The Missing Link DLC for Deus Ex is totally worth it, by the way. One of the best story DLCs I’ve ever played and a must if you enjoyed Deus Ex as much as I did.

Where are the FFXV and KHIII trailers, Grace? I need them, you understand that don’t you. I NEED THEM.

The ps store wont let me put funds in my wallet

Binarynova said:

June 18th, 3:47 pm

@101: I’ll add “Final Fantasy Anniversary” and “Final Fantasy II”.

Those games are available in Japan and Europe, but still not in the US. There’s no good reason not to release them here, Sony/Square. I want to give you my money!

Omii132 said:

Hello Kristine!

Please tell the PSN team, that Plus members need an option to buy games on sale even if they were offered as a free download. For example: Guardians of Middle Earth for 3.75$ was something i wanted to buy, but i couldn´t.

And who would like to see a BATEN KAITOS Chronicles release? ;)

Also, i agree with a Dark Cloud 2 release as a PS2 classic, please let them know we WANT that game.

Thanks in advance!


SnowForge said:

June 18th, 3:51 pm

I have to agree with everyone else clamoring for SCEA to Update the PS Vita Store with all the PSP and PS1 Classics that are currently missing. There have been very few if any additions over the past few months, and it’s frustrating that so many great games that could relatively easily be made playable on the VIta haven’t been. Please, SCEA, expand the Vita’s library with games that it can and should already play.

rinearson said:

June 18th, 4:05 pm

Please consider Final Fantasy XII as a downloadable title in the future. Thank you for all the great games!

DCS-Tekken said:

June 18th, 4:08 pm

@16 PS4 would most likely have it’s own Limit…

Stuff from our PS3, wouldn’t work on PS4 anyways… So it have to be Seperate anyways…

Zonnex said:

June 18th, 4:09 pm

@101 I second this on Final Fantasy V.

Along with the hope for the US release date of Tekken 3 (only available now in Japan) and Fear Effect 1 & 2 (only available now in UK) for the PS3/Vita/PSP, what about Final Fantasy V compatible for the Vita in the US?

I had already contacted SquareEnix a while back and they responded saying that Sony, that handles the PSN, are responsible for this. However I heard vice versa. Can someone clear the confusion up and make it available for the Vita. it’s weird to see Final Fantasy V missing in my FF Vita Collection Folder.

DCS-Tekken said:

June 18th, 4:10 pm

Speaking of PRICE cuts Sony? We need a Price Cut on Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition u still have it listed at A WHOPPING! 49.99 when it’s only 19.99 at Retail Stores!

PLEASE do a Price Cut on Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition! Or better yet how giving that one as a FREE game for PS Plus Members… Even Better….

ShinNaraku said:

June 18th, 4:12 pm

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence? My favorite Castlevania! Awesome. When are we getting Capcom Vs. SNK 2, though? I’ve been waiting on that since the end of April. Well, that’s when Capcom said it would be in stores.

SamHain19 said:

I was going to buy Saints Row a while back during a Steam sale. Glad I waited!

ElektroDragon said:

No Plus discount for Gianna Sisters is LAME!!!!

ElektroDragon said:

June 18th, 4:26 pm

Also please STOP making Soul Calibur and God Eater Burst look like Vita games in your Plus advertising.

It’s disingenuous!

TheDeity said:

June 18th, 4:28 pm

for the past couple weeks I was so excited to get the Jak and Daxter Collection but the more I read about it, it sounds like its a poorly done port with frame rate issues…I haven’t played it myself so I can’t verify if this is correct, but there seem to be ALOT of people complaining about this problem…its a shame cuz I’ve never played these games before and was really looking forward to buying this collection…hopefully its fixed soon before I just decide to pass on it completely

PhillyTheCat said:

June 18th, 4:38 pm

I’m going to add to the “millions” of VITA owners out there experiencing the Freezing issue that happens during an attempt to download a game. Instead of it processing the download, the screen that reads “Preparing to download” stays on & the loading bar spins endlessly. When you click Cancel, the screen goes dim & nothing happens. The only option is to turn the Vita off & back on again. This process can happen multiple times back to back before the game finally gets downloaded correctly. I’m currently experiencing this for Good Easter Burst. I believe a Grand Patch is necessary to remedy this.

Also, Silent Hill games cannot be downloaded on the Vita store.

Shaking my head….I thought you loved Survival Horror Sony…what happened?

Zionine said:

June 18th, 4:41 pm

Honestly.. playing through the first level in Jak… It’s tolerable. probably 30 FPS with some hang up due to too much happening.

It’s worth the money for Jak on the go.

PS2 titles on the Vita… I like what this implies.

sh1nk31 said:

Any word on when is Hotline Miami being released?

igorrocks2 said:

June 18th, 5:11 pm

Okay, One question… Where are Last of Us day 1 DLC’s?

TJF588 said:

June 18th, 5:13 pm

Whoa-oh, Storm’s back. Guess I can wipe its seasonal trailers off my system, now.

Hngh, wanna have Giana on PS3, but I already have it on PC and am not in the market for a full-price anything.

For sales, though, eyin’ the Journey and Patapon costumes in the LBPs, and perhaps the smaller half-off DXHR add-ons. Already have many other sale items, such as flOw, Flower, and Hell Yeah!, though I’d be interested in a deep discount on its add-ons alone.

That Carnivores bundle… super-old news? I’ve seen those two bundled plenty of times (and smiled inside, seeing the Store recognize my separate acquisitions together).

LAMENT OF INNOCENCE! Good to see one of the two PS2 CV releases re-released! Now begins Curse of Darkness’s countdown…

Got an e-mail about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme and episode, but you’re not mentioning the former’s temporary freeb-ness here?

Aaand, while I’m anticipant of Gods Eater Burst (which now sounds better to me than “God Eater Burst”, strangely), the IGC image needs to stop applying the same banner to PSP games as it does Vita-native titles. I’m in an odd camp, it seems, having a PSP and no Vita, so plainly seeing what I can use is preferable.

igorrocks2 said:

June 18th, 5:32 pm

ok I think I miss read but I guess i will buy Season pas later next week or so this game deserved it eager to see whats ND will bring to PS4

gingermidget said:

June 18th, 5:51 pm

any news on The Last of Us grounded making of will be out?

pgem1978 said:

I have been waiting for Castlevania Lamment of Innocence since the ps2 classics feature was introduced. Downloading it right now. You made me happy sony.

kingelectric8509 said:

June 18th, 6:12 pm

It’s disappointing that those who actually purchased the disc version of the Jak and Daxter Collection for PS3 are unable to download the game to the PS Vita for free.

bLiNdSiDe82 said:

June 18th, 6:12 pm

The Jak and Daxter Collection frame rate is a joke. I can’t believe it was even released in its current state. There should be at least acknowledgement of the issues with the framerate and control responsiveness, and a patch needs to be a priority.

zingakun said:

June 18th, 6:13 pm

Hey, flOw and Flower have a PS+ discount. Don’t know if you guys forgot to mention it in this post, but thank you!

You’re joking, right? So, any disc based game that comes to the Vita digitally, you think should be free?? Yea, that would encourage developers to keep making Vita games, so they can keep losing money…..Never going to happen, so keep dreaming.

“The online service has been terminated.”

Sooo… White Knight Chronicles was utterly destroyed for no real reason in exchange for… Matt Hazard?

Not really a fair trade, if you ask me.

(HARD MODE: Can anyone recommend me another PS3 MMORPG with a high fantasy setting, character customization, lobbies, an in-game message board and no monthly subscription fee?)

saab01 said:

June 18th, 7:18 pm

Does any other plus members know of a workaround for the system software update automatic download. I have my PS3 set to download all new patches and software updates but like always tomorrow when I turn on my PS3 its going to say system software 4.45 has downloaded and installed on my PS3 but its not true. When I go to system settings it will say firmware 4.41 so I have to go and download the firmware than install. Any news on how to actually get the PS3 to download and install the update correctly???

DJBennett1985 said:

PrimeroIncognito said:

June 18th, 7:43 pm

Is this one of those mandatory updates? Or can I get into the store without it? Sorry for asking a dumb question, but I’m away from my PS3 right now so I can’t check it myself.
