Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Animated Short Viewable in Full, Game Won’t Receive a PSN Discount

The Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time demo will be downloadable for everyone starting on January 29th, one week ahead of the February 5th release date on PS3 and PS Vita (retail and PSN), but before you play the game, you can watch an animated short.

If you want to download these shorts from the PlayStation Network, they are expected to be available a week or two after the game launches.

It was also revealed that, unlike Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch this past Tuesday, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time won’t be receiving a PSN discount, and will stick to the retail price of $29.99 on PS Vita and $39.99 on PS3. Since the PlayStation 3 version also includes a Vita version for free thanks to Cross Buy though, paying full price isn’t all that bad.

What did you think of the short? Will you be getting Sly Cooper in stores or on the PSN? Let us know in the comments below.
