Nope. Already own Destiny. Mega disappointed in these Christmas deals so far.

Stop buying games when they come out then! :P

2.2

why? these discounted digital versions are still more expensive than what i paid on release day!

Great deal for Destiny, pity I already own it though.

how is £35 a great deal?

NorthernFusion 09 December, 2014 @ 13:55
3.2

The Digital Guardian Edition is a great deal, give me my head back, jeez.

Actually quite glad at how poor the selection has been thus far. I’m eating into my backlog of games without temptation.

Steve_Of_The_O 09 December, 2014 @ 11:40
4.1

Also, Digital Guardian Edition is showing as £59.99

4.2

came here to post this…. leaving satisfied…. previous two years i bought about 4-5 games each sale during the 12 Deals of Xmas thing…. zero interested on anything offered thus far this year… o_O

Steve_Of_The_O 09 December, 2014 @ 12:21
4.3

Price has been ninja corrected. £54.99

Already own Destiny, season pass discount would be nice.

Mario__4__Life 09 December, 2014 @ 11:42
5.1

It would be nice? No it would be a slap in the face of anyone who bought the season pass already. And i am not even one of them :D

Well at this rate, any discount or sale of any kind is a slap in the face of anyone having already bought the item in question.

Of course, it’s worse if the content being bought isn’t released yet.
Cue all episodes games (Telltale games, Broken Sword 5, and the likes).

The Resogun season pass was discounted before the 2nd DLC had even been announced, so why not for Destiny.

i hope for Far Cry 4

Mario__4__Life 09 December, 2014 @ 11:42
6.1

Bit early maybe? Tho I already saw it discounted here at GAMe to 40 bucks , only ps3 tho.

6.2

Why wouldn’t it? Far Cry 3 was on the 12 Deals of Christmas in December 2012. Nice to see you still cluelessly trolling Sale Posts on the blog even when it isn’t a Wednesday. Where were you during all the awesome weekend PSX posts?

please make a deal on ps plus

Mario__4__Life 09 December, 2014 @ 11:43
7.1

Why??? PS4 gamers LOVE to buy plus full price. The numbers have SKYROCKETTED

btw still waiting for my free ps plus month from your last years activate a vita and get a free month of plus “deal”.. no response or email about this from anyone for a year!! thats how awesome you are about deals

xxSamuraiGirlxx 09 December, 2014 @ 15:30

Oh yeah, I bought a vita in the timeframe and never got anything. I remember ppl posting in that blog post about not getting it either.

I decided to get a copy off eBay £27.50 (w/ Vanguard Armory DLC). I would have happily bought this if getting the trial version of Destiny didn’t bar me from buying the Guardian Edition. Owning the demo should not block you from upgrading to Guardian Edition.

Very disappointing!

9

Wonder when we’re going to get some good deals in the 12deals….

9.1

Danganronpa 2 was a good deal, though was on sale not that long ago. Last of Us, also a good deal. Though, most of the others haven’t been as good as they could’ve been.

9.2

Yesterday’s Child of Light was also a bargain. It was even cheaper than on Steam! And Danganronpa 2 was also quite cheap.

If they offered an upgrade to the Guardian Edition extras for £20, even using the physical disc, I’d probably be all over that. As it is, this digital edition on the PS4 is the same price as I paid for it at launch…

11

How is this a Christmas deal when I can buy a physical copy of the game with free delivery from zavvi.com (http://www.zavvi.com/games-ps4/destiny/11027852.html) for the same price?

NorthernFusion 09 December, 2014 @ 11:47
11.1

The real deal is the Guardian edition, since it has the expansion pass provided it is 54.99 rather than 59.99.

11.2

Don’t forget that currently when buying the digital PS3 version nets you a free upgrade to the PS4 version.
This makes the PS3 Guardian edition the sweet spot here.
Of course, you milage may vary…

HermaniosPollos 09 December, 2014 @ 11:45

PLEASE do Lego Marvel Superheroes next, thats the only game I really NEED :(

Destiny in itself was quite a disappointment, probably because I enjoy playing games by myself and that’s not really possible in Destiny.
Also I upped my account with €50,- on December 3rd when will I be getting my €10,- coupon?
I know it can take up to whatever the rules say but I haven’t opted in on promotions from Sony (or however they named it) so I’m kinda worried that because of that I might not get the code sent to me.

child of light and danganronpa 2 were good deals but today isnt great. im hoping for far cry 4 or AC unity. Last year AC4 was on for half price so im hopeful you guys will do the same for Unity. I definitely wont be paying full price for it given the reviews.

14.1

Given the response the player base has had to the two games, I reckon Ubi would be more likely to offer up Unity out of the two. But this year, they’ve also got Rogue as a series entry. Given people are still buying Unity and tend to pay more for current gen games, probably more likely still that Rogue would be the triple-A Ubi title this year, if any.

Cant help but feel a bit dis-heartened. Im not usually one to moan, but the only good deal so far was The Last of Us; and that’s probably because it’s already a cheaper game on the store. Let’s see a few £25’s on some good titles and I think we may have a few more happy people.

16

How about knocking a tenner off Driveclub PS+ edition please?

Wow, what a discount. I can buy a physical copy of Destiny much cheaper in just about every videogame selling store there is.

hey will you guys be updating the 20th anniversary sale tomorrow. Jumping Flash is a true classic you know, just saying… ;)

18.1

Surprised Fat Princess didn’t get a discount either.

19

how is this deal?

http://www.graingergames.co.uk/games/ps4/pf2-destiny

19,99 preowned :)

19.1

And let’s not forget that the company lapped up all the positive PR they got from not implementing DRM that would’ve stopped used game sales.

20

Vita-only owners have been REALLY spoiled with this years xmas deals >:( the regular sale recently was heaps and bounds better, and EA gave us nfs for free. It was also a severe punch in the goolahunks the way we were trolled by HDN for only 2 (lucky) countries :(

20.1

Wondering if they had a list of Vita games and were like “we’ll give them an eastern game, but we don’t want to give them one that they really want, we’ll given them this random thing. Except for these two countries, they never get anything nice” (which I think is kinda true when it comes to plus titles and such)

21

It was my destiny to pass on this deal. (poor joke I know, pls no bully….)

NorthernFusion 09 December, 2014 @ 12:04
21.1

I bully.

que pokemon soundtrack

21.3

i registered to bully

Guys please tell any chance for far cry4, drive club? So far the dealls is not so good

23

No deals to be found here so far, not really interested in football or space shooters. Plus the games are more expensive here than anywhere else in the world (UK) Help us out sony give us something juicy as a vetran Pre-order PS1 player i would have expected more for a 20 year anniversary

23.1

To say “no deals to be found here so far”, seems a bit much. There have been a few good deals, not great, but not all have been terrible. Though can totally get behind you on the anniversary thing, having been in the PS ecosystem since ’96, and having had every system except the GO and PS4.

Only if street fighter x tekken was crossbuy :(

25

The fifth Vita deal is for a game that’s been on PS Plus? Plus subscribers need Christmas love too :(

25.1

All have beein in earlier IGC and/or in recently sales :(

Oh yeah, let’s never discount any game that’s been on PS+ ever, that’s a sound business practice.

26

Just bought it and started downloading…this game is worth 45 euros and not 70 with the content it gives, that is why i was waiting for a good price drop!

In the Netherlands SF X T is sold at 40 EUR at the stores that do sell the game and I find it a rip-off but for 8.09 EUR I was happy to pay for this title as I only own a ps vita the sales have been a big hit on my spending budget :P :(( and the backlog at the moment is not at all fun anymore

Terkelthefrogs 09 December, 2014 @ 12:13

I really hope that Shadow of morder will come on sale

28.1

I just picked up shadow of mordor on Amazon for 30 euro! Ac unity, dragon age or far cry 4, deals I would bite your hand off for!

WayfaringWalrus 09 December, 2014 @ 12:18

I know this has already been decided months ago and that I’ve got no chance, but I was just wondering if there was any chance of Madden 15 or NBA 2k15 being added to the 12 deals of Christmas/another sale in the near future? Pretty please?

NBA 2K14 made the list last year for the PS3. Its a possibility 2k15 shows up this time for the PS4.

I really really really hate when they put the same game on special within 2 weeks apart. i think its retarted.

I bought Destiny as part of Black Friday’s one day special, and now its on a 2 day special….. does this mean its soon on PS+?

The least they could do is sell the season pass as a good price… its a bit overpriced by standard.

Awesome game, i recommend it to anyone, just dont expect the length of normal MMO’s.

Destiny physical is cheaper than “christmas deal”

another boring deal i got no intrest in

Great. I would buy Destiny if a) the log in in PSN store would actually work (I can’t access my PS4 for a couple of days now, and the web store is broken) and b) I could buy it. At the moment I cannot buy the Digital Guardian edition, since I already own Destiny. Meaning that I donwloaded the demo.

Fix it, Sony, pls, before you make the same broken offer twice in two weeks. This is ridiculous.

Ha ha ha ha. What a load of mince. I got destiny at tesco for £12 with club card points. Let me know when the ‘deals’ begin. On a separate note BIG up for EA and the 3 free games they gave us.

34.1

I also have to give my thumbs up for EA and their presents!

34.2

Yeah, those EA gifts were awesome. I’d have never expected something like this from EA :)

34.3

Still a ripoff even for £12.

A big NO. Next…

So I tried getting the Digital Guardian Edition (I loved the trial/demo for PS4), but the store said I can’t buy it because I already own the game. When I check the normal version, the store lets me add it to basket no problem. I tried this through a browser, because I’m at work at the moment and can’t access my PS4 for obvious reasons :P Any ideas what to do?

jamie-sixtyfour 09 December, 2014 @ 12:52
36.1

No idea mate, but I was in the same boat. I decided to go with the disc version. Although the saving isn’t as good as the digital guardian edition :/

This same problem was in the earlier sale, too. Apparently Sony don’t want to sell the DGE. Or anything else, at least to me, since their online store sign-in is broken.

I guess it would be possible to buy the PS3 version and turn it into PS4 one. But nobody from Playstation has bothered to confirm that this is in deed still a viable option. Well, it’s not like I don’t have enough games to play as is.

Another one I will skip.
The normal version of Destiny is currently cheaper on several websites, however that is as physical copy.
Also it isn’t really that long time ago you had savings on Destiny.

Hope the next 2 days deal interests me more.
Also do you put more deals up tomorrow?

Same price as it was inn the Black Friday sale not even two weeks ago.

Looking like this year will be a little lighter on my wallet of nothing else shows up. 2012 gave us both AC3 and FarCry3 despite being reasonably new, here’s hoping for a similar offering from Ubisoft this year.

Every single idiot one of us was fooled into buying Destiny. No thank you, please try again. R500 ain’t much of a bargain in my lexicon. Every special has been utter dirt so far. Sony, is this really the best your tight-ass can muster? Come ON treat us with a real game and a great special you cheap sons of garbage collector!

39.1

I didn’t buy Destiny. The fact that it’s geared for online gaming was a deal-breaker for me; I much prefer single player.

Speak for yourself, mate. It just happened to come with the PS4 I bought second hand. I played it a couple of times with a friend, but I didn’t really like it, so I sold it on. Also, I think “utter dirt” might be a bit OTT, no? I thought TLoU remastered for £18 was pretty good :-)

RodrigoSharingan 09 December, 2014 @ 13:11

I can buy the same game in disc version cheaper in any store… What a great deal… Not. What a rip off.

Lame sale… again. The only decent one was the first deal. Since then, it’s been sheer disappointment.

AmorousBadger1 09 December, 2014 @ 13:21
42

Oh boy, today I can buy Destiny for slightly more than I could pay for it in the shops!

shredderbenjamin 09 December, 2014 @ 13:33

Its been a bit [MODERATED]-sandwich so far and this deal is certainly no exception. How often I see deals hosted by Steam, Origin and even PSN US and think “what have us limeys done to deserve such a severe dry-piping?”. Sorry Sony, I assure you my heart will always belong to you but more shaftings like this are likely to rupture what is left of my tailpipe. And by tailpipe I mean ‘christmas spirit’ of course…

44

So far the only game i was slightly interested was The Last of Us for PS4 even though i already got it on ps3. I never saw the deal though, so i guess i missed it? Either way, ill wait till they come up with some discount for players who already bought the game.

Destiny in my eyes was the worst deal you guys came up with so far. The price is just to close to retail.
Im acctualy waiting to trow my money at the ps store for some games for ps4, yet you guys arent supplying.

44.1

The first deal was the 1-3 December mate, every two days (so every odd day) from the first there’s a new set.

“ill wait till they come up with some discount for players who already bought the game”
If that was going to happen, it would’ve been at/near launch, not all these months later.

45

Somebody told me that the DLC characters come bundled with the Vita version of SF x Tekken, and that buying the Vita version gets you access to the extra characters on PS3, too. Can anyone confirm or deny this? The fate of my wallet depends upon it!

45.1

I can confirm this. Got the vita version through plus, already had physical version. Plus version came with the dlc and found out I could download the PS3 versions for free, was a nice surprise.

45.2

@frimo_online Sold!

Good lord, the sense of entitlement in these comments. Come on, people may have only just bought a PS4 and don’t have Destiny, so for them it’s a good deal. Sony doesn’t owe anyone anything, surely just because the deals don’t appeal to you doesn’t mean its crap.

46.1

My thoughts exactly. I’ve had my PS4 since around May and I still don’t have Destiny. I’d like to change that with this sale which is (to my knowledge at least) a bit cheaper to the Black Friday sale.

How is it a “good deal” for those that don’t own destiny? You can get a physical copy of Destiny much, much cheaper than digital
So where is the deal here? TLoU was a good deal because it was cheaper than physical, since then “Bleh”. At least EA bought something to the table..

46.3

@Tee_Doff, I’ve also seen the game go for cheaper for a limited time somewhere and you might find the game for a very good price. I’m looking to get the Digital Guardian Edition, which includes Season Pass and a few other (vanity) items. So if you can find physical copy of Destiny for under 35€, then you have made a bargain (+ season pass 35€ <= 70€). Still, you'd miss out on the extra trinkets, some people might prefer the physical copy, someone doesn't mind buying the game used… If I walk to the store (where I live) I can get the game for a little under 60€, which is better than the normal digital cost, but no way near a good deal on the game itself. I guess the point I'm trying to make is that this kind of discount, from the PS-Store, competes with the bargains you can find elsewhere. Now, if you like your like your coffee black and with sugar, that's fine by me. I prefer to add milk and hold the sugar :)

I thought it was really great of Bungie and playstation to allow us to buy Destiny on our PS3, then get the PS4 version for Free, And the PS3 version cost a whole £5 less as well, what a good deal, now IF Only this blog, known for advertising most every game and shouting about discounts would of actually mentioned it, I could of saved a fiver, more importantly had PS3 version to play on a spare account in bed etc.. Why didn’t you ‘feel like’ letting us know about this great offer, back then, God knows you’s certainly covered Every other aspect of the game, yes I’m Still mad, getting taken for granted by scee is growing very old.

47.1

Two words:

Cash. Money.

47.2

if it was anything like the ff14 upgrade deal, the ps3 copy would have been deactivated so no spare copy.

Meh, worst deal so far IMO. Even if I hadn’t already owned the game (and sold it on), I wouldn’t be tempted at this price. Oh well, someone else might be happy with this – keep the offers coming, fellas!

49

So unwanted posts just vanish now?, no more awaiting moderation they just go, nice.. Again then, though original might turn up in meantime making me look obsessed, like they do (strange that) just saying how good it was of this blog to Not let us in on the free upgrade on this games launch, which also would of cost less.. though they kinda mentioned Everything else about it, many, many times, like I’m doing maybe…

Hey dude – those double posts just make you look obsessed…. :-D

49.2

It’s all a conspiracy I tell ye… Anyway I guess I may be a little more upset than usual concerning Destiny today, bad enough going online earlier to a ‘collect reward’ message from postmaster, purple package with ‘thanks for supporting Destiny’/bieng a mug buying digital gaurdian ed.. so thought nice, must be something ok, three BLUE lvl 20 armour bits and two shards, and though I have three different characters/classes just one lousy reard, blah, so seeing it as Christmas deal after that xp.. just love to hate this game, but also tp play it for All the downs it gives.

Haha, I love it when games make people complain about them being a chore – but it doesn’t deter them from playing! Dark Souls does that to me. Good on you for having a sense of self-irony, mate – and merry xmas! :-)

50

Destiny… Wow… Great…
It was on the first day of Black Friday sale one about a week ago and it’s on sale again?
I hope there won’t be any other games from Black Friday sale as the next 12 deals of Christmas…
