PS3 Legacy – 1

PS1 Legacy – 1

Well, that’s okay but still pretty slim pickings.

Still no Hyperballoid HD dlc.

Valkyria demo makes this week salvagable.

Time to download an awesome co-op game!

Good update, but…………

Why can’t the store update the same time every week? Why? How hard is it? It is digital!! I don’t care if it’s every Tuesday at 9 PST! As long as it is ( PST every Tuesday from here on out I will be fine with that! I hate how we never know when the dam store updates! Come on Sony! Make it an effort to be consistent with the time the store updates! Honestly how hard is that? I know if I want to go to Best Buy tomorrow the store opens at 10! Why can’t the store be like every other retail store?

Needs more psp support. VC2 demo is awesome though.

24 ratings for the full Scott Pilgrim game… right. The ratings system is a joke. Fix it Sony!

    Correct, existing owners of PJ Racers get 2nd Lap for free. You can download the new file from PlayStation Store.

When can we expect the Scott Pilgrim pre-order codes to start working? If anything, we should get early access, not delayed >_<

Horrible update for PSN+ subscribers.
Could care less about that game trial.
Only thing we get is Aero Racers and some theme.
Now to wait 2 weeks for hopefully something much better…


27

+ phinnv8 on August 10th, 2010 at 3:15 pm said:

I’ll definitely check out the Scott Pilgrim demo and see if I like it.

Now that that’s out I hope we can here something about the Castle Crashers vaporware that came out 2 yeasr ago for 360 and was announced 1 year ago for PS3.


28

+ stlthriot on August 10th, 2010 at 3:15 pm said:

Great demos! Just wish the PSN+ content was better especially for only being every 2 weeks now.
And, why is the Wipeout HD Fury expansion $7.99 when usually things are half off? ;)

Man I’m glad I only invested in the three month PS+ plan, if there was actual worthwhile content (ie. Actual features other than auto-download ) I might actually be interested using it. As it stands at the moment, I’m simply throwing money down the drain.

where is the info on castle crasher sony what a FAIL


33

+ Edd on August 10th, 2010 at 3:16 pm said:

The playstation plus stuff was absolutely lame. WE DON’T WANT MINIS, you guys need to step it up with your PS+ service, updates like this make it seem like a joke, seriously.

Will try that VCII demo but for the psp thats all there is unless you enjoy handheld football. Luckily just one more week until Ys Seven so ill save my cash until then.

Hey Grace, do you think that we could get an update on various Square Enix classics that have yet to *ahem* grace the US PS Store? Xenogears? Vagrant Story? I mean, I know Xenogears is still JP only, but Vagrant Story has made it to SCEE…


37

+ KingDubin on August 10th, 2010 at 3:18 pm said:

To all the People moaning about PS+ Content:

IT’S EARLY IN ITS LIFE CYCLE!!!! GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!! I BET YOU ANYTHING THAT IN THE EARLY DAYS OF XBOX LIVE ON XBOX 1, IT HAD THE EXACT SAME GROWNING PAINS!!!!! GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSES AND SHUT THE HELL UP, YOU FRICKIN’ CRYBABIES!!!!!

That’s all I have to say.

+ NeoHumpty on August 10th, 2010 at 3:18 pm said:

Yeah. I’m officially regretting + now. I thought this week was supposed to be the big update for us that pay extra????

Scott Pilgrim game – was sold on this at E3.
Good update this week, that’s my evening sorted out for a while.

+ megalodonshark on August 10th, 2010 at 3:18 pm said:

well atleast you remembered your psone classics people. i am sure many people would agree with me that we still need the likes of vagrant story, not to mention remaining green label greatest hits games of which you have barely tapped into that amount of games that would assuredly sell. let us also not forget games like suikoden II since you gave us suikoden well over 18 months ago. in honesty we should get suikoden II simply because it was released as a psp game with suikoden in japan(not sure about a pal release though), so why would it not make sense to release the most sought after cult classic game from the olden days?
and grace i think we would all love a comment about the future of psone classics for the future… please.
thank you in advance.

im curious tho… ok Qore is $19.99 for renewal and i have Qore from Day One and last year i paid $19.99 to resubscribe and this year when PSN+ came out i jumped on it.

My thing is do i get my $5 plus applicable tax back or do Sony just keep that?


42

+ Edd on August 10th, 2010 at 3:18 pm said:

Another hint, unless a game trial is for a game that’s a recent release or better yet, for a game that’s not out yet, don’t even release it. We want FREE DLC for games we actually play and FREE games not free minis and 1 and 2 dollar discounts on everything else. This is a freaking insult.


43

+ NeoHumpty on August 10th, 2010 at 3:19 pm said:

FU, KingDubin. I paid, and I can moan all I want.

You guys need to fix the PS3 web browser so we can sign into the blog. It worked before but not now. Your system cant use your website. The sign-in id and password part wont show.

+ iTofuMan on August 10th, 2010 at 3:20 pm said:

eh i know people were wanting CTR and ill admit its a good game, but i really didnt like it.

Still kind of a bad update on the psp side ya we got VC2 demo which i might download, but can we see some older psp game people like me who have psp go have been waiting to play good games like crisis core,naruto, Phantasy star portable, yugioh, etc and its been almost a year since the go released its kinda bad to see that you are release games so slowly since the psn had been out for years and you havent even gotten good classic games (both psp and ps1)


46

+ DarkHowl on August 10th, 2010 at 3:20 pm said:

Anyone else notice that Section 8 is on another “sale” for about the 4th week?
I understand keeping sales up for people that couldn’t get the money that week (Me being one of them). But increasing the price by $5 every week? Come on. =/

+ Anddo on August 10th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

It’s all about Scott Pilgrim and VC2.. Not a PS+ member so I’ll wait on 2nd Lap :)

+ mywhitenoise on August 10th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

Dude…Playstation Plus sucks! This is it, I’m finally making the decision NOT to subscribe. I can buy so much more and better DLC when I want it (instead of paying $50, plus the discounted price). Nothing but a coupon club.


49

+ The1stMJC on August 10th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

oh god looks like we have something to replace the I Want Final Fantasy complainers thanks to PlayStation Plus. But Sony actually deserves these complaints since plus truly is a waste.

+ Edd on August 10th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

YOU KNOW WHAT!? It doesn’t matter if it’s early in it’s life cycle, if they don’t have compelling content to release they shouldn’t have launched the PS+ service yet, simple as that. They’re getting 50 bucks a year and we get free MINIS!? That’s ASININE! They choose the content that gets released, they could release better stuff, this is a slap in the face.
