More PlayStation 3 News...
Only one free game for PS+ Members, I think they should have put more freebies for PS+ members. Well at least they put some discounts.
Agreed, especially for the holidays it would have been nice of them eh?
I like the notice in the last three seconds on that video, "PS3 firmware 3.50 ..."
Is Alice Madness Returns full game trial only for playstation plus? I would like to play this demo (before choosing whether to buy or not the full game), but I amn't plus user.
Is it downloadable for normal user (no plus) ?
