No doubt trying to squeeze a few extra bucks out of 360 users before the inevitable April announcement that Games On Demand games are non-transferrable to the new console due to 'architectural differences' or some such

75% off games that are already over 75% overpriced is not that good an offer tbh

That didn't occur to me, you have a damn good point sir.
It would be nice if this sale included the DLC as well.
This is my signature. Isn't it pretty?

Sony's marketplace purchases aren't going to carry over to the PS4, so it wouldn't be too surprising.

I just want to know how much Black Ops II is going to be. If it's going to be less than a physical copy of the game I will hold out; if not I'll probably pick it up in the next couple of days.

If you mean Vesperia, I wouldn't say so. It seems to run a lot slower than other games and I was a Tales fan. Could just be that my tastes have changed though.
