I wish we could get rid of 0% games on our trophy list only to make it more manageable. I am no where near the completion % you guys have as even games I like I will rarely be able to 100% due to online and other hard trophies I dont have the skill and patience for. I just want the 0% games gone so the list is smaller and more of a true representation of games I actually played. Usually I have 0% on a game because I decided it isnt worth the time to play. After all I do have nearly 50 games in the backlog at the moment. I am sure some of you have much more.

Diet soda is the worst.

I really want Dokuro, Okami, and Killzone HD but I think I'll wait to see what happens with Vita Plus.

Okami worth every penny im about 60+ hours and still not finished.

The Best-Selling PSN Games for October:

While we tip our hats to yet another amazing performance byThe Walking Dead with Episode 4: Around Every Corner, we’re giving the spotlight to a little game that could — Retro City Rampage.

Last month’s top PS Vita seller, Retro City Rampage pays tribute to games from days gone by, while adopting the open-world gameplay of modern day titles. Crafted by a small team led by Brian Provinciano, the game features an 8-bit art style, complete with amazing chiptunes.

Honorable mentions go to a number of the Day 1 Digital games. Dishonored, NBA 2K13,Resident Evil 6, Doom 3 BFG Edition, and Assassin’s Creed 3 (not to mention a great performance by Assassin’s Creed III Liberation on PS Vita) all debuted in fine form.

Congrats once again to The Walking Dead Episode 4 and Retro City Rampage. Check out the full results below and let us know what your predictions for the charts are for November.

I really want Dokuro, Okami, and Killzone HD but I think I'll wait to see what happens with Vita Plus.


I would suggest staying away from Killzone HD. I played 10 minutes to get some footage for the site and hated it. Feels like a COMPLETELY different game from 2/3.

9 hours to sync is pretty insane admiralvic. i have alot of games and mine takes at most 15mins and even that gets me impatient. Also i don't know why people fret over 0%'s, i think about 25% of my games list is 0-5%s just from putting the game in, playing a level and trading it back in/sending back the rental/back to the backlog. and yeah if i want to check my trophies I just choose to do it ingame now on and hope it doesn't freeze. edit below my gamers tags, yeah 54% completion on 548 games is pretty bad... I gotta quit making babies and play my games!


9 hours was to sync my WHOLE list (all 300+ titles), not just a normal sync.

I wish we could get rid of 0% games on our trophy list only to make it more manageable. I am no where near the completion % you guys have as even games I like I will rarely be able to 100% due to online and other hard trophies I dont have the skill and patience for. I just want the 0% games gone so the list is smaller and more of a true representation of games I actually played. Usually I have 0% on a game because I decided it isnt worth the time to play. After all I do have nearly 50 games in the backlog at the moment. I am sure some of you have much more.


I agree, but also disagree. On one hand it sucks having to forever live with a game you might hate, but on the other it forces you to give it more of a chance. If you want to avoid that stuff, you could just play on an alternate. It's not as good, but it would give you the same end result.

I am very surprised at how many people buy digital retail games.


I am, but at the same time I am not. Most of the digital sales are most likely for people who think they're going to play the game a lot, have several systems or gameshare. Buying Biohazard 6 on day 1 with 2 people bumps the cost down to 30 per person (not bad since it has yet to hit this point) and you 2 can play together or whenever you want without having to load the disc.

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.

I think a big part of it is that this a pretty normalized practice on the PC over the past few years. Granted, there's never been much resale value to PC games because of serial keys, but tons of people pay $60 for games and preload them over Steam. If it wasn't for PC distribution, I doubt almost anyone would consider paying MSRP for a digital version.

I bought Sports Champions 2 digitally so I could install it on my PS3 and my gf's system too, and it put me over the $100 for October. I usually don't buy digitally, but if it's a game we both want it makes sense to download rather than buying it twice.

I share your surprise 100%. But I guess it's a good thing for the industry that so many people have no problem dropping $60 on a new game, digital or not. I love video games, but with my purchasing practices, I do nothing to fuel money into the industry.

I noticed many digital vita releases were $34.99 instead of their physical copy's $39.99.

Not that big of a big difference in price and the fact that you don't have a physical copy you can resell/give away but I suppose those kind of things don't matter to some people.

I got Killzone HD, because I loved the other ones. They are actual a few of the FPS I can play without getting motion sickness. And I've enjoyed what I've played so far, but can understand how someone would be disappointed if they are expecting something like Killzone 2. Don't set your expectations too high and you wont be disappointed.

Also everyone get Okami HD!!! I am really enjoying it, more so than the Wii version, I'm not a fan of the motion controls, but it's nice to know I can try them out if I chose.

Yeah, I've heard many complaints about the first Killzone but I gotta get it at least for the story.

Debating on getting the digital version of Persona 3 Portable. I have the Persona 1 and 2 on UMD already. I also still have my disc copy of FES in my backlog. It might be a long time before I start/finish FES. Might just wait for a sale on Amazon for P3P's UMD.

They won't do any special prices on Friday unless the new store has change the way they want to go about updating things. We'll probably [hopefully] get some good sales on the Tuesday before.

To my knowledge and the best of my memory, no, Sony does nothing for black friday. I could see them using Thanksgiving as some sort of excuse for a holiday sale, but that's about it. Considering black friday is only a U.S. thing and usually B&M exclusive, I don't see why they would even bother.

Yes, they've had an annual "Stock Up For Winter" sale during the Thanksgiving/Black Friday week that starts the Tuesday of that week. So expect it to return this year on the 20th.

PSN. The subject was: "Your Cash Reward"
