Please fix the Playstation vita apps:

Email App – Mark messages as Read/Unread

Web Browser – Portrait viewing mode. At least have some great HTML5 support if flash isnt going to ever work.

Keyboard – Portrait view qwerty keyboard

+ trum3n1 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:40 am said:

How about BF3 for PS+ like EU?


11

+ carlpain on July 1st, 2013 at 6:41 am said:

Week 2: Simpsons, Alice, Star Wars and (maybe) Lego games and Hitman Trilogy.


12

+ Soleiko on July 1st, 2013 at 6:41 am said:

No good sales for me, but I’m picky.

Why is it on every blog some troll complains about ps+? Wait for the + update to complain, sheesh.


13

+ bldudas on July 1st, 2013 at 6:41 am said:

There’s some good deals.

If you like Batman, and do not have Batman Arkham Asylum, I say get it during this sale. It’s a great game!


14

+ ossiecastro5 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:41 am said:

Wow, such good sales. I would take advantage of this. But I’m already in the middle of saving up for a second PS3. :D


15

+ Patsrule0316 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:43 am said:

All I have is a vita, but I’ll be all over that Mortal Kombat for $5 with PS+!!! Good deal. Even if it eventually comes as a free game, I won’t be upset about paying 5 dollars to own it permanently.


16

+ Occhi07 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:44 am said:

Tron is on the vita? I think that’s a mistake…


17

+ mikeasauskie on July 1st, 2013 at 6:44 am said:

What do you guys recomend? Mortal Kombat Vita or PS3 Version? Not reallt sure -_-


18

+ Zezzler on July 1st, 2013 at 6:45 am said:

Looks like I’ll be picking up Mortal Kombat for my Vita and the Ratchet & Clank Collection tomorrow.
What great deals!


19

+ BoltZilla on July 1st, 2013 at 6:45 am said:

Mortal Kombat Vita this week and Alice next week for me. Does purchasing Alice 2 still get you access to the original game too?


20

+ carlpain on July 1st, 2013 at 6:45 am said:

I was going to buy The Simpsons the other day for 10 bucks. Glad I didn’t do it. Thank you. SOTC is another expensive game (physical copy). I got Batman: AC as a gift and I never played AA, so this is perfect.


21

+ wolfking2010 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:45 am said:

Does anyone know if the glitch in LOTR: War in the North is fixed? I used to have it on disc but I traded it in bc of the glitch. I forget where it occurred in the game. Does Ico come with Shadow of the Colossus? I hope MK is cross play/cross buy with the Vita


22

+ carlpain on July 1st, 2013 at 6:46 am said:

21: That is another collection. It is the game by itself. Europe got both games together last month.


23

+ detictiveconan on July 1st, 2013 at 6:47 am said:

Nothing for me. I all ready own anything there I’d want to buy.


24

+ MrPatrick16 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:49 am said:

I’ll take Mortal Kombat and Silent Hill for the Vita…everything else to me personally is average


25

+ gcsoxfan08 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:50 am said:

Good thing I held off on picking up Scott Pilgrim and Alice for full price! I think I might have to pick up the Prince of Persia titles too since I’ve never played any of them. This sale looks like there’s something for everyone.


26

+ geassuser87 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:51 am said:

Im saving up for…..

8/20 saints rows, XCOM declassified
8/27 FF14
9/3 diablo 3
9/17 GTA5

The last best sale that you guys gave was for Tomb Raider. Im not too bored to be taking Spiderman, although Ive heard nice stuffs of the game. 20 is still quite a lot for a movie based however.

Maybe Hitman HD and Shadow Of Collossus. Have a fun summer guys!


27

+ Ragna0088 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:51 am said:

1.stop whining about EUs ps+ this is’t the right place 2.thats EU not NA focus on what we get instead of what THEY get 3.ps+ for the vita is pretty sad so be happy you got a great IGC last month while vita users got one VITA game


28

+ Mando44646 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:52 am said:

I might pick up Alice and PoP. However why is there so little Vita support here?

Also, why are the games so old? With the exception of one or two, these are all pretty old – and this “sale” doesnt compare at all to Steam’s Summer Sale. If PSN and Live expect to stress digital more and compete with services like Steam, we have to have an incentive to buy digital over physical.

And those movies are a ripoff too


29

+ Ragna0088 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:54 am said:

btw if you wanna be personal about what everyone gets for IGC go buy the game yourself and stop being cheap eother be happy woth plus or don’t waste your money on it.remember that everybody doesn’t want BF3

+ Jisatsu_Kiddo on July 1st, 2013 at 6:54 am said:

@1
stupid comment, no surprise…

@10
how about be happy with getting anything and learn about license issues.


31

+ Jimusmc5 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:57 am said:

i see children are up early today.


32

+ Loggernaut on July 1st, 2013 at 6:57 am said:

Those are some crazy deals! Picking up R&C collection tomorrow for sure


33

+ PopTopHero on July 1st, 2013 at 6:57 am said:

Shadow of the Colossus and Ratchet Collection shall be mine. :)

Now let’s see the list of free games… please.


34

+ TJF588 on July 1st, 2013 at 6:57 am said:

Might have to trade in my disc copy of Alice: Madness Returns for that price! Might would do the same of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, but I handed that off to my brother, and I don’t see myself getting wrapped up in it enough. Not scalping off my ICO/Shadow disc, though.

For both Alice and Scott Pilgrim, I’d’ve loved to’ve seen the add-ons on sale, too. Add-ons need to go on sale more often, really. Helps one feel better about having bought in to the main game at a higher price, and a discount at all might entice sales and use (SPVTW specifically has online play behind that add-on paywall).

And unless something’s changed, THERE IS NO REASON TO BUY SINGLE-DOWNLOAD VIDEO CONTENT. Free? Sure, no loss. Rent? Fine, you expect to lose it. But there’s no “buying” digital content that you can’t redownload without begging customer service, especially since there’s no way to verify that content as correctly downloaded (this point applying to games and apps as well, a severe oversight for such large file sizes).


35

+ jasonstreet on July 1st, 2013 at 6:57 am said:

I am wondering if the digital download your offering of alice the madness returns comes with the original game like the disc copy does or if its only the newer game?


36

+ honkayjeezus on July 1st, 2013 at 6:58 am said:

Kiddo, chill out. It is just the Internet.

Hopefully the blog gets an update as to what the US PS Plus game is for tomorrow?


37

+ ElCactus on July 1st, 2013 at 6:59 am said:

Question: I just signed up for PS+ last month, are the free games (for PS+ users) a monthly thing? or is it just once a year?


38

+ aragost on July 1st, 2013 at 7:03 am said:

This is a great sale! Many titles on there that I can get for cheap that me and my son can play together, like the Lego games. Thank you Sony!!


39

+ ItaChu on July 1st, 2013 at 7:05 am said:

òmg so many discounts ….your killing me sony! remember we need to save for the PS4 lol


40

+ ItaChu on July 1st, 2013 at 7:06 am said:

oh yeah and lets hurry up that ps+ post LOL lets go XD


41

+ CrusaderForever on July 1st, 2013 at 7:06 am said:

OMG!!!!! Those are some amazing prices! There are 10 games I must buy! Sony can do no wrong! Also, this isn’t even the PS+ July news! My mind might explode at some point this week! Thank you very much! Here’s a couple more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


42

+ Zionine on July 1st, 2013 at 7:06 am said:

I think it’s very confusing and just a tiny bit false advertising to say PSP games are “PS Vita”. It’s not too difficult to put PSP (Compatible with Vita) instead, right? I believe there’s a couple games up there that have this issue right now.. (cause I sadly know all the Vita game titles..)

Examples: Lord of the Rigns: Aragorn’s quest– only LOTR game on Vita is LEGO I believe…
and someone mentioned Tron.. No Tron game on Vita.


43

+ Binarynova on July 1st, 2013 at 7:06 am said:

Glad to see I dodged a bullet. Bought Kingdoms of Amalur yesterday, happy to see it’s not on the list. :p


44

+ ShariusTC on July 1st, 2013 at 7:07 am said:

i’ll get ratchet and clank collection for sure but still wonder should i take hitman collection too? PS4 will come in the end of the year and my backlog is overflow with game that i don’t ever have a time to finish

damn, that will be the hard decision


45

+ DropDeadKen on July 1st, 2013 at 7:07 am said:

@ElCactus new games are announced for PS Plus every month and are released weekly on Tuesday. Keep checking this blog for updates.


46

+ helbertpina on July 1st, 2013 at 7:09 am said:

Nice, aggressive discounts! Funny how cheap MK9 is dropping to just before it’s released on Steam! (Better for us gamers!)


47

+ Zionine on July 1st, 2013 at 7:09 am said:

Well, now I feel like an idiot.. I think it got updated as I typing my post.. or its a Monday and my reading skills are at a weekly low..
LOTR: Aragorn’s quest says “PS Vita/PSP” Haha..


48

+ Ghostwize on July 1st, 2013 at 7:11 am said:

Oh my! Look at some of those deals! That’s what ps+ is all about! I just bought The Last of Us but I must get some of those games at that price. Lego Batman 2 and Lego Pirates at $5 a pop?! My son is gonna poo himself! LOTR War in the North $5, count me in! Mortal Kombat $5, GTFO! It’s mine. SOTC. GIMME for $5! Well done!


49

+ TheMART on July 1st, 2013 at 7:11 am said:

Why so little PSVita love in USA now too?

EU PSN/PS+ already did a bad job… Overall its PS3 only. Why…

Is PSVita left to die out there, and no sales for it either? Nice.


50

+ TJF588 on July 1st, 2013 at 7:12 am said:

Further: I’d like to get in on Arkham Asylum, but I remember the GOTY version’s save files being incompatible with it? Or something regarding differences between the download version and GOTY disc.

Seeing sale prices on the “Ultimate Editions” too would sit better with me. Alice and Mortal Kombat, for me. I know add-ons are for increasing revenue, but for someone who often waits for deals, sitting on those add-ons just bums me out.
