Free games for Vita (don't think these are PS+, just free for everyone)

Patapon

Patchwork Heroes

Piyotama

Wild Arms (this is the PS1 port so it probably works for PS3 also)

I think those may be only redeemable if you download them directly to your Vita. They're not even available to buy if you search for them in the store on PS3. It could have been a glitch though, I haven't checked since last night when it was first updated.

You're right, it's only available as free on the Vita. Also, I moved it from the second post back to the first. Changed it there by accident.

@coafi: Play that game ASAP. It's really good.

Humm . . thanks, I guess.

Humm . . you're welcome, I guess.

Forgot to say what I got. Well, here is my list from this weeks purchases:

  • Wild Arms - Got it for free as said above and I'm liking it. It's an old school JRPG which I tend to enjoy. I didn't know there were 6 titles though! I'd like to see a new one for the PS4 be made.
  • Oddwold: Strangers Wrath - I was mainly intrigued by this game because you use animals as ammo. It's got some humor which I like and hogtying up bad guys is fun. I'm enjoying it, even if it isn't that great because the Vita's analogs aren't good for FPS games.
  • I downloaded the PSP games onto my Vita but they didn't click with me so I deleted them.
  • Played they Runner2 demo. I'd prefer to play that on my Vita so I'll wait for it to hit Vita this summer.

I was tempted to get EDF 2017 for $30 but I'm too poor and my backlog is to big so I couldn't do it.

@awesomeusername: I guess they will roll out those other free games on a weekly basis. I don't remember them announcing what was coming later in the month before. Really looking forward to Joe Danger 2 and Disgaea 3.

Anyways , Thanks for the list. :D

@hughesman: I'm going to guess the Vita games are coming at the end of the month since that's what they've been doing with the Vita PS+. Or maybe Tekken & Joe Danger 2 next week, then The Cave and then Disgaea. That's what I think. This is the first time they showed a monthly update. A lot of people have been asking for it and they finally were allowed to do it so we're probably going to be getting Plus updates like this from now on since they said they'll be doing more if the response was positive and it was very positive.

You're welcome!

Don't expect a new Wild Arms anytime in the future. Sony murdered that franchise and any future of that series with the last couple of games in the series.

@solh0und: So the rest were garbage. Makes sense since they milked that franchise. It'd be nice to have a new one though. I'll probably buy the second one after I beat this one and clear my backlog since it's on the Vita store.

Australian PS+ subscribers can download Mass Effect 3 for free right now, the only reason I can see is EA and Bioware wanting to push DLC sales such as that new Citadel DLC.

@awesomeusername Yup. The free offerings have really been enticing me month to month, and with the tax return in the bank, now seems like the right time to get on board. It's such a crazy deal... there are so many 59.99 games in there I would normally pay full price for.

Vanquish and Oddworld pushed me over the edge I guess but I'm also pumped for inFamous 2 (late to the party, I know) and I'd like to replay Spec Ops.

Just went to download Wild Arms and the memory card has ran away from my vita. HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?!

Avatar image for awesomeusername
#25 Edited by awesomeusername (4610 posts) -

@jking47: So. You lost your memory card? Tsk tsk. I've put about 3 and a half hours into it in the past 2 days. It's not a lot but I've put more time into it then I've done for any other game in a month!

@geraltitude: Now is definitely a good time. Vanquish, inFAMOUS 2, Spec Ops, Darksiders, LBP2 and Closure alone surpass $50 and are worth it. Plus, every month they put in like 4-5 games so you're always getting new ones. My Plus expire in January 2014 so I'll have to resub then. But it's a great deal. I've saved a lot of money from the free games alone. Also, Oddworld isn't one of the free games. It's discounted by $4 on the Vita store for everyone. The PS3 version is still $15.

@plasmabeam44: Not sure if you have a Vita or not, but you can download them free with the Media Go software and then download them on your PS3, or i heard that the store on the PSP will work also.

@awesomeusername: If you could please update the list with that tip to help some duders out.

And the things i got where one year of PS+, Spec Ops and a few other games from the instant game collection and the free vita games.

I guess I'll just be "purchasing" Joe Danger 2 this week even though I won't play it for a long time. Nothing really interesting this week. I'm looking forward to new week though because we know we're getting The Cave and the PS All Stars DLC, which I'm getting for free.

I'd agree about 4 not being so good mainly because I don't like the hex battle system but 5 is probably my second favorite in the series after 2. Alter Code: F is a remake of the first game so it's great as well. I haven't played XF so I can't speak for that one.

Definitely is. Only titles that I'd play, I already have. Which are Rayman & Outland. Everything else is crap.

I'll be buying Persona 4 Golden since it's on sale for $30. I get the PS All Stars DLC for free since I pre-ordered God of War so I'll be downloading that. Getting The Cave.

@n7: Try using this and download from Account Management - Transaction Management - Download list from the XMB.

But the store appears to be working fine for me on my PS3 and from that site.

@n7: I think PSN is being kind of funky today. It's downloading P4G on my Vita at a crippled mans pace and the store was acting weird. I hope my PS3 isn't acting weird.

@lego_my_eggo:I forgot about the online store and I have it on my tabs! Tsk tsk. I'm going there now to get my stuff.

Sorry about posting late. Bioshock came out yesterday andddd... You know. Anyways,

  • I picked up my Ultimate Songbird Edition of Bioshock Infinite, you know, the crazy expensive edition that only fools would get.
  • I put Disgaea 3 in my download list.
  • Bought Red Faction: Guerilla & Red Faction: Armageddon on PSN because $5 a pop was to good to pass up. I've always been a bit intrigued by both so I'll have to dig into those in the next couple months.
  • Last week, I got Persona 4 Golden which I absolutely fell in love with. On Monday, I bought Persona 3 Portable on my Vita since it was on sale for $10. I need more Persona in my life after I beat P4G 5 times. I got the PS All Stars characters Isaac Clarke & Zues with my copy of God of War: Ascension and downloaded The Cave.
