You should bookmark this site: pinballarcadefans(dot)com/showthread(dot)php/194-Latest-NEWS-And-INFORMATION-From-FarSight-Studios-Concerning-The-Pinball-Arcade

It’s regularly updated with news about upcoming Pinball Arcade tables, and their release dates. As you can see, Table Pack #7 with Big Shot and Elvira’s Scared Stiff, as well as the Twilight Zone table aren’t slated for release until January. Probably late January…

Thanks for fixing Unit 13 price i just buyed it!!
I was wondering if there is any chance for a extra day with the last week sales but i guess no =p. This early update was unexpcted for me and a lot of ppl here. Just one should be enough for ppl here and should be very kind of you guys.

Making this a weekly mandatory copy/paste!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
Listen I am going to speak for all of us “complainers”.
All we want is everything for Plus that Europe and Japan has.
Also we want every game ever released on PSN ever.
Also make every game that was released on disc put on PSN and then given to Plus members.
We also need the following PS1 games available and given to Plus members:
ALL OF THEM
We also need the following PS2 games available for PSN members:
ALL OF THEM
Also why can’t we play Nintendo and Microsoft games on our PS3? We want the following games for PS3:
ALL OF THEM
Also we want the following PS3 games on Vita:
ALL OF THEM
Why is Plus $50 a year? Seems like you would sell a lot of more PS3 if you gave away Plus.
Also why is the PS3 still $300? You would sell a lot more if it was $3. You would make it up in volume sales!! Also you would sell a lot of Playstation T-shirts and we would go to Playstation concerts if you just gave away the games.
If you don’t do all of these things I am buying a 360 and Sony will crumble as a result. HEED MY WORDS!!!

Very unhappy about the early update, since it prevented me from purchasing two copies of Little Big Planet Vita at the sale price for our Vitas….Sad Face. If I had know it would be out the store so early I would have purchased it sooner.

+ dominiumundi on December 24th, 2012 at 3:07 pm said:

OK ok I always complain about these bad updates .. . . this time is not different . . .

because:

Since the UPDATE of the STORE it looks with a lot of mistakes (mistakes in the prices, info, I cant find some content, or magically dissapear games or DLC . . . etc) I konw that it looks so attractive but please isnt functional

You make mistakes in the promos . . . I spent 61usd in the thanksgiving week and . . . I don´t have my 10usd gift yet…. how much time i have to wait?

the info in this PSN update is wrong, so why you launch info with mistakes

and finally YES we are angry about th EUROPE content because is amazing, and in NA we only got 1 game

why sony! why!!! make good choices and give us great content . . . psone, ps2 and ps3 . . . and vita of course

upload ps3 games not only new, there are to many good old games . . . where is heavely sword by example!!!
upload psone, ps2, psp games if they wont have a remake treatment . . . SH4. Dark Cloud, Clock Tower, Haunting Ground etc

and vita . . . just please good games with good offers . . .

by the way . . . if you think that I only complain . . . well I want to tell you that I spent the last night 112usd.

so thanks but we want more°!!!!!

@ sesyjon,

Did you not read last weeks update? They have been saying all along that this week’s update would go live on Monday, what do you expect, people to work on Christmas? Geeze, use your head a little.

Just to save you the trouble, next week’s update will go live on Monday too in case you are surprised why people aren’t working on New Year’s Day.

I know it’s on the PS store today but I think it’s horrible that Oddworld Munch’s Odyssey HD is not Included on this blog post.
It seems that Oddworld Inhabitants and Just Add Water can’t catch a break. They are a small development team and Sony just screwed them over without mentioning them on this post.

+ duke301 on December 24th, 2012 at 8:57 pm said:

@113, same here. When it said all DLC, I too thought it meant all DLC, but none of the extra tracks, and I think some of the vehicles, weren’t included. It should have said ‘select DLC’ or something like that instead. That way, we at least wouldn’t think we were ripped off. On the up side, however, it is cross-play compatible with the Vita, which is always a nice benefit.

134

+ ChrisMichaels04 on December 24th, 2012 at 9:06 pm said:

@121…..so let me get this straight….for months all ive heard is complaints about late store updates. So SONY gives us an advanced warning special 1 day early store update….and people are still complaining that now its too early? And as far as the complaints about wanting to buy a game from last weeks promotion…why are people waiting for the last minute to buy the game they wanted? Those games were up all week. You snooze…you lose. Not Sony’s fault you waited all week to finally get a PSN card. Come on people, the excuses and complaints need to stop. Happy Holidays.

+ musicman182 on December 24th, 2012 at 9:22 pm said:

I’m interested in Mafia II, but I feel like I’d be better off buying the Greatest Hits version that comes with all of the DLC. Otherwise I’d be paying 10 dollars more on the store. Also interested in Papo & Yo but I’ve heard very mixed reviews on that one.

Mortal Kombat not a Bad Price! But it’s too bad u didn’t mark down the Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition! If so i would of so grabbed the Komplete Edition if u marked it down also. Aww,

And I hope you quickly refund all the people who bought Unit 13 for $17 before changing it again back down to $13 like my buddy.

+ BrianC6234 on December 24th, 2012 at 10:10 pm said:

People need to stop complaining about what Europe gets. The problem doesn’t seem to be on Sony’s end. It’s the game publishers. Maybe you should start demanding from those people they give U.S. gamers the same 50% off of games like Hitman and Far Cry 3. I don’t see why they do those deals in Europe and not here but I won’t blame Sony. If they want me to buy those games they can give us 50% off for PS Plus. Until then I won’t buy either unless they’re on sale for $39.99 or lower.


139

+ DigiOps on December 24th, 2012 at 10:15 pm said:

@133 I’m happy about Munch’s Oddysee. :D Kinda wish it hit vita before Stranger’s Wrath, but given how much time I don’t have on my hands these days, what’s already available via Plus is pretty strong. I’ve got about an hour or so a day to play games, so I’ll be occupied for a while. My PS3′s playlist is piling up. I haven’t even finished Infamous 2 yet. o.O

I was wondering, is there still a way to find Playstation Exclusive games ? I tried to search for those titles but didn’t see that section/genre anymore after the store was updated.
If it is gone, I would appreciate bringing it back.
It is an easy way to see those games which can only be played on PS.

Thanks

Comparing the sales plus users have been given with those of their EU counterparts I’m done with Sony buying myself a gaming pc after the holidays.

I guess it’s best reflected in how the blog as a whole is handled here is another week of spelling errors and typos on the most important update during the week. It reflects badly on you guys and probably explains why I can’t get the service I feel I deserve
