Nice update. I will enjoy Spec Ops: The line. And damn The Cave came into the IGC fairly quickly. How well did it sell on the PS3?

This is a great time to pick up Sumioni: Demon Arts, I wanted that game to go on sale for a while now. Happy to see it for $7 dollars. Sony needs to release a bigger memory card size for the Vita and/or drop the price of the 32GB card, I need another one. I'm running out of space.

Hey guys, America is getting EVEN MORE stuff than what is found in this article! On another page also found in Sony's official PS blog, it says were also getting these ADDITIONAL games for free to celebrate the Vita's 1 year anniversary:

Wild Arms (PS one Classic)
Patapon (PSP)
Piyotama (PSP)
Patchwork Heroes (PSP)

(So, that's a total of SIX Vita-compatable games this month (when combining Disgaea 3 and Tekken 6) AND THREE PS3 games).

That's a CRAZY total of 9 games!!!!! Finally they heard us when we were upset about the stuff EU was getting vs the crap we were getting.

Here is the link:

Those 4 games are not part of the IGC. So, I don't think you need a plus subscription to get those games.

Which is a good thing for those that don't have plus, but want some free games. And for those that don't want to renew their subscription, they still have access to those games.

lol...celebrating the vita anniversary by giving away games that werent originally made for vita...awesome

FamilyGuy1784d ago

Wild Arms eh, i might just download that

Smashbro291784d ago

I'm confused, you need to use the Vita to get these additional games?

thorstein1784d ago

@smash yes... those are for vita.

Silly gameAr1784d ago

I think Wild Arms is a PS1 classic that can be played on the PSP, Vita and PS3. I hope it can can played on the PS3 anyway.

guitarded771784d ago

Wow... this is the first month that I don't own anything on the list. Good thing I have a 1TB hard drive coming in the mail tomorrow.

MuleKick1783d ago

Dammit. I quite literally just bought Spec Ops. Maybe 5 days ago. Ah well. I guess I'll try to sell it to someone.

stacking was free on launch with PS+, this is not that surprising.

-Alpha1784d ago

Stacking was great, would love a sequel

ABizzel11784d ago (Edited 1784d ago )

For once the game of the month (Spec Ops), is one I already have. Time to sell it and download for free.

typikal821784d ago

Hope you have the HDD space

-GametimeUK-1784d ago

Download for free?
Yeah, I should pay for X-box live gold so I can play online for free.

badz1491783d ago

Fail troll is FAIL!

XBL Gold doesn't give you the game Spec Ops: The Line even if you pay the fee. You still need to buy the freaking game!

ABizzel11783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )


That's right you do have to pay for PS+, so I guess I just bought Spec Ops for about $1, seeing how we get to download on average 4 games per month.

Still a good deal to me.

Oh and actually I still had the game in the plastic, so I took it back to Wal-Mart and got me a $30 Gift Card that can go towards another year of PS+. Now that's GOLD worthy to me.

DA_SHREDDER1784d ago

Kingthrash3601784d ago

I just bought it two weeks ago...........dam.....great game tho...but dam...smh

unchartedxplorer1784d ago

Damn. PS plus is looking more appealing by the day.

Outsider-G1784d ago

+, haven't had any complaints so far as being a member since July 12'. I hope maintenance could hurry up so I could get another year(with 3 months free)

mi_titan271784d ago (Edited 1784d ago )

definitely time to upgrade to the 32gb vita memory card! all those discounts are awesome.

mi_titan271784d ago

i saw that price last night, just gotta wait till payday i hope it stays on sale.

Snookies121784d ago

Even my 32 GB card is full already... Lol

born2live1784d ago

I know! I've got a 16 gb and a 32 gb, and they are both full, and a lot of it is ps+ stuff, and a lot of free games... When will they sell 64 gb cards? Actually, make it 128 gb and I'll get it, even for $250...(although it would probably be more expensive than that...)
