yeah still quite expensive and above the RRP for the physical version but its something, and Im now considering buying it :)

I'd like to think that my noise contributed in some way to the price drop

As Miles mentioned the initial pricing was an input mistake and once it was discovered it was rectified as soon as was practical to do so.

Will people who paid 35.99 be refunded?

From Miles's post earlier:


then they should get in touch with SEGA customer support. I have no idea what SEGA will do, but I did make it clear today that we would send people to them if they had this issue - we (SI) cannot refund anyone, as we don't publish the games, but develop them

two input mistakes, both at same price, two years in a row??? Sounds dodgy to me, Sega need to sort themselves out imho

I'm not involved in the actual process of putting the game in the store - but having done a lot of computer work in the past I'd expect that its either simply that happens to be the 'default' value for an application in the store or that the value is input in a different currency and exchange rates changed or similar (you'd be surprised at how complex apparently simple things can be when you're doing them on a worldwide scale).

(on the other hand it could be the illumanti .... they're everywhere, listening ;) )

I was just emailing sony asking for my 8 refund into my playstation account and I thought why should it be to my playstation account. I paid 36 on my card so I want the refund back on my card why should I have to give them the 8 via the playstation store when it was their mistake in the 1st place!!! Mayby thats a reason they charge extra so they know you HAVE to spend the refund they give you in the store. Its not about the 8 its the priciple.

It was SEGA's fault, not sony's?

I think we won't know for sure until Wikileaks get hold of the internal correspondence of SI/SEGA/SONY and publish it kindly on their websites for all to read. Please Wikileaks, make this corporate complot transparent.

It was a mistake on the part of whomever clicked the wrong button or whatever .... I apologise for the problem having happened but it wasn't something I was personally involved with and I'm just happy its now been corrected.

Wasn't me - but from what I understand it was an innocent enough mistake and tbh if I'd been involved in the process it could well have been me that made it (as you probably guessed neither me nor Miles was particularly happy about this, BUT the important thing is that its sorted now imho ...).

I dropped an e-mail to Sega support. I got a reply telling me that they will reply in a day or so because they're busy. I didn't get why they messaged me to tell me they will message me either.

It was an automatic message, a BOT!

The way it works there (I believe) is that it automatically enrolls you into a queue with a human dealing with the issues; however so you know you've been placed in that queue you're automatically sent an email to acknowledge your query (no human involved in the acknowledgement email).

There is no risk to buying a game only a risk to buying a freaking PSPGo, seriously they are the biggest waste of money you could ever fork out any cash for... get a psp slim or w/e not the pile of crap sony call PSPGo. If you really want FMH2011 then go ahead.

Just to let people know, I've asked the relevant people to investigate this - unfortunately I have NO visibility of the UK PSN store from Florida (so can't even confirm the price has changed tbh).
