I just did a spit take at my screen at how low borderlands 2 and it’s season pass was, I was expecting about £10 off of the game and a couple of quid off the season pass but this is pretty brilliant, Kudos!

 
Nicko_McBrain 16 January, 2013 @ 12:04 pm   2

Nothing I’m interested in. Not too bad though, still busy with Persona 4 Golden.

 
Catkiller1 16 January, 2013 @ 12:10 pm   3

Sports Champions 2 for me :)

 

The season pass discount looks worth it. More like this please.

 

Hey lads great discounts can use try and discount mirrors edge or add it to instant game collection for ps plus brilliant game thanks :) and add tekken 4 thanks :)

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:33 pm    

    Unlikely for IGC as there are lots of stakeholders invovled in Mirrors Edge but you never know! I will see if we can get a discount on it at least :)

 

Is everybody’s golf world tour on vita or ps3?

Any word on a discount for unfinished swan?

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:44 pm    

    its the PS3 version

    Unfinished Swan will not be discounted in the Jan sale but it is in the pipeline, thats all I can say at the moment I’m afraid

ironmonkey88 16 January, 2013 @ 12:12 pm   7

awesome price for sports champions 2, was think of getting at the original price – now a must buy when i get home. Good stuff

 

Glad to see some Vita loving :) (even though I got all the games)

Probably take a look at Sports Champions…

 

Hi Chris,

is it possible to see “The Directors Cut” Escape Plan DLC get’s a discount?
Like 30% or 50% off?

I want to buy it but not at the 5€ price point.

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:45 pm    

    I have put in a request for it, I am waiting for the studio to come back to me, will let you know as soon as I do

 
Chocobo115 16 January, 2013 @ 12:17 pm   10

*Closes eyes and concentrates really hard*
I summon thee Okami HD half price sale and Street Fighter X Tekken DLC characters 50% sale!
*Opens eyes and see one of the most unimpressive sales ever*
Sorry I think something went wrong with my spell :(

 

“Table Ice Hockey (PS Vita)

LOL and that is all the love PSVita gets?

After the great SCEA Xmas sale? Really? They had LittleBigPlanet Vita for PS+ members for around 18 USD

They had Escape Plan with a 50% discount for about 7.50 bucks.

Lame sales are lame. Thanks for officially declaring the PSVita dead in the water in EU folks. Was this what Chris pointed towards PSVita sales ‘coming soon’? If this is it, rather do none.

 
XnoobsquadX 16 January, 2013 @ 12:18 pm   12

Nice to see season pass borderlands 2 yay.
However ”scratches head” looking at the vita sale added this week im kinda wondering why u’d put up a sale for a augmented reality game that allrdy cost next to nothing=/

 

Hey.

How about a sale for The Walkig dead season.
I read that on X360 it was discounted so it is aobut time we had it discounted too.

 
xxSamuraiGirlxx 16 January, 2013 @ 12:21 pm   14

great price for borderlands 2 season pass.

finally something i want to buy in a sale that’s at a decent price.

 
luckysalt81 16 January, 2013 @ 12:22 pm   15

@6 – Everybodys Golf is PS3 – £4.67 for plus users and is 7.5gig size

 

newest dlc borderlands 2 also cheap i see on psn , i tink mistake , lol

 
sterushton 16 January, 2013 @ 12:24 pm   17

Brilliant Borderlands 2 discounts. More like this please.

I’ll give you a tenner for Doom 3!

 

Seriously do you guys even care about Vita owners this is pathetic. A few AR games (yawn) and some ancient psp games that have vita versions available. I was expecting something good this week. Vita is destined for failure I will wait till games are in the bargain bin at game store. It shouldn’t be long.

 
luckysalt81 16 January, 2013 @ 12:25 pm   19

Retro City Rampage has been added to store – its £8.99

 
Catkiller1 16 January, 2013 @ 12:27 pm   20

Sports Champions 2 is 3.5GB

Also i’ve just found out that Mad Dog McCree will be releasing soon & it will be ‘MOVE’ only! Can’t wait for that one!

The Cave will be £9.99 & will release next week!

 
luckysalt81 16 January, 2013 @ 12:27 pm   21

How come DLC for WWE Wrestlefest has been added to the store today

https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/en-gb/games/addons/wwe-wrestlefest-wwe-tag-team-champions-pack-/cid=EP1005-NPEB00896_00-WRESFESTDLCKEY01

Yet we don’t even have the game?????????

 
QuietlyWrong 16 January, 2013 @ 12:28 pm   22

Some lovely deals there… but…

Can you please NOT put PSP Everybody’s Golf 1 and Everybody’s Golf 2 together in the sale?

In fact, I don’t know why you sell Everybody’s Golf [1] (PSP) at all because EG2 contains EVERYTHING that EG1 contains and more besides. Anyone who buys both is *guaranteed* to feel short-changed by the purchase of the first game.

Just sell the sequel! (Great game, by the way… ;))

 
DAVEGADGETBOY 16 January, 2013 @ 12:28 pm   23

Question, are we gonna be gettin retro city rampage for free on ps plus anytime soon???

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:53 pm    

    We are not able to discuss the Instant Games Collection, but if you take a read of the RCR blog post and replies from the developer you should get a good idea

 

luckysalt81
jes + borderlands sir hammerlock dlc ( same price like other deals on older dlc )

stil i love new hr them are updating = lots beter ( so i enyoy until i need to whork )

 
SERGEANT-Q6R 16 January, 2013 @ 12:29 pm   25

Hi Chris Howe
I have question
Why some DLC not available in QATAR

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:55 pm    

    This can be for numerous reasons such as actual product development, localisation, rating…… If there is something you are specifically interested in I can look into it for you

 

Not beeing funny but waited for vita love for 4 weeks over and over u say we working on it and this is it lol I no feb is the vitas bday but US had loads on sale already and u can bet they will in feb to so y do we have to keep waiting that vita sale there is a sham mixed with the EDF ripoff today to and price changes im blown away by the lack of anything for the EU u must realy think of us as true mugs.on the outher hand tho the borderland sale is good and worth a look at roll on next year carnt wate to be rid of u sony and I no alot of people here feel the same

 

So this is all PS Vita get? Two crappy mini games and a bunch of old PSP games? Wooow

 
MissDreamer 16 January, 2013 @ 12:31 pm   28

I’m gonna get me the Borderlands 2 season pass on Friday. I’m so glad I waited to get this, I almost got it last week. Thanks.:)

 
luckysalt81 16 January, 2013 @ 12:31 pm   29

They’ve said on twitter today vita sale will be in Feb

 
Catkiller1 16 January, 2013 @ 12:33 pm   30

@ luckysalt81

The same thing happened with Dance Magic last week & it was removed???? No mention as to why it was removed & I was told by Jawad that he would look into it!

 
CoolRichy008UK 16 January, 2013 @ 12:33 pm   31

DAVEGADGETBOY retro city rampage wobt be free for ps plus because he needs the money it took him 3 years to make the game you know if you dont like it cuz the game wont be free dont cry LOL

Any luck on Bioshock 1 Chris?
Sorry to bother, im not gonna play 2 till i get 1, and im not spending so much on 1 :P

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:57 pm    

    Sorry no update at the moment, I will keep chasing! understand the frustration though!

 

Thanks guys!
Love the Borderlands 2 discounts and will probably buy the season pass :D

BTW, I’ve recently been reading through some of the comments on the US psn blog and it’s a shame to see how people complaint about the EU content here when all I see in the US comment section is how jealous they are and how great the EU service is.
I agree :)

 
luckysalt81 16 January, 2013 @ 12:35 pm   34

@31 its on there now, £8.99

 
Catkiller1 16 January, 2013 @ 12:35 pm   35

@ CoolRichy008UK

Already bought it ;)

 
DAVEGADGETBOY 16 January, 2013 @ 12:36 pm   36

@ 31, if he needs the money then why did the us store get it as a psplus freebie

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 1:59 pm    

    Thats a question you can ask him in his blog, please remember this is a sale blog

 
homerjnick 16 January, 2013 @ 12:40 pm   37

I have posted this many times but you CANNOT sell PAIN in the EU as the developers bust it and refuse to fix it…they released a patch for the Move Controller and it breaks certain levels IF you do not have a move controller plugged in.

I have logged a call with Sony PS Store Support and posted on the official EU forums. I posted this when you had DLC in sale but now you are selling the game at a discount when it DOESN’T WORK!!!!

 
DazzaUK1985 16 January, 2013 @ 12:42 pm   38

omg what a discount on the borderlands 2 season pass!! I am ready to have your babies!!! Thanks sooooo much haha

 

@ 38

Hahahahaha!
All the ladies say I’m the fastest ride in town! Aaaaw I just realized I insulted myself.

 
Catkiller1 16 January, 2013 @ 12:47 pm   40

Fingers crossed that Wrestlefest releases today & not another delay like Dance Magic!

 

pretty awful prices, given that things from years ago rarely if evver permenantly drop in price to be even realistic to shops initial price, let alone the current accepted market price, things (inc DLC) should always drop by a set % after a few months, if you want digital downloads to even stand a chance, or keep interest away from the SteamBox o_o.
this sale, sucks =/.

@The Mart

Hi bud (fellow exasperated vita owner)

I think sale is coming on 1st Birthday at the end of February. We’ve to ‘hold tight’.

I see you quote regularly about LBP & Escape Plan in US sales at Xmas. You might have too been busy over Xmas to notice, but here’s the full deals the US got:(all Plus prices)

LBP $17, Escape Plan $10, Rayman $14, Everybody’s Golf $9, MGS HD $17.14, Unit 13 $17.49, Sound Shapes $7.35, Katamari $12.25, Lumines $17.49.

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation was $23 in a ‘Flash Sale’ and Shadow of the Collossus (for remote play) was $9.80.

Let’s wait it out together buddy (and fellow Vita owners)

Peace.

 
dark_angel69 16 January, 2013 @ 12:52 pm   43

Hi Chris

Great update this week.

I’m interested in Borderlands 2 and the season pass. Would the price for both be around £31.50?

I’m wondering to myself if I should get this now or wait for a GoTY edition to get all the dlc but this offer seems too good to miss out.

Second question, Is the Rocksmith deal still happening this week?

Just a little reminder here was your reply last week:
“There will be three Rocksmith packs on sale for Plus members from the 16th January for 2 weeks. There will be 20% the classics pack, the metalgear + megadeth pack and the alternative rock pack”

Thanks

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:10 pm    

    hello,

    The price for the two would be £31.98, pretty good deal if you ask me. I can’t really comment on the GoTY edition pricing though I don’t know anything about it at the moment

    Yeah the rocksmith deal starts today, there is a slight change to my comment last week the discount will be off the classics pack, the alternative rock pack and the metal pack

    Sorry for any confusion

 
windsorblue01 16 January, 2013 @ 12:58 pm   44

@Catkiller1 yes it is just look in released this week section

Hey Chris, Why Every Single Everybody’s Golf game (including PSP, PS3 ones) are in discount but not the Vita one, can you tell me please?

Thank you.

By the way, now i have PS Vita Sale section in PS Store and these are the games (all them are 1 to 4 bucks games):

- Table Ice Hockey
- Table Top Tanks
- Everybody’s Golf (PSP)
- Everybody’s Golf 2 (PSP)
- Everybody’s Tennis (PSP)

What a great catalogue, lol.

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:11 pm    

    Because a potential VITA sale would have no content if we discounted it all in the January sale

 
windsorblue01 16 January, 2013 @ 1:01 pm   46

@dark_angel69 there is indded the deal for 3 rocksmith packs opn the store seen about 20 mins ago

 
Paranoimia 16 January, 2013 @ 1:02 pm   47

Is the Mafia II Additional Content Bundle *all* of the DLC for the game, or just a few select pieces?

 
mrblack343 16 January, 2013 @ 1:03 pm   48

NO Everybody’s Golf Vita? Could you please make that happen, Chris?

 
richie_in_japan 16 January, 2013 @ 1:05 pm   49

Confusing new store layout caused me to buy RPG Collection because I thought it had Persona 3 in it. Haven’t downloaded either game yet. Any way to cancel the transaction and get a refund?

 
Jestersoil 16 January, 2013 @ 1:08 pm   50

BORDERLANDS 2 SEASON PASS 15.00 EURO???
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY :D

 

Does Borderlands GOTY edition include the game itself? I downloaded it via PS PLUS while it was a part of instant collection few months ago and bought GOTY edition today. However there is still expiration date for the game.

 
European_Gamer 16 January, 2013 @ 1:11 pm   52

I read somewhere that Atlus where having a sale on the EU PSN store with 50% off all the prices today.

If it’s true, why is it not on the list?

 
yoyo-1414 16 January, 2013 @ 1:14 pm   53

Will Catherine be a part of the sale?

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:22 pm    

    No not in the January sale, I have put in a request for a discount on this so hopefuly we will be able to secure one, it is not always possible though

 
dominater444 16 January, 2013 @ 1:15 pm   54

nice deals!now i hope we get to see the Sly Cooper thieves in time demo for PS+ next week!Like the US is getting it next week because i cant wait anymore! :) Sly FTW & 70 days left!

 

Hey Chris,

Dunno if you would handle this, but the price is a bit off for Borderlands 2 in the ZA store.

Everything else seems right.

Usually, works out to roughly 1 Euro = R10
The DLC and the Season pass, and everything else for last few months work like this, except border lands 2 now.

R339 when its 2.99 Euro.

Not the end of the world, still worth it, but could this be a mistake? Maybe your ZA liaison is taking a little extra cut this time?

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:36 pm    

    It’s all a little complicated but it is all to do with the discount and exchange rates but I will ask the store team to look into it just to double check

 

Edit on 55:

“Usually, works out to roughly 1 Euro = R10″

Does anyone know if Everybodys golf world tour comes complete with the up to date patches for multiplayer. I have been unable to update using its abysmal update system for years and it would be worth that price just to get multiplayer back.

And on a similar note, would my current save be compatible?

 
MonkeyBrainsToo 16 January, 2013 @ 1:23 pm   58

Borderlands 2 season pass for me. Awesome discount, thank you.

 
dark_angel69 16 January, 2013 @ 1:33 pm   59

@windsorblue01

Thanks for your reply mate. Must go on store and check it out now

 
windsorblue01 16 January, 2013 @ 1:39 pm   60

why has plus got the same theme in plus but for the psp this time when are we getting some new avatrs ?

 

@johnnyquicknives your single player save might be ok but your online profile will probably reset, i upgraded to a slim when they came out and it reset my online profile even though i transferred everything from my 60gb to the slim. Kinda put me off playing it then, might pick it up for this price, great game. Ya the updates are pretty bad,nearly as bad as metal gear online was.

 
Shadiest187 16 January, 2013 @ 1:43 pm   62

Wanted to pick up The Darkness 2 & Spec Ops: The Line but the extra PS Plus discount has disappeared from Spec Ops since the FW update for the Store… Any idea why Chris?

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:43 pm    

    As the post above says they have come out of the sale today. This happens when the store update is completed so this has already taken place

 
dark_angel69 16 January, 2013 @ 1:44 pm   63

@Chris

Forgot to add in a request for Assassins creed 3 Season pass earlier if that’s possible to get on deal.

 
Nemeth050506 16 January, 2013 @ 1:47 pm   64

Hey, after I was upset about the discounts of the last week I`m very excited about this week`s discounts. Finally there are some Vita-Discounts and I’ll buy some of them. But you should go on with the discounts for vita!!!
For example you could also start a PSP-Sale with games that a playable on both systems like Persona, 3rd Birthday or Final Fantasy IV. I never owned a PSP and it would be great to catch up and play some of PSP Games ;)
PS:The discount for Borderlands 2 and the Season Pass are great either.

Thanks for including some Vita games in the sale. I know we’ve moaned quite a lot recently, so glad to see you have listed to us!!!!

I do not have any of the games, and at under 3 quid for 3 games (plus the free mobile game) you can’t go wrong.

 
squidward88 16 January, 2013 @ 1:51 pm   67

I have bought the table top tanks pack a while back and I have never been able to download it, no download button had ever appeared on screen.

 
CoolRichy008UK 16 January, 2013 @ 1:52 pm   68

Nightmare966 16 January, 2013 @ 1:52 pm   69

I must say that the discounts for Borderlands 2 are really impressive, Chris :)

Do you think you can manage anything for WipEout 2048 (Vita) as either a discount in the Vita sale or as part of the Plus IGC?

 

Hey Chris, I bought Spec Ops: The Line on this sale, and even though I am a PS Plus member since day one, I didn’t get the 10% discount

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:46 pm    

    Did you buy it today? this title was taken out of the sale today. If not please contact customer service as they will be able to help

 
supersmith2500 16 January, 2013 @ 2:00 pm   71

Just AR games for Vita? Weak, I’ll wait for a better Vita sale next month.

 
IcelandicOps 16 January, 2013 @ 2:00 pm   72

I had no idea that Everybody’s Golf had Move support – Does that work with the disk version as well? I haven’t played it for a while so maybe it has been patched? I’m trying to figure out if I should download the complete edition, for that price it seems almost worth it

 

thx for nothing. in Russia Borderlands 2 1500р (£ 30 / € 38)

 
Catkiller1 16 January, 2013 @ 2:12 pm   74

@ CoolRichy008UK

LOL, yeah nice one, I bought it at 12:33 using the web store function! ;)

@ windsorblue01

I don’t see WrestleFest, just some DLC for it, no full game :(

SuperUnknown79 16 January, 2013 @ 2:14 pm   75

@coolrichey sorry to disappoint but I downloaded it 50 minutes ago & it already had several user ratings by then!

 
windsorblue01 16 January, 2013 @ 2:16 pm   76

@ CoolRichy008UK it was just a fast look didnt click on it it might have been just dlc i just looked in ps3 games new this week the one where there is about 55 items at the moment sory if i got you hopes up i just saw wrestlefest

 
windsorblue01 16 January, 2013 @ 2:16 pm   77

meant Catkiller1 not CoolRichy008UK

 

Chris , expiration date for borderlands is the same as for my current PS Plus subscription

 

Chris, any The Walking Dead or LA Noire discount in the future?

 

Why is Virtue’s Last Reward showing under January sale with no discount on it? Put at least 20% (+another 10% for PS+) and I’ll buy it in a heart beat …

 

Hi Chris, I already own Borderlands 2 and the season pass and would recommend others to pick it up at this bargain price. Also a question, Borderlands was part of the IGC last year so any chance of the DLC being in the sale separately as well as the GOTY version? Thanks.

 

Hi guys,

Great discounts, fantastic reductions on Borderlands 2!

But, I have to have a moan (bear with me)…

I bought the Season Pass for Borderlands 2 not long after release for £19.99.

At that time two of the DLC covered by the pass were already available for £7.99 each, so presuming the two DLC packs which were yet to be released would be priced similarly, I considered that paying £20 for £32 worth of content was good value. I went ahead and paid my money in good faith.

Now, the Season Pass has been reduced to £11.99 (fantastic value if you don’t already have it!) and the two DLCs covered by it are now £5.49 each with two yet to be released. This means that presumably the value of the two future DLC packs will be around £5.49 each, making the total value of the content covered by the pass around £22 if it were to be bought separately. My primary reason for buying in advance has just evaporated; a £3 saving ain’t quite so attractive as a £12 one!

 

My “beef” is this: I haven’t even received the four DLC packs I have paid for before the prices have been slashed. Had I known this would happen, I would not have been so inclined to part with my money so far in advance as I could have just bought the packs individually at the time of release for around a fiver each.

I’m certain I’m not the only person who this applies to so I felt it needed a mention.

To those of you who don’t already have Borderlands 2 and the Season Pass: Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!! It’s excellent value!! :D

 

“Hey guys! You asked for Vita sales? We have plenty of those this week! Look here … hey, wait! Where is everyone going to?”

Well, at least Borderlands 2 Season Pass should interest some people. Guess better than nothing. And I like those additional Plus discounts all around, good job there.

But seriously, where are those damn Plus avatars? 2 or 3 months now without any update. Chris has been asked dozens of times meanwhile. Fred promised twice to contact him too. And yet, he still dodges every single question and hasn’t dropped a single word on the topic. Not to mention not any avatars either.

God I miss Ross, that guy was far less complicated. You asked politely, you got a reply. You reported an issue or mistake, he at least confirmed it and if possible tried to solve it.

What is so damn complicated about those tiny avatars that you can’t even say “Oops, my mistake. Other things had priority. Sorry, won’t happen again.”

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 2:53 pm    

    avatars are not a priority for Plus at the moment, we are working on them but we would prefer to work on trying to secure excellent content for the Plus service first

 

so are we getting wrestlefest today what times the heads up?

 

Angry Birds Triology is showed in the psvita sectin. You should take it away.

 

See Chris, I can accept that and most others probably too. As long as the games are indeed great. ;)
I won’t even mention in detail that the WB games haven’t been great (with the exception of Batman of course), haha.

Another question. If you change avatars being a standard part of the Plus content, did anything change about the rotation too?
30.1 we should receive another 2 PS3 games in that 4 week rotation, yet nothing had been mentioned for that date in the announcement of the January content. Do we still get 2 games then and you’ll just announce them together with the other February content? Or did the rotation model change?

    Chris Howe 16 January, 2013 @ 3:44 pm    

    I am trying to get it to a situation where we can drop in content on a more regular basis so you are all getting something fresh almost weekly but this will take time as we have existing contracts to complete.

    We will be providing more details of the Feb content soon but I wil say that the next drop will be Feb 6th not 30th Jan

 
Player42791 16 January, 2013 @ 3:13 pm   88

@Chris

Any chance the Kingdoms of Amalur DLC will be in this sale or another sale any time soon?

 

PulzAR is listed in the sale yet it isn’t on the store – not through the ps3 and not through the vita. Any reason why it was removed?

Virtue’s Last Reward is listed in the plus discounts section yet there is no discount

Also is it possible that Sound Shapes will be in the next sale?

 

Borderlands 2 Season Pass…oh yes, thank-you very much for this.
Guaranteed sale on that here.
I’m almost tempted to trade-in my Blu-Ray and buy the digital verion of the game too….almost.

hitman_stephen 16 January, 2013 @ 3:53 pm   91

Going to get table top tanks!
Been tempted to get it since it was released but had to many other games to play, but for less than a £1, cant go wrong! XD

Jamesyp00 16 January, 2013 @ 3:55 pm   92

@MikLSP I was debating the same thing with my copy too, even more so since they said there possibly working on a second season as well. Tempting!

 

Thank you for the reply Chris Howe. I think you should mention that shift in the rotation model when you announce the February content.
As long as we see improvement and you are open about changes, people should usually accept it. And it is always better to be solve that via direct communication than to let your customers uncertain. And several will simply expect that the old rotation is still in action.

another_gamer195 16 January, 2013 @ 4:35 pm   94

This is both good news (selfishly for me) and bad news, the Borderlands2 Season pass, firstly i am getting it, But i think it is wrong that i can, at that price so soon after it’s release. The people who’ve paid full price Still haven’t had all their content yet, But it’s allready nearly half price, that must hurt, i am sure there is older dlc/season pass, that you could of put up and would be met with similar approval, from customers, but i guess you’ve got something going on atm with 2K/publisher, getting the 1st Borderlands GoTY ed last week, now this. IF people are now going to see dlc’s or season passes on sales so early, i really doubt they’d be eager to risk buying any future dlc’s (or Games) for fear of seeing it drop in price, probably before they’ve even Started Their full priced versions, i guess i am saying, Yeah, brilliant offer, But your going to be sorry, as it Will make lots of future buyers too ‘weary’ to buy, Similar to the IGC ‘waiters’, ie people who’ve bought a Game only to see it added to plus. once, maybe twice bitten, forever shy, Still i bow to your marketing teams superior knowledge, as they obviously know something i/we don’t.

 
AeonsDead 16 January, 2013 @ 4:42 pm   95

What would be really good would be to have the Black Ops 2 season pass on discount. Or possibly the resident evil games.

 
Anilusion 16 January, 2013 @ 4:43 pm   96

Awesome sale so far, but do you have any plans on putting Motorstorm RC (Complete?) on sale? Loved the demo but I want to know if I’m safe to buy it now or if you’re having to have it on sale soon. Thanks!

 
AeonsDead 16 January, 2013 @ 4:53 pm   97

Just noticed, PulzAR doesn’t appear on the PSVita store.

In addition there are a whole bunch of mini’s (not mentioned here) on discount under the “PS Vita Plus” section.

Furthermore under Vita Sale there are 5 items, missing some of the ones mentioned here.

 

Any chance of Valkyria Chronicals 2 going on sale?

 
LittleBigSylph 16 January, 2013 @ 5:05 pm   99

Will there be a discount on The Walking Dead anytime soon? I could have bought it when it was on sale on Steam, but I prefer my PS3. It has been on sale on all other platforms already, just not on PSN.

 
Voodoo341 16 January, 2013 @ 5:07 pm   100

No Unfinished Swan. SCEE are completely useless.

iskeledz 16 January, 2013 @ 5:12 pm   101

Totally unrelated to the sale:
Why is there STILL no Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 9 on the Croatian PS Store??? All the other games are there!

 
Basket21 16 January, 2013 @ 6:13 pm   102

Does the dlc for sports champions 1-2 work with the digital version?

else i wont be replacing my disk versions

 
Stefarno88 16 January, 2013 @ 6:17 pm   103

I asked on last weeks sale thread but didn’t get a reply.

Is World Snooker Championship 2005 available in the UK? I can’t find it on the store anywhere.

    Chris Howe 17 January, 2013 @ 9:20 am    

    sorry for the late reply, yes it is available for the UK but agree that is not showing up on the store so I have flagged it with store operations

Jamesyp00 16 January, 2013 @ 6:35 pm   104

Is there any chance of the DLC for saints row 3 coming up on offer too?

    Chris Howe 17 January, 2013 @ 9:22 am    

    its not going to be discounted in the January sale but we are working on a Plus discount for it. It is a little difficult at the moment given the situation for THQ but hopefully they will be ok soon :)

Is there a possibility of Siren going on sale or coming to PS+ anytime soon?

 
supersmith2500 16 January, 2013 @ 8:03 pm   106

Seriously why Pain in the sale? That is nothing but broken and one of it’s levels just won’t load ta all which is Abusement Park and the dev won’t even bother releasing a patch.

Also, just 3 AR games and Everybody Sports games for PSP is all what the Vita’s got. I hope next week has better Vita games. *sigh*

 
supersmith2500 16 January, 2013 @ 8:05 pm   107

‘Your comment is awaiting moderation.’

*sigh* hate it when it happens. Only trying to explaining why Pain is a broken game. -__-

 
Skydancerx 16 January, 2013 @ 8:15 pm   108

Wow what an Update:
Since Move Games getting really Cheap here in some Stores (Sorcery 10 Euro!!) it time to get some on PSN! For me its Sports Champions 2 and Move Fitness. And i think about the all Time Sale Game “Everbodys Golf” ok now its cheaper than ever :)

 

Hi Chris. Once again some good games on sale! I have just downloaded Table Top Tanks and Table Ice Hockey for the PS Vita, but I cannot find PulzAR anywhere on the PS Vita Store and the PS3 Store for download for the PS Vita. Is anyone else having the same problem and could you please look into correcting this? Thanks!

legolas1legolas 16 January, 2013 @ 9:34 pm   110

Ps vita minigames on sale…This is really ridiculous. As long as Chris works for Sony I’m not going to buy anything in store!!

 

Hi.

Please answer my question.

Is there a platinum trophy for Everybody’s Golf World Tour Complete?

Thank you very much.

 
nezhet10 16 January, 2013 @ 11:42 pm   112

@The Mart
Hi bud (fellow exasperated vita owner)
I think sale is coming on 1st Birthday at the end of February. We’ve to ‘hold tight’.
I see you quote regularly about LBP & Escape Plan in US sales at Xmas. You might have too been busy over Xmas to notice, but here’s the full deals the US got:(all Plus prices)
LBP $17, Escape Plan $10, Rayman $14, Everybody’s Golf $9, MGS HD $17.14, Unit 13 $17.49, Sound Shapes $7.35, Katamari $12.25, Lumines $17.49.
Assassin’s Creed: Liberation was $23 in a ‘Flash Sale’ and Shadow of the Collossus (for remote play) was $9.80.
Let’s wait it out together buddy (and fellow Vita owners)
Peace”

Eh no, lets not wait out. As USA will also get a PSVita 1st Anniversary sales moment with deals. And they already got Xmas deals. So they’ll get double and for EU they promised early december ‘soon’ for PSVita and that soon means 2 months of waiting for them. Pathetic. A good start with the instant game collection, after that only PS3 deals. Its stupid, dumb and far too late, period. PSVita only has 4 mln units sold world wide in its first year for now. Thats bad and this lack of push by deals doesn’t help.

 

Where is PulzAR gone off the store?? Wanted to grab it whilst on sale but its disappeared.

    Chris Howe 17 January, 2013 @ 9:12 am    

    You are correct, I can’t seem to find it either. I have flagged it with the operations team so hopefully it should be back on there in a couple of hours

 
redmattuk 17 January, 2013 @ 8:52 am   115

ReZonanZ_44 17 January, 2013 @ 9:26 am   116

Hello,this is my first post here!
I have 2 small requests
First,I just bought “Pain” and I was wondering if there is a chance that the dlc for will get a discount as well?Also I have read in a previous post that one of the dlc(abusement park) is broken.is that true?
My second request is a discount for plants vs zombies…
I hope that I will read some good news(“fingers crossed”) !!

 
Envirasu 17 January, 2013 @ 10:21 am   117

Due to being low on funds, I swore that I wouldn’t buy anything from this sale, but I didn’t anticipate the Borderlands 2 Season Pass discount. I may have also bought the Mechromancer DLC as well… Oops.

Thanks, Chris! Great work on the sale.

 
Alan2112 17 January, 2013 @ 10:46 am   118

@YYujiY it doesn’t have any trophy’s, unfortunately it was originally released before trophy’s were enforced and never got a trophy patch but don’t let that put you off as its such a good game. I have heard that the Vita version is getting a PS3 port, if that happens it will have trophy’s,

Was thinking about buying borderlands 2. Do i get online pass with this or do i buy separate

 
Alan2112 17 January, 2013 @ 11:20 am   120

Actually that everybody’s golf port might only be for Japan/ Hong Kong, just been to the HK store and it’s up there for download. Alsa noticed that RCR if free for plus members of HK, more of it now.

@ pugcool all download games come with network pass.

 
rodrigo1UP 17 January, 2013 @ 11:46 am   121

No love for PS VITA owners =(

I could not help noticing that Virtue’s Last Reward is included on the discount page with no discount, I hope it gets some love on the next batch.

PIREDERAS 17 January, 2013 @ 11:54 am   122

Although I am quite happy with the PSN, I wish to complain about Borderlands GOTY!!!!!

I had firstly received the game freely via PS Plus back in July. I bought yesterday in the morning the GOTY edition for the reduced price of €10,79, and I can’t play the DLC. They are nowhere to be found. After the download and installation is complete, the file size of the game is still about 3,5 GB (instead of 7,7 GB with the addition of the 4 DLCs), and it still says I can play it for another 350 or so days (I deduce it is still recognised by the console as a Plus title). I even tried to re-download everything and as I write this message, the situation is still unchanged.

I want to protest about it, because I am supposed to have bought not only the DLCs, but the main game too, and it shouldn’t read anything about any remaining days in the game. I wish a solution, either a reimburse or a fix of the issue.

Cool ty my girlfriend is saving for holiday so money is rare for the time being

 
redmattuk 17 January, 2013 @ 4:52 pm   124

@Chris Howe thanks for the reply. What are my respective odds on:
Max Payne 3?
Rayman?
LBP Karting?
Binary Domain?
NFS The Run?
CARS 2?
Child of Eden?
Any of the FEAR games?

being free within the next 12 months?

Thanks!!

Hey Chris, I have a problem. I’ve purchased Mafia II + DLC Bundle from the last week sale and I can’t access any of the DLC. Furthermore, when I go to in-game menu part “Downloadable Content” there’s the same bundle, but redirecting me to the PSS Store to buy it again! Hope to hear from you.

 
TheMassMonster 19 January, 2013 @ 5:27 pm   129

My english might not be the best but here i go.

I am dissapointed, i am one of those gamers that buys very very much games, often day1 and buy a lot of dlc, a costumer that puts a lot of money to Sony.

I have had psn+ for one year and already paid for another year, i remember one time when i bought a mappack to MW3 and the day after it was half price, that felt not good so i emailed the swedish support for sony and the answer was that the could not do anything, and now i felt this again, i bought the season pass for Borderlands 2 at full price and now with psn+ i could have got it for half the price, WHY am i punished because i buy games and dlc at release?

A lot of my hard earnings goes to games and dlc for ps3 but its not that often i can use sales etc because i buy things to fast, over and over again, and Sony is like: well, we got your money now….

No customerservice at all, just look at my psnid and its easy to see how much money i spend on this.

 
TheMassMonster 19 January, 2013 @ 5:27 pm   130

I have always liked Playstation and talked very good about it, but thats about to end, i will quit buying games day1 and wait to they are cheap as hell, thats not a problem, and the same with dlc, and no more psn+ for me, because you wont give a [DELETED] back to me Sony even that i am a extrem lojal costumer means that i will hold in my wallet as hard as incan when its comes to your products, hell even Apple has a AWSOME aftermarket and customerservice, and they are a pretty big company.

I buy all multiplatt to Ps3 but even there i will go with my 360 and only buy some exklusive Ps3titles.

Its sad, but all this is based on that i; a very lojal costumer never gets anything for being a lojal costumer…

//Sad face :/

 
supersmith2500 22 January, 2013 @ 4:58 pm   131

Hey Chris. I don’t think PAIN is a good idea to be on the sale because one of the levels in PAIN’s Amusement Park is broken and does not load that level and to mention there is no patches to fix the game. The issue is explained here: http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Store-Games/Pain-Abusement-Park-problem/td-p/11833931/highlight/false
