What probably happened is they expired when your sub ran out. And it needed to sync them back up to your new sub expiration date.

Is there an easier way to do that other than triggering each game while signed into PSN to the proper account?

That's the only way I've seen it work so far.

Thanks for the replies, that is probably what happened. It is unfortunate that one has to trigger each game. I assume that's the only way to do it, it would be nice to be wrong though.

I don't really keep up too well on buying and selling games on ebay and whatnot. I had no idea that MGS: Twin Snakes was so sought after. I bought it way back in the day brand new and was just thinking about playing through it now that I have the HD collection. As far as I can recall, Thrinn's recap is accurate. The Twin Snakes is made much easier by the updated gameplay mechanics and the collection items are pretty cool.

Any game can be a free PS+ game. Anything more specific than that is pure speculation.

Well I like to think that they won't double up, so we can at least eliminate already selected games.

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.

You're right that Sony's not going to drop the price since it's not their game. That is D3's responsibility since they're the publisher.

There's a specific mission for each animal that unlocks the next animal on the list, so aim to do that during a run in survival mode.

For a game that shouldn't be launching at $40 in the first place I completely agree. The original was a budget title, and this is an enhanced port.... 6 years later. I'd be extremely tempted to grab it for $20.

Actually, it's the marketplace that Sony has set up, just as Apple pushed for the .99 model as the baseline pricing for iTunes, so has Sony historically set up a digital download service that rarely sees huge price drops and is defined by near retail pricing for digital goods.

Just look at the PSP Go as an example of Sony's extreme control over an all-digital marketplace. It's true that the publisher authorizes the sale price, however the overall market defines the degree of the sales offered ... Sony does not offer a compelling market, although MS nor Nintendo are much better.

Huh? It's exactly the same on both marketplaces. If the content owner doesn't want to drop the price or offer sales on their content, then it doesn't happen. We get price drops every week, as noted by this thread, but you can tell when publishers just don't give a shit. Namco still has their PSP titles at full price and Konami's done nothing with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker to try to push owners of the PS3 HD collection to grab that as a companion version for transfarring.

When they do care, you get stuff like the Holiday Essentials sale that has been going on for the past three weeks and reoccuring sales from Creat Studios, Sega, Atlus, and others. I'd agree that Steam-style sales aren't that common, but it does happen on occasion to give us $1-$3 games.

iTunes is a completely different beast because the pricing structure has been destroyed by the race to the bottom and IAPs that doesn't make it comparable to console marketplaces where they offer retail titles that have more baggage and arrogant pricing than the digital-only titles that are offered alongside it.

Terrible example, since Dokuro was ALWAYS cheap.

According to Amazon.co.jp (in Japan they're physical copies), Sumioni was priced at 5,229 yen ($60), where as Dokuro was a mere 2,400 yen ($27).

Yes, but how old were most of those games? I'd guess at least 3-6 months before EDF drops to the $20 it should be.

We have different definitions of the word terrible, apparently.

you can 100% the trophies without playing all the animals. with the exception of the campaign, i play only 2 other animals. the vast majority are still 'locked', but i have the most fun with the specific animals i want to play.
