    A total ripoff.

    That's why people are ditching the ZA store and using others.
    Steam? I was not aware you can buy PS4 games on Steam. How does that work exactly? Also, I don't have access to a credit card, and for some reason (which for the life of me I cannot figure out) my debit card doesn't work on online retailers. So my only option is to buy PSN prepaid vouchers from Raru and pay via direct bank cash deposit.

    Anyway, here are the games I've bought from the South African PSN Store:

    God Of War - Digital Deluxe Edition: R469
    Divinity Original Sin - Enhanced Edition: R159
    Batman - Return To Arkham: R249
    Resident Evil - Deluxe Origins Bundle: R159
    Uncharted 4 - A Thief's End: R329
    Deus Ex - Mankind Divided - Digital Deluxe Edition: R179
    Borderlands - The Handsome Collection: R189
    The Evil Within 2: R399 (only two months after it's release)
    Horizon Zero Dawn - Digital Deluxe Edition: R539.40
    Dead Rising: R129
    The Evil Within + season pass: R218
    The Witcher III - Wild Hunt - Game Of The Year Edition: R329
    Rise Of The Tomb Raider - 20 Year Celebration: R349
    Batman - Arkham Knight - Premium Edition: R329
    Mirror's Edge Catalyst: R159
    Doom: R249
    Alien - Isolation - The Collection: R289
    Until Dawn: R329
    Mortal Kombat XL: R399

    If you compare the prices of most games on Steam to the price of the same games on ZA PSN you'll start to notice a large price difference. As a quick example, this morning Forgotton Anne was listed as being on PSN in a flash sale, the special price of the game on PSN was still more than the default price on Steam. Start to compare prices and you'll see what I mean.

    Congrats on God of War btw, I also just bought it myself as well. Haven't started it yet though!
