  • Pretty lackluster update. Eight new games? Normally that would be good but as it is all PS3 stuff its unbalanced. New PS1/PS1i/PS2/PSP/Mini/PCE games are where? The “12 for ’12” sale is lame. Why is it the NeoGeo sale is only for the PS3 versions of the games? Man, PSP owners really can’t catch a break. What a snoozefest. The worst part of it is the extremely smug looking Carz 2 icon. :p

  • Yay new maps! Time to get back into Uncharted 3.

    Can we please get a Castlevania: HoD game+dlc bundle for like $20. No way I’m gonna pay $43 for all of it knowing no one is gonna be playing the DLC because its too expensive.

  • Nice update. Can’t wait to try out Kingdoms of Amalur, looks great…

    …anyway, Deus Ex avatars? Are we getting them? Been on the EU store forever, any chance they’ll be released here?

  • lol cars 2, 40$ what a ripp off… again… :(

  • No SD on Tester 3? The full episodes had better be available in SD for those of us without an HDTV.

  • Sweet Battlefield DLC and Uncharted 3 DLC!

    I’m so excited =D

  • Awesome update! I’m really excited for the KOA: Reckoning demo and the beta =D. I just wish I could get Shadow of the Colossus and Crysis 2 but things are tight, hopefully later. Thanks for all the hard work and early update Grace!

  • @1 I disagree.. great update.. and the 12/12 is awesome.. my wallet is broken now.

  • I just swooped up Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, PixelJunk Shooter, and this sweet Yakuza 4 avatar :D

  • WOW! Great stuff this week! Thanks PSN!

  • Also

    Lol @megamixer for being first…. first to complain at least.

  • Sorry, Sidescroller, not Shooter.

  • Another below average week. Remind me again why I am a + member since the first week. It seems there is only one good update a month.

    • First access to Starhawk beta exclusively for Plus? Do you have all the games from 12 for ’12? If not, Plus gets them to you dirt cheap. Like…criminal cheap.

  • Kingdom of Almalur demo the only good thing on here….

  • The “12 for ’12″ sale is preposterous. Last year, the discount for games were 50% for EVERYONE. Plus users didn’t have any discount. Now you want us think plus offers better discounts? I was expecting a 70% discount for plus users, not the same discount we had last year because you know, if it was possible last year, why not this year as well?

    As you can see, I am a Plus user.

    I’ll post a link in my next comment to show proof, not this one because it will be in approval.

  • Nice car pack for GT5 today. :)

    Will also try the Kingdoms of Amalur demo. Looks pretty cool.

    Thanks for the update. :)

  • I’d like if there were demos available for Zack Zero or Amy – guess I’ll wait until there is a demo for them maybe, or word of mouth. Which for Amy, has been pretty bad so far!

  • Is the deal spend 60 get 10 still available? I think it was something said to be monthly but i never head of it again.

    • This deal was never stated to be a monthly or recurring deal. It is not currently a promo at this time as well.

  • Good update

  • 1st Uncharted 3 map pack finally. Awesome.

  • Why can’t we get the ICO/ SotC HD Collection as a bundle as promised?
    The UK/EU Store has it, and at a discounted price (£19.99, or £13.99 separately)

    Am excited to have them digitally, but not at the price you are offering, and not separately.

    Other than that, picked up SidewayNY and Rocketbirds.

  • Also, everyone should get Pixeljunk Sidescroller for half-off if you’re a PSN+ user. Best 2011 PSN game IMO.

  • So much stuff, so little time :D

  • damn naughty dog your way over your head i have 14 bucks on psn i was expecting the maps to be 4.99 since they are remastered or from uncharted 2 and i see 10 bucks for 4 uncharted 2 maps ,i wanted to get something off PSN sale like Flower or Rochard and now because of your greedy maps now i cant buy anything off the sale!

  • Looks like a good time to snag Payday The Heist :) Too bad I have a list of other games still waiting to be played :/

  • got my ultimate marvel costumes and starhawk beta im all godo!

  • Is HydroPhobia worth 3 dollars? I heard it was a pretty not good to put it nicely.

  • I really don’t understand why you even own a PS3… or anything Sony.

    Let alone, why you take the time to sit at your computer waiting all day for the store to update just to criticize EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

    Man, just go out. Do something else. Anything. Go get laid.

  • Will we see more GREAT TRIPLE AAA TITLES from Playstation One Classics to make their way to PSN Store this year? I mean… Really, we need more of that – and that goes for PSP and Playstation Vita (Digital Games) as well?

  • Another update that doesnt look a bit interesting for my taste. It would have been nice to see a 12 for 12 on psp games, but you refuse to support the psp. i hope this wont be the case for the vita, but its not showing a good sign if you havent taken the psp seriously.

    I’m sadden by the fact that ico/SotC is overpriced. 40$ for both games when i can get a physical copy of both games for about half the price (new). I dont see the point in getting the digital format of the game when its cheaper to get the physical. shouldnt it be the other way around?

  • Funk, my comment was directed to “megamixer”…. ugh post fail.

  • GT5 DLC is out! awwesome news! Good update.

  • @27 NOOO! I got it for free with PS+ and still felt ripped off.

  • Gotta love GT5 DLC, Anybody have a PSN Card? :p

  • When are the PSP dual packs that were advertised for January gonna be available?
    January is half over and they’ve Vermont stores since the 3rd just not on psn. :(

  • Ugh typo. Been in stores. >.<

  • Good megamixer. I guess he’s finally lost it this week.

  • Yes, I always wanted to play on the sanctuary on Uncharted 3.

  • Oh nevermind about the Star Hawk Beta, apparently public beta, doesn’t mean “Public” beta =/.

  • Also if you haven’t already…

    Get Dungeon Defenders! $7 is a good deal for a game that gives you a ton of playtime. I bought it for $15 and I think it’s the best $15 I ever spent on a DLC game (besides Fat Princess and Castle Crashers – both of which are worthy of the $15 price tag)

    I also suggest getting Rocketbirds for $5, Sadly I got it when it came out and it feels worth the $5 (not $10) but I’m a sucker for games with a good idea on animation.

    Not sure if I should get Pixeljunk Sidescroller or not.

    I would be more than happy enough to pick up Payday the Heist. I would love to like the game but I played the demo and the movements felt sluggish for me and it felt a little hard (playing with CPU). Any thoughts? Maybe I should Re-download the demo and give it a second go?

    I’ll also be saving $30 for both Gotham City Imposters AND Journey when they come out :)

  • @ Megamixer
    For someone who has their avatar from the zen-like, peaceful game flOw, you sure have some anger issues.
    My avatar says “Get the quack out! Don’t be so cheep!”

  • @24 If you had 25$ you could just buy the fortune hunters club.

  • Gamers are spoiled! There’s new games, sales on good games, digital releases of good games, demos of potentially good games, a beta for what undoubtedly will be a good game, DLC for a good game, and still people gripe. It’s as if all that was released this week was Pong: the Original Edition.

    The only thing I can find wrong with this, if something must be pointed out (since that’s the cool thing to do here) is that there’s a Christmas theme for sale:
    Christmas Dynamic Theme ($2.99)
    – It’s January!

  • I just want the GT5 DLCs

  • @C-Murph666

    He bashes the Store updates every week, yet he has a total of 9 games on his trophy card. He is just a troll so ignore him.

  • Is this new Gran Turismo 5 DLC included in the GT5 XL Edition? Possibly part of the redeem code that is included in the game case?

  • When will the update be available in sweden? the time is 00:50 here, so i know when to look at Playstaton Store?

  • @proskatercam the answer is No. they explained all that in the previous GT5 pack dlc 3 post.

  • Nice nice update. Saints Row 3 DLC is coming at just the right time for me. Add Cheapy D and Dungeon defenders for a great price, and that makes for a fine Tuesday. Might just put off the GT5 DLC for now since I have enough to do at the moment.

    It’s too bad these updates suck so much for so many people. I imagine if they gave away Uncharted 3 on PSN for free, people would complain that the file is too big.

    …and of course Megamixer would complain that it was not a new PS1/PS1i/PS2/PSP/Mini/PCE game out that same week.
