PS4 and PS3 Summer Games Promotion Offers Preorder Discounts and Up to $10 PSN Credit

CounterSpy, Rogue Legacy, The Swapper, and Hohokum are Cross-Buy across all three Sony platforms, and you'll get $10 on PlayStation Network if you buy all four.

Every summer, four downloadable games are featured as part of Sony's PlayStation Play program. Today, Sony announced this year's lineup: CounterSpy, Hohokum, The Swapper, and Rogue Legacy. If you buy more than one of them, you'll get credit for use on the PlayStation Store.

This year, all four games will launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. But this doesn't mean each version is sold separately. The games will also all feature Cross-Buy across the three platforms, meaning a purchase on any system will net you the other versions at no additional cost.

The draw of the PS Play program, of course, is the money you get when you buy at least two of the games. Buy two of the titles and you'll get $3 on the PS Store. Buy three, and you'll receive $6. Purchase all four games and you'll get $10. If you choose to buy more than one, credit earned from this promotion will be sent no later than early September.

Additionally, if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber, the games are discounted 20 percent if you preorder them. The prices of the games are:

  • Rogue Legacy -- $16.99 ($13.59 preordered with a Plus subscription)
  • The Swapper -- $19.99 ($15.99 preordered with Plus)
  • Hohokum -- $14.99 ($11.99 preordered with Plus)
  • CounterSpy -- $14.99 ($11.99 preordered with Plus)

Rogue Legacy launches on July 29, The Swapper on August 5, Hohokum on August 12, and CounterSpy on August 18. Rogue Legacy and the Swapper are already available on PC. While you wait for their PlayStation releases, you can check out our Rogue Legacy review and our Swapper review.

So the PS4's, the so-called "the most powerful console" is only good for indie games.

Already have Rogue Legacy on Steam, so I'll pass.

I'll wait until Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty comes out over here.

Always good to see deals and sales on the console digital stores. They're inching their way toward more consumer-friendly shops like Steam and GOG.

Or you could not buy any of them and save $54.

Hahahhahahahhahahahha!! I am laughing my ass off right now...

What is going on this comment section is the so called Console War? Really?

All I see is a buch of people trying to say how their console is the best, but they have no real arguments lol.

Please, people who do this kind of comment, get out of the internet and throw your console on the trash. You are not a real gamer.

@Simulator_Shock wouldn't it be around $44 with plus? well really around $34 with the cash back, if you can't see that then something is wrong with you.

@guydude3412 Good news, all 4 games are Cross-Buy so you will get the Vita, PS3 and PS4 versions for one price.  So yes, go ahead and just preorder them since they will work on the Vita too.

@mbradk You hear it, everyone! Mbradk just dictated what a real gamer is! let's all follow his irrefutable self-entitlement and do what he said.

Listen kid, go lecture somewhere else. We have enough spam here with all the system fanboys for you to come and give them yet another excuse to talk BS.

@mbradk  How did Watch Dogs run on your PC?  Oh wait, Watch Dogs was practically unplayable on PC for many people, hmm.... PC master race wins again, right?

@kane6911 So if the PS4 is a brick then that would make the X1 a pile of sh*t?  Ok, got it, I am on board with your logic now.

sonyonly4

@kane6911 Remind me again what games are coming to Xbox Done this summer? Oddworld tomorrow then The Last of Us next week then the definitive version of PVZ (Not that 900p version you Got LOL) and off course not to mention Diablo 3 with exclusive PS Content and confirmed 1080p 60 fps another thing the Xbox Done can barely do........  I think you are confused because all I see is games coming my way and tumbleweed on the Xbox Done O but you do get the Destiny Beta Finally after we all played it last month in the Alpha and still got the Beta before you even tried it LOL.

guydude3412
guydude3412

I mean, can I pre-order it from the vita because it is my only playstation

kane6911
kane6911

@CrusaderForever @kane6911 until you stop playing beta's and alpha, because other than that you all have nothing to play. oh wait the last of us remaster, that was a ps3 game rebooted how fun.

@sonyonly4  Sorry keep eating tumbleweed, since most of these games are forget-me-all. Once played, then forgotten.

PVZ = PC is the DEFINITIVE version. Keep eating tumbleweed there. 

Last of Us = really? another portion of tumbleweed

Diablo 3 = BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH, the PC version is WAAAAAY superior. To that sh*t collector, you call a console. 

As for DESTINED to be a bore. Well that's what it will be a bore. PS Done 4. 

But enjoy the tumbleweed and having mud kicked in your face. Now this is a LAWLZ 

http://www.gamepur.com/news/15255-sony-lied-again-battlefield-hardline-beta-runs-900p-ps4-unable-sustain-60-f.html 

900p LAWLZ!.

@sonyonly4 @kane6911 So every frame you count every single pixel on the screen? Because that is really the only way you can notice the difference between 900p and 1080p.

@sonyonly4 @kane6911 Remind me again how Sony fanboys are still relevant?  You are responding to a comment the didn't even mention Xbox.  Feeling a bit threatened are we?  By the way, the console war is over.  Both camps have united against PC gaming.  Get with the program please.

kane6911
kane6911

@sonyonly4 @kane6911 you still have made no point at all. it's a brick and a dust collector at this point. and the 1080 things old sony hasn't hit that 100% of the time as well. as far as beta's and alpha's go you are doing the job of a person who get's paid for that and receiving no payment at all just a hamster on a wheel. destiny is a game that i have no real interest in so have fun. by the way the x1 has the better games this years and next year with better exclusive.

@guydude3412 probably yeah, try it XD I have a vita too but I am not interested in any of those.

@kane6911 @CrusaderForever And what is the Halo Collection? Hypocrite Go back to your weak Tebo Box Done.

LOL Talking about bricks? Really Your console is HUGE and still need a Power brick XD well It kind off is like Life support really isn't it for a almost Dead console.

sonyonly4
sonyonly4

@calamityo O dear an EA game isn't 1080p on the PS4? I wonder why that could be........Cough Microsoft d*ckriders Cough.

PC is irrelevant LOL and you seriously have the nerve to call the Last of Us Tumbleweed? HAHAHAHA Yeah keep dreaming PC Nubian its got more awards then every game in your lame PC Library Combined.

Modding Half life 2 year after year while waiting for the big games everyone played over a year ago (GTA 5 and Red Dead) or playing one off the best games ever made in the best quality with FRIENDS........boy that is a toughy, Guess I won't be joining you playing Team Fatress 2 with a bunch off dutch players anytime soon since I have the best Console on the market plus REAL people to play with.

PC Gamers keep away from our articles seriously you may have the Hardware but you don't have a relevant community I also have a Wii U and I would much rather play that online then have to deal with PC Nubian like you speaking all high and mighty when all you really have is tired Valve games,Dude bro shooters in slighty higher quality and a whole bunch of lame MMOs nobody cares exist apart from Nubians.

sonyonly4

@Bazongaman502 @sonyonly4 @kane6911 LOL Nope ,see why I feel it is my duty to bring facts to the table? You can notice the difference pretty much in a heart beat, why do you think PC Gamers game on 22" monitors in 4K if Microsofts statement was true? Microsofts statement was just typical Damage Control because the console is weak and people have found that out in less then a year hence why the lackluster sales.

@SingletreeAve @sonyonly4 @kane6911 Not really, it isn't hard to spot an Xtot they have been bitter little cry babies ever since the Xbox Done was announced so when I see one just like a rabid dog it need to be put down.

sonyonly4
sonyonly4

@kane6911 @sonyonly4 Better Exclusives? Last time I checked the Xbox Done only has two (Look up the definition of "Exclusive" because when 90% off your so called "Exclusives" can be played on a different Platform you clearly don't understand what the word means) and Ryse is dog sh*t and Forza will be like comparing Atari games to PS 1 when Driveclub drops.

The 1080p thing is old is it? it is funny how the Xtots seem to always bring up all these fairy tales and rumors about Xbox Done getting more powerful, so old it stays on your mind 24/7?

Looked it up and you can't. If you only have a vita, you are basically not eligible

Don't call others hypocrites, when you, yourself are one. 

Stay on your PS done 4. And the Wee Wee. Two dead consoles XDDDD.

@sonyonly4

SO, after re-reading your argument. I decided to delete my original response to you. Because your statement is that damn pitiful. But still, if you want me to run rings around your argument, it's no toughy at all.

@PS4andXoneGamer @kane6911 @sonyonly4 i know right after all i look into buying a ps4 until everyone at the game store who owned both said don't do it. it's just a machine that plays games and nothing else. but the games on it are not really good. they even gave me the line up sheet.  i don't play games that often because unlike a lot people i work. but why invest in a machine that is only made for thing plus after all the parts you you have to buy for it will be more expensive in the long run than other console that does more out of the box.  by diablo sucks not a game that i would let my dog buy or play. 

CrusaderForever
CrusaderForever

@kane6911 @PS4andXoneGamer @sonyonly4 The line up sheet must have looked awesome too!  Not only does the PS4 have the best multiplats it also has more exclusives - The Last of Us Remastered, Little Big Planet 3, Natural Doctrine, Helldivers, Driveclub, CounterSpy and Hohokum.  Not to mention the X1 is losing Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare as an exclusive and the PS4 version will be 1080p and 60FPS compared to the X1 900p and 60FPS.  Also, before you bring up that tired old argument about the Last of Us being a retread, the X1 has Halo MCC and Phantom Dust on their roster for the X1.  Both are remasters so yet again your arguments are invalid.

guydude3412
guydude3412

It is. They advertise you can use than on all their consoles, but the offer is only for two of them :(

@guydude3412 try going to the playstation store website maybe you can preorder on there 

guydude3412
guydude3412

It said you can only order from ps3 or ps4. Trust me, I would. This is just a big middle finger to vita only owners

CaptnBrainslide
CaptnBrainslide

@guydude3412 Then get the PS3 or PS4 version if that's what's marked down, and you'll get the Vita version free automatically.  That's how it works, don't complain about an (unfortunate for people with a Vita startpoint) omission when the solution is so easy. 

guydude3412
guydude3412

I don't have a ps3 or ps4. That is the problem

CaptnBrainslide
CaptnBrainslide

@guydude3412 You don't need a PS3 or PS4.  If you can get on Gamespot with whatever PC or device, you can get on the web store for Sony, and from the web store you can get the PS3 or PS4 version, and if you get that you automatically get the Vita one added to your account (with delays on preorders but otherwise it's available immediately).  Then get on your Vita and download it.
The web store is at store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com if you don't know.
