the dessert area... i mean come on, you need to be in the Fever mode to do the rain dance, it's just plain mean... i mean, it's like asking average Joe to play Fur Elise without making a single mistake. Pata pata pata pon, pata pata pata pon (fading away).

There's a rumor that what will be inside the Patapon 2 package in retail stores will be a voucher to download it off of PSN for $20 while the digital version of the game will be just $15 to download it straight from the PS Store. Considering SCEA's past execution on simultaneous PSN/Retail releases, I see no reason to believe it until SCEA announces it themselves.

If you want it on UMD you can buy the European or Jp versions, if this turns out to be true.

I'm not the type to import. $15 isn't bad at all though... cheaper than the original.

I hope this does not bode well, and I'm sure Gamestop feels the same way :P

Having an actual copy of the game is nice and also allows for re-sale value. Going download only kills the ability for us to re-sell our copy and make up for some of the loss, and I hope if indeed all games go download only that Sony offers a better memory stick solution and has demos for EVERY game, because I do not want to end up downloading a game only to hate it and be SOL.

Out of curiosity how big will this file be? Can you re-download it if you delete it? I only have a 4 gig. Bleh. Can you transfer the PSP games to the PS3 hard drive?

It's just that simple.
