PSA: Dragon's Crown free, more discounts on PSN Sale
by Josh Tolentino

It's not every day that you can get a bunch of good deals on a cool games, and that day has come if you're the type to buy things on PlayStation platforms. Both versions of Atlus' excellent Dragon's Crown are free to members of PS Plus, and you can get them right now.

In addition, a raftload of sweet Japanese games has also hit the budget bins, starting with a price drop for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance and discounts on the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remastered bundle and the Final Fantasy XIII sequels. PSP and PS1 Classics are also rife with sales, including Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger, Front Mission 3, Growlanser, Knights in the Nightmare, and the PSP Persona games.

Considering how many JRPGs and tactical games are in the array this month, that's at least several hundred hours of play for relatively little pay. Might be time to consider a purchase if your wallet's tight this summer. Check out the full list (non-Japanese games included) over at the PlayStation blog.

Japanese games star in the next PS Vita sale

Hey, you know what's cool? Games from Japan for the PS Vita! You know what else is cool? Not paying a lot for videogames! It just so happens that Sony agrees with me, and has decided that for the next fortnight or so, you won't have to pay a lot for a whole bunch of Japanese games on the PS Vita. Huzzah! 

Starting...well, a couple of days ago, a veritable host of the Vita's top wares go on sale via the PlayStation Network, and will go even more on sale if you've got PS Plus. Gravity Rush, one of the platform's best games to date, is even free as part of the PS Plus instant game collection. Other hot bangers like Soul Sacrifice, Atelier Totori Plus, and Street Fighter X Tekken are on sale, too. 

And on the week of the 20th, you can pair your copy of Dragon's Crown with Vanillaware's other Vita game, Muramasa Rebirth, along with the likes of Ragnarok Odyssey and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

That's a lot of games, and it's not even the full list (you can check that out below). So, Vita owners, see anything you like?

PSA: Persona and other Atlus titles on sale for Euro PSN
by Josh Tolentino

Are you a fan of deals? Sure you are! That's why Atlus is offering those of you European deal-lovers that also happen to be game-lovers a deal...on games. Atlus-published ones. On the PlayStation Network. 

From now until February 1st, 2013, four Atlus-published games will be going for a cool 50% off on the European PSN store. The games themselves range from the PSP rerelease of Persona, to the irreverent historical boulder-roller Rock of Ages, to the lovely three-way co-op platformer Trine 2, to Droplitz, which is a puzzle game with a funny name.*

Not a bad spread overall, especially for folks looking to pick up Persona or Trine 2 on the cheap. Even if you're not European, but have a European PSN account, you may want to look it up. 

*Can you guess which of these four I've never actually played?
