Best sale ever, any vita user who is not happy now please buy a 3ds.

pinkplaybunny 21 August, 2013 @ 11:07

Great to hear we are getting Assassins Creed 3 free in October. Can’t wait to hear the September games too! 

But I don’t want a 3ds.

4

Great sale, been wanting LBP vita for a while but wanting to see if it was going to come to PS+ IGC. If it’s not coming next month then it’s more than worth the £5.39 I pay for it in the sale. Same goes for Motorstorm RC at that price :D

Any chance to get some dlc discount for gravity rush?

:/

Motorstorm RC Complete includes Pro AM and Carnival expansion packs?
Are the DLC going to be discounted as well?

7

@6 MS RC has all DLC. i can confirm it. it includes ALL 100? dlcs

Overal this is a ok sale.

PS Vita continues to disappoint at lengths. If I wanted to play PSP games I use my PSP. Such an expensive handheld console and outrageous expensive memory cards for such cheesy games. I was expecting way more from this console, and I really hope to hear some good news in the upcoming months. Otherwise they should just label PSVita has a console for Indie lovers.

Is there a chance to get the Wipeout Fury DLC discounted?

10

Too bad we’ve not gotten DOA5+ or ACIII: Liberation on the sale :(

some really good additions here.

wont please everyone but at least some of these titles have never been on sale before and lbp is now the price lots of people asked for after the usa offer from christmas.

well done on the selection chris

@Ry_Ratchet

Yes, complete edition is including both DLC packs.

@Bahamut_MW

I second that. Would like to get gravity rush to 100% but I think the packs are too expensive right now. So any possibility for a discount?

And again, utter disappointment. How long will this continue?

SCEE got great PSVita sales, even lately, with the Japanese PSVita game sales.

Persona 4 Golden for 20 bucks, Soul Sacrifice for 17 bucks.

What does EU get? A bunch of old PSP games and stuff that was for free or already been discounted before?

Man… How long can this failure of EU PSVita discounts continue compared to USA…

14

@10 I hoping we get ACIII: Liberation free next month on PS+. I would make sense if AC III is free for PS3 this month

I see some nice games in sale!

@Chris: is this the last update for the Summer Sale?
and discount on the Motorstorm DLC would be nice! :)

@Hayzink

wrong… This is LBP PSP version, not the PSVita one where everyone was asking about.

I bought LBPV retail for 17.99 physical copy already, waiting for nothing in EU it is.

17

US store sale make me cry for EU.
Where are new games on gamescon? I dont want indie, I want AAA games.
And dont say me about ports..,

Luizelgespuizel 21 August, 2013 @ 11:16
18

Is this everything ? Only thing hasnt been discounted bedroeg is Resistance. When do we get Silent Hill for 7,50 like in the USA? Is was discounted twice for that privé over there.

@themart

the link takes you to the vita version.

also it does not say psp next to it.

20

@7 Thanks!
Well, for 4,04€ is good value. I already own the base game, I planned on buying the DLC bundle(Pro AM + Carnival), which is 3,99€, but if for 5 more cents I can get the extra vehicles too I think I’m going with this

Luizelgespuizel 21 August, 2013 @ 11:17
21

Sorry ipad typo’s in post before.

Well the LBP link leads to the Vita version. But yeah, they probably just used the wrong link. Mistakes are the standard experience. ;)

Only Smart As raised a minimum interest btw.
But I guess nobody else would play that game meanwhile.

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 11:18
23

Average sale but better than the Summer Festival.

Chris, when can we except the Plus line-up for September? We already know were getting Assassin’s Creed III but what about the other 4 games?

@supersmith2500

chris said on the ps plus on ps4 post that we will know all content tomorrow

@BigBoyBanksy.. I believe it’s the LittleBigPlanet PSP that is on sale for £5.39, not LBP Vita.

think ill grab resistance along with my killzone beta later,

brought wrc3 last week i wished i didnt know, i suck so bad

27

@mart. It’s the vita version of LBP. i can confirm that, the LBP PSP version costs 8$ in my store and the store havn’t been updated yet

@hayzink

probably an error, as LBPV is 34.99 Euro at the moment and not this:

“Was €14.99/£11.99/$22.95, now €7.49/£5.99/$11.47
Additional 10% off for PS Plus members”

@supersmith2500.. They said in one of the other blogs that we’ll hear about Septembers Plus line-up tomorrow.

Any chance that we’ll get all those games which were released before the PS Store become available here?
I’ll love to play LocoRoco and MediEvil. :(

Hey Chris,

Kinda sad to not see escape plan on the list :(
Might get a few other things though.

How can you guys still have specials on Motor Storm RC? the save issue has been known and broken FOREVER! worst experience ive had with a console game EVER.

The only fix was, “add Phenon Evolution to PSN and msg him”
All of wich i did a few times, yet, only get ignored, and sit with a sour taste in my mouth.

One of the reasons im very reluctant to spend any money on Drive Club once out.

Seriously though, I’d like to see NISA PSP-titles on sale (Disgaea and Prinny ones). :)

LBP was asked by many, now you finally got it. ;) Nothing for me on this sale (already got MotorStorm RC on previous sales), but I’m not complaining. Still have to finish Gravity Rush and Persona 4 Golden. So many games and so little time… *sigh*

@themart

the psp version sells for £6.49 so its not that.
its the vita version they have just put the wrong “was” price up (im sure i paid £11.99 for lbp on the store but sure it was a sale)

I wish that there would have been some interesting games on sale like Ragnarok or something… Not sale for me /:

Disappointing sale. I was hoping for some of the titles that US got in their Vita Japanese games sale.

@1: Since you were crying over PS+ on PS4 cause its gonna be forced upon you, i suggest you buy a WiiU.

38

The vita memory card prices are still a joke guys…

I am enjoying the vita only because of ps+ but the memory sticks… not a chance in hell am I paying them prices.

If the PS+ offer also goes for the US Store it might be a good time to get a sub for the US Store, the ongoing Vita Sale in the US alone will be worth the purchase.

@WizzNL
Too bad Vita supports only one account.

Meh… worthless again. I already own the few worthwhile games.

I got Resistance: Burning Skies (retail card) for €6 last year. So €12.45 isn’t really a good deal now is it? But the game was worth €6 – Somewhat crappy game with some short bursts of enjoyment spread out over the 5-6 hour long campaign. Clearly the game was all kinds of rushed. A good indicator of how well Sony intended to handle the Vita. All the signs were there to begin with.

@39: Right, forgot bout that. Guess the Vita owners are being let down once more. Thank you for reminding me to make an US account when i get my Vita though.

@38
yeah that won’t work with only one account allowed on PSVita. And buying a 2nd one just to enjoy the USA sales is a bit too much eh

Agreed though, if only Sony would allow multiple accounts on PSVita like on PS3, I could use my USA account and get it filled up with prepaid USD’s to get their deals.

@WizzNL

i buy lots from usa storee and just last night i almost got a plus sub but the free vita stuff i could not use would annoy me.

i already have sound shapes for vita via usa store that i can never use due to how accounts work on vita.

they really should add account switching as my wife enjoyed the vita but she has her own id and likes to get trophy’s but as all my games were digital she could not play them in her name.

@41

Problem though… The EU PS+ free IGC is better than USA’s. So to enjoy both, Sony should just allow the multiple accounts. And I want to keep all my stuff in one place, with trophies just on my one PS+ account for all devices in the Playstation family, PS3, PSVita, PS4.

@cowbanana

sorry if i got this wrong but is lbp not now at a price you were after?

47

I bought GT PSP literally 2 days ago, doh! Good sale again. Also any idea when the new UK price (£) for Vita will be announced? 200 € is about £170, and Amazon and Game are selling the wifi version with 8bg card and 10 games to download for that price. I’m itching to get a vita, just waiting for the new price to know what to get.

@4 and others

“Posted on 21 August, 2013 at 11:09 am by BigBoyBanksy

Pretty sure that is LBP PSP though, like the other big games up there are the PSP versions too.

LBPVita is 34.99 Euro in the store at this moment, and not 14.99 as stated. Pretty sure they won’t sell LBPVita for 7.49 Euro that would be a discount of more than 25 Euro on its current price. Not going to happen. This is the PSP version…

Last offers were better, went ahead and got Valkyria Chronicles 2 before the offer expires. might get Reality Fighters later, i enjoyed the demo when i got my Vita.

@47

I think that’s the case with LBP, I remember I bought it in the sale for 10 euros back then. This would be a steal – 80% it’s the PSP version.

51

@THEMART

You’re right. i forgot to see what the previous prices were.

I just wanted a LBP vita sale and they were too lazy to put “psp” in the title

52

Is it safe to get Resistance Burning Skies? Any plans on coming to PS+? Or are you at least trying to get it for it? Even for the long term IGC in November?

Just thinking that MIGHT be the LBPVita version if they totally mixed up the prices.

14.99 original price instead of 34.99, if I add 10 Euro to the sales price, it’ll be 17.49 which would be in line with what USA had last Xmas for around 18 USD.

But at this moment, it is very uncertain. My guess is still that it is the PSP version though with another error on the prices.

But the link for LBP is LBP Vita, so who knows. Maybe it’s really that big price cut.

55

Ive got motorstorm already. Any chance of the DLC going on sale? I really want the extra tracks.

@51

I think it will be in IGC soon. They always have sale and then they put it in :)

57

Yeah it looks like it, the PSP store prices has been changed now but VITA prices isn’t. also like @53 said the picture shows sackboy near the vita :O so it’s good to be true :D

Darn it, bought Gran Turismo for 7.99 ladt week :p, I could have known,. Ah well, at least my bro got some decent games on the PSP now. Everybody’s Golf is cross-buy?

I’m really starting to think that whoever lines up the sales on the US store is reading the EU blog and thinks…hmmm how can I annoy the Europeans. It seems the US always gets the things on sale that people in the EU want.

I bought Motorstorm RC months ago when it was £2 and change only to receive a code for it a couple months later for R&C Q-Force.

I’m still hoping that one day you will put EDF 2017 and Atelier Totori Plus on sale…at some point please. Also Dokturo on sale would be nice as I doubt any of those games will ever make it to the EU vita IGC

i bet lbp is the vita version like i said before.

its having a huge discount now and it will be free on plus before christmas, would not be surprised if it becomes one of the “hero” games when they change

I’d love me some pata pata pata pon (it’s on the picture too) but no way it happens. I think the picture under headline is not relevant at all :D

Well I already bought LBPVita for 17.99 phsyical copy months back because the sales took too long. So either way… USA still gets the better deals with larger discounts on reasonably newer games. Persona 4 Golden, Soul Sacrifice, Ragnarok, so many games on discount for them last few weeks.

Also Loco Roco 2 is around 5e too, I don’t know what to think of it. Either it’s totally messed up or someone went crazy.

dogwalker4000 21 August, 2013 @ 12:11
64

@TheMART – So either way you can’t admit you were wrong or apologise for giving people the wrong information.

The sale though isn’t bad by EU standards. Will probably pick up Everybody’s Golf.

Loco Roco 2 I bought in a sale like a month ago, I think it was… around 3 Euro or 3.50 Euro back then. This one is Loco Roco part 1.

Now the discount on LBP on the PSN store is back what it was a month ago, down from 34.99 to 31.49 lol

Something is messed up

SuGaR_rAy_RiDeR 21 August, 2013 @ 12:14
67

To be honest with you, this for me is probably the best VITA sale there has been, if none of the games will appear on PSPLUS for september, will be picking up Resistance and Little Big Planet,

Once again a great sale!!!

Yeah um, thanks PSN EU.

Can you release Divekick now? :(

@hayzink

I already own LBP Vita, I bought it when it was released. I remember vividly, because the game was broken (couldn’t install) and I had to endure the ridiculously bad support to get it fixed. It involved an untimely refund and having to purchase the game again… Oh what joy, and it was just the first in a row of broken games from the ever vigilant *cough* and always competent *cough* store team employed by SCEE.

I believe you’re thinking about New Little King’s Story, which was available for 10 USD on US PSN. I would buy the game at that price.

for me on the vita the plus price showing for LBP is £26.99

@dogwalker4000 “The sale though isn’t bad by EU standards.”

No offense, but what does that even mean?

The standard for SCEE PSN sales is inherently, intolerably bad, so when we get an intolerably bad sale on EU PSN it ok because… the standard mandates that it be bad?

My mind… *poof* :)

72

@ pinkplaybunny
where did you get the info, that AC3 will be free for ps+?
and you mean for PS3 OR Vita?

Skatercrosskid 21 August, 2013 @ 12:38
73

Might have to pick up Resistance for that price :)

dogwalker4000 21 August, 2013 @ 12:38
74

@cowbanana – Surely that sentence isn’t that difficult to understand? Basically it’s not that bad of a sale when compared with the average SCEE sale, it’s not the best ever but it’s not as awful as some of the sales with had recently.

@cowbanana

cool that is what i was thinking about, think you will be happy tomorrow when it gets added to plus(if its not chris is bad at giving hints lol)

@tony-juice

the announced it at the sony event at gamescon

Aussieanima67 21 August, 2013 @ 12:43

Street Fighter X Tekken PS Vita (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $19.59
Dead or Alive 5 Plus (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $10.00
Ragnarok Odyssey (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $14.69
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection PS Vita (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $14.69
Dynasty Warriors Next (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $8.75
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 PS Vita (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $10.00
New Little Kings Story (PS Vita) – PS Plus Price: $9.79

Don’t know anything about the shovelware the EU blog is trying to sell but the above deals the US are getting are awesome!

78

No sale on Atelier Totori Plus or Ragnarok Odyssey like on the US, and as they are PS Store only I can’t get them cheaper any where else :(

@tony-juice: They announce AC3 for PS+ yesterday at Gamescon.

Why isnt the info bout Rain up? All non-Sony websites already have the info posted but nothing on the Blog? Guess we dont get any Sony news first on the Sony Blog lol.

Rain will be available in October 1st in North America, October 2nd in Europe, and October 3rd in Japan. It will cost $14.99/€12.99.

@hayzink

Yeah, NLKS for PS+ would be nice. It’s about the only option left before Chris looks silly :)

But given how things usually go around here I expect it to be 20€ or more, even on sale. I’ll buy for €10, which I consider fair, given that the game was 10 USD on US PSN.

81

Was really hoping for Soul Sacrifice to be discounted, as in the US recently. Or maybe you’re just waiting to give us that on PS+? :-)

More info bout Rain:

The team behind the game has also revealed a slew of pre-order bonuses. If you pre-order the game on PlayStation Store before it launches, you can receive three different perks: a music montage called “Melody of Rain,” an avatar pack called “Reflections of Children” that features five different avatars, and a dynamic theme called “Lost in the Night.”

This is a damn good sale. Smart As, Locoroco and Pursuit Force for me it is!

Chris, is Motorstorm DLC going to be on sale? I guess it may be cheaper just to get the complete edition :S

P.S. I loved how all the major PSP games have been on sale for under £3 but why hasn’t Daxter?! WHY?!!!!!! What did he do wrong?!!!

Sad they don’t have any info on Terraria for PSV :)

I’ve seen NLKS on sale for as low as £14.85 (Shopto I think). As much as I love Pikmin herding games the voice used for narration…it’s like the voice of Shaft coming from some cutesy anime character.

So if NLKS is Sept. IGC I hope the other game is Dokturo. Where did he give the hints about it at?

As I couldn’t get Gamescom live stream to work (ended up finally finding a working stream on youtube) missed the announcement of ACIII being given on plus – is that for Sept or Oct IGC. As I’ve seen both in the comments

86

Very Disappointed, as there is 1 PSP game I wanted to go on the list but it never goes on sale, because kojima are trying to forget it –

Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops

I want it to play Peace Walker as I don’t play games out of order.

87

Pleeeeeeease, when we will get info about september´s PS+ update?
please,tell us…

thanks

I think it’s funny that people who seems to own every game that is out on Vita is looking out for a sale and they’re the only ones complaining. Please, this sale isn’t bad just because it has all the games you already own. For example, if you had good Vita games like Gravity Rush, Escape Plan, LittleBigPlanet already in your library and they go on sale and become like, 5 euros each, is it then a bad sale?

Please guys, just stop complaining. You can’t have everything you want in life and the sooner you realize it, the better.

Ontopic, this sale really surprised me. I actually expected digital-only games to be on sale, but seeing Little Deviants and Everybody’s Golf at those prices is really tempting. I don’t want to buy these games at 20 or so euros in real life, so I find it very convenient to not only have access to them a lot quicker as digital games but they are also cheaper. The PSP games selection is also good even though the lack of big games like Ratchet and Clank and Jak and...

Nothing for me this week… as usual. I’ll just wait for the games to be free on PS+.

Resistance and Everybody’s Golf now showing discounted price on Vita browser (£8.99 and £5.39 for PS Plus respectively). Web store still showing full price.

91

@ WizzNL
@ hayzink

and did they announced some other games for PS+?

Great sale finally for Vita! But of course entitled gamers will still complain!
Just Resistance for me great price!
I’ll also be importing The Walking Dead Vita if the DLC is on the cart along with a 32GB memory card!
Viva la Vita and it’s soon to be god like status!!!

everything except LBP Vita is right (regarding the price) on PSV store

@88

Stop saying people can’t complain.

Compare the PSVita games on sale this summer to those that are on sale in USA.

Nuff said.

Well at least one good deal today and its totally free:

Killzone Mercenary Beta downloading right now!

Lol PSN store is a total mess right now. Resistance Burning Skies says 22.49 Euro on my PSVita PSN store incl PS+ discount. It says 12.45 Euro above in the message. So in store it just gets like 2 Euro discount and is 10 Euro more expensive than the price shown inhere…

Damn, what a mess this week. Maybe it is because of the Gamescom MESSe in Cologne Germany lol

97

Another disappointing sale that is not even remotely close to what US has at the moment.

And saying “but we get better IGC games” – i would take discounts on new games for Vita over 1-3 “better” games per year in a hearbeat, but Sony doesn’t provide option to transfer account to another region and having 2 accounts on Vita is intentionally made a pain in the @ss.

Cataplexy-Pop 21 August, 2013 @ 14:10
98

Heads up. In the picture in this article, on of the game images is for Patapon and it isn’t listed amongst the specials.

99

Simple question for SCEE employees: “WILL EU EVER GET VITA GAMES SALE” ?

Thx in advance for ignoring this question for 101-st time.

@vik26061993

my sarcasm detector is a bit off here, you are posting in a topic about a vita sale asking if we will ever get a vita sale.

are you serious or trying to be funny?

the plus discount has been added to lbp vita so it is that on sale.

just have to wait for the main discount now for those who want it

Alexander_Doom2 21 August, 2013 @ 14:20
102

When these sales will ends? Next week, on 28th August?

@102

I think it’s safe to assume that this is two weeks sale as previous ones.

104

@98

I don’t think they care about the change of covers for blog announcements :D

@ hayzink

LBPVita is down from 34.99 to 31.49

Now that could be an error, for those that want the game I hope it is.

If not, in my country it is 17.99 in retail stores now, physical copy.

BTW playing Killzone Mercenary Beta right now, damn nice! Those graphics. Need to step up my game though, getting slaughtered haha

PS+ 15 months for the price of 50 Euro is up now to, will buy it maybe even twice to stack those 30 months!

I was trying to decide between a Vita and 3DS after the price drop, Your comment proved to me that 3DS is the better choice, Thanks!

Anyway, This sale is really nothing compared to US sale(To me)
There is nothing i would play from this list where the US sale has more than 2
Either way, I would get the games i would really want physically

3DS ain’t a good choice at all. Recycled Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong…

Aside of the fact it is a disabled system with just one analogue stick and a low resolution one touch stylus touchscreen.

I played them both, but really, a 3DS is meh to me. And that added dept shouldnt’ be called 3D either!

@TheMART

i like your comments and agree with what you say lots.

but

you cant say on the one hand that the vita needs versions of god of war and gran turismo etc and then say the 3ds has recycled mario,zeldas and donkey kong.

nintendo are smart and like you said before(with regards to vita) big franchises sell and the games you mentioned are the sole reason that the 3ds is the leading the vita by miles.

109

Opinions, My previous comment was more of a sarcasm, Really

I find the 3DS to be much better, And you can’t do anything to change my opinion

Also, lol “fact”

I don’t care if it has 1 or 2 analogue sticks, Graphics aren’t everything, And i don’t like touch in my games, Except for few times

The only thing that the Vita has for me is it is region free, P4G(Which i already bought physically in case a friend buys a Vita or when i eventually get one) and i can use PSN accounts on it

3DS has way more games i would play, SMT4, Devil Survivor Overclocked, DS2:Code Breaker, Pokemon X, Senran Kagura Burst, Code of Princess, Fire Emblem: Awakening. And this is just a small list

I would probably get a Vita eventually, Just like how the 3DS is meh to you, Vita is even more meh to me

@hayzink

One difference that is to me at least clear:

Nintendo IP’s are decades and decades old and truly recycled.

Most of Sony IP’s, even though coming over from PS3, are fairly young or at least a good share of them.

LBP = this gen, Killzone 1 started on PS2, but mainly is this gen. Uncharted this gen. GT is another story though.

But those big games ain’t like Mario, Zelda, DOnkey Kong, Kirby in number of years and number of games. Mario Kart 45368325803252386… Just boring.

So even though both get stuff from big brother, Nintendo is too much recycling to me. Oh and Zelda Ocarina, great GREAT game but a direct port to 3DS…

111

I actually hate the games the games you mentioned too, I only like Mario Kart and Galaxy series, Zelda A Link to the Past, And most of Kirby games out of what you mentioned

Even that most of Ninty’s franchise are “Recycled”, They still have more quality than Sony’s… “IP” to me

@111

Well yeah, that is preference. I played those enough on my Wii already though, done with it for the time being. Quality is also a subjective measurement. For me quality is also trying to go outside of stuff done before, like Tearaway. To me Nintendo was such a company when they did the NES, SNES, even a bit on the N64. After that, Nintendo died a little for me, year by year.

Might be a harsh thing to say, but I rather had Sega back making a Dreamcast 2, with their weird and funny games like Space Channel 5 and others, and Nintendo bring their decades old IP’s multiplatform…

@TheMART

Well, I’ve seen you comment on every sale every week and the only thing I’ve read from your comments are complaints. You are not contributing to anything by complaining that some deals, that are by the way completely optional, sucks. Sony can decide to stop putting games on sale, if that’s what you want.

You can do whatever you want, but you are destroying the comment section with really annoying complaints and you have done that EVERY week for the past month. I enjoy reading through comments and surely a bunch of other people do as well, but seeing you writing complaints week after week really destroys the atmosphere. You must be one of those people who likes to ruin the fun for everyone. Really wish that you would consider changing your attitude and start being more positive, but that’s asking a lot I assume.

114

@TheMART

I look up for games before buying consoles, And believe it or not, I rarely play Nintendo’s IPs
I personally prefer the Wii(Even that i didn’t boot it up from a long time) Because it has Xenoblade, Sin and Punishment: Star Successors, My top 2 games this(last gen? Since Wii U, Vita and 3DS are already out) respectively, I still play on my PS3 much more now, And i prefer portable gaming over console

And again, It is your opinion, I can understand that(Since this is not GameFAQs), But for me on Nintendo stop making games, I would also stop buying and playing other companies consoles and games, Since Pokemon Yellow and Gameboy Color was the reason i even started to play games, And i owe Nintendo that much, Though, I would rather see M$ vanish instead of Nintendo stop making consoles

Is the price for LBP vita a typo? Every other game on the list is updated with correct prices except this that only has the 10% Plus discount.

Dear Plus members, look at the coming soon tab on IGC ad in Latest -> Games. Beside Assassin’s Creed III is Urban Trials and if you purchased that game from the sale. Prepare to be dissapointed because this game could come to IGC next month.

@113

You couldn’t be more wrong. And obviously you haven’t been reading my praising comments at stuff released like Superfrog HD and others where I complement the devs.

Heck, I even complement the IGC often.

But as a launch buyer of the PSVita I may express my feelings about bad discounts for PSVita, certainly compared to USA. Even if that is on weekly basis, as since Xmas 2012, EU gets the shaft on them.

If you don’t like my comments, skip them. I don’t like your complaining about other people that truly have a complaint.

118

@115

yeah you’re right just saw that, Urban Trial Freestyle coming soon to PS+

So guessing for vita its Urban Trial Freestyle and Little Kings Story next month, hope its LKS for Sept and they haven’t pushed it back again.

Has it been confirmed which version of LBP is on sale? For £6, I’d take the Vita version for sure.

If not, it’s these kinds of errors that create disappointment and confusion for customers. If it is indeed the Vita version of the game then I FINALLY have something positive to say about SCEE sales because it’s an excellent price.

PLEASE GET THESE GAMES ON Sale!

Atelier Totori+
Earth Defence Force 2017
Orgarhythm
Sumoni
Dokuro
Dead Or Alive 5+
Doctor Who Eternity Clock
Plants Vs Zombies

Because these have been high price for ages! And I would love to play all of them, among other peoples.

STEP IT UP – The US Discounts are amazing… our’s aren’t :(

Also is it Vita LBP or PSP? Because £5.39 would be great.

When friends ask me what handheld they should get, I’ll tell my I hate my Vita and SCEE and 3DS is the way to go.

Look at the US sales, LOOK AT THEM. Do you not think this is insulting to SCEE Vita owners?

I’ll answer: More than you can imagine.

Good games on sale today. Some people will never be happy ;)

Only want to know wich LBP is on sale en on what price ?

Little Big Planet was meant to be £5.99 + 10% PS plus discount. Can you confirm why this is not showing on the store and when it will be fixed?

Currently £26.99!

it would be good if you could reply

Yet another ridiculous Vita sale

If The LBP thing is a typo I think you should honour it now as you’ve got my bargain juices flowing. 3DS is ace, but not quite as good as Vita.

LBP vita for €7,49 is a great deal but when does it start?

That LBPVita sale is wrong I bet ya, it is only down to 31.49

Not sure where those other prices are coming from, but they’re wrong. It says original price 14.99, so that is about some other game but not LBPV.

I can’t see them selling LBPV for such a low price, which is around the more expensive PSP games. There are no good full retail AAA PSVita games released fall 2012 selling for such low prices…

128

Well, for LittleBigPlanet on PSP, it hasn’t been reduced in price.

Nor has the PS Vita version. Why did you get the links wrong? and why is it the only game on the list not to get [PSP] written next to it?

How more useless can SCEE be?

Yeah it is meant to be LBPV, but from 34.99 down to 31.49 Euro (like it was a month ago too), they just mixed up the other prices with something else.

I think a bad copy/paste error. And it really sucks for those that were thinking they would have a great deal on it today.

CHeck out the stores though people, I bought LBPVita for 17.99 in The Netherlands, a phsyical copy you can sell again used if you’re done with it and earn some money back!

@TheMART

if that is the case it should not be on this post as lbp vita has only had a plus discount added to it, the base price has not been reduced at all so that would make it a plus only discount and this post is about discounts for everyone with plus members getting an additional amount off.

i still think they will fix it and the price will be as low as that, but i have been wrong many,many times before :)

131

Wow. so they didn’t even fix the discount on LBP? when a poll for worst company in europe comes. i’ll know which company i will vote on ;)

I really hope so hayzink for everyone that wants it, but 7.49 Euro for such a main title, again, is on the level of the more expensive PSP games.

Heck, a game like Resistance older, certainly not as good as LBPVita and more expensive? Doesn’t make sense.

@TheMART

if its plus bound then a massive discount could be on the cards first.

lbp vita was under $10 in usa a while back so it has had a big discount before just not here.

lbp karting went to under £10 in usa also and that was not too long before it went into igc.

LBPV under 10 bucks in USA? Link me. Lowest thats been there was the Xmas sale at 17.99 USD for PS+ members. Not under 10 as far as I know.

USA gets many of those 50% to 70% sales. Like Persona 4 Golden for 20, Soul Sacrifice for 17 or something. Never happens here.

LBP Karting bro… Don’t compare that game with LBPVita please. LBP Karting failed so hard in both gameplay (Modnation Racers, where they build LBP Karting on is so, so much better) and in sales.

Why resistance is still at the same price O_O

Nice, LBP Vita and Little Deviants for me. I’d like to see some DLCs on sale, especially for Gravity Rush and MotorStorm RC.

137

Is this a horrible, horrible joke? Because im not laughing. This sales are awful, to say the least. You constantly drop the ball. I would be happy to buy a lot of games if you had anything as good as the USA sales. You really need to step up!

138

Something seems wrong with LBP Vita in the NZ Store. According to this it should be

LittleBigPlanet
Was €14.99/£11.99/$22.95, now €7.49/£5.99/$11.47
Additional 10% off for PS Plus members

But when I click on the link here in NZ it’s $60.95 or $54.86. I assume somethings wrong? The rest of the sale looks good!!

It seems everyone handling the store is occupied with Gamescom. I know it is a big outing but would ut not be a smart move to have someone tend to the customers, the ones who actually enables you to make money?
The whole mess with the summersale has been managed poorly with incorrect prices, missing games in store, lack of communication.

LBP price has now been updated to £5.99. It’s the Vita version too.

Gotta say: props to Sony on LBPVita.

Not sure if they just made a true mistake putting out that ridiculous low price on this blog yesterday and said we now have to put that price on PSN or it was truly meant to be that price from start

However, everybody go out and get LBPVita for 6.74 Euro if you’re a PS+ member. That is the most insane deal there has been on EU PS+ for a great PSVita game.

Too bad that I bought the retail copy months ago, but hey this gives some hope on better deals on PSVita games on PSN in the future.

142

@140 yes excellent news. I didn’t think it was a typo. Even if it was a typo Sony have honored it. Just gonna wait to see if LBP vita is on PS+ next month before I buy it. I’m also gonna pick up Thomas was alone for £2.50, heard good things about it. :D

143

@TheMart about 20 or 30 comments in this post only of you hating on sony. This time even for no reason :D

In the corner with you and play only tetris on GBmono for a day!

@143

Mas you must have reading problems, as my last few posts are pretty positive. But it is true, Killzone Mercenary beta is the most promising thing SCEE has done for me this summer with hardly anything in their sales compared to what SCEA/USA got.

That is just a direct comparison that no one can’t deny.

Luckely I never bought any of the underpowered weak Nintendo handhelds, I’ll grab my Lynx with 4096 colors at the same time instead.

145

@TheWalMart 99% of your posts are brain junk like you made 20 posts about little big planet psp being on sale and how it cant be the vita version blablabla turns out you are wrong and you dont even have the balls to admit it.

Thanks very much for honouring the price drop of lbp Vita Sony folks! Bought :-)

@MASPALOMAZ

you seem to have developed a personal issue with themart, perhaps you should hit this on the head now.

if you have an issue with his posts ignore them, he does not insult people or single them out on an ongoing basis, perhaps you should follow suit!

just a suggestion

@145

Mas… I just did in the last post… Even said props to Sony for that. You really got reading problems or are just straight blind.

Now you can either start eating carrots or buy glasses, pick one.

Nice of Sony to drop the LBP Vita price, great deal.

Problem is, I can’t buy it on either the Vita store or online.

@TargetFinderKing

you posted this in the gta thread which makes it on topic there are you just going to post the same post in every other topic and go off topic on them?

151

Does anybody know if play station is coming out with Halo for PSP Vita
