  • YDKJ pack 4 for me.

    Tempted by the Modnation moon kit and yet… 100kb? I kind of object to paying for stuff that’s obviously there on the disc already.

  • aww man…was hoping those KZ3 map packs would be free if you’re a PSN+ subscriber(but understand as everyone and their grandmother now have PSN+ lol)

    still waiting on Parasite Eve II, why did EU get it before us?

  • What is going on with Beyond good & evil??

  • I Need more Dissidia Duodecim DLC, where is Terra and Bartz ????? I want to buy them!!!!!!

    OBS: Release Chrono Cross Too!!!!!

  • What about some more themes and avatars rather than the mediocre ones being offered?

  • @46: Says the guy complaining about complaining lol

    Admit it, this update is weak. Sony had a great opportunity to get more people to subscribe to Plus, but they wasted it by publishing junk. It’s obvious their mentality is to publish unwanted stuff until all the freebie Plus members are gone. Free Plus was a complete sham.

  • Was hoping for new DiRT 3 DLC. Oh well no big deal.


  • Grace,

    Thanks for the update I know how hard you guys/gals work on giving us content on a weekly basis. I have a request that I hope I can get an answer on. I like how we have dynamic themes for our favorite teams (college football, soccer etc.) I wanted to know can we get dynamic themes to represent the countries that many of us that own PS3’s are from?
    I am personally from the Virgin Islands but living in Atlanta, Ga. and I would honestly like a dynamic theme to represent where I’m from. Is there any possibility on this idea being put into action?

  • Skarlet and Killzone 3 Map pack

    wish I had the money

    PS+ discount? maybe? I have a year of this

  • nothing exciting :\

  • Where’s the Duodecim DLC?

    We haven’t seen an update since you guys came back online!

  • lostinplainsight

    wow this update is kinda lite

  • ALIEN ZOMBIE MEGADEATH !!! Buying this as soon as I get home ! SWEEET !!!

  • well with updates like this, there’s a reason why i will never pay for +Plus. poor update. no PSone titles, no wide veriety of new content.

  • another terrible update. seriously is it too much to ask for some psp games? whats the hold up on some classic (and recent) psp games? i wouldnt be so irate if the people who post these blogs can answer some questions:
    When is Crisis Core, or other psp games coming out? you guys seriously think people are going to buy/enjoy the Vita when you cant even release psp games. it just proves to me that you guys never took the system seriously and it doesnt look like you guys would take the Vita seriously as well.

    If you guys dont know the answer you should at least tell us. something like ” we are sorry, we have no information”, or “we will try to contact said company” i mean this is getting pathetic on your part. you guys never take any of this seriously, so what makes us think you’ll change when the vita comes out?

  • @ comment #8

    True,this guys are a bunch of complainers

  • Where’s the Duke Nukem Forever demo?! I thought it would be available by now! I know that there is one because people got it through the Early Access club or whatever it’s called.

    I wanna see better content as well. I don’t even get excited for store updates any more.

  • This update is weak. I guess I will have to save my money for next week.

  • Yay! I can keep my money this week!
    Sarcasm aside, I am disappointed that we still haven’t got FF5 and 6 and Beyond Good and Evil.
    Thankfully there is plenty to download and play from the past few weeks! :D

  • Hey, what’s the deal with the pricing of the Rockstar Pass for LA Noire?!?!

    It was still supposed to be 9.99 today! Now the price is $12 and it’s not even a deal anymore to get the pass.

    Now I’ll pass, and I’m a sad panda

  • WOW, not a very good update. This week is full of nothing.

    Ugh…. Its so empty in here!!!

  • Whatever happened to PSOne Classics?

  • as many predicted, when “everyone” is a plus member the updates will be lacking. I’m happy with MK update =)

  • When is there going to be new ps home updates/stuff?

  • yeeeeees finaly Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ressurection now i can sleep finally

  • Nice update. Thanks.

  • PristineSneakers

    I cannot believe that Beyond Good & Evil still isn’t here. I’m just speechless.

  • Thanks for the MK, and L.A. Noire. Other then that nothing else. 5 bucks for a character is way to much, xbox has a MK season pass so what about us?

    Duke is great, I love pee and fart jokes. Just finished driving the monster truck. I would get it, all the reviews seem to be based off the first couple levels.

  • Happy Summer Solstice to everyone. Nice update. Thanx for the free + stuff/discounts.

    @ #5

    You will never see the E3 demos here. That’s for show-goers. I wish they would but that’s not up to Sony. It’s up to the studio. You’ll have to get your fanny to E3 if you want to play the newest builds of the newest games. Peace.

  • no Back to the Future Episode 5? can’t wait to see how the story ends (or begins?)!

  • 74# HA we in europa have been playing it for a while now ;). Atleast you guys can get to no now how it feels to get things later.

  • @ 74

    Don’t be speechless. Go to the EU store and buy it if it’s that important to you. Be a go-getter.

  • As far as the Plus, they do that every 2 weeks and for this free month, nothing but discounts. The last good thing we got was MK demo early. Once the free month is over it will get better. That is just business at it’s worse. Here is your free…..gentle roll the blanket over your eyes

  • @Frulond
    You’ll be waiting for a while then. The free month of PS+ won’t end until August 3rd because you know there are people holding out on activating their free month until July 3rd. :p

  • What happened to the Modnation Water Parts Pack??? It was mentioned in Modnation Monday….

    Just thought i would ask…

    P.S. Keep the Jack Pack’s coming!!! LOVE EM!

  • At least we have a beta coming, because these updates are nothing special.

  • I am going to have to agree with the majority in that this was a pretty uneventful store update. Especially with the last two now really being subpar at best. Not sure on whom runs the show here, but they need to start taking Sony’s advice in the words of, Marcus.

    — “Step your game up!” —

    Because, these lacking updates are just for the birds honestly. I expect more on average because, you are “Sony”, and to me that still means something. Not saying every week has to be fireworks, but c’mon! You can do, better then this for sure every week. The PlayStation3 is not in it’s infantile stages anymore. PlayStation Network is not something new or just getting it’s bearings. The lack of “awsomesauce” here is unexcusable really.

  • how about a playstation network update next tuesday??…… u know psn cross game voice chat….

  • Still no Parasite Eve 2 and it’s 3 months overdue. You make me sick.

  • I dont get this its been almost a month now since the store has veen back yet the backlog of games that were supose to be released during the downtime have yet to be released let see we have beyond gne gattling gears ect. And the lack of any response has me wondering if these games have been lost to us have they decided not to support sony anymore…

  • @photomac #53
    I just got Beyond Good & Evil!
    On my Xbox. I can’t believe I waited this long for nothing.

  • lol this feels like an update from 2007

    “hey here’s some game videos”

  • Mortal Kombat also has FREE skins for Cyrax and Sector.

  • >Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 – Sale (PS3) (now $9.99, original price $14.99)
    That sale price isn’t nearly low enough given the fact that the game can’t be played when PSN is dead.

    >Bionic Commando: Rearmed – Sale (PS3) (now $4.99, original price $9.99)
    This is not listed in the special offers page.

    >Sonic’s 20th Birthday Bundle Sale ($19.99)
    This is not listed anywhere on the store that I can find.

    Angry Birds is still missing from the store. I guess it will pop back up in 4~5 months like the Disney PSOne Classics & Peace Walker did when they pulled their unexplained vanishing acts?

  • I wanted to see if I was going to keep Playstation+ after the free 30 days, but I guess I won’t. I don’t see anything worth keeping it for.

  • Lame update. Where is BG&E and PE2?! Wasn’t Chrono Trigger PS1 Classic supposed to be out at the end of May?

  • @ #10 BigMatt8484

    I f***ing hate people like you, you know?

    I bet you all a billion, billion bucks that Xbox people made the exact same complaints when Xbox Live first launched, ya know? And look how that’s turned out for M$.

    That’s what you get when you are an early adopter for a service which was (at least for the first six months) a full-fledged beta.

    I’m not happy about PS+ during my time as a member, either. But at least I realize that the service hasn’t even hit it’s two-year anniversary. Did you ever even think about that maybe XBL had some bumps in the road in its first year and a half to two years of service? And again, look how that’s turn out for M$.


  • ehhh
    its ok
    not much stuff for a update
    sounds boring…..

  • Terrible Update …. you never got up to date in the weeks we missed and we still get small content updates :( more games Sony more games :D

  • Weak week. Sigh.
