They leave them open because it saves them money on market research. If people are constantly telling Sony they want ___ game, then they can get said game and people are somewhat happy. Like what happened with Vanquish.


That does make sense. I just know it would be hard for me to read and go through all those comments if I was in charge of it haha.

Anyone ever order a PSN code from gamestop.com? I wanted to renew my PS Plus and maybe get Walking Dead but ten hours after ordering I still don't have my code.


I ordered one a few weeks ago and got it almost instantly.

Reading the PS Blog comments makes me chuckle...then cry for the sad state of humanity. Makes one wonder why they don't just deactivate comments. Course I guess people would resort to whiny emails then. Gotta love the almighty entitlement people feel these days whether they are buying a $.99 app or paying a few bucks a month for plus. *sigh*

I agree 100%.

That's the one game it's been confirmed that it won't be.

It's not even on PSN, though that's never stopped people from guessing those sorts of games before.

-Game 1: "A big, critically acclaimed shooter. Turned the world on its head in terms of what to expect from a shooter." Maybe Spec Ops: The Line?

hmm. was spec ops 'big'? it was critically acclaimed and fits the description, though. bioshock does, but since 2 was already given i doubt they'd do 1. same with borderlands. so...yea, Spec Ops is my guess too.

It was. It got a ton of acclaim around its launch for the story and the way the game plays, though the lackluster multiplayer is what killed its review scores. It got a second push during the award season and I know it won an award or two from Giant Bomb and made a few of the staff's personal Top 10 lists. The wiki page lists some of the awards that it has won:

In January 2013, Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw named the game his game of the year for 2012, calling it "the most exciting thing to happen in video game narrative for fucking years."[43] IGN awarded it "Best PC Story of 2012".[44] Mature-Gaming.com awarded the game its "Surprise of 2012" award, praising how effectively it subverted the player's expectations of the genre.[45] Entertainment Weekly called it the fifth-best game of 2012, also naming Nolan North's performance as Walker "the year's best vocal performance",[46] a point echoed by Edge in their "alternative" awards for 2012.[47] At Machinima.com's 4th annual Inside Gaming Daily Awards for 2012 the game received the award for best narrative.[48]

If I buy Modnation racers road trip can you use the dlc from the ps3, or just user created stuff?

No. User-creations are cross-platform though.

Does anyone have any idea how often ps1 classics go on sale? I feel like I just missed a 50% off, not sure if this is my best option to pick up xenogears, parasite eve and a couple final fantasys

You just missed the Final Fantasy 50% off sale, though I don't think either of those others have ever been on sale. PS1 Classics aren't on sale as often as the other types of games, but there's probably at least something every month.

So, is there any way to renew the license on a free with PS+ PSP game? I bought a month of PS+, downloaded Mega X Maverick Hunter, re-upped my subscription with the 15 months offer, but it didn't change the date on the game. Do I have redownload the entire game to renew the license?

Once it passes the original date, it'll update to the new date. There's no need to really be concerned about it.

Are we sure the vita sale will have more different deals or is that just speculation?

i ask because i was going to go to best buy to grab a couple games today



That's all we know right now.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Thanks Frisky for replying.

only if you want more from the game. ask yourself that question and look deep within your soul. if you can't figure it out by then well go and rub one out and then think about it some more. thats usually the process i do when i can't make a decision.

The buy one year of PS+ get 3 more months promotion ends on the third!!! DON'T forget if you are willing to get those extra months and the $10 back.

Just a question, the promotion ends March 3rd, does this mean that the promition WILL expire March 2 at night or March 3 at night?

I added $10 via a code to my wallet last night. I then added $39.99 via my credit card and got another year of Plus for $49.99. I have not received the $10. How long does this normally take?

Was going to post the link above, then I read the OP. Do people seriously not even read the OP anymore? Did you not see the huge red box of text that clearly answered your question?

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

In roughly 1/4th of time you spent typing out your post (and subsequently this one) you could have found the answer to your question. So yes, I do find it a bit humorous that a veteran CAG couldn't have just checked the OP.

Some people are just extremely lazy. Even on the internet. Its sad.

On the other hand, picked up Smart As the other day and its pretty fun to play a little every day. Definitely recommend for $13 if you like brain games.

the only absolute confirmation i've read was for PS+ subs (the mod at the time wasn't sure if games adding up to that counted). they probably do? but unless further confirmation has come out i'd buy something to top it off (i believe i read the cheapest thing on the store is .25).

Yeah, I've seen various people ask this around different places and there's been no sure answer on games, just PS+. Best probably to make sure you're over the line.

Retro/Grade is a good cheapie if you need to be pushed over. Interesting premise. Enjoying it a lot.

It didn't, it showed as expired when the one month would of run out, and gave me an error message of expired every time I tried to open it. Starting the download and then canceling out after the "activating game" phase and reset the expiration date ok though.

Yeah, that's how it works. It's a chore to do though when you've been a member from day 1 and have to refresh a bunch of games.

i already own allstars for both vita and ps3, but id be happy if it were with igc. i could flip both to gamestop quick and get some back. also i bought used(got lucky with disk benefits vita version) but no online pass for ps3 version, so i couldnt get the plat. doh. fun lil game.

and cave for free? that would be awesome. didnt that just come out. glad i didn't buy it. all speculation, but that seemed spot on.

and spec ops is also super awesome. loved that game.
