Has anyone else noticed that the "PSP Price Drops" section on the store has the original 'before drop' pricing again?
I'm almost positive that there was another week left on the offers, yet we're only on Friday and the pricing has risen again. Even though the titles are still listed in the "Price Drops" section.
I'm also sure I looked last night, and the prices were still on "sale", so this change has been within the last 12 hours.
It's up to Sony how they get our money, and up to us to decide if they are worthy of receiving it.
But, ending "sales" and/or offers early is wrong in my opinion.
I was looking forward to taking advantage of some of the price drops today (payday), safe in the knowledge that I had a clear 4 days, at the least, before the prices returned to normal.
I probably wouldn't have noticed, but it was the price of the Persona 3 Portable and the Persona 2 / Trails in the Sky bundle that caught my attention.
As it stands they are priced at £23.99 and £39.99 respectively. When the last time I looked, they were around £13.99 and £23.99 respectfully.
At least, that's what I remember. And the reason I was interested.
Another note I wish to raise, is that I, and probably quite a few others, would see the term "Price Drops" as a permanent thing. And not expect the prices to raise again.
This is further supported by the words "Sale" and "Offer" that have been repeatedly used before now.
Weather my interpretation of the use of the English language and it's literal terminology is of consequence or not, the fact of the matter here is that this "Price Drop" has ended abruptly. And without reason.
The only reason I can see is to fool lesser attentive persons than myself into purchasing these titles at their full price, under the influence of believing they are still on sale.
A tactic that I am almost positive is a violation in trading standards.
Especially with the titles in question being left in the "Price Drops" section, when they are at full price.
Or does this mean that when they are removed from the "Price Drops" section, the price will further increase?
These 'Atlus' published titles mentioned aren't the only ones in question. I merely used them as an example.

It's clear to me that last week's SALE items, which included these Ghostlight/Laughing Jackal titles, somehow got added to the list of price drops.
This is an error. Hence all the problems. Correctly added Price Drops will stay at the lower prices.
