Sony Europe have dropped the price of Battlefield 3 (or, rather, EA has) on the PlayStation Network as the second of the 12 Deals of Christmas rolls into action. Valid until the 4th, PS3 owners can now pick up last year’s EA shooter for the bargain price of £30.
Bargain? Well, not really. That’s half the RRP, of course, but who on earth would think £60 is a fair price in the first place?
And, as ever, the typically vocal PlayStation Blog readership are voicing their disapproval over this latest deal. “£29.99 would be too expensive even at a non-sale price,” says one, with another calling the first two “very disappointing”. The first deal was a month’s free PlayStation Plus when you bought two month’s worth.
It’s entirely possible to grab Battlefield 3 – on disk (and with the appropriate re-sale value to factor in) – for around £20. One commenter says Morrisons had the game for 98p.
