It's cool. I know where you're coming from, but at the same time I am offering a different opinion. Plenty of people thought the original game was hard, but I had no issues beating the US version in 1 sitting and getting to cycle 2 level 1-1 with 99 lives. Due to this, I wrote them in order of difficulty based off my experience. Like 9 was a JOKE, me and a friend got all the mural pieces on our first run and beat it with 49 lives remaining. With this in mind I also mentioned I uploaded videos of each area, because I strongly believe the title deserves more attention. You can find them all (EX 1 - 9) on my Youtube, with 5 - 10 minutes each.


Can you post a link to the video of these levels please? My youtube search was fruitless.

I was also wondering how $40 for Max Payne 3 would be a fantastic deal. Hell, I don't even think $30 would be a fantastic deal.


I wouldn't even buy it for $20, cuz the disc version will be lower than that soon enough and have resale value.

I'm excited for Double Dragon, I don't think it will be all that good, but at least it's something new.

Also, just noticed that JSRF is getting a 10% discount. Better than nothing I guess, but someone (I think in the XBL thread) mentioned that all the previous Dreamcast re-releases have come with avatar awards on Xbox, so assuming this one does, I'll probably get it over there instead.

EDIT: Also just noticed that the preview is only for this week, Sept. 11. Wonder if they're gonna start posting the PS+ updates weekly now...

I don't think PS3 games have ever come with any type of avatar award. The only thing I've seen is themes from FF13.

Yeah, sorry, I just meant that I'll be getting it on Xbox because I like those avatar award things. A couple games I've played on PS3 have unlocked items in Home...but that's it.

From what I understand, some PS3 & PSN games have unlockable clothing for your character for Home, similar to Avatar Awards for the 360.

As for themes, the only one that comes to mind is FF13 & 13-2.

Speaking of themes, is it just me, or has it been a while since the last time there was a new free theme added on PS+?

Though we knew most of it ahead of time, here's what will be coming to PS+ for this week:

We’ve got a lot cooking for PlayStation Plus members this week with Double Dragon Neon and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World joining the Instant Game Collection, among other great perks. Read on to learn more!

September 11th PlayStation Plus Update

Double Dragon Neon

Free for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: Free)


After 25 years, the original beat ‘em up is bringing pure over-the-top baditude to PSN, and it’s free for PlayStation Plus members on its first day of release! In Double Dragon Neon, Billy and Jimmy are kicking butts and taking names as they search for their girlfriend Marian (she seems to have a habit of getting kidnapped). This time, her disappearance is at the hands of the supernatural scourge, Skullmageddon! Face off against a gaggle of goons, some familiar (Williams, Linda, and Abobo, of course!) and some that are absolutely out of this world.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game

Free for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: Free)


This adaptation captures all the fun and style of the critically acclaimed Scott Pilgrim comics, and the humor of the revered movie, and distills it into a retro-influenced side scrolling beat em’ up, complete with 4-player co-op. With awesome 16-bit animation by world-famous pixel artist Paul Robertson, and a hyper-active soundtrack from chiptune heroes Anamanaguchi, it’s hard not to love Scott Pilgrim, and now you can play it as part of the Instant Game Collection.

Jet Set Radio

Exclusive Early Access for PlayStation Plus Members and 10% off (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $8.99)


SEGA’s new release of the classic Dreamcast title is hitting PlayStation Plus users first! Get it a week before anyone else, and play all the levels while listening to those classic JSR phat beatz (complete with the original world-wide soundtrack) that made this title a true original. This time, of course, you get it with full Trophy support, sharp HD visuals, and you’ll be the first to play it on current-gen consoles.

Max Payne 3 PS3 Full Game and Bundle

33% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Game – Regular Price: $59.99, PS Plus Price: $40.49; Bundle: Regular Price: $67.49, PS Plus Price: $60.74)


Rockstar’s gritty, action packed noir thriller Max Payne 3 arrived to critical acclaim earlier this year. If you haven’t had a chance to play it yet, now may be the perfect time. It arrives on PSN with this week’s update as a PS3 Full Game, and while there will be a 25% discount for all PSN members on the game, Plus members can grab it for an even better deal at 33% off — just $40.49. You can also buy the bundle complete with the Rockstar Pass, a value of $89.98, for $60.74.

That’s it for now, check back with us next week when we’ll have more PlayStation Plus news to share! In the meantime, leave your comments and thoughts on Plus below, or join the conversation on the PlayStation Forums in the Plus section.

You sound a little bitter... guess you are hating M$ couldn't get you Jet Set Radio a week early by throwing money at Sega, like only they know how to do so well. Oh well, we will let you know how it is as you sit there and wait. Oh, and we will save $ on it, while you pay full price. Jokes on you! :booty:

Only the stuff listed in the PS+ section of the OP.

Speaking of themes, is it just me, or has it been a while since the last time there was a new free theme added on PS+?

When they did surveys to see what people wanted and didn't want from a revamped PS+, Minis, PS1 Games, Themes, and Avatars are things that were amongst the most-hated things about the old PS+. So you won't see nearly as much of that stuff from now on.

On board with all of those things being useless except for PS1 classics.

I like getting free PS1 classics, and would love to get some PS2 classics as well.

Here is my video for EX 9. You can find the rest (minus 3 I think, which is on JustPushStarts YT) on via my Youtube. When EX 10 releases, I will upload that too.

Dude Spelunker (among others) have home unlocks... sorta funny that you didn't know that. Unless you mean Avatars next to our name, then Catherine had them. (Limited time, Japan only)

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Only as part of the "Deathmatch Made in Heaven" DLC pack, to be released this October. AFAIK Rockstar hasn't released any details about it, but I highly doubt it will enable co-op in the single player campaign if that's what you're hoping.

Just a heads-ups, for those getting Double Dragon Neon, it will NOT have online co-op at launch, according to JoyStiq's review. WayForward will add the feature via patch sometime in the future.

Sorry, I'm an idiot. I've actually never played a second of any JS game. I have JSRF (I think) for the original Xbox but haven't ever plugged it in. Since they're named kind of oddly (JSR, JSRF, Jet Grind Radio) I get them confused all the time.

And you only get one chance at a discount all year.

Negatory. You need access to a PS3. Psp and PSOne titles can be gotten through MediaGo on a PC, but not PS3 games.

I think you can access the playstation store on your ps3 using remote play if you have a psp (or vita I'm assuming). So you might be able to use your handheld to turn on your system and add the games to your download list if you have remote play set up.

The game is awesome, but I actually liked the novels and the movie better than the game. One huge license of awesomeness.

There's a trick in which you can level up faster. Not sure if it's already patched up. It only worked on the PS3 version.

So I decided to download every single game I own on PSN, it took me all weekend to download them all (46 games in total). I was surprised it only took half of the available HDD space (149GB out of 298GB avaliable) at one point I thought I would surely run of space. Two things I learned from this 1. navigating the psn download list is a pain in the ass its really hard to find what you want when you have to sort 300+ items on that list, a search function would greatly help or maybe having different sections for demos, ps3, avatars,themes, ps vita, etc.. 2. I really don't need a bigger hard drive like I thought I did, I was thinking of upgrading my hhd to a 1TB but to be honest I don't think I'll ever need that much space
