• PS3 Hacks , 25.11.2012

    This is an embarrassing mess for whoever messed up, recently Hitman: Absolution  was released, it and Sleeping Dogs retail for around $80 US, but a slip up seen both those games being sold on the Croatian store for 80 Kuna, which comes to just under $14 US, unfortunately, if you did not mange to get this awesome offer, there is no chance of doing so, as the Croatian PSN now blocks you from  adding funds to your account:

      Or you could always get the pirated copy from any torrent tracker for no price, cause it's ps3hax, right? Personally I have about 30 legal games, so I don't pirate every game.

      [MENTION=250752]Avversario[/MENTION], only 30 games? That really isn't much. :-|

      Anyway, this was a cool low price offer for Sleeping Dogs on PS3 but I prefer physical format so I wait for the games to drop down to cheaper, or buy second hand.

      New games for physical format should be around �30 to �35 and digital format, ten pounds less or �15 because it's just the game.

      1) Of course.
      2) Calm down and let everyone choose what they want unless they don't start interfere with other people.
      3) Never was going to ask. Search engine is the answer.

      Now I know that some users can easily be trolled. Don't judge everyone by their only one mesaage. Personally I've hacked my PS3 mainly because of console emulators, Mega Drive and SNES I think. There are so many good games for them, especially platformers and RPGs.

      You're right.

      Sometimes the Xbox 360 of a game is a bit more pricey than the PS3 version, but it also happens the opposite, on Amazon.co.uk.

      Like for example, Baja: Edge of Control is cheaper now on PS3 than Xbox 360.

      I am interested in purchasing this game but I don't have my PS3 right now.

      To the Topic:
      This may happen to any shop...
      But if you see the discounts on Steam (which are also only digital copies of the games) even on newer games [today dishonored and Borderlands 2 with a 50% Discount] it would be possible it wasn't even a real mistake.

      The main theme of this site is PS3 CONSOLE hacking. We have no links or hosting of pirated content. Posting an NFO is not posting a link to torrents, usenet, etc...

      In Brazil we do not have this problem of lying, we admit that we are pirates.
      Look scene sites like Nowfragos for example, the slogan are:
      "Piracy is Crime! Dont Steal Ships!"

      By your logic, my name on this forum is GregoryRasputin, so that MUST mean that I am the real Russian monk.

      Regarding the NFO posting [MENTION=1]Pirate[/MENTION] did that to stop people spamming release threads.

      I don't f*cking lie idiot, having a hacking site is NOT the same as having a f*cking piracy site.
      We approve of hacking because we own the devices, we don't approve Piracy, because that is not what we are about.

      I really cannot see the connection between pirating games and PS3hax. But ok, maybe its just me that is retarded. Or its you.
      Of course I need to defend myself, so I know which one I'd pick.

      Also, now that the Wii U is out I noticed those games are now going for $60 as well. Wii games always went for $50 on release day. Shame.

      This is a site for piracy. You even try to make money out of it. Hypocrite.

      Why do we degenerate into flaming and trolling every time the word piracy is mentioned in a thread? So, it's a site about hacking, and a byproduct of that hacking is piracy. We all know that. But that doesn't mean everyone is ok with piracy. In addition to that, I'm sure if the admins and mods publicly condoned piracy the "powers that be" would not look kindly upon it, so knowing that, why would they condone or "admit" anything of the sort?
      I guess what I'm saying is that it's not an argument that can be "won" by either side, so let's all just agree to disagree and leave it at that, shall we?
      Back on topic, I wish I had caught that sale in time, as I generally cannot afford games until they hit ebay, so getting a new one would have been a treat.

      Of course I am retard, I never hacked my PS3 to play to play pirate games, unlike you, I'm not living in my mummy's basement, I can afford to buy my games.

      Also I do not see how one makes money out of piracy on this site, so call your mums vagina a hypocrite for giving birth to your lame ass.

      Am I the only one who remembers original Atari and original NES game cartridges retailing for $50-$60USD in the 80's? I recall Final Fantasy 3 being $80 on release day. To me the prices never really changed, they were cheaper for a while in the late 90's and with the original Xbox and PS2 games selling for $50... but dang... I can always remember paying $60 for brand new releases back in the day. So if anything inflation is the one area that never hit console game prices. Perhaps its time for you price complainers to put down the call of duty and be a useful member to society and get a real paying job. Then you guys wont have to cry about the price of games to justify why you are a dirty pirate every other post. (comment not directed at the OP)

      I can't believe this great topic was spammed with mentalities that think Hacking = Piracy.

      Hardly ever does Sony sell a game at such a low price and when they do people rather talk about something else than stay ontopic.

      People in Croatia are POOR (generally speaking, they don't have much $$ to spend on video games)

      Average Salary in Croatia is: 600$/month.

      Even with 13$ game price it's still much for some people.

      Like people in USA do have at least 1500$+ monthly salary.


      I live 150 miles from croatia capital, and have 600$ salary, and i buy only very best games while i pirate other

      You make it seem like the average salary of Croatia is the worst, did you know how low the salary in Portugal is? Around 300� to 400� while the thieves from the banks and gov get over much more than 1000� per month.

      Yeah, the guys over these aren't happy and they're not about to take more crap from the government.

      The cost of life in Portugal can be low (food, drinks, energy, rent, etc), but without a way of earning money (job) it makes it hard to have a decent life.

      A big LOL here. XD
      I remember the same happened with Amazon and their previous generation tablets. The sold each one of them in a part of the world for like 22-ish dollars instead of 199 because of a currency error which caused them a huge problem since in that country there were dozens pre-ordered and they could not do anything and the device was already getting sold at a loss so they were financialy screwed up.

      Hmm, I can't say too much on prices of games around the master system/nintendo era as I was too young to really realize what stuff cost. Though I was old enough during the SNES/Genesis age and I always remember them being right at $50 (unless of course it was Mario RPG, Starfox or something else that used the FX chip). Yeah everything was $50 ps2 and xbox because I remember *****ing when the 360 came out and I was like "$60, WTF... and I just got my own place! Rent or video games!?" Then C4eva, wiikey and Geohotz came around :D

      He didn't say they go for $80 in the US. And since 60� or 8000 yen translates to roughly US$75 and US$95 respectively, he is technically correct. :P
      And yeah I've seen PS3 games for 70� (hell even 75) on local retail shops, but online it's always 60.

      People only pay high amounts of money if they want because they can import from other countries which could be cheaper than buying locally.

      TheHut/Zavvi sends me discount codes all the time of 10% but what I want is still at �14.95 not �9.95 and it doesn't feel worth that much even. It's kind of a mediocre game, anyway.

      Sorry my Robotic English im Brasilian and Speak portuguese no english.
      Games (and game consoles) are expensive in Brazil because of import taxes / tax burden, its not Sony fault.
      (Jogos e consoles s�o caros aqui no Brasil devido �s tarifas de importa��o e impostos sobre jogos; n�o � culpa da Sony)
