  • Bought some of the No More Heroes dlc, can’t wait for next week though :)

  • Dang, I should of bought a PSN card while I was at Gamestop. I really want From Dust but maybe next time.

  • why is the playstation store still down??? it still gives no answers, but still saying we are getting out all this stuff you cant have because the store is DOWN!!!

  • I recommend Pong you guys. I’ve owned it since I was about 10 and it’s a darn good remake of a classic. Besides, Pong was the first commercially available game. Respect your elders!

  • btw the whole title is “Pong: The Next Level”

    Grace (or Morgan) should edit the title, it would cause less confusion with those who think it’s just plain-ol Pong.

  • White Knight Chronicles 2 (x26) ($0.99 – $4.99)
    Various add-on content.
    File size 100-600 KB

    THIS IS A SCAM the game just came out and DLC are already on disk!!
    (who stu?%$$ enough to paid for something they already paid for ??)

    i did cancel my order i wont paid full price game and getting only 80% of it
    (coz sony and compagny want to make more cash with DLC)

    this should be illegal!! and btw it is illegal!


  • No Castlevania Harmony of Despair… not downloading another thing from the PSN till CV:HoD gets released.

  • When will we be able to purchase the Dissidia Duodecim DLC from preorders and other stuff? The only one of those I have is Cloud! (Which is an awsome costume BTW) Are we still getting those at some point?

  • @104-105: the PS1 Pong is a pretty good game. It’s actually the first game i’ve owned since I was 8. Highly recomended if you like old games like that.

  • Hey Mr Morgan can or do you know when will the Battlefield 3 beta will be released? Please someone answer me if you know.

  • So, I can get FOUR PSP Star Wars games for $10???? WOW!!!

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2, Renegade Squadron, and The Force Unleashed for 4.99 each!!!!! :D

  • @ 16 yes, I have already done that. I will try again, but I do with with code and IT, so I’m not ignorant on the matter.

  • Bulletstorm $40? it’s $20 on amazon…..

  • Kia Ora from Aotearoa/New Zealand. We’re hosting the Rugby World Cup down here at the moment, but I’m def taking time out from watching the matches to play From Dust. That’s if SCEE can manage to pull finger for once and actually release content around the same timeframe when you fullahs get it. The EU Blog, sleepy thing that it is, does not usually announce it’s dearth of retarded content for about another 13 hours give or take each week…then we have to wait another three for them to actually load up the store. The reason I’m posting here is that I’m a PS+ member(pithy though our + content is compared to yours). Can you possibly indicate if SCEE is giving a 20% discount, or ANY discount for us for From Dust(that’s even if we are getting to see aught of that game this year)? Thanks SCEA…or is it SNEA…I think I can feel a sneeze coming on… Go All Blacks

  • Question if i own the trophies in gow origins from the free trail will they work for the disc one

  • No more betas for September? I heard there was a certain beta coming and well………

  • How long is From Dust on sale? I need a pay day :(

  • @117 there is a beta for all 4 one but only by giveaways

  • You need to buy a subscription for the privlidge of being able to buy the downloadable version of a SCEA game day and date with the retail release?

    Seriously, that’s a terrible idea that only costs you money and upsets your customers.

  • There is no reason why BulletStorm is $39,99.

    Even on Xbox 360 Game on Demand the game is $29,99.

  • Might pick up From Dust

  • And again no Castlevania HoD….

  • Cool, been meaning to pick up some of The Force Unleashed DLC. I’ve also been looking forward to more Section 8: Prejudice content.

  • @119 also the BF3 beta is suppose to be out this month hopefully well hear more with next weeks update

  • Only 20% off for From Dust? Oh well, maybe I’ll get it next time but at a full price…
    One thing for sure, I’ll get some of those RE content next week.

  • So I also bought Force Unleashed for PSP on a whim. At $2.50 it’s a crime not to buy it.

  • I like this update, except for the bullet storm price, new it goes for maybe high 20s, I bought it for 9 bucks off Gamefly.

  • I know this might be off-topic but when will rock of ages get on the PSN store I’ve been wanting to get it really bad.

  • – Sigh. –

    Even considering all of the faults I could (and probably later will) complain about. Such as the lack of content for this or that, poorly done pricing on content and downloadable content too. The lack of effort in the avatar department (where are those MLB avatars anyway?) I could (and will again most likely) continue later, but overall?

    That’ll do, pig; that’ll do.

    I’ll give you three stars for sheer amount of content and good sales (which really saved this weeks store update.) Congratulations on pulling just above the mediocre line this week.

    Standards where art thou?

  • Ace Combat is awesome! cant wait to see if i can get my hands on a copy soon…

  • Methinks the Battlefield 3 video was made with PC, rather than PS3, game footage…

  • Can we get the PS1 game Legend of Dragoon for the PSN in North America?

  • lol @ BulletStorm for $40

  • If you don’t post the prices, how can we know the price after rebate? Man, this is lame, I won’t connect to the store and search for the games just to know the prices… fail.

  • Pong sounds interesting, but what about Gex enter the gecko and Ridge Racer 1 & 2?

  • Castlevania has a release date listed on many gaming websites as Sept. 30th.

  • @ 139 christreignz

    no it doesn’t!!! nobody knows the release date, konami has yet to release a date to be exact, they just said of of summer. so stop posting false information!!!

  • end of summer!!!

  • @140 Korn: Quit whining. I am just reporting what I read. The site changed it from 9/30 to Sept. 2011. You need to chill.

  • It isn’t false information, as it is speculative information, if no one knows, how can it be false?

  • Loving Renegade Ops!!

    I’ve only tried it on single player so far but I’m excited to try out the dynamic setting with split screen! Looked really wicked and slick in the trailer! =D

    Hoping for lots of level/stage DLC for this one!

  • Wait, the discounts on Lucasarts games stack? Oh man, perfect time to stock up for the Vita.



    FF-X HD REMAKE!!!!



  • There’s a lot of content here, too bad it’s not this easy to see it all on the PS Store itself. I love seeing full game downloads coming more and more to the PSN. One thing I can’t help but wonder is when a game is released for digital download that is also available on Xbox Live, why do Xbox owners pay less than PS3 owners? For example: Bulletstorm, it is $39.99 on PSN, but if I go to Xbox Live it’s $29.99. What is stopping me from buying it on Xbox 360 rather than PS3?

  • @131:
    Thou is a second person singular form, coming from the old english thu (as recorded in Beowulf for example). Maybe you could still keep the obsolescence of your final statement by rephrasing it as “Standards, wherefore are ye?”

Please enter your date of birth.
