    It does seem like nobody cares about PES anymore.

      Well it’s ‘soccer’ so what do you expect on a games blog that focuses mostly on Japanese games? If this was a sports blog, or a more causal gaming blog I’m sure everyone and their dog would be talking about it. :P

      • malek86

        Actually I was meaning to say that seeing a soccer game being given away for free in Europe after just six months, speaks volumes about its reception and sales.

        • darke

          Ah, that makes more sense. :)

          Granted I keep forgetting I’m actually on the ‘Europe’ store in AU; because only clinically brain-dead morons like the movie industry would group areas a third of the world away from each other. :(

    Stealth Inc. A Clone in the Dark is a Crossbuy tittle meaning you get the PSVita game aswell (verified by moderator at PSblog)

    good to see we get MK for free. I want to try it but don’t think i’d throw down cash for it. GG Sony.

    • Jeremy Sumrak

      My feelings exactly. I love Contra/Metal Slug, and MK seems a good fit for me…but I bought Hard Corps: Uprising when it first came out and have not yet finished it. I just…can’t get into DL titles. Yeah…I’m an old-school “physical release or nothing” grandpa.

  • Skye Johnson

    Well, I guess I’d maybe give Batman a spin now.

    …Pixeljunk Monsters though.

    That title.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Another PS+ game I already own…

    • DanielGearSolid

      I mean… It’s bound to happen

      • Audie Bakerson

        Problem is EVERYTHING this year (only year I’ve signed up for PS+) I’ve owned or purposefully avoided

        • DanielGearSolid

          Well, sorry

  • Tried it once with my ex. Not a bad game by any means, but not my cup of tea.

    I’ve owned the GOTY edition on PC for a while but have never gotten around to clearing the 22gB needed to install it. Wonder what will happen first, me clearing space or me downloading the PS+ version :

  • DragKudo

    NOOOO!! I already have this. T.T when are we going to get better games?!

  • The Watcher

    Unless it’s an rpg, i rarely get the chance to buy games on PS3 anymore, By the time i finish all PS+ games in a month more games come out. PS+ is saving me money long term. Lol

  • subsamuel01

    I own this game on my 360, PS3 and Wii U. Beat the game like 7 times over, amazing title can’t wait for the sequel, literally bought a PS4 2 days ago just to pre-order the game.
