If Sony added trophies to PSP titles, I’d be much more interested and Im sure many others would be as well – and that is a great way to encourage the buying of the PSP black library…

@47 – Totally agree with you regarding the PSP/Vita vote. I’m not at all against getting PSP games in the IGC. After all, there are a limited amount of Vita games currently, and I doubt they’re going to start placing games like P4G in the Collection any time soon. But PSP had some absolutely fantastic games, particularly in the RPG genre. I didn’t play hardly any of them because I didn’t get into the genre until recently, but I’d love to get access to some of them for free (i.e., Jeanne d’Arc, Persona 3 Portable).

Also looking forward to playing Knytt Underground on my Vita…once I’m through the dozen other Vita/PSP games I have yet to play. Gotta love PS+! Also, hope that Persona 3 FES is on sale tomorrow as was mentioned on the PS Blogcast last week. Will definitely pick it up at the $5 price range.

+ Kchow23 on May 13th, 2013 at 11:24 am said:

PSP games definitely add value to the PS Vita IGC line up specially if we can get a great PSP game instead of an average/decent game like Germinator, but so far we have only been getting PSP fighting games which is a bit disappointing considering that there is so many great and varied PSP games.

I bought Knytt when it was on sale a while back. Great game, still it cracks me up when they offer free games that have previously been on sale or even been included in Plus a while ago. At any rate, there is nothing for me in the sales either, so it is a money-saving week for me. No complaints here.
@Morgan, one question – When they add Pinball Arcade to Plus later this month, are they planning a sale of any of the DLC? I don’t have any of the extra tables yet and have been hoping for a sale!

God, what a lame plus update. Though i like that you are giving 20% discounts on new games for once. Hopefully it will be done more often on games i actually wanna buy.

Also, no psp games don’t add value to the IGC, especially crappy fighting games. We want Vita games.

Actually, there are console versions of the game as well. But the PS Vita version is the one getting the Plus treatment (all of the PS3 BlazBlue games are currently disc only).

Regarding the survey question about PSP games in the IGC:

I think PSP games add great value to PS+, but it certainly depends on the game. I have no interest in the fighting games that have been free lately. But the PSP God of War games would be excellent additions.

Triple-A PSP games are always better than lackluster Vita games. There have been way too many Vita games added to the IGC that aren’t even worth my time. In those situations, PSP has more of a selection to choose from. There’s a better chance of getting a good game.

If the Vita had a library of more awesome games, then the PSP library wouldn’t be as valuable as it is today.

@59 and @62

What the hell is wrong with fighting games again? If there’s a reason I should stop playing BlazBlue CSE (which I won’t be doing until I at least finish the story), please, enlighten me.

Plus, BlazBlue CSE is, IMO, the best fighting game there is, let alone on the Vita. It’s by Arc System Works, so how could it not?

Not to mention (as Ryumoau should know by now, from all the screens (WITH WATERMARKS!!!) I’ve sent) the fact that 1. The story is actually good, and there are some silly moments, and 2. There are A LOT (literally HUNDREDS) of Gallery items to unlock.

We need more discounts. I mean free games are fine, but my year members ship is going on to 2 or 3 months now and I’ve yet to use a single discount purchase…..

I don’t understand why Sony’s own games are not all listed at discounts for PS Plus. Killzone HD etc…. I’d be buying all these up, but instead I just keep “holding out” for discounts that will come eventually….. 15 dollar games for 10 dollars would be perfect.


71

+ ArchAngelMai on May 13th, 2013 at 11:48 am said:

@Ryomoau
Only reason its getting 20% is because its THQ and they went under recently and were purchased by another company. So I don’t think its likely it will happen often.
And seriously, their aren’t that many games on Vita, and surely very few good ones. I would rather get great PSP games than crappy Vita games just for the sake of giving us a Vita game over a PSP one :(

The new poll about PSP games is good opportunity to see what people are thinking about many PSP titles that are being added to IGC US for VITA, I agree there are definitely a lots of titles in PSP library but hell no I would like to be added mediocre and passable titles to IGC for Vita. I’d like to see more exclusives and from different genre not just Fighting games. About PS3 IGC , please remove/change this so-called “ever Green Titles”.

Did you miss all of the discounts last month?! Sony had deep discounts on many of their own franchises, including God of War, Ratchet and Clank, and Twisted Metal, not to mention PS All-Stars, Metal Gear Solid, Borderlands 1 & 2, all of the Resident Evil games, and Grand Theft Auto. Don’t know what you’re waiting for to pull the trigger on any of these gems.


77

+ CZOOM01 on May 13th, 2013 at 12:06 pm said:

Yeah I have to agree. No more fighting games on Vita or PS3. We have had enough of them. Still give PSP games, just no more fighting games after BlazBlu please.

Also for PSN games, instead you guys can throw in a full PS2 game. As they are around same prices usually, but there is usually more value in a PS2 game. PS3 retail games over everything though. Sleeping Dogs was a nice treat.

Just a suggestion. Maybe give it a try, see how well that does.

PSP games? How ’bout PS4 games? I feel as though moving forward into the next console, the IGC will be empty on PS4 for a good while….but it’s when the PS3 will finally get the games we always wanted.

Can we get past the PSP and talk about the future of PS4?

+ MrSignal on May 13th, 2013 at 12:12 pm said:

Nothing really for me this week, as I already got Knytt.

Gotta say that it’s a great game to just explore.
I’ve spent hours in that game only exploring, trying to find the way to get some of the side quests done.
Only real problem is that there seems to be no way to disable the touch controls for the third chapter.
This is a little bit of a burden seeing how you go about. It’s a bit too easy to switch if you got teh stuupid thumbs.
Enough spoilers already.

I’m all good with PSP games, as long as there is some variety.
Could you guys add some XSeed games, like Lunar or some of the Y’s series?
With that new Y’s game out on the Vita sometime this year, they might be willing to work up a promo.

I can sorta see why some might be weary of fighting games, but I’m sure it’s just getting the genres fair cut of the Plus pie. Could use more cycling on the platform/adventure genres.

I played through “The Cave” this past weekend and finished up my physical copy of Infamous (I know it’s an old game) so I could start Infamous 2 thanks to PS+. Now we’re getting another cross-buy title. So awesome. :D

I think because of PS+ I’ve become more of a Playstation gamer. I use to always fly the Xbox flag proudly, but now I can’t help but sing the praises of my PS3 and PS+… Hats off to Sony on this one, they seemed to really turn the end of this generation of consoles to their favor. At least for me personally. I get WAY more value for my dollars nowadays gaming on Playstation.

Knytt Underground looks like a fun game. Just a critique though, the character sprite doesn’t look so great and his (her? I think it’s a he) animations aren’t great. The rest of the game looks phenomenal though. Backgrounds and levels are gorgeous, particle effects look great. Makes up for the meh character sprites. I’m excited to try it out though.

It’s much better on a TV. You should try it out. I don’t know how anyone can play that game on a Vita… the characters are way too damn small on Vita’s little screen. I tried to play it on a Vita once, that’s how I know. Great game though. On the TV. It just takes a little while to open up and really get interesting. But if you’re patient and you like exploring, it can be a really satisfying game.

@ Ryumoau

Would you shut up already? Nobody cares that the games offered here aren’t exactly to your liking. Did you know that Plus isn’t just for you?

I’d like to see COD: Black Ops Declassified go on sale. Sony CAN’T be selling many copies. It got atrocious reviews for bugginess and blandness. Call me a masochist, but I want to try it myself.

However, I’m not willing to pay $49.99 for ANY Vita game, and especially a digital title that cannot be resold. That price is more expensive than any other Vita game, by approximately $10-15. I think Sony has a decent price point for most other digital downloads at $35. That is the highest price I’m willing to pay for a AAA Vita title. I’d pay $39.99 in the store for a physical copy, but certainly some kind of discount is warranted for digital delivery. $35 seems reasonable. $49.99 is just plain crazy and greedy.

At the very least, I’d like to see it go on sale for a reasonable discounted price, if not made Free for PS Plus.
