Another terrible "sale" from Sony.

"Hey let's jack the prices up so when we put them on sale they still cost what they should have on day one"

Fuck this Nintendo approach Sony's got going in since the PS5 dropped.

Grabbed Demon's Souls while it was discounted, and will likely do my usual thing of sweeping up a bunch of indies as many are literally pennies right now.

Still tempted by Returnal but with the slew of stuff coming out in the new year, I think I can afford to wait awhile.

Weak sale overall (EU), especially when it comes to PS5 games. I can easily buy most of them in retail for the same price without waiting for any sales. I ended up picking up Diablo 2 and Metro Exodus Gold.

Not buying any games. Alot of games just have a 20-30% discount.
Just getting the 12 month PS+ for 40€ since is the only thing that dont get discounts very often. All games already been at that price in previous promos.

RE8 for 30€ is tempting, if i find the phisical version at that price i will bite.

It's like Sony is slowly going the Nintendo route. Joke's on them I guess, not getting my money with the discount being basically full price. Third party games it is.
They are trying to digitally but their physical copies aren’t holding up as retailers have slashe prices quite well for Black Friday in the UK (Miles Morales PS5 is £15 from Tesco, Ratchet is £25 from Tesco and DeS is £29 from Smyths).

My list so far

Dying Light Platinum Edition
WWZ Aftermath
RDR 2
Hunt Showdown Deluxe
Sackboy
Avengers

RDR2 is a little tempting... But there's still no PS5 patch for that right? After playing Ghost at 60fps (in fact every single PS5 game I've played since I bought it has been 60) I'm not sure about suffering through an open world game at 30...

Still no patch but I want a digital copy and for £23 I can't go wrong.

I wish the deluxe editions would at least match the discount percent of the regular edition instead of matching the dollar discount...

I'm very interested in Sackboy at 50% off but I'd like the digital deluxe, however it's only 38% off :-/

Here in EU you can easily buy retail Borderlands 3 for less than that. Plus I think it would be better to hunt for a complete edition with the season passes to get all of the expansions.

Fortunately their Ps5 output is kinda shit for the moment, so it does not really matter in the end

Sometimes wise to wait to see what the PS Plus games for December will be before buying from sales.

I'm quite bummed that Tesco in the UK are selling Rift Apart for £25, but only in select stores.

Cyberpunk is half price at £20, worth picking it up guys? With the nextgen upgrade arriving early next year might not be at this reduced price soon again.

Mafia remake is also finally half-price in a sale so think I might finally try it out.

The Season Pass is currently on sale

UK: https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP1001-PPSA01463_00-BL3SEASONPASSCO1

US: https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP1001-PPSA01462_00-BL3SEASONPASSCO1

Season Pass 2 isn't important and a ripoff at any price you pay so this is a good deal for 4 full sized expansions.
ok thank you for that, a bit strange when i looked at it, it was not on sale, i was probably looking at the wrong one and it cost 60+ pounds.

Dark souls 2 worth the play if you've enjoyed every other souls game? Not sure why I skipped that one lol
If you didn't play it before 3 then don't. That game didn't age well at all. You can trust me, I platinumed the game on PS3 and then on PS4 as well. Over 600 hours of play time, lots of PVP and everything multiple times with several characters. If you consider yourself a hardcore Souls fans you owe it to yourself to play it, but it won't be pretty. I recently tried to play it again and I had to quit after a few hours in, it was simply not fun anymore and the funny thing is I had a great time playing the PS4 version back in 2015. But again, if you're a Souls fan, give it a try.

Honestly it's starting to make sense to either pre-order physical games (at least in my country there's discounts close to 20€ for ps5 preorders) or wait a year a half to buy 1st part games.
One thing's for sure: thank god i didn't go digital-only PS5 this gen.

Fucking amen to this. I’m eBaying games a few weeks later for half price in some cases. Digital feels like a mug’s game with the way Sony are pricing stuff.

But they charge $60 for indie tier games and 10 year old remasters.
Indie tier games, what - no. Remasters, yes. I hope the remaster bubble has partially burst d/t pressure from Microsoft's BC style. But I doubt it. It feels like in the span of just 1 year, it will be a lot harder to release something like Nioh Collection than it was at launch. After the cross-gen upgrade controversies around Ghost of Tsushima, it seems that they're catching some bad press for it. But Nintendo is extremely resistant to change.

Metroid Dread is an indie tier game priced $60.
