PSN Flash Sale | oprainfall

Flash Sale! Flash Sale! Come get your savings here on PSN while they last!

What’s that in the air? Is that the sweet sound of… savings? Yes, indeed, another PlayStation Network flash sale is upon us, this one coming only a couple months after the last one. The last flash sale had loads of savings with over 70 games under $1, which was insane, especially with some of the titles retailing up to $19.99 normally. This time around, there aren’t any $1 deals, but the savings are still quite impressive, as most games are just under the $5 mark. The PS4 has received a little more of the savings love this time around, too, as most of the games last time were PS3 and PS Vita titles.

Of great note is the Mass Effect Trilogy bundle on PS3. Normally the game retails for $29.99, but, during the flash sale, you can snag the entire trilogy (yes, all three Mass Effect titles!) for $4.80, a massive 84% discount! Another game receiving the 84% markdown is Freedom Wars on the Vita, which is also normally $29.99 and, for a limited time, will go for $4.80. Some other tantalizing discounts are Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, going for $4.80, discounted well off the normal $19.99, and Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us on PS4, which is going for $4.75 off the normal $24.99.

The flash sale only lasts until May 18, so make sure to snag these savings before it is too late! Check out the full list of games below:

    I can’t begin to tell you how much I hate what sales like this have done to the industry. These sales, and app stores, and Humble Bundle, and… They’ve created consumers who expect the bare minimum of prices. They’ve created consumers who don’t buy new games because they know rock bottom prices are just a few months away. They don’t need to buy new games because they have huge backlogs that come from these sales, which they can begin to clear out while they wait for the next one. No good comes from them, but it would be almost impossible to get rid of them anymore.

    • ZootPlaysTwitter

      Oh, I see how it is. Because Sony puts out this sale, you go on the offensive. If this was a Xbox/Steam store sale, you would be singing a different tune. Go to hell, fgt.

    • PanurgeJr

      No, you don’t see anything. Nothing of what I said applies merely to Sony. At no point did I limit what I was saying to Sony. I would be singing the same tune were it XBox or Steam. I do sing the same tune when it is XBox or Steam. That you could possibly read my comment as being a critique of Sony says far more about your own prejudices than any of mine. And you can take my place in hell, fgt., whatever that last abbreviation means.

    • darkgamer001

      I get what you’re saying Panurge.
      But there are also a lot of advantages to this. It allows some titles to keep on selling and not just get the bulk of sales in the first 2 weeks following launch
      It allows indies to get some of the limelight that they really need
      And ofc it allows gamers on a budget to experience these titles without resorting to piracy (ugh..)

      Slightly off-topic but kinda related….I’d argue that consumers who are content with pre-ordering games at full price without knowing if the game will actually be good or not do way more harm than consumers who adopt the “purchase later, save money” attitude.

      (Also, if only Sony would have a Flash Sale on those ridiculously overpriced memory cards. I have no incentive to buy anything until I can get more storage without paying those over-the-top prices. Until then my Vita will remain practically abandoned)

      I completely disagree. Sales like this are a great boon to not only consumers but also to developers and publishers. I’m not sure why one would argue that prices should stay high. Maybe you think it hurts the industry, but there’s enough evidence that things like this are nothing but a boon to everybody. Despite being easy to pirate on, sales on steam make purchasing games even easier and convenient, essentially making piracy a non-concern. Developers have stated how sales have greatly helped them. For instance: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/174587/Steam_sales_How_deep_discounts_really_affect_your_games.php

      “The teams who’ve discounted their games during this or previous Steam
      sales have found that the promotions not only attract more sales, but
      also generate more revenue and breathe new life into aging products.” I completely agree. There are still very old games that make a lot of sales due to discounts, sales keep games alive. And it isn’t bad to wait when a game is released. Too often have games been released as buggy or worse, unfinished. I myself have bought a few games new, and just ended up with regret because they released the game in an unstable state. You end up having to wait in order for the patches to even be able to play (it’s true, Saint’s row 4 was unplayable for a while until it was patched. It would always crash either before the start menu or during the second mission (the one where you’re the president right before the aliens attack). They taught me a hard lesson that most games should be put off until later to be bought, and I only have so much disposable income anyway. So of course I’m going to wait to buy when a game is on sale. Before steam I would always wait anyway because I couldn’t really afford to buy new, and so I would usually buy a used copy. But buying used meant that no money went to the developer. So I vastly prefer developers having sales and buying from them instead. It’s even cheaper than buying used and all of the money goes to them. If a game stays high priced, I won’t really be able to afford them. I’ll spend more on games when they are cheap than if they are expensive.

    I already have most of the games I want from this sale, but I’ll finally be getting LBP 1 and 2, and Flower. I might get Kickbeat too. I was planning on getting that on the Wii U, but the PS3 version lets you use your own music.

  • Razorfall

    I bought Ni no Kuni. I already have the game, but 5 bucks to have a digital version as a backup is totally worth it.
