I would never waste my time on those in the first place, since I've found deals on many of the games that have had the trials thanks to CAG for much cheaper than their overpriced digital counterparts from PSN.:booty:


That's true. I had that argument with my coworker over a year ago. He mentioned how downloading games is a better option instead of buying the game from a retail store. He mentioned how it was more convenient to have that game installed in your hard drive etc. I mentioned almost all games go on sale from time to time, and you can get a better deal than you would if you bought a digital copy. Most people don't have big hard drives i.e. 1TB drives. It's not a computer, it's a console. Let's take Catherine for example. Digital copy = $40, New copy was $29.99. It was recently on sale used at Gamefly for $14.99. There might be a sale for that game in the future for the digital copy, but it will never hit the $14.99 price.

After I explained my points, I left it at that. Maybe it's convenient, but I'd rather wait and scour through the CAG forums to find a better deal instead of paying full price for a digital download....

Hell yes, that machine kicks ass. I still play the one close by to me in NY often, and it just rules.

Browsing new releases, etc... Pinball Arcade... Future additions... ATTACK FROM MARS?!

This will ultimately offer my favorite pinball machine of all time? Hello, suddenly I'm interested.

So does the Montezuma game have trophies?



Wondering the same and also why is it free... ads or spyware installed?

I know everybody and their mother already owns WipEout HD, but if you don't and were thinking about getting in on this deal be aware that the game has been broken since patch 2.40 dropped in mid February:

It's been close to two months now and still no sign of a fix.

Played a bit of Treasures of Montezuma Blitz and can confirm for those that didn't believe me that it has no trophies. The limits on play time don't seem to be that bad since I took a break for a minute or two and had a heart already return, so it's a good game for that quick pick-up fix while you're doing other things.

That explains why that PS+ benefits graphic shows early demo access instead of early Qore access now.

So PS+ members basically lost a digital magazine subscription while regular PSN members are penalized with delayed demos.:-|

I never understood why they had both Qore AND Pulse which was always free. I won't miss Qore, when Veronica Belmont left as host, there really was no more reason to be interested in Qore. Her replacement with the well meaning, but inferior Jessie made it clear that Qore wasn't gonna last much longer.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 - Serah's Outfit Style and Steel - Free

God dammit, now that I've beat the game they give out free DLC. That and the Assassin's Creed outfit is awesome, but totally not worth $3 lol.

How the hell do you find this stuff anyway? Good thing I check this thread because you'd have to dig through the store to notice subtle additions like that.

It's really easy to find since it's listed under New Releases > New Add-ons and it's mentioned on the PS Blog.

One was kind of the magazine while the other was kind of a newsletter. They had different focuses and levels of production.

Only if you check weekly. They could benefit from a changelog, sort everything by date, something.

It is sorted by date. The items for the most recent update are at the top, then the update before that and so on before whatever cutoff they make for it.

The New Releases section has the games that released this week with links to the sections for latest add-ons, demos, themes, avatars, videos, and PSP/Vita stuff.

I mean a single list of everything sorted by date. Right now, if you miss a week or two, you have to check every category.

Thanks for the clarification, but they still seem redundant to me, both were downloaded digital multimedia publilcations that advertised (ahem, "showcased") PS3 games. They did not need both, and cancelling Qore kinda proves it.

Oh, I was able to find it just fine once I knew it existed. I don't read the blog; I rely on them to actually tag these updates with PSN+ or New Releases. Clearly they like to hide some free content elsewhere though. . .

It doesn't actually prove that at all. The PS Blog can kind of do all of the content that Qore offered without the expensive production costs associated with making it.

Right, my point being at a high level it's not visible; you still have to drill down to find it. I don't regularly check add-ons because I don't buy DLC. If it had simply been tagged as free or new release, I would have found it right away. Although, I suppose for the sake of clutter I understand why it's that way. At any rate, I'm glad you mentioned it even though I'll never see/use it lol.

It would still be in the same spot, so I guess I don't understand what tagging it as free or new release means.

When I signed up to PS+ I downloaded an episode of Qore for free to check it out. On the menu it had an option to download extra freebies but when I clicked it it said I needed a yearly Qore subscription fee. So I said forget that and never looked back.

I was unaware we could get free content from these "Single Use" freebie Qore monthly episodes. Or is it a special last episode thing?
