Why do people still assume we'll get the same games as EU Plus? They're two completely different regions and companies. Don't even waste your time looking at what they get. It usually just leads to sour grapes.


RE5 Gold because of RE6 was good guess, not because EU got it. But they are starting to get games from our old list, so why not assume?

The Top-Selling Games on PSN for September:

Why, hello again The Walking Dead. We seem to see you top these charts every time one of your episodes releases — in this case Episode 3: Long Road Ahead.

Either way, congratulations once again on Episode 3: Long Road Ahead and its dominance of the charts in September! Other respectable debuts include Jet Set Radio, Borderlands 2, and Tokyo Jungle.

PS Vita had a great September as well, with amazing games like LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and Madden 13 hitting hard, and August’s Sound Shapes rounding out the top three.

US and EU use to get MANY of the same games and the instant game collections were pretty similar too. I think in the whole history of plus, there is only maybe 20 (not counting ps1 or things no one cares about) total games that didn't go to one or the other. Also many of the plus exclusive stuff (themes / avatars) were later offered in other regions. Sure not every region is indicative of the others, but EU and US tend to be pretty similar.

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.

This line of thinking leads to the whining when we don't get something that they do and they whine when we get something that they don't. Similarities between the two regions are coincidences. Thinking that they are going to be similar leads to expectations that they will be similar and then hurt feelings when they were looking forward to one of those games.

Look, I'm not complaining, but our EU brothers clearly have a better instant game collection. The disparity in quality is laughable! There's no arguing around that, lol. I don't know why that it is, and frankly I've stopped caring. They also have socialized healthcare. That's life.

Never heard of KOF, but I'm grateful I don't own the game because I'm always down to try new stuff. I owe my newfound adoration for the Walking Dead series (TV show) to the IGC, and more recently, my obsession with Borderlands 2.

@bsmiff Thanks for the response. I'm going to pick it up tonight. I just wanted to be sure the game had some substance and wasn't all novelty.

Haha, well i'm more of a casual fighter fan. Beyond Capcom series, Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat (which, I've never played), can't think of any other games. Hmmm...maybe Blaz Blue -- still, couldn't describe to you what it looks like. Not a knock at KOF, just suck at the genre.

Did they even ever fix the online in KoF? I remember last match i played felt like I was on dialup.

Either way, I dont see myself playing it much, the inputs in that game are so damn strict. I prefer BlazBlue/Persona Arena more lately.

Being a fairly big fan of fighters, I think KoF XIII is a fantastic game with both style and depth to spare.

However, the netcode leaves much to be desired especially for a game with smaller hit confirm windows than most other fighters.

Not to say you can't enjoy the game online but if you want to become competitive with the game, I suggest you find an offline scene to invest your training time in. Either way, it's a good game and I'm glad more people will be able to play it now.

^ this
the online isn't very good. Most people will use fireball teams to win online matches.

its cool to see kof 13 is coming out for plus. Its an really good game that everyone should try :D. but we still need KOF '98 with online play on psn. :/

amazon will take your ps3 copy of KOF for 13.50 for right now, may drop soon.

best buy can't find kof 13 in the search and I don't know the current bonus for trade ins, so I couldn't tell you what they will pay... and gamestop probably under 9 bucks as always.

Glyde has the game going in excellent condition market price for $21.25(in your pocket) if it sells.

Pretty good, if you're wanting to sell the game.

I always found it hard to get friends to play zombies mode with me, they always wanted to play the regular multiplayer. Whenever I played zombies it was with randoms which pretty much suck since there is no teamwork involved whatsoever so I really don't care if they cut out of the game its fine by me

Nice Doctor Who is only $10, I know the game will probably won't be that good but I'm such a big fan of the show that I will look past its flaws and buy it anyway. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's update, there is a lot of good games coming that its going to make it easier to spend $100 this month, I plan on getting Doctor Who, Retro City Rampage, Derrick, Shinobi and Sunflowers.

I hope they do not have online trophies for that game. I'd like to play through it, but i can see the online being a ghost town in a few weeks caused by the suckage this game looks to be. Going to have to drop hard in order for me to grab it.

After playing LBP and Resistance online with the vita I can say, HOLY Fuck does it LAAAAAAAAAAGGGG!!!!
