    It all stands out. All prices are still WAY too high. One example: Alice: Madness Returns is E3 on Origin atm. THATs a sale. This is not.

    @1 then go buy the game on Origin, and stop complaining. Gamers are forever bitching and finding negatives in every game story these days.

    Back on topic, I think they are decent deals, I own most or have played them…might pick up Tales from Space for £2.39 can’t go wrong with that price.

    Hoping this is just a prelude to the actual big summer sale.

    Without even comparing it to the Steam sale, the choice of games isn’t doing it for me.

    Hopefully 3rd party games are on sale sometime, I tried the Awesomenauts demo yesterday, enjoyed it but it’ll need to be cheaper for me to buy it, it’s a multiplayer focussed game, an old multiplayer focussed game, an old multiplayer focussed PSN game.

    I wouldn’t mind if the PSN sale turns out crap though as there’s loads of new games like Luftrausers, TMNT, Brothers, Super Time Force to name a few on their way to PSN/XBLA soon.

    #2 totally agree.

    Someone is offering discounts and people are only complaining about it, like wtf :)

    The best way to get cheap Playstation games is to be a ps+ subscriber.

    Besides all the free games you also get discounts every week for full games, dlc, extra stuff etc

    I also think that is why events like Summer Sale only offer a few things and mostly old games.

    They offer free games+discounts every week for ps+ subscriber and that would not have such a high impact if they offer the same things in events like Summer Sale.

    Many people wouldnt get ps+ and just buy the stuff for the same price when its on sale in summer/christmas etc (they want ps+ to stay very attractive).

    If Steam or co would offer such a subscribtion service (50Euro for 64free games + discounts every week), there Summer Sale would also loose its appeal.

    @7 Someone is denial. New games went as low as -50% last steam summer sale. Not to mention most services PS+ offers like cloud saves and automatic updates are FREE on Steam.

    Steam also has a wide selection of F2P games and has daily/weekly/weekend deals for random games. No Steam+ or anything required.

    @8
    There is a simple solution if you guys want better deals like Dizzy stated: Wait for it…

    Get Steam and abandon PlayStation Network.

    Take what you get or get what you want elsewhere.

    These prices aren’t as good as the US’s Summer sale. Alice Madness was actually cheaper as a plus member then on Steam at 4 bucks for both games. 5 bucks for Lego Batman 2, 7.50 for Silent hill book of memories and 5 bucks for arkham asylum.

    @8 granted that Steam is merely a portal to your custom rig that can cost you upwards 700-1500 to acquire for gaming (depending on your settings desires). They kind of need to have those perks without charging extra. Best believe if they were a console developer they would have some form of charged service like anyone else in that particular market.

    But, I digress it is still apples to oranges on what you personally want. No, denial of any sort on anyone

    #8 I am not in denial :)

    Just thought that ps+ might be the reason why the offers for psn sales are often not so good.

    I dont even have ps+ myself.

    Checked Steam everyday for good deals.

    The prices of Bioshock Infinite/Tomb Raider/Hitman etc have been 2-5Euro cheaper than amazon offers them without a sale.

    Had everything I was interested already bought cheaper from retail.

    Indie games had great offers and I bought 2 of them.

    I just wish Microsoft and Steam would also offer such a service as ps+, that would be great for gamers.
