    Just a note for the Sales after Week #1 (discount on PSN Gamers’ Choice Award Winners), the discount will be 50% off the regular price for ALL users. Also, note that the sale offers change out each week. So be sure to check back often to find out which sale titles are offered next…

    You are correct, sir!


+ Hellman on March 8th, 2011 at 10:10 am said:

I need to purchase PS+ the deals are fantastic for everything that is offered with it.


+ BrianMcGuinness on March 8th, 2011 at 10:10 am said:

Nice. Gonna get Tetris and Darts today probably.


+ DeathGazer on March 8th, 2011 at 10:13 am said:

Guardian of Light discount? Will buy!


+ FrailFox on March 8th, 2011 at 10:14 am said:

I can’t wait to grab Castle Crashers for such a great deal as a PS+ subscriber. The girlfriend’s gonna love this.


+ Link01 on March 8th, 2011 at 10:17 am said:

I’m psyched for the Dead Nation Price, def picking that up. Hey, there’s rumor about a PS Store overhaul.. are you guys working on that. Also, is LG’s situation with you guys and the whole hacking fight affecting funding for us? I mean, the last time we saw a reasonable console update was ages ago. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for the exclusives… I was just expecting a little more software work.


+ AllStyle on March 8th, 2011 at 10:19 am said:

What time is this update taking Place Today? I would love to get my Hands on the PS+ Demo Mortal Kombat…. Its driveing me bonkers waiting for an update..


+ TomHoang on March 8th, 2011 at 10:20 am said:

Looking forward to that Tetris sale :)


+ mywhitenoise on March 8th, 2011 at 10:20 am said:

Dead Nation will be mine!


+ jonathan_val on March 8th, 2011 at 10:22 am said:


WHEN… ???


+ Weshzu on March 8th, 2011 at 10:22 am said:

dead nation or castle crashers mmm tuff one


+ janoc7 on March 8th, 2011 at 10:23 am said:

I wish Beyond Good & Evil weren’t an XBLA timed-exclusive for their spring promotional thing. But sales on Dead Nation and Guardian of Light are nice consolations.


+ jebusid on March 8th, 2011 at 10:23 am said:

Why do not I see the games at a discount? all games are regular price, and I still say that again tomorrow. It is assumed that the discounts were available from today on March 8.

Question: Will PS+ members getting deeper discounts on the regular Spring Fever sales items as well as the winners of the Gamer’s Choice?

    + Ro Hernandez on March 8th, 2011 at 12:16 pm said:

    Only valid for the week #1 offers… PS+ subscribers also see a two-week discount ending on 3/22.


+ SuperCoOper777 on March 8th, 2011 at 10:34 am said:

too bad I bought castle crashers 1 day before the voting started


+ WFMMK on March 8th, 2011 at 10:35 am said:

Please update the store early this week! Need my MK!


+ Curtisio on March 8th, 2011 at 10:39 am said:

Great! I love sales!

I’d like to see some more DLC sales, too, but Spring is 3 full months long!


+ DarkRecoil on March 8th, 2011 at 10:41 am said:

Any PSP owner who does not already own Ghost of Sparta is most probably dead.

….why not discount great games which may of been overlooked on PSN? Like last year’s Socom Fire Team Bravo 3 (PSP) or MAG (PS3)?

Another idea to please more people would be to increase the number of games you put on sale from 4 to 8 (more choice = less whining)

In any case we do appreciate your efforts guys. Thanks!

    Good idea… we’ll think about that for next year


+ Demonhunter84 on March 8th, 2011 at 10:41 am said:

Eat Them! Might get this as I love monster games.


+ JonJonXD on March 8th, 2011 at 10:42 am said:

Nice. i’ve been waiting for Eat Them! and Tetris to get discounts.


+ etc860 on March 8th, 2011 at 10:42 am said:

Very Nice some great games!!!

(1)Any Idea when Sega Bass Fishing (Dreamcast)will be coming to PSN?
It was announced 10/20/10 but I haven’t heard anything since.

(2) Will you be putting the Uncharted 2 DLC on sale again soon?



+ bmart008 on March 8th, 2011 at 10:52 am said:

:s not being a Playstation Plus subscriber is a bummer it seems, I spent tons of money on PSN, but I don’t buy Playstation plus because you just get “licences” of the games they give you, not ownership. I bought Ghost of Sparta the first week it was out digitally to get all the extra goodies, but I would still like the other games to be out there for the same price for everyone, it would just make the deals seem less for those who don’t have plus, paying the “chump” price, doesn’t get people to buy. I bet you’ll see Plus subscribers buying a lot of stuff, but the rest of us won’t, because we want the full deal.

Just my opinion. The only game I want to buy of the PSP ones (that I don’t already own) is Phantasy Star Portable 2, but I won’t buy it at 30% off when there’s a 50% deal, even though I can’t get it.


+ AmethystVenom on March 8th, 2011 at 10:59 am said:

Nice. Looks like it might be time to pick up castle crashers. :)


+ zombie9 on March 8th, 2011 at 11:01 am said:

@25 yea you don’t own the stuff but when you play them and win all the trophys in the game what else is there to do? Renting anywhere from 10-20 games a year on PSN for $50. and you keep the trophys. sounds like a win to me.


+ nin513 on March 8th, 2011 at 11:03 am said:

Hurry and update store =] i wanna play Mortal Kombat demo!!!!


+ TwinDad on March 8th, 2011 at 11:06 am said:

Discounts on new games. Yeah!

You really need to work with retailers to get deals on the PSN cards. At least once a month MS Points are on sale, your go on sale maybe 1 time a year. Far too infrequent to get your store in gamers minds.

    + Ro Hernandez on March 8th, 2011 at 12:18 pm said:

    Correction, no discounts on New Release ‘Spotlights’; discounts only to featured older content (1 PS3 & 1 PSP) each week


+ FunkyTable on March 8th, 2011 at 11:10 am said:

Man, now I have to buy Tetris and Laura Croft. BLAST YOU SONY!

Just kidding, sounds like some great updates coming up, keep up the great work.


+ Ssnipo on March 8th, 2011 at 11:11 am said:


How much time left to store update?


+ Go_Buddie_Go on March 8th, 2011 at 11:12 am said:

A little disappointing to not see Under Siege on those list of upcoming games. Ohh well It’s not that bad really, I’ll be purchasing all those upcoming games anyway (Not sure about Moon Diver though) especially Slam Bolt Scrappers!! :D


+ YungShep on March 8th, 2011 at 11:12 am said:

lara Croft!!!!! i wonder how much of a discount we talking, i’ve been holding out on that one too. CASTLE CRASHERS, LARA CROFT AND MK DEMO..GIMMIE : )


+ ToDDLeS_1982 on March 8th, 2011 at 11:18 am said:

I’ve been waiting all day for this… finally!


+ TheMadSpin on March 8th, 2011 at 11:19 am said:

Plus has been well worth the investment, for those of you on the fence.

Especially since I’m a guy who would have picked up games like Stacking and a lot of the free PSOne classics at full price.

I mean–it doesn’t repair any of the issues with horrible online party/chat/multiplayer stuff, but since my PS3 is my single player machine, it’s only bolstered by an incredible stream of deals via Plus.

This week just keeps it going (Dead Nation here I come).


+ Autoxfool on March 8th, 2011 at 11:20 am said:

…just waiting on the update…

Would like to see all the games that were in the contest to be discounted….. Let us all experience what others voted on, esp since I don’t have a single one of those.

Cudos on the upcoming sale on Tetris…definately a buy and was waiting on a sale. :)


+ TwinDad on March 8th, 2011 at 11:21 am said:

Also thanks for the advanced warning. I like to be able to get a idea of what is on the horizon for the sale.


+ saveur on March 8th, 2011 at 11:22 am said:

Very excited for the Guardian of Light discount, I just downloaded and played the demo the other day and was blow away by the title’s quality. Will for sure pick that one up.

Now, down to business…


Beyond Good & Evil HD would be nice too…


+ AllStyle on March 8th, 2011 at 11:29 am said:

Im starting to lose my mind Waiting for the Store Update. All Kinds of Great Deals and the Mortal Kombat Demo for PS+ users..


+ Krakn3dfx on March 8th, 2011 at 11:30 am said:

Last year it was 50% off for everybody.

Apparently Sony IS taking something away from non-Plus subscribers.


+ Butters360 on March 8th, 2011 at 11:31 am said:

Sweetness. PSN is kicking it into high gear this year.


+ StargamerX on March 8th, 2011 at 11:32 am said:

So are those all of the games going on sale over the next month? If so, looking forwards to Castle Crashers and maybe Tetris.

Also, are all sales 30% / 50% off, or just the PSN Gamer’s Choice winners?


+ EJStrat on March 8th, 2011 at 11:36 am said:

The upcoming sales are pretty disappointing. Guess I’ll get tetris. The only other good one is Laura Croft, but I bought that when it first came out. Oh well. Discounts on Castle Crashers and Tetris is better than nothing, I assume if every PS3 owner bought 2 downloadable games during this sale you guys would [DELETED] with delight.


+ Yojimbo-Ratchet on March 8th, 2011 at 11:39 am said:

boring !!!!

other than dead nation, which doesn’t have a demo to invite potential buyers into actually buying the game, the other games listed for this promotion are do not peak my interest in any way whatsoever.

where are the classics ? the current big titles ? the hot games ? considering the countless titles which are available, along with add-ons and media related items, this list is weak imo.

i was actually looking forward to this event…. what a total let down :(


+ SuperTiso on March 8th, 2011 at 11:44 am said:

No, not now. I barely have any money left this week. I just got Killzone 3 off the PS RLS site today for $10. Please let Tomb Raider discounts be next week, not this week please. I’m already forced to get Ghost of Sparta this week now.


+ theXsilentXchild on March 8th, 2011 at 11:44 am said:

This sauce is weak.


+ AllStyle on March 8th, 2011 at 11:45 am said:
