  • Portable Ops doesn’t work with Vita.

  • I wallet is ready but I fear the safety of my HDDs and Memory Stick especially on my PS3 and Vita I don’t think they can take anymore of this.

  • @38 Do you think they will update the sale for the Vita section?
    Hatsune Miku F2nd is in the sale section with no price cut, and I was hoping Dragon Ball z Battle of Z Vita would go on sale with it’s ps3 conterpart, as I missed last year Golden sale. *sigh* Please Sony give a reason why or fix it. I really would like these two games to be on sale also.

  • @34 regarding Short Peace, I bought it for forty a few months ago and you get a digital version of the movie and the longest day game. I can’t imagine it would be different for the sale… so I think my info is right.

  • Best deals in a long time imo. Well, since the January or February Flash sale I think. I can’t remember which

    Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star
    Yakuza:Dead Souls
    The Guided Fate Paradox

    And I remember folks complaining about Love Max not being on sale a couple of months back during Aksys sale, well there you go, its only 10 bucks right now.

  • Zone of the Enders 1 HD Edition PS3 $4.00
    Zone of the Enders HD Collection PS3 $14.00
    Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner HD Edition PS3 $8.00

    It’s cheaper to buy them separetaly ??

  • The list is incorrect, it’s not Portable Ops the title on sale but Peace Walker. That one -does- work on the PSV~.

  • Not a bad sale still pretty easy to crush these prices if you look around though I just bought Natural doctrine from BB on clearence for 14.99.

  • aw seriously? I just bought Resident Evil like yesterday… sigh oh well

  • Thank you for releasing the Freedom Wars themes! i bought the KoukenGirls theme. :D
    Hope that the Soul Sacrifice Delta and No Heroes Allowed themes release over here as well!

  • Will the other 3 episodes for Revelations 2 be released on sale as well?

  • Would be great if we could click on the titles and see what the games actually are.

  • Great sale for Vita but please make Hatsune Miku F 2nd on sale also!

  • @toemberashes – i dont know how many times i said this. EU blogsite reports what EU team does. Best bet is giving your feedback on the EU blogsite not NA.

    Another big PS3 sale, disappointing for PS4. I’d like to see a sale on a game for PS4 that I like, just once. Big sale on one. Congratulations to those that care for these games, have fun.

  • Ive wanted Deception IV on Vita for a while but it’s only listed as a sale for PS3. Is it cross-buy? I haven’t checked but is the sale for it on thr Vita store as well? Pleeeeaaase?

  • Thanks for the sale on Senran Kagura – Bon Appetit! But you should put on sale the Gessen x Hebijo DLC on sale too since it’s like the another half of the game =/

  • Just checked on Deception IV: Blood Ties…

    PS3: Normally $59.99, discounted to $18.00
    PSV: Still $39.99


  • Didn’t need that $80 anyways. Thanks for the sale, guys!

  • @ (7) + skiernan and + Chieh Chen:

    Remember beyond those, there are a few more that work just fine that’s not on the list, i.e. Soul Sacrifice/Soul Sacrifice Delta and Freedom Wars!

    Both work perfectly on the Playstation TV despite how baffling that both are first-party/published by Sony and yet there still not “available” sort-of-speak, despite you can just put in the physical copy/download and play just fine.
    For example back when the Playstation TV was being advertised in Japan, Soul Sacrifice Delta was one of the first few demo’s to be compatible with the VITA TV at the time when I was there so they definitely had games like that in mind, but yet still not on the main North American site from what I can tell.

    Eh just a food-for-thought.

  • Wow, this is the best PS sale in ages. Maybe too good…

  • Sony Im begging you. Please release a 128GB card for the PS VITA! Please! 64GB is no longer enough! especially with all these sales!

  • Awesome sales.
    It’s very tempting. Most of my listed games are there, but would be more awesome if Disgaea series gets more love tho.
    But still, thank you ( .^^)/

  • does anyone know if DJMax Portable 3 is PSP exclusive, I can’t find it on mi vita :(

  • Great Sale Guys!!! Massive Improvement from the last 2 weeks. And JRPG’s are my weakness soooo yep! Thanks!

  • I’ve been waiting for a sale like this!!! Thank you Sony!!

  • incredibly awesome sale ^_^ It’s wonderful to have a japanese oriented game sale. So much vita love too! …Now stop starving the vita sony.

  • “All of them seem bad to me.”
    Agreed! The VERY few decent games on this list (like MGS) have been on sale 50 times by now.
    What happened to Japan? This is like an extensive list showing how terrible they are at making games.
    NAtURAL DOCtRINE… One of the worst reviewed games of the last century. Probably not even the worst on this list.

  • Instead of complaining, stfu and just dont buy anything. Sony doesnt owe it to us to have sales on top of sales on top of sales. They have great games on sale n ill be buying a few myself. Good Job Sony!!!

  • @73 I just bought DJ Max P3 for my Vita via web instead of Vita directly.
    After purchase you’ll be able to download it from Vita itself.

  • Hey, please add Portable Ops to the Vita and Vita TV compatibility list, thanks.

  • Great sale. There’s a ton of games, with nice discounts. Personally, I think it’s time to pick up Catherine, really looking forward to play it.

    Great job people. Thanks!

  • No Tales of Xillia 2 discount? That’s the only one left for me to buy :(

  • Awesome stuff, but it’s a real shame Ni No Kuni isn’t on sale. Been wanting to buy the game for a while but it hasn’t been in any of your recent sales.

  • So far am loving theses recent psn sales! But can you guys next time add in more Yakuza titles in your discounts, adding in just 1 yakuza game in a sale about Japanese games seems a bit unfair. But thanks!

  • No Hyperdimension ReBirth1 =(

  • Hey everyone, first time posting on the site, i just had a quick question , i want to buy citizens of earth, but i wanted to know if its cross buy for this sale?, or do i have to buy the ps4 version AND the VITA version?, hope someone can answer

  • Damn!!!! my monies!!!!

  • Hmm need to check if AKIBA’S TRIP is cross buy. Finally getting a PS4 this summer, and I have been trying to snag games on sale to build my library. Wouldn’t mind trying that one if I can get a Vita and PS4 copy in one shot on sale.

  • Oh wow awesome sale. Might get Suikoden II and a few others.

  • Very frustrated. I bought Class of Heroes 2. Of course it isn’t on the Vita store so I downloaded it and when I connect my vita it does not show up as something I can copy from PS3 to Vita.

    I then go on the PSN store on my PC and get an error when I try to download to my PC or add to my vita download queue.

    Any ETA on when this will be resolved so I can play the game I paid for?

  • Not much for PS4…

  • Sale is awesome!! =D My wallet is crying, but I am smiling!! haha!

  • Sweet! Tales of Graces f finally on sale again. Mega Man 9 & 10! Suikoden II for $5?! This is awesome.

  • @60:
    Agreed, a Soul Sacrifice Delta theme would be pretty cool.

    This sale on the Persona 4 Arena stuff tempts me, but I’m going to have to hold back and hope for a Vita release still… Even without Persona Q, all of my friends prefer Persona on the go.

  • Decent sale but really weak compared to last years golden week sale. Seems like most of the Japanese games that went on sale earlier this year like “Happy Birthday PS Vita” didn’t come back for this sale. Those games included Persona, soul sacrifice delta, ragnarok ace, freedom wars, SAO, Ateliers plus, etc. If you had included those as well, this would have been great sale. I was hoping for Oreshika sale specifically for golden week as I held off on buying physical asia (english sub) but now I regret it since its sold out.

  • Happy Showa Day and start of Golden Week to all my Japanese compatriots!

  • Resident Evil HD Remaster PS4 $14.99

    wow !!!!

  • Finally Vita got some good sales after the lackluster Spring sales series.

  • Picked up Senran Kagura Bon Appetit and Suikoden II for my PSTV!

  • Thanks for the sale! Got the resident evil HD remake for my ps4 and last year was when I got Persona 4 golden for my adorable vita. I love japan’s golden week :)
