PS Blog: Hi Guys, as promised we have some little mid month exclusive extras for all you Plus members.
TOMB RAIDER!!!!!!!!!!!! But £8 is kinda steep >__>
WTF is wrong with Sony?? This is in no way a good deal, I mean £8?!?!?! I am only willing to pay that much for FF games because of the amount of value in them.
I think you mean S-E since they have the right to the TR series
That's kind of lame. Please note, Sony, people really don't care about one or two week timed exclusive access. They want new features and free content.
how is it timed exclusive? this is a PSone classic. 360 won't and can't get this game if they wanted to.
Meaning timed PS+ exclusive. On topic, these aren't hurting anyone so I don't see why anyone would complain about anything extra.
@goflyakite: It's not really much of anything. It doesn't matter to me that it comes two weeks early, but I also don't consider it newsworthy at all. Their post on the EU blog makes this out to be a big deal. It just isn't. That's what I'm responding to.
@gaffyh okay then go ask MS to sell it to you to play on your 360 then! Oh wait... you cant.. Sony don't price the PS1 games anyway they just give a RRP (retail recommended price) it's upto devs to choose the price.
Wow, what an exclusive deal! 2 weeks before anyone else! For a ps1 game! On a serious note I will probably actually buy this. In 2 weeks time.
Tomb Raider, you have got to be kidding me. Tomb Raider was an awesome game, I played it when it first came out on my PS1 and was entranced for days. It was also one of the first few 3D accelerated games on the market when I bought a Monster 3D card for my computer back in the days. The graphics totally blew my mind. But it's 2010, now it looks like ass.
true, plus although not a strict remake there is tomb raider anniversary edition.
A 14 year old game, where do I sign up.......not.
Play up Pompey;)
and pay up Pompey Taxman is awaiting...
Good to see PS+ EU steps up and listens to its users for not having weekly updates the first month like PS+ USA has them. At least they're right on it. What its still lacking in, is matching the items (numbers and quality) that get rebates. Its sort of nice to get some content weeks before its official release like a PS1 game Tomb Raider, but on the other hand... I'd rather have 20, 30 or 50% off Fat Princess, Hustle Kings or any other big game on PSN store. I am not even asking for more free content, to release through the month although that would also be win, but a few bucks here and there to save on other stuff I might just want to buy would be win win, for both users as Sony. PS+ users constantly have the feeling of having advantage having/using PS+, Sony will see more sales on hot games and boost sales that way they wouldn't have gotten otherwise. @ Corrwin (below) Ah, an ignorant American, we love those in Europe, indeed what the guy below you says, you obviously haven't read what the coming months brings for PS+ EU: "The EU PS+ is gonna get the whole 3rd season of Sam and Max, Abe's Odyssey for free in September." PS+ USA doesn't have it. Sam and Max is like worth what in total 20 to 25 Euro.
I think EU has been getting better free stuff. got LBP for free(and forever) if you gt 1 yr subscription. vs 3month extra for US. wipeout HD both in the first month, (which i already owned) Zen pinball vs Critter crunch (I already owned critter crunch, so EU won for me, because I was going to buy zen, but forgot.) sam and max vs ? (never played sam and max, so yay!) so far... 45/89 NZD paid back once sam and max comes out. fully paid off if you count LBP, ps1 games and the minis.
bad nough you guys got the best beer but now this!!! guess we'll jus hafta settle for having hotter women n good teeth XD
He guys! We know you've been envious of the US PSN+ because they get so much cooler stuff for free or discounted, so we're happy to announce Tomb Raider, not for free, or with a discount, but you get to buy it 2 weeks earlier than non-PSN+ members. Yeah! That's right! You get a 15 year old game 2 weeks before anybody else! And you get the privilege of paying £8 for the sucker! Wow! I'll probably still subscribe in a couple of months, maybe then they'll stop being so cheap and actually have something worth the price.
The EU PS+ is gonna get the whole 3rd season of Sam and Max, Abe's Odyssey for free in September.
That would almost make it worth :D
oh please us has sucked compared to you guys you got LPB for free quit cryin.
You get free items weekly. And 3 months free extra subscription if you pay for a year. Compare that to LBP which you get if you pay for a year. Yeah, we definitely have it better :|
***You get free items weekly. And 3 months free extra subscription if you pay for a year. *** Doesn't matter how often the US gets them, the end result is the same. 2 free minis titles a month. 1 free PSOne title a month. 1 free PSN title a month.
I mean if the game was free it would be a good deal but Tomb Raider (which is over a decade old), 2 weeks early isn't anything special.
wow,just wow. if i wanted that game id buy it,i dont need to get it free with some gimmick plus subscription fee service.
no ones forcing you to buy plus+ . Its just a special for those who have it and are interested in buying the game.
why would i pay for playstation live when multiplayer on ps sucks mostly due to the fact no one chats and 2 bad servers......only games that were fun to play online was demon souls and uncharted(s) but we used the xbl party chat to talk to each other where is last guardian?
-Most of the games do not use servers, players host their games, on ps3 and 360. -There is a mic in almost every 360 bundle but a lot of 360 do not use it. -Why are talking about Last Guardian here?
last guardian?....i dunno cause its gonna be amazing and i want it
what is playstation live ? btw. i think multiplayer on xbl sucks BECAUSE everybody chats all the time. wtf has the last guardian to do with any of this?
ever heard of mute?
[email protected] ps3 has servers, xbox don't (and it's better most of the time than p2p) Real gamers all have mics (wireless !), on all online games (but you have to buy a ps3 and have some friends to verify this). and nobody is paying for playing online with ps3, unlike the sheeps playing call of duty and halo most of the time.
xbox has servers. why do people think they dont?
Not everyone will agree with me but I actually like that Sony decided to not include a microphone with the PS3. It forces certain age groups to choose between a game or a mic. Silence is always better than yelling, high pitched swearing, and constant racism.
It really starts to be a pain in the ass to have to mute people ALL THE EFFING TIME. In one match of COD the players change. If every single new player has a mike you have to pause and go and mute them unless you want to listen to him yelling cause he's beeing owned. Why is this so hard to understand?
So you need to chat and I hate to chat. Who is right? Servers are better in first party games and 3rd party games are exactly as "bad" as on xbl. Why do you feel the need to lie? All you have is chat which not all people like. I'll take the dedicated srvers in 1st party games over anything else. I want to play flawlessly. I think the importance of chat has everything to do with your age or your status (single, married, parent, child). I don't think the chat is so important if you have your own kids and are 25+ yo. You might even avoid needless chatting. I know I do.
At least they offer something for the subscription...
Waste of money.
because wipeout hd, little big planet, sam & max season 3 +++ is not worth a couple bucks...?
it's stupid to spend money like that for PS+ for minuscule discounts
@mista t If your gonna save money by doing it why not? PS+ is for people who buys games at PSN so they get more for their buck.
… And there was me thinking that they'd give it to ‘em for free lol.. Of course not. They really should do though, PS+ members deserve the game for free for being ripped off on buying PS+ in the first place.
throw me a ps1 bull crap & expect me to be excited,do they think we are like halo fans ! they must do next month we get sam & max sooo looking forward to next month.....NOT :( unless ps+ improves a lot i will not subscribe for another year...no chance
Would of got this but 10 euro not a chance
Do they not realize it would be better to sell a shit load of copies for 5 euro rather than a handful for 10 euro Way to GREEDY
This is a joke we can buy stuff two weeks early !! Is so sorry i bought the full years subscription it has been a total waste so far.
I haven't got PS+ due to it not having anything I want. The games they have given away so far I already have. I do agree this is a joke, two weeks early for a PS1 game nearly everyone has played, and most people still have it. If I wanted Tomb Raider I could buy it cheaper elsewhere. I think PS+ is a good idea, but c'mon, give people something good that they want. Also the Mafia 2 demo, I had to wait a full 24 hours to play it 'cause I haven't got PS+. That was just stupid. I am a PS3/PC owner and PS+ is just not worth it to me.
I'm confused, why isn't this free for PS+ subscribers? I feel like I'm just wasting my time with this service. The whole point of PS+ is to be able to download things at no extra charge, and now they're charging more for this game than any other PS1 classic.
£8 for a psone game is very steep i cant get £1 for any psone games that ive tried trading in countless of times
£8 for PSONE CLASSIC. hugely over priced.COMM'ON SONY GET A GRIP. most people should know by now that all playstation 3's play playstation one games. just not ps2. so why pay £8 for a downloadable when you could find the orignal gem on disc for couple quid for less. this is way over priced and as the ps3 has a compatability of doing playstation games on disc. i think all psx classics on psn should be really low priced.
I know it's techincally not Sonys fault for the pricing since it's a third party game, but they have control over what's put into the PS+ service, and they could use at least SOME of the money they've already recieved from PS+ users to actually give people something they want.
I hate that it is soooo cheap in America and it is soooo expensive here T.T especially since Lara Croft is English - she pays more in her home territory!!! :O
You can get Tomb Raider 1 and 2 on PC from Cex for £1 together.
New to PSN? This must be in Europe. In America we've had TR on PSN for a while now. I bought all 4 TR games available on PSN.
Of course it's Europe, whenever you see an article about something awful happening within the Playstation Store, it's going to be the EU store.
Hyped and destined to sink! XD
PSN+ is much better in EU then the US.
shhhhhhhhhhshhhhhhh dont say that, *whispers* your gonna start World War 3....
Sorry but Id rather not buy a 14 year old game with rubbish graphics
you can just buy tomb raider anniv. which is a remake for 1 as far as i know
Really? They are charging 8 dollars for Tomb Raider?! I can go on Ebay and get it for a buck, c'mon sony.
Seriously I could not agree more, PS+ timed exclusivity (by that I mean 2 whole weeks) aside... I feel borderline insultive that any company would charge this much for a PS1 game.
Developers Core Design (1995 - 2006) Crystal Dynamics (2006 - present) Publishers Eidos Interactive (1996 - 2009 Square Enix (2009 - present) I don't really think Sony is the one deciding on the price. They had nothing to do with TR. All they did was they manufactured the platform. Or am I wrong? Is there something I don't know about?
PS+ Sucks, Sony needs to step it up
http://www.penny-arcade.com... Sums it up. Not to throw any more hate on the fire, ive looked in to PS+ but all this "free" people continue to talk about comes with a monthly "fee". Its a great program if your actively buying content on PSN, however I already own most of the titles I care for and sure beta invites would be neat but nothing beats the real game. I guess im one of the few who can wait. But more power to those who enjoy PS+
no thanks. I think with subscription they should offer the game for free, not 8 dollars. Rip off.
So glad I don't pay for this garbage
to think it was a big mistake .. i think want my money back .. for shame Sony, for shame
