Rise of Iron for me. I’ll also look into The Bunker, Dear Esther, and Virginia as well.

When are themes going to be fixed? I’ve bought 3 over the past couple of days, plus a few that came with pre-orders, and each one I try to download, I keep getting the same error code.

    Venom1976 said:

    September 19th, 2:03 pm

    I was told on the 20th when I messaged support last night.

ernestemarosa said:

September 18th, 1:31 pm

Is there going to be a fix for the pre-order themes not downloading?

    Venom1976 said:

    September 19th, 2:04 pm

    Tomorrow when the store updates they expect to have a fix.

cano74 said:

September 18th, 1:32 pm

Dear Esther! I hope it matches the quality of Everyone’s Gone to the Rapture..

DeathGazer said:

September 18th, 1:35 pm

Virginia for sure. I love games that are influenced by Twin Peaks.

Shamash said:

September 18th, 2:01 pm

Wow people still play Destiny? Even when the expansions are the cost of the game itself? Unbelievable. Grinding moneygrab.. Uhh, yaay?

    chronodiem said:

    September 18th, 4:29 pm

    People do, in fact, still play Destiny. :)

    supremestarhawk said:

    September 18th, 4:48 pm

    The expansion is $30. The full game is $60. That by definition is not the same price.

    TheLinuxGuyz said:

    September 18th, 6:47 pm

    Just got back to it 2 months ago. No multiplayer game with friends in coop pve comes close to this game so far for us unfortunately. Just had to suck it up, and save more for this money grabbin game :D

Vextalon said:

September 18th, 2:20 pm

How about some sales. I got $42 in store credit just waiting to be used.

    TrueAssassin86x said:

    September 18th, 2:59 pm

    I spent 120$ over the last two sales PlayStation had co-op sale and the 1 indie sales / Plus sale two weeks ago. There are enough sales.

    Imaginashunz said:

    September 18th, 3:30 pm

    They just had a co-op sale what do you mean you need more?

    Kevvik said:

    September 18th, 4:57 pm

    Frankly, some games were not badly priced but those were ones I already had. Otherwise, I felt the prices for the coop sale were not very impressive.

POEman553 said:

September 18th, 2:28 pm

I know this isn’t really too many people’s type of game (not really mine), but Criminal Girls 2 will be out on 9/20 for PS Vita.

    OrionRyan said:

    September 18th, 5:38 pm

    Actually, both Criminal Girls 2 and Valkyrie Drive have been delayed to October 11th due to technical and manufacturing issues.

Awsaim said:

September 18th, 2:29 pm

Why is Machinarium releasing a day later?

Rainwater said:

September 18th, 2:41 pm

Finally, there’s a version of Machinarium for every electronic device in the known galaxy.

viceforce said:

September 18th, 2:43 pm

Is it possible for those to get Machinarium for free for those they got it from plus. This was put on plus twice. Once for Vita and Once for PS3.

    cusman said:

    September 19th, 3:38 am

    If it was a cross-buy game it might be part of that already

TrueAssassin86x said:

September 18th, 3:04 pm

Dont forger September 22nd the price of plus goes up to 60$ a year. Stuck up now. I have 5 years worth of plus on this account.
Anyways virginia and zenith possibly for me.

Kishnabe said:

September 18th, 3:17 pm

Enjoyed the first Tokyo Twilight…hoping the expanded version improves some of the shortcoming of the first one.

Skylight Freerange…as a Canadian…am interested in checking it out.

Slain Back From Hell…Vita version out in Nov 1st….will wait. Nice to see some Steam Games come over to PSN.

Hoping Machinarium is free for Vita/PS3 owners of the game.

    MrBeens said:

    September 19th, 10:30 am

    Ummm, by ‘Check out Skylight Freerange’ I hope you mean look it up on YouTube. Looks like it would be bottom tier on Playstation 1. Seriously, don’t know how this stuff makes it through Sony Certification.

The Bunker has my name written all over it. I’m probably the only person who misses the Sega CD/32X days. Sewer Sharks, Night Trap, Tom Cat Alley ect. It was cheese to the fullest, but I loved every minute of it..!

    fecks said:

    September 19th, 3:50 am

    no man, i still play my sega cd today with all the great fmv games. The best gaming years ever!

ZanFear said:

September 18th, 3:33 pm

CarnageAncora said:

September 18th, 3:39 pm

Definitely getting Slain: BfH, and possibly Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity.

KuKurakusuKuran said:

September 18th, 4:39 pm

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, Automatic buy Day One ofc ^^

Kevvik said:

September 18th, 4:55 pm

So this is just an expanded version of Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters? I enjoyed the original but not enough to pay full price for a couple more missions…

KILLZONE79 said:

September 18th, 8:52 pm

Of all the right times my Sony bravia 32 inch HDTV that I had for 6 years has finally died, I’m gonna miss out on rise of iron this week, as I’m currently broke til payday

    ZanFear said:

    September 18th, 9:55 pm

zoomkw said:

VR is 3 weeks away when do we get to preorder things like battlezone, robinson the journey, dead secret and RIGS, EVE Valkyrie and Gunjack on PSN?

Welmosca said:

September 19th, 12:50 pm

Rise of Iron hype!!

MauCamper said:

September 19th, 5:32 pm

Does anyone know when Gangbeasts will be released?

nikki_boagreis said:

September 19th, 6:14 pm

I thought Destiny was an expansion, one huge expansion. All we need is micro transaction dlc & character skins like DCUO & Defiance, then everyone can purchase character skins & look the same. Defiance & DCUO became F2p so i’ll wait until Destiny is as well. Besides i already did everything the 1st week of release, a million times.

I have problems with dynamic themes, they always freeze my PS4 or won’t even download. Last week everyone who purchased FFXV digital got a refund from Sony & now the FFXV theme is gone. Figured i’d get to keep it but under notifications it says cannot install. Not just the FFXV theme but the theme i already have set on the XMB as well.

September 20th, 9:34 am

Don’t know if anyone would be able to give me some advice but- I’m a little ****ed off that I’m not able to play the Rise of Iron DLC. I’m level 40 titan but my gear isn’t good enough? Already completed all prior dlc. What’s the best or quickest way to get better gear so that I may be able to continue? Thanks for any help!!

DragonessHera said:

September 20th, 9:47 am

I find it funny that Sony isn’t advertising Skylight Freerange 2. No screenshots, no trailer, nothing but a title. Why is that, Sony? Anyone curious about that game, do a quick search on Google to find the developers website and take a look.
