“Yeah come on, Sony. Can’t you guys put everything on sale for free every week? What’s wrong with you? Actually, I think I should be getting paid for everything that I want. That’s the right way to do business! PLEASE PUT EVERY SINGLE 15 YEAR OLD PLAYSTATION CLASSICS GAME UP FOR SALE OR I WILL GO DRY HUMP MY 360 AND NEVER BUY ANYTHING SONY RELATED EVER AGAIN UNTIL NEXT WEEK WHEN SOMETHING COMES OUT THAT I WANT!!! I MEAN IT!!!”

Seriously if you complain about sales, you need to get a life.

So How long is Beyond Good and Evil Exclusive to Xbox? When is the other SOE games coming out? Akimi Village, Rochard, Sideways?

Was excited for Savage Moon until I realized it was the PSP version…any chance the PS3 version gets a discount too?

+ iTofuMan on March 8th, 2011 at 12:38 pm said:

Will be picking up Dead Nation!

its nice that Castle Crasher is getting a discount. i bought it some time ago, but online was dead. hopefully with this we see a lot of people playing online!

+ SolidusSquirrel on March 8th, 2011 at 12:41 pm said:

I would’ve bought Dead Nation and Castle Crashers if it was 50% off for everybody. Hopefully that trend doesn’t happen for the rest of the sales. Four of those games interest me.


61

+ tylerh1701 on March 8th, 2011 at 12:59 pm said:

If the timed exlusivity for Hard Corps Uprising and Beyond Good and Evil HD are the same, than BG&E will be available March 29.

Thanks, Grace!

And yes, I’m still kicking myself for not getting Plus, but I need a bigger hard drive first…

For anyone that doesnt know, Hard Corps is coming next week, March 15th.

+ megamixer on March 8th, 2011 at 1:13 pm said:

Next year please include PSOne & Minis (and I guess PSP2 games as well) in the Spring Fever sale. GCA had all four catergories represented but Spring Fever does not!

I’m still crossing my fingers for a Phantasy Star Portable 2 sale.. I’m so bummed that I missed the Christmas sale!


66

+ jebusid on March 8th, 2011 at 1:28 pm said:

I still do not understand something Mr. Ro Hernandez, because I do not have any discount on the games that won the vote? Castle Crushers specifically want to buy but the price marked on the store is $ 14.99. Is supposed to have a 50% discount. Would you like to know if I’m wrong?.


67

+ thebiglouie on March 8th, 2011 at 1:34 pm said:

I appreciate the heads-up on the games that will go on sale in the future. I won’t feel dumb about buying a game then seeing it discounted a few days later.


68

+ duke301 on March 8th, 2011 at 1:37 pm said:

The earlier the update comes, the better. My PS3 is going to be busy tonight. I’m jumping on Mortal Kombat and Dead Nation to start off with. Now I’m glad that I didn’t buy Dead Nation when it came out. Thank you Sony, for the updates and the sales.

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…

I am so confuzled by this comment.


73

+ Kirkpad on March 8th, 2011 at 2:09 pm said:

I’ll likely be getting Eat Them, Tetris, and maybe God of War if I have leftover funds. Also, what is the point of PS+ if regular users get a 50% discount in the second week anyways?


74

+ Pulseman on March 8th, 2011 at 2:15 pm said:

Please discount Konami’s Rocket Knight! Awesome game that is way underrated. It came out years ago but was never discounted except at the EU PSN store.

I just really hope the new hard drive I ordered off amazon hurries up and gets here soon, cuz I’m outta room to download new stuff. Once I get that 60gb out and the 500gb in, it’ll be smooth sailin lol

i was really hoping for dead nation to cost about $7.00 but what the heck, i’m tired of playing black ops SO here i go., going to kill me some dead nation zombie butt :)

Looking forward to nabbing Top Darts with the sale! :)

+ rjejr on March 8th, 2011 at 2:43 pm said:

Good news about Eat Them, my son will be very excited.

Question – since Sony seems to change the PS+ program at will, do we still get to keep stuff we pay for at a discount? I don’t want to pay half price for something and then have it taken away if Sony has reneged on that part of the deal as well.


80

+ snakeman07 on March 8th, 2011 at 2:54 pm said:

@ rjejr

From what I know, any discounts you get with PS+ you get to keep whatever it was for. Free games are another story.

+ Beatz2086 on March 8th, 2011 at 2:54 pm said:

When will the sale for Tetris start, Anybody know?


82

+ wilflare on March 8th, 2011 at 2:54 pm said:

any idea when we will be getting Beyond Good and Evil HD too?
Please let it be next week! :D for $9.99 too!


83

+ Neil on March 8th, 2011 at 3:24 pm said:

Wait this is unclear. When is Lara Croft going on sale? Today? Because it wasn’t noted in the PS Store update that just went up.


84

+ Kirkpad on March 8th, 2011 at 5:13 pm said:

Guys there is a different PSP and PS3 going to be on sale each week. Next week is likely Eat Them!, followed by Tetris the week after, then Laura Croft the week after that.


85

+ DPsx7 on March 8th, 2011 at 6:05 pm said:

That’s BS. Why isn’t the discount for everyone? PSN+ sucks because you don’t keep your content. Any minor discounts are just to ‘rent’ the game, and when I voted I was promised a 50% discount with no word it was tied to that lame program.


86

+ JamisonFitz on March 8th, 2011 at 8:17 pm said:

So wait, Games are 30% off for regular PSN members, and up to 50% off for PS+… But after one week regular PSN users will get the PS+ price? So it’d be cheaper to grab dead nation next week… ?

Does this only apply to the US store or will we see these discounts in the UK as well?

+ BigPoppaB on March 9th, 2011 at 6:57 am said:

PLEASE ANSWER THIS!

Did you say in the response to question 1 that all of the award winning games will be 50% off next week for ALL users?

So will Castle Crashers/Dead Nation be 50% next week for non-PS Plus members? If so, I’ll buy both of them next week instead of just 1 of them this week.


92

+ LlamaD on March 9th, 2011 at 7:26 pm said:

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.

Does this mean that Dead Nation will be 50% off for ALL user next week?

+ MercuryPDX on March 9th, 2011 at 11:40 pm said:

I am KICKING myself. I bought Castle Crashers at full price on Tuesday. :(

That’ll teach me. From now on I will just wait until a sale.


94

+ PaulQBall on March 10th, 2011 at 5:21 am said:

Clarification 30% off this week 50% next week ????? Why not 50% off from the get go ?????? If that’s the case I’ll wait till next week and buy MORE !!!! LMK Thanks

+ Bretman1975 on March 10th, 2011 at 7:09 am said:

Hey Geddy, did you check the new release dates? Amazon’s showing December 31st, and Best Buy’s showing September 6th. I’m looking forward to this one, too, and I’m disappointed it’s been pushed so far back.


96

+ BMJ2K7 on March 10th, 2011 at 11:45 am said:

So just to make sure, that this week the gamer choice winners will be 50% off for PS PLUS but next week the winners will be 50% to everyone, so for example next week DEAD NATION will be $7.49 to all users and that price for PS PLUS users this week?

Im not sure if this is a great deal but
im interested in the laura croft game


98

+ Daveasaraus on March 10th, 2011 at 9:38 pm said:

OH! by the way has anyone hears anymore about the Sony Ericson play station phone. I’m sure it will have lots of downloadable content offered by play station network and becoming a plus member will then be definitely worth it.

As other people have asked, can someone from Sony respond to the earlier Sony post:

The reason people are confused is that it doesn’t make sense. Why would ANYONE buy any of these games this week for a 30% discount when waiting until next week will get them an extra 20% off? None of these games are new, so whats another week? I suppose it provides some forced one week benefit for PS+ users, but thats about the only reason that I can find for doing the promo this way.

does anyone that posts on this blog actually read? the 30% and 50% discounts are just for this week. next week those games are not on sale, but there will be news games on sale each week all spring long, and Those games will be 50% off whether you have ps+ or not.
