Yeah….thanks for answering my question about the trophy list Sony. Now I know why….because when you download the free Blue Toad game, it loads all 6 episodes of the trophies, though you SEPARATELY downloaded just the one episode. Nice. Another ruse to get us to buy stuff after offering a game for free since all the trophies seem to load for games you do this “free” thing for. Oh hey…free stuff….oh…but you can’t complete your trophy list unless you PURCHASE the whole package ($9.99 presently). Your sales tactics are downright disgusting and close to textbook bait and switch.

You know full well how the majority of the community feels about completing their trophy list and how we feel about having trophies load for products we do not want or have not decided to purchase yet. Yet, week after week, you continue this practice.

Golly thanks for listening to your customer base.

-Extremely dissatisfied PS+ and long-term PS supporter.

@AUTOXFOOL

…SO TRUE…

PlaystationPlus, every week, is becoming more and more of a washout…
Kinda Misleading when they toss you a “free” game, but you have to invest $30 in DLC addons to complete the trophy list…BLAH…but, you did get the 4.99 game for free…lol…it’s a cash grab…it was never for the gamers or dedicated PS followers…

anyhow, the xbla or whatever they call it over in M$ land has much BIGGER discounts on their games, get this, what we get on SALE, they get for regular price…i went and checked this out because of other post i saw here on the blog…talk about SONY really being shady!

I will not be renewing either of my PlaystationPlus subscriptions at this rate(make us want to pay for some good stuff sony, and free themes don’t really count now do they!)…and the PSN does have some nice exclusives, but the regular games are on the OTHER network usually cheaper and when on sale, for a better price…

wow…yes, this was a rant…boohoo for sid4peeps eh…blah blah blah…but in the end…it’s the truth…you want the gamers to spend their buck on your network sony, then start acting like it!!!

That is so true,

I absolutely hate Microsoft and Xbox, but they are ahead of Sony because they do give better deals to people.

Now that Dino Crisis 2 has arrived, we just need METAL GEAR SOLID: VR MISSIONS ($5.99)

I believe my comments that I posted a few days ago have been erased. Why is that? I merely tell you that you have all these complaints about Playstation Plus and when we tell you things things you don’t even acknowledge our concerns. This is exactly why I canceled my subscription to it.

I also believe there were a few comments from other people that were taken off as well. Why do you disavowal the things we say? If we didn’t care about this product we would not spend the time to get on here and tell you our problems.

Playstation Plus was a hit when it first was offered to us. Search surfthelast1 and you will see some posting from people on numerous of websites about Plus. Wait, nevermind since you don’t listen to us. I guess what I’m saying is sadly if I don’t feel that I’m wanted as a customer then I will find another product and business that will happily take my money. I just bought a Xbox 360 kinect. (by the way the kinect which is outselling the Playstation move 5 to 1 ).

GRRR, WHY LIST AN UPDATE WHEN THE NETWORK GOES DOWN ANYWAYS? NOT LIKE WE CAN PLAY ONLINE, BUY GAMES, WATCH MOVIES ETC…

This is not HACKERS, so stop blaming them for your infrastructure problems. You don’t come out and say it was them, but by not saying anything when people make that assumption it pretty much places blame on them.

Have a good day. Toodles…

Guys can you drop the price on Ace Combat: Joint Assault (PSP) on the PSN Store?
It’s $15 on UMD, but $39.99 for download.

I can’t buy on UMD cause I have a pspgo, and obviously I don’t wanna overpay for a digital download.

Thanks!

2 things:

First timers playing SOCOM 4 will definitely be VERY disappointed with the other games…as they’re not run-of-the-mill third person shooters.

Skipping everything and seeing Dino Crisis 2 on the update made me a very happy person. Too bad the godamned Network’s out.
