The Easter Bunny might not be coming until tomorrow, but that doesn't mean you can't start enjoying some holiday treats this very minute. Sony has announced an unexpected, and rather ridiculous weekend Flash Sale, this time discounting games like Braid, Plants vs. Zombies and Super Stardust HD all the way down to just $0.99.

I would say “prepare your wallet for a beating,” but this sale has 30 games marked down so low that, if you were to buy every single one of them, you'd still only be paying half of what you'd fork over for a single boxed title these days.

There's no special tiers or percentages here, everything from the Crash and Spyro PSone series to games like Retro City Rampage and a trio of TellTale adventure games have been dropped down to just a buck a pop.

“That's right, you read that list right. They are all $0.99,” said Sony Network Entertainment Digital Distribution Manager Chieh Chen in the Flash Sale's official announcement. “The Flash Sale starts now and ends Monday, April 21, at 7 a.m. Pacific time, so start snapping up these games right now.”

First, we're going to give you a rundown of the games, divided by platform. Just remember that the pricing is easy: Everything listed here is just a buck. After that, maybe we'll take a gander at a few of the highlights and hidden gems.

Basically, if you're looking to catch up on some classic PlayStation goodness, anything with the word Crash Bandicoot in the title is a winner, and Crash Team Racing is a kart racer that still holds up to this day.

Gotham City Imposters is a surprisingly solid class-based shooter with all sorts of fun twists on a familiar genre, and I had hours of fun with Crash Commando several years back, flying through the air with my jetpack or cruising around in a jeep while shooting enemy soldiers on a 2D battlefield.

You also can't really go wrong with Braid or Tokyo Jungle and, for lovers of twin-stick shooters, both Super Stardust HD and Everyday Shooters are two of the genre's best offerings.
