PSN Summer Sale- What to Buy?

#1 Posted by D_Bones (421 posts) -

Hey duders, sony announced a summer sale. 30% off for regular folks and 50% for plus members.

The games revealed are...



-Jurassic Park

-Killzone 3 multiplayer

-Pac-Man Champ DX

-Infamous: Festival of Blood

-Shadow of the Collosus HD

-Real Steel

-Renegade Ops

-House of the DeadIII

-Worms: Ultimate Mayhem

So which are you guys gonna get? Personally thinking Infamous maybe Crysis and curious yet wary of Closure. Any endorsements?

@D_Bones: If you haven't got it Pac-Man Champion Edition DX is the game to get there, that and Renegade Ops.

#3 Posted by spiceninja (3167 posts) -

Infamous was good but it's only about 2 hours long and doesn't have a platinum trophy. So unless you're a huge Infamous fan I'd pass on it since it's not all that special. Pac-Man DX is something everyone needs to own. It's go god damn good it's unreal.

#4 Posted by AltonBrown (967 posts) -

SOTC. That game's pretty good.

#5 Edited by Jeust (11587 posts) -

Kind of disappointing. There is nothing there I want.

Renegade Ops. More people need to play that game.

#8 Posted by Redbullet685 (6239 posts) -

Nothing that I really want. Hopefully there is gonna more games on sale that they haven't revealed.

And for the OP, I would say that SOTC, Pac-Man CE DX and Renegade Ops are all great games.

#9 Posted by Nightriff (6519 posts) -

Leaning towards Crysis, I never played it on PC so might as well try it

#10 Posted by mrpandaman (887 posts) -

I'm probably just going to get Renegade Ops.

It's not the greatest lineup of games, but at least its something. Most of them are pretty solid games.

#11 Posted by D_Bones (421 posts) -

Wow I just realized I never should ask you guys to help suggest games. I also thought lineup was fairly mediocre but now am considering like five. Jerks lol

No Vita games? Fuck you Sony.

#13 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

No Vita games? Fuck you Sony.

That's would require them to actually care about Vita.
#14 Posted by Vonocourt (2186 posts) -

I'll probably pick up Crysis and Infamous.

#15 Posted by Doctorchimp (4175 posts) -

Man, Steam needs to get their sale going.

European PSN had a Vita sale earlier. I was hoping we'd have one here soon, too..

#17 Posted by Xerxes8933A (226 posts) -

For 30% off? None. Steam has ruined every other "sale" for me.

#18 Posted by HatKing (6564 posts) -

I could definitely go for playing through Shadows of the Colossus in HD. I might check out Crysis as well, if the price is right.

#19 Posted by Addfwyn (1983 posts) -

Shadow of the Colossus HD for sure. Anything else worthwhile I already have.

If you don't have them, the Infamous DLC and Renegade Ops are good buys.

#20 Posted by mitsuko_souma (138 posts) -

That's a pretty sad looking list.

#21 Posted by rachelepithet (1645 posts) -

Pacman, Renegade Ops, Shadow OTC

#22 Posted by spankingaddict (2840 posts) -

Everyone ....hey ,everyone ! GET CLOSURE .

#23 Posted by spankingaddict (2840 posts) -

Too bad Me3 isn't on this list .

#24 Posted by JTB123 (1167 posts) -

Does Crysis use the same control layout as Crysis 2 on consoles? If so I'll definitely pick that up.

#25 Posted by Nekroskop (2831 posts) -

Already got Renegade OPS through that free PSN+ promotion. I'd have to say House of the Dead. I've been on a lightgun binge lately.

#26 Posted by amp_1986 (217 posts) -

I'll probably pick up Infamous and Crysis.

#27 Posted by Jrinswand (1745 posts) -

I don't think I've ever bought a game during a PSN sale. Steam has spoiled me for sales. 30% discounts don't hold the same allure that they used to.

#28 Posted by Blannir (277 posts) -

I'm psyched to finally get Pac-Man for cheap.

#29 Posted by MooseyMcMan (12053 posts) -

Neat-o! I should get Renegade Ops, and maybe Crysis. Maybe. And maybe something else, depending on the prices. I don't know how much a lot of that stuff costs normally.

#32 Posted by Brodehouse (10723 posts) -


#33 Posted by GamingSince81 (39 posts) -

The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection is $20 on Amazon right now. Anyone know how much SOTC is on PSN?

#34 Posted by Vexxan (4627 posts) -

I finished Renegade Ops today, I'd say it's worth checking out, even better if you have someone to play multiplayer with.

#35 Posted by Sogeman (909 posts) -

I hope Europe gets games I actually want. If that's also our list, nothing for me.

#36 Posted by kpaadet (420 posts) -

I might get Closure and Festival of Blood.

#38 Posted by D_Bones (421 posts) -

The list originally bummed me out as i thought they could do better but really there are some good games here. Looking forward to tuesday think crysis is now in the yes pile with infamous and might have to check out renegade ops cause of positive endorsements

#39 Posted by crusader8463 (14756 posts) -

None of that appeals to me at all.

#40 Posted by GalacticPunt (1212 posts) -

Over on the Sony blog, they pretty much confirmed that Pacman Championship DX got pulled from this, because it's one of the freebies for PS+ next month. So pretty awesome, depending on whether you have Plus or not.

#41 Posted by ADAMWD (692 posts) -

@GamingSince81: I think the PSN deal is just SoTC and not ICO.

I might do SotC and Infamous 2: FoB, not back pickups for a PS+ member.
