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'll wait for the $20-30 bin or free on ps plus...
I still want this game when the price drops way more. Deadpool has always been one of my favorite characters because he takes nothing serious. Lol
I am glad that Sony isn't just keeping the money. A real company actually cares about the people who use their products. Hammerpoint should really take a good long look at Sony and see how to treat their consumers.
at least sony gave people a refund
Too bad. Guess it's never too late to make amends. . . well, unless your making Colonial Marines. ;)
P.S. : The image of Reiner giggling over anything is a true theater of the mind joy.
I was hoping this game would be good.
Nice to see
