Last years summer sale included PSP games Mini and the discount was 50% across the board. This year we get less variety and less incentive. :(

Sure, I’ll do that if Sony refunds me $300! I want what I purchased or I want my money back :D

Nice sale. Def. going to collect on BttF, Pacman and About a Blob.

(also, to the guy crying about PSN “not free” … just wait for the game to go on sale or drop price due to age. then you can buy it new and still get the pass. It’s not going to bother me any and my wallet will thank me anyway. $60 is just too much for a single title to me, unless it’s something that contains 100+ hrs of content. I’ve been burned twice with “empty” games … no more, i always wait for the price drop now.)

3 of those games are definitely on my radar as a “buy for sure.” 2 of those I’m tempted, but on the fence since I’m not fully interested. I’ll make a decision by the time the sale starts.

I was hoping for Ratchet and Clank Quest For Booty would be on sale, but it isn’t.
Nothing here really interest me in this sale, but I might pick up Hustle Kings later. LOL

There aren’t even trophies for Quest for Booty which is disappointing. Cool, short game but just an FYI in case you care about Trophies. Other than that they should’ve been put it on sale as it’s about 3 yrs old now if I’m correct.

+ KillerDante on July 7th, 2011 at 10:11 am said:

@5 NiteVersions : You know that PSN PASS is free with every new game. They are not alienating the people that buy the game new but people who rent or buy used. The only bad part about this is if two users in the same household have the game and thus one must buy the pass but it is going to be a common practice for all companies to do this. BTW Risk is all mine now and is Hard Corps any good?

@24 VampHuntD Just save your money and buy new games! Or wait for a sale like buy two get one free from Toys R Us. They probably are going to sell less, but people will be more selective, and we will have better quality games. They are going to make a profit!!! They see no profits off of used games, so I see nothing wrong with having an online pass. I never sell my games, so it doesn’t affect me in any way. I’m tired of people complaining about the online pass, buy new games and shut up!!! And I have gone for a new game over a used (Dead Space 2) because of the pass and will again. If they end up costing the same amount and I want to play the game, why would you not? Developers may put rip off shops like Gamestop out of business. The sole purpose of the online pass was to bring money back to the developers. Gamestop makes a killing ripping kids off giving them pennies for a game and then selling it back at 75% more. Meanwhile, developers see nothing from the transaction.

Ohh, blame Sony for not calling you personaly before you’ve made this purchase! I know right, no service at all! People on Internet are getting funnier to read every day. Priceless.

Curses! I saw the sale and immediately added funds to my wallet…now I see that it doesn’t start until the 12th! Curses! Curses! XD

And why are people complaining about the PSN Pass thing? Just buy the game new if you want to play online for free.

I know this is off topic but I notice alot of complaints on every blog post I read. I got to be honest I know ppl tend to be babies but you PS Blog guys are kinda to blame for it. I read both the U.S. and EU blogs and it’s seems that the EU guys at least care enough to answer some of the more negative comments which helps stop the 50 similar post that will pop up. You guys on this blog are the Sony Online PR. machine and you are doing a bad job of it. I get it I’m sure you get tired of the negative posts, I know I am, well then help curb them by answering some of them. I know it’s not easy but it would help.

On another note great sale I plan on purchasing like half that list next week can’t wait!!

Thanks for the heads-up! It’s always good to know in advance so people don’t buy the game full price ten minutes before it goes on sale. And I’ve been looking for an excuse to pick up Chime, PixelJunk Shooter 2, and Hard Corps. Tuesday will be a good day. p.s. I’ll second the motion for a PSP/Minis sale – been really enjoying the PS+ minis lately.

Kind of old games, I owned most of them already. Also I wanted to say that I Just cancelled my Resistance 3 pre-order. Why I’m doing this if I was planning to buy the game brand new? Because I vote with my wallet, if I purchase the game as a costumer I’m saying that I’m ok with this and I’m not:
1) Charging for the online will decrease the number of players online, not increase the sales.
2) I’m already paying to have a “premium online experience” is called PS+.

+ FunkyTable on July 7th, 2011 at 11:02 am said:

@vamphuntD

Yes, I do realize that this practice is targeting the immoral used game market that should not exist. I do not support the used games market because it is robbing the developers of their profit.

If the used game ended tomorrow, plenty of people will whine and complain, but they’d get back in line and buy new games again.

I’m not here to coment about this new… i’m here because I listened that you’re about to implement a online pass in you’re game, and it will just work in one acount, I think it’s not fair for the people who have two acounts in their ps3 ( because for what i have been hearing) if my brother and I buy a game… the pass just works in my profile, and he will not be able to play online… even if he to payed for the game… that not looks good to me, I just wish you consider it thank you…

sorry for my bad english and I don’t know where can I talk about this.. thats why i’m saying it here…

@NiteVersions
You still don’t get it do you? If I buy Resistance 3 new, they get $60 from me and they provide me with online gaming. If you buy my copy of Resistance 3, yes they got $60 out of that copy of the game already but instead of covering the cost of 1 person playing online (me), they’re cover 2 people, (me and you).

Furthermore, who’s to say you wouldn’t have bought Resistance 3 new if there was no used game market? Maybe not on day 1 but a month down the line when it’s on sale. That’s still a new copy.

Anyway, stop derailing the Summer Sale topic. Online Passes are here to stay so either live with it, or give up your hobby. And that’s all gaming is, a hobby. No one is entitled to anything.

You’re not paying for a premium online service with PS+. You’re paying for discounts and freebies, a la Costco membership/Sam’s Club membership.

You cancelled your preorder? Well, your loss. I hope you haven’t purchased any EA published game because if you did, you’re a colossal hypocrite.

I like how PS+ isn’t so much saving Plusers money as it is charging more to non-plusers. Sony’s big sales always used to be 50% off for all, now only 30% off to non plusers.

All [DELETED] aside, nice sales. But isn’t Swarm normally $15, meaning half off would be 7.50 and 30% off is 10.50?

@ Ro

Now that’s what I’m talking about Ro. You were right, I am very happy with what is coming out next week! This is a great selection of Summer games and it’s too bad I didn’t wait till now to get some of them because I already bought most of them, but hey whatever you win some you lose some.

Out of all of those I have Shank & Pacman which are both AWESOME GAMES at Jaw Dropping discounts here. I know I will definintly be picking up Scott Pilgrim (Again Thanks Ro ;-) and Back to the Future. If I still have some money left I might even pick up the Tales from Space game. Will have to see how my Wallet holds up.

Oh BTW Ro could you check out my comment on the latest PS+ release and pass it on to your higher ups. Hope it makes sense to them and they implement my suggestions.

END THE PSN PASS!!!

I will no doubt buy your 1st party games new this year but the idea of a 1st party publisher using an online pass is IMO ridiculous and I’ve stood by Sony’s decisions for quite some time now but this is foolish especially after the PSN fiasco that happened 3 months ago that tarnished Sony’s reputation the gaming space. People already have an iffy opinion of whether or not to play on PSN and from my gameplay experiences, 1st party PS3 games (Uncharted notwithstanding) have a very small online community. You are halving your online userbase by instituting these in your games, especially Resistance 3 and Twisted Metal, two games that are getting a lot of attention for their multiplayer. I want to be able to play with hundreds of thousands of people in Resistance 3 and Twisted Metal not ten thousand…these games have online campaign co-op, and regardless of whether they bought the games used I want to be able to play with them as well.

You advertise with the words “free online gaming,” how is charging $9.99 (assuming) for a PSN Pass free??? You might as well remove that statement from each newly printed PS3 box because its officially not true anymore.

WILL THE DISCOUNTS ALSO BE APPLIED TO DLC?

I know I’m a cheapskate (which is made up for by how much I buy), but I couldn’t refuse the Knives Chau DLC at that kind of discount!

Oh, and THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING A PSP SALE!! Hopefulyl Half-Minute Hero could be in it? Especially considering the XBLA version’s five bucks less than it ATM.
