BG&E PSN Price Adjusted

Thank goodness.

There were a few shocked faces this week when Beyond Good & Evil HD was released at a price of £12 on the PSN. No one knew why a game costing about £7 on the Xbox would vary so drastically on the PS3.

Well it seems it was an error, as the EU PlayStation Twitter account has just confirmed:

“Beyond Good and Evil was priced incorrectly, this has now been changed to £7.99/€9.99. Customer who bought at higher price will be refunded.”

Well why are you still reading this? Go! Go now!

      Assuming it’s still a 20% reduction, then I think it works out at £6.39/€7.99.

        For £6.39 I think I’ll get it, was going to last night when I signed up for my free PSN but was put off that it was a tenner with the discount.

    I love that they say ‘customer who bought it’ as in ONE person paid £11.99! And now we know WHO it was! Nice work, Jim! :)

    Forget that. What I was pissed at was the cheek of Sony trying to charge £50 for Infamous 2. You can buy the boxed version for £38 so how do they justify £50 for a digital product? Disgraceful.

      Did you not read the debate about this on yesterdays comments section in the article where the price was listed? We don’t need to have the same debate again, surely?

      Probably because of prices like this:

      They can’t afford to undercut their retailers, and with Amazon charging that much in France, well…
      People in the UK, and to a lesser extent, Ireland, are lucky with what we pay for games.

      Just buy the retail version, no point getting annoyed by it. Win win really, cheaper and the option to trade in later.
