    I’m pretty sure Cross-Buy is up to the developers.
    So, most Sony DEVELOPED games will have it, but it’s a little silly to expect it of every title.

  • Hope this weeks sales are better.
    Didn’t see Catherine on your Sales Post last week, and yet, the only one I picked up.

    I have realized that the players blogs are usually the only reason I even come to your website.
    Most of you don’t even play games, so to get information from you about them is non-existant so why bother.

    Love next months IGC lineup, and had to remember that they all are released tuesday this month.
    The month notice in advance, was confusing.

    Child of Light for Vita….Woot!.
    Now just have to wait a year to get a sale price to make it Crossbuy.

    Its the same freaking game, so why have to buy it twice?

    Also, anyone considering PSN movies. DON’T. One time download, and if something happens to your hd, memory card, customer service does not care.

  • The only thing that needs to be added to the Guacamelee! title is “Combat” and its a million seller for sure!

  • So uh…where’s Suikoden II? lol

  • When will you guys be announcing the PS+ discounts and the weekly sale?

  • “When will you guys be announcing the PS+ discounts and the weekly sale?”

    Tomorrow morning, I imagine.

  • @28 Thank you.

  • Just Sniper Elite 3 for me this week. Thinking of grabbing Guacamelee on PS4. Loved it on Vita/PS3, but not sure I’d have the time to play it!

  • Child of Light, Cross Buy and/or Cross Play?

  • @ Rezolution77: You can spread your hate all you want, but please don’t spread misinformation. They updated PSN years ago to allow for re-downloading of purchased video content. I’ve personally done so with episodes of Young Justice that I bought digitally. They rolled PSN video content into Video Unlimited, so purchased content is ALSO fully streamable to Video Unlimited enabled devices, like the PS4. You don’t even have to download the videos. Blatantly lying on the Blog is pretty low, dude, even for you.

    @ The Drop: I might pick up Guacamelee if DrinkBox is able to setup a discount for previous owners. Considering all the included DLC and NEW CONTENT for this release, I’m perfectly fine with buying it again, just not at full price. I’ve still got plenty of physical games that I haven’t even had time to start yet, so it’ll need to be an attractive price to get me to jump on it.

  • Is there any chance we’ll see this version of Guacamelee on the PS Vita sometime soon? BTW, I can’t wait to get Muramasa Rebirth and Child of Light on Tuesday.:D

  • Welcome to the drop. The most useless post on the internet. No prices, no info, half the actual releases.

    Seriously, ryan, why do you know NOTHING about the games going on sale in TWO DAYS?!? Maybe do a little research before you post. Yknow, check these developers websites and stuff like you always suggest we do. You ARE the social media guy, aren’t you?

  • Beyond! Whatever that means….

  • Where is naruto storm revolution demo, and naruto will be digital download too?

  • Why is the drop only for the US blog, I’d love something like this on the EU one too. I want to know if there will be a demo for Child of Light on the vita in EU before wednesday, so I can decide whether or not to pre-order the game.

  • Any news about a discount/upgrade deal for owners of Guacamelee on PS3?

  • I don’t know if Drinkbox Studios should be supported with the way they ignore PS3 and Vita owners, people who supported Guacamelee first. No word of this content even being released as DLC later

  • @ 65 – Just don’t pre order the game. It’s not like they will run out of digital copies anyways.

  • I am also wondering if you will announce Ratchet and Clank Trilogy for Vita for North America. EU has it coming out in a week or two. I know that Sony Executives recently announced that Vita won’t be getting any AAA games, but please don’t abandon your faithful Vita owners. I have a PS4 (and PS3) but don’t want my Vita to be a companion piece for the PS4. I want stand alone games.

  • @60

    Obviously you have never bought one.
    Videos CAN NOT be redownloaded from Vita OR PS3, not too mention not being playable on PS4.

    Thats a FACT.

  • Better know the TRUTH, before you call someone a liar.

  • ^
    Hey man, you’re looking pretty silly now.

    They fixed that a few months ago, as I can re-download videos just fine from my PS3 and Vita.

  • As for your Video Unlimited comment, its a pay per month service.
    And is not available on Vita from what I see, so doubt its on PS3.

    Unless you are lacking a brain, why on earth would I want to pay every month to watch movies I already own.
    You obviously must be lacking.

  • Silly?
    Then how is it I go to my downloads on vita, and nothing there.

    When I try on PS3 it shows download, but when clicked does nothing.

  • You clearly didn’t just check, or they would be there.

    Check your entire download list.

  • Also why woud Cutomer Service tell me it a one time download?

    Don’t believe, Call them.

  • How about you check yourself.

  • On what exactly?

    My entire download list on Vita doesn’t show anything unless I have not downloaded them already.

    On PS3, it shows, but will not download.

  • Already did. Newb.

    I meant for anyone disbelieving.

  • You either:

    A – Have only ever rented videos digitally
    B – Are on a different account

    Fact is though, that I can delete all the anime from my hard drive, and then re-download it.

    Source: I’m on my second hard drive, and didn’t do a back up.

  • Wish I’d waited for the Vita version of Child of Light. I’d have completed it by now if I’d been able to play while watching TV.

  • So why does nintendo already have ANOTHER WORLD and playstation doesn’t?!! Exclusivity period bought by nintendo or what?

  • Really don’t understand Y Gundam Reborn is digital only when EU has it on disc. This game will sellout in stores.

  • Done arguiing with you @80.

    Double checked AGAIN to make certain, yup, clicked it on PS3 and nothing.
    Doubt me, call.

  • Oddly enough, no replies from social media to disprove my statement.

  • ^

    I too can re-download my videos just fine.
    Sounds like you have a problem with your account.

  • @80

    All video downloads are a one-time download unless you call Playstation Support with a valid reason for them to authorize a second download. And Playstation Support can only reauthorize a redownload one time, so you can download any video twice. Ever.

  • So unhappy with the PS3 gen and the death of quality turn based / ATB JRPGs. Dissatisfied with modern gaming as a whole on PS3 and PS4.

    *converts to PC gaming and Nintendo*

  • @ 87

    That support line needs to get with the times then, because that’s false information.

  • @everybody

    “Videos purchased on the video store cannot be re-downloaded once it has been downloaded to either a PS3 or PS Vita/PSP system”


  • lol at neuropunk spamming every other article with “the death of RPGs”

  • Guacamelee how much is it , I am surprised the x1 is giving Guacamelee as the free game not bad I will get it on my x1 for free . I pre ordered and already downloaded sniper 3 for ps4 . puddle is great I hope it is free since I already bought it for my vita ?

  • neuropunk Nintendo lol whoooo 5 games a year and no multy platform games , way to go

  • In the past, I have downloaded a movie to a PSP & years later to my PS3.

  • @exChardude

    Go to the Playstation website. Starts with Look up article 1105, “PSN Video Owner Terms”, last updated 3/18/2014. It very clearly states “Videos purchased on the video store cannot be re-downloaded once it has been downloaded to either a PS3 or PS Vita/PSP system”. I already posted the direct link, but it’s awaiting moderation.

  • I’m not sure what to tell you then.

    I’m not sure why some people can download their stuff, but others can’t.

  • Any good deals this week? Waiting for MGS Ground Zeroes to go sub-$20 again. If Kojima would have shown the MGSV 30-min demo the week OF E3 instead of AFTER I would have bit when MGS:GZ was $18 and change :-(

  • Maybe you could have at least let us know what was going to be on sale for the second week of the blast sale like you have every other year instead of leaving everyone hanging. I dont know whether to throw in for the ps3 version of BF4 or see if the PS4 version will be on sale.

  • DecadanceFantasy

    Hey. I might try the Child of Light demo on my PS Vita. I tried it before on my PS3 but it wasn’t playing sound at all so I deleted it. Hopefully all the components will work this time around.

  • @maltliquor23

    They might announce sales tomorrow (Monday) during the PS+ update. Grab yourself a King Cobra and kick back until then.
