Quit being a fanboy, the statistics could smack you in the face and you wouldn’t know it.

I own both systems and the 360 has been #1 for several years now, read gamepro, watch G4, its all there

I’m absolutely disgusted. PSN down for a month and this is what you come up with!?

who wants new avatars that are free for ps+ and siphon filter as a ps1 classic copy and paste this if you do

STILL missing Final Fantasy Dissidia 012 dlc’s that you said were out the THIRD. Any news your gonna actually put it up?

AbruptedWotas said:

June 21st, 4:19 pm

as for me i love both my systems

Where is the Sonic’s 20th Birthday Bundle?

Cage890 said:

June 21st, 4:21 pm

I’m not a fanboy, junior.
I see it just as well as everyone else. We gamers care alot about the community we play in, and when things hit a slump, we need to be there to keep the developers and Sony from slowing down. Its a fast paced world in the gaming industry, and theres no room for screw ups.. especially after what happened to Sony. They need to get back the people they lost.

inkme1 said:

Where did angry birds go? Will it be back?


June 21st, 4:24 pm

How about a discount on red dead redemption undead nightmare?

Bashr21 said:

June 21st, 4:25 pm

What is the Sonic’s 20th birthday bundle? I’m slightly intrigued…

Cage890 said:

June 21st, 4:25 pm

@AbruptedWotas & No, Xbox was never #1. The only #1 they got.. was being #1 for selling so many consoles, because their crap systems kept failing, and people had no choice but to buy another one if they wanted to stay with Microsoft.

TG-Raylock said:

June 21st, 4:28 pm

Woah the update is ****ing horrible. Like anyone gives a **** about all that sports crap. If I wasn’t already a PS+ subscriber no way would I ever subscribe based on this month. Absolute tripe!

EY474 said:

June 21st, 4:28 pm

Whenever i try to play online on cod 4,it says i will unlock all online playlist at level 55 but im only at level 20. Why cant i play online?!?!

ZettaiZetsumei77 said:

June 21st, 4:34 pm


I’m with you on that one Cobbil, I don’t see what the hold up is with the Dissidia 012 DLC.

I can understand them taking it down in the EU store because of the DLC mix up they had – for those that don’t know when you downloaded the FFVI music pack you got a free psp download of Final fantasy IV Complete instead – but I don’t see why they had to take if off the US store before I had any chance to download it, too -___-

What bothers me more is that it was taken down after a while, fixed AND PUT BACK UP IN THE EU STORE, while they took it down and didn’t put it back up here..

Asphyxies said:

June 21st, 4:35 pm

Since there is some feedback this week…How about Final Fantasy 6…next week also?

megamixer said:

June 21st, 4:37 pm

The hold up on Dissidia 012 DLC is likely due to Japan PSN Store not being being back yet. S-E wouldn’t want the rest of the world getting ahead of Japan in that department!

Cobbil said:

June 21st, 4:39 pm

@megamizer Japan is already ahead of us on Dissidia dlc.

Trogdor636 said:

June 21st, 4:40 pm

Uh. I just bought the Tiger Woods 12 eagle pack. Can I get 15 bucks back so I can buy the other Tiger Woods pack?

GGod0 said:

June 21st, 4:48 pm

Someone please tell Squeenix to give us more duodecim costumes.

Like Kain or Golbez.

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

June 21st, 4:51 pm

nice update..gettin the KZ3 map pack for that wonderful price of $5 and the bionic commando 2 for $5 as no longer rushing to play any other game company games..for they are alil too over priced like the nice sidescroller game called Rocket Knight which still seems to be $15 buks and it doesnt even have co-op or any kind of online features..I lol @ Capcom. but yeah it was a decent update im not trying to spend so much money for i just got the sharpshooter – which is pretty great with TIME CRISIS…i didnt have too much fun with it on socom 4 or not that fond with the moving the move left and right to turn my camera :/ hopefully there is an option to change that..but yeah..KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SONY PLAYSTATION – :)

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

June 21st, 4:53 pm

My mistake Bionic Commando is 10 buks..i guess i can wait alittle longer till its 5 >:p ..

ybakcuh said:

June 21st, 4:56 pm

Pretty bad update guys

ZettaiZetsumei77 said:

June 21st, 4:56 pm


Europe has almost EVERY SINGLE piece of DLC for Dissidia 012, save for Gilgamesh type 0, which nobody has. They even got Cloud’s Kingdom Hearts outfit, which was a US only pre-order code. We’re really getting the short end here, for no reason.
Also, why hasn’t the PSN been restored in Japan? With Sony being so popular there, you would think they would have fixed it already :O


June 21st, 5:00 pm

I’m so glad that I have a free month of PS+ so I can see how lame it really is. What a piss poor showing.

Ecks said:

Mortal Kombat – Warrior Skarlet ($4.99)

$5 just for one character? Argh… Guess I’ll be sitting this out.

TehCro said:

June 21st, 5:01 pm

Picked up Bionic Commando Rearmed 1. Might get 2, but I’m really tempted to get the pinball bundle.

christreignz said:

June 21st, 5:02 pm

look on the bright side people! We are getting (provided you don’t already have them) both Bionic Commando Rearmed games for the price of rearmed 2!

PainOfSarrow said:

June 21st, 5:04 pm

what the hellllll…. 4.99 for warrior skarlet ? only one character its that much money ? realy should be 2.99. il pass

Eldritchsense said:

June 21st, 5:07 pm

So what’s the deal with Final Fantasy VI? It’s been out in EU since the network came up, could we PLEASE get a word on when it’s coming to the US?


June 21st, 5:09 pm

PEOPLE be advised that Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 can only be played by the purchasing account AND must be connected to the PSN in order to play it

wushukan said:

June 21st, 5:21 pm

to me it seems that they are only giving things to plus members that would make no difference on their bottom end. thats kind of ridiculous, considering how many are plus members, and they would make money either way.
sony needs to man up and stop throwing out [DELETED] month after month, because i highly doubt ill be renewing if this crap keeps happening.
i think a major release should be given to plus members once every 3 months, because not everyone has or wants Move, or likes playing old classic games on our 7th gen console.

celsius_ftw said:

June 21st, 5:22 pm

Has anyone found the Sonic Bundle?

RIPpskiller17 said:

June 21st, 5:26 pm

i wont the cod 4 modern warfare broadcast and all that stuff free for an update

CanadianFuzzy said:

June 21st, 5:27 pm

I loved Bionic Commando Rearmed and want Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 but there’s no way I’ll ever buy it as long as the DRM that doesn’t allow me to play it unless I’m connected to PSN is a part of it.

Autoxfool said:

June 21st, 5:28 pm

Aside from the off chance that a game I’ve been waiting for to be on sale is (NHL), this update is near the worst I’ve seen since I started watching them. Just downright sad.

And this whole DLC garbage is out of hand already and people better wake up and NOT BUY IT. It’s only showing that they can continue the practice. Games ($60 new at that) come out and IMMEDIATELY have DLC for $xxx. People aren’t even done with the game or even received their pre-order from said game and they already can buy more stuff for it on PSN. WTF! PUT IT IN THE GAME. Nothing but a cash grab and they have most of you hook-line-and-sinker.

Wake up and be smart consumers people. Nothing changes until then.

broodwars said:

June 21st, 5:29 pm

So what if we ALREADY bought Marvel Pinball? No Free Zen Pinball for us?

Lopan said:

June 21st, 5:29 pm

@#10 PSN is free yes and while paying for Plus you get free content. Xbox Live, you pay $60 a year just to access online play and market with no free games, themes, or avatars to offer.

Eldritchsense said:

June 21st, 5:29 pm

Getting tired of asking about FFVI every update and being ignored. Sony, start answering your customers past page 2!

Breezi16 said:

June 21st, 5:31 pm

Please release more PSOne classics. This update is terrible. I’m sorry but it is. Parasite Eve 2 didn’t get released yet at all. I know it’s summer and I won’t be playing at all since I’m on my workout schedule, but come on. By the time PlayStation 4 comes out I bet some of the greatest playstation games still won’t be out. They don’t have Tekken 3 and my 11 year old disc surely isn’t working properly.

where is the Mortal Kombat season pass? which includes all 4 dlc fighter

KoldStrejke said:

Yeah we can’t get our hopes up too much with Sony.

orangeguy17 said:

cool updates

wilsonfamily said:

June 21st, 5:40 pm


The mortal kombat season pass is an xbox exclusive. Ps3 users will be buying the dlc individually.

wilsonfamily said:

June 21st, 5:42 pm

I too was hoping they would have a season pass for the mk dlc for ps3 users but alas it is only for the xbox players. I just bought skarlet for the $5 which is also supposed to include the mk3 skins for cyrax and sektor


June 21st, 5:44 pm

I wish they would put Ristar in the PSN store. Just throwing that out there.

mcbuttz78 said:

June 21st, 5:44 pm

Sometimes i get tired of the exclusive share crap xbox do. its ruining gameing as whole.. Im going write to the top guys at sony and tell them to start doing the same thing with games and exclusives.

And any one who saying xbx live is good is krazy.. If thery were so good how come your over looking to see what we got. dam spies..Xbox is a trailer park trash game console and any who disputes that is a xbx troll
