Hey could you possibly clarify for those who had previously purchased the “Eye of Indra” episodes separately, how we now get the extra content? There was a rather dizzying post regarding this early. A follow-up would be great.

Thanks!

…Nice to see BlazBlue PSP show up a full three weeks after its release, but why only one PSOne game?

Really? Why not Alien Trilogy, Breath of Fire III, Chrono Cross, Star Wars Rebel Assault II, Ace Combat, Star Trek Invasion, Colony Wars, Spider-Man, or any of a dozen others?

+ krae_man on April 1st, 2010 at 4:26 pm said:

What happened to trying to update the store earlier?

Its an hour earlier then last week but that’s like showing up for work only 1/2 hour late instead of an hour late.

Its better, but still not acceptable.

Quit “Trying” and actually succeed already.

RE: AlabamaRollTide8

Read the back of the Modern Warfare 2 box for the PS3: notice it does NOT say anything about Add-On Content.

I noticed this when it was released.

RE Uncharted Skins from Motion Comics

The original post indicated it will likely be about a week before codes go out to those who bought the episodes individually previously. Probably to give time for all the transactions from the last minute to go through, so no one gets lost in the system.

Sweet mother of Segac…. $5 for a character that’s already in the game!?

No PJ Shooter demo?

Well…. at least there’s the Tik-Creat sale to soothe the pain.

+ ProjectInfiniti on April 1st, 2010 at 4:33 pm said:

@8 & 10
Modern Warfare 2 maps come out April 30th due to Microsoft paying for timed exclusivity. IDK why people are waiting to pay $15 for some crap maps when BFBC2 does it MUCH better, and for free.

Anyway, this update was ok. I’m so glad i’ve only transferred $20 to my account this week.

Ugh….nothing for me this week. I’ll let my mom know about the Mahjong Tales price cut.

A buddy of mine was gonna buy the MW2 DLC that is missing from this week, but 3.21 locked up his SLIM PS3. He’ll have to wait for his crappy replacement(refurb instead of new) before he decides whether or not he will ever buy a Sony product again. Losing months worth of gameplay because of a forced update to play online is unacceptable. Get your sh$# together guys.

And the MW2 maps are timed exclusive so wait 30 days than you guys can go from complaining about them not being out to how glitchy and over priced the maps are.
