@197 they are only showing games that are coming out in October, so its possible we might get psn copy of Black Ops for November. I’m a bit sad that WWE ’13 wasn’t listed.

Does the cross buy feature still apply? I see that NFS Most Wanted is on the list.

I was hoping RE6 would be a day 1 digital!! Already have 1-5 & CV, now to complete my RE digital collection. Off to Gamestop tomorrow to cancel my retail preorder & preorder on PSN.

xGrandpaGamer said:

September 25th, 7:09 pm

this day 1 digital downloads and pre orders are frankly a waste of money, if you pre order dishonored at gamestop you get the arcane assasin pack wich is awesome. Medal of honor pre order gets a map pack free dlc a beta code for battlefield 3 and a set of missions for seal team 6 hunt for osamah benladin frankly you get more for a physical copy and pre orders it would help if sony would give deals like that for going digital and buying from psn.

Some people complain just to complain. Look I don’t care if the game costs 59.99 that’s still cheaper than buying it at the store when you add in sales tax. The fact that I don’t have to drive there is another + and the fact that PS+ members may get discounts, I got to admit Dishonored wasn’t on my radar, but now I think I will get it just because. The only thing that needs to be addressed is the times the games are available. A midnight availability would be awesome. I’m beginning to prefer digital downloads. Now I don’t have to buy a second copy to put on my kids PS3

Exclusive theme…. you guys can do better than that.

DaZetheMaZe said:

September 25th, 8:58 pm

Day1Fail ! Why is NBA 2k13 limited to one account? First it was cut down from five accounts, now if purchased it can not be played on another account or system. Can someone explain the reasoning with singling out this game. Sometimes I dont know its like one step forward two back with Sony. Can I just get a response.


thebeast1012 said:

September 25th, 9:40 pm

why isnt resident evil 10% off also with ps+? i bought borderlands 2 (GREAT GAME) on psn it was a mistake to buy it on digital copy it didnt come out on midnight, i had to wait the whole day till the store updated at 7pm =(

jonjon0890 said:

Will Black Ops 2, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and Playstation All-Stars be on the psn day one next month?

i pre order fifa 13 and i want to pre order nfs most wanted 2 From psn store
thanks for adding my fav games in psn store
we want more ps3 games in psn

Strikuh said:

September 26th, 4:54 am

Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll take the physical copy. No digital downloads for me. Takes to long to download and requires too much hdd space.

bigdaddyxx said:

September 26th, 6:09 am

Most Wanted will be cool for digital if u have two ps3 ,so if u buy it once n u will have two copies so u and a mate can play it together without spending another $60.

DaSpazo said:

September 26th, 9:00 am

I love this! A discount for PS+ members is a great idea to make up for other places’ pre-order deals. But one problem. I would like to see the release date in the description. I don’t want to have to look it up on my computer. The excitement I had for Doom 3 fizzled when I didn’t see the release date and would have to pry the computer from my girl to look it up.

Mr. Pierre Gravereau, I have a big problem with these digital prices. I called Sony the other day to explain my logic, but the woman I talked to said she wasn’t even a gamer and didn’t know what to say, so maybe you can give me some answers.
Before you use the playstation plus discount as an answer, I realize that it helps a bit. But still, $59.99 for a full game? That’s absolutely ridiculous. Aren’t the only people making money off that digital game Sony and the developers/publishers?? Gamestop doesn’t take a cut nor does Walmart, BestBuy, ect.

ggmbasket said:

September 26th, 12:24 pm

Will NBA 2K13 include the pre-order bonus dlc (allstar weekend)?, if so i will definitely buy it here on the psn store!.

pappy2011gamer said:

September 26th, 12:29 pm

I`ll be downloading the DOOM 3 BFG Edition

Lol got here from Beth blog.
“were sorry we haven’t given you guys dawn guard yet. Here check out the other games will soon some day screw you over with”

gnomekingofpain said:

September 26th, 4:29 pm

Maybe this has been answered somewhere but I cannot find the info anywhere. Whenare you charged if you preorder a game on PSN? I don’t mind putting a few dollars down but am extremely leery of paying in full weeks in advance, especially for a download. Particularly since it is not uncommon for games to be delayed, sometimes for months, occasionally only days before the original release date. Can anybody clarify what is up with the billing?

iamStilbon said:

September 26th, 5:39 pm

Will we be charged the full amount when paying in the PlayStation Plus Store or how will that work?

c0nn0r_pwns_u said:

September 27th, 5:48 am

Will don’t all the games have a playstation plus discount?

Yuranium said:

September 27th, 9:34 am

@ 226 yea it will charge full price as u pre order it. and with hits games like these 8 im sure they wont push back the release date. if u dont want to pay full at once u can pre order it when its about to release.

@ 227 u will get the 10% discount right off the bat when u pre order it. if ur questtion is same as 226 then glance up :)

traderd715 said:

September 27th, 10:45 am

I would also like to know if the All Star game bonus will come with NBA 2K13 if I purchase through PSN. That will make or break it for me. Thanks

blackninja1017 said:

September 27th, 2:13 pm

wait if i preorder a game on psn will the dlc come with it as it do in stores

SnapYoFinger said:

September 27th, 5:43 pm

Amazing news. The only question is if you preorder nba 2k13 do u get the all star weekend dlc free as well like how the retail stores are doing?

theonedreonly said:

September 27th, 6:01 pm

wheres the content that comes with the pre-orders, besides the kick-ass themes.
for instints, bestbuy has all star digital content for nba 13 pre-orders, as well as resident evil digital content, ac3 has the extra mission pre-orders. I reached out to these publisher f with no luck, all they said was it was retailers exclusive content and sent me links too their site.

theonedreonly said:

September 27th, 6:04 pm

well looks like im not the only one curious, just read my other psnerds comments, and now were all in the mist of things. wassamatta?

Demonhunter84 said:

September 27th, 6:15 pm

Nice option for those who prefer digital downloads than physical copies.

Nickdude96 said:

September 27th, 9:40 pm

Does anyone here, staff or my fellow gamers, know why the UK store gets ALL 3 RE6 pre-order bonuses and can download before release to play at midnight upon release? Just curious because I’d love to have gotten those as opposed to nothing on Tuesday :( (Yes I’m still buying digital despite that because of less blu-ray drive wear and tear.) Anyway it’s still nice to have Day-1 a lot more often sony, so thanks.

Btw figure $4 per disc and $2-3 per unit for shipping, there’s you’re $6 reasoning whiners, shut up and stop trolling already. The reason RE6, MOH, and AC3 are full-price is because they’re successful franchises so the companies know they’ll sell regardless of a bit of up-charging. Suck it up, it’s the gaming “industry” whether they love making games or not it’s still a business and the objective is to make money.

Hey Morgan Haro can you please respond to this:

I got a message to my email saying that if I spend 100 dollars in October i get 20 dollar credit. So I bought nba2k13 yesterday but forgot that this was only for October will I still get 20 dollar credit???

GrooThePerverted said:

September 28th, 4:20 pm

I want to get some of these games, but it’s really annoying and defies any and all logic that digital games are damn near full price considering there’s ZERO packaging, shipping, handling costs, no fees for stores selling your product, and technically we don’t even OWN these games.

I just shake my head at the idea that a whole lot of people are going to be paying damn near 60 dollars for Assassins Creed III…oh wait…PSN+ gets a few bucks off so it’s 54.99.

Still incredibly over priced considering it’s simply a digital copy with very little costs towards Sony for hosting and delivering.

There is zero excuse for digital copies of brand new games being this high. Also there are older games that are still 49.99 or so which is equally ridiculous.

I could see charging $49.99 for a day 1 digital release, but 55-60? smh. The greed is overflowing.

TheILLMeThoD said:

September 29th, 1:06 pm

If you pre order nba 2k13 will you get the all star weekend additional content that you get if you pre order it at gamestop?

blitzcloud said:

September 29th, 4:08 pm

Is there any chance RE6 at least comes with the preorder maps like the EU counterpart? Even if it’s for day1 purchases only? That would shift my interest greatly.

Thanks in advance

blitzcloud said:

September 29th, 4:10 pm

#238 You just don’t understand that retail stores would not allow that. It would hurt them greatly, and you’re trying to stock them with products they would rarely sell?

It’s your choice. If you have 2 ps3 in your household, going digital is a great deal to avoid using splitscreen in detriment of image quality.

GrooThePerverted said:

September 29th, 5:44 pm

@241 I’m firmly a digital over physical guy when it comes to video games. I much prefer digital, I just think it’s sheer greed on the part of Sony to still have these games priced at $60 considering there’s no other costs then hosting. I get your point on the retailers not liking it, but the retailers are already going to be mad, but it’s not like they’re going to stop stocking Sony products.

blitzcloud said:

September 29th, 5:52 pm

you could be mad to basically every other online “retailer” for this. It’s not sony who sets the price either way, it’s capcom. Sure a percentage is going to Sony for acting as the distribution service, but the big cut is on capcom. Retailers won’t be “mad” if there’s a fair commerce where they have a RRPP. And looking at it unlike other digital platforms such as steam, I can actually play this content on 2 ps3, unlike the disc.

In fact, the digital leading platform, steam… sells games at a very high price, over retail sometimes even. It’s all dictated by publishers. Unless it’s a sale (again, arranged with the publisher) and people go into an insane buyspree.

I have a question, the games that will be available for pre-order will they be available to pre-load? or will we have to wait till the psn store updates?

zaruchen said:

September 30th, 12:51 pm

I am looking to get Resident Evil 6 , but it comes out in less than 2 days. Is there word of a midnight release for PSN for this title? I want to make sure before I cancel my preorder to get it on PSN. Please let me know

AGs_87 said:

October 1st, 2:10 pm

So I am left wondering at what time are we going to be able to download? I mean it usually takes you guys a while to update the store so it’ll be like 5pm before I can even download nba 2k when i could get it at the store faster

boog2k5 said:

October 1st, 5:10 pm

when you pre order a game will you be able to download it that day as soon as possible or will you have to wait until the playstation store updates

oC3R34LoK1LL3Ro said:

October 1st, 9:04 pm

If I buy NFSMW for PS3, I will be entitled to download for PSVita version too?

JOEMAMMA14 said:

October 1st, 11:08 pm

Oh sweet didn’t notice AC3 was going to be available on day one digital. I was planning on getting a physical copy, but don’t have much cash to spare on games this month. Luckily I still have the money in my PSN account I was planning on using for Dawnguard (but that day’s never going to come) I was debating on what to spend it on. But hey why waist 20 bucks on some DLC I wont have time for in the next fewmonths, and fork over an extra forty bucks for PSN store and get a new game =D Yeah F dawnguard!
