With football action in full swing, now may be the perfect time to up the action with NFL Blitz; especially if your favorite team might not be looking so good to make it to the playoffs!

I am not sure really if these two games Back to the Future and Swords and Soldiers are really games I would play. I guess I will give them a shot and download it and if I don’t like it I will just delete them. We should really be getting recent content for our free games. I loved the Hydrophobia prophecy and even last month with the Marvel Pinball and Tomb Raider was really my favorite month since I subscribed.

I recently read somewhere that if you don’t renew your subscription that you lose all the free games and on top of that all of those games trophy’s all disappear is this true ??? If this is true than that is really disappointing.

Again I wish there was some way we could make it so that on the XMB the plus users would have the chance to choose which game they want. Games of relevance new games coming out in the current month.

And is it just me or does the automatic download not work correctly. When i add games to download overnight the next day when i turn my PS3 they are not downloaded. It eventually took 3 days for it to find download any words on why that is happening ?

Hi There!

I was wondering if you guys will be able to add


to your PS One list for psp purchases? These are two games I would easily pay $9.99 for. I know quite a few people who would download these games in a heartbeat!

Thank you guys for what you have done so far! Just wanted to ask, thanks!

Where is Nightmare Creatures? Rob Zombie better not be holding that back. Would love to see that as a movie, Rob! Stop with the remakes for a bit. There are sooooo many great ps1 classics out there.
Back to ps3, I just want to add that Diablo 3 on psn would be a major success. I would like to hear more about it coming to ps3.

Blitz is so %$? coollllllllll. ! Just like old great time with demonoid and free dreamcast game. I’ll hope lot of people will buy it so maybe it will be a super game for all console to come. FFUUUMMMBBBBLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEE !
Anyone know if resistance will get better i am so highly disapointed of that 120 players online. Should have bought MF3. But Skyrim So nice!!! and RockSmith just insanely good working for me. I have always find difficulty to switch my finger with tabs/note on paper or comp. but with that it’s RIGHT IN MY FACE. This is a kind of game i was not understanding why it was not like that teacher teach student and now with school free and a little 80$ like 3 month in a week. PS3 now could go RockSmith WAY at least it’s learning usefull thing and it’s less MindBlasting than CoD Black Ops.

What about Brave Fencer Musashi I am shocked it’s not already there… BTW it’s kinda long for the new Twisted Metal… WHY NOT PUTTING PS2 TWISTED METAL BLACK


Thps 2

WHY NO MUSIC UNLIMITED IN CANADA AND A WORKING INTERNET BROWSER WITH A GOOD FLASH PLAYER OR A YOUTUBE THAT WE CAN PRESS OK FOR SEARCHING SOMETHING instead of the OK button that Pop Keyboard with menu at the end of the page. PS3 Fan will vanish if we feel that SCEA never do what we suggest.I have lost lot of $$ (about) 50$ with wrong game version …(some doesn’t say PS3 only or PSP only, same with miniS) like tetris, uno game, GT5 double buy car pack ….. like 15 car in double…..omg. and can we A DAY maybe rearrange downloadable contents or have option to delete old demo stuck in the list. I am almost at 500 items with 75 maybe 100 of scheisse Demo

Well i feel better until next FAIL.

Is there anything to do except jailbreaking with broken PS3 with PS2 Emulation working.. My cd ok dvd ok but blu ray is dead can i migrated one so the other can get PS2 Emulation or can we put more ram in one turn it into a unix computer or anything better than the PS2/PS1 super 600$ console bundle i have
