lol i still can't believe they're charging $4 for frickin' angry birds. i think Snake (motorola razr edition) will debut next week at the low, low price of $9.99.

It's morally wrong for them to offer a bundle of Rival Schools avatars but not have the game available for PS3. They need to fix this now by releasing the DC version on PSN.

Was excited to see GTI Club but then bummed it was for PSP and not the PS3 version which has never gone on sale. Like the game but not enough to pay full price...

No real PSP love this week from SCEA...what a surprise. I go on my PSP and go to the store to see the ONLY thing in Special Offers is UNO PSP for $1. There are so many older, good/decent PSP games they could've put on sale, but no.

No trophies on the NEO GEO games is a fucking travesty. Not spending that kind of money on shit I already own (on AES and the neo geo collection for ps2/psp).

If they had trophy support I would probably buy them all. :bomb: LOVE Classic SNK games. SNKP... not so much.

So the games that are free for Playstation Plus members, like Spyro for instance, are those free for awhile, free as long as your a Plus subscriber, or just plain free with no strings attached ... well other than the Plus string.

but if you discontinued service of plus then what`ll happen? they`ll ask for difference or let you keep it .PS3 said you can enjoy games and benefits as long as you are plus member cuz all those games come as rentals and membership over game over.

The Neo Geo games are mostly available on various SNK compilation discs and the Virtual Console, right? $80 seems ridiculous.

Games that you pay money for are yours. The free games are subscription.

Yeah thankfully that's the only exception. And it was only so they could do an HD version on PS3.

And for those complaining about the Angry Birds price, I believe that's cheaper than the IPad version and you can play it both on PS3 and PSP.

yeah, who is complaining about the Angry Birds price?!?! thats why i was like its the best deal of the week :lol: When it hit the web outlets, no one was saying it was a mini, the PS Blog barely made mention of it. When I realized it was a mini and I could play on both systems for the price of 1 download, I was super happy. See, I'm not hip like all you iStuff and Android guys, so now I finally have Angry Birds and two ways to play!!

Wasn't the BlazBlu DLC already on sale? or was that just on xbox?

Also are any of the DLC characters actually new ones? or are they all obtainable within the game? I see the word "unlock" and I assume it's just fast tracking being able to unlock the characters for the lazy/unskilled. I only have the first BlazBlu atm but I will be getting the new one so I want to snag the new character DLC while it's on sale.

Looking forward to trying out that Lead and Gold game. I hear it's an online only third person shooter set in the wild west, plays kinda like team fortress. Man, I love free Plus games :D

Just a warning - people at GameFAQs are saying that the PSP version of Angry Birds has some bad slowdown. I got burned on the Zenonia PSP Mini (it also had slowdown and disappearing text), so I'm going to wait for some reviews first.
