Morgan Haro's Avatar + Posted by Morgan Haro on Jul 08, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

PlayStation Plus members also received a deeper discount on our new Summer Blast sale, which offers up some compelling discounts — up to 80% off–on some of the best in gaming on the PlayStation Store.

For this week, we’re happy to unveil that Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD is free for PlayStation Plus members. We’ve also got the final week of the Summer Blast 2013 sale, so without further ado, let’s get into this week’s offerings.

July 8th PlayStation Plus Update

Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD (PS3)

PSN Price: $9.99, Free for PS Plus members

Oddworld Munch's Oddysee HD
It’s up to you to help guide Munch in efforts to rescue fellow test creatures. These critters will be forever loyal to Munch and in turn enable his escape. Once free, Munch teams up with Abe and together they are guided by the wisdom of the Almighty Raisin. They are informed as to how to accomplish their goals, but in order to do so, they must work together. For Munch, his dream is to bring back his species from the brink of extinction. For Abe, it is to rescue his Mudokon buddies.

I’m happy to see Oddworld. I tried out the demo a while ago, and I’ve been wanting to pick it up. Now I’m glad I didn’t. I’m also going to jump on X-Men in the Summer Blast sale as I’ve been waiting for that to go on sale for a long time now. One question – can we look forward to a week three of the sale, or does it end after two? Thanks a lot, guys!

I want to know why was Microsoft able to get some great AAA titles for their summer sale which is a true blast but Sony wasn’t I’m a Sony fanboy to the end but this sale was a let down all the way.

Who in the world wants Fast and Furious Men in Black Tron, Star Trek you guys read review don’t you and then we have 3 other games on the list 1 we as plus members already have and 2 that have been on sale before.

Let’s see how many of these crap games make the top 20 list next month.

THIS SALE SUCKS AND I WANT YOU GUYS TO KNOW IT LOOK AT MICROSOFTS SALE FOR SOME IDEAS OF WHAT TO DO NEXT YEAR GEEZ

The survey style should be changed up let us rate how much we like or dislike each piece of content. I’m sure the current survey doesn’t allow us to fully express our option on each offering. Suppose I like 2 things this week well I can only pick one of them or suppose I like one item but hate another I can’t express that to you guys.

It’s not that hard to actually create the survey on the web and it would provide more relevant data to improve plus overfall

Hey, just wanted to give Sony some suggestions for PSP games that would be nice for Vita that you could offer Plus members at some point when you need help thinking of stuff to pad out the offerings.

The PSP versions of the Neo*Geo games.

The Untold Legnds games for PSP which were great unlike the PS3 Untold Legends

Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins

Ridge Racer since there hasn’t been any good racers on Vita yet.
Or put GT PSP on the Vita store and add that permanently to the Vita IGC. I put it on my Vita through my PS3 and it looks amazing. Still smokes any other portable racer to date and has like every GT track to that point.

Savage Moon The Hera Campaign

A Monster Hunter since Capcom refuses to give the HD version to the West

Field Commander

Dragon’s Lair PSP

Spending 20 bucks during the week. I’ll see if I can push Hitman: Trilogy to my list. I spent 50 bucks like week between PS3 and 360.

Last* (We need an “edit” option).


59

+ Darth-Krayt on July 8th, 2013 at 1:45 pm said:

And please for the love of the gaming gods, get word to Konami to port The Simpsons Arcade and XMen Arcade to Vita. They are perfect games to play on the go and would look incredible on Vita’s OLED screen.

im confused why is Lego Batman 2: DC heros listed twice is that an error?


61

+ DesertAss2in on July 8th, 2013 at 2:00 pm said:

Here is a tip for anyone still enjoying Gods Eater Burst: you can download a free dlc pack from the PlayStation store. Download it to your ps3, then transfer it from your ps3 to your PSP or Vita. After, when you start the game it will automatically recognize the dlc and you can access it in game. It includes new missions/weapons/outfits/hair styles and makes PS PLUS an even better value. Game on!

Buying a bunch of games on discount, and tried the Oddworld demo and it was pretty fun and well, um, odd, so looking forward to that. You offer me 5-8buck games, I won’t buy used. Ok? deal.

When does the update go live for U.S.? I wanna buy X-Men

+ SidNightwalker on July 8th, 2013 at 2:26 pm said:

Excellent, Munch’s Odyssey, a game that has infinitely more depth, charm, and complexity than 99 percent of all modern games, certainly more than any cookie cutter little military shooter.But that’s the great thing about Plus though, it has such variety, you’re not just stuck with the overhyped, lifeless crap that ends up being the most popular these days.Dang, I gotta grab SotC before it goes off sale.

@Kristine- Thanks hope the extra sales will have stuff I want =)
Please do consider doing a PSX sale for US PSN though ^^;

+ Darth-Krayt on July 8th, 2013 at 2:34 pm said:

For people interested in the X-Men Arcade Game, I HIGHLY suggest also thinking about The Simpsons Arcade Game. They are both all time classic arcade beat’em ups, both play the same basically, and both are pretty special in that before now these two games never got console ports back in the day like all the other classic beatem ups. This gen was the first time they’ve ever been offered for home release. VERY cool, I just wish they worked on Vita.

is there gonna be discounts next week also or is it just this week and last week

Way pumped for all these discounts, nice wide range of games to get, I’m finally going to be to get War in the North, been wanting to play that game for a while, and for sure getting Lego Pirates and Batman 2, and I can finally buy Alice again so my Gf can play it haha, bought it for $50 and now buying it again for $4 haha thats not so bad.

+ Knife-8 on July 8th, 2013 at 3:00 pm said:

So now that PS+ is mandatory for online play for the PS 4, and there will not be any online passes for 1st party PS 4 games, does anyone else agree that Sony should remove online passes for used PS 3 and VIta games as well? Surprisingly, EA has already done so, and they were voted as the worst company in America. Or at least Sony could remove the online passes for current PS + subscribers. And who knows, maybe it would slightly boost PS+ membership prior to the release of the PS 4. Tell me what you think. Thanks.

+ passivefamiliar on July 8th, 2013 at 3:02 pm said:

ps plus= win.

to those who complain. go play in traffic.

always excited to get something i know nothing about. might be another gem of a game. and the sales. nice job all around. i’ll be picking up a few of these titles. my backlog is going to get pretty hefty.


74

+ nolo451 on July 8th, 2013 at 3:17 pm said:

$4 for Alice: Madness Returns? I’ll easily pick that up.

Probably will pick up Silent Hill: Book of Memories as well. Had totally forgotten about this game, so seeing it discounted this much is a nice surprise.

Thanks for this great update!

I picked up a $50 PSN card over the weekend to take advantage of the Summer Blast sale! Gonna grab LOTR: War in the North, Lego Batman 2 (for both PS3 & Vita) and Star Wars TFU II for sure!

Also, Munch’s Oddysee HD for free – very nice!

Nice discounts. Umm, pass though. Fast & Furious and Star Trek should also be $5.

I knew the free game was an indie, so I got Deadpool this week. :)

+ Spongehorn on July 8th, 2013 at 4:33 pm said:

All I want for the Vita is PS2 Classics remote play support. C’mon Sony, please? I mean really, there’s hackers out there who can remote play 90% of the content on PS3, yet legit users like myself can’t. Not like I want all games, just OLD PS2 ones!

complete weak sauce this week. these sales are terrible. most of these games retail for less anyways. I wouldnt pay a dime for these old games. i think sony jumped the gun with their huge bundle and AAA title sale a few weeks back before E3. that would have been a “summer blast”


93

+ ramankhutu on July 8th, 2013 at 5:32 pm said:

Very happy about the free Oddworld and the sale on Lego games (I already own Batman but will definitely get Pirates).

Curious about Alice. I tried to play the 1-hour timed trial, but something went wrong and it locked me out even though I downloaded it but never played it. So I have no idea what it’s like.

So glad I joined PS+ right after E3. The content thats been put out since then has been fantastic. I was always going to stick with Playstation/Sony, but this sort of service has ensured my lifelong commitment and my choosing to convert everyone I know.

@56 Ultimate Ghost n Goblins is an excellent choice for Plus. I picked it up a couple of months ago when Capcom had a sale and it looks and plays great on Vita.

@78 Good point, you can get the first Alice game as a free add-on to Alice Madness right now. I have it 99% downloaded and will complete it once I Have Madness installed. I can’t wait to try these games.

Plus has been really awesome of late, both the IGC games and the discounts. Thank you PS plus team!

Here are my suggestions/want list for future IGC games:

PSP – Resistence Retrubution, Ghost of Sparta, Chains of Olympus
Vita – Need for Speed Most Wanted, Unit 13, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom
PS One – Medal of Honor Games, Dino Crisis games, Parasite Eve games
PS2 – Anything GTA
PS3 – Anyhting Dead Space, Mass Effect 3, Dishonored, Heavenly Sword

Just my two cents.
