Awesome sales, my wallet will be poor this week.

There hasn’t been new avatars for 1 month.Can we please get some new avatars? Japan and UK has over 5k avatars to choose from. Why can’t we have what they have?
Whenever there’s new avatars available they’re lame. Can we please get some new avatars? especially anime avatars, there’s barely any love for us anime fans. :(

@2 agreed. I’m still waiting on those Tales of Symphonia avatars the EU has had for 2 months now. The NA psn store is also slow to add any new exciting avatars. :/

Any chance all the FINAL FANTASY games on PSOne and PSP will be all available on the PlayStation Store soon? Still waiting on FF ORIGINS & FFIV in Australia & Europe while North America is missing FFIV and the PSP versions of FF and FFII.

So the sale will still be going ON the 5th and end that night, correct? I don’t get paid until then, and there’s quite a few games here I’ve been wanting to pick up.

    Rain is awesome and wonderfully understated. The shades of Ico have me so excited to get it!

+ Putrid_Undead on April 28th, 2014 at 7:13 am said:

Been hearing a lot about a few of these titles but never tried them out.

Might give Persona or Ys a try at those prices. Shame that Hot Shots Vita isn’t included though. Would have been all over that for 5 bucks.

Muramasa is not free but $7? Hmmm Ok, you win. Take my $$$.

Thinking of buying PSN Plus just to get a discount

    + Chieh Chen on April 28th, 2014 at 9:52 am said:

    Of course it would depend on what you purchase in this sale, but theoretically you could save more than the price of a 1 year PS Plus subscription with two games in this sale alone! (ᵒ̤̑ ₀̑ ᵒ̤̑)*✰


21

+ ChaoticAssault31 on April 28th, 2014 at 7:20 am said:

Of course, about 1-2 weeks after I got MGS HD for vita it goes on sale. :P. Awesome deal though. Wish I would’ve waited.

+ SaberX85 on April 28th, 2014 at 7:20 am said:

What about hot shot golf world invitation for VITA? no discount? thanks


23

+ Zezzler on April 28th, 2014 at 7:20 am said:

Definitely picking up Muramasa. At $7.50 how could you go wrong on such an amazing game!?
YS looks insanely appealing too. I enjoyed Oath of Felghana, so I’m sure I’d enjoy this one too.


24

+ ioshi_US on April 28th, 2014 at 7:22 am said:

OMG amazing sale thx you Sony :)
i’m gonna pick up Meruru, YS, and Muramasa

+ joaryche on April 28th, 2014 at 7:22 am said:

person 4 golden price is too high – gamestop has its original price 19.99
good deal on Ys, Ateliers and Chronos
not sure about Muramasa (is this soon to be IGC like the Euros?)

Really great sale, thank you and keep it up!

+ shuaDove on April 28th, 2014 at 7:24 am said:

Those are some great deals for Golden Week.

For any RPG fan out there you must get Tales of Symphonia, Persona 4 and Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. Muramasa Rebirth, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Ys: Memories of Celceta are must buys as well. I’ve played them all and they’re great.

Was hoping sorcery saga would get discounted as i was curious about it but i will need to pick up Ys


32

+ oversevethousand on April 28th, 2014 at 7:27 am said:

I reeeeaally don’t see the logic in doing this right after you just told everyone that you absolutely should not buy digital Sony products with this PSP/PS1 games on Vita fiasco. Trying to entice people back into buying things?

You’ve got to do a lot to earn that trust back, Sony, and bribes don’t cut it.


33

+ LeonBallard on April 28th, 2014 at 7:28 am said:

I already have Persona 4 Golden & YS Memories of Celceta, witch are AWESOME GAMES, so im going for Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurer of Arland (PS Vita), Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational & Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance…or METAL GEAR HD collection… :/
need more money :(


34

+ RagtagChris on April 28th, 2014 at 7:30 am said:

Nice sale, but I’m sad to see Trails in the Sky and the Asura’s Wrath DLC not included. I’ve been waiting to see those on sale forever!


35

+ Teflon02 on April 28th, 2014 at 7:30 am said:

@6 though I’d wish FFI and FFII anniversary for PSP would be on PSN in NA, Origins still exists with the 2 games atleast, I personally only want the PSP ones (and would pay more for em lol) so I didn’t download Origins to my Vita. But you have missed something. FFIV has been on Vita in NA from day one. FFIV Complete Collection is FFIV, after years and a prologue to after years or epilogue to FFIV or something, I didn’t finish 4 on my vita to know the details yet lol. Point is, FFI – FFX/X-2 are on Vita already in NA, the only one that was missing was FFV until about fall last year. They made it compatible a while ago as of now lol. AUS etc. you need to message the EU PS Blog. They are the ones that would be able to attempt your request.

devil may cry collection and dbz batlle of z!!


37

+ purse317 on April 28th, 2014 at 7:32 am said:

Good idea guys but marketing 101 when you cut prices round off at 99 cents so that $19.59 price should be $17.99 to draw in customers $19.59 makes me think $20 and I may be less likely to buy a game because of that.

Also do not add Muramasa to plus 2 months after I buy it tomorrow I see the EU gets it in May don’t have us buy it and then have it pop up free for plus members in june or july


38

+ Valyrious on April 28th, 2014 at 7:32 am said:

Great sales! Think I’ll be getting Devil May Cry and Rain!
Add more Japanese games please!

WARNING PEOPLE:
Muramasa Rebirth (PS Vita) is free for Europeans this month. It will likely be free for us next month or some time down the line. So try not to buy it on this sale if you don’t mind the risk of it going free soon.

I would have purchased Danganronpa, but $33 is still too high. I’ll get it sometime when it is on sale for under $20. I have enough other games to hold me over till then.

Definitely getting ToSHD and Chrono Cross….. Most likely Muramasa as well……. I would get ZoEHD but just picked that up on Amazon for $11

Valyrious (#38 as of now) makes a good point: If you know you’ll be crying in a few months if the game is given free to other people despite how much you’ll be able to enjoy it starting tomorrow…by all means don’t buy it.
