I was actually going to go to Best Buy after work tonight to pick up the ZOE collection (upon hearing of the ZOE2 patch) but I might actually hold off to see what the pricing is like for the digital releases.

THANK YOU for putting up ZOE2! I have ZOE1 for PS2 and it’s not worth buying again. But ZOE2 was rare on PS2, and there was a special edition that North America never saw. The HD edition is based on the PS2 special edition, so I am totally buying it!

I think it would be really awesome if they added the digimon world and digimon rumble arena titles to the PS and PS2 classics library but I doubt that’ll ever happen

I see it”s going to be another week of PSN’s incompetence when it comes to getting DLC. New S.T.A.R. missions for “Injustice” are to be released “TODAY” & not “10 YEARS”! Look, I don’t CARE about “lame games” & all I want is THE NEW DLC THAT’S SUPPOSED TO BE OUT BY NOW ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

July 23rd, 3:53 pm

What, Injustice Season Pass owners DO NOT GET ANY ACCESS TO TODAY’S DLC, BUT THOSE WHO DIDN’T EVEN BUY THE SEASON PASS “GARBAGE” GETS “1ST DIBBS”?! What kind of RIP-OFF RACKET does PSN have going?! I WANT A FULL REFUND ON THAT “LAME” SEASON PASS TODAY!!!!!!! I would be GLAD TO BUY IT , but the LAME TRASH PSN STORE keeps saying “UNAVAILABLE DUE TO ME PURCHASING THE SEASON PASS”!!! What kind of WRONG is THAT?! When it comes to online service, YOU ARE PATHETIC PSN!!! I want my refund NOW & I’ll be GLAD to buy everything WITHOUT a Season Pass because at least I know I’d have the DLC ON TIME. X-BOX ONE INDEED!!! You only “dig your own grave”, Sony!!!!!!!!

DarthSchrader666 said:

July 23rd, 3:56 pm

Talk your trash,but the very moment I defend myself, you go CRYING to PSN with a “Grief Report”, just like all the other little “kids” on PSN. “Troll”. LOL at “noob talk”.
