If you’ve got some money to spare and are looking for a new game to play, this weekend will be a good time to shop!
Sony is helping fans save some money this weekend as they will be having a sale of 10% off all games on PSN. You get the discount by putting in a special code, and the 10% will be taken off of your cart total.
Although the biggest appeal for this deal is to snag some new games, you can also use this discount for subscriptions, pre-orders and rentals.
This deal is only for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in the USA and Canada and you have until Monday, March 30th at Noon PDT to use the code. The code is LQ8ERDQH3A. Enjoy!
For $20 a month you can have unlimited access to over 100 PS3 games.
When Sony originally began testing their PlayStation Now service it was met with much moaning as a lot of people felt that the price to stream many of the games was simply too much. People would much prefer to have one monthly price to pay that would allow them access to many games rather than be charged individually for each, and this sentiment is something that Sony took to heart when they went back to the drawing board.
Now, Sony has revealed that the service is set to launch in North America on January 13th and will cost subscribers $20 per month to stream the services 100+ PS3 games. These games can be streamed through PS3, PS4, PS Vita and Smart TVs, though at the current time the only system that can stream the games will be PS4. You also have the option to pay $45 per quarter, which would save you $15 over the regular $60 that it would cost otherwise.
The games that the PlayStation Now service offers is pretty solid, with critically-acclaimed games such as The Last of Us, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City and a whole lot more being a part of the service. A video was released that unveiled most of this information, with more info being contained on the company’s website right here. Check out the video below.
If you were affected by the recent PSN downtime, then Sony is giving you 5 free days of PSN onto your current subscription.
The PlayStation Network was attacked by the Lizard Squad at one of the busiest times of the year, when thousands of gamers are home for the holidays and trying out their new games.
So, to compensate for the downtime, Sony is adding five free days to all PS+ subscribers current subscription. Here’s what Sony wrote on their official blog:
“Since access to PlayStation Network was impacted during the holidays, we wanted to show our appreciation for your patience by offering all PlayStation Plus members that had an active membership or free trial on December 25th a membership extension of five days.”The extension will be automatically applied, so no action is necessary to receive the extension. We will post additional information here on the blog when the extension becomes available. If your membership or trial ends before the extension is available, you will receive five days of Plus to enjoy once the extension becomes available (we will notify you when).
In addition, sometime this month we will announce that for a limited time, we will be offering a 10 percent discount code good for a one-time discount off a total cart purchase in the PlayStation Store as a thank you to ALL PSN members.
The discount can be used towards great content available on PS Store including blockbuster new releases, award winning indie games, game add-ons and season passes, and an enormous selection of TV and Movies.”
It’s been in development as a PlayStation 3 game for years, but recent comments may be implying that The Last Guardian is headed for PlayStation 4.
So, you probably know of the long-running development time of the The Last Guardian. It was originally announced in 2009 for the PlayStation 3, yet it has seen countless delays and even got to points where many assumed it was cancelled. However, in recent months the game has been getting a lot of buzz as news continues to slowly come out about development going well.
Still, considering this was originally a PlayStation 3 game, would they really stick to a last-gen system now that PlayStation 4 is coming into its own? Well, if a recent quote from game creator Fumito Ueda is to be taken a certain way, then The Last Guardian just might be making the jump to PlayStation 4.
Here’s what Ueda had to say about The Last Guardian in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation (via Kotaku):
“Talks with Sony Computer Entertainment on The Last Guardian have been ironed out, and we’re making progress under completely new conditions. I’m also working on some other things that I’ll hopefully be able to show in time if progress is smooth.”
Many are assuming that these “completely new conditions” are the fact that the game is now working within the boundaries of the PlayStation 4 and not the PlayStation 3. There’s still the potential that this thing could end up being a cross-gen game, but for such a highly-anticipated game you would think Sony would want it to be a PS4 exclusive. Their 2015 line-up isn’t exactly overflowing with exclusive titles, but add The Last Guardian and things get much more interesting for the system.
Check out some of the charming new critters that will be helping out Sackboy very soon.
Sony will be bringing the charming world of LittleBigPlanet back this month with the release of LittleBigPlanet 3, and they have gone ahead and released 3 character trailers showing off some of Sackboy’s companions this time around. Oddsock can run really fast and wall slide, Swoop can fly over various obstacles and Toggle can move heavy objects.
Check out the 3 character trailers for Oddsock, Swoop and Toggle below.
LittleBigPlanet 3 is developed by Sumo Digital for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. It’s set to launch on both systems on 11/18/14 in the USA, 11/26/14 in Europe, 11/28/14 in the UK and 12/4/14 in Japan.
You’ll be coming to Middle-earth a bit sooner than expected.
Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has moved up a week, making it yet another game that is sneaking out of the over-crowded month of October.
The game was originally set to release on October 7th, but now it is hitting North America on September 30th. The game will then be released on PC and Steam on October 2nd.
WB claims that the release was moved up due to fans excitement, but I think it’s pretty obvious that October 7th was simply too crowded of a release date. The date still hols NBA 2k15, DriveClub and Alien: Isolation, with Dragon Age: Inquisition recently being pushed back to November from its original October 7th release date.
