The store update is pretty week, but the release of Ni No Kuni on PSN and the 13 for 13 sale makes up for it.

IAMERROR1279d ago

Some of these deals are quite good!

Yea, I never would have bought LBPKarting. I was even considering it with the $20 sale this week at Best Buy but I decided against it. I'm not much of a LBP fan, and I prefer realistic karting (GT5), so it's not worth $20 to me. But for $10, that's cheap enough for the racing fan in me to make an impulse buy on a racing game I may not like.....something I NEVER do anyway. I never gamble on racing games. But $10 for a Play Create Share racing game is worth the gamble. I won't be lacking for tracks, that's for sure......I hope people have created some good real life track recreations.

For $3.50 The Unfinished Swan is amazing. Another game I was sketchy on gambling on for $15, so I was waiting for a discount to like $10.....I wasn't expecting $3.50 lol

I love this sale this week, because I wasn't excited for any of this weeks new content.

@LarryL: Not sure if LBP Karting will be your cup of tea or not, but FWIW, I have had a blast playing it with my daughter. It was worth full price for us. It's a great game for $10.

I will probably pick up Psychonauts I already have a copy on another platform but at less than a cup of coffee at Starbuck's, it's awesome to add it to my Ps3 soft collection.

guitarded771279d ago (Edited 1279d ago )

LBP Karting for $10 is the right price for me.

I have just about everything else, but there are some great deals there.

@ LAZLO

As someone who has lost his Skyrim saves half way through the game TWICE, and Borderlands 2 saves, Peace Walker saves etc, all mid game due to HDD failure, then YLOD. I can say that the cloud saves alone are worth the price. Nevermind the dozens of free games

So what you're saying is the update isn't weak?

Godchild10201278d ago (Edited 1278d ago )

Exactly. And I Spelled Weak wrong, I need some sleep or maybe some Ni No Kuni in my life.

IAmLee1279d ago

Needed a new game to carry me over til' GoW.
LBP shall do the trick :D

dboyman1278d ago (Edited 1278d ago )

....and some Ni No Kuni would also do :)

JaredH1278d ago

The sales are as good as steam sales when you have plus. That's pretty good.

Bladesfist1278d ago

They are good but not as good, steam has way more titles in it sales and up to 90% off. It also has the huge collections of games for £30 and all of the indie games not to mention the games they gave away on the summer sales. I know I will probably get down voted for this but it is the truth. This sale pales in comparison to a steam sale.

Slapshot821278d ago

@Godchild1020 Sorry mate, I meant to "Agree" with your comment, but I accidentally hit the "Disagree" button.

I've wanted to grab both Unfinished Swan and NiGHTS into dreams..., but I've not had the time to play them yet. I actually enjoyed the LBP Karting beta, but not enough to warrant a retail purchase - for $10, I'm game though!

Well said Razmossis,

My Original 60GB died on me 2 summers ago, and I would have lost all my saves if it werent for Plus and the cloud saving.

That or flash drives are the only way to protect yourself, because if you try to put your HDD in a defferent PS3 it forces you to reformat it, I feel bad for people who don't have plus and this reality hit them.

dboyman1278d ago

For some saves, they are protected/locked, so cannot copy to flash drive, so your only options is either system backup, or upload to PS Plus cloud saving...

These sales best come to the EU (not holding my breath though)

Tei7771279d ago

Its because we get much better games on the instant game collection, its only right NA get better discounts

iamnsuperman1279d ago (Edited 1279d ago )

True but dam I would blow a load of money on those discounts. So many games I would play. Cheap

BISHOP-BRASIL1278d ago

One and a half year of PS Store officially available in Brazil and we still don't have any kind of access to PS Plus or Home, both of which had been promised at E3 before the store were available here. Also our sotore don't have any video or music content beyond gaming related, most prices are stupidly higher than both America/Europe prices as well as brazillian Xbox Live prices, also no extended warrant or season deals... Not to mention that a lot of content simply never shows up here.

Count yourselves luck!

guitarded771278d ago

Actually, you folks in the EU get price gouged on everything, so decent titles on the instant game collection is the least they can do. You guys deserve a good sale.

BitbyDeath1278d ago

Was hoping to get Unfinished Swan discounted at the 12 days of Xmas specials but instead they bundled it with Journey :-(

THC CELL1278d ago

Superman I benefit from making a USA account and USA psn cards seriously it's not hard man.

KING851279d ago

The update isn't that awful. All users get a substantial discount, but PS+ users get that added bonus.

E2S1279d ago

I wonder if you need a PS move to play house of the dead.

hawkeyejonjon1279d ago

No. You can use a controller too if you wanted.

Monolith1279d ago

House of the dead overkill is awesome. My brother and I play that game all the time when were drinking. That game is hilarious. Had my mom play it and she had a blast with the move.

E2S1278d ago

Yeah Its fun. I played the wii version but the graphics are horrendous.

DivineAssault 1279d ago

The joy.. PS Plus is awesome
