(JP) 5pb HUGE STEINS;GATE 5TH ANNIVERSARY SALE 8/13/2014 - 8/27/2014

Recommended Posts

In honor of Steins;Gate's 5th anniversary, 5pb is having a massive sale on all their titles across a variety of platforms. The sale will last from 8/13/2014 - 8/27/2014. This is an extremely rare event, because 5pb rarely discounts their games. Among those are Chaos;Head, Steins;Gate, Memories Off, and Corpse Party. A full list of titles is here.

I'm not entirely sure if this extends to physical releases since the sale includes PS3, Xbox 360, PSP, and Vita. On iOS and Android, however, these games are available on the Apple Store and Google Play worldwide.

 

Of course, all these titles are Japanese language only. Still, Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate can be patched into English on iOS and Android assuming that you have the right software. This blog contains the patches and files needed.

On a side note, Corpse Party has been confirmed for a release on iOS, in English, for 8/14/2014 on the App Store. This game has been available on iOS for quite some time, but it was only in Japanese. It's apparently a direct port of XEED's translation on PSP, so I expect it to have full voice acting as well as everything else originally featured.

It's going to cost $22, though whether or not the sale will extend to it is unknown. Still, it's a great way for people like me who don't own PSPs to finally experience the game.

 

So will you be taking advantage of 5pb's sale? Sound off below!

I might buy Chaos;Head or Steins;Gate, since I've heard that they're good, but only if I can get them for PC.  I don't like using handheld devices when I can just use my computer for the same things.

 

Yes, they're very good. S;G is my favorite VN of all time and C;H had a very addicting plot. Still, with iOS and Android you get the benefit of portability. But if you want them for PC, Chaos;Head is available on Fuwanovel.

S;G is also on Fuwanovel, but please support JAST through buying it officially. You can get it here.

One more thing, play C;H first. Although they're separate stories, there are several references that tie the two games together. Playing C;H first will allow you to appreciate them more. : )

Is Japanese PSN still rejects foreign credit cards? Are you guys purchasing using digital codes?

I have about ¥400 left in wallet after purchasing STEINS;GATE and wander now what options I have.  :unsure:

 

You could purchase a prepaid card through PlayAsia for JPY credit and use that?

Yes, you cannot use a foreign credit card to add funds to your account. I just buy PSN codes off of ebay.

u can buy english patched steins;gate for iOS?

 

Unfortunately, S;G on all the App Stores is in Japanese only. If you're jailbroken, you can download our patch here.

However, 5pb mobile claimed on Twitter that they're going to release it in English on the App Store at one point.

So take that for what you will.
