  • DuckTales Woo-oo!

  • Can’t wait for DuckTales, and I have heard good things about Stealth Bastard, will likely get it also, I’ve always loved games where you sneak around.

  • Nothing for vita today, hope to get MGS HD Collection for vita as Sony Europe already did

  • Oh my god, psmove owners must buy Sorcery for $5 is a steal!!!!! , i wish sony is working on a sequel on the ps4.

  • Wow… way to confuse the crap out of this. DuckTales, Stealth Inc, Cloudberry Kingdom and Ibb & Obb don’t come out tomorrow. You guys might want to make that a bit more clear.

    • Thanks, yeah let me look into this now; it looks like we may need to make some corrections! Some of these games listed may not have their discounts occur this week, which are mainly the PSN PLay titles.

  • Still no vita love -_-… why must we wait till the end of the month? Good thing I didnt re activate my plus membership yet, I woulda lost a couple weeks for nothing. (Do not own ps3, only vita)

  • So many indie games! My poor money!

  • DuckTales!!!!!!

  • One thing I have to say is Sony stop giving out the same game on different consoles. It’s a waste of space for a game slot. Gamers who have both PS3 & Vita (like me) will get annoyed because we have already played the content. If you have to make these kinds of games for free, they should be free for both consoles cross buy or not. Don’t make a game free for one console then months later make it free for a different console. This has happen once before.

  • woah: Quite some deep discounts for PlayStation Move games! Gonna definitely pick those up, as well as make some pre-orders!
    Can’t wait to pick up Jet Set Radio on PS3 tomorrow & cross-play with the PSVita copy from a while-back!

  • Yeah! i’ve been really looking forward to play jet set radio , i already got the vita version , but i dont have a vita (Yet) , might pick up sorcery for that price , i heard that game is preety good :D

  • I love you guys, but this piece needs a lot of revisions. You need to be clear about when many of these games are coming out. I’m assuming from a previous post that the summer promotion games aren’t coming out until later and that these are preorders. You need to be clear.
    And Draw Slasher is a Vita game, not a PS3 game.
    I still love you, though.

    • YEah thank you for the feedback; I think some fixes to this post are incoming, mainly with the PSN Play content being featured here, which shouldn’t be the case. Though those discounts are coming! Apologies for any confusion

  • How about more psvita sales or offerings? Killzone Mercenary beta is coming soon, you kow? how about Tearaway demo? heck sony should make mandatory to all first party games on the vita to offer a ps plus incentive like demos, betas ( for those with online multiplayer ), isnt the vita supposed to be the ultimate social connected handheld machine? time to start flexing those muscles dont you think?

  • Nice! Jet Set Radio, ibb & obb and Datura will be mine!

    • Great! JSR and Datura sale are hitting tomorrow. You can hop on the Ibb and Obb preorder this week as well and the game comes out August 6.

  • this is the lamest drop yet for me

  • And the crappy month for Vita continues.

  • i want SFxTekken n UMVC discount please, have the cartridge but i prefer digital version for VIta

  • Ducktails is coming! yay!

    Hey, listen to the PS-Focused Go For Rainbow! Podcast by a fellow PS Plus-er!

    It’s spiffy!
    New episode each Friday.


  • So is the summer blast over? there wont be more sales in this next 2 weeks?

    • Summer Blast will be ending with tomorrow’s Store Update, but we have some great titles in PLAY that will be on discount. There may be other offers throughout the month as well that we haven’t talked about yet, so stay tuned!

  • sigh…nothing good at all. We already had the Vita Jet Set so it seems like a waste to take up a slot for the ps3 version.

    Also disappointed in the lake of good sales.

  • @11 Gokugt25 Sorcery is the best psmove exclusive game i have played. Hopefully sony is working on a sequel and make the camera free roam and more open world and you have your move selling title sony but sadly i dont think sorcery sold as much as they wanted it to guaranteed a sequel.

  • I didn’t want this Jet set game the last time you tried to give it to us, don’t want it now.

    While Discounts are always good to have, this is now week three of discounting mediocre to terrible games, so nothing for me yet again.

    Well nothing but being able to back up my saves since last year.

  • The games you listed like Ducktales are NOT available tomorrow. They are available for PREORDER tomorrow. Please clarify that.

  • Also, i’d like to make a suggestion for Tales of Graces F as the IGC game for August. Not only will it give us an rpg (which won that genre poll you guys took months ago but haven’t actually given us), but it will be good promotion for the upcoming Tales of Xilia.

  • I really wish the Vita games were more intermixed. I personally own both, but for those who don’t consecutive weeks of “nothing new” is not as much fun. I would love to see more Vita love in the form of sales and titles for Vita (be they indie or retail titles, as opposed to PSP games).

    Overall my impressions of the PS+ program are still overwhelmingly positive and I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into the program. I don’t always have something I am really looking forward to every month, but my back-log is now so full i don’t really see that as a negative.

  • I think clarification should be given that none of the summer of PLAY games are available tomorrow. They are available to preorder. :/

    • Yep; we’ll clarify that shortly. The PSN Play games are preorder starting tomorrow with the PS Store update.

  • can’t wait for ducktales! thanks for the + discount!

  • Normally, I’m really satisfied with the PS+, I’m a member since the first day. But, for me, July is the worst update since the beginning.

    I’m tired of the FPS and Fighting games. I want more plateformers, action games and avdentures games and not only T or M games rating.

    I have children and each week they are frustrated because 80% of games are T or M rating. I wish a change for the PS+ in the next month.

    Sorry for my english, but I don’t have french service in Canada from Sony.

  • Stealth INC is on the top of my list this week. Hope to get some new info on DLC for Guacamelee soon. Oh and hey Konami, please release Castlevania LOS:MIF on the Vita. It would be so sweet.

  • Sure, I’ll buy Sorcery for $5.

    Been a day 1 Plus subscriber and it has been more than worth it. Probably the best subscription service I have ever taken part in. Keep this service rollin’ with value and I will always be a part of Plus!

  • Well, I’ve had Sorcery on my wishlist for awhile since the 1-hr. trial actually impressed me . . . for $5, sounds like it’s time to finally get it.

  • Why are people surprised by the sloppy error filled nature of this post?

    That’s the standard for the PSN staff (or morgan anyway) lots of errors, laziness, confusion and ignoring the customers.

    At least other members of the staff are better, but we have the worst one working the Plus content sadly.

  • To put a positive spin on “nothing for me this week”, at least I have been able to whittle down my huge backlog of PS3 games.

  • Give us AC Brotherhood or Hitman Absolution for free please… Sony Europe has already given Hitman Absolution to their members.

  • Draw Slasher on PS3?
    Is that a typo?
    I thought it was only on Vita.

  • ModNation Racers Road Trip, Little Deviants, Unit 13, Dokuro, F1 2011, Hot Shots Golf, MLB 13 The Show, MUD-Motocross World Championship, Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, Ragnarok Odyssey, Resistance Burning Skies, Smart As, Sonic&All Stars Racing Transformed would benefit from discounts.

  • Thanks for the updated. Here’s my IGC wishlist:

    God of War (all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
    Grand Theft Auto (all games in the series)
    Hitman Absolution
    Hotline Miami
    Machinarium (Vita)
    Max Payne 3
    Metal Gear Rising
    Metal Gear Solid HD (PS3), digital version of MGS4
    Red Dead Redemption
    Red Faction Guerrilla & Armageddon
    Uncharted 1 & 2
    Velocity Ultra

    Also, could you add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store? It’s available in all regions except North America, and it’s also the only MGS game I haven’t played!

  • stealth inc+cross buy=instabuy for me or pre order in this case. might pick up a ps move game too

  • Some nice deals! Datura always seemed pretty interesting, so, I’ll definitely grab that for $2.50.

    Question for Morgan, though: just double checking, but, today’s the last day for the PSN Summer Blast sale, correct?

  • My PSMove says Thank You!

  • Is that a typo or is Cloudberry Kingdom only coming out for the PS3? I thought it was on the Vita as well?

  • DUCKTALES, SUCKAS!!!!!!! Awesome. :)

  • Hey Morgan!

    Where are the love for Vita? And why do you guys are still marking a Vita game as a PS3 game? The inverse doesn’t happen. The PS3 is always the star of the show. Is USA Sony really caring about Vita? And when the PS4 become available, what will happen to Vita? Total forgetfulness? Is it fair?

    PS+ is still awesome, but i’m starting to believe that’s it only applies to PS3 owners.

    Thanks for reading.

  • Appreciate the move sales, thanks. At $5, it’s going to be hard not to pick up sorcery. And I wasn’t aware Draw Slasher was also a ps3 title, is it move compatible as well? As always, more sales and discounts (especially on vita titles) please!

  • Duck Tales from 14.99 to 11.99 for PS Plus members lame discount and crap are you kidding me?

  • Too much indie games. We can play all the indie games for free on our phones. We bought a console for real games from real developers.

    • We think that Indie games offer a great experience on PlayStation that you can’t get elsewhere. You’ll still be getting the big AAA games with content you can’t get elsewhere, but through creating a welcoming environment for devs of all types, you’ll see greater gaming experiences overall on PlayStation. And we like to support those guys with great PS Store events like PLAY, and Day 1 discounts through PS Plus.

  • @Morgan Hey Morgan!! Please put Just Cause 2 back into the IGC! This is jsr’s second time on the igc,

    • well, it was the PS Vita version of JSR that came through last time. This version is the PS3 version. But thanks for the suggestion!

  • I was hoping for more full games discounts like last week.

  • Life is like a hurricane…

  • Sweet deals on Datura and Sorcery! Jet Set Radio isn’t my cup of tea, but these sales really make me feel I’m still getting tons of value from my Plus membership.
