            1. Don’t know who’s going to be 1st to make a comment about the continuing lack of Auditorium HD, damn those publishers & the SCEE hurdles.

              On the positive its all about the PS+ content this week for me.

              • Same here, just the PS+ content for me too.

              • Is there any info about why this still hasnt come to EU. This cant just be down to localisation anymore can it?

              • I too am vexed about Auditorium, thought Chime might make up for it. it was a resounding non.

              • Oh come on cc_star – i think we could have guessed who is going to be first to mention it ;)

              • I’m both disappointed and frustrated at the continued delay of its arrival.
                It’s so far beyond the joke now they might well have released it on April 1st and had a jolly old chuckle at us poor saps. Ridiculous.

            2. There’s a lot of best start downloading. I knew being a PS+ member would pay off! :)

            3. The permanent price reductions – Are they PSP games?
              Never heard of any of ’em!

              • minis and one psp game.

                • Ah ok thanks – I won’t get excited then as I don’t have a PSP & don’t do minis! :)

            4. Wait…so the Socom beta is now avaivable to everyone? If so, sweet!

              • Expect a lot of updates before you get into a game. I physically gave up after downloading the beta and then waiting an hour and a bit for the updates to download lol.

                • Not doing it if it’s Crysis 2 all over again with all the hiccups and errors before I can get into an match. Not, cool.

                • Crysis 2 is fine now, it was just the beta. Download it over night, should be fine.

                • beta from psn is 450mb’s then after that’s installed there is an in game update of 1.5gb, just leave it over night or when you’re not using your ps3.

                  it’s certainly worth it.

            5. With the exception of a BlueToad avatar there is nothing jumping out at me this week. Definately a good thing as I’ve just bought a new car so I’m skint and have waaaay too many games to play through as it is lol :) Just out of interest, does anyone know if the new KZ3 DLC come with trophies? I’m quite fond of my 100% completion and would hate to see it go… :(

              • Dungeon Hunter: Alliance looks like a great game.

              • All of the old KZ2 packs came additional trophies so I would say so! I wish there was an option to only display the original games percentage and not DLC!

            6. Karoshi is brilliant on mobile devices, if you don’t have it, try that mini. It’s very different

              • Do you know if its different at all to the original Game Maker version?

            7. Loads for me esp PS+ stuff :-D

            8. Is the Playstation Network down for anyone? I just purchased the PS+ for another 15 months and it wont sign me back in again?

              • eu.playstation.com is undergoing essential maintenance and is currently unavailable. In the meantime, you can visit the websites below. I guess that has something to do with it!

              • Looks like it. If I had to guess I’d say anonymous is at it again.

            9. I think just the PS+ for me. It’s alot lol. Need to make some more memory space.

              • I might not download anything today just in case something happens and/or it will take an awful long time downloading like last week and CoD Maps before.

                • is PSN down for anyone here? i cant seem t sign in and i have reset my router already

                • @phantom5813
                  afraid ^ CC & Bladesteel are prob right
