I got in this sale Saturday picked up Tokyo jungle, Sam & Max, tales of monkey island bundle, plants vs zombies & Jurassic park the game. I am a sucker for telltale games and already had the other bigger titles.

SERIOUSLY, Cucking Funts!


I missed it... /cry forever, I would've bought almost all of it, well that sucks - not been putting much time into the Vita lately and would've remedied that, thanks Sony for making this offer ever so public and not at all hidden away so people have to literally sit and cross their fingers watching your twitter account all day!


Could of at least e-mailed PSN Users?

This is one of the best sales I've seen on consoles. If I didn't own most of them already I would be all over this.


Braid and Tokyo Jungle are well worth a dollar and everyone should at least try them.

I just travel from the past to buy this for a dollar. Kidding xD I wouldn't buy this crap, because i play this 10 years ago on PS1.

@Marscaleb  can't you log into your psn account and buy them with your laptop or mobile/cell phone, then download it when you get home ?

@johnsmythsonian  telltale games are quite good, but I can imagine the likes of FPS fanboys disliking their games since there isn't enough mindless killing and many times you have to solve a puzzle to advance.

@johnsmythsonian  blast factor looks interesting, stardust hd is alright if you like twinstick shooters,  trials freestyle looks like a decent knock off of the trials franchise, i don't think its part of the franchise though, i played echochrome 1,

and it made my head explode, don't know if part 2 is any good though, those be my pick,

@BadMrSnake  buy codes from amazon 

hell you can even buy physical cards if you're too paranoid 


i too think entrust neither $ony or micro$oft your CC is a poor idea but there is always an altarnative.

@BadMrSnake lol...Sony has had my credit card number for 10 years and I've never had an issue.

@BadMrSnake  are you really complaining about getting games for $1? Just buy PSN money cards and worry no more. Also, that happed a while back long enough to the point, that we can stop pitting that agents them... besides, i bet you that one or more of the sites you use have been hacked and cards have been compromised, but you still use it like nothing happed. Sony is not the only one this has happed to. Look at how many sites hackers have hacked and compromised cards on between 2013 and 14.More than likely, you used one of them and still continue to.

@igorcule Glad you think that it was crap ten years ago.  Nevermind, they're still great no matter how old they are.
