  • Psychonauts lol, I was digging around in my room and from the preorder item that Gamestop/EB Games give you for preordering that game. It was a pack of playing cards.

  • Question: Why does everyone get all excited about digital releases of games? Not enough hard drive space on the PS3 to make this a truly viable way to buy games.

  • @102 you can upgrade the HDD.

  • I agree with Dragon_Night but I also think all games should be downloadable….. ALL

  • Oh yeah :D excited for the PS Vita 1.8 Update :)

  • I love it when they significantly drop the price of something after you just buy.

  • Tomorrow cant come quick enough, def. looking forward to playing with the cross control for lbp 2!!!!!!!!

  • Sweet PSN Update!

  • Why dont you guys make ps1 and ps2 game trophies i would buy them if you guys did

  • already have all the GoW games but still i’m getting the GoW saga again :) and journey collector’s edition <3

  • Any word on when the sly demo comes to PSN?

  • @102, when you’re done with them you simply delete them.

  • Why not complete the collection and bring MGS 4 to PSN store?Come on guys,you know that there are thounsands of MGS fans out there willing to buy the digital version of the game .

  • will dark souls dlc also come out this week?

  • @97 Nope. Its a code you get with the disc, just wait for it to show up on PSN.

  • @108 Not worth the trouble. Besides, this wasn’t done for Xbox Originals either.

    @102 Buying the Ratchet & Clank Collection gets you an early access to the demo. Demo might show up on PSN in coming months.

  • I see you want the Sly 4 demo now, but you’ll have to wait.
    However, you could do “Release the Sly 4 demo now” thread and submit images. Be creative.

  • @102 yeah, just upgrade your HDD it’s easy. i have 2 500 GB ps3s at my house one original phat and a slim

  • Tom Clancy’s EndWar

  • I heard Sony of Japan is preventing DLC from WKC2 to be released on the West. I hope it’s not true because it was Sony’s fault the 1rst game failed. Instead of advertize it more they let it die. Now please stop being a roadblock and let D3 Publisher and Level-5 give us the DLC and the patch with Avatar Story and the GR50 rank.

  • I wish they would make burnout 3 takedown available for download that was my favorite burnout of the series and I hope they drop the prices on the ps vita memory cards because the thing is awesome but I can’t do anything with it because I don’t have any memory I have one games thats it. It’s a hundred dollars for a 32gb card that’s freaking crazy I’m almost tempted to trade it in because I cant do anything with it. Please sony make these things available.

  • why is the ratchet and clank collection three seperate games on the psn store, for a total of $45 but an disc its all 3 and only $30? thats not very cool…

  • Definitely picking up The Infamous Collection. I’ve been thinking of playing that game for the longest time. Don’t know why I haven’t it must have slipped my mind with all these awesome new games coming out.
