PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

31 5

If this week’s reading list looks a bit longer than usual, it is – this overstuffed edition contains links from the long Thanksgiving weekend.

As we’ve brought up earlier this week, the Video Game Awards are coming up pretty soon, and with PlayStation nominees and cool reveals in store, we’re once again going to hold an LA viewing party near the live broadcast of the show. Look for more details this week, but Californians: mark your calendars for next Saturday!

  • any news in qriocity or firmware update?

  • and any news about downloadable neo-geo games for psp and ps3?

    • I’m tracking a Neo Geo Heroes Ultimate Shooting for PSP in the near future. Hope that’s what you’re looking for!

  • To who it may concern…

    I am a playstation plus member and I found a mini that I liked by trying the free ones provided. I liked it so much I wanted to buy it so it wouldnt disappear when/if I didnt renew my subscription. So I have been waiting and it finally went on sale. However when I go to buy it, playstation network says I already have downloaded that item and then it wont let me buy it. It makes me redownload the free one that was given via PS+ that will eventually expire. Any help on this issue would be appreciated. I just want to give you guys money.


    • When/if you allow your Plus subscripition to expire, you’ll be able to buy the game for good. Until then, keep your money!

    • I’ve been in talks with the team over this. They keep games private pre-release to avoid spoilers, but need to do a better job of whitelisting them after the fact. That team is aware of this fact (in large part because of comments like yours) and is re-evaluating its processes.

  • A couple David Jaffe posts in there nice to see. He is one of my favorite game developers and has taken the time to address me on twitter multiple times which I appreciate a lot.

  • Jeff, can you find out why ps plus users are being offered fieldrunners again?And is this going to be a continuing trend ?

    • Don’t expect this to be an ongoing trend. We hope you enjoy what is easily the biggest content update for Plus to date.

  • Lord knows Grace will never answer us on it, at least you answer a few questions .

  • When are we going to get a update on new features like voice messaging, party chat and to be able to change our PSN ID without losing anything ? Please make it happen!

  • I AM LOVING GT5! ! ! :P :P :P

  • Jeff:

    So what is the timetable for fixing this issue? I don’t think they’re aware of how many games (retail and PSN) as well as DLC are missing from “My Trophies”. The link below has a pretty detailed list of what’s missing:

  • Jeff:

    I posted a link to a post of what games and DLC are missing. It’s in your WP moderation queue. Please review/approve, thanks.

  • Go Jaffe! I love his commentary :D

    Cheered up my day :P

  • I already asked Sid this question, but maybe you know about it more?

    1. When can we expect Pac Man on PSP?
    2. When can we expect Angry Birds on PSP?
    3. Will we see these games before years end?

  • Thanks for the speedy reply . Much Appreciated.

    And I wholeheartedly agree that this month is massive in terms of Plus content.

  • *
    One million views by 12/12 means that Criterion will give out free cars to everyone

  • Where can i get does those nike playstation shoes?

  • Jeff, Will we see an demo for Mass Effect 2 for the last playstation store update for the year?

  • Thanks for neogeo heroes ultimate shooting, my psp go will love it ;-)
    Now, titles from neogeo catalogues to download, like with the Wii, that would be great!
    Or, some Last Blade or Garou Densetsu Real Bout Special from ps1 imports…
    Thanks for reading me…

  • What’s with all the 404 errors I’m getting for the blog when I try to view the page in Firefox?

  • Here’s another review for Deadnation:

    Awwesome game 10/10

  • When is the Pixel Junk Shooter 2 release date? I thought it was supposed to come out this year

  • I’m psyched for the Spike VGAs next week. I’m hoping for some mind-blowing reveals, and REALLY hoping Heavy Rain & God of War 3 (My Favorite Playstation Exclusives of 2010) get some of the recognition they deserve.

    However, at the same time, I was shocked to see Gran Turismo 5 totally absent from the ballots!

    Yeah, it didn’t come out when originally planned, but there was still some time there for people to play it and be able to make a judgment on it.

  • jeff please tell the dead nation team to give us multiple save files for the game. cause i shouldnt have to start every time i want to play with anyone seriously everytime i want to play online or offline with anyone i always have to start all over again. and also to see if we can at least get an option to have upgraded weapons carry over on the same mode u have beat it on. i think its tedious to always have to upgrade every freaking time. im sorry after awhile that gets boring. if they have make it as an option doesnt hurt for options.

  • I can’t wait to c the new R3 trailer!!!

  • Jeff, thanks for answering the Fieldrunners question, but is there really no way to get the Plus team to change the update? there are so many minis I’d love to get (like “Who’s that flying?”, “Monsters (probably) stole my princess”, “Zenonia”, “Sneezies”, etc’) that repetition at this point (when only 10-11 minis have been offered) is offending the pride and opinion of those of us who are enjoying ps+ a lot.

  • You should consider checking out our content over at PS3Vault. We’ve had a healthy dose of reviews lately.



  • when are we getting that blog overhaul

  • Re-confirmed: Jaffe is a badass. I’d expect no less from Grandaddy of War. I wasn’t actually sold on TM– Black was supposedly the best and I really didn’t enjoy it all that much– but… Ah, hell, consider me sold just based on the Awesomeness that is D. Jaffe. (Sadly, this is dependent on me actually finding a job in the horrible economy where every decent job and its half-decent brother-job require 3-15 years of experience while offering no opportunities to get that experience.)

  • Nothing about the news on the playstation phone? (Now official), see the link for more infos and a video:

  • As someone on the receiving end of the *SUCKY* version of Netflix (ie. the one NOT featured on this blog), I say this to the “geniuses” at Netflix:


    You guys suck!
