    There are some excellent games on this list. Unfortunately I won't be partaking in this sale. I just don't need any games at the moment.

    There's actually some pretty good games there, but surprisingly nothing really jumps out at me to get right this second. I dunno, maybe I will but yeah.

    I was almost tempted by Okami and The Run, but I just spend enough money on the EU sale, so I'll resist. I don't REALLY want them anyway, I'd just be buying them for the sake of it. Flower I'll wait till a decent sale on the flower/fl0w/journey triple pack.

    And to make things worse, when they've been pulled up on it, they used to spout BS at us, now we've seen through it, they just don't respond to our problems, ever.

    Best five minutes I ever spent opening an NA account.
    This is your life. And it's ending one minute at a time.

    That's far too common a theme with the gaming climate in general. When Euros and Ausfags like me get shafted by this kind of shit with release dates, prices and problems with games and whatnot it goes largely ignored it but when Americans don't get one thing WOAH BETTER STOP THE PRESSES AND MAKE ABOUT FIVE ARTICLES ABOUT WHY AMERICANS DON'T GET THIS ONE GAME and they will whine and whine and whine until they get what they want (see Operation Rainfall). Pfffft you Euros didn't get that? Shut the fuck up and stop whining but oh no we can because we're American.

    Really shits me.

    We almost never get sales on DLC here in North America.

    With flash sales like this I think you're not allowed to complain about not getting DLC sales. I'm not looking for DLC, I'm just looking for the main games.

    All three Mass Effects for $5.00 - that's an amazing price, DLC or not. Love that.
    Nobody but you...

    Been meaning to pick up the Mass Effect: Trilogy for some time and finally did it. Also grabbed Terraria for the PS4.

I just don't need any games at the moment.This is the eternal struggle with these sales. Most folks, like me, have a backlog of countless digital titles they bought on offer previously. Often a three-digit number of games. Yet seeing such quality games for so cheap, it's hard to fight the impulse to get such a deal. Even if you know you'll likely never play it. They are banking on people falling towards the latter of the two, of course. It's why Steam Sales and Humble Bundles make such a killing on PC.

It's why Steam Sales and Humble Bundles make such a killing on PC.And that makes Steam famous too, giving them the upper-hand in just about everything PC gaming related. Not on Steam? No Steam sales? Screw it, I'm not playing it until it's a fiver. If Sony could adopt this system across the board they will be rolling in it. Now time to convince the developers...some of whom are already on Steam...ow, my brain hurts already!
