The LBP Karting deal is awesome. I bought it at $39 and it was worth every dollar. Sadly, the game must not have sold well for such an extreme price cut this early.

Other than that, nothing too much for me this week. But seriously, jump on the LBPK deal if you don’t have it!! The game is great

Nice to see Foosball 2012 getting some love. Played that game a bunch during the Summer.

escapeVektor should be $4.99. Booo

Not happy with this +update.

Couldn’t you guys have put up the Jak Collection and Ratchet and Clank Trilogy on sale instead of the first game in the series. I’ve never played any of those games so I would have bounced at the opportunity to get the collections. Unfortunately since it’s only the first game I won’t be getting it :( Although thanks for the discount on the unfished swan

Well, the sale is about it for me. Might pickup Unfinished Swan. But after last week I wasn’t expecting anything major.

will this also be available in the EU (i don’t want stupid final fantasy games sorry)
please

+ ResistanceGTA on January 21st, 2013 at 10:08 am said:

Discounts for me. All in all, a rather nice sale, if you need to add to your collection, some of these are a steal for sure. I own most of them, but I will pick up a few things. Downloading the demo for Unfinished Swan to speed up the process tomorrow. And look, they are all 75% off, not up to that, so that’s always a good sign.

Looking forward to Gamers Choice more though, when we get to make the decisions, that was an amazing sale last year.

+ FoggyRock on January 21st, 2013 at 10:09 am said:

Foosball. That’s the free new game for the Vita? Way to go Sony for not showing the Vita any love. I know that I won’t be recommending PS Plus subscriptions to any Vita owners that come in to the game store I work at if that’s the type of support that’s going to be given to the Vita.


15

+ JTruF210 on January 21st, 2013 at 10:09 am said:

This is a really good sale. Another throw away free game though, but I wouldnt expect much when there’s 75% off some really good games. Thanks

+ Kieferw on January 21st, 2013 at 10:09 am said:

Actually the sale is quite nice lbpk for 10 its still 59.99 in a few stores, psychonauts and Machinarium all awesome

    Yeah definitely a lot of great games to choose from. I’ll likely pick up Warp since I missed it when it came out but always heard good things.

LBP Karting will be mine. Still would like to see some more free themes added, preferably non-game specific ones.

Morgan, will NHL Game Center be back, now the NHL is back? I noticed that the app was free, but not the subscription, but I also recall seeing it in the Plus menu last year (I wasn’t a plus member until June). How did that work, and will it come back?

Thank you Playstation for your continued effort to bring us great content and amazing variety. The discounts are something that I used to not really care about, but after acually looking at how much money im saving on excellent title, I cant help but go down and throw some more money on my account. Thanks a lot guys, but one request would be to throw up some more avatars for the older generation, most of em i fend to be a little too young for me.

+ Christian399 on January 21st, 2013 at 10:12 am said:

Only exciting thing this week is a digital version of Ni No Kuni. Please get that backlog and future release calendar of JRPGs out digitally as well, Morgan.

Some of these games, especially the NISA ones, are impossible to find.

How are PS2 Classics chosen?

I’d like to see Dragon Quest 8 and some the Shin Megami Tensei games show up, are they voted on or nominated?


    Morgan Haro's Avatar

     

    + Morgan Haro on January 21st, 2013 at 11:06 am said:

    Regarding how PS2 Classics are chosen: Combination of technical considerations (the games are being emulated on PS3; it’s not the same tech that originally powered them), publisher approvals on the individual games, and any miscellaneous licensing issues.

+ IzoGray on January 21st, 2013 at 10:14 am said:

Foosball as a free game better be a joke.

I don’t think anyone has ever even wished that it take up a free game spot on Plus.

This better not be it for Vita/PS3 Plus content.

Just terrible.


26

+ YungShep on January 21st, 2013 at 10:14 am said:

the 13 for 13 easily make up for free foosball. but at least more people can try it, i bought it last year and couldn’t get online with anyone, it features cross-game play as well for anyone curious


27

+ saab01 on January 21st, 2013 at 10:15 am said:

Thanks for the free Foosball was not expecting this at all to go free anytime soon.

I do have a question I will be leaving the country soon for 2 weeks and I don’t want to miss out on any items available through plus what can I do to not miss out?

I wish the website had an option to purchase stuff from the Playstation Store and set to download on my PS3. I hope this issue will be resolved soon.

I’ve been holding my tongue on these plus updates for the last month or so, but I can’t do it any longer. This update is absolutely horrible. You should be embarrassed.

The sale is great, Foosball though. I hope the remainder of my year for PS+ is better than these offerings for my vita portion of the service.

Also the Demos. Thanks again!

+ triedallthem on January 21st, 2013 at 10:16 am said:

These aren’t “some of the best games available on PSN”, but they’re not bad picks. I only am thinking about getting one or two of them, if i get any. Also, I thought u guys finally figured out what kind of games people are looking for on Plus, but apparently I was wrong. We’re not looking for Foosball, we need more games like Borderlands, Bioshock, or Darksiders. I would personally like to see another shooter, maybe Killzone. Thanks for trying though SONY

+ UltimateDisco on January 21st, 2013 at 10:16 am said:

I hate to be that guy, but Little Big Planet Karting dropping so tremendously is due to a couple factors; sales are bad, and it’s just not that good of a game. It feels very bland and boring, which is a shame, because LBP is a brilliant series. Even at $10 for Plus members, I don’t recommend it.

As for the other 13-for-13 deals, The Unfinished Swan for $3.75?! Are you kidding?! That is fantastic! Warp, Shank 2, and Machinarium are all steals for Plus members, too! You can literally get all four of the games for just over $10. Now that’s what I call a deal!

Thanks a ton, gentlemen. I’ll definitely be getting some new games this week! Next time, how about you let us know a little more about the Vita… and how about a massive price drop on the insanely prices memory cards already.

+ Kchow23 on January 21st, 2013 at 10:17 am said:

By far the sale is the only thing really exciting this week… why do we keep getting super niche title that probably didn’t sell at all in the first place.


38

+ Volcomkewl on January 21st, 2013 at 10:18 am said:

So Darksiders last week for free,
And then you give us this…Foosball…
Are you kidding me? Just when i though ps+ was getting good, you give us this! Come on! Europe gets a hell of a lot better games than this! Why can’t America have the same good stuff as Europe? I mean my god, is that too much to ask?

+ luxuriasin on January 21st, 2013 at 10:18 am said:

Any reason the Vita was excluded from the sale or do you guys have a small, unannounced sale coming up this week for it? Kind of disappointing to see only PS3 games on that list. Can’t forget about us! D:

There’s a few games I’ll be taking a look at, such as Unfinished Swan and maybe Little Big Planet Karting, but I would have liked to see Vita games involved in this sale. I’m curious to spend more time with Resistance, but the demo didn’t impress me enough to spend full price at retail or digital for it. Which is a shame, because I’m pretty hungry for an FPS or 3PS to take advantage of the Vita’s wonderful control scheme.
