PlayStation Summer Sale Discounts A Bunch Of Games In North America

By Ishaan . June 23, 2014 . 12:31pm

Sony are running a Summer discount sale on the PlayStation Network in North America. As part of the sale, a number of games will be available at discounted rates. Some of these are:


  • Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD
  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
  • Deception IV: Blood Ties
  • Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends


You can view the entire list of discounted games at this link. In addition to the discounts, Renegade Kids’ Mutant Mudds is available free for PS Plus subscribers.

  • Steam really puts to shame everyone else’s summer sale, and it’s literally everyone else who really need those sales. Good discounts for Vita games could have boosted the system for summer.

      Nobody can pimp-slap devs like Gabe can.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      already spent $100 in just two days. gabe knows how to take my money.

        Get excited to buy games on sale you’ll probably never play. I look through my steam library sometimes and it feels like games just magically buy themselves in my sleep or something.

        • Ni ~Algidus~

          actually. i’m only buying games that i really want to play. I had a low end computer for the middle to the end of the last generation. now that i have a good rig my steam account will finally be active

          • SlickRoach

            Nice, I’d be more into PC gaming if I wasn’t limited to an ASUD laptop. But a decent gaming PC costs at least like $2000 (or at least the one I’m aiming for)

          • darke

            You have a different idea of ‘decent’ to me. :)

            I spend $2000 on a gaming machine every few years, but that’s overkill; I wouldn’t spend more then $1000 for a ‘decent’ machine to play games at 1080p or $2000 for a ‘decent’ gaming laptop.

            You can get PS4/XB1 equivalent performance out of $600 or so in parts for a PC nowadays.

          • SlickRoach

            Really? I have a friend who’s helping me build a gaming desktop PC from scratch this summer, and I figured it’d be in the higher up range to play console games in at least high to max settings. If I can get one for around the price you said I’d be joyous.

          • darke

            It only really gets obscene if you’re wanting to get the top-most of the top-most. There’s no point spending $1000 on a video card if a $600 one will get 90% of that; or a $300 will get 70% of that.

            If you’re building yourself, and looking at PC pricing you can usually tell the ‘sweet spot’ for prices; just before the big jump in cost where the performance doesn’t go much higher.

            If you want to game at 1080p because that’s the monitor/tv resolution you’re targeting you can probably look around for ‘gaming pc’ reviews, things like the box on eurogamer that’s approximately the same specs as the XB1/PS4 and just spend a little more on the specs, slightly large cpu, better GPU (this is probably the most important), more memory or whatever.

            It’s been a few years since I’ve looked, but some sites do videocard reviews by basically finding the highest quality settings for various games that you can play on it; you may want to see if you can find some of them with games you’re wanting (FPS, RPGs, whatever) and find an appropriately priced video card from there. Personally I wouldn’t spend more then $600 for a video card, but I can see why people would buy a titan if they want to game in 4k. :P

      The price for Lords of Shadow 2 here beats the hell out of the “sale” price it has on Steam.

      • So one game makes a rule?

        • The DW8 price also beats the one Steam had for it when it was a daily deal.

          • So two games make a rule?

          • They don’t really make a rule, but think for a second. How many of these games are also on Steam? What portion of them are discounted more deeply on PSN? What portion of them have the same price?

            It’s not as clear-cut as you’re making it out to be. Sure, we don’t have the entire store discounted, but what is discounted is comparable or exceeds Steam where they overlap.

  • Hunnybear

    underwhelming… I am waiting for an inevitable Atlus sale to buy all these re-released classics just to have them digitally :)

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      There’s an Atlus sale at least once every two months. You don’t need a summer sale for that~.

  • murinto

    Seeing deception 4 on sale for 20 bucks is killing me, I got it on launch and still haven’t touched it. congrats sony I’ve only gotten that feeling from steam sales before, it looks like you’re getting there too.

    • Afternoon Intergalactic

      I got excited when I saw your comment, but then realized that it was $20 for the vita version with PSplus. It’s still like $40 for the PS3 version. Sigh.

      • murinto

        owch! Looks like I got you good. It doesn’t make sense that they don’t discount it on ps3 as well, even if it is to a lesser degree.

      • darke

        Yeah, at the cost of the PS3 version, they really should be giving us the Vita version for free. :?

  • Strain42

    Escape Plan is on sale. Maybe I’ll finally get that for my Vita. I bought the DLC for it when it was on sale for 25 cents but never had the game for it xD

    • ShadowDivz

      The hell? First, i’ve heard of someone buying DLC for a game they don’t have.

      I mean, i’ve heard about buying games before a console. But DLC before the game? Is this a common occurrence for you?

      • Strain42

        Nope. This was the first time I’d ever done it. I had a Vita, and I had 25 cents, but I wasn’t quite in a place financially where buying Escape Plan would’ve been a smart purchase. Why pass up a great deal on DLC for a game you know you plan to get someday?

        • ShadowDivz

          Oh, well if you planned to get it eventually then thats fine. I thought you were just browsing the store, saw some cheap DLC and thought “Oh sweet!” and bought it. xD

  • Kornelious

    Well I already have Dynasty Warriors, and was planning to buy Deception as a physical game. Though it’s nice to know Liberation is on discount :)

  • eilegz

    nothing special… nothing good for vita neither

  • I’m surprised Konami decided to drop the price of LoS 2 that low on PSN, but not Steam.

    • darke

      It’s quite possible that it’s simply selling that much better on a PC at the moment that they don’t feel they need to discount the PC as much to get sales.
