The PlayStation Network is hosting another sale, this time in honor of PAX Prime 2014. You can save up to 60 percent as an average Joe on 18 games, or up to 80 percent if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber. And there was much rejoicing.
You’ll have to forgive me if that intro lacked any real spark or sizzle but, at this point, I’m having some real difficulty coming up with something new and catchy every time there’s a sale on the PlayStation Network. The simple fact of the matter is that I can’t really remember the last week there wasn’t a bunch of discounts being offered on a weekly basis for PlayStation platforms, which means that 2014 has been an utterly fantastic year for those of you trying to enjoy the hobby on the cheap.
This week’s discounts are in honor of the upcoming PAX Prime, showcasing top PAX games from years past. These sales are starting to remind me of cake at the office. We’ll utilize literally any reason remotely warranting celebration in order to have an afternoon snack. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if next week’s sales are titled “Because it’s Tuesday.”
Don’t think I’m complaining, though, because like cake at the office, I’m happy with pretty much any reason folks can cling onto as a reason for offering up sales. That goes double when we’re talking about a list as rad as this one. You can read all about the discounts on the PlayStation Blog, or just keep on trucking here for the highlights. Again, we’re looking at up to 60 percent off of nearly 20 games for everyone with a PS console, and up to 80 percent off for those of you who have dipped into the PlayStation Plus pool.
Alien Spidey will be discounted for the PS3, alongside action/adventure game Beyond: Two Souls. If you enjoyed Heavy Rain, then you’ll likely want to check that second one out, as it’s from the same developers and will set you back just $27.99 regular or $19.59 with Plus.
BIT.TRIP Presents…Runner 2 is also on sale for the PS3 and Vita, with gritty RPG Bound By Flame being discounted for both the PS3 and PS4. Closure can also be yours at a reduced rate on the PS3.
A more recent gem, Child of Light is being discounted on the PS3 and Quatro for $11.49 regular or $10.34 with Plus. If you’ve missed out on Don’t Starve up until this point, that’s also going for just $10.49 on the PS4 or $8.39 with Plus.
The Guacamelee! Bundle Fantastico is available for cheap on both the PS3 and Vita, joined by other PS3 titles Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus ($14.99, $7.50), Tiny Brains and the season pass to The Wolf Among Us for just $13.99 regular or $9.79 with Plus.
Finally, on the PS4, you can enjoy discounts on Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut, Tiny Brains, Transistor and Trials Fusion.
