It looks like even virtual markets aren’t safe from the ridiculous Black Friday deals, with the PlayStation Network playing host to one of its famous flash sales between now and Dec. 1. Look for discounts of up to 65 percent off on games for the PlayStation 3 and PS4, as well as a random assortment of movies and television shows.
All of the online deals are supposed to take place on Cyber Monday but, considering the fact that Sony’s latest flash sale will last until then, I suppose we’ll let it slide that they’re rolling out the red carpet on savings a bit early this year. I mean, Black Friday begins at noon on Thanksgiving Thursday these days, so I guess we can just throw out the calendar when it comes to ridiculous deals.
And that’s exactly what’s happening with this weekend’s sale on PSN, running until 3 p.m. PT on Dec. 1. That gives you a few days to get your finances in order and make a few digital purchase decisions, assuming you weren’t one of the hundreds of people who got mauled during the shopping sprees taking place in physical space.
You’ll be able to check out the full list of discounts on the official flash sale post, but we’ll certainly cherry pick a few of the more tasty morsels for you here.
For starters, you can grab Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for just $39.99 or Diablo III: Reaper of Souls—Ultimate Evil Edition for $19.99 on the PS3 and $34.99 on the PS4.
Sports fans can grab FIFA 15 and Madden 15 for $23.99 apiece on the PS3 and $34.99 or $35.99 on the PS4 respectively.
If you’ve missed out on inFamous Second Son up until this point, then you might find the new price point of $19.99 hard to turn down. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is also getting a deep cut, down to just $29.99 for the flash sale. That’s 50 percent off a game that’s barely a month old, folks. Same goes for The Evil Within, which can be had for the same price on both consoles.
Finally, one of this year’s indie darlings on the PS4, you can grab Transistor for a measly $7.99.
Over to the movies and there’s a little something for everyone. Prices vary depending on if you purchase the flick in HD or standard definition. You can grab the new 300 flick for about $7 or The Amazing Spiderman 2 for 10 bucks.
That Heavenly Sword movie can be yours for around six dollars, with the amazing character study, Her for around the same price.
There are a load of movies on sale, so you’ll definitely want to check out that full list if you’re looking to put down the games and just watch something for a couple hours. The same goes for seasons of random television shows, including 24, It’s Always Sunny in Philidelphia, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Once Upon a Time.
