Pricing gaffes are quite common on digital storefronts, but we reckon that Sony will be ruing the error that it made with Killzone: Shadow Fall overnight. Originally spotted by money saving specialists Hot UK Deals – and verified by a slew of excited Twitter accounts all over the web – Guerrilla Games’ first-person exclusive could be purchased for just £0.85 ($1.42) from the British PlayStation Store in the early hours of this morning.
The blunder – which has now been rectified – allowed tight players to download the entire 38.2GB game after purchasing the cheap and cheerful Mercenary Playercard Icon Pack. Considering that the title ordinarily retails for an outrageous £52.99, that’s some saving. It’s not entirely clear whether the console maker will honour the deal, but we reckon that it would be a bit shady if it doesn’t. After all, this is only going to aid the outing’s already impressive sales numbers.

I saw this on hotukdeals but I didn't really believe it after going to the PSN store, I just assumed it was linked to the free multiplayer week. I already have it anyway and trade in value isn't that much as you can buy pre owned copies for around £15. It would be interesting to see the number of downloads in the past 24 hours...
They were on the ball with getting it off fast eh? And yet, Pixeljunk Monsters (the free game of the month on PS+) is still full price. Good job Sony.
I managed to download pixel junk, I don't recall if it was from link via app or direct from vita, anyways I got it.
I remember getting the full digital version of Uncharted Golden Abyss added to my account for pennies when I bought the Treasure Map Pack DLC. That's still in my download list, so I'm guessing they'll honour it.
Well I got it, or so I think, hopefully... When I get my PS4 this month
