Gonna have to bite on the R&C collection since it doesn't have a physical release.

So is it different from this?

It's pretty easy to find p4g for sub 20, BUT it's a good deal either way.

Wait, what? I hope it's not terrible like the Jak and Daxter collection. That ran like ass.

He means for Vita as the physical release of the Vita version was European only.

You can import a physical copy from Europ since for some reason they got one and we didn't

Persona 4 Golden for $12 is an absolute steal. I bought it at $20 and I have absolutely no regrets. The most fun I've had so far on my Vita.

Considering the PS3 and Vita are different systems, yes

Not all of us follow the Vita and you never mentioned which version you were talking about... my bad.

Jumping on Tactics Ogre and Legend of Heroes. Those have been pretty stubborn sales wise and I've always wanted to check them out.

Wow really nice sale!

Anyone know if the digital version of R&C collection is cross buy? If I buy the vita version will I get the PS3 version too or do I have to choose between the two?

Definitely getting P4G and a few others after work today.

Would you guys reccomend final fantasy 9 to a relative newbie to PS1 FF games? 

 

I loved FFX and FFIV, couldn't get into 7 for some reason

9 is my favorite in the series.  Its got a great story and is not as "serious" as some of the other FF games which also means a lot less wankery in the story, great cast of characters to boot.  The only FF I couldn't really get into was 8 despite starting it 3 separate times I always quit.

Only the God of War Collection is Cross Buy. The other collections require you to figure out which version you'd prefer to play it on.

even though i got rid of my PS3 for a PS4 i'll jump on the dragon age origins for $5. i hope i can play it for free with the PSNow, meaning i'll NEVER pay for an overpriced crap cloud service as long as i can continue playing the games i purchased for the past few years. Sony said years ago, whatever we purchase we keep forever, so if they strip that "forever" in lieu of the PSNow then SO LONG older games, and SO LONG purchasing overpriced digital games.

Damnit, I just bought the R&C collection, always happens.

 

Anyways, it is quite buggy with framerate drops when there's a lot of action happening, and the sound/music does get cut off/distorted quite often. Strafing is all done with the back touchpad which was frustrating to control.

 

It's better than the Jak and Daxter port, but it's frustrating.

You better abort that plan right now because PS Now is only a rental/subscription service. They're not going to offer purchasing options nor let you play games you purchased for an actual PS3.

I want Persona for my new Vita but I do not have PS+ at the moment.  The thought of paying an extra $3 is bothering me for some reason.  Anyone know where I can get a 7 day trial or something similar?



#1100 Savo22

Wow, this sale is actually pretty good. I'll probably pick up Danganronpa for $20, since that's the cheapest I've seen it.

 

I wish Persona 3 Portable would go back down to $5 like it did once; I'd pick it up at that price.

The Dead Kings DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity is free, for those that want free things for some future circumstance in which they might own this game.

Has anyone tried the PSP GTAs on Vita? Does it control closer to the console versions because of the second analog?

Disgaea 4 is tempting and I am also tempted to pick up Final Fantasy IV, VII, and IX for that price. They will of course sit on my Vita and wait to be played as I have so many games in my backlog that it's absurd.

Decent sale. More than I was expecting, but a little less than I hoped.

It's the same as the PSP versions, though you might be able to tweak it a little bit to remap whatever the camera controls are to the right stick if they're not too complicated.

Come Hell or high water, I'm getting R&C on the Vita.

 

Really bummed LBP PSP isn't on sale. that would have been amazing. Guess I continue to wait.

On the PSP it was L+AnalogStick to move the camera around.   I don't own a Vita (just a PSP-GO) so I don't now about remapping controls and if it's possible.

 

.........

 

 

The sale seems decent enough but I'm pretty sure I already own much of what I'd want from the sale.  I could see myself buying FF VII, VIII & IX for the sake of buying them... but I know I'm not likely to ever put the time into actually playing them.

Definitely nabbing Tactics Ogre for my PSTV at that price. Tempted about P4G, but I'd rather buy a physical copy and save memory card space.

 

Would anyone recommend Ys: The Oath in Felghana  at $7.50? I've never played any of the Ys games. How's this one?

Also how is Persona 3 Portable compared to P3 FES (PS2)? I played the PS2 version for 5 hours before my data corrupted on me.

Best game in the whole sale, and I've never even beaten it. 

 

I guess having Lumines for 10 bucks isn't bad but the PS4 and Vita side are pretty well trod material sales wise. Anyone have opinions on Need for Speed Rivals for 12 bucks, Ys Oath of Felghana, or Danganronpa for 20 considering it may be a while before it goes to plus?

NFS Rivals is great.  I bought day 1, sold, rebought on sale, now am selling it to buy digital. 

 

Ys -- i'm buying it based on other people's recs.

 

Danganronpa -- it's a dark visual novel murder mystery with courtroom minigames.   I disliked it, but if you like visual novels it's extremely highly recommended by others.

 

Lumines should be a insta-buy for anyone.

 

Trails in the Sky and Tactics Ogre are also worth your money.

 

 

Ah, well it's there now regardless.

 

Oh yeah.  He was just jumping to conclusions again.  The game was never delisted due to 'poor sales', etc.   I don't even know what he's talking about, I don't think any game has ever been delisted due to poor sales.   It's a digital storefront, that doesn't even make sense.
