  • hope to see kingdom hearts or crisis core next week cause know for sure that they would sell alot on the pspgo trust me sony it would make up for all the worthless updates that you have been posting

  • Sam and Max is fried.

    @ All

    I got in the DCUO beta last week and its awesome, but it’s a 15GB download. It took 5 hrs to download and install at a 2 mega byte, not bit, per second download speed. Have fun if your connection is sub par. May want to do this overnight.

  • megamixer get the F off this site.

    This blog is for Playstation gamers, not pathetic trolls like you.

  • Fieldrunners again? What the hell? We were promised two new minis every month with PS+. We got Fieldrunners already.

    If you’re going to start repeating games, I’m going to seriously reconsider renewing.

  • Hell yeah XMEN!! and the DC beta? sweet!

  • cortiz neither of those will ever be on PSN.

  • Still no Xenogears or Chrono Cross I see?



  • @22 Spydudefx
    I know for PS+ they promised Burn Zombie Burn Hat but…Im surey ou could live without a PSHome Hat :)

    As for the update for me Im taking Ac Brotherhrood add (Oh techniclaly the “1st” add we got was the Copernicus Conspiracy add :), PoP Warrior Within and the DC Beta. Never heard of it but it’s free so can’t complain :)

  • @megamixer

    LOL you going by ratings? ppl are rating it a 5 just cuz they can download. com’on man be serious.

    I been playing the beta for almost a week now i think. Im telling you theres a lot of issues in the game, but that is what a beta is for.

    FYI PPL: when you start the game you will have to download a big file. As the files are downloading a green bar will slowly start to fill over top the white bar. You will also see a yellow flashing line on the end of the green bar. If that yellow line stops flashing, the update has stalled and you need to reset the ps3 and the downloading will pick up where it left off.

    If you dont pay attention to the download every now and then you will wonder why its taking hours and hours to download.

  • @AddisonW
    How is he a troll? What he wrote is exactly the truth

    No actual PS1 games (except a very bad Import game)
    a PS3 game that’s almost 3 years old, at 30$.

    All in all, this update is pretty weak in content. Which is surprising since we’re so close to christmas. And there’s only 2 weeks left before the last update of the year and that they won’t reupdate until after the 2nd week of January if it’s anything like last year.

    As a note, last year’s final update for Europe was Vagrant Story, we got the AWESOME (not) Wing Commander 4 for PS1…. 1 year later, we still didn’t get Vagrant Story, yet Europe got Front Mission 3… so yeah, some people have the right to be annoyed by the lack of communication from the SCEA team on these blogs. Just look at the european blog, at least THEY ANSWER THE COMMENTS!

  • Awesome update! DCUOL, Prototype, and I might try Prince of Persia. Two suggestions, though: Scott Pilgrim avatars would be awesome and where’s Birth by Sleep for PSP Go owners? What gives?

    +Proud PlayStation Plus Member+

  • So the Burn Zombie Burn hat we waited is something that has been sold in Home for a year? I thought this was an exclusive item for Plus/Home??


    NO the characters will NOT carry over. That is not how a beta works.

  • No demos again? What a bunch of junk this update is. Sigh, why even check on Tuesdays?

    Load of crap. PSN sucks!

  • WHAT!?!?! DC Online is OVER 9,000Mb!? I’m patching right now, it’s 122mb and download was like same amount?!?!? My PS3 HDD cannot handle that much GB right now!

    My Sam & Max is downloading fine no error, so I don’t know what’s up with that.

  • Great update guys thanks!!! 8)

  • I dont understand why people think Megamixer is “trolling”

    Had he just complain (without giving reasons) or just yelled out absurd language i could understand calling him a troll

    But what he is doing is expressing his opinion. You may think this is the “Greatest Update Ever”, but you need to realize that other people have different opinions.

    On the Psp-side this is a bad update as nothing new was added despite the TON of games that are on the psp that are only available on UMD only. its not fair for Go users (like myself) to always be waiting every tuesday. only to get shafted with no new games.

    Heck im still waiting On Crisis Core to be release on the psn. I dont understand the hold up on it as it was a greatest hits game (which means it earned a lot of money) So Sony/Square Enix should know its going to sell a lot, but they are choosing to ignore us for some reason.

  • I, too get an error code when trying to download Sam & Max.

  • Sam and Max Error……… please fix.

  • @mixedkidbx

    Ive played quite a few “Beta” games that allowed you to save characters for when the game gets officially released.

    So there are some beta’s that do that, just not this one i guess.

  • @cortiz2092000
    Kingdom Hearts won’t happen because Disney is lame. Crisis Core has a slim chance. We’ll see when its re-release in Japan.

    :p = sarcasm! I was just pointing out how broken the ratings system is…

  • @anti-sock

    i know they wont ever be released

  • I want my Sam & Max but (80023102) is not allowing me to download it.. sad… :(

  • @iTofuMan

    Sorry but i have never been in any beta that has let you keep your beta charas.

    Ive been in some betas where they thought about doing it but at the last minute decided not to.

  • Awesome update! Playstation plus is a steal for anyone at this point (although it already has been for a long time for me) Keep bringing the awesome update.

    1 Question: Are we going to get all of the fallout 3 dlc like europe did ? Cuz if we do that would totally make my day, no my month, no MY LIFE!!

  • too bad the beta is about 17gig after all the update data is installed…

  • @ cortiz2092000

    Square Enix said “Hell NO!” on a digital release of Kingdom Hearts, so quit complaining on the Sony sight. The decision to release a digital copy for retail on the PSN is the publishers decision.

  • sweet

  • @megamixer

    i must be blind cuz didnt see :p

    but yeah the beta got a lot of issues. some of the ppl ive talked to have said the ps3 DCUO beta has way more issues than the PC DCUO beta

  • @Rene_Lad we can all live without many things, so what’s your point exactly? lol

  • Whats with the sam and max error code can we get a fix plz or something else nice and shiny!!!

  • sony isnt the problem SGT.
    disney is the reason KH will never be on PSN.
    also it is site not sight
    and he was hardly complaining.

  • Just wanted to say I’m really disappointed in the price for Prototype. I know it’s Activision’s price and not your fault, but you had a good thing going with quality games at a good price. Tomb Raider Underworld for $15 was an EXCELLENT buy.

    Well I was planning on buying Prototype today but after seeing the ridiculous price for a 2 year old game that doesn’t come with a disc, case, or manual I’m going to have to pass. There are probably a lot more people out there like me. Activision probably would have made more money off of this had they priced it $10-$15 cheaper.

  • Sam and Max not working. Error…. frustrated with another botched store update.

  • @mixedkidbx… bugs, glitches, crashes? Geez, you might think it was a beta or something….oh,wait.


    PS+ for the 3rd time now has offered Fieldrunners.

  • @ TofuMan

    You got had on the PSP Go , brother. I’d be livid if I’d bought that and then can’t play great games like Birth by Sleep. SCEA should have had a digitalrights agreement for PSN before release. I bought one (PSP go)used and my hands cramped from the small size. I returned it in favor of the 3000, Praise the Lord. Sorry:(

  • Sam and Max is downloading just fine for me.

  • PLUS+ Subscribers already got the “Fieldrunners” Mini about a month or two ago! Please put up a NEW game for download. Does no one check what’s already released? This is a little ridiculous… :/

  • @charliesdad

    im just letting ppl know what they can expect, and this beta has way more issues than you would think phase 2 or 3 of the beta should have.

  • i keep getting an error code whenever i try to get sam and max. :E

  • can you tell me if megaman legends is coming to the ps store?

    I asked capcom and was told that “there has been no official

    announcement of a ps3 version”…

  • Can’t get X-Men to download, keep getting an error code. Won’t let go in and adds funds to my wallet manually either.

  • one week and we’ll get the best update ever…vietnam and masseffect2 demo @_@’ can’t wait.. one suggestion for next price drop: silent hill ps1 :P

  • 16
    stop spouting nonsense, they are a few issues but not as bad as you claim them to be. report you suposed horrid bugs to teh devs and move on.

  • What the freak is going on with the Sam and Max download error? It keeps on coming up

  • this is an amazing update, keep it up for a strong finish to this year!

  • inb4 a very sad christmas update.

  • i haven’t gotten any error from sam&max so i don;t know whats up with that either
