Does the PlayStation Network Offer Good Game Choice?

100°
318w ago - I have been playing on the PlayStation Network (PSN) and downloading games there for a year now. The question I am asking myself: is it enough?

In all honesty, no! I will admit that I have love for many of the games that I have downloaded, but where is the depth of games that Xbox Live Arcade has to offer. A few games that I am missing are Luxor 2, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Pac-Man: Championship Edition.

I have loved the Luxor games since I fist played them and find it delightfully addictive. I picked it up along with Pac-Man CE on the Xbox Live Arcade Compilation disc. I simply do not understand why the PSN does not offer at least one of these great games. Further, where is UMK3? Sure many purists swear by MK2, but I have love for the run button and would love to try my skills against players worldwide.

I am not going to say that the PSN lacks great titles, but I expect more. I find myself playing PAIN and it's expansions more than most of my disc-based games. However, it gets old faster than I like to admit. PAIN is also amazing in that my 8-year-old son and I can get lost in it for hours on end.

I am glad to have Super Puzzle Fighter HD and Rampart to lose myself in. They are great classics that I have already spent quality time with them. If you ever get a chance to play...

Resistance 2 BETA Now Available on PlayStation Network!

50°
318w ago - Update: Greg Phillips (Producer, SCEA) has now confirmed via PS Blog that the Resistance 2 public BETA officially begins today!

To quote: "Today, October 16th, the public BETA for Resistance 2 will begin in North America. The BETA will include competitive maps from three locations in the game. Speaking of beta.myresistance.net, the beta version of our new community site goes live tonight as well. And, finally, Resistance 2 has gone gold."

Earlier today Feranthur reported the following: Well I got my code from PS that I entered and it says it is invalid... and a mod said that the code will work when the beta goes live... so when I saw that beta.myresistance.com was down for "login" I checked my code and... IT WORKED!!!!

BUT... When I click in download it gives me a error code... so I have to wait until the BETA is completely uploaded to download? ... that means the BETA will begin TOMORROW!!

Edit: Now my download is going fine.. I have 840MB downloaded.

PS: I'm from Brazil that means that my PS3 menu is in Portuguese... don't get confused.
