Thank you Sony
Conzul  +   974d ago
They are doing this because they are going to announce Ps4 and it won't have any BC. So you'll all buy a bunch of Ps3 stuff before the big announce (6/4/2012)

Flame on bitches.

How bout no, Scott.
Conzul  +   974d ago
No really think about it.

The image says the Offer is good through 6/4. That's pretty much when E3 starts. They want a buttload of purchases before some big announce happens.
slaton24  +   974d ago
6/4 is a week most sales last one week dream on about announcement of ps4 maybe next year
MAJ0R  +   974d ago
Sure it's unlikely that the PS4 will be announced, but you never know. This also could be because of Steam and Amazon sales, and Sony are attempting to compete.
ShinMaster  +   973d ago
Some people always find ways to spin good things into bad.
*sigh* it's a sale. 30/%50 off = Good.

Wow great titles... here I go Red Dead Redemption... what are the titles you are going to buy?

@MAJ0R: they don't really attempt to compete with prices like those.
rmedtx  +   973d ago
Sony supported the PS2 for years after the release of the PS3. I think they are still releasing games for it. I'm sure they will support it for a few more years.
fermcr  +   973d ago
Can't we already find these game prices on ebay ? And after playing the game we can resell since it's on a bluray.

Who cares?
All these games are old and I am sick of them trying to rehash old games at retarded prices. Repacking old games at prices that we could easily buy new arcade games for.

*puts face in hands in sorrow*

some people :(

orange-skittle  +   972d ago
some people...WHAT?
What are you...sheep? You keep buying games that you already bought just because they package it differently and include every in nice tight bundle? I don't know where you're from, but in my neighborhood we call that a sucka. Sounds like you're a sucka
bwazy  +   970d ago
I didn't buy many of these games, sorry the 7 billion people in the world don't have the gaming collection as you.

I'd keep going, but its way too clear that you're trolling on a redundant level.

20 bucks for JC2 and ALL its DLC? SOLD!

Terrible for pc but great for ps3
mushroomwig  +   974d ago
They're definitely starting to push PlayStation Plus a little more now, hopefully at E3 we'll see some more features added to the service.

yeah, im glad they're doing this
gatormatt80  +   974d ago
Yup. I'm a PS+ subscriber and IMO it's totally worth it.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   974d ago
Man, I can't wait to PS+ to be available in my region. They said it would be available here down the road. It was almost an year ago, when PSN here finally received a PS Store. Unfortunately they never had a release date setted, I just hope they get it going this year.
TopDudeMan  +   974d ago
Yeah 50% off is awesome. I may take them up on it if I can find some space on my PS3... :(

edit: tenton- thanks for enlightening me, that idea never occurred to me.

buy a 500gb hd
GraveLord  +   974d ago
Sounds easy enough to buy a larger HDD but how will he transfer all his saves and stuff? The DLC and install data? all that will have to be done again and its a pain.
mushroomwig  +   974d ago

I'm not 100% sure but I think you can just back up your existing HHD using an external drive and then just restore it onto the new HHD.
TopDudeMan  +   974d ago
Mushroom, they let you transfer your stuff, but only if you have 2 ps3s. And you can't back up games.
homer  +   974d ago
You can use an external drive. I did it, but it was a pain in the butt. I had some corrupted file, and I couldn't figure out which one it was so I ended up deleting all my games and installs. It then worked but I had a lot of redownloading to do. Still better than having to pick and choose, so I would suggest you go ahead and do it.

If you have ps+ you can use the cloud storage facility for game saves dude.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   974d ago
agree with tentons

its a great investment... swapped my old 80gb with a 500
DigitalRaptor  +   974d ago
@ GraveLord

yeah, it's a pain. Like fei-hung mentioned, you can use PS+ cloud storage to back up game saves and your media can easily be backed up to an external HDD, but game data and DLC etc needs to be re-downloaded/re-installed.

However, when you have your 500GB drive installed, that's it all done, and no need to worry about space for a long long time. That little inconvenience goes a long way and has been completely worth it since I upgraded almost 3 years ago.

darkride66  +   974d ago
Huh. I didn't know so many people were having issues. Mine was painless as it could be. Plug in usb drive. Couple of clicks to back up. Take out the one screw holding in the old drive and pop the new one in. Click "restore backup" and done. All my content, all my game saves, all my installed games. I thought it couldn't be easier.

I thought Infamous was excellent and but I had so many other games to play when the second one came out. Hard to pass it up now for $20. Same storey with LA Noire. I wanted to play it, passed it over for some other titles but now for $20 I think I'll give it a go.
cjflora  +   974d ago
The PS3 lets you do a full backup which backs up everything. All of it. Back it up, pop in the new HDD and restore. Easy as that.
god_o_war  +   973d ago
its probs resistance 3...
Knushwood Butt  +   973d ago
I wish they would push it more in Japan: for the most part, all we get is free PS1 games that nobody has ever heard of, or discounts on ancient PS3 games that nobody plays any more.

Want a discount on Calling All Cars?? Well now is your time to sign up for the JPN PS+ !!!!!

To be fair, I mainly signed up for the cloud saves, but still..
fabod86  +   974d ago
hell yeah!
showtimefolks  +   974d ago
i don't have ps-plus but damn man over the last few months games have been discounted so much and ps-plus get's extra $$$$ off so can't complain

about to sign up for ps-plus

the only game i don't have from the list is just cause 2 and i did get it at launch for full 60 and believe it or not was bored so maybe i will pass on this sale

they give you a island to play but in my opinion the content to fill the land isn't there
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   974d ago
I wouldn't say the contents of the island are the biggest problem... I mean, it's organized as a small insular country. There's those small vilages, 2 or 3 really populous city and tons of country side and natural environments.

The major problem is that, aside from the military bases, there's nothing happening. It don't feel believable, mainly because it's all dead on those long natural fields you need to cross... I mean, there's a ton of vegetation, but that's about it.

Add some animals to make those forest alive, better NPCs in towns, people doing something other than just walk around... Make this world breath a little. It would be a muhc better game.

On the bright side, there's tons of funny easter eggs to find in those islands. I was just parachuting my way into the forest when I found that huge hot air balloon that, to much my surprise, was fully functional! Than I just started to looking for more stuff on the web and there's like 2 dozens of really cool easter eggs there. I started exploring right away!
showtimefolks  +   974d ago
you know as much as people love JC2 and say you can do anything i rather have all those abilities yet have a smaller yet more believable world with more to do and a actual story
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   974d ago
I agree with you there. I love that big world, but as I said, it felt dead to me... If they can't make it believable in such a huge scale, they should just try it smaller, see how it goes.
NastyLeftHook0  +   974d ago
la noir complete edition downloadable for $19.99 im sold.
stage88  +   974d ago
$19.59 actually but that's even better ;)
stage88  +   974d ago
And to go with this I have just renewed my PS+ AWW YEAH :)

Good job Sony.
MacUser1986  +   974d ago
Infamous 2 for me!
Ducky  +   974d ago
... if only the DLC was discounted too.

In some cases such as RDR, it's just better to buy the entire digital game instead of the DLC-Pack itself.
abzdine  +   974d ago
I bought 2 DLCs it's WipEout Fury and LBP water pack ! I'm not too much into DLCs.
CaptainMarvelQ8  +   974d ago
i hope us with eu accounts dont get the short end of the stick

as always
HOSe  +   974d ago
thats a good deal on black ops.. everything else is meh.
jdktech2010  +   974d ago
Well it is a good deal on blackops as it's basically the cost of the DLC by itself. However, there are some other good deals on there so I'm hoping that's what the WTF was for
shammgod  +   974d ago
I hope you're joking. Please tell me you're joking

MK (2011) for $24.49 with all of it's DLC!!? That's one hell of a good deal! It's basically the Komplete Edition at $20 less and all digital. SOLD!
Nodoze  +   974d ago
These are some good deals. Hopefully this is a start of a new offering that continues.
crowsticky1234  +   974d ago
It's only for one week. It would be so cool if this happens once in every single month but with different games.
ilikeyou  +   974d ago
we need more of these deals:>)
Buuhan1  +   974d ago
There's a few good deals here, but I think quite a few are still over priced. Too bad the best deals I already own or finished.
chiefdog11  +   974d ago
Been thinking about picking up Mafia 2 lately, at this price with all dlc there's no reason not to now.

The framerate for that game sucks and it also has horrible screen tearing.
chiefdog11  +   974d ago
Really? Thanks for the heads-up. I'll check a bit more closely into it then before I decide.
PFirefly  +   974d ago
WTF are you smoking? The frame rate never chugged once during either of my playthroughs, and the only time screen tearing is noticable is if your anal mcloony.

A little tearing is expected in a sandbox, and I never noticed it at all since I was actually trying to enjoy the game rather than look for a way to bash it.
Godchild1020  +   974d ago
I had the game day one and had little to no issues. I'm buying it again, just because I sold my copy and to play all the DLC.
rawd  +   973d ago
Completed the game and all the DLC. No screen tearing
Emilio_Estevez  +   974d ago
Those some good deals
Silly gameAr  +   974d ago
Now I can finally get Just Cause 2, plus the dlc for just 15 bucks. I hope they keep this up.

If you don't have PS+ and want to buy Motorstorm, you might as well sign up for PS+ and then buy lol
taco_tom237  +   974d ago
im getting rdr and infamous 2
remanutd55  +   974d ago
Motorstorm Apocalypse should be priced at $39.99 and $29.99 for playstation plus subscribers
bahabeast  +   974d ago
la noire and mafia 2 mabe needs to be played by me about now :) gata renew my plus though :(
momthemeatloaf  +   974d ago

UConcord11  +   974d ago
Pains me to see PS+ disregarding the vita. but next month post E3 I think we'll get some stuff
KrimsonKody  +   974d ago
I think what we are experiencing here is the inevitable "movement".
You see, Sony is highly promoting DLC, streamed games online, etc., not to mention their recent partnership with OnLive. I think that Sony, along with other companies, want to rid of physical retail material. It's "future-proof" to stream, so to speak, it saves them $ on production, & it gives them the upper hand on situations like piracy, used game sales.

Sony is simply trying to "get us comfortable" with streaming. I think when the PS4 is announced, the shocker is going to be that it is not BC & almost all games will be steamed. It's an highly risky move, giving that not all of the world has internet. Gamers in those areas who currently enjoy PS3s without internet would not have the option of upgrading.
Persistantthug  +   973d ago
@KrimsonKody.....There will always be physical retail versions for AAA budget games.
Retail demands it and so do consumers.

As long as consoles have to sold in brick stores, then retail will demand software for themselves to sell.

That's how the console business works.
KontryBoy706  +   974d ago
PS+ is the STEAM of the PS3. I'm liking this Sony!
coojo  +   973d ago
how if steam is free ps+ is overpriced
KontryBoy706  +   973d ago
I said OF THE PS3. I didn't say STEAM of the PC on the PS3. Get your facts straight. Also it's not overpriced. You must have never had it or a PS3.
WitWolfy  +   973d ago
WTF?!?!?! I've received more then 60 free games since joining PSN+ so please enlighten me how that doesnt justify the admission fee, really im curious...
trenso1  +   973d ago
over priced? the first day i got the 3 month subscription it already paid for it self. downloaded 3 free games what would have cost me around $50 if i didnt have it.
