When I said I’m not happy with all the indie games, I was referring to the games we get on PS Plus. :P

Hey, could you guys stop having these fire sales? I’m a regular in a PSN thread on another site and every time these sales happen, we get a bunch of new people asking the same stupid questions over and over. It’s really annoying. Thanks.

Where’s the PS4 Sale? Are we to be skipped two sales in a row? It’s not bad enough that us PS4 owners have $400 Super Nintendo’s with all these indie titles but we have to pay full price for this crap?? Meanwhile broken promises like launch day Watch Dogs and Driveclub, so far I am not impressed. Not impressed at all.

The last Flash Sale, I already had everything, thankfully that is not the case here. I’m definitely going to pick up The Raven, and after watching the videos of Little Ninjas, I might pick that one up as well. I never heard of it before, but it looks pretty good. The only trouble is that I have no idea when I’m going to find time to play everything. At any rate, my there be many more Flash Sales in the future, hopefully ones that include PS4 content!

Bring Fat Princess to the psvita and ps4.

i’m planning to buy a few of these tonight. All i know about these games is that for the money you pay (5 bucks) you get some serious gameplay. But keep in mind that if you are going to buy red dead redemption, after this month, the online servers will be shut down. this will be the case at a lot of these rockstar games which are in sale right now. BUT…. when you buy the following games, you won’t be dissapointed, trust me ;)

1- Best game of m all: Max Payne 3, just give it a try!!!
2-the second best game: Bioshock 1, if you didn’t play it yet, give it a try now!
3-NO explentations, just buy: Mortal Kombat
4- One of my favourites: Spec Ops the line
5: and ofcaurse: Red Dead Redemption

Need more Vita games! Otherwise, some good deals here

I can’t buy guacamelee. Something tells me it will turn to a ps+ free game.


74

+ NICKLEBAG_187 on May 2nd, 2014 at 6:24 pm said:

@70 perhaps you are right, my disappointment may be premature. However development kits went out ages ago and compared to the PS3 the 4 is way easier to program for so I guess I was hoping Sony would have had a better plan for AAA releases given it’s stellar in house development teams. I just want more than arcade shooters and airbrushed PS3 titles for my investment.

+ Florensius1682 on May 2nd, 2014 at 6:44 pm said:

I m looking forward to goden sale / flash sale ps4 games too…. Because I just bought a Ps4 and a week later I bought Ps4 camera + Infamous 2nd Sons too and it cost a lot of money. I want to have a game that support Ps4 Camera like Just Dance 2014 and of course with low price (how about discount 50% and ps+ get further 10%) =))
I’m in pre order digitally Watch Dog right now…..

+ godshand3547 on May 2nd, 2014 at 6:56 pm said:

ill give bioshock a try
You guys at Sony are gonna make me have a heart attack. First with the golden week (even though i only bought 1 game since most of the ones i wished were on Vita, which i dont have) and now this weekend sales.
Anyway, keep up this excellent work. And thanks for everything

+ TJF588 on May 2nd, 2014 at 6:59 pm said:

Very few here that don’t have an “Ultimate Edition” or equivalent. Pipe dream as it is, I’d rather wait for a deal on such (though, say, Persona 4 Arena’s full package is still too high for me this time around, in the Golden Week offerings). What I have aside, I would’ve gone for Guacamelee, but not taking the chance of being locked out from its full collection just because I’ll’ve owned the base game. Doog Noogum Fivever only has its two add-ons, but already have it and its kin for PC, and while I’m an amateur trophy whore, not quite “my bag” to draw me in for now.

But, good to see more of these promotions. Hope there’ll be more to mesh with me next time!

Do you need Playstation Plus to buy a Flash Sale game? I wanna buy them, but I don’t wanna have PS Plus, since I don’t need it.

Some PS4 would be much appreciated.

Please bring another 99 cent indie flash sale if you can. I really want to buy Cubixx HD for 99 cents if possible.

@Castaneda98_Ace, no u don’t need plus for the sale but I would recommend it. Thanks to plus my 1tb hd is not big enough to hold all my games. Sure u will find stuff that u normally wouldn’t play but I say why not try it anyways cuz u never know


85

+ Trothgar on May 2nd, 2014 at 8:27 pm said:

It would be nice if we could see what platforms these games are for. I have a PS4 and I have no idea if any of these games are available for my platform.

Ill give L.A. Noire a try seen a walk through of it on youtube enjoyed it might play it. I mean hey these are only 5 bucks!! Def a steal

+ Ultimate_Atheist on May 2nd, 2014 at 8:36 pm said:

Oh, how I LOVE Flash Sales!!! This one, however, I’m going to pretty much have to skip. I already have Bioshock 1 & 2 and Guacamelee! (For PS3 and PS Vita, and the rest doesn’t exactly ‘do it for me’. Lara Croft’s game in the Sale is remarkably similar to Dead Nation as far as visual perspective goes and I’ve never even heard of most of the other games offered. I have, however hasd the Fat Princess Demo before, but only my family had tried it out. I’ll check with them to see if they liked it enough to play the ‘Real Deal’. If so, I’ll get it for them. Mortal Kombat, I’m slightly interested in, but this appears to be just the ‘Basic’ version that requires downloading (which requires BUYING the DLC characters (Freddy Kruger, etc.). That wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the fact that, due to the game’s current ‘Low’ price, buying each DLC item is the equivalent of buying the game over and over again. I know I’m probably being a ‘Sour Puss’ by pointing that out, but it’s true. I don’t know.. Hopefully, the next Flash Sale will be as special as all the others I’ve seen before it. I still love you, Sony. =)

Everyone should buy Arcania at that price! Tons of fun, play it on hard!

Another great sale. Already have all the ones that interest me, but still.

@BS peddlers: Please read a few things and find out what you’re talking about *before* posting. It’s simply not true to say that servers for GTA IV or Red Dead Redemption will be shutting down. Certain R* Social Club features and the like won’t work any more, but the core experience will remain intact.

On the other hand, the online multiplayer for some titles like Midnight Club: LA *will* be shutting down at the end of this month. So get to it already!

I’m afraid after I bought the games you were going to put it into PS plus in the next month or something. hahaha I’ll get The Raven and Fat princess for sure. : )

+ MattDanam on May 2nd, 2014 at 9:35 pm said:

I wonder if any of these games are going to become PS Vita compatible for two days then be pulled away without any explanation whatsoever to the consumers. Oh hey, didn’t Sony do that last week? Absolutely despicable. These sales doesn’t compensate for what happened. PS1 Classics and PSP titles, all of them, should be available to the biggest gaming market, which is North America. Do the right thing, Sony.

i might pick up The Mark of Kri, i haven’t played that game in soooooo long

+ Sarges24 on May 2nd, 2014 at 9:59 pm said:

Mini Ninjas!!!!!! I was actually just looking at that a few nights ago wondering if I should order it. I absolutely loved that game. Mark of Kri, great PS2 classic. Definitely one of those few games I regret finally getting rid of. Do have to weed out the collection from time to time though. Some other great stuff as well. PS Now had me playing Guacamelee so for $5 I might have to pick it up and keep playing. Starting to have a lot of great deals on solid stuff. Keep up the great work Sony!

Hey, I am kinda new with the digital purchases, so I wanted to ask how often does Sony offer these flash sales? I miss the last one (the 0.99 one) but now with the original Bioshock for five dollars I am tempted to give it a shot
