Here’s the fourth game to be included in the PlayStation 12 Deals of Christmas sale.
December’s PlayStation Store promotion jingles on with discounts on two versions of Need for Speed Payback. Both the Standard Edition and Deluxe edition are reduced by 50% . In the UK this brings the price down to £29.99 and £39.99, respectively.
It’s far to say that Need for Speed Payback wasn’t met with a positive reception from either critics or players. Its obtuse, card-based upgrade system, and use of micro-transactions, proving particularly troublesome.
Still, if you really need some speed, it’s now a little cheaper.
PlayStation’s 12 Deals of Christmas sees a new title discounted every two days until December 24, 2017. The first three games included in the campaign were Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, NBA2K17, and Rockstar’s obscure 2013 crime adventure, Grand theft Auto V.
Each discount is only available for 48 hours, so you have to be quick. We’ll have the next sale update on Friday.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
