PS4 - The Last of Us Remastered

Share Your Cyber Monday Finds on Twitter!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Dec 01, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

“Cyber Monday.” Honestly, it sounds made up. But the first workday following Thanksgiving (read: today) the deals for online shoppers are very real. And since you’re already on the internet right now, that’s half the battle down.

So in the vein of our Black Friday deals post (thanks to everyone who chipped in with their tips, btw), today we’ll be sharing the best PlayStation deals we can find… but in a distinctly, um, “cyber-y” way. (Seriously though, I don’t wanna get going on a rant here, but who still uses the word “cyber”? OK, deep breaths.)

PlayStation.Blog on Twitter

Since the redesign of the Blog, you can find our Twitter feed scrolling the top of the page. For those not intimately familiar with Twitter, it allows us to get a sentence or two of info to you without a full blog post. You can start following us here. For those that *are* intimately familiar with Twitter, feel free to share the best PlayStation deals you find by including the “#psbdeals” hashtag in your tweets. We’ll retweet the best deals you send in, on the PlayStation.Blog twitter stream. Also, we’ll continue using that tag to share deals even after today, so, by all means, keep using it throughout the holiday season and beyond.

Or, as always, share your finest finds with the readers in the comment section. Happy hunting!

#10 – What does World AIDs Day have to do with Cyber Monday? Are you saying the whole world has to shut down and stop making money because it’s World AIDs Day? That makes no sense.

Guitar Hero World Tour – Guitar Kit – $69.99 on Amazon is for the PS3 version too even though the 360 version was the only one I saw listed…I decided to pick one up.

@ #10 I work IT for AFH (Aids foundation Houston) 2 days a week and while it is great to spread awareness and education, most individuals afflicted with the HIV virus would prefer not to be treated differently. Treating someone special when they do not want it can be just as bad as treating them like an outcast.

I’m tempted to get those Buzzers for $10 from Best Buy, but I’d rather get wireless ones for Buzz! Quiz TV. I was hoping we’d hear from Relentless about those hitting retail this year.

For any Europeans here play.com has bioshock for 25 (which is how much it should cost). Today only deal.

+ joostin on December 1st, 2008 at 11:34 am said:

@25 Here is your news,

Tekken 6 comes after Tekken 5…
FF13 has gone multiplatform, but Versus is exclusive to PS3..Comes out next year…
Home is growing and getting better all the time…

Who needs deals? Too many games to play already! R2, LBP, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, CoD: WaW (Skipped this one cause of KZ2 and R2)…

+ BZKlint on December 1st, 2008 at 1:50 pm said:

@ oldricksf

Wow. I hope that’s sarcasm. You can’t seriously expect to get a beta code by just DEMANDING one and then threaten your loyalty. That’s just ridiculous. Just wait for the full release.


35

+ BZKlint on December 1st, 2008 at 1:55 pm said:

Anyways, I don’t know how to work this twitter stuff, but at newegg.com all PS3 games are under $60 ranging from $10 to $57 (except collectors editions) and all include free shipping. Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2082820545&page=15&bop=And&Order=BESTMATCH

@33
What a joke lol…sign up for the forums and get one like a normal person or wait a few weeks since it has been announced the Open beta hits this month…you should get a 360 or 3 of them for when it burns out on you.
