Great. Black Friday beat us to a pulp, then we had Cyber Monday spit on us while we were down, now the 12 Deals of Christmas wants to take our clothes of us and leave us broke, naked, and helpless in the street. Oddly enough, we’re pretty cool with it.
There’s a new promotion running on the UK/EU side of the PlayStation Store this month, as announced by Sony on the PlayStation Blog. The popular 12 Deals of Christmas promo is making its way back, as well as a the Buy One Get One Free offer which appeared last year.
The 12 Deals of Christmas starts off with Square Enix’s Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary Edition. It’s down to £21.99 on PS4, and will only be available for the next 48 hours. Once those 48 hours are up, Lara Croft will be swapped out for another game that’ll run at a cheaper rate for the same time. Simples.
Then there’s the BOGOF deal. Unfortunately it’s not across every game, but instead a sizeable selection of PS4 and PS3 titles. Yes, you read that right: no PS Vita offer. Bah, humbug! The BOGOF deal will allow you to get the cheapest game of the two you select for free, though the promotion only works on single-platforms; you can’t buy a PS4 game and a PS3 game and still take part in the promotion, sadly.
We do love a good bargain here at Pure PlayStation, so we’re pretty chuffed about this. Plus, Rise of the Tomb Raider for £21.99? Pfft, it’s not even a question according to our very own Jason Frye who reviewed the game recently.
