To be fair, the store update page lists it as a price update, not a sale. The OP just copied and pasted everything in that section.

Damn Penny Arcade Adventures 1 & 2 for $2.99? Is this a mistake? I just checked to see if perhaps they were too old for trophies but ps3trophies.org lists trophies for both! Figures I just started playing it last week on my brother's xbox and I really don't think they are worth playing through again. Still that's an insane discount for 2 games.

i didn't find any special deals section, but i found an alternative way to get it. when entering the psn store click games, then bundles, then scroll down alphabetically and it is there: penny arcade otrspod bundle ep 1 and 2 for $2.99

if you are planning on getting it, hurry up and buy it now just in case it is a pricing mistake.

New Releases > Special Offers, that's where I got it, though it seems to be gone now.

I still see it there. Definitely out of the way. Intentional?

I just purchased it and it disappeared from the Special Offers section. I'm guessing that's what happened to you.

Nope, not in new releases or in the bundles section, either. For those of you who got in on it, congrats. For me, :cry:.

EDIT: I own the first one but not the second; is it possible it's only available to those who don't own either? That would be quite a dick move, Sony.

@mxpowar
it is definitely still there. alternatively, click view all by title after entering the store, the p for penny. click on penny arcade episode 1 or 2 (doesn't matter which). the bundle shows up for $2.99 while the individual episode it is next to is $15 lol.

Day-first date formatting makes me a sad panda. OP, can you fix it and put the month first? The main game deals forum is for USA deals, and we typically list the month first.

Checked both episodes and no bundles are listed. Looks like I'm being blocked from the deal for some reason and all I can say is Fuck you, Sony.

I just got the Penny Arcade Bundle for $3! Awesome!

I went to "View by Title", "P", "Penny Arcade". When you click on one of the two game listed, it should show the Demo, the single game you are viewing and the Bundle. Hit the Bundle and go to checkout. Woo!

Great price and I think it should be highlighted in the Thread Title. People shouldn't miss out on the deal.

Not really, because the bundle is on sale, not the individual episodes.

whatever. i changed it but in principle you (american or not) should always use the international standard for better file organization anyway.

just changed that too.

It's not. I picked them both up for $3 on Steam at the end of January. I think they gave up since a lot of infighting happened over the failed sequels just a couple of weeks prior. So they slashed the prices on the first two.

Back in March, PA blamed Hothead for not being able to complete the game. In early January, Hothead fired back (yeah, 9 months later) and blamed it on PA not keeping up with the workload. Then they bickered over how Part 3 would be made if it sold well on the Mac App Store. Two weeks later, Steam slashes the price to $3 and now PSN does as well.

The games are decent if you like their humor. It's basic adventure gaming with a lot of timed button presses. I don't read their web comic, but I did LOL a few times during the games.

It shouldn't be a pricing mistake considering it was listed on the official Blog.

As has been previously said when this is brought up, that thread lists the entire updates, not just the deals. Furthermore, this is the deals forum. People come here to find out about deals. If you wanted to find out about XBLA deals, would you go to the forum marked Xbox Gaming Discussion or Video Game Deals?

Thank you. While I completely agree that the day/month/year format makes more sense logically it is still confusing when I see it listed as such. Next you'll be wanting me to measure things in centimeters and grams instead of inches and pounds! (Also agree with the former being far more logical but confusing as hell when you were raised to be an idiot)

I was finally able to find the bundle by using the search bar and typing penny arcade adventures, but when I click on it, it takes me to a screen with nothing on it and the words, "No content was found", on the bottom. I spoke with a Sony CSR and he said that the content was taken down for maintenance. I'm really frustrated :bomb: but hopefully they'll put it back up or maybe Amazon will price match...

You can't buy bundles if you already own one of the items. That's how it works for every bundle in the store. You're out of luck, sorry.

I asked the CSR this exact question and he said that you CAN technically rebuy content you already own and that the content shouldn't be blocked for me.

EDIT: Also, I just checked and I am able to find and purchase the flow bundle even though I already own the original game but not the expansion.

Got Penny Arcade. Always wanted to try them out, but $15 a pop was not going to happen. Three bucks sounds about right, especially since they are not doing the next 2 episodes. I'm just hoping the follow through and rap up the story line somehow.

FYI I just went under view by title, then to P, the picked a episode and the bundle was there.

I already have Penny Arcade 1 on my main PSN account. I always wanted 2 but felt $15 was a bit much for the amount of playing I got out of it. 1 was fun, but I figured I could wait for 2 to go on sale.

I can not purchase the bundle on my main account. No matter how I try to get the games, the bundle is never an option.

I switched over to my sub account and the bundle is there for $2.99.

I assume it is true that once you own part of the bundle, you can not buy the whole bundle.

Of course, there are only a few pennies in my sub account, and a few bucks in my main one. :roll:

Well, at least I now know that I'm not crazy and there isn't some conspiracy by Sony to stop me from buying the bundle:lol:. Do you think a Sony CSR would be able to delete the episode one purchase from my account history so that I could purchase the bundle?
