Another year? Oh time, where do you go?

The PSN has a flash sale at this moment. Some of the titles are sale are:

Of course, getting into PSN may be a problem as there seems to be some type of DDOS attack prefacing tomorrow’s PSN maintenance. So good luck logging in to the service.

Best Buy is offering the PS4 version of Bound by Flame for $35. Meanwhile, South Park: The Stick of Truth for the 360 and PS3 is $30. Finally, Diablo III and and Diablo III: Reaper of Souls are both $20 each.

Another year has passed for this column. The deals have slowed down; mostly due to a mix of fewer games and new systems. Fewer RPGs, I should say. Newer systems tend to have fewer games available during the first year in general. Also, the rise of platforms where players are allowed games via subscription has put the damper on some deals, and the digital versions are easier to mark down in price due to costing less up front for the publisher. I wish I’d picked up an issue of PSM where the cost for digital versus physical was broken down. It was one of the most informative articles ever written in the magazine’s lifespan. The future may hold change, but as always; I look forward to what the future may bring.

Happy Hunting.
