In my opinion, we should have received 60 free days of playstation plus. Sony was so busy with E3 and trying to reassure everyone that PSN is secure, that the really skimped on the playstation store this past month.

Got Record of Agarest War Zero DLC so i’m happy ! Thx :) Waiting for the next week update for this game :D

Just maybe. Lawl.

Bionic Commando Rearmed pricing is not updated to the sale!

Kirkpad said:

June 21st, 6:37 pm

I think this is the most replies on a PS Update EVER.

NeoX360 said:

June 21st, 6:39 pm

Thanks for the update. Not really a thrilling update, at least for me, but hey new stuff and I am all for that. What exactly is the sonic bundle?

Kirkpad said:

June 21st, 6:41 pm

Oh, and DO NOT buy Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. Not only does the game suck, it has DRM on it which requires you to be signed in to play the game. This means that if the PSN went out again you can’t play the game.

smokerPRO92 said:

June 21st, 6:59 pm

Sigh. What about a PSN Final Fantasy X??? A downloadable one like ff9 and ff7? I know I know, I’m complaining…but seriously! :(

JG4Horrorshow said:

June 21st, 7:08 pm

Dissidia DLC, where is it?

Final Fantasy 5 and 6, where are they?

Parasite Eve 2, where is it?

monyking said:

June 21st, 7:09 pm

What I would like to see is the Modern Combat discounted…I have been waiting for it to get just cheaper and I know there is second one coming up pretty soon.

smokerPRO92 said:

June 21st, 7:11 pm

Oh, I also forgot to say:

I agree With some of the other users. the “DLC” thing has really gotten outta hand. Why not put it on the game? When I pay 60$ for a game, I want the WHOLE game. Costumes..maps..ect. I understand that it takes longer than the release of a game to make those extra add-ons…for some. However, you can put a vivdly amazing game like FFX on ONE disc, but you can’t include a few extra costumes on a PS3 DISC!

Wake up people. THINK… Some of these things should come with a lable, “Consult your Cranium before buying”.

PimblyCharles said:

June 21st, 7:12 pm

@Ro Hernandez

Thank you for answering to the questions about Beyond Good & Evil! We are all very excited to finally check it out!

smokerPRO92 said:

June 21st, 7:13 pm

Is the Dissidia DLC the whole game for the PS3?

If so…I’m definately jumping on the bandwagon here…, “WHERE IS IT!!!”

BigPoppaB said:

June 21st, 7:18 pm

Just my luck that Sony actually publishes their updates early.

Added my billing info to account, all set to buy Rockstar pass then see its now $12.

Eff that!

Weapon_20_X said:

June 21st, 7:19 pm

So I gotta say not impressed at all. There was only 1 thing I was really excited about and that was the Mortal Kombat DLC. I should have expected that while EVERYONE is a plus customer that nothing was going to come out that gives any want or need to continue being PS Plus Customers after our FREE Month. Even when PS Plus wasn’t free it really wasnt giving much of a discount on anything important. The only thing that is somewhat good was the Free 60 Min of games fully unlocked. I got to test a few games with that. I think I will keep my money though and once my PS Plus “FREE” month is up I am done.

smokerPRO92 said:

June 21st, 7:34 pm

I agree with Weapon_20_X.

I Wasn’t a Plus member before the Welcome Back Package. But since being a free Plus member. I barely see a difference between regular and Plus. A dollar off here or there on (unimportant, probably wouldn’t buy anyways) game…yadda yadda. There’s nothing really special to being a Plus Member. It’s not like they get Map packs earlier. or anything like that. The discount’s really aren’t even that much… a number like 20% OFF FOR PLUS ONLY… really only equals to about a dollar or two off most games.

Eh…I’m glad Sony gave out this free 30 Days, let me know what it was like to be a Plus Member. Eh…I’m not impressed. Thanks Sony!

June 21st, 7:35 pm

Please, a DLC for Little Big planet TWO was suppose to come out a couple of months ago when MotorCross Apocalypse came out. They accidentally posted the MotorCross DLC from Little Big Planet ONE instead. Their is a huge difference between these two DLC. Please, inform who ever does this stuff that they need to upload the Little Big Planet TWO DLC of MotorCross Apocalypse. This is for the US store only. The European store did not make this same screw up.

Hooligantuan said:

June 21st, 7:44 pm

Yeah, hi, Sony?

Still waiting on word on what the heck/where the heck this Sonic 20th Birthday Bundle business is.

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

June 21st, 7:44 pm

I am so glad nothing of interest for me is in this update, as my system is still under the knife and likely won’t be fixed until Friday!!! Ack, this is really killing my Playstation Plus time! Lol.

jimmyjam14810 said:

June 21st, 7:47 pm

i wanna see more ps1 classics like breath of fire 3 and 4 plus ff anthology

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

June 21st, 7:49 pm

Smoker, I also was not a member before this Welcome Back package, but I’m antsy about the time lost while my system undergoes maintenance. The reason I care is because there are Game trials I haven’t played yet, and some free games that will expire with the month subscription I haven’t finished yet (namely Magic: the Gathering, Planeswalkers and a couple others.) So I do see the difference in the material I wouldn’t have access to otherwise, but it’s still not enough of a difference for me to pay repeatedly to keep it. I’ll just wait for the regular sales like I usually do.

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

June 21st, 7:50 pm

I think the best deal for getting Playstation Plus was getting Under Seige for half off when it’s worth the $20 in my opinion.

Lil_Mermaid_Girl said:

June 21st, 7:56 pm

Not a very impressive update :( The free theme is nice, but that’s all I’m downloading. I’m happy with plus though recently, Magic was a nice freebie. But I thought they’d try harder to keep all the people as + subscribers.

I hope they try harder with the vita than they have with the psp cause I worry about getting the vita if it is going to be treated the same way the psp has been…

janoc7 said:

June 21st, 8:00 pm

I would’ve been just as disappointed by this update as everyone else (especially so soon after the PSN outage) if not for the Zen Pinball deal which I am ALL OVER.

hush404 said:

June 21st, 8:04 pm

Honestly Sony… Just give me my [DELETED] Beyond Good & Evil HD.

broodwars said:

June 21st, 8:23 pm

Neither of the Bionic Commando Rearmed games are priced correctly on the store. This is the second week in a row where the updates have incorrectly announced a price. Someone needs to get their act together, because this is getting really old.

onslaughtree said:

June 21st, 8:32 pm

Ok, It’s time for this weeks PSN Review.
Kinda black and white this week. On one hand we have DLC for KZ3, MK, Caltlevania, LA Noire and so on, a few PsPlus titles ( all sports I might add ), the Zen pinball givaway is a good bundle, but on the other hand, we have MK character priced at $4.99 ? are you kidding me ? I know this is not the doing of sony, but give me a break, $1.99 would have been perfect. Makes me wonder who’s more crazy, the person pricing this DLC or the gamers purchasing it.
Again we have the KZ3 DLCpriced at $4.99, perfect. and on the other hand we have Castlevania DLC priced at $9.99. REALLY ? Sprinkle in the V Tennis demo and the limited PsPlus freebies and we have a very underwelming PSN Tuesday. We need at least 1 PsOne classic a week sony.
All in all, this week gets a well desirved C grade….Oh and megamixer, your review was ok, but giving PSN update a 0/5 is just hateful. The KZ3 DLC alone, bumps it up a knotch…you my friend gets a SHAQ-Fu (C Grade)…..As always, Keep on Gamin.

im_a_pterodactyl said:

June 21st, 8:35 pm

Nice! I’ll be grabbing the LA Noire DLC… my Rockstar Pass has finally saved me some money! I’m also curious about Alien Zombie Mega Death. And if I’ve read Ro Hernandez’ comments here correctly, then both Beyond Good and Evil and Gatling Gears are coming next week. Not bad at all.

shadefz said:

June 21st, 8:35 pm

disappointing..oh well need to wait till next week..

broodwars said:

June 21st, 8:38 pm

Correction: Bionic Command Rearmed 1 is priced incorrectly. Rearmed 2 seems to be priced right.

im_a_pterodactyl said:

June 21st, 8:39 pm

Think I’ll grab the pinball bundle too. I’ve been on the fence about Marvel Pinball for a while, and getting Zen with it for free clinches the deal. I’m liking Plus so far too, actually. $5 Fancy Pants? Sweet.

XxBloodShockxX said:

June 21st, 8:41 pm

I know this may be off topic, but I really want to change my psn ID name, can you guys please make something that would let you do that, kind of like the xbox 360.

Sweet. Moon Props for modnation. Man I hope this means that we can make space levels now. Can’t wait!

mmaher said:

June 21st, 8:52 pm

yes! breath of fire 3, 4 and final fantasy anthology! listen to those guys up there! ^^^^^^^^^^^^

Juan1992 said:

June 21st, 8:53 pm

About the welcome back program, does the PS Plus subscription offer end in 2 weeks or can you hold on to it for as long as you want. I really need to know.

Juan1992 said:

June 21st, 9:01 pm

lol forget about what i just said fail

Any update is good, theres just no pleasing these infants. anyways, still wondering about the LBP2 motorstorm:apocalypse minipack, info plz and thank u.

Chuckbait said:

June 21st, 9:24 pm

I should’ve gotten Fancy Pants while it was on sale. Oh well, hopefully it goes for $5.00 again sometime…

Wolf26pack said:

June 21st, 9:30 pm

Come on guys go out with a BANG!!! Here are some of the things I’d like to see…

– 50% discount on the Scott Pilgrim game
– Discounts on some dynamic themes such as
* Afrika Dynamic Theme
* LittleBigPlanet Dynamic Theme
* Ratchet & Clank Dynamic Theme
* Flower Dynamic Theme
* Killzone 3 Dynamic Theme’s
* etc….

and let’s a good dynamic theme for Sly 4 when it comes out.

Finally I’d just like to know why haven’t you guys brought the original Twisted Metal out on the PS Store. Come on the new one is hitting soon and I’d like to play the classic as well. Make it happen!!! Please ;-(

God-Of-Lyf said:

June 21st, 9:36 pm

Seems like an average update to me. Plus freebies are every other week for the PLUS newbies.

The thing about PLUS that members need to be aware of, it is set by default to auto renew. Make sure you change that option before the month is out if you don’t want to continue, or you will be charged. And if you do decide to not renew, anything you got for free from plus will no longer work! Just so you know how it works.

I’m downloading the new member for MK only this week as everything else released is not really my thing.

marlyt said:

June 21st, 9:41 pm

@ Ro,

The Sonic bundle is not on the store. Is this an oversight? I know how to search the store and it’s not there. The other bundles are as advertised, but Sonic is not.

IsmirZone said:

Where are the DEMOS?

ToFeY said:

June 21st, 9:49 pm

i agree with smokerPRO92!!
i’d buy FFX even if it was 50$
