  • not too shabby!

  • sniper ghost warrior, finally they are releasing this, ive been waiting since vgreleases said it was released at february

  • This UFC training game looks interesting, might have to check that out and see if I can work up a sweat! hehe

  • No psone classics once again… =(

  • Doesnt seem to be very many good games or demos this week, the only thing i would be interested in is the u3 beta but other than that not very good.

  • PLEASE ANSWER THIS!!!…….can i use the code for the uncharted 3 beta that got with inFAMOUS 2 on june 28?

    • Information on how and when you can gain access to the Beta with your inFAMOUS 2 code will be published soon.

  • Does anyone else think that looks like Alyx Vance with green clothes/lipstick/eyes?

  • Any news on Daggerdale? I know it was delayed due to the…unfortunate event which shall not be named. But it looked fun and I haven’t heard anything re: a release date.

  • Please reply to this I’m sure I’m not the only person who is woundering this.
    Will Capcom be back on the blog to talk more about Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City?? I’m very excited for this game since I’ve been hooked on Resident Evil since Resident Evil 2 on the Nintendo 64. :)

  • It’s all good that there isn’t any PSone Classics this week…

    Can anyone say Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta??

  • Nothing for PSP? I for one am shocked.

  • So there’s nothing for the PSP? : (

  • Have you tried to persuade/Do you know if Square-Enix has plans to release ff13 avatars or avatars from the previous ff entries?

  • @mmaher
    “Can anyone say Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta??”
    What about it? I have zero interest in that series.

  • @megamixer

    That sucks man, have you tried Uncharted 2? It felt like I was playing an Indiana Jones movie… On steroids!
    And I like how the multiplayer is something new besides the old Call of Duty model. But to each his own!


  • Wow, nice drop, but where is Dungeons and Dragons Daggerdale? It has been out on the other console for over a month. Rey if you could let me know I would appreciate it. Nice work though on the drop.

  • How much is gears and bge hd

  • Any plans on getin some psp clasics on the psn b4 the vita comes out oh and when is monster hunter 3 coming stateside

  • BigPoppaB,

    Hey your no different, your complaining and crying about people that are complaining and crying.

  • @mmaher
    No I didn’t try the U2 demo. I think the demo of the first Uncharted was enough to tell me the series isn’t for me. Shooting things in videos has never clicked with me as being fun. Not with Space Invaders way back when and not with Uncharted and the hundreds of other shooters pumped out each week. Guess I prefer my virtual violence a little more up close and personal (DMC, Darksiders, Bayonetta, etc.).

    Oh the usual…

    PS3 Legacy: 0
    PSP Legacy: 0
    PS1 Legacy: 0

    …well maybe I could do something new. How about I rage over the fact that Sony put Infamous 2 on PSN but not their other games? Motorstorm: Apocalypse would’ve been nice to have on my hdd at all times! If only we could, hm, I don’t know… install disc-based games to our hdds so that we need only insert the discs from time to time to verify we still own the game. Something like that sure would be great. Sadly its probably beyond the power of the PS3 to enable such a feature. Oh well, its not like any other console can do that…

  • you can install super street fighter 4 on your hdd from disc, so it is possible.

  • Good update. I’ll be checking out Beyond Good & Evil, Gatling Gears, and Puzzle Dimension. I will not, however be complaining about the lack of PS1 games, since I have enough to play and I don’t need to take on anymore; or this cross-game chat idiocy, because I simply don’t see the logic in chatting with someone who is playing a different game.

  • It’s about time we got BG&E HD.

  • @7 yes you can

    The only thing I intend on getting is the U3 beta got infamous 2 with the code and because of free ps+I would have got it either way

  • whats nice about cross party chat for example is watching a movie with friends on netflix, or with my wife when i’m out of state using my friends 360, so it does have its advantages

  • Whooo! Beyond good and Evil finally.

  • I have psn plus and I bought infamous 2 so I have the code that was included in the game. I will give away the code on the blog.

  • First person to answer this question gets code.

  • Hey, Rey, do you know if Sony plans to make the psp classics available on the psn? (Such as Crisis Core and Kingdom Hearts???)

  • But i have ps plus too, so no point in code:) or i just pass it on to someone that wants it

  • @abruptedwotas I will send you the code. Send me a friend request to Morris1129

  • Just read your last post never mind. I wanted to give it to someone who needed one.

  • I will just post code on tuesday and the first person to redeem it gets it.

  • @AbruptedWotas

    Awww, you beat me to it!

  • i’m just trying to help out who really wants it:)

  • give it too taznorris!!!

  • taznorris woulda of been the rightful winner

  • @Hooligantuan
