Sleeping Dogs and Knytt for me ONLY this month.

 

As i see it US PS+ is becoming what EU PS+ was a couple of months ago, slowly offering decent content.

 

So I expect US PS+ to get Okami HD in June for IGC, and even more GARBAGE FIGHTING GAMES FOR THE VITA!

 

Thanks A LOT for this utter vita trash these past few months. Really shows how much we have lost on the vita purchase. I'm planning to sell it now, HOPEFULLY breaking even instead of losing 75% of the vita's price tag.

Wow, Sleeping Dogs looks so cool. I'll get it! I just wish I didn't have so much on my plate now. I'm still on Demon's Souls from last month, Zombie Tycoon 2, and games from the All Stars Sales. I need to either stop doing work for school and fail or give up one of these games for a while. Ok, I'll give up school work.  Smiley Very Happy

Hope you get some money for your vita. I will actually bet you your vita that your are going to be disappointed when you sell it.

 

Also "Really shows how much we have lost on the vita purchase."   You mean "you" right, because I am not complaining, I have a crap ton of games still playing on my vita. I have not even bought soul sacrifice yet and need for speed, so complain all you want while I try and catch up on the games I have not got yet.

@mochuuu

 

In another thread you said there was a game that you hadn't announced. Was it "Germinator"?

 

Also, in part of your post it says Pinball for PS3 only, but in another part it says for cross-buy. Thought I'd point it out so you can edit it appropriately.

I'd say it was Germinator as that game was not mentioned on the blogcast last week.
