    Journey, Tokyo Jungle and Skullgirls all seem like good deals (Although I can't play fighters :P) I hope this comes to Europe too

    $3.75 for Tokyo Jungle? I might have to buy that.

    Also I highly recommend Retro City Rampage to anyone who hasn't played it yet. Good shit right there.

    Ok, guys, Tokyo Jungle and Journey are each on sale for $7.50 for non-plus members. No one with a PS3 and a decent internet connection has an excuse to skip out on them now. Journey is one of the greatest art games on the market right now, and Toyko Jungle has cats fighting raptors.

    No excuses!

    Yeah, when I saw Journey, I was like "well, now I pretty much HAVE to buy it."

    Tokyo Jungle is a title that, at the PS+ price is totally worth the shot, but Journey? The only thing holding me back befoe as the price.

    Looks like that's over.

    I'ma be buying a large chunk of the list, I think.

    If Tokyo Jungle came to the Vita at that price, I'd buy it.

    Journey... $3.75... Holy shit. I need this. :D

    Yeah.. Journey and Tokyo Jungle will be surefire purchases at 3.75 each (whatever that may translate to in AUD) Limbo as well i think.. maybe a fiar chunk of this as, having started my own business now, i'm kind of poor. This will keep me occupied a long while for minimal cost.

    Thank you for this sony! lol

    Journey and Tokyo Jungle. Grab em both my Playstation brethren. I played both at a friends and I am sad that I do not have playstations for them.

    And so its US only these sales. Ahh fuck you sony
