European blog manager just confirmed that there will be new psvita games at gamescon and now you guys are celebrating a psvita game sale? am i dreaming? is psvita about to get the support it deserves? now all it needs is a system, memory card price drops.

oh what games am i planning to pick up from the sale? im probably gonna be the only one interested in it but im thinking about Super Monkey Ball, maybe Silent Hill.

Ridge Racer (Vita) is not the same game as Ridge Racer Unbounded. Might want to update that picture there.

I’m going to need a bigger memory card. If only the 32GB wasn’t $100. Drop the price Sony!!!!!!

so will we ever see free vita games for playstation plus now? or just psp games still each month?

2/3 of the headline-graphic games aren’t by Japanese developers.

I have been waiting for UMvC3 to go on sale and now that week I’ll be in an area with no internet connection :(

+ randomhero1270 on August 12th, 2013 at 7:11 am said:

This is awesome! Just an FYI… The Ridge Racer graphic is for Unbounded which is a PS3 game. :)

+ binarymellon on August 12th, 2013 at 7:12 am said:

This is great. Was holding off buying the MGS Legacy Collection because I thought $80 was a bit much to get it plus the Vita HD Collection.

+ angibri2000 on August 12th, 2013 at 7:15 am said:

Wow! I have most of these already but I’ll def. will pick up a couple I missed out on. I’m glad you guys are doing these sales (a la Steam). Between PS and Steam I have more games than time to play them. =( Keep up the good work guys!

Awesome surprise! Now if only we could get some bigger memory cards!

+ ninjatuned on August 12th, 2013 at 7:16 am said:

How dare you put such great games at such ridiculous prices? I haven’t even finished Dragon’s Crown yet! I’ll teach you a lesson by only buying 3 or 5 of these games.

GODD*** IT!!! I just bought Muramasa and now you tell me there’s a sale?

Also, I have $60 in my PSN wallet for SR4 and you guys dare tease me with such discounts. Screw you guys.


21

+ vanwinkle on August 12th, 2013 at 7:25 am said:

Oh, really weird graphic. Ridge Racer Unbounded is not on the Vita, and Silent Hill Book of Memories is from Wayforward, a western developer.

Otherwise, great sale.


22

+ Shadow_Enz on August 12th, 2013 at 7:26 am said:

Tempting, but you cannot support digital downloads when charging up to $100 for a 32gb proprietary memory card.

You just can’t.

Also, the discounts aren’t steep enough for collectors and resellers to forego purchasing physical copies of the media.

Those 2 variables creates a formula that will interfere with any metrics tied to this promotion.

$0.02


23

+ Shadow_Enz on August 12th, 2013 at 7:27 am said:

To add some like to my comment in 21, it’s good to see some Vita love, for sure. That doesn’t go un-appreciated or unnoticed. Please bring more Vita love.

+ wilfareus on August 12th, 2013 at 7:28 am said:

this is insane.. I almost regret buying Soul Sacrifice Day ONE with that PS+ price now :O


25

+ Elvick_ on August 12th, 2013 at 7:28 am said:

Too bad there’s hardly any localized JRPGs to fit in this sale for PS Vita… Also, Wayfoward developed SH: Book of Shadows… they aren’t Japanese.

Touch My Katamari is totally worth $3.75. It’s a great game, but like all of Namco Bandai’s early/launch Vita games, lacking in content.

I already own most of these games, so won’t be picking any up. Only ones I don’t have and want are MGS Collection and maybe Dynatasy Warriors Next, but I’d rather buy them at retail.

+ YoruAzeniaSIC on August 12th, 2013 at 7:28 am said:

Am I the only one noticing the picture says 75% off for plus but in the price listings there only 50% off for some of the games o.e still glad to see a vita sale.


27

+ cowbanana on August 12th, 2013 at 7:31 am said:

Very nice sale! I hope the incompetents who run the SCEE store have something similar lined up…


28

+ LittleMotti on August 12th, 2013 at 7:31 am said:

That’s quite the awesome sales. :o
btw is there any news of more psp tittle coming to the vita?(compatibility)

You guys are killing my wallet! Awesome sales.

+ toink004 on August 12th, 2013 at 7:35 am said:

Awesome sale, I guess this makes up the bad free ps+ games this month.


31

+ ThiagoArroadie on August 12th, 2013 at 7:36 am said:

Almost hurts me to see such a nice price for soul sacrifice after paying 36 bucks for it. But worth every penny!

Anyway, adding MGS to my collection!

Glad to be PS+

Glad to see a sale, but nothing for me. Would have liked more games at 75% off…

+ zombie9 on August 12th, 2013 at 7:40 am said:

I haven’t play a VITA and I don’t plan on it ether nice sale though.. Lower the price of your memory cards there is no reason for it other than greed


36

+ dh4645 on August 12th, 2013 at 7:42 am said:

i wonder how many of these will be free for ps+ in the coming months?

i know the vita katamari is not a great game, but for $3.75, it’s like you are making me buy it.

i kinda want MGS HD collection, but that should be free for ps+ at some point.

+ Arc_of_Infinity on August 12th, 2013 at 7:44 am said:

I…am very, very happy with this. So many games I’ve been holding off on…and now I really, really need to just pull the trigger on that 32GB card I’ve been wanting…

crap lol just bought soul sacrifice n muramasa on friday :P got the limited edt. for muramasa tho. own most of these but need more copys for adhoc at home :P might jus buy them all hahahahaha great deals!!! thanks sony :)


39

+ Chizuzuu on August 12th, 2013 at 7:46 am said:

As a plus member, I already have gravity rush via igc. Is the “free” price to keep the game even if plus expires, or just the same igc deal? If it is to keep, is there a way to get that even if you already have it in igc?

That aside, I think you’ve found my price on soul sacrifice and ragnarok odyssey, and possibly muramasa rebirth, monkey ball, and doa5+. I may also pick up katamari at that price, I already have the card, but this way I will not need to change cards out.


40

+ MyrequeArk on August 12th, 2013 at 7:48 am said:

Guilty Gear is definitely a guaranteed pick up for me.
I’d pick up Muramasa if it was about… 7 bucks cheaper too :(

Definitely a good sale!


41

+ BernardoOne on August 12th, 2013 at 7:49 am said:

can someone slap SCEE in the face? I want this kinds of sales, goddamit! If i had a US account I would be buying half of that list.


42

+ yowzerz on August 12th, 2013 at 7:49 am said:

Damn, I just bought Muramasa at full price…oh well! It is a killer game on Vita, especially at that sale price. I will probably grab a few of these titles. Great prices, thanks Sony!


43

+ TXCScorpion on August 12th, 2013 at 7:51 am said:

Let me call you a cab Sony because you seem to be intoxicated. These sales are far too cheap. Is this my special friend discount in action? Either way don’t mind I completely take advantage of the situation.

Also if you plan on picking up New Little Kings Story beware there is a TON of slow down. Once you get more than a few people following you (pikmin style) the games goes into slow mo. It’s not game breaking but I eventually stopped because it ruined my experience.

Aside from that, I gotta go pick more change out of the fountain at the mall. Gonna need it!


44

+ afigueroa on August 12th, 2013 at 7:51 am said:

Damn Sony!! My wallet hurts already after that Rayman sale last week. Now you’re giving me Murasama on sale?? Thank God for my Playstation credit card and the free PSN codes I get!!

+ rustohariken on August 12th, 2013 at 7:52 am said:

Thank you, im realy waiting for sfxtekken n ultimate discount digital version, time to sell my cartridges


46

+ shuaDove on August 12th, 2013 at 7:52 am said:

Great sale!!! Although I already own every game (except for Guilty Gear Accent XX Core + R), this a great chance for Vita owners to grab some great games at some competitive prices.


47

+ Ryumoau on August 12th, 2013 at 7:55 am said:

Finally!! Sony has a real deal for once!!

I’ll be picking up Soul Sacrifice, Little King Story, Dynasty Warriors Next, and Muramasa Rebirth. :)


48

+ TUNA-EGG on August 12th, 2013 at 7:56 am said:

With sales like these, I don’t even mind busting out my wallet :) Thanks!

Will definitely pick up:
New Little King’s Story
Ridge Racer

Probably:
Muramasa Rebirth
Touch My Katamari

————–

And I hope Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed gets a big discount so I can buy both the Vita and PS3 versions. Been having way too much fun with the demo.

+ Grognard66 on August 12th, 2013 at 7:56 am said:

Oh well. I was really hoping for Okami HD or Earth Defense Force 2017.

+ Gorvi on August 12th, 2013 at 7:57 am said:

Holy crap, you guys are absolutely evil. The only saving grace for me is that I already own many of those games, but I could still easily buy 5-6 of those for a good $60. I’ll probably limit myself to $40, but damn.
