And another week goes by without Sony learning anything about how the lack of being able to update a listing of items for sale at a set time each week shows a complete lack of time and resource management skills.

By doing so the staff involved negatively impacts the perceived professionalism of all involved with Sony’s Playstation internet-based planning and products.

Please terminate the employment of the employees that have acting in this irresponsible manner over the past 3+ years.

Seriously.

PS3 Legacy: 0

PS1 Legacy: 4

Another improvement though I wish it were spread around more.

Puzzle Fighter should be $5 permenantly not just for a sale. Its pushing 3 years old… geez. Great game though, I bought it Day 1 and all that.

Still no Hyperballoid HD DLC? Europe has had it for 2 months if not longer. :(

PAIN Pinball DLC looks to me my lone download for the week. Hope its as good as I always imagined it would be. :D

Agreed Rakis,
in nearly any other company, this would be cause for dismissal. Most jobs do not give you three years of chances to, well, do the job right.

It is just plain sad how Sony treats it’s customers. :(

Always wanted Critter crunch, but I’m cheap. PSN+ is a great thing for me lol

I wanna know is this the 2nd month update for PSN+? Or just another weekly stuff? This seems small for the 2nd month unless you’re splitting them up by the weeks

You, Sony, should learn and take a page out of M$ and Ninty’s playbooks on how to do a timely update! Really, you should ask them for their help or feedback on this matter.

Otherwise, as a Playstation owner, I am truly shamed and saddened to see that EU Blog replies to comments more than you do with us. If you truly want to keep this Blog going- please learn to know your place and do the right thing or DO NOT BOTHER TO BLOG AT ALL! TRULY.

Dear Playstation,

If you keep releases old games for PS Plus member, I wont buy games any more! I had Critter Crunch when it 1st came out (I am loyal), now it’s time for you guys to turn that around! make us choose what game we can DL for FREE! This is NOT FAIR! So far about 90% of the games you guys are giving away for “FREE’ are games I have already have (bought). This needs to change or I will not buy any more PSN games when they release!!

Im happy about the PS Plus content…But m disapointed with no new games.

Where is Castle Crashers, Deadliest Warrior: The Game, and Blacklight Tango Down.

Alot of people have been waiting for awhile for these games now, And what is going on with Castle Crashers? The Behemoth have stated they submitted it to Sony in June I believe, It’s been over a month and no new’s on its release.

So far, I’ve already owned every game given for free on psn+.

If it’s one thing Sony has taught me over the past couple years with Qore and now psn+, its DONT BUY GAMES because i’ll be offered them for free eventually.

Critter Crunch… really? And you already gave out syphon filter free with qore a while back. I’m really starting to regret this subscription, that is until they start adding more features to it because the free stuff just isn’t doing it for me.


45

+ Barnolde on July 27th, 2010 at 5:06 pm said:

Wow, only $10 for Section 8? TimeGate Studios must really want to move it. I guess the two $15 sales weren’t enough. Well I think I’ll finally bite.

and damn EA is vicious with their DLC.


46

+ BigBangBear on July 27th, 2010 at 5:06 pm said:

I like the PS+ update. Was interested in trying out Syphon Filter and I have never played any of the Crash Bandicoot games.

Have to agree with others that I would like to see a consistent time that the updates are posted, but it isn’t the end of the world either as long as they stay on Tuesdays.


47

+ ProjectInfiniti on July 27th, 2010 at 5:06 pm said:

Finally…. a comment that is first that I HIGHLY agree with.

Guaranteed I could run these updates much better than ANYONE controlling this now. You guys need to start getting ready a day or two early at least instead of waiting until the last minute scrambling around trying to figure what goes up during each update.

I’m surprised the head of you guys are letting you get away with this. I would’ve been fired you people!

Great update. o;

@1; Sony can’t change how the world rotates. Get over it or move. Living in PST, it always updates around the same time every week. A decent time as well. If you don’t like that, then sucks for you. Deal.
