    Will The Banner Saga be cross buy with the Vita version when it eventually comes out?

    • Considering Banner Saga. Anyone played it and recommend it? Also interested in Thief and Murdered:Soul Suspect but they both have mixed reviews. Would like feedback from anyone who’s played those also.

    • MakaiOokami

      It doesn’t seem likely.

      The summary seems to be that they started a PS4 port about the same time they did the Android IOS port. They paid 3 companies to work on porting for 1 week, and went with the company that did the best. That company had a lot of people leaving, then collapsed, and they had to find another group to then port the game, and they’ve been really impressed by their work, but since things happened that way they had to basically pay double for porting it.

      They can only really only do the port to Vita if they make enough money on the PS4 version, which means they probably can’t afford Cross-buy. However if you get people to ask them if they can atleast do a $5 upgrade if it isn’t Cross-buy they might go for that.

      Banner Saga 2 (which is being worked on by all 4, yes 4 full time team members small team) is using a similar (albeit upgraded enhanced engine) and they think that the port of Banner Saga 2 will be far far easier.

      There’s a chance that the Vita version could become cross-buy, but on the other hand it sounds like that would only happen if the PS4 version did really really well and people asked really nicely. Though I think a cheap upgrade would be a fair compromise.

    • Murdered: Souls Suspect is a really good story based game. Only real downsides are an almost non-combat system, not too long but not the shortest game in the world, and nearly nothing to do after completion except for collectables. Good graphics and and good story, worth the price it is now.

    • @Dilbig5- thanks for the feedback. Definitely will consider it at that price.

    • FinalFantsy887

      I Wonder If Playstation Will Ever Put Wwf Smackdown And Wwf Smackdown 2 : Know Your Role For Psone classic, With That, They Should Also Put Pepsiman As A Psone Classic, But They Should Put Smackdown and Smackdown 2 : Know you role For Psone Classic,

  • Everything that I want to go on sale is NOT going on sale :(

    • then buy it, expecting a flash sale for a game you want is just silly. I own the games I want, flash sales let me consider games I was on the fence about or that I otherwise would not have purchased at full price.

    • MakaiOokami

      What games did you want? They are probably on sale somewhere… Best Buy Gamer Rewards, Gamestop, Somewhere…

      You’ll be able to get games galore cheap around black Friday so if you’re going to wait 4 months, you might as well not buy any games the last 2 months and prep for those deals.

  • Really great prices this time around and prices I expect flash sales to have. Great work guys.

    There are many I want, but I need to choose wisely. I’ve been wanting The Warriors on PSP/Vita, but it’s basically the last game Rockstar needs for classics on PS4 so I will just have to wait patiently for it. Hopefully soon it’ll be on PS4.

    Thinking Castle Game and Killzone just for mp(need a good mp game since UC4 mp sucks) and banner Saga. May just get them all with these discount being great this time.

  • 108 games for $5 or less? Thank you Sony, this is the flash sale we’ve been waiting for!

    Does anyone know how to buy games you’ve already gotten for free from PlayStation Plus? There are several previous PS+ games on sale like Zombi and Hitman Trilogy that I’d love to buy now in case they one day end the service or I decide not to renew. You can create a second account to buy them, but that’s annoying to manage two accounts, and Vita and PS TV only let you use one account anyway.

    • MakaiOokami

      Basically you have to wait until your PS Plus sub expires…

      I guess alternatively you could contact any of the indie developers and tell them you’d like to buy their game for the flash sale price, and get a voucher code. Though good luck trying that on the weekend.

      You can grab bundles the games are in so if Don’t Starve is one you want you can grab the Reign of Giants bundle. Though then again it’s not available for me… So you might just have to settle for owning the Pirate themed one and Don’t Starve Together when they come out. (If that’s a game that matters to you)

      I think they make it hard to buy stuff you already own by accident so that you don’t waste money by accident. After all PS Plus is only $4 and if you cancel it you’ll really be ****ed if your hard drive ever goes out because of a power surge and you lose all your save data.

    • You can’t

    • If your PS+ Subscription is active, you cannot, because you have already “purchased” it. It would only be possible for an account not currently subscribed to PS+.

    • jabberwockgee

      You can contact them to see if they’ll remove it from your account.

  • SgtKamarov69

    Hitman Trilogy including Blood Money is 3.99$ but the Blood Money itself is 4.24$. Really makes sense lol.

    Nonetheless it’s a cool sale. I am going to pick up Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Journey and The Darkness 2.
    Thanks a lot.

  • PiotrRasputinBR

    Been waiting for ages for a P3P sale!!! Mwahuahuahuahuahua it’s finally mine!

  • MetalNightmare

    No War of the Monsters for PS4? Bummer.

  • Interesting Sale but I already have these from previous flash sales lol. Still good that others will have a chance to do so.

  • CrovorsAudio

    I would like to see Tales of Hearts R, Demon Gaze and Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy for SALE. On Summer will be GREAT!

  • Nobody else here getting extreme deja vu..? How many of these games were free for PS plus you think, between 25-35?

    • I was thinking the exact same thing. I guess I would rather have a flash sale than none at all. LOL.

    • I wonder why my avatar and ps+ is not showing up. Hmmm…

    • MakaiOokami

      Yeah but on the flip side people that are new PS Plus subscribers can get the games they missed for about the price of 1 month of sub.

    • Makai knows what’s up; yes, some have been + content & were discounted before. But those that missed the + titles or even new PS4 guys & gals will love this sale.

      Prices are great for oldish retail games! (=

  • Thanks mans. This is the type of flash sale that defines flash sale. I wish we had more of these kind more often. 5 and below, this rocks.

    I remember one of the better ones that actually helped convinced a friend of mine to run out and buy a PS3 simply because the flash sale was so good. Ya’ll had bunch of 1 dollar games up, it was like 2 years ago though. I feel like this flash sale doesn’t compare to that one, but it would really be awesome if we had ones like this more often.

  • Feels great seeing “purchased” next to so many items on this list, from past purchases or PS+. My wallet is happy, and it’s a good reminder about the extent of my backlog (I’m buried lol).

    Thanks for the flash sale!

  • Does buying Don’t Starve: Console Edition + Reign of Giants on PS4 give me the PS3 version as well?
    Thanks!

    • Yes, 3-Way cross-buy.

      No cross-save BUT, there are separate Trophy lists for each platform.

    • I got Don’t Starve free with PS Plus. While I could complain I can’t buy the bundled version and have it incase something happens with my PS Plus sub, I did get the Vita version and PS3 version for free and those will probably work even if things go weird.

      However they are also releasing 2 new Don’t Starve games anyway so… it’s not like I can’t buy them.

      I would be interested in seeing if Don’t Starve Together will be Free for Plus. Seems like a solid option, since you need + so play online anyway.

  • Oh sheesh. This is a really great sale but I bought so many disc games recently with Uncharted 4, Ratchet and Clank and Metal Gear Solid V. With the digital PSN sales, I recently got Rayman Legends, Metro Redux and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition. I am considering getting Killzone: Shadowfall, Murdered: Soul Suspect or The Wolf Among Us.

  • kiratachibana

    Cool, Glad I forgot to buy Killzone during the previous sale, now it’s only $4.99.

  • We don’t have them here on Turkey. Why is that? I was looking forward to buying Journey.

    • Because this is a US PSN only flash sale, there is a may madness sale going on Turkey PSN right now, you may want to check that.

  • I am gonna skip on Killzone: Shadowfall and Murdered: Soul Suspect. I am gonna get The Wolf Among Us and Super Mega Baseball (85 metascore!).

  • Starbuck3188

    So Hitman Trilogy is $3.99….but it’s $4.24 to buy Hitman Blood Money HD which is included in the Trilogy pack?!?!?! wat

  • still waiting for dark cloud 1&2 on sale :)

  • Soulslayer434

    Thief is 5.24 on my PS4 ;)

  • Andy & alls,

    Hitman Go is ALSO Cross-buy if anyone’s interested!

    • Is this confirmed? It only says playable on Vita or PS4 depending what version i purchase.

    • @neve, it was confirmed by the dev. Google it & you’ll find it!

    • @luvtoseek Excellent! Thank you for the response! Will definitely be making the purchase!

  • Sonikku_Ninja

    need more Vita games

  • Spitfire_Zero_

    Why is Journey PS3 showing up on sale and PS4 version still shows up as full price? They are cross buy, even the description says so. Cross buy games are supposed to have price parity between platforms. If anyone bought it during this sale, can they confirm that the PS4 version also shows up in their download list? Thanks in advance.

    • @spitfire_zero.

      They should have Journey on sale as well for PS4. Do you have a PS3? They are cross buy. I purchased the PS3 version long time ago and I was able to download the PS4 version free. Any time something is cross buy, go purchase the PS3 version first and then later download the PS4 version. I believe you have to do that with Zen Pinball (cross buy) as well. I don’t believe you can purchase a PS4 version and then go back to download the PS3 version. Weird. I purchased Super Mega Baseball (cross-buy) for PS3 now and gonna download it for both PS3 and PS4.

    • With Zen Pinball yes you have to buy it on PS3 or Vita, and then upgrade it to PS4.

      If you don’t have a PS3 with which to buy Journey at, I recommend going onto the webstore Sony has and buying it that way, and hten downloading to your PS4.

      Problem solved?

    • Just bought the PS3 version of Journey and then were able to download it for the PS4 without a problem.
      Sometimes it’s a marketing decision to “hide” specific discounts.. for instance Uncharted Collection was $28.79 last February but it wasn’t published anywhere.

  • I picked up Banner Saga and Transistor. I’ve always been interested in Banner Saga and 3 hour into it and I’m in love. Pre-ordering BS2 as soon as available!

  • zakaria-anam

    These prices not compatible with asia region, why?

    • lol because it’s a north american region sale. europe has a may madness sale as far as I know

  • PainOfSarrow

    War of the monster’s and Hitman Trilogy. I’ll finally take. Nice

  • Can anyone confirm if i buy Hitman Go it will be cross buy. I want the Vita version but if i can get the PS4 with it ill take it! I’m in Canada if that matters. Also will be buying Killzone and Murdered Soul Suspect on PS4 thanks Sony! Great Flash Sale!

    • Yes, I can confirm that Hitman GO is 3-way cross buy for PS4, PS3 and Vita.
      I just bought PS4 version of Hitman GO yesterday and now both versions are on my Download List.

  • Bought PS Allstars downloaded it then upon installation got the c2-12383-7 error. Tried redownloading and reinstalling it 3 times same error popped up. Is there a fix for this?

    • LIQUID_SNAKE19

      i bought it as well and i am having the same problems

    • dragonhead10

      I talked to their support today since I had the same problem. They said rebuilding the data base on the vita through safe mode could help. In my case it didn’t. Not too sure why this problem is resurfacing because there was this exact same issue a couple of years ago.

    • Did anyone find a solution? I’ve tried a couple times already. And really hope to play the game soon.
      Maybe they’ll do it in the maintenance day?

  • Killzone: Mercenary is $4.99, too. I have just about everything I want for the Vita now, so thanks.

  • zombi 4,99 CDN $ worth? :)

  • Sony what the hell? it´s been years since all stars was launched and still haven´t solved the psn install issue on the vita? I´ve downloaded the game 2 times now and it still doesn´t get it done.

  • Picked up:
    Duke Nukem Forever… why not :P
    The Darkness II
    The Bureau Xcom Declassified
    Risk

    16 bucks for all that, yes please!

  • matthew1836

    I bought Just Cause 2 Ultimate Edition, L.A. Noire, Pure Pool. this was a great sale I would have bought more but some of the games I got free with PS Plus I rather pay for them now at this price then keep PS Plus

  • This is a legit flash sale. i thought the walking dead season one on ps4 was never going to go on sale(since it didn’t even go on sale during the telltale publisher sale). Thank goodness for this sale.

  • eggofthe_king

    Sweet! Just got my Ps4 for uncharted 4 and wanted to get Killzone eventually, glad It went on sale for $5. Thanks!

  • Scyntillian

    When will Gradius V be available for PS4? I haven’t seen a good shooter game as of late. Nice lineup for the flash sale as well.

  • Skeetlejuice

    So a good flash sale, despite a large portion being given with plus or on sale prior like 3-10 times.

    Why kill zone but not knack? This makes no sense. I bought kz at launch and traded it in if it wasn’t 55-60 gigs I’d buy it but I don’t want to take up hd room with having to delete stuff to make room for Nasty Nate. That game is so sick!

    For new ps4 owners that like fps this is a good pickup. I wish playstation would allow giving gifts like steam / Apple etc. I’d gift kz to my friend since he likes shooters and got his ps4 in January.

    No Firewatch either I was hoping, and no season pass for kings quest I got first episode free no way am I buying the 1.5 hour episode 2 and breaking my option to buy the season on sale later.

    But Wolf among us either the cheapest it’s been or tied. I think I will get that. Banner saga is a close consideration but I find I want certain games on certain platforms and with steam and patience I’d rather play that on iPad or laptop so I can’t buy it on PS4.

    Still some good deals on here PS3 rockstar games, vita is a joke as usual gonna sell mine and same for PS3 so I don’t buy “deals” any more for those just finishing what I have left.

  • Skeetlejuice

    So what are the odd I buy wolf among us today and it’s a free game for June or July, they love to give the old crossplay games they have puppy dog attempted to sell over and over on rotating discounts.

    I’ll be super cheezed if it’s wolf and shovel knight.

    I buy so few sale games for this reason, especially non full games, the moral of the story is only buy stuff you will play the month you buy them and only buy stuff you wanted when it was never on sale.

    It’s so weird that the plus punishes you for buying games, and literally since December when I wasn’t going to renew but a friend gave me a year of plus for Christmas there has been exactly the first chapter of kings quest that I found compelling enough to complete, that is just a business play and a glorified demo.

    So paying for multiplayer or to be punished for buying 3-8 digital games a year when after being in sale half of them go IGC.

    Honestly who’s playing tropico the month uc4 comes out. Smh. Still wouldn’t reup I’d just stop playing multiplayer on ps4

    • Skeetlejuice

      Last point of my now rant.

      It used to be they offered good games on PS3 and vita that has not been the case for this past year.

      Just indie titles now mostly generic multiplayer centric ones or average adventure game 3-7 months in a row on ps4.

      So it’s multiplayer and a sale on a major game 6-24 months after release. Here’s the problem with that;

      Microsoft has had better online services with Xbox live since the original Xbox and now despite paying for multiplayer ps4 is still behind in the online portion and options to even the PS3. What gives with that?

      Why are we even paying for multiplayer? Dedicated servers? No. Match making? No anything more than party chat from menu? No reputation system? No

      And ironically Xbox one now offers more compelling software with games with gold. Not just 65-75 rated metacritic indie schlock.

      I like ps4 and I like some of the best indies, if I loved multiplayer I’d be on Xbox one. It’s ironic. Good thing the hardware and exclusives are more to my taste.

    • @Skettle, “Why are we even paying for multiplayer?”

      I don’t blame you for not using these features but alot of gamers do;

      1. Cloud Saves
      2. Share Play (an online Friend can demo your game)
      3. Game Session Recording & Uploading

      I don’t even own a PS4 & these features I’m aware of; there are probably alot more I didn’t list. I guess these are new to you?

      Further, MS simply has better software engineers (they’re a prominent software giant) than Alot of companies- Sony or Nintendo will never surpass their network infrastructure. A PS+ sub pays for more than online Security & performance…

      Like games- and well, ye can’t please everyone with what they offer for free. I’ve subbed on & off.

  • Well this is super disappointing… I log on to make a handful of purchases on Monday the 23rd and the deals are no longer valid? WTF?

  • Please extend the sale :,(

  • BuzzardNoMore

    Playstation All Stars for Vita is still broke.
