Take a look at the game selection for this year's PSN Summer Sale and information about other discounts starting next week.
Infamous Renegade Ops Will buy
Shadow of the Colossus.... A Must buy
It says first PSN summer sale, but I could have sworn they did a summer sale before? Anywho, pretty much every game on the list is a great buy especially at 30% or 50% off. If you missed out on the following games I recommend you buy them now, you won't be disappointed. Pac Man DX CE, NBA Jam, House of the Dead 3 (if you like it), Crysis, Closure, Shadow of the Colossus HD, Infamous: Festival of Blood, Killzone 3 multiplayer (the whole game should be cheap by now), Renegade Ops, Catherine ($20), and Trine 2 ($7.49) Droplitz ($5), Rock of Ages ($5), pretty much bowling meets Monkey Ball. You roll the boulder down a huge hill filled with obstacles and things to crush, while maintaing momentum to knock down gates to progress to the next level. It's more fun than it sounds, but not for everyone. Magic Orbs
I think they meant it as the first sale for the summer, not the first sale ever...
Yeah, but if you have plus and get the 50% discount, will you still "own" the game if you stopped getting plus? I'm serious here. I don't actually know.
I was wondering the same thing.
Yes. If you BUY a game, even at discount, you keep it. If it was FREE, then no.....
Anything you pay for you keep. Anything that's 100% free from Plus is taken away. Except avatars and little stuff like that I think.
Yeah if you pay anything for it, it's yours permanently. Even at a discount. Anyone know what's gonna happen with all the stuff we buy on PSN/XBLA when the PS4/720 come out by the way? Never thought of it before.
Yes the games u PAY for (even if on discount) you keep forever. I know because before I got the year subscription, I had the 3 month one, and when it expired, I got to keep the ones I paid money towards. The ones that were entirely "free" are the ones that stop working. U will know because it doesnt make u agree to the PS plus terms and conditions when u pay any amount of cash on the psn store. Only the free games ask u to agree with each download. Also, when I check the expiration date of the free games, it shows when I need to renew membership. However when I check date of a game I PAID for (even of it was at a huge discount due to PS+), it shows NO expiration date nor a PS plus symbol when checking information/properties because once you pay even one penny for a game, u own it. It is just an awesome deal. Also u can keep all PS minis and avatars and themes even if subscription expires. But ps3 and ps1 (and ps2 if they ever give those away) games will lock up and stop working.
i dont think you can keep the minis, cuz if i remember right, i couldnt play them when my sub ended.
they worked way too hard on the playstation network and home for it all not to transfer over to ps4. i donno about xbox tho.
In short . If you pay one red cent for it, its yours for life (Whether on plus or not). PSN Plus is great.
Yes. Discounted games are yours to keep, freebies are the ones you don't get to keep if your subscription ends.
you keep it.
Ok, thanks everyone.
I wish north America could get Darkstalkers as a discount. Europe got it free last month and I wish we could have gotten it (even of at discount). Also, does anyone know what the 3 "FREE" games of July will be yet?
Dont worry to much about it cuz it'll probably eventually come out in the US plus
Shadow of the Colossus... I've never played the game, but people on here seem to go bat shit mental for it, so that will be the one I purchase!
If you don't have Shadow of the Colossus yet, I'm willing to forgive you if you buy it as part of this sale.
I'm glad I'll have your forgiveness, I'll be getting crysis and shadow of the colossus for the price of one of them!
will do, thanks for being so reasonable Nug...
Had SotC day one, on PS2. Way ahead of ya buddy.
honestly, if you don't have shadow of the colossus OR a ps3, it would be more than worth it to go buy a ps2 and a copy of sotc which would all be around 60$ which is the price of a new game nowadays anyway, and after that you would have a ps2 that you could play jak, ratchet and clank, okami, re4, ico, sly, god of war, and other games for ridiculously low prices on anyways, so sounds like a great deal to me
I bought the HD-collection but havent really got around to play it yet, so am I half-forgiven? :D I like to support games with an actual depth :P
with the discount how much will it cost? I am definitely picking that up.
Nice to see sony spread the love, I mostly play on pc, but it's nice to see this kind of thing on consoles.
Yep, I'm loving this ongoing trend of them chasing after Steams model.
Is it actually 50 percent off? Last time it said 50 percent off, and some of the prices weren't....then again it probably said "up to".... I might buy Festival of Blood, but other than that I either already scored the game due to an earlier sale, or dont want it.
If you want a further discount you should PM Cgoodno(Admin), he can get you some codes.
I own quite a few of those and got some from psn plus for free but def will buy Catherine :)
I've kinda been itching to buy Festival of Blood, so this is the best time for me to get it.
It's actually pretty good, and it's the kind of DLC I like. It gives you more inFamous, but at the same time offers something very different. You'll want vampire bat flight, to become part of inFamous 3, and Vampire vision is kind of cool, but the DLC is only 4 hours long. But in the end it's worth it.
Festival is worth it. Quite fun and a lot of new stuff but set in infamous world. Bat flying is the coolest thing I have ever seen in regards to fast travel.
