  • What is the size of New Little Kings Story? I have to watch out as I had a 16gb and I already been deleting games like uncharted (4gb really ><) need you guys to drop the price on the memory cards or unlock the vita for the other cards.

  • DesertAss2in

    I’m going to need to clear up space on my sd card for all these new games! And I just downloaded Dragon’s Crown! Ahhh! I and I only need Hardcore Risette Fan to platinum Persona 4 Golden!

  • SONY! WTF! I really was waiting for u to lauch a retail copy of New little king story but now ill need to get it digital!

    I HATE DIGITAL! sigh….

    so… it seems ill be getting touch my katamari, Dead or alive + and little king story….. the rest i own on physical copy… like full games should be.. :(

    Now ill need to do a cleanup on my Overpriced Memory card bc it was full already…. sigh….

  • Week Two looks a lot more exciting. Great sale!

  • GuerillahTacTikz

    @9 I’m not sure if it was changed after you posted, but Gravity Rush was listed as free. Additionally, I have gotten Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend (which I already had a physical copy), Jet Set Radio, Retro City Rampage, and a few other smaller named titles for free through PS+.

  • totally getting katamari and muramasa. all cheers to glorious nippon!

  • Hmm several good options here.

    I’ll definitely be picking up New Little Kings Story and Ridge Racer. I’m only including Ridge Racer because the ad hoc trophies can be done without a second player (or so I hear..).

    I’m tempted to pick up Dynasty Warrior Next and Dead or Alive 5 Plus, but it seems those both include ad hoc trophies potentially requiring multiple Vitas to complete, which makes them instantly undesireable games for me.

    Also thinking of picking up Soul Sacrifice. Several others look ok, but I’m hesitant to spend much money on anything because whatever I buy will most likely end up in the Vita IGC in the future anyway.

  • Awesome – that’ll be Silent Hill, Atelier and Ridge at least I think – thanks Sony :)

  • I also just saw that Lumines: Electronic Symphony was on sale for 9.89 atAmazon w/free 2-day shipping if you’re a Prime member. Soooooo many good Vita deals!

  • Is New Little King’s Story worth the $10 price tag (to whoever may own it)?

  • Another great sale for US, while we have our joke of a “summer sale” full of games that are on sale for 10th time or were on IGC already.

    Remember this next time you start QQ about how “superior” our IGC is ;)

  • ^ coming from EU PS+ subscriber.

  • @95 Indeed I have not. I just lost heart in playing it due to the slow down. If it has gotten any better at all I’ll definitely download it again. When I played it anytime you had more than a few minions it would just drag immediately. Not game breaking but completely stole the experience from me. Considering I bought the game day 1 too I was rather sad. Ill have to check it out again.

  • PlatinumAura

    Holy crap. 2 great games Tales of Xillia and Drgaon’s Crown…..and nwo this. Definitely picking up Muramasa and Atelier Totori. Maybe even Ragnorok and Soul Sacrifice. GREAT SALES HERE. Keep it up PS Team!

  • I’ve been wanting to buy Totori, NLKS, Guilty Gear, Ridge Racer, and DOA5+ for a while, and suddenly they’re all on discount?! This is insane. You are evil.

    Oh well. There goes my 50 bucks. *ka-ching*

  • New Little King’s Story, yessss! That’s the price I’ve been waiting for :)

  • @109 It’s funnerish. Essentially Pikmin style gameplay. See enemy launch people into him. There are different jobs for the townspeople so generally when you go somewhere youll take a bunch of different class’s with you to handle any mining/building/fighting that you need to do along the way. At $10 it’s worth the price for a fun time.

    @110 Anytime I’ve went to the EU Boards (which is not many) it’s always when people compare your awesome igc to our terrible one but then see you guys complaining about getting terrible sales while we get (in most cases) really good ones. Or at least confirmed by the “Where is the summer sale? This can’t be it!?!?!” type comments. If only the world worked where we can all be one united family and not just 2nd cousins. I feel for you guys eh, granted I want all ya Vita IGC games. Give em.

  • KnifingGrimace

    Amazing sale! I’ll definitely be picking up Atelier Totori, Dead or Alive 5, and maybe Ragnarok Odyssey. These are too tantalizing.

  • Scaramanga1983

    Time to get a 50 dollar card. I’ve been thinking about picking up Need for Speed for a while, but I was waiting for a sale on Dead or Alive 5 Plus to get them together.

    By the way, is it possible to just unlock the full DoA 5 Plus (I have the demo installed) or will I need to download another 2.5 GB?

  • Are these offers available for non US subscribers?

  • so many games …. so little money …. :(

  • SHERIFFBULL0CK

    @ GStylez1980 Re: New Little King’s Story I think it’s definitely worth $10 although it depends on how much you like that style of game. It’s a bit hard to describe. Close to Pikmin, but also similar to Black & White, Kingdom for Keflings, Viva Pinata… Not a Sim. Not an RPG. Closer to an RTS, but a very lightweight RTS. Recent VITA firmware updates have improved the framerate, which was the major issue when the game launched. I think the file size is around 650MB. It’s one of my favorite games for the VITA at the moment.

  • @ Volgner

    Lol no way man, we in EU have “great summer sale”, remember ? ;)

  • BlueBl1zzard

    You gotta be kidding me, I’m trying to save money Sony, not spend it! I wasn’t expecting muramasa and soul sacrifice to be on sale though, so that’s cool. We need more sales like these! For now I’m looking at Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Touch My Katamari, Muramasa, and Dynasty Warriors. Decisions…..decisions…..

  • Wow, some fantastic deals in there. Makes me wish maybe I wouldn’t have jumped on some Vita sales in the past, especially Ridge Racer. PLEASE say the Ridge Racer DLC will be on sale too, so I can finally play at least some more of the game?? Been waiting for that for like a year now… All of the reviews trashing it for how little of the actual game you get with the core are absolutely right…

    Either way, great job on the sale and for making PSN a great place to buy games!

  • I need to buy Muramasa at that price.

  • muramasa doesn’t even have a 50% discount not even with plus, is that a mistake?

  • This.. is… epic!

    How about an NA dev sale soon too..

    Buying quite a few of these.. Thx PSN!

  • This is awesome deals!!!! I’m going to enjoy this….. Mujajajaja. Moo.

  • archangel9978

    DOA & UMvsC3 for me….already picked up dynasty warriors, SFxT, and silent hill at retail (wish id waited now) may pick up ridge racer also depending on funds….all in all awesome sales for vita…

  • BlueBl1zzard

    Hold up, I just realized…”don’t forget to check back on August 20th for the second week of amazing Japanese PS Vita games on sale.”

    You mean there’s going to be even more?! I don’t think I (or my wallet) can handle all this…

    Oh and some people need to realize it says “up to 50/75% off”

  • TXCScorpion

    Hey guys is Silent Hill worth it? I mean at this price it’s an easy pick but is it fun enough as a dungeon crawler to keep you interested? Played the demo but going alone I got bored.

  • Is Atelier Totori Plus available in the Canadian Store? Every time I go to look, it just says “no content available”. But if it’s not available in Canada, why is it listed in the first place? I think there was something similar with Black Rock Shooter and it’s just not listed at all…

    To sum up my question, will I be able to buy Atelier Totori Plus in Canada during this sale?

  • Soul Sacrifice is a great game there from that list aswell as Gravity Rush. Although if one was to choose only one between the two I’d go for Soul Sacrifice. Already have them both and it is loads more fun. Brings out the bad side of us all!!

    Wish I could take part in this sale but I’m over in EU. There’s no mention of Resistance Burning Skies in that sale. Any chance it could be due to being on PS+ someday soon enough? Perhaps the IGC in November? :D I hope soooooo

  • DesertAss2in

    @132 Zarxce

    If you’re looking at the ps store on your vita, you have to search for atelier totori plus in the search box. It used to be listed just like every other game, so I don’t know why they changed it. I don’t know about black rock shooter though. Hope that helps.

  • Looks like I’ll have to say goodbye to quite a few of the PSP games I have downloaded because this sale is going to claim most (if not all) of my 16 gig card.

  • BlueBl1zzard

    @Zarxce Someone posted that same problem on the PS Blogcast article page. It’s not just the Canadian vita store, but here on the US store as well. You should just be able to buy the game off of the web PS store, and then go to your vita’s download list and download it from there.

  • AizawaYuuichi

    I’ve already got all of these that I want. Bought them all day one to support the system and the publishers/developers. So sadly, nothing for me.

    But it’s doubly disheartening to see so many people saying “these are the prices I was waiting for!” as if none of these games were worth full price. You people are the reason the Vita is failing and there are so few games coming out. You demand AAA games, then when they just happen to release digital-only, you ignore them. Or you just flat out don’t buy them period, until they’re at bargain bin prices. Makes me sick.

  • WELP. Time to get ps plus.

  • TheDeadTexan

    Great sale prices. Too bad I can’t say the same for the memory card prices.

    4gb is suffering.

  • CatatonicAlex

    But I payed full price for Muramasa and Soul Sacrifice. :(
    Glad to see NLKS finally got a price drop. It’s been $39.99 for ages.
    It’s also odd that monkey ball cost more with a discount than the hard copy.

  • I’ve been wanting to pick up some of those fighting games and this looks like the perfect time to get DOA5 and UMvC3. Also $3.75 for Katamari is too good to pass up.

  • Amazing sale guys, keep up the great work! This is how you make some money! Buying $100 in PSN cards for this.

  • Louis_in_82

    I just bought MLB the show 13 for 17$ and even though im not a baseball fan, i cannot put that game down. And now, 17$ soul sacrifice ?! + Metal gear HD + muramasa on sale … hell ill even pick up silent hill for 8$. PS Vita was worth every penny i spent on it.

  • whoa! 10 bucks for doa5 and umvc3? which one should i get?

  • Nice sale Sony. More of this in the future? :) Already own most of these games but will pick up New Little Kings Story and Silent Hill (just because it’s cheap).

  • chrisgomez3030

    hope i get the money in time for metal gear solid HD.

  • hey guys, do you recommend to buy MGS HD or should i wait for IGC??? thanks !!!

  • Some really tempting deals there, but I’m not sure if I’m going to bite on any.

  • Wow this is amazing. Now if only I had a larger than 32gb memory card or even the option to have more than 100 apps on my vita system it would be awesome. I mean really y’all fixed the pages to hold more icons per page but not the max number of icons in we can have which was the main problem to begin with. Just saying. Keep it coming with the game releases though y’all rock.
