Sony is having another slew of surprise discounts, this time slashing the prices of 19 games to just $9.99, but only this coming weekend! The latest PlayStation Flash Sale will end this coming Monday.
As with the past couple of Flash Sales from earlier in the year, the savings only apply to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita games, once again leaving the PlayStation 4 out in the cold for now. Even so, many of the games are pretty recent, and a hefty chunk of them are well worth your attention if you haven’t previously invested in them!
As usual, we’ll list each game on sale, its aggregrate review score according to gamerankings.com (for its respective PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita edition, naturally), and our personal recommendations. Both regular PlayStation Network members and PlayStation Plus members will see the same prices, and can both participate in the sale.
First, the PlayStation 3 games on sale for $9.99 are:
And, the following PlayStation Vita games on sale for $9.99 are:
– Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (51.50%)
– God of War Collection (75.00%)
– The Sly Collection (80.69%) *EGGPLANTE RECOMMENDS*
– Street Fighter x Tekken (79,87%)
Many of the discounted games are former PlayStation Plus freebies, with the rest seemingly chosen at random. Nonetheless, if you’re looking to fill out your backlog on the PlayStation 3 especially, you have plenty of good choices here.
For just $9.99, games like XCOM: Enemy Unknown, BioShock Infinite, DMC: Devil May Cry, God of War Collection, The Sly Collection, and Metro: Last Light are a real steal if you didn’t already get ahold of them! The highlight here however is Tales of Graces f, which RPG fans should absolutely grab, as it’s a massive and enjoyable Japanese RPG that will last them many hours for the miniscule asking price.
PlayStation Vita owners, once again, have a smaller selection. Of these four games, The Sly Collection is the only one that holds up all that well in its Vita incarnation, though Street Fighter x Tekken is a worthy pick for fighting gamers that want to take their fix on the go too, even if its PlayStation 3 version is far superior. God of War fans may be drawn to the God of War Collection, which, like The Sly Collection, only came to PlayStation Vita this past May, but bear in mind that technical and performance issues keep the Vita version from the superior quality of the PlayStation 3 version.
