Good price, I think this is the lowest its been since launch. I've heard a lot of good things about it and it's been on my wishlist for a while. Finally going to pick it up. Thanks!

Just a heads up, the game is only 4-5 hrs long.

That said I bought it on launch day and absolutely loved it. It's a really beautiful game with a style I've never played before. It's more of a beautiful movie that you control than a game imo. I recommend it!

Did you miss the portion where it specifies XBOX only? Probably won't be discounted for PSN Smilie Same reason why it isn't for Steam on PC.

I know it's XBox only - just lamenting no similar sale on PSN

To counter this, I didn't care for it much. I actually like walking simulators (Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is a far better "game", and so is Ethan Carter), but this one really rubbed me the wrong way. From the annoying pace (glacially slow), the annoying run from A to B and then back to A again with a map that is really, really annoying - just NOPE.

I did finish it, but honestly wish I'd spent my time playing about anything else.

Firewatch suckssssssss. I've never been so disappointed in a game before. I love heavy story based games but not this one.
Yep. I seriously don't get the love for this one. It's mediocre at best, and that's being generous.

Keep in mind when you buy this game, it is on rails in the same way that Rage HD/Horn was on rails on iOS. It is interesting and artistic. I enjoyed playing it, but keep in mind it kind of plays itself. Its more like an interactive movie.
