Not interested in yet another FIGHTING game for the Vita. Please stop with them already. I will be picking up Divekick and several of the Vita games on sale though.

Yes! Star Wars Pinball!! Can't wait. And one of my favorite fighting series Darkstalkers for PSP! I would be interested in the non instant game collection but I don't have a job.....still! No job = no money, no money = can't buy games. Sucks too because I need to have a job before May of next year when my PS Plus will expire.

Another Pin Ball Game... if only I actually enjoyed this crap on a console.

 

Better offerings for September please & enough with the shovel-ware games & in Star Wars Pin Ball case stop trying to pass off DLC as a full game.

Well, KZM Beta Access at least kind of makes up for the crappy Pinball and PSP Fighter IGC we're getting.

 

Also glad to finally get a release date (and PS+ Discount) on Spelunky as I was really tempted to get it on Steam - but glad I held off because I can't wait to play it on Vita!
