Looks like an awful sale. Just awful.
Skyrim for £25 is a sale? My word.
Persona 5 39.99 lol..
It always puzzles me that game publishers want less pre owned stock on retail shelves (as they get nothing from sales of second hand games) yet continue to make their digital games ridiculous in price, and it costs them nothing in production costs!

I would love to do a mass experiment and have something like Call of Duty WW2 cost £29.99 digitally, and scrap physical copies and see what happens. PC has pretty much done it and are doing just fine.

Not digging those prices, tbh
Persona 5 39.99 lol..
Prey looks tempting. Slightly cheaper to buy on disc, though, if you prefer that medium.
Shocking prices just shocking....

It's certainly not enough saving to justify buying it.
Thanks OP FIFA 17 bargain
I'm struggling to remember a 'Sale' this bad.
DBD special edition can be had as a physical copy with soundtrack at Base for £17.99. Prey is also £14.99 now at most retailers for a physical copy. Great if you only buy digital, but still a hearty mark up compared to online retailers

not even remotely, my experience is exactly the opposite of yours
Rocket league for £9.59 is a great little price to be honest for anyone who missed out on it being free with ps+ a few years ago. It's one of the best games of this generation for under a tenner, so although it's been cheaper, if you havn't bought it, now is the time to invest

prey was cheaper retail
dead by daylight at base
persona 5 cheaper retail

digital needs to be cheaper then retail
come on guys, be grateful at these prices, at least that PSN wallet will not take a hit this weekend!

although golf club 2 seems interesting

Yep; no manufacturing,no discs, no boxes, no manuals, no shipping, no stores taking a cut... It's completely and utterly baffling. I wonder if the small number of people blindly paying the ridiculous digital launch prices ("whales" if you like) make it worthwhile sticking with the current method.

They have to keep digital prices high, otherwise people would not buy physical and stores would stop selling them. They would loose the whole distribution channel, would need to rely on digital alone. They don't want that.

Well DVD and Blu-ray went that way. Remember Blockbuster Videos? Or my local Global Videos? Or whatever local store you used to pick up movies from on rental.

The digital age happened.

Consoles just haven't caught up.

If gamers weren't given the choice, they'd have to go digital, just like Steam forced it on PC.

The world can't be a charity to businesses that aren't required anymore. When technology advances, we have to move on.

In 50 year's time, gamers will tell their grandchildren about discs, when they are streaming games over gigabit fibre Internet connections.

I always imagine it's something to do with the selling of the consoles rather than the games. I don't think anyone makes profit on consoles, so if stores had games taken off them I don't think they would be inclined to continue selling consoles, which wouldn't do Sony any favours. Just my opinion but it seems to make sense. Either that or Sony rely on disabled and drunk people that pay £59.99 for Watch Dogs 2.

Nintendo always make a profit on their consoles. They have every generation of I'm not mistaken.
Ferg is right, Sony and Microsoft at the moment still rely on retail to shift consoles which besides Nintendo don't make a profit, if retail can't profit from new and pre-owned games then they will stop stocking the consoles and that's a big problem

To be fair Microsoft did try and bring the Xbox one out as all digital hardware but people kicked off and the backlash from that E3 event made them take a new direction adding the drive and disc games.

Exactly this. It wouldn't be good for consumers either. How often on here are games cheaper physically than digitally? Most of the time. That's because of the competition among retailers. If Consoles go digital and the only place you can buy PS games is the Sony store or the only.place you can buy XBOX games is from MS prices won't come down. Monopolies are never good.

It's still very easy to buy CDs, vinyl, DVDs and Blu-rays. Those forms of entertainment have not gone fully digital, not even close.
I bought infinite warfare cheaper last Christmas when it was only out 2 months....crap sale,the Star Wars thing was good the other day though.

Thank God for the backlash. The original xbone was horrible.
Best price for Tales of Berseria in a while at least.

Im thinking of buying it. Is it worth getting the GOTY or just the base?
Not sure what everyone's complaining about @BubaMan . Persona 5 is only £22
I have played it this weekend and really got into it - can't understand the criticism it's getting
FIFA price looks ok. My nephews got a PS4 today and I passed that on to my sister and they snapped it up.

And loads of second hand businesses close down and then publishers push up price of digital games

Just the base i'd say, not really much point in paying extra for the cars until you know you want to play it alot
