Sony Launches Sale and Wipeout 2048 Content Tomorrow

It looks like Sony has suddenly remembered that it has a handheld out there on the market, as they are heavily discounting loads of Vita games on the Playstation Store. To add to this, Wipeout 2048 is going to be having a gigantic patch added to it.

The Playstation Store discounts are looking pretty hefty with some big games like Unit 13 down to only £20. Here is a full list (info sourced from Eurogamer):
  • Army Corps from Hell - was €39.99/£34.99 - Now €26.99/£21.99
  • Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend - Was €39.99/£34.99 - Now €26.99/£21.99
  • Little Deviants - Was €14.99/£11.99 - Now €10.99/£8.99
  • Modnation Racers: Road Trip - Was €14.99/£11.99 - Now €10.99/£8.99
  • Rayman Origins - Was €34.99/£29.99 - Now €24.99/£19.99
  • Reality Fighters - Was €14.99/£11.99 - Now €10.99/£8.99
  • Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen - Was €39.99/£34.99 - Now €19.99/£16.99
  • Touch My Katamari - Was €29.99/£24.99 - Now €14.99/£11.99
  • Unit 13 - Was €34.99/£29.99 - Now €24.99/£19.99
  • Escape Plan - Was €12.99/£9.99 - Now €8.99/£7.29
  • Hustle Kings - Was €7.99/£6.49 - Now €5.99/£4.79
  • Motorstorm RC - Was €5.99/£4.79 - Now €4.99/£3.99
  • Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack! - Was €6.99/£5.49 - Now €4.99/£3.99
  • Top Darts - Was €7.99/£6.49 - Now €5.99/£4.79
  • Super Stardust Delta + Advanced Star Fighter Pack - Was €9.99/£7.99 - Now €6.99/£5.49
So some really good deals, bringing some of the launch titles like Modnation Racers down to less than £10 really has me interested. This looks something akin to a Steam sale!

Wipeout's new patch will basically be two content packs: Wipeout HD and Wipeout HD Fury. These will feature all the tracks from their respective games so 12 from Wipeout HD and 12 from Fury, as well as ships from each game 12 from HD and 24 from Fury. Each pack is available separably for £6.49 each or you can purchase a double pack for £9.99, that's 24 new tracks and 36 new ships for a tenner, sounds like an amazing deal if you ask me. Not only that, but those who already own Wipeout HD and Fury will get all of it for free and, if you don't own them already, they will be available for you to download onto PS3 if you buy them for Vita.

These bits of news are pretty fantastic, some great deals and a huge amount of content available for barely anything. This probably would have been good for Sony to announce last week at E3 but I can't honestly argue with a good deal. It might be that Sony is now trying hard to keep consumers after the not so spectacular sales of the Vita. However, that's just pure speculation. The end result is cheap games, which is always worth checking out.

  1. Didn't buy a PSP day one. Couldn't wait, so I imported one from the States. The Vita looks amazing, but until my favorite series (Monster Hunter) is released, I'm just not that bothered. Having the three big consoles, recently upgrading my PC into a behemoth and a stack of AAA sealed games had something to do with it too. :P
