Thanks to everyone for the answers about the PSASBR. I'm glad I got a PSN $50 card instead of the actual disc game since I think this would be a better quick load digital type game.

Good stuff. I actually do like that EU list better. I just Googled how to create an EU PSN account, but can I use a PS+ redemption code that I buy in the US (i.e. Gamestop or Amazon) to subscribe to the EU PS+?


I'm not positive but I don't believe you can. I think EU and US each have their own codes. Also that blog doesn't mention the latest games. US got Bioshock 2, Super Street Fighter IV: AE, and Rochard I think it was. EU got Batman Arkham City, Limbo, and Vanquish. EU wins again imo. That blog list is also missing Crysis 2 which was given away free for PS+ (EU only, although it was a couple months ago and is no longer free).

Either way get whatever you're getting soon since the month is almost up.

Don't know the answer to your question, but just wanted to make sure you knew that Best Buy will have PS All Stars on sale for $39.99 next week. My recommendation is to get a physical copy you could potentially sell later. I was really excited for this game from the beginning, but was pretty disappointed when I finally got it. The fact that super moves are the only way to score points/win made me feel like everything I was doing besides super moves were inconsequential.



Yeah my brother in law picked up a copy today at GS and I feel exactly the same way after playing it. I actually told him after a few hours of playing that there should be a life bar of some sort because certain characters have pretty weak supers. He got a gutted copy so maybe that would make it easier to return if he doesn't like it all that much, blessing in disguise?

Has Strangers Wrath for PS3 ever been on sale other than when it was released? Wondering if picking up the Vita version now would be a waste of funds. It doesn't seem like JAW participates much in PSN sales though.

It definitely went on sale once, though it might have only been like 20% off. But it was definitely on some sort of discount when I bought it. Let me do some research.

EDIT: SEN isn't letting me sign in. I guess I won't be able to figure out when I purchased it. I'm almost positive it was 20%-30% for PS+ subscribers some time in early 2012.

If anyone is on the fence about Journey, I can't recommend it enough. Just bought it with Plus and I finally understand what the fuss is about. Well worth the ~$7.

Thanks.

For all the horror stories about buying games that later become free, this is a good example of the opposite. I jumped on a 30% discount on the game in January, and since then the game hasn't gone free (in the US) or even received another discount.

Does anyone think that the Walking Dead episodes will be 50% off anytime soon? I have the first two episodes from PS+ but they are half off on XBLA right now and I'm considering grabbing them.

I'm sure there will be a sale on it at some point but if you haven't played it at all I'd highly recommend it for Vita. I'm having a ton of fun with it and it's easily one of the best Vita games at any price.

The Vita version is supposed to go on sale (25% off) early next year.

I think that comment was referring to buying both the PS3 and Vita versions. If you double dipped you'd get 25% off the total. Not sure if that sale is still in effect or not.

I can't seem to get the 25% off deal to work at all. Not a big deal personally because I won't be double dipping until it's at least 50% off.

How does the game control on Vita? Particularly the FPS sections? Sad but true, I've seen some mentions that this is probably the best FPS game on Vita at the moment.

That's because the deal is only available for European users. As for the FPS controls, they're fine. I don't know about BEST fps on the vita since i blazed through resistance and shut those memories away, but it's a pretty good game.

I signed up for the Sony Playstation credit card and with the $50 sony voucher after first purchase, I signed up for a year of PS+. Then, I used the card for everything until I got $5000 points and cashed those in for another $50 card for another year of PS+. This is my plan to continue with PS+, and so far I am set for the next 2-1/2 years with the extra month here and there from game purchases and trial codes.

Keep looking at that Two Worlds II Velvet GOTY edition for $5. On Amazon it's $19.99 for the disc version with the velvet box, pirate head and map:
http://www.amazon.co..._pr_product_top

You can get the original Collectors Edition from Amazon as well for the 360 for $29.99:
http://www.amazon.co...s=two worlds ii

Looks like a lot of nice stuff, but the reviews are very mixed on the game. Perhaps the $5 version is the way to go and if I like it, I could always order the CE or Velvet Ed for the swag and sell off the game.

Only thing that's holding me back is all the mixed reviews on the game itself. Any thoughts on this game?

Play the free 1 hour trial that you get on PS+ first to see if you like it. I found something that was a deal breaker for me.

Yeah, just add the cards to your PSN wallet, than buy your PS+ subscription through the PS Store on your PS3.

easy solution -- don't pay attention to what EU gets. you'll be happy enough with a US account.
