Along with the updates in my previous post, there is news from Playfish that a number of items are scheduled to be discontinued in a sale in the luxury shop starting tomorrow. These items will continue to be on sale until midnight August 24th, when they will be removed from the store.
The items already have their 50% off sale prices in place, although the official sale banners are not up yet.
The luxury shop items to be discontinued, which are all currently 50% there original prices, include:
1) Playful Fish Hat
2) Floral Hat
3) Colourful Clock
4) Cutoff Shorts
5) Royal Bed
6) Metal Bed
7) Robot Pants
The good news is that since these sale prices are already in effect, it’s a good time to purchase any of these items, particularly if you’ve been waiting and saving to buy one of them.
There are a number of downsides to this news too. Firstly, these items will soon be out of the stores, and since there is only one week to buy them, this will be an expensive week if you want one of them and haven’t purchased it yet. Secondly, four of these items (the playful fish hat, the floral hat, the colourful clock and cutoff shorts) are in the gold mystery boxes. The decreased price of these items is reflected in their resale values, so finding any of these items in a mystery box won’t be very exciting anymore. Currently, the resale prices of each of these four items is worth less than the price of the gold mystery box itself. Thirdly, this news will be sad for anyone who has saved up any of the items above to sell later or to use for trading because they now worth far less than they used to.
