    This was a pretty amazing week, we got Duke on the vita so that was a pleasant surprise. Although I do have to say I wasn’t really happy about the sale, I mean pinball is cool… But making it the only sale for the vita is not so cool…

    Can I ask whether there will be a flash sale next week so I can get a psn card before time… Would appreciate a reply

    Happy 2015 to ally fellow gamers… Greatness Awaits

  • Also this week in Playstation, PS+ stopped working on all accounts except the primary user on PS4, when PS+ is supposed to cover everyone using the PS4 if it is the primary PS4 of the PS+ subscriber. I know Sid Shuman answered one of my tweets that it is being investigated, but I am still frustrated that my son can’t play Destiny with his friends for the 3rd day in a row when it had always worked fine before, and there has been almost no mention anywhere on this problem. It needs to be acknowledged and fixed!

  • We need weekly sales on digital ps4 titles, for someone who’s gone all digital this gen; it’s a real disappointment to see disc games get all the sales. Especially when, digital is cheaper for devs and publishers.

    You don’t need to match steam just show the people doing what you want (going digital), some love more then twice a year.

  • @cpuking2007 #32 …. I absolutely agree with you. In fact its more profitable for deva to sell digital copies, because people that buy physical copies can borrow that game to friends and make trade ins therefore reducing the number of people buying the game. That’s why I believe Sony should emphasize on digital sales, that way even though the price will be lower than the physical copies, they will sell more and make more revenue…. Sometimes I wonder if the market strategy team at Sony just plays video games all day…lol

    Oh by the way if there are any serious Soul Sacrifice Delta fans out there add me up soviet_linux , I always look for new partners to take on hard bosses.

    Fingers crossed for 15 for 15 sale….@Justin Massongill thanks for a quick reply old sport

  • Great IGC games this first month of 2015!!! And a lot of new titles dropping in the next 6-8 weeks as well. It’s a struggle inside all the time with me, because I try to predict if something will end up on + or not, or if I should just buy it now. The time is 8 weeks. Either it’s going to be: “OMG why didn’t I get this sooner!”, “OMG, I knew it’d be crap”, & “OMG I’m glad I waited 8 weeks, as it’s 50% off now”. In the end I’m just trying to save a buck. Remember, I may go & buy a game on release day, but for the most part my caution with 98% of the other releases fund those “Gotta get it now” splurges.

    OK so after all that blathering nonsense, is Sony planning any sort of sale on the PS Blog GotY winners???
