Yeah, just a little annoyed there’s no set time each week that the update goes live on.

Oh well.

@Antagonist27 How good is zombie driver game?

Antagonist27 said:

January 22nd, 2:00 pm

@sab_krit Zombie Driver is fun for a bit. its good for some all out zombie shooting and running them over. I played it about 5 times. But I always tend to go back to NHL12

come on sony! update the store already, my wallet is ready to be molested by the psn store! Must buy Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Dexter, The Cave, etc.

superfunstudio said:

January 22nd, 2:21 pm

Sony, why you do this to me? I buy your PS3, Vita, your unbelievably prices memory sticks, accessories, games. All I want is not to be strung along by your terrible PR. Give games to PSPlus, or don’t. Die if you want. I supported you when you said words like ‘great’ but ‘wait until next week’ is getting OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD.

Expectations are low, but foosball? Really? Was there no burgertime patch from ColecoVision you could give away? 2013 is calling. Pick it up.

greyedevil said:

January 22nd, 2:24 pm

Great deals and Lots of Move compatible games. I’m waiting for Sony to make a nice Move bundle that includes nav controller + game. Too expensive for me at $100 just for the hardware.

Pikmologist said:

January 22nd, 2:34 pm

When is it being updated?

T-8k8O_ said:

January 22nd, 2:45 pm

Why did I ever get playstation plus.

mnstrings said:

January 22nd, 2:55 pm

@ T-8k8o_

For the great discounts? Cloud Storage? Automatic updates? free weekly PS3 games(almost weekly)? Free Vita games too?

Hmmm, I dunno.

But hey, here’s an easy solution to fix that! DON’T RENEW! YAY! ^.^

danny3755 said:

January 22nd, 3:00 pm

I think its well worth the money like mnstrings says just don’t renew and your problem is solved. The discounts are quite big today, I get bored of people moaning about plus as if Sony forced you to sign up for it. You will not be missed and Sony will not go broke without you.

N_O_D_Darklord said:

January 22nd, 3:12 pm

Has anyone else gotten the store update? I don’t see any of the items yet.

danny3755 said:

January 22nd, 3:14 pm

Nope nothing yet

Volcomkewl said:

January 22nd, 3:20 pm

It’s still not updated and its 6:20pm here in the US as i speak, what’s taking so long? Is it because you’re trying to give us a better game this crap, perhaps?

skrillazoe said:

January 22nd, 3:24 pm

$20 bucks will get you a good bit this week. Can’t wait.

Thebunnyhunter6 said:

January 22nd, 3:33 pm

Hurry up so you can take my money

beandw said:

January 22nd, 3:36 pm

Foosball? Seriously? That’s pretty insulting Sony.

skrillazoe said:

January 22nd, 3:42 pm

@beandw lol coming from someone who’s games are 80% free from psn plus. Do you even buy games and play them?

Antagonist27 said:

January 22nd, 3:49 pm

Too bad you have to buy special shots for Foosball, you think it would be part of the game

re32hana said:

January 22nd, 3:50 pm

Now this is a sale! Wish we got this during the Christmas and New Year holiday break but better late than never. I’ll be going for Shank 2 and Invisible Swan. I wish that add-ons went on sale too though like Asura’s Wrath, all DLC in a bundle, PoP Epilogue,etc.

TonyTLee17 said:

January 22nd, 3:51 pm

What time does it start for the u.s?

PrimeroIncognito said:

January 22nd, 4:08 pm

@ Antagonist27

Please don’t post inaccurate information.

All the trick shots can be unlocked with stars that you earn throughout the campaign. Even the “bonus cities” DLC can be unlocked with stars. You don’t need to purchase any DLC if you don’t want to.

January 22nd, 4:11 pm

Umm where is the update? none of this is available to me right now?

danny3755 said:

January 22nd, 4:11 pm

Does anyone know if the store normally takes this much time i have never had the day off work before dont get back till like 9PM so its always updated by then. Trying my best to be patient….. lol

PrimeroIncognito said:

January 22nd, 4:16 pm


Usually it’s done by now, but every once in a while it’s like this. I just got back home from running errands and I was kinda surprised to see that it hadn’t updated yet, but, late updates have happened before.

danny3755 said:

January 22nd, 4:17 pm

EZaxess said:

January 22nd, 4:19 pm

Yuranium said:

January 22nd, 4:27 pm

Ahhh… Sony why? Need the store updated. It’s torturing me. Ni No Kuni… I’m waiting… My wallet is waiting, too…

waylander90232 said:

January 22nd, 4:35 pm

venkat015 said:

January 22nd, 4:42 pm

Been trying to find out how to buy tiger woods PGA tour 13… Anyone know when it will be discounted because as of right nownthe playstation store still lists it at $39.99…isn’t it discounted to $19.99? Is it better to pay with credit card or buy a playstation network card and redeem the code?

MrGreenTree420 said:

January 22nd, 4:43 pm

So just bought a 20$ card and my PSN isn’t updated there is no discounts? Please help

N_O_D_Darklord said:

January 22nd, 4:44 pm

Don_Knotts said:

January 22nd, 4:46 pm

Now I feel like a real tool buying LBP Karting for 60 it clearly wasn’t worth that and now I could have got it for 10…
:C A 50 dollar sale cut in only 2 months.
That will teach me to buy things.

josevelasquezf said:

January 22nd, 4:56 pm

Update, I’m waiting for you… I want LBP Karting (since in my country retail price is near US$ 70, the PS+ discount makes me very happy)

fatdog21 said:

January 22nd, 4:59 pm

liberi_ said:

LiquidGhostFox said:

January 22nd, 5:09 pm

6PM here in the mountain time zone (Utah) Where is the sale?

I swear to god, this always happens. You say your updates are on Tuesday, but at what time? 11:59pm?

It’s bad enough that you won’t let me update my stupid username (LiquidGhostFox), but now I am paying you so that you can make me wait a full 24 hours?

If you aren’t going to update your store on Tuesdays, MARK IT AS WEDNESDAY.

Also… Foosball? seriously?

LiquidGhostFox said:

January 22nd, 5:10 pm

**** like this is why I am HAPPY to pay the Xbox Live Fee…

At least they don’t lie to me, and allow me to do simple things like… you know, update my account.

smushums said:

January 22nd, 5:12 pm

Ok WTH i just check the store and Psychonauts is showing uo for 4.99 . It is suppose to be 2.50 for PS+ subscribers

DigiOps said:

January 22nd, 5:14 pm

What part of updating your account are you having trouble with??

DigiOps said:

January 22nd, 5:17 pm

The store update is live by the way. Downloading LBP Karting right now. :D

nolo451 said:

January 22nd, 5:20 pm


Happy to pay Xbox? Yeah right, I’m sure you love to pay them just to be able to play online.

If Wednesday comes and goes and the store still isn’t updated, THEN you can say they lied to you.

No one has lied to you, calm down.

waylander90232 said:

January 22nd, 5:24 pm

josevelasquezf said:
