Also, looks like next week should bring a new Vita title to PS+. If I'm not mistaken, the PS blog said that we'd get something this month.


You are not mistaken. I, too, think we'll be getting a Vita game next week.

However, there are still actually going to be two more December updates, so it is possible that we don't get a free Vita game until the 31st.

I'm still gonna wait on LBP and Rayman Origins for Vita. I'm not dying to have either and I think one or both will be PS+ eventually.

And therein lies an unattended consequence of IGC. There's too much uncertainty. This especially hurts smaller games. I wish they'd institute some guidelines. Maybe even provide alternatives (ex. chooose game a or b). Provide a timeline -- even a month is better than the weekly thing. I thought I enjoyed the element of weekly surprise, but ehhh....

Just do what I do: don't buy a game unless it's cheap enough that you don't care if it goes free.

I'll also be pickin up Hell Yeah, I avoided it the last time cause it came with the DLC and the DLC seems pretty useless.

Yes / No. Sure it sucks getting a dupe (I personally have it happen 80% of the time), but if you really want the game, then you'll buy it. It really just limits impulse purchases or those who sorta want something, but don't really care. Also in their defense, Sony loves to give away LBP....

  • EU Plus subscriber bonus. (1)
  • Welcome Back program (1)
  • Subway Promotion (2)
  • Original House Party Sony event. (2)
  • Second House Party Sony Event (yes they gave it twice)
  • and Instant Game Collection. (2)

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

Don't expect LittleBigPlanet Vita to ever be free. And I doubt many more retail games will be for the Vita IGC. Uncharted, Wipeout and Gravity Rush are probably the best games we'll ever see become free. Most PS+ games are free to either sell sequels, DLC or boost online activity.

Come on, really? One of the dumbest things I've ever read. Maybe some of the best for the next couple months, but Vita and Plus are both going to be around a while. So I can promise you that we'll see better games.

Also, "best" and "better" are both a matter of opinion. I happen to think Uncharted: GA and Gravity Rush are two of the worst the Vita has to offer. Other people think the opposite. To me, Wipeout is the true gem of the Vita IGC right now.

From ps+ blog for those worrying lbp or Rayman may go free for vita:

"+ Morgan Haro on December 17th, 2012 at 11:23 am said:
While some updates to the PS Vita Plus free games is coming shortly; there are some great deals on some PS Vita content with the Holiday Sale like LBP Vita and Rayman Origins. Those games are not slated to be free in Plus for PS Vita in the near future, so it may not be a bad idea to jump on those deals!"


I'm glad Sony is starting to realize and address the problem they have with giving away free games. This comment will probably get me to purchase Rayman. I hope they come up with a good long-term solution since PS Plus has probably deterred me from purchasing some games. That being said, those games were dirt cheap, so Sony and the developer/publisher probably didn't lose too much by me not buying it.

Sony really needs to just give a credit each month to spend on a specific list of games and that credit just expires at the end of the month, etc. They should do that or just give an A/B choice like someone else mentioned.

More information on the Holiday Essentials sale:

Here at PlayStation, we’re gearing up for the holiday season. In the spirit of giving, we’re giving you some great discounts on more than 40 titles over the next three weeks. Each week will highlight some of the best PS3, PS Vita and PSN games available in the PlayStation Store. Featuring trippy music/racing hybrid Dyad, PS Vita side-scrolling puzzler Escape Plan, sure-to-become-classics like LittleBigPlanet 2 and Rayman Origins, plus plenty more, we’ve got you covered. Starting today, you can save 30% — or up to 50% for PlayStation Plus members — on a variety of hot games, listed below. If the lineup below isn’t enough, we’ll be refreshing this list with a whole new batch next week (12/24) and the following week (12/31), so stay tuned.

All of these titles will be on sale for one week only — December 18th to December 24th — so head into the PlayStation Store before these discounts melt away. And don’t forget to check back on PSN next week (12/24) and the following week (12/31) for more great discounts on other Holiday Essentials games.


Definitely in for Rayman Vita and Escape Plan. I also heartily endorse Retro/Grade for those with guitar controllers.

I'd imagine the Heritage Collection includes some of those recent old Sega games that they've been releasing lately.

LBP vita doesn't have a mass amount of DLC? The main reason lbp2 is still free on ps3 is because its known, sells plus and DLC. Think lbp vita can do the same.


LBP2 had been out a year and a half before it went free. LBP Vita has only been out a few months.

Doesn't mean it won't be free in a year. *Ever* is a really long time for anyone to say anything with certainty. The real problem with giving away too many retail games right now is that there are only like 12 of them. No point in selling your system at a loss if you're not going to sell any games either.

Maybe even provide alternatives (ex. chooose game a or b). Provide a timeline -- even a month is better than the weekly thing. I thought I enjoyed the element of weekly surprise, but ehhh....


The funny thing about the whole weekly/monthly thing was that everyone on the PS Blog bitched that they hated the monthly rollouts because all the major games were released at the beginning of the month, and the end of the month was boring. So they switched to the weekly format, and now people are bitching about that.

Just look at EU this month, yeah they got Batman/Vanquish/Limbo on the 3rd. But for the rest of the month they're getting 1 Vita game and 2 niche PSN games that won't appeal to the masses. If that happened here, the blog would be aflame with comments about how lame the tail end of December is.

I personally like the weekly format (and look forward to every Monday morning for the new PS+ update), but if they switch back to monthly that is fine too, as long as they don't keep running into problems where they advertise a deal they're not able to provide later in the month. Weekly updates prevent this from happening most of the time (when it does happen, it's usually due to a typo)

Just do what I do: don't buy a game unless it's cheap enough that you don't care if it goes free.

I'll also be pickin up Hell Yeah, I avoided it the last time cause it came with the DLC and the DLC seems pretty useless.


This is pretty good advice. Also, if you don't think you're gonna play the game fairly soon, don't buy it. This is my quandary with Escape Plan. I'm not sure if I'll shoot it to the top of my Vita backlog. If I do play it right away, I won't regret paying $7.50 for it even when it does eventually go free (assuming it does). If I don't play it right away, I'll certainly regret it if it goes free while it's still in my backlog.

Not the best sale of the year but I hope to see in the next weeks Okami HD for $5 and Trine for $2.50
It is laughable to see Catherine on sale for plus members at $20, didn't the PS Store had it on sale for all at that same price some weeks ago? Also, the disc version has been at $20 on amazon for several weeks now.


Okami HD for $5? I think you're gonna be waiting for a while.

Sony really needs to just give a credit each month to spend on a specific list of games and that credit just expires at the end of the month, etc. They should do that or just give an A/B choice like someone else mentioned.


There's no way they could just give a PSN credit each month and expect to see any sort of profit from PS+. Unless the credit was about $4.00 each month.

wow, another sega sale. hellz yeah has been on sale every month since release, i almost bit on that dlc bundle for 10.xx, but ill pick up the vanilla for 5.xx. thanx.

I've had the last 4 PS+ games already, last new one for me was Dungeon Defenders. But I'm still a huge supporter of PS+ too. Also, ditto to your last sentence. HAHA

I've noticed that a long time ago and posted that in here, the problems are sales discounted on DLC is not so much happenning, because they don't tend to release discount on same day when the game is released free.

Last week on EU they did that with Batman they should do that more often to boost sales for PS+ subscribers.

I really hate that argument... since I have played 32 Vita games and there are probably 60 at the moment total. While I am not saying they should, I could easily see it being something like...

Month 1 = Reality Fighter
Month 2 = Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus (since 2 is out)
Month 3 = Resistance Burning Skies
Month 4 = New Little King Story
Month 5 = Modnation Racers
Month 6 = Dokuro
Month 7 = Littlebigplanet Vita (since it's E3)
Month 8 = Little Deviants
etc

The Vita has plenty of titles they could give and no one would be hyped. Here is just a small idea, with plenty of titles I doubt as selling. Again, don't think we should get a retail game a month, though they could easily do it without much of a negative impact.

What's the deal with SCEA and SEGA? Way too many SEGA sales in the past few weeks, it needs to stop.

Already own the stuff for the general PSN sale, no need for digital copies that may or may not be supported come PS4 because Sony hates backwards compatability enough to ditch the Cell processor.

It doesn't have anything to do with SCEA. Sega just loves to put their games on sale, though they always put games on sale during the holiday break.
