Was hoping the Move racing wheel would be on sale. It is not…

Though I’m interested in maybe a new bluetooth headset and maybe even a backup controller. Other than that, I have everything here already. Damn you sony… you’ve tricked me into buying everything with sony on the case -_-


+ WilburMonkey on December 14th, 2012 at 9:08 am said:

Would love to see 60% of Vita memory cards! Some good deals here, though.


+ djml9 on December 14th, 2012 at 9:13 am said:

Woah! Double take. is that 15 buks for sharpshooter correct? ive been wanting one for kz3 (and since im getting bioshock infinite). id get that in a hertbeat if its correct.


+ kivi95 on December 14th, 2012 at 9:15 am said:

You should have had a sale on the EXPENSIVE vita memory cards aswell…


+ cool_trainer on December 14th, 2012 at 9:17 am said:

Dat HDMI cable, what a steal.


+ PsychoticUsagi on December 14th, 2012 at 9:18 am said:

Gah, I was hoping the Pulse Headset would go on sale for like $100. Especially considering it’s always like around $125 on Amazon anyway. I managed to get my Wireless Stereo Headset for $75 during Black Friday sales last year, they didn’t have anything like that for the Pulse one this year though. =/


+ Dubloon7 on December 14th, 2012 at 9:22 am said:

? What’s at 60%? All of these items are STILL OVERPRICED. No thanks, i’ll just keep buying from pawn shops and third-party knock-offs which work just as perfect as PS junk.

Actually the sale prices start on the 16th not today


+ smokinjoe1989 on December 14th, 2012 at 9:42 am said:

will definitely pick up an extra controller but it would be nice to see those vita memory cards discounted as well.(ps plus games filled it up nice and fat) great deals though


+ Ryumoau on December 14th, 2012 at 9:48 am said:

Why are Dual Stick controllers still as expensive as games are? $19.99 should be the standard price by now. Its been 6 years.

And $19.99 for HDMI cable? lol. There are great ones for $7.99 on Amazon.


+ Ryumoau on December 14th, 2012 at 9:54 am said:

@3 agreed. Still no Vita memory card sales. :/


+ StealthReborn-- on December 14th, 2012 at 9:57 am said:

Do these deals apply to Canada as well? I was thinking of picking up another PS3 controller.

Thanks! =)


+ Zezzler on December 14th, 2012 at 10:01 am said:

Might have to pick myself up one of those Media remotes. 20 bucks doesn’t seem half bad.


+ TwinDad on December 14th, 2012 at 10:02 am said:

Only thing I’m interested in is the controller charger.

I would purchase a Vita memory card if they are 50% off (or more). Until then I’ll wait for a Chinese ripoff or converter, but I doubt those will come as the sales figures of your hand held makes even the hacker stay away from the system.


+ GT-420 on December 14th, 2012 at 10:06 am said:

My holiday wish is for one of two things: Either 1) Make DualShock controllers cheaper, $19.99 is good; or 2) Make DualShock controllers much more durable, especially the thumbsticks, so that they deserve the higher price.


+ onslaughtree on December 14th, 2012 at 10:16 am said:

Best Buy has the Killzone Trilogy+Dualshock 3 pack for $39.99…..Best deal all year.


+ joaryche on December 14th, 2012 at 10:19 am said:

what about the racing wheel required for Little Big Planet Karting?


+ JellyJugs on December 14th, 2012 at 10:25 am said:

i want the Wonderbook bundle


+ Satnamji on December 14th, 2012 at 10:46 am said:

That’s a decent price on the Move controller and Sharpshooter. Everything else is still a bit of a gip. $20 for an HDMI cable? Really? Maybe in 2006. This is 2012, going on 2013. I have yet to pay more than $5 for a 6 footer.


+ BlueBl1zzard on December 14th, 2012 at 10:56 am said:

Wanted to see some vita accessories……..hopefully not too late


+ TRIX_BOL on December 14th, 2012 at 11:34 am said:

Wow great deals. I was about to purchase one Move Motion Controller off eBay for a higher price, now grace to this deals I will wait and buy it at a retail store next week. Thank you for the news Richard, Thank you Sony.
Happy Holidays!


+ TRIX_BOL on December 14th, 2012 at 11:48 am said:

@18 onslaughtree

Amazing deal the one you pointed out. I checked the site and indeed Killzone Trilogy + DualShock3 Controller deal is valid at $39.99. Definitely a STEAL, Thanks!


+ DrZombie on December 14th, 2012 at 12:21 pm said:

Nice deal time to get a new controller after so much year playing loll!!


+ lisatsunami on December 14th, 2012 at 12:34 pm said:

I already have multiple sets of almost everything, but would it kill you, Sony Products division to make a purple controller?! Third party knock offs are NOT as good as Sony OEM because I’ve tried those. And don’t counter by saying you have pink. I have 2 of those but I still want purple! And a purple Vita!!!!


+ MakoSOLIDER on December 14th, 2012 at 12:40 pm said:

No Vita battery :(


+ purse317 on December 14th, 2012 at 12:46 pm said:

Ok lets be honest I usually pay these prices for these accessories at online retailers anyway. My dualhock was $40 on amazon months ago


+ Welmosca on December 14th, 2012 at 1:19 pm said:

Just a new Dualshock 3 for me…I’m in need…but for real I’m waiting for some PSN sales…and please don’t give us digital disc-based games…give us some PSN games.


+ OleGunnar on December 14th, 2012 at 1:45 pm said:

Sony, either this “sale/promotion” is a joke or you all are completely out of touch with reality. Almost every single “sale/promotion” price is the price you can get these items at Amazon any day of the week.

I swear, I’m starting to think you people live in a bubble.


+ Kchow23 on December 14th, 2012 at 1:46 pm said:

Sale on PS Vita accessories would be great specially memory cards :)


+ BlueBl1zzard on December 14th, 2012 at 1:52 pm said:

@ lisatsunami Hey don’t forgot about that “design your own controller” contest they had a few months ago, the winner might be a purple one : ) and I want a blue vita!


+ AizawaYuuichi on December 14th, 2012 at 1:55 pm said:

I’m with lisatsunami! Give us a purple controller! I’d buy one in a heartbeat!

Though from all these sales, I’ll most likely pick up Sports Champions 2 now. And maybe the Wonderbook Bundle.


+ D-Squad3 on December 14th, 2012 at 2:04 pm said:

Hmm, DS3 for $40 is tempting, would have loved $30 though.


+ freshprincepbg on December 14th, 2012 at 2:54 pm said:

There should be a price drop on PS Vita memory cards!! A 32 GB memory card for $100, you know how insane that is? I refuse to buy one for more than $50, and will not buy any more games until there is a price drop!


+ GRIM__REAFER on December 14th, 2012 at 3:41 pm said:

I don’t get how people get HD cords for $20 or more. Hell I got like 5 and never even paid for them. I know you can get some for under 10 even $3. The controllers have always been expensive.


+ Sneeches on December 14th, 2012 at 3:58 pm said:

dammit i bought a new controller last week lol.

BUT Wonder book is down to 29$, my daughter wants this for xmas, so now’s the time to grab it.


+ Nergil on December 14th, 2012 at 4:04 pm said:

Took me a while to figure out wtf was 60%off…down at the bottom of the list…the sharpshooter, lol

I was really really hoping for a better deal on the pulse headset…I’d love to have one, but I’m not paying over 100 for it since I don’t really care about the whole pulse function…I just like the way it looks a lot more than the regular wireless one I bought from sony a year ago.

Sorry, not too impressive…guess I’ll be waiting…everything else I want in the accessories department I already own….I should quit buying so much stuff, lol


+ FeistFan on December 14th, 2012 at 4:44 pm said:

$35 total for a Nav and Sharpshooter…not bad. Just might have to…sorry…pull the trigger on that one.

Buy Sports Champions 2 from PSN, and get Deadmund’s Quest free (essentially)? That’s not too bad either, though I’d prefer the disk version. Still worth a look.

Though $40 for a Dualshock 3 isn’t a stop-the-presses price – you guys could knock another $10 off if you really wanted to get people excited (I’d buy a new one at $30, probably, but can’t eek it out at $40, which amazon will slip to about once a month, anyway). We haven’t been able to do 4-player LPB for a while since my eldest daughter dropped a controller into water – the rice trick didn’t save it – but we’re on a budget, here.


+ IceColdKilla44 on December 14th, 2012 at 5:02 pm said:

Eh, maybe I’ll pick up a Dualshock if the sale applies to the red one too.

But a pretty disappointing sale overall. I was hoping for a sale on either the Vita Memory cards or the Move Racing Wheel.


+ GhostMachine1 on December 14th, 2012 at 5:24 pm said:

i want the Pulse headset! Sony please give it to me for being a loyal fan! XD


+ gundam08thteam on December 14th, 2012 at 5:27 pm said:

picking up another controller yes!!!!!!


+ TheDeity on December 14th, 2012 at 5:45 pm said:

these are all GREAT prices and should remain the prices of these items FOREVER


+ jlslippers on December 14th, 2012 at 6:44 pm said:

I think that someone at Sony needs to learn math because these prices are not 60% off. For example: 60% off thre blu ray remote would make the price $10.00 not $19.99 which is not even half price.


+ Nergil on December 14th, 2012 at 6:45 pm said:

Um…it’s UP to 60% off…not all are 60% off


+ sparepart on December 14th, 2012 at 8:37 pm said:

It’s one item at 60% off the rest are not any sale. IMO I do not think wonderbook will be worth half that in a year. I will be spending my gift money on better values this year sony.


+ GhostAce22 on December 14th, 2012 at 9:59 pm said:

oh man i really want those pulse headsets


+ Elvick_ on December 14th, 2012 at 11:22 pm said:

Picking up the charging station for the PS Move. Need one desperately.


+ guitarded77 on December 14th, 2012 at 11:25 pm said:

I can recommend the Pulse Elite Headset… sounds awesome, and my friends never complain that they can’t hear me anymore.

Already have every stinkin’ accessory on the list, but may pick up Sports Champions 2 for $30. The Sharp Shooter for $15 is pretty good, I got one online from Best Buy for $10 on Black Friday. It’s good quality, but more games need to support it, and it needs a scope attachment since it has the mounting slide already.


+ GMFCO311 on December 14th, 2012 at 11:34 pm said:

@ #12 Ryumoau

What a shocker to find you trolling again on another post.

And what exactly are Dual Stick controllers? I’m sure your meaning Dual Shock controller. And $39.99 is a reasonable fair sale price for it no matter how many years PS3 has been out. XBox charges the same for their controllers when they are on sale.

Please stop trolling and complaining about nonsense already! You must have never heard of the phrase, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say it at all”, but then again trolls usually aren’t very smart!
