Sony Adds More Titles to PlayStation Store Retro Games PSN Sale

84w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced the addition of more titles to their PS Store Retro Games PSN sale today!

To quote: Hello everybody. I hope you are all enjoying our current Retro Sale.

Just a quick update - I have been listening to all your comments and have got some more deals for you! See below for the full list of additions.

Now you will notice that Resident Evil 2 is on the list but be warned, this DOES NOT currently work on the PS Vita. We are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it - hopefully it will work on the PS Vita soon but I don't have an ETA yet.

Once the game has been fixed you will be able to re-download the game for PS Vita, but for now you can only purchase it through your PS3. Sorry to disappoint with this but I will see if we can replicate the offer once it is working for PS Vita - though I can't make any promises.

I recommend buying it now on the PS3 (if you have one) for the future to avoid disappoint on missing this sale opportunity.

These discounts will start on Wednesday 12th September once the weekly store update has happened. All offers will end on 19th September....

To quote: Ahoy there, warriors of the seas! Luffy and the Strawhats are on their way to kick some serious pirate butt on 21st September in One Piece: Pirate Warriors!

Unfamiliar with the title? It's an exhilarating action game that lets you play with the whole Strawhat crew, as well as extra guests, and faithfully experience the grand One Piece story.

It's also the first game based on the One Piece anime series to be released on PlayStation 3.

The huge story mode can be enjoyed solo or you can play co-op with a friend using the PlayStation Network. You'll battle your way through hordes of marines and pirates and fight mighty bosses pulled straight from the anime series.

When not battling, you'll visit beautiful and exotic islands looking for 100 special coins to power up your stats and get new awesome and effective abilities.

Get a taste of One Piece: Pirate Warriors with this new video showing the confrontation between Zoro and Mihawk. The action takes place in Baratie and shows a fight between the two best swordsmen from the One Piece universe.
