  • taznorris,

    you play super street fighter IV?

  • I for one say: The heck with cross game chat. You really need to talk to other people while you play? Talk about stupid unimportant crap? What the heck people! such a useless and stupid feature. Whenever I play black ops online half of the hassle is to mute out all the morons who are cussing and talking crap on their headphones and having stupid conversations with other people while their crappy music plays all raspy in the background.

    Am I the only one that feels like this?

  • magooser,

    You talk to your buddies when they at your house playing games right, so whats wrong with talking to friends while playing games online, like me friends that i grew up with that i moved away from..

  • @2 psone classic lol what hell you talk about read it wrong

  • but then again you probably hate voice chats online, as much as i hate people that text on their cellphone.

  • @ Magooser- I agree with you brother. I don’t understand the appeal and if people playing are gonna have a side conversation or play loud music they can mute and just listen in. I eat pretzels while I play so I keep my mic above my head and pop in when I need to (Chewing is loud and rude, constant f-bombs are more so)

    @ All–In the spirit of the earlier gentleman who gave away his code, I also have one. Just send me a message and I’ll give it to whoever requests it first. I don’t know why anyone needs a code since plus is free but oh well. It’s gonna be awesome sauce so everybody show up to the U3 beta please.

    Finally, is anyone else out there getting Ghost Warrior Tuesday? Online maybe? Gatling Gears and BG&E HD FTW!!!

  • BG and E HD about time i thought it might not arrive until BG and E 2 on ps3 was here.

  • Tetraminos? I there already was a Tetris mini? Seems a little redundant to me.

  • Okay you know what, that’s just completely unreadable anyway. Ugh, sorry.

  • Not a bad week at all, def gonna try out beyond good and evil demo, never played the game.

  • Beyond Good and Evil is cool, but still no Parasite Eve II or any PSOne classics for that matter :(

  • hoping SE decides to give us the rest of Dissidia duodecim DLC this week.

  • They said a few blogs ago that Medival was coming July 5th free for ps plus. So there’s your ps1 classic. Can’t wait for tuesday! UC 3 beta all day!

  • No PsOnes? Darn it.

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    No PS3 or PSOne classics. Freaking A.

    Need to put a section for PS2HD Classics on the store already.

  • When are we going to see some relevant new content on the PSP store?

  • Where’s Final Fantasy 6? Parasite Eve 2? Japan and Europe already have them… when will it be available for US?

  • @Taznorris

    I love Scott Pilgrim. It’d say it’s only real fault is that it doesn’t have online co-op.

    It’s even better if you like the Scott Pilgrim novels and/or movie.

  • Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, come to me baby!

  • Zoryu_of_Setsuna


    + Taznorris

    I’m really not sure, not that I have heard of. But I do have 1 dead pixel on my TV you can barely see it though. No other problems thus far.

    I have an Emerson 37″ LCD HD TV

  • Zoryu_of_Setsuna


    + perrandy

    You should look up videos on YouTube to see if you like it or not, that’s what I do if I don’t know if I should purchase a game or not to see if it fits to my liking.

  • Come on Sony, let’s see some more PSOne Classics. Legend of Dragoon? More Square-Enix titles? Suikoden II? Tales of Destiny? Breath of Fire? Lunar? Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater?
    Also, it would be AWESOME if we got cloud save support for PSOne so we could transfer between PS3 and PSP.

  • Lots of demos, nice.

  • is there a place (rumored or not) that shows a more advanced list (more then a day ahead) that shows the possible releases, cuz ive been waiting over 7 months for stuff to release on psn, and i dont even know if they abandoned the games or if theyll be on psn tomorrow, please and thanks

  • where the hell is Final Fantasy V and VI and Chrono Trigger?

  • SSF4 Arcade Edition?? didnt that came out like 2 weeks ago or so ?? cuz I already have it or is it the full game ?

  • ps2 I miss you=(

    if only they could mix them together I would be a very happy gamer ^_^

  • can not wait for the uncharted beta

  • looks good i,m still waiting for the second lot of dlc for dynasty warriors 7 though it seems to be taking ages to be arriving on the european psn store

  • How freaking cool…another Dynasty Warrior game….yes….Gundam 3….I don’t care if you button mashers haters don’t like it…I love my dynasty warrior collection. Thank you Playstation…this is awesome! I just wish there were merchandise for the series…seriously. I don’t want to pay a lot for the items since it’s overseas…ugh. But, anyway, Thanks.

  • @KoRnX18

    True. I wanted to see(and of course play) Parasite Eve 2 ASAP because I ain’t touching my 3rd Birthday before getting the Hypervelocity gun and the Gunblade for the lulz in PE2…

    BTW (I think this is not the proper place to ask but I’m doing it anyway)
    1: any word on Move support for any COD game? (MW1, MW2, BO…)
    2: If the DMC and MGS Series are getting remasterized and there will be trophies for the remasterized games, why not add the trophy support for DMC/MGS 4 too?

  • Still no sign of FF5, FF6, Chrono or PE2…damn it.

  • Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 is all I care about this week, looks to be the best one in the series yet, interested how the cell-shading looks


  • will star ocean and star ocean 2 hit as psone class game on the psn for download? And how man GB’s is infamous 2 will be, i love the game more after my friends got me hook on it.

  • UFC Trainer might pair well with The Fight for the mornings I exercise inside. That fitness pack for The Fight is a good workout in a short amount of time.

  • Eh– I’m just not feelin it. Can we fast-forward to November already? Maybe developers will be ready to a stellar launch so I can pick up my Vita already, get going with Uncharted 3 and have Twisted Metal at my finger-tips. Oh well, hey everyone, the PSN Network update may be dry but, if you’ve got PlayStation Plus, I can’t believe this wasn’t highlighted in Gold at the top of this that the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta will be up and going.

    Hey dude, are Naughty Dog doing what they did with the Uncharted 2 Multi-player beta making the Beta available at Midnight?

    Uncharted 3 is the highlight of this weeks update.

  • if the ps plus from the welcome back program expires but we have the Uncharted 3 beta, does that make us not have access to it anymore?

  • No PSP games? Way to make people exited for the upcoming PS Vita…

  • great line up but i don’t see any news of uncharted 3 or resistance 3 beta. hope there will be another article addressing this. sniper ghost warrior looks good but i hate playing with kids or any other idiot who thins it’s like call of duty. if only kids didn’t ruin gaming that would be so amazing, a hard working person including myself deserve to relax and game a little after work.

  • on U3 beta: To all playstation plus members (*which is basically everone on playstation network*) since plus is free

  • @ 96

    Did you read the article? No Uncharted 3 beta info? Hmmmmm…..Read it again. Did you play the R3 demo on Battle:LA blue ray disc?

  • I did not read anything positive or negitive about Infamous 2. Does that mean no news is good news. (it’s a good game) ? Some of the user generated mission are great some are not. if you can make a Great Mission you can create a whole game as I see it.. Can I get a litt;e feedback on this game. THX in advance.

  • Yet again no Psone classics. My question is WHY!!!! Also it would be nice to list the DLC for the games like mortal kombat and such. Unfortunatly another weak drop that should have been post-poned.

  • @82 I would love to have ff 1-6 released not just 4,5 and 6.

  • Okay, I’m confused. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Streets of Rage 2 are already on PSN. Streets of Rage 2 is even free for PS Plus members and I’ve been playing it. How is it debuting this week?

  • Or is it that they’re “debuting” for non-PS Plus members, even though everyone is one this month? lol

  • what about final fantasy anthology?

  • Mr. Rey, Is there any chance Assassin’s Creed 2 will go on sale again? i thought $9.99 was a permanent price drop last time.

  • thanks for update
