PS4 Exclusives Discounted on European PlayStation Store

Knack punches Killzone's price

The price of PlayStation 4 games have been nothing short of extortionate in the UK since launch, with some titles retailing at up to £64.99 ($110) depending on where you shop. Fortunately, the figures are slowly starting to come down, with both Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein: The New Order commanding much more manageable fees at the time of typing.

Perhaps acknowledging that its roster of launch titles no longer warrant full price, Sony has dropped the cost of Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack to £34.99. That’s actually an £18 reduction, and puts the digital versions largely in line with retail outlets such as Amazon.co.uk. You can still get these games cheaper if you shop around, but this represents a decent discount if you’re done with physical discs.

Of course, one could speculate that this may foreshadow some form of PlayStation Plus update, with Mark Cerny’s family friendly brawler a prime candidate for the Instant Game Collection. Are you aiming to take advantage of these savings, or are you waiting to see what future PlayStation Plus updates hold? Stash your cash in the comments section below.

The launch prices for digital titles was pretty disgraceful in the UK particularly. You can pick up second hand copies of killzone for under £15 quid. Regardless I'm always going to prefer physical.

Is digital data not pre-owned? It's kind of like sony bought a special copy of wolfenstein and if you give them 50 quid, they will copy it to your hard drive.

Sony trying to get as much money from Knack and Killzone this month as they can seeing as one will be on PS+ next month (likely Knack) as the year-long title.

Wow...that is absolutely crazy. I cannot believe they are still charging so much for the digital versions (pre-"sale").

I think @rastamadeus is right. Knack will probably be the year-long freebie. Although it doesn't really excite the overall userbase. Maybe they would do like a single player or multiplayer only version of Killzone along with knack.

Digital prices were ridiculous at launch it's silly that Sony have taken so long to change the prices.
