PlayStation Plus Update: 12-24-2012

While we’re smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season, we thought we’d drop in and deliver some new content for PlayStation Plus members. Don’t forget that you still have time to make Plus a great stocking stuffer for the PlayStation gamers in your life. You can buy online, get the voucher code, and then give that voucher code to your friends and family.

Now, to business! Plus members will be getting the wonderfully hilarious 8-bit styling of Retro City Rampage free, as well as extra savings on the continuation of the PSN Holiday Sale.

Important note: We’ll be updating the PlayStation Store today (Monday, 12/24) due to the Christmas holiday. Therefore, this Plus update will be live later today when the update has published.

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita or click here to get access.

but I actually voted for Retro City Rampage this week cause I was going to buy that game, now I don’t have to. But one week when the rest of the month had nothing for me is still very weak.

Thanks Morgan!!!! Love Retro City Rampage! Speaking only for myself but this is what I want from Plus. I would rather have newish PSN games than older retail games. Also, if the NBA Jam rumors are true then another thank you is in order.

@ DookieDong

“And of course you think NBA JAM is great you think all games are right.”

Actually, I don’t. I’m just trying to get through to you dorks the same thing Morgan has said over and over again about tastes being “subjective”. But you don’t want to learn. Just keep plugging your ears saying, “la la la I can’t hear you!”

If you like basketball, and you like FUN, you should like NBA JAM. Why compare it to 2K13? They’re completely different. Just let things be what they are and judge them on their own merits. Comparisons like that are ridiculously lopsided and therefore, pointless.

“just because you had a fun experience with a game, doesn’t mean everyone else is going to too”

Note how I said, “I can understand how it’s not everyone’s cup of tea”… umm… so I guess that’s yet another thing that flew straight over your head…

“there are SO MANY WAYS TO MANIPULATE THIS IT”S NOT EVEN FUNNY”

By all means, please explain these many manipulation methods. You won’t, because you can’t. You make up stuff like this but never back it up with facts. I never manipulated the numbers. I simply pointed out what’s ACTUALLY THERE.

It’s a FACT that 39% voted for “nothing for me”.

It’s a FACT that the other two options represent an offering of tangible content, that a combined 61% decided was worth voting for, AGAINST saying “nothing for me”.

Where’s the twist? There isn’t one. Everyone saying you can manipulate the numbers just sounds like a conspiracy tard. Thing is, you probably voted for “nothing for me”, thought your side won the vote with 39%, but then felt stupid when the rest of us pointed out that you really didn’t win, and now you’re in denial/damage control mode, trying to find a way to discredit us, and keep your illusions alive. Period.

@ fap-it

“it’s really funny how you think that you are getting the better of me”

Nah dude, you got the better of yourself a long time ago. I’ve just been having fun playing with you for the past couple of days.

“I’m not going to respond to him anymore, I’m going to start responding to those he is targeting. That will shut him down”

Hee hee… finally realized you lost, but couldn’t bring yourself to admit it, huh? You’ll never “shut me down”, son. Nice fantasy you got there. I guess you’re going to learn this the hard way. And the only people I “target” are trolls just like you. Trying to build up an army of trolls against me isn’t going to work, dude. 1, 10, 50, or 100 trolls all fighting me are still just trolls. Still in the wrong. Numbers won’t help you be right. I’ll still embarrass every last one of you.

“Hee hee… finally realized you lost, but couldn’t bring yourself to admit it, huh?”

Nope, I’m perfectly willing to admit that I lost. Not to superior logic but to superior stamina. You can do this forever where I get tired of it pretty quickly. It’s nothing that you should brag about.

“Trying to build up an army of trolls against me isn’t going to work, dude.”

That’s not what I’m going to do at all, I’m going to try to stop them from responding to you. Point out that you are a troll and once everyone is ignoring you, you’ll go away eventually.

goodbye & have fun talking to yourself

“I’m perfectly willing to admit that I lost. Not to superior logic but to superior stamina.”

You got that half right. Yes, my resilience is second to none, but your logic wasn’t up to par here either.

“I’m going to try to stop them from responding to you. Point out that you are a troll and once everyone is ignoring you, you’ll go away eventually”

Dude, we talked about this already. Remember? I told you that things like that don’t work once people reach puberty and develop interests of their own. People aren’t just going to blindly believe whatever you say about another person, especially one stranger talking about another, and especially when it’s something as small time as an internet forum. People try that a lot and it never works. You’ve already tried it, and what has happened? Nothing. You’re wasting your time, and again your energy will be depleted before you reach your goal (as it was here). Most people have already made up their mind about me one way or another anyway… you’re not going to influence any of that.

this is ridiculous.

sync up all playstation stores and makes them into one, where all content is available. if there’s laws prohibiting content, that can still be respected by doing a quick location track when someone tries to buy said content.

i know people in europe want to play symphony of the night for ps1, but we can’t, we’d love to get retro city rampage and play it with all our hearts, but we can’t even buy it. in the same way, americans would love bioshock 2, but they’re denied it. what is the problem, sony?
