How cute. In the face of the universally loved Steam Summer Sale, Sony is also playing catch up with a sale of its own. For several years in a row now, Sony has dropped the price of its games for a week in the shadow of its well-known competitor, and generally, the reaction has been pretty positive. There's always been a few titles I've wanted to snag for the cheap price, and I've walked away feeling like a got a bargain.
However, this year its hard to get behind. I've been a good boy and haven't dropped a cent on the Steam Summer Sale this year, but I'm not tempted to take that saved money and spend it here. Let's take a quick look at the sale.

Ehhhhh, I'm trying to find something I want, but I'm coming up short. I sang a lot of praise about Deception IV: Blood Ties before it came out, and I still really want to play it, but I've become such a cheapskate that even $20 for a video game seems too expensive for me these days. I'll hold off on that one for a bit longer.
If there is anything I want here, it would be the indie hit OlliOlli. I've heard nothing but positive things about it, and the price is also right. Maybe I'll drop the clams and give it a go once the sale goes live on Wednesday.
Man, this world of sales has really changed my perspective on how much I deem normal to spend on a video game. Does $60 seem too much to you nowadays. Does $20!?
