  • thanks for another week of great content!!!!


    Love PS+. Just renewed my original subscription too.

  • The Last of Us avatars already that’s fast!

  • last of us free dynamic theme, wow you guys were on top of it!!!!!

  • MGS 1 should go on sale.


  • what songs are the everybody dance packs? i wouldnt mind the RUN-DMC holiday song..

  • Any chance we will get more cloud storage space? 150 isn’t much considering Skyrim takes up over 5mb per save

  • Beat Hazard Ultra – 50% off ? now thats what I want and have been waiting for :) other wise kinda boring week

  • After months of waiting, something I really wanted has been discounted on PSN+?!
    Good things do come to those who wait.

    Although… It would be really helpful if you guys had a schedule in advance for what games will be discounted for PSN+. Hint hint, wink wink nudge nudge nudge know what i mean, know what I mean?

    Anyway, w00t. Beat Hazard Ultra here I come.

    • The most we can do in advance is the monthly PlayStation Plus preview which publishes every first Monday of the month on the blog. Of course, any content there is subject to change, but it gives a good indication of what’s coming.

  • Awesomeee!!
    Thanks for the free last of us’s dynamic THEME! :D

  • The static theme is there but the Last of Us dynamic theme is missing.

  • SERIOUSLY!!!!!!




  • Just the KOF demo for me.

    But as usual, Thanks for the update.

  • Nice to see The Last of Us content out already :)

    Got the Static theme, couldn’t find the Dynamic theme though. Was this forgotten?

  • PS3 Legacy: 3
    PS2 Legacy: 0
    PS1 Legacy: 0
    PSP Legacy: 0
    PCE Legacy: 0


    [Y]ou’d think maybe lesser know titles would be promoted instead of ones that already “topped the charts”. [P]opularity rule I suppose. [S]eems like an ok update though 1 PSN game is rather light. [3] more legacy titles for the tripple is solid. [Y]et not a drop of support for other supported systems.

    [L]iking the amount of videos to check out, its a step up from the previous week or so. [O]f course there is plenty of DLC and other knickknacks to gloss over. [D]iscounts are kind of weak but hopefully they’ll be a year end / holiday sale with next weeks update. [A]ll in all this is a slightly below average update. [G]oing to be dreading the annual january PSN drought. [A]lso, what’s with those bundles? [I]’m not seeing much value there given each games age… especially Warhawk. [N]o matter though as that stuff isn’t for me.

    2 out of 5 stars for this week.

  • Can’t seem to find The Last of Us Dynamic theme. Only the Static one. Is the dynamic theme US only or something? (I’m from Canada)

  • Kind of lame that you are putting full PS3 games on discount for the holiday sale. I know how to get these games on sale at other retailers, and in disc form which carries re-sale value. PSN games, on the other hand, are far more unique to PSN and a sale on these are infinitely more valuable.

    That being said, I’ve spent so much money at Best Buy and other outlets this season, I should be thanking you that I’ll only be dropping $3 this week on PSN, for the 2 discounted Marvel tables.

    Hoping for some PSN games in the coming holiday weeks. Thanks.

  • @18 Couldn’t find it either, hoping for a reply about this :(

  • My PSN PLUS Subscription will expire on December 29th, so I will renew it on the next day on December 30th. My question is this: For one short day, I know I will lost everything for a short period of time. But I will be able to retrieve them ALL BACK – Even that goes for FULL Games that were given for free in the past, right?

    By the way, regarding PSOne Classics- WHY THE [DELETED] IS THERE NO DISCOUNTED PRICES ON THEM?!?!?!? This is Holiday Seasons and you guys should be able to give us discounted prices on all of them… that was included in this list for Today’s Update. What is up with that??? Thanx.

  • Where’s Red Dead Redemption Bundle 30% discount for PS+ subscribers? You guys said it’s gonna happen today in the “Playstation Plus December Preview” post a few days ago. Maybe the date was incorrect…

  • nothing worth exiting out of a game for again.. its hard to even want to buy stuff now that the freedom has been taken away when using the content

    it was nice knowing that i could buy like an add-on and be able to use it on my ps3 then go to like my uncle or step-dads house and play it there w/o having to lug my ps3 around

    i dont see myself buying any new dlc unless it like comes w/ a retail title or somethin but im sure even that content works the same way

  • So much content! Playing Saints row 3 right now, going to hop onto the store and check out the skyrim theme and a lot of avatars too!

  • Hey look another update with nothing for the psp users! seriously sucks to be a psp gamer, we get no love even when the Vita can play psp games. one would think that sony would take advantage of that and release all the other psp games that have yet to hit the psn like Crisis Core, anime games like naruto. Heck why not do what you do for ps1 classic and get some imported psp games like the bleach games?

    Seriously why are suck awesome games still yet to be released on the psn, or localized? i hope the Vita doesnt end up like the psp, but seeing as how i doubt youll change form the way you treated the psp you guys wont take the Vita seriously as well.

  • I can’t see the ‘The Last Of Us Dynamic Theme’ on the Store yet? :( Good update tho;)

  • Yeah, I just ran a search for “Last of Us” and only saw the static theme, as well as the avatars, trailers, etc. Any indication as to whether we’ll get the dynamic theme soon?

  • By the way…

    “Sonic CD Announcement Trailer”

    Shouldn’t it be a Launch Trailer? The game is out this week on EU PSN & other platforms.

  • Suikoden II.

  • I would like some penguin PS3 players avatars :)

  • Absolutely awesome (and dare I say cute) logo for this weeks update. :P I wish we could have those penguins as an avatar or them playing pong as a dynamic theme etc… :P

  • Any chance of us getting those Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City Avatars that Europe got awhile back

  • Megadeth!!!

  • Only the Marvel Pinball Vengeance & Virtue DLC for me this week, been looking forward to the new tables for a long time!

  • Where is the RENEGADE OPS DLC its been late 2 months i got a message from Sony telling me that the DLC will come out on the December 13th where is it ?

  • This month I will pick up a few PSOne classics and The Last of US dynamic theme. I want to see if it is better than my Uncharted 3 dynamic theme ¬¬

  • Can you tell me what is in the Split Second bundle? Even with the PS+ discount, it is more expensive than the disc at Amazon, and I don’t see a lot of DLC out for it.

  • Great content !!
    A question: When Bejeweled 3 will be available in PSN Store ?
    Thanks !

  • Compared to Eu, NA PS+ is rather lackluster. There PS+ get a game every two days that was previously available on PS+ + the usual content :/

  • hmm… kinda weak for a near-christmas update.. the drought continues for plus members…

  • When will Sony allow Amazon to get digital PSN content on their store?

    After the outage, I don’t trust my CC info to Sony. I don’t like physical psn cards, I prefer to try to keep the environment good.

  • I really want that banner image as a wallpaper. :O

  • Free pinball.

    No reason to spend money. My holidays are safe once again.

  • Anyone who has played Jurassic Park – Is the $22.49 price tag worth it in your opinion? or should I wait until they have a bigger discount, which they inevitably will at some point?

  • Hey wait… i just bought split second for 10 dls and now its bundled at 34? i dont understand

  • Hey PSN, and Happy Holidays. All these sales are great and all, but you know what would make an AMAZING gift for the holidays!? Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas being released in the PS2 Classics section! :D

  • Good bundles! Also, thanks for the PS+ codes e-mail, Sony!! :D

  • I’m looking @ some of the bundles and savings… Not to mention the PS+ stuff and this update looks pretty sweet! Thx! I bet there r allot of happy ppl out there… I know I am! :)

  • @34 It will probably be sent you to through xmb message today not sure what time depends on how many pre orders they need to give out

  • BEAT HAZARD ULTRA is a MUST BUY if you have any EDM (Trance, Drum And Bass, Jungle, Dubstep, House, Darkstep, Progressive, Elsectro, Moombahcore) saved on your PS3 HDD (I have 100gb+ worth) It works AMAZINGLY well with that kind of music. ESPECIALLY if you turn the visuals to 200%. It turns into a full blown EYEGASM!!

    I played this so much I crossed the 1 Billion point mark (and hit Elite 99) last night. Its VERY addictive. Worth every penny if you are into EDM.
