Thanks for the summer sale Grace! Picked up three items! Really appreciate it.
Any word on Spelunker “HD” coming to NA PSN yet?
Have a great week!

zoahporre said:

Just buy a PS2.

virgils_mustache said:

August 4th, 3:05 am

Once again, another week and no psp games worth downloading. It’s no wonder the psp go was a complete failure. Sony, thanks for having me waste $250 on your garbage product.

No PS1 classics? Dissapointed.

August 4th, 5:22 am

can we get a date for when the naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm 2 demo arrives on the american PSN

Itachi534 said:

August 4th, 5:51 am

yeah what about the demo that i heard was to come out on july 29th? Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2

Itachi534 said:

August 4th, 5:52 am

hey windwarrior mind if i add you as a buddy? we both seem to be wanting the same thing.

awsome_robot said:

August 4th, 6:37 am

I’m still not clear on this whole bi-weekly thing for PLUS. Are we still getting “gimmicky” (themes, avatars) stuff every week? Or EVERYTHING will be bi-weekly?

EVanHelsing said:

August 4th, 7:20 am

Earthworm Jim! I’ll try the demo first to make sure they didn’t screw it up, like the HD remake to Prince of Persia classic. When it comes to remakes:
High-resolution hand-drawn sprites = win
3D-rendered graphics = fail.

TwinDad said:

August 4th, 7:25 am

It only updates bi-weekly. There will be no content on the weeks they don’t publish.

No-Content 8/3
Content 8/10
No-Content 8/17
Content 8/24

zombie9 said:

August 4th, 7:51 am

Store update was very good. I got a couple of games on sale to beat the HEAT!! Time to sit in AC and catch up on some good games. I can’t wait untill next weeks QORE it has SPLATTERHOUSE!! Maybe Maffia 2 DEMO:)

MrBob2k7 said:

August 4th, 8:00 am

Unfortunately next weeks update looks so bad it is close to having no content for 3 weeks straight. RFG Game trail? You can find the full game 5 dollars online at certain times. Pixeljunk games are all good except Racers, so getting an update to a sub par game doesn’t seem like much of a “discount”. For comparison, Europe is getting the entire season 3 of Sam and Max. Qore is fine, but this is to be expected inclusion.

I figured Sony would want to have incentives people continue to subscribe after the 15 month for 12 month promo is done. If Sony is going to treat Plus like a club card in terms of game discounts, do a better job at it. Especially if Sony is now going to cut back on the content offered after one month. These summer sale games should have slight extra discount for Plus owners.

I swear I just bought Section 8 for 10 dollars! I’m gonna check.

Tinaray said:

August 4th, 9:05 am

What’s with the Modern Warfare 2 and Red Faction Guerrilla demos (or trials or whatever)? Doesn’t the demo/trial lose its point this long after the game has been released? I’ve never understood Sony’s take on demos.

Ska-Boom said:

August 4th, 9:17 am

I am disappointed in your support of the PSP on the PSN. Please add more games. If you want the list of games I would buy let me know, I’d be happy to provide it.

Decent on the PS3 front though, Earthworm Jim HD and BB:CS character and costume colors.

Awesome!!! Time to get pixeljunk Shooters and Tetris :D

kyuubi_clone said:

August 4th, 11:20 am

where’s Grace when the important issues are being asked? where did she go? ah i guess she’s waiting on a simple stupid question to answer as usual. why do we even bother on these forums when they never answer the REAL issues?

Pelt_Hunter said:

August 4th, 12:34 pm

I gave it a 5 square for the good sales on Shooter and such eventhough I already have it. Lame that PS+ updates are every other week now but subscribers still get their money worth and I hope the extra 3 months offer stays till at least next friday so I can get my check and get it. Otherwise I won’t be getting Plus. If it’s true that DC Universe Online will have no monthly subscription for Plus members you can bet your monkeys uncle that I’ll subscribe immediately. That is REAL value. I know you can do this for me Sony.

iTofuMan said:

August 4th, 12:56 pm

while those sale for the games are good i really hope next week (if you continue to do this) will have other games on sale like Monster Hunter,tekken 6, and hopefully we see some old good games like crisis core.

Other than that it was an ok update

kyuubi_clone said:

August 4th, 1:21 pm

psn+ needs to get serious about competing with xbox live man! and so far they are not doing that much of a good job. i love the wipeout HD and critter crunch but everything else has been pretty much old games. and rally cross??? wtf was that all about? that game was a disaster to gaming – it even looks much much worse now that we have PS3! what was sony thinking? did they really think that ppl wanted that crap? it felt as if sony was just throwing in any old thing that they can afford to give away for free. we paid for plus so give us PLUS!!! time to put xbox live to shame sony! you need to step up your game! as it is your deals and bargains are not making the masses want to become plus members and you definitely need to fix that. make it juicy and irresistable! i know you can do it sony… make me believe

BReal1982 said:

August 4th, 1:30 pm

I don’t mind the every-two-week thing with PS+, but there should be something significant each month. I just looked at the PS Blog Europe post about what they have coming up in the next two months and they look like they have some excellent content coming soon – Zen Pinball as the free game next month, Sam and Max: Devil’s Playhouse full season the following month, half priced Metal Gear Solid PSOne, et cetera.

WipeOut HD was a great deal since I didn’t have it before and, had I not previously purchased Critter Crunch, I would have been extremely happy with it. However, I hope that the trend of Europe getting bigget deals (LBP, the stuff mentioned above) isn’t an ongoing thing. If we get Zen Pinball and S&M (Heh) here, though, then my $50 will have been fully justified just a few months in.

cedelllh said:

August 4th, 2:48 pm

Lord_Rinja or anyone else that can answer this:

Does Fat Princess come with the DLC (Ninjas, Giants and Pirates)? If so, I am buying this immediately. Please let me know.

Kino321-X said:

August 4th, 3:24 pm

When will we have Suikoden II and the Spider-Man games?

kyuubi_clone said:

August 4th, 4:02 pm

no one is answering our questions as usual. this sucks! when will we on psn+ actually see worthwhile content? like new exclusive games, beta releases before psn, early demos of AAA titles, discounts on all the stuff that is actually on the psn network, more ps3 features for plus members, more than one qore episode. sony must have thought this plus thing out a long time ago, why is it not aggressively putting more into psn+. why start something you know you can’t continue, first month great games now…now you guys have regressed by going further back in the game archives and now bi-weekly, are you gonna change to once a month later on? wake up and realise that ppl want more out of plus!
