While gamers were clamoring for a discounted copy of their favorite games like Assassin’s Creed III, Dishonored and Call of Duty, the PlayStation Store in Croatia were having a Black Friday deal of its own. However, the staff was not aware of it.

The Accidental Black Friday Mistake from PlayStation Croatia

It appears that the huge discounts appearing on PlayStation Croatia were an accident. There were reports that the new release of Hitman: Absolution, which costs about $80 in the United States, was priced at 80 KN or roughly $13.

Because of the huge discount, people started scooping up as many accounts as possible to sell on the PSN black market. On the other, PlayStation Store Croatia removed the ability to PSN funds while they are fixing the problem. As of this writing, everything is now back to normal.

Discounted PS Vita Titles on the Next Update

On the other hand, it was reported that Sony is planning to give discounts to certain PlayStation Vita titles in the next US PlayStation Store update. According to CVG, the following titles will receive a discount and will cost $17.99:

  • Little Deviants
  • Reality Fighters
  • Hot Shot Golf: World Invitational
  • MLB 12: The Show
  • Reality Fighters
  • Wipeout 2048
  • ModNation Racers

In addition, Unit 13, Resistance Burning Skies, and Smart As will be priced at $26.99. Meanwhile, Uncharted: Golden Abyss can be purchased for $35.99.

However, it is unknown whether these discounts are just temporary or will be permanent. This only means that readers should keep themselves updated once the PS Store update is released tomorrow.
