    You Can Now Use Paypal to Pay on the PS3 PS Store

    Ever wanted to buy a game on the PlayStation Store but couldn't because you didn't want to use your credit card or didn't have a PSN card handy? It seems Sony has heard your pleas because they've now integrated Paypal support into the PS3 PlayStation Store. Technically, this isn't entirely new; Paypal support was integrated into the web version of the Sony Entertainment Network earlier this year, but no doubt most of us probably buy PSN games and such through our PS3 so it's a nice convenience to have. All you have to do to get to the Paypal option is click on "Add Funds" after checking out from the cart on the PlayStation Store, than you can add any amount from $5 to $150 into your SEN wallet to use on games, TV shows, movies, and more. Of course, you'll need to set up a Paypal account first if you don't already have one. Have you been waiting for Paypal to come to the PlayStation Store?
  2. This holiday season is nearing the light at the end of the tunnel and, despite being overwhelmed with quality titles, an insatiable appetite has gamers looking to the future for more “must have” titles. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, along with Bioshock Infinite, are just a few of those titles. NAMCO Bandai originally scheduled Ni No Kuni for release in 2012, but opted to bypass the crowded holiday season and focus its efforts on parting consumers with post-holiday funds. This highly anticipated collaboration between Level-5 and Studio Ghibli is tentatively planned for a January release; however, according to the Playstation Blog the first taste of Ni No Kuni in North America will be available tomorrow. The weekly Playstation Store update will not only contain the Ni No Kuni demo, but shall also include the ability to purchase Mass Effect Trilogy, Farcry 3, Uncharted: Fight For Fortune (VITA) and DJMAX Technika Tune (VITA). Playstation Plus subscribers are also in for a treat as Bioshock 2 will be added to the Instant Game Collection, just in time to get caught up in Rapture before traveling to Columbia for the franchise's third installment.
  3. Sony began rolling out their new Playstation Store design in various countries earlier this week, but the launch did not go smoothly for the company. Eurogamer reported that customers immediately began voicing complaints regarding the sluggish loading time, recognition of Plus subscription and problems related to funding, which ultimately prompted some areas to revert to the previous version of the store. The official Playstation Blog announced that unforeseen difficulties have forced a minor delay in the publishing process for North America and Brazil, causing the redesign launch to miss its previously scheduled October 23 date. Sony assures anxious users that testing is in the final phases before launch; however, an official date for design is not currently in place.
  4. The PlayStation Vita Hacking team is apparently about to claim a few more victims on the PlayStation Portable side of things if a recent blog post from the well known website wololo.net is to be believed. But seeing how everything they've posted so far has turned out to be correct, those of you who own any of the digital copies of the Monster Hunter games might want to load them up onto your systems right now. A few months ago an exploit was found in the PSP games Motorstorm: Arctic Edge and Everybody Tennis that allowed PlayStation Vita owners to emulate PSP games and run some homebrew on Sony's newest handheld. Upon announcing that these games had an exploit, Sony quickly removed them from the store and kept them off for nearly a month before a patched game was released. This removal barred people from buying the game, but also barred people who had already purchased the game from downloading it onto their systems. Today it was announced that the popular PSP game Monster Hunter Freedom Unite has this same flaw, and in fact most of the Monster Hunter series could be used to exploit the PlayStation Vita's inner workings. The blog goes on to warn potential system exploiters that Sony will more than likely be removing all of the Monster Hunter games from the PlayStation Store within the next few hours or days. And seeing how long they took with games like Motorstorm, we might not be seeing the popular series return at all this month. So I guess you should get to downloading them if you want to have access to them any time soon. You can view the original blog posting below.. Monster Hunter PS Vita Exploit
  5. With every update added on to each console's respective online stores, we come one step closer to an all digital future. And that future isn't coming cheap. It seems more and more often that the new games being added to the Xbox Live Marketplace and the Playstation Store are just a bit more expensive than they were a few years ago. More PS1 classics are ringing up as ten dollars instead of the usual six dollars from last year, and many of the new games coming up on the Playstation Store are being given pricetags upwards of fifteen dollars! While that isn't much, the price can really sting when you realize you just spent fifteen dollars on a game that lasted an hour. But it isn't all bad news, because I'm here to guide you into a cheaper world where the games are good and aren't always one cent less than what you have just to send you into a fit over that wasted penny. This is the world of budget games, and it can be great if you know where to look. Noby Noby Boy I've mentioned Noby Noby Boy before in a previous article, and I had nothing but good things to say about the extremely weird little gem of a game. You play as Boy, a worm monster given the task of eating everything in sight and to grow as large as possible so you can reach out to the other planets of the solar system. Before we go any further in this article, I must say I do not use any drugs While this sounds simplistic, the game itself is just chock full of secrets and easter eggs. So many in fact, there are still things to be discovered in the three year old game. Needless to say, Noby Noby Boy can suck up a lot of your time if you're willing to give the game a chance. Not everyone will when they see just how weird the game is, but there's plenty for you if you're willing to dig for it. And with a price of just $5 on the Playstation Store, you'll be able to buy this and the next quirky game on this list with a single $10 PSN card. Then you can spend hours getting confused and frustrated with each game's trippy design choices and extremely addictive gameplay. Trash Panic What can I honestly say about the game Trash Panic? That it is insane and nonsensical? While that might be the right way to describe the game, it hardly does it any justice. In Trash Panic, you're put in charge of destroying garbage and throwing it away. Very quickly however, the garbage can will overflow. This is what failure looks like If you drop three pieces of garbage on the floor, it's game over. It is a lot like Tetris, only the difficulty is ramped up to eleven as early as the first stage. At the end of each level you're given a score on how well you compacted the trash, how environmentally friendly it was, and how many hazardous chemicals you used to break down the trash. By the fourth level I found myself dropping canisters of oil on lit matches to explode a bunch of playground equipment to make space for a washing machine. When the washing machine dropped in, the water inside it put out the flames and ended up making me lose the level. If that sounds even slightly interesting to you, then pick up Trash Panic right now for just $4.99. Flower As I'm sure you've guessed by now, I play an awful lot of weirder games. But that isn't a bad thing! As long as you're willing to dig then odds are you'll eventually find a gem in all the rubbish. Thanks to the hit PSN game Journey, pretty much every PS3 owner knows about its developer, thatgamecompany. But at $15, I can see why people might pass over it. Trust me, you're going to go places with that flower petal With Flower you won't be getting the same experience you would with a game like Journey, but you will be spending around fifty percent less. Flower starts off rather simple. You have a single flower petal that you must guide through a field using your Six Axis controller. As you go along you'll be picking up other flower petals to add to your tail. It is all extremely well-animated, and once you get the hand of it, things start to get all sorts of crazy. You'll be flying through the dark to pick up balls of light, smashing through a city trying to avoid touching the burning spots, looking for special hidden flowers and more. It really is a well-made game, and at $6.99 you really can't lose with this purchase. Fight Night Champion: Champion Mode I write for a video game website, so this pretty much bars me from participating in any professional sport ever. I can live with that. Or can't, depending on how many cans of ravioli my heart can take in one sitting before giving out (I would say at least nine). The point is, while I might not be really into sports, I can't get enough boxing games. Nobody wants to admit they ate nine cans of Ravioli. That's embarrassing. Something about playing a boxing game is just inherently hilarious. Taking cheap shots, punching your opponent six times in slow motion as the fall to the mat. It is just a great genre. So when Fight Night Champion: Champion Mode popped up on the Playstation Store for $4.99, I just had to get it. And surprise surprise, it is a pretty great buy at five dollars! For $4.99 you practically get to play an interactive Rocky movie, but with a bit more bare knuckled white supremacist beat downs thrown in. If you do enjoy the game after purchasing it, you can always use the in-game store to buy the game's multiplayer mode as an add-on to extend it's life a bit. Back To The Future: The Game I'll be honest, I haven't beaten the Telltale Back to the Future games yet. But it is still going to make this list simply because the price is too good to pass up. Absolutely free with just the tiniest bit of work involved. When you look at the list of every PSN game on the Playstation Store, you'll see all of the Back to the Future episodes packed next to each other. Front To The Past All of them, except for Episode One that is. Why Episode One is absent from all the other episodes of the game - I don't know. But finding it is simple enough. You just go to the search bar at the top of the store and type in Back To The Future. Once everything has loaded you should see Episode One right where it belongs. While I can't personally ascribe to whether the game is good or bad, the game has gotten mostly positive reviews on Metacritic. Also, just look at TellTale's history with point-and-click games. Their version of The Walking Dead is one of the most popular games on the store right now, so playing the first episode of one of their earlier releases entirely for free can't be too much of a bother now? [Note: These BTHF downloads might not work for everyone. I've been getting word that some people are denied access to the downloads when they attempt to buy them off of the Playstation Store] -------------------- If you were to buy everything listed above, you would end up spending just a bit more than twenty dollars. A pretty good haul for spending one third the cost of a full game. Are there other cheap games on the Playstation Store that you think of as gems in the rough? Why not list them in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.

  8. I can describe my relationship with Playstation Plus in a single word: sporadic. It is certainly a good service if the monthly freebies are things you don't already have, and the special discounts are nothing to scoff at. While all of these perks are certainly worth the price of admission, I'll usually find myself taking periodic breaks from the service. It isn't the fault of Playstation Plus, I'm just sporadic in my gaming habits. One month I could burn through multiple games, the next month I won't play many games at all. Throughout my time with the Playstation Plus service though, one thing has constantly nagged at me - the price. It seems to fluctuate depending on what advertisement you're looking at. You see, the Playstation Plus service has three different value amounts. You can pay less than five dollars a month, five dollars a month, or slightly over five dollars a month. The price doesn't depend on where you live, it just depends on what ad you happened to stumble upon while looking for Playstation Plus time. There are three common ads that you can find when you're looking to buy time for the Playstation Plus service. You can be offered the price of four dollars a month, six dollars a month, and the insanely confusing price of five dollars a month. I'll get into why the five dollars a month is confusing in a minute, but first we'll deal with the $4-$6 price points. Going off of the Playstation website, you can buy three months of time for $17.99, which equals out to about six dollars a month for the service. For those of you that haven't learned simple math for some reason, that is two dollars more than the advertised price on the official Playstation website. If you do want to get the advertised price of less than five dollars a month then you'll have to spring for the full year of Playstation Plus service. At a solid fifty dollars for the card, you can see why people might spring for the oddly priced and more expensive three month card. You're actually losing more money while spending less. On one side you have an inflated price for a three month subscription, and on the other end you're paying the advertised price of four dollars. But then things get complicated when you see the Playstation Plus advertisements that say the service costs five dollars a month. At no point does this five dollar price point ever come into play, so just why are there ads saying otherwise? I know, I know, I'm splitting hairs. Whether you're spending six dollars or four, you're still getting a great deal. But this sort of stuff just bugs me! Why can't they just choose one price and stick with it? Why even advertise certain prices that aren't even available? This can't be bugging just me! Obviously this isn't an actual problem, but what do you think about all these pricing shenanigans with the Playstation Plus service? Why doesn't the service cost as much as it is advertised? Why does it cost more at times? Feel free to leave your comments below. As always, thanks for reading.
