Sony today launched its latest PlayStation Network flash sale, this one focused on games that feature a female protagonist.

Because that's the only criteria for games to be included, there's a lot of variety in genres. Among the highlights are Portal 2 for $5, Beyond Good & Evil HD for $3.50, Bayonetta for $8, and Mirror's Edge for a paltry $2.25. A pair of Resident Evil games are also included: Resident Evil Code: Veronica X (the HD re-release for PS3) is $6, while Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is only $1.50. Other games of note include Sanctum 2 for $3.50 and Skullgirls Encore for $5. No matter what you choose, you're looking at a very reasonable price.

In addition to games, movies are included in the sale. All of the Resident Evil movies can be rented for as little as $3, and the same goes for both Kill Bill films, which you can buy for $7.

Check out a full list of games included in the sale below.

Just downloaded Beyond Good and Evil HD. Played it 11 years ago the day it was released, and am now in nostalgia glory. This game is so beautiful, fun and creative, it's beyond words, pun intended. For anyone even thinking about playing it, please do. It's only $3.50, give it a try.

Was there ever a male-protagonist focused only PSN sale?

Because that's what gender equality is all about.

Where's Resident Evil 2 in the sale!?? I've been waiting for that game to go on sale. Guess I'll just have to keep waiting to give Capcom some money.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Definitely worth it a $8. Plus, the only thing I ever saw was longer load times which sucks but not to the point that $8 is too much to ask.

You'd be better off buying Bayonetta 2 on Wii U since it includes the first game. Bayonetta on PS3 is horrible, and I say that as a PS3 fanboy.

There's some mildly interesting games on here, but nothing I don't already have on my HDD.

I had a feeling there was gonna be a flash sale this weekend after the horrible weekly deals, but... I was hoping for something more diverse and recognizable.

If you still don't have them, do yourself a favour and get the Resident Evil games and Bayonetta.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Yes, but this is an article about PSN Flash Sales, and Bayonetta 2 is not available for PS, so that comment has no relevance here. If you have a Wii U, sure, get it, but not many people have it, and not many will buy it for Bayo 2 alone... If Nintendo were to start making more new IP's... Or even a Zelda remake collection (first till Majora)... That would tip the scales way more favourably...

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I'm sorry but whenever there is an opportunity to have a better version or a series all on a console that is ALWAYS relevant.

I know for a fact a large number of people just like me have all the systems instead of picking sides and like to know these things.

For instance a few weeks ago Eternal Sonata was on sale on XBL but the PS Version has more content. You bet your (censored) that I posted that information on the sale.

MORE information is never wrong.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> The people with all systems don't need to be reminded about that. Everytime if everytime there is an article about a specific platform sales, I'd go there warning people that X and Y games are free on PS+/XBLG or 3 $ on Steam or Nintendo's e-shop, I would just start a war for no reason.

For me I don't mind it, I have no problem with multiple systems, I'd own them all if I didn't have other priorities in life to attend to right now, but you know many people will have and start a war just because of that.

@VenkmanPHD @DiamondDM13 it's not always about picking sides. Sometimes its about not having my $2000 lying around to spend on video games.

<< LINK REMOVED >> ***1,100$ actually. And that's cool we all have different priorities. Most people I've seen online though are so loyal to one brand they'd rather die than buy both.

And it is exactly that point that brings me back to my own. You want the best bang for your buck. So do I. So do we all.

So as a gamer who ensures he is aware of what system has what content for any given game, and what deals are posted every week/weekend I feel somewhat of an obligation to my peers to inform them that there may be a better deal on system X

I don't care who buys it, but I want the knowledge out there, because I know I would greatly appreciate being told "Hey, you can get GTA V on PS4 for 15$ off, but X1 has a deal where you digitally get 1, 2, london, 3, 4, EfLC, &5 for 70$"

(I Wish)

@DiamondDM13 I guarantee someone out there doesn't know about getting Bayonetta 1 on Wii U but is gonna buy the 2nd one.

That Wii U version has more content too. They'd be pis s ed to find that out too late.

Don't expect any flash sale games for PS4, they all fairly new...at the most you will find some for like $7 maybe $5 if you are on plus...but for some crappy games...the only good one I ever saw was Injustice League for $8 not too long ago.

*sigh* Shame I can't get these games for PS4. I'd love to play Code Veronica again. I may not have a PS4 yet, but I can still buy the games off PSN.

Quite the steal! If I want already getting it for free on the Wii U, I'd be all up in that Bayonetta deal.

I'm guessing that isn't for the UK (as usual).
