What about X-Men? I

I would jump on Scott Pilgrim Vs The World but it doesn’t have multiplayer unfortunately.

I haven’t seen X-Men drop price yet but if it would i’d jump on it. Love the old school games.

I’m going to buy “Back to the Future”. Even if it’s not very good I can listen to Christopher Lloyd talk. Been thinkin g about it for awhile and now the thinking is over.
I’m on free trial version of PLUS and maybe I’ll even sign up for good. If I don’t because I pay for it, I can still keep the games I pay for if I don’t re-up for Plus. I don’t know how it works for free games.
Bye! I’ve got a car to catch.

First I am excited that Back to the Future is on sale for $10 bucks. I will be picking that up. Wish there were more psn exclusives. I might pick up pixeljunk shooter 2.

Second… Online passes. I think these are a joke. They say its so the developers can make more money on the game but that seems like bs. In this time in gaming everything is online. If they want to make more money on it make some add ons and map packs instead. Dont charge me an extra $10 bucks because i dont buy your game new. I rarely buy new games. I have gamefly and blockbuster express so i can play more games for my money. I buy a lot of used games as well. I wanna know how many people are really paying for the online passes anyway!

Somehow, and I’m not sure how as I peruse this site daily, I have never heard of or read about Swarm. Regardless, thanks for the sale; even though my extra cash this month will be going to the awesome PlayStation Plus users special offer of Borderlands + 4 DLC for $14.99 on 07/19.

@155

If you want to enjoy the perks of the Playstation Plus then just sign up for it. That’s the beauty of the whole thing, it’s OPTIONAL. I for one am very happy to take advantage of the 50% off. I certainly hope that you enjoy your 30% off as well. Also, for those of us who pay for the Playstation Plus, we should get better deals. That’s the whole point of choosing to upgrade.

@lbpmagician — Your BTTF wait ended a few days earlier with Steam’s Sale.

@Sony Corp. – Once again, a day late and a dollar short. I would have gotten BTTF off PSN if Steam’s sale didn’t beat you to the punch. More so a bummer that I’m on my 30 days of free plus.

The psn pass is only killing the ps3, thanks to this brilliant idea we won’t find users playing online.
My neighbor has a ps3, he borrows games from me and I do too, so now to play a game that I’m only gonna be playing at least 1 week I’ll have to pay $20 dollars (and my neighbor too). That’s just ridiculous!!!

I hope more users understand what the psn pass is all about, because I’m 100% sure that my case is not the only one. Sony PSN pass will just fail!!!

Awesome to see Scott Pilgrim on the sale. i already have the game, and glad that people can get it on sale.

Would be nice to have a psp sale, but considering the lack of psp content on the psn store i doubt we will see one since we all know Sony “LOVES” to support the psp…. Sarcasm if you didnt notice.

“Also, for those of us who pay for the Playstation Plus, we should get better deals.”
You’re not getting better deals. You’re paying to get the *same* deals you previously got without PS+. I linked to the 2010 Summer Sale PS Blog a page or so back. It was 50% off for *everybody*. “Better deals” would entail them giving PS+’rs 51% and higher off.

Summer Sale 2008: 50% off each game.
- /2008/07/24/playstation-store-update-44/
Summer Sale 2009: 50% off each game (sans Wipeout HD).
- /2009/07/16/playstation-store-update-94/
Summer Sale 2010: 50% off each game.
- 2010/08/02/playstation-network-summer-sale-fat-princess-pixeljunk-chinatown-wars-and-more/
Summer Sale 2011: 50% off each game if you purchased that discount.

Keep on drinking that kool-aid…


176

+ ASILENTENIGMA on July 7th, 2011 at 7:09 pm said:

@176

Oh my mistake. I guess it still must be 2008, 2009, or 2010. The world isn’t static, everything changes. You can’t expect to get the same deal as you had before, you should put down the kool-aid yourself. It doesn’t matter what happenned in 2008, 2009, or 2010. Right now it’s 2011 and there’s this thing called Playstation Plus. Right now the deal is 30% for the regular users and 50% for Plus users. Let’s see which is the better deal, 50% off or 30% off???? Deal with it, it’s not that hard of a concept to understand.

I’m not paying just for the deals. I’m paying for EVERYTHING that’s included with Playstation Plus, which just so happens to include extra deals. Again, if you are that unhappy just sign up for Playstation Plus. People who complain about not being able to take advantage of something that is an offering tied to an upgraded service, is just hilarious. But then again, Sony could just open the doors to the Playstation store without any worries, right? The last thing a company needs to worry about is making money, right? Let’s just give everything away for free, right?

“Right now it’s 2011 and there’s this thing called Playstation Plus.”
PS+ existed in 2010.
“People who complain about not being able to take advantage of something that is an offering tied to an upgraded service, is just hilarious.”
I’m not complaining. I was merely pointing out that you are not getting better deals. You’re merely getting the same deals you got before. Though this time around it is at a price.

@JesseGr
I’m not getting any discount period. My PS3 is dead for the third time in four years. My PSP and PSP Go still work, but for some reason they decided to snub PSP in this years summer sale. By the way, my PS+ trial is still active throughout the length of this sale so I would be getting the full discount if, you know, I still had a functioning PS3. Or better yet if Sony had a PSN web store!

Well, I guess I have to ask you, what are you doing with your PS3 that you had to replace it 3 times? I doubt you got 3 factory duds in a row. Are you playing 20+ hrs straight a day? Or running folding@home 24/7.

I’ve owned every Playstation model and never had to replace one of them.

+ megamixer on July 7th, 2011 at 8:17 pm said:

@JesseGr
Well, I do have 89 PS3 games (28 retail, 47 PSN, 16 PSOne) so I have certainly put the system through its paces. On my original PS3 I did run folding@home a number of times but its only been ran maybe three times on my current dead console. Rarely do I ever have the system on 20 hours a day, whether it be gaming, watching videos, listening to music, being in HOME, or simply idling on the XMB. 10~14 hours a day would be a closer estimate though much of that tme is often idling.

Much like 360s, launch 20/60 gb PS3s are destined to die due to a design defect. MS was taken to town over this situation while Sony gets a pass since considerably fewer people bought those early systems making the situation seem less abnormal. Yet even throughout 3 system deaths (and much more, really I could go on…) I sit here willing to partake in this summer sale and get me some Pac-Man love. That is, if I’m not charged to replace my PS3 yet again. If not then… rest easy. You’ll be seeing a lot less of me around these parts (and that doesn’t mean I’m going to up and buy a 360. No thank you! I’ll make due with my handhelds). :)

On a side note, hope to see more psn update like this one coming 7/12. Has been kind of slow last month or so. But these look like some nice deals on some good games. tys

I agree with most on how PSN passes are can be a pain to deal with and I will most definitely not buy any PSN pass related game (except for PSP games), but I would at least consider the PSN pass if it allowed a CONSOLE to be “passed” just like a downloaded game can be played by any individual on a system its downloaded on, because after all only one person can be online with a given system at the same time (unless there is split screen and even then there is usually multi-account split screen, but Uncharted 3 has it right) so the servers will only have to work as if one user uses the code. Come on Playstation at least do this if you want to be fair.

@megamixer

Just go to Amazon.com they have the equivalent of a PSN web store or download MediaGo which has the PSN Store you would find in a PS3.(though I hate that you can’t just download the PSN Store instead of the entire media program)

+ megamixer on July 7th, 2011 at 10:22 pm said:

@TheGrimHeaper
It was worth the full $20 for me (though I may not ever get to experience the fifth episode) and at $10 you really can’t go wrong!

@Chuck57841
Amazon doesn’t know or verify if you have PS+ therefor it will only have the 30% discount applied. I have Media Go but it features only things from the PSP store. Nothing for PS3 can be viewed or purchased from it. :( Plus I really shouldn’t be thinking about buying a game for a console I may no longer have. :|

Since this PSN Pass rumor has hijacked this blog, I have a question:

How does the system know the game disc is new or used? Do you have to register your ID & put in some 12 digit code when you go multiplayer? I always buy new but never do multiplayer. I have played online, such as Demon Souls & all the Dragon Age but I never had to enter a code.

I have another question: Surely you’ve all noticed the plethora of generic avatars the last few days. Like mine. Something is blocking our avatars on the blog only. Anybody know why & how we can fix?
