Hey everyone,
This week we’ve got great new PSN experiences to highlight, including new PSN Games, a great new way to access a killer multiplayer experience, and the return of a cult classic.

This week also marks the start of the 2012 Gamers’ Choice Awards! Vote on your favorite PSN releases from 2011 by going to the PlayStation Store and select your favorite from each category. Each of the nominees were selected based on their ratings from you, the players. Voting is open for one week. Then next week, the winners of each category will go on sale. The power is in your hands; vote now! Vote at psngamerschoiceawards.com to select your favorite PSN Indie. Then check out the rest of the nominees on the PlayStation Store.

Last year, Killzone 3 exploded on the scene with an unforgettable single player campaign and a fantastic multiplayer mode.

Check out the unique objective based missions in which you and your squad compete against another online squad for control of blisteringly detailed environments. It’s an epic multiplayer experience with no charge to play online on PSN. The Killzone 3 Multiplayer Mode is free to play up to level 20. If you want more, purchase the full mode from the PlayStation Store. PlayStation Plus subscribers, however, can get the full mode 50% off for 1 month starting today.

To round off the PSN Games, don’t forget to check out new PS3 Full Games this week include Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest. As noted earlier this week, Primal is debuting in the PS2 Classics collection. Read up on this PS2 favorite which is now available to download.

It’s the last week of February and that means it’s your last chance to download some of the best free and discounted content in PlayStation Plus! In addition to the aforementioned 50% discount on the Killzone 3 Multiplayer Mode, February also sports great free content like The Simpsons Arcade Game and Final Fantasy V.

@omega_alpha-619 This guy you call a moron has firsthand experience with being screwed out of my digital games. Back when Assassin’s Creed 2 was on sale I got it for $10. Almost a year later the game for some reason would not allow me to play it and was trying to send me to the Playstation Store to purchase it even though I had already payed for it. Know what i ended up getting back when I called up Sony? I got $10 added to my wallet because that was the price I payed for it during the sale. What that also means is that I could not get my game back because the game was no longer $10 it was $20. I’m not even all that angry about that, but it’s an eye opener that you need to be especially cautious when it comes to buying digital.

To think they would have to come to your house and physically remove it from your HDD to make it unplayable is what makes you an idiot. You need a little more education on how these things work.

+ Sevyne on February 29th, 2012 at 9:44 pm said:

And I am not the first nor the last person this has happened to. Go fishing through the forums a bit and you’ll see plenty of cases of this. You won’t do that though. instead you’ll pepper your posts with “LOL”,”lmao!”, “moron!”, and the ever so genious “I can remove my HDD so it’s no different than owning a disc.”. You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. Keep on rockin.

I’m also wondering why the discount is gone. I figure it could be some random glitch, but I wouldn’t expect it to happen to everyone like this, and it wouldn’t surprise me too much for someone to decide “Y’know, $7.50 is just too cheap.” :/ I was under the impression that the discount would at least last until next week, yet just a couple hours after the last time I saw it discounted, I go to add it to my cart and find that it wants $14.99… At least let us know if the discount is gone for good, because this confusion does nothing but prevent us from buying it at all.

+ Cruz480 on February 29th, 2012 at 10:59 pm said:

Yea this is kind of retarded if i may say. I was about to purchase it from the PStore and suddenly i see its 14.99. I was very willingly to purchase for 7 bucks, but definitely not for 15 just for the simple feeling that i have of being ripped off at this moment…

Part of me wants to think that this is some kind of mistake. Maybe its due to the maintenance thats supposed to take place later today..(Thursday, 1st of March, 2012 )

Then again another part of me is getting the feeling that they pulled one those “get it NOW or regret it” deals. Which is bullcrap.

Just my thoughts. Keep up the great works PSblog

Pretty good demos and such. Just wondering if there are any good Co-Op fantasy games coming up? And not like Dungeon Defenders or Dungeon Hunter Alliance. I’m talking something where 2 to 8 people can explore an open world, like kingdoms of amalur or skyrim or even red dead redemption, and can meet up and fight or join forces to take on harder tasks. Also the quest system would be more of a log than a waypoint thing, or it could get really immersive with the quests and you actually have to take notes on a peice of paper like in the good ol’ days of role playing games. The chat system would be range dependant, by that i mean voice chat would only travel so far in game. Like if someone is far away you could send them a text messege but if your close by in game you can talk using voice chat.

When I looked on Tuesday, the game STORM was available, when I got a card on Thursday, it was no longer available, and it was a game that I thought looked really good. Looked around on the store, and it was no longer available, as neither was the game Q-BERT, which my brother wanted on his system. What happened to either one of these? Also, is there every going to be a large update for Hot Shots Golf Out Of Bounds on PS3 that would add trophy support and move support? I love playing the game, but it seemed to have dropped out of existence. Also, for the VITA, does that actually play the PS2 classic games and PSOne classic games that were bought and downloaded from the store, as well as play all of the Mini and PSP titles?
