I really would love to see some Vita deals like Europe PSN got. Pretty bummed that the Vita is completely excluded from the summer sale :(

+ Slaysme on June 29th, 2012 at 9:54 am said:

Apparently, SCEA doesn’t want my money. It’s ridiculous to have such massive sales clearly published for the EU sectors while not dropping a cent for the US. I u der stand publishing , blah blah. But this is playstation, a Japanese company. The shooting people play cod, or on the Redmond based console. We want vita sales, and RPGs. KNow your true fans apart from the kids who just need free online. Your sale is wimpy. I’ll buy vita games used instead, until you at least somewhat match the eu sale on launch titles and Psp software. GameStop gives you most pf the the online codes anyways, it’s on your receipt.

I know the rest of your fans are tired of the “vita whining”. Fix your issues with vita software compatibility and sale prices, and research your demographics again. Stop chasing the fps crowd, they’re all about to go PC anyways. Support strong ips like gravity rush, MGS, The entire JRPG genera, etc. don’t let a few dollars now detract the big pic. Rember rock band? Cod will meet it there in the ether realms.

Sale sucks. Give us what we wants, not rehashes of games that have been on sale withing the last year.

    Slaysme,

    I’m absolutely listening to your feedback on this. Several other folks have mentioned the Vita in this post, and while there is certainly a clear focus on PS3 games here, I can respect your position. I’ll take this feedback that you’ve provided and make sure it’s heard here at Sony.

+ watsinaname on June 29th, 2012 at 9:57 am said:

Not sure if someone asked for it already or if it makes enough business sense to Sony, but a sale price for some of the Vita titles would be awesome. There are so many games that I would snap if only a bit of discount was offered. Well, actually am on the fence, but the discount would make me jump.


55

+ AsiaQatar on June 29th, 2012 at 9:57 am said:

Ok my guess as to why Renegade Ops and PAC Man are not on the list?
The podcast guys got their info a little wrong and these 2 games will be free for PS+ members on Tuesday as the other 3 games are rotated out.
The third free game? Motorstorm Apocolypse.
Watch…

These are some nice, nice prices, I could get Festival of Blood, Killzone 3 Multiplayer and Gotham City Impostors for only 20 dollars.

I hope you make some discounts on the PS1 Final Fantasy games.

I’m not angry, or complaining. I actually think it’s kind of funny now. It’s like a running joke how Sony is going out if its way to ignore the Vita now.

I just bought Shadow of the Colossus / ICO twin pack from amazon for $20. Better deal IMO, both games and not digital copies.

+ TwinDad on June 29th, 2012 at 10:13 am said:

@Paul Sullivan,

When you bring up Slaysme’s Vita concern can you also bring up the lack of RPG games on sale? It seems every time a sale comes up RPG games are strangely absent.

I’m hopping to get some more sales! What about Dead Space for a good price as Crysis? Great Deal!

I’ll problably buy Crysis, 9 dollars, sweet!

+ AlexLucard on June 29th, 2012 at 10:23 am said:

Have you guys thought about doing a sale for older stuff to reignite interest. Like perhaps Folklore, Valkyria Chronicles 1, and other games from the “before trophies” era?

Also, I’m still a bit sad that Europe’s PS+ got free Fallout 3 DLC and we never did.

Its been some months that I’m wanting to buy Infamous FoB,I’m really glad that I waited lol….thanks to my low space on the HDD…now I’ll definitely buy.

@kamisa29 – KZ3 has one of the best Multiplayer EVER.Its really addictive.To be honest is the 2nd best online ever made.I really recommend and if you want a partner to play if you’re a “objective man” then add me.

I have both Crysis and Infamous Festival of Blood and they are good, fun games. Easy Platinum trophy for Crysis and easy to get 100% of the trophies for Festival of Blood.

+ tanuki-hulk on June 29th, 2012 at 10:34 am said:

Lot of people comparing the Sony America with Sony EU here, saying that the European sale is better etc. However, from the view point of someone living in Japan all I can say is that both America and Europe have got it good. Sony Japan treats it customers like crap. First, there are almost never sales, and when there are they are not even half as good as these ones, which is not saying much because these are not the best sales I have seen for the North American PSN. Second, Playstation Plus in Japan is a true joke. For example, this month North American PS Plus users got 12 free games in NA and 10 free games in the EU, while in Japan we got one free, and I cannot stress the word “one” enough, ps one game. I mean Sony Japan is basically slapping its customers in the face. I just can’t fathom what Sony is thinking. Do they not know the internet exists and that their Japanese customers might just check what is going on overseas?. Look at Apple, it has one app store and one music store for the whole freaking world. (I know this argument might be faulty but it is just how I feel). I enjoy Sony products and want to support them, but I am finding it harder and harder when I see money grubbing at such a level.

Hello.

Will there be new titles on sale every week for a while or is this all we get?

As a long time plus member I already have these games, just like last summer I already had all of those.

Please put something different on the list or add more games next week. Perhaps a sale on a game that’s relatively new so everyone doesn’t have it already.

It feels like as a plus member I’m constantly being punished for not waiting 6 months to buy a game…

Thank you.

That’s it?!! Sorry to be negative but that list is really disappointing. Where’s Journey? MGS Collection, Jak & Daxter, oddworld stranger’s wrath hd. The only one I’m mildly interested in is Crysis. I already have Festival of Blood and SotC HD, I recommend that to everyone because that’s a great game with a great price.

@97 – I know it’s not great, which is why I’ve held off on buying it up until this point. However for $9.79 for all the episodes combined it’s much more tempting. Plus like any game, if you’re a serious fan of that property/fiction to begin with, you’ll most likely enjoy the game more than someone who’s not.
