No discounted yet

25 bucks

It was for me, it’s probably tied to your timezone so most likely just wait an hour or two.

It appears once the item is in the basket

Not bad… Let the games begin!!!

£21.99 for Crash Bandicoot?? Nah! That’s a ‘less than a tenner’ game to my mind. Oh well, one down, eleven to go!

do not thank

(for moderators, it’s just IMHO)

Crash

NBA2k18

GTA5

CoD:WWII

SW Battlefront 2

NFS Payback

FIFA 18

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Wolfenstein 2

The Evil Within 2

Destiny 2

I bought uncharted with a discount some days ago, so I doubt it will be in the list of deals but the others are most probably present.

3.3

Will Fifa 18 be back on sale?

That’s the discounted price?

I saw it cheaper…. So I don’t see how 12 deals of Xmas could make someone want it.

4.1

Where “do” you see it cheaper? This is price of it now, we want to know where you see it cheaper than this NOW, not in the past. Care to share? £27.99 on Amazon UK and £29.99 in Argos right now.

I bought it for £22 from Asda over a year ago. Generally It’s one game that seems to hold its price though, obviously due to its popularity. £19.99 is a good price if you like going digital, I prefer to have a physical copy myself though.

4.3

They’re talking about crash bandicoot buddy.

Standard playstation store. Add ‘hefty discounts’ which make the games still more expensive than most physical copies in shops. Laughable.

5.1

Cool, why don’t you actually share us some links from 90% of physical copies in stores (because of course, you said “most”) where its apparently much cheaper.

That’s what I thought.

Give me time to reply and I will. Crash bandicoot is only £20 at Tesco for a kick off. Next game youd like me to price check for you?

£28 online at Tesco. Nice try

Speak for your local store because here in Italy the situation is dramatic. To make an example, the other day passing from the local Gamestop my eyes stopped at the box of Infamous:Second Son used 35euros. That’s for loud lol’s if you concedere that we had it for free 2 months ago.

Over the last two years I’m 0/24 on 12doxmas purchases.

0/25 now.

8

I don´t see any discount yet

I hope there is no COD WW 2 and similar with a huge discount of 20% which is still more than physical version.

CoD WW2 is the next, lol

Uoooooooops!

And the 12 rubbish not even deals of Xmas start…. What a stupid price to be called a deal..

Bad price, the game is here €25 on disc.

ttps://www.mediamarkt.nl/nl/product/_crash-bandicoot-nsane-trilogy-playstation-4-1500480.html

11.1

Cool and does that version also inlclude the cover that isn’t the final boxart for the game? Seems legit. Can you keep your linking to less dodgy looking stores please?

The mediamarkt is one of the biggest stores here in the netherlands and germany. Are you working for sony? This xmass deal is rubbish. The disc version is still cheaper than this deal

11.3

Not only in the Netherlands and Germany either. I’ve been to MediaMarkt stores in Sweden. @andrewsqual, MediaMarkt is massive, and they don’t really need their online presence. As such, it’s no surprise certain images don’t get updated, but it’s definitely legit.

Friendly reminder; wait for the new year’s sale.

12.1

I was waiting for Christmas’ sale for a looong time, but you’re right! I forgot about New Year.

I still find this type of “sale/deal” system bad. Well if it was absolutely spot on deals then perhaps. I guess we will see the usual FIFA, COD, other usually on sale titles.

I would rather have you guys have a larger selection and switch them out once per week. Maybe 12 deals each week, then you keep the 12 deals of christmas slogan. Just of course it will be 12*4 but no one will notice. Well I hope to see some spot on deals and not some lame generic “allways on sale for a bad price” deals.

Anyway Crash Bandicoot a good first choice. Also to an ok price. 3 games in one package so not bad. I already got it, so the first deal is a skip for me.

15

Never liked Crash. Never liked remasters. So… No, thanks. 11 more to go, so I won’t complain, I’m sure many people will be glad with this one.

And remember: PS Plus members are *not* eligible for an additional discount

17

The method of revealing the deals on the day is atrocious marketing. What if somebody has a budget and can only get one game? lets say crash was on their to play list but not at the top they then have to decide whether to buy Crash or wait in the hope that a game further up their wishlist makes it as one of the deals and makes it at a reasonable price but then if it doesn’t they end up spending nothing and Sony lose a sale. Keep the deals one every 48 hours but at least tell us what will be appearing on there at some stage.

17.1

The sales usually go live again on Christmas day.

17.2

Is this true? Will the GTA V sale be back on 24th?

I agree that 99% of the time the “deals” are ridiculous cause you can buy the same title cheaper or at the same price in a store. However my perspective slightly changed recently as I own 2 ps4 and buying a digital game let’s me play 1 copy of the game on 2 consoles so I can appreciate some of the deals thanks to that. 😊

18.1

But you can play 1 copy of the game on as many consoles as you want with a physical copy ;)

He ment at the same time

with digital copy you can play on 2 machines at the same time with single license, something you cant do with a physical disc obviously …

nukualofaperson 01 December, 2017 @ 00:53

I have never seen a game on disc that was cheaper than the digital version here in Norway. It’s not unusual for disc games to be double the price of discounted digital games.

19.1

Believe me some game are 2 times the price than in store siper elite 4 49.99 in shop now for £22 then they put deal on before it was &£30+ just an example dnt spend hard earned money on games without looking them up fitst you may even hate it lol

I would really appreciate, if someone reveal all 12 Deals Of Christmas… Like last year :D

That is the idea to keep you interested dumb ass

they must be weak deals if they need to rely on a gimmick to keep us interested

Can anyone guess the next game???

MiseryPrincess 02 December, 2017 @ 15:01
22.1

NBA 2K18?

23

23.1

Back when PS3 launched in late 2006 in the US, all the way up to November 2011, you could buy a game digitally and play it on up to FIVE PS3 consoles, and at the exact same time without activating and deactiviating too. 2 consoles isn’t really a game changer 11 years later.

That is true that alot of the time you can buy the digital game at the same price or cheaper than the physical copy but not always. Take that 1st Crash Bandicoot sale, everyone over exaggeratedly laughed at how it could be got cheaper, some clueless people even claiming over 90% of retailers (they said “most”) were selling it cheaper yet not one of those people could provide one shred of proof. One person got me with a German retailer or something but that was about it.

But I still think anybody is crazy for buying a game that is over 40gbs for anything over 15 quid. I generally only buy digitally when the game is a small enough affair and the game is less than a fiver in a sale. What size is NBA 2K18 right now? ...

Yeah, not even for a tenner will I touch that digitally lol.

24

Please ok give Nioh Season Pass a sale already. It was on Sale on other countries outside the US on BF. I really want to get it

MiseryPrincess 01 December, 2017 @ 23:09
24.1

It does go on sale occasionally (I got it on sale on the store), though it probably wont be one of these deals.

Blergh, sports games. Sits on money.

Hope AC, WS2 or Mordor are in there. Otherwise I pretty much don’t care.

26

On the 2nd deal of xmas Sony gave to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

A crappy game full of microtransaction feeeeeeeeeeeeeeees

Seriously the game is set up in such a way that if you don’t buy the MT’s then you will get NOWHERE in the game.

Oh, you’ll still get somewhere. Eventually. And not before NBA 2K19 is released.

A discount for BF1 Premium pass would be nice, Playstation, because a game like Crash for 22 quid is not much of a ‘deal’ .

27.1

There was a huge discount for Bf1 Premium Pass during Black Friday sale.

27.2

And a game like BF1 isn’t worth a purchase unless it’s under 10£. It’ll get to that price after just a few years anyways, like the other games in the series

27.3

Black Friday had a big discount, so i bought the season pass then.

28

GTA5, really? I have a full wallet specifically for this sale, what’s the bet i end the month with a full wallet too?

28.1

January deal will be more interesting then the Christmas sales ;) every year it’s the same story ;)

Having GTA V on this list is like a cheat day. The game was released 3 years ago! The only upside is that it has finally hit the sub £20 mark (barely) for the first time.

29.1

Agreed. I’m pretty sure there are a dozen people who don’t own this yet. But come on, it was discounted a couple of weeks ago already. Seems like a joke.

You need to count in fresh console buyers which never played GTA V on any platform.

29.3

I bet you there’ll be a “Skyrim deal” too …

9 deals to go, and five of those are 100% guaranteed to be PES, FIFA, CoD, Assassin’s Creed and Battlefront. Fingers crossed that Hellblade is one of the remainder

Lets throw in Knack 2 to that list.

Carnivius_Prime 04 December, 2017 @ 14:35
30.2

bleh. i wouldn’t mind buying horizon zero dawn again if super cheap (was the only game i bought on disc in the past few years only cos i found it for £25 not too long after release and at the time that was very cheap but i sold it for profit cos i wasn’t hugely into it but wouldn’t mind trying again if digital £15 or under but not likely a price)

31

I missed number 2 as didn’t realise it this same topic but then I see its NBA and i’m like never mind then.

Already have GTAV and i don’t even have installed anymore cos it’s boring. I enjoyed it quite a bit online with my friend but we don’t play it much anymore so it was 60 gigs of space-filler. Can always redownload it if we feel like playing again. But yeah the story mode just bored me all to flipping hell and I don’t mind a bit of swearing but it seemed like every other word was cussing and it got tiresome and silly.

Thank you Sony for keeping my wallet safe with your crap “deals” !

Come on Sony. You can do far better than this! A good price for a game that continues to hold it’s value so well but there are probably as many GTA V sales as there are PS4s. Anyone who wanted this will surely have owned it by now.

I have finished GTA V on my PS3 in 2013. Is there any reason I should get it now for my PS4? Have they added some stuff that makes the game worth re-playing?

34.1

Nope. Well, this version has a 1st person mode but that’s about it. I 100%ed all offline content by late 2015 and that was on a friend’s PS3 copy I got a lend of eventually. After the disappointment that was GTA IV, GTA has never been great since.

I’m the same, I 100% completed it on PS3 in 2013. I never really got into the online side of it though and I hear that is much better now.

The offline version hasn’t changed much. Well yes graphics. And I think there are some smaller additions and changes. But the story is the same and such.

Online mode on the other hand has been greatly improved over the years. Yes it is still a chore to get money, it will be slow, but there is generally more stuff to do. Once you establish a good source of income you will still struggle with getting everything but it becomes better.

Is the PS4 version worth it? Well from my perspective (As also a PS3 and PS4 player) if you want to play Online, then yes. If you only plan on Offline then meh, well if you want to replay then yes, but it’s not that big of a singleplayer experience.

This is mockery nothing more

three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree…and what do we get? friggin gta v

Please give us something new… Last year we had it as well. Btw just exaggerating, though hope to see something good later on that I don’t have.

https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2015/12/16/the-12-deals-of-christmas-9/

I am not totally against putting a game on twice, just add an alternative. Else we will just have dejavu from last year the whole way through. GTA V is not a bad game, but it got some age now, and most people who want it have had plenty of opportunities to get it at a discounted price, I mean years.

I wonder what day we will have FIFA, PES, CoD. We will most likely see some smaller discounts on AC:Origins, SW:Battlefront 2. I hope we will get some few good surprises though. It will be good if games like FIFA and PES could share same 2 days, instead of taking up 2 slots out of 12. That is if you add them but you usually are.

I still believe that your 12 deals of Christmas should be overhauled and really get reworked. What you make such a big fuss about is actually worse...

It’s just not good when it feels like we have been here before (putting games on sales from previous years sale)

YAY FLEEXIE!

2 for 30$ is better

ManikwithaNine 05 December, 2017 @ 01:36

I didn’t know the 12 days Christmas sale started.

39.1

You didn’t miss much till now mate! 👌

Crash and GTA at €25 are not too bad even though MOST retailers apparently have those 2 games MUCH cheaper right now, good luck finding over 90% of retailers with those prices though.

With that in mind, contrary to overexagerated and popular belief, you missed much so far. Something to open all the naysayers eyes https://pricespy.co.uk/product.php?p=2696112

ManikwithaNine 06 December, 2017 @ 21:11
39.3

I already have gta. I’m not interested in crash.

40

Why are the games not on sale for the U.S.?

I wish they were but there are no news or anything about it

41

A garbage EA Frostbite engine game? No thanks, not even for 2 quid lol.

The typical Electronic Farts, shady rigged slot machines disguised as video games – disgusting!!! Keep it!!!

(I know 3 puke emoji’s are still not enough)

Hoping Hellblade becomes available at a actual discounted price.

WELCOME2CH1CAGO 10 December, 2017 @ 12:24
43.1

Hellblade has been reduced to £16.99 but only until 11/12/2017 (11:59 pm).

Nier Automata and DLC for 50% please. I won’t buy anything from EA!

44.1

Don’t worry Kroon1982 after Christmas we will have Ubisoft deals, after that EA deals, finishing with Bethesda deals… rinse, repeat over and over.

Steve_Of_The_O 06 December, 2017 @ 13:40

This is steadily turning into the 12 babs of babness.

Another EA game [DELETED] !!!

So far 0/4 for me !!

Sony Give us something worth our while !!!

X_Blood_Curse_X 06 December, 2017 @ 14:34
47

I preferred it when we had a separate post per deal

47.1

They do it this way so that there aren’t as many posts complaining about the terrible deals. They’re keeping their KPIs in check.

These December offers finishes out to be an exact repetition of Black Friday games we just saw 2 weeks ago. Till now 4/4

48.1

And we are 6 out of 6 from Black Monday!!🤔

It’s just going to be a i I soft game next then a COD game and wolfenstein and battlefield etc etc

50

Another year of pathetic deals that have been cheaper within the year already or will be very soon. Some are even cheaper in physical form right now. 2 for £25 is even worst most have been £8 or even less many times.
