PlayStation Store: Six Free Games for the PS4, PS3, & PS Vita with PS Plus

PlayStation Store: Six Free Games for the PS4, PS3, & PS Vita with PS Plus

Do you like free? I like free! This month, PlayStation store is offering free games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PS Vita! We are not talking one lone game here… there are six free games to choose from in the PlayStation store when you have a PS Plus membership. Why choose at all, you might as well get all of them when they are free!

Let us lay the games out per console. This deal gives you three free games for the PS4; this is a great deal as the PS4 console is still fairly new. Tower of Guns, Never Alone, and Aaru’s Awakening are all free for the PS4 this month. These games are worth $14.99 each, so pick up all four and save $44.97.

Like the PS4, owners of a PS3 qualify for three free games. Pick up Dishonored, Aaru’s Awakening, and Tower of Guns for free. Dishonoured is worth $19.99, Aaru’s Awakening is worth $14.99, and Tower of Guns is worth $14.99. Together, you receive $49.97 worth in free games.

The PS Vita offers a different set of games – but this time there are only two freebies. Killzone Mercenary retails for $35.99 and MonsterBag retails for $9.99. Together, you save $45.98.

These free games are all available for individuals who have a PS Plus membership. Three months of a PS Plus membership costs $17.99 US and a full 12 months costs $49.99 US. This may seem like a fair bit of change to throw at the Sony; however, the free game benefits far outweigh the money you pay. Just this month alone you would receive between $45 – $50 CDN worth of games. If you consider that value of freebies each month for the length of your membership – the value really adds up.

Of course, it is best if they are games you want to play. Dishonoured and Killzone Mercenary are probably the favourites of this month’s freebie list. They also tend to be the more expensive games. One happy PS Plus member commented on the Sony website:

Never Alone, nice. Never heard of Aaru’s Awakening. Seems interesting. Might give it a shot. Glad to see Dishonored being offered. It’s a great game.

Another member said:

Will absolutely be getting killzone mercenary for my vita. Now just need to find time to play it. Lol

I think that is why I have never bought a PS Plus membership – when would I find the time to play all these fantastic games?

PlayStation Store Coupon: 10% Off Games & More

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 9:00 AM

PlayStation Store Coupon: 10% Off Games & More

Receive 10% off PS3, PS4, and more games at the Sony PlayStation Store this weekend. PlayStation has only had one of these coupons before, in recent memory, so they are fairly rare!

Click here to shop the PlayStation Store online now

  • Coupon Code: LQ8ERDQH3A
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 30th March 2015 @ noon PST

This coupon can be used on all games including sale titles but excluding pre-orders. We are in Week 4 of the Spring Fever event at PSN. Pick up deals on the God of War franchise, Wrestlemania and more.

I mentioned the free DLC for God of War: Ascension just a few days ago. In that post, I suggested buying the entire God of War: Ascension Ultimate Edition that was $39.99 and is now on sale for $12. After this coupon code, you can actually get this mega pack with the game and the full DLC bundle for just $10.80. All other titles are 40% off their original price.

There are other good deals on as well. I invaded the 50% off games section on the PlayStation Network. While there are a lot of DLCs and game content in the sale, you can find some stand-alone titles. Zen Pinball 2: South Park Pinball (PS4) is on sale for from $4.99 down to $2.49. After coupon code, pay just $2.24 for the title. I could literally waste hours playing pinball. I started playing pinball on an old computer I had that had the game built in (as well as the usual Solitaire, Hearts, and more). I really enjoyed playing the game and have since tried my hands at a real pinball machine.

WWE 2K15 is also on sale for 50% off. Originally $59.99, the game has been discounted to $29.99. After coupon code, pay only $26.99 for this title. I could hardly believe that at this price the game was 50% off. However, I checked out the game on Xbox (same game, different platform) where it retails for $69.99. Much of the Wrestlemania franchise is on sale so check out all the games you can score here.

I am not familiar with many of these titles and I rarely buy games on the Sony PlayStation Network. That is where you come in dear Moosers! Drop us a line with your game suggestions. With an extra 10% off everything, including sale titles, now is a good time to expand your game collection.

I believe all prices are in USD. What titles are you going to buy?

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

Posted by on December 11, 2014 at 12:00 PM

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!

Posted by on December 6, 2014 at 4:07 PM

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

Posted by on September 9, 2014 at 11:30 PM

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

Posted by on April 19, 2014 at 4:00 PM

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.
