Interesting that the only feedback being provided on the forum is a message saying that we know that there is an error. That’s great and all, but I would love to see some feedback to other people’s questions and comments.

As for PSP releases; just sad this time around. Any news when the Pac Man CE (mini game) is coming? At all? Do we even care anymore?

Gooddaysfall said:

December 14th, 6:02 pm

Plz reply I can’t download it cause of that dumb error.

@192 yeah that happens to me too, just leave the store and it should come back again

good thing i’m not the only one having problems with sam & max.
a pretty good update for us Plus members.

Just pick up CONFRONTATION at any games retailer like EB Games for ~$10. I got it for $9.99, and then went splits on the DLC with a friend.

KidCommando said:

December 14th, 6:24 pm

Thanks for the DCUO Beta.

Please no more repeat content for Plus subscriptions.

LOL at anyone who buys Prototype at $30.00.

BGizzleTheGreat said:

December 14th, 6:24 pm

Time for The Tester. Last week, my opinion of Mo Chocolate magically turned into “Man, I hope he wins that challenge.” I didnt like the undertones of that promo for this weeks episode.

Anyway, I just had to log in to say kudos to Liz Walsh for responding to all these comments/concerns about Sam and Max. And I am so serious when I say that I am impressed by the many different ways each different response has been worded. I know its kind of random, but seriously, its quietly awesome to me.

@ mixedkidbx

I doubt you’ll read this far but, depending on how much you’re into the game and how long we have with it, it might be worth letting it re-download over again (over night of course while visions of sugarplums are dancing thru your head). I’ve had my same console since Sept 2007. It was the 60gig model that I swapped out hard drives for a 500 gig notebook hard drive. No issues that others report on anything, ever. Are you in the LBP2 beta and does it happen on that too? Good luck.

marlyt said:

December 14th, 6:27 pm

EAT THEM! releases on PSN next week! Woot!

T40Rs731N said:

December 14th, 6:27 pm

This update alone is worth the price of Plus. AND, I received my LBP2 Beta Code (fixed) today!! I am ecstatic!

footballrule said:

December 14th, 6:48 pm

Downloading the DCUO Beta right now. Great update Playstation!

IGoDur said:

December 14th, 6:49 pm

Any chance of there ever being price for the very psn psp titles? i mean come Daxter $15 and the first Loco Roco for $23.

Great update for plus members all around this month. Thanks Sony.

RedGiant17 said:

December 14th, 6:56 pm

I’m also getting the error trying to download the DC beta.

TheKinggKoopa said:

December 14th, 7:04 pm

Huh, interesting.. Everyone is getting an Error code for Sam & Max.. I was getting that error for the DC Universe Beta.

SPADERZ216 said:

December 14th, 7:05 pm

Great update for us PSN+ members. I hope the Sam & Max 80023102 error gets fixed soon, nothing I’ve tried has resolved this issue. My only option left is patience.

omega_alpha-619 said:

December 14th, 7:07 pm

Thank you Sony.. downloading DCU @27.7 mb/s. Awesome time to be a PS+ member.. thanks again, Great work! =)

OMGitb said:

December 14th, 7:15 pm

I wanted to get the first Persona game for my PSP Go, and I saw that it’s still $40 for the download! When you can buy the UMD game that comes with a CD soundtrack for $19.99 new, why is the download only version still $40!?!? WTF Sony!

December 14th, 7:23 pm

Another week with no demos. What gives?

SolBlade9 said:

December 14th, 7:30 pm

Woot! X-Men! Gonna get it now!

mrkeith said:

December 14th, 7:35 pm

well that was a surprising 15 gig download lol for DCU :) Bigger than the PC version. Anyways, how long more for Sam and Max? Go figure on one of the games that I don’t have or atleast one of the ones that Im really interested in we get a error :( If it wasnt for bad luck, i would have no luck at all at this point.

Why are we getting field runners again, We want fresh items from PS+ no recycled content.

Violaking78 said:

December 14th, 8:15 pm

LoL all the whiners hating on PS+…maybe you should have signed up if you wanted the benefits. Otherwise shut the hell up.

ZephLaeliash said:

December 14th, 8:20 pm

What’s with this PSOne Classic Imports crap, when there’s so many amazing US Titles that still have not been released?

Tank_Baked said:

December 14th, 8:36 pm

lol why are people complaining about fieldrunners? We get another new mini next week anyways.

I asked last week about it and they responded and said it wouldn’t be a continuing trend .

Mario_16 said:

December 14th, 8:38 pm

hey why i dont recive the lbp 2 beta code ? im plus :( the same happened to me with the kz3 beta

BinaryJay said:

December 14th, 8:42 pm

I guess they didn’t fix it and went to bed and forgot to tell us to stop waiting around for the fix. G’night!

Tank_Baked said:

December 14th, 8:43 pm

Not all plus users were getting lbp2 beta invites. Only “select” plus members. I didn’t get one either. It’s all good tho.

VendettaLion said:

December 14th, 8:51 pm

I know out cry for MegaMan Legend content is high but how about releasing the MegaMan Legend games and not just the Avatars… Better yet how about we beg Capcom to bring out remakes of MegaMan Legends or at least bring the third title in the series to a home console and not just a handheld.

ShadowRaiserX said:

December 14th, 8:53 pm

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light – Raziel & Kain Character Pack ($3.49)that was wrong very wrong charge u this their just skins and the other ones were free

ElektroDragon said:

December 14th, 9:10 pm

Is Sam & Max worth getting PS Plus for? I like the Wallace and Gromit games, is this similar? Is it funny?

df2506 said:

December 14th, 9:18 pm

Not so great download imo (though I’m not a Playstation Plus member). I was really hoping for some demos…

That said, can’t wait till next week! THREE awesome demos: LittleBigPlanet 2, Mass Effect 2, and Dead Space 2. Plus the Costume Quest DLC.

I’m thinking about downloading a game on Christmas too but I’m not sure which game. Hmmm.

WhiteF8ng said:

December 14th, 9:34 pm

BOOOOOOOOOOOO! Where’s Tetris?!

The winter updates are almost all DLC. Geuss the devs are on vacation…

MadMeat001 said:

December 14th, 9:38 pm

WILL YOUR DOWNLOAD LIST EVER BE SEPARATED INTO DIFFERENT CATEGORY FOR EXEMPLE, CATEGORY FOR PS1 Classic, Demo, Add-ons, Full game, Theme, Avatar, and stuff like that please?

UltraRazpacho said:

December 14th, 10:00 pm

Has the Sam and Max problem been fixed yet?

Elex163 said:

December 14th, 10:01 pm

@MadMeat001. That would be great if they did.

Edd said:

December 14th, 10:14 pm

The DC Universe Online beta is AWESOME by the way. I wasn’t super interested (I’m not the biggest DC fan) but I love the combat system and being able to fly and trick out your hero, I might have to spend 15 bucks a month on this game lol. I hope there’s “pay as you go” options so you can skip out on a month or whatever, or have it to where you get a month of time and it just starts the clock whenever you play the game.

Please do everyone here a favor and stop posting an “analysis report” of each store update every week…you really sound like an ignorant person who has nothing else better to do with their life other than be an annoyance on the PS Blog…

As for the update itself, excellent update! X-Men game alone is worth the update! After 18 years, we finally get this game to arrive on a home console, with HD graphics and 6 player online coop! Plus POP Warrior Within HD came out which is awesome! Also the DCUO Beta was released for PS+ members!
