In one of our earlier articles we reported that various SEGA games are currently being discounted during Sony’s Easter Sales on the EU PlayStation Store. Now, the US PlayStation Store is getting a range of discounts of its own. Like in the EU sales, these include Yakuza 5 and the Project DIVA F games (although unlike in the EU, Project Diva f on the PS Vita isn’t being discounted).
The annual Easter Sale on the EU PlayStation Store is underway, and as you may expect the list of discounts includes some SEGA and Atlus games. As usual, we compiled them in the list below, with prices both in Euro and British Pound added for your convenience. As you can see, it’s a good occasion to complete your collection of Project DIVA F, Yakuza or Persona 4 games! The Easter Sales run until April 6th, and Sony have announced that they will be adding more games to the list next week.
UPDATE: Sony are apparently sending out e-mails to people with a EU PlayStation Network account containing a unique code (one time use only) that grants an additional 10% discount to your entire PS Store cart. While it seems to be intended as an incentive to buy games from the January Sales, the description suggests it applies to any items in your cart (which the exception of pre-orders, subscriptions, PlayStation Now rentals and video on demand). However, it seems not everyone with a EU PSN account has received an e-mail with a code at this point, and it’s not clear if more e-mails are being sent out. There’s not a lot of time to use the code, as it expires this Sunday, January 17th at 23:59 GMT.
Earlier on we reported on Sony’s January Sales for the EU PlayStation store, which included two Persona games from Atlus. Recently, Sony have added another batch of games to these sales, and unlike the first batch they now include a few SEGA games! Until January 22, both the PS3 version of Project DIVA F and Project DIVA F 2nd are being sold at a 50% discount (and an additional 10% for PlayStation Plus subscribers), and the same goes for TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT on PS4. Read on to find a list with the details!
|Game||Publisher||Platform||Original Price||Discount||Offer Price||PS Plus Price|
|Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F||SEGA||PS3||£36.99/€44,99||50%||£18.99/€23,99||£17.09/€21,59|
|Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd||SEGA||PS3||£39.99/€49,99||50%||£19.99/€24,99||£17.99/€22,49|
|TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT||SEGA||PS4||£9.99/€12,99||50%||£5.35/€6,49||£4.82/€5,84|
We talked about the concept of medleys in Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X in our previous articles, and today SEGA have released a video of the game’s first medley titled “Primary Colors”. The medley features the following songs from the OSTER Project: “Koisuru VOC@LOID”, “Dreaming Leaf -Yume Miru Kotonoha-“, “Moody Waltz” and “Miracle Paint”. Take a look at the video after the break!
EU gamers felt left out when Sony had a “Golden Week” sale on the US PlayStation Store earlier this year, but Sony has now announced a similar sales initiative named “Big in Japan” for the EU PlayStation Store, which sees a plethora of Japanese games sold at a discounted price for the PS3, PS Vita and PSP. We made a list of all the Atlus and Sega games featured in the sales, together with their new price. Not listed below but perhaps worth noting is that many of the Hyperdimension Neptunia games, a franchise which will receive a crossover game with the SeHa Girls, have been discounted as well. The sales ends on July 7th.
Sony is celebrating Japan’s national holiday week with a “Golden Week” sale on the US PlayStation store. A ton of Sega and Atlus games are on sale right now, and we compiled the list of their discounted games below (with Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory included as well, given how it’s getting a crossover game with the SeHa Girls). As usual, PlayStation Plus members receive an additional discount. The discounts will be available until 5/05/2015. My thanks go to Kuronoa for helping me compile this list!
The January Sales on the EU PlayStation Store, running until January 21, include three Sega PS3 games: Project DIVA F, Bayonetta and Vanquish. If you haven’t played these games yet, you can now get them at a very favorable price! Check the list below for more details:
|Game||Old Price||New Price||PS Plus Price|
|Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F (PS3)||€44.99||€26.99||€24.29|
|Bayonetta (PS3)||€14.99||€3.99||No additional discount|
|Vanquish (PS3)||€14.99||€3.99||No additional discount|
Currently the European Playstation Store has Project Diva F on the PS3 and Project Diva f on the PS Vita discounted as part of their weekly sales, but Sony has now announced that both games will also be getting a discount in North America during a Flash Sale. However, this sale is only for this weekend (ending October 20th!)
A couple of other Sega games are also discounted for this US PSN Flash Sale, such as the original Golden Axe (not listed on the blog, but this game is on the store) and Bayonetta. While this discounted Bayonetta offering is not necessary for anyone who is looking to buy the sequel in the US (where the original game is included for free), those who don’t have a Wii U and have yet to play Bayonetta can now get the game at a discounted price. And while not a Sega game, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is included in the Flash Sale as well. The game features parodies and references to Sega.
You can find the new prices below, and PS Plus members gain additional 10% off:
|Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA f (PS Vita)||$11.99|
|Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F (PS3)||$19.99|
|Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory||$7.49|
Sony has revealed a new batch of discounted games for their “Deals of the Week”, and it includes one of the Sega games that, as far as I’m aware, has not received any other discounts since its release. The game in question is Project Diva F, which happens to be one of the few Japanese Sega games that have been localized in recent years. It’s good to see the game get a discount, given how long it’s been available. It’s worth noting that the game has only been released digitally in Europe, so that means anyone that wanted to acquire the EU version had to buy it at full price from the PS Store. This discount means more people will get to play the game and hopefully convince them to buy the upcoming sequel Project Diva F 2nd. Below you’ll find the new prices for both the PS Vita and PS3 versions of the game. Note that the sales end on the 21st of October, so you only have one week to buy the game at the discounted price.
|Game||GBP||EUR||AUD||Additional 10% PS Plus discount|
|Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA f (PS Vita)||£14.99||€17.99||$26.95||10% (€16.95)|
|Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F (PS3)||£21.99||€26.99||$40.95||10% (€24.29)|
Earlier this week, Sega released Project Diva f in Europe, one week after the launch in the US. Before the launch, the price tag of the game shown on the official website seemed unreasonably high compared to the price of the US version (€36,99, or $51), but Sega changed the price on the launch day to a more reasonable €29,99. While that’s still more expensive than the US version, it seems to be in line with the pricing applied to most other European PS Vita games. The DLC on the other hand gets a more favorable conversion. Here are the prices for all Project Diva f related content on PSN as listed on the official EU PSN blog:
