At Least Sony Didn't Forget the PlayStation Vita's Birthday

Posted by Sammy Barker


We’d love to say that we baked the PlayStation Vita a big slab of cherry and almond cake for its second birthday this weekend, but we’d be lying if we did. The truth is that we forgot, and now we’re not on speaking terms with the handheld system. Fortunately, we’re hoping to rekindle our relationship with the down-in-the-dumps device by buying a selection of new games – and Sony’s aiming to ensure that our belated bash won’t break the bank with a buffet of cut price best sellers.

Starting today in North America, sensible PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to secure savings of up to 75 per cent off a slew of noteworthy titles, including CastleStorm, Escape Plan, and Hotline Miami. Particular highlights comprise Killzone Mercenary for $17.49, Velocity Ultra for $2.09, and Machinarium for – wait for it – just $1.75. The promotion’s set to run through 3rd March, so you’ve got plenty of time to cough up for an anniversary treat. Whatever you do, though, don’t forget.

Feb price cuts for UK have been decent, I bought hotline Miami, monster hunter freedom unite and dungeon hunter all for pittance. Will pick up tearaway for knock down £12 ish too before the sale ends.

It'd be a shame if we didn't get a sniff at this in the UK. With Sony's ever customer friendly cross buy system it'd be a handy way to get cheaper PS4 versions of Flower, Flow and Escape Plan (all of which I don't have)

Doubtful we'll get something, the people running PS+ for Sony Europe have turned into a right bunch of arsehats since the autumn. All the praise they were getting in the first three quarters of the year has gone to their heads and we're now left with a game less a month than promised (cost of PS4 is the excuse, yet America has three still) no new yearly Vita titles as promised, PSP games in IGC (something they swore they wouldn't do), an update schedule that is non-existent and the people running it and the blog refusing to answer any questions on it. All they'd have had to do is warn people in advance but nope, ignore the people and carry on.

Personally I still think PS+ is extraordinary value for money but you can't have people signing up for something and then changing it when you feel like. They only told us there'd be two PS3 games a week after the releases were announced (refusing to talk about it) and a good month after the Vita titles were meant to change. If you have all three consoles like I'm fortunate to have then it's still great but if you have just a PS3 or especially the Vita you're starting to become conned.
