Bargain Gamer: PS Store Flash Sale Ends 1/22

The PS Store is having a flash sale this weekend!  The sale is primarily indie games, with a few AAA titles like Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and Battlefield Hardline.  Everything is $5 or less.  Here are a few games that caught my eye.

jackbox 3

Jackbox Party Pack 2 & 3 – $4.99

A while back I brought up a sale on these games, but I didn’t expect them to be even further discounted this much.  If you didn’t grab these awesome party games before, this is one of the best deals.  Each pack comes with 5 different games, so you’re basically getting each game for a buck.

God Eater

God Eater: Resurrection – $4.99

When Monster Hunter moved towards the 3DS, Bandai Namco got into the genre with Gods Eater Burst on the PSP.  This is a remake of that game, updated with some features of its sequels.  The best way to explain this game is if Monster Hunter was fused with anime.  The combat system is similar but simpler, while there more of a focus on a storyline compared to MH.  If you want to get used to the big monster hunting genre before MHW comes out, this could be a stepping stone.

Dark Cloud 2

Dark Cloud 2 – $4.94

This Level 5 game first came out for the PS2 in 2002, and last year it was spruced up for a PS4 release with some graphical improvements and trophy support.  This is a dungeon crawler RPG where you actually get to build the world.  The dungeons contain parts to build shops and houses that for villages that you layout in a similar fashion as SimCity.  A massive crafting and weapon upgrading system will engross you for hours.

Honorable Mentions

  • The Escapists – $4.99
  • Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – $4.99
  • Mount & Blade: Warband – $4.99
  • Broforce – $3.74
  • Rogue Galaxy – $4.99
  • PaRappa the Rapper Remastered – $4.94

Hopefully you’re paying close attention to this blog because the sale ends Monday morning (January 22) at 8 AM PST, so about 36 hours from when this is posted!

Bargain Gamer: Black Friday Round-Up *UPDATED 11/23/2017*

*UPDATED 11/23/2017*  Most store sales are live online as of midnight!

*UPDATED 11/21/2017*  The PS Store Black Friday Sale is now included!  Prices are for PS+ subscribers.  Note that PS Store purchases do not charge sales tax, so some sales may be better than going to a regular store.

*UPDATED 11/17/2017*  Gamestop’s Black Friday deals have been added!

To make up for not having anything last week, I’ve put together a compilation of video game sales happening on Black Friday!  Many sales have been released or leaked, so check out all the available catalogs here.

Since most stores have similar pricing for their sales, I’ll be organizing the list by item, instead of by store.  If a store has something different than the rest, I’ll make sure to note it.  Stay tuned for updates as more sales are unveiled!

Consoles & Accessories

Nintendo Switch

Unfortunately, there aren’t any discounts on the Switch, not even any special bundles to sweeten the deal.

Nintendo 2DS Ocarina of Time Bundle $79.99  (Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop)

This bundle comes with a special Link styled 2DS (green with gold buttons), along with the 3DS version of Ocarina of Time.  A cheap way to enter the 3DS family if you haven’t yet!

For those wanting the best 3DS Nintendo has to offer, Gamestop is selling the New Nintendo 3DS XL for $140.

XBOX One S 500GB $189.99 (Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Kohls, Gamestop, Newegg)

At Target you also get a $25 Target Gift Car, and at Kohl’s you’ll get $45 Kohl’s Cash.  An even better deal if you regularly shop at these stores.

PS4 1TB $199.99 (Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Kohls, Gamestop, Newegg)

Again, Kohl’s has a special bundle of $60 Kohl’s Cash with purchase and Gamestop will give a $50 gift card.

Also, Gamestop is selling a PS4 Pro 1TB for $350.

PS4 & XBOX One Controllers $39.99 (Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Kohls, Gamestop, Newegg)

Controllers rarely get any cheaper than this, even on Amazon.

XBOX Live & PS+ Memberships $49.99 (Target, Gamestop)

The traditional $10 off on subscriptions make Black Friday the perfect time to renew.

Also, Amazon Prime and Gamestop currently (as of 11/20/17) has PS+ year long memberships for $40.  Not sure if it’s a Black Friday deal, but definitely the cheapest it will be for a long time, so now is a great chance to stock up on a subscription for next year.  Sorry XBOX users, I didn’t see a similar deal for XBOX Live subscriptions.
