MAYBE Mortal Kombat Collection or Bloodrayne… already have and beat Rochard, nothing else interest me though. but good promotion anyway!

Yep me too Nader-Abudiix, was waiting for RE4 HD to come down like Crysis did, £15.99 for this game is a joke! And i’m dying to play it again before Revelations.

+ morrislevy on January 16th, 2012 at 9:17 am said:

These choices are awful. The only good one I see is “Sideways” which is an Indie title. Not interested in many, and not worth PS+, which I woefully paid for by accident recently.


15

+ Scavengre on January 16th, 2012 at 9:18 am said:

Hmm although I am not particularly interested in any of these titles the PS+ pricing is not 50%. Its actually slightly more, so if you have PS+ enjoy!

Nice, you guys should have added infamous festival of blood

+ ReptileHand on January 16th, 2012 at 9:19 am said:

Are you kidding me? I bought Dungeon Defenders full price on here (got it for $3.74 on PC). I would’ve bought it for $7! Oh well at least I supported the Developers :) Never pay full price for a 3rd Party game folks. It’ll just go down in price soon. Like retail games. Need for Speed is $40 , Dead Island is $40 all these games had price drops within mere months of being out.

Anyways I was looking forward to this sale, oh well, on that note!

BUY DUNGEON DEFENDERS! Totally worth the $15 price tag! And to get it for half off? Even better!

maybe the Arkade Kollection, maybe

Sweet I have been waiting for a price drop on PJ SideScroller!


26

+ FireDragonMonkey on January 16th, 2012 at 9:30 am said:

Definitely better than last years, thanks for the improvement in title selection! Unfortunately for those who do not have PSN+ the deals aren’t as good, but they are still good. I guess I’ve got to go out and buy myself some more credit since there are a few games on there that are priced just too tempting to pass up


27

+ coperoYpeleador on January 16th, 2012 at 9:38 am said:

Rocketbirds demo was interesting, I’ll think about getting it, and SideScroller too.


28

+ Elvick_ on January 16th, 2012 at 9:39 am said:

I highly recommend; PixelJunk Shooter, Dungeon Defenders, BloodRayne: Betrayal, and Okabu

I’m actually rather disappointed…. I thought it was going to be 12 games for $12. ;-)

Any word on when they will fix the massive amounts of bugs and glitches in Dungeon Defenders?


32

+ ONDX on January 16th, 2012 at 9:45 am said:

I’ll probably get Rochard now…and 3rd Strike…even though I already own it for my PS2…


33

+ Silvercube on January 16th, 2012 at 9:47 am said:

Nothing of interest for me here.

How about letting people vote on what games they’d like to see on sale next time?

Thanks.

…this is it?… Let’s make a “real” announcement and say when the PS2 emulator will be released. The tech is there, otherwise PS would not be able to release PS2 games on the store. It’s kinda sad that you would want people to pay twice for a game that was released almost ten years ago.

I loved the Rochard demo. Now to purchase the whole thing… on sale. Nice.

+ geist226 on January 16th, 2012 at 9:51 am said:

I hope this is a successful sale for PSN, but I have zero interest. There’s a reason I didn’t buy any of these the first time around, and price wasn’t it.

Is Payday the Heist worth the discount anyone? Some people were saying it was a good game while others were saying it was just mediocre.

These deals are pretty good but damn I feel like its always these same games that Sony has in its promos.


46

+ Phillyblunz on January 16th, 2012 at 10:05 am said:

Payday is a pretty good game for $20.

For $10 it is an amazing game IMHO.

Imagine L4D had a baby with the movie Heat = Payday.

Only a few missions but the online is where its at, the difficulty and leveling keep the replay value nice and high as well.

That was my best game purchase last year no question, and I paid full price!

Totally worth it if you enjoy online coop and killing Po Po.

+ BeerManMike on January 16th, 2012 at 10:07 am said:

I thought it was $12 for all 12 games. Glad I stay away from the PSN, what a rip off.

I also think they give the same deals on the same games, but I might just end up buying one or two. Thank you Playstation.
