PlayStation EU has launched their new “Big in Japan” sales, its counterpart to their PlayStation US Store’s “Golden Week” sales. It’s a very long list of games, but below you can find an overview of all of the discounted SEGA and Atlus games per system. We also included a few games from different publishers, but which have some connection to either SEGA or Atlus. Persona 5 is technically on sale as well, but in the EU the digital version has always been overpriced, and the 14% discount only brings it at the same price it was available on at launch in retail. The promotion runs until 19th July 2017.
On the EU PlayStation Store a large number of games are being discounted, and some of them are from SEGA and Atlus. In particular, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered and Odin Sphere Leifthrasir for the PlayStation 4 are part of the “PlayStation Plus Double Discounts”, meaning you get double the discount if you’re a PlayStation Plus member. This brings Valkyria Chronicles Remastered down to €7,99, definitely a good deal. There are also regular 65% discounts on Yakuza 5, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls for the PlayStation 3. You can find the links below. The discounts run until March 23.
Sony has launched its January Sales on the PlayStation Store, and it’s apparently the biggest sales they’ve ever had, with hundreds of games on sale. It also includes various SEGA and Atlus games, as well as Idea Factory’s Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls. In particular, all three Project DIVA games are on sale, as well as Yakuza 4, 5 and Dead Souls. Persona 4 Golden and its spinoffs are discounted as well, although the original Persona 4 Arena remains absent from the PlayStation Store ever since Atlus took over its distribution rights.
Catherine on PS3 receives a whopping 85% discount, bringing the game’s price down to a very low €2,99/£2.49. At that price, there’s little reason not to give this unique game a try. The same goes for Valkyria Chronicles Remastered at €10,99/£9.49. As usual, you can find the list of discounted SEGA and Atlus games and their prices below!
Atlus U.S.A. has announced that digital pre-orders for Persona 5 have gone live in the US and Europe. What immediately stands out though is the difference in price for both regions: $59.99 for the US compared to €69,99 (around $74.6) for the EU. While the US digital edition’s price is equal to the base US Steelbook edition, the EU digital edition is around €10 more expensive than the base EU physical “Steelbook” edition. I’m hoping this price is a mistake, as I don’t see a good reason for such a hefty price tag for the EU specifically. Especially since the UK price seems more in line with the US one, and is still $11 cheaper than the price in euro. I made a quick image showing the differences in price below. EU to the left, then US and then UK.
The Black Friday sales on the EU and US PlayStation Store will end soon, and since they include several Atlus games (on the EU store) and also Idea Factory International’s Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls (on the US store), we decided to make a quick article with an overview of what’s on offer. You can view that list below! The Black Friday sales end Tuesday, November 29.

As usual, we compiled them in the list below, with prices both in Euro and British Pound added for your convenience.
