Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time PS3/Vita for 39.99/29.99 - Should be all retailers!

According to the Playstation Blog: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/01/ ... t-winners/

They have the price listed for the PS3 and Vita versions as 39.99 and 29.99 respectfully. And in the comments they have replied and stated that it is not an error and that it seems some retailers have yet to update their prices.

The game features cross-buy you get the Vita version alongside the PS3 version for free (similar to PSA Battle Royale)!! Was planning on picking this up at launch for 60 anyways to support the cross-buy feature, but now at this price it just makes it easy!!

Good deal. Cross buy / Cross play is awesome. I like being able to continue leveling my characters in Battle Royal regardless if at home or at work (er I mean at the mall...)

That's great! I'd pay that price, no problem!
You just proved signatures work!

Now who would go and edit my signature for no valid reason, especially as it never violated any of the posted terms.... :lol:

Love the cross buy feature of PSABR. Hopefully this is an on-going trend.

This is something more new releases should be doing too, the prices drop so fast anyways and I don't typically buy day 1 anymore for that reason alone.

But I'd imagine lower release price would just cause more dlc abuse and give companies more of an excuse to release unfinished games (technical-wise, or game length/story-wise to make room for dlc, or sometimes both..)

$39/$29 - good deal!

Only one platinum though :( I'm gonna wait for whichever version drops to $19.99 first and use a Futureshop receipt coupon if available. Thanks for the info anyways

BestBuy has $5 off pre-orders, too. That makes the PS3 version $34.99, and you get the downloadable Vita version with it. Awesome deal!

Interesting. I preordered this in 2011, I think, as part of that crazy Futureshop E3 deal (preorder 3+ games and get $20 off of each). Hah, already got everything else (Rayman, Batman, AC: Revelations, Uncharted 3, NHL 12) ages ago and now this is finally set to arrive, already discounted! Ah well, still excited for it :)

This generation is over, whether people want to admit it or not. These lower prices shouldn't be surprising. I mean, just look at Plasyation All-Stars. A month after release it not only went on sale for $30 for PS3, but the official MSRP dropped to $40 also. Sony games tank in value fast.

The new Sly Cooper will be $20 before the summer.

Maybe if Sony focused on making complete, quality games instead of infesting their titles with Online Passes, overpriced DLC, and a total lack of marketing their games would retain their value much better. Nintendo's titles have no problem staying full price for years after release, which no doubt has something to do with the fact that Nintendo releases complete games without online passes or DLC.

No, that's Nintendo policy. It has nothing to do with the consumer's perceived value of titles. Even awful Nintendo-published games stay at full price for years sometimes.

I heard Nintendo won't allow their sub par games to be sold at lower. Anyways it's crazy to see now games going to 39.99 at release. This gen is over like the other dude said. Will see if we get much more stale games. I mean even at full prices games are getting boring.
