  • Cool stuff
  • Good week for PSN! Great things this time around!
  • Wow Burnout Paradise is only $8 now, I got it free with PS+ but that seems really cheap if you didn't have a PAL account.
  • Too bad I don't own a Move ot play the new Ape Escape game. But even if I did, I prefer the old school run and chase them down gameplay over this. No offense.
  • 'The Sexy Ladies of SHOW Magazine Dynamic Theme' - I wonder what that will be like *gigity gigity*
  • whoa, burnout paradise at $8 bucks... am really considering it...
  • @4: None taken, not by me at least. And I agree: I have a Move so I got the demo last week. It was pretty boring. Monkeys come at you and you just swing the move (net) at them when they are close. Once all the monkeys in a room leave, your character moves on rails to a new room and it just repeats. I would like to see if the later parts of the game get more challenging or have more variety, but not for $20.
  • No Galaga Legion DX? Screw this.
  • I'm somewhat amused that pretty much half of everything listed has to do with a racing game
  • Are we not getting the rest of the Final Fantasy avatars? I saw someone using Cloud and we don't have that one if I remember correctly. I guess I'll hold out another week. I love how I'm anticipating avatars more then game releases. ;)
  • Oh Capcom you trolling fucks. Nice Mega Man Powered Up avatars and themes you had put up today. Now how about you get your heads out of your asses, fix the "technical difficulties" you claimed you were having getting the game to run digitally instead of from a UMD (which smells like a lot of BS considering the Japanese version runs from the PS Store just fine), and then put Mega Man Powered Up the actual fucking GAME on the Playstation Store to buy. Dicks.
  • @11: Agreed, but what I really want is downloadable Lumines. Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to happen.
  • @12: Maybe that game's developers or publishers will be super nice and give you some avatars and themes to tide you over while they're not releasing that game. Unless they already did. Then maybe you'll get more.
  • Wow burnout is like what £3.50 on t us store hope we get that offer I miss playing I and my + expired, itS still £24 at the moment but hopefully we will get a reduction too :)
  • MUHAHAHA I refused to buy the NfS:HP DLC when it was released, mainly because of the high price. Now patience finally pays off...
  • I was expecting something good for the ps+ birthday update... hopefully EU will be better
  • Bomberman Ultra. Not exactly the game to get people to continue their Plus subscription.
  • Lots of dlc this week for my racing games :)
  • To all US members check the EU update lmfao now who here thinks ANY 1 would buy red faction Armageddon for £57.99? Not sure what that equates to but you Must be talking $90, we got no burnout or need or speed discounts :( just the sheer entertainment of stupid pricing!
  • Can anyone tell me, if they know, how long in general the Sales usually last? I want the rest of the Burnout stuff, but don't get paid until next week Friday. I don't want to miss out. :(
  • @20 usually more than a week (probably 2-4 weeks) ... if it's 1 week they normally warn you. You could ask people on boards over at Criterion's website how long the sale lasts - probably easier to get any answer from them than Sony...
  • Back to the future episode 5 dealyed again...
