Sony, and Morgan Haro and whoever else has been running this blog not including Jeff has done a PISS POOR JOB with the announcements of games in recent update etc. This is not the 1st time a store update, and then last minute you guys pull a “oh yeah the game had some issues, and wont make it this week”. You have have done this COUNTLESS TIMES!!! Too many I can have a list that can go on and on. To top that, Morgan keep ignoring the fact that there was suppose to be a Beta for Plus users last month but go pushed back, and still is mum about the whole thing! Sony is not handling anything right it seems. Get your S&*t together, and make sure this does not happen again!

STOP messing with the consumer, and make sure a game is coming out 100% before putting it on this blog. You guys are quite about other things **HINT HINT** a Beta that people still don’t know what it is..

    dude; I haven’t been mum on the Beta. I mentioned that it was scheduled to come in earlier, but got pushed back. Games. They need development sometimes =) You wouldn’t want to get access to something and it be totally lame right? But I’m not at liberty to disclose what the Beta is, which is what I imagine what you’re frustrated about. Wish I could do more!

    As for the GTA 3 business. Yeah, it’s hard on everyone. All were cleared to announce by the respective publisher, and we went ahead and revealed on the blogcast that it was coming. But the call came through this Monday and darn if we didn’t leave our time machine back at home! We do our best to keep you guys updated with accurate information and appreciate you rolling with the punches alongside us when things out of our control happen. Many thanks! =)

This weeks plus update is a joke. First we never got any new themes for the month of July which is unacceptable. I remember reading that members of Plus will be given free themes and avatars each month what happened this month ????

I wish I could say plus has gotten better since the instant game collection but really it hasn’t. Why would Gotham city imposters be rotated out when it was just given last month and an older game like Saints row 2 is still given free. I hope July will be better but so far I am not liking what I am hearing.

Morgan, I don’t know if you can do anything about it, but if you have any kind of contact with anyone from Capcom, could you please suggest them to bring Asura’s Wrath (Full PS3 game) and Mega Man X Collection (PS2 Classic) to the PSN? I’m willing to give them my money. =D

Hey Morgan,

The new format is much nicer to look at and early updates are always nice :) The theme that comes with pre-ordering SoundShapes is super nice! Gonna be rocking that one for a while. I have 2 questions that you may or may not be able to answer,
1. Are we ever going to get the Arkedo! series in NA? I really wanna play JUMP.
2. I was wondering if there is a way to turn off certain notifications while online (either PS3 or Vita). Im a bit of a trophy whore and I like to see and hear my trophies DING, but Id like to turn off my friend notifications sometimes. I dont really need to know so-and-so is going offline while Im in the middle of a tricky speed run :)

As a sidenote I was hoping for an HD collection of GTA as well…
Anyways, Im always glad to see the plus program improving and this blog as well. The evolution shows someone actually is listening! And to those people complaining that they already have the free games offered, maybe you should buy less games. No wait, dont do that! Oh well cant please everyone all the time.

Also, just curious, is there any chance the PSP versions of Final Fantasy I & II will ever come out on PSN? I don’t know why North America’s PSN doesn’t have them, but they’re up on the Japanese and European PSNs.

Thanks!

Some of these plus complaints are crazy. It’s like you expect every single new PSN release to be free for plus members. That’s the only way Sony could solve the “I already own this” and “No free games this week?” complaints.

Of course that’s never going to happen. Sony’s not going to give you a brand new release every week for $50/year. Get your expectations in check.

Honestly Morgan, you guys messed up when you decided to do stuff like Costume Quest and The Simpsons Game free at launch. You should have drawn a line in the sand that said “If you want stuff at launch, pay full/plus discounted price. No freebies.

You just enabled the complainers and their nonsensical expectations.

Personally, I’m going to continue to use plus for that it’s supposed to be used for: Checking out games I passed on when they came out.

@36Budapesti, Sometimes Pulse skips an entire month. It skipped June. Look at the release dates. It went from May 22 to July 3rd.

Morgan,
I have been a member of PS+ since day 1, and in the beginning, it was great. There was a steady stream of not only free games, but free avatars and themes. In the last few months, there have been no themes and only a few avatars. Any clue when the avatars and themes might return?
I love the Instant Game Collection, but there seems to be no system to when and what games are cycled in and out. Are they going to develop a system, or will it remain random?

Also, I thought new games were being cycled in today? Are Walking Dead 1 and 2 the only games coming this month?
I still think it is unfair to those who paid $20 for the season, and now end up paying $5 more than they should. With 1 and 2 free, buying 3, 4, and 5 only costs $15 if you buy each one, but those of us who bought the season got screwed.
It seems PS+ punishes us for buying games, because shortly after they release they become free. This is the fourth time something I bought has become free withing a month or two. I don’t suppose Plus members with a season pass for WD can get that $5 back as a wallet credit or something?

@The_Bunn: just traded my Vita in about half an hour ago. Got enough for a Kinect and 3DS game.

It’s a shame but there is just no support for us (especially the launch date buyers) and no one from Sony acknowledges the Vita nor its users. Seeing them respond only to posts like “sweet, crunchy roll is out” just proves we were forgotten.

A toast everyone, to another month of PlayStation Vita not being relevant. Starting tomorrow, it will be 6 months since the Vita was released into North America. Since then in my opinion & other Vita owners, we haven’t seen anything really exciting. No future firmwares, no exclusive games, no bundles, etc. I mean seriously, what is the point of having a new hardware system into your market if nothing is relevant about it. Don’t believe me, just look at the preety low sales so far, or watch “E3″ again. Let’s all give PlayStation & Sony a round of applause…..Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

This is CRAP! the only reason i didnt buy Hustle Kings and Foosball while on discount last week was because of GTA3 being released today. thanks for keeping us ILL INFORMED yet again. Playstation plus membership is proving to be a waste of cash. any game you release for free i’ve already bought on disc at full price. all the discounts tend to be boring as hell games. WORST of all, i bought a vita and theres nothing of value to play after beating uncharted and blob. If another FAILED update comes along i’m selling all 80+ games along with my console, that weak piece of hardware called playstation move and my waste of $300 3g vita and defecting to xbox. at least they bend over backwards to keep their customers happy. If microsoft was in charge of playstation we would have nearly the entire ps1 and ps2 collection available for download, the systems would be backwards compatible and the vita would play ps1 (and probably ps2) without requiring me to remote desktop to my ps3. Why does sony forsaken us? And why is the homebrew hacker community able to get a vita to remote desktop and play full ps3 titles and sony cant figure it out?

Still no update on increased PSVita – PSP compatibility? Metal Gear Portable Ops is playable in EU, but not NA. What’s the deal with localizing compatibility? I need something to play on the Vita before Sound Shapes drops!

Morgan Haro

I know it’s not your fault that games get last minute delays, but it was just frustrating

I know there was a Killzone game that got delayed on PSN, then there was a Mickey Game for PSone that got delayed, the a Beta that got delayed, and now GTA III.

Thanks for understanding the frustration, I know PSN will keep getting better becuase you guys truly try to listen to each fan, and try to reply to everyone. Anyways….

I have already pre-order 2 games for the Summer Play games,

I am DLing The Expendables, and Pre-Order Sound Shape for next week., I will also pre-order one more game next week!

So Morgan,

With this comment, “but this hasn’t been confirmed as to if we can fix the issue yet”, are you saying there is a chance GTA III will never be released on PSN because of this issue possibly not being able to be fixed?

    Yeah, I mean I can’t say for 100% certainty if the gears will be able to move to fix (and let me be clear) this particular edition of GTA 3 (The PS2 Classic version). I don’t have any insight on any development hurdles here, so I can’t confirm; but at the same time, I know that Rockstar is reviewing options with the teams as we speak; so it’s very much possible as well. I’m afraid you’ll just have to stay tuned

How about adding Ape Escape to PSone classics and Ape Escape 2 and 3 to PS2 classics. it sold great and its first party. why are they being forgotten? Weve had no new ape escape since 2005 in english countries besides the crappy spinoff Ape Escape Move. Please???

    man, you gotta read the Plus posts more carefully! There will be another Plus post in mid August announcing 2 additional games free in Plus. The Walking Dead 2 episodes count as 1 game in our eyes.

This update is beyond bad. A well deserved 1/5. I know the summer is traditionally a slow month ( doesn’t have to be, but for some reason they decide that’s the case) but these slim updates with little to no sales to speak combined with download errors, content access errors, notices of games being released that are pulled on the final day is making you (PSN) look pretty bad. I don’t like to just complain but there is little to praise at this time.

You know, I went on the Playstation Store and saw that it was updated, went to the new releases section and saw that War of the Monsters was on it but not Grand Theft Auto III. I search the PS2 Classics section, nothing. I came here, saw it was removed, and I got so angry I couldn’t even remember my password to sign in. Do you guys know I spend an extra $20 on a PSN card yesterday because you said GTA3 was coming today? Kingdom Hearts 3D is coming out today too and I could have used those $20 to pay off the money left on my deposit on it. That’s $20 extra dollars I spent on games this week on failed promises. Next time you say a game is coming, especially one as popular as Grand Theft Auto make sure the kinks are worked out. I am not a very happy customer right now, first I hear The Walking Dead episode 1 and 2 are released on PS+ Whatever Library not even 2 weeks after I buy it with my own money, and now this. Two great video game companies brought down by a company trying too hard to make money off it’s online service. And the more I analyze the game developers in the Instant Game Collection library the more I begin to make assumptions based on why they (not their games in particular) get their games there.
