@41, Artic edge was removed from the store because it can be used as an exploit to run Homebrew Loader on the Vita.

Not into CoD, but EVERYONE should pick up Journey if they haven’t already. It is a beautiful game (not just talking about art direction and graphics). Please support the companies that create and provide this wonderful content.

@Ro Hernandez
“PSN Card is so necessary.”

IAWTP. Debit card used to suffice, but after what happened to PSN (and my card personally) last *spring* I can wholeheartedly say PSN cards are the only way to go.

Speaking of spring, what’s with all the negative nellies in here? Does the spring not immediately bring to mind shooting people? New life is born into the world every spring. So taking life fits… um, well, look its too DEEP to get into but it makes perfect sense I swear.

:D

Hmm… I could get most of those for cheaper at my locally owned game store or on a Steam sale. But Journey is going to be very tempting.

uhhhh whats Closure? other than that ive already got my copy of Journey. amazing game. ill probably just be checking out the dlc for the week besides that, though.

+ DeathGazer on March 12th, 2012 at 4:16 pm said:

Yes! Closure!

I assume we’ll be getting some posts about it on the blog soon? It’s been on my radar ever since it was announced.

We need Battlefield 3 Digital Download on the store please

I want a Digital copy of the game please

Hey there, I need some help. I still can’t sign in to PSN, whenever I try to sign in it gives me a message saying “Sony Entertainment Network is currently undergoing maintenance”. Please help it has already been a week or so not signing in to PSN.

Really happy to see Closure and of course Journey on there, but the last blog post on Closure was in August last year and I think it’s going to slip under the radar. Could you guys do another blog post on the game, maybe as part of a feature on the indie titles being released this year? There is the perception that PSN is severely lacking in indie titles compared to XBLA. Would be great to see what we can look forward to coming out this year and build some hype for the indie devs.

I was so excited when I read “The Call of Duty franchise sale” and thought YES Black Ops DLC is finally going to be on sale as I can not justify the $15 for 4 DLCs… anyway so I scrolled down just to see all BUT the Black Ops DLC will be on sale. Well so I wait so more.

I would love to see Homefront in this sale at some point. Its an mazing game but I only have $19.00 left on my wallet..so maybe i could get a good deal with PS Plus? Well anyway is there a chance that Homefornt will be on sale?

So… Mass Effect is a franchise…right? How about some love? Thanks guys!

Wow, still no discount for Black Ops DLC? Shame on you Activision. The game is a year and 4 months old. It’s time to give us a damn deal.

+ Taco_Grande on March 12th, 2012 at 6:27 pm said:

To the PLUS members that have downloaded Journey this week. I have read stories that suggest that there is a dynamic theme that comes with the game, but when I go to buy it on PSN store, it does not say anything about it.

Can anyone confirm that they are a PLUS member that has downloaded Journey and received the dynamic theme ?

Thank you for your time and patience.

So, when are we going to get a big update for PSP games on the Vita? I know I’m not the only one that has at least one PSP game that I know works but am not allowed to move to my PSV or download from the store because it’s not up on the Vita’s version.

Am looking forward to see what’s done with Final Fantasy… I hope we get an update on PSV’s PS1 emulator soon…

+ TUSTIN1 on March 12th, 2012 at 6:44 pm said:

To hell with Call of Duty.

Sony should take the same stance as Microsoft (can’t believe I just said that) and say that if content isn’t available at the same time, no PlayStation release.

Screw ‘em, we don’t need their crap.

Any THQ sales like the one in EU last week? Can’t wait to get Space Marine DLC if they are on sales.

And here I thought Journey was gonna have a discount. :(

Can we still get that Journey dynamic theme in the future?


74

+ supvic on March 12th, 2012 at 7:45 pm said:

Why no Black Ops DLC included in the sale? CoD4, MW2 and WaW all have DLC included or on sale, why not Black Ops? at $40 for an OLD game, including DLC in the sale is more than expected.

I understand that Call of Duty is overrated, but I can’t see why people think it’s a trend to hate on the series. It’s kind of sad, to be honest.

just realized World at War isn’t on PSN. wish it was so the sale could apply

Definitely worth picking up Call of duty 4 and World At War, both outstanding titles.


79

+ rd-kryten on March 12th, 2012 at 9:16 pm said:

Ok so the map pack DLC’s for all the other Call of Duty games are on sale EXCEPT for Black Ops. Do they plan of discounting this a year from now when everyone else has moved on to the newer series?

Not smart at all.

At least it’ll keep my wallet safe!

come on, COD Black Ops can’t go any cheaper then $39.99? i guess i’ll have to hit up gamestop to get a used copy ($34.99) so i can bring back some Zombie Killing.

hope next week is better. I dont care about COD.

+ Boxster17 on March 12th, 2012 at 9:27 pm said:

Nothing really for me this week, though I’ll mention everyone should experience Journey. Also wish Closure was on the Vita, as I would probably have picked it up for that (too many games on the go with the PS3 for a while).

Look forward to seeing what next week offers, still have some money in my wallet I’m looking to spend.

Only need one thing this week, JOURNEY, game looks amazing, its a shame that its only about 2 hours long (based on reviews), but I’m sure the experience will be worth it.

+ kcku0527 on March 13th, 2012 at 2:32 am said:

I have really thought about buying a Vita, in fact have the $299.99 in my back pocket looking at it here at Wal-mart right now. I think I’ll pass until you guys fix the problem with remote play, as that is the main feature I’m interested in. I really would like to throw down more than what I paid for my PS3 system for this powerhouse but not until it gets the playstation plus support it deserves. Oh, and speaking of Playstation Plus, it has totally not been worth my money, except for last week with Journey. (Amazing game!!!) The games of the year discounts are cool too, picked up a few of those, but overall very disappointed. Come on Sony!! I would much rather fling dollars your way than to those other guys, but you have to make it worth the time and effort to even check here or the store. Last but not least, COD…..REALLY?……REALLY? Guess I can sleep through the Drop this week, check back next week to be disappointed again.

+ kcku0527 on March 13th, 2012 at 2:38 am said:

@angelspawn77

Journey is amazing, graphics are beautiful, u will not be disappointed. Buy it probably should be a early choice for PSN game of the year for this year already. Even better if u have someone else playing online to make the trip with u. Definitely one of the few recent games worth your time.

+ Lapwner on March 13th, 2012 at 8:55 am said:

Please fix Call of Duty 4 before you get people to buy it on sale…the “Yes/No” Continue Screen is annoying and involves a tedious and lengthy fix of turning off your router, then turning it back on again once you are in the game. Furthermore, the online is ruined by hackers and modders. This account (my main account) got hacked and apparently customer support can’t reset me back to Level 1 stats, even though I was maliciously affected in matchmaking. Fix this, and maybe you can get people to buy CoD4. But for now, even on sale, I wouldn’t recommend CoD4 for PS3, it is ruined.

Didn’t the Europe PSN Store recently do a 30-50% off on all Final Fantasy games? I hope we get that same deal next week for the Final Fantasy spring sale. If it’s 50% off for PS+ members, I’ll be spending a lot of money.
