If you missed out on all the Black Friday deals, not to worry. The PlayStation store just kicked off a series of flash sales, and there's some decent offerings.
You can browse through to the discounts directly on your PS4, or you can view them through your browser. Some games are discounted up to 80%, with 115 games supposedly getting a cut in total.
If you're after something really cheap, give these a go:
- Jetpack Joyride: $2.25
- fl0w: $2.95
- Flower: $4.55
- Grow Home: $5.95
- Lichtspeer: $5.95
- Risk of Rain: $6.75
- Grow Up: $7.55
- RESOGUN: $7.55
- The Unfinished Swan: $7.55
- Nidhogg: $7.55
- Tharsis: $7.55
- Push Me Pull You: $7.55
- Grim Fandango Remastered: $8.95
- Valiant Hearts: $8.95
- Crypt of the Necrodancer: $8.95
Pretty good selection. The Grow Home/Grow Up pair for just over $15 is a pretty good offering. Grabbing Flower for a few dollars shouldn't be overlooked either if you want a super relaxing experience (it's not much of a game mechanically, but it's soothing all the same).
Crypt of the Necrodancer, Valiant Hearts and Grim Fandango Remastered under $10 is hard to pass up, and anyone who has ever enjoyed a couch co-op fighter should grab Nidhogg at that price.
Some surprising value, at least from PSN, here.
- Assault Android Cactus: $10.45
- The Vanishing of Ethan Carter: $11.95
- ABZU: $14.95
- Battle Worlds Kronos: $11.95
- Bound: $11.95
- Headlander: $11.95
- ADR1FT: $11.95
- Unravel: $11.95
- INSIDE: $13.45
- SOMA: $14.95
- HELLDIVERS Super-Earth Ultimate Edition: $14.95
- Wander: $14.95
- Hard Reset Redux: $14.95
I'm being a little cheeky throwing Wander in there, but hey, if you're going to check out the worst game on the PS4 $14.95 isn't a bad price to do it.
If you'd like something a bit better, SOMA is at a real nice price. HELLDIVERS with friends is pretty good too, if you didn't grab it while it was a PS+ freebie.
$20 Or More
If you don't mind spending over $20, there are a couple of good titles getting a discount too. Just note that anything you break in anger as a result of The Witness will probably cost you a lot more than a pub schnitty.
- The Witness: $26.95
- I am Setsuna: $40.95
I am Setsuna should be an automatic play at some point for any Chrono Trigger fans, although most are probably a little preoccupied with Final Fantasy 15 right now. And The Witness ... well, if you like puzzles or Braid, you should have bought this already. Now's a good time to do so otherwise. Just don't blame me if you start drawing on your TV like Mark did.
So those are the PSN flash sales. They'll hang around for four days, which should be enough time to pick one or two freebies. I quite like Tharsis at that price, even though I'll undoubtedly end up screaming as one of my astronauts loses a limb through a series of shitty dice rolls.
But what about you? Spy anything decent going for a song?
