Everyone keeps mentioning that $10 psn credit email that Sony has sent out recently. I actually got it last night, but I only own a Vita. Is there any way of redeeming that $10 voucher without a PS3?

and gives me hope that some of the big fanboy characters (Crash, Spyro, Cloud/Sephiroth, Lara Croft, etc) might be on the way... You'd have thought they'd want to get this DLC out roughly the same week as Dead Space 3 though.


unless something changes, i heard Crash and Spyro were off the table. Activision said no, and they own the rights. I think the same thing happened with Croft.

You can do it on the live screen of the vita for the PS store. There's a code redemption on the top of the page after you click on the icon.

Sorry, I asked my question incorrectly. I know what to do once I have the code, but the email said I had to check my PSN messages on a PS3 to get the code. Is there any other way to get to that message?

Best I can tell, Escape Plan is a 900 MB file with a 1.5 GB patch to install. That's insane. Don't they realize that space on the memory card is at a premium?

Ah okay. And there's an app for messages. Have you checked in there? Sorry I misunderstood your question the first time around.

Yes, there's a message icon on your Vita's home screen. Select that and you can retrieve any messages they sent you

Its just a regular 12 character redemption code, should work on Vita or even the web store. PS3 automatically redeems it for you when you click on it though.

My guess is they were likely thinking more about the size of game assets required to make the game they wanted to make at the quality they wanted to make it moreso than how much space you have left on your card.

The 32g may be a bit pricey, but it's certainly a very nice to have. I sold a couple backlog games to pay for it, and i'm glad i did.

Call me oblivious, but I just noticed that the Vita Anniversary Sale will feature different deals each week until mid-march. I just wanted to mention it in case others missed it also. I'll probably spend $50 for the $10 bonus, but now I feel like I can wait for some (hopefully) more attractive offers. I'm hoping to see some sales on stuff that hasn't been on sale before like Oddworld or Rocketbirds.

No idea re: Croft. I had heard something along those lines for Crash and Spyro with the basis being that they want Crash in the next Smash Bros (a reasonable goal) and didn't want to pollute the Skylanders cash cow but allowing anything from the series elsewhere. Who knows what ends up happening with the game out and with it being of (relatively) high quality - maybe it moves the needle some for Activision, maybe not.

A Resident Evil character might make sense (esp w/ the upcoming release of Revelations on PS3)...

Wow, I didn't realize we had to go there to check to see if we have any messages. I always assumed something would pop-up if I had one. I'll have to check to see if I have any when I get home from work. I've never hit the icon as far as I recall. Thanks for the info.

The notification in the upper right hand corner usually does mention when you have a new message.

Well, unless I'm missing something, I wasn't able to check my messages from my vita, and I wasn't aware I received the $10 voucher until I logged into my ps3.

Yeah, and I opened that app several times looking for the message, lol. Looking for all of my messages, really, and none were to be found. Only thing that shows up in my inbox on the vita are msgs I've received while actually on it. We are referring to the "group messaging" app, right? Is it my settings?

It used to be that you could add everything to cart and then checkout without having to download. Now you can only click "Download" and you'll have to cancel it if you don't want to download it right then. Quite a pain, and if there are any upcoming free avatars or themes, it'll be painful grabbing them.

And in the comments it alludes to more God of War sales coming next week... I would be a happy camper if Sony US released, say, God of War Collection or Saga as a short time PS Plus game to build buzz for Ascension. I've played games regularly for nearly 25 years and that whole series is a strange gap in my play history...

Torn on how I want to grab PSASBR, it takes up a lotta space digitally but it's a good deal, Would like both the PS3 and Vita versions but not for friggin' 40 bucks, they should have that additionally discounted for plus!

Really excited to see what else we get on sale for Vita, hope we can get a Silent Hill and MGSHD discount.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

I said the same thing about comparing the blog comments a few days ago and a few people disagreed with me. Oh well...

REALLY dumb question, but want to make sure. If I pick up the 12+3 PS+ deal (to double dip on the spend $50 get $10 back) it will just add time to my current PS+ time right?

I have a few bucks sitting around, and with Sony giving me $10 last week and offering back another $10 +3 extra months I'm looking to extend.

Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Very cool of them I think - I'm planning on skipping Ascension (I think I'm a bit violenced out and it sounds like this one will be hyper violent), but for someone like me maybe revisiting the first one would have changed my mind. Although I think I have GoW Saga sitting around somewhere so clearly I'm not that motivated to have my mind changed.

Edit: I hope they do the same thing for US if only to see if there's a hot hell of belligerent comments on our blog somehow.

Well, that's sort of the point though : If the game's assets are all contained within a 900 MB game file, why do we have a patch to download that's over 150% as large a file to add some music and a few extra levels? Same thing with PSASBR Vita, which required an 800 MB patch to add two DLC character and one more battle arena. I think it's safe to say that SCEA isn't being very economical with however they're updating their games and handling their DLC.
