Good going Sony. When I’m signed into my Canadian PSN account that ticker thing is forever pimping Ragdoll Kung Fu being free even though its not for me.

Did it ever occur to you to give Playstation Canada a heads up you were doing this and give them an opportunity to secure a Canadian sponsor?

Who am I kidding, Sony Computer Entertainment’s various divisions are incapable of working together to achieve a common goal. No way you even inquired about extending this offer to Canada.

@ 348 (i got nothing against you)

wana give me 9.99 $??

u know whats fuuny?? when i buy new games i get a lot of message asking me for my psn id n password…

i simply tell them to Fcuk off… i thought i was doing sony a favor by not sharing games…

Keep pretending the constant valid criticism of your rediculious way of doing business doesn’t exist Sony.

Canadian Playstation owners: The group of people SCEA continues to pretend doesn’t exist.

Hell, The Canadian branch of SCEA pretends Canada doesn’t exist. Playstation.ca still hasn’t been updated at all in 2009.

Kren420 said:

May 14th, 6:30 pm

I am pretty disapointed in the lack of Canadian support here………

WindedHero said:

May 14th, 6:32 pm

This is crap. I bought the game the week it came out and other people are getting it free?

Is Sony trying to tell us to hold onto our money?

gettinmoney662 said:

May 14th, 6:34 pm

Hey Canadians, the promotion is done by a U.S. company. Why would a U.S. company care about running promotions in another country?

you just made my day, playstation network. [DELETED] xbox, we get free games!

@Jeff
THIS IS BS JEFF I PAID 10 DOLLARS FOR RAG DOLL KUNG FU NOT EVEN A MONTH AGO!!! AND SONY PULLS THIS NONSENSE!! SONY OWES ME MONEY THIS IS A MONTH AFTER RELEASE OF THE DAMN GAME!!! THAT IS NOT RIGHT!!! I AM VERY CLOSE TO SWEARING OFF PSN EXCLUSIVES OVER THIS ALONE!!!

keep the ps1 classics coming and you have our wallets :D

good job Sony

CANADIANS! GET A US ACCOUNT FOR FREE! ITS REALLY SIMPLE

Vash_Nightmare said:

May 14th, 6:47 pm

why are these people whining about the free game. so what you paid 10 dollars for it. you wanted the game that is why you paid the money for it. if you didnt think the game was worth 10 dollars why did you purchase it in the first place.

no body owe nothing to you and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Slayer612 said:

May 14th, 6:47 pm

Why does everyone feel everything is so EASY?

To get a sponsor isn’t easy or to get partnered with someone isn’t easy. It takes time. They just do not call each other up and say, “Hey Sprint, you wanna partner up and give a free game?”. It takes time and meetings.

No one knows what it is like until they do it themselves.

DJnal05 said:

May 14th, 6:55 pm

Vash_Nightmare…

u cant talk smack… just bcoz u got it free…

everyone has the right to protest…

i wonder how many game u bought from psn??

SoYoung said:

May 14th, 6:59 pm

Some people dont understand something. this kind of promotion is like saying “we dont care about people who supporting us, let us give away free gift for people who complain about no demos every week and buy nothing”

I have many PSN games, many were giving away in the past with Qore. I can live with it, but a NEW game that I pay 10$ like one month ago and it is FREE now is unacceptable for people who actually BUY things on the PSN.

When Microsoft give away Undertow on XBLA they gives a credits for those who have the game, Sony should do this as well because right now I feel riped and cheated as a supported costumer and I will think twice before I wull buy another PSN game.

Thank you, Sprint :)

@363
for your information I purchased the game day one.
and I lost count of how many games I purchased on PSN, but they are a lot buddy.

if people get things for free let them enjoy it , first thing I did when I read this post is tell all my friends to go and get it.

poohed333 said:

What ever happened with the MIA Street Fighter IV costume pack from last week? Has anyone figured out what happened to it?

Vash_Nightmare said:

May 14th, 7:15 pm

@364
I see your point.
I agree I’d be pissed if this happen frequently.
but as long as it is a one time special promotion thingy, it is alright you shouldn’t feel too bad about it.

now if only Sony gives frequent buyers free $50 wallet credits … :D :D that would be a nice gift to supporters like you and me.

Erdie said:

May 14th, 7:15 pm

Wow, I just read a few of the comments here. I get the feeling some of you could win 50 billion dollars only to complain about having to pay the tax on it. Unbelievable. Grow up.

musiq720 said:

May 14th, 7:18 pm

This free Rag Doll Kung Fu Download is [DELETED] I’m tired of paying for something and then the next week it’s either free or at a reduced price because of some “promotion”. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on items from the psn store, and it feels like a slap in the face after I’ve just spent the hard earned money on it and then everone else gets it for free. Sure it seems nice to the people who get a free game and then can spend 10 bucks on another game, but come on Sony, give something to the people who every week give you there money while people who don’t give you any cash get a free gift.

Nice update! Will be buying Zen Pinball. Thanks for the free game Sprint! It’s also great to see more ps titles.

Tjoeb123 said:

May 14th, 7:30 pm

I don’t see where the free game is located…unless it’s on PS3 only? (if that’s the case, then I guess I can’t play it…)

No online. No thanks.

Neville718 said:

May 14th, 7:45 pm

Thanks for the response Grace Chen… Sorry to say, but i’m not buying a single thing in the ps store. i’ll just wait until its free.
And thanks a lot sprint… ya’ll slap me in the face on my phone bill & miss out on promos

Dark_Vincent said:

May 14th, 7:55 pm

KOF99! Thank you PSN!!!

And thanks for Rag Doll too. Don’t worry about the haters. I’ve paid premium prices just to see the game go discounted some time after, and never felt “cheated” over it. It’s 5 dollars people ffs!

Neat promo by Sprint. I won’t purchase PSN games until a few months have passed from here on out.

JohnGalt said:

May 14th, 8:07 pm

Glad to see some additional PS1 games are available but the UK store has had many more available for some time. Please make some more games available to the US since they are already setup for the UK.

=) n now i am happy…

StealthCorazon said:

May 14th, 8:30 pm

I understand everyone’s frustration and I’d probably be upset too, or honestly I don’t think I would really care…

in fact i wasn’t gonna drop 10 bucks for rag doll just cuz it didn’t really interest me…i rather save my money for bigger games…but since its free…i guess i’ll DL it…and if it sucks..well…i won’t care…all in all..i was never gonna spend money on rag doll..which is probably gonna be the majority of the people who will DL it….

for those who spent the money…i feel ya…but maybe it’ll happen again when you guys get something free and i paid for it…who knows….

DJnal05 said:

And Canada get shafted, once again..

Edd said:

May 14th, 9:14 pm

well we know you can’t give refunds but maybe a free game voucher? you know it’s pretty low to do that to people all it does is make me apprehensive to buy any games because they might become free in the near future, it’s really not fair at all.

SuperSijy said:

May 14th, 9:20 pm

Love the free game, even if I would probably never have gotten it without Sprint’s support, but this could have been done better in order to not piss off people who already bought it.

Like maybe a free game(10$ or less) of your choosing and then have more ads for sprint as you goto checkout (ie adding funds will have a big sign saying sprint is buying you the game of your choice or something).

Making everyone happy and keeping first week’s sales are good ideas. Hopefully some other company will do a promo like that(cause free games are great)!

“Some people dont understand something. this kind of promotion is like saying “we dont care about people who supporting us, let us give away free gift for people who complain about no demos every week and buy nothing”

Exactly, never have I complained about anything on this blog. Everyone who is complaining about us complaining are the same ones that b*tch about getting a demo a week late or some crap like that. We BUY actual PSN games, not just demos.

I’m just very disappointed that sony always let there core gamers like myself out to dry . They would rather give a bot a free game to have them jump on board than do anything for there establish gamers. They know there marketing blows and its word of mouth from people like myself that makes people buy the ps3 . heck i got 10 people to buy the ps3 .

business is business
