Hey EG,

Just to say, I work at HMV, and the entire Criterion Collection is currently 2 For 25! And they say the intertrons is cheaper...

Anyway, keep up the good work Jelly Deals team!

@jackdavitt Yep. 363 actually reopened before Christmas, the closing of 150 has been on the cards for a while. 363 is the original home of HMV. Sounds nice for those of us with Rose-tinted specs, but it's of course down to rent, simply.

Bit of a non-article, really. Headline is a tiny bit misleading for those of us who select pitchforks and tin-foil hats first.

As a huge fan of both Amplitude and Frequency back in the day, I cannot wait for this. Compatibility across games is a stunning feature too. Don't see many devs offering real value these days (steam/indie bundles aside). Kudos to Harmonix.

HMV store advertises 3DS XL with second Circle Pad using internet mock-up

@dogmanstaruk just noticed that may have sounded a bit confrontational. My apologies. Anyway, it's done with now. Let's go back to complaining about on-disc DLC or something..

@dogmanstaruk it's not an official graphic. It's an A5 sized staff-made graphic. They've taken an old official graphic and placed the 3DS "XL" offending graphic on top. You can tell that from the thin white borders down the left and right side, showing its probably been cut out and stuck on top.

As an HMV employee, I can tell you all that the price quoted here is wrong. It is actually 36.99 on its own. Happy shooting folks!

Hey Spadge, any Worms love for the PS3 coming our way?
Don't worry, I'm about to buy the XBLA version anyway..

Also, to others, the price changes have now taken effect, yet they are not on the specific "XBLA Hits" page, you'll find them under "All Games".
Happy worming, people! :)

Yes. SUMO are highly competent devs, so I expect nothing more than FUN, in huge letters. If loads of people buy it, maybe Sega will give them a call again, and get them to work on a XBLA/PSN Outrun or Daytona. Either will do, but Outrum would mean more to me. C2C defines 'f**king awesome' for me.

PS3 Buzz patched with Trophies

afgavinstan

10 years ago

Just had another look on the Buzz Forums, and 'Dan', a member of the Relentless team has said it's probably down to Sony's servers, and that Uncharted and SSHD had similar problems soon after patching, which sorted themselves out.

I'll relax now...

@myiagros: Here's what I've done. Right now, no one on my friends list who has Buzz is online. So I compared with someone who's online, yet doesn't have Buzz. After the synchronization, it shows the list of games we can compare trophies in. He's currently trophy hunting in Uncharted, and I don't own Uncharted (yet). The list of games shown includes Uncharted, yet Buzz won't show up..

If I don't own Uncharted, yet I can choose it in the list, why can't I see Buzz, if he doesn't own it?

I think there may be a problem with the patch. There's similar stories on the EU Sony Buzz Community Forums...

Weird...

No, they are not retroactive, which is a bummer. I'd have at least the silver multiplayer one by now...

EDIT: Also, my profile card thingy doesn't seem to update after I've earned trophies. The 'Trophy Collection' does, but my profile will not go up from my previous trophy total of 10. I WANNA BE LEVEL 2!!!

No, it's a mistake.

The 'Team' game pack is 2.99. The full game is still whatever price it was before. You need the full game to play the 'Team' modes.

But thats another argument for another day.
