Dear Sony, can the next free theme be the Dynamic vampire one? Or can you make it a sale and make it 90 cents, instead of $2.99:D

+ megamixer on August 9th, 2011 at 1:41 pm said:

Wish I could get in on the MM9 & 10 game discounts. Amazon-PSN only has the DLC bundles, not the games themselves. If only Sony had a web store that covered the PS3 side of things instead of just the PSP. Not that it matters since my PS3 is still as dead as PSP content updates in north america. Guess I’ll fire up DQIX in my new 3DS and get in some birthday grindan instead of p-shootering. :(

Hello again Gamers.
I’m beaming with joy, with the STREET FIGHTER III online edition, there are some serious SF III players out there.
I really want to play Bloodrayne, nice and the BACONING will most likely get sliced up.( get it, sliced up ) ? whatever.
Freedy is a really cool idea for a DLC caracter, but at $5 ? I dont know man.
I mean, were paying $59.99 for a full Blu-Ray disk of content, why are we being charged that much for a single caracter ? I dont agree with the pricing at all.
The GTA price drops are the best this week, with LATD coming at $4.99, thats just sweet.
Worms DLC seems like a good deal, but what is up with all the RDR DLC ? really, rockstar, REALLY ??
My pspGo, is not a happy camper this week. I was looking forward to at leaste seeing a psOne classic or 2 this week, but again, nothing. Kaz, I think we need to talk.
I love the DRIVER series, the 1st was a classic to me, so im amped to take this demo for a spin tonight.Keeping my fingers crossed.
Im liking the downloadable games this week, but way too much overpriced DLC, puts a damper on this weeks update. Plus a lack of refreshing psp titles and psOne classics and this update slips to a , 2.5/5…As always gamers, Keep On Gamin.

Just bought Freddy Krueger but it pisses me off that PSN JUST NOW gets the 4 DLC for the price of 3. I bought all 4 already and this deal early on could have kept an extra 5 bucks in my pocket man. I don’t mean to sound cheap but it annoys me.

Ok, Sony got me. Pre-ordered the 4 games for Payday: The Heist and got some free themes. Not a bad deal at all! Thanks Sony! Though this update is quite weak for me. Cheers!

+ CASTRADOMIS on August 9th, 2011 at 1:53 pm said:

With Sony cutting prices on all this dlc, this begs the question…..WHY are Killzone 2′s dlc maps still horrifically overpriced? $5.99 a map pack, $11.99 for the bundle (and that was AFTER a price cut), and this month a total of 4 people in the entire world were playing them.

Even Killzone 3′s dlc map packs and bundles are cheaper!

What gives Sony?

You made Resistance 1′s dlc maps totally free after Resistance 2 was released, why not do the same with Killzone 2′s maps? Especially given the fact no one is buying the maps anyway.

I agree that 30 dollars is too much for Far Cry 2 you can get it cheaper but, I am not gonna whine and cry about the price they aren’t forcing me or any other ps3 gamer too buy the game if you don’t wanna buy then don’t it’s a waste of time too complain about it.

+ Clawfinger84 on August 9th, 2011 at 2:03 pm said:

it’s high time to release more oldschool GOOD stuff for the PS1. the last good release was PE2, but before that it was pretty weak. You should release more PS1 stuff. If you have a good relation to capcom, why not release the complete Mega Man X series. Or why not go big with Silent Hill 1? there’s tons of good games, but you choose the most obscure and halfassed games to probably ever see the light of day to release. Give me an hour and I can give a list of games you could be releasing one game a week for probably a year with little to no negativity from other gamers

@ Ro

Hey I’ve loved all the recent discounts I got from PS+ and ones that have been offered to regular members. It’s been a discount bonanza ;-). Anyways though I was hoping we would be able to see some discounts on Add-ons such as those for Folklore and LittleBigPlanet 1. I would really enjoy seeing that :-) .

Finally Ro could you do me a favor and request that the Original Twisted Metal on the PS1 be released on the PS Store, or at least find out why is hasn’t been so far? I really miss that game and hope it isn’t lost forever because of some stupid licensing issues.

Hopefully you will be able to reply.

Thanks in Advance
