How can games not have screenshots on Sony's store?  I suppose this might be a sales strategy for some ultra cheap games, but Sony should have a requirement of video and screenshots for any game listed.

 

Also, yes, I know there's probably a ton of content elsewhere like Youtube that helps on this issue, but i'm an old man looking for something to complain about today.

This is going to be my first BF sale with Sony. Are they like Microsoft and have a huge 2 week (mediocre) sale or what?

I've seen it and it's essentially a vertical Pong game that looks like generally like a tennis match.  The graphics remind me of a Sega Master System game.  

 

But you are absolutely correct.  Games need to have screenshots and a gameplay video.

This was last year's Black Friday sale on PSN.

Here's the Steam page for Timber Tennis Versus which should have better information:

https://store.steamp..._Tennis_Versus/

Unless it's a Sony-published game, I just go straight to Steam if I want to know what a game is like.

Those Rock Band songs aren't free unless you have the Rivals expansion pack.

Too much work.  Sony just lost my $1.59

 

 

 

Back in my day, for $1.59 you could ride the trolley both ways and still have money left for a movie and popcorn.

Was afraid of this.
I thought they might nerf the rewards but to completely remove them is even shittier than expected.

From the FAQ:

 

What are Passes?
Stay tuned. A new pass experience is coming soon. For more information visit the Passes page under the Earn section of Sony Rewards.
 
Will I lose any of my current pass progress?
No. We will be transitioning all of your completed Passes, and in-progress Passes to the new pass experience.
 
Will I still be earning towards my PlayStation® Passes?
Yes. All of the PlayStation® Passes that you’re eligible for will continue to progress based on your activity.

I just got an email 3 days ago about my trophy rewards so I wouldn't be too worried about it

Looks like my points total was correct on the new Sony Rewards site, I've seen some people mention it showing they had no points. I can't view my Pass activity but it did add 1000 points from a Platinum pass I finished while the site was down. Cashed in for a $20 code and it showed up in about 10 minutes. I'm guessing they're still putting the finishing touches on the site, hopefully they don't change the pass system too much because I really like it.

Yeah, but you have to transfer them onto the Vita through your PS3.

Blood Omen transfers too? Awesome. I was afraid it had licensing issues or something. Going to grab both.

Also, my rewards apparently reset. Damn.

My rewards are still there.

I don't like the slide bar to search by points range.  The lowest number is 300 and the highest is 3 MILLION and 1

 

 

 

Oh, it's much to find easier to find Playstation stuff when I click the Playstation link.  PSN money is the first thing on the screen.

Dumb question, but will Sony Rewards send a $10 gift card for 10 platinum's regardless of that "pass"?  I got my 10th on the 27th and the rewards site is showing a pending order for 1000 points on the 28th that I did not make because I don't have that many points. So, not really sure what's going on there, but I wouldn't complain.

I bought a $20 code.  They're literally mailing it to me.  Ugh.  Well, I guess it will come in handy for any Black Friday sale or at worst, I'll get it for a last minute Christmas sale.

How in the hell do you turn in platinum trophies for rewards points.

Oh crap.  My Sony Rewards email was one email, but my PSN email was a second email.  I just accidentally logged into Sony Rewards with my PSN email, and it prompted me to associate my PSN account with my Sony Rewards account.  I clicked through not thinking anything was wrong about that, but immediately realized that there was nothing in my history: no previous orders, no points earned, no trophy passes, nothing.  Because it's a "new" account under my PSN email now.  It won't let me log in with my old Sony Rewards account now.

 

Did I just screw myself?  I was on platinum #9 right before the changeover too.  UGHHHHHHH.

It's not up at the moment, but you don't turn in trophies for points. You have to enable the Rewards Passes first and the trophies you earned from then on count towards these goals, which are earned automatically as you reach them.

No, they just add the points to your account.

Yeah, they sent out surveys recently about adding more stuff to do for reward points in the future, which I assume is part of this whole overhaul of Sony Rewards.

I probably should have been more clear in my post. In that particular pass, I was only at about 5/10 platinum trophies. I got my 10th overall platinum trophy on the 27th and it says there are points pending. I was wondering if they do it regardless of the pass since it is my 10th or if it was an error. Not that I'd be complaining of this either way. Just curious if that's how it works.

They only track the trophies you earn AFTER starting a pass. Any platinums you earned before the passes were introduced do not count

That's the crappiest rewards system. I won't even sign up to support that.

Crappy?  Maybe.  All I know is that I spent money on PSN games and they gave me points that I just traded to get more money for PSN games.

Also, get this, they gave me points for playing games I already own that I traded in to get more money for PSN games.

 

I am satisfied.  It is something for nothing (since I was going to spend the money and play games anyway).

I personally loved using it in Farpoint. It’s a bit goofy looking but as long as it’s calibrated correctly it gets the job done and well worth it for the experience. I wish more games utilized it. But I personally don’t regret the purchase.

Noob question, but I've never done a digital preorder on PSN.
Is there a cutoff for when you can preorder earlier than the unlock time?

I’ve only used it on a couple of different games so far, but it’s awesome. Your best bet is to get the Firewall Zero Hour bundle. I’ve heard that game is great and it costs the same as the aim by itself. In stock at Best Buy and gcu eligible if you have it https://www.bestbuy....s=960&keys=keys
I paid $64 at Newegg for the Farpoint bundle earlier this year and have zero regrets
