PlayStation Flash Sale Scores A Critical Hit On RPGs
Donít blink or youíll miss it. PlayStation is hosting yet another Flash Sale this week, this time focusing on 15 roleplaying games and their DLC. Look for offers of up to 75 percent off select titles through June 6.
Yes, you read that right, all of your questing, looting and side-questing dreams are about to come true as another PlayStation Flash sale discounts a whole bunch of popular RPGs. And, if my video gaming math is correct, that means that there are discounts on titles featuring approximately 47 characters with varying degrees of amnesia.
Beginning as of right this very minute and running through 12 p.m. Pacific on this Friday, June 6, this weekís flash sale offers deep discounts on RPGs that run the spectrum, from high fantasy to space-age zaniness, Japanese to Western, and everything in between.
You can take a gander at the full rundown on the PlayStation Blog, including games like Tales of Grace f and Tales of Xillia for $17.49 and $19.99 respectively, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for either the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita for $29.99, and Dragon Age: Origins for a super-low $4.99. Otherwise, here are some of the juiciest morsels hanging on the vine.
For instance, you can get Demonís Souls for $9.99 during the Flash Sale or Dark Souls II for just $38.99. Again, checking my gaming math, that means you can die (virtually) 1,362 times per dollar spent between those two games. If you're not sold on Dark Souls II, maybe this video will help change your mind.
A couple of the more successful (and notorious) new RPGs of the past couple of years are also included in this sale, such as Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen, and 38 Studiosí sole hit, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Rumors are buzzing that the former might actually have a sequel in the works while the latter more than likely has quite a few gamers lamenting that a follow-up will likely never see the light of day.
All of the Mass Effect 3 DLC is also discounted during this weekís sale, alongside the Mass Effect Trilogy for just $14.99. Save, or doom, the universe for the price of a movie ticket and a small soda? Yes, please.
South Park: The Stick of Truth is also marked down to $41.99 this week, alongside a couple of action-heavy RPGs for the PlayStation Vita, Soul Sacrifice and Toukiden: The Age of Demons. Those will set you back $6.49 and $19.99, respectively.
Finally, what many will consider the standout from even the standouts, is the Level 5 and Studio Ghibli collaboration, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. In short, youíre being offered a trip to a beautiful, heartwarming land of magic for just $4.99. Thatís a price you canít really argue with, amiright?
