Hi Chris, any news on the February content for PS+ ? :)


We will be updating you all next week on the Feb Plus content

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is actually a nice deal. Not my type of game, but should definitely be interesting to some folks.
#1: PS + info for feb should appear somewhere (early?) next week.


Also, any news on the Final Fantasy sale? That was supposed to start today also.


The final fantasy sale as well as these additional deals for the January sale will go live after the store publish today

Awesome Sony! Such sweet Vita deals you managed for us. The care and support you show your handheld is simply amazing! You even managed to secure Resident Evil: Revalaitons from Capcpom on the Vita. The future of the Vita is bright indeed with all the love you keep showering over it. Bravo!

“What’s a Vita?” – Sony

Oh wait! nothing on Vita? WHAT A SURPRISE!

Does Battle Royale include PS3 and Vita versions?


Yes you will get the VITA version with PS3 version

zalwelgoedgaan 23 January, 2013 @ 11:08

PS+ discount included should make Max Payne 3 €18, right? I think I’ll get that one. Rockstar is pretty generous with their digital content, haha.

Paul_Morningstar 23 January, 2013 @ 11:08

Very nice prices.

Saving my cash for the Vita sale though.


So RDR with Undead DLC is cheaper than without. :D

I think I will get that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale deal!

You really need to adjust prices. The RDR thing is the same situation as with Dead Island vs Dead Island GOTY. I won’t complain though.



Could you please tell me to why Spec Ops The Line is showing up as €59.99 & is priced €24.99 above.. Many Thanks.


Because that sale ended on the 16th January as stated in the post above

Wait why is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale PSvita version not on sale aswell?!(yes I know you can get it with the ps3 version but maybe I just want the psvita version


Because in negotiations with the studios we were able to secure the PS3 version but yes like you say you get the VITA version anyway when you buy the PS3 version

or not, you just linked to the wrong RDR content. Guess I won’t buy it after all.


we will get the link fixed for this so it is pointing to the correct product, sorry for the confusion

That’s not a sale. The US PSN Store has far better deals…

Why can’t we have great offers like that???

Phantom_Blaze 23 January, 2013 @ 11:21

Can’t wait for the PS+ content! I hope you put LBP Karting in there!! :)


Are the any new Vita games in today’s store update?


Just checked in with Jawad and he mentioned Doodle God but his store post will be up in a little while

Any chance of a discount on unfinished swan similar to the one currently available on U.S store?

When does pinball arcade become part of the instant game collection?


A discount on Unfinished Swan is being worked on but we do not have confirmed timings yet, likely to be March.

Pinball Arcade joins the IGC today when the store is updated


it clearly says that that deal ended on the 16th.


Nothing for me this time, looking forward for a vita sale :-)


Any chance of a 13 for 13 sale like the US? ‘Cause that’s what a real is supposed to be like

Apologies for the double-post. The link got messed up. It should be…

Any chance of virtua tennis on vita dropping price anytime soon?

I’m in for PS All Stars Battle Royale, FF VIII & IX, and maybe even Sports Champions 2.

A sale for PS VITA’s Gravity Rush DLC would be nice, too!!!

Lol and still no PSVita love. Nice.

Never, ever ever EVER use the words ‘coming soon’ since early December to say ‘something’ is coming for PSVita like USA got the PSVita Xmas deals with LittleBigPlanet for about 18 USD for PS+ members, Escape Plan 50% discount to 7.50 etc.

You’re managing expactations way waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay wrong. Even though something of a sale might come up with PSVita’s 1st years birthday in February or something that is a freaking 2 months later than end of November/early December.



I saw Virtua Tennis 4 (Vita) in GAME last week for £7.99. And that’s for a new copy, not pre-owned. Snapped it up right then and there!

TerrorOfDeath86 23 January, 2013 @ 11:42

(Not available in Kuwait/Qatar/Saudi Arabia/UAE) Awesome sale :( BTW Where’s September GOTM?

Lads, ye do realise you can’t pick what you want in a sale? So much complaining over not getting what you want. Also Chris has had to repeat things so often.

A vita sale is on the way so stop complaining about the lack of vita titles, it is coming.

Also since it always seems to be brought up I’d suggest people create a US PSN account. That way you can get that sale too.

Anyway I’m quite happy with the sale. Got the Borderlands DLC pass and I was looking for GTA at a good price after previously missing it and I’ll take the discount on the Dark Souls DLC.

Thank you.

Oh and this:

“Posted on 23 January, 2013 at 11:20 am by Graffin_G

That’s not a sale. The US PSN Store has far better deals… -updates-75-off-many-acclaimed-titles-free-foosball/

Why can’t we have great offers like that???”

Spot on. Those 13 deals for 2013, have Psychonauts for PS+ members for 2.50 USD (10 bucks normal price) Unfinished Swan for 3 dollars and a bit for PS+ members etc. And yes, they got no PSVita deals with this deals, but they had those at Xmas.

EU didn’t have ’em for BOTH Xmas as well as this sale. PSVita, dead in the water I guess. The current just over 4 mln early adapting consumers aren’t as important as the 75 mln current PS3 owners/PSN shopping consumers I guess.


I’m hoping and wishing Journey comes to ps+ , any hints?hmmm?
And quite a good sale , i think i might invest in sports champions.
Does anyone else hold off buying older titles in case ps+ get it? , i do it all the time!!


Will be grabbing FF7 and FF Tactics (@ £3.99 a pop) when the store opens. Looking forward to Pinball Arcade too. Oh and I might just buy the Retro City Rampage. Loved the demo.

Hi Chris, I wrote to you in the previous January Sale update (comment #128). After getting Mafia II & DLC Bundle, the game doesn’t recognize any of the DLC, it’s like I haven’t got it at all. What’s more, when I go to in-game menu part “Downloadable Content” there’s the same bundle, but redirecting me to the PSS Store to buy it again!
It looks like there are two DLC Bundles, but the one compatible with the game is not showing normally in the PS Store, only by going from the in-game menus. Can you please pass this problem to the guys managing PS Store?


I have passed this issue onto the store team again but I would suggest that you contact customer services as well

Great deals! Ow wait, I live in Belgium, f**k me right?


Got Playstation Allstars for ps3 and the digital version for Vita was included it doesn’t mention if that is the deal here (correct me if I’m wrong)

But I have to say it is the perfect Vita game. I’d recommend it to all Vita owners even if you don’t usually play fighting games.

On ps3 IMO the action is too chaotic but very easy to follow on the handhelds screen, go buy it folks!


No no NO!
Nothing that interests me :/
When will the next sale come? (I’m pretty sure you already know what I’m waiting for by now)
Oh, and any chance we can get Xenogears US import?

Store has updated, nice deal on Max Payne 3.

Not sure how I missed the Spec Ops deal, my bad for not getting that.

The price drop for “Final Fantasy” is already implemented into the PS store but there is either a error or someone is being a [DELETED] cause they upped the original price at least for Poland.
Original price was 36PLN and with the discount it should be 18PLN but now it’s 39PLN original and 19PLN with discount.
I rally don’t mind the 1PLN difference but it is a [DELETED] move.


Yesterday i looked on play to see what Retail Vita Games where coming soon, This is ALL The games for the next 3 months they had to pre-order !

Persona 4 + Dead Or Alive 5

This is very worrying and the lack of support on new psn games not having a vita version is also not a good look,

Have sony already gave up on the Vita ?

Hey, can we expect Crysis 2 in sale?


It will not be in the January sale

maximalcheetor 23 January, 2013 @ 12:15

If you go into any physical store, you can’t pick and choose what games are reduced and if an American store reduces prices on one product but a European doesn’t that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. Even stores with an online presence often have different prices between the two because of their overheads but Chris has said repeatedly that the US and EU stores are managed and operated separately and can’t run the same deals.

As for discounts and offers, don’t forget that we had FOUR Minis free over Christmas, we’re getting SIX PS Mobile games over the coming weeks and for those who don’t have PS+, they’ve done a one month free trial.

If offers / discounts come up for games you don’t want / already have, there are plenty of us that do want them. Yes, the FF offer has been done before but not everyone has been able to get them so it’s great to have that chance again.

Big thumbs up to SCEE. :)

Does the RDR Undead Nightmare Collection include the original RDR, or is it a completely different game?

windsorblue01 23 January, 2013 @ 12:20

hey chris thanks for the pinball arcade just got it but i thought we only had it for vita i got the ps3 version as well looking forward to nfeb plus content

Am I reading this right? Playstation Allstars Battle Royale not on sale until the 25th?

LittleBigSylph 23 January, 2013 @ 12:23

Will the Walking Dead be on sale anytime soon?



I was in GAME the other day and saw a top-up card for Harley Quinn’s Revenge for B:AC and it was priced at £6.49 which I thought was a reasonable price but I had a nagging feeling in the back of my head so did not buy it.

I got home, booted up the the PS Store and there it was; Harley Quinn’s Revenge for £7.99….

So my question to you is If I buy the £6.49 top-up card from GAME will that be the price I pay or will it be the full £7.99 to buy that piece of DLC?

It’s a simple question so all I ask for is a simple answer :-)

Cheers Chris


maximalcheetor 23 January, 2013 @ 12:28

@TinTin I’ve seen that a few times where retail top-up cards have had different prices to the PSN Store. Sometimes in-store prices have been cheaper, other times it has been more expensive but my guess is that the codes you get at the retail checkout are locked to the product and not PSN credit to the value of the item so they should work perfectly.

That’s why I saw some retailers reduce the price of the PS+ cards during the special offer.

@ tintinb303 it will download with the game voucher for 6.49 ,please tell me wrestlefest is up today


#40: It’s a standalone game in the same environment as RDR. It’s really good though!
Just watch out, there are two downloads, the Collection, which requires the original game, and “RDR Undead Nightmare”, which is standalone, but does not include the DLC packs “Legends and Killers” and “Liars and Cheats”.
Both are on offer for the same price.

The blogpost should actually include this, I guess..

Stavros-Bigboss 23 January, 2013 @ 12:34

Like always games old or realy bad, maybe someday we at last get discounts for dead or alive 5 or assassin’s creed 3.

Nothing for me…. Was hoping for Galaga Legions DX as its never been discounted or a plus title!
Any chance of this some time soon?


@ maximalcheetor & GYSALM

Cheers for the help guys!

Much appreciated :-D


Hi Chris, I believe you have an error on that post!

You’re listing The Undead Collection for RDR at sale, which is this one:!/cid=EP1004-BLES00680_00-PREDDEADRE000006

The link, however brings me to…:!/cid=EP1004-NPEB00832_00-PSNRDRUNDEADV003

So I have to guess you had to list two items, but somehow you just listed one putting the link to the other.


Zombie Driver HD release date?? Exor Studios said it was going to be released in Europe in January. Any chance it will go live today?


when comes the Sly Cooper thieves in time demo?the US got it allready and i want to play it!


Is pinball arcade for PS3 meant to come with the vita one? Its listed there as free but don’t wanna download if its not meant to be :-P prays rainbow moon isn’t in the Igc as I just got that and unfinished swan :-D


#55: No it is not, and it’s probably just the demo/trial. If it’s free for you, grab it while you can.

Seeing as you guys seem pretty big on Final Fantasy, how about bringing Crisis Core: FF VII to the store for PSP & VITA?

That would make me a happy moogle, kupo!

Is their also a fleeting chance at least of seeing Kingdom Hearts appear on the PSN? Something tells me the 1.5 Final Mix HD collection won’t see an European release.. Just like FF: Type-0 (Another game we should have on Vita if not for SE’s stupidity)

Call me greedy but, I’d really like to see some Tekken avatars added one day too. Street Fighter has enough don’t you think? >.>

jimbob12345678 23 January, 2013 @ 12:57


Any joy with the Blazblue: CS DLC price cut yet? I know I keep on asking but until pqube say either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ I don’t wanna pay out for it and be left dissapointed.

I did try asking them directly on twitter but they haven’t responded… :P


I actually chased this again yesterday, still working on it I’m afraid, if you can hold on for a little longer I hope to have a yes or no soon

Not too shabby, but I would like something like the 13 for 13 action in the US.

Oh, and could you get the Pinball Arcade DLC tables discounted for Plussers?


A discount request for Pinball Arcade tables is currently with the publisher, hopefully we will be able to secure it for either next week or the week after

Jacko_the_lad 23 January, 2013 @ 13:00

I was hoping for a discount on The Walking Dead, but never mind. I’ll just buy it anyway. :P

Any chance of a Machinarium discount in the future?

Jacko_the_lad 23 January, 2013 @ 13:01

Oh wait, it’s not going to be in the Instant Game Collection, is it?

CoolRichy008UK 23 January, 2013 @ 13:06

Graffin_G well we all know what the americans are dont we LOL so what if they got better psn store content they all have to pay taxes ontop of any game they get from the ps store us brits dont :D

Katana_Strikes 23 January, 2013 @ 13:07

There’s no additional 10% off the Borderlands 2 Season Pass for Plus subscribers???

ChemicalBacon90 23 January, 2013 @ 13:15

Disappointed that Undead Nightmare (Full Game) is only reduced to £7.99 as it was on sale for £3.99 in September 2012.

Good deal for Sony Smash Bros though if that’s your kind of thing.


Does All-Stars Battle Royale contain the Vita version too? For 24.99€, it’s cheaper than purchasing the separate Vita version…


Yep the PS3 version is on sale and you get the VITA version with it for no extra cost


Metal gear demo and dead space 3 in the same day lol never been this excited about demos in my life :-D


If I don’t have a PS3 available at the moment, can I buy Battle Royale from the sony entertainment network webstore and play it on my vita directly or is it required to activate it on ps3 first?


You should just buy read dead redemption goty from the shop its like £10 now in game :-D same with most of the games they charge mental prices for :-D lol guess I’m just stating the obvious though.


@Chaosprower: You should get the Vita Version and Online pass added automatically to the Download list, and dowload it from your Vita.

the final fantasy discount came at just the right time.
I was thinking of completing my vita ff collection in 1 go(I had only 6 and 9) and the discount saved me €35

Xerife_Lavanda 23 January, 2013 @ 13:41


I was waiting for ages for a good discount on Max Payne 3 :)

Thanks guys and keep up the good work ;)

Is Final Fantasy III part of the FF deal? I don’t see it there.. :(


No we were not able to secure a discount on it

I understand now why we almost never get any advatars.
in januarie we get enough for the whole year, lol

2 weeks in row lotssss of advatars

i buy advatar terraria ( stil waiting ful game !)
also new mayia skin /head borderlands 2

Hi, any chance that The Walking Dead Episodes will be on sale?


We are in discussions with the publisher over this still but I hope we will secure a discount on this soon

It is out now. There’s a blog entry about it now and not to mention, Store update is now live. Grab it now! = )

Now druing the sale the downloadable ps3 games actually have reasonable prices. I still prefer physical copies though but PS All-stars for 25€ sounds fair. I might buy Wolfestein because it’s an epic classic :D

Chris would it be possible to confirm that PS all stars will not be a PS+ free game for at least a decent time after the sale? would hate to buy the game and then receive it free a couple of months later, if it is on the cards Max Payne 3 is looking good instead!



PS all stars will not be in PS Plus anytime soon

Will Ni No Kuni be coming on the PSN on the 25th of Jan?


For the last week , sales on Jak & Daxter Trilogy would be great someting around 15€ for the trilogy.


There will not be another update next week as it will be the 30th Jan so therefore January sale will be over


@Nightmare966 Cool! Then I guess I’ll grab the bundle by the 25th (I don’t know why this one’s sale starts later than the others…)

Dear Chris,
now, im gonna ask u a question about a game,, that ALL OF U forgotten. It calls C O U N T E R S T R I K E : G L O B A L O F F E N S I V E ! u remember? this game that was released MONTHS ago and ONLY FOR THIS GAME no one of u ever said something about the final european release… my 20 euro psn card is nearly rotten because i dont know whats the actuall stand! So i please u, chris, to give me, US new infos? u dont know the release date? OK! BUT SAY WHATS THE ACTUELL STAND! im soo disappointed! Evrything gets a release… ALSO SKYRIM! SKYRIM MAN! say evrything u know abot cs go! We want to know it! ME and thousands of other players.
ps: no information isnt a answer….


We would love to be able to update you on this but we honestly have no news. There are legal issues surrounding the title which we do not have all the information for but as soon as we have positive news we will let you know

Dosentortellini 82@
u contry having game like conterstrike ????

big chance that your country is one of the reasons why we do not get it (legally speaking)

u stil want to buy , after sony + publisher are keeping silent + are arogant on matter ? = if i where u i boycot the game on ps3 + future games of the devlopper .

PS All Stars is still full priced here in the Indian store, atleast on the SEN store, although the other deals are active. What’s up with that?

Lovely update. Really looking forward to The Cave, and checking out Mad Dog McCree after all these years!

Re: Pinball Arcade. The store page says “Buy this product for PlayStation®Vita and get the PlayStation®3 version FOR FREE.” but the blog post says Vita only. Which one is correct?

50% off all that Borderlands stuff and now 50% off all the nifty Rockstar content.

SOMEONE at Take Two must really love all you guys on the PSN, right?

GarethTheGray 23 January, 2013 @ 16:02

What time of the day does the Borderland 2 sale end? Is it midnight or when the Store gets updated (around 5pm GMT)?

Vita sale?

Why does PSASBR not go on sale until Friday and then end on Monday?

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – (25th Jan – 28th Jan)

Is Sony hopeing a lot of people buy it today at full price unaware that the sale doesn’t start until Friday or are they just jerking us around for the fun of it?


That is just the sale dates agreed with the studio, we have made it pretty clear on here when the product will be on sale


I just have 3 questions if it’s possible to answer them that will be great.

1 – I’m wondering what the RDR Undead Nightmare Collection actually is.
DO we get the Game and all the DLC or is it just DLC?

2 – Can you let us know if Red Dead Redemption is just the game or does it come with any DLC?

3 – Will I need RDR Original game to use Undead Nightmare?


1. RDR Undead Nightmare is a collection of DLC including:
– Undead Nightmare Pack
– Liars and Cheats Pack
– Legends and Killers Pack

2. RDR is just the game

3. You do not need RDR to use the Undead Nightmare Pack

mafia 2 dlc bundle is not 8.99 on the store its cumming up as 18.99 like any1 is going 2 pay that fix the prices nd hope ps+ will get new games motorstorm lbp2 infamous 2 have been on it 4 ages think every1 is fed up with seein them on it what happend 2 batman


the mafia DLC bundle was taken out of the sale on January 16th as stated on the blog

Batman was the headline title for Plus for December not January

Motorstorm, LBP2 and inFamous 2 are the on the service until the middle of this year when we will review and change them

Hey Chris,

Any chance you can provide what time the 28th Playstation all stars special will go down?

I only get paid at night on the 28th, and really dont wanna miss out.
Im definitely taking Max payne.

Been nice specials lately, just when i thought my wallet was safe for a while.


It will be the end of the day on the 28th so plenty of time to buy

Hey Chris!

So a week ago someone complained about there being only 3 Vita games included in the sale, and you replied “Be patient, more to come in the near future”.

I foolishly thought that meant this week, but I guess I was mistaken. So is there something planned?


Yes I think it is widely known now that a VITA sale is coming early next month

where is our 13 for 13 sale? :( american gets littlebigplanet karting for 10$
i havent checked recently but on our store the cheapest ive ever seen it is 60$

american always gets there stuff cheaper (and no its not different exchange rates, ive checked) i saw games like killzone 2 (among many others)on their store for 7$ and thats not even a sale. the cheapest ive ever seen a full game on our store is 20$ and the ones that are that cheap are super old ones that were extremely unpopular.

considering creating a virtual debit card and doing business with america’s store >:(

Support the PS Vita. Sony love your products for once.


Seems like I’ll be getting PS Allstars after all. Stop making me offers I can’t refuse, Sony :) No, don’t stop, seriously.

Hmm, I tried PP to fund the wallet to buy Max Payne but the payment got cancelled. Seems like it does not work at all :(

thanks 4 the replay cant belive i missed batman by a day :o thought it would had been on playstation plus 4 a lil while like the other games any chance it will come back 4 download and is there a demo comming out 4 gta5 in the comming months be4 it release date


Our “hero” title for each month as we like to call it is only available for 4/5 weeks depending on how the weeks in the month fall, all other PS3 titles will be available for 3 months, it won’t be back in Plus I’m afraid, we don’t re use content

Sorry I have no information on the GTA5 demo


I want to buy Borderlands 2, on my ps store, the price still £19.99, but on basket, the price is £49.99…
I spent £20 on credits and i cant finish this buy
Sorry about my english.

Vou escrever em portugues pra ficar melhor.
Eu queria comprar o borderlands 2, vi que vi que o preço estava £19.99 e comprei creditos para comprar o jogo, mas ao tentar finalizar a compra, na cesta ele passa de £19.99 para £49.99.
sei que a promoção acabou ontem, mas eu só fiquei sabendo disso agora a pouco, não tinha como eu saber disso ja que na ps store o preço esta errado.
Acho que o correto seria vocês me venderem pelo preço de £19.99 ja que é o que esta descrito na PS Store, aguardo resposta


Borderlands 2 was only on sale until January 23rd as stated on the blog above


i have screenshot if u need


Hi Chris.

Any chance the DLCs for Darksiders II and Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be on sale?

Best regards.


It is a difficult time at the moment trying to negotiate with THQ because of the situation they are currently in but we can see what we can do.

It is unlikely that anymore FF titles will be on sale anytime soon


Hi Chris

picked up the sports champions games and move fitness and derrick the deathfin…………great stuff

is there any possiblities that you can get some great offers on the zen pinball 2 tables?

since you have taken over i have purchased nearly 3 times the games off the network…….my wallet says thanks…….yes really



Good stuff, glad you are enjoying the discounts, we are always trying to bring more discounts across a range of titles and we are always trying to work on discounts for the titles you all request so hopefully we can continue to please your wallet!

I will ask the question regarding Zen Pinball

athanasios_osfp 24 January, 2013 @ 15:19

Hi Chris,

I would like to download the Call of Duty World at War map packs especially for the zombie maps because of the fact that online multiplayer is not playable due to hackers. I don’t think the price (10 euros each and the game released 4 years ago) is right since i won’t be able to use the multiplayer maps! can we expect a sale or a price drop at least 50% off?


unlikely at the moment I am afraid, hopefully we will be able to bring you some discounts on CoD stuff soon but I won’t be able to confirm what products it will be



What time will the All-Stars offer start?

phil2008scherer 25 January, 2013 @ 00:48

I’m waiting for it too


You are correct, that is an error, I will raise it with the store team but unfortunately the price of the game is £49.99


Waiting for all-stars battle royale to get online as well!!I’m excited to try it out after this major price drop


Also would like to know when PS All-Stars Battle Royale offer starts?


Why hasn’t all-stars dropped yet? :(


Store ops have just informed me that this change will take place around 12 o’clock (GMT)


GTA IV Complete edition. Filesize 2063MB.

This can’t be right. Anybody bought and downloaded this?


It’s 14.3GB but your PS3 will need the extra space to ensure the download completes


Cheers for the heads up Chris Howe, appreciated


Hello again.

Is there any change there will be a discount at the following:
1.DLC for “Pain”
2.Plants vs zombies
3.It will also be nice to see a discount for the dlc of the pinball arcade and zen pinball 2


Hey Chris.

1. Will there be any February sales, like there was this month?

2. Last day of Borderlands 2 sale, 23rd Jan, I bought the game for 24.99, but a day earlier it was around 22.99 because of the PS+ price reduction, but on the last day as the store was updated and more B2 content was added (skins), then PS+ price red vanished although the B2 sale was still active, and I had to pay the price without PS+ reduction. Was this meant to be?


Hi Erkawest,

You should have still got a PS Plus discount on the 23rd as this was the last day it was on sale. Unforunately I can’t do anything from my side to help but customer services should be able to credit your wallet with the difference

Thanks for the answer, I have sent a mail to the support regarding my question, with a reference to your comment.


I Bought now All-Stars but i didn´t get the additional 10% for Plus Members.
I paid 24,99 Euro.
Is this correct?

Where is the 10% plus discount on battle allstars?

The price is still 49,99 and when i click on it.. it is 24,95 and not 22,50

same here, 25€ in the netherlands, i know its only 2,50 but hey, plus is plus right? :P i will wait till its fixed, its a small error so i aint even mad.

Yeah, and i have 23,54 in my wallet -_- so i hope they fix it


Hi all,

There does seem to be a little issue with it at the moment, I found that if you remove it from your basket and then go back to the product page, the correct Plus price should be shown and this is then the price you will pay at the checkout.

If you did not recieve your Plus discount please contact customer services who will be able to refund the difference

The checkout price is still 24,99. You dont get the plus discount. I tried it many times now but everytime i put it in the basket the price only changes from 49,99 to 24,99


Thx for the answer.
And how do i contact the customer service?

And like t i said i have 23,50 in my wallet so i wont be able to buy the game -.-


I Can’t even see play station all stars in the shop (GB)

Just wanted to say, thanks for the updates Chris!

At least somebody responds to the community!


There is a banner on the 2nd carousel of the store page which will link you to the product page but you may find that it is not displaying the correct price at present

Update i have it now with the plus discount! :)


Shows as £17.99 on product page. Add to basket and previews as £17.99. Proceed to checkout and shows as £19.99…


Apologies all, we seem to be having a few technical difficulties with this one. The store team are on the case and working hard to resolve it, I will update you as soon as I know more


Hi All,

If you are not getting the correct price:

Please try to add it to you cart, then once in there, remove it and click on Continue Shopping. This should take you back to the product page and the correct price should be available to you.


Games with (a PlayStation Plus) discount won’t soon be part of the Instant Game Collection, right? I assume it’s ‘safe’ to buy them as a PS Plus-member?


We can never say never but generally we try not to use games that we have had a discount on recently. If you are talking about PlayStation All Stars then no need to worry we have no plans for that in Plus anytime soon

i still get €25, i see the + sign with 22,50 but when i go to checkout its 25€

i have 23€ in my account so thats kinda… funny :P

Shows as £17.99 on the page – add it to my basket and it shows as £19.99.

I’m a PS+ subscriber.

SCEE really haven’t got a grip of this generation.. It’s quite embarrassing actually.

managed to download at 22,50€ now, thanks for the deal! :)


Will the price of Burnout Paradise’s DLC ever come down in price? I’m resentful at paying full price for 3 year old DLC


Chris, thanks for your answer! It was indeed about PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale. I already own the Vita-version (for free), guess I’m gonna buy the PS3-version too. :) Great deal!

gaming_munkei 25 January, 2013 @ 19:11

I recently seen advertised Final fantasy items on sale, the Item in question is Final Fantasy 7 (VII) I went to purchase this item today and is still £7.99 not as advertised 3.99 I do not live in the excluded countries, my other purchases are fine,

I have bought PSN points particularly for final fantasy 7 and other series I do not want to miss out on the offer.Hope you can shed some light thank you.

Hi, great sale. Just wondering when ps plus February will be announced.

I don’t know if this have already been commented on this blog update, but if you don’t own a ps3 and just want to buy the vita version of ps allstars you can log in to the online psn store on your Pc or vita browser and buy the game from the january sale section like I did at work earlier today and I was able to download it from my vita instantly! It’s actually 30% cheaper to buy both versions (buy the ps3 version and get the vita game as well) then just buying the vita standalone game from the Playstation store on your vita :-p

Happy_Camper_78 26 January, 2013 @ 08:42

Great deal on Borderlands 2, but unfortunately I missed out … I saw it to late :(


Meh, RDR and FF have already been on sale, more than once maybe even :s I just can’t get a break with these sales :d The few times I decided to wait for pricecut (Journey, ME1 and Okami on psn), I gave up and got them full price afterall..

I’d like to see more PSN exclusive games and dlc going on sale, full games are going to get reduced in price in retail stores anyway..

Borderlands 2 dlc is ok, although still expensive, but I have yet to beat the actual game and have others getting priority now so I think I’ll skip..




Hey Chris,
Does playstation all star end at 27th jan 23:59
or 28th jan 23:59
plz answer fast


@Chris Howe –

Thanks for the reply.
I purchased the RDR/Undead Nightmare bundles. Brilliant deal :)


@L_Alive_7 Chris posted this earlier in the week (reply to comment 92) –

Hopefully means it’s still available tomorrow until midnight.


Thank You so much for replying, really helped me out there.
Hopefully i`ll be picking it up soon :)

Chris, you said that the Playstation All Stars discount would end at the end of the day. On the product page it shows the discounted price, but when it’s added to the basket it no longer has the discount.

I seem to be facing with a problem when trying to purchase PS All Stars. PS Store keeps trying to charge me the full price without the discount. Please reply soon, the sale ends today. :'(

Yes I seem to b having the same problem wiv all
Stars, been having it for about an hour and been
trying to post on here but my posts wouldn’t go through in the app?

Plz fix this soon

Looks like people might b missing out due to
a lack of communication???

Ditto on the PS All Stars discount for me too. Am seeing it under the discounts area on store.’sen’.com but the discount isn’t applying… :(

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
