On the Music Unlimited deal, is that for the Premium ($9.99/mo.) or Access version ($4.99)? Because the PSN price listed of $59.99 would be the normal price for one year of the Access version (PS3/Vita/PC access only; i.e., no smart phone, smart TV, iPod, etc. access). And I assume the PS Plus discounted price is for one year and it will extend my membership 12 months from the current expiration date of Jan. 2014. Thanks!

Hey Morgan! I was wondering will you guys be making God Eater’s free DLC compatible with the Vita???

+ klassymike on June 10th, 2013 at 11:09 am said:

Hoping the store updates early tomorrow due to the large file size of U3, and to the many people that will be downloading all of the content available. Please update early tomorrow!!

Kind of wished Uncharted 2 was part of a discount. sense the 3rd one is for plus. I beat the first one as it came with the PS3. Soon after I traded it in boom Trophies happened haha. Good week for Plus on account of E3. Kind of hoped you’d sneak in Saints Row 3 on this update but what’s another week or two. LBP Karting seems cool. Never been a fan of strategy war games except for the classic Risk board game of course. I’m going to give XCOM a try. Going to try to pull Uncharted 2 and the 1st one (1st for trophies) second to continue story line for the third one. Still think it’s a good update. Congrats to the team Morgan.

Vita Vita Vita

Tired of reading complaints from owners twice a week. You Vita people should be happy that your portable system will continue onto the PS4 instead of being ditched altogether from Sony.

+ ShoyzD on June 10th, 2013 at 11:22 am said:

^There were originally 3 PS3 games, 3 Vita games (Machinarium for both) announced. The Vita games being VLR, and Orc’s Reward ($50 retail?).

Then they took away Machinarium cross-buy, so 3 PS3 games, 2 Vita games.

Then they took away Orc’s Attack for God’s Eater Burst.

Now it’s 6 PS3 games, 2 Vita games. And of those 2, the $50 (retail?) title has been swapped for an old PSP game. So it’s essentially -1- Vita game this month, 1 PSP game.

It’s hard not to feel shafted. And I do. This went from a great PS+ month for Vita to a crappy one.


108

@ShoyzD – They didn’t take away Orc’s Attack, the game itself has been delayed.

@1 @102 I was expecting GTA IV Complete Edition was added to IGC. I didn’t join Plus to request a list of games, as I prefer waiting for a list of games to be added each month.


111

+ T3DV0L70L1N4 on June 10th, 2013 at 11:37 am said:

@110 — I heard about the mix up with GOW 1&2 pricing, but missed it. It would be nice if those games were added to the IGC for real.

That’s fine if you prefer waiting for a list of games rather than requesting them. But how else will Sony know what games PS+ members want unless people request them? That is why I keep a running list.


112

+ DonkeyKongKilla on June 10th, 2013 at 11:37 am said:

Nope I was right. If it was still coming to Plus I don’t know. Maybe one day haha

The game itself is delayed, so it won’t be in Plus, naturally. God Eater Burst has replaced it.”

Can you please discount dragon’s dogma dark arisen ? even if its $10 and it matches the disc price of $29.99 I will buy it. I prefer games digitally as I never sell my games anyways. I’m also OK with you adding as free game for PS PLUS next month. Please consider it, THANKS!!

@106 that is absolutely the dumbest thing i have ever heard… I should be happy that sony isnt “ditching the system.” Okso ive had a vita since the very beginning got the first edition bundle fo close to 500$. And the thought of what u said is ludicrous. To think they would abandon the most advanced handheld in the business are you serious. And yes we would like to see better vita games on plus sony is the one who broughtplus to vita as a sellng point so they could at least give decent games. I have vita and ps3 and overall im completely satisfied with plus i just think ur comment towards vita owners is completely absurd. We just would like to see as much love on the vita side of plus as well.
Anyone know if i can watch E3 on vita or will i have to use my ps3…

@Morgan I know you can’t just magically add the Uncharted 1 & 2 bundle to the sale, but I’ve been holding out on the bundle for so long ever since the EU got a sale on it. Any chance you can give me a clue if it’s going on sale in the next two months or be part of the IGC anytime soon?

I know this may be a concern for others as well, but how much GB space is for the Uncharted Single Player? Also, how much is it to go from “Free-2-Play” multiplayer to the full multiplayer? I’ve read good things about Uncharted 3 and I would like to know this information.

Also, thank you for making my last summer break before college a good one. I consider this as a graduation present from Sony. :D

It was an error that they caught very quickly, and some people grabbed them up before they fixed it. It maybe lasted for an hour or so before they caught it.

MS is trying to copy PS+ and is offering 2 free games. They started with Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2…because people want games that 6 years old. Highlight of MS Conference was during BF4 “Xbox Sucks” and the crowed laughs.
Regretting getting TR a few weeks ago now during the flash sale, but such is life. Compete with Xbox Ones price of $499 and all is forgiven.

@133 When I beta tested an Xbox dashboard, they sent out Halo Reach preview discs to test them. Then Bungie updates the game, making the discs unusable. Thus, they sent out Game on Demand codes for the preview disc owners.

@DonkeyKongKilla-Change the hard drive now rather than later. The switch out takes about 15 minutes, but re-dowloading is a pain. I would suggest starting the process while there is less than 160GB on your plate.

+ derb on June 10th, 2013 at 12:29 pm said:

Well I’m sure Sony will match the price tag of the PS4 at $499 as well. Unless they have a better bundle cooked up. The free MS games is nice but I’m sure they’ll release more free games I already payed for down the road. My luck. lol As for what I saw at the conference… Yaaaaaawwwwwnnnnn.

On topic, I look forward to getting XCOM: Enemy Unknown & Machinarium tomorrow. Paid for Little Big Planet Karting.

Off topic, @117

I own a PS Vita. I own 0 free games from PS+ because my Vita is still sealed in its box. Yes you should be happy Vita lives on. Sony only cares what they lose & I’d wager they have lost quite a chunk of change on it. Me personally, I am happy Vita will carry onto the PS4. The PS3 owners are not so lucky.

I just subscribed to PS Plus yesterday. I couldn’t resist especially after buying a Vita a week prior. The IGC really does come in handy when you need to buy game for two platforms now. With four free more games to claim tomorrow, this was the best $50 I ever spent and it’s only been two days with the subscription.


144

+ AizawaYuuichi on June 10th, 2013 at 12:41 pm said:

I’ll go ahead and add both XCOM and LBPK to my download list, but I don’t really have any interest in playing either of them. Already bought Machinarium back when it came out, and platted UC3 last year. The sales are nice, but I either own them or don’t want them… so in reality, absolutely nothing for me this week. :(

Just waiting for Saint’s Row: The Third and Virtue’s Last Reward. And for the PS4 to undercut the Xbone’s price, just like 360 did to PS3.

In the future, I’d appreciate it if you guys could use rounder numbers. I’m six cents from being able to buy Tomb Raider, but since I have no credit card, I’d be forced to buy two $20 PSN card, which I cannot do.

Something to keep in mind when other sales crop up. Not everyone has a credit card to cover that extra 24 cents, and because of that there’s at least one lost sale.

Ausi EB Games had a $799.. or was it $899 tag on the PS4 pre-order a month or so ago. Obviously a glitch, but made ja think.

I hope PS4 goes for $249.99

Sony loses mega bucks but in the long run there are triple the amount of PS4′s in everyone’s homes than the ONE. lol
