Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Here is the weekly PlayStation Store update:

It’s the first day of summer and the PlayStation Store has some great updates for everyone today. More “Welcome Back” offers from EA are available in PlayStation Plus, and they include great discounts for 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, Madden NFL Arcade and The Masters Eagle Pack for Tiger Woods 2012. Alien Zombie Mega Death, available for $7.99, is the new PS3 downloadable game this week.

@ everyone suggesting psn gives plus members better content to keep them hooked.

If they did that then people would get awesome free stuff and sony wouldn’t be able to buy the gold toilets in their buildings…..(digital sarcasm)

But seriously … This is kind of a crap update… tigerwoods 12 is overpriced at 34.99 anyway. I refuse to buy another EA sports game. Nothing but ripoffs…. here play these courses/courts/stadiums!!…..you must buy this to continue…

Mk scarlet is okay I guess and kz3 packs are legit. But vurtua tenis 4 has a horrible rating from almost every game magazine. 3d and move isn’t going to save it. Bury it and move on

June 21st, 9:57 pm


I’ve been a plus subscriber a while… those game trials have been there for months. And a lot of the updates are just as horrible as the content before it

I wouldn’t say the best update of the week, but it’s been like this for a while now… :/

VOXanation said:

June 21st, 10:56 pm

Slim pickings but at least the JACK PACK 4 is out. YAY!

SinAscendant said:

June 21st, 11:04 pm

Uh, scuse me, what happened to 2 updates per week until we were caught up?

It was down for eight weeks, guys. Eight. Weeks. That means hey, we’re eight weeks behind, which means double updates for eight weeks in a row. We got double updates for, what, two weeks? Maybe?

Getting just a LITTLE tired of companies making promises they don’t deliver on.

excaliber45 said:

June 21st, 11:10 pm

Hardly ever complain about what Sony does on this blog, but this update is kinda weak…

tjjxthunder247 said:

June 21st, 11:17 pm

wow, super disappointed :(

Jmomoney745 said:

June 21st, 11:22 pm

To be completely honest I don’t mind this update lacking so much content. Considering what Sony just bounced back from, this is pretty great.

As for you (Comment 302), disappointment is ok. Just remember that the reason you care about the update is because you love Sony.

excaliber45 said:

June 21st, 11:25 pm

@303 A voice of reason :)

June 21st, 11:28 pm

Was just in the store and noticed there are MLB avatar’s. When is it going to be possible for me to get an Orioles avatar? Also on that note, it will be the bird right? I think the bird look’s much better than the “O’s” on the alternate caps.

Can we have some Patapon 3 Avatars please?
I see other people have some, What gives?

@308 i couldn’t either

Kirkpad said:

June 22nd, 12:56 am

Well, I wasn’t planning on buying it, but I can’t even see Bionic Commando Rearmed in the PSN Store. The second one is there, but the first isn’t. When I click the $5 promotional banner it says “Your account cannot access this content”, which makes NO sense.

Capcom died in my mind when they added additional DRM to already encrypted PSN files. It was fun while it lasted, playing Zack and Wiki and such.

Crappy update is crappy. Thanks for keeping up your standards Sony. -_-

I don’t understand why for the past 3 months are so we are getting old sega games, we need new psn games for free!

June 22nd, 5:36 am

I’ll wait for a DLC pack with both of castlevania’s DLCs… No way I’m gonna pay 20$ for 2 chapter (1 with only 3 levels!)

Brozz65 said:

June 22nd, 5:55 am

No D&D Daggerdale? Again?
Come on guys, is this game coming or not?

tonydamiani said:

June 22nd, 6:07 am

Mortal Kombat DLC for 4.99!!! O_o

I’m gonna wait for the Season Pass.

If not I’m not wasting 4.99 for an character! >_>

Hooligantuan said:

June 22nd, 6:16 am

Still waiting on word on what/where this Sonic bundle is.

Come on, Sony. You gotta look at these comment threads longer than the first hour after the publish.

xSweetBunny said:

June 22nd, 6:22 am

I remember reading here the other day that they’re going to post on June 22nd a list of the “second set of free games” for the Welcome Back program, available on July 4th. I hope we’re getting that today! :)

i’d like to see some inFamous 2 avatars!
evil/hero cole, nix and kuo would be nice

Threemusketeers3 said:

June 22nd, 6:38 am

Okay update.

ImmortalManth said:

June 22nd, 6:51 am

What a pathetic “update”. I guess since everyone is on PS Plus now, we don’t get good updates concerning discounted and free Plus exclusive stuff? Just more overpriced DLC for games we probably do not own.

arbdef said:

June 22nd, 7:15 am

DLC is getting ridiculous. Every game seems to want to nickel and dime you anymore with get this or get that or worst yet buy this and have an advantage. This is what is going to kill gaming like in the late 80’s early 90’s. games are starting to cost well over $100 each once all the DLC is figured in. you pay $60 then buy 4 more characters for mortal kombat to a total of $90 then a few months later they add more for another 5 bucks a pop. So lame.

zombie9 said:

June 22nd, 7:29 am

Uncharted 3 BETA next week can’t wait!!!

Badmamajamma said:

June 22nd, 7:31 am

Where is Dungeons and Dragons Daggerdale? It came out May 24th on the other console and I thought PSN was trying to catch back up, but no on a game that is about a month old on the other system. An update would be nice here on this. Not to mention other games that we still haven’t seen like Section 8 Prejudice which is also already out on the other console. Are we just going to miss these games?

Genomicinsight said:

June 22nd, 7:33 am

For those of you gamers wondering The Sonic bundle will be on sale on PSN by July 12th . It is part of the 20th anniversary Sale Event.

ghcloverfld said:

June 22nd, 8:13 am

Whatever happened to Dungeon Defenders?……have a theme, but still no game…..

Badmamajamma said:

June 22nd, 8:14 am

@337 Then they sell a version of the game offering the dlc for free with purchase and we, who paid for it, feel like we got shafted. Not very fair. I will just wait to buy games 6 months after they come out and get me that dlc for free as a perk to buy it. DLC for mk, 5 original costumes for 5 bucks, then one character for 5 bucks, what a rip. And also they should have it where when you buy a game and get like an exclusive skin or something that it should not be for purchase later.

mr_chun said:

June 22nd, 8:15 am

*insert obligatory inquiry here about why we still haven’t received Crash Commando or Alien Zombie Death free via PS+ like we were supposed to back on April 26th*

I won’t be letting this go! ;)

BTW, Can you fix the laggy servers SONY? Ever since PSN has come back, servers are laggy and games crash sometimes. Bad company getting unplayable w/ all the lag. There wasnt an issue before the servers went offline. I’d much rather see the servers optimized than crappy PS store releases.

shyguyNC said:

June 22nd, 8:38 am

oh, and I too will chime in on the “are we still getting Crash Commando free or what?” sentiment – was looking forward to getting that right before the outage …
