  • Killzone 3 for free?! Cool!

  • i will be buying Killzone 3 mutiplayer.But once i buy it will I keep all the dlc map packs?

  • in before mega whiner complaining about lack of games he already owns!!!!

  • Great update.

  • WOW THIS IS A GREAT UPDATE!!! Thanks so much for all the great content as always Sony!!!!

  • MotorStorm: Arctic Edge and Patapon are available for PS3 now? (See under “Updates”.)

  • Primal ($9.99) File size: 3.37 MB

    Is that even possible?

  • Primal ($9.99): 3.37 GB


  • Woah new Uncharted 3 avatars?THNX

  • Thanks for the update!

    Are we getting trophies support for this Killzone 3 Multiplayer for free?

  • So Killzone 3 doesn’t include the singleplayer right?

  • What about the Facebook App? It is probably a line or two of code. So what is the hold up?

  • Wasn’t Motorstorm RC supposed to come out today?
    On Price Updates there are various PSP games marked as PS3 (ex. Patapon, Motorstorm AE)

  • When will we be informed of new additions of PSP Legacy, PSOne, PS2 Classics, and PSN Cross Compatible titles being released and/or updated for use with the Vita?

    Thus far I have been happy with my Vita, but I have a fair ammount of PSP and PSOne titles that are not useable with my Vita, and I would be more inclined to pay for PS2 Classics if they were to work on the Vita.

  • first update i’ve seen in a while that was even remotely decent

    the vita stuff is cool but other than the revalations and ff13-2 stuff everything else is kinda weak

  • Great update this week

  • Awesomee! Cant wait to play Killzone 3!!
    Awesome update as always!

  • Any chance that Dark Cloud 1,2 and Rouge Galaxy might get a HD Collection ether by Game Disc or Download?

  • i’d rather be able to play the psp games i already bought rather than these stupid a** pointless psp mini games

    hopefully they change this because im not re-purchasing a game just because its “redesigned” for the vita

    thats a load of bs

  • Being a new owner of the VITA I’m finding it really hard to figure out what is\isn’t compatible with the VITA. When I bought it I thought all the PS1, MINI, and PSP games were compatible, is that the ultimate goal? So far the system looks great but is a bit…uhmm…empty compaired to my kids IPOD. Also, a nice 50% off PSP games to celebrate VITA would be awesome as Loco Roco is a must buy but $24 is too much. Oh and one last request…please allow us to combine or transfer apps (once) to another PSN account. I have 3 accounts but the VITA only being allowed to hook up to one is killing me as I have VITA compatible games on all the accounts :(

    BTW…Uncharted looks unbelievable on the VITA…great job!

  • Any word on when music unlimited will come to vita?

  • Yet another cambridge studio classic up, but what of Medievil 2?

    Their games really should be continued as HD PSN titles as well, both the primal series and Medievil (especially Medievil). :)

  • looking forward to some of that Soul Caliber add-on action this weekend~

  • Who decides what content available for both the PS3 and the Vita is free, and what is charged separately? Two fighting games released side by side: Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 releases its DLC for both, meaning you buy for one it is free for the other. Blazblue: CSE, however, doesn’t opt for this feature. Notice how I didn’t lean toward any kind of entitlement. Still, though, the Blazblue DLC for the Vita looks like it’s already included in the game, whereas the PS3 version at least looks like something is added to the game. Could you enlighten me?

  • Seven weeks since the latest PSOne Classic…sure hope that wasn’t the last. I’m dying to get Tomba! at a decent price.

  • finally!!!!!!! LOL

  • should of known last weeks fat ps plus was for this week also. pretty weak update IN MY OPINION

  • Guys get Killzone 3 only 15 bucks got it on release and have 452 hours online, its totally worth it ,you get all maps,double xp,botzone and you dont need a disk. and play warzone or operations those are the best modes. im logging in right now see you there.

  • OMG Sony you guys are the best! Sorry for giving you trouble in the previous weeks. It’s just that i’m so lonely and am trying to seek attention :(

    Thanks again!

  • 29 LOL

  • Once again, no PS1 games? Thought you said you were going to have some soon…I know I haven’t been the only one asking for these.

  • Not a bad update at all. I wish they would have the MLB 12 The Show demo. Most games I know will have demos before they are released. I saw The Tester. Let’s just say they was a lot of fighting in that episode I liked it. Won’t touch the MLB 2K12 game at a all. So looking forward to the show next week. I’ll be on PS Blog and listening to the great podcasts every week. Thanks Sony

  • It’s nice to see this update before Wednesday, even though the only thing of interest to me is a slightly discounted mini for being a Plus member.

  • @29 HA HA :P have a gold star

  • Im surprised the command attack dlc came out today, i thought it would be out in april and free uncharted 3 avatars YEAH

  • Getting the Bikini for Serah.

  • I would like to second Mr_Shots’s request for additional PS1 games.

  • “connection to the server timed out” every time I try to vote.

  • *facepalm. I can’t wait till march rolls around. The PS+ this week is lame as hell. 50% off a multiplayer portion of a game I already own (and have owned for more than a year)? Right… That makes sense. The only thing in this damn update that even remotely interests me is the PS2 classic Primal. You know an update is seriously lacking when that’s the highlight (not hating on the game). Here I thought my brand new Vita might have something to download :S

  • @29. ROFL. I see what you did there…

  • Twisted Metal soundtrack? Yes! Jaffe came through! I am down for that!

  • Been waiting for new PSP games for the Vita…I have no PS3 so I can’t do the transfer workaround for the non-compatible games I want. Why don’t you want my money? lol

  • I am also a proud new Vita owner.

    And, while I am happy with the new hardware, I am very troubled by the fact that I cant use my Vita to download ALL of the PSP games that I have already paid for using just my Vita.

    I dont have a PS3.
    I shouldnt have to feel punished because of this.

    The Vita and all that came with it costs me upwards $400+. This is already ALOT for a gaming handheld.
    Investors feel the same way about this. But, after buying this, I feel almost a bit cheated that I cant play 80% of the games in my PSN account that I have already purchased. Especially, the heavy-hitters. There is no excuse for me not being able to download Metal Gear PeaceWalker. That’s just crazy.

    Sony I hope you are listening.

    We got your back.
    But, you need to have OURS too.

    Win-Win right?

  • What hyperFlash Said :).
    you need Dark Cloud 1 and 2 Portable mainly. RG seems more of a system game though

  • @20, sounds like your Vita purchase was built up on a lack of research. If you regret buying it, I’m sure you’ll get a very good price selling it.

  • Awesome update by the way MotorStorm Artic edge for PS3? Thats a suprise to me im a huge motorstorm fan since the first motorstorm for PS3 :)

  • Decent Update and all but i was wondering if you guys are going to add apps like facebook and twitter to the ps3 TY!!!

  • An update on the release of the Skype Vita app would be awesome.

  • MW3 DLC not working….?? New maps no where to be found.

  • MotorStorm Arctic Edge (Price Change) (PS3) (now $9.99, original price $19.99)
    Patapon (Price Change) (PS3) (now $9.99, original price $15.99)

    Pretty sure these are PSP games.
