Yep, I was pointing out the retail games for each region on the lists made by tylerh1701.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE PS+ and I don't complain, I just think we need some balance between USA and Europe retail and PSN free games.

:)


To be fair, EU has always been the "best plus". Prior to the instant game collection days, they gave away plenty of unique dynamic themes (2 a month I believe) and several avatars. Some of the themes went to other regions over time, but many of the avatars never crossed region. As far as more games coming over, I am really on the fence with that.

On one hand it was awesome getting King of Fighters, but on the other I see space coming into play. Starhawk was 10 gb if I recall and several other games were in that range. Lets also not forget that many of these games can be had for as much (or less) than the PSN titles we get in the US. I rather get more games like Double Dragon Neon, which are fun / enjoyable and new so I don't go "aw I wish I had waited" or "another week where I don't get anything new".

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.

Set your region as Europe? (come on... use some common sense) and no. EU supports paypal I guess, so you can use that.


you can only use paypal if your paypal account is tied to that country which means US can't create an EU account and use paypal on it, unless they have a paypal account tied to the country in which they ade the paypal account.

Example:
You make an UK account you need to have your paypal account tied to your with an UK address otherwise it won't work

From:
http://en.support.so...etail/a_id/2949

If your Sony Entertainment Network account is registered in one of the countries listed below, then you can top-up your wallet with PayPal™ using our Account Management site:
Austria
Luxembourg
Belgium
Netherlands
Finland
Portugal
France
Slovenia
Greece
Spain
Ireland
United Kingdom
Italy

Please note that your PayPal™ account must be registered in the same country as your Sony Entertainment Network account. For example, if your Sony Entertainment Network account was set up in France, you will only be able to use PayPal™ if your PayPal™ account billing address is also in France.

KOF XIII was a great addition, DD Neon and Scott Pilgrim are really fun (specially if you couch co-op with some friends).
Hope to see at PS+ in the near future:
- Metal Gear Solid (PSOne)
- God Hand (Ps2)
- Plant vs Zombies (I know it was free before but I missed that sale)
- Trine (same as PvZ)
- Okami HD
- Catherine
- Lollipop Chainsaw
- Castlevania Lords of Shadow.

Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation is already on the PSN store (US). The only way to get it is to search for it.

Might as well mention this, but it seems there's a V4.31 update available. It's optional, & it's mainly for stability, particularly for Monster Hunter Portable 3 HD.

Ok, I know I'm late to the party, but I'm finally getting around to playing Spelunker HD. And it's one of the most boring games I've ever seen. Ever.

I can also finally settle the debate as to why games like Demons/Dark Souls are revered for their difficulty, and games like Spelunker are hated. It's because the Souls series isnt based off shitty controls and an incredibly poor detection system. There's a difference between being difficult because it was designed that way, and being difficult because it's such a poorly put together game.

I'm also curious about this. Makes me sick that my 500GB hard drive will be full soon. I blame this trend of most AAA games requiring a 4-5 Gig install. Sure I could delete a bunch of those to make room, but I like the idea of being able to throw in any game I own and play right away (as opposed to waiting 20 min for an install). Oh well.

Assuming you're not just trolling, I'll respond. I enjoyed Spelunker HD so far. I definitely don't think Spelunker HD is poorly put together. The game works as it is intended, and is plenty fair to me, just difficult.

That being said, I don't like blisteringly hard games. I don't know how far I'll make it through Spelunker HD, but so far I've enjoyed my time and enjoyed getting better at the game.

Demon Souls was super boring to me. It's been forever since I played it, but the action was incredibly dull and retracing my steps over and over got old real quick.

Glad you could finally settle this debate without any bias or baseless facts. Can't wait to read the review! :roll:

This thread at Gamefaqs says the Wii version is about 4GB and PS2 version is about 3GB, for what that's worth.

Sorry guys, I thought we could joke around and have opinions. But I forgot that some people get their panties in a bunch when you don't like the same games they do.

That being said...yay Spelunker! ZOMG I can't believe you 100%!!!!

I think the larger install times aren't an indication of anything being wrong. If anything, the bigger the file, the more that it contains. To me, this is one of the strongest benefits of digital media...the fact that it's not limited by the size of a disc or cartridge. Unfortunately, 95% of major games are developed with the intent of being a disc/cartridge, so digital doesn't have a chance to shine in one of the few areas it really could.

But imagine...if games weren't limited to a certain size, there would be no need for compression of audio, video, or textures. Everything would look and sound gorgeous as long as developers had the right tools at their disposal. But it's going to be a loooooong time before digital overcomes physical media as the standard.

I think the biggest issue was...

...I can also finally settle the debate...


Not only does that imply your opinion is a fact (which it's not), it instantly throws the book out on having a debate, since you already believe you know it all. I think Tyler was right about this being a troll attempt, but in the off chance it's not, thats why. Finally, if you want to throw out opinions on a game, at least have more knowledge on it. According to your trophies you haven't beat 10 levels (out of 100... 200 with DLC... 400 with online), yet you automatically dismiss your inability to do something as a flaw with the game.

--edit--

With this, I am going to definitely assume this is a troll attempt or something just as stupid. Either or, this is the last I am going to say on the subject.
