Sony Does ‘An Apple’, PSN Games On Sale For 80p

It looks like Sony have been keeping an eye (finally!) on the App Store, slashing the price of a rack of PlayStation Network games over in Japan. have picked up on a lovely PixelJunk sale, where all of the games are on discount there for just 100 Yen.

That’s about 80p.  The sweetspot for impulse purchases (for me, at least) on the App Store is 69p – I’ll normally buy something regardless, but these are PixelJunk games – they’re all brilliant and at that price it’s a little bit crazy to pass them up.


Here’s the list:

  • PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap
  • PixelJunk Monsters
  • PixelJunk Monsters Encore DLC
  • PixelJunk Eden
  • PixelJunk Eden Encore DLC
  • PixelJunk Shooter
  • PixelJunk Shooter 2

Each game should (says the site) be playable in English if your system language is set to English, so if you’ve got a Japanese account and some spare cash on there, we suggest you take a look – the only thing missing is SideScroller, the studio’s most recent title.

Good stuff.  SCEE, can we have something similar please?



  1. Hope this spreads over to the UK.. Great pricing for some great games there.

  2. Funny how your perceptions are so easily altered isn’t it. The Oatmeal said it best:

  3. Amazing.

    Great way to generate huge interest in your back catalogue whilst drawing attention to your latest release

  4. I am a big fan of Pixeljunk but never got round to picking up Shooter 2 despite the missus and I playing Shooter 1 together loads. Never a better time it seems :)

  5. Make this a worldwide thing before Vita’s release and market it to hell Sony. Vita will need games at prices like this as well as the Uncharteds etc if it really is going to succeed.

  6. Shame I don’t use my Japanese PSN, I haven’t used it in like over a year now.

  7. No way, rip off Sony, that’s 11p more than games on istore, why should I pay 11p more? Joke, rip off.

    • *skips off merrily and purchases eleven penny sweets*

      Ooo… cola bottles!

  8. I have yet to buy a single game of the PixelJunk franchise. Very interested in Eden because of the musical aspect of the game… I hope this offer makes it to Europe.

    • You’re missing out, I played some Monsters coop literally just this morning.

      Really hope this happens everywhere, there are still a couple I don’t have yet.

  9. All those games are well worth it, hopefully we’ll see a similar offer in eu.

  10. Sounds like Pixeljunk are doing an experiment. If they sell loads they’ll do it elsewhere.
