I really don’t care about the MP, but i would like to know how the game will reward old Uncharted players, because it was pretty lame to give cash to those who played the first game and weren’t interested in the multiplayer

I dont get it though…everyone is ps plus so the people that got the infamous 2 voucher code got screwed. How about letting infamous 2 buyers enter their code this friday, at least giving us 3 more days than EVERYONE. Just a suggestion to make it up to the people that bought/preordered infamous 2

The UC3 Beta is the only thing of interest.

I feel that those of us that were on PS+ before the PSN outage are being shafted on a lot of things that were going to be offered: Outland Discount, Crash Commando, BG+E Discount…

The lineup for PS+ has been subpar since the RSN recovery and subsequent free membership to all.

+ MrZoobat on June 22nd, 2011 at 8:04 pm said:

I just want a confirmation,

PS+ members from the Welcome Back program get access to the UC3 beta on the 28th, right?

Because I remember some rumors about the Welcome Back PS+ being only for the content of May and not for the 30 days after you sign up.

If I downloaded PS+ through the Welcome Back program just a couple days ago then I get early access to the Uncharted 3 beta right?

    + Morgan Haro on June 23rd, 2011 at 9:42 am said:

    That’s exactly right. For the 30 Days of Plus from Welcome Back, your 30 days starts when you access it. So if you started it a couple days ago, you’ll be in the UC3 Beta window easily.

I am new to the whole beta thing, will it be free for non Playstation Plus users on July 5?

+ angelspawn77 on June 22nd, 2011 at 8:13 pm said:

Im super excited for the MP beta, only a few days away! I think naughty dog should have extended the MP beta a week earlier though and made it ONLY for the people that bought infamous 2. It makes the code worthless due to the free month of Plus everyone gets, I have the free month so I won’t even need my code. The code is only good for new purchasers of ps3 that weren’t eligible for the welcome back stuff.

What’s up with getting Streets of Rage 2 again? We already got that last week. Can’t wait for the Uncharted 3 beta. Medievil is cool as with Bomberman. I may pick up Funky Lab Rat for the $5. Overall it’s some pretty week Plus updates for the next month.

    + Morgan Haro on June 23rd, 2011 at 9:49 am said:

    Yeah Bomberman and Medievil are classic. Streets 2 is awesome, but we’ll be rolling out the next game from the Sega Genesis Collection on July 12 with Golden Axe 2. And yeah, those 50% discounts are on some pretty sweet games if you haven’t picked them up yet!

Do you have to be subcribed to the full one year PS+ or can you just be the 3monthts PS+? What is the deadline to purchase either of the two to be able to get into the Uncharted 3 Beta?
Does this only count for the people that bought PS+ or does it fall under the whole “free PS+ for a month” thing? Please someone asnwer.

    As long as you have Plus membership of any type, you can jump on the UC3 Beta when it rolls out next week. You’ll have the Plus on your account which means you can go into the Store, and download it. Plus access is Plus access, no matter which way you frame it =)

+ TJF588 on June 22nd, 2011 at 8:40 pm said:

Now THIS is more like it. Sure, some repeat sales, but no bigger discounts for anything I’ve purchased, so no offense on my end. Bomberman ULTRA? MediEvil? Yes, please. I’ll prolly pick up Funky Lab Rat at that price. And, dorky as it is to type, a dynamic clock theme sounds pretty cool.

I’m sure there will be avatars on the PSN Store other than ones that Capcom makes…Someday…Ok, maybe not (there will always be a weekly spam of their avatars that I wouldn’t pay 1 cent for). On top of that Capcom continues to insult PS3 owners some more by offering Okami avatars & Megaman Legends avatars while the Okami sequel/prequel & MegaMan Legends sequel will only be on the DS & 3DS.

Hi everyone,

Are you ready for two more rounds of new PlayStation Plus content? Well, April continues to be the biggest Plus month ever in terms of content offerings with some huge discounts and free games coming your way over the next two weeks! As announced on the PlayStation Europe blog last week, we’ve secured a deal with Ubisoft to offer all Plus subscribers 20% discounts on the games Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (available now), Outland (coming April 26), and Beyond Good and Evil (coming this May).

thanks for the uc3 beta, however if you want more people to purchase beyond good and evil, you need to back up your promise. I appreciate that you son’t want to sell it to a discount and lose your publisher cut, but you made this announcement and honestly this is the sort of thing that is making me lean towards not signing up for a year, i’ll just let the free month expire and do what I always do… wait for sales on things i actually want to buy.


89

+ Skeetlejuice on June 22nd, 2011 at 9:10 pm said:

I would have purchased outland as well incidentally if you honored the previous price, as such you lost outland and beyond sales from me, simply not buying them out of principle.

by all means respond to another Uncharted 3 beta favorable comment and ignore all the ones that have a valid point requesting a real response.

Does this UC3 multiplayer beta apply to those of the 30 day free trial of PS+? If it does, will it be deleted when 30 days runs out? Oh, and one more thing. Is this beta available for regular users without PS+? I heard that it would a few weeks after the PS+ one.

Hey, this post says that some of the EA Welcome Back offers are still on sale such as Dead Space Ignition. However, it’s already been taken off sale a few days ago along with a few other titles in this post. Were they accidentally taken off sale and will they be discounted again before July 5th? I really want to buy one or more of them. I did manage to purchase Braid before it went back to normal price, so not all is lost.
