PSBlog - "Hi Everyone – It’s time for the weekly PlayStation Store Update."
Hey Sony, Where the hell is Dead Nation?
I'm pretty sure it's sometimes between nov-dec bro, it's still being beta tested as far as I know right now.
Got home in time for the KZ3 beta. I was refreshing the PSN page non-stop and dl'd the theme as soon as it popped up. You know what, plus is actually worth it. I regret only getting the 3 month plan. I already got two full games and I've had plus less than 12 hours. Totally plan on going for the 12 month plan when my three month plan expires. If you can put aside the whole "teh pluz is tryingz to be likez teh Live Goldz," you'll see that Plus gives you some great stuff for free or a fraction of the price. I'll never buy a PSN game again because it'll probably come my way down the line via plus.
I signed up last week when EU got updated with the Fallout 3 DLC hoping we would get it, on top of the KZ3 Beta, and we didn't. So that blows, but I'm sure I'll get plenty of content out of the $ I spent, and I was one of the first to post on the update page, so hopefully I got into the beta. I don't get why we wouldn't get the Fallout DLC though...At least I got New Vegas to hold me over, hopefully next month we'll see it
I was hoping for the Fallout 3 DLC too. Can I create a Europe account and get the DLC with my Plus account or would that require me purchasing another Plus account? Kinda bites but oh well. Guess I'll have to cop New Vegas afterall. So far it's Mass Effect 1 &2 on 360 and Fallout NV on PS3. Not sure when I'll get to Bayonetta or Dark Siders.
@Lifendz, yeah I'm in the same predicament. Sadly though, you are accurate in saying that you would need a separate PS+ account for EU in order to get the content. I really do hope we get it soon, because I haven't and won't be paying for the F3 content. I rented New Vegas today and have been playing through that, but I won't be buying it because it inevitably will be getting a GOTY edition by next year with all DLC included. As for the other games you mentioned, I have to say I was thoroughly surprised by Bayonetta. I was very skeptical when I first bought it, but it was a very fun experience that didn't take itself too serious, and had a decent amount of challenge and character progression. I own Darksiders as well, though admittedly haven't found time to get back to it with all the games coming out recently. Also, another game I finally got around to recently was Nier. It was surprisingly good, and I'd recommend checking it out if you enjoy Action-RPGs.
I was literally in the first fifty to download that sucker. I was sitting there refreshing the store, and BOOM. I had practiced (while I waited) on how to click an item, press down, and hit x to where it highlighted download. I hit rate, and it said 13 people have rated so far.
Hope I was quick enough to download the Killzone theme.
Me three. Going to be tough. 5000 BETA spots split between US and Canadian PSN plus members.
When I downloaded the theme about 35-40 minutes ago, they were at around 1400 ratings, now they're over 2100 ratings on the theme. I'm hoping I managed to get in too, but it's tough to tell without every one of the downloads giving a rating.
Man, I'm not getting home from work for like another hour or so. I really wished they PS+ "Auto Download" feature worked, then I would already have this when I get home since I have it set to update at 5pm. Oh well, looks like I get screwed out of another beta. I would have gladly traded my Dead Space 2 beta for this one.
I heard it took about 25 minutes for all 10,000 passes to be downloaded. I think, basically if you managed to download it then you're in.
Downloaded my kz3 theme :)
Is it a dynamic theme? I hope it becomes available to non plus members soon.
nah its not dynamic
see yal in the betya tee heee! Playststion plus ftw!
yeah same here was 4:18 in Los Angeles when I got it and about 150 rating :)
haha, same time for me to, around 7:18. When I grabbed it only 35 ratings were given. So heres hoping I'm in.
Killzone 3 beta theme I downloaded it when it was at 100 Ratings (which was about 7 min ago), now its over 900 now to wait till the 25th
same here, the theme actually disappeared for a little while then came back so maybe 5000 was reached then...well here's hoping.
Awesome hope to see ya all there!
Woot got the theme!
... PS+ Members still aren't getting anything that's actually good.. or worth their membership cost
Oh quit whining. You pay $50, you get way more than that in discounts and a few betas, and access to Qore. You aren't paying for online like some people are so if you don't like it, just cancel you subscription -__-
... Where did I say that I was a PS+ Member..? :)
The stuff that I've downloaded for free so far has been worth it. It all comes to whats worth it to you does not mean its worth it for me.
Then why are you talking? I'm really happy with plus...money well spent
Then how can you talk about ps + if you don't have it ? This is you "Yeah I don't like pie even tho I have never tried it"
Actually, I'm very satisfied with PS+, though I can't speak for everybody.
Really? I have numerous downloads... Around 5-10 new Avatars. 15 or so new Themes (most Dynamic). Numerous games...ex: Wipeout HD, Pinball HD, Burn Zombie Burn. Got to play AC Brotherhood Beta and hopefully KZ3 beta. Fallout 3 DLC... O ya...I totally don't see anything "worth their membership cost". *points at blatant sarcasm*
Well if you AREN'T a PS+ member then how do YOU know they aren't getting anything good or worth their membership cost? There are people that have been downloading the free stuff alone excluding the discounted stuff that are more than happy with the amount of stuff they've been getting. All you're doing is speaking out of OPINION. Not FACT. And with you NOT being a PS+ member you shouldn't have much to gripe about in the first place
The twItter KZ3 beta, I was the first person to tweet for SCEA. Hopefully I get chosen in.
I was in the top 200 because when I rated the theme, I was number 143 :)
It showed only 2 ratings prior to my rating :D
436 so I think I'm golden... When do we find out ?
October 25th I believe an email will be sent out
That does not make sense. I'm not trying to be a downer but not everyone rates what they download or purchase on PSN so I would not use the amount of people that has rated it as a gauge as where you are in line. With that being said its going to be awful tough to get in this BETA. Thats 5000 BETA spots split between US and Canadians PSN plus members. Good luck to all of us!!
I would say if you were under 1000, you should be good. Probably 1 in 5 rated. :)
I wished the playstation store showed the number of downloads for a item. BTW what did the KZ3 theme look like?
LMFAO. Great question. I should go look at it =/ I totally forget to look @ all the themes i d/l. I just keep it @ the warhawk theme (imo the best one out)
its a stupid theme, but its for the cause. The Halloween dynamic theme is cool though. AND Oddworld is here so everyone can play the greatest game ever made!!
i think i totally got in the Beta . i got in the store when they had just tweeted about it (less Than one minute Ago) i mean come on xD and dead nation and the trial for tomb raider seem to be good
I got the theme at 418 pst. It had a rating of 600. Hopefully I get in. Psn: Seraphemz
34 When I downloaded the theme
PSN+ finally netted me a game that I didnt already own(Burn Zombie Burn) and got my KZ3 Beta theme(heres hoping I get in). Its also GiantBombcast Tuesday, its a rare but rainy Los Angeles day, I'm on vacation and everything is GREAT!
hopefully I get ,,, refreshed the ps store every 10 seconds and got it the second I saw it and grabbed it,,, then it disappeared for about a minute b4 it reappeared ,,, by then it had like a 430 rating... I called out of work cause I threw my back out so I've been sitting around all day waiting for the update..... AC2,DS2 and now KZ3 beta in a matter of weeks ... ps+ is the shit... I also saw abes addysey in the ps1 section for free b4 the actual update appeared
i hope i get in the rating was like 854 when i got it
:( I didn't get the theme. Does it disappear when enough people have gotten it? Also, I can't wait to play Costume Quest!!! :D
Costume Quest is awesome.
I wish they would bring Xenogears to the North American store
Went 2 buy my lil bro b- day gift dl the theme @ 9 pm Chicago time. It's kool though I was in the kz2 beta and I gave no feedback so it should be for the pol who give GG bug/glitch reports.IMO the beta nor really much better then the final product
We won't find out if we actually got in until Oct 25th when they send out the emails, RIGHT??. It would have been much nicer if they had 10,000 for US and Canada.
