Hi Everyone –

For the first time on PlayStation Network, we have partnered with Sprint to bring you the PSN exclusive game, Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic, for FREE in the U.S. store. That’s right. The game is free to download this week. Check out the Sprint channel on PlayStation Store to access the game, free Sprint videos, wallpapers and an exclusive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Monsters XMB Theme.

Downloadable Games

Texas Cheat’em ($9.99)
It’s not whether you win or lose…it’s about how far you can bend the rules without getting caught. In Texas Cheat’em, that’s pretty darn far. Play casino-themed mini-games to activate one of 15 cheating abilities – then make your own luck. Turn a bad hand into a sure thing. Send your opponent’s Royal Flush right down the drain. Steal chips, fold for free, or know the community cards in advance. Cheat strangers out of their fortunes over PlayStation Network…before they do it to you. Remember: glory is forever, but broke is only funny when it happens to someone else.

Wow, way to screw over people that supported Rad Doll Kung Fu first week. You guys couldn’t have made a new game free for a week? This is [DELETED].

Actually – too bad Rag Doll Kung Foo doesn’t have PSN Multiplayer – would suddenly have a lot of people to compete against.

Download it. Its a lot of fun!


24

+ ROFLdrg on May 14th, 2009 at 1:50 pm said:

love the idea of the free game.

Would be cool to maybe offer refunds for anybody that bought it in the last week though… or announce it ahead of time.

+ FearMonkey on May 14th, 2009 at 1:50 pm said:

More PS1 games!!! I hope there’s more next week just in time for my birthday! *HINT HINT* :)

Woah free game, awesome!!! Kind of sour for those who just bought Rag Doll Kung Fu though… Glad I didn’t.

Keep those PSOne games coming!

Please remove Echochrome psp add-on from the PS3 add on section.. has bothered me for a while

+ jt_bombtrak on May 14th, 2009 at 1:51 pm said:

How to please some gamers: give them a free PSN game

How to disgruntle some other gamers: give them a free PSN game weeks AFTER its release and they have already bought it.

How to alleviate the situation: give gamers that already bought it credit in the PSN Store

How to make EVERYONE happy in the future: work these deals out ahead of time and make it free on day one.

Today is a GREAT example of why Sony is still the better company (fanboy is showing… oops!) First my day started out with a firmware update. Then the store updates with a GREAT and VAST amount of content. And to top it off, they are giving a game (Rag Doll Kung Fu)away for FREE!?!?! When have the competitors done that?! To everyone at Sony(especially you, Grace) for putting fourth a GREAT amount of support and content, i thank you VERY MUCH!! KEEP IT UP SONY!

If you guys can keep putting out updates like this, you will be making 90% of your customers very happy.

Just like last week, I have no interest in these PS One games, but keep rolling them out, cause I’m sure eventually you will put out something I want. (FFVII)

Great job for the second week in a row. Please, PLEASE keep it up.

@43

That’s like saying you won’t buy games on day one because they drop in price when they hit Greatest Hits.

You want it one day one, you pay premium. Nothing wrong with that at all.
