During the final siege on the human fortress, his former mentor makes a sudden comeback, seeking retribution for his apprentice’s betrayal and eager to reclaim his rightful place as alpha mad scientist. Only one question remains: who shall win? Slow zombies, or fast zombies? Find out as undead armies clash in both the immersive single player campaign and the competitive multiplayer mode!

Thanks for the quick reply Morgan, keep up the good work.

Great update this week because of that huge sale. These kinds of sales is what makes Plus awesome, not just the free games, just saying :P

    I’m glad at least one game is on sale that you like. I think DmC might have just been off the table for the discount, but if you feel strongly about it, definitely send your feedback to Capcom and let them know you’d love to see a sale on it in the PS Store.

Nope, no classic Dante costumes in PSABR. Just shirtless Dante & tank top Dante.

Any chance that you guys could make Ratchet and Clank Size Matters playable on Vita? Great sale by the way. I’ll be picking up Quest For Booty tomorrow with the 10$ gift card. Thanks Sony!

Hey Morgan,

Looks like a great update. I will be getting LBP vita for sure now, i been waiting on a cheaper price on it.

Question though, now that Metal Gear Solid is on sale, does this mean it will finally be Vita direct download capable? I know you can use a ps3 to import it to the vita, but my PS3 died a couple months back and saving funds on a new one. I been waiting on this one for quite some time. Would you happen to know if tomorrow I can finally direct download it to my vita?

    I have not heard of anything changing with regards to MGS titles compatibility with PS Vita. Check the PS Store update tomorrow as we always list when a PSP title becomes downloadable on PS Vita if it wasn’t before, but again, I don’t think I’ve seen this coming in for this week.

+ JPG2105 on April 29th, 2013 at 10:42 am said:

Is Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault still cross buy despite the vita version delay? If so will I get a download code when the vita version is released?

Alot of games for me to download this week…Sly 2 and 3 (Thanks for the sale on those!), Zombie Tycoon 2 (Free!), and Poker Night 2! =)

Those four games along with next months content should keep me plenty busy until The Last of Us releases!

Keep up the great work Morgan and team! You guys and gals never disappoint! (Well me anyways)

Thanks! =)

Now that I got that out of my system, EXCELLENT SALE!!!! Unfortunately I own pretty much all of the games in this sale that I would care to buy lol such a shame! I might pick up LBP Vita though….also, someone earlier said that these sales are a big reason that Plus is so great and he’s right. The free games are good and all but deep discounts like these are the big reason that Plus is worth every dime ;)

Surprised DMC is on sale and not DmC since the Reboot Dante was in PSABR. Great deals either way.

Morgan,

Glad to see we are finally getting a PSASBR legacy sale, like EU got at the game’s launch. Too bad many titles aren’t represented. I’d have loved a Fat Princess sale.


128

+ Phillyblunz on April 29th, 2013 at 11:07 am said:

Oh has Santa Monica Studios dropped all online support for PSASBR yet?

Its been 6 months, thats about how long the last game I bought with their name on it was supported, now they pretend there is no problems and that game never existed.

Beware buying games with their logo on them, they do not give a crap once the sales slow down a bit.

Its a situation where games dont sell well because they have bugs, then the company stops fixing bugs because people dont buy the game.

They create this reality, we are the ones to suffer for it.

They need to make games that work properly before release!! How hard is that?

Wow, that’s a sale and no mistake! $20 for All-Stars, you bet! I can see me spending $100 total here, easily. I was holding off for this week, hoping that you guys would go nuts, and while I am a wee bit disappointed that Ascension still isn’t available for digital download, and a discount on DMC would have been the icing on the cake, this is pretty much what I was hoping for.

And well done yet again, Morgan, for staying positive in the face of some truly juvenile and vitriolic comments; your upbeat nature and natural enthusiasm are a model for social media coordinators everywhere.

Thank you for updating the Sony Entertainment Network to allow auto download to PS3. I noticed one glitch/annoyance. If while the PS3 is already on and I purchase a game from the web store, it will not auto download until I turn it off and on again. It seems it only triggers an auto download only when the PS3 is turned off. Please change that to always check and trigger auto download. Yes, I am lazy. I like buying games from the web store instead of the built in store.

Also, please create two step verification for the online store. I want to feel secure.

Finally, please allow users with PayPal to auto pull funds to cover balances. If I do not have enough funds, I have to first add the funds and then make the purchase. Instead, I would like to be able to do the purchase and have the system pull the amount needed from PayPal.

Morgan why is it that Crash and Spyro and Metal Gear are not compatible i would like an answer cause far as I remember you guys were suppose to keep on adding all the PS ONE classics and PSP titles on a monthly basis on the ps vita and now you guys put on one every month is this a thing with you Acticvison and Konami because if you can get a sale on the MGS titles I don’t see why you guys can’t add them on the vita ?

Why isn’t God of War III included in that discount? Seems a bit odd to me — not like it’s a new title or anything.


147

+ GStylez1980 on April 29th, 2013 at 11:33 am said:

This is EXACTLY what I was hoping for when I heard about the Legacy Sale. I will be picking up Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (Vita), Peace Walker HD for PS3 (have it for PSP, but want the trophies), Sly 4 for Vita, GoW Collection (played it, but don’t have all the trophies), GoW Origins Collection (played it, but don’t have all the trophies), and Infamous: FoB (never played it).

Question for everyone: I’ve never played MGS1 and see that it’s gonna be $5 tomorrow. How well does it hold up today? Worth buying and playing at this point? I played MGS2 HD and liked it, but not as much as MGS3 due to the improved graphics and gunplay. Will I struggle to enjoy MGS1 (although I hear it has the best boss battles of the entire series)? Just looking for some opinions…thanks everyone!


148

+ GStylez1980 on April 29th, 2013 at 11:35 am said:

@greghove79 – God of War III, like Ascension, was never released digitally. Therefore, they can’t discount it in the PS Store.
