PS4 Holiday Flash Sale Is Live Right Now On PSN
Sony bolsters its holiday sale with a flash sale.
Just in case the big PSN holiday sale going on didn't offer enough ways to blow your money, Sony has launched another promotion on top of it. A limited-time flash sale is now live on the PlayStation Store, discounting a number of PlayStation games just before Christmas. However, unlike most flash sales on PSN, this one will last a big longer than usual.
Given that there's a lot on sale in the broader holiday sale, the flash sale is somewhat limited. It consists almost exclusively of PS4 games, but there are some good ones on sale. Persona 5, which we named our #2 Game of the Year for 2017, is down to $39.59. You'll also find Yakuza remake Yakuza Kiwami for $20, Star Wars: Battlefront II for $35, South Park: The Fractured But Whole for $30, Assassin's Creed: Origins for $40, Gran Turismo Sport for $39.59, XCOM 2: War of the Chosen for $30, and Absolver for $20. If you're in the market for both Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2, they've been bundled together for $78, which isn't bad, considering the small discounts the digital version of WWII has seen so far.
Vita owners are completely out of luck with this flash sale, and there's very little in the way of PS3 discounts. PS3 owners can, however, pick up Persona 5 for $33. The two older platforms do have more games on sale as part of the existing holiday sale.
Rather than being a weekend-only event, this flash sale runs for a few extra days, ending on December 27 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. A day earlier, on December 26, we may see another set of deals added to the holiday sale, as we did this past week. That promotion offers additional discounts in many cases for PS Plus subscribers, but the flash sale offers the same pricing to all PSN members. You can see everything in the flash sale here.
