European first wave of Summer Sale discounts hit PS Store today

As is customary, we can’t not have a Summer Sale, so here it is! Over the course of the next four weeks you will find a ton of discounts to take advantage of. We’ll be rolling out these discounts in batches (it’s a lot of work to push out nearly 200 items) so you must certainly check back each Wednesday to see what gets swapped in.
Today we will begin with a selection of PS4 titles courtesy of EA, from hugely popular FIFA 14 to Need for Speed Rivals, including DLC. Alongside this we also have part one of our PlayStation 3 and PS Vita discounts going live for two weeks before being swapped for part two.
Next week we’ll be back with even more PS4 games on offer (over 25!). (PlayStation, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP)

Horrible. Absolutely disgusting. Hopefully next lineup will be better but this is basically mocking loyal customers.

Few titles that interest me but that's about it.

It does say, "wave."

And horrible to you doesn't mean someone else doesn't like it <shrug>

It's not GREAT. It's pretty good. I would go out on a limb and say it's not horrible, mocking loyal customers, or absolutely disgusting.

So you're saying over 35€ for months old titles is a great deal? It's not thinking my opinion is a fact, it's having some kind of expectations.

No. saying that this is "mocking loyal customers" is stating as fact, something you don't know about. Unless you can read minds?
insomnium2  +   215d ago

Online pricing is BS across the board with consoles. Now with lowered prices they somehow mock us? That is just the spoilt brat in you that is talking out of your ass. Just shut up. If the prices/games don't interest you just walk away.

First Wave = Not so great, but SOME deals are better than NO deals.
insomnium2  +   215d ago
Mocking loyal customers? WTF is wrong with you baggy? Stop being an entitled little prick? They don't HAVE TO have ANY offers. Would THAT not be mocking the userbase?

Would it kill people to put europe or EU in the title?
Zenith4k  +   216d ago
Europe and the eu or the same, did you mean us
BiggCMan  +   216d ago
He meant that he's annoyed to see there are no prices in US, meaning this sale is for Europe and other places at the moment apparently. The headline did not notify us of this.
Zenith4k  +   215d ago
Bigg sound got that in my second read.
Baba1906  +   215d ago
Since when is EU and Europe the same =D one is the continent the other is an Union.

Volkama  +   216d ago
Just look at the amount of Battlefield 4 add-ons available. I wish they were tangible items, so that I could throw them back at EA.
ScottyHoss  +   216d ago
It's almost in response to EAs exclusive Microsoft deal. Why pay 30 a year for that when the deals are almost the same for free
hardeepmeghera  +   216d ago
I like you volkama. I like you a lot. Well said.
SaveFerris  +   216d ago
C'mon Sony. I'd like to see a discount on PS+ memberships now and then.

Wish I could, but live in UK and don't have a US PSN account.

Starks  +   216d ago
These are some good sales, but I've been duped cause it's only for EU.

Starks  +   216d ago
I would have to either click on the source, or end up in this page to find out that it was only for EU. So you both got nothing. Nice try though.

I find it hilarious that you already misconstrued me with a quote you don't seem to understand at all. I'll make it simpler for you once more if that wasn't the case the first time.

"I would have to either CLICK on the source, or end up in THIS PAGE to find out that it was only for EU."

What does that mean, you may ask? That means that I would have to end up on this SAME PAGE you end up talking about in order for me to find out it was only EU sales. Excluding the fact that I would have to click the source, and excluding the fact that the article has been changed to reflect on that, so that I would not have to click on it as I browse through in the first place. Which ultimately means you have no real argument against me for your lack of understanding, other than for some reason you think I was bitching. Smooth move.
hardeepmeghera  +   216d ago
It's decent to say the least. Eventough I've already played and purchased BF4 and NFS at full price, I'd say this sale will probably get more people interested in BF4.

Is this a EU exclusive sale event, or can we expect it in NA territories at a later date? If not offered in NA, and I were to purchase it off a UK account, would the dlc content still work on my primary system/account?

Usually USA sales differ from the EU and most of the times they are a lot better.(unfortunately)

kantenkopf  +   216d ago
Brutally expensive, lot of games have been cheaper in previous sales, even though they are still selling games that are dead and adverstise them within this sale (Guardians of middle-earth e.g.).

I don't know what is going on at SCEE or Sony in general PS Plus IGC lost a lot of quality and weird decisions were made and since weeks the sales are more than disappointing.

I got the feeling that Sony is getting very arrogant, same way they become following the success of the PS2.
LoveSpuds  +   216d ago
Part of the problem is that the Steam sales have set a low benchmark for prices and the consumer now expects deals around this ballpark price which is of course quite unrealistic.

Having said that, these prices can hardly be considered as sales with the retail versions having been available at cheaper prices than these digital copies.

I think that there is a balance to be struck with these sale prices where they are offering a great deal for the consumer but still allowing a decent margin for the publisher.
RosweeSon  +   215d ago
It's not a bad set of games but I just have most mainly bought or free through ps+ but there's plenty on there for everyone, just gutted my ps+ has ran out, getting another year of that ASAP!!
Einhert  +   215d ago
POVERTY compared to steam, you pay for online and this is the best they manage?

Sorry but graphics card upgrade over PS4 this year again.
MuhammadJA  +   215d ago
These games are still expensive. Sorry, Sony, you can't pull a Steam.
Deadpoolio  +   215d ago
Somehow I am betting they don't give a rats ass about steam......
Ocsta  +   215d ago
Those are some solid discounts! Check out ME trilogy! What the hell is wrong with people?
Phoenix76  +   215d ago
Did anyone else notice that the BF4-China Rising DLC on PS4 is £1 more expensive than SA and NS DLC's? Could just be typo error though.
