Hey James,

I just posted this in the blog post for the store update, but its buried somewhere in Page 4 so probably won’t get replied to. Anyway,I was just wondering if you have any sort of update on the status of a feature that would allow us to upgrade a sub-account (i.e. a child’s account) to a master-account? I asked about this about half a year ago and nothing has happened as-of-yet. =/

I know you don’t really deal with this sort of thing, but I don’t really know who else to ask, customer services have been no help in this regard, simply telling me to make a new account which is not an option due to the sheer amount of money I have spent on it and all of my save data/trophies. :(

There are so many of us that are frustrated beyond belief that we are now over 18 yet cannot have our own wallet and add our own funds, accept new terms and conditions without having to access the master account tied to that sub account, access Facebook, etc, etc.

There are so many PSN users like myself that are utterly desperate for this to be implemented into the PSN, which should have been there since the start really. I appreciate any reply you can give me.

Thanks,
Skitz001

When will we be getting the rest of the IREM spaces?

And how about some FF7 costumes.

Well, I haven’t found a Virtua Tennis 4 move demo and I searched for over 15 minutes and no luck. I live in the UK. We are supposed to have it right?

- Quick Question: can we still gain the Virtua Tennis Apartment for 11,000 or more points between those dates or is it locked now?

 
Dark-Twisted 13 July, 2011 @ 8:08 pm   8

Wow, just went and got 22,000 on the game and no apartment. It would have been nice to have known about that before it was locked but oh well, I guess.

Hi James.

James I don’t usually comment on these things but considering how rather vallied complaints are being ignored in the main update I’ve decided to post them here again.

Why is it that last week Golden Axe was removed from the store, then someone on the blog (one of your staff not some random dude) said “It will be up soon” It’s now been a week and instead of a game that everybody wanted being put up, we’ve had an even more pathetic PSN+ update than last weeks was.

Also regarding the Sega Baseline apartments… thats great you’re giving us that… however it might have been useful if you had told us what the requirements for the apartment were BEFORE the deadline… Or would that have been too sensible a suggestion?

Picadilly68 14 July, 2011 @ 5:00 am   12

wondering if you meant 110,000 for the Virtua tennis apt? It says “anyone who MASTERED the game with a score of 11,000 or more”. Something doesnt sound right about that. I sure hope Im wrong.

 
mr00droidman 14 July, 2011 @ 5:38 am   13

i ment to say find not fand lol

 

Hi James,

Any news about the items in Welcome Back Package some nations (at least Dutch and Belgium) we can’t get? Will there be an update for that issue this time?

OjBoy63 14 July, 2011 @ 8:51 am   15

So i downloaded the first four and now I cant download four and five, so any information that you have in how you downloaded Escalation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS:)

Are those red shorty-shorts he’s pointedly yet thankfully “wearing” facing away from us in the top photo shot even legal? Those used scarlet & white moustache-waxing strips torturously sewn together as “wrestle”wears”” really ought to report themselves immediately to the nearest police station where they can be immediately confounded to a permanent Home closeted away for eternity in the station’s dankest & darkest oubliette.
As for Virtua Tennis Invaders game, I unfortunately had to pass-in the towel. The light blue strips that tried to pass as bombardments from the Spacies were just too fast for my poor bunny eyes to behold in time…add the awful light orange background my straining eyes tried to distinguish said bombs from, along with unwelcome coteries of in-gamespace grief/glitchers running their irritating selves all up in the Spacies action ON the actual playing court, finally forced me to quit in disgusted self-disarray.
I hope all of you whom “won” the vaunted perspace receive John McEnroe & Richard Simmens as virtual companions to follow you in Home for ever…

I hope the ERRORS for the PlayStation home Welcome Back package get fixed before the 28th of july! Don’t disappoint us!
