May also brings the free release of PS one Classic Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania Chronicles. For many of you, Castlevania: SotN needs no introduction. If you’ve never had a chance to experience what many fans consider to be the definitive Castlevania game, you now have no excuse. Castlevania Chronicles, on the other hand, is based on the original Castlevania but is no less engaging than SotN, especially given its blistering challenge. Gamers who are looking for a classic challenge need look no further!


Saints Row The Third will be available on 5/8 as a PS3 Full Game download. If you missed out on this insane open-world epic last fall, you may want to jump on it as it will have a 20% discount when it releases.

Trine 2 is very good. I love this game. I play it with my roommates. Not many couch coop games left.

This is amazing, I almost don't even have to buy a new game anymore or nearly as much.  Still need to play through the free Sly cooper, Shank 2, and now Trine 2 next month, just awesome.  I also still want to get Rayman Origins, and at $15 maybe this is the version I will buy.

Seriously, if you haven't purchased SotN yet in your some odd years playing video games, you should be shot.

It's just a superb game.

Fuck yes!  I loved Trine and kept debating buying 2, but now that is covered!

Awesome to see Rock of Ages for free as well.  I really enjoyed the Xbox demo for it.

Not quite. I'm not paying $50 a year to hear everyone and their mother call me a fag and play on the exact same type of server as the PS3 has. I either play with others for free (PS/Steam/Origin) or pay $50 a year and get hundreds of dollars of games for free. :D

I own SoTN (on PSone disc), but kinda annoyed that the HD version is still an Xbox 360 exclusive, why not port that over to PS3 instead of sticking with the original version.

Yeah, probalby why it's free though! I got it on XBOX, it's still great for both Im' sure. You may not have noticed, but the symphonic score on the XBOX version was condensed (because those are orchestrated tracks recorded, like a CD recording) so file size of those would be pretty large if left intact. I'm curious if they will condense the PS3 version's music too. If you have the original disc, the music was mesmerizing. Condensing that music and making it sound tinnier is a big nono. But file sizes aren't that much a problem anymore, so hopefully it will be fully intact.

The PS1 classic should be the same as the disc.
