Inflammable means flammable? What a country.

I didnt bother to read what everyone was discusing since I dont care. LOL

Don't worry, Chinese economy report just came out. They will be invading soon and we will get a new one.

Yeah and I just read about the way the country prepares for their college entrance exam. Holy crap we are in trouble.

Diet soda is the worst.

Wait. So, a free Xbox for college students isn't productive? I mean... At least they have to buy a computer to get it and computer sounds smart.

I have to highly recommend grabbing the Kane & Lynch character pack for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, as it goes a bit further than just being a new set of skins. They change the cutscenes a bit and have unique dialog for Kane & Lynch with them cursing up a storm at times. The set-up is also great.

I didn't even know (or more likely forgot) that even existed. Will have to pick it up. This is easily one of the best PSN games imo. Very fun couch co-op.

Well now that I am a Plus member I realize my HD is WAY too small. I have one of the original 60 GB Backward compatible version. Time to look for a cheap upgrade. Any suggestions?

Also:

Q: I'm interested in PlayStation Plus. Do I keep the games that are taken down from the PS+ section of the PS Store?
A: Yes, you can keep playing those games for the length of your subscription. There's no need to rush yourself to beat those games within the month unless you're just enjoying it that much.

So as long as I have downloaded Infamous 2 to my HD I can play it for free for the next year? Sorry for the noob questions. Just trying to understand how this works.

As long as you're still a PS+ subscriber, you'll be able to play it whenever. From what I understand, (according to another CAG and a couple folks on other sites) you also can still play them even if you lapse in your subscription but renew it later. Essentially, you can play them at any given time if you're actively subscribed. =P

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

Yep, the key is to make sure you remember to go to the PS Store and "purchase" the game(s) before they stop being "free." That way, you'll have them in your download/transaction history for the price you "paid" and you don't have to download them until you're ready.

I hope that made sense.

You don't have to have it downloaded to your HD. As long as you've "bought" the game off the PS Store, and it's in your download history, you'll always have access to it as long as you're a PS+ member.

and to add a little to this. If you let your subscription expire, you'll be able to get all the games back if you renew.

Anybody who is looking to upgrade their PS3 HDD should check any 2.5" external drives they may have. If they are a little older, chances are they will have the SATA to USB adapter inside and you can use those in your PS3. I cracked open a Seagate 500GB I had and installed it in my PS3. Upgrading the PS3 HDD isn't hard, but it is time consuming, especially if you already have a lot on your existing HDD.

No it doesn't? My brother and I have separate accounts on my PS3 and we each have to fund our wallets separately. Same for any other accounts on the PS3.


Do you have two master accounts or one master and one sub-account? If all of the accounts are master accounts you cannot use the funds accross them. I do not fund my sub-account and have been able to make purchases off that account using funds from the wallet of my master account.

I did the same thing (not going in and buying everything free) during part of the free 3 months. Didn't miss out on that much, but considering it takes all of 30 seconds to go into the store, add to cart, and check out, I feel a little stupid too that I missed anything at all.

You should not need to fund a separate account, using a sub-account pulls funds directly from the main account.

But that's the thing. I want to own the game and not only the 'free' PS+ version, since unless there's an insane sale($15 oopsie at Target again) I don't plan on re-upping PS+ on or before June 19th when my 4 months worth of free trial codes run out.

I picked up a 320 GB Western Digital drive at Best Buy today for $60. Made the swap in less than 10 minutes. Of course, it took 3 1/2 hours to transfer about 90gb of data to a USB drive first, and another 3 1/2 hours to move it back when I was done.
No big deal considering the amount of free games Sony is dealing out this month, and promises to continue dealing out in the months ahead.

Some say completing the sixty minute trial on the Playstation Europe blog makes it then work. Anybody run into that problem? Silly me I deleted the damn thing without trying it first.

You're the 3rd person, in this thread, who've mentioned that happening with a game. I wonder what that's all about?

Too bad you gotta redownload it!:hot: Lol! Oh well, it's free!

I saw the 30min timer, then 15 min, but I kept playing Ratchet until it cut me off, then saw the bag was blue instead of red. Re- 'purchased' it and it played through! I think I'm close to beating the game!

I'd prefer to get the $.60 ones from Wally World(if they sell them around here) and get the $10 cards for around $3 each.;)

So far no, but I hear Comcast is switching to charging for going over the limit. I use over 400-600GBs a month and the data cap is 250. :bouncy:

Might switch to FiOS because of no data cap.

I'm so disappointed that Sony separates their downloadable retail games from the disc games in regards to saves. I have saves of all the new free titles from the discs so now the digital versions are almost worthless to me. What a bizarre decision by Sony.

As far as I know the non-Sony full titles don't have this same issue as they don't have the (Digital) title tag like the Sony titles. I have yet to test this yet, though. Has anyone else?

I had that exact problem. Game loaded and started fine but I saw it was the trial. Stopped game and when the hour ran out (and I wasn't playing at the time) I tried to restart the game and got message that the download was corrupted and was told to delete and re-install. In process of downloading now.

By the way, for PS+ people that have a bunch of new games to play, you should check out the DLC to grab the freebies that some of them offer.

Choplifter HD - Zombie! Zombie! Zombie! Level Pack - Free
Just Cause 2 - Chaos Parachute - Free
Just Cause 2 - Tuk Tuk Boom Boom - Free
Just Cause 2 - Chevalier Ice Breaker - Free
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - Character Pack 1 - Free
LittleBigPlanet - Community Costume Winner - Free
LittleBigPlanet - Kabuki Actor Costume - Free
LittleBigPlanet - Sack-Eating Plant Costume - Free
LittleBigPlanet - Sack in the Box Costume - Free
Saints Row 2 - The Unkut Pack - Free

And if you were proactive before, there were numerous free holiday costumes for LBP 1 and 2 that you may have in your download history to redownload. The second challenge pack for Lara Croft was also free at launch, so if you thought ahead, you should download it to go with your game.


Thanks for the list Frisky! :applause:
