It’d be nice to have PaRappa up on the store too. :(

 
Jules-Leuty 1 May, 2012 @ 4:11 pm   2

Killzone 3 Multiplayer for free; Will be looking forward to playing that tomorrow. Sly Trilogy looks tempting at £10 :)

 
nicolajNN 1 May, 2012 @ 4:12 pm   3

The Killzone 3 multiplayer, is that only the trial only or will the upgrade(ie no level cap)be free as well?

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 4:59 pm    

    This is only the trial version, not the full unlock version.

    Apologies for the confusion.

 
moriarty1975 1 May, 2012 @ 4:17 pm   4

Surprised the Killzone DLC for Modnation Racers isn’t included in the sale.

 
Dante_Zero 1 May, 2012 @ 4:18 pm   5

shame nothing for the psvita was inlcuded like a discount on modnation racers road trip.

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:00 pm    

    Yes it is a shame but there is a good reason for this… which I can’t discuss right now.

 
azakajam 1 May, 2012 @ 4:20 pm   6

A discount on the Killzone 3 maps would be nice :(

 
MikLSP 1 May, 2012 @ 4:20 pm   7

If that’s the full version of KZ3 MP for free I am pretty annoyed having just bought it! While it’s nice for things to go free, I disagree with it happening soon after launch as it just makes people feel stupid for buying it in the first week.

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:01 pm    

    Don’t fear, its not the full version, only the trial.

 
MikLSP 1 May, 2012 @ 4:21 pm   8

@ azakajam

Why do you need discounted maps when the full MP, which includes all DLC, is now free?!

 
pnov81 1 May, 2012 @ 4:28 pm   9

Andy will there be any RE ORC DLC tomorrow?

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:02 pm    

    Yes there is but you will have to wait till tomorrow to find out what it is exactly.

 
Mafusto 1 May, 2012 @ 4:28 pm   10

I bought the GoW collection last week in the sale for €22,99. This week it’s 3 Euro cheaper…

The Sly Trilogy is very tempting for 12.99.

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:05 pm    

    I apologies for this, the GoW pricing above is incorrect for the collections as they will still be €22,99. Getting the blog post updated to match this.

SSJ3_Bob_Marley 1 May, 2012 @ 4:28 pm   11

Definitely appreciated, thanks Sony!

 
RoaringMdog18 1 May, 2012 @ 4:28 pm   12

Sly 3 for just 5 Euro? Wow , thats great! Will be picking that one up for sure ^^ Also , the KZ3 mp. It that the full version for free , or can we still just play untill we reach a certain rand and then get kicked off?

MaikelSteneker 1 May, 2012 @ 4:35 pm   13

Everyone should definitely pick up those Sly games! Killzone 3 Multiplayer is fun as well, but I think it’s just the trial, as it’s listed with an original price of free. If not, I feel a bit sad for paying for it months ago; I have barely played it.

Speaking of Sly, I’m having a little issue with that. I got the first game free with Plus and then bought the Trilogy including the first game, but now that my Plus subscription is over it won’t work anymore saying it expired.

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:08 pm    

    For your PLUS issue, contact customer services who should be able to assist with this.

 
TheNarrator 1 May, 2012 @ 4:37 pm   14

can we have confirmation that the Killzone 3 Multiplayer thats going for £0.00 is actually just the Trial version? or is it the full unlocked version of the game thats going free?

kinda confusing (especially for someone who just tweeted its potential awesomeness xD).

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:08 pm    

    Yes I can cofirm that KZ3 MP is the trial version.

    Sorry for the confusion.

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 4:48 pm   15

I’ll pick up Twisted metal PS1 then ;)

With the announcement that Parrapa The Rapper is one of the characters, please beg, borrow or steal Parrapa The Rapper PS1 Classic & release it please!

@ MaikelSteneker

I know it’s a pain but if you need to delete your Sly Trilogy & Data Utility files. Once deleted make sure that you don’t have Sly 1 within your game folder too! You need to view your download list & re-download the Trilogy file & all should be okay!

Hope this helps :)

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 4:49 pm   16

* but you need to

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 4:50 pm   17

* woops, my bad. Parappa!

*SIGH* been a long day :(

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 4:53 pm   18

To all with reference to KZ3 multiplayer.

The Trial never had a price, as it was simply a Trial, so obviously it’s the full game!

 
almighty-slayer 1 May, 2012 @ 4:54 pm   19

Great sale. Already own nearly all of them though, booo.

Needs more Parappa, too

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 4:55 pm   20

One last thing so I don’t plague this post. Would someone be kind enough to state whether or not the Fat Princess online community, is still strong? Does anyone out there still currently play it?

Thanks in advance & take care peeps!

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:14 pm    

    I play it now and again as it is always a good laugh, I have not played it for about 5 months but last time I played there was still others playing it. Will have to try it again tonight.

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 5:06 pm   21

If KZ3 Online is just the Trial, what was the point in stating (Yes that’s correct, it costs €0.00!)like it’s a good thing? Obviously it would be free Andy if it’s a Trial…….SHEESH!

Should have just stated that the Trial is still available to download, instead of false pretences!

Grave_uk 1 May, 2012 @ 5:07 pm   22

I am interested in Sly collection, but have a question.

Does PSN version also include mini games, that are part of retail version?

In store there is no mention that mini games are part of the collection, only 3 games.

Thanks for answer.

 
Catkiller1 1 May, 2012 @ 5:08 pm   23

Oh look, more typos & missinformation!

Will a post & Store update, ever run smoothly?

 
marchie-g 1 May, 2012 @ 5:11 pm   24

Killzone: mp will be free. It does not come with the dlc thas how they will make there money. £7.99 etc. On that note will the dlc we own work on it. Think it should hope so.

AaronSOLDIER 1 May, 2012 @ 5:13 pm   25

Waiting on a Jak & Daxter Trilogy sale – ~£19.99 and I’ll buy it.

 
MikLSP 1 May, 2012 @ 5:14 pm   26

Thanks for the clarification regarding KZ.

Otherwise some decent discounts though perhaps GoW games are still a bit expensive considering the price of the Blu-Rays

 
MikLSP 1 May, 2012 @ 5:16 pm   27

Actually scrap that GoW comment I was looking at the Euro price not the GBP price, they are actually ok.

 
TheNarrator 1 May, 2012 @ 5:17 pm   28

thanks for clarifying the KZ3 confusion, Andy :)

ps. someone totally owes me a tweet now lol.

    Andy Stewart 1 May, 2012 @ 5:19 pm    

    Pleasure

    Good to hear people are tweeting and its not only just me :)

Dr-Bos 1 May, 2012 @ 5:24 pm   29

To bad the Sly costume for LBP2 ain’t on sale. Maybe I will get some Fat Princess. Great prices for great games.

 
Protome 1 May, 2012 @ 5:30 pm   30

Great sale! Disappointed to see no sale on the Fat Princess DLC however :(
But I think I’ll take this chance to pick up the other two Sly games, getting Sly Raccoon free with PS+ sold me on the series :D

 
almighty-slayer 1 May, 2012 @ 5:32 pm   31

Wait, if it’s the trial, how is that a pricedrop? The trial was always free, so saying it is free now isn’t a change.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great sales, too :) You’ve been doing great on the sales front recently

MaikelSteneker 1 May, 2012 @ 5:34 pm   32

@ Catkiller1: thanks for the help, but I don’t believe that will work. I already tried to redownload it (without deleting it from my PS3 first, but I don’t think that will make a difference), but the Trilogy and Sly 1 both had blue shopping carts next to them in the Store, just like my Plus content. Furthermore, the game has disappeared from my download list, also just like my Plus content.

@ Grave_uk: the mini games are exclusive to the disc release. The download version contains just the PS2 HD rereleases, all separate from each other (so you don’t have to download and install them all at once).

RichZtar 1 May, 2012 @ 5:44 pm   33

Unfortunately, Fat Princess isn’t compatible on Ps Vita so there is nothing on offer for me. The psp store has Killzone and God Of War as well, so why haven’t they been put on sale.

Btw, do you know why there insn’t a single Sly cooper released on the psp?

Zephon1 1 May, 2012 @ 6:27 pm   34

i fail to undestand why giving a free KZ3 trial for free is considered a sale, but thats just me :P

wwechelseafan 1 May, 2012 @ 6:29 pm   35

You probably won’t read this, but I have some requests:
1) PS2 Classic: The Simpsons Hit & Run.
2) WWE Avatars.
3) The Simpsons Avatars.
4) PS2 Classic: Spider-Man 2.

 
tiago-kun 1 May, 2012 @ 6:49 pm   36

I might actually get the Killzone 3 Multiplayer so I don’t have to put the disc everytime I want to get into that.

 
Domino2097 1 May, 2012 @ 6:49 pm   37

Can someone explain the reasoning why God of War Collection 1 and 2 are £16 each when they contain two games each and have been out for quite a long time while The Sly Trilogy is £10 but contains 3 games has new content and hasn’t been out as long?

 
morg106 1 May, 2012 @ 6:51 pm   38

As above, Spiderman 2 would he amazing! Also NFS Underground 2.

Chaosprower 1 May, 2012 @ 7:37 pm   39

I might get the Sly Trilogy. It would be cool if the Parappa game were put in the PS Store (Parappa 2 as a PS2 classic).

TaffyApple 1 May, 2012 @ 7:38 pm   40

Could you please throw infamous 2 into the sale, it’s still £50 same as prototype 2 and thats brand spanking new.

a hard copy is about £20 on most sites.

 
Bealinator 1 May, 2012 @ 8:08 pm   41

Word of warning: Sly Trilogy complete file size is huge. Around 24 gigs – take that into account before buying it! Fantastic games, just make sure your HDD can take it.

 
BenchyUK 1 May, 2012 @ 8:22 pm   42

Bit of a tricky question.

Does the PSN Sly Trilogy also come with the Move Mini Games?

I also got the first Sly for Free as a Plus member, if i buy the other 2 separately, will i get the Move Mimi games if they are included in the PSN version o do i need to buy the Whole Trilogy?

ferenzzz1971 1 May, 2012 @ 8:25 pm   43

Is it possible to get the game Gauntlet I and Gauntlet II back in the store… Old games but retro owz!! :)

These games were in the Store but now they’re gone!! :(

You know something about it Andy ?!

Cheers..

Commandofin 1 May, 2012 @ 8:25 pm   44

So, care to explain why you even included KZ3 MP over there if the trial was free anyways.

    Andy Stewart 2 May, 2012 @ 2:49 pm    

    It is part of the sale in the view that when you go to the sale area on the PSN Store, you will see this in there. Yes its a trial but it is still part of this campaign.

mikeytee24 2 May, 2012 @ 1:18 am   45

hi guys this is my first ever post just recently got a Playstation 3 console i was looking through the PSone classics on the playstation store there is a really good choice of old classics and i saw that you’ve just starting to put Playstation 2 games on there which is also cool and i was wondering if i could possibly ask if the game Nightmare Creatures will ever be available on the playstation store

AaronSOLDIER 2 May, 2012 @ 3:35 am   46

The Sly Trilogy on PSN doesn’t include the Move Mini games which is probably how they’ve managed to get it on the store cheaper than retail in the first place. I do think though that it should be added to PSN as a separate download now that the Trilogy is over a year old. Probably free too.

Paralellogram 2 May, 2012 @ 9:20 am   47

I do not understand, why do you not give us content that we want and consistently demand?

 
chrisandsheva 2 May, 2012 @ 10:09 am   48

I’m sorry Andy, But is this post some kind of joke.. or do you have crossed wires in the office ?.
Everything that’s listed above.. except i think, little princess, went out on a different sale last week.. oh apart from the Sly trilogy.., which was the ‘above’ sale price for 2-Weeks around a week after we got Sly1 from plus… so include that if your not a plus subber.. or wasn’t a month or two ago etc.. And ‘little-princess’ as The Only 2 new(ish) Sale items for ‘Battle Royale’.. (have to find out what that actually is now)…And Add the KZ3 MP error into that, Whats happening to the (scee) psn-store lately ?..

Well, Unless theres ‘other’ content you haven’t included in this post, i honestly cannot see why you allowed this post to happen, Please If i am somehow mistaken i apologise, and be Sure to explain my mistakes to me… am Not attempting to be negative, as i was Allready happy with the recent GoW/other sales.

    Andy Stewart 2 May, 2012 @ 2:45 pm    

    The only content in the Royale Sale that was also available last week was the God of War content. The rest is all new content from the different IPs.

    So therefore all the below is new:

    The Sly Trilogy
    Sly Raccoon
    Sly 2: Band of Thieves
    Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves
    Sly Cooper Pack – (ModNation Racing)
    Fat Princess
    Fat Princess: Supersize Anniversary Bundle
    Sweet Tooth Pack – (ModNation Racing)

    PSP
    Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake

    PSOne
    Twisted Metal

    HOME
    Radec’s Body Armour
    Radec’s Combat Trousers
    Radec’s Helmet
    Radec’s Tactical Gloves
    Radec’s Combat Boots

    Also the MK3 MP is not an error. It is part of the sale in the view that when you go to the sale area on the PSN Store, you will see this in there. Yes its a trial but it is still part of this campaign.

    Hope that clears things up for you and good to hear you like the GoW sale last week.

PuRe_Carnagex 2 May, 2012 @ 10:44 am   49

Heyy, could we have marvel vs capcom 3 avatars!? my favourite avatar is there USA have them so I hope we can too!?. Even if you just put one there but I’d really appreciate (Jill valentine avatar from mvc3) thankyouu for reading and hopefully updating it for me (:

quoth9999 2 May, 2012 @ 11:34 am   50

Hi, could u plz tell me when the mt Eddie dlc is out on psn in the UK? Seems other places have it already as per usual. Is it going to be a Thursday maintenance jobby? Just can’t wait to play it (~_^)

 
Catkiller1 2 May, 2012 @ 2:48 pm   51

@ Andy

I think you meant KZ3 & not MK3 ;)

 
Catkiller1 2 May, 2012 @ 2:54 pm   52

@ Andy

Also you state “Also the MK3 MP is not an error. It is part of the sale in the view that when you go to the sale area on the PSN Store, you will see this in there. Yes its a trial but it is still part of this campaign”.

Why put a comment like (Yes that’s correct, it costs €0.00!) then?

You’re digging yourself an even bigger hole!

Just face it, there was some sort of a mistake or you’re one confusing chap ;)

    Andy Stewart 2 May, 2012 @ 3:01 pm    

    I put €0.00 because otherwise everyone would question me about the price…

    I just can’t win as whatever I say someone will disagree…

    It’s in the sale area, so when you go to the Royale Sale it will be in there. its a trial, its free, you may already know that but other PSN members might not.

    But hey this has all sparked debate and kept you all on your toes and talking about it, so thats a good thing imo.

 
Catkiller1 2 May, 2012 @ 2:58 pm   53

Also i’m a bit jealous of the Mortal Kombat on VITA as it has some interesting features!

It was too expensive for me so I picked up a 3DS. I wanted some Nintendo back in my life, as most of my childhood was spent playing NES & Gameboy mostly, as a family!

 
Catkiller1 2 May, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   54

@ Andy

Fair enough, but it would have been easier to understand if you stated that it’s a Trial within the initial listing. Confusion would have been kept at bay ;)

Should have read: Killzone 3 Multiplayer Trial Was €0.00/£0.00/AUS$0.00 – Now €0.00/£0.00/AUS$0.00

Also, at least alot more members are aware of it now PMSL :)

    Andy Stewart 2 May, 2012 @ 3:13 pm    

    Touché CatKiller

    You are quite right with this and I will take it on board for next time.

    I really do apologies for all the confusion this.

 
MonkeyKing-X 2 May, 2012 @ 4:52 pm   55

you used a double scapegoat, why am I not surprised.

you guys do what you want, just sort my wallet out please

 
chrisandsheva 2 May, 2012 @ 5:42 pm   56

@ Andy,
Thanks for taking the time to explain to me regards my confusion over this post. It Does include interesting content i overlooked, ie the Twisted Metal classic, And (both) Fat princess games are also half price.. plus the psp vers.. Am not sure the rest of the stuff, Home items and the modnation dlc are That interesting.. true every penny counts in these times, But still i (personally) can’t see that many ppl being ‘that’ pleased for having cheaper access to them. But they’ll help… I suppose it was the list of GoW games that i couldn’t understand being called new sale etc.. plus though the Sly trilogy IS Very good value, it Was still only (very) recently on sale, for similar price… All in all though another welcomed addition to special offers.. so apologies for mistake.

 
MafiaCub 2 May, 2012 @ 5:44 pm   57

RE: Killzone

I think less fuss would have been made had the blog not written “YES! That’s right, it’s free!” next to the post, which gives the indication that you’re actually getting something that is worth money, when in reality it’s basically a demo.

Really does come off as Sony falsely advertising something as bigger than it is.

The actual sale item doesn’t help matter either, as when you highlight it (which I did, and wasted download space on too) it says “Trial and Unlock” which for those who don’t use the blog, I’m guessing they’d think it was the full thing. Why is the unlock listed as being part of it?

 
chrisandsheva 2 May, 2012 @ 6:04 pm   58

Also… IF the KZ3 (demo) is going to be in same section as other offers, Where will the unlock/upgrade key be, usually there together….. So If they appear together in the offers area of store then that will definately not bode, nor look well… both for stores layout And reasons Why it’s included in the sales list at the mistaken ‘free’ price, i hope it Dosn’t appear with it’s (Full-price) upgrade key…

 
Sergirt 2 May, 2012 @ 10:20 pm   59

Where is Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake for PSP :(? In the store the price is 30 € :(.

 
Catkiller1 3 May, 2012 @ 12:20 am   60

Sorry but i’m still not convinced on the KZ3 situation. To make matters worse the Trial description states Trial & Unlock!

Looks a bit suspicious to me that originally it was going to be included but someone made a mistake!

;)

Rex_33 3 May, 2012 @ 1:14 am   61

the price for “Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake” didn’t change and even more expensive which is $29.99 . I hope if you can fix this issue

 

Sweet sale! Sony should do more of these sales before launches of new games.

Sogeman 3 May, 2012 @ 9:27 pm   63

Totally offtopic and I probably won’t get an answer, but: Will we ever get Persona 3 FES on our store?

OHMSSl3 4 May, 2012 @ 12:55 am   64

Plz answer this for me Sony, how do you make something already free, free? Seems rediculous.
