^Damn it, that makes 15 months of PS+ for $40 now, I don't think I'm going to be able to resist that, even with the uncertainty of what will happen with PS+ for PS4, and if it will still support PS3.

Also, what is the last day to buy PS Plus and get 3 months free? If I did it today, would I get the 3 months plus $10 back?

offer ends 3/4/13

Almost. You're 1 penny short, so you're going to have to buy something else as well.

Get $10 back for every $50 that you spend on PSN in March


You get the $10 (or more) back in early April (preempting those who will inevitably complain when they buy $50 worth of stuff today).

Personally, I'd wait until the store fully updates this evening before buying anything. The store has been inconsistent, at best, and I wouldn't want to be stuck without the credit because I bought something a few hours early...

I was thinking that, too, but there is a huge question of whether buying a year of PS+ actually gets you $10 back. It only costs $49.99, so it seems likely Sony won't actually give you the $10 back. :(

Edit: Beat by crunchewy.

There's no possibly way I could go a whole month without buying at least one game from the PS Store. There's 2 Vita games going on sale this week that I'm going to get. So I'll be set. But yes, it is a good reminder for others that don't frequent the PS Store as much as I do.

I'm not sure how Sony determines which games are released in what region, but I'll bet it has more to do with partnerships with publishers than surveying the wants of each region (though I'm sure there's a bit of that in there).


The point hadn't been that Sony surveys (or even cares), the point was that if every region got the same either Japan or the US would be upset because we have blatantly different gaming tastes as can be seen in pretty much every month's sales charts.

Am I the only one interested in Unit 13 for the sale? Thought demo was pretty tight for dual stick shooter, probably the better one on vita.


It was on sale for a similar price a couple of months ago. I was tempted then and may go ahead and bite now.

I played demos for Little Deviants, Unit 13, Escape Plan, Super Stardust, and (last week) Hustle Kings.

Super Stardust is a definite buy, but i already knew that from the PSN release.
I agree Unit 13 was a superb demo. Did not expect to like it, but did. Now i just have to decide on that price point. But yea, i liked it a lot too.

Little Deviants -- absolutely disappointing.

Escape Plan - curious... but only if the puzzles get harder, and i didn't get a feel for that in the demo. passing.

Hustle Kings - demo didn't give me enough gameplay. i went through the tutorial, then couldn't even play a whole game. seems like a solid pool game if you like those, though. maybe?

Sound Shapes is a solid game for those that don't have it. Beat that and enjoyed it. Also syncs for a double plat ps3/vita.

Any good cheap purchases for those without a Vita to get over $50 with PSN Plus renewal? PSP will work.

No one knows for sure, $50 seems to be the top estimate. I'm hoping it'll be 40.

I'm guessing the winners haven't been announced yet since this thread is so far down on the main page.

Me too. But now I'm going to have to wait until March to buy it to get the PSN savings.

Ok. I guess my thought is that no matter what you release, no matter where you release it, there is going to be people who are happy about receiving that specific game, and people who aren't. I was just trying to express that the EU releases were more patterned after games that I actually want, as an individual.

the get 10 dollars back thing starts today actually when the store updates, so even if it came out today you'd be good.

I bought it when it was on sale for $12.94 in December. I've only played a few missions but it's pretty fun. I like the idea and the controls work real well.

Well that sucks. Do you think it could vary on a game-to-game basis?

Hmm, I'm not sure. If nobody has an answer by the end of the week, feel free to PM me and I think I can test it personally, because I just bought the Japanese version of Ni No Kuni (will have it in-hand on Friday) and so I could try the free DLC on it. This is assuming Ni No Kuni has free DLC in Japan, but the U.S. is getting some, so I'm guessing so.

sony mods have confirmed on the blog that a 49.99 ps+ purchase WILL qualify for the $50/$10 credit.

quoting:

$49.99 will cut it. No worries.

in response to someone asking.

Money in your wallet means nothing until spent for these promos. So your good.

Some people will also ask this "will i get a $10 credit if I put $50 in my wallet"? The answer is NO. You have to buy something with that $50.

Good because I already added funds with PSN cards(I always add them right away, worried about my codes turning up in random code generators) for the sales/releases this week. That would sting if it didn't count.
