These two games for the PS Vita have been on sale recently already, sounds liek you missed them. However if you buy Hustle Kings for PS3 you get the Vita version for free.

So instead of a proper summer sale (like the US had) we just get sports games? or is there another sale coming soon?

Sadly sports games are not my taste (at the moment) but nice to see a summer sale is on, i presume this means other titles/genres will be having a sale sometime too?

This is not our main Summer Sale campaign, that kicks off next week.

What is the size of “Everybody’s Golf: World Tour Complete Edition” ?

And will we get a demo of “Sports Champions 2” ? I was a big fan of the first one.

Pool, darts and bowling are Summer Sports? :D

Sure they are :P

Well I play them in the summer anyway down my local.

Then again, I play them all year a bit like computer games.

Any extra discounts for Plus members by any chance? ;)

CookieMonsterES 24 July, 2012 @ 12:43

Good work, Andy.

May I suggest some Marvel Pinball tables packs to be discounted in the coming summer sale or is it too late? :P

11

God Of War ghost of Sparta – will there be a discount in Summer Sale?

12

nice – now if you could stick vita VT4 back in the sale it’d be appreciated since I logged to buy it on the last day of the sale (sale ends Monday – logged in Monday) and it had been removed! :(

SuGaR_rAy_RiDeR 24 July, 2012 @ 12:55

Nice little sale to start things off, might pick up hustle kings.

Is there any chance that we could possibly get Parasite Eve 2 psone classic a discount? would pick that up in a heartbeat :-)

UnlikelyMelodies 24 July, 2012 @ 13:00

@orton131

That’s because the game has only just been released. You can’t expect it to be in the sale straight away!

is there a filesize you have for everybodys tennis?

16

Track & Field PS1 Classic, would have been nice :(

I hope the Summer SALE is decent & not SALES of previous SALE items!

I would like to see Dead Block, Dragons Lair 2, Age of Booty, Assault Heroes, Blade Kitten, Burgertime World Tour, Buzz Junior titles, Droplitz, Eat Them!, Fret Nice, Galaga Legions DX, Journey, Hasbro Family Game Night, I Am Alive, Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition, Namco Museum Essentials, PAIN DLC, Scarygirl, Savage Moon, Shoot Many Robots, Skydrift, TerRover, Top Gun, Voltron: defender of the Universe, Wrecked: Revenge Revisited & various DLC just to name a few ;)

No Fifa:Soccer for psvita? :/. Might as well wait for Fifa 13 anyway I guess.

Any chance of a MotorStorm RC sale?

@orton131 Maybe when Sega get the finger out and stop releasing awful ports of Dreamcast games and shutting down an awesome fan made game, Streets of Rage Remake, that was in development for 8 years and they waited for the guys to release it before telling them they couldn’t (phew), then just maybe they will do a sale on The Official London 2012 Olympics Game.
Sony are taking the initiative by putting their own games on sale.

Move Fitness is fantastic. Already got it at launch from PSN, but I highly recommend it, one of the coolest things you’ll do with a Move. It may not look like it on the surface, but the tracking is just superb.

Hey Andy, I just recently purchased a £25 Playstation Network Voucher and was hoping to spend it on games for my Vita. Could you just give me a heads up on whether there’ll be any Vita games going on sale in the summer sale so I know whether to hold off on spending till then or not, thanks.

Will definatly be picking up Hustle Kings and Top Darts to play on the Vita.

Only noticed Andy’s pic lol. “GOTTA LOT OF GOOD THINGS ON SALE STRANGER” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oXx0qwe0wc

Andy, a couple of weeks ago you hinted on the blog that you were working with Konami in regards to a promotion on MGS Peace Walker. Have you managed to get anything lined up? Ps, Nice pre-sale ‘sale’, not much for me as I have Hustle Kings and Everybody’s Golf on my vita (hope the snooker pack dlc for HK is reduced tomorrow) but hyped for next week. August should be good: puddle, Dyad, sound shapes…

@Andy Stewart

how about atually getting some new content 2 the store instead off putting the same content on sale constantly.
seriously and you guys think your providing a good service’s how bout som discount info on like the games U.S got with their PLAY sale offer.

“Presenting Sports Champions now on SALE! WAS $ripoff.99, NOW STILL a $ripoff.99.

SCEE, giving you the oldest games at record breaking prices since AGES ago! You’re welcome loyal oblivious PSN users, YAY!”

seriously, why do you people put up with SCEE and their extortion?

Aww no PSVita version of Hustle Kings? btw. Andy, quick question. Do we get the PSVita version free when bought the PS3 version?

Not into sports and watching at the so called sale prices it’s not as exiting as the awesome steam sales.

I hope there will be some kind of MEGA RPG sale, that would be a big money dump from me!

Nice very nice only 4 euro Hustle kings amazing! i wiil buy it and the foosball too, are both is great games for Vita! Buy the everybody tennis guys don’t miss this chance is the best tennis game for psp, actually is the best tennis video game ever :)

I’d love to get the digital version of Sports Champions.

Is this one of the games that has a compatible save file between the PSN and Blu-ray versions?

I will only purchase it if this is the case.

Can I also please ask what is the reasoning between making the save files incompatible? Surely this is making you lose sales.

Is it possible to see a DLC sale in the future? Particular titles I want DLC for are Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3.

Is the DLC for Motorstorm Pacific Rift going to be on sale in the near future?
Servers are closing on 1 october and the 2 DLC packs are still 5,99 euro each. You can find the main game for 5-10 euro in retail nowadays. I might buy them to get 100% in the game, but I need to do so before servers close and 5,99 each is a bit too much in my opinion. Won’t buy them without a discount though.

Hey Andy, the descriptions suggest that Hustle Kings and Everybody’s Golf require Move controllers and PlayStation Eye… But both work just fine with a Sixaxis or DualShock. :)

CoolRichy008UK 24 July, 2012 @ 22:21

here we go again more games being recycled

SONY WE WANT NEW GAMES not games that get cheeper

35

At first I was all “Boooooo, sports, booooooooo, outside and physical activity and sports, booooooooo” and that, but then I saw Everybody’s Golf and Hustle Kings and began nervously eyeing my wallet.

Looks like it’s time to open once again, old friend!

Also, can’t wait to see what legendary summery goodness is coming in the big sale.

Looks at wallet after Steam Summer Sale ……..

I’ll probably get Hustle Kings to play on my vita at that price. One question about it though : Can it only be played with the touchscreen and motion controlls? Because I’ve seen vita footage of it and it seemed like they could only move their cue with touchscreen. Not the one where you have to ‘power up’ the cue, but just for looking left and right and select other targets, can this be done with the joysticks too? Because it seems kind of unresponsive with touchscreen. I’d give the demo a try but if it’s touchscreen only, I don’t even need to bother.

38

Can we please get more PSP games available on Vita?
Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow and Medal of Honour please!
Oh, and a price drop for Ghostbusters on PSP please, it’s been out 3 years and still full price! :(

39

@37

Hustle Kings can be played using nothing but the joysticks and buttons, with the exception of taking the actual shot.

40

It’s only $4.99 on the US PSN just for comparison! ;)

thebluegaloo 25 July, 2012 @ 13:40

When is this meant to start? I’m gmt and still no sign of it at nearly 1400hrs

Thank you Andy, for putting Everybody’s Tennis in the sale this time. Already purchased it for only 3 euro. :D

Stonesthrow 25 July, 2012 @ 16:58

@39 Thx for reply.

44

Seems a bit daft that Hustle Kings and Top Darts dont show as that price on the vita when you get the other version free anyway? Why does it not show at that price on Vita & PS3? I dont see a logical reason for this cause its the same purchase unless its intended to stop those without a PS3 getting the price maybe? So HK is £6.49 on my Vita so I have to get home to switch my PS3 on and buy it there which odds are I’ll forget to.

What makes it more odd is that Everybodys Tennis IS at the sale price on the Vita as well
