Dang I bought these already who knows how long ago. I am not upset they are free, just stinks that the new free games won't be anything new to me.

Awesome deal to those who didn't have em though.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

They must not have gotten your email about putting Walking Dead on sale! Try resending it.

Thanks OP. But there is a thread that covers everything PS+ and PSN.


Are we going to make a separate thread for every PS+ week now?


I hate to be that guy, but this shouldn't be its own thread.


While I agree it serves a purpose to keep a lot of stuff within the designated threads. Sometimes it is nice to see a deal that someone would have otherwise missed or overlooked. This is especially the case if one doesn’t subscribe or religiously follow the fifteen + main threads. Also many of the threads like the "Steam" and "Amazon" threads move at such a pace it can be hard to keep up, let alone go back and read 10 pages.
Thanks for the heads up OP.

Edit: Well looks like the thread got merged as I was typing my reply.

That bad? I'm guessing not many people can vouch for it.

Whoops. Didn't see this post. I did try the demo a few months ago, and I enjoyed it, but I dunno...


I almost missed the Katamari sale myself (it seems from the OP that it is ending with the upcoming update) - glad I checked the thread today. That's the problem I have with these mega-threads - it is very easy to miss something like this especially when it is only 1 week. I almost missed the free PS+ vita game as well. I am buying Katamari now. It was a must buy for me on the Vita (once I got one) and the best I've seen is $20 for the regular version. This is enough of a discount, and the game is small enough (600+ MB), that it is worth getting digitally. Hopefully it will fit on what's left of my 8GB card...

D'oh! Not enough room - will have to delete some of that free Vita stuff I just got (Chronovolt, Frobisher, etc).

I'm doubtful this will happen. =( SFxMM is little more than a random fan game (albeit a well made one) simply being promoted by Capcom. I don't think they have access to any sort of developer kit for porting their title to anything other than PC. (While the 360 would still be an easy port to make, it'd probably require some fees on Capcom's part and is thus less likely to happen)



Exactly. The Capcom Unity guys said so themselves the day they streamed the game (basically not worth it to release it on consoles when you can get it for free on PC).

There's a reason that godawful piece of shit is free.



I wouldn't call it shit but it certainly is not up to par.

While I agree with your point, I disagree with posting the plus stuff outside of this thread. (and most PSN deals) Unlike say Amazon, Bestbuy, and several others where it's easy to miss a deal / they're shot lived, Plus updates weekly (usually quite late even...) and can easily be viewed by opening the store and selecting "new this week" and Playstation Plus. If you happen to miss a deal by not viewing this thread, the playstation blog, seeing one of the various new sites report it or opening the store to see for yourself... I like to think the separate post most likely won't help and you paid the price for not finding time for it.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more

This thread is always up to date and well-organized, in addition to being able to check the PS Blog. If people are looking for PSN deals this is where they should look, I agree there don't need to be separate threads for PSN deals and definitely NOT for PS+ freebies.

I get the point, but that is the justification that makes it okay to repost everything all of the time because somebody, somewhere will have missed all previous threads and will finally catch the latest one, which reaches a point where those sorts of people will just have to miss the deal because they're not vigilant enough about keeping up with the deals. It's not hard to keep up with the forum since a full day's set of new threads stay within the first two or three pages of this forum, which takes a minute to skim through and be caught up.

I can understand the point for something like the Steam thread where it doesn't seem like the OP contains all of the deals and instead just links to the store. That sort of thread is all about reading the latest posts to see what's new and that is an issue that can be worthy of new threads for new deals.

This thread, however, has all of the relevant deal information that anybody needs to catch up with what's on sale in the OP, so the only way you can miss it is to not check this thread once a week. Everything that's new for the week has a green asterisk next to it to make it easy to see what's new and I mark as many things as I can with the red asterisk to denote that it'll expire with the next update, which is about as much as I can do outside of personal PMs letting you know what's new. I don't see how it's the fault of this thread if somebody can't manage to do that. I'm not trying to sound mean or anything like that, but that's my view of the situation.

Fucking Playstation Blog and their weekly updates. I bought Mega Man 9 & 10 before the PS Plus lineup came out, and whoop-dee-fucking-doo that's the free game this week. If they just said it would be free at the beginning of January, this wouldn't have happened. I put a call in for a refund and my request was sent to billing for processing, so I'll know by the end of the week whether I'll get it or not. I guess I'll also know whether or not I'll be signing up for PS Plus again.

I do have to say i think you do make very valid points in regard to the PS+ freebies, also I not only completly agree but appreciate the OP in this particular thread is always (to my knowledge) updated. Many other threads given there nature or the espediency of the deals do not always have updated OP's and thus generate the aforementioned necessity.

I mainly wrote the other post in response to the many who will flame or criticize the poster and thus contribute anything that is benefical in helping newer poster's learn what and how to post. This kind of beahavior only discourges new contributors which is bad for everyone. After writing all this I would like to take the moment to say thanks for all the hard work everyone puts into these main threads, in regards the posting of deals and updating of OP's

P.s Sorry for being Off-Topic so much.

If they actually approved a refund for you (that wasn't a one-time act of good-faith) then I think Sony would be setting a dangerous precedent.

They said they will probably refund in light of the recent sale, whatever that means. I thought it sounded like an excuse to avoid a precedent, but appease me at the same time. Even if they don't refund me, it's not like I wasn't prepared to pay what I paid.

I agree with the poster above, though, I will get to keep them post-Plus, which is good, because these games are excellent.

They received Hell Yeah! and Knytt Underground free day 1 among others and just got Guardians of Middle Earth for January and it's less than a month old.

No they don't. It's around $10 more, but about every 3 months or so they get offered a 1-year subscription for 25% off. So for any savvy shopper, it's actually cheaper than US PS+. In fact, they have that deal going on right now. :roll:

Lets not forget that they also were given Littlebigplanet for free to try plus (way at the start) and had a few other promos like get X bonus time with Y purchase. Not saying US doesn't do the same thing, but it can be had for less if you're savvy.
