  • Morgan, enough with the fighting games. Seriously, we don’t want them anymore.

  • Star Wars Pinball Free. Awesome. Muramasa Rebirth, PS Plus Discount: Awesome. New Little King’s Story, PS Plus Discount: Awesome. The only complaint I have is that I don’t have enough time to play all these games. Thanks PS Plus Team!

  • Each another update is just a bigger joke.

    DEMO !?!?!?
    AVATARS? !!

    Escape Plan DLC sales

  • I’m exited to play Star Wars Pinball.
    I’d probably buy Guacamelee and DiveKick if I didn’t already have too many games to play.

  • @48 So your an old school plus member as well. I remember the days when we got A PSN, A Mini, and PS1 Game as our line up. Not to mention free themes and Avatars. I also remember getting The Saga Essential collection from plus. Good times.

  • I’ve asked this on the separate blog post for the KZ Mercenaries beta, but I don’t think Guerrilla responded to it. If we’re Plus members AND have the codes from E3@PS Home, are those codes still useful?

  • @Randc7 (51)

    Stop crushing my hopes and dreams of getting Tekken Tag 2 on PS+!! (Even if it’s just a discount)

  • A little weak this time around but, still puts the competition to shame.

  • @59 – Saying that PS+ is better than XBL Gold (although you are absolutely correct) is like saying that Amy Winehouse is better-looking than Rosie O’Donnell. Like comparing warm beer to cold coffee; both suck, and if something merely sucks less than its competitor, it still sucks.

  • You hear that sound? That’s me beating my head against my desk in frustration.

    I suppose I should expect these kind of sales given that the PS3 has a bunch of weird indie type games that just don’t appeal to me. Maybe I’m just getting old. Whatever the case, I don’t like it.

  • Pretty sad update this week, guys. Some Pinball DLC (which I bought on day one) and yet another fighting game, for PSP no less. When is this fighting game kick going to end? Seriously!!! When you give out the entire PSN library of fighting games? However, I will gladly pick up New Little King’s Story and Guacamelee. Other than that, not much for me.

  • That NA PS plus sure plays a mean pinball

  • And yet ANOTHER psp game….

  • Do you already have a timeframe of when you’re gonna start talking about the PS4 ? And how plus is going to be integrated with it?

  • @49 tylerh Huh….my bad it’s listed everywhere as releasing the same time ps3 and 360. Still….I stick by what I say about the Drop. Heck there is still a description for The Red Star from a few weeks ago that describes the previous weeks PS2 classic release. Copy/paste ftw. These are the things I speak of. Lack of effort. :D

  • Vita players, enjoy!

    @Morgan, have the issues with Tomb Raider for PS+ users been fixed? I have friends that were not able to buy it and it seems to be related to the Quantum Conundrum unlock key.


    • You can contact CS on the Tomb Raider issue that affected some and they’ll be able to assist:

      Mon – Sun 6:00AM – 10:00PM Pacific

  • Morgan, PS1 and PS2 games no will enter in IGC anymore?

    I want Dino Crisis 2, but don’t have a PS1 games sale or they free in IGC.

  • Hello there

    HeySONY thanks for prebirthday gifts :)

    lots of AAA discounts, BEST UPDATE EVER imao.

  • Hold on – how can there be a last chance for a Street Fighter x Tekken sale when it was never even discounted? I know fighters aren’t popular with many PS+ members but I was looking forward to this sale when it was announced. Otherwise, great update and thanks for always keeping us posted, Morgan.

  • Looks like that weird PS+ smear campaign thingy is still going on. It’s cool. I always find a good laugh in these Plus update articles. While they whine, I play.

  • any chance of cashback for the PS Vita Summer Select Sale like those PLAY titles?

  • Hey Morgan, what can we expect from Sony at this week’s Gamescom? BIG news? Any ATOM BOMB dropping? Is there going to be a stream to watch a keynote or something? ;)

  • Doubt about KillZone Beta:

    I received a code and now the game is going to be Public Beta Access…. So… Is the PSN Code useful, yet????

    • the code is still useful, or you can get it at through PS Plus. either way, you’ve got access! but important note i’s not full public beta. Only for those who recieved a voucher, or for PS Plus members. everyone else, not at this time.

  • Wow, didn’t expect such great sales this week! I though the Japanese Vita sale was awesome but having ANOHTER sale with Vita stuff is really awesome. Defiantly getting Guacmelee and Munet Blob alongside UMvC3, Metal Gear HD Collection, and Monkey Ball thanks to the awesome sales. I cant believe your giving us TWO Vita IGC tittles this week with not just giving out Star Wars Pinball but Darkstalkers PSP too, really cool of you guys :)

    Man, these past few week have been really cool to the Vita and having discounts for the incoming wave of excellent indie games on Vita is great, hope you guys have that “buy all of them and get 10 bucks back” type thing like the PLAY sale you had the past few weeks.

    Thanks for the awesome update PSN NA and I look forward to playing really great Vita games :)

  • sometimes i wonder what’s the point…

  • Oh, btw I’m talking about number 26’s comment. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard at such a crock comment in a loooong time. Stay off the drugs SiriusCJS. You’re not very convincing.

  • Is Guacemelle! not cross buy then for the sale?

    You guys are killing me with all these games lately I want and have been buying. Rayman, soul sacrifice, muramasa, and now Guacemelle. My poor wallet and right on the back of the steam summer sale too.

  • Might be time to pick up Guacamelee, I’m not a fan of the Luchador but am a fan of the “metroidvania” type games. For 50% off it’s a worthy risk.

  • Hey, Morga.

    sony when the promotion makes a plus (eg giving three months to pay the year) is that I need to renew and want to make an offer like that ….

  • Divekick, Tales About a blob, and ms germinator discounts!! you also have the prices for the mutant blob attack games switched around.

  • PS+ is the best! Really great discount. I’ll never catch up on my back log if this goes on. I’d like to see more JRPG for the Vita, which I always dump tons of hours on to. Hope we see a Vita sale spike and get some love from Japanese developers. :)

  • Thank you Morgan!….

    About this Week…

    The PSVita Sales is fantastic!….

    The only problem are much Old PSP figthing games for PSN + members again! >> That´s the greatest negative point.

    And… Now PSVita are receiving attention one more time…. Thank you!

    I´ll see you people soon in KillZone multiplayer \o/

  • Tons of love for my dear PSVITA!!

  • Hey Morgan, have you heard anything of more psp games being compatible with the Vita? Also I feel there are some prices for PSP games on the store that are very unfair. Most of the games that are $20 you can find them at 5 on a retail store. Like Dead or Alive Paradise, is at $30 on the PS store and $14.99 on the retail stores. Do you think this can be fixed with some games? Thanks and great update, I’m loving the sales!

  • I guess im gonna have to end up canceling my PS4 pre-order…. your just giving out to many discounts… i cant save money like this ….

  • Nice, still playing my soul sacrifice from last week and here comes some interesting discount, bad month for my vita-wallet

  • it’s nice to see that ps plus gets access to the killzone beta but i feel like i wasted my time trying to get the early access on ps home since i already have ps plus

  • I really love the discounts. They somehow offset the free games that are available on PS+. As a VITA owner, i can’t thank you guys enough. Great discounts this week all around. Thanks Morgan :)

  • I was going to say “Nothing for me this week” and then… i saw the Fan Expo Sale… I’ll be getting Guacamelee! for sure!!

  • Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is 7.99 not 9.99, the one that is 9.99 is the premium bundle

  • Guys, can you make so that people can use several accounts on one Vita? Or make so that people can switch PSNs on the fly, without switching accounts. From US to Japanese, for example. You cut Vita compared to PSP, so give people some substitute, if not accounts, then stores. Now, situation with Vita resembles situation with Xbox One, when it was announced.

    I really don’t know why Sony hates Vita so much. And don’t want to make it perfect for everyone.

    Or you can make subaccounts or whatever. Be more flexible. I am tired of switching accounts. And not be able to play my digital games bought in different PSNs from one account. Why are real games unlocked and digital locked?

  • Some nice sales this week, I’ll definitely be picking some of them up.

    As a side note, Morgan, you got my hopes up about finally purchasing the Tomb Raider Bundle, but when I contacted Customer Service, they told me that there is still no solution.

    This is really annoying. The sale ends in 24 hours and we still can’t buy it.

  • Morgan and team..

    This is what I love to see. Great sales, great games.. This is why I have been a Plus subscriber since day 1. Keep that vita love rolling. ^^

  • I’ve always wanted to try Guacamelee. Sweet nipples of joy!

  • @Morgan

    I think it should be stated (for the millionth time) for people who don’t know, that FC3 Blood Dragon is standalone and not DLC, so you do not need the game to play this. I’ve been waiting for a sale to hop onto this as I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.

  • Well PS plus.. Its been good knowing you.. We shall meet again this holiday season..

  • @morgan also please tell me Gamescom will be introducing us to cheaper and bigger Vita cards I needs it, my precious.

  • PS+ for NA is disappointing, might as well call it Vita+

  • OOOOOH BOY! Another PSP fighting game. That is EXACTLY what people have been asking for. I’ve heard “you know what? we never get enough PSP fighter in Vita PS+ so we really need more” a lot. Oh wait, I think only Sony hears that in whatever world they live in where they claim to listen to feedback and then do the direct opposite of all the feedback they get.

    Also, I do enjoy this Japan game sale on Vita, we need more sales like this! :)
