No demo for Dyad? I don’t like that. Should I still take the risk and buy it? I guess I’ll check some videos before I decide.

MvC2 for $5? Awesome!

Hey Morgan, I thought of an idea for PS Plus. I don’t know if you would ever consider something like this but what if Plus members got a permanent 20% off all PS1 Classics? I’ll put this on Share as well and see what happens.

PSVita – Why can’t we sort/create folders in Photos? Why can’t we get ps3 game videos on vita? Why isn’t the PS Vita Store showing MLB Vita as $29.99 like the earlier blog reported the new price to be? Come on guys, Vita action is still slow. Use that downtime to do something productive.

Do any other Plus members find themselves disinclined to purchase games, in the hopes / expectations that they will be offered for “free” down the road? Morgan, what are your thoughts on this? Possible market cannibilization?

    + Morgan Haro on July 17th, 2012 at 1:22 pm said:

    We take care of our partners who place their games free in Plus; so they don’t see cannibalization. As for us, we’re all for more Plus members as it leads to healthier appetites for downloadable content all around, which is an overall win for us. Obviously we need to have a close eye though at what goes in the Instant Game Collection, but I’m afraid as a gamer, we can’t offer insight into what games are coming free super far down the road; so you may be waiting for a while!

@13 & 37, Demonbird & goofey12- Looks like Zen Studios needs more time before they release it; let’s hope the update drops next week!

@42, polo155- Thanks for the input, VT Tennis will be mine when I get home! ;)

@46, Victoryismine52- The digital pricing scheme for PSN cannot be compared to other platforms like the PC/mobile market. As much as we want to (since we view it as another means to play games), it’s a different market. Console makers & content devs & publishers have a say in the base/sale price point- if there is a servere price change on PSN it would ONLY be mirrored on MS Live.

Um Sony should everyone buying a vita or already has a vita worry about this article I found on a tech website about OLED screens?

Everybody got all hot and bothered about Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screens a year or three ago, but the darn things still don’t seem to last much longer than 2000 hours.

(Well, technically it’s just the blue OLEDs that don’t last very long; green lasts a lot longer and red lasts for ages. But people don’t seem all that crazy about paying for a TV that turns yellow, then red.)

Which is a bit of a problem. We can already make desktop-sized OLED screens, as well as the tiny ones you can buy on some phones and cameras and MP3 players today, but nobody wants to make desktop OLEDs if the things can still be expected to die in one year if you use them for 5.5 hours a day.

Some companies allege they’re well on the way to big commercial OLED displays, to be manufactured as soon as this year, and we’ve seen some impressive prototypes, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

No Dyad demo… It looks like such an odd game that I’m not willing to risk $12 and absolutely hate it. But once the demo comes along, I’ll probably want to “wait for a sale” and since the PSN discount expires 7/24, I’m guessing I won’t be buying it. What a shame. :(

Hey Morgan would you go for Rainbow Moon or Dyad, can only get one this week. Which would you recommend.?

    tough call since they’re both awesome games. if you’re really looking for a new SRPG, Rainbow Moon. but if you want to play a crazy game which has gameplay that really haven’t been done before; go with Dyad.

Not much of an update, but Vita sales… well I’ll be damned.

More Warriors Orochi 3 DLC is certainly a plus too.

Shame the Steam sales has robbed me blind this week.

I guess I’ll be grabbing the free PSOne games and definitely buying Dyad, but since this update is focused on “The Games” and I’m not a huge fan of sports, not much else for me here. 5 Stars for a huge variety and good discounts, though. Two more weeks in July, looking forward to Zen Studios hitting their ETA for ZP2!

Since OLED screens only last so many hours before going out then I guess the vita isn’t a good investment and I might as well go back to walmart and buy a psp back so I can play all my ps one classics and psp digital games with ease.

@estoc1

Dude… it’s awsome to see another person so passionate about Neo-Geo games but… seriously, just “find another way” to play them. I think SNK have given up on the Neo-Geo Station experiment, so don’t blame Sony about this one.

RENEGADE-Xx-xX, that 2,000 hour figure must be about very early blue OLEDs. I find it very hard to believe an OLED manufactured in late 2011 (when the Vita came out in Japan) would only have a lifespan of 2,000 hours. Recent articles point towards 14,000 hours, not 2,000 hours. I have not seen a recent article say 2,000 hours.

why dose one lil game take so long to process it should b so simple not much diff then the psp

Weak Plus offering, but I’ve felt that way ever since the twelve games in rotation started–it was a nice boon all at once but since then it’s been a slower trickle of new free games than before. Ah well. I’m still hopeful it’ll get better. For a while Plus was on FIRE!

Wondering if the Dyad demo will be out before the sale ends. Hmmmm.

    considering the sale is for one week, I don’t think the demo will be making it in. But reviews are incredibly strong for the game, so it’s a pretty safe bet.

The article I read was from Dec 2011. Not that long ago that said 2000 hours.

@ estoc1

YO WTF DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!?!?!!! JUST BECAUSE SONY DOESN’T HAVE THE GAMES YOU REQUESTED DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO BASH THEM. AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION THEY ARE SNK GAMES ON PSN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TO SEARCH FOR WHAT GAME YOUR LOOKING FOR FOR SNK AND THERE IT IS. SOMEONE WITH A 5 YEAR OLD BRAIN LIKE YOURS SHOULD KNOW HOW TO DO THAT. AND ANOTHER THING TO MARIO AND ZELDA MAYBE THE OLDEST FRANCHISE BUT THERE NOT THE ABSOLUTE BEST. GRANTED FOR LASTING THIS LONG THEY DESERVE CREDIT BUT SINCE THEN SONY HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT THE TOP OF THERE GAME WITH RELEASES LIKE STARHAWK. YOUR NOTHING MORE THEN A WII FANBOY WHO DOESN’T BELONG HERE WHY DON’T YOU DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND TAKE THAT WII MOTE TURN IT SIDE WAYS AND STICK STRAIGHT UP YOUR CANDY ASS………….O WAIT SINCE YOUR WII FANBOY YOU PROBABLY DID THAT IT’S ENTIRE LIFE CYCLE.

Wow. Just read through the comments. Some harsh, all-caps comments on here. Let’s keep it cool, let’s get along and have fun, eh? At the end of the day Sony provides us with an amazing service on a great console. See you guys in LBP Karting!

Another vote for bringing the Konami sale on the DLC for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow to the U.S. (UK already got it). Please!

Yipee! Free Mass Effect 3 DLC!

I just hope there’s another sale on DYAD down the road after the demo is released. I just got too much backlog and other things on my wish list to take a chance.

Also, how come the PS Plus sale price for Top Spin 4 ($14.69) is the same as the non-member price (listed under “The Games Sale”)? There may be others, but that’s the one that interested me.

Thanks for the feedback devilmosh! Been hearing nothing but good things. Worried the demo might not drop in time to take advantage of the sale, so I’ll definitely grab it before the sale ends if it looks like that’ll be the case. Doesn’t seem like much of a risk!

I already own Record of Agarest War 2(would’ve bought it digitally If I had known it was coming out but oh well) It is an excellent game you will not be disappointed! Nice to see a price change on those PSP games will look into those one day especially Blazing Souls. and I picked up the free Mass Effect 3 and Record of Agarest War 2 dlc. Good week if you ask me!
