Vita Xmas Discount on PS Store?

8 replies 297 views Edited Dec 11, 2012

Hey guys, I am new to the Vita scene and the Vita is working great! Picked up a 32gb with my plus subscription and it's following me everywhere nowadays. Just wondering if Sony will be having xmas sales on PS Store as I am looking to purchase some classics onto my new vita, having Vita graphics with Xenogears or FFVIII will be great.

 

PS: Great community by the way!

Welcome to the Vita world Smiley Happy

If you have a PS3 you should be able to download the PSOne titles (FFVIII & Xenogears) then copy to your vita. They would not be vita graphics, but the same PSOne graphics.

There will 100% be some Christmas sales on the Network, so just keep your eyes peeled Smiley Happy

Those are actually available straight from PSN on your Vita.

 

Looking forward to the HD version of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath. Comes out next week on the 18th. They haven't said how much it will cost.

 

I'm new to using PSN also, not to Playstation though.

 

So J Siggy, you're saying PSN has holiday discounts much like Steam does?

Cool, thanks J Siggy.

 

Yeah, I didn't think Sony would sell games for $3.78 like Steam does, but wasn't sure if it was something they did each holiday. Good to know.

Question: How long do these deals usually last? Hours, day(s), week?

depends on what kinda of sale. also, it will probably be a sale where everyone (not just ps+) can get 1hr trials, 10-25% off. b2g1.  Not huge deals, but still deals. 

 

or, it could be really good deals, but for like 5 games. like maybe uncharted 1 for 7.99, infamous 7.99 gow1&2 10.99.  where it will be good games, that are somewhat old, but have good discounts.

 

again, pure speculation

 

but probably week before and week after christmas, with really special deal on christmas day/eve?
