The lack of bitching on the blog and here is refreshing! Everyone's so happy!

Inexplicably, after the sale tomorrow, I'll have a fairly complete digital collection on the vita. Well played, Sony.

I have Joe Danger 1 & 2 on Xbox, but the others I don't have, so yeah! I wish I had a Vita... some day.


Doesn't Joe Danger 2 have a bunch of extra content on PS3 (compared to Xbox)? If so, that might be worth something to you.

I thought the PS3 could not read 1 TB HDD. Time to find one at a good price, well 2 one for my PC too.


I think the issue is finding one that will physically fit into the slot.

The one I bought that did fit was this one:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822152291

I bought when it was on sale for $69.99 and it came with an enclosure. It was a bitch to download, install, freezing, download, install for about a week or so, but it was worth it. I am using about 600GB right now.

Did anyone pickup unit 13? I think my limited game time will be filled with mlb vita (not ps3, takes too much time to play a game there) and I've hesitated.


I have the game on cartridge. I have to say it's a pretty great game. There isn't really a story but I've really enjoyed it. The missions are objectives based, and it's a fun 3rd person shooter. For $13 it's worth it.

Whoa, that's a generous discount on dokuro. Cheaper than any of us assumed. Wonder why they did it that way. Now, I'll most likely pick it up.


Yeah, not sure what's up with that. I was thinking maybe it was a typo, but if not than that's great for those that didn't buy it at 50% off a couple months ago. It's a great puzzle game, one of my favorite Vita games so far.

Great month, the only one I have is Joe Danger 2, which I got for free on XBLA so I'll gladly take it for free again.

Also, bravo to Frisky for nailing Spec Ops, as well as Disgaea and The Cave. That's impressive.

It makes me wonder what the reaction would have been if these games were released on a week to week basis...my guess is that Disgaea and Spec Ops would have received quite a bit of acclaim, The Cave would have been mixed (some grateful that it's such a recent release, others unwilling to accept any sort of "indie drivel") and Joe Danger 2 and Tekken 6 would have been shit on ("We only get one of the same games from EU, and it's the worst one!" and "Europe gets the very recent DOA5 and all we get is a fuckin' 3-year old PSP game!!!")

Geez. I'm finally going to enter the "I'm not buying anything ever again" Sony club.

I just bought Disgaea 3, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Street Fighter x Tekken, and Blaz Blue for the Vita last week at full price. I mean... I'm grateful for PS+, but fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Man as a PS3 & Vita owner PS Plus is insane! I'm hoping this carries over to the PS4, and if the next xbox doesn't follow suit I might just stick with PS next gen. Anyway, Patchwork Heroes is a favorite game of mine...it's just plain fun. It actually has a fun story as well. Great great game. Glad to have it digitally. Looking forward to Joe Danger and The Cave as well.

Trying to decide what to grab from the sale as well. I think I might bite on Street Fighter X Tekken now. Maybe Sumioni and Dokuro as well. As usual too many games and not enough time to play them :)

100% agreed. I started with a 360 this generation, but at this point I don't see any way I would buy an Xbox720 over the PS4, Sony has won my allegiances with PS+.

Wow, PSN is killing it this month.

Super stoked about Joe Danger 2 since I loved the first one. Also, getting The Cave is pretty sweet. Not sure about getting Disgaea 3 since I have the PS3 copy still unplayed.

As for the sale, I'm definitely picking up Orgarhythm and Sumioni. Might pick up Knytt Underground and Pure Chess. Also, free Patapon? Sweeet, I've had the second one for awhile and have been meaning to buy the first one. Wild Arms was one of the first PS1 classics I ever bought, great game.

And EVERYONE should get Dokuro.

^Did you end up platting Dokuro? Sorry, I could just look up on your gamercard, but I'm lazy.

Unrelated, I was under the assumption that Spec Ops was an FPS, but I guess it's a third-person shooter. That makes me WAY more interested in it now! :)

He did, though I have no clue why he didn't get into Ragnarok Odyssey.

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.

Spec ops was defintiely different from the typical shooter. Shit got weird, but in a good way.

Joe Danger and The Cave will go nicely in the backlog of free/heavily discounted plus games.

Good thing I added another year along witht he free 3 months. It will take me the 2 years I now have left on my sub just to get through the games I already have. Not even counting what we will get in the future.

Tyler, I was just messing with you to see how long it would take you to see my sig.  Dont get your panties in a wad.

Free copy of the Cave is a slap in the face for some but a welcome slap. Loved the demo and will enjoy this game.


how in the hell is a free game a slap in the face to anyone? if you already bought it, someone wanted it at an earlier date at the price they paid. by that logic, every sale in the world is a slap in the face to someone.

also - when they release old games on ps+, people complain they're old. when they release new games on ps+, people complain they just bought them. they can't win.
