Flash sales in gaming are usually referred to Valve’s Steam Summer Sales that offer cool games at incredible price cuts. However, starting this summer, Valve has changed the way Summer Sale works and flash sales are gone for the foreseeable future. It appears that Sony is taking some cue from the popularity of Steam summer sales and applying it to PlayStation Store for PlayStation gamers.
Although it isn’t the first time Sony is having a flash sale, there are a few titles that are currently on sale that you must buy if you don’t own them already. You can see a full list of the items that are on flash sale here, but below are some of the recommended ones that you just have to get.
The Last of Us Remastered
Do I even have to say anything about this groundbreaking title? First released on PlayStation 3, this once-in-a-lifetime PlayStation exclusive was later released on PlayStation 4 as a remastered edition and garnered just as much popularity as the original on PlayStation 3, which had incredible graphics to begin with.
If you own a PS4, you must experience this remarkable game with a heartbreaking story set in a post-apocalyptic world. Remember, this is not your typical zombie game. And you will be missing out if you are letting this opportunity to buy the game at just $7.99 slide.
Destiny: The Taken King – Legendary Edition
Just like The Last of Us isn’t yet another zombie shooter, Destiny: The Taken King is not yet another sci-fi shooter. It has a long enough story that you can dive into — alone or co-op with your friends — and wonderful landscapes to explore and fight against your enemies. In PvP mode, you can find hundreds of thousands of players around the world and with a honed skill, play against other players with your guardian and weapon of choice.
The Legendary Edition comes with all DLCs included. At $24.59 instead of $59.99, you’ll have plenty of content in the game to spend hours after hours exploring the Destiny universe.
Metro: Last Light Redux
You think you’ve seen all variations of a post-apocalyptic world? Wait until you’ve played the acclaimed Metro series. Both Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light’s definitive versions — suffixed with ‘Redux’ — are on sale at the same price of $7.99. If a lonely world is your thing, you probably shouldn’t miss this one out.
More PS3 Titles
The flash sale has more PS3 titles on sale right now, and because I’m not playing on PS3 these days, I haven’t checked them out extensively. However, there are some good titles like Bully, BioShock, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and more that you may find attractive given the discount they’ve got.
The flash sale will last until July 19, 2016. So grab whatever title you’re interested in while you can.
Which one of the above games do you recommend most to new PS4 players?
