@44 you should just do what I started doing and don’t even bother looking forward to free plus stuff…it’s been nothing but disappointment for the US customers and absolute awesomeness for the European customers for like…a year..but odds are we’ll get some horrible psn game this week

@1 STHU man Square already announced a KH1.5 HD remake, includes 3 games. Wait on that.

It’s sad that Sony isn’t putting on anything good, they were doing well last year, and now no good demos, DLC,movies, and games. It’s strange? hopefully before Christmas break they got something good?

meh really weak drop. Not interested in San Andreas unless its an HD remake with trophies. Interested to see what the 2 free Plus Games are.

GTA: San andreas is coming for vita?

TylerTheDestroye said:

December 9th, 7:09 pm

#1, you should really talk to Square-Enix about that.
#46, every game needs a DEMO. Every new (and I mean NEW- not PS classics) game should have one, and it should be released BEFORE the game- not the same day, not a week later- a week BEFORE, at least.

Also, let me just say something about all these impatient people posting comments saying “we want this game compatible on Vita. We want this classic. We want Kingdom Hearts eleventy and a half Super-Drop-Your-Eye-Balls-Sexy-Ultra-High Definition Remix on PS7 and PSPortibleBatComputer.” You don’t work at Sony. You don’t know what’s going on inside their offices. I don’t either, but I would assume they’re working on some sort of schedule, and each region has its own schedule. You need to be patient with these people. They’re humans, working hard to give you all toys for Christmas. Not machines.

I’m a Playstation Plus subscriber but they charged me 19.99 for the download… not cool

December 9th, 7:18 pm

Really rockstar!…Why can’t we get the HD treatment for San Andreas
with trophys. I still have my origanial copy and believe me it didn’t look
as good running in my ps3. It could use the HD boost !

Ryumoau said:

December 9th, 7:22 pm

@57 agreed. Sony should make it mandatory for every psn game to have a demo released. Microsoft has had that implimented even back when i used the 360 years ago.

As much as i love sony, it feels like they are shafting US users in terms of content, xD

psn needs to refund me for alice madness returns ultimate edition before i make another store purchase

B-I-G-_-R-O-B said:

December 9th, 7:42 pm

i purchased alice madness returns ultimate edition and didn’t recieve my american mcgees alice dlc this is how psn shows customer appreciation by stealing from us this makes no sense for them not to fix this problem asap an i want GTA San Andreas but they might steal my 10 bucks so no more purchases for me thanks psn.

Did anyone NOT receive their email for the “spend $60 get $10 back” promo?
I did not receive my $10,
Could a SEN rep point me in the right direction, please and thank you

Believe it or not but I’ve never played a single GTA game, so Tuesday will be a good time to start. Nice warm up for GTA V.

Dantexl said:

December 9th, 7:47 pm

Black Knight Sword!!!! hell yeah!!!!! I waiting for this game so long, the art is impresive, a very great and original work, thanks for this. Every one need to give a chance to this game.

Ryumoau said:

December 9th, 7:52 pm

@67 i’ll try the demo but not buying it if its over $9.99. I haven’t been a fan of any of Suda 51’s previous games.

Ryumoau said:

December 9th, 7:55 pm

Europe is getting Big Sky Infinite, so for once i’m actually hoping we don’t get a game they have. It looks incredibly generic and boring. don’t want our free game slot wasted on a cheap stick shooter psn title.

jellis2851 said:

December 9th, 7:57 pm

Where is wake up club? we were told in the summer we’d have it but its now december. what gives?

nolo451 said:

December 9th, 7:58 pm

lol @ BuM87, you get way too hurt over this. Does it make you at least a TINY bit happy knowing I’m content?


nolo451 said:

December 9th, 8:00 pm

“I’m a mouth breather and think Sony is shafting the U.S. and they are out to give us the worst possible games on purpose and they are laughing at us”

Guess I have these types of comments to look forward to each week. So funny seeing these types of comments.

spocar said:

December 9th, 8:01 pm

Are you planning on putting Crash Bandicooot the Warth of Cortex or Crash Twinsanity? those should be in the PS2 classics.

Nick930930 said:

December 9th, 8:12 pm

Please release the following :

-Tony Hawk Underground
-Tony Hawk Underground 2
-Tony Hawk American Wasteland


BuM87 said:

December 9th, 8:52 pm

@nolo451 im glad you like it at least someone get happy with it but its not paying for me, where i liv3e the vendors charge extra for the psn cards i pay like 75 $ for a 50 $ card so im pretty pissed off but hey if it works for you great! it sure doesn’t work for me not going to renew and i looking at cfw with lust in my eyes right now lol, not going to get it because i love my mp and im to proud of my trophy list to get banned

December 9th, 8:53 pm

The one games that I want to be one a drop is Phantasy Star Universe for ps2 plus the expansion Ambition of the Illuminus. Is that to much to hope for I would love an HD remake of this game an I would pay 59.99 for the both of them (I would prefer to pay less, but would go all out for this game).

Dookykong said:

December 9th, 8:57 pm

@6 lol i converted like 6 people only one is b****** about game update installs, if i gave him a ps+ trial i think he’ll shut up. 2 bought vita’s 4 bought ps3’s 1 doesn’t know if he wants another xbox or if he should get a vita or ps3… i think i got em.

What’s up with San Andreas in the post? All but two lines about the game are now gone from the post.

December 9th, 9:00 pm

Preview video for Big Sky Infinity shows it is intended to be part of the IGC at the end, congrats to those people interested in this sort of game.

BuM87 said:

December 9th, 9:25 pm

@79 dont get hope so high about it its the exact same video of th EU blog

blakseed said:

December 9th, 9:37 pm

SA is the best GTA (imo). Since I don’t have it on disk anymore, I might have to scoop that up.

saab01 said:

December 9th, 9:41 pm

Its nice to see that Big Sky Infinity is the next Plus game for this week. I like when new releases are given to us plus members. I just hope that the 3rd game given to us is also something of interest and something that I don’t have.

antper08 said:

December 9th, 9:48 pm

When are we gonna get GOW Ascension beta?

shb23 said:

December 9th, 9:48 pm

@ #80 BuM87

omg that would be funny, it turns out to be EU only and gives rise to a PSN update blog that is 96% crying about content and comparison’s to SCEU instead the usual 92%.

BuM87 said:

December 9th, 9:52 pm

did you suscribe to the beta before 7th?

MyrequeArk said:

December 9th, 10:10 pm

I surely hope they don’t give us Big Sky: Infinity, not my cuppa tea =(

I’d like to know if there’s gonna be a Black Knight Sword demo next week, I’m always interested in some Suda51 madness, but something is holding me off on this one…

bamahollis88 said:

December 9th, 10:33 pm

I really wouldn’t care if EU got Big Sky Infinity and the US didn’t, I don’t care for games that are just like PC flash games. I don’t see the point in buying games like that; I have played at least a dozen of them on my computer for free.

BuM87 said:

December 9th, 10:39 pm

it depends, i only care if they give us somthing worse than it like swords and sandals

I_Wish_U_WuD said:

December 9th, 10:43 pm

GTA: San Andreas YES YES YES YES YES YES . THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


December 10th, 12:00 am

Ooooh well, thanks for this, at least we have new releases.

Daniel_the_Jew said:

Really trying not to get my hopes up with San Andreas. As much as I want to look forward to it (it is my favorite GTA), when GTA III was first announced for the PSN, it got pulled at the last minute. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar situation here. Especially since Vice City hasn’t been released yet, although for all we know, that might be due to copyright issues due to the music.

PsychoSploosh69 said:

December 10th, 1:02 am

I don’t think they skipped vice city due to licensing issues. R* just released GTA VC 10th anniversary edition on mobile devices dec 6, so maybe R* told sony to hold off on releasing VC for now and release SA instead? R* has been hinting at more to come around xmas, so maybe a 10th anniversary sony version is being planned since it was originally a sony title? It said the mobile version has an improved main character model as well as better controls and textures or something. I just hope it’s not a misprint like max payne 2 being the original instead.

DarkDoc23 said:

December 10th, 1:33 am

@13 Actually, from what I’ve heard, it’s more about Disney than Square-Enix. Square has released several of their games digitally (FF-CC being the exception). Apparently Disney doesn’t want anything with Disney in it released digitally because of pirating.

PrinceofXIII said:

Black Night Sword!!!!!!

SoraNeroSerrah said:

December 10th, 3:08 am

@93 that is a silly comment. Brave, Toy Story, Bolt, Cars 2, Litlle Mermaid, etc. all digital. The reason we don’t get KH is because most Americans play Shooters like Mass Effect and call them RPG’s thus real RPG’s don’t sell well here. Great games like FF 13 and FF 13-2 are critically bashed by americans evn though they are far better than crap like Skyrim and Mass Effect.

BuM87 said:

December 10th, 3:21 am

if you said ni no kuni or maybe ff xii your argument could get stronger since ff xiii is the worst in the series by far in my opinion, by the way totaly agree, mass efect? an rpg? lmao… skyrim was a real dissapointment for me,to simple, they took every rpg element of the series and make it call of duty with swords, i loved new vegas best game bethesda worked on since elder scrolls 2 and 3, ibeg for a xeno gears or chrono chross remake or maybe a tales of the abyss hd a metal max game, somthing, persona5 wold be a nice surprise to

Got up this morning, grabbed a nice cup of hot coffee, seen this drop, and laughed my butt off.
