Sorry, I would like to know when the Little Big Sale will end? Does it last until next Tuesday?

@250, welmosca, “abstinence crisis”. Pretty funny. Sounds like drug withdrawals. Is that what gaming is to us? Pretty scary, lol.

DeathKiller49 said:

June 19th, 12:31 pm

Pretty sorry to hear the troubles you guys are getting. Honestly, losing your HDD would be terrible, so I apologize for those who formated and lost their saves.
I have a 64 GB Fat PS3, so I guess that’s the reason I didn’t get bricked.

Out of idle curiosity does God Eater Burst for Vita include the DLC?

klassymike said:

June 19th, 12:46 pm


It’s separate but it’s free.

GraveRobberX said:

June 19th, 12:55 pm

How come the European Version of Jak and Daxter collection for the Vita is Cross Buy, yet North American version isn’t?

Can there be parity please

So one region gets an added benefit, while the other has to pay for it?

Lord_Alchemist said:

June 19th, 2:48 pm

have there ever been IGC release of L.A. Noire or metal gear solid peace walker(PS3)?

hazelcabug said:

June 19th, 3:10 pm

THE FRAME RATE IS HORRIBLE! Even a simple ps vita exclusive game is clearer than this.

hazelcabug said:

June 19th, 3:12 pm

30$ is not worthy for this poor port.

SpooNManX said:

June 19th, 3:19 pm

Is it safe to run our PS3’s if we have updated to 4.45?

I can’t seem to get an answer on this and really want to play The Last of Us. I wasn’t able to download the update patch for it last night so I haven’t even made it past the Digital Manual in it. :(

Please let us know.

klassymike said:

June 19th, 3:40 pm

@ Lord_Alchemist

No, nether has been on the IGC. I put a lot of hours in on L.A.Noire. It’s a great game though!

I don’t believe i’ve missed Tomb Raider for $20.

Gamerzlimited said:

June 19th, 5:28 pm

@hazelcabug If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. Stop saying garbage that isn’t true. I wouldn’t believe you if it is.

AnimeKing001 said:

June 19th, 5:31 pm

I want to get the Sonic Master collection, but I already bought Sonic Adventure 2, so it would feel like a waste rebuying the game

SpooNManX said:

June 19th, 5:50 pm

Why do none of the Sonic collections on PSN have Sonic 3?
It might be asking a lot for Sonic & Knuckles, but Sonic 3? Come on…

badreligionbomb said:

June 19th, 6:31 pm

Sony… you owe it to us to keep us updated when things like this occur… you promised back in 2011 … after the PSN hack that you’d NEVER leave us in the blue again… here it is 12 hours since anything was posted on the subject and NOTHING……. fix this and get us back on…. this is ridiculous

Welmosca said:

June 19th, 6:47 pm

@ 252 lisatsunami – Haha I dunno…but I hardly stay one day without play….and when I do stay…well I start to feel strange…you know its weird when you get out of your routine but anyway “abstinence crisis” is the term for me haha….because back in 2011 when PSN got hacked…life felt empty without playing PS3,even though I kept playing PS2.

badreligionbomb said:

June 19th, 7:09 pm

boy oh boy I should go play Dungeons & Dragons on my PS3…. OH WAIT I can’t due to no fault of mine

Demonhunter84 said:

June 19th, 7:50 pm


It’s the same game that was released years ago on PS3. it just wasn’t released on PSN.

Demonhunter84 said:

June 19th, 7:51 pm

For those asking about Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles, I think they are exclusive on the other console. They weren’t even included in Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection.


June 19th, 7:57 pm

We should not love a company and I reserve that word for Grace however, I really like the companies stance for Next-gen and I will be a proud first day buyer of the PS4. That being said, Jak and Daxter collection as good as those games are have been poorly ported to the Vita. With Persona 4 the golden as an example and MGS collection the port of these games are horrendous. Please advise the team who did this to patch or we will not buy the other collections for the Vita if this is the quality of the ports. We have examples of things done right so there are no excuses. Plus, I have only one platinum (sadly) to my credit and that is for the best 3d pure platformer ever made (IMHO) Precursor legacy for the PS3…..

badreligionbomb said:

June 19th, 8:02 pm

Sonic 3 was… just not Sonic and Knuckles

viceforce said:

June 19th, 8:03 pm


So you complaining about EU getting free games in one month While the US already has 60% of that list. Do yourself a favor please find a way to download update 4.45 so you get brick yourself for such idiocy.

TJF588 said:

June 19th, 8:18 pm

@214 trum3n1 – Battlefield 3? Personal mega bleh. PAYDAY: The Heist? Repeat, personal bleh, and not a “full game”. Saints Row: The Third? We…just GOT that, so moot point.

@227 trum3n1 (again) – Even assuming you mean “one update” as in “monthly forecast” (it’s bewildering how many posts from others seemed to think those EU updates were for a single week), we have the same number of actual “full games” (that is, retail releases). Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Saints Row: The Third are both PS3 Full Games, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward was a retail Vita game, Gods Eater Burst was a retail PSP game (as most were before the Vita was released), and we got the same IGC “evergreen” titles as in EU territories, with only Uncharted 3 holding back on being its full package.

SpooNManX said:

June 19th, 8:37 pm

Yes, Sonic 3 was on just about every Sega compilation which included Sonic 1 & 2.
It has been released on both the Wii and Xbox 360, so like usual, PSN was left out.

Sonic and Knuckles is also available on those consoles as well.
This from Wikipedia:
“The game has been re-released on the Wii’s Virtual Console and Xbox 360’s Xbox Live Arcade. Both releases have it programmed where, if any of the “Lock-on” games also downloaded on the same account, the “connected” versions of the game are also available. (If one downloads Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 2, they have the option to play the corresponding Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 game.)”

I think M2 should redo Sonic 1,2,3, S&K and release them under the Sega Vintage Collection name.
I don’t like the forced blurring pixels of the current releases.

JOHNDOE5 said:

i Just bought Jak and Daxter Collection for vita, the frame rate is terrible. Sony please release a patch to fix this, it ruins the experience. :(


Benzitor said:

June 20th, 12:03 am

Is anyone from sony gonna answer about the Jak Collection ???

No appologies ? People DID buy it, and are mostly angry… Don’t you think it is a little sensible situation to not have any message ? How about confirmation for a Patch ? How about crossbuy for every regions ? How about possibility to buy seperate games ?

Not good….really not good… Don’t show a clean face at E3 and then give the finger to your loyal customers. Most off us decided to by this collection regardless the critics… the minimum would be to issue appologies for the bad port and correct it ASAP

trum3n1 said:

June 20th, 1:37 am

Sony loves EU, not US.

s2-8-4-7 said:

June 20th, 3:09 am

PlayStation 2 games that should get released to the PS Store:

1. Crash Twinsanity
2. Sonic Heroes (It’s on the EU PS Store so why not the US store)
3. Need for Speed Underground 1 & 2
4. Jak X: Combat Racing (In HD like the Jak & Daxter Collection)
5. Need for Speed Most Wanted
6. Burnout 3
7. Sonic Riders
8. Tony Hawk’s Underground 2

Zionine said:

June 20th, 4:53 am


The original Jak game had the same exact feel when it came to frame rate.. It’s not that bad.

Jak 2 and 3 are smoother. 3, not so much cause of how much GPU it uses.

Zionine said:

June 20th, 4:55 am

I’m becoming a fan of the Jak Trilogy from playing these ports..
I’d say they’re good quality. I’ve only played them a little bit on the PS2 and a friend of mine, that has played them on the PS2, said they’re playing better on the Vita so that’s clarification.

Thanks for at least putting games on the Vita. No more complaints from this guy. :) I wanted more 3D platformers.

Darkdragongers said:

June 20th, 5:33 am

if you have God Eater Burst can use online from ACHOC Party on Playstation Store download :) enjoy

wilfareus said:

June 20th, 6:30 am

Is Jak & Daxter HD cross-buy? I have the retail PS3 version.
the game is Cross-Buy in EU….

When are the GTA V avatars supposed to arrive?

badreligionbomb said:

June 20th, 10:30 am

24 hours and some change later… and ZOMG shocker…. Sony isn’t saying a single thing about their faulty firmware bricking our consoles… an UPDATE or maybe SOMETHING instead of dead silence would be amazing….

Holz55 said:

June 20th, 11:46 am

Will Vita/PS4 remote play work over the internet or just a local area network?

wally_mammoth said:

June 20th, 12:55 pm

Wish I had somewhere to put all these ps vita and psp games! Still waiting for PS Vita memory card price drop. Until then, I’m just stacking up the files on my ps3, waiting for the day when I don’t have to transfer out game for game on my 4GB memory card. Come on Sony! Price drop is well overdue!

Spyridon56 said:

June 20th, 3:57 pm

I know I’m asking late, but does the single-player Uncharted 3 support 3D? In the menu, the option is there, but the only selection is “Off.”

SpooNManX said:

June 20th, 4:20 pm

Sony really needs to give an update on the bricked consoles.
It’s like when PSN was hacked all over again. They go silent while their customers are unable to play.

Just a quick update saying they are working on it still and will have a fix on xx/xx/xx at xx:xx would be something at least.

Also, reformatting the hard drives and losing all of our content is NOT a fix.
I realize you have to do this stuff to keep people from pirating software, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of honest PlayStation buyers.

WastelandDan said:

June 20th, 6:20 pm

Who the heck doesn’t check out the update before updating these days?
Answer: apparently a lot of people i guess…

Check updates before you use them people, i recommend that on any device.

DarkAxelRoxas said:

leslein97 said:

June 21st, 7:34 am


That makes zero sense. Not only is it the company’s responsibility to have proper quality controls in place to account for these scenarios, but how exactly do you wait for an update unless you have people that execute the update and report issues. So you might want to sit on that sage judgement of people that run the update as they are the ones who allow you to wait.

Welmosca said:

June 21st, 10:20 am

Can’t believe I’ll have to stay 1 week without playing,abstinence crisis is imminent….I never complain but this time you did a fu*** bull**** to us eh Sony?….damn with such a huge backlog its much more than a pain in the a** to lost 1 week of gaming.

michaelbaird24 said:

June 21st, 6:48 pm

Why don’t you put news about the 4.45 update that bricked so many ps3 machines? I have not been able to watch my netfilx or play any games this week. you should at least email people to let them know that you are working on a fix, or you should have to replace my machine. It worked fine till you updated it and now nothing….
I find you customer support to be very lacking and non informative at least you could post you are working on it and not just ignore the problem. sony you really have lost my trust and business. Good Day….. I say

GTA_Gangsta007 said:

Are ya’ll ever going to release Dragon Ball Z : Budokai Tenkaichi Collection on Playstation Store ?

Benzitor said:

June 24th, 8:26 pm

1 week and we still haven’t got a single answer from sony, or ND or anyone involve with Jak collection on Vita…

GREAT MOVE SONY…. It shows how you care

billyjoe23 said:

June 25th, 7:08 pm

The jak and daxter I bought before this does it work now on vita and if it doesn’t work you guys are cheap skates.
