Did you write this article bro?
Neonridr  +   213d ago
Still doesn't make any sense. Reign of Giants will be free when it releases for the PS Vita if you own the PS4 version? Will the base game be free as well?

Article doesn't really do a good job clarifying anything.

And it didn't have any information about the Vita when I made that comment. The article has been edited since then.

All we know is...

"The Giant Edition costs $14.99, and includes the Reign of Giants expansion. This expansion is usually $4.99, and we’ve bundled it in for everyone. It includes new characters, seasons, biomes, and other challenges that will happily kill you."

"BUT! We love you all, so we’re making the game cross buy! If you own Don’t Starve on PS4, you get the Vita version for free, and vice versa. Thank you for supporting our game, and please spread the word so we can keep making more interesting games!"

Sadly it can go either way, but all we know for sure is that Vita users will 100% get it and the game itself is a cross-buy title. With that being said, how did this article get approved? That title is one of the most misleading titles I've seen on this site and is woefully inaccurate (for the most part).

The biggest question I want to know is did I have to buy it? It was on Plus a while ago. Would it know any different. I am sure it does but one can always hope for a loop hole.

@ Iamsuperman

While things can change, you should be safe. Hotline Miami worked, God of War worked and probably others I am forgetting about.
AntsPai  +   213d ago
God of War didn't work for me with cross buy on Vita, seems you can only get the collection :S
admiralvic  +   213d ago
@ AntsPai

It was collection or both games I believe. I bought them both separately and got the Vita version for free.

well on the blog it says that if you own the ps4 version you will get the vita version free. The vita version includes reign of giants built in. I could see why the author would assume, since it was cross buy and you would have reign of giants on the vita that you would on the ps4 for free too. Thats not necisarraly true because you are not getting the dlc to download on the vita, its a different version that has it built in. I dont see why getting that version would download a dlc on your ps4, but maybe. well see when it releases.

Yes bro I Did I just changed it to bold letters so you can be sure that PS VITA version is free if you got PlayStation 4 Version of the game
Rimgal  +   213d ago
That's cool dude. I noticed that you updated the article, and now it's more clear that this only refers to the PS Vita.
DareDevilDD  +   213d ago
Thnx Rimgal :) and sorry for inconvenience

Is rambling, poorly-worded article trying to say that RoG on the Vita will be cross-buy?
admiralvic  +   213d ago
Correct. You can read the PlayStation Blog post here http://blog.us.playstation.... .
Phaethon0017  +   213d ago
That article was very poorly worded.
DoomeDx  +   213d ago
Horrible article. The submitter wrote this article and calling everybody a 'bro' in the comment sections says enough about how professional he is.
ravens52  +   213d ago
If you own the ps4 version its free for vita when it comes out. If you don't own the ps4 version you don't get it for free. Finally if you don't own it at all and you buy it on vita when it comes out you then get it free for ps4 which is the meaning of cross buy :)

That was difficult to read! I hope English is not the author's first language.
XtraTrstrL  +   213d ago
Dude can't write for sh*t. I also thought it meant it was free on PS4 now. I was happy, cuz I was just saying to myself yesterday that I'd buy the expansion the next time I get on my PS4. Guess I'll still have to buy it, thanks for nothing - crappy worded article.

Don't starve for free? You mean I can get paid to starve?
gamerguru111  +   213d ago
Well Title is bit tempting but its clearly mentioned cross buy on Article i guess we should stop critisizing and try to admire someones efforts because he aint even using any type of ads so he isnt making money as far as i think
Peace :)

sooooo....free food?
SHAMEonNINJAS  +   213d ago
its just a cross buy. if you already bought it on ps4 then it is free on vita.. if you buy for vita its ree on ps4. What's so hard to understand in the article besides the click bait title?
admiralvic  +   213d ago
Well, some people were wondering if the Reign of the Giants DLC would go free, since it's "bundled" with the Vita version and neither this or the original source really clarify if it does or doesn't.

" What's so hard to understand in the article besides the click bait title?"

Also, come on, the article is hard to read / understand. Just look at this bit from the excerpt...

"Sony has announced that the expansion Reign of the giants will be totally free for the customers who already got a PlayStation 4 on their side means if they already bought a PlayStation 4. "

So the title says Don't Starve is free, but the excerpt says the Reign of the Giants expansion will be free. It also says customers who "already got a PS4 on their side," which sounds like it's free for anyone who has bought PS4s (Sony has done promos like this) and doesn't make it particularly clear that it's a cross-buy. I normally wouldn't attack people for bad English (especially since this article feels like it was google translated), but they could have easily said. "Today Sony announced that Don't Starve will release on September 9, 2014 and will support cross-buy. This means if you bought or plan on buying Don't Starve, you will get the other version of it for free."

That's all I got out of the article honestly. It's the only part of any value. It is a terrible article and headline but I wasn't annoyed after reading it like some of these other articles lol.

Another port. How exciting.

Still, Don't Starve and Rogue Legacy are two of the finest rogue-likes out there and its really cool being able to play em on the Vita.

This game stunk on ps4 how's it gonna be any better on vita?
WitWolfy  +   213d ago
Likewise, never could get into it. Maybe there is an audience for it, but it isnt for me.
poor_cus_of_games  +   207d ago
Surprise surprise the incredible troll is slagging off a ps4 game. Wow I'm truly shocked and surprised. Also since you don't actually have a ps4.

My favorite game on PS4 right now, Don't starve Reign of Gieants.. I bought it for 4.99, I'm not mad though because I got the base game FREE when they gave that out on PS+ a long time ago.

Now it's cross buy and I get it for free on my VITA? I'm loving this idea.
andibandit  +   212d ago
cmon bro, there are tons of better titles on PS4, how can this be your favorite???
FAT MAN GO BOOM  +   210d ago
Every gamer needs to play this game.... you are not a gamer unless you do...

Only epic awesome gamers have or will buy this game...

If you have this game you are awesome and your awesomely awesomeness puts non Don;t Starve gamers to shame...

Only real gamer can play this game... the rest that do not play this are casual touch games that love micro transactions and can only play madden or Cod... the rest of the games to them they are oblivious too...
