Why have sorta long Tuesday to Tuesday with the same stuff usually? Why can’t Sony have a system that splits up the week with part sales. Why not have a batch of games that go on sale for 3 days only and then the next batch of games go on sale for 4 days only. Which totals it for a full week of sales with more selection of overall games to choose. I’m sure that’s enough time between to know when to grab a sale. You snooze you lose in a sort of way.

The way it is now you gotta usually wait a full week which can wear on some peoples patiences. I have patience but it would be nice not too wait as long sometimes. I know we have flash sales but they don’t come enough I find. Better then nothing I suppose.

They can't seem to get their storefront working properly with weekly sales. If they tried to make the sales more frequent I imagine the whole thing would meltdown.
Really enjoying the ps4 library.

A week isn't long at all, but that besides the point.

The days people get paid and/or have off from work differ from job to job. I imagine they are able to reach majority of the population by leaving the sale up for an entire week. A "snooze you lose" scenario works if the item is in limited supply, but nobody is running out of digital copies to sell.
Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don't give a **** how crazy they are!

Yeah people’s work schedule gets involved. But people can still can make time in the day to check for sales if it was my way of sorting them out.
