WRONG. Easiest Plat is Terminator Salvation and Hanna Montana. FreakyZeaky has those hoephies.

I platinumed Terminator Salvation. I felt a bit dirty afterwards and the mark will never be removed from my trophy list. I doubt I'll ever play another game strictly for the purpose of getting a platinum again.

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

Annnnnnd they said to "stay tuned" last week when people complained...and the week before that...so on and so forth. Seems like a ponzi scheme of "delight". People just need to change their outlook on the service. If you're looking to get a constant influx of top tier games, you'll probably be disappointed. It's nice, however, that they offer things people might not have been inclined to try.

That said, they did good w/ the Walking Dead offer. I'm not even a fan of the Telltale format, but this game is pure awesomeness. I'll be buying the remaining episodes. Definitely recommend it to those on the fence.

I have Bloodrayne and Outland on 360, I enjoyed them both quite a bit. I don't think I'll replay them on PSN, but they're both good games for those that haven't experienced them before.

Bloodrayne isn't all that hard, it has a couple super-annoying platforming sections, but the actual combat is pretty fluid and simple to get down. Just get in the habit of sucking a lot of blood and you'll be fine.

I definitely don't want retail games either. Most of them eventually go down to as low as $5-10, and all the games people are clamoring for - Deus Ex, Dead Space 2, and Darksiders - have been that cheap frequently in the past. The only retail game I'd look forward to is Motorstorm Apocalypse.

I think all the EU games will be added here eventually, which are Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and the previously mentioned titles.

I think part of the problem is that Sony wanted to make a big splash at E3, and the cost was some lesser titles in the following couple of months.

Personally, tho, I've barely touched my PS3 in the past few months.

I think it's hilarious when people on the PS Blog complain about getting older PSN games but then clamor for these old retail games that are way popular. Furthermore, like you've said, these games have been extremely cheap many times in the past. To me, BloodRayne is worth more than a downloadable Dead Space 2.

The only EU game that made me jealous was Stranger's Wrath.

Count me in on taking PSN games over retail. There were a few games I didn't have after the E3 announcement. I feel if Sony gives out retail games there is a good chance I have it if I had a interest in it.

When Sony offers games I already purchased I don't get mad. Just keep positive I will get something I haven't played yet. I love PS+ and will continue to support it.

I bet we will get Strangers Wrath eventually.

For the most part I'd rather have PSN games rather than retail games. I just wish the games were a little bit newer (props on Walking Dead, but anything older than 6-9 months means the game has probably been on sale already and I probably already own it, as is the case with Bloodrayne and Outland) But oh well, it's only fair for them to include a nice mix of slightly older and newer releases.

Also, I'd like to see a few more PS exclusives in the coming months.

Yeah, with how fast games drop nowadays, I'm buying retail games way more often than I'm buying PSN games.

True, I almost bought BloodRayne when it was on sale, but now I'm glad I didn't. I did buy Outland but I already 100%ed it so I don't care that it's free now.

The PS+ schedule for the next two weeks:

The first two episodes of Telltale’s The Walking Dead joined the Instant Game Collection last week, and today, we’re announcing even more content coming to Plus! We’re excited to welcome PSN Games Outland and Bloodrayne: Betrayal to the PlayStation Plus family. Read on to learn more about these games and other great content coming exclusively for Plus members.

August 14th PlayStation Plus Update

Outland

Free for PlayStation Plus Members


This innovative PSN Game blended open world 2D action color-based puzzle platforming to deliver an experience like none other. Heralded by critics, we’re happy to bring Outland to Plus members. Make sure you check out the co-op challenges scattered throughout the game’s world to get the most from Outland’s breathtaking world.

Bloodrayne: Betrayal

Free for PlayStation Plus Members


With this year’s PSN PLAY in full swing, we thought we’d revisit one of last year’s PSN PLAY titles to deliver free to Plus members. Sporting incredibly slick animation and amazingly detailed characters, monsters, and environments in luscious (LUSCIOUS) high resolution, this is a game that many might have missed, and now have no excuse not to check it out.

Papo & Yo

20% discount for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $14.99, PS Plus Price: $11.99)


We’re always looking to get members the best deals on new releases,so we’re making the anticipated PSN Game Papo & Yo that much easier to snag when it drops on 8/14. It’s an amazing world crafted by the team at Minority. Follow a young boy named Quico and his best friend Monster through the surreal favelas of his homeland. It’s a dangerous journey through a constantly changing world, and you get an exclusive price break on the new adventure. Check out all the great features on Papo & Yo and pick up the game this week!

August 21st PlayStation Plus Update

Dust 514

Closed Beta Access and 50% off Mercenary Pack Add-On


Remember that Beta I talked about earlier? I know, it was a bit in the making but we’re happy to welcome our friends from the Dust 514 team into Plus with exclusive access for the closed beta. Dust 514 is the free to play first person shooter that may change the face of how we battle online in games. Help test the first live direct connection to the extremely popular EVE Online MMO as players on the main server in DUST 514 and EVE Online can chat in real time and send in-game mail between games. It’s a first in gaming, it’s free to play when it releases later this fall, and exclusive access is coming to Plus members on 8/21. You’ll have until September 4th to jump in the Beta. Read more about the features available in this Beta in a post from Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer on Dust 514.

We’re also sporting a 50% discount on the Mercenary Pack DLC for Dust 514 which gives access to in-game currency to spend in game, skill boosts, and exclusive gear. Now I know what you’re thinking: this is a beta, how can I buy Add-Ons if it’s in beta? Good question! Any Add-Ons that are purchased with Dust 514 while the game is in Beta will be carried over when the game releases later this fall. So buy with confidence! There’s a ton of great Dust 514 blog posts; read up on the game and jump in the Beta.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive

20% discount for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $14.99, PS Plus Price: $11.99)


It’s the return of the king. The first editions of Counter Strike back in the day paved the way for what online shooters are today. Now Valve is partnering with PlayStation to deliver this new release 20% off when it becomes available for download on 8/21. The final title of the PSN PLAY promotion, make sure you’ve picked up as many titles from PLAY as possible so you can get the most amount of PlayStation Store credit back on September 7th.

Natsume Sale

50% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Prices: $14.99, PS Plus Price: $7.50)


Natsume fans! Got a PSP? You’re in luck. 4 of Natsume’s best titles including some of the best from the Harvest Moon series are going on a nice 50% off sale. Adventures To Go!, Harvest Moon: Boy & Girl, Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon , Reel Fishing: The Great Outdoors, and Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley are all part of the sale.

Watch the PlayStation Store Updates for more news on additional Plus deals. Stay tuned for our next update scheduled for August 27th, and as always, let us know your thoughts in the comments.


And as a reminder, these games are being delisted with tomorrow's update, so get them now if you are interested:

PS1 Classics
Kyuiin - $5.99
Magical Drop F - $5.99

You either need to stay a PS+ member or buy the first episode if you let your sub lapse, which would make it a $20 game in that case.

Posted 13 August 2012 - 08:46 PM

i was just gonna say how subjective an easy plat is. i always read about easy plats, and i can't deny i have plats for all games listed, but the easiest plats were the games that you just love to play and can't put down. i was obsesssed with cod world at war and got 100% on the main game and all 3 zombie packs, but it is listed as one of the hardest plats often. same with other games of course, i dont have the demon souls plat, but from those that have it they don't talk about how difficult the game was, cuz they obviously enjoyed it so much. sure bttf was an easy follow the dots plat, but when i was playing it a second time on disk it was such a drag that it took more 'energy' than a hard game. idk peace all!


When it comes to platinuming games I always play ones I know I will enjoy, and not what's just an easy way to get trophies or boost my platinums. I also enjoy doing the harder ones, since they stand out more and enjoy the challenges.

Speaking of hard and challenging... just managed to beat Zico on WipEout. Time to beat is 30.82 seconds... finally got a good 30.80 and hearing that trophy pop was indeed satisfying!! SO HAPPY! :bouncy:

This is very true. Looking at releases for tomorrow, Darksiders II will almost certainly be 66%-75% off faster than Papo & Yo will be 50% off.

Heh, I think the only free game I've touched from my Target price mistake is The Simpsons. And it's not because I already own them either, since 99% of them I don't.


I don't understand what games you actually enjoy playing...

Isn't it called "Papo y Yo"? "Papo and Yo" sounds kinda stupid to me, "Papo y Yo" rolls off the tongue.

I think it's Portuguese because the game takes place in Brazil, but I agree that the ampersand should probably be pronounced that way out loud. Of course according to Google Translate the Portuguese word for and is e, although it has the same (or very similar) sound as y in Spanish, so Papo y Yo isn't quite right either.

This became far more complicated than I anticipated when I started the comment. I'm going to stick to & when I write it out. :)
