For those who want Ni no kuni and are hesitant to DL a big file.

It’s been a long time since I saw it for more than 20 new, let alone used in stores so that’s always an option (bought a few copies for friends last month)

Otherwise it’s a great price (PSN)

dodgedoors said:

December 2nd, 9:58 am

I’ll pick up Ni No Kuni and Terraria and I am going to laugh so hard when they come to the IGC next month, because we all know that is gonna happen right?

djsaiyan said:

December 2nd, 9:59 am


I’m thinking it’s going to be Remember Me next month. It’s been on sale a bunch, and Europe already got it, so it seems like a prime candidate.

Mando44646 said:

December 2nd, 10:09 am

definitely rebuying Ni No Kuni to finish it and Defiance for 2 bucks is an easy yes for me.

When can we expect new PS4 PS+ additions? I thought we were getting new ones this month, yet nothing has been announced.

And like I said earlier, please offer some Vita discounts too!

ThaYardieBoy said:

December 2nd, 10:09 am

I was just about to buy Ni No Kuni for retail too.

boomstickbhg said:

December 2nd, 10:14 am

Thank you Mr. Haro for your reply regarding this weekends issues.

berlaitada said:

December 2nd, 10:17 am

@103 it’d be great if they gaves a little something extra for the PSN ****storm of the past days, TLoU would be sweeeeeeeet, but Highly unlikely, probably Remember Me yeah, but for some reason I have a feeling it might be Dead Space 3, Metro Last Light or Metal Gear Rising.

lodgedrocket said:

December 2nd, 10:20 am

Have to say, SONY has been kicking butt all year long. Got Plus for 29.99 enjoyed Galaga, Star Wars Pinball, and now Binary Domain.

I do have a question about Defiance, does it require a subscription to play online? (new to MMO type games)

Thanks in advance, because $2.50 sounds like an amazing deal!

berlaitada said:

December 2nd, 10:25 am

@108 No monthly fee, I’m also getting it, no twofiddy for the loch ness monster this month.

CrusaderForever said:

December 2nd, 10:25 am


Thanks for the info, it’s a no brainer now. I will be picking FFXIVRR up on Tuesday for sure!

xClayMeow said:

If only the Vita version of Terraria was released already….

BeyondForgotten said:

December 2nd, 10:34 am

Planning on getting a PS4 in a couple months, im trying not to buy any more PS3 games so i can work on the ones i have to 100% but you guys keep having these amazing discounts…. damn you! LOL

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

December 2nd, 10:35 am

Thanks for Grid 2. Looking forward to more sales. :)

For those who enjoy what they get from PS Plus, the Dell store is selling 1 year cards for $30.

Well, I guess you could pay $30 and still hate it if you really wanted to. LMAO.

what is this months ps4 game?
sorry, it all looks good for the ps3 etc but you guys did promise a ps4 game a month on psn+

billgoodyear said:

December 2nd, 10:42 am

So getting Ni no Kuni! Looks like a great game :)

Crusher201 said:

December 2nd, 10:44 am

Isn’t the Regular Price column in the Holiday Sale Week 1 table actually PSN sale price?

DragonusFirus said:

December 2nd, 10:45 am

So, I see a lot of comments about the lack of PS4 games in the PS+ this month. Are you guys serious?! How many PS4 games are out there? Its been less than a month since PS4 is out and you want the games “free”? Really? Why even sell them then, just make the games and give it to all you guys; let the developers go to hell, eh?

I wish people be more reasonable about what they ask – complaining about PS4 games (or the lack thereof) is lame. Someone did mention the PSN issue during the black friday “sale” – now that is a good (reasonable) complaint. It sucked bigtime and there was hardly an apology anywhere.

Norouu said:

December 2nd, 10:46 am

Hi, I have a EU account for the PC version of FFXIV:ARR. Can I use the US PSN version of FFXIV:ARR to play on the PS3 with my character on the EU (Lich) server? The obvious answer would be no, but I’d like to ask anyway, as I can’t find any confirmation elsewhere. Thank you.

djsaiyan said:

December 2nd, 10:47 am


To be fair, Sony did say that PS+ would feature a PS4 game per month. Though I believe that was before Driveclub got pushed back and Contrast took its spot (which makes me think it was initially lined up for Plus this month instead).

Hayterfan said:

December 2nd, 10:48 am

So a sale for each week of December and I assume the first week of January. Will say im very tempted to get Defiance, Ni No Kuni (hell I already own the disc version) and Rocksmith. Also isnt there supposed to be a PS4 game in the IGC for this month? granted id be ok with if we got some PS4 demos instead

JPG2105 said:

December 2nd, 10:48 am

How do I get my $10 back from the extend your PS plus membership promotion? The email said I would get it by Nov. 8 and I never got it. The purchase was made from the sen wallet and before the given deadline.

juuichi-11 said:

December 2nd, 10:52 am

Vita owners are always underrated =\
Any chance of Dragons Crown, Muramasa, Dead or Alive on IGC? Or, at least, a considerable discount?

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

December 2nd, 10:52 am

Yeah I think everyone was caught off guard by the very late announcement that Driveclub would be delayed. Sony didn’t have anything lined up to replace it. Contrast being meant for this month is as good a theory as any I’ve read.

You guys are still probably not getting anything else for PS4 till January.

MrGReaperAlso said:

December 2nd, 10:54 am

@116 Psn+ is a service we pay for, we call the game “free” but in actuality we are paying for it all be it a VERY small amount, the developers of what ever game is added would get compensated, none of us expect any A+ ps4 titles for free for a year or so, they will most likely be indie games (which can still be good) I was expecting trine 2 to be the “free” one this month, its cheap, its been out for a long time and its indie.

the fact that on only the second month in to the release of the ps4 (calander months) sony have gone back on thier promise of a ps4 game each month does not give a warm fuzzy feeling, add to that there is no ps4 games on sale either, whats the point of getting ps3 games when you have a ps4? seems a bit of a waste of money to me (though it will appeal to those not ps4`d ofcourse and i dont mean to say thier shouldnt be any ps3 deals…just it should be balanced, were all paying the same amount for psn+ after all

We need and we want more VITA

TxTechAirRaid said:

December 2nd, 11:12 am

Hmm I guess all the little kids on these comments don’t have a PS4 yet.. since no one is complaining about the LACK of PS4 Games….. really irks me.

Hayterfan said:

December 2nd, 11:12 am

Also any word on when Pulse Elite Support will come to PS4?

TxTechAirRaid said:

December 2nd, 11:14 am

And us grown people are actually PAYING for PS+..

viceforce said:

December 2nd, 11:14 am

Those are some good sales. Already picked up a physical copy at Ni No Kuni and got my Maity at NYCC. Even though I have Borderlands 2 I wish it was the GOTM (Game of the Month) Borderlands 2 is miles away better then Grid 2. Studying how last month plus stuff went down here’s my prediction.

Week 1 Grid 2
Week 2 Dyad
Week 3 Borderlands 2/Urban Trials Freestyle
Week 4 Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed

But since this month is has 5 Tuesdays maybe Urban Trials will be week 4 and Sonic Racing will be Week 5, but who knows.

Also I’m calling it. BUYERS BEWARE for Ni No Kuni will be free next month for plus lol

@129 very possible! but for that low of a price, it’s really worth it. Heck i paid 60$ for it and it was worth it!

carlpain said:

December 2nd, 11:21 am

@126: Congratulations. You are the jerk of the day. Maybe some people aren’t too crazy about throwing 400 bucks + Tax for a console that isn’t a 100% ready. Early adapters always get problems.

auskyem said:

December 2nd, 11:22 am

I’m too loyal. I paid $60 for Defiance on PSN. $2.50 really turns the knife. I know it’s not Sony’s fault it flopped or was possibly meant to be F2P.

That’s great i hope here in brazil they put the same update

RyanMcBainDOTcom said:

December 2nd, 11:33 am

Has Sony ever heard of the Playstation 4? They could at least throw a Poker game our way.

Moofboy said:

December 2nd, 11:34 am

Great prices on the sales (especially NNK), but I am hesitant to purchase anything since it will probably end up in the IGC anyway.

@Morgan/Kristine: I just want to rant a bit about how the PSN redemption was handled. I know it doesn’t have to deal with you directly, but here goes anyway. I, and many others, found it extremely frustrating when Sid posted about the error messages and redemption problems on Friday. My gripe is with “We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide an update soon.” There were two irrelevant replies to comments, but no update was ever given. Has the problem been solved? Give Sid a verbal smack for me and get him to follow through on his post. Thanks guys!

December 2nd, 11:36 am

This is a good deal, i guess i can get terraria now. I’ve always wanted this game thanks to being a PS Plus member & at this price i’ll get it for sure now!!!!!!!!!!!

ZeroAdiel said:

December 2nd, 11:39 am

Nice, glad i renewed my sub for Dec. It is nice to see people interested in FFXIV as well. If anyone wants help starting the game and just joining, add me and I can help anyone in the game. Playing with friends is always more enjoyable when playing a MMO.

wistomadero said:

How can I contact Sony for the error occurring when I try to redeem my 1-year subscription??
I have lost 4 valuable days of PS+
Please help

Ni No Kuni!!! could’n be happier with this week benefit

MeowMixFriskies said:

December 2nd, 12:01 pm

I will be buying and activating a PS+ membership on December 2013-near the 26th, will HotlineMiami be free still by that time, and will GravityRush and Wipeout be free as well? I just want Hotline Miami!

Whatever happened to the promised Black Friday deals in Canada?
Crystal MacKenzie’s response to #14
“There will be a Plus offer in Canada for Black Friday.”
Just want to know, was there one? What was it and if not why couldn’t we of been told the truth?

Add to my plus wish list
Dead space 3
blood curse siren
Lost planet
Any of the metro games

hazelcabug said:

please put on discount all the past vita games that were included in ps plus instant collection long ago…

December 2nd, 12:51 pm

Where is the flash sale of This week? Something pop up on the store but war removed, as the end date 11/02 from the current sale. It’s still coming right?

SDkngsht said:

December 2nd, 1:11 pm

can we get Runner for PS4?

not sure all that goes into it but how hard would it be to make the PS3 downloadable games available for PS4 like you did with Flower? would love to be able to up my library by re-downloading a couple of my past PSN purchases.

SDkngsht said:

December 2nd, 1:16 pm

anyway these PS Plus games can be made playable on PS4 as well? seems like an easy way to get our library stronger. I had Borderlands 2 and loved it but didn’t get to finish all the downloadable content. would be cool to be able to digitally download and continue the fun on my PS4.
