PSN, XBLA get Thanksgiving discounts

Americans get lucky, we don't.

Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Store are offering discounted goodies in celebration of Thanksgiving.

But, as only the US celebrate Thanksgiving, only the US get the treats.

From tomorrow, Xbox Live will see Rez HD drop from 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) down to 500 MSP (GBP 4.25 / EUR 6.00) - a steal, considering the critical acclaim.

The full Death Magnetic album by Metallica for Guitar Hero III also sheds a load, dropping to 1000 MSP (GBP 8.50 / EUR 12.00). And there's plenty more on Major Nelson's blog.

Meanwhile, over on the PlayStation Store (which we can at least access), The Last Guy, PixelJunk Eden, echochrome, Novastrike and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 are all temporarily USD 4.99 (just over GBP 3). Offer ends on 4th December.
