All I can say is thank goodness the PS4 will be out soon. With all these free games, plus all the great deals I’ve gotten these past 2 years, I have both my 250GB and my 500GB PS3’s filled up. I’m swamped with games I’ve been meaning to play for months. Come this fall I’ll finally have an excuse to pawn all those unplayed games off on my son to finish while I hog the new gen.

Cancerebro said:

April 30th, 2:01 am

What a sale! Too bad I already have most of them. But I’ll be getting Festival of Blood and Portable Ops.

bigdaddy_Rich said:

April 30th, 2:27 am

Another week of great sales and great games. What I like about PS+ is that it gives me a chance to get the games that I missed out on before at a discounted price and sometimes even for free.

michaelhite said:

@350 Why don’t you replace your hard drive with a 1TB hard drive? I got one for $83 bucks free shipping on Amazon. You can back up your current system to an external FAT32 formatted drive, put the 1TB in there and do a restore. I did that and now I have gobs of space. The physical removal and placement of the hard drives is very simple and detailed in Youtube videos.

I hope the PS4 will have support to play games off of externally-connected hard drives or at the very least, hope it comes with a 1TB drive. The newer games are 10-13GB downloads. I can only imagine the PS4 AAA games will be 25-50GB. A PS4 with a 120GB hdd wouldn’t be of any use especially with the push for digital vice physical discs.

I was hoping for the new DMC & PSAS DLC to be on sale

lisatsunami said:

April 30th, 2:58 am

Hey, if anybody is up reading still, I just saw the tweet that Soul Sacrifice will have all the pre-order bonuses when the store updates! Tweet was 7 hours ago but I just read it now.

SAIGA_1 said:

April 30th, 3:01 am

do you still get the vita version free if you buy ps3 version of playstation allstars?

OmegaSpear said:

April 30th, 3:06 am

Nice sales

lisatsunami said:

April 30th, 3:11 am

Oops, just caught up in reading and saw one other person already announced the tweet about Soul Sacrifice. I hope those bonuses help because I am so stuck trying to kill the harpy in the Avalon pacts. Too hard because the partner, Utheena? sucks compared to Sortiara.

TheExiled12894 said:

April 30th, 4:19 am

why has there been no mention of Soul Sacrifice? it only says that you get the pre-order bonuses on Twitter. shouldn’t there be an article for the biggest Vita release in the last few months?

afigueroa said:

April 30th, 5:25 am

Playstation twitter account:
“Soul Sacrifice news: Pick it up on PSN starting Tuesday to get the Japanese voice over pack, 2 costumes & 3 magic items. Limited time only!”

Quuids said:

April 30th, 6:19 am

I’ve searches through the comments and didn’t see this question. If I buy sly cooper and playstation all stars on my ps3 do I get the vita versions for free?

Thanks for the help and sorry if this question was asked a lot!

XeahuleXolic said:

April 30th, 6:25 am

Epic!!!! It’s time I get myself some new Metal Gear Games!! when is the new DLC coming out for playstation allstars battle royale, I love that game!!

GintokiSsan said:

April 30th, 7:08 am

LITTLE BIG PLANET VITA for me today..PLaystation AllStars is on the way for me too

Hello_Im_Julio said:

April 30th, 7:23 am

Well its April 30, 2013 and Im not seeing the new games and offers on the vita. When will it be available.

AlwaysTruTat2 said:

April 30th, 7:27 am

AWSOME!! but im like the 3rd or 4th to ask please..if we buy sly cooper & battle allstars for ps3 do we still get the vita version for free? please inquiring minds with money in hand want to know?

GintokiSsan said:

April 30th, 7:38 am

@365 yes you do cuz i just bought allstars for ps3 and youll get the ps vita versions for sure the same for sly cooper..crossbuys you get both versions

TwinDad said:

April 30th, 7:54 am

YOu only get the cross-buy, or the vita version for free, if you purchase the PS3 version of a cross-buy enable game. If you buy the Vita version you will only get the Vita version.

TarheelBlueblood said:

April 30th, 8:33 am

Cheesus H Chrust on a stick. After all the negative consumer feedback last week and previous weeks and this takes all those compaints…and completely validates them. I mean it is a pretty solid sale but that’s the game for this update? I really hope the PS3 players starting getting some more love soon because as much as I like the idea of PS Plus, its been very hard to justify even its meager cost lately and I’m sorry but we can’t all afford to have a Vita in addition to a console system. I would wager that PS3 consoles FAAAAR exceed the number of Vita owners in the US.

hellsflamecharge said:

April 30th, 8:50 am

A lot of these were great titles, back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

Pretty much sums up what playstation has become. We were great, remember?

Lack luster exclusives, terrible xbox ports, with enough load time to cook a egg.

If this selection of games represents some of the best PlayStation now has to offer (I’m assuming off of some responses), I know which system I’ll be going with next gen.

It’s been a long run, shoot, the first console I bought with my own money was the PS1. Sadly, times change and belts pass.

NOiSEA said:

April 30th, 9:05 am

Just going to be honest here. I don’t think these sales are really that great. These are all games that most people already own if they are fans of the series. Most of them have been on sale for less in the past. Sometimes a LOT less, for example lbp karting was 10usd only a couple months ago and now its on “sale” for double that price. Im not saying that the price needs to always be so low but I’m not going to pretend like this sale is anything great either. Its decent and thats it.

Zombie Tycoon was not a very good game. I hope the sequel is completely different.

ScorchedRusalka said:

April 30th, 9:13 am

Hi Morgan!… thank you very much for all the effort the team have in bringing us these awesome games!!!… This is the best month for plus since the last E3 month :P.

Now that I have my PS VITA is a must buy the Metal Gear Collection HD and of course the incoming Soul Sacrifice new IP. I hope Soul Sacrifice increase the sales of VITA since is the best demo I played in a looooong time.

TwinDad said:

April 30th, 9:54 am


The store updates at random times during the day today. There is not a set time. Keep an eye on the blog, you will see a post that says “PlayStation Store update” that is you clue that the store has been updated.

April 30th, 9:54 am

#337 @fuzzfox128 if you downloaded the free version for the IGC you can not buy it later to keep it. I’m not sure why this is the case because I know that a lot of the games I have in the IGC I would love to be able to purchase. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

schreekuline said:

April 30th, 9:58 am

Ugh, my wallet!

TerraAshura said:

April 30th, 11:25 am

Oh mah gad. Those are some insane sales. I might just have to drop a little on the Devil May Cry HD Collection and the MGS one is tempting so I can have a digital copy.

Nickjayz said:

April 30th, 11:41 am

I am most interested in finding out what game we’ll be getting in May. Anyone have an idea on when we’ll find that out?

klassymike said:

April 30th, 11:47 am

According to some earlier posts, Gamestop has ads in their stores saying Sleeping Dogs and Pinball Arcade is coming to the IGC. I Dunno.

klassymike said:

April 30th, 12:22 pm

Morgan also said in an earlier post that we find out May’s monthly outlook next Monday.

hjason1 said:

April 30th, 1:03 pm

I find it funny and not the good funny.. That eu is getting hitman absolution for free on ps plus..
And we get all kiddie games for free… I think we need to hire whoever is running the eu game selection and get rid of the one who is doing it here…

I think it is unfair that eu gets all of the good games and we rarely get a good game just kiddie games…

QueenB82 said:

April 30th, 1:32 pm

Oh hellz yeah, now that’s an awesome sale! No lie, I was actually contemplating on getting DMC HD collection today off amazon! So glad I held up, lol. Plus, that MGS sale looks tight, too; I’ve been meaning to get the first one and portable ops for a while, so I’m definitely jumping all over this. :)

Geez Sony, you’re just gonna push me past my procrastination in changing my hdd aren’t you? Lol

etur0 said:

April 30th, 1:40 pm

you guys need to make mgs1 playable on the vita NOW

tipper45 said:

April 30th, 1:46 pm

Is this sale for the uk to?

MerricK1313 said:

April 30th, 1:52 pm

This is ridiculous… I just paid full price for PS All Stars cause I figured it will never be on plus and there you go! 2 weeks later it is half off…. This just sux.

MerricK1313 said:

April 30th, 2:22 pm

The is lame… Called support and they will only credit you if you buy something with in 7 days! From now on I will buy NOTHING until it is on sale for plus.

klassymike said:

April 30th, 2:57 pm

The same thing happened to me before. We have to just learn to deal with it. I look at it this way, we get enough free games and deep discounts to make up for the occasional backlash from buying something, just for it to go on sale or even free shortly thereafter.

djscimontemplar said:

April 30th, 3:55 pm

Yet another terrible week for the IGC. Are we ever going to get something decent? Maybe some of the EU offers?

HellSnap said:

April 30th, 5:22 pm

That’s not the Dante that appears on the game… where’s the DMC’s discount???

RayzorGunner7 said:

April 30th, 5:28 pm

Anybody know who I can talk to so someone can update Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops so it is available to play on the Vita in North America? I never had a PSP and would actually buy the game if it was available for it. So far it seems Europe can play the game on the Vita while North America can’t. What’s up with that Sony?

MrGreenTree420 said:

April 30th, 6:18 pm

I bought Twisted Metal : Head On thinking i could play it on my PS Vita but now I know i can’t, is there anyway to get a refund on something purchashed?

Archaga said:

April 30th, 7:26 pm

DOWNLOAD ALL THE MGS GAMES! Seriously though, having all these MGS games on sales makes up for the total junk the Vita has had this Spring Sale. Kinda wish Peace Walker was the remastered version the PS3 got but I can settle for the regular version. WOOT, long distance high fives all around.

Archaga said:

April 30th, 8:05 pm

>.>, MGS1 and MGS: Portable Ops/+ are both on sale and neither can be bought on Vita store. Wow, bravo guys…

AlwaysTruTat2 said:

May 1st, 4:58 am

yea tho most would say at first glance that this is an awsome sale..when you really think about it..and in comparison to the love the eu has gotten this year and the total garbage..a free indy title here and there for al of us in the US…every one of these sale titles should be free to us..espially when eu is getting games 5months out for free and we are paying for games some 15yrs old..come on sony wtf im really regreating my playstation plus purchase..and i honestly could not recommend it to anyone..were that was not the case at one time..

bosskillerz87 said:

May 1st, 5:49 am

will i still be able to play the discounted games if my plus expires?

AlwaysTruTat2 said:

May 1st, 6:01 am

yes the games you buy at a discount will be playable..but not the ps+ free games.

bosskillerz87 said:

May 1st, 6:04 am

wow, great.. thanks.. then i have no reason not to buy those discounted games…

DonkeyKongKilla said:

May 1st, 10:29 am

No Words, I hope May is better. Try to get anyone of the GTA’s on it, it’d be nice for the long wait of GTAV. Til Next time.

DonkeyKongKilla said:

May 1st, 10:30 am

Were missing the new month layout…

DonkeyKongKilla said:

May 1st, 10:33 am

Oh on another note. How on earth is Infamous valued higher than Infamous 2? I thought the newer versions are suppose to be higher valued.

Ventus_Fury said:

May 1st, 12:19 pm

I Knew that there wouldn’t be a new month thing yet. I’m waiting til next week as well as for my Blade Wolf DLC for MGR:R.

Still a little hurt this didn’t include any DLC for any games.
