PlayStation Store Preview – December 18th, 2012: It’s an Oddworld After All

Even though there aren’t any more significant retail releases left in 2012, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a packed digital release line-up left in store. This week is loaded with PSN releases and demos for both the PS3 and PS Vita. But best of all, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is hitting the PlayStation Vita this week. Don’t forget, you can stock up on the year’s best games in the Holiday Essentials Sale starting this week.
-PSLS (Batman: Arkham Asylum, Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD, PS Vita, PS3, Sound Shapes, The Unfinished Swan, When Vikings Attack)

Another good week. PS Store's been on fire lately.
Godchild1020  +   958d ago
Yes, it has. Just in case anyone wants to take advantage of LBP and Rayman on Tuesday, but are worried about it coming to plus, this is what Morgan Haro had to say about it.

"While some updates to the PS Vita Plus free games is coming shortly; there are some great deals on some PS Vita content with the Holiday Sale like LBP Vita and Rayman Origins. Those games are not slated to be free in Plus for PS Vita in the near future, so it may not be a bad idea to jump on those deals!"

Nothing worse than thinking your getting a great deal on a game and then seeing it free the next week. I'd be surprised if Rayman Origins ever becomes free on the Vita unless a new Rayman game were on the horizon for it. In fact I can't think of a single Ubisoft game that's been released on Plus. And LBP just released not too long ago, and will probably be at least 6+ months before it's considered.

Yes I accidently bought 3 extra copies of LBP ViTA. It was a good deal though. :P

I keep shaking my head in disbelief. How CAN they keep giving us games on PS+ like this? It seems I will be a lifetime member. I would be insane not to be.

I keep selling the games I already have that they add to + so my subscription is already paid for the first year after a month. SMH Sony... You treat us waaaay too good.
dbjj12088  +   958d ago
Yeah, always new stuff to check out. I don't think they've had a slow week all winter.
showtimefolks  +   958d ago
maybe i will pick up resident evil 4 HD(wish it was on disk)

and rayman origins
Bowzabub  +   957d ago
You forgot LBP2 X-Controller DLC.

It's a shame that can't be said for the UK Ps Store thanks to the outrageously incompetent SCEE. We have the "12 days of Christmas" and a "Festive Sale" but that's all, and, the discounts haven't been as good as last year.
dbjj12088  +   958d ago
Stranger's Wrath for me! Love that game. Can't wait to play again on Vita.
Dir_en_grey  +   958d ago
I wish it was cross buy...
I'll mainly play it on Vita but still wish for the PS3 version though.
Obnoxious_Informer  +   958d ago
The Unfinished Swan is probably the best standalone PSN exclusive this year, I highly advise anyone who hasn't checked it out to download the demo, you'll love it.

Journey?
Heisenburger  +   958d ago
Opinion?
doogiebear  +   957d ago
I own journey. And I don't think it's so special. And btw, I actually love artsy, emotional games like Flower...

I'm entitled to my own opinion.

I'm waiting for it to come on sale in 12 deals of Christmas, should be out in the next day or two :-)
wastedcells  +   957d ago
Nice did they confirm that for north America or is it only in Europe.
BitbyDeath  +   957d ago
Probably Europe only as the other Christmas deals have been.

eg. http://blog.eu.playstation....

I think it was said to be deal number 10 and we are already at #9.

Most games have had around 50-60% off so should be pretty cheap.
MariaHelFutura  +   958d ago
Nice. I'm buying Rayman Origins and Resident Evil 4.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   958d ago
Already played Strangers Wrath many years ago. I feel bad for brand loyal fanboys who only own one console.
isarai  +   958d ago
I played it many years ago aswell, still buying it though because it has updated HD visuals and texture work and it's on a handheld which means i can play it anywhere.
violents  +   957d ago
who says people who only own one console are brand loyal fanboys. Perhaps they just arent a spoiled child like you and can't afford multiple systems. And frankly what does this have to do with anything in this comment section?
Pillsbury1  +   957d ago
I want MORE vita games on ps plus!
doogiebear  +   957d ago
Me too. And some psp, ps1, mini's, ps mobile games thrown in TOO to play on my vita (since there's not enough Vita games to be getting 3 of them a month
TheLastGuardian  +   957d ago
LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross Controller Pack also comes out tomorrow. http://forums.n4g.com/tm.as...

Whoa, Rayman Origins is an absolute steal at that price. I highly recommend buying that and both LittleBigPlanet games if you haven't already.

I'm getting Escape Plan, Dyad and maybe Retro/Grade.

Any Free Plus Games this week? Or Are any of the old plus games that left returning?
Master of Unlocking  +   957d ago
I'm disgusted to see the PS2 games they have on the japanese PS Store (Capcom vs SNK 2, Dark Cloud, Bloody Roar 3...) compared to the junk we have on the european store... when we were getting PS2 games, that is.

Oh, and still no Retro City Rampage in Europe, how come I'm not surprised.

SCEE is an absolute disgrace. Even the folks at SCE France could do a better job at running the european branch of Playstation.
Whoever at SCEI in Japan is letting those utterly incompetent twats run the business at SCEE should resign before cutting off his finger and committing seppuku as an apology.
TVippy  +   957d ago
The truth! Although I feel the Japanese main office is equally responsible.
