Currently $19.99 on PSN.
And it's gone... Yesterday, we ran a story about 'South Park: The Stick of Truth' being on sale for only $4.99 on PSN, which it was. The price had all the makings of being legitimate, as evidenced by a Tweet from the developer, which is just one many indications that the $5 price was known.
This author purchased the game at that price, and even downloaded it. Unfortunately, the price is now at $19.99, and Sony has stated that an "error" was the root cause of the temporary low price.
Update: Due to an error, South Park: The Stick of Truth was listed on the US PS Store at an incorrect price. We apologize for the error.— PlayStation (@PlayStation) March 19, 2015
The same message was posted on the PlayStation Blog, where the $4.99 had been a day earlier.
It's unclear what effect this pricing error will have going forward. The game was available at the low price for well over a day.
