SEGA has sliced the prices of some of their old PSP games on PSN permanently. Here’s a list of the games with their original and slashed prices:

Alien Syndrome: $9.99………$4.99
Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars$9.99………$4.99
Crush: $9.99………$6.99
Sonic Rivals$9.99………$6.99

These price cuts do not apply to Europe (at least not yet). Because these games are being sold on PSN they can also be played on the Playstation Vita.

It’s All That White Water Rafting: SOA Community Event Video

As you can see by this picture, I had a camera at the 2010 SEGA of America Community Event. I’ve put together a video that’s exclusive to The Sonic Stadium’s podcast, The Sonic Show. If you want to go see it, head on over there.  WATCH us suck at Valkyria Chronicles. SEE Ken Balough meet his doppleganger, Ben Kalough.  LISTEN as we critique Sonic 4: Episode 1 at the feedback session.  OBSERVE as nobody loses their cool at the meeting, like you all assumed like d-bags.

It was a great time.  Watch the video here.
