that's a lil rough. you can get dark souls for that price can't ya?
im not complaining, i love that game so much, but for a game that is heavily invested with multiplayer elements and twice they have said they are shutting down only to keep the servers going... hopefully this means they will keep the servers on longer. id love to start over and go noob hunting ;)

Last night four titles from the current Instant Game Collection reverted to trial status for me, (Payday, DD:Neon, Dungeon Defenders, and Scot Pilgrim). My PS+ is active so it wasn't that big of a deal as they are all still currently offered so I was able to just re download the unlock for the full game for each. Still, it was annoying. Anybody else ever have this happen?

They plan to keep the servers up indefinitely. http://blog.us.plays...#comment-797490

i got plus primary for the discounts. i'm going to stop downloading the free games i want to buy later on because plus won't let you buy previous free games you downloaded when they are discounted later on. damn i'm pissed i couldn't buy some discounted games because i already got them for "free."

Did you renew your sub since those games were first offered?

Demon Souls coming next week for $20.


Best Ps3 exclusive IMO.
I don't mean to be a prick but how is this good news at the PSN US Blog?
Since a long time ago you can buy a physical copy of this game (brand new) for $19.99 or much less at Amazon and other retailers. The PSN managers may think that we are stupid or that we live in a bubble and isolated from the rest of the world.

Why wouldn't the digital release of a beloved game be good news? More people will have access to it now, especially those that were on the fence and could never pull the trigger on a physical copy. The price is Atlus' decision to make, not the people running the PS Store, so wait for the next round of Atlus sales later this year if you want it for cheaper than that.

indefinately! that is most awesome. i havnt even played in forever but i always got disheartened when they would announce closing the servers. I hate game like lotr conquest where 1/2 the games trophies/and gameplay is never to be experienced again. that is most awesome tho. hopefully this will bring more players to the game, ps+ freebie would be great, but 20 is still awesome and to have it on the system all the time is a convenience ;)

With the Pure White world I might have to start playing my copy finally. Sounds like it will be a little easier to get a grip on out of the gate. I know some love the unrelenting difficulty but I won't mind a little relief to get going first.

Been trying to play Chronovolt. I give up with this game. The camera is bloody terrible. Wouldn't be so bad if they would patch it.

I love everything about Demon's Souls, the only think I hate about that announcement is that ridiculous price tag. I still have my physical copy (next to my Dark Souls CE), being one of the few games I haven't sale, gift or trade, so I will wait until it gets free as part of the IGC, my plus ends on Aug 2014 so time is at my side.
And sorry but my tiny winy brain still don't process that part of prefering owning digital over physical copies of the same video game.

Even in Pure White world tendency there will be plenty deaths. I remember when I experienced Pure Black and I died way more. Just don't give up and summon people when you need help. The Demon Souls Wiki will also be a big help.

$19.99 is the MSRP, which is usually where digital prices start.

I have a physical copy of Demon's Souls, but if it ever goes on sale, I'll pick it up and give my physical copy away. Fucking great game.

I've had basically zero problems with the camera. It controls perfectly fine for me. The only minor irritant is that sometimes other parts of the level block the view for a second, but they quickly fade out.

I think Chronovolt got a bum rap. Sure, it's a little derivative and a little light on content, but it does only cost $5 regularly and I'd easily give it a 7/10.

i've yet to see the pull n go in person. is the mini case large enough to hold the vita and any set of grips? i've had my eye open for a smallish case that'll fit grips as well - darn my massive hands.


I've seen it in store at Gamestop and Frys. Both had them for $20 when I looked.

As for ones that will fit the grip...The Sony carrying case is open on the sides and bottom so maybe that's a possibility? The open design won't offer complete protection but might allow you to use both the grip and the case at the same time.

The Sony travel pouch is another possibility. It has a second pocket for accessories so maybe the grip will fit in there?

Recently got a ps3 (for GTA5, Dust514), and a Vita (for travel), havnt really bought anything console related for six?+ years. Im primarely a PC gamer, i buy a lot of games, i play a lot of games. When both of my purchasing options are digital (ps3/v or pc) its so hard justifying buying anything on PSN when all of the same games on PC (usually more optimized) are so much cheaper.

Anyone have a good reason to buy digital on psn, besides playing on the big screen? Which I can do anyway, with an xbox/ps3 controller and hdmi cord from my PC.

Well it's going to come down to preferences and whatever floats your boat. Some games like Sine Mora has extra content on the PS3 and naturally you can play with other people on the PSN, but thats it.

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.

Is Lumines for $21 a good price point on the vita? I really want it but feel like it should be cheaper.

I got Lumines for about $15 or $20 on the Qubed disc for 360, meaning I got not only 2 extra games, but I got some of the Lumines DLC as well. Despite being a fun game, it feels hard to recommend at $20, let alone the original $40, for another version. I'd honestly wait to see if it goes to $15 or even $10.

Thanks Frisky. Will probably grab Eufloria for $2.50 and force myself to understand the game.

Interesting that they're giving us discounts on a lot of the games EU got for free (Arkham City, Bulletstorm, and now MK Vita). Guess we won't be getting any of those.
