Just wanted to add, that why does the firmware team always pick tuesday with the store to update? It’s mandatory and you can’t get anything until you wait the 3 days for the bugs to show on the firmware.

Seems crazy to not wait until Thursday to release firmware, not Tuesday.

Greetings, I’m planning to buy the infinite balls mode for Breakquest: Extra Evolution so I don’t have to worry about losing the balls, specially when I lend my game to my cousins. So here is the question: When the game starts it says that if the save data is deleted all your balls purchased will be lost, that would be the case with infinite balls mode too right? I mean, if I decide to delete the game then my purchase would be lost?

Thank you for your attention.

Don’t understand why people are excited for the Beyond demo… don’t get me wrong I can’t wait for the game to come out. But it seems like the type of game where a demo will do more to harm your experience with the game than anything else… also doesn’t seem like a demo could possibly do it justice.

So glad to see Rain live finally, will play once I get home – can’t wait.

Nice update. Happily surprised by the Catherine sale! I have a copy of the CE I want to keep sealed, so now I can finally play the game without opening it. Valhalla Knights going free was also a welcome addition :).

Now to wait for those, plus the Battlefield 4 beta and Amalur to finish downloading.

Thanks PS Store team!

So, uh, anyone else having issues with the NHL Gamecenter App? We downloaded it and updated it and got an error message telling us to restart the app. Restarted the app – same thing. Uninstalled the app and downloaded it again – same thing. Considering we bought this system so we could use the NHL Gamcenter and MLB apps, this is rather frustrating.

The new layout for the Playstation Plus Free Games section sucks.

It used to have smaller icons in a grid that I can easily skim. It was also possible to see which if the items I already had “purchased”.

Now the list has these huge icons in one long row that scrolls left-to-right. It certainly looks ‘spiffy’ but it is not practival. I cannot skim this easily and also and more importantly it does not indcate which of the items I already purchased/downloaded.

The layout for ‘New Arrivals’ section still looks like the ‘Free Games’ section used to look like. That is the layout I want!

Can we please get the old layout back. This one sucks as it leaves me really no way to check which of the free games I already downloaded/purchased.

+ pers1m0ny on October 1st, 2013 at 5:21 pm said:

Oh yeah.. another reason why the new layout sucks (for the ‘Free Games PS Plus Section): no way to ‘Filter’ the content to only PS3 (which is all I care about).

So here’s in a nutshell what’s wrong with this layout:
1) huge icons => no easy skimming only 3 items visible at once
2) no ‘purchased’ indicator (you now have to open each individual item so see if you purchased it already)
3) no ‘Add Filter’ or ‘Sort’.

Why mess with a reasonable ok design? Not saying the previous layout can’t be improved upon, I’m sure it can, but the new one is really useless compared to the old layout.
