I'm still waiting for Cladun 2 and ZHP to go on sale.

I might grab Disgaea so I can play it on my Vita if I want.


I'm hoping Cladun 1 goes on sale as well. I think it's only $10 right now so I'd definitely pick it up at $5.

What prices? ZHP is at least on sale at GameStop for a PSN code from the last major NISA PSP sale.

What are you looking for? Search for whatever game your looking for and go to the Add-Ons for it's DLC. For example if you want Tekken DLC, search the letters TEK, then go to Tekken Tag Tournament 2, then click "Add-Ons"

Excuse my ignorance, but what is this Resident evil 5 gold debacle?


The day RE5 Gold went free to PS+ members, the store didn't update for everyone. BUT it was still listed under the PS+ free games section, so people added it to their cart anyway and bought it full price. Thinking it was free, and causing Sony to issue tons of refunds.

The new PSN store sucks. I waited until Wednesday and it still won't load properly. Takes 4min to load the app, then right away, or soon after a very minimal amount of browsing (I can't click stuff I want) it says "Connection timed out" and only 1 button appears "Exit" and then the app closes. I can't add anything to cart and check out before it crashes.

The OP is updated for those that worry about it. I'm trying a new system where I spoiler the descriptions for bundles to lessen the amount of real estate it takes up. I'm also considering adding a new colored asterisk for Vita/PS3 Cross Buy stuff so I don't have to write it up every time.

Picked up the Jak & Daxter Collection and I was surprised to see that the original is less than 1 GB while the others are just over 3 GB, which is impressive for a game as technically impressive as it was at the time.

It was in their Prinny Bomb e-mail, Cladunx2 and Z.H.P were specifically mentioned as games that were going be on sale on PSN. No prices were mentioned, only a "up to 50% off."

This is CAG.


I knew someone would say that.

I do understand, but there's a point after which things like this become ridiculous.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

OP looks nice, spoiler tags definitely clean it up. Asterisk system for cross-buy sounds like a good idea, too. Thanks as usual for being so organized, I literally only look at CAG for PSN info/updates/sales/etc b/c of it.

Well if it's $1 or $1.50 off from a retail game for $60 or even $40, then I'd say that's ridiculous. But from a $10 game, I'd say it's a noticeable difference.

Yup, and it was $1.50 off of a $5 sale price, so that's a 30% difference.

Plus (and maybe I'm being petty here) I get a tiny bit frustrated when a retailer announces a lower price than what they're actually offering. It almost makes me not want to buy it at all. I understand everyone makes mistakes, but the only way for me to tell Sony that I'm not happy with their mistake is to speak with my wallet and not buy it.

Maybe I'm alone in feeling like that...I don't know. I'll probably end up buying Prinny instead so that really doesn't show them...

I still say if you're interested in a game enough, you'll buy it for the sale price even if it's $1.50 more than you expected. If another $1 is enough to deter you, then you shouldn't even think about buying it.

I also disagree with your logic, $1.50 is $1.50 whether it's off of $20 or $5. If it bothers you that much then I'm not sure what you were even interested for in the first place.

Sometimes people make mistakes, I'm not sure why it's such a big deal. Shouldn't we just be glad that PSN discounts stuff pretty often and offers deep discounts fairly often as well? I mean, they're the only player in the console market that does it to this extent. To say that you feel like not supporting a sale in NOT buying because of the mistake is a bit silly... We want to speak with our wallets to show that we don't appreciate their sales?

It's not a big deal to me, and I'm not even interested in the discussed game. But if you go buy a big mac for $3.50 today and the next day you buy it, it's $5. You'd at least ask the employee right? That's my logic. And I think only one person even asks about that. No one complained or said it was a big deal.

Thanks a ton! Super excited for Cladun 2, got my AC3 vita from amazon and almost bought that the day the vita arrived (got Tactics Ogre instead). Glad I waited if this thing goes on sale! :D

It's currently $19.99 for d/l from gamestop. Should go on sale next week on the PSN store. It's about the only thing listed on that "Prinny Bomb" list that hasn't gone on sale yet.

I've only heard they say Uncharted, Gravity and WipEout are going to stick around. The others might, but hard to say. While it means virtually nothing, EU is getting different games, so at the least people will complain and we might see the side titles change. (EU swapped a PSN title for a Retail [MK], so don't assume the worst.)

While I could get into a long explanation of why I disagree with you, I will simply say this much. People typically spend more because it's cheap (why many CAGs have HUGE backlogs) and these people probably wouldn't have bought it for full price, so the sale didn't REALLY lose a lot (if any) sales. Finally, Sony has gotten complaints about inaccurate information, which is why they're not too keen on giving a monthly plus update post anymore. Several times things would change, which would result in people getting angry. If ANYTHING, this should result in Sony doing more to prevent errors, than us writing them off for being Human.

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


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Having finally managed to platinum the free Motorstorm RC I got on Vita, I figured I'd just go buy the PS3 one to get the double plat (I suffered for it, I deserve it!). On the store, the PS3 listing does not specify cross buy, but the Vita one does. Just to be safe I bought the Vita one, but would it have made a difference? I know my free Vita one no longer shows as purchased, though I didn't check my transaction history.

Just curious.

Not really. The original paid PS3 version that launched alongside the free Vita version did not support Cross Buy, but they put up new versions of both when the free Vita version was taken down a few months ago that does support it. They said at launch that the PS3 version would entitle you to the regular Vita version when that does launch, but that was of course a lie. The free Vita version is still in your download history.

Yes, 2. It shows 19.99 when I try to check out. I have no problem with the other free games. Guess I need to contact cs later.
