    Getting LBP Karting, House of the Dead, and Psychonauts for sure. Still deciding on Hot Shots Golf

    I also love Best Buy literally just had LBP Karting for 20$ on sale yesterday, they must have had some insider info.

    My sis works at Best Buy so she gets employee discount. These type of games are things we get for $2. But I have a few prepaid cards so I'll use them. My sister can't ALWAYS get games you know?

    You know what I always wondered, why is it only Nintendo stuff bought on the eShop make you pay tax?

    I mean when I bought stuff on the PS3 or Xbox, you don't pay tax. Something costs $4.50? You pay $4.50. Not 4.80 or whatever it would come up to.

    I don't pay tax on E-Shop. Can't you just change your zip code or whatever? It's not like it troubles your purchase eligibility.

    Some services factor tax into the price beforehand and just show you the total. Tax in most areas is a static percent on the base unit.

    Like, say the tax is 5% on the dollar, so you charge $28.56 internally, and 105% of that is 29.988, round up to the nearest cent for $29.99 that gets charged to the customer.
    (If they were truncating instead of rounding the initial price would be $28.57, but we all know they want to round up a cent.)

    Anyways the reason it's not being displayed normally is probably because they're not charging based on the customer, but based on their company location, and technical crap like that.

    I will get the NiGHTS Into Dreams, I played hours of that game on my Saturn back in the 90's.

    Guh- we come down hard on straight piracy but tax evasion (international no less) is quite OK....

    Some nice games on sale though.

    I read this last night on the Playstation Blog and I'll nab Jet Set Radio, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Ratchet and Clank, and Psychonauts (I have the PC version but it's something I'd prefer on a console).

    Hurray for Playstation Plus discounts.

    Huh, seems like the Playstation Store is getting pretty Steam-y.

    It is cheaper to get Jak and Dexter collection from amazon or else where if you want all 3 games.
