The lights are on
Readers mentioned to us yesterday that there was a discrepancy in the price of Activision's Deadpool, which is out this week. Retail outlets had the game listed at $49.99, with the PlayStation Network offering it up for $59.99. Fear not, digital denizens. Sony is making it right.
As part of the latest PlayStation Store update post on the PlayStation Blog, the company informed users that the price had been fixed and credits are coming. "We are aware of the Deadpool pricing discrepancy on PSN," says the notice. "If you purchased the game at $59.99 you will receive a $10 credit. Expect an XMB message with more info later this week."
Unfortunately, this doesn't fix the problems with the game. Executive editor Andy Reiner pointed out issues with the gameplay that prevented him from giggling like the Merc with a Mouth while playing it.
Deadpool is available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

I bet it was Deadpool himself finagling with the price, that would be just like him.
Still doesn't fix a broken game; I'm glad I stayed away from this one.
Well that's nice of them.
Well, at least they refunded it.
Yea I was wondering why the game was more expensive on psn. Good to see they corrected it.
At least Sony is righting their wrong.
you know a game is not that good when the developper wont show a video of the gameplay until the game release..no thnak you.
wait so is this game a let down? I haven't played it yet and tbh I didn't even know it had released yet
Andy Reiner? I'm pretty sure his first name is Andrew. Maybe cause everyone just calls him Reiner, so..
im personally having alot of fun with the game, if you come in expecting to play a silly action game and not a riveting heart wrenching story like bioshock you'll have fun with it of course it could also be because deadpool is my favorite comic book character
I blame deadpool, not sony, lol.
deadpool did it as a prank
