We all know that the summer gaming season can lead to a slump for a lot of us. Not a lot of new stuff is released during these months, so many gamers are left having to replay old games in their respective libraries. While nostalgic, it can definitely get repetitive.
Well, thanks to a bunch of sales going on right now (i.e. this week), PlayStation gamers in the United States only can get some stuff they may have missed, AND save some money in the process! Let’s run down the list, shall we? There’s of course the weekly Sony sale. Then, there’s a publisher sale that Ubisoft is running. Finally, there’s a sale on download-only releases called Totally Digital. To top things off, PlayStation Plus members get an additional discount on certain titles.
That’s three sales coming together to offer PS4 gamers a ton of stuff to choose from this week! So come with me, dear readers, as we jump in and take a look at what’s available that’ll keep us going until the wee hours.
Starting with the Ubisoft sale: It’s nothing short of awesome. The publisher has discounts available on just about every recent title they’ve released. If you’re a fan of the Tom Clancy games, you can get Rainbow Six Siege for $25.00 ($20.00 for those who subscribe to PS Plus), Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available for $26.00 (or $20.00 with PS Plus), and The Division is only $20.00 (just $15.00 with PS Plus)! Gamers can also take down a zealous cult in a discounted Far Cry 5 at $42.00 (or $35.00 for PS Plus members), or pick up The Crew 2 for $48.00 ($42.00 for Plus subscribers) if racing games are more your speed.
There are also some cool deals on bundles and special editions for these games as well, which is great for those of us who love getting into all of the DLC forever. Playstation has published a full list of those titles here in their blog.
Oh, but it’s not just big names, either. There are also some cool indie games included in the sale(s) this week. If you want to get something creepy and fun, you can buy Limbo for a mere $4.00 (just $3.00 for PS Plus), and/or its successor, Inside (both by Playdead) for $8.00 (or $6.00 with a PS Plus account). If platforming is more your style, there’s also Rogue Legacy for $7.00 (or just $5.00 if you’re a Plus member). Want something with some serious challenge? Get a copy of Metanet Software’s super hard N++ for half price at $7.50! While there’s no additional discount for that one, it still makes a decent addition to the collection of any challenge-obsessed gamer.
