This would have been a good opportunity to throw in some PSP games? Thanks for the sale anyway and I continue to look forward to a big PSP sale like there has been previously.

    Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 11:59 am    

    We may (strong “may”) have something in the near future. As usual, stick close to the blog so you don’t miss any sale announcements.

Mission accepted, great briefing commander Jawad. πŸ™‚

Nightmare966 10 April, 2013 @ 11:06 am   3

OK, now, having Hitman: absolution, I game that I was considering, be part of the IGC is like making my birthday even better πŸ˜€

So… Thanks a lot? πŸ˜€

On the rest of the sale though, not much of a fan of shooters unfortunetely. Was wondering… wasn’t a Journey/Unfinished Swan sale coming this month…?

cowbanana 10 April, 2013 @ 11:06 am   4

So, where’s BLOPS: Declassified in the “Declassified” sale?

Lololol… I’d buy it for 5 bucks, maybe.


Great discounts…finally


Any chance of a discount on metal slug xx?


Great deals thanks.
And also thank you for the heads up on Hitman Absolution being on plus next month.



Great sale and a very nice suprise to see Hitman:Absolution coming to PS+ for free πŸ™‚


Kudos for mentioning that hitman is coming to ps plus in may. Fantastic work. Shows you care for your customers. Keep up the good work


Wow Hitman Absolution for Plus automatic Download! πŸ™‚

Offtopic: isnt Guacamelee comin out on PSN today? Been waiting for it to pop up on PSN πŸ™

    Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 12:02 pm    

    Offtopic indeed, but yes. Check the webstore and it’ll be there ready and waiting πŸ™‚

PIREDERAS 10 April, 2013 @ 11:15 am   11

Some questions Jawad:

1. Currently, in the “PS Plus discounts” section of the Store, there are other titles on sale, like Rainbow Moon and Soldner-X. Why not mention these sales too?

2. Thanks for the early tip that Hitman Absolution will be part of May’s IGC! When will we find out about the rest of the IGC?

3. The Declassified sale, as it currently stands, is not for my taste. Will there be more games added in the coming weeks?

4. Any more sales of any kind (PS Vita games please?!) in the next weeks?

    Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 12:05 pm    

    1. These were added last week and aren’t part of this particular promotion. Not to mention if we mentioned every discount, we’d be here a long while :O

    2. Chris will have something for you in the coming weeks.

    3. Unlikely we’ll be adding more to this campaign.

    4. Of course there will be more sales. I can’t announce anything yet but keep checking back for when we do actually reveal anything.

    Chris Howe 10 April, 2013 @ 1:38 pm    

    Jawad is correct, we shall have some details of the rest of the IGC content next week πŸ™‚

Why no Far Cry 3? This game must be here πŸ™

pinkplaybunny 10 April, 2013 @ 11:19 am   13

Awesome, i’ve been hoping for Hitman free on plus!

I will be picking up Crysis 1 too at that price. I wanted to play that before starting Crysis 2 which you gave us in November so this is great!

CreditDue 10 April, 2013 @ 11:22 am   14

People still playing GRAW 2 online?

Falcon1991 10 April, 2013 @ 11:23 am   15

asdfghjkl!! Hitman: A next month! Thank you πŸ™‚

Blue_Boy1987 10 April, 2013 @ 11:23 am   16

Is there any chance we’ll see Dishonored
or Max Payne 3 in the instant game collection
anytime soon? From Dust would be awesome too!

    Chris Howe 10 April, 2013 @ 1:39 pm    

    All great games proving a little tricky to get in the IGC though, but we will keep trying

CreditDue 10 April, 2013 @ 11:26 am   17

Yeah, Max Payne 3 on PS+ would be great, or at least on sale

dogwalker4000 10 April, 2013 @ 11:28 am   18

Great work on the heads up, can’t wait for Hitman ^^

Birthday tomorrow so I may pick up one of these on the cheap πŸ™‚

Carnivius_Prime 10 April, 2013 @ 11:33 am   19

Heh. I’m disappointed with Hitman Absolution being the Plus freebie of May (I don’t like it and I’m hoping the other free games will be more my thing) but I appreciate the honesty shown by saying while it’s discounted now that Plus owners should be patient and wait for it to become free.

Carnivius_Prime 10 April, 2013 @ 11:33 am   20

I say ‘plus owners’, obviously I meant ‘Plus subscribers’ but you know what I mean

DanteofSmeg 10 April, 2013 @ 11:35 am   21

second sale in a row with no vita content?
easter sale had none and now this.
Bit of a shame really.



Would somebody on the team be able to comment on why Vita games are rarely added to your PSN sales? It would be good to understand as many Vita owners are quite disappointed. The Easter sale was another example of little love for the Vita.

For example Unit 13, COD: Declassified, Resistance Burning Skies would have all fit the theme of this sale.

Finally thank you for the heads up on Hitman. I had purchased Jet Set Radio on the Vita only for it to come to IGC 1 month later, this restores my goodwill towards you as you are being fair to customers.

    Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 12:07 pm    

    It really depends on what we can secure at the time and sadly at this time we couldn’t nail PSP/Vita content down.

DanteofSmeg 10 April, 2013 @ 11:43 am   23

“Finally thank you for the heads up on Hitman. I had purchased Jet Set Radio on the Vita only for it to come to IGC 1 month later, this restores my goodwill towards you as you are being fair to customers.”
Completely agree a great heads up and well done for putting customers first.

MadMigsRSA 10 April, 2013 @ 11:44 am   24

Why didn’t you guys put the first 3 Hitman games into one pack and call it the Hitman HD Collection, which is how the disc release is sold as?

edwardccm 10 April, 2013 @ 11:47 am   25

Awesome sale, and thank you for the heads up on Hitman Absolution. I really appreciate you guys for going that extra mile for us.

Mishimotsu 10 April, 2013 @ 11:47 am   26

Wow, the heads up on Hitman is great news… I know you obviously made a mistake with a few things on sale before Christmas before offering them on PS+, but that’s awesome that you’re showing you have learned from their mistakes (it doesn’t seem to happen as often as it should). Have never been happier to be a fan of SCEE at the moment.

Would have loved a little on PSP of Vita as I’ve not got much time to play PS3 at the moment but have 1 hour commute either way to play PSP/Vita titles.


Thanks Jawad for the heads up on Hitman. I’ll be picking that up next month.

Could you please include following PSP/PSV games in the next sale (or IGC for Plus):
– Dokuro
– Escape Plan
– Rayman Origins
– Gensan (PSP)!!

And do you have any news on Closure, Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross coming to the EU store?

supersmith2500 10 April, 2013 @ 11:49 am   28

Smart move for not including CoD games as they don’t deserve to be in the sale especially the disappointing CoD Black Ops: Declassified and Black Ops II.

Well, least there’s one game revealed for Plus next month but the problem is. I already own Hitman Absolution.


And why AGAIN is the PSVita forgotten in yet another sale?

It was forgotten with Xmas too, while USA had PSVita deals, GOOD ones like LittleBigPlanet Vita for 18 bucks for PS+ members.

Why for example isn’t Unit 13 in this declassified sale for PSVita? Not asking much, just something…

seldinhio 10 April, 2013 @ 11:53 am   30

Why do we newer see a PSP or PS Vita sale? And you need to add more PSP RPGs and we still don’t have a good horror game for PSP or PSVita on the PSN.

Aussieanima67 10 April, 2013 @ 11:54 am   31

Sweet! At last some vita titles on sale!!! Oh wait….

TINTINTB303 10 April, 2013 @ 11:55 am   32

@ MadMigsRSA

Hitman Trilogy HD
Was €29.99/Β£19.99, now €11.99/Β£9.69
Additional 10% saving for PS Plus members

Is this what you’re looking for?? πŸ˜‰

Goffeentl 10 April, 2013 @ 12:03 pm   33

As stated, a Declassified sale, without “Declassified” in it, pick a better word next time!

Nice idea that Mission Briefing. πŸ˜‰
And thanks for the hint about Hitman in May, it’s appreciated.

Some good prices on the Tom Clancy titles there. I might bite.

Tagged_Deaf 10 April, 2013 @ 12:06 pm   35


Not another brilliant update from PS Store again and fill up my backlog!

Metal Slug 1 and 2 – Β£6 (Certainly plan to download later)

Some of Tom Clancy games – Β£10-15 for me to spend (Probably Splinter Cell collection and maybe Rainbow Vega 2)


And new Hitman game free next month? It’d make such a great download for gamers. Too bad I already got it while ago and it’s pretty good game.

Easter Egg deals weren’t brilliant expect for Tomb Raider but this update certainly made it up for us.

Good job!

KylieDog 10 April, 2013 @ 12:09 pm   36

Retail titles. *Yawn*

Can buy discs cheaper than the sale price 99% of the time.

PSP sale please, massive one. And no bundles!

MaxiM_82 10 April, 2013 @ 12:15 pm   37

Would you kindly add the PSP version of Metal Slug 1/2 to the sale as well? I though both PS3 and PSP versions are available for picking. I prefer playing games like that on the handheld, and it’s basically the same game anyway. Pretty please.

Mojo__Man 10 April, 2013 @ 12:16 pm   38

I know it’s been mentioned already but THANK YOU for telling your customers in advance if something is coming to PS+, so they don’t “waste” their money.

It shows you have listened to feeback and have acted positively on it.

Great stuff, and it is appreciated.

ste_the_legend 10 April, 2013 @ 12:18 pm   39

Thanks for the heads-up about Hitman Absolution going free for Plus members in Europe πŸ™‚

Looking forward to it!

supersmith2500 10 April, 2013 @ 12:18 pm   40

Yes it is, come to buy it now?

Voodoo341 10 April, 2013 @ 12:21 pm   41

And again….. Unfinished Swan?

    Chris Howe 10 April, 2013 @ 1:42 pm    

    We have something lined up for Unfinished Swan early May. Sorry we know we have been promising this for a while we just haven’t been able to nail it down but we have now! more details to come soon!

Bahamut_MW 10 April, 2013 @ 12:23 pm   42

Any chance of a gravity rush dlc discount anytime soon?

Terarded 10 April, 2013 @ 12:23 pm   43

can i just say, thank you so much for letting us know that hitman would be in the igc next month. most playstation people would take advantage of the sale to sell as many copies before giving it away as possible and the fact that you warned us is seriously the nicest thing in the world. as soon as i saw hitman trilogy in there i considered buying it and you may have saved me money and im very grateful

i may be drunk while typing this but the gratefulness is all the same and im pretty sure i love you.

Terarded 10 April, 2013 @ 12:25 pm   44

dammit! just realised its absolution, already played that one! but still grateful! and i can still go for the platinum anyway so all good.

Splutterbug 10 April, 2013 @ 12:26 pm   45

Some great discounts, and it’s great that you are pre-warning people not to buy stuff that will shortly be announced for the PS Plus Instant Game Collection. This honesty makes me much more likely to buy games in the sales as opposed to waiting for them to “maybe” go free on the IGC. Deus ex and possibly Spliter cell for me I think

silent_strike95 10 April, 2013 @ 12:29 pm   46

I may already own Hitman Absolution due to the christmas time sale, but as many others have said that little warning is very welcome. Thanks for that. The little things make all the difference.

Will be very interesting to see if anyone complains about buying it when it was on sale only to get it on PS+. They’ll have no one to blame but themselves!


Hi Jawad,

are the discounts applied yet? I just check Dues-Ex (normal Version) and the price on PSN is Β£4.7, for PS PLUS while according to your post it should be Β£4.3???? isn’t it?

King_0_Hell 10 April, 2013 @ 12:31 pm   48

slightly disappointed that Xcom; Enemy Unknown isn’t on that list. Any idea if it’ll be on the EU store soon?

MadMigsRSA 10 April, 2013 @ 12:31 pm   49

Thanks TINTINTB303, it is weird though, When I checked about 20 minutes ago, that was not listed there at all.
Guess someone at Sony EU read my comment and added it on. lol.

Thanks again TINTINTB303

MadMigsRSA 10 April, 2013 @ 12:33 pm   50

That has happened a few times actually. Namely DOA5 and Sleeping Dogs(Bought both on release day).
But this just means I can sell/give away the disc versions and simply use the digital version instead.

Denzelio 10 April, 2013 @ 12:36 pm   51

Hi J

Kowicz-v2 10 April, 2013 @ 12:36 pm   52

To Jawad,
Any chance of getting Plants vs Zombies for the PS Vita at a reduced price or even free for the playstation plus users and a reduction on Everybody’s Golf dlc bundle for the Vita aswell.
Also what’s happened to the Stacking game on Psn and it’s dlc. Went to purchase last week and its not on the store. Many thanks…

ferenzzz1971 10 April, 2013 @ 12:36 pm   53

@ Jawad.. didn’t knew Metal slug was on PS Store ?!

Since when ?!


Been on the fence about Hitman Absolution for a while and not got around to picking it up so will definitely get that from IGC next month. May pick up Hitman HD Trilogy from this sale but nothing else interests me.

Just downloaded Virtue’s Last Reward from IGC on Vita, another game I was interested in but never got around to buying, stuff like this is what makes PS+ so good.


Hi Jawad

Since this post includes something about PSPlus my question is not particularly off topic:

If I put games from IGC to download and then cancel them before they are finished downloading they will feature on download list – however, if they are gone from IGC or I momentarily stopped being a member of Plus, will they then still be available to me? I mean, is is necessary to install them in order to “own”them forever?

Denzelio 10 April, 2013 @ 12:42 pm   56

Hi Jawad, Any chance any Lego titles may soon be included in a sale?, I’m Interested in Lego Batman 2 and Lego Lord of the Rings on ps3 but they so far have not been lucky enough to appear in any sale.

hilts663 10 April, 2013 @ 12:44 pm   57

@55 You dont own IGC games forever. You own them as long as you are PS+ member. And yes, you can just put the game to your download list and download later, after the games are no longer part of IGC.

Robinworldwide 10 April, 2013 @ 12:46 pm   58

Being one of the Sleeping Dogs “victims” on the Xmas sale, i greatly apprreciate you guys have learned from that and gave us a heads up on Hitman Absolution. Of course i already own and platted this game, but you guys can’t help that lol. It’s a great game and a great choice to include on the IGC. Might pick up the Hitman HD trilogy from this, thanks guys!

Tagged_Deaf 10 April, 2013 @ 12:48 pm   59

^ He’s right. You’d have to be PS+ member to be able to play these game but why would you want to stop or even cancelling PS+?

For petty Β£40 per year for all these future deals you would have, is an gold-mine for gamers, really.


Are the discounts applied yet?

kucharzPro 10 April, 2013 @ 12:59 pm   61

Jawad, any news on Terraria ? πŸ™
Or will it be an another CS:go ? πŸ™

Broonba 10 April, 2013 @ 1:00 pm   62

Any idea of a release date for Terraria on PS3 in EU??

    Fred Dutton 10 April, 2013 @ 1:49 pm    

    No firm date yet. As soon as we have something concrete, we’ll let you know. It is definitely coming!

ChairyBoyArmy 10 April, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   63

great sale great prices , great info.
just one thing. will we ever get the warriors back ?

ste_the_legend 10 April, 2013 @ 1:18 pm   64

@57 I’m not sure that is true of all games. I saw on the blog last week that someone was having difficulty with a game they downloaded while it was part of the Instant Game Collection but they never got round to playing it until it had left from the promotion. They said that when they started the game it was asking for payment to unlock the full game. I think this is what happens with games that are available for Full Game Trial (like Mass Effect 3 for example). At least that is what the guy was saying. I’m not sure what the situation is but it would be useful to have Jawad or someone confirm because we only have limited HD space and there are som any games!

Where is Rainbow Six Vegas 2? I can only see the first one… =)

vjmwilliams 10 April, 2013 @ 1:22 pm   66

A great sale after the dissapointing Easter sale. Look forward to downloading Crysis, GRAW 2 & Deus Ex.

Stonesthrow 10 April, 2013 @ 1:32 pm   67

Looks like a decent sale but I already own most of its contents. Crysis 3 would be harder to ignore at a lower price but since I don’t like downloading I’ll just wait for a pricecut on the physical copy.


@ 64

That’s exactly my point. A bit too long of a articulation on my part though. Thanks.

CometOnFire 10 April, 2013 @ 1:41 pm   69

What happened to finishing up the egg hunt deals. Doesn’t 5 deals still persists?

Ryusennin 10 April, 2013 @ 1:47 pm   70

Okami HD is missing from this list. Just sayin’.

CBthe1st 10 April, 2013 @ 1:51 pm   71

Hi Jawad,

When Shoyab asked
“Would somebody on the team be able to comment on why Vita games are rarely added to your PSN sales? It would be good to understand as many Vita owners are quite disappointed. The Easter sale was another example of little love for the Vita.
For example Unit 13, COD: Declassified, Resistance Burning Skies would have all fit the theme of this sale.”

you responed with
“It really depends on what we can secure at the time and sadly at this time we couldn’t nail PSP/Vita content down.”

but 2 of the games Shoyab mentions are owend by Sony. How could you not get discount?

CometOnFire 10 April, 2013 @ 1:52 pm   72

Ooh sorry my bad. I misunderstood the egg hunt post then. Nice discount on Hitman HD Trilogy by the way πŸ™‚

vigilante_man 10 April, 2013 @ 1:52 pm   73

What a great Sale. Much better than the Easter Egg Hunt!!

Not a shooter maniac myself but at those prices its worth trying a few out. Great work. You are forgiven for the Easter Hunt.

Only wish there was more for the Vita/PSP but being a PS+ member I’ve got many great titles already (won’t mention the new one just added & downloaded – patience is a “Virtue”).

Keep up the great work. It gives us a chance to try games we might not otherwise buy.

Jamesyp00 10 April, 2013 @ 2:04 pm   74

There’s not much i really want in the sale, but i wanted to really thank you for giving us the heads up on the title coming to the IGC, please continue this as it’s great πŸ™‚

ToXc_NOOBBOY 10 April, 2013 @ 2:04 pm   75

HI Jawad,I can’t download Deus Ex: Human Revolution, there is a problem whit deus ex bcs the price is also wrong it says it cost 0,00 euros . please fix this , thanks for reading.

ITACHI_U________ 10 April, 2013 @ 2:17 pm   76

PS Vita users totally discriminated again. ΰ² _ΰ² 

Well at least put metal slug 1 & 2 for the psp also on sale. So I can play it on my vita? asking too much?

LastkingSaviour 10 April, 2013 @ 2:35 pm   77

I Would like to know when i can expect Final Fantasy X & XII To be available at the Playstation Store and perhaps any info you may know that i already dont on the release of future Final Fantasys ; such as Versus which i have been highly anticipating , Thank You -LastkingSaviour

MWorldII 10 April, 2013 @ 2:38 pm   78

What’s about Rainbow Six Vegas 2 ? Why there’s no link on a game in a web store ?

MakiSaad 10 April, 2013 @ 2:39 pm   79

Hey Jawad
When are we going to have Counter Strike:Global Offensive on the EU PSN??

ChairyBoyArmy 10 April, 2013 @ 2:45 pm   80

and Will we ever get warriors back ? such a tease , having it on for a few hours , and then no info. please dont let me down , say something


Well, great new for Hitman Absolution. Keep up the good work guys! :).

Is there more news about a Lego title for IGC? πŸ™‚

Kowicz-v2 10 April, 2013 @ 3:00 pm   82

Any chance for some info on post no:52. Please.

    Fred Dutton 10 April, 2013 @ 3:22 pm    

    There are no plans for PvZ at present that I’m aware of, but never say never!

    As for Stacking – that’s due to the current situation with THQ’s liquidation. It may return to the Store in due course – we’ll keep you posted.

Coody-Baroody 10 April, 2013 @ 3:13 pm   83

For the last few months Ive had awesome months again and again with PS+ because since the IGC came in Ive learnt to hold off buying games in case they end up free, so its paid off big time over the last 3-4 months.

However, MAJOR bummer for me today, Ive just got Hitman Abs free with a magazine subscription that I wouldn’t normally buy and Ive also just had the Hitman Trilogy delivered today after paying Β£13 for it last week!

Oh well, its still an awesome month AGAIN by you guys at SCEE and MAJOR respect for giving us all the heads up about Hitman Abs too!



PlayStation Plus is BY FAR the best thing that ever happened in the video games industry. πŸ™‚

Thank you for the heads up about Hitman Absolution, and thank you very much Sony and Square Enix for offering it on PlayStation Plus.

I think Square Enix is one of the big supporters of PlayStation Plus (maybe the biggest?) which is really great. πŸ™‚

Thank you and please keep up the good work. πŸ™‚

Demoplay86 10 April, 2013 @ 3:19 pm   85

Thanks a heap man.
That’s a freaking awesome sale.
Some games I haven’t had the time or money to pick up yet.
Suffice to say when payday rolls in i’ll be tearing you sale to pieces πŸ™‚

Is there any news about the PSX titles I had a cry about being added/resubmitted to the Au PS Store?
– Legend of Mana
– Breath of Fire 4
– Chrono Trigger
– Legend of Dragoon
– Legend of Legaia
– Wild Arms II
– Xenogears

I won’t talk your ear off about it, just hunting a status update.
If there’s no new info, fair enough and thanks for looking into it in the first place πŸ™‚

I think it’s safe to say that Tomb Raider will be joining the IGC some time later this year;)

russdude13 10 April, 2013 @ 3:49 pm   87

Aw man, if Metal Slug was on PS Vita for that price, it would be a definite buy from me!

Good sale though, thanks

BaBy-_-D3aN0 10 April, 2013 @ 3:54 pm   88

Decent sale, may pick up a few of the games…

I’ll hazard a guess that seeing as there’s been no Journey sale as promised last month, It’ll be coming to the IGC in the near future?

Also, any chance of a PS Vita DLC sale soon? Really want to get the Gravity Rush DLC’s (excellent game btw)

Finally, any news on release dates of the 2 Sound Shapes DLC packs (Dubstep & 80s)?

zalwelgoedgaan 10 April, 2013 @ 4:33 pm   89

Hitman Absolution coming for PS+? Wow, my prayers have been heard!

Any news on the link for Rainbow Six Vegas 2? See post 65 and 78! Come on, first no terraria and now no Vegas 2. Obvious SCEE troll is obvious… =)

Hi Jawad/Chris/Fred,
Good sale, but I was wondering if there is going to be any Uncharted/Naughty Dog sale soon? Thanks!


plazmaTomi 10 April, 2013 @ 5:44 pm   92


The sale is great. But why is there no Crysis 1 for Hungary?? I mean there is no “it’s not available in hungary” label.

Have a nice day and thanks for the answer.

PrinceCola 10 April, 2013 @ 7:55 pm   94

Splinter Cell, great. Going to get PS+ and some store credit and maybe waste it all on Tom Clancy games πŸ™‚

Awesome, although the Sleeping Dogs incident still hurts, your efforts to avoid future incidents is commendable, well done.

Is Spec Ops: The Line coming to IGC?


If you already have the disc version installled of hitman absolution, and have the codes for dlc installed, will the digital version work with those codes?

Dermado 10 April, 2013 @ 9:42 pm   98

I would have rather it was Tomb Raider and the layout is silly.
But this is how sales should be done, if you KNOW an item will be on PS+, or even think it might be you should tell us, instantly.

to add to Migs, apparently LOTR:WITN was in a sale a few weeks before it went PS+ too but no one bought it so no one noticed o_o
I would say 4 months between it being on sale and PS+ is fair. As would be putting a notice before buying it to PS+ owners, I mean the store is awful and needs a redesign anyway, banners shouldnt take up 1/3 of the page x_X

Hey Fred, I read your update on the PS All-Stars Vita problem and I ended up a bit confused. The thing is I’m planning a Vita purchase by the end of the month and I bought All-Stars in the egg hunt sale. Does this mean I’m going to get a refund and a free downloadable version of All-Stars for Vita? If I’m not getting it, is it because I didn’t own a Vita at the time of purchase and therefore were not affected by the problem at the time? (Or has a fix been made so that I can download the Vita version when I buy the Vita?)

I bought All-Stars well aware that I was soon going to get a Vita and it’s a bit of a let down if I’m not getting the Vita version.

A clarification would be deeply appreciated. πŸ™‚

Hey Sony, you do know that hasn’t been any PSN cards in the WHOLE COUNTRY (Portugal)for over 4 weeks now, don’t you? And I really mean the whole country and stores like Worten, Fnac and Game; I asked each one if they could transfer from another city but they all say both €20 and €50 cards are sold out.
I am waiting to spend €50 on Dissidia and all extras there is for it, because I had more than 1500 hours in that game until I stepped on a wire and broke my PSP lol. Now I’ve just bought a PS Vita so you can imagine how I’m dying to get my hands on Dissidia again and play it on Ad-Hoc Party like a boss. XDD
Anyway, please, Portugal needs PSN cards asap lol.

ill be getting aliens,hitman hd 3 pack,graw 2 and rainbow 6 vegas 1,is battlefield 3 premium going on sale in the near future I dont want to pay full price but it doesnt look like we are getting the discount the xbox and pc got a month ago the pc version went on sale again last week could the moderator tell me if I should hold out or buy it now im willing to wait around 6 weeks for a sale price or there about thanks


Looking forward to playing hitman again on psplus. Was gonna say what about the vita but the sad thing is there’s nothing to get excited about apart from maybe soul sacrifice…. And the kill zone…. 2 good games in one whole year? Is the vita dead or are developers going to use the amazing vita hardware and bring some good games out like unchartered ?

svindelmannen 11 April, 2013 @ 10:23 am   103

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 discount is broken.

Dear Sony, please fix it or I’ll have to resort to comfort food which might affect my health negatively. Wouldn’t want that on your conscience, would you?

PG-Wackiest 11 April, 2013 @ 1:44 pm   104

Question: Will my Game Save of Hitman: Absolution from the disc copy I played work with the downloadable version?

Devils_Demon 11 April, 2013 @ 2:24 pm   105

I dodged multiple bullets this month. I was bidding on Absolution and the HD Trilogy just last week on Ebay. Thank god I lost. Thank you Sony for an excellent month and for giving us a heads-up on Absolution. As a token of my gratitude I will be buying Hitman Trilogy and Splinter Cell Trilogy from this deal today.

nakano1987 11 April, 2013 @ 5:03 pm   106

This is a much better sale! However, the plus discounts are only showing. When you add the item to the basket, you’re asked to pay the regular price. Will you fix it soon?

nakano1987 11 April, 2013 @ 5:13 pm   107

Nevermind, now it’s working; just some temporary bug.

solarwind12 11 April, 2013 @ 8:54 pm   108

have had a good laugh checking out some alien col marines you tube ‘reviews’ out, can it really be That bad?. also hitman igc game, 17GB, wow, played it last year for a bit, contracts mode is very good. anyway i think i’m gonna have to get aliens anyway, solely for the scenery, being it is duplicate of film, shame bout All other parts though, Why does you tube app on vita tell you (me) that you need at least 317mb free mem space to view some vids in hd?, cannot understand, i mean my phone can play same content minus such mem, would like to know whats different with vita.

nezhet10 11 April, 2013 @ 9:14 pm   109

Hi, Chris & Jawad!
Any chance of a Zen pinball 2 dlc discount anytime soon?? they are too expensive…please answer


What is the status of Vegas 2 discount? Was it put on the list by a mistake, or is the discount being enabled on a later date? Would really like to know since I’ve been waiting for a price drop for that game a long time. Thanks.

I’ve had enough now, the lack of Psvita content on sale has made the decision for me, had my Vita for 12 months and gave it time, but the games are too costly and the content on sale always seems to be for Ps3. I’m trading my Vita in today for another handheld console (same as my girlfriend, who has tonnes of great demo’s and cheap games to choose from).

Sorry Sony, after being a customer for more than 10 years. This is my goodbye (Ps3 broke 6 months ago, so now going to have nothing Sony for the first time in ages!!!)

How could anything be cheaper than getting Vita games via Playstation Plus?

Not that I’d mind some additional sales …
Hm, maybe I should demand a Sound Shapes sale once more at this occasion? Has been a while! πŸ˜‰

thirteen82 15 April, 2013 @ 11:44 am   113


Only PSN+ game I have played fully is Uncharted. Not a fan of the others so far, which means it’s 40 pounds and one decent game for me.

Demo’s, we are lucky to get one every two months.

Fifa, Assassins Creed and COD are all overpriced and would be cheaper pre-owned (and were, if they were cheaper on PSN store, I would pay it)

PSP titles, some are 3/4 years old and 20-30 pounds, incredible really.

I cannot justify spending out on PSN+ just with a possibility I might play one of the games in a few months.

I’m out.

thirteen82 15 April, 2013 @ 11:46 am   114

Plus, PS3 PSN+ subscribers get more discounts + the PSN+ extras.

Us Vita users get overpriced games and hardly any sales.

thirteen82 15 April, 2013 @ 11:49 am   115

Tell you what, if the PSN guys here can tell me to wait a few weeks and that they are working on some really good deals, I might hold off. I LOVE Playstation and actually love my Vita, I just cannot afford to game on it πŸ™

(and for the record, I review games for a website – I have to buy my own as we are not funded by anybody!)

Usually you receive review copies from the industry itself. Provided that your site has achieved a minimum history of reliability and quality of course.

Afaik they said that a Vita sale is on schedule. I wouldn’t mind if they gave us the slight idea about the ETA. Worked out quite well for Walking Dead too, the people loved that pre-announcement.

Daethos 26 April, 2013 @ 12:20 pm   117


Missed this sale completely, would have loved to get Hitman & Splinter Cell games ;_;
