Not so bad this time. Personally, I would’ve loved to have seen the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 demo up, but nothing that a pseudo-PSN won’t fix. At any rate, don’t let the complainers get you down, especially since there’s a store update out before 7pm EDT!

Finaldeath1689 said:

August 3rd, 3:52 pm

This blows, i JUST bought Fat Princess a few weeks ago.

PHILLYD_1230 said:

August 3rd, 3:52 pm

They are finally putting up up mw2 demo after a year wow and is that earth worm jim demo just for ps+ subscribers?

Finaldeath1689 said:

August 3rd, 3:53 pm

Oh, i forgot to add.

Isn’t a bit late to release a MW2 demo lol. Everyone interested in the game already has it.

King-Nicholas said:

August 3rd, 3:55 pm

Every update reminds me of how stupid I was to waste $50 on PS Plus. Red Faction was released over a year ago, so odds are that if you haven’t played it by now, you have no interest. Also, Critter Crunch? That’s the best you could give us? What an embarrassment…

gettinmoney662 said:

August 3rd, 3:55 pm

Look at the way you guys act every week. Pitiful. Sony should hire me to respond to comments so I could personally put each and every one of you in your place, but I’d probably get fired after a week.

awsome_robot said:

August 3rd, 3:55 pm

Wow, i thought ps+ was supposed to be an evolving service… in a good way, not taking an opportunity to buy stuff for cheap. My guess is they ran out of stuff they could put for cheap and so giving us a bi-weekly update it would look as if though we are getting a lot. So instead of getting 2 weeks worth of content we’d be getting 1 to 1.5 weeks worth of content. This isn’t good. Also thank you for telling us on the same day we’re expecting content that we won’t get content, very professional on sony’s part.

pgsdi said:

August 3rd, 3:57 pm

I now regret my plus subscription, What a terrible joke, I though we were to get new things EVERY WEEK. SONY you are seriously pissing me off

Seiven said:

August 3rd, 3:57 pm

uh…8/10 is next week…today is 8/3

Seiven said:

August 3rd, 3:58 pm

ahhh never mind I see those are highlights for next week

saintaqua said:

August 3rd, 3:58 pm

Wow! I’m impressed. Christian music on Rock Band? I never cared for “Jesus Freak”, but I am really happy that Rock Band is indeed branching out in all directions. How about some more?
Entertaining Angels was always a favorite of mine as a kid.

I’d also like to see Rock Band do some Celtic music too.

August 3rd, 3:59 pm

meh update, other than the LBP dlc, still haven’t seen any reason to spring for Playstation Plus

j-cart said:

August 3rd, 3:59 pm

Is Qore still available with a purchase of PSN+? Also wondering about the extra 3 month aswell. I just notice that August is month 12 for my Qore subscription.

King-Nicholas said:

August 3rd, 4:04 pm

@105 The August issue of Qore will be next week.

BeerManMike said:

August 3rd, 4:04 pm

Weird i was expecting an update, not a pile of junk.

ForgiveMyAim said:

August 3rd, 4:05 pm

PS+ not even a theme

August 3rd, 4:06 pm

Sweet Will be picking up some games this week for sure.

Please Sony keep the sales coming

ProperKROE said:

August 3rd, 4:12 pm

Makoto is possibly the best piece of add-on DLC in the entire Playstation store.

ihatereading369 said:

August 3rd, 4:14 pm

Okay update… By the way Grace you meant the August episode of Qore for PS Plus subscribers right (instead of July)?

AceBeeDee said:

August 3rd, 4:16 pm

what is the blazblue dlc?

berzirk said:

August 3rd, 4:17 pm

If I’m Marcus Rivers, right now I’m pissssed! Haa haa. Maybe he’s only working a couple hours a week due to labor laws and such.

texas_ride said:

August 3rd, 4:21 pm

will 2nd lap be free next week for current owners? or just early for ps+?
great update, too, thanks.

Korlithiel said:

August 3rd, 4:22 pm

Seems like a good update for the sale, and a terrible update in terms of content for either system on top of now PS1 classic.

Ibrahack said:

August 3rd, 4:23 pm

another weak update for PSP! can’t believe this!

Blkant said:

August 3rd, 4:25 pm

We want the Demon’s Souls content that wasn’t released in the US. Like the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme, the avatars, etc…


ozzmosis1981 said:

August 3rd, 4:25 pm

not much for me this week looking to next week can’t wait

ps3 trumps 360

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

August 3rd, 4:26 pm

Please give us PSP Go owners FF Crisis Core!!!!!

OldKai said:

August 3rd, 4:28 pm

Plus Updates bi-weekly now with a lower quality selection of content? whatever.

Britton1207 said:

August 3rd, 4:28 pm

@the community – this is, by and large, a whine free week. Thanks everyone!

@Grace – Once again you update and run. Are you ever going to stay and respond to our posts? Staying online for an hour or so after the weekly update would greatly increase your reputation with the community.

@Grace + the update team – Awesome update! Thanks for Earthworm Jim! And I thought it was going to be $15 so $10 is so much more awesome. I also picked up Pixel Junk Shooter. However, what’s with the PS+ content? Now, i don’t expect to recoup my money in full every week, but you could at least throw us a bone! Granted, that would just attract the “OMG! What a waste of $50. All I got was (X) this week?!?!?!!!??111?!!” crowd. lol.

RyuuNoSekai said:

August 3rd, 4:39 pm

wait… they’re charging for the japanese voices for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift? wth?

CD6405 said:

August 3rd, 4:45 pm

Kinda funny that even though I have a subscription to Qore (which I paid for) I have to wait longer than PS+ members.

mrdeadhead said:

August 3rd, 4:49 pm

Earthworm Jim?! how’d that slip past me?!
hell yea!

Psikorps said:

August 3rd, 4:50 pm

I have a annual sub to Qore, aswell as a PS+ sub…we wait the same ammount of time.

The Aug issue of Qore is available on the 10th for everyone.

DanteRising said:

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions
Metal Gear Acid 1 and 2

Has anyone checked out the European PlayStation plus…I like there format far better by just telling the users what they’ll be getting for the next two months but thanks anyway US

HazeBlaze said:

August 3rd, 5:13 pm

PSN has seemed a bit slow on releases w/ the exception of Deathspank :-(… and I’m pretty anxious for a reason to plunk my money down on PSN+, but I want my sub to start on the first month with killer content. A guarantee into the DC Universe beta would do it! Take my money Sony!

Jefe518 said:

August 3rd, 5:13 pm

man this update IS WEAK

learn some stuff from xbl… im a ps3 fanboy, but come on…

Sindred said:

August 3rd, 5:13 pm

Darkrai87 said:

August 3rd, 5:13 pm

Will all the LBP1 DLC still be up next year since LBP2 DLC be out next year? I still want to buy them all.

HazeBlaze said:

I was a big fan of Earthworm Jim back in the day tho… so Earthworm Jim w/ trophy support can have my money today :-)
