So I’ve been playing x-com :enemy unknown, and every now and then the graphics will glitch out, first time it did this I thought my ps3 was on the fritz but then I backed out and everything was fine, Was just wondering though has anyone else experienced any glitches like this with the game, I don’t think anything is wrong with my ps3 I’v had the ps3 for two years now,

Hey Morgan. Awesome update! Loving XCom right now. I was wondering, if I buy The walking dead season pass, will that convert over when they release it for Vita?

How can I get Machinarium for free on PS Vita, as advertised on this blog on June 3.

@309 I read through the blog and it doesn’t say anywhere it was for vita. Morgan said he thinks it may be and would get back to us on it but I don’t believe it said anywhere it was for both systems.

To Sony Reps:

I wanted to thank the company for allowing great titles to be available as free digital content.

I just finished downloading Uncharted 3 as part of the June 11th PSPlus update and was eager and excited to play this game; when I finished installing (which took forever) I encountered several glitches with the game that were dully reported in the Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 3 Technical Issues forum on the Playstation Community site. My problems were posted on a thread created by a Naughty Dog developer.

(provided next is the link to said forum with my reply on it http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/UNCHARTED-3-Drake-s-Deception/Performance-Issues-Post-details-here/td-p/36884789/page/17).

Basically cutscenes slow to a crawl several times per cutscene, music skips during gameplay and makes the game totally unplayable.

If Naughy Dog wont take responsibility for their product, at least Sony should take into consideration the kind of products they are releasing to their customers. I would be relieved if someone takes to investigate further; and also take note if other Plus members report these issues.

Thank you sincerelly

Then it was probably a mistake.

Have Downloaded Uncharted 3 twice now and had no luck after the install.
other games like tekken have downloaded fine but am having no luck with UC3
Any Suggestions to why after the install it vanishes completely ?


316

+ klassymike on June 15th, 2013 at 4:05 pm said:

I really don’t understand why people are having such a hard time downloading Uncharted 3.

1. Download the Free to play multi-player pack, along with whatever language packs you want.

2. Download the Single player campaign

3. Download either the 2D or 3D movie pack (depending on what type of TV you have)

The single player campaign is considered an “Add-On” to the multi-player pack.

Open the multi-player game and you will see the single player campaign in the upper left corner.

Hi, anyone from SONY can explain why Uncharted don’t have Portuguese Language pack? The Disk R1 has this content… but on PSN+ don’t …

I saw the comment about people wanting to see RPG’s I agree completely.. i would also love to see some beta testing RPG’s offered and also some RPG’s for vita.. I mean i just bought the thing and so far I have only been able to find rpgs for ps1 mainly to play on it. I mean granted i do like some of them and i have already bought them but truly I would love to see more vita downloads that are RPG’s and I also think the genre search needs to be tweaked a bit considering when you search RPG’s you find the games like Final Fantasy tactics in it which are soo not RPG’s they are title cross over strategy games. I would love to see some really awesome Playstation RPG’s when the game first comes out. I mean that is my primary reason I play games. I like things that take thought and keep you hooked with a good story and let you explore and think for yourself a bit. I would love to see an older game series added to the next update as well, Star Ocean, I mean I know they arent new or anything but I know man people who love older games like that, and having it downloadable for vita and ps3 would be great.

+ Phoenix32778 on June 17th, 2013 at 4:45 am said:

i would really like to see more PS+ games for free to play for VITA like I said in my last message I am into RPG’s heavily and this type seems to get shafted for action shooter dribble. Just saying. If you like those games fine but does every game on the plus have to be that type?


320

+ Keltic-Rage on June 17th, 2013 at 6:37 am said:

I’m brand new to Playstation and I have a question. I was under the impression from the Sony Playstation site that one of the benefit of Ps+ was that I would receive twelve games for free? Is there a list of these twelve games?

I can’t download the uncharted 3 single
player why

I was going to buy U3 GOTY edition after fully beating the game but now I’m not so sure. I spent hours hunting down all the trophies and I’m just missing the co-op one for the plat. THERE’S not a SINGLE co-op mode included? WHAT?!
I got PS+ a few days ago because I saw U3 was free to play on this page : http://us.playstation.com/psn/playstation-plus/
No mention of anything else.
Will the co-op be addressed? Like a single mode to try?? So frustrating and looking over other forums I’m not the only one.
Please reply.

Downloaded and finished U3 in 2-3 days. Awesome game, quite an adventure.
Now I’ll probably buy the first 2.
Great update.
Would like a sport or racing game in a future update.
