@ Ar4chNova89:

Red Faction Battlegrounds IS NOT FREE for PS PLUS USERS!

It is $9.99 for both standard or PS+ users of the PS3….

It is FREE however… IF you preorder the Red Faction Armegeddon that launches 5/31 in the USA through GameStop and one other place, I think maybe Best Buy. All you have to do is go slap $5 on it to hold the game at any Gamestop store (you can always change your mind and get a refund later or switch the $5 to another game) and Gamestop gives you a receipt with a code to download the Battlegrounds game for FREE.

It’s quite a fun little game actually, from what I’ve played of it so far!

– Hope that helps.

WHOA, it was stated through multiple resources that Sonic 2; Streets of Rage 2; Altered Beast and Golden Axe II, were ALL supposed to have online CO-OP. i booted up Sonic 2 just now and see Local CO-OP, Local VS and Online Versus, were we misinformed on this situation????? I was really hoping to play with my friend in Sonic 2, and Streets of Rage 2 is BLEEDING to have online co-op. Can someone at sony clarify that possibly the online co-op has bugs or is still having kinks worked out and it IS coming in a post patch????

I’ll add to the chorus of people asking about Red Faction: Battlegrounds being free for PS+ users. In fact, I even had an email from Sony which mentioned it.
Was quite looking forward to it, too. Would have been a nice taster for the upcoming Red Faction game and movie (although, given the movie is being made by ‘SyFy’, I’m certain it’ll be utter rubbish!)

pretty dull update.. but then again i still got my hands full with plenty of games that came out recently..

i thought battlegrounds was gonna be free to plus ppl.. so much for that..

guess people are still crying about having to pay $50 for plus.. i’ve gotten well over $50 worth of games in the first 6 months so it goes a long way..

Dang looks like nothing for me this week. not even the free things on Ps+ look worth it.

I dont see why they suddenly just stop trying to get old psp games out on the psn. do you guys just not contract the devs anymore? i understand all the hard times it may bring but try to at least get some of the games us gamers want. i mean i have yet to see any decent games get uploaded on the psn. No Crisis Core, or the first Phantasy Star portable game. it just seems fishy why Square Enix can release Dissidia, or even their Ps1 classic, but leave out great games like Crisis Core or the psp version of Tactics (which by far is the best version), or Sega releasing the second Phantasy Star game, but not the first.

I know not every update can be the best, but i think the last decent update for the psp was when they had the sale on Monster Hunter and that was last year.

Nothing of interest for me this week. Oh well, guess it gives some time to work on my backlogged games, before starting new ones.

Sad to see that PS Rewards got canned. Had alot of friends that were looking forward to it going public.

Spring Fever is kinda weak so far, this year.

Last year we had some great game selections, that great PixelJunk sale, a buggy but valiant effort at a PS Home incentive program… I mean.

I know they can’t all be winners, but this one like .. barely tried.

From the skimpy PS Store update, to Anon walking all over Sony, this hasn’t been a good week for PSN in general. At least Sonic 2 is free for us PS+ subscribers, but I’m weary about even playing it, seeing as how Sonic 1 was a sloppy port of the XBLA version. Sega FTL.

What’s with all the procrastination this gen, Sony? Why hold back on features and content you know everyone wants? At this rate, we’ll still barely have any notable PS Classics until around the time the PS4 is prepping for launch…

I also got an email saying I was getting Red Faction: Battlegrounds free today.. I think it actually came through my PSN account. Can somebody that works the blog get their crap together and clarify this for people please.

Downloading Stardrone right now. I hope it’s good cause I hate when games don’t have demos the same week. Sony needs to fix this. Sonic 2 is ok. Not excited for that. May pick up Lara Croft and Age of Booty for the cheaper prices but not sure yet.

GRACE please answer this…

PSU.com has an article about the new KZ map pack releasing next week.
It says the map pack will be free for PSN Plus members for the first month of release.
Does that mean it’s free lifetime or just the duration of the membership?
I’m asking cause that’s what usually happens with PSN Plus members.

Dont’ know if people saw the announcement today, or if they really care, but Rockband 3 (just the game) has gone done in price to $19.99.

And that’s even in Canada; I just picked it up at Best Buy.

so is there a reason that the PSP PSN main page is still showing over month old content?

wasn’t the Red Faction game suppose to be included for PS+ people. Also, do we get the Killzone map pack for free like the EU PS+ subscribers?

You really spoiled us with those good updates, lol.
Hope next week is better.
Thanks for the free games…I got Comet Crash for free instead of the mini listed, was that supposed to be?

Yay, more Sonic (said with the joy of watching the grass grow). Least it’s a “bonus” game although free isn’t enough to get me to download that visual graphical nightmare. At least have it updated to HD graphics. Two subpar PSN games for + this month. Two months in a row, I got garbage after seeing Stacking offered, which is what triggered my interest in PS+. On board too late it seems, and not one thing worth renewing my membership to keep yet. :( Don’t get me wrong, the additional sale savings make it worth it, but, just like I suspected, because I’m a + member, I’m in the store more….translating to downloading/$$ more. No membership would greatly slow me down, and frankly, would allow me to play the games I already have. :) So we’ll see what happens. Sony has 13 more months to make it up. :D

+ MarcusRaven on April 5th, 2011 at 6:21 pm said:

Wait, the FIRST add-on for Stacking? Does this indirectly confirm MORE? Can’t wait to play the Hobo King pack though. Gotta finish the main story first. Long live Tim Schafer!

As for the sales……

Hamsterball shall be downloaded. Always popped quarters into marble madness, and for $3.99, a good “gift” for my son for a great week of school. Yeah, its for me too. :D Maybe the SpongeBob theme for him, if it’s any good. Oh, and Angry Birds.

Been waiting on Age of Booty to be $5 since I saw it awhile ago. And, last I saw, all their map add ons were free. Win-win.

Other than that, nothing that on my ‘watch list’ is on sale. :( Though I may just pull the trigger on one of them (which means it’ll be on sale next week, lol) So many games since Xmas though (30+), I need to slow down so I can actually play! :D

Oh, btw, the preview for Uno hasn’t worked at anytime I’ve tried. Speaking of previews, all your PS3 games should have them. Makes purchasing said game a much easier decision….I generally won’t buy one without seeing it (and does not mean playing a demo instead). Show the goods to sell them! :)

I’m a Plus member, so I took Sonic 2, Duael Invaders, Qore and I purchased Hamsterball, I will still be waiting on StarDrone even though it’s only $4. I was wondering if Red Faction Battlegrounds was going to be free since I saw some articles on that subject, turns out it’s not, it was okay but I’m not paying for it – if I get it, it will be by pre-ordering Red Faction Armageddon. So, I also downloaded the Battlegrounds demo and took the Rush’n Attack demo for some reason, the game sucks. And finally, even though I have Stacking, I will not be taking the dlc, game was not for me.

The update was fine, I’m not going to complain.. much. Except answering people would be a great start.

I also stacked my PS+ member ship right after the cloud service released, doesn’t that count for the Red faction promotion?

Since it looks like no one is answering the question about the Red Faction: Battleground game and whether any/or all PS+ members get access, here is the info from the email I got on it:

“Buy and activate a 12-month subscription to PlayStation®Plus by March 25 and get Red Faction®: Battlegrounds™ FREE ($9.99 value) when it releases on April 5. The newest installment in this award-winning series is yours to keep forever.

A 12-month subscription to PlayStation®Plus is only $49.99. That’s just over $4
a month* for access to free games, huge discounts and great exclusives.”

Looks like only new PS+ members were going to be able to get this one as a free download….

At first I thought StarDrone was using a PC trailer, until I read that it has Move support. Nice! A good update.
