    Where's Outland? I'm ashamed of you all!

      I reckon Outland suffered by being released during the PSN outage. By the time PSN finally came back online it had already been out for a couple of weeks on 360, so people with both machines probably just bought it there.

      And with everybody getting free PSN games as compensation for the outage then there wasn't much incentive to actually pay money for a game around the time PSN came back online.

      Amazed (and pleased) so see Super Stardust HD still going strong after all this time.

    To anyone that hasn't played PixelJunk's Shooter, Shooter 2 or Monsters, go and play them. My favourite indie production house by a huge margin. Eden and Sidescroller are pretty awesome too. I did expect to see Bastion on here

      Bastion isn't on PSN

    I only purchased Pixeljunk Shooter 2 and Flower. And haven't finished either. Been too busy with games like Terraria and Minecraft and Skyrim and Deus Ex and The Witcher 2 all on PC.

    I think its funny when people say the PC is dying.

    Steam sales also convinced me to buy another 20 games that I haven't finished it even really played much. PSN has a long way to go to catch steam in terms of marketing and sales.

    Goes to show how few (quality) Sony funded PSN titles there are, when Super Stardust HD (released in 2007) and Fat Princess (2008/9?) feature on the list.

      Or it shows the quality of those games that people are still buying them now. Hell, if I bought a PS3 this week i'd still want to buy SSHD, no matter when it was released.

    Maybe if they advertised their products a bit better via psn, they would sell more new titles instead of trusted names.

    I wonder though, do Playstation Plus games that are given for "free" count towards games purchased? I mean, technically they are "purchased" but the cost is reduced to $0.00. It does kind of answer my question I was asking only myself, why Flower isn't given away with PSPlus. If it's still managing to make heaps of money, then why give it away for free?
