Always on GMT time... always. <_<
why not 16pm-00 for US ?
US isnt whole world!
Yes it is, don't you watch the news! lol.
I'll just continue playing the brilliant LA Noire while its down, or watch some awesome old school 70-80s kung-fu flicks to pass the time.
Holy shit, I'm doing the same! High-Five!
Well you my friend get a bubble. Yea was watching 8 diagram pole fighter, and invincible shoalin yesterday. Two absolute CLASSICS!!! Also who the hell can hate on a great game like LA Noire, or awesome old school kung fu flicks? This site makes my head hurt sometimes.
well this sucks
What's GMT time?
Greenwich mean time.
spacific time or pacific time
My thoughts exactly
my god, I thought the people on N4G were dense, but not this dense.
...I'm american, all i know are my own time zones, i dont memorize the other ones.
I would hope so.
AWESOME...if the store comes back today :)
That better be the reason they turn it off.
how many hours left lol?
I think around 4 1/2 hours. Basically around 12pm-8pm EST and 9am-5pm PST Actually it might be an hour difference as I'm not sure if it's British summer time in which case I think everything will be and hour later...or earlier im not sure how it works. If it is BST it'll be around 11am-7PM EST and 8am-4pm PST...Which I think means it'll be going down in about 3 1/2 hours. Heres a link for GMT time http://wwp.greenwichmeantim...
No motorstorm apocalypse tonight then :( Still, I'm looking forward to getting lbp and dead nation.
I don't yet have inFamous, so that is an obvious download. However, I am still undecided on whether to get Wipeout for the Fury expansion pack or get Dead Nation. Either way it is a win for me.
Should I get LBP or Dead Nation? I can't decide.
lol i can't decide either but i want 2 free games, infamous since its the best by default but i m not sure about LBp or any others i have been told DN is really repetitive but LBp seems pointless in a way. enemies seems pointless the orbs seem pointless but it is probably my second, my favorite game of all time is SMB 3 and its hard to beat and i m not sure lbp is even a challenge, i played LBp 2 demo and i was like really whats the point,
Dead Nation is an overhead zombie game, its going to be repetitive of course lol. As for LBP its not about the actual gameplay, its about creating levels and playing other peoples levels. The core games levels are a bit bland ill agree. However the DLC makes it even more fun with the paint gun and what not.
That's a tuff call honestly, I've played both and I''d be a bit biased telling you this but I prefered Dead Nation (but I lovee killing zomies) only bad thing about it is me and my buddy beat the game fairly quickly. It's about 10 missions that can be beat in less than 20 mins each so around so it'll take abour 3-4 hours to beat (depending on your team mate and difficuly settings). There is some replayablity for it though especially if you're a trophy collector. Some of the cons for it though is there is no match making the only way to play co-op is to invite someone from your friends list, and it didn't have voice chat when It launched but I do believe it has been patched in since it launched. The thing about LBP is though you'll have over 2 million player made levels so you'd never have to play the same level twice so it's a pretty sweet deal. Another good thing about it is you can play 4 player co-op online or offline. It also has a level creator if you decided to try and be creative. Some of the downsides though it soemtimes it'll take a while to load into games (at least it was for me but it could of been patched). If you have a girl though who is a somewhat casual gamer she would prolly love it as every girl I've ever showed it to pretty much got hooked on it so it'd be a good way to spend some time with your girl while still being able to game (win win). And like what soilder said half the fun is the player made levels because some put in some serious effort and you'll get stuff like God of War themed levels, mario themed levels, I even played one that was a halo themed level and a few MetalGearSolid themed levels. I noticed you said SMB 3 is your all time favorite game (I can relate, my and my bro's would hang out in my garage attic for hours playing that game...while having herbal snacks *wink*) so I tell you right now from one SMB3 fan to another it won't live up to it (not that any other mario game has) but it can get a bit challenging SOMETIMES but playing with a friend or more than one is preferable as it can be pretty fun as some puzzles in levels require more than 1 person (you don't have to do them though so you can play all lone wolf style). If you have more than 1 account though you might be able to get all 5 games as long as Sony doesn't try to take any special measures for it...and even if they do I'm sure you have a close buddy who is gonna take advantage of the free games so just ask him to get the other ones and see if you guys can gameshare them.
LBP will probably give you much more replay value, and it is an amazing game. LBP2 is even better, what with the hugely improved story mode and vast toolset.
I'm going with Dead Nation simply because it's co-op my my friend Mike is going to get it too. I would get Dead Nation if you have a friend to play it through with. Little Big Planet is cool if you mostly play alone. Sorry if this doesn't help.
Well, I was planning in playing through Dead Nation solo lol. I tried LBP before and I wasn't a huge fan of it.
I read on a review that Dead Nation "was made for co-op play" take that with a grain of salt. The main thing for me tho, is I think I could play Dead Nation sober and I really enjoyed the lbp demo when I had been drinking. So that's probably a sign ya know?
Would be nice but the timing SUCKS. I admit i'm new to PSN so maybe this is the norm for them but to take it off throughout the entire prime time of Europe then bring it back just as the yanks come home from work/school.. kind of sucks a bit.
hope they do it on time...
Just never logout,I will be leaving the PS3 on tonight just to keep signed in.
LBP and Infamous for me
So.....that would be about 7 pm Wednesday eastern time right?
That should be around the time it coms back up, around 7-8pm that is if everything is on schedule...which I hope it is and I hope they give us our Ps+ right from the get go with some decent games or dlc discounted,
Well,I'm playing through LA Noire right now so I don't mind the downtime.
psn, it only does maintenance. lol im not hating im just saying.
It be cool if they bring the store back up by today or tomorrow morning
Maintenance. ya kno, something thats good. Correct me if im wrong but xbox360 does it too...well..I hope they do O_o that system needs CONSTANT maintenence....whoops, noticed I spelled maintenance wrong after doing some maintenance. LOL
I guess I can wait one more day for the store to come back up. I hope it has a new look.
PSN store goes offline again, when was it back on ? its been off for weeks now, did it sneek on without telling me, getting fed up here at least I have Steam.
Oh yes Steam is fantastic.
