  • x men!!! good update!!

    • We realize some PlayStation Plus users are getting error 80023102 when downloading “Sam & Max” the Devil’s Playhouse (Episodes 1-5). We apologize and plan to provide a solution to those affected ASAP!



  • Meh. DCU Beta here I come but otherwise meh update.

    Just 1 price drop¡??

  • No demos?

    What a crap update.

  • I guess it’s good I missed out on the $20 sale for Sam & Max awhile ago, now I get it free with Plus. First month the PSN game is something I didn’t already have!

  • Sweet! New DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood!

  • Sweet been playing DCU, The update is huge though U_U

  • PS3 Legacy: 1
    PSP Legacy: 0
    PS1 Legacy: 0
    PCE Legacy: 0
    NEO Legacy: 0

    One is better than none. Awful pricing though. $30? Prototype is over two years old. Sheesh.

    Three new games, all demo-less which is becoming a recurring theme as of late. Nothing new for PSP. Some DLC and that’s really about it. I like how the “holiday collection” lineup has nothing to do with christmas and has zero discounts. Erm, wait. No I don’t. Small update despite adding a bunch of new games. 1 out of 5 stars.

  • i get the error 80023102 when i try to download sam & max
    whats going on?

  • Just to let you know, Endor trophies are NOT available on PSN network.

  • X-MEN, LBP2 Beta and DJ HERO 2 DLC!!!! SCORE! 5/5


  • Wow, you really weren’t kidding about re-getting Fieldrunners for PS+. Fail
    Seriously, Prototype? $30? I can get it for less than $20 brand new at any store.

  • Honestly blog mods, can we please finally ban this troll megamixer.

    No one wants to listen to him spamming his garbage every week.

  • Well there goes DCUO for the ps+ ppl. LOL i hope they ready to spend hours downloading with the problems so many ppl had from those of us that got invites cuz of the pre-order.

    Only thing for me this week is Marvel Pinball and X-men.

    Just a warning to those bout to jump into DCUO. There are a lot of issues, bugs, glitches, and so on with the ps3 version so be prepared to be resetting your ps3 a lot.

  • whats with plus getting Fieldrunners again?

  • X-men. Badassery there. Definantly will have to pick it up.
    If im corect, this is the game where Magneto says “XMEN, WELCOME TO DIE!”. That line there is worthy of this games purchase.

  • What sony? nothing for the psp
    you really screwed us over for pspgo users
    i hate ur dam updates
    ima stick to 6.31ofw until really good games for pspgo come out

    and very bad pricing on old games as well
    geesh sony………. Dissapointed

  • Enough with the Mega Man Legends avatars….release the games, they’re much more fun.

  • DC Universe BETA….HELL YEAH!! I really wanted to get a chance to play this for (FREE) before deciding if it was worth the monthly fee.


  • The Home item is not available. It’s been over two months that this item was promised to Plus members, Europe got the item on time. Why can’t we?

  • dc online 15gb ftw:3

  • Pretty weak update. skipped a week for PS1 games, and we get a single Import…


    Europe got Front Mission 3 this summer, they got Vagrant Story LAST DECEMBER, and we got nothing, zilch, nada.

  • Error 80023102 on Sam & Max here too

  • I get an error when I try to download sam & max(code 80023102), is it just my problem?

  • Dear Grace Chen & Co.,

    Please fight to give us titles like Parasite Eve on psn! JPN PSN has had both releases, we’d like them too!

    Thank you

  • SAM & MAX and DCU BETA here I come ……

  • great update for PS+ members :) can’t wait to get to downloading it

  • Getting the error 80023102 when I try to download sam & max
    here too. NEEDS a fix.

  • Grace you never seem to answer these, but I’ll try anyway :)

    Will you be offering the PS3 version of DCOU as a download only option? Can we just upgrade from the beta install?

    Any information would be appreciated!


  • Is the Uncharted 2 DLC supposed to be on sale also? I cant tell if it is, because I dont know what the original prices were. I never put any time into the UC2 multiplayer and figured I might jump in

  • do we get to keep our character in dc universe beta or do we have to start over

  • 1. LOL PSP Go, what a massive load of failure.
    2. Sony, just give megamixer some love already, he desperately needs some.
    3. Not terribly interested in the free Plus items but of course I’ll take them.
    4. I’ll more then likely pick up X-Men.
    5. Not a great update, wasn’t expecting anything else anyway.

  • for those who are downloading the DCUO beta be aware. the initial down load is what they have listed. after that down load you will have to download the rest of it, which is 15GB of space.. so if interested makes sure you have enough space for it and a ton of time to set aside for it download(probably should just let it download over night while you are asleep)

  • Kingdom Hearts/God of War avatars kthxbye

  • amazing update VERY glad i got PS+ day one but i keep getting an error for sam and max (80023102).. im sure it would be fixed soon but just letting you know incase you dont know yet

    keep up the awesome work sony

    and thank you

  • So no psp update? you would think with all the past psp games you could be releasing you guys would at least release something, but i guess its ok since X-men comes out and ill be playing that.

    Hopefully next week i can get the best pre-xmas present and you guys release Crisis Core for Psn. I bought a psp-go last year with my assumption that you guys would be releasing this great game soon, but now a year later and nothing. Hopefully this year will be different.

  • Loving the stores snowy new background btw. It’s pleasing to the eyes unlike that Uncharted 3 one that had been up.

    Implying listening equates to reading? And what are YOUR thoughts about this weeks PS Store update? That’s what this blog post is for. Yet you spoke nothing of it. Who’s the real troll?

    What are you talking about? Problems? Where? The betas gotten nothing but 5 star ratings from everyone who’s downloaded it! :P

    Yes they are, glad I still own them on disc! SCEA blocked the PSP ports of those games from releasing in the west so they owe us doubly to at least get the PSOne versions out!

  • DCU Online Beta!? That’s awewsome. Downloading it right now.

  • I tried to download Sam & Max and I got an error code, 80023102.. I quit the store and came back, and the same issue. I went to the normal Games section to go find it and it said that I could download episodes 1 and 5 for free, probably because I activated whatever Plus does, but 2-4 were not available to download.

    Sorry, I know you don’t want to hear problems as soon as it happens, but I know you’ll fix it. Thanks for the great update! So much stuff!

  • I am also getting 80023102 error code

  • Sam and Max giving me the same as 26 and 38.

  • What happended to the hustle kings avatar bundle being free to ps plus subscribers this week, its nowheres to be seen

  • Wow

    So we get Raziel and Kain as DLC for a TR game

    But we can’t get a new Raziel and Kain related game?

    With PSOne games getting remakes and PS2 games being HD’d

    I’d figure at least a Soul Reaver remake would happen or related ]:

  • I’m with 42 and 43, I can’t get Sam and Max either. And my brother went up to see if you could download it on his account (Yes, there are two PS+ members in one house) and he couldn’t do it either.

    I’ll try again later tonight or tomorrow.

  • Will our beta characters, names, etc carry over to the full retail for DCUO or is this a one off right now? I don’t want to get involved with picking a real name and designing my character for real only for the full game to tell me my name is already chosen, etc.

  • woooo crash ctr free, dcuniverser beta =D

  • Sam & Max Error code here too

Please enter your date of birth.
