So I've had a one-time unique code through on email for the Playstation store that got me 40% off all games (excluding pre-orders).

So I could buy Resident Evil 2 for under £27 for example - not bad! I've not done that because I didn't want to spend that on any one game given I probably won't get to it for a while.

What I have just bought though are Yakuza Zero (£5.39), Moss (£8.99), Pyre (£3.89), and Dishonored - The Complete Collection (£9.59 for 1 & 2 + Death Of The Outsider). All were already on offer so with an extra 40% off it was only £27.86 for the lot!

Very happy with that! Everyone else had a code and picked up some bargains?
No sadly not. Since letting my PS+ lapse for the first time in 5 years I have received various 25% off PS+ emails though.

Yeah mine is lapsed at the moment (has been for 6-9 months I think) as I simply don't play online on PS4 (all my online buddies are Xbox based).

Maybe I made it onto some list of people they're trying to stimulate a bit of spend out of. I didn't play a massive amount of PS4 last year vs Xbox & Switch (just Vanishing of Ethan Carter, COD: Infinity War & Spider Man). It's not like I've not being using it recently though as I have just played through Detroit and jumped straight into Shenmue.

Well now I feel bad...

I'd share the love but it was specifically a one-time use code, so now that I've cashed it in I can't hand it round. I did just try just in case it was glitched (which is not impossible with good old janky PSN!) but just got a "This discount code has already been redeemed" message.

What you guys need to do is just not play or buy much Playstation stuff for the next 12 months and get on the same "previous big spenders that have stopped spending" list and I'm sure you'll get a code!

Easy!

Superhot is on sale over on Steam.
That, combined with my general interest AND it's inclusion on the 2019 C&R made it a pretty easy purchase.

Plus, Hotline Miami is $2.50 over on Humble. I've heard it mentioned so many times, C&R deserve a cut of that purchase.

Is this something I could/should play without any prior knowledge of the series?

Same here, its an excellent jumping on point, especially with 1 and 2 having already been remastered for PS4, and 3, 4 and 5 current gen ports hopefully also coming to the West soon.

It’s funny the moment I stop subscribing to ps now I get an email saying come back for a pound. So I subscribe for a month then cancel and wait a few months for them to offer it to me again.

In the last year I’ve spent under the one month normal subscription fee but had about 4 months of the service. If the service was cheaper I probably wouldn’t cancel but it’s too expensive to keep ongoing when I barely use it

I just bought Tetris Effect in the weekend flash sale. Not too big of a discount, but juuuust enough to push me over the edge.

...I hear Darren has some scores worth breaking? :P
