Excuse me but Bloodrayne has been gone from the game collection for a while now. What is the real game that will be leaving??

Also just a heads up Rachet and clank, Infamous 2 and little big planet 2 has been in the collection for some time they should be leaving soon. They have been there since June its disappointing to see them in the collection this long. For the people who wanted those games they have already been downloaded. It would be nice to see 3 new Exclusive full games like.

Demons souls
Heavy Rain
Uncharted 3

To replace the other 3

@149

+ saab01

those titles are their ‘legacy’ collection or something like that. morgan says they will be staying on the roster for a good long time, as some sort of ‘incentive’ for new buyers of the ps3 to go with ps+

so the only games that are worth playing and buying the plus membership will be there for a while, if you beat them and need to move on, don’t hold your breath on ps+ because all the rest of the games are gonna be bargain bin and you’re better off spending the money on a full game instead of the rental service.

HOWEVER, if you got 50 bucks to blow, the plus service is still great to keep. if i had more money i’d get the plus simply because of the deals offered and the backup of my saves.

Stay away from PS Vita version of Motorstorm RC Complete Edition. It will download but not install. Either directly from the PSN Store or via Content Manager and a PS3. You’ll spend an hour on the phone with support and not get any!!!! They do not know how to fix the C2-12383-7 error you will get with every try, they act like they’ve never heard of it, but a quick Google search will show that this has been happening with multiple games over the past YEAR!!!!!!

Aww, can you guys please do the sale for LBP Vita again soon? I just got a psn card for it….and a vita.
Also, why update the sale before Christmas? I’m not saying you guys should have updated it on Christmas, but to just leave the sale on there for a few more days after Christmas. I mean you’ll probably have more buyers since it’s, you know, Christmas. So why take some of the sales off..?

The store design is still absolutely horrid.

Simpsons discount is the best thing but because I downloaded it for free when I had a 1 month trial I’m unable to use the discount so PS+ continues to be an annoyance and Sony continues to lose favor. Won’t matter will NEVER buy another game system again anyways.

You know whats awesome? I bought a Vita a few days ago then I credited my account with 50 dollars with the intent to buy Liberations and LBP Vita but I had to go work. Then I came back from work and it wasn’t on sale anymore. You know what else is awesome? It wasn’t a Tuesday Night. I credited the account specifically for those two games you pulled the sale far earlier than you EVER do.

The most awesome thing of all though? Why can’t I access my PS Vita Save files. Why the hell are they on the card. This is unacceptable. How unacceptable you ask? It is real simple. I am not your usual customer. I literally bought a Playstation on the launch date of the N64 saving up allowance and trading in my Sega Genesis probably the only instance I have ever traded in games. I have literally bought every system you have ever released and hundreds of games for said systems.

+ ShiranaiJittai on December 26th, 2012 at 1:57 am said:

I will state again I am NOT your usual customer. I work in the industry. I also review games and frequent various forums under multiple pseudonyms my comments and reviews actually carry weight. I might return my Vita tomorrow and no I am not joking not being able to backup my saves? That might be the last straw. I don’t want to backup the whole game I want to backup my saves. If you lose me as a customer you aren’t going to lose 1 customer you will lose tens of thousands of customers. From my words alone. You need to RETHINK EVERYTHING to do with what you can and cannot do with a VITA YESTERDAY.

I have defended tooth and nail EVERY BS damage control nonsense you have pulled on ALL of your customers because what a few hackers did. I have never hacked my systems excluding a mod chip for the original playstation to play japanese games. You are punishing ALL of your customers for what a FEW people are doing. We aren’t taking it anymore. We aren’t ASKING anymore. All of the Big 3 are spiraling in their own way. All of you are screwing up left and right. You my favorite of them? Are screwing up the most. People talk about when a PS4 is going to come out? You have to get your act together before you can even think of that. You need to stop punishing all of your customers for what a few people are doing I am sooooooo far past asking this.

+ TwinDad on December 26th, 2012 at 9:25 am said:

@ShiranaiJittai

While not everybody comes to the blog, I do agree that if they are going to break they established dates of store update they should have put on the sale page that the prices are good through XX/XX/XX date just like other retail establishments. However you being in the industry should have known that store do not work on Christmas and new year for the most part and should have anticipated an early or perhaps later update.

You can backup the game saves with the content manager to PC. In addition you can use the content manager on the Vita itself to copy the game saves to the cloud. According to your PSID you do have PS+ which entitles you to 1GB of cloud store for your Vita.

In addition I weep for the industry if you choose to use “do you know who I am” as a threat instead of asking the thousands followers you have for help to find out if you can get a way to work out your issues.

+ PrimeroIncognito on December 26th, 2012 at 1:29 pm said:

@ShiranaiJittai

LIAR.

Anyone who works in the industry would have known ahead of time that the new release/store update schedule would be altered for the holiday season.

But it was this statement that really exposed you as a phony:

“If you lose me as a customer you aren’t going to lose 1 customer you will lose tens of thousands of customers. From my words alone.”

Not one single person has that kind of pull. You’re nothing more than a silly troll making empty threats. On top of that, nobody would be as upset over this as you are pretending to be unless they’re the most spoiled brat of all time. The money you’ve (maybe) spent doesn’t give you any credibility either. Only trolls use that excuse. Many of us have spent thousands of dollars over the years on this hobby, myself included, since the mid-80s on Atari 7800 and NES games. So what?


191

+ PrimeroIncognito on December 26th, 2012 at 1:38 pm said:

@ShiranaiJittai

On top of that, you didn’t lose a single thing. You’ve still got your $50 credit. You can use it on anything. You can still buy the same games and just spend more now, or wait for another sale or a price drop later. It’s not the end of the world. (Hey wait, don’t reviewers get advance review copies of games? Hmm…)

And it’s your fault for procrastinating anyway. Not Sony’s fault. You had 6 days. Sony announced more than once that the dates of the updates were being moved to Monday for the final two weeks of the year, due to two consecutive holidays falling on Tuesdays. They didn’t deceive you. If you really go ranting all over the web about that, you’ll only end up making an ass of yourself. Oops. Too late.

You’re either just an ultra troll, or, if you really are a reviewer, you’ve let your ego become inflated to extreme proportions, became lost on the concept of sensibility, and now you’ve got your head planted firmly up your rear.

+ Ryumoau on December 27th, 2012 at 12:53 pm said:

@179 i agree. Sony not allowing us to manually access Vita game save data to back up is just plain ridiculous. Vita owners shouldn’t have to have PS Plus to store save data in the cloud. That right should be afforded to all Vita owners.

Sony is just so backwards thinking at times. Not as much as Nintendo though, thankfully.

Also, about resident evil 6 discount. I can almost guarantee if you did that kinda thing on release, even just $10 off on release. If you could get that kind of agreement with the developers alot…ALOT of people would preorder digital copys over going to bestbuy or gamestop. The psn preorder option is still nice. And i use it, but if bestbuy or gamestop offers something more…gotta get the most for my money. I know its a work in progress, you have to work with developers or whoever owns the games. And its getting better, i can’t wait to see the day when i buy everything digital cheaper or with more incentive then gamestop gives me. Because, honestly i hate going to gamestop i avoid it at all costs.
