Steam’s Summer Sale may be over, but as one source of dirt cheap games dries up, another bursts forth from the ground.
This time, it’s the PlayStation Store chucking bargains into the air like some digital Old Faithful. Sony’s online emporium has just opened the doors on a six week-long Totally Digital sale, which includes big discounts on titles for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. There are even discounts on some pre-orders.
We’ve trawled through the 100s of cut-price games so you don’t have to. Here are our recommendations.
NB: for many of the deals, PlayStation Plus subscribers can make an even larger saving (we’ve put both prices on applicable titles below). So if you’re not already a member, now might be a good time to pull the trigger.
One of the scariest games available on PS4, Outlast will appeal to anyone who’s made it through P.T. and Alien: Isolation with their pants intact and yearns for more of the same. In the role of an investigative journalist sticking his nose into some dodgy goings-on at a remote mental health institution, you quickly find yourself the prey in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the facility’s residents – and all while armed with nothing more than a camcorder.
The game’s best mechanic – you must balance using the camera’s night vision mode with the number of batteries you have left – makes this first-person adventure a nail-biting experience.
