what is this crap?
a terrible movie game and a crappy demo?
wow Sony keep up the suck

More Street Fighter avatars? WHY!? How about Explodemon avatars (it’s coming out this year), or some White Knight Chronicles avatars? Maybe even some Killzone 3 avatars (I felt the need to put this obvious one here as we still don’t have God of War 3 avatars). There are so many games to get avatars from yet we still have a very small collection and that collection mainly consists of Street Fighter and that is lame.

It may be time consuming to make a dynamic theme but it should be very easy to put a bunch of avatars up on the PSN Store from different games. Seeing as how the PSN Store updates only once a week there should be around 30 different avatars a week.

Finally get to play the DAO DLC. Been looking forward to this DLC for like 3 weeks now.

Must say though i feel so bad for all you PSN+ people. My god have you guys been getting bad stuff. Im really glad I held off on that leap. There still would have been nothing i wanted at all from PSN+, and that’s not including the stuff I had already bought and paid for before that.

decent update for the regular store and poor one for plus users. If you are going bi-weekly the least you could do is make it worth the wait.

Very interesting update, and lots to keep me entertained until next week’s update!

And thank you for updating at a more reasonable time for us folks living in the east!

@46… That movie game is actually pretty good. There’s a reason why so many people are talking about it.

Which demo is crap? VC2 or Mafia 2? VC is far from crap, it may not be your cup of tea, but don’t hate.

Got a question about PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap: Is it COMPLETELY free for us Racers 1 & PS+ members or is it ours until our subscription expires, in which we’d have to pay to unlock should we not re-subscribe (not saying that I would break my subscription)?

Thanks for any answers! :D

+ marlyt on August 10th, 2010 at 3:27 pm said:

waint until the game flood of late summer-winter 2010. Plus will get better because there will be greter need to compete, I think. Good update. Let the whining begin!!!


64

+ anti_sock on August 10th, 2010 at 3:28 pm said:

the only people excited for SP are people who have a terrible taste in games.
and a demo hardly makes this a worthwhile update


65

+ Cacklen on August 10th, 2010 at 3:28 pm said:

I asked a few weeks ago and didn’t get a reply nor was I able to find any information online either. Once again can anyone please tell me if there is any plans to bring any of the following games to the PSN

Legend of Dragoon
Tales of Destiny
Suikoden 2
Xenogears.
Please any information would be greatly appericated.

+ Edd on August 10th, 2010 at 3:35 pm said:

I’ve been a big supporter of sony and I still am, overall the ps3 and psn is awesome but when you offer a “premium service” you need to treat it as such and actually give us premium content THAT WE PAY FOR. PS+ is not living up to the quality that the Playstation brand is known for.


78

+ SuperTiso on August 10th, 2010 at 3:35 pm said:

PSN, could you make up your mind about Section 8 for once? Could you please not insult your consumer base more with these pricing shenanigans? One week it’s $9.99, the next it’s $14.99, now it’s $24.99? This is consecutive 3 weeks straight now.

+ MrBeatdown on August 10th, 2010 at 3:40 pm said:

Is the PS Plus update supposed to be a joke?

Where are the avatars, themes, and most importantly the add-on content that I’m paying $50 a year for? Seriously, it’s been two weeks since the first update for the month, and now I have to wait two MORE weeks to get my game add-on? That’s just ridiculous! I should not have to wait FOUR WEEKS to get the content I’m supposed to get each month. The first add-on was available at the end of June. That was six weeks ago! Two more on top of that is acceptable to you people? Give me the content I payed for, or at least get your act together and tell me what and when I’m getting it.

And a trial for a year old game that already has a demo, and only one theme (that isn’t even dynamic, and ZERO avatars for the month is pathetic.

Another week to stare at empty folders with the names NeoGeo and PCEngine on them on my PSP. One would have thought that when releasing a FW upgrade that included these folders on the PSP, games would have been made available too. Wishful thinking I suppose.

In any event, dear Sony – don’t keep us waiting for years before a NeoGeo or PCEngine game comes out. Or, put another way, I’d like to be able to play one before I die :)

So let me get this straight. Playstation Plus content moves from once a week to once every two weeks, and we don’t receive any free content other than a theme and a mini?!

Wow… just wow. I’m really starting to feel ripped off.

When this service launched, there were promises of free content. Free “full-length” games, PSone classics, minis, and more.

Over the past four weeks, we have gotten nothing for free other than cheap themes, avatars, Syphon Filter, and two minis.

Is this what I spent my $50 on?!

Lies… we subscribe to the lies (and service), Sony makes a profit on us suckers, and then they start serving us garbage.
