Portal 2 is actually on there as well, at #19.

I, too, am continually surprised at the success of day one digital releases. And GTA IV. Seriously, GTA IV has been in the top 20 (and usually in the top 10) for every month since February 2012, excluding October. Am I missing something here? Why would the digital version of this game be so popular?

Maybe this is a silly question but how do the mechanics work for the automatic trophy syncing, installs, and updates for Plus? I know you can set the system to do it during a certain time period but does the PS3 actually make that loud startup beep and run the fans and everything or is it more unobtrusive that actually turning your system on and using it normally?

My two PS3s are in a bedroom and one behind entertainment center doors that I have to open when I want to use it. Neither would be too conducive to having the PS3 run warm and/or loud in the middle of the night. I've always left those features disabled for fear of that.

Yeah, its a full boot up but takes usually no more than 5 min depending on what's being downloaded.

I set mine at the 4-6 AM time and it never wakes me up. Sometimes I've already waken up when it turns on but it's really not that loud. Also, like perfect says, it's never on for very long.

It's Grand Theft Auto and it's $20. That's about all it really needs for most people. GTA3 was at the top of the PS2 Classics every month since release until December when Bully and GTA San Andreas' releases pushed it to #3.

You could always set it to go on when you're awake but not going to use the PS3 like if you're not home.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time demo coming to PS+ Jan. 22nd, will be available to everyone else the week after. It's different from the one that was on the Ratchet & Clank HD Collection.


good, because that was the shortest demo I've ever played

Is that so? If you get bored, I'd recommend downloading the Heavenly Sword demo sometime.

Thanks for the replies on the automatic updates. So I'm assuming that means it does the big startup beep? I don't know why but that has always bothered me and seems unnecessary. There is an LED on the front of the system for a reason. I don't need audio feedback as well.

I'm really quite tempted to burn a one month PS+ code and buy the VC2 bundle.

Looks like I'm going to need to cash in my 1 month trial finally as I would like to get Double Dragon Neon before it goes poof. Plus Mega Man, etc, etc.

Siren coming as a PS2 classic Tuesday.

Never played it myself, and after reading a review or two, it seems like it pretty frustrating/slow paced. But someone might be happy about this..

Grabbed Earth Worm Jim HD last night, even played some online multiplayer. As a game rebuilt from the ground up, it's pretty good. (No code was reused, etc.)

Earthworm Jim HD for .99!!!! :whee: Every masochist's favorite game. Probably get Dungeon Hunters as well since so many recommend it.

UNO is the number one PSP game.

LOL. Also ironic that there's a massive Gameloft sale this week.

Thanks for the replies on the automatic updates. So I'm assuming that means it does the big startup beep?


No, it thankfully comes on without the beep. The only noise it sometimes makes is from the disc spinning.

Wake-Up Club hitting PSN for Vita next Tuesday for free.

As someone who has to wake up every weekday at 7:30 AM, I might as well try this out, especially with free trophies. There'll also be themes like Journey & Tokyo Jungle for only 25 cents.

Hmmm... I have been thinking about getting that for $2.99 from GameStop across town. I wonder how much Sony will charge...

Great to see store shopping online, I will be less likely to miss out on sales now.
