  • Good update. Nothing awesome, but still good.

    @PrimeroIncognito All is Ryumoau doing is embarrassing himself. Soon, he will have no friends.

    I so completely agree with you on that.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    @ Tjoeb123

    Oh well! Sucks to be him! Funny, I do remember him crying about the supposed horrible value of digital games before, and now suddenly he’s always asking for them. Well anyway, why don’t you tell the dumb bastard that if he stopped wasting hundreds of dollars on avatars every week, he’d have plenty of money to get his Blu-Ray drive fixed, or even buy a new PS3. Oh, that’s right, he won’t listen to anyone, not even you.

    Because right after you tell me about his Blu-Ray drive, you had to explain something to him that you said you had told him before already. Did you catch that? Are you not irritated yet? Do you not see how many other people also despise his presence here?

    Anyway, my downloads are complete. Have fun.

  • Oh I almost forgot Kof 96 neogeostation version! This psp game is sold for Vita in Japanese and Hk stores too! It’s really time for Sony to hear us about missing psp games for Vita! An answer would be really appreciated, thanx…

  • with kingdom hearts 1.5 releasing in september ,can you guys PLEASE put some avatars. i cant believe theres no kingdom hearts avatars please respond

  • and Defiance is 9.99 already?! … im sure it’ll be free to play soon enough

  • Where’s Crash and Spyro on Vita?

  • PrimeroIncognito

    Tjoeb123 on July 30th, 2013 at 3:18 pm said: “You certainly remind me of plenty of people who jumped all over someone who was asking a legitimate question on this week’s The Drop”

    I was on that post, and I didn’t jump all over him.

    I was only trying to reason with him. Believe it or not, I actually like neuropunk.

    He’s no Ryumoau, that’s for sure.

  • What about Moto GP for Vita???

  • @46, I definitely agree with you. Every week, I read comments about how what Europe gets is so much better than what we get. I don’t worry about it. Thanks to Plus, I’ve discovered many great games that I probably never would have even tried out otherwise. Honestly, if you’re so preoccupied with what Europe gets, move to Europe and post about how great it is in their blog. That way the rest of us don’t have to read about how great it is over there but how much it sucks here.

  • That drop for defiance is freaking huge. What’s up with that?

  • Chill out on the PSN team. I’m sure they would love to have Tales of Xillia on the store Day 1, sadly it’s a decision that Bandai/Namco gets to make. Go petition them. I also have my CE paid off at GameStop though, so whatever. =P

    DragonsCrown will be available Day 1 digital for PSVita as always. I suspect the PS3 version will be as well (Cross-buy maybe?), if not, it can’t be far behind.

    Thanks NISA for the fixed avatars! And Thank you PSN team for your services as always. :D

  • seeing that defiance price drop makes me regret pre-ordering the ultimate edition.

  • @Nevi901 (Sigh) Even after that topic, he still wants his Crash and Spyro. He will never get his brain replaced.

    @PrimeroIncognito neuropunk’s cool. At least has he reasons why sorting digital games alphabetically is important. I didn’t understand at first, but he made good valid points. So I was the wrong one here and now I believe him.

  • @ Kristine, I just saw the comment you gave #37 about the playstation store. That actually made my similar problem worse, noe it can’t even start up the store which is the only problem my console has. it is connected to the PSN and everything else works. the store is just flawed and respectfully the very least Sony can do is admit it.

  • what is wrong with Fatal Frame 2 before? I never touched it, i was busy trying to beat the first game, having trouble (Forgetting some japanese logic too @_@)

  • Well my Vita is frozen again because you guys STILL have not fixed the issue of the PS Store freezing when downloading a game from it. Are you planning on ever fixing the problem? Or is that part of the strategy of Sony not supporting its own handheld?

  • @angelsoldier thanks for answering… that’s also what i’m thinking, but i don’t remember seeing it anywhere it would be cross-buy, if they said something i can’t remember right now

  • @gamerzw/e: Oh, you again. What did we talk about condescension? You’re too quick to forget. So glad you’re getting mad at my posts. Keep enjoying them, cuz I’ll be posting until those games get released :D

  • I’m wondering what is the difference between the Defiance sale bundles other then the price. Does anyone know?

  • Where is Crash and Spyro in the Vita store?

    I know where they are, THEY ARE IN HELL WHERE THEY BELONG!

  • That Defiance drop is super interesting…

  • @blakseed

    the difference is the amount of days for the boosts. one of them is 7 days and the other is 30 days. I dont know what other items come with it, but I think the 30 day boost gives you a few more in game equipment.

  • Mando you have to hard reset it when that happens! mine would freeze but i could still turn it off and back on! play with the menus man

  • who cares about psone games on vita? im more concerned about ps4 remote play features considering the lack of ps3 remote play, which actually ruined a brand new ultra slim model i bought within 3 days of opening it (at least that’s what the “knowledgeable” gamestop employee told me then hassled me about an exchange) i think theres only 5-6 ps3 games that supported it and only 1 (pixeljunk shooter 2) that fully worked with dual analogy sticks. no ps store, no ps home, no play memories studio. you cant even watch the the content you pay for from the video store through remote play. i guess im confused on what remote is actually intended for because its not much.

  • @76 I think its too taxing for the PS3 to do full remote play which is why its so limited. Sony still promises the PS4 will do it though, for now. . .

  • Was planning on picking up that max payne 3, and now seeing the price of defiance……..

  • @Nevi901 Oh, I ain’t mad. PrimeroIncognito is the one mad at you. He’s sick of you trying to demand Sony and not asking nicely. I’m just doing it on his behalf.

  • Can I buy a PS4 on pan???

    Also defiance for only $10??? Sweet!

  • @53 (PrimerIncognito)

    Actually, it was him who told me that he was going to use that money towards his PS4 rather than to fix his PS3’s BD drive. There is NOTHING wrong with that. Nothing on the internet fazes me. He’s just trying to make an opinion and you all jump all over him. Yet I sometimes make the same opinions as him and nobody jumps on me?

    I seriously don’t get you people (the same people who I see jump all over Ryumoau every week). I’m trying to defend him, and you jump all over me too?

    I wasn’t aiming at you specifically (in fact, I didn’t even see you in that post at all).


    Thanks man. Much apperciated.

  • DEFIANCE BLOWS, its a syfy channel quality game for a syfy channel quality show. shoulda been $30 on day one in my opinion

  • I’m really excited to pick up Max Payne 3 Ultimate Edition and Defiance this week. PS+ was easily the best decision I have ever made. Next paycheck I’m thinking of picking up a Vita, makes sense with PS+ usually having something in the IGC for it. I just wish I had downloaded some titles when i first got PS+, missed a few, oh well, lesson learned.

  • Not a week for purchases.

    Max Payne 3, although appearing quite well graphically and nice gameplay, even inclyding multiplayer, is not quite the persona I want my childen emulating.
    The intro alone depicting him constantly drinking and smoking was enough to dissuade me.

    Thought about it long and hard, but am still pleased that even though Dues Ex came free to PS Plus that I still bought it on sale.

    And since I bought Stealth Inc.,Dokuro is not worth using my year resubscription for.

    Better Luck Next Week.

  • @65 (Venom1976)

    Then do what I do (every single time): Get on a PC and go to the web Store. Buy your stuff there. Then on your PS3, go to PSN>Account Management>Transaction Management>Download List. It’ll boot into the old style PS Store so you can download your content without issue.

    On the PS Vita, though….yeah. That “Preparing to download….” hanging issue needs to come to an end when the upcoming security patch happens. Happened to me when I first tried to download Dokuro earlier today.

  • @86
    i coulda swore vita was “supposed” to get an updated store around the time ps3 store got its most recent upgrade, but apparently independent cell phone style junk compatibility trumps higher performance for its native applications.

  • I’d really like to see a wishlist feature added to the PS Store, which could be viewable on PS3, Vita, and the web store. It would make it so much easier to keep track of games and DLC I want.

    It would also allow me to keep track of prices for the stuff I want, and easily jump on a great deal when I see it, rather than having to scan the Blog posts and manually search.

  • Oh, and as usual, PLEASE add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store!

  • OMG, Fatal Frame II, are you guys planning on releasing all Fatal Frames games for PS2?

  • As someone who gladly paid full price for Dokuro the day it launched, I can happily give it my highest recommendation to fellow Vita gamers. It’s a wonderful game.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    @ Tjoeb123

    Did he also tell you that since he decided to not repair or replace his Blu-Ray drive that he was now going to demand digital releases of every single game he wants, and if he doesn’t get it, that he’s going to smear the people at Sony or the game’s development team as being incompetent, when it really all may just come down to numbers-based decisions? Do you feel comfortable keeping around a simpleton like him who constantly has his head in the sand and actually refuses to come out and see the light?

    AND the reason no one jumps on other people for saying the same things he says is because of THE WAY it’s being said. How are you not realizing this? How have you not noticed his pattern of going out of his way to be purposely obnoxious? A perfect example is right over on the Journey/Unfinished Swan post where he made the first (and absolutely unnecessary) comment.

    I think you’re conveniently ignoring the crap he does just because you had already added him to your friends’ list and maybe you don’t feel comfortable deleting people…

  • Can you add some more details to the Hot Shots DLC Clubs please. “Increased power, but decreased control” isn’t enough information to decide if I should spend the money or not.

    How about an in game image of the stat graph that you get in game? Or even better have a “Change room” or sorts in the game where you can see what your stat rollout would be with various level 5 club combinations before you decide which ones you want to purchase.

  • Tjoeb123, he is obviously panicking over the idea of not being able to pre-order the game. If it is that much of a concern to him (and since he clearly thinks the EU team does a better job) the benefits would far outweigh the miniscule amount of work required to create a EU account. I’ve got several friends that have done it, it really isn’t complex. Which is the issue.

    Even if for whatever reason he could not create an EU account, he still has the option of pre-ordering the disc. The fact he wishes to gameshare isn’t enough of a reason for Sony to bother worrying about him.

  • Should have a price change on Eye of Judgement DLC and more PSP/PSV material. Otherwise, okay update.

  • @PrimerIncognito

    He is my friend. That will not change no matter what you say. That will not change no matter what he posts in the comments or what you think of him.

    And it wasn’t just recently or anything. He’s been on my list since around the time Ni no Kuni came out.

    He should be thankful (even though he doesn’t read the comments besides his and Sony’s, and I pass them on to him anyway) that I’m not like the rest of you. I’m a nice person and I find it hard to “hate” anything (be it games, people, or whatever). Does that mean everything is super-perfect in my little world? Nope.

    I REALLY wish we didn’t have to have this conversation every week.

  • WILL we ever see more Neo-Geo Station games???

    It’s been a Featured PSN game for years now and there hasn’t even been a new game released for it in two years!! :(

  • In fact, that is my final statement on the matter.

    ANYWAYS. That Defiance sale sure looks interesting…

  • Who do I have to talk to about making Valkyria Chronoicles 2 accessable for the vita? Come on I love the vita but that was one of the few games that I would buy for the psp and can’t play.

  • Wish the Max Payne DLC was offered separately for those of us who already have the game.
