@Havok83 From now until 12/30 according to the ps blog.

On a related note: Does anyone know if this game is 'cross play' compatible? I.E. is Retro Rampage one of those games where your PS3 save file automatically gets sent to your Vita and back to your PS3 so your progress is the same on both platforms??

This is actually a free game to keep once your PS+ runs out, right?

These are the games that I am currently playing:

 

:wiiu: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

:ds: Kingdom Hearts RE:coded

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

PS+ is actually stopping me from buying games. I don't know if this is Sony's intent, but I held off on RCR and now I'm glad I did, and I will continue to hold off on future games.

Same here. This is why I have not bought Journey yet even thought its going on sale for the 2nd time.

Yeah, it is. It's not automatic though. You have to go into the game, and select cross-save. Then it'll instantly upload to the cloud.

Prob not. I seriously dont understand.what's so hard for people to understand about plus. If its FREE, u own it until your plus membership runs out, and it comes back if you renew it. If you pay for anything that is a plus discount, its yours, forever, no matter what.

It probably works out for them. I never purchased many PSN games anyway. Now they get a guaranteed $50 from me every year, that they never would have gotten without PS+. The only content I purchase is DLC and the sales have made that more likely. Im sure this is likely the case with alot of others as well

I understand that, however the way it is listed here is a little misleading.

Retro City Rampage (Sale: $10.49, PS Plus: Free, Regular: $14.99)
Retro City Rampage PS Vita (Sale: $10.49, PS Plus: Free, Regular: $14.99)

It looked like it was some sort of holiday bonus that it is yours to keep forever or something... was just wondering... relax.

I see what you refer to, but it will not be a keep forever game. The way to confirm is it when you go to purchase it in store, you will be given a "warning" that the game is available only during your PS+ subscription.

I feel the same way as you. Ever since I got the AC:L Vita bundle from Amazon on BF, I've bought zero games.

Any idea when the store updates this week and when this goes free? Right now the game is removed from the PS vita store.


On my vita there are some games that are under "your instant game collection" yet aren't free or even discounted.

Escape plan
Little big planet vita
Rayman origins

Another reason to be happy that I'm a PS+ member. Just waiting till Journey and/or Unfinished Swan are part of the instant game collection.

I bought this game at full price and it was worth every penny.

Btw, it appears to be free now, at least on the Vita storefront.

I'm going through the same thing. I rarely buy anything on PSN now because I know eventually I'll get it for free/discounted. I appreciate Sony for doing it, but it seems like they're screwing themselves out of my money.

Does downloading one version (vita) activate the other, or will I have to turn on my PS3 to get that version as well?

Also, anybody that is still playing GT5 there is the free downloadable Corvette C7, very cool.

It is up on PS3 as well. Buying it on the Vita/PS3 does activate the purchase for the other console as well.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

great game if you were born in the 80s, lot of nods to NES games.
