Rag Doll Kung Fu to be free for a limited time?

PSN games have always delivered a great value for a meager price. Now, it looks like the deal is about to get even sweeter. Advertisements on several gaming sites have been spotted, indicating that Sony may be giving Rag Doll Kung Fu away free for a limited time. (PS3, Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic)

Awesome!!!
but I think it's a glitch because when you gou to games it says 9.99 but when you go to sprint it says free???

any other free games?
Were there any other free psn games that I may have missed? I'll gladly get this one but I am just curious if there had been other promo titles given away up to now.
gaffyh  +   2242d ago
Yes I can confirm it is free, just go to the store, click the ad, go into Sprint and download the full game from there. This is a crazy deal, the game usually costs $10

Edit; It's only the US store guys

@lokiroo
Thanks for that. I had gotten many a free games from XBL and it is good to see Sony starting to offer similar goodies. Maybe sony should offer up a free movie or tv show once in awhile.

There was one over on Gametrailers.com, I wonder what is up.

if the ad in the pic. is real i bet it has something to do with sprint.. maybe like get the sprint service before may 21th and get a psn game free.. or summin.. looks too good to be true
The_Devil_Hunter  +   2242d ago
No its on the store for free..no catch...or is there.
dznutz00  +   2242d ago
maybe it has something to do with the new palm pre that coming out soon?
antt3  +   2242d ago
Yeah, I'm guessing you'll have to either buy a sprint phone or activate service or something, and then they'll give you a free game. But I guess we'll find out.
SpaceSquirrel  +   2242d ago
Its up on the Playstation Store Right Now!
No strings attached!
micro_invader  +   2242d ago
All regions? I've already got the game, just asking on behalf of everyone else.
SpaceSquirrel  +   2242d ago
US only. But i think you can make a US account to dl it.
Tetsuryu  +   2242d ago
I can confirm this as well; downloading it right now (US Store).

Me too!
Can't say no to a free game :D
UltimateIdiot911  +   2242d ago
No idea how the game is, but it's free. So I'm not complaining.
Klopek  +   2242d ago
Just made a US account. Nice ;)
na2ru1  +   2242d ago
Already got it.
Absolutely a blast when you play with mates. And the visuals are very sharp. Just another 1080p with LBP graphics. Achieving gold and plastic on many challenges is a bit tedious though.

edit: it sucks i know. i think it's only for USA though so no biggy for me.

Wow so basically sprint has a deal now with Sony and did any one else notice that sprint has a section for themselves in the psn store
antt3  +   2242d ago
Yup, from the playstation blog:

"Hi Everyone –

For the first time on PlayStation Network, we have partnered with Sprint to bring you the PSN exclusive game, Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic, for FREE in the U.S. store. That’s right. The game is free to download this week. Check out the Sprint channel on PlayStation Store to access the game, free Sprint videos, wallpapers and an exclusive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Monsters XMB Theme.

Also, Bionic Commando Rearmed is on sale now for $4.99 (original price $9.99) for one week only, so act fast!"
callahan09  +   2242d ago
It's free right now. I'm downloading now. Awesome! Now I'm really glad I didn't buy it yet.

Simon_Brezhnev  +   2242d ago

ZombieNinjaPanda  +   2242d ago
Why a question mark?

I just downloaded it.

Feel sorry for those people that bought it though :S
gauntletpython  +   2242d ago
I think when they posted the article, the deal wasn't live yet, just the advertisements were up.
antt3  +   2242d ago
Yeah, originally it was "speculation" based on some ads that were seen around on the net. (consequently, that's why in my first post I was a tad cynical, saying that we would probably have to buy a phone to get the free game... :-P ) Glad I was wrong.
gtafan  +   2242d ago
I just saved some money with PS3.
Downloading right now. woohoo I just got 10.00 dollars back for no reason on my PS3 investment. It's so cool I am getting money back in my pocket. It pays to be a PS3 owner. Would also like to thank N4G and the contributor for bringing non-flaming news and instead a little reward for reading alot of the junk on here.

Wait
Are you saying that you bought the game before this deal, decided to DL it again and and got your money back, or that the money you spent on it is back in your account?
gtafan  +   2242d ago
No it means I don't have to spend money to get it right now. Because I was pretty close to buying it anyway so I saved some money. By not purchasing it. Come on man it's a joke some people are pretty lame.
Microsoft_Spokesman  +   2242d ago
Confirmed for free, downloading now!

I live in Canada and I was able to make a US account and it still worked!!!

Thanks Sony.
ARog34  +   2242d ago
LOL...
...I open the store, and see sprint FREE Rag-Doll, WTH... downloading NOW! Is this too good to be true? This game is made by Media Molecule, if I'm not mistaken, the same devs for LBP!!!

AWESOME...! I guess it is true... oh yea, hopin' on Home now to get FREE appt!
Godmars290  +   2242d ago
This is a pleasant surprise.
And they just put it out too.

@Above:
They're offing a free Apt in Home RIGHT NOW. Fantasy setting set around a tree with a face and fairies in its branches. 4-5 fire pits you can turn into waterfalls and two large side rooms for furnishings.

Damnit, I think Sony just got me - I need matching furnisher. A BIG screen TV when they ever offer it. Maybe two.

Whoooop  +   2242d ago
The game doesn't feature online so I guess it isn't selling that well. That may be the reason they are giving it for free temporary so they can sell more later on by word of mouth.

That's just my theory... Anyway, it's nice to get it for free.

You know...
...if it has Trophies?

at least something good about? Idk, a free game that is usually $10 is a REAL DEAL... holy cow! But, doesn't it also have offline multiplayer at least?
Klopek  +   2242d ago
It has trophies.
ARog34  +   2242d ago
Yes, just finished D/Ling...
-Quicky Review-

~First play was quite fun, just tried the tutorial, and made a character, and it appears to be a relative deep game!

~Yes, there is multiplayer (no online), but that's sufficient.

~Motion controls are crazy, and I guess I need to work with them more... the game is actually, ridiculously fun... woulda payed $10... but I DIDN'T lol!
deshon09  +   2242d ago
well
i love the price
J@D  +   2242d ago
free rulz!!!11 I must said ^^
FireJackal  +   2242d ago
One question,the game is good?
Anyway is free so that doesn't really matter =P
Ldubbz  +   2242d ago
For all of the bickering
on N4G, I think we can all agree free is good.

Will check this out tonight...but is this game any good? Looks like IGN didnt think so...

And Bionic Commando is only $5 like someone posted earlier, and will be 400 points on LIVE on the 25th of May.
Traveler  +   2242d ago
Cool. I'm going to go download it right now.
cardgenius  +   2242d ago
Game sucks. Now I know why it was free. Controls are way too loose for a fighter.
