Google Play’s birthday sales are now live (full list inside)

google play 2nd birthday

A couple of days ago, it was revealed that Google would plan to shower Google Play visitors with gifts in the form of sales to celebrate the digital storefront’s second birthday, though none of the deals were live at them time.

    I feel like their sales just get a little lamer each time.

    • Nick Mantzoros

      well as you get older, birthday gifts get lamer. This is like getting a new pair of socks. Childhood you would have thought it was lame, but adult you finds the gift practical and thoughtful.

      • Thomas Jefferson II

        Google’s giving away free socks?
        Oh, you got my hopes up…

      • No_Nickname90

        Dude!! This past X-mas, I was opening my gifts expecting socks because I really needed some and I didn’t find any. =.[

        I actually complained (sarcastically) and found one last gift. They were socks. =.P

          Don’t shoot your eye out kid! Err…

  • Thomas

    Let’s Go Crazy by Prince is FREE !!! Wow Google you know how to spoil us don’t you ;)

  • Double_a2013

    I just checked and Gatsby is listed at $6.99

    • Chimphappyhour

      The 3.99 is most likely the rental price. Saw the same with World War Z. Meh. I’ll wait for Redbox.

      • No_Nickname90

        Google needs some type of streaming service for their movies; something to compete against the likes of Netflix and others.

    “The Sims FreePlay: 50% off Adopt a Toddler”

    This made me lol

  • JRomeo

    I’ve never seen star trek into darkness, and never seen great gatsby, so I purchased both of those today with the promotion.

    • Dan

      I’ve purchased them too

  • steveb944

    Icona Pop and 50 Cent songs were already free at the very least in the beginning of the week. I was hoping the previously rumored items were going to be offered.

  • Hohlraum

    I just yawned so hard my jaw dislocated and fell on the ground.

  • TONY ALDO

    It was all a dream, I used to run ice cream on my LG. Sergey and Jobs beefin up in the limousine. Every Saturday Id play Flappy Bird on my Nexus testing my reflexes.

    Okay I’m buying that Biggie album.

  • Chippah

    Big with TOM hanks in HD is FREE today!

    Dat reminds me,

    If you cut off TOM hanks on the highway he’d be TOM HONKS
    If Tom Hanks gave you $1400 you’d say “TOM, Thanks!”
    IF Tom hanks gave out Hot dogs at a baseball game, He’d be Tom Franks.

  • Sora

    Final Fantasy V is $7.99 (%50 off) , the amazing spiderman (the game not movie) is only $0.10, and radiohammer is $.99 (%67 off) these are showing up on the japanese play store 2 year sale but I am seeing the same price in the US store if I search for those apps.
