@ 143, ya because the terms of agreement changed, I didn’t buy it. Maybe retail will be a different story.

Also

Consoles don’t last forever, when my PS3 inevitably dies am I supposed
to buy one again just because PS3 games aren’t compatible with the
PS4? as far as Im concerned there is no justifiable reason for a lack
of BC

The Show is not Cross Buy, that would have ruled, but if you look around at the usual places for retail games, you can pretty easily find a bundle deal for both, I want to say $80 for both, but I may be off.

Even though the store is late, I don’t see how anyone can down vote this update. The content is just amazing.

And about the lateness: Sony, you got to get a set time. If you really want to push digital on PS4, having these updates all over the place isn’t going to cut it.

I’m really starting to hate the way Konami handles digital content… they always release the retail version first and then the digital version later, probably in hopes of getting people who want it digitally to buy it both ways

This really sucks. A lot. I have been buying all my games digitally for the last 4 or 5 and NO WORD WHAT SO EVER that Tomb Raider was going to be digital so I went and bought a physical copy. 10 hours later, a digital copy of Tomb Raider.

I am never one to complain but a little heads up would have been nice.

Another price mistake spotted. You cleaned up two others but you still have MLB The Show 13 for Vita listed as $39.99 which was true in the store for a while. But now the store has updated to $35.99.

Make sure you refund anyone who bought it “early”.

+ duke301 on March 5th, 2013 at 9:18 pm said:

@151, you’re absolutely right. As far as you and I, or in other words the consumers, are concerned, there is no justifiable reason for no BC. However, Sony can justify it fine. Greed. Even though they haven’t said so, they probably expect us to re-buy all of our content so that we can play it out of their precious cloud or whatever the heck it is. All I know is that the PS3 and the Vita are my last consoles. I have enough games saved up there to last me until doomsday, so I say no to the PS4, and I encourage others to do the same.


173

+ MaKTaiL on March 5th, 2013 at 9:23 pm said:

@164, sorry, the correct writting is DRM and it stands for “Digital Rights Management”. Games sometimes use DRM technologies to limit the number of systems th game can be installed on by requiring authentication with an online server. In this case, you have always to be online to play Tomb Raider (even if you will only play the campaign). Also, if you have more than 1 PS3 or account, you won’t be able to play the game on the other for a period of 24 hours. Also you can’t play the game on another account, just on the one you bought.


174

+ Souled_out on March 5th, 2013 at 9:25 pm said:

I totally agree with 169. I too bought the blu-ray version of Tomb Raider because there was no mention of it being a day 1 digital release. I listen to the blogcast to be informed of these things and on top of that when “The Drop” post was made Tomb Raider was not listed as digital and Ray apparently never responds to posts. Playstation why do you make it so hard for your fans to give you money?

Tomb Raider has a DRM. Too bad, I’m too excited to buy it today so, that I can take advantage of the $10 moneyback. But, no. I will not buy it. What if I want to play offline. Bad bad bad decision. I’m so sad today.

I have a complaint…why does the digital ver of tomb raider get all the dlc when other like the retail copy get only one. In the other store they have all the packs for sale this morning so why psn doesn’t do the same? I feel we are getting the short end of the stick.

@178 LilRican

I am assuming that is why they did not ever once answer our questions as to if TR would be a Digital Release on PSN, they are giving away the exclusive skins that Gamestop, Best Buy, and WalMart all got.

I would have liked to bought TR digitally for the $10 it would have given me, but I just bought the CE from a retailer instead.

Why was it not stated in ANY post at all that the vita discounts for the first week would be going away this week? I was going to get vita stardust, but with the discount gone before I was able to purchase it today, I will just have to wait.
At least, PLEASE make it more clear/clarify when a post neglects a very important detail like this…

Any news on whats going on with the free titles?

Wild Arms (PS one Classic)
Patapon (PSP)
Piyotama (PSP)
Patchwork Heroes (PSP)

I cant download any of these. There is now download button available. Don’t have wifi at the moment waiting for verizon to replace the router so only the ps3 is connected and my PC and the online store doesnt have any available options either.

March 4th, posted by Don Mesa

“More PS Vita Anniversary Deals This Week, Including New Free Games”

in the first paragraph:

“There is still one more day to pick up the first batch of sales titles, so don’t miss your chance to grab award-winning games like Escape Plan, Sound Shapes, and PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale at a big discount.”

and that’s just from the 4th, I’m too lazy too look, but I’m near positive it was also mentioned on the initial post that mentioned the Anni Sale from last weekend

Main reason I don’t buy retail games on their release dates on the PSN is because of the Playstation Store’s erratic updates. One week it’ll be up at noon, and the next, it won’t be up until 9pm. And if I’m gonna pay $60 for a brand new game, I’m playing it ASAP. I imagine it sucks for people who pay $60, have the whole day free, and then the store doesn’t update till 6 or 7 or 8, and then you have to wait for it to download…and then to install. Basically, if you’re buying a brand new game on its release date, you’re basically acknowledging that you won’t enjoy it till the following day. And that sucks. For instance, I’ve been playing Tomb Raider since noon. And it is glorious. I hope everyone enjoys it!

Well, not much for sales for me (no Vita), but WOW, that’s a big drop, particularly for Digital “Full Games” releases. I’ll also be taking advantage of a couple demos (Knytt and Runner2).

Also: YESH! Those Vita freebies are available via PSP’s Store! Time to get some Patapon awn!

one game on that Vita list iam gunning for is Blazblue i have the ps3 version and would love to play it on the go but man iam broke >.<

+ Kyarok on March 6th, 2013 at 12:18 am said:

Fantastic update! Ill be buying Blazblue for sure. Its such a great yet underrated series. On a completely topic does sony have any plans to implement a system where I can back up my ps vita saves without actually backing up the whole system itself? Perhaps you guys could allow ps plus suscribers to upload their vita saves to the cloud same as the ps3. Not only would it be a nice ps plus benefit but also a very welcome addition to the already great list of services you provide. Just an idea.

+ The_Dukenator on March 6th, 2013 at 12:26 am said:

@199 They thought of that when they bought Plus to Vita.
From Vita Plus FAQ:
Q: Is the 1GB Cloud Storage for PS Vita games shared with the 1GB for my PS3 Games?
A: The 1GB Cloud Storage for PS Vita is exclusive to the PS Vita and not shared with the PS3. So upload away with confidence that it won’t affect save space for your PS3 games.
