PSN PLAY summer is back!

1 min read


It seems even Sony’s forgotten that they rebranded the PSN to SEN, or the Sony Entertainment Network – as all their latest promotional material seems to have dropped that particular acronym. anyway, they’re happy to tell you that their PSN PLAY summer promotion (which is totally NOT a rip off Xbox Live’s summer of arcade, totally!) is back – with great games – and some great incentives to purchase them. Here’s the lineup.

The 2012 PlayStation Network PLAY lineup is:

  • July 31: The Expendables 2 (PS3) – Pre-order starts July 24 – $14.99 ($11.99 for PLUS members).
  • August 7: Sound Shapes  (PS3/PS Vita) – Pre-order starts July 31 – $14.99 ($11.99 for PLUS members).
  • August 14: Papo & Yo (PS3) – Pre-order starts August 7 -$14.99 ($11.99 for PLUS members).
  • August 21: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (PS3) – Pre-order starts August 14 – $14.99 ($11.99 for PLUS members).

These are US dates – and we don’t have EU (or ZA) pricing or availability yet.

Sony will add money to your PSN wallet depending on how many of the titles you end up purchasing.

  • Buy any (all?) 4 PSN PLAY games to get $10
  • Buy any 3 PSN PLAY games to get $6
  • Buy any 2 PSN PLAY games to get $3

And to get you even more excited, here’;s a little promotional video. I’m totally in for Sound Shapes and Papa & Yo. Not so much for the manshooty other games.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
