Just putting it out there, but the Borderlands DLC is no longer discounted for PS+ members. If the OP could be updated to reflect that, that'd be nice.

Did you see retro/grade free machinarium free or past games available on eu, free? I don't think it will


Oh I don't necessarily mean next month or even the next few months. Just saying there is precidence that they can offer it for free.

Just feeling burned the past couple months of free stuff that I bought when it was discounted but still haven't gotten around to playing and were eventually free, haha.

I hadn't seen anything about the pricing of FF3 on IGN. $40 is ridiculous unless I was importing the UMD. I'll wait it out until around $20. I have the DS release and while I never finished it, it didn't grate on me like the FF4 on DS remake did. I guess because I only played maybe an hour of a hacked FF3 rom back in... 2000?

Maybe just Marvel and Tokyo Jungle for me then.

It's a Sega game, therefore it'll be on sale eventually, possibly by the end of the year. The fact it's already discounted for PS+ is tempting, but I'm sure it'll be $10 or less soon enough.

How long will the Tokyo Jungle discount be active? I can't get back to my PS3 until October 11. Why don't they let me buy stuff from the Internet? Or at least my Vita...

Also, whilst whining, if Square is charging $40 for FFIII, they're even further out of touch than Nintendo charging $40 for the digital NSMB2. FFIII is what, $10 on DS, $15 (already outrageous) on iOS? I'd even pay $20, but jeez.

Well, iirc, they ARE charging $30 for Final Fantasy Dimensions on iOS. I think that move is pretty ridiculous already, far removed from the pricing of NSMB2 or even FF3 if it's $20.

Didn't even think about that. Would be a perfect crossplay game to have on both systems.

At first I thought that was for free with PS Plus, what a deal that would be!

I don't understand how they expect these digital copies to sell well if they are the same price as their retail counterparts.

Yeah, the digital release on console won't sell that well. For me I like the trend that it's going but I will still like it cheaper since it doesn't have the packaging. Well, time to download Dead or Alive 5 on PSN tonight.

Are you in Europe ? Hell yeah Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is free for Europe October 4th it wasn't mentioned for US but the same didn't happen with machinarium


Nope USA.

We have a list for all first week of October release in the states already?

Those games for free on release date?

"Deal" would be an understatement to the highest degree.

While I like the idea of having Day 1 digital copies, they really need to turn the prices down to reflect the fact that it's a digital only copy.

Why would I ever buy a digital copy instead of a physical when I can get it tax-less from amazon, release date shipping with a $10 promotion credit?

Same here, I really don't understand the pricing of digital new releases.
With digital games being $55 or even $50, why anyone would prefer a digital over a physical copy?
Am I missing something?

And most importantly, once a digital copy is done. It's done. Digitial copies can't be sold back or traded in.
Most of my used games now go back to Amazon for credit.

Yeah, I definitely think it will be $7.50 or lower in 6 months or so. The first couple reviews to come in haven't been all that great either. I'm definitely waiting.

+1 to all these comments. I don't understand the appeal of day one digital purchases at all. Maybe it's just because we're all CAGs and we understand how much money we're leaving on the table by buying Day 1 digitally...is anyone here planning to buy any of these games digitally day 1? If so, maybe you could explain your reasoning behind it? I'd like to hear a well thought out answer.

As soon as Sony starts undercutting retailers with cheaper digital copies, they remove most/all motivation that retailers have in supporting that product. It's rather surprising that retailers aren't more vocal about having additional competition from Sony on day 1 of a new release.

This day-and-date practice of digital releases on PSN is just taking things one step closer to moving consumers over to a purely digital mindset. Sure it doesn't seem very appealing now but this seems like a transitional step to wean consumers off of 30+ years of buying physical copies of games. Just like the concept on online passes and the diminishing presence of instruction books. It's only a matter of time until digital copies are the only choice consumers have. :cry:

And that will be a sad day. I already have trouble with the concept of "owning" digital-only XBLA and PSN titles. I'd love to see some sort of digital 2nd hand PSN market (overseen by Sony) where you could sale your licenses to play games/DLC for a few bucks less than full price. So I could get a few bucks for selling my game, someone else could buy the game for a few bucks cheaper, and Sony and the Publisher can still take a little bit of the cut too.

I think Steam is starting to try something like this out, with in-game content I believe.

Surprisingly, these digital copies actually sell pretty well. What I don't understand is the people who seem to think the packaging makes up a significant portion of the costs. That's like pennies per copy.

True, there are cost savings to digital distribution, but it's not really the packaging. It is somewhat the manufacturing, but that's probably a mosquito bite next to creating and storing physical inventory, dealing with retail companies and securing shelf space.

FFIII will be 20$ when the store updates later today so no need to cry at least more people will get it, I won't
