  • Would be nice to see Witcher DLC on sale like the US store has had. Been waiting ages for it to go on sale. Witcher 3 was my first PS4 experience.

  • Anyone who doesn’t already own The Talos Principle should snap it up for £8.99. I paid twice that and it was worth every penny

    • I kinda stopped buying / supporting indie games on PS4 since most of them are bound to hit the PS+ monthly line up.
      I have a feeling The Talos Principle is gonna be one of those indies in the future… Great game tho.

    • A £30 game, with a boxed retail edition, the 10th-highest rated non-rerelease on the PS4 according to Metacritic, on PS Plus? I admire your optimism

    • I almost got it last sale time when it was twice the price. My pile of shame mocking me stayed my hand. My pile of shame has grown further but at 12 dollars down from 55 my talos principles insist I get this one. I have been looking forward to this.

    • can i pass if it’s reeeeeally not my kind of thing? :)

    • I bought it last time (2 months ago which is a bit unfortunate that it is this much lower in price now, but that’s how it goes) and unfortunately I get sick by playing it (even in third person, which is weird). I only played it once and it wasn’t nearly as bad as the unfinished swan (I had to lie down for an hour and I almost puked by playing that one).

      I bought it because I loved the witness and the game seems a lot of fun, but I just can’t handle the bad framerate (I think). I did get sick from a few other games before (Antichamber on PC was the first time and the worst time I got this), but I do love these types of games.

      It looks totally worth it, but if you have a tendency to get sick by playing some first person games, there is a chance you get it from this one too (although there are some things you can enable in the settings to help you combat this, which is nice). Maybe I will revisit it as it looked a lot of fun.

    • I have the game on PC. It does sound really crazy, but its just a feeling that i have. Cant explain it..

    • I have it on PC as well, but I don’t really play a lot on PC (although I have a big Steam catalog :s).
      I did buy it on PS4 anyway, but because I knew I sometimes get feel sick when I play this type of games I should have played it first I guess.

      Ah well, it was not too bad and nothing I can do about it now :).

      I do agree I have the same thing where I have the feeling some games will come on PS+. Talos Principle is indeed a candidate for that.

  • Why does DriveClub Bikes Standalone get reduced and the Expansion version not? If you have DriveClub already you cannot purchase the standalone version.

    • That sucks. I guess it doesnt apply if you have the physical. I think i would prefer this one though. If my driveclub disc breaks or goes missing i can still play it. In fact i wish more dlc was stand alone. Still sucks that both versions arent on sale. Ahh the mysteries of life.

    • I agree.
      This is so ridiculous. I was waiting for a promotion of the expansion of Driveclub bikes. It makes no sense, the expansion be more expensive than the standalone version …

    • I’ve only got the ps plus version of driveclub and it still doesn’t let you buy bikes as standalone, really annoying as its a great price

    • Because a person with the base game is more likely to buy the DLC version regardless of a sale, whereas the standalone is to bring people into the franchise who are new.

      It’s fairly common with most DLC, its often cheaper just to buy a bundled version all over again which does indeed suck as a consumer, but probably makes complete sense to a developers accountants. It’s generally short sighted gain though, tends to teach people to wait, especially with publishers who do it all the time.

  • I was hoping for What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!?
    I had it on my PSP, and it was good.
    Then my PSP died and it was not good. Repurchasing with a discount for my Vita would be great!

  • Once again Dragon’s Lair for PS3 is on sale, and ONCE AGAIN, the PSP version is not there. What is the problem with the PSP version? Aren’t they from the same publisher, too, why not include the PSP version in there?

  • Another great sale, please keep doing these!!

  • Gravity rush remastered (last day to get it cheaper today) driveclub bikes and infamous second son + first light are all very tempting for me

  • I think is funny (though not ha ha funny) that Kings quest episode 1 is free to everyone now. I had to pay for ps plus to get that 1/5 of a game for free.

  • Can anybody recommend the Witcher 3? Been on the fence for a long while, not really into rpg’s but hear so many good things about it.

    • If you like a Western styled RPG you can lose 150+ hours to, where combat force you to think rather than spam attack buttons, where there are actually areas of the game that it’s best to avoid early doors as you’ll be under-powered, where the first DLC had a better story than most full retail games and has been subject to a host of free skins and small sidequests that other publishers would charge for… then get it.

      I loved it, lost a whole 6 weeks to it when it released and can’t wait for the final DLC.

    • Pretty much what this guy said, and it’s not just DLC that’s well written, there’s a quest line called “The Bloody Baron” which is better realised than many full games or films. Word of warning though, don’t buy if you’re easily offended buy strong language or adult themes because there’s plenty of both

    • Dark cruel fantasy world. I loved it.

    • Can anyone not recommend Witcher 3? I’d be impressed.

  • The disparity in the price of Rockstar games on PS3 and PS4 is pretty appalling.

    Manhunt & Bully
    PS3 – £1.99
    PS4 – £7.39

    GTA Trilogy
    PS3 – £7.99
    PS3 – £14.99

    As someone who already owns the PS3 copies of these games it’d be nice to at least have a better discount on the PS4 versions.

    • They’re still fairly recent and have been updated with trophies on the PS4 versions.

      They’re still treated as new releases so are priced differently despite being the same game.

    • Being updated with trophies shouldn’t equate to a 270% increase in price.

    • I was happy to buy Canis Canem Edit again when it got released on PS4 due to trophy support, clearer graphics and make use of the PS4 features like shareplay and videos and such and the conveinence of playing it on the console I haven’t put away. :P

    • This one is remastered and the PS3 version is not. It also has trophy support like mentioned. I normally would wait for at least a 50% off deal, but because it was one of my favorite games on PS2 (bought it secondhand in the final stages of the PS2 cycle and really loved that game), I bought it anyway.

      I do agree it is a big gap, but I think the game is worth it (although I think I paid the same price secondhand many many years ago).

    • I’ve read that one of the GTA games runs better (think it’s San Andreas) on US version vs EU one.

    • I have both GTA III and GTA VC and they have been patched a few weeks ago to give us the 60hz/30fps version instead of 50hz/25fps.

      I don’t know what Bully/Canis Canem Edit is as it downloads idiotically slow again.

    • That’s good to hear….seemingly was same issue as Dark Cloud. Canis Canem Edit isn’t as nice as the one on the 360 – graphic wise unfortunately (it looks really soft if that makes sense).

    • I guess that’s possible. It is weird because this should be a remaster and you would think they would at least crank up the resolution to the resolution it was on Xbox 360 (I did not play that one). Maybe it has to do with some post processing which makes it look more soft.

      It will look better then my original PS2 version for sure, so I will be ok with it I think.

      It sucks they put 50hz versions of all games on here. I bought quite a few of them, but did not play them yet. I hope they stop this and put the US version (60hz) on here as they look much better on HD TVs as far as I could see from the article/video I saw (DigitalFoundry).

    • Yea, half price on ps4 might convince me to get it a third time. They really should give a little extra discount to those who already own the ps3 version (eventhough it’s technically another version), 2 bucks seems like nothing now but a lot of us bought those games at full price too (was 10 or 15 back then for the original version on ps3). Those should’ve been the remastered versions in HD with trophy support etc at those prices. Not we get to purchase them again, again.. Oh well, won’t be the first or last time they drop the ball in their favour.. I’ll get the GTA trilogy again since it’s..well, GTA, so the triple support is warranted, but will wait for a slightly better price on Bully since I got it on ps3 not too long ago, but want trophies you know-_-

  • Whats this wander game for 70% off i wondered? It turns out its rating on the store is about 70% off as well. 2 stars!! Like most games on psn it is overatted with an even lower metacritic score of 1.5. Ouch

    • Supposedly it has had some updates but not fixed everything. Looking on forums and such seems there are trophy glitches and the online is region locked. There are 3 trophies which no one has earned such as spelunk, cartographer and the platinum.

      I’ve considered picking it up in the sale but according to psnprofiles only 460 people own the game (but those are just people who have trophies set to any one and not private accounts). That’s not really a good thing if the online is region locked especially as it’s suppose to be a MMO. I may pick it up any way though as a game that bad intrigues me.

    • I was tempted too but looking at the twitter page there has been no word from the devs on it at all this year, despite some trophies being glitched. Nobody has attained the platinum yet. From what I read, the first island seems nicely done, but the second is empty and glitchy. Coupling that with the lack of activity from the devs doesn’t paint a good picture.

      However, the people playing it generally seem to like it. It’s cheap too.. so worth a gamble…perhaps.

      I do find it hard to get behind a game that seems to be abandoned by it’s own devs though, so will steer clear of this.

  • @matdub69 – I know right? I was just logging in here to express my disgust that they wasted an IGC slot on King’s Quest Episode 1 only to make it free a few weeks later anyway (like every episodic does eventually game basically). I’m glad I’m not the only one who picked up on this.

  • Has tony hawk apologised for 5 yet?

  • Still waiting for a Drakengard 3 sister DLC sale, been waiting 2 years for it now and it’s the only thing left I want to buy to the PS3.

    • I could be wrong but I have never seen Nier dlc on sale and as its from the same devs that’s possibly why. I was given the US Drakengard 3 disc version as a present and I’ve never seen the dlc for it on sale on their blog. Now that I’ve pointed that out bet it turns up for sale on US store.

  • nothing for me this time. wouldve hoped for a discount on the sly trilogy or jak trilogy

  • Beautiful! Nice discounts on great games. Picking up Witcher 3 + Expansion pass. Played it on PC last summer but since I sold my PC I’ve been yearning to return to the world of Geralt!

  • Hm. I might get inFamous Second Son again. I used to have it on disc when I first got my PS4 but sold it after finishing as a hero and needing money for other games. I prefer digital anyways so £7.99 seems like a good price to replay the game through as a bad guy. :) I already bought the DLC stuffs so don’t need Legendary edition. :D

  • Oh look, Broforce is on sale… … … … Oh, speaking of it, did they already fixed the framerate?

  • Outlast’s price is great!!! :D No excuse not to get it now!

  • Why is Mortal Combat Arcade Collection are not avalable in Russian store while Rus Xbox Live got it, i’m just curious.

  • Has anyone played Hand of Fate? Looks interesting and is only 5€.

  • Welp, I feel like a total sucker for it but I’m going to get the GTA trilogy, again.. Still got the originals and repurchased them on ps3 but never got around to starting them. Want those trophies so I guess I’ll get them again, if any series is worth getting three times on all different generations, it’s GTA. The Trilogy deal pretty much convinced me, since it seems like I’m getting three for the price of two in its current pricing. Wouldn’t have gotten them at their seperate sales prices. Probably would’ve gotten Bully a third time too if it were a little cheaper.

  • Has the EU GTA:SA been patched to support 60hz/30fps yet? Read the others have but not sure about this one and it’s my fav of the three.

    • The 2 other ones are. I did not play SA on PS4 yet (I did not play the other 2 either), but SA did not get a patch which says it is 60hz/30fps now. The other did get those patches some weeks ago.

      Let’s hope SA will get the patch as well (my favorite is GTA 3 btw :)).

  • Can I ask why The Witcher 3 + Expansion Pass is £45 but separately they are £20 each?.

  • Star Wars Mega Bundle for PS3 was removed during may 4th sale I’m assuming because half the titles that are supposed to be in the bundle aren’t even on PS3. Now it’s back at full price and the same games in the bundle are still misiing?
    Or is this bundle just for people who own both PS3 & PS4.

  • FYI all there seems to be a few Vita JRPG price drops that aren’t advertised here – Persona 4 Golden and Dragon’s Crown for £6.99 apiece among them. P4G is unmissable for that price

  • Will there be discount for Ninja gaiden sigma 2 psvita edition ?

  • Always have an eye on The Evil Within when it comes on sale. Is the PS4 version worth a pick up?
    I know it’s had a few changes since launch so is it a better game now?

  • Can someone explain to me why anyone would want to spend £5 more for the Witcher Wild hunt + Expansion Pass?

    The base game is on sale at £20 and the Expansion Pass is on the store for £20, saving you a grand total of a £5, that’s Fish and bloody chips lads!

    Or Two pints ( + more maybe)

  • Re Kings Quest, it was obvious from a consumers view that the first episode would end up being free, so whoever put it on the PS+ free ‘game’ list must have been blatantly aware it would happen too. Poor form and disappointing, both from PS+ management and the developer.
