  • Killzone is $39.99 on Amazon. Just so you guys know.
  • Nice surprise!
  • That's not 50% off for AC4. 50% off would be $29.99. Just sayin'.
  • @1 Also at Best Buy (Amazon actually matched BB's price) Umm...where's the sale? Sony's PS Store team needs to start checking out retail prices before launching these flash sales. They seem to always pick games that were recently or currently on sale at retail and have the digital copy as higher price. You can keep this joke of a sale, Sony.

  • @ #4 While it may be true that the physical version of these games are on sale or have been on sale recently, you can't knock Sony for offering the sales digitally themselves. They're basically knocking a third of the price off of new games very early after launch. Of course I would go for the retail version if I was going to make the purchase, but that doesn't make the sale bad. If anything, it's just another example of how much better the PSN is vs. Xbox Live. You think Microsoft would have a sale like this early on? Not a chance. In three years they'll be offering these same games at this price. Maybe.
  • "You can get 50 per cent off the likes of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (PS3), Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition (PS3, PS4, PSVita) and Killzone Shadow Fall (PS4)" Those three games are not 50% off.
  • @6: Actually, no. That does make this sale bad. These prices are not good deals on these games, thus the sale is bad. The point of this sale is to try and snag impulse buyers who see "SALE ENDS FRIDAY" and buy it instantly without checking to see if it's actually a good deal first because they think "OH SHIT SALE ENDS FRIDAY BETTER BUY IT NOW NOW NOW". So yeah, I think I can knock Sony for this sham of a sale. It's not designed to give people good deals, it's designed to take advantage of people who don't think. Luckily we have people like 1 and 4 looking out for actual good deals (while only $2 less, it's still cheaper, and going to Amazon or Best Buy nets you a vastly superior physical copy instead of a crap digital copy; Amazon and Best Buy have an infinitely better deal on Killzone Shadow Fall than Sony does). Also it's funny you mention Xbox Live, because this is the quality (or lack thereof) of their sales all the time.
  • I'm gonna eat your face. You buy now or go!
  • Two games are 50% off: Super Motherload & Contrast (already got free). I got excited for a minute.
  • Well this sucks...eeehhhh I'll be keeping my physical Knack, thanks...
  • I'll get Killzone and Knack when there PS+ Free games. Around E3 knack will be free not sure how long until killzone though.
  • @8 - well said. Digital sales are rarely good deals, although the 14 for 14 sale was an exception. I actually returned my physical copy of Pupeteer in favour of the $7 digital version. But how often does that happen? I was excited about this til I saw the "deals". At least it saves me some money and stops my backlog from increasing. One more thing, by getting the game retail, almost every store has at least a 30 day price guarantee. So if the copy of the game you just bought goes on sale, they'll issue a refund for the difference. I still find it disingenuous (if not corrupt) to see digital 'sales' which are then repeated or improved within a few weeks. Until I see Sony step up and refund the difference, I will not be routinely buying digital games that are also available through regular retail channels.
  • Oh.
  • Only games whar are 50% off are $14.99 games anyway.
  • "Oh better buying all these games in this amazing January Deals while they are on sale before friday! Said no one ever.
  • You forgot the "Up to" before the 50% part. Nothing here is a good deal.
  • Never buying Assassin Creed at launch again
  • @18 i learned that after revelations.. AC4 is 29.99 at gamestop brand new right now. AC3 bundle may be worth it however for 25 bucks with all dlc as part of the AC sale just so you guys know..
  • Getting Ac4 and killzone for sure!
  • Was hoping for a slash on the price of the season pass for AC4 and KZ:Shadow Fall
  • very weak deals for digital... best buy b2g1+gcu unlocked this week ftw..
  • @3, It doesn't say every game gets 50% off, it says the sales are UP TO 50% off... maybe try reading again...
  • No EU flash sale?
