The Count Lucanor looks pretty cool. I’ll keep an eye out for that on the Vita

What is going on with the PS4 version of Psycho Pass for PS+ members? There are 2 listings for it on the store, one says download but clicking it does nothing, it doesn’t even add the game to the library it just says purchased with no way to actually download the game. The second listing has the game at full price. Sort it out please. Thanks.

the vita version is free for ps+, not the ps4 version


The PS4 version is free for Plus users in the US store. When do we get ours?

@ Grumpy. Both versions were given to US plus members and a listing on the PS4 store now shows it as free for EU members. However, as I posted above, clicking the download button does nothing other than change the word download to purchased.

When’s Shock Troopers, Blazing Star, Sengoku 3 coming out on PS4? Seems like it’s mostly the Neo Geo games I don’t want coming out before the ones I do want.

Why isn’t Australia gettin Atari flashback classics volume 3? We got 1 and 2 so I can’t see any reason to not give us 3

What about 2064 Read Only Memories? PS4 version is listed there when it has already been released a long time ago. Shouldn’t it be the Vita version we’re still awaiting in Europe?

you chose to highlight atari flashback classics over 2064 or little red lie? really?

Little red lies looks very interesting!

Any more info on the PS4 ps+ version of psycho pass like America gets?
