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.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
