Flash the Cash! Sony Discounts Hundreds of PS4, PS3, and Vita Games in Europe

Posted by Sammy Barker

Don't get too excited about the next-gen selection, though

At this point, we think that it’s probably safe to say that Sony understands the value of a good old fashioned PlayStation Network sale. Realising that it has a bunch of binary code gathering dust on a server somewhere, the platform holder has now opted to hold regular discounts on a variety of classics – and there are another 100 savings up for grabs in Europe today.

While the PlayStation 4 selection is embarrassing to say the least, there are a number of top notch PlayStation 3 releases vying for your attention. Highlights include Burnout Paradise for £5.49, Mirror’s Edge for £3.99, and Sleeping Dogs for £7.99. Meanwhile, over in handheld land, the recently released Toukiden: Age of Demons looks like a steal at £14.99.

We’ve included the full roster of reductions in the space below. Take a look and let us know which of these titles – if any – you’ll be picking up in the comments section. Our wallet hurts just looking at this little lot.

Looks pretty OK, the only thing that bites is dragon age but then if there's a new dragon age coming on ps4 I'm inclined to wait for that.

@ztpayne7 I got it free with PS+ this month so was a touch surprised to see that discount.

It's a real shame the PS4 discounts aren't more significant. I was really pleased when the cost of Tomb Raider and Thief was slashed to 50% and would lap up similar discounts in future.

@Bliquid
Same here. Been checking since the game launched.
It received a price cut at some point on the US store, so I assumed it'd be discounted on the European store too, but alas...

@Alpha Just create a second account on your PS3. When you register use a different email address and say you live in the UK (or any other European country) - but you'll need a postcode. Google something like 10 Downing Street. Once done you'll have a European account.

Last remaining issue issue is how you get money. If you use a credit card it has to be one from over here. Best bet would be to try websites that let you buy vouchers for other countries (I get Japanese credit from www.play-asia.com for example) or maybe PayPal would work as you can pay for games using that now.

Any game you buy will also be playable on your main account too. If you have enough monies you could even get European PS+ (although yours is superior) like how I'm subscribed to the Japanese one too.
