Hi

Any chance of discounts on Super Stardust Delta or Wipeout on Vita?

Hahaha.

There was no Store update for the last 3 weeks.

There was no discount for Vita for Xmas unlike US Store.

There was nothing for Vita for the last month except two free games for Plus.

And you are saying me there’s nothing for Vita again in the new year Sale?

I am much surprised.

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 10:32 am    

    There will be a store update today from Jawad

    There may be a couple of VITA games added as the weeks progress but look out for a VITA specific sale in the future. It won’t be too long :)

 
dee4life4444 9 January, 2013 @ 10:11 am   3

Really good sale! One thing though. I plan on picking up a couple of these, particularly Spec Ops as I have PS+ but I am a bit weary that some of these may end up being in the instant game collection in the coming months and so would therefore be better waiting?? Can I get a response if possible? Many thanks!

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 10:33 am    

    Unfortunately I can’t really say what will and won’t be in the Instant Game Collection as we have to adhere to the deadlines we are set for announcement, sorry!

 
GigaBowser007 9 January, 2013 @ 10:12 am   4

Nice sale. However, if you want my money, you should add some Vita sales. I’ve barely touched my PS3 since I have a Vita.

 

This time wont buy anything untill fix the problem with motorstorm rc complete pack and pure chess sason bundle , i bought them in 20 december and they still not working on my ps vita and still no refund for them. Fix this than im gona think about buying anything on januray sale.

 
INS1GHTFUL 9 January, 2013 @ 10:14 am   6

borderlands is a good price but its a pity no vita games.
My request for future sales:
- Puddle (vita)
- Unfinished swan (not in a bundle!)

 

Any discount on the Black Ops 2 seaonal pass for ps + members seeming that xbox and american ps3 get for around £34 and we in the uk have to pay £42?

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 10:37 am    

    Season pass prices / discounts are something we are working on, they are just quite tricky to negotiate but leave it with us

 
homerjnick 9 January, 2013 @ 10:14 am   8

A discount of Harleys Revenge DLC for Batman Arkham City might be wise considering Batman AC was released for PS+ last month and the other DLC got a discount…just saying…

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 10:35 am    

    We tried to secure a discount on the Harleys Revenge DLC but unfortunately it was not possible and is unlikely to happen anytime soon

 

Does saint row the third also come with online pass if I brought the game please?

RagingAvatar 9 January, 2013 @ 10:16 am   10

Wow. What a rubbish sale.
It reads a lot like a GAME sale.
No discounted ICO & Shadow of the Colossus pack? Thanks :-/

 

Any sign of Resident Evil 2 workin on Vita yet or have you given up ?

 

Pretty meh sale. Good news for the wallet I guess.

Unless you plan on adding a non-bundled Unfinished Swan after the disappointing revelation during 12DoC for Journey owners

 

any chance of seeing a discount on the gravity rush dlc bundle?

 

“Hopefully there is something for everyone here…” except Vita owners! Another update with nothing on Vita. Great move!

 
luckysalt81 9 January, 2013 @ 10:22 am   15

really, thats the best you can do?

Are we EVER gunna get a sale on Walking Dead? Every other format has

 

Hi Chris,

Some good deals there.

It’s not relevant to this post so I won’t go into detail here, but I’ve got a problem with accessing BioShock 2 as part of my PS+ subscription. I’ve posted about it in more detail in your PS+ January content update post, comment #264-265. If you could check it out, it’d be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 11:29 am    

    I have forwarded the issue to our operations team as this is something they will need to look into, hopefully I will get a response very soon

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 12:46 pm    

    I have recieved a response from our operations team. The problem here occurs when a game that has full game trial enters Plus as a free game, moving forward if a game is going into plus we will remove it from the free game trial area for the duration that it is available in plus.

    To solve your issue they have stated that if you let the full game trial run till its conclusion, you should be able to purchase the full game afterwards.

    Please let me know if you have anymore issues

@Chris

Not really something for everyone if you only own a Vita.

You’re trolling Vita owners. That’s 6 out of 7 sales now with no Vita content.

@Fred

You said ‘hold tight’ regarding Vita sales. Do you mean until it’s first birthday in 6 weeks?

(puts poor Vita back in drawer)

 

For those asking this question: Digital game ALWAYS comes with online pass

 
AshishSahoo 9 January, 2013 @ 10:30 am   19

@Chris,
Can I look forward to a Gravity Rush dlc sale?
Also, happy new year to you!

 
PIREDERAS 9 January, 2013 @ 10:31 am   20

Sadly, nothing for me. I’ll wait for the next update of sales.

I’ve already got Borderlands via PS Plus for free, but I’ll think about the GOTY edition, in order to get the DLCs too for a good price.

Got Transformers: Fall of Cybertron too, but the DLC costume packs are ridiculous. They should have already been included in the main game, not being sold separately for €9 (and now on sale for €4,5) each. I’ll pass.

 

Noooooooooo really no vita love again I asked 3 weeks ago and u said u was workin on them and will not belong but still non befor crimo newyear and now jan. its a true shame sony do no care for the vita at all some good ps3 games tho

 

Every time Sony does a “sale”, I drift a little bit closer towards Steam…
Sorry Sony, but most of these “discounted” games cost less in – physical disc in box format – retail!

 
ShutenDoji23 9 January, 2013 @ 10:33 am   23

Not bad, but not amazing

 

Chris, why doesn’t Mafia 2 (Czech game)have Czech speech and dialogs, just like on the discs?

 

Hydrophobia Prophecy = not even free i wil download

i need fast some game like teraria ore minecraft = not 1 new game in europe in jan. = lame
ni no kuni = febr in europe :(
ragnorack odysee + soul sacrifice vita asap . news / video / demo release soon .

al other tings i like i already buy ful price day 1

i hope u update after 3 weeks = better , but i not tink ith wil .

 

Nothing For me… Where is motorsport games, sports games?????
Thank you sony very much.

 
XnoobsquadX 9 January, 2013 @ 10:47 am   27

Any clue if unit 13,resistance burning skies,smart as or touch my katamari will be included this sale? Would help my wallet allot:P

9# – it may come with an online pass bulit into the game or it may come with a 100kb online pass. i think chris mistok the online for season somehow?

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 11:33 am    

    Sorry yes I read through it too quickly, the online pass is included but the season pass is not

edwardccm 9 January, 2013 @ 11:04 am   29

As I do with every sale…

Wild ARMS PLEASEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

And Parasite Eve!!!

Turbine_inc 9 January, 2013 @ 11:05 am   30

sweet, now the prices are temporarily almost in line with retail prices but without the benefits

im such a mug ill go buy half of them immediately just because the price is less then it was

……..is how sony wants us to react to yet another joke sale, seriously everytime i see a new special offer it brings home to me just how stupid sony take us for

Turbine_inc 9 January, 2013 @ 11:09 am   31

lol complaints about vita, when will people learn….sony couldnt care less

it didnt sell as well as they wanted it to so there is very little support or new games

look at ps move
psp go

vita is just the next generation of sony failures that they sweep under the rug and forget about….after taking your money of course

 

“Leylifer
There was no Store update for the last 3 weeks.
There was no discount for Vita for Xmas unlike US Store.
There was nothing for Vita for the last month except two free games for Plus.

Chris Howe

@ Chris and others like Fred

Leylifer is right though. Early December EU blog mods said there would be PSVita deals added. We’re more than a full month later and it is still said to ‘wait a little bit longer’.

USA got an awesome Xmas deal discount. In America, even during Xmas time, updates EVERY week. What is SCEE doing? Promising and taking a 3 week holiday. And still nothing at the update 9th January. That next update better be really really good, especially for PSVita. I really don’t get what SCEE/Sony thinks, but COD on PSVita is such a bad game, they expected that it would drive a lot Xmas sales in EU? Support PSVita better dudes, before it is dead in the water! Only just over 4 mln units sold by now, a year later almost…

 
Michelasso 9 January, 2013 @ 11:12 am   33

Darksider II already super discounted?? Great!! Hopefully it will be for free soon on PS+!

(sorry. I’m broken).

Turbine_inc 9 January, 2013 @ 11:14 am   34

actually darksiders 2 isnt on the list, however, it was recently 4.99 in the steam sale so if it is added to this list, expect it to be around the 14.99 mark

 
Unicronic 9 January, 2013 @ 11:17 am   35

To clarify, is that Prototype 1 or 2 on sale? The former is a really old game to have in a New Year Sale.

 

Move sale please!

 

1 ting i realy like =
usa say euro get beter deals
euro says usa get beter deals = hahahahahaha

u gone have the same problem if u not make 1 shop + lounch u games world wide to al u consumers ( same time = +- 1 month if loth traslation ).

 
FitzYarox 9 January, 2013 @ 11:23 am   38

Please could you include Kingdoms of Amalur : Reckoning in the sale? Pretty please :)

 
TheNudgeMan 9 January, 2013 @ 11:23 am   39

@ Chris:

Not a bad sale, I may pick one or two things up!

A few quick questions…

Is there any way possible that Transformers: War For Cybertron will ever appear on PSN?

Any chance of Dark Souls DLC going on sale at any stage?

Will EU be getting Demon’s Souls like USA did?
I own the game on disc, but haven’t played much of it. If it went on PSN, surely the already quite busy multiplayer would experience a boom and would entice me to jump in head-first!

Thanks.

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 11:39 am    

    I’m afraid I don’t have any news regarding Transformers on PSN and yes I’m sure that at some point in the near future Dark Souls DLC will be on sale I can’t confirm when though

 

Got to agree with:

“Turbine_inc
lol complaints about vita, when will people learn….sony couldnt care less
it didnt sell as well as they wanted it to so there is very little support or new games
look at ps move
psp go”

He is partly right. Think before you release hardware and do promises Sony. I bought a Move and it hardly gets support. Good I never was interested in the PSPGo. And I have to say, PSVita gets pretty good support in games (line up is more interesting than 3DS IMO), but Sony really has to understand that to sell hardware, it doesn’t just have to be good hardware and think people will jump in. You gotta constantly market, push it and make it interesting to buy that PSVita. That includes the support on PS+. The instant game collection was pretty good with an impressive start and then you lose momentum by skipping the important December month pretty much totally, well into January now. So instead of that ‘comes soon’ and ‘won’t be too long from now’ for that PSVita sale, can you at least give a date when it’ll actually be here?

Huono_peleis 9 January, 2013 @ 11:24 am   41

Spec Ops: The Line now 25€. It’s 5€ on Steam.

 
sterushton 9 January, 2013 @ 11:26 am   42

I am sure both Microsoft and Steam had the Borderlands 2 season pass on sale. Disappointing that we get a Borderlands 1 sale!

 

@9 Yes it comes with the online pass.

the mod thought you meant season pass.

Online pass YES

season pass NO

well worth it at that price.

 

41 Huono_peleis
sony – steam are 2 diferent companies
but i say sony need to look beter ath real prices in real store
+ ath other companies like steam/xbox live/ orgins/ u play ….
wen same game =2 € en sony psn sels ath 6/10 € = bad advertising to( from ) sony

TheMART
also to consoles = leser ( ps2 not powerful like xbox ) but wins by cheap + lots suport.( i pers. tink sony need to go more to ps2 model on ps4 – also on ps vita )

 

Last tip blog mods:

You will prevent people getting irritated by MANAGING EXPECTATIONS. One of the basics that defines leadership and having a vision. People mostly get disappointed because they expect something, as the details of something are too vague. Learn to do that right, for example like just said giving more specific dates when stuff can be expected, or at least a period of a certain month, and you’ll have less negative comments on this blog. Just a tip… Oh, and you can hire me for an improved marketing on PSVita and have it sell better as I work in the marketing sector :-)

 

Nothing for Vita ? 3 weeks in to my first PS product from Xbox and things don’t look that cool for my little handheld.

 

Any chance of Walking Dead on sale soon … as XBOX users have been bragging for a while now

 
Chocobo115 9 January, 2013 @ 11:33 am   48

Aww, was hoping on Okami HD & Street Fighter X Tekken Character Unlock key to go on sale as a late birthday present. Not interested in any of the items on sale today :(

 
dark_angel69 9 January, 2013 @ 11:35 am   49

Hi Chris

Would it be possible to get Rocksmith songs on sale?

    Chris Howe 9 January, 2013 @ 11:46 am
