    I've been noticing over the past months that some of these sales prices are not accurate. For example, Rogue Galaxy is listed as 50% off with a price of $49.99. It is 50% off, but the PS Store has it priced at $7.49 with the discount. The same is true (with different final prices) for Wild Arms 3, Siren, Shadow of the Beast, Resogun, etc. I think it's fair to assume that any game listed here with a $49.99 price tag is not actually that expensive on the actual PS Store (I haven't checked them all, but every one I check is significantly cheaper than that on PSN).

    Additionally, Sega Mega Drive & Genesis Classics is listed here as 100% off and free. I rushed to the PS Store on my PS4 to see if that was the case, but that game doesn't even show as being on sale at all for me. I usually use this list just to see which games are on sale, ignoring the prices listed here and going to the PS Store to see what the discounted price actually is. But this Sega Collection is the first time I've noticed a game being listed as on sale here on the site and then not actually being on sale at all. Please don't view this as a complaint, I just wanted to point these things out as it hasn't just been a one-off thing for this week. The majority of these listings are accurate from week to week, but there are always some $49.99 weird cases popping in.

    *As a strange, somewhat related side-note, if I go to the PS Store website and search for "Sega" it will come back with search results but the title of the webpage on the tab at the top of the browser says "Access Denied." Then, when I click on the Sega Genesis Classics, I eventually get a 504 Gateway Time-out error. So it seems like something funky is going on with that title over on PSN...

    Yes, some of the sale prices have been inaccurate for some time now, also over on the EU sales page. I hope this is a simple bug, gets some traction, and is fixed fairly easily…

    I've noticed the same. Hope it's fixed as these TT lists are one of the easiest ways to browse through a PSN sale... provided the information is correct of course.
