Every now and then, Sony puts on a big sale for a large selection of games that people can buy from their digital stores at a discount. Sometimes the games are great, and other times they’re just mediocre and the sale is a bore. This time though, some of the offerings are pretty good, although the best games have the smallest discounts (obviously). Today, Sony announced that the Playstation store is having a flash sale, offering discounts on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita titles.

It’s time for more discounts on some top PS4PS3 and PS Vita games. Get up to 50% off a great lineup of titles starting right now. If you think you might pick one (or two, or three, or four) of the games on sale, act fast, because this Flash Sale ends at 6:00PM Pacific on Friday, January 31st.

From Killzone Shadow Fall and Knack on PS4, to Gran Turismo 6 and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on PS3, to Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition on PS Vita, the January Flash Sale is stocked with plenty of exciting games with some great discounts.

Pretty sweet sale this time around people, but… While I would love some of the more popular games to be a little more discounted, I can somewhat understand why they aren’t (they want money). What I still don’t get though, is why digitally downloaded games are the same price as physical media… Why is this? There’s almost zero cost to store it, there’s very little distribution costs (electricity, perhaps as a collective), and the ‘manufacturing’ and ‘packaging’ and ‘shipping’ costs are completely removed from the equation. On top of that, they don’t even have to give a cut to the middlemen, like Gamestop, Walmart, etc. Yet despite costing so little to the company, AND not having any resale possibility, people still buy digital downloads off of the store.

What are you guys… nuts?
