It’s no secret that this week sees the release of one of the biggest games of the year: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Starting today, you can start using Call of Duty ELITE, a premium membership specifically for the Call of Duty series. ELITE helps you elevate your multiplayer game, whether you’re new to the frantic battlegrounds, or a bona fide veteran of the series.

Today is also the day Square Enix’s “Winter of RPG’s” kicks off starting with Chrono Cross. Journey through two parallel dimensions in a remarkable quest featuring a huge cast of characters, an engaging battle system, and one of the greatest original soundtracks of any game. If you missed it before, you’ll want to experience it this Winter.


And lastly, free and exclusive for PlayStation Plus is the incredibly charming “Where is my Heart?” Breaking new ground in the PS mini lineup, Where is my Heart? tells the story of a family of monsters searching for a new place to call home.

  • thanks for another week of great content!!

  • Update time!!

  • Hey, remember that Playstation Play promotion? I bought Renegade Ops through that, and it says that there will be a new vehicle and character pack provided no later than October 31, 2011. Has that been forgotten entirely, I haven’t been able to find any kind of update on that information.

    I spent an hour on the phone earlier today (gave me a chance to catch up on some reading) waiting for someone to be able to give me some information about it, but they seemed to recommend I just get a refund on the game, and give it up.

    • There’s been a delay in the DLC being released; however we’ve got you guys in mind. We’re working with SEGA to ensure it gets released as soon as possible, but sometimes these delays do occur. When it releases, you’re taken care of.

  • When will we see PS2 classics and PS1 classics released also with a buy one get one free rate?

  • Will DL Rayman Origins Demo BUT will not Pay a Retail PRICE for this $59.99 this game. Better wait till Black Friday at $29.99

  • A fantastic soundtrack this week, and not much else.

    Oh well.

  • I’m still waiting on the rest of the MLB avatars. Will we ever get them?

  • lol, I got the MGS HD collection. When I looked at the back of the manual, I saw a wallpaper or dynamit theme? Probably a new one to be released today but nothing.

  • $29.99 for the Monopoly game? That’s a joke, way to kill any interest I had in the game by grossly overpricing it

  • Stuntman Ignition PS2 classic why would you ever want that just go out the ps3 one its way better

  • when will good games for PS1 be released like tekken 3. then tekken tag-4?

    when will all the socoms for ps2 be released?

    twisted metal ps2

  • No MGS HD Digital? :(

  • I have Stuntman Ignition on disc, but it still won’t work on my PS3 though right? If not, it’s a shame, cause I don’t want to have to pay $10 for a game I already own.

  • Where is the Two Worlds II expansion? It was supposed to be released in OCTOBER?!?!?!?!

  • It would have been good to get the The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Theme this week. Why is it not out yet?

  • I know it’s retro PS1 titles, but thank you SE for the winter of RPGs. I have something to play this winter.

  • put the FFXIII-2 videos in 1080p!!!! sheesh

  • “TO MICHAEL!!!”
    My prayers have been answered!!!
    Thanks for making the “To Michael video” available to download!
    About to play some MGS HD! Yippppiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Suikoden II. Just make it ******* happen already.

  • When are the Hasbro Family Game Night demos coming out? Weren’t they mentioned a few weeks ago?

  • That Where Is My Heart video was actually pretty cool. Chrono Cross is great (although I wish Square-Enix would quit with their 10 dollar premium). I’ll play that Rayman Origins demo. I love the first Rayman but this game looks a little too goofy for me and if you couple that with the fact that it was made for co-op I’m not sure how good it’s going to be. We’ll see…

  • May be off-topic, but I’m holding my breath on an ‘Uncharted 3’ patch. Don’t get me wrong, this game is another PS3 marvel… but there are alot of technical issues and gamebreakers (no cutscene gallery? etc), in my opinion. But I’m trusting Naughty Dog will come with a fix.

  • When are you gonna start doing some good price updates on games? I wanna do some game shopping but for several months now you have offered nothing interesting on price updates, and very little games at that.

    Where are the Winter game sales, Holiday game sales or whatever?

    You all should really look into doing Seasonal Game Sales.

    Spring Game Sale
    Summer Game Sale
    Fall Game Sale
    Winter Game Sale
    Thanksgiving Game Sale
    Holiday/Xmas Game Sale
    New Year Game Sale

    and so on. Bring on more Game Sales and you would see a jump in sales big time by a lot of people.

  • Looks like I’m downloading the Rayman Origins demo, Ratchet & Clank All 4 One demo (waiting for the game to arrive in the mail actually), the Patapon 3 free add-ons, and the free Where Is My Heart? mini (through Plus). Nothing to buy for me this week! That’s okay though, I have a huge backlog of games to get to…

  • Fight Night for 5 bucks Awesome :D


  • Where Is My Heart looks surprisingly interesting.

    Looking forward to the Rayman Origins demo too.

  • Getting the Rayman Origins demo and Where is my Heart. But other than that nothing special. You guys said the next Uncharted 3 DLC is very close and right around the corner. So I thought it was either this week or next week… guess it’s next week :)

  • @ATLRoAcH

    It’s starting to look like we’re not getting them. It’s like they’ve forgotten or don’t care one. Hopefully, I’m wrong.

  • When will we get the Jak and Daxter series on ps2 classics or are we geting them at all?

  • Since you guys at the PSN are having difficulty coming up with games for the PS2 Classics section, which I am all for by the way. The PS2 was the greatest system of all time. It defined a generation, a generation I was honored to be apart of. Allow me to suggest some games: Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Final Fantasy XII, Hitman Blood Money (including its predecessors Silent Assassin, and Contracts.) and Dynasty Warriors 5.
    Thanks for listening. :)

  • EA, if you earn some money from digital sales, you should lower your prices little bit. 30$ for Dead Space is simply ripoff, I got it for 17$ new. At least do some Plus discount.

  • Uncharted 3 Avatars

    Kevin Butler Avatars

    Long.Live.Play Avatars

  • I’m loving the idea behind the digital version of Fight Night Champion

  • Will be downloading Rayman Orgins demo along with Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One demo. While that downloads I’ll be playing MW3! Also I will be getting the elite since I have the money for it now! Another great week Sony!

  • Got my 10 bucks finally.

    UC3 has crashed my PS3 several times. I have a older 80 gig w/ ps2 support.
    (plus sometimes I get green lines and stuff when I first turn it on. Any one else?)

    It is cool how Fight Night Champion is selling the game piece by piece. I love the fact I could scan my face into the game and create myself as a boxer.

  • Hey Morgan,

    I’m writing to make a few requests and suggestions that I know would help increase sales, first the suggestions…

    1. To standardize the time in which the Store is updated, take a note from what the Playstation Home Team does and shut down the store at Midnight and update the store. So when people wake up the store will be ready and updated, instead of these random late and sometime early store updates
    2. Get in contact with the firmware team and have them add the ability in the next firmware update to allow us to continue to listen to our music when we enter the PS Store
    3. Lower the Price of PS1 back to $4.99 ea instead of $5.99 ea, I was much more tempted to get a $20 PSN Card and buy 4 PS1 games for $20, now I just won’t buy them unless their on sale.
    4. Add a gifting feature to the Store, so we can gift games and other DLC to friends and family
    5. Suggest to Publishers that bundling is a great idea, even PS1 games. (i.e. Resident Evil 1, 2 & 3 for $11.99 or Crash Banidcoot 1, 2, 3 & CTR for $19.99)

    To Be Continued…

  • Now for the requests

    1. Bring out the Original Twisted Metal for PS1 and TM 3 & 4
    2. Have a Sale on Folklore’s DLC
    3. Bring out the PS1 NFS Series (Really Love NFS III Hot Pursuit)
    4 Bundle the Interactive Art series (i.e. Aquatopia, Mesmerize Distort and Trace & Tori Emaki) for $3.99

    Also please let Publishers know that games are just getting to expensive and their price increase is really not helping, like the PS1 titles where they used to be $4.99 and are now regularly $5.99, I am now seeing games that usually would be $9.99 are now $14.99, I refuse to pay more than $9.99 for a single downloadable game unless it is episodic like Back to the Future or Jurassic Park. I mean a great example would be Plants Vs. Zombies. The app on the iphone is I think $2.99 but on the PS Store it’s $14.99, and I know that it has more to it but, I know not enough to justify a $14.99 price. Although some may buy these games I know a lot of people would agree with me. I always vote with my wallet to show my support for games but I just don’t understand why in such hardtimes everyone feels so justified to raise prices rather than lower them. Just my opinion I guess, well keep up the good work.


    • Thanks for the feedback! All great ideas, but easier said than done ; ) We have however, been working with publishers for bundles on PS3 downloadable titles. Look for more of this in the future.

  • Looks like a nice week to download some Demos for my family to play!

  • Not much to purchase this week. It’ll mostly be demos and trailers for me.

  • wow… not you playstation but the gamers. chrono cross was amazing, i still play it but so far hardly any comments on it finally being out. instead just more complaints for far weaker games to come out or the damn mlb icons. its an icon. its mostly pointless. give up cause for the past like nine months youve asked about them and nothing. they’re intirely idiotic.

  • Only Chrono Cross make’s me happy. Nothing for me on this week.

  • @mixedkidbx

    They had a Black Friday sale last year, and I scored Joe Danger for half price. It was the first time Joe Danger went on sale. Hopefully they’ll have a boatload of price cuts for this time around.

  • The same preorder exclusive dynamic theme for Festival of Blood now given away to Plus? Not good to release exclusive offers especially two weeks later.

  • Question, will you guys be putting MW3 for download any time soon, my PS3 stop reading disc :( (first gen 60 gig) and I have no money to replace the system at this time, I do have for the game itself if it were available to me, that and Uncharted 3 please!!

  • im not gonna purchase that much but it will do.

  • Stuntman ignition .. stupid move.. very stupid move

  • Halloween Wraith Dynamic Theme ($2.99)
    I LOL’d at the timeliness.

  • Hey you guys have Just Cause 2 avatars? my friend showed my hilarious stunt videos. I was wondering if you could get a digital download of the game available on the store?

  • not that great of an update. so as a PS+ member, not only could I have saved money not pre-ordering the Infamous 2 DLC, but now I can get the theme that came with it for free? that’s pretty low
