PlayStation Network Sale: Five Games Get Temporary Price Reduction

I know that is not a snappy or clever headline, but if I get too slick with something like this, it just sort of looks like an ad.

WITH PRICES LIKE THESE, SONY MUST BE INSAAAAAAAAAAANE

In addition to posting Brain Challenge and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix up on the PlayStation Store this week, Sony also announced a temporary price cut for a handful of games.

The following games will be available for $4.99 until 12/4/2008.


That is a much more palatable price for a game like The Last Guy, which is clever but also extremely repetitive. Also, as I seem to be the one person on Earth who thinks that PixelJunk Eden isn't all that great, I wish I had picked it up for five bucks instead of... uh... however much they were originally charging.

Novastrike and Commando 3 aren't so hot, but their low level of hotness is probably a lot more forgivable at the $5 point.

And echochrome... maaaaan, I really wanted to love echochrome. But this whole "spatial awareness" thing is apparently not my forte. Maybe that's why I was always so awful at solving Rubik's Cubes. GAME AM TOO HARD FOR TINY BRANE BUT ME STILL LIKE ART STYLE (ALSO: ROCKS). Paying $5 to be told that you're an idiot is, at least, better than paying $10. Or $15.
