This one’s only available in the US, but this PlayStation Store flash sale offers some excellent discounts.
Summer sales. They’re great, aren’t they? Before the big autumn/winter release season hits, it’s a chance to pick up some great games with some deep discounts.
The new PlayStation Store flash sale isn’t the only sale on the go at the moment – there’s an August sale just finishing on the PlayStation Store, while there are three sales on the Xbox Store, among others – but it’s yet another opportunity to snag some games.
(And if you prefer your discounts to be 100%, then two amazing indie games are currently free on the Epic Games Store, Codemasters’ 2015 racer Dirt Rally is free on the Humble Store, and Two Point Hospital is having a free weekend on Steam.)
If there’s anyone who hasn’t played it yet, the complete edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available with a healthy 70% discount. The ever-amusing Hitman 2, from developer IO Interactive and (new) publisher Warner Bros. is also included in the PlayStation Store flash sale, with 50% off.
You’ll save 25% on Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, but if you prefer your racing a little more realistic, desert rally game Dakar 18 is 60% off. Meanwhile the combination of management sim and gritty detective stories, This is the Police and its sequel are 75% and 50% off respectively.
