  • Any idea on the release date for Back to the Future Episode 5?

  • It’s time to (puts shades on) to play Uncharted 3 beta. (music-YEEEAAHHHH!)

  • the beta was up for about 30 min now, hehehe, Mine has been downloading awhile though it looks like its gonna be awhile longer, I might be able to play a game before heading off, can’t wait till tonight though, im gonna be playing almost all night!

  • UNCHARTED 3 Drake’s Deception Multiplayer Beta and MARVEL Pinball – Captain America :)

  • Wasn’t Dethspank just on sale? Why again?

    Welcome back sales have offered the worst.

  • For some reason US Plus decided not to honor the 20% discount they mentioned on the US Blog but EU did honor it. No one knows exactly why and they will probably just ignore comments asking about it lol

  • I got up at 9am this morning ready for U3 beta and now I can’t find it = (

    Not up on the EU site yet?

  • I can’t access my PS3 right now, what teams were added for the MLB avatars?

  • Good, good. Only lacking PSone classic =P

  • Double post but:
    Any word on a release date for Dungeon Defenders?

  • How do we go about getting a Journey Beta code from you?

  • Beyond Good And Evil HD
    “Special offer: get two avatars with purchase, now through June 11, 2011.”
    I’m sure you mean July 11th, right?

    YAY Uncharted 3 Beta!
    and more DiRT3 dlc!

  • @37 / 38

    Sadly, that’s not how it works. They don’t push through those “automatic downloads” until overnight tonight. It really is pointless, since most of us active users just download it immediately, and never see the advantage of the “auto download”. (outside of game updates — which I love!)

    It would be nice if they were to make an announcement on Monday, and allow us to queue up what we wanted to download for Tuesday. The key being that WE get to actually pick what we want auto downloaded, instead of what they choose to send… which is most likely determined by those games’ marketing plans slipping Sony a little cashola.

  • Great Update Grace Finally some U3 action and getting to try out Duke before I buy is a plus (hee hee hee) also homefront and gattling gears look awesome too. Some laggy tho and alot of errors.

  • Thanks for the UC3 BETA! Here’s hoping I get into the Journey one.

  • To all you morons complaining about the PS+ content…….GOD!
    You don’t get new content every week! You only get new content once a month!
    Sometimes there came be located some freebies and betas between the monthly update, but not every week!
    The PS+ content every week(because of the outage), is only going to last until July and then it’s back to the old times.(Probably)

  • Good update, but I’m bummed the MLB ’11: The Show doesn’t have a Brewers avatar yet. Will the last 10 teams be released next week?

  • Great update.

  • For everyone wondering about the Dissidia 012 DLC, its only coming on july 19th. -_-”

  • Why isn’t it up in europe yet?

  • Uncharted 3 beta i mean

  • Oh and nice update by the way. :)

  • still no chi sox avatar for mlb 11 the show how dissapointing

  • @Buff_Hamster
    MS:A did technically get DLC last week, though it was in patch form. I suspect the six remaining mini-festivals will be release bi-weekly.

    They blew through all of the content in one week across two updates. Those six missing weeks were apparently going to be only slightly less barren than last week. :p

    “Please say that old videogame content like Streets of Rage II will be our PSN title of the month. Please…”
    Its been known since February 16th that Genesis games would be PS+’s PSN titles. Go back and check the blog post on that date if you don’t believe me. In addition to SoR2 PS+ also got that MtG game free. Bomberman Ultra and Golden Axe 2 will be next months PS+ titles.

    Agreed! It sure would be great to have games on demand!

    Hopefully next week. Apparently there was a bug in the PC version and if it was found in the PS3 one as well that could explain the delay (they had hoped for a simultaneous release of the finale iirc).

  • Uncharted downloading along with NCAA this is a great update for me. First my anniversary dinner then some uncharted what a great day thank you sony!

  • Great, hope more good game coming.



  • Yes! Beyond Good and Evil finally! Just one question, where the hell is Chrono Cross?

  • Iv acturally got Duke nukem and iv got to say it’s pretty poor, a lot of my friends bought it then took and traded it back in again. the old ones where better

    anyways i just want to ask why does north america always get top priority over everything? they got the psn turned back on first, get updates sooner than us even able to download before us? (im in england)

    all im saying is it’d be nice if europe was thought about first for a change

  • I really appreciated the Welcome Back sales in week 1 and 2. Don’t really appreciate that the week 3 sales are just weeks 1 and 2 combined. What’s the point in that?

  • Sweet, been waiting for the PS3 version of Gatling Gears since I tried the demo on 360! :D

  • XCOM UFO Defense for a PS1 classic. Easy money for you Sony, especially since the new jerked over FPS version is coming out in a year or so.

    UC3 BETA is score!

  • when will we get CinemaNow?

  • I’m psyched about the beat and Beyond Good and Evil… but seriously… we need more for Plus people. Avatars?

  • ANY news on why the Dissidia DLC not present?

  • This is again a pretty slim PS Store update for the PSP. It seems that PSP support is going down. With the great amount of PSPs out there, Sony has to support development for that platform regardless of the new products coming. They can’t just drop it..

  • at last the duke nuken demo1

  • When are we going to get Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on the PlayStation Store? Europe has it.

  • Woot, bought and downloading BG&E!!!!

  • It’s ridiculous that we have to wait until July 17th for the Dissidia dlc- just sayin’.

  • Finally the Captain America table awesoooome

  • Where did angry birds go? And will it be back?

  • That first week of the free ps plus was nice for me, but ever since, I have really lost all intrest in keeping my subscription. I would have thought that for at least the first 45 days after everyone was able to get the ps plus for free and their welcome back that Sony would load us up with free things to make us non-subscribers start subscribing. Obviously they didn’t see it that way.

  • I saw that they got again 1 year-get 3 extra months on PS+. I would like to know, if I get it will it add up to the remaining days on my current service or does it start counting like day one? Thanks to anyone who answers :)

  • I got a message from gameloft for the modern combat game at a special price of 2.99…the message has an attachment but, I can not get to it…it won’t click on it. I don’t know why. But, I like that game from playing the demo. Can you guys get someone for me from gameloft please?

  • good stuff, good stuff… going to try the demo for Beyond Good & Evil HD, and it goes without saying… Uncharted 3!!! it’s too bad the beta is only for a couple weeks though… should be until the month it comes out if you ask me!

    @morris1129 – LAWL

  • 37# Ps3 said this is a ps3 not a ps1.
