The weekend is upon us and, as is becoming commonplace around the PlayStation Network, that means it’s time for yet another flash sale on games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. What sets this sale apart from the pack is that loads of games are on offer for up to 80 percent off, meaning you can grab a bunch titles for as low as $5 a pop.
This weekend’s flash sale details have gone live via the PlayStation Store, boasting dozens of games for super low prices. You’ll want to act fast, though, because these deals are only good through next Monday, May 18. So if you’re not going to be too busy playing the House of Wolves expansion for Destiny or gearing up to slaughter beasts in Withcher 3, we’ve got a few suggestions to help fill up your free time.
You’ll want to follow the link to the flash sale posting for a full list of this week’s discounts but, as always, we’ll cherry pick a few highlights from the three-plus pages of sales.
Kicking things off with a bang, Borderlands 2 for PS3 can be yours for just $4.80, while the entire first season of The Walking Dead can be scooped up for about the same price on all three PlayStation consoles.
We know that Mortal Kombat X just launched but, for those of you who missed the most recent entry in the series, the Vita version of Mortal Kombat can be snagged for, again, $4.80.
Okami HD for the PS3 is just 4.90 in this week’s sale, meaning you officially have zero excuses left not to play this amazing take on the Zelda adventuring formula. Don’t Starve can also be found on the PS3 and Vita for $4.95, or you can get the PS4 version, complete with the Reign of Giants expansion, for a penny cheaper. Go figure.
Outlast on the PS4 for $4.80 is a cheap way to get some quality scares, with Vita “hunter” fans having a lot to look forward to in the super cheap Freedom Wars and Soul Sacrifice Delta, both marked down t $4.80 and $4.86 respectively.
Is your collection missing any Prince of Persia or Splinter Cell games? Chances are you can fill in the gaps for about $5 apiece. That same price will net you Injustice: Gods Among Us for the PS3 and the lovely JRPG, Ni no Kuni.
Burnout Paradise is one of my favorite racing games of all time, so I’d encourage pretty much anyone to pick that up for $4.95 on the PS3 this weekend. Other racers on offer for about the same price include Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed: The Run, Moto GP 14 and Zombie Driver HD.
Finally, there’s the Mass Effect Trilogy for PS3. All three games, one package, just $4.80…Boom.
