I already have Castle Crashers on the 360… Nothing all that compelling once again for my PSP Go… And to top it off, I just got word that the new Kingdom Hearts is UMD only. You can say that I am quite miffed at you guys at the moment. Great job with the whole Go campaign. Last time I’ll be an early adopter of any of your future gaming consoles.

Wow, PSN + Members complain a lot, they`re getting really annoying. They expect too much. Aside from a free avatar here and a free PS1 game there, it`s all gonna be discounts and an early beta every now and then. Didn`t they read up on it before signing up for it? Or did they throw money at Sony the moment they saw mention of a free PS1 game and stop reading? Seriously, if they don`t like what the service REALLY gives then they should just shut up and cancel their subscription instead of complaining on here.

Aside from that, great update. Downloading the demo for castle Crashers now. I have to wonder though why the blog doesn`t get updated until 12am my time now, it`s very inconvenient for me, not to mention ridiculously late. What`s going on? The blog used to update early in the afternoon, at normal hours. Did you hire vampires to do it or something?

What are these lame updates for psp?!

Theme Hospital? Japanese psn has Dead Or Alive, Ergheiz, Fatal Fury Wild Ambition and Real Bout, for example!
And there are other great games like Dodonpachi… Why don’t you sell japanese games in our us psn, the language doesn’t matter?

Ah and why can’t poor psp go players play with a naruto game, or outrun 2006?

When will PS+ get some good content? Just look at Europe’s content for PS+ they will be getting a lot more tomorrow than we ever got in terms of GOOD PS+ content. They even got a free retail game. All Americans get from PS+ is scraps (basically stuff nobody would want to buy). Also, there should be a lot more avatars on the store and stop filling it with nothing but Crapcom’s content. I’ll NEVER buy anything from that company.

@147 (Feral_Dragon)

You’re complaining about PS+ subscribers as if it is our own fault for expecting too much or misunderstanding what was promised, yet you call it by the wrong name (it’s PS+, not PSN+), criticize us for expecting more than “an avatar here and a PSN game here”, even though that is only a fraction of what we were promised and we haven’t received new avatars in seven weeks. The word “irony” comes to mind.

Fact is, in the PS+ FAQ on this blog, Sony wrote…

“Each month there will be dynamic themes, premium avatars and premium game elements/add-ons for you to download and many will be exclusive to PlayStation Plus members only.”

Total # of dynamic themes for month 2: 0
Total # of avatars for month 2: 0
Total # of add-ons for month 2: 0
Total # of dynamic themes for month 3 so far: 0
Total # of avatars for month 3 so far: 0
Total # of add-ons for month 3 so far: 0

Sony promised us one thing (three actually), took our $20 or $50, and then failed to deliver the content they clearly promised and we paid for. Even worse, they have repeatedly failed to acknowledge this.

PS+ owners have every right to complain.

Too bad it’ll be lacking a multiplayer mode.

Castle Crashers is also very good. Bought it and played with my friends. A must have, like Fat Princess.

Another week and no response from Sony in their blog. Pathetic! Pathetic! Pathetic! It’s called “customer service”, look it up. So, Sony has screwed PSPGo users by not pressuring Square-Enix to release Kingdom Hearts on the PSN. I will never buy another system from this wretched company. I know everyone will say, “But it isn’t Sony’s fault”. Really? Too bad they can’t do anything like…. prevent Square from releasing Kingdom Hearts on any PSP. And what makes me more angry is that Square has made a LOT of money selling their old Final Fantasy games on the PSN, but refuse to sell War of Lions (coming to Iphone but not PSPGo), Crisis Core, and now Kingdom Hearts. And Sony just refuses to get involved to help their customers.

I have a new slogan for the PSPGO – It only does nothing.

Glad about vanquish and Castle Crashers, but sadly thats where it ends. Having to wait intill an undisclosed time to get the store updated and then to realize theyre just putting PS+ stuff on sale again. IMO PSPGo users(suchas myself) and PS+ users(again myself) are always getting the short end of the stick.

@ 159 El_hoardo

I`m not the only one who`s called it PSN+…

Anyway, what I`m saying is, you should have known better if you`re on the NA server. They promise us the world but, like someone else above put it, “gives us the scraps” instead. “Plus” is worth your money on every other server BUT NA.

I wish they`d gave everyone equal content on all servers, or at least stop leaving NA out.

Not surprised that they are now adding monthly charges to MAG. This is what I thought would be a part of this game from the beginning. Character slots are just the beginning, they will eventually will add monthly charges to use DLC map packs (free or that you bought) as well on this and other games. We saw this BS on White Knight Chronicles as well. I’m sure that LBP2 will have this as well to access certain items. I can see Gran Turismo 5 having renting/leasing agreements to drive certain cars in the game. That way it the real driving simulator will get as real as it gets.
