    Remember, we’re going to be in PSN Maintenance mode tomorrow. However, the PS Store will be updating later this Monday evening. Check in the Store later tonight, and you may already see Virtue’s Last Reward set to free for Plus members, but make SURE it’s showing up free.

    Otherwise, you can wait until the maintenance is all clear tomorrow, then download away.

PLEASE people take note. You need to play 999 before you play VLR. Trust me.

That being said, I’m pumped for that Fat Princess sale. I was hoping for a Hotline Miami discount, but oh well.

Hey Morgan, any chance we’ll get some teases for the July free games on the Blogcast this week?

And 60 cents for Hydrophobia: Prophecy? Might have to get that.

    I don’t think we’ll be moving forward with that format on the Blogcast. I may show up from time to time to discuss some other Plus or PSN related topics, but as for the monthly reveals; I think we’re going to stick with fully announcing on Mondays.

You guys should make weekly articles on the Top 20 most played games of the week on PS3 and PS Vita. Would be interesting to see which titles are the most popular on PSN.

Zero Escape is good and all but i really hope you guys start to think more about the Ps vita owners. The Europe had Metal gear hd collection (in the past), Rayman Origins this month and in July they’ll have: Ninja Gaiden and Unit 13.
So guys, PLEASE, bring us Unit 13 or MGS HD Collection. PLEASE ! We really need great games on Vita.
And i really hope you guys answer me this time.

Virtue Last Reward is the last reward for PS+ Vita this month. lol
And oh, we need more PS+ PSP discounts. Really, the PSP games are promoted better that way i think.

Everyone who hasn’t played Virtue’s Last Reward yet is in for a real treat. What a fantastic free game. And it looks like I’ll finally be getting Escape Plan and Fat Princess! Very cool. I wonder if a Fat Princess Vita annoucement is due…

Anyways, should I get the PS3 or the PSP Fat Princess?

**Morgan, Kristine, any SONY staff member**
Please read:

May we please have some insight as to the reason why the entire PS1 & PSP libraries that are currently available through PS3 store, are not currently available on the Vita store?

Many of us here ask weekly questions about a rather large number of titles, but never get any answers in regards to them. If we do get an answer, it’s something like “we do not have any information on that title at this time.” “Or, ask the developer” for said title…well we do, but shouldn’t Sony be doing their part in getting these games on the Vita? You his already want us bragging to our friends to buy one ala referral plan…

I for one would love to convince someone to buy a Vita. There are currently so many people nay saying the Vita & calling it a dead console or just a $250.00 controller for the PS4..

Something needs to be done to reVITAlize your handheld, and fast.

+ fede01_8 on June 24th, 2013 at 8:27 am said:

I really hope that we also get Battlefield 3 in July like Europeans. And in case that no one at SCEA knows why, here are the reasons :
*It could get people into Battlefield. Like you got me into Darksiders and Borderlands when they were added to the IGC. Because of that i bought Darksiders 2 and Borderlands 2
*Battlefield 4 is around the corner so almost nobody is going to buy BF3 when a new version is coming soon


21

+ helbertpina on June 24th, 2013 at 8:28 am said:

Also, I love it when you offer games on Plus that people wouldn’t normally buy! Keep it up, guys! :D


22

+ DARZERO on June 24th, 2013 at 8:28 am said:

Totally out of context here but…the PS4 must get TitanFall, as far I know, there’s no exclusivity rights to be on the other console, I hope Sony recognize the enormous potential of this franchise and do something to make it happen on ps4. Looks like the team as Respawn is too small to handle multiple ports, I don’t think It really matters as to when the game comes to PS4 but it must be announce soon. I’m not in favour of supporting the other console but TitanFall and Killer Instinct alone would make me buy one.

+ Squiggle55 on June 24th, 2013 at 8:29 am said:

I voted for Virtue’s Last Reward in the poll even though I have it because of how great a game it is, but the Fat Princess and Escape Plan sale are very much appreciated as well.

Hydrophobia: Prophecy for 60 cents ? that is pretty much FREE really. i got it for 2.99 its def worth it. ppl better get it for 60 cents… also pool nation only 5 bucks for ps members is very nice. il be getting it for 8 bucks. fat princess for 3 bucks ? it was worth 15 to me. also the Creat Studios Summer Survival Pack , thats a lot of games for that price. there all like 9.99 each alone. also the STORE UPDATE will be TONIGHT not tommorow, for thise that did not know. due to maintainence.

Anyone have any suggestions if i should get it for PSN or PSP (keeping in mind i don’t overly care if i am playing real people or bots … to me it seems funner as a portable game, but dont want to miss out on anything if the PSN version has more to offer). Is the online community for Fat Princes PSN still good?

+ OneMoreVillain on June 24th, 2013 at 8:49 am said:

Since February the quality of sales has really improved I find, we now get more widespread sales,some competitive pricing, bundles and flash sales. I am not always interested in the stuff offered but there is more then like one thing that has my attention unlike before when it was a deal or interesting content I only looked forward to once a month. My only complaint would have to be I don’t always have enough money to get everything I desire in time now lol.

+ FeistFan on June 24th, 2013 at 8:51 am said:

Hydrophobia: Prophecy will change the way you look at every other video game that uses water – unfortunately, it makes them all look painfully bad in comparison. What they do with water and how it moves and interacts with the environment is stunning for its realism – you won’t believe how bad water in other games has been until you’ve played it.

Unfortunately, it’s too short, and the plot isn’t fully developed. It’s a lot more than just a tech demo, but not quite as full an experience as I’d like. But for less than three quarters, there’s no risk here – check it out if you haven’t already!

Not much else for me this week, as I don’t have a Vita or PSP, and I’m not sure the other discounts are interesting – but it’s been a great month, so I can’t complain, and it’s good to see some love for the other devices. Hopefully when the PS4 hits, we’ll still see plenty of PS3 content in Plus for at least a couple more years.

Morgan, according to Paul Sullivan over on the PSN Maintenance post, the store is updating later today because of tomorrow’s maintenance. I’m assuming this includes the PS Plus update as well?
