Sony Entertainment Network: Holiday Games Sale up to 60% Off

The Sony Entertainment Network is throwing a Holiday Games sale right now. We are in to the second week of the sale, with the deals changing each week. This week, save up to 60% on fun and fabulous games from the Sony PlayStation Store.

In the sale, you will find games for all sorts of devices. This week you can find games for the:

  • PS4
  • PS3
  • PS Vita

Some say ‘full game’ and some say ‘PSN game’, which means it is in the Playstation Network. I figured with how popular the new PS4 is this year; everyone will want to purchase games for it. Here are a few games on sale for the PS4.

Games on the PSN tend to be cheaper overall, and I think they provide excellent value for their purchase price. Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry has a 4/5 star ranking on the Sony Playstation store right now with over 3000 votes. That is pretty awesome and makes this game a solid choice for your library.

If you have not upgraded to the PS4 yet, there are still plenty of choices for the PS3. Many of the same titles are available across the platforms. However, games like Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition are only on sale for the PS3. Originally $19.99, this game is discounted to $11.99.

My favourite game of the same is for a device I have never even laid hands on: the PS Vita. I just adore the art of Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars. I can tell by the solid 5/5 star rating that I must not be alone. I think 387 other people agree with me. Originally $39.99, the game is on sale for $23.99. This game makes me seriously want to buy a PS Vita – I wonder if I can get a good deal on one this Boxing Day.

Next week there will be a completely new set of games on sale to drool over. This is a great way to build up your new PS4 library or increase the libraries you already have for the PS3 or PS Vita.

I assume all prices are in USD.

Free PS4 Game + Other Freebies & Discounts @ PlayStation Store Right Now!

Sony’s PlayStation Experience has been ongoing all day today in Las Vegas after announcing that a couple of games and special discounts would be going live this afternoon, it looks like they have made good on their promise! This week-end only, you can get 3 free games (one for each PlayStation platform), along with a couple of select discounts. Keep reading to find out more.

Although only available on select PlayStation platforms, here’s a list of the freebies that you can score as of right now:

  • PS4: Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare
  • PS3: Mirror’s Edge
  • PS Vita: Need for Speed Most Wanted

Only available for the PlayStation 4, you can also score the following game rebates:

  • Grand Theft Auto V & free Bull shark cash card for just $69.99
  • The Last of Us Remastered just $38.49
  • Dying Light Ultimate Edition: was $79.99/ now $71.99

Keep in mind that you might need to sign into your PlayStation account in order to view these freebies and deals.

I have to admit that Plants vs Zombies isn’t a game that I would normally ever even consider buying but since it’s free, I’ll definitely be giving it a whirl. This game is usually priced at $39.99. It looks like the perfect lazy week-end game to play, especially since GameSpot has given it a good rating of 7/10.

However, if you’re looking for something with more of a story, then The Last of Us Remastered is definitely worth its current discounted price tag. At Best Buy, The Last of Us Remastered is currently 54.99. I haven’t played it myself as I’m not the biggest zombie fan, but I have had to endure my hubby playing it and on top of stunning graphics, the story is well worth exploring as well.

Hurry to download these because although they are supposed to be available during this week-end only, you simply never know when they might expire. Even if you don’t plan on playing any of these game this week-end, just download them real quick to have them when you do have time to play.

Sony Entertainment Network: Up To 50% Off Select Grand Theft Auto Titles

Sony Entertainment Network: Up To 50% Off Select Grand Theft Auto Titles

Love Grand Theft Auto (GTA)? The Sony Entertainment Network is currently offering selection of 11 GTA titles for up to 50% off but hurry as there is no knowing when prices may be increased.

Here are all of the 11 titles that you can chose from and their prices:

  • Grand Theft Auto V: $29.99
  • Grand Theft Auto IV: $4.99
  • Grand Theft Auto Episodes from Liberty City: $5.99
  • Grand Theft Auto San Andreas: $3.99
  • Grand Theft Auto Vice City: $2.49
  • Grand Theft Auto 3: $2.49
  • Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories: $4.99
  • Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories: $2.49
  • Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars: $4.99
  • Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories: $4.99
  • Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories: $2.49

Just to give you an idea, I had a look around for Grand Theft Auto V and found a physical copy for $59.99 at Best Buy. Digital versions are almost always cheaper but in this case, it’s actually a $30 price difference, which amounts to 50% off! Given that we are quickly transitioning to cloud storage in our quest to eradicate discs, it’s definitely much more worth it to invest in digital copies of games. For the longest time, I enjoyed collecting games in physical copies but given that games from previous consoles are currently just sitting on my TV stand for show with no better purpose than to occasionally be used as a coaster, I definitely would much rather prefer save a couple of bucks on the digital version, especially since there is not potential for losing it!

Although I haven’t gotten around to finishing it, I do recommend GTA 5 if you haven’t played it yet. Although you’re going to need a PlayStation 3 to play it, it’s well worth the time. Unlike the previous titles, this latest title also allowed you to play 3 different characters. You quickly unlock all of the characters as you progress through the story and eventually are awarded the liberty of transitioning between the three of them whenever you want. Each character also has a slew of his own individual missions, making this game even more time-consuming to beat completely and by that I mean, by completely every single mission. My favourite character was definitely Michael as his missions often involved the best cars in the GTA universe, but Trevor was also a riot to play.

Other games are also playable on the PS2 Classic, PSP or PS Vita.

Sony Entertainment Network: 99 Cent Game Flash Sale

Sony Entertainment Network: 99 Cent Game Flash Sale

The Sony Entertainment Network has a sweet flash sale with games for the PS2 Classic, PS3, PSP, and PS Vita for only 99 cents!

There are 34 games currently to choose from. I’m not going to give you an exhaustive list of the games as you can just click through that yummy link above and check them out yourself. Here are my picks of the sale:

Back to the Future: The Game – Full Series: with the sheer number of Back to the Future fans there are out there, this pick was a no brainer. Besides, you get the full series for only $0.99 for the Ps3. In fact, my husband is one of said fans and I think he could be convinced to risk a loonie on possible hours of fun.

For me, I would totally be picking up Jurassic Park: The Game – Full Season. If you ever wanted to be in Jurassic Park, this game looks pretty awesome – be sure to watch the video. Run from dinosaurs, fight with dinosaurs, drive away at high speed from dinosaurs, just don’t make a pit stop to use the toilet. Only $0.99.

Another fantastic looking game is Gotham City Impostors which looks just hilarious. It also have over 6500 reviews for a 5/5 rating. For $0.99, I would say it is a must buy.

Check out these and other games at the Sony Entertainment Network. All prices most likely in USD.
