  • lisatsunami

    Tales of Zesteria pre-order!! Yes, that’s showing some RPG love, thanks!

    • Grace Chen

      You’re welcome! The Tales series holds a special place in my heart as Tales of Destiny was among the first JRPGs I played on the PS1. How many in the series have you played?

    • icecoldgangstaa

      Agreed! I feel that I’ll be able to enjoy gaming to the fullest with all the JRPG’s that’s been announced and released.

  • Happy Tuesday! :-)

    XOXO

    • HellBringer1975

      please bring avatars to ps4 its so ugly the basic ones and i am not switching my face book page to a cool gamer picture just to have a great avatar

  • Blood Bowl 2 isn’t on the PSN store. It was there yesterday, but now it’s gone. Any idea what’s going on?

  • Underwhelming sales this week, though at least the flash sale was awesome

    • Grace Chen

      Hi Mando44646! Happy you enjoyed the last flash sale. What was your favorite game that you picked up?

    • ZeldaLovesMe

      The flash sale was horrible for ps4 and you won´t save the vita by spamming vita discounts to all ps4 owners

  • Again with rather underwhelming sales. Assassins Creed and Batman? I guess because they never go on sale. Just like GTA…

  • Extreme exorcism is not on the Playstation store for me. And when i click on the thumbnail picture above it says “Unable to find this page”

    whats going on?

    • Look at it a little closer. There’s a bit of info you glossed over.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      @Thillhouse : LOL xD

    • Grace Chen

      Hi MarzX! Extreme Exorcism is scheduled to launch on 9/23. So you’ve got one more day to hone your ghost hunting skills!

  • Wait, why is AC 3: Liberation more expensive on the Vita than it is on the PS3, when the HD version is supposed to be the “definitive” version?

    • Because the Vita version has that terrible online mode. So they think that classifies as more content to charge more for.

  • I love the layout for PlayStation store update. Lookng forward to playing Tales of Zestiria, very glad to see the pre-order option available.

  • TeamGreen615

    I would love to see some racing games go on sale again sometime. WRC4 and RidgeRacer for the Vita would be nice.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      I enjoyed WRC3 on Vita and all i need to platinum it is to play only multiplayer with someone but i can never find anyone online. If anyone has WRC3 or is going to buy it for Vita then friend me and lets race online and get that platinum, it’s a really fun game.

      Hooray games!

  • Very excited about Afro Samurai 2! yeah!

  • I’m curios as to who is requesting these PS1 classics? Is “Racing” really more worthy than some of the other classics that haven’t hit the PS store? Where is Rival Schools for the US PS store?

    Also PS Blog team, are PS+ discounts going away? We rarely see + discounts anymore. Is it because the service is mandatory for online play???

    • *Curious

    • Their publishers are requesting to release them on PSN.

      There are 19 items on sale this week for PS+, though it should obviously be 395 at the very least if they cared about PS+ at all.

  • YookonCornelius

    How does Ubisoft/PSN neglect to put any of the “Assassins Creed” DLC or bundle/ultimate/gold editions on sale? Inconceivable!

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      True.

      Greed is a horrible thing. SMH

    • PrimeroIncognito

      @ Orpheus

      Yep, especially when it’s greedy consumers who want everything cheap, and, when they don’t get it, they pull the switcheroo card and call the company “greedy”… you know, instead of admitting to their own greed. Works every time, right? ;)

  • Nothing special for me this week, waiting for Friday to pick up my copy of the Michael Jordan Edition of NBA 2K16.

  • MagnificentMale

    What, no Resident Evil Revelations 2 Vita for $1.00? Well, maybe next week :-)

  • ShadowStar83x

    Picked up a few things in the AC sale.

  • deadmanjedi

    Where are the playstation plus discounts again this week?

    • ZeldaLovesMe

      Not even Driveclub shows under “ps discounts” section, but its filled with dlc crap nobody buys

  • Any word on a Persona 4: Dancing All Night pre-order or digital special edition?

  • Is there something wrong with the Canadian price for Assassins Creed Unity? Sale for US is $20 but Canadian is $35?? There’s no way that can be right! Price difference from US to CAD on Batman and most other games is generally only a few bucks, Last I checked our dollar was NOT trading at $0.25 against the US$.

  • Ok, so last week’s horrible sale was followed by one of the worst Flash Sales in recent memory, and they follow that up with an even worse weekly sale. Thanks. Basically, if you don’t play or care for one of these two franchises, nothing for you.

    Let’s see MORE SALES ON CLASSICS, as well as releasing more PS1 classics like Vandal Hearts, Saga Frontier, Jade Cocoon, Einhander, etc.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      LOL. That’s what I said! xD

      I’m still waiting to see those discounts from the TLoU “sale” they announced earlier though…who knows? Maybe that will save this week for me…but since it’s Sony, I’m not holding my breath. =\

  • HitmanRebornEX

    Well now i guess i’ll buy the arkham knight season pass since its going for 27 dollars with the ps+ discount.

  • Orpheus_Aeons

    So…basically if you’re NOT into Assassin’s Creed and/or Batman games…there’s NO SALES this week. Great. *sigh*

    • You forgot to mention The Cursed Crusade and God Mode are on sale, yet again ;-) Also that Last of Us sale starts tomorrow.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      Yeah…don’t tell anyone but…I really liked God Mode when it came out. xD

      Although to be fair at this point Atlus should be giving away the damn thing for free since it’s kinda obvious that no one wants it. =P

      Maybe switch to a F2P model for God Mode 2? (LOL Because I’m sure that will happen…the sequel thing not the F2P one xD )

  • What happened to the extra 10% discount for ps plus memebers on the afro samurai series? Thought it was supposed to be 20% for reg members and 30% for ps plus

  • A free oddworld dynamic theme? Good stuff

  • I know I can’t be alone in wanting some NHL avatars. The preseason has started lets do this!

  • no lego batman 3? really? how lame. I’ve been waiting for playing that game. I’ve already purchased the 2 first games; you cannot do a batman sale without the newest lego batman, it makes no sense

  • blog.us.playstation.com/2015/09/10/afro-samurai-2-revenge-of-kuma-volume-1-hits-ps4-on-september-22nd/ This post says that it was supposed to be 30% off for plus members

  • What’s up with the missing PS+ Discount for Afro Samurai?

  • SHADOWFORKS

    I don’t know when you updated it, but holy cow it’s awesome you added the buttons for linking to the store.

  • DANTESINFERNO

    Can someone explain me where on PS4’s PS Store do I find demos? Since they changed the list categories I cant find the demo section

  • DANTESINFERNO

    Oh and BTW one mistake I noticed. The Oddworld’s theme says and it is Dynamic but below the title it says static .

    • Rezolution77

      Because I still own a Vita, which is still the best handheld on the market.
      That is, except for the price on software.

  • Rezolution77

    Already have Assassin’s Creed Liberation on Vita, if you don’t, I would grab it at that price.
    The rest I have caught better sales on.

    And yet another week I am glad I switched to Steam / PC.
    I am not only mobile and can be work related, but, I can take advantage of much better prices on games such as Assassin’s Creed or Batman.

    Picking up Max Payne 3 for $5, and pretty sure it will be the “Definitive” edition.
    Truth be told, I almost forgot it used to be Playstation Day.

    Oh well, back to The Evil Within, (that I picked up for $15 on Ebay).

    < Where is my Plus now ?
    Oh that's right, Sony used to be great, and then they got greedy.

    See ya possibly in February.

    • PrimeroIncognito

      It sounds like you’re the greedy one, honestly. Expecting every game to be 5 bucks? Get real, son.

      If Steam is great and Sony is crap, why are you even here?

    • PrimeroIncognito the guy is free to say whatever he wants, specially if what he says makes sense.

      If you’d rather throw your money at anything PS gives you then you’re part of the real problem and the reason the prices are getting ridiculous even on “sales”.

      On the other hand, if you’re looking for them hiring you just send a CV…

    • PrimeroIncognito

      @ zirocrath

      Nothing he says ever makes sense.

      Imagine if a Coca-Cola fan was going to the Pepsi forums everyday just to tell everyone that Coke is so much better and that everyone who likes Pepsi is a fool… over and over and over and over and over… or, an In-N-Out burger fan was hanging out at McDonalds everyday just to tell the customers not to spend their money there, then brag about how much better the other place is. People would eventually just tell that idiot to go where he likes and leave everybody else alone because the business was neither made for him, nor revolves around him. Get it? Does THAT make sense?

    • PrimeroIncognito

      By the way, a little thing called “inflation” is why prices keep rising. What lunacy it is to blame inevitable economical effects on a small set of deep-pockets consumers, not like I “throw all my money at everything Sony gives us” anyway… but, whatever. Ridiculous arguments from pseudo-intellectuals are common these days.

      Personally, I wouldn’t waste my time hanging out in a place I didn’t like, but, that’s just me, I guess…

    • Big words! I like that… I actually work on financial costs as a senior analyst … so give me some credit here. Your example makes sense, and I might lack the background of this guy spamming Steam each time he logs, so I give you that.

      No, it’s nonsense at all to keep prices as they are at day one until more than 1 year later. Steam and other gaming companies (Nintendo,etc) make price reductions on their games no matter how old they are, and they also do it if the game is not that attractive to the public. While Sony keeps their prices, which ok, you may call that a diversity strategy, offering a better more custom platform for a higher price, but they also put some indie games (ported from other platforms) at a higher price than in the original.

      Also, in a market, a Sale has to be public oriented in order to make impact and grow your customers base, and not just profit oriented. Sadly this system has been working for them since there’s still part of the public functional to the company interest..

    • PrimeroIncognito

      @ zirocrath

      Yes, he spams the $#!# out of this forum with repeated claims that:

      1. Sony should listen to him because he’s “wise” (Funny!),

      2. He’s a victim of corporate greed, even though less than 1% of Sony’s customers are complaining, and when you see who is complaining, it’s ALWAYS a loud-mouth, spoiled, pseudo-intellectual brat who hasn’t even scratched the surface when it comes to knowledge of industry workings,

      3. Steam is “better” even though they’re really just different – an entirely different profit model, less overhead, and a lack of long-term influence to maintain spread across multiple brand divisions. By the way, Valve was graded a big juicy “F” by the Better Business Bureau… ’cause they’re “better”.

    • PrimeroIncognito

      Now, as for the other stuff…

      Where the hell does “public oriented” come into play here? This isn’t a school or a city park, it’s a niche division of a still somewhat under-appreciated medium. Did you mean to say “consumer oriented”? And, why state the obvious like it’s profound? Do you think Sony wouldn’t know that anyway? After all, they’ve been in business for over 60 years, so, they must be doing something right.

      As far as I know, most of these indie games are the same price on XBL and Steam, too, at least when they’re new, so, when the conspiriturds come spewing their libel against Sony “attempting to get away with shady business practices” by “testing the dumb consumers to see how much they’ll tolerate”, it obviously looks really embarrassing for all of us, as a community.

      I’ve seen Sony drop their game prices on numerous games and other products/services numerous times, so, I don’t know what you’re talking about. Coincidentally, Nintendo is the company who is notorious for keeping their prices fixed for longer-than-average periods of time.

    • Hmmm.. interesting concepts.

      And yeah, I meant consumer oriented.
      For that I meant that a company should listen to their costumers instead of applying the “just deal with it” policy.

      I do respect your opinion since you seem to be well versed.
      Still, you can’t ignore a big number of unsatisfied people that invested their profits in products that went sent astray.

      I for instance bought a Vita back when it came out, hoping to see more titles like those that came out at the beginning, and now I barely have an additional joystick for the PS4 supplied with indie games and niche oriented games. Many people complained about that and I’m not talking about this forum only.
      So that’s what I was referring to when I said Sony doesn’t listen to their customers.

    • On the other hand, I disagree with you on regards of Nintendo. I have a 3DS and I see frequent price drops. Might not happen with their golden label titles that often, but it does most of the times. Also, my friends who use Steam showed me how after a year most games drop 50% their prices.

      I understand that not all companies should be the same, but I don’t share the way Sony responds to the public claims…

      Aaaanyway… we won’t change anything here. My final thought here is not to place ourselves under the wing of a company, dis-regardless how much we appreciate it, we should learn to spect more.

    • @ PrimeroIncognito – On the B.O 3 PS4 post he did said something that makes sense.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      @zirocrath : Hey, bro…you’re free to do whatever you wish, since you don’t know me and you have zero reason to trust me but I’ll say it anyway: don’t confuse “big words” with “well versed”.

      A semi-smart FANBOY it’s still a FANBOY. And there’s no reason to feed them. They will spin a huge web of “truths” for anything to defend the company they love.

      So…trust me: don’t waste your time. There’s no point in arguing with someone that only sees “his truth” as “the only truth”.

      Take care yourself. ;)

  • KoldStrejke

    Ok, any body get that PS1 classic “racing” is it any good? Cant beleive they release this and not GT1, or GT2.

  • HeavyD-Love

    How come Lego Jurassic World demo and Dying Light demo so difficult to find on PS4?? They don’t show up in the regular demo section on PS Store like they should :(

  • ZeldaLovesMe

    Rally Copters looks like a fun little game like Kuru Kurin which was similiar but you were only a stick not a helicopter :p

    But 12.99$ seriously sony? Do you not have any stats how nobody buys these games at such ridiculous prices without refunds as in Steam & Google play? Maybe at $2.99

    • I’m pretty sure they are aware, or else it wouldn’t be priced like that. Just because the crap App stores like Google Play and IOS price them stupid cheap, it doesn’t mean that no other game should be higher than that.

    • PrimeroIncognito

      I love how people like you always pretend that phone games don’t have ads on them.

  • Why is there no sale for the PS3 version of batman:arkham origins blackgate?

  • Apparently the blog team or Sony didn’t think it was worth its own post, but just so everyone is aware:

    MEGAMAN LEGENDS IS RELEASING NEXT WEEK ON PSN!!!

  • I keep seeing this and I will try and explain it again. Hopefully at least one person will gain something from this.

    Valve, Sony and Microsoft do not make the sales you see on these games!

    Prices and sales are all set by the publishers.

    Now some retail stores have a bit more control, but most sales are set by the people who release said item. Good example was Mad Max Fury Road was $27.99 at Target, Amazon, and Best Buy at release for the 3D Blu-ray set.

    Even if you look at the Xbox store or PSN store, many of the same games go on sale between them from week to week. So if Assassin’s Creed is on sale this week on PSN, then next week it might be on sale for Xbox Live. Generally the same prices as well.

    Also even Steam has the prices, unless it is one of the low end indie titles.

    So if you want to complain about price, you are in the wrong place. Look up Ubisoft, EA, Capcom, Square-Enix or whoever is the publisher of said title.

    • ZeldaLovesMe

      You don´t know how things work buddy. It´s sonys PLATFORM and sonys STORE so they make the rules. They make contracts about putting games on sale whenever they want. It depends on the publishers how it´s done and if they want to agree to it, of course.

      You can even see for the sony games, there just was a great deal on Pupeteer but other games like the great Siren are almost never on sale. Who do you want to blame here if not sony?

    • ZeldaLovesMe

      Another thing, see Driveclub,.
      People dont even know whats actually in what version.
      The “full game” (without season pass) is now just $15 and they claimed in twitter its the full game but the description in the store says its only INDIA Tracks. wtf?
      Do you really want to say Sony isn´t the most amateurish company in history of videogames and that´s the reason they´re dying to mobile who do everything better?

    • @Zelda

      First of all they do make some contracts which is true, but overall if there is an Ubisoft sale, Ubisoft decided on it. Also your argument is more about the way they handle content in the store. I was referin to the sales alone. Also I know a lot about the subject.

      So the Publishers do decide the sales. Sony in this case likely did not prompt Ubisoft in anyway who is trying to promote Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. In fact next week you will likely see the same sale on Xbox and then Steam. Now some of the Batman games have PS+ sales on top of the sale already which would hint at a higher possibility of them working it out ahead of time.

      @SilentNova : You’re right…and so is ZeldaLovesMe. And that’s why there’s really no point in arguing about this. =\

      Yes, Sony doesn’t control most of what goes on sale nor most of the prices. But it’s also true that Sony COULD DO IT. And that’s why a lot of people complains about that sort of thing.

      You think all the “free” PS+ games are “free” because those publishers want to? ;)

  • “The Book of Unwritten Tales 2” is also out this week, surprised they completely failed to mention it.

  • On the PS3 storefront, in the Deals section there is a banner that that says The Last of Us is free for Plus members, but when you click on it, it says that it’s $19.99. What’s up with that?

  • Hmm… so is the Vote to Play thing not going to be every month or are we just getting a REALLY late update for the October selection? The article released that mentioned it said that the feature would be each month.

  • ElektroDragon

    @38: Yeah especially since The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 appears to be the ONLY good release this week!

  • It sucks that games are now $80 regular price in Canada. I really don’t buy any at launch anymore…

    • I completely stopped as well, with only a couple of exceptions (like FIFA this week). It’s too bad, I quite liked getting everything as soon as it was out.

  • Hey Playstation, love the list. But I can’t find Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation for the PS Vita in the (dutch) Playstation Store. Will this be available anytime soon?

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      The info you see here is for the AMERICAN PS Store ONLY. You need to go to the EUROPEAN Blog to find out what you want.

  • I was wondering what the chances are of a Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable sale are with EDF2 on the way?

  • Phenix--Nguyen

    Heard rumors that Black Flag is going be one of October PS Plus free? Is it true Sony?

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      It could be, since Ubisoft is practically giving the game away at every chance they got. =P

      Who knows? Where did you hear it? Is it a “trusted” source? =\

  • Need a starz\encore movie app or maybe even the twc tv app… just saying!?!?!????

  • IAFROSAMURAI

    Does pre ordering Tales of Zesteria on playstation come with the pre order bonuses?

      That’s an awesome idea! Is that your channel?

      I think I’ll end up subscribing to it…so if it’s yours KUDOS on the great idea! (and job!) =)

  • It baffles me that there is never a sale on Trine 1,I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen Trine 2 on sale but never Trine 1…what a shame.
    BTW what happened to Unity’s season?…might get China for $5 if the season ain’t available anymore.
    Also $30 for the season of Arkham Knight?….someone at Sony please tell Rocksteady/WB to have shame in their m********** faces.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      Trine 1 was “free” for PS+ a looong time ago, so may be that’s why? =\

      Anyway it’s $1 Sale material by now so…maybe on a future Flash Sale? ;)

  • iamtylerdurden1

    To anyone who has not tried Tearaway Unfolded yet there is a demo i urge you to try. It is a phenomenal game.

    Extra Point: on PS4 there is an excellent free dynamic Oddworld theme. Mr. Lanning wanted you to have it.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      Is it actually “dynamic”? Because someone said it was a static theme. =\
