Oddworld: SW HD Vita will be 25% off on PS+, Free PS Vita Game Likely Coming on Tuesday

Though it managed to finish in 2nd place during the December 2012 PSN sales charts, there’s likely quite a few of you who haven’t bought Just Add Water’s PlayStation Vita port of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD. Luckily, PlayStation Plus members will be getting a 25% discount very soon.

Very tempting to get Oddworld at 25% off!

I don't want to buy it again. Already have it on ps3. I wish they'd just let us download to Vita for free.

wait you have to buy it again just to play it on the vita?
TrendyGamers  +   921d ago
Yeah, it isn't a Cross Buy title.
MasterCornholio  +   921d ago
It should have been a cross buy title. Hopefully with New and Tasty it will be a cross buy title.

I think it will eventually be free for PS+ members.
I have this game on PS3, but bought it for Vita (just loved the game).

@ trendygamers
-_- thats a low blow right there
TrendyGamers  +   921d ago
Yeah, it's not awesome.

what will the free game be? I'm gonna guess MK or Marvel vs Capcom.

I'm also guessing MK as well(which i already own), but knowing the US ps+ itll most likely be some random psn title.

We need a good free Vita game, there hasn't been any good additions since ps+ on Vita started.

To be fair Sony went all out for the vita PS+ launch.
FragGen  +   921d ago

And, also to be even more fair, the Vita library being much smaller than the PS3's probably makes it much more difficult to add/select more AAA titles. Sony wouldn't want to give away a substantial proportion of them or some owners might just hold off on buying new software releases hoping for free versions or deep discounts which could create a bad dynamic in the already tenuous Vita software market...

Personally, I think it'd be cool if they hit an old premium PSP title or two like GoW, MGS:PW or GTA (all of which I own on UMD but not downloads). PSP games play well on Vita.

Or one of the top tier PS1 classics like Castlevania or FF7 would be cool.

Then the old school PSP holdout folks could share some collateral PS+ love, too as an added bonus.

That's true, the launch was awesome and completely worth getting a Vita for. Still though we're due for a new worthwile addition for Vita's ps+.

anything will be better than that foosball bs from yesterday.
porkChop  +   921d ago
Yeah seriously. That was an extremely niche game that most people won't want. As fun as it may be to some people, I don't like Foosball, and neither do most people. Seems like the PS Plus staff is just scraping the bottom of the barrel with the games they're giving us. The launch lineup for Vita was all kinds of awesome, and it's really just gone downhill since then.

There are a lot of launch games that are past the point of profit/sales that they could have given us, but instead they give us crap. They don't have to give us new games, just give us decent games that most users would at least want to try. Foosball was a waste, and don't get me started on Chronovolt, jesus that game is fucking horrible.
8bitHero  +   920d ago
i thought the sports game from the other week was bad but my jaw literally dropped when i saw foosbal, i thought it was some kind of joke. I didnt even know their was a game about foosball-.-

I don't know why this article says a free game is "likely" on Tuesday. We've only gotten 1 Vita game this month. But then again, originally it was supposed to be 3 games a month, then they changed it at the last minute to 2 games a month. So who knows, maybe they'll start stiffing Vita-only subscriber even more.
