Morgan, as the number of the titles in the collection grows, the need to manage the hard drive contents grows. Any plans for titles management program.

May 13th, 2:45 pm

the reason I have plus is that games I have never played and likely wouldn’t have, I get to try. I tried Infamous, then bought the collection, tried darksiders bought darksiders 2, etc etc

Knytt Underground, never heard of it but I’m going to download it and check it out, :) thanks PS+

If Sony is hurting for fresh titles and HAS to pass off PSP titles to us…..that’s business, I got it. As long as you give me “WTF: Work Time Fun” as the first PSP title I promise not to complain. That one helped me out during a deployment.

Hey Morgan – tweeted this at you but didn’t get a response, so I’d figure I’d try here:

Any chance of Disgaea 3 coming back into the Playstation Plus download list? I saw that it was free to download in late April and ordered a PS Vita (my first Playstation product!) and PS Plus, but by the time I received my Vita and tried to download it, it was already pulled from Playstation Plus :(.

Also – what’s the best way to leave feedback for what games we’d like to see available through Playstation Plus? Saw that Zero Escape is available for EU Playstation Plus subscribers, and I’d love to have that added to the US list! Thanks in advance.

Great stuff this week. I already own Knytt but I’m glad more get to enjoy it. It’s quite unique and fun.

As for the poll question, I voted no PSP games… but I wanted to clarify a bit. I’m all for the absolute God Tier PSP games being in there. Like Final Fantasy Tactics – that was great. Tekken and Soul Caliber are fairly mediocre fighters and I felt like those picks were a waste, especially them both being 3D fighters. I feel bad for people who don’t like fighters at all because we have those two and now a 2d fighter coming at the end of the month. I love fighting games but that’s a bit overboard. Especially considering that none of them are Street Fighter.

But yeah, if you add the Final Fantasies, the ratchet and clanks, the god of wars, rpgs like Jeanne D’Arc (which does work if transferred from a ps3) or Tactics Ogre. Any stuff on that tier from the PSP – heck yeah, add that. But Tekken then Soul Caliber? Honestly there are minis I want more than those.

I’m very happy to see that PS+ members will be getting a 20% discount on a brand new game the day that it’s released. I would like to see more of these discounts on brand new games in the future.

Keep up the good work!!!

famousmortimer said:

May 13th, 3:02 pm

Yeah, I definitely forgot to add that discounts on brand new titles make me go from probably skipping to probably buying.

Go tell every publisher this! Or, for my wallet’s sake, don’t.

Optimizm said:

May 13th, 3:12 pm

OMG…discounted Metro: Last Light? Heck yeah! Take my money now! But, what about the folks with PS+ that pre-ordered the game already? Are they going to receive the difference back? Just curious.

Ghostwize said:

May 13th, 3:28 pm

Great discount on Metro. No other discounts to speak of though? There are usually a litany of discounts every week. :(

Ghostwize said:

May 13th, 3:30 pm

Oh and I bought Knytt when it was discounted not to long ago. Kind of a cruddy thing but w/e. Game gets fairly boring. It ain’t no Guacamelee that’s for sure! :D

DeathGazer said:

May 13th, 3:33 pm

Vita + PS Plus has renewed my interest for handheld gaming. Can’t wait for Knytt, loved the demo.

Also nice day 1 discount for Metro. Wish BioShock had that.

Sneeches said:

May 13th, 4:08 pm

Awesome update this week. Will be picking up Metro and with a discount that’s even better.

Thanks Sony.

ocray said:

May 13th, 4:11 pm

I signed up for PS Plus to play Vita games not psp so please give it a rest!!!


May 13th, 4:21 pm

Are you going to include Ranger Mode on the Metro last light digital version???? Please anwser

Pawz4DaCause said:

May 13th, 4:22 pm

Would it be possible to get an exact time for when the ps3 store will update? I am very eagerly waiting for the arrival of Krieg.

Mando44646 said:

May 13th, 4:27 pm

@115, PSN updates whenever Sony feels like it. Not at all consistent like Steam or Live

veryhoudini11 said:

May 13th, 4:52 pm

@45 games aren’t 60 dollars due to resale value. AAA titles are extremely expensive to make.

TJF588 said:

May 13th, 4:54 pm

While I’m most looking forward to Knytt Underground, I voted the 20% launch discount of a “Full Game”.

And YES, KEEP PSP GAMES IN ROTATION! But, auf caurse, STOP WITH THE FIGHTING GAMES. We’re inundated, and even adding the Vita version of Mortal Kombat would be soured by the oversaturation.

ALEX87PS said:

May 13th, 5:09 pm

I voted NO MORE PSP GAMES, we invested $270 (tax included) in our VITAs and the expensive memory card so it would be so nice if you guys gave us VITA GAMES instead of psp games on the IGC.

and for the love of god, rotate out Infamous 2, LBP 2 and Ratchet and clank!!!, new games please!!

Ghostwize said:

May 13th, 5:09 pm

More PSP RPGs. So many games on there that don’t get the recognition they deserve. :D

dayvhide said:

May 13th, 5:12 pm

I wish I knew about the discount for Metro sooner. Now I just have to hope my cancellation for metro goes through on amazon. I want to take advantage of that discount.

dayvhide said:

May 13th, 5:15 pm

Sweet my cancellation on amazon went through. I will take $48 price over a $63 any day.

TJF588 said:

!104 itshei – By that time the Sony Entertainment Network Store was up for browsers; everything but PlayStation Mobile and in-game purchases are available there. The URL is long, but Store Update posts link to new drops’ Store pages.

Tracidic said:

May 13th, 5:28 pm

Is the Metro: Last Light limited edition digital?

TJF588 said:

May 13th, 5:37 pm

FTR: Fighting games are fine — especially if they have online capabilities, unlike the last two PSP fighters (one of which has a PS3 variant) — but again, it’s the saturation. There’s love for BlazBlue here, but I’m sure plenty are rolling their eyes even at it after its forebears’ marathon. They should go on a vacation; separation makes the Skull Heart grow fonder.

Squiggle55 said:

May 13th, 5:57 pm

People asking for the evergreen titles to be rotated out still make absolutely no sense. Let’s say Sleeping Dogs replaced LittleBigPlanet 2 last week. What difference would it make to you? Do you understand yet?

PrimeroIncognito said:

May 13th, 6:06 pm

@ Squiggle55

No, they don’t understand.

These are probably the same people who believe that indie games are somehow “taking up spots” where big budget titles could go.

They’re quite ignorant, to say the least.

Hayterfan said:

May 13th, 6:06 pm

Damn was actually going to wait a bit for Metro, but I might go ahead and DL it tommorow, as for GRID2 I find it hilarious that I just picked up the first one and the second is on sale on the store. Speaking of stuff by Codemasters any chance of Dirt 3 Complete Edition making it to the PS Store, I know it was published by THQ but finding a copy of Dirt 3 has been a pain in my ass.
Anyway nice deals

PrimeroIncognito said:

May 13th, 6:08 pm

And when I say “taking up spots”, I’m not even referring to the IGC. I’m talking about the general flow of game development and releases to the public.

Murilo_Barrozo said:

May 13th, 6:09 pm

Good evening, they look like great games for PS3. but i expected some better games especially for vita. and 10% Discount arent enought to fill up your HD with a game the discount needs to be bigger to be worth the download especially for vita as well. when you need to buy a memory card 32GB for 85 bucks. you guys need to put better price for online purchases or else it is worth using the game cards.

When will you guys release Themes and background for Vita?

PrimeroIncognito said:

May 13th, 6:13 pm

@ Hayterfan

Damn, my local Target had tons of copies of the DiRT 3 Complete Edition for $19.99 for a looooong time. Then they suddenly disappeared.

Now the price is jacked up on Amazon. Hmm. Wonder what happened. You should try DiRT Showdown if you like those games though. It’s really fun, and quite cheap now.

Neokirby001 said:

May 13th, 6:33 pm

looking forward to trying out Knytt on vita :D
hope yall still suport PSP games for PlayStation Plus wether its with free games or Discounts. Hope to see a sale for BR shooter ;)

Hayterfan said:

May 13th, 6:36 pm

@132 Never actually played Dirt, but I heard Dirt 3 was the best of the 3 so id figured id pick it up if I can find it, also didnt the game lock you out of single player if you didnt have the online pass?

PrimeroIncognito said:

May 13th, 6:52 pm

@ Hayterfan

Well, I can’t answer any questions about DiRT 3, as I don’t own it. I only have DiRT Showdown.

As far as being locked out of single player without an online pass is concerned, well, I never buy used games, only new, so, all my games always have online passes included already. So I can’t answer that either. This is also the first time I’ve heard anything about that, so I don’t know. I hope it’s not true. That would blow.

But I can definitely recommend DiRT Showdown if you like more “arcadey” handling and physics. Actually, Showdown kinda blurs the line between the two. It’s not really too lop-sided one way or the other. And if you like destruction derby and trick racing events, along with standard racing, you should like it. The online community was still fairly active the last time I got on there as well. Pretty good soundtrack, too. In fact, I’ve been itching to play it again recently… I’m probably going to get on there tonight… :)

Enjoy having the PSP games as part of the collection as I do not have a Vita yet and am still using it. Looking forward to Knytt.

bigimpactpooch said:

May 13th, 7:21 pm

Hopefully I win a 12month ps plus from the promo! I’ve been going in on twitter… I will be in that PsPlus zaz once again and save some mula!

KnifingGrimace said:

May 13th, 7:30 pm

Less PSP Fighters, more PSP RPGs!

Also, I would love to see more of the PSP and PSX library available for play on the Vita. There’s a ton of junk I want to buy but ultimately pass on because I can’t play the stuff.

sparepart said:

May 13th, 8:09 pm

How is it a few poeple whine about getting PSP games and they make a poll. But when people ask to get the PS3 and Vita games on alternat weeks (instead of PS3 the first half of the month and PSVita in the last half.) they do not bother making a poll? I enjoy having PSP games as part of the IGC, and would be disapointed to see them removed because a few whiners expect all AAA PSVita titles in the IGC. So far we have still had both Vita and PSP games each month, so I would prefer to continue seeing that. Or at least alternate the PSP/PSX/PS Mini games for one of the weeks each month.

my360broke_again said:

May 13th, 8:20 pm

kinda lame cause Kynnt was on sale for like 2 bucks just a few weeks ago!

axiashi2112 said:

May 13th, 8:32 pm

Hey Morgan. Im assuming you work for Playstation so you should tell the higher-ups to add some final fantasy games to the IGC. Besides that, keep up the great work.

Did I see something about Blazblue?

axiashi2112 said:

May 13th, 8:40 pm

Add Atelier Totori Plus to the IGC

Choga said:

May 13th, 8:46 pm

When are we going to see ratchet deadlocked HD on the ps store!!

twiztidlegend said:

May 13th, 9:05 pm

Morgan I want to let you guys know all these Indie Games are nothing but a huge disappointment. I thought you guys would actually realize that all your doing is bothering real gamers but, for some reason you just don’t realize that all your doing is making yourselves look bad and Sony look bad. Your more of a disappointment than when a fat kid tries to go running. These Indie Games you start to play them about oh 3 minutes in you realize wow this sucks. So I want you to know if you guys keep adding these joke of a games your going to not only lose my business but also your going to lose the business of all those that I referred to Playstation Plus. I prefer not to be jerked around by my entertainment company. I have a wife for that I don’t need it coming from the company that is supposed to have my back and add decent things. So honestly you guys really either need to step it up or just bow out gracefully because this is a joke.

EvyatarAtarEvyat said:

May 13th, 9:08 pm

Hello Morgan,about the PSP games I think the best solution would be to put a GREAT PSP game every 3 months or so and that way people will get their vita games as well as good psp games.

OffHandStar said:

May 13th, 9:09 pm

I used to be a huge xbox fan but now that I have a ps3 I can see everything ive missed out on and am soo glad I switched!!!

twiztidlegend said:

May 13th, 9:09 pm

NOTE*** You started heading in the right direction when you added Sleeping Dogs but then you immediately reverted back to horrible Indie Trash. Trash because I can’t even call those games anymore. So I honestly hope you guys can pull your heads out because I feel the only individuals your targeting with these games are 6 year olds and isn’t that kind of pathetic considering that’s the entire reason you put little big planet 2 on there? So hopefully you actually read this and consider it.


twiztidlegend said:

May 13th, 9:15 pm

The fact is that the INDIE TRASH they keep adding may not be taking up space like all the naïve people may seem
BUT if they would quit adding the INDIE TRASH then they may actually spend sometime putting good things not only on the network but also may put more games that are actually worth it on the network.
2nd if you lowered the prices on certain older ps3 titles on the network i’m sure you would sell significantly more downloads. I like purchasing games through download on the network but most of the time I can go to gamestop( who are ridiculously over priced) and get the older games like the 1st and 2nd Uncharted and Deadspace 2 for cheaper than I can through the playstation network and that’s kind of sad considering you guys should have the cheapest price you have the easiest access and have fairly low cost of posting games considering its your own network…

W1Ch0- said:

May 13th, 9:32 pm

I never had the chance to thank you for all the free games guys, thank you… Thats from the bottom of my heart. And I wonder how the heck can you permit all these games coming free for us, dunno but its freaking great! Morgan, what is coming for the celebration of the PS4 in the E3 this year? I know you guys, will surprise the **** out of me lol =) Thanks

mhn5 said:

May 13th, 9:55 pm

PS+ scares me now. Why? Because when a game I like is on sale,im afraid to buy it, in fear that PS+ will release it for free later on. Never the less,I love plus for handing out awesome stuff like this. I have sleeping dogs already,but why not download it again,it’ll be more convienient to play once it’s in the system.
