Video game company Capcom is offering special holiday prices for its games if purchased through the PlayStation Network or iOS.
For the PSN, the games will be $7.50, which half off. If the gamer is a PS Plus subscriber, the price goes down to $3.75. The games available for that deal are, Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 and Marvel Vs. Capcom: Origins.
The iOS games are only 99¢, and include Street Fighter X Tekken Mobile, Street Fighter 2 Collection, Street Fighter 4 Volt, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. The first three games are normally between $3 and $5 while Ghost Trick retails for $9.99.
"Updating you guys on amazing deals and sales here today, and they're happening on TWO fronts: iOS and PSN. Exact items and prices are all listed after the jump, but I must say that Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is definitely the highlight of this Holiday sale: it's only 99 cents, people!" Capcom announced on their blog.
Just this week a PlayStation Network storefront opened up on UK Amazon, to provide gamers a central hub for digital games, PS Plus subscriptions, DLC's, and season passes for the Sony consoles, Vita, PS3, and PS4. See the Amazon UK store here.
A PSN store opened in the U.S. last month on Amazon as well. That store offered a $5 savings back card. No such promotion has been announced for the UK branch yet.
This past Monday PSN was done as Sony was running standard maintenance on the site to improve PSP and PS Vita functionality.
"We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a planned network maintenance for PlayStation platforms scheduled for Monday, December 9th from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM Pacific Time (12 noon to 5:00 PM Eastern). To clarify, this is currently scheduled to be a 5 hour maintenance," PlayStation posted on their community forum.
