PS Plus: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Free on Vita for Members

This week, PlayStation Plus members can take to an ever-changing race track when Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed enters the PS Vita Instant Game Collection. The ‘transformed’ part references the fact that your go kart isn’t always cemented to the pavement – if your route should all of a sudden require your little kart to, say, fly, it will. Yep, your vehicle is constantly morphing back and forth between kart, plane and boat, so you’ll have to master each type if you want to win.

You can download Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on PS Vita and take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/24.

  • Please Kristine let everyone know over at Sony that we want a Persona 4 Golden sale. Your Tearaway sale was so good and unexpected since I don’t even own a Vita yet but I still went ahead and got it anyways.

  • Thanks!

    My vita IGC wish list:
    – Sly Cooper thieves in time
    – The Walking Dead season 1
    – Velocity Ultra

  • It’s xmas and boxing day week and we get the weakest/worst line up from the Holiday sale?

    Shouldn’t this week have the best/most sales?

    EU region got great deals, particularly on Vita games we don’t. Xbox and Steam are doing good sales. Don’t you want to match that and make money?

    Oh well, nothing to check for me this week when the store updates, guess all my xmas money is going to another game company.

  • I still want The Last of Us sale :( Europe got it WITH the SEASON PASS for a discount price!! wtf man :/ I’m still torn about it, I really expected a lot of great sales this week and we get the weakest sale out of all 4 atm :/ with that said at least add The Walking Dead season pass :(

    so much for boxing day & holidays :(

  • @51 Persona 4 Golden was on sale for $19.99 in October & November.

  • As far as sales, nothing for me this week. I might make that jump on Dragon Fantasy if the bundle was offered for the Vita at that same price.

    Looking forward to trying Sonic Racing :)

  • Why Castle of Illusion has no discount in PS Store?

  • What happened to the flash sale? I went to buy Tearaway and its back to normal price. I thought the sale ran through Monday. Lame Sony…whats the point of a 2 day sale

  • Dear Sony,
    Please make this New Years resolution: In 2014 we will put Dark Cloud 1 and 2, and all 3 Xenosaga’s on the PSN because you love us very much and we want to give you our money.

  • I went through my entire list of PS+ downloads since I first became a subscriber last November. In roughly 13 months, these are the only games that I would actually play that came “free” with my paid subscription:

    Wild Arms
    Demon’s Souls
    Battlefield 3
    Hitman: Absolution
    Sleeping Dogs
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen
    Galaga Legions
    Saints Row: The Third
    BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend
    Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward
    Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention
    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
    Retro City Rampage
    Hotline Miami
    Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
    InFAMOUS 2
    Shadow of the Colossus
    Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
    Uncharted: Golden Abyss
    Soul Sacrifice
    Grid 2
    Borderlands 2
    Gravity Rush
    Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

    26 games, total. For a one-time investment of $29.99, I’d say my PS+ subscription is well worth it, even if we didn’t get any new games added for months.

    That said, aside from its obvious value, it would still be cool to receive more PSOne games and Vita titles, and far, far, far fewer indie selections. But, overall, I am quite pleased with the library offered in my first year as a subscriber. Definitely blows everything Microsoft offers out of the water.

  • Awesome game! Cannot wait to try this out on my Vita. Thanks Sony!

    Happy Holidays Playstation Faithful!

  • @GalatasarayEken

    The Last of Us is one of the greatest game of this generation. No offense, but it’s pretty silly that you are complaining about not having the proper discount when it was at 39.99 a while ago. It’s probably the best game you will play, just buy it for Christ sake.

  • I have some question.

    Why Vita user didn’t get instant collection same amount as PS3 ?
    As we pay for the subscription same price as PS3 but we only get 6 game in instant collection (which 3 of them didn’t change for a years)

    I feel the subscription isn’t worth enough for Vita user, even games on sale there are very few.

  • Dragon Fantasy Book 1 and 2 on sale on PS Plus as a bundle tomorrow for $8.39!! Glad I waited to get them! :D….hope those are for PS3. o.O

  • sonic all stars for me <3 good deal on diablo III too….holding off til the ps4 version come out

  • I boyght stuff on PSN store last 4 weeks, this looks like a week off for me :(

    Cmon Sony, give me a suprise sale tomorrow, I want to give you my money

  • To post 57: Did you actually read the blog? It said, “You can download Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/24.”

  • epic mickey 2? ps3 or vita version on sale?

  • So the Sonic game is only for Vita?

  • This sale is awful come on there are hundreds of other games to sell, Tales of Graces F, and Xillia, Way of the Samurai 4, tons of ps1 and ps2 classics for crying out loud already…


  • That free PS+ Sonic game only a Vita??? Aller chier tabarnac de criss a Sony!


  • looking forward to Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, and I may pick up Dragon Fantasy 1, if I had a penny more I’d get Castle of Illusion, the only game in that series I played was World of Illusion with Mickey and Donald.

  • I too would like to know if there is a sale next tuesday.

  • Isn’t Hotline Miami free on PS Plus just not long ago?

    Gonna pick up some Disneys for family X’mas!!

  • It’s great to see Sonic & All-Stars Racing FINALLY arriving at the back-end of December, but where is our promised DECEMBER release of Urban Freestyle? I specifically paid for PS+ after I bought a Vita during Black Friday, and now almost the entirety of December has been used up waiting for one game, and the second game that was promised is nowhere to be found. Pretty shoddy, Sony of NA.

  • Any chance of getting more PS3 games each m onth instead of Vita?

  • “Why Vita user didn’t get instant collection same amount as PS3 ?”
    Because it didn’t sell good at all, most people waited for it to drop in price which just hurts their revenue overall.

    I know i’ll never own one unless I get it free, too much like my psp.

  • What terrible TERRIBLE deals, apart from hotline miami that is a must for those of you who didn’t get it for free on plus a while back. Oh and the EU special sale for The Last of Us is a laugh also (29.99€ about 37$) since you can get it used now for 20$ or even less and I’ve seen it on sale on some online shops from 25 to 30 bucks.

    Really dissapointing as far as X-mas presents go…thanks for the sweater SONY.

  • “That said, aside from its obvious value, it would still be cool to receive more PSOne games and Vita titles”
    Why? I could understand maybe one PSONE game every few months but Vita having one game a month is ENOUGH

  • I have to laugh at anyone complaining about the sales this week. At least you get sales and free games, those of us on PS4 get nothing and if you ask anyone at Sony why, you get the silent treatment on here.

  • @#56 Both Dragon Fantasy’s are naturally cross-buy, so buying the bundle will get you both games for both systems.

  • Vita IGC have been stuck with Uncharted,Gravity Rush and Wipeout2048 for too long already. Please give us some new games in 2014.

  • Dragon Fantasy Book II for me! Been wanting to play this game because I loved the first one.

  • Dragon Fantasy Book I & II (bundle) is that cross buy?

  • Are those discounts only for PS+ ?

  • These sales were dynamite, I was able to pickup some great games on a budget!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I just picked up the Sonic game on Steam a couple weeks ago. Guess I’ll get a second copy for free. woot.

  • @39 Ragnarok Odyssey is a sure thing for the IGC, however I wouldn’t expect to see it before March. The reason I say that is because Xseed is coming out with Ragnarok Odyssey ACE mid-February 2014 in NA, which is an enhanced version of the original game (original DLC is cross compatible for ACE gamers if anyone was wondering). Of course it’s possible that Xseed will release the original game as a promotional tool, however since they share so many elements, I think it’s more likely that we’ll see a heavily discounted version of the over one year old game instead.

    Thanks for the great perks PS+ team. When it comes to multiplatform gaming I almost always snag the title for PC unless there is some value to me to have it on a Sony console, as Steam + Steam-redeemable sales from places like Amazon and Humble Bundle are able to offer great deals and normally the best looking games. However Sony has some of the best exclusives, esp. from Japan (whether imported or localized, which made it very easy to dismiss the Xbox One over the PS4… I just hope a patch for 3D Blu-Ray playback comes in soon, heh my PS3 still has some tricks to teach it’s older brother).

  • Sonic&All Stars Racing Transformed is imo one of the best psvita games so far, hopefully more people will play online now

  • Why do you always keep the Vita game for the end of the month?
    It’s more fair to make a rotation in turns

    And can’t you give me a peace of mind by telling us what are January games already?

  • It is the Season Pass for The Walking Dead will come out this year yet?

  • Can we have music on the PS VITA, when we launch a game? Just like the PS3 and PSP menu?
    it’s way “cooler” than the boring depressing devastating PS Vita background music

  • :( though there would be some good deals on the last week too bad i guess santa is tired

  • Why do you guys refuse to list the non-PS+ sale prices for the Holiday Sale stuff? It was there for the first two weeks, but this is the second straight week without that bit of information.

  • I’ll definitely be downloading this when it’s out! And Happy Holidays to everyone at Sony!

  • Still no Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon sale :/

  • Awesome update, as usual.

    @ CraddaPoosta

    Hey, you said something positive for once. Good for you. I knew you had it in you.

  • i wish malicious rebirth in ps vita is on sale this week.

  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, but my left analog stick is screwed up and i don’t know how to fix. :(
