You can’t. People have been asking for a way to do that(buy a game, you “own” as part of PS Plus) for quite a while now, but SCE basically says no.

it’s a bit of a hassle and super annoying, but i keep a second account now to buy games i already ‘own’ through ps+ because i don’t really own them and i don’t wanna miss out on a decent price. it’s usually never + cheap but if it’s decent enough i’ll spend the bread on it

+ carlpain on December 25th, 2013 at 5:01 am said:

I hope we get better deals next week. I spent like 40 on MS the last couple of days because of their sales. They even got The Wolf Among Us for 10 bucks (season pass). They even gave us the first episode free. Not Live required.

after this past week of booty from microsoft i doubt i’ll ever buy anything from them for xbox. unless it’s a rave exclusive. i still don’t have a 360 almost every reason i’ve wanted one sucked major balls or eventually came to pc.

ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 was on sale for 5 dollars, the dlc for 1.25 and the costumes for 5. it was being delisted soon and it had already left the psn store before i found out. so for an entire week i kept trying to purchase the damn game over and over again but to no avail. maybe because i didn’t have gold. customer service was of no help. 3 times they told me they’d email a solution before the end of the day, once they told me they’d apply a “special condition to my account” one dude even told me it’s due to the server problems with a&e tv app not working. what?! sorry but i’d need to see an impressive showing to get me to even consider like the plus sale in europe or generally ps plus in japan

@55; I had the same issue when Super Street Fighter IV when on sale a few weeks back. What they were trying to do was to delete SSFIV from my download list entirely, so I would be able to purchase it directly. I forgot all about it, though, and by the time I remembered, the sale was already over. Somehow it’s still in my download list, though, so I still have it with PS+.

Try that, though. I went through the Chat Support, and they are surprisingly helpful and competent. They SHOULD be able to delete it for you so you’re eligible to purchase it at the discounted rate, without needing two separate accounts.

It’s nice to have 20 Zen tables added to the PS4 for free (for owners of the PS3/Vita versions).

It would be nice if Sony could move the PS1/PS2 classics over as well. I would buy games like GTA San Andreas if I knew I could move it to the PS4 at some point.


64

+ SpooNManX on December 25th, 2013 at 6:44 am said:

And yeah,
Whatever happened to Sony considering to add mp3 and DNLA?

I guess they figured we would all forget about it by now. Playing Beat Hazard Ultra the other day on the PS3 made me realize the PS4 is just not as functional as the PS4 and that’s kind of sad.

@69 Yea I was waiting for WD season pass as well as other things to spend my christmas funds on. Too bad the store is down for maintenance so I can’t throw some money Sony’s way. I actually took my PS3 out of the box again because apparently I can still sign in on it but not my ps4 way to give us a head’s up on the maintenance guys usually you’re on top of it. Get it fixed soon, please.

+ ThumbsOfSteel74 on December 25th, 2013 at 12:12 pm said:

BlueBl1zzard, AizawaYuuichi, and NeoRaidenX made most of my points for me this post. :)

@AizawaYuuichi: I’m sure it’s been posted somewhere, but I didn’t know the TWD 2 Season Pass was to be $15 only until Jan. 7th. Thanks for the info. Cue new round of rage to begin Jan. 8th. -_-

@b1tters: But how does that work? Don’t both accounts need to have Plus? Another non-Plus account could still buy the game for $2.50 (still a great deal). But nobody here wants to pay twice for Plus just to take advantage of sales in relatively infrequent scenarios. Please respond if that actually works with a single Plus account.

@CraddaPoosta: That’s not a bad idea. In any case, it couldn’t hurt. Again, I urge you or anyone else to respond if Sony does agree to that request. Still, it would be nice if that issue could be addressed for all Plus members in a firmware update (or an update to the PS Store app).


74

+ ThumbsOfSteel74 on December 25th, 2013 at 12:13 pm said:

The following is not directed at anyone mentioned above: Please withhold your rage until you see what’s actually on the PS Store. Make sure you’re on the right page, and that the sale item in question is supposed to be on sale at the given date and time. Sometimes people make mistakes when coding the store updates, and sometimes OTHER people make mistakes when typing up the corresponding blog posts. Thank you.

Thankyou for the games, great deals for sure, but is there anyway of Sony updating these games, as every other game I download and go and finally ready to play, there usually is always another update for them before actually getting to play them, and I am sure that I am not the only one who may think this also or wish for, thank you !!!!

I just got The Walking Dead Season 2 Season Pass for $15 on the Playstation Store. :) Awesome, I have been waiting for this thing for a week and I am glad they lowered the price to $15 until January 7. (January 7 it goes back up to $20)


79

+ SuperTiso on December 25th, 2013 at 1:04 pm said:

Just wanted to chime on what some others have mentioned. It’s really mind boggling that Sony couldn’t have found a way to allow the “free” content we get through PLUS to be purchased whenever we choose to, especially when it’s on sale. I have to use 7 day trials and 30 trials just to maneuver into getting what I want when I want it and at the price I need it at.

Onto my main issue, guess I’ll have to call Sony about Doki Doki not being on my PS4 download list as well, even through it clearly advertised as such. I still to this never got my Borderlands problem fixed by them so I’m even less inclined to want to go through the hassle with them on this.

+ Rez33 on December 25th, 2013 at 1:35 pm said:

Zen Pinball 2 looks great in 2D. The 3D is disappointing – it is EXACTLY the same as PS3. Hopefully Sony will update the PS4 firmware to allow 1080p 3D. Dr. Strange table isn’t working for me like everyone has mentioned. Can’t import it or find it on the store.


81

+ AizawaYuuichi on December 25th, 2013 at 2:18 pm said:

To the few people who are asking about it:

I’m guessing the Dr. Strange tables has actually not been released for PS4 yet. It showed up on my Table Collection yesterday when I first booted up Zen Pinball 2, but when it wouldn’t import and I didn’t see it on the PS Store, I clicked on it in the table listing and clicked “Buy Table”, which brought up a message saying “This item is not yet available for purchase or no longer available for purchase.” So, hopefully we’ll get an update from Zen soon on the issue with this table, or maybe it will magically appear as a New Year’s present for us. Either way, enjoying all the other tables so far.


82

+ AizawaYuuichi on December 25th, 2013 at 2:30 pm said:

@ melodicmizery: Zen Pinball 2 is not a PS+ item. It’s the same as it was on PS3/Vita when it launched. You get the “platform” for free with a sample table. If you like it, you buy other tables. Yes, we’ve gotten table packs in the IGC before, but ZP2 has always been free.

The Killzone Trial was clearly stated as running from 12/28 – 12/31, so you’ll be able to play it starting sometime on Saturday.

From what the devs are saying, and dates listed on the Store, Contrast is leaving PS+ on January 7th and Don’t Starve is launching on PSN that same day, so is probably going to be the January PS4 IGC game.

As for the IGC updates between PS3/Vita? When the game is cross-buy, we get both versions. When it isn’t cross-buy, we don’t get both versions. Neither the Sonic karting game nor Urban Trial Freestyle were cross-buy, so we’ll only be getting the Vita versions of those. Also, they’re coming the end of the month, and they were never listed as “cross-buy” in any of the PS+ posts, so it should have been obvious we weren’t getting the PS3 versions.

And lastly, it’s “would have” not “would of”… too many people just on this one article are spelling that wrong, it’s starting to make my brain hurt.

I have a theory about the lackluster late December content. I think PSN figures people are spending a lot of money on Xmas gifts and buying games and they’d rather we spend more of our holiday bucks instead of getting more free content. Take a look at the past month’s/year releases. They are MUCH better after the holidays, PSN is basically saying, it’s Xmas…you’re out of luck.

I imagine things will pick up in January (hoping, anyway).

“Now live on PlayStation Store: Zen Pinball 2 on PS4, free Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (PS Vita) for PlayStation Plus members, and a slew of new discounts. Happy holidays!”

I wish somebody would have done that a few days ago for the PS+ update so I wouldnt have been so upset yesterday when I tried to DL it for my PS3. I’m fine w/ Vta folks getting a game and not us PS3 owners, we get our share, but it needs to be pointed out what system a game is on. No everybody is going to own all 3 systems.
