    Shaftinho would actually translate as "Little Shaft", if my Brazilian football knowledge is right. Draw your own conclusions.

    I've only recently started listening to the UK podcast as well, but am really enjoying it. (I should feel ashamed for not representing my country!) You guys remind me of Adam & Joe quite a bit sometimes, which is always a good thing.

    Ive been listening to the podcast for a few weeks now and i would have to say its the most entetaining thing on the internet, Towellie!!!!(as cundy says it)
  • Matt Cundy - May 5, 2011 11:37 a.m.

    @tomthespesh - for once my memory has served me well. @thlgamesradar - thanks for speaking up for PS+ and putting us straight on a couple of points. @leejohnson222 - ruthless retail opportunism. But it's not an anti-Sony thing. They'd be doing the exact same thing if it was XBL that was down.
  • thlgamesradar - May 5, 2011 11:19 a.m.

    Oh, one this you guys also seem to be unaware of is that with the free 30 days of PlayStation+, it also means that everyone is able to get the exclusive discounts, and any games bought with the discount are NOT taken away once the 30 days is over. (20% off Beyond Good & Evil & 50% off Eat Them and more when the Store becomes back online) Also, any current + subscribers get 30 days free on top of what they already have. And, in a way, if you get the free games then surely a month is enough the play through them...? Maybe not. Finally, I agree that if there was a choice of free games which you got to pick one of would be good. Sony did this in the past, whereby if you purchase a PSP Go you could download 3 PSP games from a choice of about 10 :)

    Lad I knew drunk some piss from a panda pop bottle for a fiver. Wonder if him and that bird who ate shit from a stick will ever meet?
  • philipshaw - May 5, 2011 10:42 a.m.

    Can't wait to hear what the toliet dash is about
  • leejohnson222 - May 5, 2011 9:01 a.m.

    what do you guys think of gamestation having huge A boards outside their stores in debry / birmingham saying sick of psn being down, buy a 360 with all the deals and prices ?? i think thats a really low scruffy marketing trick to capitalise on a situation created by cock nose hackers hiding behind their computers.hackers should drop a virus onto the torrent sites for people using R4 cards and dont pay for their games or copied 360 games, just title the virus gears of war 3 and make sure it fuks the systems firmware, piracy is always around but people think its a lesser crime, people seem to choose what laws they think are important and will follow.
  • Y2Ken - May 4, 2011 11:55 p.m.

    Nice cast guys Also @thlgamesradar - Wow, I've been contemplating PS+ Plus for a while, and I remember all these things coming out at various times, but seeing them all together shows just what good value you get out of it.
  • el.waxa - May 4, 2011 9:50 p.m.

    I lol'd bricks at the Glass in your quiche bit.
  • thlgamesradar - May 4, 2011 7:16 p.m.

    You guys always seem to, not knock, but downplay PSN + and I think it's because you (for the most part) don't pay for a lot of games that you play. So for for my £40 I have received Stacking, wipEout HD, PAIN, Critter Crunch, Shatter, Sam & Max, Zen Pinball and the full PS3 version of Little Big Planet plus a veritable smorgasbord of minis, DLC, Beta's, themes and PSOne games...................:)

    Yay^^ I do wonder what this must be like for American listeners. It is very english... Goddamn captcha is beating me! I am not a robot
  • Kieran712 - May 4, 2011 5:01 p.m.

    Osama bin Ladin shouldnt have put his real address on PSN.... I couldn't resist xD
  • tomthespesh - May 4, 2011 4:56 p.m.

    Cundy! The guy in GTA 3 was called Fido by the daughter of the Mafia boss on the first island when you did missions for them.
  • barniebo - May 4, 2011 1:36 p.m.

    It was definitely the Hovis ad you're thinking of. Damn, now I need toast!
  • scaler2000 - May 4, 2011 1:34 p.m.

    good job lads keep it up :D
  • 4fromK - May 4, 2011 1:13 p.m.
