Siren: Blood Curse On Blu-Ray Temporarily Cheaper Than The Digital Download

image For whatever reason Sony Computer Entertainment passed on releasing Siren: Blood Curse in stores. Every other region got a retail release and this week the Asian version, Siren: New Translation, is only $24.99 at Play-Asia.


The digital download costs $40 in the good old USA if you purchase all of the episodes. So you save around $12 after shipping. Not a bad deal for something you can’t even purchase at Gamestop. Like all PlayStation 3 games this is region free and it’s in English so there aren’t any import barriers to worry about.


Also Play-Asia has the region free version of Naruto: Broken Bond on sale for $24.99. That’s less than half the price the game costs in the USA. If I wasn’t over saturated in Naruto games I would pick this up, but I think I need a break from the orange ninja.

    LOL i finished this game last week and returned it to the shop for refund. Had an argument there with the store person and she said something about copyright infringement policy so I told the b**** to get the manager. They gave up and gave me a complete refund.

    so you finished the game, and asked your money back?

    I can’t say I don’t sympathize with the store then, one thing is “the game sucks I couldn’t play it for more than 5 minutes” other is “hey, I beat the game now give me my money back” they’re not a renting service after all and that wait you paid zero for it; which kinda sucks.

    Not a reason to be proud of IMO.

    I really enjoyed the game, though it got really weird halfway through the story (in a not-so-bad way), and then ended even more weirdly (in a bad way).

    But it was a shame that SCEA wouldn’t be gather statistics on its North American success, considering most of the Serie’s North American fans probably bought the Asian version.
