Repeating deals from last year? We got TWD for the Vita on one of last year’s christmas deals and it was around the same price then as well.


Looking back at it, it was actually cheaper when on offer last year due to the PS+ discount.

It was actually cheaper with a PS+ discount in 2013. ;)

it’s been cheaper in prior sales though (TWD vita has been on sale for between £4-6 previously)

*waits for everyone to say they bought The Evil Within for £2.79 during Black Friday*


Thanks to tip off in last deals post, i grabbed limited ed from Game for £22.99, really happy with it, has some 3d effect cover and includes a dlc of some sort.. Obviously scee are not stupid here, they offer us a ‘epic’ sale But then stretch it out over 24 days, most of the deals are going to be not so good, then people will post negative, without noticing just how scee Are running this ‘sale’ normal people are going to believe the negative posts is a state of entitlement, so, kind of two birds with one stone scenerio, for scee damage control that is, ie get away with milking pr, offer one, maybe two ok deals, make most people look like moaners and themselves like all sweet n innocent, though most people only grasp a part, not the whole when playing the ‘entitled/whiner’ card, (not saying your doing that btw, ps soz for hijacking your reply).

+1 to you both

hey solarwind glad to be of help !!!!


Hmmm. Getting there I think. Best deal so far, but you can do better Playstation!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the last few “deals”. Cheers sony.

I got the last of us remastered for £18 in these Christmas deals, that was the best deal so far.


Forgot about that one, that was the first right? xD Yeah good shout. I stand corrected. UP YOUR GAME PLAYSTATION! :P

I would rather have the MGS deal in UK, the Evil Within deal is a joke.

Oh and I bought TWD for less than that about 18 months ago

Would have definitely bought Metal Gear, sucks to be in the UK.


Hi chris what is happen to rogue download deal their is no file size on the download

Any news on AC Rogue? I Still can’t download it!!..

That sucks…

Hmm, GAME were offering their Limited Edition version of The Evil Within for £22.49 on PS4, yesterday.


Though I might have given Bound By Flame a go, at that pricepoint, if it was available here.

I hope there will be more indie games for PS4 on the 12-day sale. As a hardcore PS4 gamer I already bought most of these deals on disc (so did most PS4 owners I know). Most deals are good for people who recently got a PS4 but not so much for hardcore gamers unfortunately.

I hope we’ll see more discounts on indie games and DLC besides digital copy’s of retail games. There are a couple of indie games that interest me and would definitely buy them if they were on sale (Defense Grid 2/Unfinished Swan/Castlestorm).

The Unfinished Swan was offered last year in the 12 days of crap sales albeit in a bundle that came with another game (that most people bought on release so most people were locked out of the sale)

Buying the PS3 version of Unfinished Swan meant the PS4 version was free


Hi Chris what happened to rogue download no file size

I really want to get on board with digital but even your sale price for The Evil Within on PS4 is more expensive than the standard price from Amazon and that’s been the case with just about every deal so far.

Wrong? Same price The evil within ps4 and ps3… I have ps4, but less 25 will pick up ps3 version…


Season 2 or The Wolf Among Us would have been a more inspired Vita deal.

Ok got it, you’re just going to repeat everything from the Black Friday sale aren’t you?


Still not Diablo 3 for the PS4 as a Christmas deal?

It was in the Black Friday sale at the end of November. But it’s probably coming in these deals, seeing as they’ve been repeating Destiny, Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within from that sale already…


The Evil Within £22.49 retail at way pay more for a download copy with no resale value


I went into game today and the price is £54.99 for The Evil Within on PS4, So really it being £24.99 isnt to bad, with it being £30 off retail price.

I really want to see GTA 5 ps4 on one of these deals its still £54.99 in-store at game and its the same on psn i think. so if they do a discount and sell it for £24.99 I would so buy it, as I had it digital on ps3 im not going to pay £54.99 for a game I have already had

I know, it’s off-topic but:
When will you fix the Costume Club-pass for Project Diva F 2nd so people can download the DLC they actually paid for?

X_Blood_Curse_X 15 December, 2014 @ 11:40

The Evil Within is £22.50 on amazon right now :/

Happy with the evil within deal – I can still get it (slightly) cheaper on amazon – but for ease of owning it digitally – I’m there. This is up there with the day 1 deal :)

so far, out of the 7 deals there was practically NONE that even made me consider a purchase, lol. Come on guys, you can do better than that!

still time for a few more games though. :)


You want us to buy more games after the assassins creed rogue does not show up in download list and does not download?
many reported this and zero feedback…
I did not complain with driveclub because of some feedback but nothing?

“You want us to buy more games after the assassins creed rogue does not show up in download list and does not download?” – Bolton_Nor_ks

This more than anything else is why buying digital fails. If I buy a game from a retailer or online retailer and there is something wrong with the disc etc I have recourse to return and replace the item. Buying Sony digital means I do not and as a result I’m at the mercy of SCEE to sort the issue.

As Sony sends emails stating “thank you for your purchase” there should be an id number for the item in that email. Write it down, call and give them that number (its your proof you purchased the item) oh and ask to speak to a supervisor.

Bloodborne for a tenner, please?

best joke I’ve heard all day.

nothing here for me, roll on deal #9

Do you actually plan to put items on sale that haven’t been offered over the last few months and priced cheaper in those previous sales?

Also offering digital games that match the pricing of physical sale items at Game isn’t really a bargain as I could buy the games at Game and…check this out, play them and then sell or trade them in at Game, Grainger… or oh that nifty place ebay for other games

Wow, what a bad day for sales.

US week 3 sale tomorrow. Hope there’s something good on there.

supersmith2500 15 December, 2014 @ 11:53

Walking Dead? I’ll pass. Already beat it and owned it. I’m still waiting for Shinovi Versus to get the discount.

zalwelgoedgaan 15 December, 2014 @ 11:53


Yawn… AGAIN!! :-(


Cheapo Driveclub please!


I’m getting sick of hearing the same complaints on every sale.
“I’ve already bought it for a lower price!”
“You can get it cheaper at [insert retailer]!”
“WTH, that’s not the game I want!”

Guess what? Then this sale is not for you. If you already got the game, or you’re not interested in the game, it’s not for you. You can get it cheaper at, for example, Amazon? Good for you, buy it there then.
You act like Sony have committed to put on sales with THE BEST GAMES and LOWEST PRICE guarantees.

Hint: They haven’t. Get over it.

I liked your comment.


I think people are upset because these deals are supposed to be special deals and so far they’re just very average at best.


The thing is everyone is entitled to complain if they want to, (especially on the interwebs!) and if people comment saying you can get a game cheaper from somewhere else then surely that is a good thing to let other gamers know.

Lets say I was going to buy Evil Within for £25 in this sale and I notice that someone has posted above that you can get the limited edition version for £22.50 the way I see it this person would have done me a favour by not only saving me some money but also upgrading to the limited edition version.

Either way just ignore (Reading not hearing unless you are using a text to audio program) the complaints, and just concentrate on looking out for bargains that suit you and ignore everything else. :)

I’m hoping for a sale on GTA 5, but I have a feeling that won’t happen.

Mr_James_Gibson 15 December, 2014 @ 13:57

Naaa, don’t you dare think that way.
Coz I want it too xD


we want GTA 5 PS4 for £24.99 :-)

Or for free if purchased on previous generation

What’s next??
Fifa 14 £19.99 with 1% ps plus discount
ohh!!!! The anticipation is killing me

zalwelgoedgaan 15 December, 2014 @ 12:20

*Fifa 13



£22.49 in game, and you have the luxury of being able to sell it if you want to get some of your money back.
$ony are so out of touch it’s laughable now.


I don’t think it’s just down to Sony (although they will take a cut) as in fairness they have to answer to the game companies who actually produced and own the games as they have to agree the prices with Sony for their games. The online price of some of the games on the PSN are out of touch, but there are still quite a few bargains to be had from time to time.

So far the only REAL GOOD deal was The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 in sale nr. 1

After that a lot of lackluster discounts, where the games were even cheaper on sales before. Whats up with no PS+ extra discount lately BTW?

Hoping the last 5 deal updates will become better again… What would be great is if PS+ year subscription would be under the deals, 12 months for 37.50 Euro would rock. I got just over 40 Euro in my account and need to renew around the 20th this month!

One_Shot_KiIIer 15 December, 2014 @ 12:29

I bought The Evil Within on Wednesday from Game for £22.49 on Disc & the difference is I can trade it once I’ve completed it….. so £25 for it Digital is clearly not a deal!!!!!!!!!!


The Evil Within PS4 cheaper at GAME and Amazon but i know the sheep with find a good excuse to say this is a good deal :P

#4theplayers ( just not on the PS EU Store )


Awww, I rather buy the MGS V… :(


Can someone tell me this deals its for what psn? Bcuz i check on America and i don’t found any of this deals. Even the deal for alien i wanna to buy it and i don’t found it. Its for all psn or only for specific country?

One_Shot_KiIIer 15 December, 2014 @ 12:35

Europe only!


These deals are territory-based. You can find the US Blog here:

Their current Christmas deals can be found here:

…week 3 details for the US are announced on the US Blog today :)


…correction: announced tomorrow!


I don’t see this deals on my psn why?

zalwelgoedgaan 15 December, 2014 @ 12:37

Dude, why would you even WANT these deals?

Maybe because you got an American PSN/PS+ account and you’re commenting on the EU blog with EU Xmas deals?

If you want these, go create an EU PSN/PS+ account, get some prepaid cards to put credit on it and start buying.


Yeah i can’t see Bound by Flame for some reason.

Please fix the Assassin’s Creed Rogue download. I paid for a game I still can’t play, what is this?

I bought TLOU Remastered for £20 at the beginning but underwhelmed since then. I just bought The Evil Within Limited Edition in-store at Game cheaper than this deal. Time’s running out…

Bought for 10% cheaper at Game UK last week…personally advanced notice would be better as we know we should have Far Cry & Drive club, (going by the advert) so hoping for “Little Big Planet 3”.

I would have played the extra if I knew what was next up as prefer digital download… So again sort it out Sony, send us some sort of survey???


got excited about ground zeroes for a minute, but not available here

Then evil within is a broken mess but for some reason has charm. I like it.
…but I already have it, bummer.
See you Wednesday!!

SCEE is just plain awfull! Thank god, that u dont enforce IP restrictions on USA PSN, so we can buy games without outrageous prices. I really want to know, why PS4 prices went to 69,99€ while in USA and Canada they are priced the same as PC and PS3….

I am Playstation player since 1996 and i love it but European prices are just plain steal this gen!!!


I read somewhere a while ago that in the US some sort of contract was signed to keep all the prices at $60 while in Europe there was nothing like that so the publishers have free reign. That’s how we get ridiculous prices like 90 euros for a special edition.
As you say, luckily we have the US store but don’t give them any ideas with the IP restrictions…


Dude, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! :D

And yet another disappointment. Remember never to top up wallet BEFORE “discounts” are published. It’s a 0 out of 8 for me.

I thought this was the 12 deals of Christmas, not the 12 deals of Black Friday.
