I'm sure you already know it, but buying the physical version isn't going to save you any space on your HDD, since most physical games have to be fully installed and take up the same amount of space. If you prefer physical games, of course it's worth looking for that version. It's been pretty cheap physically in the past, but this is by far the cheapest price for the digital version. I bought the digital just for the convenience, already have the physical.

 

You can actually get the physical version of it pre-owned on the Gamestop 4 for $20 sale. $5 for the physical copy.

I just bought Tetris for the PS4. I've heard of that crap game. ;)

Hopefully the PS4 has the horsepower to run Tetris. Maybe I will wait to play it on the Neo to make sure I get the full experience.

It's funny you mention Tetris PS4. I was looking into it today and it seems it was reported to be glitchy and unplayable. I was coming here to see if anyone had tried it yet on PS4.

Well here's why I'm hesitating

 

Journey - walking simulator

okami - often compared to zelda games but I don't like zelda games that much tbh

Killzone - filesize is too big. I doubt I'd ever feel like deleting stuff on my card just to make space for this

I haven't played it in a while but I was dissatisfied with it.   I think a lot of it is complete certain goals, like complete 30 lines to unlock the next thing.  I want to say the playing area seemed smaller than it should be.  Again, I don't really remember because I stopped playing it but it was worse and less enjoyable than the Vita version of Tetris.

Sounds like you don't want any of the games.

Picked up Persona 3 Portable and Journey (Journey on a whim, since it was PS3/PS4 crossbuy.) Beat Journey in a few hours, one sitting, but I am glad to finally have experienced it. Not going to go into detail, but damn was it wonderful. Well worth the price, excited to do another playthrough sometime soon.

Check the OP, as I linked to the PS3 version that's on sale.

Save your $5 and skip Killzone Shadow Fall. It's abysmal.

Ok, I tried buying it thru the store on my PS4. I don't have a PS3, so as long as I can play on the PS4. I'll buy it thru the website, thanks. :)

Hitman GO worth $3.19?

A thousand times yes. It's a real cool little puzzle game and is wholly unique. It has gotten cheaper if you'd prefer it on your phone or Windows but if you want it on console, it's so good. I'm really hoping Lara Croft GO gets the same PS4 port style soon.

Hitman GO worth $3.19?

Basically you are on a grid and the goal is to traverse obstacles to reach your objective. Each level has 1 goal (escape or kill your target) and 2 sub goals which range from finishing under a certain number of moves, to picking up a briefcase on the way, or not killing any guards. Things begin simply with fat guards who are lazy and only look in one direction so that you can easily kill them by flanking them from the sides or behind. But they slowly add mechanics like guards who patrol back and forth across the map, moving 1 tile whenever you move, trap doors to move several tiles across the map in one move, locked doors which require collecting keys, large potted plants you can use to hide on the same tile as a guard, guard uniforms to sneak by guards of the same color, etc. I also like that it is not a twitch based puzzler, you can take as much time as you want to consider your next move.

 

5 chapters have 15 levels, and 2 chapters have 8 levels. It has a lot of gold trophies and a plat. Crossbuy PS4/Vita and it plays fine on the Vita. Can control it using the analog stick or touch controls.

Finally someone says this.  I've hidden in the shadows hoping somebody shared my belief.  When the game came out and I had no PS4 games, I was able to get it for $20.  Hated it then, never finished it and always thought I wasted money (even though it was a great deal at the time).

Now that the dust has settled, I think you guys have talked me out of a $5 Killzone rebuy. Maybe I'll stick with just Banner Saga and Hitman Go this sale.

Not everyone defines "AAA" the same... Nor does everyone value $5 the same.

Interesting debate though.

Why do I have the feeling that Killzone is on this bc it's set to be offered on PS Plus in the near future? Its like they are trying to push any last minute sales before they take the plunge

Man this is a bad sale. Is Killzone, Thief and Murdered Soul Suspect really the best AAA games they can offer? Those might very well be the 3 worst AAA games on the system outside of the new Homefront. And I already own a lot of the digital games like Outlast and Transistor because of PS Plus.

 

Some great deals for PS3 however.

I have heard that Journey is a great experience. I know almost nothing about it. Someone did tell me to try and do it all in one go. However, i don't usually have lots of time to game all at once. 30 minutes here and there. Still recommend?

Grabbed Hitman Go, Beach Buggy Racing and Riptide GP2 just now. Other than the first Need for Speed, I've got no other racing games and the prices and file sizes for the mobile ports were just right to have a little bit of arcade action on my PS4. Considering Terraria and the first Jackbox, but I couldn't get into Terraria on Vita and I don't play multiplayer games ever so I'm not sure if You Don't Know Jack is worth the $5.
