PS Vita Summer Select: Four New Indies Get PS Plus Discounts

Summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to. To keep your summer fun going, we’ve selected four games launching over the next four weeks to be part of PS Vita Summer Select, our new PlayStation Store event. PS Plus members will receive a 20% discount on each game during its launch week, and — best of all — all four games are Cross-Buy for PS Vita and PS3.

Over the next four weeks, we’re shining the spotlight on some great independent developers by bringing you a new indie title each week. Check out some of the most unique gaming experiences coming to PS Vita, including Derek Yu’s beloved Spelunky, and two-button fighter Divekick. The first game drops tomorrow, so prepare to spend some serious time with your PS Vita!

No need to worry if you don’t have a PS Vita because all four PS Vita Summer Select titles are Cross-Buy for PS Vita and PS3! PS Plus members can take advantage of the launch week discounts on both the PS Vita and PS3 versions of each game.

  • Go PS VITA!!!

  • Spelunky!

  • Dragon Fantasy…maybe.

  • Well, you got me, I’ll be getting Spelunky and Dragon Fantasy book II, been waiting for those for quite a while.

  • TXCScorpion

    Was totally buying the first three already. Might pick up DF2 as well. Porcrastinated and didn’t get the first one when the release discount was out. Also Spelunky next week woooo! Is it Tuesday yet by the way? Wheres my Divekick arggggg! Time, our greatest adversary.

  • Finally, a release date for Spelunky! My Vita is ready.

  • Will probably get most of these.. Which ones have platinums.. besides DF B2.

    And should I play the first Dragon Fantasy to fully enjoy the 2nd?

    • Bryan Sawler

      While Dragon Fantasy Book II definitely makes back references to Book I, we realize a lot of people who play it won’t have played the first, and made sure we didn’t “require” that to follow the story.

  • Some nice releases but when is Lone Survivor and Bit trip Runner 2 releasing for the psvita?

  • I love my vita. I’m most excited about the ps4 so any game I want through my vita… I don’t know anything about dragon fantasy, but I’ll buy the rest for sure.

    • Bryan Sawler

      Dragon Fantasy Book II is a 16-bit-style JRPG in the style of a Chrono Trigger or similar game – no random battles, enemies are wandering around the world, etc.

  • Oh and Terraria aswell!? WHEN?

  • Spelunky! Finally now i know i have to buy a psn card lol

  • The_Cowboy_Poet

    Awesome! I’m looking forward to Dragon Fantasy II on the Vita.
    Speaking of indie Vita games, any word on when we can expect to play Proteus?

  • Since you are senior Manager of digital distribution i have a question for you , why we are not being able to pre order first party games on psn? im not interested in none of these games but is very good to see sony pushing indie game on the system but for the love of god announce SCE plans for psvita in 2014 tomorrow, it seems to me that SCEE are the ones driving the vita forward, SCEA needs to step up.

  • Finally, I feel as though I’ve been waiting for Spelunky on Vita for ever. Also DiveKick.

  • I’ve been looking forwards to Dragon Fantasy: Book II.

  • hahaha.. stupid! they giving a discount or maybe a gimick just you guys to entertain and give birth to your ps vita that has already dead! ps vita left behind compare to others they have a lot list of games coming up,but ps vita? hmpp ps4= ps vita for remote play? lolz.. they dont even work on ps3 what more in ps4 that has a higher specs than ps3..

  • Lots of good games “kicking” around in this post.

  • Spelunky is a big maybe for me. Was going to pick it up on my PC… but it might be a perfect portable game. Hmm.

  • Stranger_Eddie

    Spelunky = I check out Steam value is 1,00 buck more expensive as PS Vita version! Amazing! Sony make this action for ever game ported! = COMPETITIVE PRICE! The Vita owners will be proud!

    \o/

  • Spelunky and Dragon Fantasy II for me! Show that Vita some love!

  • BlueBl1zzard

    Kickbeat, Kickbeat, Kickbeat!

  • Aww yea, finally we get Spelunky!

  • Xcaligamer1

    i so want kichbeat

  • Holy crap Spelunky Spelunky Spelunky! Yes! Finally!

  • k0wb0y-b33b0p

    SPELUNKY… FINALLY!

    Also gotta get Divekick & Dragon Fantasy!

    Great week for the Vita. Now if they’ll just release bigger affordable memory cards. My 32g card is full. Time to delete stuff. C’mon Sony this is ridiculous, release larger cards. You must not want people to buy more digital games for the system.

  • whatisdelicious

    YEAHYEAHYEAH

  • have no interest in any of them aside from Dragon Fantasy Book II. I hope it is much better than book 1 though. The terrible hit rate and random encounters really dragged that game down. i heard Book II has visible enemies, so its already off to a better start.

    • Bryan Sawler

      Dragon Fantasy Book II improves on the first in almost every way possible :)
      No random battles for one! The entire battle system is a LOT more engaging (and yes, the enemies are roaming the world, you’re free to run past them…if you can) and generally just mashing through the “Fight” button endlessly will end up with you hopelessly outnumbered and often dead.

  • Just looked up Kickbeat.. definitely getting that. My Vita wants a rhythm game (Although Cytus is cool… just.. expensive and already have it on my Phone)

  • Sonicfan11589

    If u can answer since u are work for the digital distribution.
    I have some Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate related questions:
    -Will it have a Day 1 pre-order on PSN?
    -Will it have a PS Plus discount?
    -Will it have the pre-order costumes Gamesop is offering with the retail version?

    Please answer if u can.

  • Spelunky and Dragon Fantasy: Book II for me. Always nice to have discounts on things I was already buying. :3

    @27: They fixed the hit rate for Book I in a patch. Among other things, like adding a run button.

  • BrianMcGuinness

    Can we at least all give a round of applause to @16 HanGlacy for even knowing how to turn a computer on? We’re all proud of you, buddy. Keep it up.

  • @16: The only thing dead is the English language. You just murdered it.

  • @16:
    1. Know English
    2. Know what you’re talking about.
    3. About 7 or so games coming out in September alone for the Vita.

  • TXCScorpion

    @31,32

    Was far too lazy to do anything myself. Glad you guys took care of it.

  • wally_mammoth

    @1 HanGlacy: I don’t normally make fun of people for having poor English skills. But since you are bashing the ps vita…I think I will make an exception. Seriously what were you trying to say? Maybe next time just take it one word at a time and check with your Derp to English translation guide to make sure each word is chosen with precision to accomplish the task of communicating your ideas.

  • helbertpina

    Way to go! Playing indies on the Vita is just perfect, keep them coming!

  • T3DV0L70L1N4

    I love indie games on Vita, and I love launch week discounts. And I also love comments like 31, 32, 34, and 35.

  • martinirage1

    PS VITA + Indies = Ultra Combo!

  • Psvita + price drop + AAA titles = killer combo

  • BlueBl1zzard

    @Zionine DJ Max Technika Tune is another good rhythm on vita. It’s also touchscreen based like Cytus. However, it’s crazy expensive at $44.99 (I’m surprised it’s never been on sale to this day).

  • BlueBl1zzard

    PS Vita + larger capacity memory cards + memory card price drops = Insta-kill combo!

  • #1. Spelunky on my birthday? HELL YEAH.
    #2. Where is Luftrausers? :(

  • LeFabuleuxDeux

    Cross-buy is amazing! Thanks for this. Can’t wait for Divekick and Spelunky.

  • DecadanceFantasy

    Divekick and Kickbeat titles keep confusing me. I think the one that looks fun to me so far is Kickbeat. Or was it Divekick? We shall see.

  • Finally some real Vita love!

    Spelunky and KickBeat here I come!!!

  • Looking forward to Kickbeat and I hope Dragon Fantasy: Book II is better than Book 1 (which was kinda meh).

    Also where is Terraria? And any chance we can get Minecraft ported to PS systems?

    • Bryan Sawler

      I can say (with some amount of bias I suppose) that Dragon Fantasy Book II is in every way better than Book I. The story is more interesting and the combat is a LOT more engaging.

  • I was going to buy DiveKick anyway and now I get it for $8 and it’s Cross Buy! This is too good, plus the PS Vita sale with DOA 5, Marvel vs Capcom 3, and Street Fighter x Tekken. This is a great time to own a Vita.

  • Dionysus-Jones

    @16: Crack for breakfast?

  • Dragon Fantasy for sure. Book 1 was a lot of fun. I might get the others, too.

  • Dragon Fantasy: Book II and Spelunky for me! Great Discounts!
