I can't decide about Ridge Racer 7 3D after playing the demo. I know it's old and simple, but the graphics are good, the 3D is nice, and drifting properly does take some skill. Googling it was difficult to find out if there are more race tracks to buy as DLC or they're all included. I didn't see any in the PSN Store. I looked online and only saw 2 players, so I guess the online community is all but dead. I think the sale price of $9.99 ends tomorrow night, but I've been burned almost every time I pay $9.99 or more for something l(like Hydrophobia Prophecy) as those usually drop to $2-$5 soon after I buy. That experience has made me very reluctant to buy anything over $5.

Do people think Ridge Racer 7 3D is likely to have bigger price drops in the near future (next several months) if I wait or is it unlikely to drop massively in price like Hydrophobia Prophecy did?

I don't know how the PS3 handles credit card payments (whether it puts the money into your wallet first) but I'm pretty sure the $10 back for spending $50 requires the money to be spent from your wallet to qualify. So you might want to put more money into your wallet and spend it to reach $50 from your wallet before the expiration date in April.

Sony said themselves on their blog that $49.99 PS+ subs alone would qualify. I haven't seen Sony say that $49.99 that is not PS+ sub would qualify as well. So maybe maybe not for that.


Doh, you're probably right it says from your wallet so I guess only the $23.xx I spent directly from my wallet will count towards the $50 total. Lame. I should have paid attention to that extra deal before jumping in and buying.

Purchased another year of PS+ and Vagrant Story. With that free $10 PSN code they gave me recently and the 3 months bonus, this turned out awesome.

No, he's not. Unless they changed things with the new store, credit card amounts go to your wallet first and then it all comes out of the wallet.

Is it crysis 1? For #1 it might be


While it could quite literally be any shooter out there (As I've already mentioned, needing to state it wasn't inversion after saying critically acclaimed doesn't inspire confidence.), I doubt it's Crysis. Now it could be Crysis 2, since EU got that and 3 just came out, but I don't recall a lot of acclaim for the series. Mostly just people stunned by how good it looked or complainers pointing out how the game sucked at details.


No, he's not. Unless they changed things with the new store, credit card amounts go to your wallet first and then it all comes out of the wallet.


Even if they changed it (not that I can see why), Sony would get WAY too many complaints if they didn't honor it, that you shouldn't worry.

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


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

http://www.cheapassg...&postcount=7455

Game 1: "A big, critically acclaimed shooter. Turned the world on its head in terms of what to expect from a shooter." Maybe Spec Ops: The Line?


It's not going to be BioShock, as it's going to be free with BioShock Infinite, so that would be a boneheaded move.


You read it. You can't unread it.

Yup, I bought the PSN+ subscription through my vita. I didn't have any money in my Wallet. It automatically added the funds to my wallet first then spent the money in the wallet to give me the subscription. And I was able to check on my subscription, and it doesn't expire until June of 2014. So I did get the extra 3 months.

Unless the current promo is totally different than all the preceding ones, the +3 months only kicks in if you spend 49.99 directly out of your PSN wallet. Redeeming prepaid 1-yr cards (like the ones from that glorious Target error) shouldn't entitle you to anything additional, so no need to feel down Affa. ;)

EDIT: Huh, well I'll be. Checked the PS Blog and HTZ was right; pre-paid cards do work for this promo. I believe that's the first time they've opened it up that way. Sorry for extending false peace of mind Affa!


Redeeming the PS+ pre-paid cards like the ones from Target, do give you the extra 3 months.


Indeed - when I redeemed my last card it showed the new expiration date immediately and it was 15 months after my old one. It might have even shown it when I was redeeming (before I hit submit).

----------

As for the freebie this week, I have no plans for buying Bioshock Infinite so I wouldn't mind the first one free on PS+ since it would go along with the second one we got earlier. But I see why they wouldn't want to do that. But I haven't played any of them yet and having it on PS+ would probably prompt me to start the series (and then maybe get the new one). I'm pretty sure I have the first one on disc laying around somewhere anyway (from some long ago Blockbuster sale ;)).

If it is a CoD game, then, well, meh - not interested.

For those with a JPN account, there'll be a demo of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 hitting March 7th which includes 2-player co-op. Even cooler, if you grab it between March 7th & 20th, you get a free XMB theme.

Considering the US is getting the game as well, I wonder if they'll do this for the US.

That is correct.

I really hope not, I have beaten already both and I was not really that impressed with the story mode. IMHO they can't hold a candle to the Bioshock or Call of Duty series story mode.

March 12 most likely.


Why do you think the MLB12 Vita sale may end on March 12? If they are doing "new deals each week" wouldn't it end on 3/5 when the next set of deals come out? I guess we may know more details later today, but if someone is on the fence, they may want to decide soon just in case...

Yes to both. There'll be a different set of Vita games on sale starting tomorrow when the store updates.

Maybe the shooter is Deux Ex? I mean, it's not really a classical "shooter" but just a guess. Anyway, we should know in a few hours.

As for the Vita sales, I bought the games I wanted (Super Stardust and Hustle Kings) last night, just in case they do disappear tomorrow.

Fits the pattern of old EU+ rehashes, but I doubt it. In that vein, if they wanted to blow us away, maybe Dishonored, but that's too big a stretch, I'm sure. Looking forward to either the standard weekly disappointment or the rare wow.
