I am having a blast with this summer sale and all of the other discounts and games. I purchased Lego Pirates of the Caribbean a few weeks back and Platinum’d it already. Need more Lego fun. I want to wait until Lego Lord of the Rings goes on sale but I don’t know if I can wait that long! Besides it’s a decent price as it is. Grabbing Sorcery today. Charging up my Move controllers. Thanx Sony. Good stuff. Great games. Great fun. Great prices. Your ad says “Greatness awaits”, I say, It’s already here! Hello…PlayStation Plus!

Sup Morgan

I have been aching for some games to either go on sale or arrive in da IGC. The most wanted game is, u guessed it, Need for Speed Most Wanted. Seeing as EA, gasp, actually lowered the price of both versions maybe it wouldn’t be off the table. That and I dearly regret not pulling the trigger on Guacamelee, GIVE ME A SECOND CHANCE. Another prime candidate is Little Kings Story.

I don’t mind psp games, but give us the Holy Grail of what da PSP was known for, JRPGs. Off da top I wouldn’t mind seeing Tactics Ogre: let us Cling Together on der.

Thanks 4 all ur hard werk.

UNBELIEVBLE (don’t care if I spelled it wrong), c’mon guys, can you please stop whining, the games you want on ps plus are way to hard to be on ps+, you cant expect every vita game to be free, then it wouldnt even be worthing having ps plus for sony, GOD, Ps plus is already so great to us so stop BEING GREEDY!

Will PS+ users get a chance to preorder Cloudberry Kingdom for Vita at a similar discount when it gets listed? Really want it for Vita, but unable to preorder it yet.

Also, any chance of N+ getting ported to Vita?

I assure you Morgan does read all comments when he has enough time to do so.

The blog wants all of our feedback, wether it be positive or negative. It’s what makes the PS community what it is today.

As for the earlier comment made about giving PS+ members “movie rewards” I am all for it if possible. After all the system is dynamic & not limited to one form of entertainment.

I really hope we get some good PS1 and PS2 RPG and Adventure games on PS Plus.
That would be really nice.

@215 Why don’t you? I bet your one of those idiots PrimeroIncognito was talking about. I own both a PS3 and a PSP. Even if I do get a Vita, I wouldn’t mind still getting PSP games as there is more of a library for them and I’m pretty sure a lot of people say the same thing. So what happens if I own neither a PS3 or Vita? How am I suppose to enjoy PS+ if I only own a PSP? Your argument is void!

And I wouldn’t mind that at all. It isn’t insulting and maybe your just too poor to own a PS3.

Wow what a great game to release for the vita for free. Is there any chance of Midway Arcade Treasures extend being made compatible for vita? I would love to play the Mortal Kombat games on there. I wish MK collection was on the vita :(

Psp games are ok but keep the vita coming!

Wow, another psp game? Guess you think we bought Vita’s to play psp games… Well at least I got Gravity Rush and Uncharted from PS Plus, no reason to get a second year of PS Plus with such horrible IGC updates (too bad I missed Ninja Gaiden). Thanks Sony US for disappointing me every month..

I would love to see an Ea Sports game get added in the free games for playstation plus subscribers.

+ ProfessorOhki on July 24th, 2013 at 1:21 pm said:

@254 I wouldn’t expect all Vita games to be free, but the problem here is that continuous PSP releases sends the message that there’s so few Vita games, that they need the money from all the sales they can get. It might be a bit of a chicken and egg problem: more Vita games on PS+ might translate into more interest in Vita hardware, which would mean more dev interest. Then again, I wouldn’t expect much for a while. The Vita will idle until the PS4 launch, then they’ll try to use the remote-play integration to re-launch the Vita.

It’s just disheartening to see a great piece of hardware get treated like it’s just an incremental upgrade of an old device.

@ Morgan , (this is probably a stupid question lol) Will I have to re-download all of my Playstation Plus games when my PS4 comes in? or will they somehow automatically load once we sign in with our PSN account? I have the 1st Gen PS3 with a huge HDD and a TON of Plus games downloaded, so just curious lol. Thanks!

Metal slug is fun, guys.. With that said as someone who only has a vita, I can’t expect as much as the ps3 because of the relatively sparse library. I am satisfied with one good title a month. Zero escape was fun!

Good update, gotta love Metal Slug. Pretty much everything SNK makes it pure gold.

On that note Metal Slug 8 needs to happen!!!

When can we expect more ps vita titles in the ps plus, is already time to change the three titles that are here since the launch of the service in my opinion.

Sweet, more PSP games Thanks. Don’t listen to the whiner Morgan there are far more PSP owners the Vita owners. I’m not buying one until it gets revamped (Get rid of those Memory Cards). I might buy the PSP Go thought since we get so many PSP games. Love Plus, but can we get the Upcoming game announcement before half way through the first week?

Honestly a week based primarily around DLC sounds fantastic? A few cheap PS3 games for free (maybe you could bring back the original Borderlands, I already have it, but it’d be nice to see a boost of online players!) and then the DLC could be on sale. It would certainly increase sales of that DLC and promote the game. I’m honestly waiting for the Borderlands 2 character packs to go on sale like it did for PC and XBOX gamers. I paid for the season pass, but I’m not giving up another 20 for two characters. That’s the same price as three months of PS+. Is there any news as to what the next PS3 title is gonna be up for grabs? (I don’t have a vita, so I’m missing out sadly).


277

+ kezins on July 25th, 2013 at 11:53 pm said:

I’ll be honest..I’d like to see less PS+ concentration on Vita compatible content and more PS3 content. Considering the largest Vita card is only 32GB and expensive, you can’t build up much of a collection without running out if space.

I actually like getting PSP games, they’re pretty good, and I think it’s good since we’re getting so many good PS3 games, that we might actually have money to buy Vita games. That being said, I’d like to hopefully see any of the persona games released on PS+.

I bought the Leona Character DLC for Metal Slug XX on PS Store website but I can not download it on PS Vita. Why? The site says that the DLC works on PS Vita and PSP. I want my money back. ¬ ¬
