I dropped $150 on Plus subs last night. Not even worried about getting that amount of value out of it.

josephdix said:

March 4th, 8:08 am

These sales are awesome. I’ve been harassing my friends to all get Patapon, and now they have no excuse.
Favorite PS Vita game so far? That’s tough, but I loved Mutant Blobs Attack and Sound Shapes a lot. Thanks for the great support for Vita!

This is awesome, love to see it. I missed the last sale for Knytt Underground, I won’t be making the same mistake again.

Sonic&All Stars Racing Transformed, Gravity Rush, Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, uncharted golden abyss, Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD.

remanutd5 said:

March 4th, 8:14 am

it would be awesome to see a proper Motorstorm game on the little system, a new Resistance developed by Insomniac or Sony Bend, MediEvil? Syphon Filter? Heavenly Sword? God of War? inFAMOUS? Gran Turismo?

Lasdrub said:

March 4th, 8:15 am

@ remautd5 LBP is a good call. I can only imagine how awesome Sly Cooper looks on the Vita.

Camjo-Z said:

Patchwork Heroes free? Titori for PlayStation All-Stars CONFIRMED!

ZaGe-zAiKaNo said:

March 4th, 8:22 am

Free PSP games, not bad. Might have to check them out one by one cause of my 16GB is reaching it’s limit. Thanks, guys.

I have SfxTk, UMVC3 & Knytt Underground already. So, since i love Lord of the rings & with the comical theme LEGO gives it, i’l be picking that one up.

Favorite game so far? Can’t say x.x i like playing all types of genres.

Gorvi said:

March 4th, 8:24 am

Oh, and my favorite Vita game? Probably Gravity Rush or LIttleBigPlanet, I can’t decide. Gravity Rush has an edge since it’s a great new IP, something we don’t see too often, but LBP is probably the best game in the entire series, which is saying a lot.

great! Love to see this type of stuff!

TwinDad said:

March 4th, 8:54 am

You picked some great games for the giveaway. I have most of them, but I welcome those that don’t Patchwork heroes was a title that didn’t get the attention when it released.

    Patchwork Heroes is definitely a cult favorite. Wanted to give it the attention it deserves.

TwinDad said:

This is what PS+ is all about. Good job!!

peruhandcrafts said:

March 4th, 9:30 am

Sorry for the noob question, but what does the phrase “(with trial)” means? Located next to Sine Mora btw.

boomstickbhg said:

March 4th, 9:31 am

Wow, how did you manage to have Vita game sales two week in a row with different games and still manage to leave out the majority of the good ones, despite the fact that there are so few Vita games.

Good job giving us sales on the dregs as usual.

FunkyTable said:

March 4th, 9:47 am

Will there be a Week 3 for this event? I sure hope so.

I want to see Persona 4 Golden on Sale.

tetsmandc said:

March 4th, 9:53 am

Hey, this time the sale looks great! Cool!

idiealot said:

March 4th, 9:54 am

Thanks for the free games everybody! If the SfxT DLC carries over to the PS3 version ill be buying SfxT!!

UnrealButcher said:

March 4th, 9:55 am

Cool, love Wild Arms, and was thinking about checking out Patapon.

Darn, I just picked up Sine Mora yesterday with the $10 I got from Sony, since it’s supposed to expire on the 5th. I didn’t want to chance it expiring before the Anniversary sales games changed. Can’t complain about free though.

I’ll be downloading all the free games for sure. I’m sure each game will be liked by at least one of my kids if I don’t care for it.

Thanks Sony.

March 4th, 9:56 am

@#$$% U ALL! Now i need a freaking 32 gigs memory stick! >_<
My 16 gigs its already full! Sony PLS FTLOG pls lower the price of those MS! 59.99 for my 16 GB was already too much! :(

Apart of that im buying a couple of titles from here :) and btw Thanks for Supporting early adopters of the vita! This is much appreciated :)

Gorvi said:

March 4th, 9:57 am

@boomstickbhg Great job troling there. Not all of those are winners, there’s a few turds for sure, but a few of those are awesome games. Knytt Underground, Dokuro, Sine Mora, even the Dynasty Warriors game is good.

NickMulder said:

March 4th, 9:58 am

My favorite Vita game is still Uncharted: Golden Abyss :) more Uncharted for the Vita please :)

dodgedoors said:

March 4th, 10:04 am

64 gig or higher cards please, I’m dying over here. All these sales and I’m leaving so many off my vita until I can Clear out space.

AfroGamerNinja said:

How can I enjoy it if my Vita’s Ad Hoc is busted?

What a surprise, Negative Nancy is being negative again.

March 4th, 10:08 am

The sales promotion for PLayStation Plus runs through the 4th of March, yet the store is inaccessible. Please add another day, to cover the scheduled maintenance and the customers who can’t purchase the product. I planned on buying this today before the Tuesday store update. This would be false advertising.

Cool deals, I’m excited to get some of these games. Unbelievably cool of Sony to do these great sales the same month they’ll give us $10 back for spending $50. A lot of companies would do those in seperate months.

My favorite Vita game is Uncharted Golden Abyss followed by Rayman!

Hopefully the store goes up soon, I didn’t low about some of last weeks’ sales, want to get in on those!

Hestar69 said:

March 4th, 10:44 am

Gravity rushers all the way!!!… P.S. Sony I’ve been a loyal fan since my white ps1,yet I didn’t get 10.00 that you gave everyone..Sad panda is sad :(

Elvick_ said:

March 4th, 10:57 am

I already own Wild Arms. Speaking of, add the PS2 games to PSN please~ It’s one of the few I’ll buy just ’cause I want to support the series. Where’s mah Wild Arms 6? EH?! ;_; All the other free stuff is great though. Since if I have them (Patapon) I have it on UMD. Nice to have a digital alternative for free~

Kchow23 said:

March 4th, 10:57 am

I am hopeful that Persona 4 will be on sale, but I am very glad to get Patapon for free! :)

Combo_VS_Capcom said:

March 4th, 11:03 am

Can you get the free Vita stuff from a PS3 or PC? My Vita’s being repaired at the moment D:

Rainwater said:

March 4th, 11:04 am

Favorite Vita game? Easy, Persona 4 The Golden, best game of 2012.

    I spent 100+ hours on that game. Definitely loved it.

What an incredible sale line up, guys! Thank you, and GREAT job!!

Inuboykendo1000 said:

March 4th, 11:05 am

So wait… you’re telling me you’re giving away a free PSOne game but only on the Vita PlayStation Store, meaning I can’t purchase it from my PS3 and play it. Wow, way to rip me off Sony. I didn’t even know PSN was smart enough to tell the difference between the Vita, PS3, and Web PS Stores. I’m sort of upset now. I wanna play Wild Arms too.

BlueBl1zzard said:

March 4th, 11:05 am

Whaaaa?! Week 2? I didn’t see that coming, you have my thanks! And with that spend $50 get $10 back…wow

Now what to buy? Decisions….decisions….

BlueBl1zzard said:

March 4th, 11:07 am

@ Inuboykendo1000 I don’t think there’s a distinction between the two. Try downloading it from the web PS store, and then go to your PS3 download list and see if it shows up there

ROADKILL_101 said:

March 4th, 11:07 am

AND Vita ROCKS!!! I love this thing STILL, even after over a year of owning the portable gaming device. Very excited for the future of, Vita!!

Inuboykendo1000 said:

March 4th, 11:07 am

@Combo_VS_Capcom They said exclusively through Vita store. I hope we can do it from a PS3 or PC, I wanna play Wild Arms for the first time and don’t own or have any intention on owning a Vita. To me a Vita doesn’t suit my needs, but the PS3 is perfect. :( Give me Wild Arms too.

Inuboykendo1000 said:

March 4th, 11:10 am

@BlueBl1zzard That’s what I thought, I hope I’m wrong. I’ll download from the web store, if it’s possible, if not I’d say what…? Free game equals free. Doesn’t matter on what device you get it from, at least that’s the mentality most companies have about free stuff. Aside from EA of course, free to them means cash.

I just bought Dokuro for $19.99 and now it’s $6.99

akibake said:

March 4th, 11:20 am

Between all the games I purchased during the last year and the games I’ve gotten through Plus, I have run out of space on my 32gb card. The price for these cards is ridiculous, but I would buy a 64gb card in a heartbeat if it was released. I love having a full digital library onboard the Vita, but I’ve reached the limit. I might be able to squeeze some of these free PSP games on, but there’s no way I can fit COD, Most Wanted, and Odd World on there, not to mention Killzone. Sure, I can get another card, but that defeats the point. If I want to swap cards, I can just buy the physical copies. No, the thrill of having everything at the ready is part of the motivation in buying games. It’s kind of equivalent to lining up all your games on a shelf.
