Not bad… but I’m waiting for better SALE :)

1.1

The post Christmas sale, if they run it this year, is /usually/ pretty good. Deal 12 should be pretty good, as last years was TLOU for less than half price (with season pass), if I recall correctly.

1.2

Indeed and in 2012 was a great sale as that was when I got Far Cry 3 which was Deal 12

First! lol

LOL! I was first :D

Must have been by a split second lol

2.3

If you look, you missed by an entire minute.

Haha what a terrible deal on Battlefield. They stuck the Premier Edition to make it seem distinctive to what you can get in retail. Christmas deals continue to disappoint…

3.1

BF4 on Amazon is £33.56, BF4 Premium on PS Store is £39.99. In what way is BF4 + Premium for £29.99 a “terrible deal”?

Victor, BF4 PS4 on Amazon FR this morning was at 29.99.

Any chance of the PS4 version of The Wolf Among Us going on sale during these twelve days?

I’m hoping for walking dead season2 vita. It was on ps4 black friday deal so got my fingers crossed it’s one of the deals coming up!

i was hoping for wolf among us today.
It wasn’t in the last sale and the free episode on iOS seemed like a good game.
Telltale have overprice their games. Telltale can’t afford to do that.

4.3

i would love for The Wolf Among Us to be on sale as well ( PS4 ) already own it on the PC but would like to add it to my PS4 library

A company really for the players would have addressed the game of thrones pricing by now.

5.1

It’s not Sony/Playstation that decide the price for digital games,mindless it’s their own.
Digital pricing is down to the publisher, so you need to talk to Telltale.
Better yet,mod what I did got GoT and TFTB. Get a $50 US card (cost me around £30) and by the season passes on the US store. GOT is $25 and TFTB is $20 so it ended up costing me around £25 for the pair, with a little left over.
Problem solved.
And you don’t have to wait for EU releases.

Except sony set the retail price. Telltale set a price, then Sony decide on a markup. If they decided they wanted to markup the ps4 more than the rest that explains price. Also if it was purely telltales fault then PlayStation should be protecting their players from that.

TroubleMaker411 05 December, 2014 @ 12:02
5.3

Well, no. There will not be a markup after the fact. Telltale will have to pay a percentage to sell on the platform.
It’s not Sony’s job to protect you from inflated prices. telltale are hardly the first people to do this. Look at any price in the Coming a Soon section of the store and tell me they are not extortionate. That’s the actual RRP the game is being sold for. Sorry mate, it’s just how it is. It’s nothing to do with Sony, Playstation, or the store team. It’s all down to the publisher.

what happened with the extra PS+ discount?

6.1

Either you should be specific with your question or read better, seriously. If you mean for the PS4, say it.

One_Shot_KiIIer 05 December, 2014 @ 11:36

What? £35 for the ps4 thats not good for people that already own the premium content, will there be a single game price on BF4?

TroubleMaker411 05 December, 2014 @ 11:40
7.1

Why would you own the Premium content, but not the game?

One_Shot_KiIIer 05 December, 2014 @ 11:44
7.2

you can go off a game for a while then you might want it again lol

TroubleMaker411 05 December, 2014 @ 11:47
7.3

Fair enough, I suppose.

Am I the only one waiting for the PS+ discount ? for this 12 deals of Christmas sale ?

it was on the last of us but not the last 2

8.2

PS4, literally the only one without. Do you even read?

8.3

I think he means a discount on ps+ subscription. I know that’s what I’m hoping for

Any real deals happen this year.

nothing here for me, roll on deal #4

Meh… Previous deals were ok. This is Sony not even trying. Battlefield 4 + Premium on PC from Origin is 35€ as a default price, on a sale it would be some 10€

What are you talking about? At this point it’s 35€ on origin , but its in a sale. Normaly you would pay 49€

Kinky_Friedman 05 December, 2014 @ 14:26
11.2

Why on earth are you comparing PC to PS4 prices? Different platforms, different price structures.

11.3

Why wouldn’t it be fair to compare them? It’s competition. If Xbox would have 20€ cheaper games, I’d make the switch immediately.

And Wooouter, I checked and looks like you’re right. I just remember buying it for 35€. My bad, I was wrong. In that case, it looks like EA is to blame for the ‘meh’ sales price.

12

Sooooo….
I originally did the PS3 to PS4 digital upgrade when BF4 first came out.

In a previous sale BF4 I got Battlefield Premium PS3 version, and this was crossbuy with the PS4 version, which I happily use.

When both PS3 & PS4 version of “Battlefield 4 Premium Edition” first came on the PSN store, both PS3 & PS4 versions said purchased under my account, presumably because I’d bought premium in the sale, and perhaps as I had the digital version of BF4.

So my point is, is BF4 Premium Edition basically crossbuy? If so then all PS4 owners should get the much cheaper (almost half price with the PS+ discount) PS3 version and then the PS4 version will unlock too.

Any one notice similar in their accounts?

A lot of those free upgrades were limited time. Otherwise I would def buy at 19.99. I’m only interested in the single player so the extras are a bit pointless to me.

12.2

i grabbed premium for the PS3 version just over a month ago when it was on sale as i heard it was cross buy and it is, should still be as far as im aware, tho im not sure if it’s crossbuy when bundled with the game

These 50% deals sucks.They are like the normal sales. 12 deals of christmas should be special and be 70% off.

13.1

By the time they convert for our region, times that by 2 or 3, it’s pretty much guaranteed you can pick it up non sale for cheaper or close to.

I think I bought Danganronpa 2 for that price in that last sale

Are we actually going to see any of the latest titles? TLOU is 6 months old & BF4 is great but it’s years old now? Serious gamers will have already owned these titles. What about the newer releases? Come on SONY actually gift the PS4 owners with some real treats – we showed loyalty upgrading didn’t we? we saw how the PS3 got amazing offers while the PS4 struggled for any games for nearly a year – give us some of the top Xmas titles like LBP3? FAR CRY 4? AC UNITY? GTA V? COD AW? FIFA 15? How about some real bargains?…..falling on deaf ears I presume!

15.1

“Years”, you mean, like, one years? Mate. You must be on crack to EXPECT games less than a month old would be on sale. If they are, then it’d be nice, but seriously, give them time to accrue some actual revenue.

Even gamers on crack wouldn’t say something that foolish.

15.3

have some patience, the last 2 years the final few deals have been really good and on fairly recent games, the first few deals aren’t usually that great tho people still want the games so why not put them on sale

@Fred/@Chris/@ANYONE

Any news WHEN Freedom Wars will get update 1.21 in Europe?

We are waiting for it way too long already and sadly this patch is very important. We can’t play with American and Asian players… do any of SCEE employees tried to even play it?! You can’t imagine how big blow it is for European version! You are killing the game! Each day discourage more and more gamers to play it.

I can’t believe this is still an issue! It has killed the game, so glad I got rud of it when I did.
Yet another reason why PSN should be universal instead of 3 regions.

16.2

@Archacus

I like when I see your name on the blog, always fighting for us Vita users. For game where the online global leaderboard was supposed to be a key mechanic, published by Sony, you’d think they’d be on top of it. Sometimes, I don;t even know why SCEE pretend to acknowledge the Vita. They should just hand over all Vita services to SCEA where possible.

@ThugETH
I do like Freedom Wars (even without multi it still is good game)… and I don’t commend re-selling games.

But it is just me, everyone has the right to do with his/her copy of game whatever he/she want.

Ya it still is the issue… and I’m having hard time actually believing that someone can mess up this much. Maybe they are not even aware that unless regions have the same version of game they can’t play with each other… it would be typical for SCEE :/ nowadays I get the feeling that all they can do is pat their’s backs telling to themselves how allegedly good job they are doing. :/

I planned to return to Freedom Wars after whole week :/ and suprise suprise… my friend tells me that I can’t do that because of patch issue :/

First lack of advertising… THERE WAS NOTHING! Now killing the game with this patch :/ I don’t know what the hell are those guys thinking…

@frimo_online
Thank you for your kind words, but I didn’t anything for them. I really didn’t.

But you are right… due to p...

Thank you for your kind words, but I didn’t anything for them. I really didn’t.

But you are right… due to poor choicment of panatopticons game is broken. The main thing for Freedom Wars was supposed to be fighting against other PC (or CONs like they are called in West version). It works for Japan… but here in West… is broken like hell

There are hardly any changes in ranking, Hong Kong will stay on the top forever! Mainly because the most important factor is number of players, take a look at average numbers for
1-10 – 5613 players for each Panopticon within range
11-20 – 1798 players for each Panopticon within range
21-30 – 747 players for each Panopticon within range
31-40 – 230 players for each Panopticon within range
41-50 – 90 players for each Panopticon within range

Instead of 50 PC there should have been 8 like… for each region. Would make more sense.

Sony even trying to give us a good deal? this prices are madness they only look “cheap” cos the store prices are a a RIP OFF!!!

Stop complaining about Battlefield 4 and give Danganronpa 2 a chance – THIS is a good deal!

18.1

It WAS a good deal when it was on sale a really short while ago.

It IS because, the deal in november didn’t get 20% for Plus-Members.

19

You have been spamming my inbox quite a lot lately..But you’re gonna have to better in order for me to even think of buying something. Especially when we’re talking about digital games and the so-called Christmas deals. Bottom line I don’t own yet a Ps4(don’t even when I’m going to) and I don’t care about battlefield. Next,,,not that I am too hopeful anyway..This all looks fishy to me.

Chris/Fred, any news on a discount on PS+?

I know you won’t want to say yes/no 100% either way, how about a best guess (I won’t hold you to it). I’m floundering in the dark a bit here; my Plus has now expired and if you don’t think it’ll be in the sale I’ll just resubscribe now, and it’ll be an extra Plus purchase for you, simply by answering this post :) .Any hints/clues would be appreciated.

20.1

Does anyone know why the “+” symbol is still by name, it makes me look like a liar lol. My account expired yesterday — is there a delay on it? Would be nice if there was a delay on games too, but no, I can’t use those!

Well you might find that automatic update will take funds out of your account or make a credit card charge to renew. If you go into your account details and see if this has happened and make sure you don’t have automatic renew on your plus.

20.3

Thanks Izorpo, I’d already turned it off luckily.
I can’t play the Plus games now, so it’s odd the symbol is still showing.

Nothing for me so far in the crimbo deals but hopefully something will peak my interest in the other 9 to come, some offers on dc universe memberships would be nice :)

NBA 2K15 ???

And it got off to such a good start too

Pity Battlefield 4 isn’t just the standalone version as I already got a retail copy and the digital dlc for it. Was waiting for the digital version on it’s own or at least cheaper – compared to The Last of Us the deals are getting worse and worse. Hopefully, things will pick up or otherwise I think alot of people including myself will just pass on them :(

The deals have been awful. Jeez louise.

£18 for TLOU Remastered after a few months is awful?

25.2

Awfully good?

Bahhh why didn’t you guys did the same for last of us instead of F1 game for ps3? It was disapointing offer then for ps3 in my view…

Well, this was the last year I get myself HYPED for 12DoC

Everyone who has a Vita and don’t buy Danganronpa….you know that Santa kills a reindeer.
For those who don’t buy a Vita for Danganronpa Santa just beats his reindeer extra hard :(

Buy Danganronpa, save the reindeer and Santas soul.

At least a reindeer taste great!

@Rochala
Well it’s not like Santa shares…that big hairy meany :(

Except that on the 5th of November Danganronpa 2 was on sale…and cheaper

Awesome. I was hoping Danganronpa 2 would appear on the 12 deals. I didn’t buy it when it was on sale before because I didn’t have the first one then.

These prices are hardly real ‘deals’ sorry to say.

TLOU Remastered for 25 Euro with additional 10% discount was a good deal in the first batch. But after that… Lets hope the real deals return with the upcoming 4th till 12th deal.

30.1

I actually traded in a few games to get GTA5 1 which was TLOU for ps4 and i got 25 euro for it from extravision only got 5 euro for Watchdogs lol

Kinky_Friedman 05 December, 2014 @ 14:29
30.2

I disagree. £16 for BF4 premium edition on PS3/£30 on PS4 is a cracking deal (especially with easily available discounted credit).

Back in August we were promised 50% off PS+ when buying Driveclub, when do we get our vouchers?
http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/08/20/driveclub-pre-order-offers-and-cover-art-revealed/

31.1

Jawad has previously stated (on numerous occasions) it should be available in-game somewhere.

31.2

@frimo_online I looked for it everywhere. There is also no info how to claim it. If it is somewhere it’s very well hidden.

31.3

Well now I’ve read that they cancelled PS+ discount long time ago. That sucks.

Maybe next year BF: Hardline Premium for 35€, but this is a lame deal. Come on Sony, give us something interesting like deal #1 !

So the last deal for vita was One Piece Unlimited World Red which had already been a deal of the week a couple of months ago and now Danganronpa 2 is the vita deal and yet on the 5th of November it was on sale…I know because I bought Danganronpa 2 then.

Could you please offer items that haven’t been recently offered as a deal of the week? I guess Monday it will be Disagea 4 or one of the Atelier games…since they have all been on offer recently

bestoftheturks 05 December, 2014 @ 13:53

Is an AC: Black Flag deal coming or should I go get it somewhere else?

I picked up Assassins Creed Black Flag on PS4 for around £17.99 at Grainger. I’m not sure if they ship outside the UK but its worth checking out if they do

34.2

I bought that in last years 12 deals and could then get ps4 version for £10, cost £19.99 last year in 12 deals, so if they repeat it would expect a few complaints, also got season pass for ps4 for half price ages ago in some sale they had, myself I am thinking they’ll have cod back on again, same as they done last December, PS3 vers but could buy upgrade if you wanted, different game now but still only been out same time as ghosts was last year, so I would say prob not for black flag, though as with cod you can’t rule out the newer one, lol at the ‘on crack cos it’s just come out’ posts above, dahrr. attitudes like that just help companies be mean, sheepish much?.

Wasn’t Danganronpa 2 the Vita deal of the week like a fortnight ago?

** that was a rhetorical question — it was! **

Don’t get me wrong, the Danganronpa games are great and all, but come on Sony, put your minds to it and give us something fresh, please?

35.1

I actually kind of like that: I didn’t buy it then because I hadn’t played the first one. I’m happy to have another opportunity to buy the game on sale.

36

put Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment on sale please! it’s on sale in USA already

37

put Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment on sale please! it’s on sale in US already

38

Bring this deal; PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition!!!!

39

So was looking at buying a US psn code, for Christmas pressie to send to brother, the ones I seen that people here talk about looked a bit fishy, cd key saying they may need to do a fraud investigation before sending it etc, but just random, anyway if someone can point me in safest direction and give me idea of price for a$50 code I would be grateful…

39.1

amazon

NorthernFusion 06 December, 2014 @ 01:07
39.2

Play-Asia is the easiest way (with no need to make fake addresses unlike Amazon US), but there’s a little bit of a mark up, not much though, and it’s stress free. You can just use PayPal or a UK card and you’re sorted.

I used cardscodes.com, I had to wait about 1 hour to get my code but it worked great and I will use them again. Payment with credit card orpPayPal

40

Does this tell you if your post gets accepted still?, or do they just vanish now.

40.1

Oh, it’s there. Just vanished though when I posted,

41

Game’s latest ‘sale’ looks ok, buy Far Cry4 , Driveclub and TLoUR (digital code) for £349.99 and they give you a free ps4, messin, but to buy those three games would of cost just on £160 on psn, so that would make ps4 worth £190? Or my math head on wrong today.. think there’s better options though, especially if you have a PS3/360 to trade in, at least some things ‘seem’ to have changed, now IF only psn pricing management got That memo…

42

could of been worse….could of been a C O D game

43

Hi.

The 12 deals of Christmas is only for games or can we get a sale in Ps Plus Subscription?

shaun_turismo5 05 December, 2014 @ 15:44
44

Here to hoping that if they do put the new cod on it comes after Thursday as me and my girlfriend download games off the same account we dont buy many games so £30 for 2 copys would be great value

Danganronpa was already on sale last time

46

Already have the battlefield premuim :)

Dear staff, there is an error in PSStore PlayStation 20th Anniversary Theme for PS3 cant be downloaded via www or PS3 store, other versions works fine.

gonna get me some dangenranpen.

SO frustrating, why isn’t Premium itself on sale?

I’m tempted to pick up Danganronpa 2, but I’m getting the first game for xmas so I have no idea if I’ll like it or not :s
