Will Firmware 2.4 Make Super Stardust HD a Top Seller?

If you haven't picked up Super Stardust HD yet, it's a one heck of a good shooter. It flew under the radar and is one of the better PSN games out there. Sony announced that Super Stardust HD will be the first game to receive Trophy support, literally within hours of the firmware v2.4 release. With gamers clamoring to be the first to get their Trophies, will sales of the game spike this week?

I think you and many others my friend. Super Stardust gonna be an overnight success. Great move by Sony.

chasegamez3819d ago

this game is off the hook

drunkpandas3819d ago

Yeah this is a great game to begin with. A lot of people missed out on it, especially those who just got PS3's. Definitely worth the purchase.

Drekken3819d ago

I have the game, but I will be buying the addon tomorrow!

drunkpandas3819d ago

No buying needed... it's a free update to the game to add trophy support. All you have to do is fire up the game and download the update and you're golden.

I think he was referring to the HD addon that is on the PSN now. At least, that's what I think he meant, maybe.

PSTAVY3819d ago

I had already planned on buying it but once they showed the video with trophies for it yesterday I bought it.

Seraphim3819d ago

it's a solid game once you get into it. At first I thought it sucked but a few months later I decided to check it out again, and really got into it. Now it's easily my favorite PSN title. I can't wait for the trophies to be implemented so I can play it again. It's about time to sit down w/ an arcade title so this gives me fuel to actually do it...

As for the topic at hand. I think having trophies will certainly help sell the game to those who haven't bought it yet. Not that they should have to have a reason to buy this great arcade game but it'll certainly persuade some to. ;)

LJWooly3819d ago

I would recommend this game to anyone who hasn't played it yet, it really is a fantastic game, and my personal favourite PSN game.

I am curious as to how long we begin to see the first Trophy Whores popping up? lol

drunkpandas3819d ago

My guess is minutes after the firmware is released when they keep checking for the Super Stardust HD update. Haha

Chubear3819d ago

Well when you consider the flood of ex-360 fans that the PS3 gets jumpin off and playing beyond every couple of months, I'd say there will be ALOT of new PS3 gamers from the 360 side that will certainly eat this up like candy cause it's even better than what they initially had.

AznSniper3819d ago

I'm considering purchasing it as well. But I'm waiting for the PSN cards to come because credit cards won't work for me.

drunkpandas3819d ago

They're slowly leaking out into stores. I'm surprised Sony hasn't gotten them out there full force into Walmart, Best Buy, etc.

taz80803819d ago

The mythical PSN cards that are like unicorns to find.

Nitrowolf23819d ago

there on Ebay but im not paying $60 bucks for a $20 dollar card
i hope i find them at the retailers near me

uckitsayitchbay3819d ago

You don't need a credit card to put money in the ps wallet all you need it paypal and the paypal plugin/ is what i use for wallet. it generates a one time or multiple use mastercard number and exp date and the money just comes out of your paypal account which is tied to my regular SAVINGS account(sorry but a friend tried to tell me you needed checking for paypal grrr he was so sure he was right to) so just generate a multi use card write down the number and exp date and use that in account management on the ps3..

Well, I have it and I recommend it. Great game. It rocks. I will have SSHD Trophies soon.


fiercescuba3819d ago

How fast until someone gets the Platinum trophy? 5-6 hrs tops?

drunkpandas3819d ago

No platinum trophy in this one. Small scale games can't get a platinum, only large scale (ie. disc-based or big download games like Warhawk, GT5:P, etc)
