any idea when you will release the LONG OVERDUE DLC for The Pinball Arcade?

Oh BTW, the store description of the demo clearly states that the four DLC tables are available… WTF? really? so you are adding false advertising along with incompetence?

Yes… but you pay $4-6 a month (depending on your subscription method) to have full access to all of those at no additional charge. I mean, I get that people like to own their games, but if you want to play through it, and leave it at that, then PS+ just covered you.

Awesome update, guys.

I’ve been waiting for VF5: Final Showdown for a long time – but that, plus E3 vids, plus all the freebies for PS+ this week? Wow.

Honestly, that gameplay demo for The Last Of Us made E3 for me. My jaw hasn’t dropped like that since the first time I saw Mario 64 running.

Totally awesome, but again, I must ask… WHERE are the Vita games?


90

+ Ecks on June 5th, 2012 at 3:41 pm said:

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is $14.99 (or free with Plus), that’s fair. But $29.99 for the “complete” edition (for a limited time apparently) that just has customization items for the characters? Isn’t that a bit ridiculous? What is with fighting games and the overpriced DLC nowadays?


91

+ Chance_Splinter on June 5th, 2012 at 3:42 pm said:

Oh, also;

I recently imported a copy of Grand Knights History for PSP, and man… this game needs to be localized and needs to be on the Vita. The presentation is nothing less than sumptuous.

Ozium lol i would stop that hateful spam you wouldnt want to get banned man lol


93

+ Chance_Splinter on June 5th, 2012 at 3:43 pm said:

@ Ecks:

$29.99 for the game and all DLC is a helluva lot cheaper than $59.99 for the vanilla game and $4-$5-$6 bucks for multiple character skin and costume packs down the line.

It’s an excellent value.

+ Chance_Splinter on June 5th, 2012 at 3:52 pm said:

@ 92:

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown isn’t an add-on or a patch for the 2007 VF5 release – it’s a full stand-alone title, in the same way Super Street Fighter IV is a separate game from Street Fighter IV.

Sony, BIG THANKS for this awesome selection of PS+ games!!! I’m particularly excited about Little Big Planet 2, Just Cause 2, inFAMOUS 2, and Saints Row 2!

Question: can we “buy” them now and then download them at a later date, or must we download them all now while they’re free and keep them on our HDD?
