If you’ve got nothing to play this weekend – and, seriously, how have you managed to clear your backlog and do you have any tips? – then Sony’s just dropped a Weekend Offer on the PS Store which sees a number of PS5 and PS4 game prices slashed by up to 75 per cent. The main participant is 2K and Rockstar, but you can also nab Dying Light 2: Stay Human for £43.99/$47.99.
The biggest highlight in terms of discount size is Borderlands 3, which is 75 per cent off and therefore just £11.99/$14.99. Other decent savings include PGA Tour 2K21 for £12.49/$14.99 and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI for £7.49/$8.99. The Mafia Trilogy is potentially also worth a punt at £24.99/$29.99 – especially with news of a fourth instalment emerging this week.
You can find the full list of deals through here, and remember there are still a bunch of other big sales live on the PS Store right now, including one for Golden Week. Let us know if you’re planning to pick anything up in the comments section below.
The games on the new PS+ tiers HAVE to be revealed sometime in the next fortnight (Asia launch Monday May 23rd) so no chance I'm touching anything that goes on sale right now, even if they're on my wishlist!
@themuckman Asia and JP will probably have a different game list than EU and NA--we've already experienced Now having vastly different lists between regions.
The PS4/PS3 games are likely just the ones already in Now, plus the ones already announced to be added. https://psnowguide.com/
I suspect it's only the classic game list that's unknown, none of those games are on sale so I'd say you're safe to pick up something you're interested in.
@Milktastrophe true, I'd imagine the bulk of the offering will be the same across all regions with a few differences.
But even with that in mind, we're only a few weeks behind them and I'd rather not get pissed off right at the start by buying up a few games now that end up on there in June!
@themuckman I cannot believe we’ve not had any more announced yet, it’s completely crazy to me.
I remember when PS exclusives were discounted up to 90% during the PS4 era. Now Sony has taken the Nintendo route and not only increased the prices of their exclusives but the maximum discount they reach is 29% (49$) which imo is very expensive for some of these games.
@itsfoz Why announce now when they can do that much closer to release? It's pointless to announce everything when the service is nearly a month away.
@AdamNovice Because people don’t decide to put monthly or annual monies towards a subscription service just before said service gets released. Of course they should be letting its user base know well ahead of time for us to be able to weigh up the choice and decide which suits us.
Psn storescalper : mafia trilogy: 29$
Microstore xbox consumer friend: mafia trilogy: 20$
Keep doing the good work sony.
@AdamNovice It's only 16 days until the Asia start date. Just over two weeks and no announcements about any games apart from the initial handful. Wondering whether the stacking option being stopped has led to the lack of promotion or maybe the marketing department are on holiday.
Maybe Sony is waiting to close the deal on square so their ps3/ps2/ps1 library can be featured on ps+ premium. 🤞🤞🤞
I want to get Alienation but I'm not paying 20$ for that.
Cmon Sony; drop that to 5$ and we have a deal!
@sword_9mm it's a lot of fun - very underrated game imo.
Anyone think we'll get EA play as part of this revamp? Couple on there I wouldn't mind playing.
@themuckman EA Play isn't part of the new PS+. Keep in mind, game pass is 50% more expensive than PS+ Premium so they're able to include extra services like that.
You could just do a year of PS+ Premium plus EA Play and it would be cheaper than a year of game pass.
@Vladspartan Uh what? Mafia Trilogy is $29 on both Steam and PSN and full price on Xbox right now. It's never been lower than $29 for Xbox too. You realize Sony doesn't set the sale prices for games they don't publish right? Some of you are such clowns and say the dumbest ***** to take shots at Sony.
@Milktastrophe ah ok, would have to subscribe separately then as you say.
I'm sure I'll have way too many games anyway to make sense paying even more for a few more games which is why I was hoping for the freebie.
This. Not buying any games until I see whats on the new PS Plus.
@DEDE1973 even Steam sales don't tend to be as cheap as they used to. I saw some data while back that the 90% sales are rarely worth it for the developers compared to a 50% sale.
@mucc I believe Sony does control the discount price of third party games. To get a game on a sale on the PS store, a developer has to wait for Sony to invite them to take part in a sale, and then Sony offers them a maximum discount percentage and the developer can choose particular discount levels up to that maximum.
@ThomasHL if that's true, the maximum allowed discount for the golden week sale is 90% off. But also if that were true, why does Sony advertise the max discount as 75% off instead of 90% off?
Sales almost always have games with a much steeper discount than what the sale advertises as the max discount. And before anyone says, there are AAA games with these huge discounts, not just super cheap indies--Tales of Zestiria is 90% off.
It also seems to be untrue that publishers can't discount their games whenever they want. Right now Fallout 4 GOTY and Rifftrax are both on sale, neither of which is part of any of the current sales. To be included in one of the official sales, maybe they have to be invited, but clearly they can discount the games independently of an official Sony sale.
Everyone’s desperate for these tiers to be revealed but surely the reason they haven’t is there could be big differences between regions. Those that already have plus I’m not expecting big differences from the games already up.
@Robinsad I agree, but still - until they're revealed there's no point buying anything imo.
Is it a twin stick or a click to shoot?
I love the old 360/ps3 twin stick stuff but I'm not a big fan of the Halo type games.
Sony is waiting to the last minute to reveal the games on the new PS Plus Tiers to bleed us for as much $$$ as possible. Be patient everyone. Soon we will know what games are in the subscription service.
Bleed us? How so?
@TotallySpectacul By enticing us to buy games at a discounted price that will be available through the new PS plus tiers. I am not bitter. Just be patient if you plan to enjoy PS Plus “Game Pass”.
@themuckman imagine it will be just all the games previously added to ps+
that would be "so SONY" like.
Looks like a decent collection. Ubisoft + being added to the package sweetens the deal.
