Damn i was hoping to see Resident Evil 4 in the list but sadly its not there :( but good list non the less. i guess ill save my money for retail games then xD

mixedkidbx said:

January 16th, 9:12 am

Hmm not sure ill be getting anything

rodrom said:

January 16th, 9:15 am

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

Quinny said:

January 16th, 9:16 am

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.

there goes my fun money for the month :(

Zohmbies1 said:

January 16th, 9:16 am

I wanted to see Res 4 also

Dumad said:

January 16th, 9:17 am

Too bad for me… Nothing interesting…

SlyCooperFan100 said:

January 16th, 9:17 am

Nothing interests me at all in this sale. Ah well.

morrislevy said:

January 16th, 9:17 am

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.

Scavengre said:

January 16th, 9:18 am

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!

    Added discount for PS+ subscribers = WIN !


January 16th, 9:18 am

No plus :(

Berae said:

January 16th, 9:19 am

Nice, you guys should have added infamous festival of blood

ReptileHand said:

January 16th, 9:19 am

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!

MalGanis-DL said:

January 16th, 9:20 am

maybe the Arkade Kollection, maybe

Xer0Signal said:

January 16th, 9:21 am

Rochard and Pay Day for only $15?

Why, thank you.

AWESOME ! I will be picking up at least 4 of these titles. $4.89 is the my price point for impulse buying.

got all allready

IJoker said:

January 16th, 9:28 am

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

FireDragonMonkey said:

January 16th, 9:30 am

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

coperoYpeleador said:

January 16th, 9:38 am

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

Elvick_ said:

January 16th, 9:39 am

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

Siren: Blood Curse sale at some point in 2012, make it happen Ro! :)

    Let me dig into that a little more! Good suggestion tho!

pcwzrd13 said:

January 16th, 9:42 am

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

sefjwm said:

January 16th, 9:44 am

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

ONDX said:

January 16th, 9:45 am

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

Silvercube said:

January 16th, 9:47 am

Nothing of interest for me here.

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


Conaaando said:

January 16th, 9:48 am

I’m so getting Eufloria for 4 bucks. :-)

…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.

sciteach said:

January 16th, 9:51 am

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

geist226 said:

January 16th, 9:51 am

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.

CptAmerica85 said:

I just bought SF3 on saturday (jan. 14th). This is retarded, I want half my money back.

Midnight club 2 needs a comeback…just throwing it out there

saab01 said:

January 16th, 9:52 am

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.

    January 17th, 12:26 pm

    So worth it… especially at that price… 4 Player Co-op is super fun!

Van-Man76 said:

January 16th, 9:55 am

I’m all over the SIdeway New York and Mortal Kombat bundle :)

Van-Man76 said:

January 16th, 9:55 am

Payday was awesome

KILLO31 said:

January 16th, 9:57 am

Payday and PJ side scroller have me !

Myke-Myke said:

Pretty impressive deals.

I’m so happy I renewed my Plus membership!

    Good for you! More deals headed your way…

AldenG said:

January 16th, 9:59 am

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

Phillyblunz said:

January 16th, 10:05 am

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 said:

January 16th, 10:07 am

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

ZubatKing said:

January 16th, 10:10 am

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.
