Happy Holidays — The SEGA Mega Sale for PSN is on!

David Beavers's Avatar + Posted by David Beavers on Dec 22, 2009 // Assistant Community Manager

Hello, my name is David Beavers, I work on the community team here at Sega and I have a special announcement for the PlayStation Blog readers. Every SEGA game on PSN and PSPgo is 40% off, from this afternoon (after the PlayStation Store update) through January 7th. This is your chance to not only snag downloadable content for all variety of flagship SEGA titles — present and past — but to load up your PSPgo with SEGA titles, as well.

There’s a pretty wide breadth of stuff here. On the Downloadable Content side, you can shore up your copy of Sonic Unleashed with new stages and missions — all of the various Adventure Packs for Sonic Unleashed are discounted, with tons of daytime and nighttime missions. I’m a big fan of the daytime stages, and all of the available packs feature more daytime than nighttime missions (but for Werehog fans, there’s plenty of nighttime missions as well).

Speaking of Sonic, the “very hard” missions for Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 are also discounted, so if you were ever looking for a dirt-cheap excuse to complete your Sonic collection, there you have it! But the real gem — at least in my own humble opinion — is the extra content for Valkyria Chronicles. This includes all three DLC packs, featuring bonus missions and the amazing EX mode, which has a ton of new features, weapons, and increased difficulty.

I’ve already written lots about my undying love for the tactical strategy of games like Shining Force, and Valkyria Chronicles is absolutely the spiritual successor to these games. While I can’t say enough good things about the game itself, I also am incredibly impressed with the DLC that’s come out — it’s not just an ad-hoc collection of maps or standalone missions, but several new ways to play the game that deepen and add to an already complex and emotionally engaging story.

Don’t just take my word for it though — our own honorary Gallian, Ruby Eclipse, has fought long and hard for this game as a labor of love. His message to the fans who have worked so hard to help make this great game succeed:

To arms, Gallia! In support of the season and our fans’ amazing dedication, we’d like to say thank you with a special 40% off holiday sale across all three packs of Valkyria Chronicles DLC!

See the battlefield from Selvaria’s eyes in Behind Her Blue Flame, take on challenging odds with some of Squad 7’s rising stars in Enter the Edy Detachment, or add a whole new level of difficulty – and earn new, powerful weapons – with Hard Mode EX!

Did I say PSP games before? Oh yes! A little while back the community team here at SEGA took a look at some of the best & brightest PSP games SEGA had made, in celebration of the launch of the PSPgo. Now those titles are slashed 40%, and it’s nigh time to take a look at shoring up your collection of portable games.

I already wrote about Sonic Rivals, and now both Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2 are part of the Holiday sale. This was an awesome experience — I hadn’t actually played them until recently, and didn’t really know what to expect. I was surprised to find that these are incredibly well-crafted racing games, but with the exquisite level design that’s always been core to the best games of the Sonic series.

Aside from the great Sonic games that graced the PSP I’m thrilled to say that some of the most eclectic and unique titles ended up on that system as well. I am speaking here of the incomparable Crazy Taxi and Crush. Crazy Taxi is exactly what it sounds like, and this is a very good thing. It’s also good that it’s on a portable system, because this is one of those games where one’s body tends to move in direct proportion to the craziness of the game as you twist & turn your way through crowded city streets.

This really just scratches the surface — you can also pick up the gnarly road-battler Full Auto 2: Battlelines, the charming & addictive Super Monkey Ball Adventure, and the awesome 2D action shooter, Gunstar Heroes!

PSP:

  • Alien Syndrome
  • Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars

@improperlyaged
Sony is setting up the psn for paid subscriptions for next year. Just wait. For those who are willing to pay $29.99 or $69.99, they will get updates immediately while those who want things free will wait for whenever it’s available.

I’ve been waiting to pick up both Crush & the Sega Genesis collection since they came out on UMD. Now having made the transition to DD only (by trading in my old collection for a PSP Go and a fair bit on PSN cards) I’m glad to see they are right in the range I think is worth picking them up at.

Thanks a ton, will definitely be buying soon.

This sale is perfect! I picked up Valkyria Chronicles a few months ago and finally finished it last week. Now’s the perfect time to get that DLC!

One question: Besides trophy support, will we (as in North America) ever get that fourth Valkyria Chronicles DLC that was released over in Japan? That would be cool if it happened.

Um so not to nag but this my 3rd time inquiring as to when this update will actually be available? I mean its only 8:38 here in nyc. I mean how is possible scee can coordinate an update for like 30 countries and 11 languages on time yet scea can’t manage the same feat for 1 country in 1 language. Just wondering????????? If there’s a delay we don’t mind just actually inform us of the delay b4 tomorrow. Ur honesty would be appreciated. And please for the love o god fix ur pricing why would anyone pay the same price for a dl as a umd. Sony marketing fails(again). Get this through ur head price point actually matters. Especially these days.

Ah Valkyria Chronicles, one of the greatest games to ever grace the earth… and you took the sequel away from our system :’( At least I do have a psp (which ill bet getting crazy taxi for)

I do hope you’ll bring Valkyria Chronicles back to our PS3 if you ever make a third.

Too bad I like physical copies of games. Which I could still probably find for the same prices if I look enough.
