Thanks for all the work Frisky. Loving the new thread smell.

I prefer no hints, since it can lead to misleading expectations. Perfect example would be the fighting game hint last month. Every post I read thought it would be Dead or Alive 5, yet it turned out to be Tekken 6 for the PSP no less.

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

But it does help you hold off all fighting game purchases until the update, does it not? I think hints are added advantageous when you are doing meticulous purchase planning.

Mathematically Correct.

Eh, we were given the hints roughly 3 days before all the games were revealed, so I doubt it helped anyone.

Good point. I definitely thought we were getting DOA5.

I'd love it too! However if you think you'd be able to play it right away, just get an EU trial and dlownload it. That's what I'll be doing if we don't end up getting it.

I don't think they should stop it because people guessed wrong.

Not saying they should either. Just saying that hints can get people excited for things and ultimately result in people being disappointed in what we get. This is QUITE similar to the problem US has with EU. People see what EU is getting and their expectations are on that level, which the US rarely lives up to. At least with no hints I am not setting myself up for fail.

Okami would be a perfect match for the vita and I hope they port it. Extremely long game, fun, and touch gestures. Maybe someday... It certainly survived its initial low sales release, which is great because it's so good. I only got halfway through it but I'd buy it for vita in a heartbeat.

And I love hints. I like guessing and hoping, and I can handle not always getting what I want. That disgae vita srpg hint made my 3 days waiting for confirmation.

Adding my voice to all those thanking Frisky for his hard work keeping us updated on the deals every week. :bow: I didn't have a PS3 until last autumn, but following this thread has helped me build a good library of games while on a budget. Also adding my voice to the "Okami PS+" wish list. :pray:

This is QUITE similar to the problem US has with EU. People see what EU is getting and their expectations are on that level, which the US rarely lives up to. At least with no hints I am not setting myself up for fail.

The only problem with the Tekken 6 hint was that it was too vague since it was basically 'It's a fighting game", so it could've been anything. Then people said it had to be DOA5 because that's what EU PS+ was getting, so both of those issues got rolled up into one. The onus is still on the audience because it was too vague to really hint at any one specific game. The smart guessers recognized that and didn't really put their eggs into one basket.

The other three hints were pretty much perfect so that they could be figured out with a little work but still vague enough that some people had their doubts.

Alright I'm done for the month...ended up skipping R&C:FFA and grabbed Machinarium for Vita and the Bioshock season pass. I wouldn't normally get a season pass, after I was let down with Borderlands 2 and their worthless DLC. Hopefully Irrational don't let me down!

Also, ended up spending $101, so didn't even have to go that far over the mark for $20 back. Woot!

@FriskyTanuki:

Big question I want to purchase games that have been de-listed, I know that one option is if you have a code of that said game, since I know someone that had a game voucher, and after that said game was de-listed, and because the voucher wasn't redeemed, it still added to his account.

Now the games I would want are:
R-types and R-type Delta.

I know that Irem de-listed that from JP and US stores and spelunker black etc, has anyone you know in here asked for someone on the store to reintroduce something de-listed to their account and then remove the appropriate money, because as may know de-listed items are tied to your account, and still into sony servers to being able to download.

The last option I could think of doing something like this, would be to contact gamestop to ask them to purchase 2 codes of de-listed games, do you think that this would be possible , do you have a contact number, so that I contact them?


They won't and more importantly can't help you. While I don't know why EVERY game was delisted, I can tell you some like Irem's Spelunker Black was delisted (same with Minna de Spelunker btw) because Tozai Game's acquired the rights to Spelunker in Japan. Irem has no legal rights to said content, so Sony wouldn't have anyone to give the money to and pocketing it would be illegal (since Sony would be selling other peoples IP's). So the item will remain delisted till someone relists it, it becomes something new (Spelunker HD Tozai Games Edition) or whatever issue surrounding it is resolved.

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

But sony should have removed the games from their ps3 website as part of the sony ps1 collection, what's their contact I'll try to contact them anyway, I don't care

Regarding gamestop, you can buy any codes you want from gamestop from their selection of psn games and ps1 classics like spyro, etc , so I just need their contact in order to ask them also, it doesn't hurt making them a call.

Regarding Spelunker Black was only released in Japan, so of course I wouldn't want to be talking with Japan, I'd rather ask in America, there is still one r-type game published by Atlus, but that's for PSP.
