Nice hoping to score some good deals on things I may not have bought yet that I may be interested in.

So what happens if you have all 5 of the things that you need for the Spring Fever costume?

    The sale runs for 10 weeks, so hopefully there will be some featured sale content that you don’t own yet.

Everyday Shooter is a fun, original, and difficult twin stick shooting game. Pretty damn good deal for $5 in my opinion.

Looking forward to seeing what else will be on sale in the coming weeks….hopefully some games I haven’t purchased already will get a cut.

I wish we could know more of the games that are on sale in advance, I like that :)
If not for seeing this ad, then I would have bought Patchwork Heroes by now. It looks like a fun game, but I’m just wondering how long would the story mode is and if you can replay it’s levels.

What if you already bought the game? Do you still get the items for the Home avatar?

    Unfortunately, if you previously purchased, you aren’t automatically entitled to the Home avatar costume pieces. However, after the 10-week campaign, the costume will be available for purchase in Home.

I’ll pick up Trine, Braid and Pixeljunk Shooter if they go on sale for 4.99 each.

+ pgsdi on March 24th, 2010 at 11:34 am said:

So let me get this straight…To obtain the Home costume…we have to buy a “spring sale” game evey week for 5 weeks to get the voucher? OR…. do we get the Home costume with just purchasing a sale game?

More clarification please….

    Sure, here are the deets:

    Each week a male and female piece of the costume will be unlocked as a reward when someone purchases an item from the spring fever sale. The schedule is as follows:
    Week 1 – bee feet, flower pot feet
    Week 2 – bee legs, flower pot legs
    Week 3 – bee torso, flower pot torso
    Week 4 – bee hands, flower pot hands
    Week 5 – bee head, flower pot head
    Week 6 – bee feet, flower pot feet
    Week 7 – bee legs, flower pot legs
    Week 8 – bee torso, flower pot torso
    Week 9 – bee hands, flower pot hands
    Week 10 – bee head, flower pot head

Will any new games be released in conjunction with the spring fever theme? Last year has Noby Noby Boy and Flower and so on which was pretty great.

Trine was recently 1/2 off.. and now it has a permanent price drop at $15.. I missed my chance to buy it at $10, hoepfully it gets another reduction/sale

I know this is a long shot where there coming up with new games! but when they going to come up with a new yugioh game for the playstation 3

+ SarshelYam on March 24th, 2010 at 11:39 am said:

So..I own one of the games and the new pricing on some of the others is tempting a purchase. If I buy the remainder, will I simply be out a piece because I already purchased it day one? Seems something of a punishment for those early adopters who paid full price many moons ago for games like Everyday Shooter. How is this going to work?

+ plaztiksyke on March 24th, 2010 at 11:46 am said:

when will Everyday Shooter get a trophy patch? It’s such a great example of a fun, unique indie game! Lemmings, flOw, and echochrome all got trophy patches — it’s Everyday Shooter’s turn! :)

It would also be awesome if the music in Everyday Shooter was updated as well with losslessly compressed audio. My partner loves playing it just for the music sometimes :)

PS: Piyotama also deserves a trophy patch — such a fun game!

PPS: A trophy patch for Siren: Blood Curse in time for Halloween would be most welcome as well!

I’m guessing this goes into effect tomorrow, because Everyday Shooter is still $10 on PSN.

Guys I just want Super Stardust HD for $4.99 or $9.99 with all the DLC and it’s a DONE DEAL!!!

+ magoo_1080p on March 24th, 2010 at 11:55 am said:

I hope they discount Flower again, because I missed it the last time it went on sale. Would be nice to save some coin on MLB 10 for the PSP too. I’ve been thinking about buying it but with no online play or roster updates this year $40 seems way too pricey.


26

+ Grouken on March 24th, 2010 at 12:16 pm said:

They should add which games/DLC are on sale every week because if we want something from Week 1 and Week 6, we receive only one Home piece.


27

+ reson8er on March 24th, 2010 at 12:27 pm said:

I “lost” my everyday shooter game after I switched PSN ID’s to my current ID. I have been waiting for a sale so that I can somewhat justify re-buying a game I already purchased.

Why is it not possible for your purchased content to carry over?! ; ; Anyway, At least its going to Jonathan Mak that guy is hilarious. Hear anything from him lately?


28

+ Moosehole on March 24th, 2010 at 12:27 pm said:

Well if anything this tells me that I should no longer buy PSN games when they are first released. Nope, I shouldn’t support the devs or Sony by purchasing these titles at full price because not only will I be able to get them for half off later on, but I’ll get additional free stuff as well. Lesson learned. Thanks, Ro.

People who already purchased these games at full price should be getting the bonus items as well.

What does the home costume look like?

How come there isn’t a female bee costume?

Oh I always wanted to pick up Everyday Shooter and that price is great. But my 60gb PS3 like many others has died and I won’t have access to the store for awhile :(

I’ve been having so much spring fever lately :). Please tell me the Flower soundtrack will be released soon due to the Spring Fever theme going on. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

+ MrBeatdown on March 24th, 2010 at 1:10 pm said:

Cool. Probably needless to say, I love it when you guys run sales like this. I kind of wish we knew it all up front though just so I wasn’t hesistant about buying anything for the next ten weeks.

I’m hoping to see a lot of cheaper DLC for some older games. I’d love to see the two MotorStorm Pacific Rift expansions go for $10 combined. The Fallout 3 expansions going for $25 for all five would be nice as well. They’ve been that price on, well, the… other system, twice now. I’d probably jump on the Killzone DLC bundle as well, if that got reduced price.

Mmm, I won’t be getting any home clothes on week 1 since I’ve already purchased Gravity Crash. Can’t wait to see what the games/dlc on sale are each week. Have to make the most of the two $20 PSN card I put into my account last week…

Please please please include Flock on this sale, I missed out last year when it went on sale. I’ve wanted it so bad since the demo came out and just haven’t had money to buy it : (

I agree with 20, everyday shooter does need a trophy patch, such a great game.

Still don’t see why you guys can’t start your day a couple of hours earlier on Thursdays and get the store up at a time that will please the people buying the stuff you work hard to get up every week.

Plus, it seems curl not to give a list of what’s known to come a couple of weeks out. You should always be working to ensure the customer is getting the best possible deal. This hit and run attitude needs to stop.

I think I bought all the PSN games I was interested in already…well, except for Trine. If that goes on sale for 9.99 again, I’ll probably pick that up. Other than that, I can’t really imagine anything that would be enticing enough for me to buy…

OH. Actually, I take that back. Discounted PS1 classics?

+ sdmf4ever on March 24th, 2010 at 2:23 pm said:

There are several games and add-ons that I have yet to purchase, so it would be nice if some of these were included in the reduced prices: Super Stardust HD w/DLC, FFVII and FF VIII respectively ($10 is too much since I already have them on PS One, but it sure would be nice to play them on PSP); Braid (missed it before), Pixel Junk Shooter, Trine (missed it the last time), Fat Princess, both Megaman games, and numerous other add-ons. Even a reduction on all the Disgaea 3 DLC would be an added bonus, since altogether it costs around $50+. What about a reduction on POP: Epilogue and SFIV costume pack (they were reduced last week on the EU store)?

Please reduce the price of the downloadable psp titles to match their umd counterparts. I just bought the psp titles ff disgeasa, persona, and soul caliber on amazon for under 20 dollars each (these titles are all 40 dollars on the network store). I own both the go and slim psps and got tired of waiting for the network to reduce the price of those games. I prefer to purchase the games for the psp as downloads, but refuse to pay double “pspgo tax”. Also please make every effort to bring all the legacy titles to the store and all of the new titles (only about half the new psp titles are making an appearence). thanks

Compared to last year’s Spring Fever this kinda blows since it isn’t for new games. I don’t want to play old PSN games, I want new ones. And only weird people would wear those costumes in Home which ain’t that good anyway. But I’m loving God of War 3, Uncharted 2, and Heavy Rain!
