    Eh... nothing too interesting. I like Pacman Championship Edition DX and PixelJunk Shooter 2 being included though.

    Some really good games in there, though I have to admit Sony
    is being a little shady with these sales. It used to be many of the $9.99
    games would drop to 50% off during these sales and now they are only like this for
    Plus members. I would be a bit angy if I weren't a Plus member.

    Had Corps
    Great classic Contra action in HD!

    Chime Super Deluxe
    Awesome music/puzzle game in the same vein as Lumines.

    Pac-Man Championship
    proves you can take a 30 year old game and touch it up a bit.

    PixelJunk Shooter 2
    I loved the first game and can't wait to play this.

    Scott Pilgrim
    River City Ransom with smooth animation and amazing chipmusic!

    my ps+ free trial ran out the day before this sale. also some stuff is on sale that i just bought a week ago. i'm thinking of calling sony and asking if i can return my digital downloads and purchase them at the sale price (like any real store would do).

    another fun game but it feels like contra in slow motion. its hard to describe how sluggish it feels until you experience it. it is also really repetitive as you end up playing the same few levels over and over and over to earn enough cash to buy upgrades. i think its worth picking it up if you are a ps+ member but the $15 they want for it normally was a bit of a rip off.

    Meh, I would normally be excited for this, but I'm just so spoiled by Steam that this looks like crap.

    we got a steam sale (obviously), not sure about PSN though.

    I have to agree, this sale kinda sucks when you compare it to Steam.

    $10.50 for Dead Space Extraction is a steal, any sensible PS3/Move owner should buy it immediately.

    back to the future is fun but the puzzles are VERY simple for anyone who has been playing video games for awhile. the games get worse as they go on. i recommend you read/watch some reviews of it before you make the purchase.

    Anybody knows if this is the only week with sales or are they gonna bring new sales each week?

    Kinda stupid to call it summer sale when it's just a week.

    Interesting that it's still that high since Dead Space Extraction came bundled with Dead Space 2 Limited/Collector's Editions. I'd imagine people would have payed the extra few $ to get Extraction. For example I payed about 5€ more for the Collector's edition compared to the basic version. Extremely good game anywhoo:3

    Good to see that PSN has sales, but considering the prices of Steam sales, this is kinda meh and uninteresting.
