Good Sale, I'm interested. Armored Core, The Chrono's, Zone of Enders and Hotshots.

Sweet. No wonder I don't want a PS4 yet.

Yet another reminder of how much of a joke EU PSN is.

Ya know, i hear the same thing about how bad the US PSN is, whenever an EU update/sale is announced.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> LOL what a joke! Average EU prices are literally 1.75-2x more expensive than US prices, plus a huge amount of titles simply missing from the catalog or making their way in about 6 months after release.

Bought and downloaded Tales Chronicles for $10! So glad to get this game as I had heard really good things about it. Times like this where PS Plus sometimes really pays for itself.

You hear, Sony? all you need to do now is bring this sales to the EU :)

really curious who the audience for the Atelier series is, and how they sell well enough to keep justifying sequels

<< LINK REMOVED >> More that why people likes it, my question is how they don't get tired of it. I like jRPG but this one is the CoD of teh genre; it's like... a new game each 9 months or so?

I really should get the MGS HD collection. I bought Snake Eater a couple years ago, but haven't played it as it looks horrid on my 60" DLP tv, even with component cables.

Also, same goes for DMC 1 and 3.

By the way if anyone wants to suggest a headset please do so needs to be under $150 though. Right now I am looking at the ps4 gold wireless from Sony just concerned with battery life a little.

Skullcandy PLYR1 7.1 Surround Sound Wireless, They are $130 on amazon. I am not sure how long they will stay this way, they cost about $175. I had those and the gold.

Guess I could spoil myself and buy Chrono Trigger/Cross, it would be nice to actually use my PSP for something...

No news for a similar sale for Europe. :(

And everyone should just ignore that Sevenjizz guy, he's obviously delusional and will repel all common sense thrown at him.
