Update on the PS3′s “Remote Download Feature” Expected “Very Soon,” Long-Term EU PS+ Games Changing

Even though there was some interesting results reported on the EU PS Blog about the Instant Game Collection poll they held back in February (the RPG and Action/Adventure genres received roughly 17,000 votes each of the 73,000 votes cast), there was some more interesting news in the comments.

I hope they change in North America too.

Yeah, They've been on there for nearly a year. Although they'll likely change to big games that most people have already bought. Hence why they are big games.

I know what you mean, it feels like the big games they put up are older games that have hit thier sales marks already and newer games are like a bonus to get people exposed to some other genres they normally wouldn't have looked at. Good marketing, bring in new customers with older heavy hitter games and expose your current customers to more obscure titles so mabey they buy dlc or the next franchise installment.

Trendy, why are you getting disagrees for that?!

Sounds like a lotta N4G-ers have prejudices against America.

Meh. I don't care what they say. I love my country.

I just meant that I'd like to see some of the games that have been free for a year change to something new.

When is sony going to fix the PSN Store? Since they updated it the loading times have doubled. The UI is atrocious.
Ducky  +   951d ago
That's why I just use the web store to browse/buy items.

Only time I actually go there with the PS3 is to download something I already own.
It's not that bad overall.
Conzul  +   951d ago
The store would be fine if it were silky-smooth and fast. There's nothing wrong with the UI.
Unfortunately, it's not fast on PS3.

Searching sucks and sorting new content is more tedious than it can be even if it wasn't slow as hell. I mean I can only sort by one category and its annoying.

I want to go to the store and check latest releases without having to trudge through 100 songs/dlc/themes or random crap all listed individually until finally reaching vids, demos and games.

My downloads are actually faster since update maybe you need better internet connection

He said nothing about download times...don't be a turd. He's talking about loading times of the store in general, it's cumbersome/poorly designed.

quick question:

Once Sony remove these titles (InFamous 2, LBG2 and Motorstorm Apocalypse) from the Instant Game Collection, would I still be able to play them if I have them downloaded to my PS3 and still have a PS+ subscription?

@mac_sparrow: good to hear, thanks man! I've only been a member for a month, ever since I got my PS3 and started gaming full-time again, so I had no clue if I'd be able to keep playing them if they weren't available on the IGC anymore. Good thing I have a 500GB HDD :D

Yup, you'll also get access to more titles. Win, win.

If your subscription ended, all the games you put in your download list will stay(No need to download and cancel like what some people do) but you won't be able to play them until you renew. So put all ps+ games in your download list. You may play them one day.
HyperBear  +   951d ago
Don't all of my games I download through the PS Store/PSN go into my download list automatically? When I log into my PSN account on the internet, it shows everything I've downloaded through the network and if it's a game, trailer, demo, etc and on what day.

Or is there another download list I'm missing?
Salooh  +   951d ago
A lots of people think downloading is what makes the games go to download list . You just need to put them in the cart then purchase them then it go to download list.

I don't like to download what i don't use so i can have space when i need it. Just wanted to make it clear and easy so you don't need to go out the store and go cancel or stop what you won't download in that moment :). Always put ps+ games in download list even if you don't want to download them..

@HyperBear, I don't have a Vita yet but i've still been adding those games to my queue incase the day arrives that I get one. Soon as you grab them they become listed as 'purchased'. And you can choose to download them whenever you want.
Salooh  +   951d ago
I don't understand this '' Remote Download Feature ''. It will let me download games from pc and then transfer to the ps3 ?. Or it will let me start the ps3 and download from pc?. (Like what they promised for ps4)

IT just means that when you buy games from the online store, they'll automatically start downloading on the PS3.
