Love that new websotre, makes purchasing my PS + games a breeze. Good job Sony.

Hope that Cubixx game is not just the Mini title, but otherwise it looks pretty cool.

The PSN version got good reviews including an 8/10 on Eurogamer.

The online store is great. I already "purchased" the rest of the PS+ games. They're in my purchase history for download later. Actually it's a little wonky. It seemed to let me "buy" the Vita games, but then I wasn't sure I'd gotten them all, so I tried the ones I thought I'd missed and then it said I couldn't purchase them. Is that it's way of saying that I already purchased them, or is there some reason I can't purchase them (I should note that I don't yet have a Vita - I'm getting them in case I ever do).

Also I'm kind of glad it doesn't automatically download the games once I log into the PS3, because I don't want to download them right now. However when buying a game I do want to play right away, well then I'd change my tune. :)

Greed Corp and Gatling Gears are both awesome games (check out some reviews) for those wondering. That said, it feels kind of weird to pay $5 for them considering the deals from this week.

Greed corp was at 2.50$ some months ago, not sure about Gatling Gears I don't know why they are not doing 2.50$ again for PS+, maybe they will again

So glad there is a web store now. It will cut out the need to turn on my playstation just to get the plus games and what not. I'm thinking in the long run I'll end up spending more too.

Only browsed it for a couple minutes and aded a PS+ game to my account but I think I really really like the web store. Simple and quick. Much better than the store on the Playstation.

As I understand it, the only game which really had issues was the first Hitman game (the only one I haven't played).

Hitman: Contracts is just that, flashbacks of various missions of Agent 47, about half of which are remakes from the first Hitman game and the other half are new, as such you don't miss that much not having the first game in this collection. Contracts also features probably my favorite level in all three of those Hitman games, Traditions of the Trade which is set in a hotel. It features so many different options to complete your mission that it is a joy to play over and over and I would buy it immediately if it ever came back to Steam.

Hitman: Blood Money has a greater volume of quality missions than Contracts with a few standouts and has a better narrative focus than the slightly jumbled Contracts, but none of the missions meet the high mark set by Traditions of the Trade (though a few come close).

Hitman 2 has a few great missions, but as it is earlier in the franchise the quality is more inconsistent with fewer options to complete your mission. It could also be less memorable because it has probably been 9 or 10 years since I last played it.

If you don't want to get all of them, I would probably get Blood Money, Contracts, and/or Hitman 2; in that order.

Now they need to get their act together and get other stuff online, such as seeing what friends are playing or if online, send/receive messages, look at games and their trophies (and which you've completed), do this such that Raptr can track game time, etc.

You are not crazy.
On the front page of the store, it is listed at $10.99 (for me anyway).
But when I went to a specific section (PSN Plus?) it was showing $10.

Love the web store; runs so much faster/smoother than the PS3 one. Noticed a single issue. I bought LBP Karting on Tuesday along with other games, but the web store doesn't mark it as purchased (other games are marked).

Your best chance at catching the Sly Collection on sale is when Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time comes out early next month. I'd hold off till then.

Holy shit, I just realized something. Didn't the iOS port of Vice City have issues with the soundtrack? I hope that isn't the case with the PSN release. That soundtrack is crucial to that game!

It was removed from all versions that are currently on sale, which currently just covers the Steam and mobile versions. The PS2 version probably suffers the same fate.

Love that new websotre, makes purchasing my PS + games a breeze. Good job Sony.

Hope that Cubixx game is not just the Mini title, but otherwise it looks pretty cool.

And I actually regret buying CubixxHD for $5 a few months ago. The actual game is a pretty decent idea, but the implementation isn't great. There's a lot of replaying levels over and over because you have to beat (I think) 5 levels with one set of lives before you can unlock the next set of levels. The trophies are pretty terrible as well, which is something not everybody cares about, but I do.

The Minis version, which is what the PSM version is based on, it better in that sense since it's handled like an arcade game.

I dont understand. What is the "it" that was removed? The entire soundtrack? Just the handful of songs that were mentioned by waldo above? Something else?

It would be a real bummer to play Vice City without *any* 80's songs.

Thanks for the info on Cubixx. I guess that is the free PS Mobile game for the week. I was hoping we would get a vita IGC game since Chronovolt is going away.
