I was kinda hoping that attack on titan 2 would be here but I guess not.

2.1

Not even the first one from 2016.

Still waiting for a decent discount on Sekiro. A whole 25% off isn’t really it..

3.1

It’s not even 6 months old… what on earth are you expecting?!

@Technogamer: A price which is less than its physical counterpart at least. £45 is as much as it was upon it’s release on disc. Perhaps you think that digital costs which are more than physical are acceptable?

I died more than twice though, false advertisement!

The Big in Japan sale is always one of my favourites but it’s clear that a lot of these titles have been on sale previously at lower prices. That always puts me off buying.

Big in Japan is usually one of my favourite sales as well, mainly because it usually includes Vita games as well, but this time it only includes the PS4 versions of multi-platform games. Very disappointing, Sony. It’s bad enough that you have taken the Vita games off playstation plus and not given anything else in replacement,or not including Vita games in every other sale during the year, but to not include Vita games in a “BIG IN JAPAN” sale is just absolutely pathetic.

Well.. I guess getting zero/Kiwame/Kiwame 2 all on sale balances out us not getting the digital origins bundle 🤔

What a joke of the “Big in Japan” sale. Not even one add-on (all platforms) or one title among the great PS3/PS Vita Japanese library is discounted. Games that are present on multiple platforms (Odin Sphere: Leithrasir, Root Letter etc.) are on sale only on PS4. This console still needs so much exposure in comparison to others or what?

I was about to spend lots of money during this sale but it would seem I won’t unless they add some more titles next week. Hopefully on more platforms.

EDIT: If I’m not mistaken, the PS3/Vita titles discounted previously just switched the discount period to Big in Japan’s one and they think that counts.

Why has the EU shop completely dropped PSVita sales? The US shop has great discounts on Vita games right now for their Big In Japan sale while we get nothing. Why?

Adventures of Mana is up there and that’s Vita only. So..that’s…something. :P

True, shame on you sony.

What is this, “Vita”?

Am I blind or are we really not getting any discounts for PS Vita and PS3 games?

Come on, US has some pretty nice sales going on, so what the hell is this joke of a EU “Big in Japan”-sale?

I beg your pardon, Metal Gear Survive isn’t big in anything. Just delete it from the store completely.

You should really look up what the phrase “Big in Japan” mean, you take it too literally :)

@Maaden_Swe: He’s just joking about how bad MG Survive is. In a twist of irony I think you took him too literally.

9.3

@Maaden_Swe *insert “why so serious” meme by joker*

Heavy £3 off Yakuza 0.

Thank you.

Where the solid PS Vita/PSP sales at? Not to mention you totally neglect the PS3, it’s sad, honestly. You don’t even update the deals list on the PS3 store, it just sits there with the games that aren’t even on sale anymore, just sitting there in a full priced state…

The US store has over double the games in their ‘big in Japan’ sale, Including more PS4 titles. Many have been on sale on the US store 5 times over the last several months, but not once here. Why do we get less items on sale? And most of the “sale” items here are either the same price, or slightly more, than previous sales. Not impressed, Sony.

12.1

Because the EU region has always been a strong Sony stronghold. The US (and Japan) are less so, so they treat those regions preferentially.

I guess they forget that it was the EU region that kept them around during the PS3 era…

Thanks to my beautiful children I am getting borderlands on Friday so I wont get anything….Tekken 7 is $17 you say? Okay 😁

Usually this and the Christmas sale are the ones which get me to buy a tone of games, and this was really disappointing, you don’t usually advertise it but there are usually some good bargains to be had on vita/psp/ps3 and there is some, but there not really that good. As for PS4 games there are a few tempting things I might get one or two things but its a bit underwhelming their are some games on discount which have been cheaper earlier in the year and most of things are the same discounts we have already had, this is usually a way better sale.

Was gonna buy something for PS Vita but never mind. 😠

Um, why there are no discounts on the PS3 and Vita games on EU Stores anymore??? What happened?? I was really looking forward to getting UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] on PS3 with a discount. Can we get some more disounts for PS3 and Vita games again pretty please??
