I was looking at prototype in wal-mart 2 days ago but thought I’d wait to see the psn price – I’m going back to wal-mart

for that $30 on psn I can get prototype and a used copy of fallout 3 at ebgames .
why are old games so much on psn ? they still ask $30 for socom and gt5 on psn and $49 for nfl head coach when it’s $10 in the bargain bin .

So is the avatar bundle next week then? Been waiting for some new avatars at it has been quite awhile since we got one. Also you guys should talk with Naughty Dog and see if they will bring us the new Drake avatar to Plus users!

great update and some awesome demos next week. im happy

Wow, you know I came very close to getting playstation plus when it very first came out, but I thought it was a little disappointing, and I figured I’d wait for it to be worth it. Well, still waiting. What a complete disappointment that turned out to be. Nice to see X-men arcade get emulated. Oh wait, it was emulated by Nicola Salmoria about a decade ago. Why not emulate something worthwhile, like I dunno, your entire massive ps2 library.

cut some of the funds for embarrassing garbage like those horrid racist Marcus PSP advertisements that nearly break my eardrums or PS Home for god sakes. Two easy to remove, cost effective solutions to get some developers worth a dime and get some progress done. I hate to break it to you, but Microsoft is really kicking you in the teeth in the advanced console development market. I’ve seen more interesting visuals in their GUI than I’ve seen in your entire OS.

We need less random silly import PSOne games. Seriously, get Vagrant Story and other games that are in English first, please. Vagrant Story was released in Europe a year ago, and before that in japan as well, why do we not have it?

Christian399 said:

December 15th, 1:58 am

Still getting the Sam & Max download error. If DCOU wasn’t so AWESOME, I would be far crankier :)

As it is, I just want it eventually, as it’s free. So let’s get a fix out please.

crazysky108 said:

December 15th, 1:59 am

Hey I hate to sound greedy, I love all the stuff we got as PS + users now but …. …

I’d really like a Christmas dynamic theme~ <3 I'm still using the Halloween one right now because it's awesome.

I mean I guess you don't have to but it'd be cool and I'd be your best friend and some junk!

December 15th, 2:26 am

Can we please get the 3D patch for Ridge Racer 7 that Japan and Europe got? Please talk to NAMCO and find out when they are going to release the 3D patch here in the US! Otherwise I will need to purchase a European copy of the game to get my game in 3D… :(

There is A problem on The new Update

& When i Want to Update My Ps He Says That Im Already Download The update

Wolf26pack said:

December 15th, 4:11 am

With the recent release of the X-Men Arcade game, I’d also like to see these Arcade games released to the PSN with trophies.

– The Simpson’s Arcade
– Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’s Arcade
– Jurassic Park (with Move Support)

If somebody with influence is reading this, please make it happen & have them add Virtual Arcade Cabinets that appear in Playstation Home when you buy them that represent the old classic Arcades, that will up the Nostalgia factor.

I am also hoping this games will go on sale soon (Hopefully 50% off)

– Scott Pilgrim
– Castle Crashers
– Shank

Thanks in Advance

Er, Sony, if you develop a system (PSP Go) you could actually make it worth it :P I’m starting to regret getting a Go seeing as you NEVER give a decent update for the PSP store…

JohnnyMaxx08 said:

December 15th, 4:28 am

I was going to say that I’m getting the error 80023102 when trying to download Sam and Max, but since you guys are aware and working for a solution, I won’t say anything. :)

I’ll say this though: Finally an update for PS Plus of something that I really didn’t have. And the Beta for DCU is a great advantage. Looks like we’re finally getting something for our loyalty and our money spent on PS Plus.

But I can’t play DC Universe right now… when it comes to “World Selection”, there is nothing to select. Anyone knows anything about this?

Thanks everyone.

December 15th, 5:58 am

@261 Mr-Wolf11  Are you using the dns bypass ? most likely that is why you can’t update . change ur network settings back to normal.

Happy about Sam & Max and DCUO

Very disappointed about the Field Runners repeat. Why is this being repeated? It’s not even a great piece of software to begin with (so slow!), there’s no reason to use that multiple times as a PS+ reward.

FiftyQuid said:

December 15th, 6:34 am

Where was the QA department when Sam & Max was updated on the PSN Store for PS+ subscribers?

Could we get an ETA on a fix? Even if it’s a terribly inaccurate one.

This is exactly why digital distribution is a complete ripoff and is exactly why all the game companys can’t wait for it to be implemented. It elminates any and all competition between stores on pricing. It will be a sad, sad, sad day if/when digital distribution only becomes a reality…

Crash15 said:

December 15th, 7:11 am

People need to stop complaining cause last week the PSP had one of the biggest price drops ever. I am happy with my PSP GO but, there are some price drops that need to DROP. ex. Dante’s Inferno needs to be 19.99 .


December 15th, 7:14 am

does the sam and max game work for anyone?????

Quicky1972 said:

December 15th, 7:30 am


Yeah, I managed to snag Prototype from Target’s Clearance bin too for about 8 bucks, I think…:)


No, I don’t think it’s working for anybody actually. I can’t download it either…I can wait.

You have to admit though, you can find better deals on clearanced/on sale UMDs in stores than on the Playstation Store, period. I haven’t bought any PSP games from the PS Store for this reason.

Playstation’s support of the PSPGo, IMO, has been pretty abysmal and I’m glad I stuck with my ole-fashioned PSP.

JohnnyMaxx08 said:

December 15th, 8:23 am

I guess they were running some server maintenance. I also had the problem, but now is all good. Already created a character just for fun before coming to work, and by those simple 30 minutes of gameplay in PvP server, I can honestly say that it is a must buy in the future. Looks Great, Feels Great, and is a MMO, which adds a lot of fun in gameplay aspect.

And I can’t leave without saying that Sam and Max is still showing error. Not that I’m that anxious to play it either, but I want to donwload it. :)
