TSA: Earlier in the week the US division of SCE had all but the very latest PixelJunk games on sale for a dollar. The expectation – rightly – was that SCEE would do the same, and we could grab some of the PSN’s best games for a matter of pennies.
... not the first time SCEE screws their European customers over though, so TBH I really shouldn't have been surprised. Would have loved to have picked these games up for a dollar, but I guess I'll hang on to my money.
Disappointing. Would have probably bought them all if they were a dollar/pound each
and that my friend is exactly the point! what people forget is that it costs Sony and the devs NOTHING to distribute a digital copy of a game. there's no retailer involved, no box or box art either and no transit costs. most people will have looked at that deal in America and bought them all which, when considered as a whole, makes them as much as if you bought one game at full price. if this is successful and it drove revenue up substantially, we may see similar offers in the future for other devs. hopefully, it eventually comes to Europe and Japan.
scee will never change unless customers complain then show them you wont buy the games . if people still buy them then scee will keep on fcuking
Monsters, Eden, Shooter and Racers are 79p with PS+... where's Sidescroller?! :(
I coulda sworn yesterday I saw each Pixel Junk game for 99p, but today they're back at their normal prices :/ @PirateThom ah. Maybe thats what i saw.
cry some more. What people forget is that Europe isn't one country with one currency.
Not sure why people are disagreeing with you. Well actually that's a lie... I have a fair idea why.
And thats a good reason to rob us blind???? :/
There is no robbing. A smaller discount on something that was cheap in the first place is hardly robbing anyone blind. 'Omg, they're gonna make out like bandits with like $12.' - That's sums it up.
It's not robbing you blind. I'm sure taxes are gonna have something to do with it.
The whole set up of the store stinks on this side of the pond tbh, so its not just pricing issues. I can never understand how things can run so differently within a company just because an ocean seperates them. The look and layout of the PS Store, the communication and feedback from Sony staff on the playstation forums, pricing and better PS+ deals are all far superior in the USA. Only the pricing issue can be blamed on complex ecenomics between differing nations. All the others are down to poor management & flawed strategies
