"Pay up, or give the game back"

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.
