Very nice. I’ve been wanting to get Shank, Chime, and Pac-Man, so this might be the opportunity to do just that.

Thank you for putting the BTTF games on sale after I paid $20 for them. Much appreciated.

Just so you know, I will no longer be buying Resistance 3, or ANY game I’m moderately interested in that has the PSN Pass (except for Starhawk, which I have to buy as an obligation for putting 700 hours into Warhawk). You are alienating your multiplayer base, and killing your community. The PSN is essentially no longer “free”.

Two games I wanted in this at great prices. I’m happy!

Here I come Hard Corps and Pac-Man!

    Firelogic – This makes sense, we’ll see what we can draw up! Thanks for the suggestion.

+ FunkyTable on July 7th, 2011 at 9:17 am said:

@NiteVersions. The PSN was always meant to be a feature included with the purchase of the system and the games that utilize it. It is a service provided for folks who buy Sony products. Therefore nothing has changed.

Risk Factions, Dead Space and Pac-Man…you will soon be MINE!

Going to pick up Risk: Factions.

+ Firelogic on July 7th, 2011 at 9:18 am said:

@NiteVersions
PSN is still free. If you buy the game new, you get full online functionality. If you buy the game used, well it’s quite obvious that you should pay to buy the pass for online functionality.

If you buy the game new, the developer/publisher gets money and they provide their gaming servers for online play at no extra cost to you.

If you buy the game used, the developer/publisher gets NOTHING. So why would you expect them to provide you with online functionality, which costs money, when you didn’t give them anything?

LOVED THE SALE! I was waiting for a price drop on BTTF :D

+ psychoqwirk420 on July 7th, 2011 at 9:20 am said:

Oh, and to those who don’t have Shank as of yet…I would SERIOUSLY consider trying it out. It’s pretty SWEET! I paid $5 for it with the EA Welcome Back sale. Definitely worth it!

+ BPinter on July 7th, 2011 at 9:21 am said:

AWESOME! Was planning to pick up Back to the Future soon anyway!

…and anyone that doesn’t have PacMan should definitely get it! GREAT game.

D’oh! Almost mistook this for some other, far better, summer sale. My bads!

Hey guys, does Sony have a PS3 web-store yet? Like say… one you can access from your PC and purchase stuff from? No? Shoot. I suppose its for the best. I shouldn’t be buying games now, I should be saving up $150 (AGAIN)… why you ask? No reason, no reason…

@FireLogic (13) and @FunkyTable
I agree with NiteVersions to some extent. You shouldn’t have to pay because you bought the game used. You do realize that Digital Games and this pass stuff is killing resale markets right? No more selling your old games to get new ones. I buy almost 100% new and even then, someone is getting the shaft by actually buying a game. Firelogic has it right though, why would a publisher support your online play if you didn’t pay them? Simple answer. because without players their online play sucks. I sell more games (marketing in my house from people seeing the game than most reps at Bestbuy do (but they are normally clueless anyway…least where I am)

Here’s the question for you both though. Do you think it’s really going to increase new games sales? Or just have sales drop off? I won’t be buying R3 or any other game using a pass system and anyone that would have played my used copy isn’t likely to go buy a new one either. Seems to me that’s costing money and dropping players out of games. Bad move if you ask me.

“If you buy the game used, the developer/publisher gets NOTHING. So why would you expect them to provide you with online functionality, which costs money, when you didn’t give them anything?”

But they already made the money from the previous person who bought it. I buy my games new, but this is my issue….I want to play with MORE people, and the used market is huge. Not only that, but my girlfriends account (this one, I’m mywhitenoise) would have to pay $10 to access online features unless she played under my account.

On a final note, if online is moving toward an “optional” mode, then they shouldn’t be included towards earning platinum trophies.

But man. Pac-Man. For $4.89. That’s tempting. I can spare that kind of change. Will Sony be updating their Amazon PSN store with these prices? Pretty please?

+ JaY_Ci_415 on July 7th, 2011 at 9:31 am said:

Scott Pilgrim and BTTF are mine for sure! A drink at a club costs more than each game for PS+ members so those are a lock for me. Thinking about Shank too.

+ Esena on July 7th, 2011 at 9:34 am said:

Wow. These are great deals. Planning on purchasing at least 5 of these games :)

+ EHngel on July 7th, 2011 at 9:38 am said:

Sounds like some good deals. Looking forward to some Dead Space: Extraction. Have a question though unrelated to this. When the ‘Welcome Back” program came into effect I acquired PS Plus for 1 month free. The 1 month is over now but I still have the Plus symbol beside my name in my friends list, same with all my friends that no longer have the service. When can I get rid of it? Will it leave on it’s own. It’s aesthetically ugly and I don’t want my participation with Plus to be advertised any longer. Please remove it for me and my friends, thanks!

I’ll get Tales from Space: About a Blob for $7.34, and Risk: Factions for $4.89, I have all the other games I wanted that are on sale already.

How about more DLC sales? There is some DLC for older games (Mirror’s Edge – $10 Time Trials) that is still the same price as launch, but the game itself is <$20 new.

And I want the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC back. :(

+ Basindo on July 7th, 2011 at 9:44 am said:

Yea!!! I only have like $7 in wallet but now Pacman is less than $5 kickass dude! If only Joe Danger got a price drop, $15 is a little too much for me. If it was $7-9 I would be running to get another PSN card.

@22
Just save up an extra hundred and get a slim in August. If you’re trying to keep a BC model alive just let it go. PS4 is 2 years away and by time you get through all those PS3 games you’ll be ready for BC during the Game Drought of 2013 on PS4 as you conclude Sony’s swan song for the PS3 before it enters the latter half of its 10 year life cycle.
