An example of why I feel these aren’t really a good sale.

You can find Battlefield 4 (PS4) new with a physical disc on Amazon for $43. Why does Sony feel $49 for a digital version (which can’t be resold) is a sale? If it was $35, $30 for PS+, people would definitely buy it, and undermine the used game market on Ebay doing it. That’s what I call a “sale”.

But as it stands, I will hold out for better deal instead of paying “full” price for a new one “on sale”.

+ USRevenge2 on June 9th, 2014 at 8:25 am said:

if the ps4 were the same as ps3 prices this wouldn’t be TOO bad. but otherwise nope.

the only ps4 game a decent price is MGS, but I rather buy that $20 retail and trade it in 2 hours later when I beat it for $10.

This sale is a joke


54

+ Mando44646 on June 9th, 2014 at 8:26 am said:

Finally a decent price for MGS. I might pick that up. The NfS price is still embarrassingly high though. Otherwise, not much here for me


55

+ Mando44646 on June 9th, 2014 at 8:28 am said:

Also, vanilla Battlefield for almost 50 bucks? That’s a joke of a sale. Why would I pay that digitally rather than spending that on a used GS copy that I can resell when I’m sick of it? PSN really needs to rethink its pricing models or no one is going to be drawn to digital over physical

So the Vita gets two games that weren’t even announced at last year’s E3.

Well this gives me great hope for this year.

Tempting price for Ground Zeroes, but… No David Hayter, no buy. Nice try, Konami, but I know where my loyalties lie.

+ pri4vedi on June 9th, 2014 at 8:48 am said:

What a waste of time!!!! Compare this to the 2013 e3 sale. Sony just launched a new console and should support it by giving more sales. They’re instead just hoping that the early adopters for ps4 will be willing to shell out more cash for games. I don’t even feel like going back to my ps3 anymore because of the controller.

+ ariasjosegames on June 9th, 2014 at 8:49 am said:

Well, thanks for that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes discount! $14.69 is a great price for it! :-D

Everytime, around this time at E3.
The trolls arrive.
They’ve always been there, every E3.
Making lame @$$ excuses for you to hate Sony or PlayStation, when they’re the ones that saved Video Games in general.
But, the trolls being trolls, they’ll make 1001 excuse to hate on their greatness, because they envy the success of PlayStation.


63

+ SpooNManX on June 9th, 2014 at 8:58 am said:

Not too bad, but previous E3 entries were more exciting. I’m still hopeful we will get some surprise games added during e3, such as Knack and Killzone, and some PlayStation Now freebies.

“+ BaneyFunny on June 9th, 2014 at 7:15 am said:
Why can i not play my own mp3 mixtapes on PS4 F*** YOU SONY i hope you go bankrupt”

Haha.. you want to play tapes on your PS4? You’re in luck. Sony will be announcing a Sony Walkman cassette tape add-On for the PS4 at E3!!

But seriously, I am still hopeful Sony will come through on this. We do need the ability to play MP3′s on our PS4… Why let the Xbone do something better than the PS4, especially when it would be so simple and easy to add this feature. It just makes too much sense to ignore.

+ ElektroDragon on June 9th, 2014 at 8:58 am said:

Very disappointing, especially when the ACIV Season Pass is not on sale. Put the Season Pass on sale instead of the game!

@favian
Lately, Canadian prices have been different from the US counterpart.

+ purse317 on June 9th, 2014 at 9:08 am said:

These are great games but they don’t really work as sale items now. Most of us have brought them already I know I have so we are not interested in these sales.

Can’t beat the wolf among us price , to bad I just bought the walking dead season pass last week. Almost bought wolf among us season pass yesterday glad I waited.


68

+ msmont on June 9th, 2014 at 9:28 am said:

@51, that’s the price point I was looking at too. I want Killzone, Infamous, Watch Dogs and Battlefield for PS4. Watch Dogs is too new, so I wouldn’t expect a sale on it yet. The other games are around 40 dollars new on amazon. I was really hoping for a 30 dollar PS+ price on all three this week, I probably would have bought all 3.

I think we are just at an odd period right now where we want PS4 games on big sales like PS3 games are, but there isn’t enough of a library yet.

What a terrible sale. I was ready to open my wallet but looks like i’m only picking up ground zeroes for ps4


70

+ Rezolution77 on June 9th, 2014 at 10:04 am said:

Got really excited for a good sale.

Oh wait, NM.

Not seeing much, Luftrausers maybe, Diablo 3 isn’t bad but have not researched it enough, and Walking Dead has no Vita love.

Really expected much bigger.

If PS4 will not play my digtal titles and MP3, Xbox One will be my next choice.

+ Rayderism on June 9th, 2014 at 10:08 am said:

TWD S2 and Wolf Among Us are the ones I’ll be getting. Was going to get them eventually anyway, now I’ll get them for a lower price. Sweet!

Initially, I was going to wait for the full seasons, but I can’t pass up the deal. Just recently played through Back To The Future and then TWD S1 (still have to finish 400 Days though) and enjoyed them immensely. Bought Jurassic Park last night, so these are a no-brainer, even if they’re not “complete” yet.

Now I just wish I had time on weekdays to play. My job consumes my weekdays.

+ Subzero1313 on June 9th, 2014 at 10:14 am said:

If I buy Diablo 3 here on PS3, what’s the cost to upgrade to PS4 when it’s released? Is I free like FFXIV?

oooh, gonna have to pick up Saints Row IV and maybe Luftrausers…I wish SR4′s season pass was on sale so I could get the DLCs though ^^; I only have 20 bucks unfortunately.

Do you think I can get some kind of refund or something because I just bought Saints Row 4 around 3 days ago and im feeling really cheated.

This Sale Sux Giant Phallic Objects. PS4 KILLZONE E3 SALE OR MURDEROUS E3 SONY RAMPAGING RIOTS ARE A GO!!!
Ps4 Sales on Transistor & Strider need to happen. The Order 1886 Characters look stupid, if I have Cool Kick Ass Weapons, I’m not going to be wearing Plain Lame Suits. Konami, the MGS 2 Sons of Liberty Demo sold years ago was OK cause it came with Zone of the Enders Game for Free(You read that correctly), but Ground Zero, basically a Demo, I cannot justify Purchasing for any more than $5 for my Ps4. I can’t wait for Playstation Now to Fail so Sony will release an Emuator for Ps4 to play Ps1,2 & 3 games, My 200+ Digital Game Library wouldn’t be a Rarity, it would become the Standard.

+ Tidus755 on June 9th, 2014 at 11:25 am said:

I might go for Ground Zeroes on PS3, and I’ll pass on other sales. I would have otherwise purchased Walking Dead S2 if it were on Vita but since it’s only PS3 i’ll pass :/

+ jose213jose on June 9th, 2014 at 11:57 am said:

Theses’ deal don’t work for me but MGS Ground Zero only, I’m going to wait for 100% collection when MGS TPP comes out with it then, two games by them self no no.

Hoping to see PS Plus 50-60% off, I would buy two Plus membership for two years then one. :)

(FYI, I’m posting this in 5 parts (yeah xD ), because I don’t know if there’s a “posting limit” or something like that or not. So I’m sorry, but I need to be sure… ;)
I usually stay out of the comments section, mainly because most of the time it’s just a huge waste of time: the only things the blog staff actually reply to are compliments and flattery…and the ocasional empty remark (i.e. “Beyond!”). So, why bother? >_>


83

+ Orpheus_Aeons on June 9th, 2014 at 11:59 am said:

But since this time I felt like talking to other users (and you ALWAYS reply to anything), I’m gonna unload a little burden I’ve been having lately. So…here we go: Most of you are just a bunch of UNGRATEFUL B@STARDS. All you do ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME is complain, complain, complain. You wanted the PS4 to NOT ban used games (because apparently you’re all a bunch of pretty stingy people). And what happened? Sony gave us just that. Now you complain that used games are cheaper than their digital counterparts. Great. -.-


84

+ Orpheus_Aeons on June 9th, 2014 at 11:59 am said:

A bunch of you bought the PS4 at launch. And now the only thing you do is to complain that PS3 games are cheaper. Seriously? Wow. That’s as dumb as someone buying a 4K TV and complaining because there’s not enough products for it. The damn console doesn’t even have A YEAR, people!!! OF COURSE PS3 games are going to be A LOT more cheaper! That’s EXACTLY how it should be! It’s called CAPITALISM. New things ALWAYS cost more than old things. Especially at launch. That’s the price you pay for trying to be “cool & trendy”.


85

+ Orpheus_Aeons on June 9th, 2014 at 11:59 am said:

And don’t even get me started on the guy complaining because he can’t play his “mixtapes” on the PS4! Wow…
Oh! And the punchline? The people that tries to…I don’t know…intimidate? threaten? Sony with things like “I you don’t give me [X] I will buy an X1 instead”. LMAO! Really? You sure have a HUGE self esteem…you seriously think that ANYONE at Sony will care if you go and buy the crappy M$ console? Please! GO! NOW! Buy it and play lots of Halo. That way at least you won’t be throwing up ridiculous threats around here.


86

+ Orpheus_Aeons on June 9th, 2014 at 12:00 pm said:

You have a PS4? Deal with it. Wait for game’s prices to go down…or go back to play the still-very-much-alive-mega-console-from-last-gen. If you wanted an awesome library with juicy discounts…you should’ve WAITED to buy a Next-Gen console.
You have a PS3? Enjoy the cool discounts while they last…because you know the clock’s ticking, right? =(
You have a Vita? Well…yup, you’re pretty much…you know. So…tough luck, buddy. =P

+ Husteen on June 9th, 2014 at 12:03 pm said:

sigh, not bad on the game selection, but wrong console. i really want AC black flag for ps4, but if history is any indication, it will eventually be $10 when ubisoft has another AC sale.

already have contrast from ps plus.

final fantasy… i would have at least considered it at that price.

already have outlast from ps plus, too.

the other ps4 games don’t interest me, and most of them are still way too expensive. i just added $50 to my ps wallet, and it’s sad how that doesn’t go very far despite my best efforts to stretch it. i don’t mean to sound ungrateful, because i really do love these weekly deals and wait for them every week, but they have gotten really bad all of a sudden.


88

+ Rezolution77 on June 9th, 2014 at 12:26 pm said:

I also wanted to point out, that Final Fantasy a Realm Reborn is a pay to play game (maybe worth it).

It says NOTHING about that in the purchase agreement on PSN.

Not a lawyer, but you should really make that known for those of us not right on top of all things games.


89

+ Rezolution77 on June 9th, 2014 at 12:36 pm said:

@83.

Feel better?
Did it change anything, or you honestly think that the blogs are not filled with other “complainers” just like you?

The difference is wether it is relevant.

Not every complaint will ever get addressed by Sony or Sony affililiate.

The difference is that they sometimes do actually care about customer feedback, and since we may or may not, or have already bought it, it is Completely relevant.

People will always complain (till heaven I hope), but why tire yourself.


90

+ Rezolution77 on June 9th, 2014 at 12:43 pm said:

Or instead of trying to make changes to make things better, do you do like soo many others and point out the negative then act like Sony and say thngs like “tough”, “crybaby” , or “hahahaha”.

And not having MP3 playback, and access to all my past PS digital purchases is a good enough reason to inform Sony of why they haven’t sold more.

Might as well consider Sony, the new replacement of Redbox and rent the console, just like a cable company.
Not a good direction.

Its one thing to say I don’t like these sales, they are not discounted enough, I would like to see shadow fall on sale for $30 or ps4 ac on sale… But people saying I will cancel plus or I will go get a xb1 (which do they have a sale for titanfall xb1 for half price) is a bit over the top

You can still order the PSP retail copies of the Hot Shot Series through Walmart for a little more.

this

“NfS Rivals -> PS3 $29.39 / PS4 $48.59
Battlefield 4 -> PS3 $24.49 / PS4 $48.59
Please convince my why I should buy the PS4 versions when prices are this much different. I bought the PS4 on launch day (my first time ever and I own all PS products) but I only bought 1 game so far (Watch Dogs) I’m very disappointed in how slow game prices go down while the same product on PS3 is on sale already for less then 50% of launchprice.”


96

+ bobarue on June 9th, 2014 at 1:03 pm said:

@93
I agree. I come to these posts to find out what people like in sales so I can research and maybe purchase if the price is right. Just hard to see how entitled kids are these days and how they react when they don’t get their way.


97

+ Orpheus_Aeons on June 9th, 2014 at 1:03 pm said:

@89 Actually…YEAH, I feel A LOT better, thanks. =)

Unlike all those “complainers” you speak of…I wasn’t trying to change anything nor I wasn’t trying to accomplish something…aside from speaking my mind, of course.
I wasn’t trying to bash on people that disagree with Sony’s “business decisions” either. I myself don’t agree with a lot of those. And I even think this sale is really lame and disappointing.

But this comment section is ALWAYS filled with people complaining about the dumbest things, you know? And personally I’m fed up with that. So I was in the mood to finally make some enemies…and up there is the result. xD

And 2 last things: 1) That kind of “customer feedback”? Trust me: they couldn’t care less about it. 2) It IS relevant if you “already bought it or not”, because that’s the whole point of the argument: they complain ONLY because Sony doesn’t comply with whatever crazy request they could have. Otherwise they will be posting compliments instead of complaints. -.-
