“Yeah come on, Sony. Can’t you guys put everything on sale for free every week? What’s wrong with you? Actually, I think I should be getting paid for everything that I want. That’s the right way to do business! PLEASE PUT EVERY SINGLE 15 YEAR OLD PLAYSTATION CLASSICS GAME UP FOR SALE OR I WILL GO DRY HUMP MY 360 AND NEVER BUY ANYTHING SONY RELATED EVER AGAIN UNTIL NEXT WEEK WHEN SOMETHING COMES OUT THAT I WANT!!! I MEAN IT!!!”

Seriously if you complain about sales, you need to get a life.

Sheesh @ people who are jealous of Plus deals, but won’t buy Plus. You guys must suck at math.

So How long is Beyond Good and Evil Exclusive to Xbox? When is the other SOE games coming out? Akimi Village, Rochard, Sideways?

tylerh1701 said:

Was excited for Savage Moon until I realized it was the PSP version…any chance the PS3 version gets a discount too?

iTofuMan said:

March 8th, 12:38 pm

Will be picking up Dead Nation!

its nice that Castle Crasher is getting a discount. i bought it some time ago, but online was dead. hopefully with this we see a lot of people playing online!

SolidusSquirrel said:

March 8th, 12:41 pm

I would’ve bought Dead Nation and Castle Crashers if it was 50% off for everybody. Hopefully that trend doesn’t happen for the rest of the sales. Four of those games interest me.

tylerh1701 said:

If the timed exlusivity for Hard Corps Uprising and Beyond Good and Evil HD are the same, than BG&E will be available March 29.

triple_lei said:

March 8th, 1:01 pm

Thanks, Grace!

And yes, I’m still kicking myself for not getting Plus, but I need a bigger hard drive first…

Go_Buddie_Go said:

March 8th, 1:01 pm

For anyone that doesnt know, Hard Corps is coming next week, March 15th.

megamixer said:

March 8th, 1:13 pm

Next year please include PSOne & Minis (and I guess PSP2 games as well) in the Spring Fever sale. GCA had all four catergories represented but Spring Fever does not!

I’m still crossing my fingers for a Phantasy Star Portable 2 sale.. I’m so bummed that I missed the Christmas sale!

jebusid said:

March 8th, 1:28 pm

I still do not understand something Mr. Ro Hernandez, because I do not have any discount on the games that won the vote? Castle Crushers specifically want to buy but the price marked on the store is $ 14.99. Is supposed to have a 50% discount. Would you like to know if I’m wrong?.

thebiglouie said:

March 8th, 1:34 pm

I appreciate the heads-up on the games that will go on sale in the future. I won’t feel dumb about buying a game then seeing it discounted a few days later.

duke301 said:

March 8th, 1:37 pm

The earlier the update comes, the better. My PS3 is going to be busy tonight. I’m jumping on Mortal Kombat and Dead Nation to start off with. Now I’m glad that I didn’t buy Dead Nation when it came out. Thank you Sony, for the updates and the sales.

HNorbert said:

Is there any chance of a discount on Flower?

sNsKid said:

If only I had waiting to buy Tetris.

Just a note for the Sales after Week #1 (discount on PSN Gamers’ Choice Award Winners), the discount will be 50% off the regular price for ALL users. Also, note that the sale offers change out each week. So be sure to check back often to find out which sale titles are offered next…

I am so confuzled by this comment.

Kirkpad said:

March 8th, 2:09 pm

I’ll likely be getting Eat Them, Tetris, and maybe God of War if I have leftover funds. Also, what is the point of PS+ if regular users get a 50% discount in the second week anyways?

Pulseman said:

March 8th, 2:15 pm

Please discount Konami’s Rocket Knight! Awesome game that is way underrated. It came out years ago but was never discounted except at the EU PSN store.

EJStrat said:

March 8th, 2:24 pm

I just really hope the new hard drive I ordered off amazon hurries up and gets here soon, cuz I’m outta room to download new stuff. Once I get that 60gb out and the 500gb in, it’ll be smooth sailin lol

SunSoara said:

March 8th, 2:25 pm

YES! Been waiting for a release date for Moon Diver. Can’t wait!

station3fever said:

March 8th, 2:26 pm

i was really hoping for dead nation to cost about $7.00 but what the heck, i’m tired of playing black ops SO here i go., going to kill me some dead nation zombie butt :)

Esena said:

March 8th, 2:34 pm

Looking forward to nabbing Top Darts with the sale! :)

rjejr said:

March 8th, 2:43 pm

Good news about Eat Them, my son will be very excited.

Question – since Sony seems to change the PS+ program at will, do we still get to keep stuff we pay for at a discount? I don’t want to pay half price for something and then have it taken away if Sony has reneged on that part of the deal as well.

snakeman07 said:

March 8th, 2:54 pm

@ rjejr

From what I know, any discounts you get with PS+ you get to keep whatever it was for. Free games are another story.

Beatz2086 said:

March 8th, 2:54 pm

When will the sale for Tetris start, Anybody know?

wilflare said:

March 8th, 2:54 pm

any idea when we will be getting Beyond Good and Evil HD too?
Please let it be next week! :D for $9.99 too!

Neil said:

March 8th, 3:24 pm

Wait this is unclear. When is Lara Croft going on sale? Today? Because it wasn’t noted in the PS Store update that just went up.

Kirkpad said:

March 8th, 5:13 pm

Guys there is a different PSP and PS3 going to be on sale each week. Next week is likely Eat Them!, followed by Tetris the week after, then Laura Croft the week after that.

DPsx7 said:

March 8th, 6:05 pm

That’s BS. Why isn’t the discount for everyone? PSN+ sucks because you don’t keep your content. Any minor discounts are just to ‘rent’ the game, and when I voted I was promised a 50% discount with no word it was tied to that lame program.

JamisonFitz said:

March 8th, 8:17 pm

So wait, Games are 30% off for regular PSN members, and up to 50% off for PS+… But after one week regular PSN users will get the PS+ price? So it’d be cheaper to grab dead nation next week… ?

yea-7 said:

March 8th, 8:21 pm

sweetness this is awesometastic i cant wait till i get some money and my internet does go out every 5 seconds

ninjabenja said:

I’ve been waiting for a deal on Guardians of Light, neat!

dopekiddej said:

March 9th, 12:45 am

when is psn going to release more ps1 classics like megaman legends?

putty_thing said:

March 9th, 3:49 am

Does this only apply to the US store or will we see these discounts in the UK as well?

BigPoppaB said:

March 9th, 6:57 am


Did you say in the response to question 1 that all of the award winning games will be 50% off next week for ALL users?

So will Castle Crashers/Dead Nation be 50% next week for non-PS Plus members? If so, I’ll buy both of them next week instead of just 1 of them this week.

LlamaD said:

March 9th, 7:26 pm

Just a note for the Sales after Week #1 (discount on PSN Gamers’ Choice Award Winners), the discount will be 50% off the regular price for ALL users.

Does this mean that Dead Nation will be 50% off for ALL user next week?

MercuryPDX said:

March 9th, 11:40 pm

I am KICKING myself. I bought Castle Crashers at full price on Tuesday. :(

That’ll teach me. From now on I will just wait until a sale.

PaulQBall said:

March 10th, 5:21 am

Clarification 30% off this week 50% next week ????? Why not 50% off from the get go ?????? If that’s the case I’ll wait till next week and buy MORE !!!! LMK Thanks

Bretman1975 said:

March 10th, 7:09 am

Hey Geddy, did you check the new release dates? Amazon’s showing December 31st, and Best Buy’s showing September 6th. I’m looking forward to this one, too, and I’m disappointed it’s been pushed so far back.

BMJ2K7 said:

March 10th, 11:45 am

So just to make sure, that this week the gamer choice winners will be 50% off for PS PLUS but next week the winners will be 50% to everyone, so for example next week DEAD NATION will be $7.49 to all users and that price for PS PLUS users this week?

Daveasaraus said:

March 10th, 9:34 pm

Im not sure if this is a great deal but
im interested in the laura croft game

Daveasaraus said:

March 10th, 9:38 pm

OH! by the way has anyone hears anymore about the Sony Ericson play station phone. I’m sure it will have lots of downloadable content offered by play station network and becoming a plus member will then be definitely worth it.

miziike said:

As other people have asked, can someone from Sony respond to the earlier Sony post:

The reason people are confused is that it doesn’t make sense. Why would ANYONE buy any of these games this week for a 30% discount when waiting until next week will get them an extra 20% off? None of these games are new, so whats another week? I suppose it provides some forced one week benefit for PS+ users, but thats about the only reason that I can find for doing the promo this way.

rabidninjamonky said:

March 13th, 10:26 am

does anyone that posts on this blog actually read? the 30% and 50% discounts are just for this week. next week those games are not on sale, but there will be news games on sale each week all spring long, and Those games will be 50% off whether you have ps+ or not.
