What games/movies do you plan to buy from this sale, if any? Good luck navigating the store to make your purchase if you do.

I think I might pick up Hot Shots golf for $6.25 and The Unfinished Swan for $3.75. I don't see anything else I want. Do these games change everyday or are these games going to be the same everyday during the whole sale? If the same, then that's all I will be picking up. I will never buy a movie off PSN no matter what the price.

i never understand how sony picks their sells at times it always seems like a odd list of games or movies
#4 Posted by Terrencec06 (3464 posts) -

Probably will pick up Unfinished Swan and LBP Karting. NOT 100% sure on LBP Karting though. Decent Sale none the less.

I was going to get ff6 last week! Glad I waited.
#6 Posted by darkspineslayer (19552 posts) -
Sonuva **** I bought LBPK for $20 on Boxing Day. Might pick up Unfinished Swan, house of dead or psychonauts.
#7 Posted by The_Golden_Age- (145 posts) -

I'm getting The Unfinished Swan for sure.

#8 Posted by blabbyboy (2612 posts) -
So cheap! :D
#9 Posted by ItsEvolution (2593 posts) -

Mehhhhh....

#10 Posted by Sokol4ever (6304 posts) -

The Little Big Planet and Unfinished Swan are on my lookout list, great prices. I hope to see more in future.

#11 Posted by Kravyn81 (9438 posts) -
Eh...nothing particularly stands out to me personally. Great prices, though.
#12 Posted by thedarklinglord (662 posts) -
I wish they were offering better games at those prices. Still, just about every sale - even when there's nothing I want - illustrates why PSN Plus is such a great deal.

I'm getting LBPK and Psychonauts.

#14 Posted by TheFallenDemon (13932 posts) -

You do have to roll your eyes a bit when you read the official blog post that lists those games and movies as the best Playstation has to offer.

Because Shank 2 is totally a better game than Journey, Castle Crashers, Limbo, The Walking Dead, etc.

I'll probably pick up the Unfinished Swan.
#16 Posted by BH14 (1673 posts) -

ton of great games in this list. i dont have ps+ but this list with all discounts would give me a reason to try ps+ for 3 months. house of the dead is a must have for move owners but it is also fun to play with dual shock. lbp kart racing is highly rated and cheap. everyone loves hot shots golf out of bounds & it is highly rated. im not a golf fan but it looks fun game.

#17 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
Okay the main reason I wanted HSG was to play with my family, but seeing none of them want to play a golf game, I decided against buying it. I did end up buying The Unfinished Swan and a really cool looking game called Machinarium.
#18 Posted by PumpkinBoogie (3366 posts) -
I have to say I'm so gonna pick up House of the Dead. I'm not a crazy fan of too many zombie games (mostly b/c I think the sub-genre is kinda beaten into the ground), but for some strange reason for quite a while I've always been interested in getting/playing that game, lol. I heard it a pretty crazy and twisted story maybe that's why, lol. But 5 bucks is hella awesome. :)

As a PS+ user, I cannot pass up on that deal for LBP Karting. I was planning on purchasing it down the road, but this is just perfect. Might pick up that Hot Shots Golf game too since I'm going to purchase a $20 PSN card anyway.
#20 Posted by Threesixtyci (4283 posts) -
Eh... I rather have the FF sale.
#21 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
Well I just finished The Unfinished Swan and it was well worth the purchase for anybody wondering if they should buy it. Tomorrow I will start Machinarium.
#22 Posted by EPaul (9906 posts) -

I got LBP Karting, Machinaruim, Jet Set Radio, The Unfinished Swan, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter: The precursor legacy

Decent Haul

Have you played either The Unfinished Swan or Machinarium yet? I have started playing Machinarium now and wow what a weird but fun game. I have never in my 34 years of gaming played anything like it before. I like what I have played so far. I am loving these Indie games. I need to grab Papo & Yo. I liked the demo for it.

so far i only bought warp it was a game i wanted then it came out but ending up forgetting about and i am enjoying it
#25 Posted by koolyoe (140 posts) -

I got LBP Karting, Warp, Machinaruim, and I also got LBP2 (free PSPlus) So much fun!

#26 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
Well I just decided to get Warp and Shank 2 as well. Wasn't going to get Warp because the videos on PSN make the game look like crap, but decided to watch gameplay on YouTube and changed my mind. Bought Shank 2 due to it wouldn't let me only put $2.50 in my wallet and forced me (which wasn't cool) to put in $5 so I had $2.50 left, so I bought Shank 2.
