ZariV said:

August 3rd, 5:30 pm

I might have bought Earthworm Jim but my PS3 got the yellow light of death and for some reason Sony wants to charge me $150 to get it fixed.

HitMAn4457 said:

August 3rd, 5:32 pm

Another crappy update, wow sony is on a roll eh?Probably gonna have to wait even longer for the mafia 2 demo bacause of your playstation pluss horstshi*t.

PROPHET07 said:

August 3rd, 5:49 pm

Is it possible to get techmo football for psp go. You seem to put alot of good downloadable games on ps3, when they should also play on the psp go. Maybe a decent playing shooter like mag or cod on a psp.

gochewie said:

August 3rd, 5:51 pm

Thanks for the heads up about what is getting removed from PS+ next week. Was there a similar notice about the price change in Fat Pricess: Fat Roles? PS+ had it for $3.99 for about two weeks and then it disappeared.

NicHolas3456 said:

August 3rd, 6:10 pm

why is a mw2 demo coming out when the game has been out for almost 9 months?

@158 that is the PC version of section 8 . Where is this months episode of QORE for PS+ SUBSCRIBERS ? its not on my dl list or in the ps+ section .

Psikorps said:

August 3rd, 6:38 pm

The Aug Qore episode will be out for everyone Aug 10th.

kyuubi_clone said:

August 3rd, 6:39 pm

to me Grace answers the most irrelevant questions on this forum. while the real issues gets buried in all the chatter. many many serious questions get ignored while the simplest stupid questions get answered. customer service at its best.

BigDaddyLurch said:

August 3rd, 6:48 pm

Wow…this really blows…granted, Earthworm Jim was the bomb back in the day, but it can’t touch Vagrant Story…how many people need to ask for Vagrant Story here in North America before Sony finally gets off the glue and slides it over this side o’ the Atlantic 0.o

seancon93 said:

August 3rd, 6:53 pm

So Items listed as “Last Chance”, what exactly does that mean? Are they losing Plus status, or being permanently removed from the PS Store?

strack94 said:

August 3rd, 6:53 pm

alright first, an MW2 demo? the game has been out for just under a year now slightly confused.

Number two, can Sony maybe hold off on the lackluster store updates and focus on firmware updates? I could see time like this being spent elsewhere like possible allowing us to voice chat cross game?

Just saying Sony im becoming impatient. Especially with features that are under such High demand yet no word of their development.

Santesyu said:

August 3rd, 7:02 pm

nothing of interest to me personally ;3 I don’t expect not anything to tempt me into getting playstation plus untill probably mid next year.. ;/ sony do one free movie rental a month and iam sold LoL. What u doing now aint workin.

S-E-G said:

August 3rd, 7:07 pm

i have an idea, why don’t you push plus releases monthly and call it qore plus

Mwezi-Tribe said:

August 3rd, 7:08 pm

kinda super late with the COD MW 2 and umm go Infinity Ward !!
although did like the flower demo :p

glitched18x said:

August 3rd, 7:14 pm

AstralCannibal21 said:

August 3rd, 7:31 pm

Earthworm Jim is here! About time. I’m so glad this game is back in all it’s greatness. Can’t wait until the Mafia II demo next week!

seancon93 said:

August 3rd, 7:35 pm

@167 (i.e. Myself) I figured it out :P

MrBob2k7 said:

August 3rd, 7:38 pm

After one month Playstation Plus is already going backwards. Going bi-weekly and content is paper thin. Glad I had a good first month, as Sony has decided to scale back this service after they get new users. Not sure how Sony is evolving Plus. Looks the opposite to me.

SGTquig said:

August 3rd, 7:49 pm

So, what are the perks of the PSN+ agian? I’m starting to regret paying $50 for it when the only thing worth bragging about is the fact that I got Critter Crunch for free. What happened to the “exclusive content”? Kane & Lynche 2 demo was ok, even though I never liked the series and the one free “rental” (if you will) a month PSone and Mini game is getting annoying. If you can answer this, when are we going to see real content on the PSN+?

PrinceCloud said:

August 3rd, 7:57 pm

Can you put a variety of avatar like the other consoles does,we only get like 3 avatars a week and there are all from street fighter, come one Sony.

Velzorn said:

August 3rd, 8:01 pm

Can we please get more Fat Princess avatars, preferably avatars of the new fat roles (Pirate, Ninja and Giant).

Also how about a dynamic Fat Princess theme with the red team and blue team carrying the opposite princesses back and fourth with custom Fat Princess icons. Seems like easy money.

TripleA_14 said:

August 3rd, 8:25 pm

When are the God of War 3 costumes gonna be available for purchase!? Its been nearly half a year since that game came out, and I want access to those other costumes!

Does Sony NOT want our money? Honestly, there are a bunch of eBay users making a mint selling those pre-order codes, its ridiculous! Just put them out already!!


August 3rd, 8:32 pm

dont Buy psn movies. =Warning= don’t lose your money!

ZildjianKX said:

August 3rd, 8:43 pm

Shouldn’t the Trine: Path to New Dawn be free like it is for the PC? The game was already expensive.

sTaB_u_N_uR_i said:

August 3rd, 9:03 pm


I like the way you think sir.

also, red faction and PJracres are missing from the store.

(its not in my PS+ section)

Dankandsticky said:

August 3rd, 9:10 pm

Will Pixeljunk Racers be a free update for those who purchased it when it first came out???

Arkeas said:

August 3rd, 9:12 pm

This is a terrible update, and PlayStation Plus has been nothing but a waste of money so far.

EdEN_Zardos said:

August 3rd, 9:14 pm

Got Final Fight Double Impact since at $5 you can’t go wrong.

Seriously considering buying Patchwork Hereoes even if I don’t own a PSP just to support the game.

Sony, let us play PSP games on the PS3!

Add me to the list of Playstation Plus members wondering where Qore went.

I had an annual subscription, then I got Playstation Plus while the subscription was still active. I believe my subscription was supposed to expire either last month or this month, but checking the store today, no option to download this month’s issue appears in my download list, nor does an option to download the individual issue or renew the annual membership appear in the Qore section of the store either.

So how to I get at this month’s Qore issue??

jwood87 said:

August 3rd, 10:28 pm

Can you please drop the price on assassin’s creed bloodlines. You can walk into any gamestop or best buy or find it anywhere online to buy (UMD) for 20$. But us PSP Go owners are still stuck at the 40$ price point. Please make this happen grace!

Lord_Rinja said:

August 3rd, 10:41 pm

I’ve really been loving the sales you guys have had now and the past two weeks. Fat Princess is definitely worth $7.49 so I picked that up (and any self respecting fan of capture the flag, RTS games and Action RPGs should pick it up as well). I also downloaded the Earthworm Jim HD Demo. So far, I like what I hve played. It may be a future purchase for me. Wanna beat Rocket Knight first (another awesome platformer that originated from the Genesis Era)Keep up the good work and keep the sales coming. Also, keep the Castle Crashers coming as well (I want that game now :-)

August 3rd, 10:54 pm

I would like to know when some more (more than there is now) content is going to be availible for Plastation Plus Members (Like free games, or free content like we were promised… I’m happy with discounts too… but the things that are discounted are kinda lame-ish)…

darkerego said:

August 3rd, 10:54 pm

mw2 cliffhanger demo? why would that just now be up there a year after they showed it at e3 ’09?

Fimbulvet said:

August 3rd, 11:22 pm

At least there are sales for the games. I could do without Warriors of the Lost Empire, and the update is sparse, but I can understand this considering P3P and Metal Gear were released to keep us busy

Fimbulvet said:

August 4th, 12:26 am

And where is that Persona 2 love??? Please!!!
