Has anyone had success buying PSN codes from Gamestop's website? Do you get the code right away?


Got em instantly after payment (Used trade credit to pay for it). Was able to check it online through your account.

I feel like we're stealing paying only $49.99 a year for PS+! Shit just got real!

Good lord, PS+ just goes by too fast for me sometimes. I completely missed Plants vs. Zombies being free - downloading it now. The funny thing is that I just finished playing through the iPad version with my son yesterday. I've already beaten it on PS3 and 360. I might as well play through the Vita version as well. That is one game that I can play multiple times without getting tired of it. But they need to come out with a new one - not sure why they didn't a year ago.

Disgaea is awesome, highly recommended!

Shameless plug: for you trophy hunters, be sure to check out my awesome guides:

60 hours for plat not for me :^o


60 hours is long for you? Now that I look at it I don't think see any games that take more than 60 hours to complete :P


Yeah, seriously, it only takes 60 hours for the plat? I had always heard people sink 100's of hours into Disgaea games which is why I never started one even though I own them all except, fortunately, the Vita version. I guess I can ditch my PS3 copy now though. I might just cue this up to play next once I finish Etrian Odyssey IV on the 3DS. I don't know what it is, but I've been on a handheld game binge recently, even though I am just playing at home.

But I just spent 90+ hours getting the platinum in Ni No Kuni, so 60 for Disgaea would seem fast.

So, captaintek3304, is it possible to get the platinum after playing through without a guide at first? I like to stay spoiler free and try to enjoy my initial playthrough without having to consult a guide every step of the way. Some games let you do that and others don't (if they have stupid missable trophies). What's the deal with Disgaea 3 in that regard?

As for Spec Ops: meh, I'll download it but I don't see it moving above about #100 in my backlog any time soon. But if it really is that quick to play through maybe I'll give it a shot. Military shooters are just about the last thing that interests me though. I can barely tolerate Halo but at least that has the sci-fi thing going for it.

When it means no missable trophies that means you can go back and go for the trophies after you beat the game. The problem sometimes is that it can be harder to get certain trophies when you go back. (guide says no missable trophies)

For spec ops, it is a really short game with a very interesting twist in your normal military shooters which I think warrents enough reason to move it up a bit in your back log.

sorry if this is a dumb question, but do we still have to "buy" the free igc games? or is it automatically added to your account?

Also, really hoping for more zen pinball tables to go on sale.

haven't played but same as Escape Plan applies to this. If you are into puzzle games and like that art style then you should get it. 76% on Metacritic and 8.8 on IGN.

Is it true that all the "free" games that Playstation Plus offers are essentially rentals? When our subscription ends that we can no longer play them?

If that is true, how does it work with your "free" Vita games?

Same way. Once the sub is up, you can't play the game anymore.

It's the same. It is a subscription and you are basically renting games. The good thing about this is that , unlike other rental services, you get to keep the title that you download in your catalog and it can be used as long as you are the member of the service.

If you take a break and come back to PS+, they will still be in your download list to download and play.

Yeah, I've heard one was coming out this year. But while we are subjected to yearly Assassin's Creed and CoD games here is one franchise that could have been milked much more than it has been. Hell, just look at how oversaturated Angry Birds is. I have yet to finish even one of those and here I am playing P vs Z for the 4th time.

I also just discovered that it actually has a platinum on the Vita - wow. There are many more trophies than for the PS3 version which will add some new goals for me. I'm glad they did that at least!

Pulled the trigger late last night and bought a year PS Plus sub to get the 3 free months before the deadline. Already had the free 10 bucks from PSN in my wallet which made it 40 bucks for 15 months, plus I'll get 10 bucks back from the March promotion.

On top of that I redeemed the free month of Plus from buying the disc based version of Journey (voucher expires at the end of this month) so I have 16 months of plus ahead of me.

I agree 100%!

It's even better when you jump in during one of their discount periods (like the one that ends today) and save even more.

Unfortunately, I feel compelled to download EVERY "free" title and have been doing so since month #2 or #3. I replaced my 500GB drive last spring with a 1TB drive and if I don't start deleting things soon I'll fill it up by the end of the summer. (1st world problems).

I bought this last night on the online store and activated it. Was any confirmation given after purchase that the 3 extra months were added to the year? I didn't see any if so.

Thanks.

Nothing extra - only way I found to confirm was by looking at the expiration date of PS+ in services or of any PS+ games you have - they should be 15 months from yesterday's date.

I noticed that they announce Spec Ops on the day before this promo ends. Well played Sony. Probably would have lost some potential sales had something like Ratchet and Clank: FFA been announced as the next big game for Plus

No there is no confirmation but if you go into your account settings and look up Plus on your system, you will see that 15 months was added.

Decided not to renew my PS+ subscription even if it was $40 (after $10 back promo) and 3 extra months. I don't really play the freebies that they offer (cause either I own them already on 360, backlog for ftw; or I just don't play PS3 that much in general). All that stuff won't work on PS4 anyhow, so I gotta let my current subscription die and wait for the next gen.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

Dokuro is awesome. It's a hybrid puzzle-action platformer. You'll run into big groups of levels that are very heavy on puzzles, then the tone changes to more of an action game where you have to kill and dodge baddies and protect the princess. It has quite a bit of content (147 levels and a platinum) and would be great for any puzzle fan. I can't recommend it enough.
