Following yet another year of people buying their games, Sega has decided to say “thanks” with something of a “Thanksgiving sale” across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS and Android. If you missed out on any of Sega's games this past year, now might be the time to pick them up for really, really cheap.
Despite being called a “Thanksgiving sale,” this latest promotion actually extends far beyond the U.S. holiday of remembrance, turkey football. Console sale prices are good now through Dec. 4, while mobile sales will be good through Nov. 26.
A few additional, and rhyming, details can be found over on Sega's blog, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that what you really want to hear about are what games will be available on what platforms and at what price. So let's dig into this heaping helping of Sega-infused holiday goodness, shall we?
We'll kick things off on the PlayStation Network, where Plus subscribers get even deeper discounts than the rest of the crowd. Those prices will be the ones in parentheses. First up is the Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Complete Edition, including all of the game's DLC, for $19.99 ($14.99). The Hell Yeah bundle, featuring two DLC, will be marked down to $14.99 ($10.49). NiGHTS: Into Dreams, Jet Set Radio and Sonic Adventure 2 will all be marked down to $6.99 ($4.89). A bundle featuring the classic Sonic and Sonic 2 will be $4.99 or free with Plus. Sonic Adventure 1 and the DX Upgrade bundle will be $4.99 ($3.99). Finally, Sega Rally Arcade and Space Channel 5: Part 2 will be $4.99 ($2.99).
Over to the Xbox Live Arcade and things get a heck of a lot simpler. Sega Vintage Collection titles including Alex Kidd and Co., Golden Axe Collection, Monster World Collection, and Streets of Rage Collection will all be marked down to 400 MSP. Space Channel 5: Part 2 and Daytona USA will also be going for 400 MSP.
On Android, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Ep. 2 will be $2.99, Virtua Tennis Challenge will be $1.99 and Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition will be on sale for $0.99.
Finally, iOS games Crazy Taxi and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Ep. 2 will be marked down to $2.99 a pop. Virtua Tennis Challenge will be $1.99 while ChuChu Rocket!, ChuChu Rocket! HD, Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition will all be marked down to $0.99 apiece.
Gobble em up!
