Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Out Today on PS3 and PS Vita

Glen Egan's Avatar + Posted by Glen Egan on Feb 05, 2013 // President, Sanzaru Games

The day has finally arrived! Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time goes on sale today in North America. We are so stoked with how the game came together; this is a very proud moment for the whole team! The game is available at retail, and also as a download from PlayStation Network. You can get the PS3 version for $39.99, which includes the digital PS Vita version at no additional cost, or you can purchase the standalone PS Vita version for $29.99.

We are so happy that players can finally experience the joy of Salim al Kupar’s carpet ride and Tennessee Kid’s Crack Shot as they follow the gang’s adventure, twisting and turning through space and time. We love how the demos have been received by the Sly Cooper fans, but we have also loved watching a new, younger audience pick up and enjoy the Sly Cooper experience. It’s been hard keeping things under wraps for so long, but I can’t wait for players to uncover the latest plot twists first hand! Find out more in the launch trailer at the top of this post.

We are also pleased to announce the simultaneous arrival of the Bentley’s Hackpack, a new Sly Cooper companion game available for download on PSN! Based on Bentley’s hacking minigames from Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the game gives players 60 totally new, controller twisting missions to take on, tons of nifty Sly Cooper loot to collect, and cameos from the whole gang, all wrapped up in Bentley’s signature arcade. We had so much fun making and playing the mini games in Thieves in Time that we just couldn’t stop and wanted to pass along the fun. The Bentley’s Hackpack is available today for either PS3 or PS Vita, for just $2.99. Purchasing either version of the game will allow you to download the game on the other platform at no additional cost. Check it out:

It’s been an absolute blast bringing Sly Cooper back and we’d like to thank PlayStation and Sucker Punch for giving us such an awesome opportunity!

Personally I’m not a fan of Sly, but I think it’s really great that you’re charging $40 for both the PS3 and Vita versions. More games should launch this way!

I can’t wait but sadly my copy won’t arrive until tomorrow. :(
Judging by the demo you guys have done a great job with the game so congratulations on that!

I also have a question, would I be missing or spoiling anything by getting Bentley’s Hack Pack and playing it today since my copy of the main game won’t arrive just yet?

Do we get Bentley’s hackpack as a pre-order bonus?

I have been a longtime fan of Sly, so I’m getting this game. However, I find it very unsettling, disheartening, sad – that SCEA does not do a proper job of marketing their products.

Sly is a great franchise and nobody knows that the latest game came out today. There has been just about no advertising for this title apart from gaming websites.

I’m going to support it and just from the demo, I can tell that Sanzaru did a great job on the title. Kudos.

Still, I can’t get rid of the feeling that this title will end up like PlayStation All-Stars, Starhawk, Resistance 3, and a boat load of other PS games and products that haven’t sold well due to a lapse in marketing common sense.

Anyway, enough of my rant, time to play Sly.

The day Sony start making those cross-buy games “1 purchase, 2 platinums”, a lot of people will buy the Vita, apparently.


17

+ vanwinkle on February 5th, 2013 at 8:24 am said:

This game looks awesome and I’m buying it today (along with Bentley’s Hackpack), but I’m so mad at Sony for not marketing it at all and holding review embargo until NOON DAY OF RELEASE. Then there’s the fact that they put Dead Space 3 up at midnight but they can’t even do the same for their OWN first-party title.

I’m assuming Glen won’t be answering questions, but if anybody from Sanzaru will be answering, I was wanting to ask why cel-shading was removed from the Vita version when that’s such a big characteristic of the franchise.

+ Sonicfan11589 on February 5th, 2013 at 8:28 am said:

Before the price drop i was going to just buy the VIta version, but i matter as well buy both versions for an extra $10. I saw the trophy list, doesn’t look very hard like the other sly games, I am currently trying to finish sly 3 so i can get myself ready for this game.

Also, LOL @ Bentley’s Arcade exterior looking like Flynn’s Arcade from Tron. <3

+ remanutd5 on February 5th, 2013 at 8:31 am said:

at 15 G-Force08 what are you talking about? Sony marketing of sly goes with the theme of the game, they are stealthily releasing it without no one noticing lol

Will you patch the 2 misspelled trophies in Sly 3?(Slytankhamen Approved and Wirlwind Of Awsome)?

I think sony should buy Sanzaru games and make them a psvita developers, i think they could do a very good job, let them create a new IP on the vita sony!!!

Waiting for my pre-order from Amazon to be delivered today. I’ve been playing the Sly Collection to get ready and think they would also be great on the Vita…I would totally pay for them again if I could enjoy it on the go.

Awesome game for awesome price? This is Game of the Year material right here. All I have to say is the loading times suck due to the fact there is no Game Data Utility

To everyone asking where the Vita version is, my guess is that you won’t be able to download it until the PS Store updates later on today.

How big will the download file for the PS3 version on the PSN store be?

I sadly can’t afford Thieves right now but I think I might pick up the Hackpack. Does it have any Thieves spoilers in it?

This game is going is incredible. The demo I played on the PS3 and the vita looks gorgeous I strongly recommend for everybody to go out and buy this game
I am going to GS to pick up my copy I’ll be back:-)

+ SolduNuts on February 5th, 2013 at 8:59 am said:

Wow. This looks like a full featured game for only 40 bucks on release day. Good job. I really enjoy the Cross Buy and Cross Play features for my Vita. Being able to pick up on the PS3 when I get home after playing on my Vita at school is the best feature ever invented. This game looks to be just as great as the past games, again good job guys. I also want to try out the Cross Controller feature, but I wish that the Vita could just be used as the controller, but still cool never the less.

@32 jhernandez360, the Vita version will go live when the store updates today so hang tight.

Sold.

I was originally going to wait a while before picking this up, but after playing the demo, I quickly changed my mind. I already have it ordered from Amazon, and I can’t wait to get that Vita version too!

Can’t wait to pick this up after class, Make me proud Sanzaru! =D. @Sony you should really advertise these games they deserve to be bought!

does this game have 1 or 2 platium?

if this have 2 i’ll get the ps3 version, but if it’s has only 1 then i think i’ll go for psv version to save 10$ for the future game

+ Ryumoau on February 5th, 2013 at 9:41 am said:

Why is there no PS Plus discount for this game? This is a first party game, so theres no excuse for that.


45

+ FearMonkey on February 5th, 2013 at 9:45 am said:

@44 – It’s already only $40. What more kind of discount do you expect?


46

+ johnnyp70 on February 5th, 2013 at 9:46 am said:

My question is: Why was Dead Space 3 available for pre-order, and download this morning, but a basically 1st (or 2nd) party game was not? I would love to have this waiting for me when I got home from work this afternoon, but I now have to wait for the store to update.

No, thank you Glen and everyone at Sanzaru Games (as well as Sucker Punch Games and Sony) in believing that our beloved thievious racoonus and gang deserve another shot on the medium (and small) screen. You guys have poured your sweat and passion (and lives) into this title, and I can tell it’s going to be a stellar one. Still upset there isn’t a collector’s edition (I’m looking at you Sony!) but I definitely will be enjoying my copies when they arrive tonite! It’s been a long time coming! Long live the Cooper Clan!!!

+ Ryumoau on February 5th, 2013 at 9:50 am said:

@45 i don’t know, maybe $29.99 to $34.99 after a plus discount. It looks like they are planning to make extra money with pointless day 1 dlc anyway.


49

+ FearMonkey on February 5th, 2013 at 9:51 am said:

@Christian Cardona – Yes, I think $39.99 is a great price. But I just spent $100 on the Ni no Kuni Wizard’s Edition and hence I don’t have $39.99. :p

+ johnnyp70 on February 5th, 2013 at 9:51 am said:

On the plus side, if you love Sly and all his glory, please note that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is now the same 39.99 price point on the PSN digital store for cross-buy.
