[PS4] Big in Japan Sale - AI: The Somnium Files $39.95 AUD, God Eater 3 $30.95 AUD, & More @ PlayStation Store AU

680

Some titles that I'm personally interested in and/or already own (taken from the AU PS Store, thus all in AUD):

For the most part, given the current AU/US exchange rates, the Australian PS Store will give you slightly better prices. In some cases, it's utterly ridiculous, for example Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed is $6.71 AUD, while it's $8.99 USD (~$14 AUD) in the US PS Store.

On the other hand, there are also examples like Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection, where it's $54.95 AUD, while it's only $21.99 USD (~$35 AUD) in the US PS Store.

So for the best prices, double check the individual availability and price of the game you're interested in on both:

And maybe even the PS Stores of other regions, to see which store has that particular game cheaper.

  • Great effort with the links and price formatting :)

  • Damn, was hoping the Akiba's Trip discount would apply to the Vita version. Pretty decent deals regardless.

  • Ah shoot, was holding out for this sale, but Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition didn't make the cut. Guess I'm going to have to pull the $38 trigger at ozgameshop.

  • I loved the Zero Escape games, I might grab Somnium Files.

  • I've been waiting for this to go on sale for a few months and it finally did last night. Did not expect such a steep discount but I'm not complaining.

  • thanks - as op states check both stores if u have both types of account.

    good deals on both.

  • No Nier: Automata, Bummer. Some good prices though

  • Which ones would you recommend to look into OP?

    • Akiba strip

    • Not op, but I strongly recommend the Yakuza games to anybody who doesn't mind have no English voice acting.

    • Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed is a silly and fun beat 'em up game set in Akihabara (the otaku capital of Japan, aka Akiba), where you fight against artificial vampires by stripping them in combat. For $6.71, it's hard to go wrong with this one.

      If you're not familiar with visual novel games/story-telling, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a great entry point. The first three games (the ones in the trilogy) are time tested classics that are still generally recognised as being the best in the series, and the trilogy release is a HD remaster with reworked art, improved script, and quality of life improvements that came with some of the later games.

      God Eater is basically Monster Hunter with the "anime" dial turned up to 11, and much of the same reasons that a person would love or loathe the MH series also applies to GE. Every game has a new player character protagonist, so there's no need to play any of the prior games. Anyway, there's a demo, so give it a try yourself.

      Persona Dancing is more for existing fans of the modern Persona games, though IMO they're pretty good rhythm games in their own right. Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection actually contains three games in one, with Persona 3 Dancing and Persona 5 Dancing, as well as Persona 4 Dancing (a port of the original PS Vita game). Only Persona 4 has a real story, while P3 and P5 Dancing has what amounts to an excuse plot. Give the P3 and P5 Dancing demos a try, and if you do decide to buy it, make sure to get it from the US PS Store.

    Thanks OP for finding this - just picked up these
    Yakuza Zero 13.95 was 24.95
    Valkyria Chronicles 4 19.45 was 47.95
    Dragon Quest XI 42.47 was 84.95

  • Dragon’s Dogma is pretty tempting at $13.95. I did tell myself I was going to stop buying games and try to whittle down my back catalogue though…

  • Came here thinking this was about the German band Alphaville.

  • Just finished Yakuza 0, so Yakuza Kiwami 2 for $18 is a pretty good deal!

    Has anyone played Judgement?

  • Bought the street fighter 30th anniversary edition for $18.

  • Yakuza 6 is at historical low.

  • The PS4 versions of Final Fantasy 7-9 are half price too. Good time to get them for people that have completed the remake

  • Some are very good deals. Sadly no Samurai Shodown :(

  • Sweet yakuza 2 under $20 done!
