Seems like the free RagDoll Kung Fu is US only as I’m in Canada and it’s still showing as costing 9,99$… :(

That sucks…

But hey, always glad to see PSOne Classics being added. Make sure to keep that up!

2 weeks straight of PSone games just like Dec. I bet we’ll go 4 and a half months without any again now.

@101..That’s true, but lets try to survive till we get more

Free game you say? Thanks! :)

Zen Pinball $9.99? Bought.

**PSone RPGs please!!!

I’m kinda ticked off that I paid far Rag Doll. It’s good for everyone who didn’t buy it though. I wish you guys would have chose a different game. lol

Duck_Turkin said:

May 14th, 2:17 pm

The only that would make this better would be if my PS3 could actually log on to the PSN network today.

echogridlock said:

May 14th, 2:17 pm

No you have to understand the time frame is horrible. If Rag Doll Kung Fu was dropped in price a year from now, I would have no complaints. But this marketing plan with sprint wasn’t decided yesterday. These things usually take a while to plan. So Sony to make a quick buck to cover there end says lets sell without warning to consumers before are promotion to get what chumps we can. I would be willing to bet they knew of this before they released the game.

Hi Sony! I love you!

Just to echo what others have already said: PS1 games are very nice. Keep including them in future updates, and you’ll have very grateful consumers. =)

MGSTigerFox said:

May 14th, 2:18 pm

I’ve been thinking of getting Rag Doll Kung Fu – and now I definitely will!

I’m very impressed with all the updates this week – I hope that such awesome work on add-ons doesn’t cease since there’s been so much productivity lately! Here’s what I’m planning on getting:

• MotorStorm Pacific Rift Livery Pack – heck yeah.
• HOME – New free apartment. Heck yeah!
• Rock Band 2 – Stricken and Stupify! Heck yeah!
• MAG Gameplay trailer – oh holy goodness yes.

I’m excited. That, and tomorrow, I’m upgrading my PS3 from a 60GB hard drive to a super sweet 250GB Hard Drive (once my 16GB USB flash drive comes in so I can backup all the game data and game save data via the backup utility.)

I’ll be re-downloading a TON of stuff tomorrow night, (and all throughout the day) for sure!

Thanks so much for making RDKF free! I wanted to get it so bad!
I am getting Motorstorm next month.. so keep coming w/ DLCs

JKar275 said:

May 14th, 2:19 pm

Thanks for the free Rag Doll Kung Fu game Grace! I also like the MAG trailer too.

Can we get some video trailers for the following games:
1) Dark Void
2) Borderlands
3) Aliens: Colonial Marines

For the Video Store on PSN, can we get some Star Trek films and TV shows please?

Wow a free game plus more ps1 games? Thats awesome. I knew that when i pulled up the psblog comments there’d be nothing but whining. Anyways thank you sony and sprint. Will there be anymore pleasant surprises I hope?

Xoonaka said:

May 14th, 2:22 pm

Wow, I buy a crappy ass game that isn’t nearly as interesting or fulfilling as I expected it to be, and now it’s being given away for free.

…ugh. Maybe had I enjoyed the game I wouldn’t have been so upset. But damn. Like a slap in the face.

FredNation said:

May 14th, 2:23 pm

Does this mean your going to be partnering with other company’s? And thanks for the update.

ExPresident said:

May 14th, 2:23 pm

I’m glad theres a demo for Zen Pinball, I’ll probably buy it anyway tho. I think all games should have a demo but meh.

Seems like a decent update. I’m not big on either PS1 game so probably won’t purchase them but I like that they are showing up, and two updates in a row.

Keep up the good work. Also a free game rocks!

OverlordLaharl said:

May 14th, 2:23 pm

People… just create an US account and DL the game there, not that hard you know.

jasong1011 said:

May 14th, 2:23 pm

like everyone else has said that bought the game before today, come on. we gave you are money and now i feel like you guys have basically stolen that from me. i’m hesitant to purchase psn games in the future because who knows if i’ll waste my money again!! let sprint give everyone else who bought the game $10 into their wallet to buy something else. come on sony, stop stealing from me.

glody said:

May 14th, 2:25 pm

Anyone Play the pinball game yet?? How is it?? Worth $10??

Anti-Steven said:

May 14th, 2:25 pm

Free Rag Doll Kung Fu is cool, but when stuff like this happens it makes me feel cheated for actually buying it. You really should consider giving the people who did buy something as consolation. It doesn’t have to be something major, just something. I might have to seriously consider not buying PSN games day one and wait for a few months until I’m sure that it won’t just be given away. Pay more attention to the people who support you the most (a general business rule is that 20% of your customers give you 80% of your business, remember that).

User_cl said:

May 14th, 2:25 pm

I signed in two chime in with my two cents… i think its cool that they are offering a totally free full game, but having just spent ten dollars on this game less than a month ago i feel thoroughly ripped off. Its inevitable that a game will go down in price EVENTUALLY but to make it completely free after only a month is just rediculous in my opinion. I bought the PAIN addon today and i actually had to stop and pause and decide if i wanted it, who knows it may be free in a few months.

RedSkull73 said:

May 14th, 2:26 pm

Since Sprint does not do business in Canada, I doubt it will be free in Canada.

Meaning if you cannot see the US video store in the PSN Store you will not see the game for free.

KidCommando said:

May 14th, 2:27 pm

to all the crybabies who bought Rag Doll Kung Fu and somehow feel ripped off:

please pull your panties up and use your noodles. Early adopters will usually pay more money.

Iphone: first released $500, next month $400
Power Tool: bought for $70, next week it comes with $30 rebate
Grand Slam Breakfast: yesterday $5.99, tomorrow FREE for everyone in the US.

That is how SALES and PROMOTIONS work. So you don’t ever feel gypped again, just wait a minimum of one year before purchasing ANYTHING. That way you will never pay the full price and you won’t ruin your favorite bib by blowing bubble snots all over it.

FFVIIguy said:

May 14th, 2:29 pm

Fantastic update!

User_cl said:

May 14th, 2:29 pm

I had to go ahead and double post to add that im tired of Sony and other companies trying to nickel and dime us consumers so much lately with things like “add-ons”…. i put that in parenthesis because these days they make you pay for content thats ALREADY on the disc! These companies sit there wondering why piracy is so rampant these days…. is it because people are ruthless and greedy and want everything for nothing? No, its because we are tired of paying out the rear for unpolished games and/or sub-par DLC that should have OBVIOUSLY been free…. Skate 2 Camera Pack, anyone?

EvoAnubis said:

May 14th, 2:30 pm

That makes me mad. I bought this on day one, and now it’s free to everyone. I should be able to get my paper back.

Tr3p1dat10n said:

May 14th, 2:30 pm

Free PSN game, Thanks Sprint!!! :)

Trevor-Kuch said:

May 14th, 2:31 pm

No free game for us Canadians. BOO! Pinball is a blast though!

Ghost_Shrimp said:

May 14th, 2:32 pm

How can you people that already bought Rag doll kung fu really be that mad? It’s only 10 bucks and you got the game before anybody else.

I could understand if you bought a PS3 or something and it dropped in price the day after, making you lose $100+ dollars. But this is only ten bucks… I mean come on.

Xuchilbara said:

MadmanEU said:

May 14th, 2:33 pm

Of course you can’t actually deliver this same FREE deal on RagDoll to Canada…that would go against Sony’s “**** Canada” policy.

ChaseHammerJ said:

May 14th, 2:33 pm

this is so much crap. i just purchased Rag Doll Kung Fu not even 2 days ago. and now its free. I want a refund :(

@139 you are so right.

MK24ever said:

May 14th, 2:34 pm

Thanks Sprint and Sony, I was just to buy Pinball ZEN and I ended with a nice bonus, and thinking I was about to buy RDKF last week…

jasong1011 said:

May 14th, 2:34 pm

wow. i’m not going to say anything to your comment except that i’m sure sony would love it if everyone waited a year before buying any game. i don’t mind that you’re getting it for free i just do mind that i spent my hard earned money on what was a free product. seriously have some respect for your fellow ps3 gamers who supported this game at the beginning.

NeoUltima said:

May 14th, 2:36 pm

Whoa now this is an update! PS1 games, Bionic Commando @ an irresistible price, and Sprint giving us Rag Doll Kung Fu for FREE! :o

IceColdKilla44 said:

May 14th, 2:36 pm

Niiice Great update. Thank you sony!

Glad to see you guys are putting a lot more PS1 classics on there. Finally all 3 Spyros!

have a special request for 2 PS1 classics that I would gladly pay for: Tomba and Tomba II. Those games were amazing.

Of course I’d also love to see MGS, Resident Evil 1,2,and 3, and Final Fantasy 7 as well, but otherwise great update.

Thanks again Sony. You guys are the best.

echogridlock said:

May 14th, 2:38 pm

The sad part is Sony just reported a 1 Billion dollar loss. They need our money now more than ever… That would actually explain this.
