  • I’m so glad that I signed up for PlayStation Plus it REALLY pays off. So much free content that I fear that in a bit I will have to buy an even bigger hard drive haha. I have a 320 GB right now and I’m down to my last 99 Gigs of free space.

  • Why do I get an error when trying to download Sam & Max? (80023102).

  • Won’t let me confirm purchase

  • an early update i love it keep it coming SONY

  • @95

    Ok so freezing every half hour to an hour isnt that bad right?

    Having the sound cut out which will then cause the game to freeze isnt that bad right?

    Flying super speed through the city and the graphics not being able to load fast enough, and then at times it causes the game to freeze, isnt that bad right?

    Activating a power move (Whrilewind Attack) and being stuck going around in a circle non stop and you cant do nothing while you are being attacked to death, isnt that bad right?

    i could go on but your right, nothing is bad about the beta and me warning ppl to be prepared was foolish of me.

    BTW: ive sent a few ingame bug reports for your info.

  • Awesome!

    Just finish with a PS Move demo for some friends….checked the ps store and bam…. more goodies.

  • Crappy update for PSP owners, AGAIN!

    Sony, you guys are making it so hard for me to consider purchasing a PSP2 (or sticking with Sony, for that matter). If you’re not gonna support the current PSP and give the owners what they want (PSOne Classics [REAL classics!!!], digital versions of current and new PSP games released on a regular basis), then why would one think that things will be different with a new handheld?

    Oh! And it’s getting close to a year now since Vagrant Story has been released on Europe’s PSN with no U.S. release in sight (and you guys STILL won’t explain what’s the damn holdup!).

    Nice job, guys. Merry effin’ Christmas!!!

  • Sam & Max for me too

  • Another person with the Sam & Max error code here…was really looking forward to picking this up.

  • Sony, let people know the DC Universe Online Beta is actually 15gb. Not the misleading 100 something mb that appears. Some people have bandwidth limits, unfortunately.

  • so, no demos this week. that sucks!
    oh well, at least you guys throwed a bone for the ppl that are subscribed to playstation plus!

  • I’ve had a virtually error-free DCUO experience as well. Only thing was the gotham sewer entrance floating 10+ ft in the air. Flawless otherwise. Anyone who complains about free unlimited gameplay is obviously never going to be satisfied.

  • no demos for a second straight week what the come on Sony I have’t checked the pricing on any of the items yet just reading this online but their better be a free holiday gift for all psn members Grace u need to do a better job stop disappointing everyone

  • Hooray for Pocket Fighter PSN avatars! I’ve been wanting something like this. How about the Puzzle Fighter ones?

  • great nice update

  • @ 104

    You may have a hardware issue. Or and internet issue.

  • The REAL Answer why KH BBS is not on PSN

    The answer is to be found not with the offices of Square Enix, but with their partner in the franchise, Disney. It would be an understatement to suggest that the American company is a bit paranoid when it comes to protecting its intellectual property. Recent legislation to extend the copyright term in the united States bears the nickname “Mickey Mouse Copyright Extension Act” precisely because of lobbying by the corporation to change the law in its favor. Disney simply doesn’t want to see any bootleg versions of its licensed characters running around in back alley shops.

    With piracy a major issue on the PSP from day one, Disney and Square Enix decided to implement failsafe code to keep their precious game from running off of a memory stick, the preferred method of PSP pirates. The code worked exceptionally well — it took months for pirates to finally crack Birth By Sleep. But an

  • unpleasant circumstance is that the game cannot be played from ANY memory stick, no matter whether it was purchased legitimately or not. It might be possible for the game to run from the special internal memory of the PSP Go, but so far Square Enix has not explored that possibility. Since the PSN platform is open to users of the older PSP models, It would be quite complicated to release the game digitally for the PSP Go only, and exclude everybody else. Hence, the title has remained chained to the physical UMD format.

    Is it possible that we will see a digital download version in the future? Yes, after Disney and Squenix sell enough copies of the original game to offset the risk of piracy.

  • Any word on Sam and Max fix?

  • Oh my….11GB for DCUO?
    That really scared me but i found room!
    I hope it’s worth all that stuff I deleted……

  • Sam & Max error code too…

  • @114

    new ps3 (july) and fios internet with ps3 hooked directly to it. maybe somethign wrong with the files that were downloaded but the game checks the files when it first starts

  • megamixer is such a troll, but I love reading his comments. He has gotten much better at annoying PS fans. look at all of his comments for the PS update. He always starts with that legacy BS, and then complains about what isn’t in the update. He used to constantly moan about the times the PS store would update! On topic: I am looking forward to X-MEN Arcade!

  • No new demos???

  • I too got the error code. I just decided to try it later while DC Universe Takes the record for longest install ever from the MAG beta.

    Also, I can’t really complain about Field Runners coming again, since Sam and Max is the equivalent of 3-5 months of free game downloads.

    Gonna have to hit up some Billy Joel for Rock Band 3. Good selection of his songs, and not just some 3 song pack of his most famous ones, or songs that are not fun to play at all.

  • So a PS1 import for PSP owners and….nothing. Pretty close to, if not the worst update I’ve seen for the PSN.

  • I thought a Mass Effect 2 demo was out this week.
    Yes! ACB DLC OMG 4 FREE OMG 4 PS3!
    I rented [PROTOTYPE] for a few nights, and aside from the absolutely BO-RING storyline, the free-roam was fun. I think I’ll download it.

  • Sam & Max Error for me as well :( (80023102).

  • Subaru Legacy: 2011 :P

    Sam & Max error here too.

  • i cant download sam and max or the dc online beta i get an error code. please fix

  • Hey, not everyone was a member of ps+ when fieldrunners was free (I wasn’t). So I’m glad I’m getting a chance at it. Also, what’s the big deal with cross game chat? I have had lousy experiences with voice chat in games and do not see any need for it.

  • Now to get excited about an old arcade game and a pinball game. It really is the end of the world?

  • @digitalman

    Mass Effect 2 demo is out next week, not this week.

  • Wow i found out there making a psp 2 well thats awesome but why did they take away the UMDs im not going to download a game for 50 bucks!


  • A few things…

    – I’m getting the Sam & Max error code.

    – I’m disappointed early PS+ subscribers basically aren’t getting a mini this month. At the very least, you should email everyone who downloaded it through PS+ and still has an active subscription a voucher for a free dynamic theme or something.

    – Can I quit the DC Universe download with the download in progress and resume from that point later on when I start it back up?

    – Why couldn’t you offer the U2 Drake’s Fortune map only pack for $2 (half off the original $4)?

  • Sam & Max error 80023102 here…. what the hell?

    Don’t get me wrong… I love the early update but lets make sure things work properly, shall we?

  • Horrible PSP update, guys.

  • Yea.. The Sam and max stuff is coming up with an error. Also, how big is the dc beta. When you boot it up it begins a 2 hour download…

  • if we buy a year subscription to ps+ twice would we get 6 months free??

  • What happened to the PSP section of the Store?

    I was hoping for something more, maybe a few old games and a demo or two, but we got nothing!

    I hope next week is different…

  • amazing update, especially for PS+ members, thank you so much guys, really stepping it up :).

  • …… The predicable sound of silence from SCEA regarding the Sam & Max publish bug.

  • Why on earth is PSN pushing these old downloadable games from a couple of years ago. Prototype for $30? You can buy a used copy from for $13… then sell it to the next person once you realize how terrible it is.

  • @ 5. I totally agree with you! WORST PSP UPADTE EVER!!! And its almost christmas! If you guys dont put a decent and amazing PSP upadte, with mucho games and mucho addons for this cristmas, me no be happy!!!!!

  • @Grace: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR the DCUO BETA!!! I finally feel as if my PS Plus subscription is worth it.

    Note: I’ve been playing this beta on my PC for the past 2 weeks & I’m really very happy that now I’ll be able to play it on my PS3 (my preferred platform).

  • Booya! Totally downloading CTR and the DCUO beta :) didn’t even have time to look at the rest of the stuff yet, too hyped up about testing out DCUO :) Excellent update. 1:11 remaining to download after an hour, not too bad! I’m expecting it to take a bit longer than that though. We’ll see… see y’all in the beta!

  • please change the blog background. I like Drake Fortune & Uncharted as much as the next videogamer but Imma gonna to be burned out on Uncharted wellllll before the November release date next year if this stays like this much longer!! >_<

  • @mancub194 that’s great I wish we can get KH:BBS and other games on the PSN!

    BTW, do you have any sources?

Please enter your date of birth.
