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

Last week, we kicked off July by adding the critically acclaimed first-person shooter Battlefield 3 to the Instant Game Collection. 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.

Hell yeah! Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee!
Best PS+ content of the month right there!

@94, Definitely pick up Arkham Asylum. It is probably the best Batman-based game around, except for Arkham City, that is.

Morgan, a lot of Vita users are unable to download any of the stuff being offered for the Vita. There is a huge thread on the Community Forum, here: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Vita-Support/Perpetual-quot-Preparing-to-download-quot-after-firmware-update/m-p/40107027#U40107027

The thread has 11 pages already and nobody from Sony said anything about his yet. So, it is kind of pointless to offer content for the Vita if we are unable to get it. Would you be able to forward this message to someone who could take a closer look at this issue?

Thank you!

Can’t wait to check out the Prince of Persia trilogy at $8, I loved the first one back in the day, didn’t care too much for the others though so $8 is perfect! Also picked up Shadow of the Colossus last week. Great deals. Also really excited to play Oddworld, haven’t played one of these games since the PS1.

All I’m aiming at is Alice: Madness Returns. I tried out the game as a free trial and I didn’t expect how good it was. Well, at least to me. I wonder if I can still get the first game when I purchase Alice: Madness Returns…

Looking forward to playing oddworld on my ps3. I know this is out of topic but I would like to see movie discounts for ps plus subscribers!

+ GMFCO311 on July 8th, 2013 at 7:34 pm said:

Just curious as I’m new to PS+! Do I have to physically download the whole free PS+ games being offered in order to have them and play them in the future years down the road? Or can I just “free purchase them” and as long as they show up on my download list, is that good enough?

Only reason I ask is because I have already ran out of room on my HDD and I don’t want to delete and re-download games all night long. (hope I worded things to where it makes sense and someone understands, lol)

If anyone that knows that can answer this and know the answer for sure, that would be great and most helpful until I can get a bigger hard drive! :)

I got all excited when someone here mentioned that Crysis is on sale this entire week for $5. But when I went to the PSN store, it was still listed at $19.99. Went back and looked at his post on the 2nd page, and he was talking about Crysis being on sale for the XBOX 360. Hopefully, Crysis will make the list here for $5 sometime in the near future as well.


116

+ Investor9872 on July 8th, 2013 at 8:18 pm said:

GMFCO311: Yes. You can just “free purchase” the Plus’ free games so that they can be placed on your download list. You can then download these “free” games anytime in the future when you have more room on your HDD as long as your Plus subscription is active.


117

+ oycomics on July 8th, 2013 at 8:24 pm said:

@111 – GMFCO311

Yes, as long as you “purchase” them, they’re yours to play; downloading them/keeping them on the HDD is not required. You can download, delete, re-download, and repeat to your heart’s content . . . at least till your ISP cuts you off for bandwidth overages, lol.

As long as PS+ exists you will have those games tied to your account, even if you let your membership lapse and renew later. Lately, I’ve been using the web store and “buying” them all, but only adding the ones I want to play right away to my download list.

Awesome update! Last week I broke almost exactly even on my annual Plus membership just in savings on buying games . . . and it’s only July. Been wanting those particular LEGO games for awhile, so now it’s a true savings from here on out AND I still get free games.

Again and again and again for million times, please change the person in-charge of picking the games for vita here or SOON many ps vita user will end the subscription and dump the vita to the trash can! I’m thinking of trading my vita to nintendo 3ds xl, nintendo gives so much love for nintendo players! SONY CAN’T EVEN PUT A DECENT GAME FOR SALE!

+ Draxido on July 8th, 2013 at 9:09 pm said:

As always, thank you for the games, but i need to ask if sony cared for those who dont have a PS3 and have a VITA instead? ps plus for PS3 is amazing but for cita its just okay… when we will se rayman origins as the EU etc, in the Summer discount, only Mortal kombat, Batman and Silent hill are for the vita… i know this is an amazing service…. for the PS3 owners, thank you !!


122

+ RK128 on July 8th, 2013 at 9:14 pm said:

I have to say the sales for the past two months have been really great; between the E3 Sale and the Summer Blast Sale, I got AC III: Liberation, Sound Shapes, Flower, Ratchet HD Collection, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Shadow of the Colossus, and tomorrow Silent Hill Vita, Alice Madness Returns, Lego Batman 2 Vita and some other game, that’s a ton of games for around 40-60 dollars :)

I have to say you guys at Sony are doing a wonderful job with the PS Plus service between all the great free games and the huge discounts, and for giving me the most games I have ever had for a console a just got (Plus given me about 15-18 games for free by now :)). Keep up the great job and I cant wait for Gamescom for the inevitable huge Vita sale next month.

+ Senjutsu_Dav on July 8th, 2013 at 10:04 pm said:

Bought Mortal Kombat for 5$ (so cheap), and gonna get LotR: War in the North for 5$ too, and also Alice: Madness Returns for 4$.

What are those prices? So low, it’s almost impossible. I feel like I’m stealing the PSN, haha.

I wouldn’t have bought those games at full price, so they’ll still make more money this way. It’s a good idea since you can’t really go wrong at 5$. I mean, what can you get for 5$? A cappuccino?


124

+ RulitoCR on July 8th, 2013 at 10:26 pm said:

I’ll buy for sure The Simpsons Arcade Game, X-Men and Prince Of Persia Classic Trilogy HD!! And maybe some Lego game!

About Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD, I think that this is a little meh in comparison to Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee!

In eu psn plus, from November 2012 till present, they are giving 2 free vita games a month for psn plus vita users. But here in NA psn plus, only 1 ps vita and 1 junk psp games? I bought vita to play vita games, I already dump my old psp because I had enough of playing psp games but now I’m wasting my money on psp? Why can’t NA do something about what EU did?

+ AizawaYuuichi on July 9th, 2013 at 1:37 am said:

To everyone complaining about no Vita games in the sale, Lego Batman 2 is on sale for both PS3 and Vita, and Silent Hill: Book of Memories is a Vita game. Two of the eighteen games on sale are Vita titles. Yeah, that’s not a lot, but when you compare the libraries of the two systems, it’s a pretty good ratio. The Vita doesn’t have that many games, and as long as Vita owners keep being cheap little whiners and won’t actually BUY the games they want, the situation won’t get any better.

+ KnightRid on July 9th, 2013 at 5:13 am said:

Sales are nice but why the inflated normal prices?

List price shows $29.99 for Hitman Trilogy HD at Amazon and sells for $19.99 right now, so it is still nice to save an extra $4 for Plus members but the pricing used makes it seem like a whole lot better deal than it really is.

I still do not get why digital downloads are not a good bit cheaper than buying the full box version. I have heard for years that the cost of packaging was driving the price of games up but it seems that was a lie since the digital downloads still are not any cheaper. Guess it was one of those things that sounded good at the time to make the pricing higher with justification of extra cost.

For those asking about the two LEGO Batman prices . . .

The Normal Price for the PS3 version is $29.99 and the VITA version is $19.99, and unfortunately, it’s not a cross-buy game so it’s listed twice; methinks these sales charts need one more column to indicate the platform and/or if a game is cross-buy.
