This week you can find video game sales going on at Best Buy, GameStop, PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and the Nintendo Eshop, to name just a few. Regardless of your platform of choice, there's a good chance you'll find a deal on a game you want.
The biggest sale going on this week by far is the Mid-Year Sale on the PlayStation Store. It has low prices on (literally) hundreds of games ranging from indie titles to AAA blockbusters. So if you're in the market for PS4, PS3, or PS Vita games, that's definitely one to check out.

Free PC Games
If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber with a gaming PC, you'll definitely want to hit up Twitch.tv each day this month between now and July 18. All told, Prime members get 21 free games in July. You might want to hurry though, because the games are only available for a limited time, and some have already expired. And if you're not a member? We have a free solution to get you the games, too.
Mega Man Core Series (Xbox One)
Fans of the Blue Bomber are looking forward to Mega Man 11--especially considering how good it looks. That game doesn't come out until the fall, so now's a great time to catch up on every installment of the core series, which happens to be on sale on Xbox. Mega Man Legacy Collection bundles games 1-6 together, and the sequel contains games 7-10.
Assassin's Creed Origins (PS4)
If you missed out on last year's Assassin's Creed game because you'd grown tired of the series (or you just didn't get around to it), now is a great time to take a chance. This excellent, sprawling game is set in Ancient Egypt and will keep you busy for many hours.
- Assassin's Creed Origins for $36 ($30 with PS Plus)
