Where do you have to preorder to get the Soul Sacrifice extras?

I wish Jet Set Radio wasn't two different games. I was so close to pulling the trigger when I realized that the PS3 version and Vita version aren't the typical buy 1 get both type of promotion.

I'm really enjoying Gravity Rush. I played the demo and thought "what is everyone so hyped about, this game is kinda meh". That demo didn't do it justice imo.

I also really like Retro City Rampage...such a throwback to the old times and filled w/ so many references to 80s gaming and movies.




I agree. I have JSR on the vita. Why would I pay for it on the PS3? And with separate trophy lists, there's no way in hell I'm doing that tutorial twice.

Newegg never gets bonuses in my experience.

The last new game I got from Newegg, P4G, came with the pre-order skin. So I beg to differ.

Where do you have to preorder to get the Soul Sacrifice extras?

Reading the comments on the PS Blog, Aram Jabbari said that there are no plans for retailer-exclusive promotions. So while there haven't been any specifics yet, it's safe to say that if you have it pre-ordered at any major retailer you should be good.

I wish Jet Set Radio wasn't two different games. I was so close to pulling the trigger when I realized that the PS3 version and Vita version aren't the typical buy 1 get both type of promotion.

This was done because both versions were released at two different times and the Vita has touch controls unique to that version. JSR Vita was also free the day it came out due to PS+.

my mistake, guess i confused it with microsoft

still i don't understand why somebody would refuse to buy a game on sale for 3 bucks just because they originally charge 15?

always amazed at how petty some people can be

So with these constant free vita games, I take it sony is telling the public DON'T BUY VITA GAMES, we'll just give them to you free a couple months after release.

Maybe I'm missing the joke here, but the public at large has told Sony that they don't want to buy Vita games, so I don't see what the problem is. At least developers/publishers know that they can get a guaranteed amount of downloads with PS+ than they might on their own, which would be a good way of pushing for more games on Vita.

you said you can't justify giving a game money when they charge 15 bucks, you do realize that it's sony that gives a game it's price, not the developers of the game right?

The publisher/developer decides on the price. That's why GTA San Andreas is $15 instead of the typical $10 for a PS2 Classic since they wanted to match the price they charge for that game elsewhere. That's also why there are a good amount of games at weird prices outside of the $5/$10/$15 tiers.

If you pay $50 for 12 months of PS+ then you don't belong on this site.

So long, guys. I'm out of here.

You obviously have no idea what CAG is about.

Lower starting point ($9.99 like the others) would mean a lower discounted price. Paying the same price for a game of equal quality that is shorter is perhaps justified, but paying more for a game that is shorter can cause one to hesitate. I would imagine he would of pulled the trigger if they were all $2.50. I can understand that way of thinking, Jak/Daxter and Ratchet/Clank I consider fairly interchangeable, yet one is $3.75 and the other is $2.00.

I'm definitely more excited for Soul Sacrifice (a seemingly motivated Inafune is as good as it gets), but this is fantastic news as well. Seems like a fantastic fit for the Vita.

LOL. So true.

With the recent digital releases of The House of the Dead: Overkill, Vanquish and now Bayonetta, I hope Resonance of Fate, Binary Domain and the Yakuza titles will get a digital release as well.

Was sure it was coming to the US, but still neat to hear confirmation that Muramasa is being localized. Never got around to finishing the Wii version, so looking forward to playing this (especially if they make it so jumping is one of the main buttons, rather than pressing up on the analog stick).

The free games idea is actually pretty genius. If I were Sony, I would ONLY focus on giving free games that have extensive DLC (which is mostly what they have done). They are in effect offering a free game, through a paid service, to people who were unlikely to play or buy the game to begin with. Now that they have the full game and are likely to play it, if they like it, they are that much more likely to buy the DLC for it.

The PS4 might have a good start if they maintain PS+ in its current form and continue with Steam-like sales. It's only a matter of time until all the kids who grew up on 360 actually have jobs and can't rely on their parents credit cards to pay for XBL.

Now back to me being giddy about Soul Sacrifice. Soul Sacrifice is really the first Vita game in which I plan on playing heavily online. Now I only have to convince my only friend with a Vita to get it so we can play together.

Much much better. If you enjoyed Odin Sphere, you will love the shit out of Muramasa.

My only wish for sony is to get more third parties to release their Jrpgs overseas. It's good that we get to play the old ones from PS1 but I played the crap out of them when I was a kid.

Not to start a debate or anything on Live vs PS+, but sheesh, just look at some of the sales from Live this week:
$5 Earthworm Jim, $8 each Mega Man 9 and 10, $7.50 NBA Jam, $5 Shank 2, $5 Warp, $20 Tiger Woods 13.

Sometimes the grass isn't always greener.

For this week I'm just hoping that fishing game for the Vita has a demo.

Hmmm... I enjoyed the mod parts of Modnation but felt the racing was weak. Does LBPK suffer from crazy rubberbanding? Cause that's my biggest pet-peeve in Kart racers.

There is the same rubberbanding as in most karting games.

So do I. Just means I'll be waiting a bit longer to pick it up.

I love how the first response to 'should I get this game' is always 'try the demo' but everyone that talks about demos says they don't do the game justice...

I managed to get a trade for ninja gaiden sigma plus (the physical version), so now I guess I don't care about the free one anymore. I'll always go a step further for physical copies over digital.
