Thank goodness it's Friday. It's the weekend and Sony wants to celebrate with a flash sale on the PlayStation Network. This means great games, new and old alike, ripe and ready for the picking on the PS3, PS Vita and the PS4.
Over on the PlayStation Store, games like Grim Fandango and South Park: The Stick of Truth are available right now for $2.99 and $7.99 respectively. In fact, Grim Fandango's discount is the sort of discount you would expect from Valve during a Steam sale. The sale removes all reasons not to buy the game.
Added to this there are a number of other titles available as well, including the remastered edition of Day of the Tentacle, which you can pick up for $5.99, down from the $14.99 price point. You can also grab hidden gems like Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch from Studio Ghibli and Bandai Namco, combining classic JRPG gameplay and grinding with the storytelling and art-style that made Studio Ghibli famous.
And speaking of anime-inspired games... there's also Platinum Games' take on The Legend of Korra, which you can grab for only $4.94. The game was deemed to be serviceable for the purpose of being entertaining and fun for a few hours. If you want something with a bit more legs on the replayability end, though, there are games like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and Dragon Ball Xenoverse, with the PS4 version of the latter being available for $15.99 while the former is available on the PS4 for $23.99, down from the $59.99 price point.
One of my favorites from this gen as far as art-style and visual accomplishments are concerned is also discounted... I'm talking about Arc System Works' Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-. The game is marked down to $23.99.
Other games like Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth are also available at discounted prices, being slashed in its price from $59.99 down to $23.99.
Other games like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gold Edition have been slashed even deeper than some of the other titles, going from $59.99 all the way down to $19.79, which is a pretty steep 67% discount.
And speaking of deep discounts, Skullgirls Encore is 80% off the normal price, enabling you to get a hold of the game for only $1.99.
If the recent Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse got you in the more for more SMT titles, you can grab the PS2 classic remastered for the PS3 Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga for only $3.99.
A number of Disney games are also discounted, cut down by 75% for only $1.49 each for the PS3, PSP or the PlayStation Vita.
Niche games like Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed are available for only $7.99, along with the Shantae games, which are available for $7.99 as well. One of the more under-appreciated games from seventh gen is also discounted... Ubisoft's Child of Light: Ultimate Edition bundle for the PS3 is marked down from $22 to only $5.62.
There are more than 100 games discounted for various PlayStation platforms right now through the weekend, so be sure to check out the flash sale while it's live.
