  • Wait, it’s more expensive to buy the Pink songs separately than it is to buy them as a bundle?
    That has to be a typo.

  • @31, you know the RE4 avatars have Ada, right? :3

  • Thank you UBISoft & Sony for the Ghost Recon beta!

  • And ill agree with #48 Joeltron3030.

    Why exactly are APPs getting first priority for the Vita than actual games? i would assume these apps (paint park, skype, etc) are the reasons why things like Psp and Ps1 support is not coming to us right now. i mean if they can put so much effort into getting these app which some of us didnt even ask for, or for app that shouldnt be on a video game system. They could have used those efforts to get the ps1 support up and running, and probably get some psp titles in these update. But they choose not to just so these apps can be used for a video game system.

  • Since you are not going to make HD Remeakes of these games why don’t you release these games as PS2 Classics

    Ratchet Deadlocked
    Jak X: Combat Racing
    Twisted Metal: Black
    Tourist Trophy
    Gran Turismo 3: A-spec
    Gran Turismo 4
    Hot Shots Golf 3
    Hot Shots Golf Fore!
    ATV Offroad Fury
    ATV Offroad Fury 2
    ATV Offroad Fury 3
    ATV Offroad Fury 4

    These are all games that SONY OWNS


  • *THEM

  • Frogger HD for Plus members? Cool!
    Paint Park, free for the Vita? Cool!
    All of that Uncharted 3 DLC only takes up 100kb? Wait a minute…I see what happened there.

    *** ***
    Here’s my suggestion for the Vita, since everyone’s giving their input:
    This would work great with Paint Park. Enable a lock mode, so young kids can use the Vita without leaving the app. They could swipe, tap, use the camera in the app, and mess with all of the buttons, without leaving the app as “lock” mode would only unlock by holding both the select and start button. Maybe even include a fake LiveArea so they can move screens up/down and left/right, all while staying in the app.

  • @44 – I regret it as well, as such a fan of Uncharted i immediatley ruched to get it and i though the same thing with the FHC , thinking it was a limited time, 5 months is not a limited time and it was nothing more than a ripoff with old content.

  • Thanks for Paint Park guys. I was wondering why MGS: Peace Walker is $10 more on PSN than retail stores? I’d purchase this game again for my Vita but for the Greatest Hits price of $20 everyone else is charging for the hard copy.

  • I want Alundra 1 & 2 on the Vita ASAP. I have it on the PSP but want it on my Vita since I don’t play the old PSP. So lets get a move on Sony and add those games already. Sheesh

  • Another weak week for me. Not getting anything special.
    Updates used to be better.

  • Were is saint row the third

  • P!nk Pack for Rock Band 3 is more expensive than buying each song separately?

  • I have to admit, I am a little disappointed with these updates week after week. Even with so much content to bring over to PSN, there is only a tiny trickle. The PS2 has a huge library, at the very least. Also, although I do like my Vita, I would really love to see PS1 classic support for it, along with some things someone else mentioned above.

  • Meh no new ps1 or ps2 classics.

  • Ghost recon:Future soldier beta servers not up yet? its not working

    • The announcement post mentioned this but the beta does not start until the 19th of this month. Sounds like you’ve downloaded it so just hang tight until the 19th!

  • @twistedvivid I think killzone will come in HD. But still alot of ps2 classics won’t. They should put the original versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3 because I heard teh HD ones sucks.

  • If you’re a Plus subscriber, you’ll be able to snag this bundle for a limited time discount at $20.99!

    ^that’s not a stab at early adopters at all…..

    • Even with the Plus discount, the FHC was the overall better deal. $25 for $65+ worth of content. Early adopters got first access at a great price.

  • Disgaea 3: Absence Of Detention ($39.99)
    ^ what’s up with the full release price for the digital version BTW. I thought you guys were taking the good route with the 10% ish discount for digital Vita titles. Don’t tell me this has been reverted. Bad idea.

  • read the post well then @Destiny89

  • People must understand there are many many people who will not be satified with updates to the store while many others are so if you dont like something simply check back the following week WTF, grown a$$ people acting like fools on here.

    its an ok update but i got a free app for my vita and many missions to replay, tweets to tweet and fb posts to post via my vita as im sure all ya do to so relax and let the system mature… because a new app gets announced does no mean devs arent making games ok! damn!

  • are you joking… i expect disgaea 3 price to be $35.99, but what’s this $39.99, better grab the physical copy pal..

  • hey Morgan or REY, u guys should allow users to use paypal to buy content to buy psn content. i live in the Bahamas so credit cards wont work unless in the u.s. microsoft has this feature why wont u also try this.

  • ROFL!!! Uncharted DLC and Modes pack for $30??? Glad im a FHC member for $25. It is better for those who arn’t members though.

  • CANNOT wait to play the Future Soldier beta, shame it’s still 2 days away.

    Also, what about Skype and recording with the Vita?!!

  • @ #7 polo155

    What about people like me who have been waiting YEARS for psp games to be on the Psn? or how much longer do we have to wait to get an update that we like? We understand not everyone will like an update, but telling us to wait next week isnt really solving the problem when some people have been waiting years to get a good update from this PSN to have games they like.

  • Can’t wait for Call of Duty, assassins creed, and Final Fantasy 10 for Vita and PS3! Also can’t wait for Little Big Planet for Vita! Any release dates or info about those 4 games for Vita?

  • You forgot:

    “Please Don’t Leave Me” – Pink

    for the Rock Band dlc.

  • the poorly timed warnings for maintenance, the dl speeds, the logouts if i’m not in a multiplayer game.. it’s free, so i don’t complain. but i finally have to agree w/some people here who constantly nag about this FREE network. i get why ps plus members get their bonuses, i’m a former member myself. what i don’t get, is why there’s a beta & 4 game trials for plus, but there are absolutely no demos this week for regular members, i don’t get why the game releases the past few months have been complete $#!*. to look at the EU or Japan store compared to North Am…it’s shameful. i feel that plus is taking away from non plus, i’ve been a part of the psn for years, enjoyed plus, and was fine letting it go for awhile. but i feel those of us who aren’t plus are being neglected as a whole. while plus members get more than they deserve. i love sony, love my ps3, but i’ll not be strong-armed back into buying plus. this what it feels like y’all are doing, and it’s wrong for every long-time & new members to the psn. please, put us on par w/the other country’s psn stores, stop bending over for plus, and give us longtime members a store selection worth our time. thank you.

  • Wow what a pathetic update.. This update is for the vita and the plus members.. Both of which are not worth our money or time buying…

    And the new store categories are stupid, and make it harder to find anything…

  • Meh, it’s OK I suppose, but I’m more interested in knowing when that new Zen Pinball 2 update is coming out for ps3 (and the accompanying vita cross-play version). Any update on that?

  • Hey whats with StarDrone trying to get me to buy the skip a level DLC every time I die? This is uncalled for! I gave yous guys $4 for a game I already own and could have just played on my PS3. Is this how you thank your fans? If you really need the dollar you should have just included the feature and made the game $5. I would expect this in a free game, but I paid for this! Take this outta my game please!

  • Most you people disgust me. You guys are embarrassing. Do you really think Apps would effect games being released for Vita? Are you really that unintelligent, are you 10? I want to hear more about Vita games and PSOne support so I can play Final Fantasy, Crono, and Wild Arms 2 on it but does that have anything to do with the ability to have apps? NO. The more apps the better, though Skype should have released long before these.
    I just want the latest flash, a Youtube App, a Crackle App etc.
    Info on LittleBigPlanet (Vita) and a actual name like LittleBigPlanet Touch or something (I don’t like touch though just a example)
    Info on Final Fantasy X HD for Vita and ps3 like a gameplay trailer
    Info on the release of Final Fantasy Type-0 (I heard something about it being utilized for Vita back at about jap release and now it seems it may just be entirely released on Vita which would be better, but this is to long without info on a game thats out in japan and annouced like 5 years ago or something).
    Persona 4 The Golden NA release date.
    just need more info and stuff for Vita games. We need RPG’s on the go (better on the go then on consoles in my opinion)
    Decent update though

  • @75 itofuman… yea i know what u mean dude but in cases like that alot of licenses has expired and things like that..

  • can we get trine 2 for free just like europe?

    They have shank 2, shift 2 and trine 2 so its not a matter of dif freebies for dif regions.


    to anyone who is buying/playing motorstorm r.c., there is a save bug/issue..
    many (myself included) have lost all medals and progress w/ the devs telling us to “just deal w/ it”

    well maybe they should have shown such a nasty attitude before we gave them our cash.
    its on many blogs including euro psn, just google lost medals/progress motorstorm r.c.

    just dont want anyone to have to go through the same headache , some do not encounter probs, many do.

  • Please somehow get Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance ported to the PS Vita.

    It would not only sell like crazy, but it would help sell more Vitas.

    Kingdom Hearts belongs on playstation!!

  • Haven’t turned the old girl on in a month this console generation is dead hopefully Sony hangs on long enough for Naughty Dog to launch The Last of Us.

  • Why do so many of you complain? I mean seriously can just one of you at least give me a legit answer…

  • @GoPens35…did you really just say that…

  • Peeps dont spend the money nobodys breakin ur controller!

  • I feel that this Blog is here for us to not just praise Sony for what they are doing, but to also tell them of our concerns and what we want so that they can know and make it happen.

    While I agree that some peoples complaining can get a little out of hand, which is uncalled for, a lot of the others help Sony hear what their fans want to see for the future of Playstation.

    With that being said, I love my PS3 and PS Vita, but they could be improved upon. They are not perfect.

    • This is the right mindset. PS3 and PS Vita are freaking awesome products. But there’s always room for improvement, so while there may not be anything in the immediate timeframe we can do to address critiques, we do want to hear what people are saying so we can help bring the experiences that they want to PlayStation.

  • How about having PS+ benefits for PSVITA too?? :D

  • I would love to purchase NHL 12, but not for $59.99 when the playoffs have already started. If it was $29.99 I’d be playing it right now. I’m curious who sets the price for full digital games, with prices always too high for most people’s liking I’m guessing the publishers have a heavy hand in it even though there’s no distribution to speak of it’s still $59.99.

  • great

  • wasnt saints row 3 full game trial suppose to drop today?

  • please please please add vita support for valkyria chronicles 2!

  • Hi all ! Are we ( PS+ users) getting something extra next month now that qore its over?

  • good

  • @madhukrishna9999

    Well is it “GREAT” or is it “GOOD”

    make up your mind. lol
